Retsil and Manchester

This area has tons of waterfront without it being highbank. Typically you are looking at Bremerton, Bainbridge Island, Blake Island or Seattle from just about any spot and peek a boo views are pretty common.- It is also the place that made me fall in love with Port Orchard and call it home.


Manchester Beach – my favorite place to go crabbing!

After you leave downtown, and following the water, your first area is Retsil- named after Washington State’s Veterans Home.  20051111-071801-pic-333236636

The homes here were once the crown glory of old Sidney (original name of Port Orchard). The road stretches along the waterline around the peninsula, past the State Park that was once a Fort to the small feeling big neighborhood of Manchester.

There is quite a mix of homes here as well, water front, water view, mountain views (Olympics or Cascades), lots of planned neighborhoods.


But even with all those variables, this area is very consistent. It was one of the first to pull out of the depressed prices as well.

Shari worked very hard to sell our house ,the pictures she had taken were remarkable. She would go out of her way to answer any questions that we had. Our house would probably have sold if we listen to her advice. Due to personal reason, we decided that we... (more)
