What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Port Orchard

Relatively quiet, though sound-proofing is virtually nonexistent. I usually do my shopping for good prices. No particular favorite businesses. I don't go out with family or friends.

this is a qiet neighborhood everyone sems to look out for everyone even if we don't know them. it is pret friendly

It's quiet at night. People mind their business. Somewhat close to the store. Great place to watch lightning storms

far enough from town to be quiet, but close enough to get to pretty quick. has enough gocery stores and restaurants close by.

Washington is pretty but very expensive to live here. I like the parks, places on the water, resources

Unique would be maybe the scenic view. My favorite restaurant is a small Italian bistro. And I like going to the movies
