  • Dead lawn


    This old hut, converted into a "cabin", is merely OK as a building. The lawn, right up against the beautiful Puget Sound, is dead and dry, full of bugs and unpleasant. It should be green and cared for, a place to lounge in the sun and enjoy the view. The deck is nice, but too hot on a sunny afternoon... when you want to be in the cool grass. Quite a lot of money for a hot hut on the rocks.

    Manager's Response:

    Paul, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    -While we have professional landscaping care for the lawn biweekly, your visit occurred during a dry spell in the area
    -This home receives west-facing light, and umbrellas are provided to make the deck more comfortable
    - We provide instructions on how to use the UV filtering shades and air conditioning during the afternoon to mitigate heat
    -We've put a lot of effort into remodeling before welcoming guests, however, we are still open to any suggestions for future improvements!
    Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay

  • Perfect size for two.


    The home was very clean and had just about everything needed for a week's stay. The views from the deck are spectacular and there are plenty of local eating places nearby. We will stay there again.

  • Charming Beach Cottage


    This is the cutest little beach house located directly on the Sound; we could look across the water and watch the ferries coming and going. We were able to step out the sliding glass door and sun bathe on the spacious deck, swim in the Sound, and regretted not bringing our paddle board as this would’ve been the perfect location for paddle boarding. The cottage is very very clean and well appointed. The couches and the bed are very comfortable. But the highlight for me was the excellent service we received from the evolve team and the owner Kyle. I had accidentally locked us out of the cottage and called both the Evolve team and Kyle. Within 15 minutes a locksmith arrived to let us in. During our stay we had car problems, so I requested a late check out. Kyle graciously and immediately granted my request. The professionalism, the courtesy, and the swift response by both the evolve team and Kyle our very very impressive. If You are looking for a getaway in Bremerton I highly recommend this property.

  • Beautiful place, cheap flimsy furniture. The paddleboards and kayaks listed don't exist.


    The property manager does not promptly address your problem. He knew there were no kayaks or paddleboards but left them on the listing. Very disappointed about that. That is one of the reasons we chose this property.
