An excerpt from a guest's comments:

['Dangerously comfortable' is about the best we can do to describe this getaway...it was tough to push ourselves out the door every morning to go hiking. We've stayed in many VRBO listed accommodations and this is by far the most comfortable and well thought out place we've stayed in. The best sunrises we've ever seen! Thank you for sharing your great views with us.]

Please take a moment or two to read some of the other wonderful reviews from previous guests posted below!

We'd like you to know:

The Loft was designed and created by us for those of you looking for the ultimate getaway. Here you can relax in privacy, feel pampered while enjoying up-scale amenities, unobstructed views, and peaceful, natural surroundings.

Situated at the head of Sequim Bay at approx. 450 ft. elevation, The Loft offers a panoramic view of Sequim Bay, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the San Juan Islands and Mt. Baker. The view of the Strait provides an ever-changing view of many ocean bound ships. (We provide binoculars for you to enjoy the activity a bit closer up.)

The Loft itself is approximately 500 square feet in size and is the second story of a completely finished building which we use for storage and a workshop. Our home is also on the property, however the purposeful orientation of the two separate buildings allows for total privacy for our guests.

There is an inviting, separate and gated entrance leading around to the backside of the building housing The Loft. Once around the backside, you will find towering evergreens, a wonderful private patio with a hot tub and gas BBQ...and a beautiful view of Sequim Bay out into the Strait. Relax in the comfortable patio furniture and enjoy the pleasing ambiance of trees, water and solitude.

Beyond the patio and landscaped yard, and on the hills behind are tall evergreens that extend up to high peaks within Olympic National Park. It is not uncommon to have eagles flying overhead, deer in the lower grassy areas and visits from bunnies.

We originally envisioned building this space for our family and friends to use while visiting. So we wanted it to be very special even from the beginning. As the project progressed, we decided to offer it on VRBO (which we had used many times ourselves). So we doubled our efforts to create a place that felt warm, cozy, romantic and luxurious. We even provide spa towels and robes!

We decorated The Loft using vibrant and inviting colors. We used natural slate, granite, a heated tile floor, upscale fixtures and solid cherry woodwork/trim throughout to accomplish our vision. One of our favorite features in The Loft is the gas fireplace. We spent hours designing and installing it. Surrounded with natural slate tiles it has a hand crafted mantle of solid cherry and truly is 'one of a kind'.

We planned the furniture and fireplace arrangement so that the fireplace, wall mounted HDTV, and straight on view of Sequim Bay can all be enjoyed from the comfort of the bed! We also installed 'stealth' stereo speakers in the walls...they are invisible! The balcony of The Loft overlooks the bay and is a wonderful place to just 'be'.

We are in a gated community comprised of five-acre properties. Ours is located on the top of the hill, at the end of a cul-de-sac. It is the last of only three homes situated on the street.

We feel we accomplished our goal of creating a very special place, and are pleased to offer it for your stay in Sequim. Our central location on the north end of the Olympic Peninsula makes this a great place to stay while enjoying the numerous activities available in the area.

We invite you to come stay in The Loft and experience for yourself a truly unique retreat. The Loft is the place to stay when you wish to spend time creating lasting memories with someone special.

*************************************************************************************************

The Loft is about a ten minute drive from Sequim and about 20 minutes drive to Port Angles.

“Port Angeles/Sequim is a gateway to Olympic National Park. Because of the dramatic relief —the peaks rise to over 5,000 feet within a few miles of the coast — the area hosts diverse ecosystems, including alpine environments studded with lakes, ultragreen old-growth forests threaded with whitewater rivers, and bays that harbor orcas and steelhead.

HIGHLIGHTS to enjoy while your're in Sequim include:

-OLYMPIC DISCOVERY TRAIL: miles and miles of paved trail to walk and bike along from Port Angeles to Port Townsend

-AWARD WINNING WINERIES: seven local wineries offering tours and tastings

-LAVENDAR FESTIVAL (July): Sequim is the 'Lavender Capital of North America' with a dozen lavender farms offering tours and their special lavender products. Many farms are open throughout the year. During the festival most farms offer a tasty selection of food and beverages along with some great entertainment on site. In town you'll find a large street fair.

-IRRIGATION FESTIVAL (May): This local festival features a well populated street market, carnival, parade and logging events.

-SATURDAY OPEN AIRE MARKET: Featuring local products and artists every weekend May through October

-SEVEN CEDARS CASINO: Live entertainment, dancing, restaurants and gaming. Just a short five minute drive.

About Wendy Hemmert, Property Manager

We bought our 'retirement' property in Sequim the day after we first saw it in 1999. I had found it listed on the internet and when we arrived to check it out, we just couldn't leave. We decided to spend the night in town and come back the next day to see if it still had the same affect on us. It did. The sunsets of summer here are gorgeous; purple and gold and red...and on that day the sunset was spectacular. So when we came back the next day with a picnic lunch we knew had to own this land.

We ended up moving here full time much sooner than we had originally anticipated but everything happens for a reason, right? It has turned out to be one of the best decisions we've ever made.

Our daughter attends Washington State University and just completed her junior year. You will surely meet Hannah, our friendly yellow lab during your visit.

Wendy Hemmert, Property Manager purchased this studio in 2008

Why Wendy Hemmert, Property Manager chose Olympic Peninsula

Sequim has long been known as a wonderful retirement spot. We chose to buy here because of the small town size (but growing), the fact that it's only a couple hours from Seattle, has a great marina (the John Wayne Marina)to suit our boating needs, and the fact that Sequim gets very little rain compared to the rest of this side of Washington state.

What makes this studio unique

There really is not one spot on this land that doesn't have a view. Whether it mountains, forested hills, ever-changing water views of Sequim Bay and the shipping lanes beyond, or the San Juan Islands. No one ever comes here without exclaiming about our view. Even people who have lived in this area all their lives are amazed.

Perfect relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

First impression was outstanding. Pull up a long hill to the top overlooking Sequim Bay. Once inside greeted with a perfectly decorated living space with all the amenities needed. Unbelievable view from your bed, deck, private hot tub. We didn't want to leave. Perfect for a couples getaway. Entertainment system set up nicely: Directv with hbo/showtime, wifi, Roku with Netflix, surround sound system, invisible speaker in the wall. They have a booklet with all the local restaurants and personal recommendations, along with things to do in the area. We met the owner at checkout time-very friendly. The dog was very nice-we got to meet him once on Saturday and my wife loved her. We plan on coming back to this place as soon as possible to get away from real life.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a great review. We appreciate your summary of the special features in The Loft that serve to make it a real treat for our guests. Tipsy, our lab, enjoyed your pets. She is one of the sweetest labs you'll meet, and she thoroughly enjoys pets from guests. We'd love to have you return, and hope to see you again. Cheri and Kemp

So much better in person.....

  • 5 of 5

This place was ideal. We were in a perfect spot for all there is to see in the area. The scenery is ahh inspiring. The 'loft' has all anyone would need and more.....comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, kitchenette, balcony to overlook the bay, hot tub and wonderful patio area with a gas grill. The owners were very helpful with what to see and do and very gracious overall. A high-end rental, pristine condition. Just make sure you ask right away for the pass code to use the internet, you need one. Overall this was an excellent property and would recommend it to any couple.

Owner's Response: Marit, Thanks so much for taking the time to post your thoughts about your stay in The Loft. It was truly a pleasure to host your stay and to meet you. And thank you also for your suggestion to tell our guests about Sunny Farms (a wonderful, country style grocery). Since you've been here we've written up some general information (which is left on the kitchen table) about "things to know" when staying in The Loft and included the wi-fi password as the first item. Sounds so obvious, but we just hadn't taken the time to write it all down! It gives Kemp and I great pleasure to be able to share our Loft with others, and to find that we have indeed created a place that is very much appreciated by our guests. The Loft is truly an extension ourselves as we have much time, energy, equity and even emotion invested in it. Hearing such rave reviews from our guests validates our own thoughts and feelings about The Loft. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for visiting Sequim for your vacation! Cheri and Kemp Kemp

Really nice, comfy, private studio with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at the Loft. It's tastefully decorated and had everything we wanted for our comfort. The views are stunning from the upper deck, and there is a nice and private outdoor space downstairs with comfy furniture, a gas grill, and a hot tub! It's just 5 minutes or so from Seqium, where there are located some great restaurants. This place is a gem!

We enjoyed meeting our hosts, Cheri and Kemp, who were helpful and friendly, especially since this was our first stay in this region.

Peaceful and quiet, and a great jump-off location to explore the Olympics, we will be back!

Doug and Kristen

Great spot to go explore Olympic

  • 5 of 5

The nest is amazing spot to enjoy Sequim and the surrounding areas - it's easy access to Olympic National, which is what we used it for. The location itself is very well done and top notch. For being attached to someone's house, it feels very secluded. You couldn't ask for a better getaway spot!

Owner's Response: Just a clarification for future guests: The Loft is in a totally separate building and oriented facing toward the water and away from our home. There is one window in the kitchenette which faces toward our home. We're happy to have you mention what a great spot this is to explore the park from. There are a number of great hiking trails, several close by and along the along the Dungeness River ...beautiful!

Serene, private getaway with incredible view

  • 5 of 5

The Loft was everything we could have hoped for. The owners lovingly decorated the space and stocked it with all essentials and then some, including oversized towels just for the hot tub and binoculars for viewing wildlife (we saw an owl!). Kitchen has microwave and mini-fridge and I think there was an electric griddle. The whole place, including the hot tub area, felt very private and separate from the main house. We called the owner to ask about access to laundry on our last evening and he was very kind and accommodating. The Loft is very convenient to Sequim (just a short drive into town) and only about 30 minutes from Port Angeles. The view from the main living space is spectacular, with the TV mounted above the windows, for comfortable viewing of both/either. Highly recommend!!
