The Sun House at Freshwater Bay.

Come enjoy the Sun House at Freshwater Bay. Situated oceanfront in Washington’s most beautiful no-bank beach community, the Sun House is the perfect place to unwind from city life. Listen to ocean swell endlessly grooming the river rock and sand beach from your second story accommodation. Taste the salt air, and let your stress melt away.

Look west, out to the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the Pacific Ocean, then let your eyes follow the distant shore of Vancouver Island, past Victoria, and the San Juan Islands, to the marvelous peaks of the North Cascades. In summer, the sun streaks across the sky, warming the beach and illuminating the offshore commercial shipping traffic, before finally setting over the glistening ocean horizon.

It’s a short stroll down the beach to the mouth of the Elwha River. Here Coho and Chinook salmon offer the viewer and angler seasonal delight. With the rhythmic cycle of the salmon, come bald eagles, a plethora of seabirds, and river otters. If you get lucky, catch the Orcas playing out front, or more commonly spot herring balls, sea lions, and seals fulfilling their roles within the unique coastal ecosystem.

For those who come for recreation, the opportunities are limitless. From mountain biking and sailing, to hiking, mountaineering and fishing, the greater Port Angeles area has an amazing variety of activities at your fingertips. Widely known among surfers for having the best point breaks in Washington State, the Elwa River mouth is prone to deliver when tide and swell align in harmony. On more mellow days, enjoy Kayaking, Tide Pools, and exploring the many miles of beach to your heart’s content.

Only 15 minutes away, the Olympic National Park stands in awesome splendor. From glaciers to rainforests, the park is truly one of a kind. In winter, enjoy downhill and Nordic skiing at Hurricane Ridge. When the summer rolls around, enjoy thousands of miles of hiking routes through protected wilderness, or simply drop by Lake Crescent for a swim in perhaps the most beautiful lake in the continental United States.

Approach the property via Place Road, as it switches back past the mouth of the Elwha River, narrowing, then snaking amongst the storm swept cedars. Weave past a handful of beach houses to your private getaway. You will know you found paradise the second you arrive.

The Sun House is 1196 square feet of beachfront fun. It encompasses the top half of a house completed in 2005. The new construction features massive weather pane windows, vaulted ceilings, hardwood countertops, and a gorgeous river rock gas fireplace. Every room in the house has unstoppable views out over the Strait of Juan de Fuca and 100 feet of low bank frontage. In the evenings, enjoy a glass of wine on the huge hardwood deck, or set out a romantic dinner of fresh crab.

Please note: Renters must be comfortable with a tall staircase to enjoy this property, but the view is worth the climb.

About Jacqueline Kaseler

We are a young family with a passion for the outdoors. The Sun House at Freshwater Bay is a dream escape for us. On our visits, we enjoy crabbing, surfing, fishing, hiking in the park, mt. biking, and alpine ski touring around the Hurricane Ridge area.

Jacqueline Kaseler purchased this house in 2006

Why Jacqueline Kaseler chose Port Angeles

This was our primary residence from 2006 to early 2012. We moved closer to Seattle based on work schedules. It is our pleasure to offer the property for vacation rental, so others may enjoy what we came to love.

What makes this house unique

The beach. The beach. The beach... and the view.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5
We spent most of our time on the deck here because the view is so amazing and there's a lot to watch from dogs on the beach to the commercial boat traffic - bring your binoculars. It's a rocky beach but great for walking. The amenities in the house were adequate and it was very clean. It is close enough to town so you can run in for groceries too. We really appreciated that we were allowed to bring our dog, thanks!

The best place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5
The home is really nice and comfortable, the views are amazing. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay, couldn't pick a better spot to just relax on the coast and take lots of walks along the beach. I agree with the below reviewer that another mirror would be nice. The home is clean, well-maintained and was well-stocked with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. Wifi was much appreciated. Thank you!!

Great location

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely time at the sun house. The view is just spectacular! It was a really good home base to be able to explore the peninsula. Because of all the windows, the house feels larger than it is. I would recommend having some mirrors in other rooms. The only mirror is in the 1 bathroom. We had 6 people trying to get ready and it would have been a lot easier if there were mirrors in the bedrooms. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to others. Thanks so much!

Fabulous sunhouse

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful property with incredible views. House is immaculate, tastefully decorated and has all the supplies needed for a short term stay. Beds are very comfortable and lots of good towels. Kitchen is laid out very well for cooking. The pictures don't do justice to the types and quality of the views. It was a pleasure doing business with the owner. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Sunhouse to friends and relatives and plan on coming back in the future.

Walks along Freshwater Bay were great and its a pleasant walk down to the mouth of the Elwah River. Easy trip back into Port Angeles; however, we never left the property because we just wanted to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5
What you see is really what you get at this amazing property. The place is very nice, open and with a fully equipped kitchen as well as nice living space/rooms. Everything is perfectly clean. But of course what makes it so lovely is the million dollar view! You can literally sleep with the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach, and waking up to this view every morning was the highlight of our vacation. It also helps that it's nicely located so it's a perfect base for exploring the peninsula. We were traveling with our 15 month old daughter and they provided a pack n' play, and there is also a little table/chairs for kids and many toys/books so no headaches there.
All in all we absolutely loved the place and gushed about it to everyone who would listen so we would definitely recommend it!

Wonderful Home--Amazing Views!!!

  • 5 of 5
When my youngest daughter said, "It's a million dollar view!" she was right. The Sun House is simply amazing...best view on Freshwater Bay. My family throughly enjoyed our two night stay, hiking, watching the sunsets and stars, relaxing. Olympic Nat'l Park was amazing too...hoh rainforest, Hurricane Ridge, 2nd Beach. Wow...what a vacation and what a home! Loved it!
