Port Ludlow Reviews

3 reviews
I have lived in Port Ludlow for 7 years now and I love the peace and quiet, the friendly community environment and the surrounding nature and walking trails. The only thing I would like to change about Port Ludlow is maybe having better options to eat out, there are only 3 places to eat and they are expensive and mediocre quality at best.

It's a quiet but friendly neighborhood. With a beach less than a block away. Beautiful views and fishing. Love my little piece of Paradise.
It is a very safe place to live. No real problems that are noticeable.
