DIAMOND RETREAT: A HAVEN OF PEACE AND QUIET

Sequim House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Choose from many wonderful possibilities or you can just do it all: Take in the first sunrays with a cup of coffee on the East facing porch. Imagine waking up away from your life’s distractions in a cozy retreat with two large bedrooms, an inviting dining room, a modern kitchen, a comfortable living room with wood burning stove, two covered porches — facing East and West respectively, a wonderful garden, and an infinity of singing birds. Imagine a place with high ceilings; a look-out to sea from an armchair on the front porch or a ten minute walk to the beach where the islands of Puget Sound rise out of the ocean in the distance. The focal point is Protection Island, a magnificent rocky outcrop that is a Federally protected National Wildlife Refuge. Protection Island is known for its breeding colony of Tufted Puffin, rhinoceros auklets, and gulls. It is on the flyway for many migrating birds. Seals, sea lions, orcas, and other cetaceans are often seen nearby.

Nestled in the arms of Discovery Bay in the Olympic Peninsula, Diamond Retreat is a fully furnished home, decorated with original art by Northwest artists. It has a huge front porch with comfortable furniture, a nice front yard, and a back yard that borders Miller State Park.

If you feel ambitious, you can hop on your bike and explore the endless trails of the nearby Park, or simply take a walk on the meandering streets of the neighborhood and probably never see a car. A ten-minute walk will bring you to a private beach that goes on for miles in either directions, at the bottom of the cliff.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We enjoyed a clear day at Hurricane Ridge followed by a pint of beer at the local Port Angeles "Barhop". The bookstore clerk advised searching for sea glass on Ediz Hook. We found high tide coming in and the waves crashing to the shore. We stacked beach stone pyramids and wobbly towers, great memories. At 4 am the stars are brilliant, no street lights, just bright clear skies...

Jay is also an architect with his own practice and is also an artist, painting in encaustic (with beeswax). I am passionate about hiking, skiing, camping and sea kayaking.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Over the years, I have rented cabins near Sequim several times and have grown very fond of this area because there is sense of space. The mountains are nearby, yet the distance between mountains and shore is vast and offers much opportunities for walks and hikes. One of my favorite places is the Miller Peninsula state park, located adjacent to the house, and also the Dungeness Spit.

When I first visited the property, I remember stepping onto the huge porch and felt 'enrobed' by the silence (it was December 26 so there were no birds then!), and a deep feeling of peace. It was a wonderful experience. Within a month, I became the owner and with every visit since then, that sense of calm and space has grown. It is always so wonderful to be on the front east-facing porch, paying attention to the birds' songs, trying to see if there are different from previous visits.

This is a peaceful place with all the amenities. We had a great dinner cooked up in the well-appointed kitchen, walked the area at all times of day and watched the amazing celestial show at night. Easy access for exploring both Sequim and Port Townsend. We'll be back!!!
