An excerpt from a guests 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 600 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, but 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.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: 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.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sequim:
                  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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  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.
