About Margaret Warren
Every day I wake up and check what is happening on the beach. Every night I see the lights of downtown Seattle. I watch the ducks and geese swim, hear the sandpipers calling, the crows and gulls flying and landing in the nearby trees. . I have always enjoyed reading, music, gardening, baking, learning, and teaching. I do volunteer work at a school helping with violin, and at our local library helping with weeding. I play violin in the orchestra for our church's holiday cantatas. I sometimes sing in the choir. My husband and I are retired and celebrated our 50 year anniversary in 2017.
Margaret Warren purchased this Mobile Home in 2006

Breathing views and wonderful sea air!
Even in the winter this place is so charming. There is a spectacular view in every direction. The community is friendly and the property owners charming and lovely. The accommodations are neat as a pin. There is only one bedroom but the living room has a fold our couch. Come and you will enjoy yourselves.
Thank you Peg & Ken
We enjoy living in this community and are delighted to be able to share with guests who appreciate being here!
Great place to stay. Fantastic view with beach access right outside your door. Some issues with the trailer, but Margret took care of them right away. Margaret was a fantastic host, allowed us all the privacy we needed. Sold our house and needed a place to stay for a month. This turned out to be the perfect solution. I would recommend this place to stay for long term or for a shorter stay.
This place was perfect. We were very busy this trip, and wished we had more time to just to stay at our room. That happens. We will be booking anytime we stay in the area. Just a beautiful location and friendly host.
My Facebook Friends Are Jealous of My Pictures!
My husband, golden retriever and I had the most wonderful time staying at this property and being hosted by Margaret! While it is not a "fancy" property we are not fancy people! The views are beyond description in the early morning, midday and at night.
We greatly appreciated Margaret's timely communication, her kindness and generosity while we were on site and especially that she allowed our dog to vacation with us! So what if the WiFi is a bit spotty on occasion. Look at that view - unplug people!!
We also enjoyed the Manchester Pub (live music on Saturday nights), the Manchester Grill as well as various locales in both Seattle and Port Orchard.
(My only "heads-up" to web viewers is that current pictures (08/19) show the same bedroom but with different bedspreads and so initially, while quickly flipping through photos, I thought it was a 2-bedroom. Not that we needed 2 beds and the written description is totally accurate.)
I don't know where anyone else can find "ocean front property" at this price! You should go!
You have your choice of bedspread in the bedroom. If you use the fold out hide a bed you can use the second bedspread there.
We are waterfront property on Puget Sound. Our beachfront is sandy and the water is cold and salty. If you want large waves and miles of sand do visit The Pacific Ocean beaches. The Olympic Mountains are also a day trip away.
A hidden gem in Manchester
Margaret was a very friendly and accommodating host. The place was clean, comfortable and quite. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could think of. It’s a great location and the view is amazing one of the best!! We will be back.
As I read this review I am hearing the sound of the water lapping on the sand and a motorboat leaving the dock. We also get bird sounds like crows, geese, and ducks. These are part of the sounds that we have. Most of them come from happy people and birds. Hope this gives you a tiny slice of sounds of Manchester.
