Welcome to Harbor view master suite! The private master suite is located on the 2nd floor our of home, in a quiet, isolated corner of the house partly above the garage. The shared main keypad entrance opens up directly to the flight of stairs that will take you up to the suite. The suite is best suited for solo travelers, but we can accommodate an additional guest for a fee, for up to a week maximum.

The building is equipped with a commercial-grade HVAC system and central heat and air conditioning, which is rare for the area. There is a ceiling fan and portable HEPA air purifier in the room. We are on Manchester city water and have a septic system for wastewater treatment.

The suite is outfitted with a queen mattress, double blackout curtains, and blackout blinds. Earplugs and a white noise machine are available.

The work-from-home elevated desk setup can be converted to a dining setup for two at request. There are sitting areas both inside and outside on the spacious patio.

The kitchenette is stocked with pantry essentials, a PUR water filter, basic food prep tools, and appliances. We are happy to swap out your used dishes and utensils so you don't need to wash them.

We are happy to replenish towels as needed and run a load of laundry for you for every week of your stay, or for a cost of $10 per load.

We set up the space to host family & friends, and over time, began hosting returning Airbnb guests who wanted priority access to Shiyi's baked goods :) When you stay with us, we'll treat you like family; we'll be checking in to make sure that you're comfortable and having a great time. The only thing we ask in return is that you treat the space and the property with the same level of respect by following our house rules.

Most people who visit will come by car, but it is possible to get around without one using local public transportation or rideshares, with careful planning.

Public transit from SeaTac Airport:

1) Take the Link train into Pioneer Square. Walk to Pier 50 and take the Kitsap Fast Ferry to Southworth. *Note: This ferry does not run on Sundays and has a limited schedule.

2) Take the #560 bus to Westwood Village for a transfer onto the C-Line bus which will take you to the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal in West Seattle (~45mins total). Walk on to the ferry to Southworth.

3) The Bremerton-Kitsap Airporter shuttle service will drop off at the 76 gas station in Port Orchard (234 Bravo Terrace SE, Port Orchard, WA 98367). Take a rideshare service or the #8 into town and then the #86 bus.

Local public transit: Kitsap Transit bus #86 will pick up or drop off at the bottom of our street and can take you to and from Southworth Ferry Dock and downtown Port Orchard. Check bus schedule for limited operating times.

Other options: App rideshares operate in the area and costs between $15-20 for a car, one-way, to/from Southworth Ferry Dock. If needed, we can arrange pickup/drop off for you at locations within a reasonable radius!

There are excellent routes for road cycling around the area and you’ll often spot commuters and recreational riders on the ferries. As avid cyclists, we would be happy to offer tips and help you plan out your rides!
