Overview

Olympic Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

3 bdrms(mstr ste), 2 full bth, 1 powder, sleeps 8, great rm + family rm, 2 frpl

This lovely year round home is just a few hours drive and a short ferry ride from Seattle. Located in the sunbelt of the Washington State Peninsula, on the Straits of Juan De Fuca on a long strip of sandy beach, natural beauty abounds. The views from the front and back side of the home are spectacular and include the Olympic Mountain Range, wetlands with many rare species of birds, the Straits of Juan De Fuca, Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse with Victoria B.C. in the distance, Mount Baker, the San Juan Islands and Whidbey Island.

There are many options for great walks and bike rides, as well as kayaking and hiking in the area.

The beach house is a year round pleasure as well. Summers speak for themselves, but imagine winter storms in the great room, waves crashing outside! A crackling fire in the fireplace. Winter walks on a windy day.The home offers several great places to curl up and read a book or play a game, and holidays are especially memorable in this setting!

Great Room Plus: Having both a family room and great room, with pocket doors that can be closed for privacy, allows the home to accommodate large parties. It also offers a feeling of intimacy for smaller parties. The family room and eating space have excellent views, and they connect well with the kitchen to for easy conversation between the spaces. The home was architecturally designed for flexibility, so it feels gracious and intimate at the same time.

Views and Beach: With 200 feet of sandy beach front, the views are amazing, and from almost every room. You can see four light houses and Victoria B.C. in the distance at night. Your day view is 360 degrees. It includes the Olympic Mountain Range as a back drop to the wetlands on one side, and the Straits of Juan De Fuca, the Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse, Mt. Baker, Whidbey Island, and miles of beach on the other. Bald Eagles 'hang out' in number (we've counted up to 17 together at one time) on the beach at low tide. The home includes two large decks. The front deck is a great place to sit and view the mountains and soak up the afternoon sun, and the back deck overlooks the beach.

About Denise Convento

The beach house is a family vacation get away owned by my sister, her family and myself and my family. We spend time there on a regular basis, which we believe makes the house feel more like a home vs a rental. We love the diversity of the Peninsula, the sandy walking beach steps away from the home, the views and the peaceful atmosphere.

Denise Convento purchased this house in 1999

Why Denise Convento chose Olympic Peninsula

It's a wonderful place to slow down and get away from it all!

What makes this house unique

Miles of beautiful beach right in front of the home, amazing 360 degree views, a wonderful floor plan and privacy designed into the property both inside and out.

Great Location for Access to the Olympic Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I flew from the East Coast for a vacation on the Olympic peninsula. Our rental property gave us easy access to Olympic National Park and the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, as well as restaurants in Sequim and Port Angeles. It was a real joy to wake up each morning and watch the seals playing in the water just outside the home. For a real treat, we woke to two bald eagles sitting on the beach at low tide. The house had virtually everything we could have needed. While we probably won't be coming back to the Olympic peninsula again for quite some time (we like to visit national parks around the country), we would recommend this rental to others.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I flew across the country (from PA) for a Pacific NW vacation and we couldn't have dreamed of a better start. Not only was the location on the water magnificent, but the house was stocked with absolutely everything you could imagine. If you are looking to stay anywhere the massive driving loop that is ONP or even just want to take a few days away from it all, this is the place. THANK YOU!

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible getaway. My husband and I have been here a few times, by ourselves and with friends. Perfect place to enjoy the amazing views and relax. With hiking, biking, and plenty of walking to do, you can be as active as you want, or you can relax inside the cont, clean house while you sit by the fire and watch the tides roll in. The home is quite large and has a great layout. If you have kids, they can be next to you or at the other end of the home. Groceries in town are great and Costco is nearby if you want to stock up before getting here. The kitchen is perfect for cooking and the dining room was a great place to enjoy a big crab feast from a fresh catch. We will be coming back for many years to come.

Slice of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't begin to convey how clean, cozy and comfortable this lovely home is!! This is one of the best vacation homes I've rented in my 50+ years!! The sprawling home is designed to afford private spaces for a large group with the separate family and great rooms and the kitchen is a delight for multiple cooks to function at one time! Sharp knives, nice stoneware and glassware..I didn't mind being in the kitchen, with it's window looking out to the beach! The deck and fire pit were made for memories and morning coffee!! The mattresses were comfy, bed linens lush and the bath linen supply was generous. You could literally pack your clothes, grab some groceries and drop in...the owners have provided ample toiletry, paper and kitchen products!! The only thing we didn't find were crab "crackers" for our King Crab we brought from Pike Street Market...we found pliers and improvised!! The home felt homey without being fussy..this is a home, not a rental..lots of games, crayons, CD's and a nice library in the master bedroom, which was really a huge master suite at the far end of the home, and away from the hustle and bustle of the core of the home. We chose the home as a mid point to explore the Olympic Natl Forest, Lake Crescent, Pt Angeles, La Push, and Pt Townsend. If you have teens or kids, make sure to visit the Wild Animal Preserve/Farm nearby...drive through, feeding llamas, donkeys, deer, bison, yaks, peacocks, horses from your car and the Kodiak bears that will wave at you! My 20 23 and 28 year old granddaughters laughed hysterically the entire drive! I will definitely return to this awesome home! Thank you for sharing it with us!

Enjoyed our visit 100%!

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of the best vacation rentals we have ever enjoyed! The house is immaculate, well-maintained, and ultra-comfortable. We enjoyed a 5-day family reunion. There were many fun activities around Sequim. But, everyone loved the house and beach and didn't want to stray far from home. We have some serious gourmet cooks in our family. They were thrilled to find that the knives were sharp and the kitchen well-equipped. We'll be back!

Car: necessary

The Olympic Peninsula is a diverse and beautiful region . Hurricane Ridge, and the Olympic Mountain Range & National Park offer hiking and spectacular vistas. The Dungeness Spit (&wild life refuge) is the largest natural spit in the nation and is a great place to walk. The lighthouse used to be located on the end of the spit, which grows at a rate of about 5 feet per year. Spend the day in Victoria B.C.
