About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is our custom new home completed in 2011. It is beach life at its best! There are 2 bedrooms/2 baths, and an open kitchen/dining/living room. The house sleeps 6. The master bedroom has a connected bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and double/twin bunk bed. There is wireless internet if you must be connected.

You are on the beach! The Dungeness lighthouse is right out front. Spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains are on the other side. It is a perfect spot for beach combing, bird watching or curling up with a good book.

We built this house because of our love of the water. Windsurfing and kayaking are two of our favorite activities. It is ideal for both. Bring your gear and have fun! The Dungeness valley is also great for cycling with the Olympic Discovery trail stretching from Sequim Bay to Port Angeles. What ever gear you bring, will be secure in the garage that the house sits on top of. There is a second garage door leading to the beach for easy gear access!

It's your vacation. Do as much or a little as you like. Inside, the house is a quiet, comfortable place to just 'be'. There is a wood stove that increases the cozy factor on cool winter days! Outside is what you make of it. The deck is a great place for bird watching during the day or star gazing at night.

Dungeness Spit is the longest sand spit in the US and a National Wildlife Refuge. It is about a 10 mile round trip hike from the base of the spit to the lighthouse and back. Hiking on a low tide is best. The trail head is less than a 10 minute drive from the house. If you're looking for more ambitious hiking adventures, Olympic National Park beckons. Within an hour you could be at Deer Park or Hurricane Ridge, on trails leading through some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth, really! Hurricane Ridge also has downhill and cross country skiing as well as snow shoeing in the winter.

About Guy Lawrence or Jeanne Neal

I am a 6th grade math and science teacher in Seattle. Being an avid wind surfer, paddler, birder and photographer, my dream was to build a home on the water. I met Jeanne (who loves all outdoor activities) in 2006 and together we built our dream home.

Currently we are busy raising a 17 year old daughter and working full time, but plan on eventually moving to Dungeness full time. We are Olympic Peninsula natives so moving back will be a homecoming of sorts for us.

We hope that everyone enjoys 'Beach Life' as much as we do!

Why Guy Lawrence or Jeanne Neal chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

I spent 5 years after college traveling the world working as a scuba diving instructor. I've always wanted a house on the beach. Diving has given way to windsurfing and kayaking. This place is perfect for both. The Olympic Peninsula is where our roots are. We love visiting and look forward to moving back someday.

What makes this house unique

We like to 'unplug' from the world and take time. We alternate between relaxing with a good book and getting outside paddling, sailing, birding, cycling or hiking the awesome Olympic Peninsula. Nash's Farm store is a must stop for organic veggies while we're there.

Beach Life-Dungeness Beach House, No Bank Waterfront
average rating of 4.9333334 based on 45 reviews

Beautiful home and very accommodating hosts. Excellent, quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Beach Life. The home was clean and modern. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking pots, pans and utensils. And the garage was great for storing our bikes in the dry. We enjoyed several bike rides around Sequim and Dungeness from the house, hikes in the Olympics, trail runs and strolls on the beach. We liked it so much, we requested to stay another night and our host was very accommodating. We hope to return in the future. Thanks!

Already planning our next trip to Beach Life!

  • 5 of 5

You simply can't go wrong with Beach Life. It is a cozy home overlooking the beach/lighthouse and the mountains. It was a perfect size for the 6 of us (my mom, husband, and 3 kids). It was hard to tear ourselves away to explore the rest of the Peninsula. Speaking of the Peninsula, it is a great home base for the wonderful adventures awaiting there. The guide books in the house were super helpful. You can't beat the fantastic views at Hurricane Hill trail. Our favorite though was Camp Handy, which was even closer to the house. Can't wait to come back with kayaks and check out the lighthouse next time!

Perfect home base for the Olympic Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) stayed here for 6 days and found it to be the perfect location for exploring the Olympic Peninsula. The views from the house are breathtaking (both water and mountains). The beach was great for the kids - we saw seals, bald eagles, crabs, jellyfish and numerous shorebirds. We traveled to Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Rainforest, Rialto Beach and Lake Crescent - but it was great to have such a nice house to "come home" to every night. The kitchen is well equipped and the open concept area is perfect for family meals, games and time together. The owners were very responsive and helpful. I would definitely highly recommend this rental to others.

Beautiful beach home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here! Beautifully decorated home with fabulous beach views. Very thoughtfully set up, with a well-equipped kitchen. We had planned to eat out more, but after discovering a mini-Whole Foods, called Sunny Farms Grocery in Sequim, we decided to cook in every night and enjoy our view and sunsets. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this home for a wonderful getaway, and there's so much to do in the area--Olympic National Park, hiking on Dungeness Spit, the lavender time we will bring our bikes and kayaks and stay longer. Perfect place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary!

Owner's Response: A home cooked meal with the views is pretty hard to beat! We also recommend Nash's Farm Store which is only a mile from Beach Life. We have tried to make our house not just a place to leave your stuff while you go somewhere else but a place that is comfortable and inviting on it's own.

Excellent Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Beach Life! A beautiful spot right on the beach where we were able to just relax and spend some quality time together.The kitchen was well-stocked and we cooked every meal together, something we love to do. We walked on the beach, played cribbage, and drank our morning coffee on the patio while we watched the ships cross the Straits. Truly a magical spot. Guy was was easy to work with, quick to respond to emails and returning our deposit. This was truly a magnificent experience from beginning to end.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Beach Life for the overflow of sibling families visiting parents. Looked specifically for a beach property. Loved the location, view of the lighthouse toward ocean and mountains out the other. Quiet, and very comfortable. Immaculate. We had a range of ages from 4 to 55. The craftsmanship and all the accents were refreshing for a newer building. October was the perfect month for wood fires every night and beach walks in the mornings. The teens competed for building the fastest fire. All in all, can't think of any improvements except for a longer stay!

Nearest Golf
3 Miles
The Cedars at Dungeness
Car: necessary

There is easy beach access for kayaking, windsurfing and kite boarding. It is easiest to launch close to high tide. Wind during summer months is predominantly a westerly-side shore that comes up in the afternoon. Mornings would be the best times for paddling if you like calmer conditions. There is boat launch on Cline Spit which about a 5 minute drive away, west.
