About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

'Lighthouse Manor' is a beautiful, 3-bedroom, two-story home right on the beach of Dungeness Bay (on the Straits of Juan de Fuca). You cannot get closer to the water (unless, of course, you jump in!)

Watch the cruise ships, cargo ships and even submarines cruise through the glorious Straits of Juan de Fuca. Gawk at the spectacular views of Mt. Baker, the lights of Victoria B.C., and the New Dungeness Lighthouse. Bald eagles, otters, deer and seals are regular visitors.

As if these ocean vistas were not enough for your eyes, the opposite side of our home faces the majestic Olympic mountains. You will see some of the most spectacular sunsets over these snow-capped jewels.

Sequim (pronounced 'skwim') offers so many great activities and attractions:

* Dungeness Spit (for those folks up for a great hike) (10 min); * Lavender Farms galore (5 min); * Olympic Game Farm (5 min); * Ferry across the Straits to Victoria B.C. (30 min); * Hurricane Ridge (40 min); * Local kayaking tours (5 min); * Fishing and crabbing (on site); * Several nice golf courses (10 min); * Shopping (15 min); * John Wayne Marina (15 min); * Port Angeles Airport (30 min); * Port Townsend (30 min); * Seattle (1.5 hrs) * Victoria B.C. (1.5 hr)

You won't run out of things to do.

But you may just want to sit on the beach all day and soak in the views and the salt air.

The town of Sequim (15 minute drive from the beach house) has quaint shops as well as grocery stores and many restaurants. For those planning to stay for a while, there is even a Costco and a WalMart just 15 minutes away. Starbucks, QFC, Home Depot, etc. They're all here.

Sequim has the lowest rainfall in the Puget Sound region. Less than 14 inches a year!!! It has been named 'the blue hole' by airplane pilots as it is usually visible from the skies above despite the rest of the area being cloudy. Sequim boasts a large retirement community because of the weather, golf and proximity to so many nearby attractions.

Many people use Sequim as a home base to explore Washington's glorious Olympic Peninsula and Victoria BC, Canada.

Golfing is popular in Sequim as well. Lighthouse Manor makes a great home base for golfers who want to hit the links during the day and relax on the beach at night. During those long winter months while Seattle golf courses are being soaked with rain, Sequim has several golf courses that remain very playable due to the area's low annual rainfall.

'Seven-Cedars Casino' is in Sequim and offers great recreation, music and food.

About Dave

We have traveled all over Washington State to enjoy its beautiful scenery and dramatically varying landscapes. Of all the places we had found and made our special vacation spots, Sequim was the one to which we most often returned. It became our dream to buy waterfront property in Sequim and build a summer home. Lighthouse Manor became the fruition of that dream.

Dave purchased this house in 2003

Why Dave chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

We have always loved the north coast of Washington State. It is beautiful. Sequim was especially appealing as it only gets about 14' of rainfall per year due to its location in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains. We bought our piece of waterfront land in 2001 and built the house soon after.

What makes this house unique

We love the no-bank waterfront. Sitting in the house, you can feel like you are in a houseboat at times. The kids love to play on the beach, of course. The views are the most spectacular! The Olympic Mountains rise from the foothills in the front of the house, and the Straits of Juan de Fuca are on the other side. Few places on planet earth have mountains this high seemingly rising out of the sea. Since there are no public beaches on our street, we enjoy unparalleled quiet and tranquility.

One can sit for hours and watch the cruise ships, cargo ships and even submarines cruise through this amazing body of water. Bald eagles, seals and otters are also frequent guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself, kids and grandchildren were amazed when we walked into the Lighthouse Manor. The expansive water view was enchanting and the home had a cozy appearance with beautiful wall colors appropriate for an elegant beach home. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We often go to Seaside Oregon for entire family summer vacations, but this was much closer and the beach was only feet away.

Beautiful scenery!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at the home. The owners were very gracious to let us stay in their home. The house was very clean and well kept. The view out the back was incredible. I loved opening the windows to hear the ocean waves. There were amazing views from all sides of the home. There were beautiful flowers and candy in the kitchen just for us! It was a nice touch.

There were amenities of all kinds. Plenty of towels, blankets and a fully stocked kitchen. It was all very nice.

There just happened to be a mama sandpiper sitting on 4 eggs in the middle of the driveway! The owners were so sympathetic that they put logs in front of the nest so that nothing would happen to them. That was so wonderful!

The only improvements I would make would be to fix the broken screens since I loved having the windows open. The beds were not as comfortable to my husband and me as some of the other guests had stated. We're used to firm mattresses, and these were very soft. But, to each her own! I would also wish for more landscaping around the front of the house, but maybe they preferred the more rustic, natural setting.

I certainly hate to complain, as I was just so happy the owners let us stay there for a week! It was wonderful. Thank you so much!

Sneaks up on you!

  • 5 of 5

Having never stayed in Sequim, we didn't know what to expect. After a few hours, we knew that the house and location were a winner. The Wilson's home is decorated awesome and very well appointed with everything we needed .

Super relaxing time on the beach, reading in front of the big windows, riding bikes on quiet roads and just hanging out with Family and Friends.

I would highly recommend booking this cabin if you have a chance.

We're coming Back!

Lovely Sequim Escape

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in this lovely beach house. Despite having lots of plans to explore the area, we ended up just settling into the house and enjoying the views. We plan to return again to check out more of the area.

Peaceful getaway - Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be quite comfortable, very clean and peaceful. It is on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood.

This was an annual "girl's weekend" away from the hubbub of the big city. We thoroughly enjoyed the views and the calming sound of the waves (so close to the house!!).

We took a day trip over to Victoria BC, which was quite lovely. And it was nice coming "home" to such a nice place.

Though we are all getting older, I sincerely hope we are all able to get back here again someday.

Namaste'
