City Guide for Port Orchard, WA

Once called Sidney, Port Orchard was chosen by the U.S. Navy for the installation of what is now the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. Anchors away!

Port Orchard, WA is a pleasant community with a population of just over 11,000 residents. The county seat of Kitsap County, this town is just thirteen miles west of Seattle, and connects to the big city by way of the Washington State Ferry system through Southworth. Are there apple trees here? Not the type you'll pick right off of trees (but there are plenty to be found in grocery stores, so don't fret); instead, the port's name refers to the strait separating Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Peninsula. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with balconies in Port Orchard, WA

Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.

Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.

You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.

Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.

Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.

Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Port Orchard renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
