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.

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

Perfect little hideaway - we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to "The Loft". We have scoured the Sequim area looking for a place that combines comfort, quiet, convenience, and clean with decent value. This is it. Only about 10 minutes from town in a secure gated community on some 5 forested acres at an elevation that offers killer views of the Bay and Strait. Built above a large garage it shares the same detail, style and quality as the main house next door. The more you stay there the more you appreciate the thought that went into the design: the warm color combinations, the way the deck is positioned for the best private view; the way the hot tub is tucked into a corner screened by a 6' wooden privacy fence in back and the forest on the side; the patio and grill in the same area. (I read a comment on the lack of privacy. True - if you stand on top of the hot tub naked in broad daylight and jump up and down and the owner happens to be in that corner of the yard looking at the fence - maybe...however we've used the tub 10 times or more and felt we had as much privacy as we would in any similar upscale neighborhood. But we're seniors and not into that type of exercise and exhibition.)

The queen bed, with a quality mattress, is positioned so you can look directly out through the sliding deck door and onto the world. The kitchen area is small but with the electric saute pan, gas grill, and a few essential utensils we managed to cook fresh and complete dinners quite easily. For a change, if you like fine dining, try Blondie's Plate or the Alderwood Bistro.

The internet was strong with plenty of capacity for what we needed. We have not used the TV system. About the only disadvantages we noticed were 1) The Loft's design features a vaulted ceiling which creates a wonderfully open effect but as it slopes to the floor you lose a little headroom so one has to be careful not to bump into it, and 2) The closet space is big enough but awkward to get into and use.

The hosts are gracious and non-intrusive but readily available and responsive if needed.

We'll be back!

Loft in paradise

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the view justice! Perfect view, quaint loft with every aminity you would need including hot tub and bathrobes. We hiked nearby trails and rode our bikes thru Lavender gardens. Keep in mind that the refrigerator is a bit small but else wise it was perfect! Thank you for the experience !!!

Private Ocean View Oasis

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Loft. It is very well appointed, feels ultra comfortable and luxurious, and provides a perfect private getaway. We loved the deck and views, and spent each evening enjoying the views of the distant Strait of Juan de Fuca watching the ships go by. We enjoyed the deck heater for the evening star gazing. Nice touches, like soft robes and great glassware made the space feel home-like and comfortable. The local area is very fun and funky. Sequim has a variety of great places, from the restaurant "Nourish" to gift shops downtown - we enjoyed it all. Port Townsend was a great day trip and equally fun and enjoyable. We could definitely see coming back and doing it all over again. Thanks so much for a great place!

Just the place you want to be...

Amazing views. Welcoming more than you can imagine. Clean, comfy, cool! The hot tub was appreciated, and the ease of the stay was perfect. A wonderful "hub" for your trip to ONP!!

Nothing beat overlooking the bay while seeing fireworks in all angles. What a treat for us!

Quiet getaway with magical view. Great.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located near Sequim, WA with an elevate view of Discovery Bay and the Strait of Juan De Fuca, providing frequent rainbows in the "rain shadow". The Loft is a perfect couple retreat, with privacy, comfort, and all of the necessities. The Juan De Fuca coast, with it's many parks and Olympic NP are near. I truly cannot imagine a more beautiful place.
