Overview

About the property

Serenity Shores is a lovely beachfront home on Diamond Point located between Port Townsend and Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula. Serenity is situated in a wonderful location with incredible views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Protection Island (wildlife sanctuary tours), Mt. Baker, Victoria B.C., Dungeness Spit and the most beautiful sunsets you've ever experienced.

Wake up to deer in the yard, baby seals on the beach, seagulls and magnificent eagles searching for their breakfast. Adventuresome beach walks, sunbathing, water activities and relaxation are just the start of your fun. But you'll want to venture out and explore this beautiful Peninsula area with all it has to offer. Enjoy the breathtaking experience of Hurricane Ridge, the many hiking trails nearby in the Olympics, walk Dungeness Spit/play golf, or shop til you drop in nearby Port Townsend. Music festivals, fairs, wineries, lavender farms, shopping and restaurants (7-Cedars Casino) are right there. (Or hop on the ferry to Victoria for the day.)

Relaxing, sunbathing, beachcombing, boating, sleeping on the enclosed deck under the stars, BBQ on the beach or enjoy a cozy indoor fire (or beach fire) without even leaving Serenity can feel wonderful as well. Children, pets and smokers are always welcome of course!

NOTE: Serenity Shores Beachfront Home has been awarded the 2014 Best of Sequim Award in the Vacation Home Rental category by the US Commerce Association (USCA)!

Guestbook comments from the owner

FIVE STAR ~ Spent the weekend at Serenity Shores and it was a delightful experience. We had planned on Sunday dinner out, but it was so pleasant where we were at - we just purchased some food and had dinner at the beach house and enjoyed the surroundings. My dog wandered away and we were out looking for him. After a couple of hours a found notice was posted and several people contacted me that they knew where the dog was. A great beach house and a great community. You could not ask for more. Had a wonderful time.

Great Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect spot for a girls weekend. The 5 of us worked together and we do one "girls only" weekend a year. Serenity Shores was everything we expected and more. The view was incredible. The house was impeccably clean and had everything we needed. We watched eagles in flight, one very entertaining otter and were blessed with awesome weather!

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two dogs and myself had a wonderful time on the beach. The house is perfect for one couple and good for two couples. The drawback for two couples is that there is only one tub/shower in one of the two bathrooms. The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking. With the wall of windows facing the Straits you have an outstanding view from anywhere in the living room and kitchen. Our first day the crab season opened and there were several crab boats putting out their pots right in front of the house. Lots of sea birds and a brief appearance by a seal. A short trip to John Wayne Marina on Sequin Bay and we got to watch the crab boats off load their catch. We were relaxing so much that we never got out to eat and spent the last full day at the house. We are already planning a return visit.

Owner's Response: Morley ~ I'm so glad that you, your wife & pups had such a wonderful time at Serenity Shores. And it is great being right on the beach with the ongoing marine life and nature activities to entertain us. Hopefully you had time to do a little beach walking with your pups. There are so many wonderful things to enjoy in the area, I know that your next visit will be just as relaxing and enjoyable. Serenity Shores looks forward to your return in the near future! Best wishes ~ Cheri

Great beach location, clean, but ...

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous location right on the beach with gorgeous views of water, islands, early morning fishing boats. Loved strolling the beach collecting special rocks. The beach house has clever open concept layout that takes optimal advantage of the glorious views. However, it definitely needs updating; and the old fashioned vintage-type decor exacerbates this need. We expected a more modern interior or at least a beach motif. Just personal preference.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this to anyone, and we are hoping it is available next summer, we want to rent it again. My sisters and wanted to find a house that was big enough to hold all of us, but the main propriety was its location to the ocean. This home is right on the ocean, with a lot of sea life right in front of you. Probable the best thing we saw was an eagle carrying a heron right in front of us, he picked it up and then dropped it. Nature at it's best. We were celebrating our moms 80th birthday, and were planning a surprise party. We all love the ocean and we love to beach comb, and we found that perfect house. We found many treasures, and had a lot of fun. The house was very comfortable, and we had no problem with 8 of us. It would have been even better if it hadn't rained, then we could have slept under the stars in the wind screened room. Rain or shine, we had a good time.

Cheryl the owner was SO amazing. She sent me emails in advance with many ideas of things to do in the area. She also called to tell me we could use the phone, because cell service can be spotty, who does that, and to see if we were having fun. Who does that!!,Well someone who cares about their renters does.

So with that said.

Thank you Cheryl for everything!! It's the simple things that make things work!!

Owner's Response: Kelly ~ Thanks so much for the fantastic review and all of your wonderful compliments! I'm so happy that you and your family had such an enjoyable time at Serenity Shores and that your Mom's 80th Birthday turned out to be as special as you'd hoped! And she could enjoy all of the marine life activity with a "front row seat" in the living room. Kelly ~ Serenity Shores looks forward to your return this summer (or sooner). And the ongoing marine life show and all of the wonderful Olympic Peninsula activities will be there for you & yours to enjoy! My best to all ~ Cheri

Awesome Beachfront Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

The name of the property says it all, "Serenity Shores Beachfront Home!" The beach was only a few steps from the back deck and the home has amazing views from the large windows in the living room and kitchen. Sea otters & seals & dolphins were right in front of the home most of the time playing. My husband and I and our "Beagle", really enjoyed our stay.

Thank you Cheri for sharing your home with us.

Blessings,

Jeff and June & Elliott

Serenity Shores

  • 5 of 5

This home is located on Diamond Point in Sequim, it is an exceptional location with panoramic views of The Strait and an abundance of wild and marine life. The home is dated but very comfortable. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the time spent. Thank You!
