Overview

About the property

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 Diane Sessler

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.

Diane Sessler purchased this house in 1999

Great place for a vacation and Great Communication from the owners

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was the perfect location to check out the north end of the peninsula. The beach house was centrally located to many activities that we spent the week doing. Dungeness Spit, Port Townsend, Port Angles, Discovery Trail, North Side of Olympic National Park.

House had everything we needed from the Kitchen to the Sunrises on the bay. Can't say enough about the owner communication before and after our stay.

Will be looking to stay here on our next visit to the peninsula.

Great beach house

  • 1 of 5

But why have a beach house if you can't get to the beach because if all the seaweed and then the smell. My grandchildren had to say stinky and NOT play on the beach the whole time . Never again

I want to live there!

  • 5 of 5

2 families with 4 young boys stayed for a week and we loved it! The location is beautiful, the house is big, comfortable, and laid out nicely for different groups to hang out in different areas. The deck was great, the house was clean, and we enjoyed the "honey" feel with all the things left in the house for us to use. We had perfect summer weather... now we want to go back in the winter to enjoy the huge family room fireplace!

Extra special waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

Our Sequim beach house vaca was extraordinary! This home is family-ready or perfect for a spacious romantic get away. The location on the shore is incredible... from exploring low tide walks to high tide bird watching from the deck, every moment was memorable. Evenings on the deck or in the luxurious living room both offer huge views of the horizon. Denise was accessible and responsive to all inquiries. Cannot wait to plan a return visit!

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. It's an hour ferry ride from Port Angeles and you can bring your car. It offers many of it's own attractions including the world renowned Buchart Gardens. Other nearby points of interest include the Olympic National Rain Forest, Cresent Lake, the Dungeness River Audubon Center and the Olympic Game Farm. Local festivals and activities include 7 Cedars Casino, 14th Annual Lavender Festival (July 16, 17 and 18, 2010), 115th Annual Sequim Irrigation Festival (May 1-9, 2010), 6 local wineries, Sequim Open Aire Market (Saturdays beginning May 8, 2010) and 3 local golf courses.
