About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Dungeness Beach Retreat is a beautiful home on Dungeness Bay along the Strait of Juan de Fuca near Sequim, Washington. The views of the water and mountains are absolutely stunning. This well-equipped home can either be a retreat from the cares of a busy life or a launching point to explore the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. Olympic National Park is a short drive away featuring scenic vistas, great hiking trails, wildlife, waterfalls, lakes, and hot springs.

The small town of Sequim has many charming shops and restaurants. Port Angeles is a short 30 minute drive and has many fine restaurants and attractions. It is also the place to catch the ferry to Victoria, British Columbia.

The Dungeness Beach Retreat features two bedrooms with queen size beds and water views. One is on the main floor and one is upstairs. In the upstairs TV/ sitting area there are two swivel rocker chairs, a standard double size futon couch/bed, and a queen size futon bed for overflow sleeping.

The living room features huge windows and comfortable seating for enjoying the water and beach views and for bird watching. A blazing fire in the woodstove is a perfect way to end the day.

The kitchen is fully equipped (including many spices). The bedroom and bath linens are fully supplied.

The home comes equipped with a washer, dryer, iron, and ironing board.

You can relax on comfortable deck furniture while taking in the views or barbequeing your dinner on the gas grill.

From the deck, it's just a few steps to the beach where you can enjoy beach combing, quiet walks in both directions, and great views of eagles, seals, sea otters, and water fowl.

Bring your kayaks and launch from the beach or bring your bikes and enjoy the country roads.

From the kitchen window and the front of the house, you can enjoy the view across the street over the marshes with a great variety of birds. Beyond that is an unobstructed view of the majestic Olympic Mountains.

About Doug Ahmann

We've lived in Port Angeles for 41 years and feel privileged to call this beautiful area our hone. We love to share this amazing place with our guests.

Doug is a retired accountant and now a handyman, and JoDee is a retired violin teacher, and now a life coach. We both are also enjoying our new role as grandparents. We love the outdoors--hiking, fishing, kayaking, and exploring.

Doug Ahmann purchased this house in 2006

Why Doug Ahmann chose Sequim

This beautiful home became available when our friends who built it had to relocate. We thought it would make an amazing vacation rental, and our guests agree!

What makes this house unique

Staying at this home is absolutely peaceful and refreshing. It is a place where you leave behind stress of a busy lifestyle and rediscover the beauty of the sea and mountains all around you. You discover time to read a great book, put together a puzzle, or go on an adventure on the beach, in the mountains, or anywhere else on the Olympic Peninsula!

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you can't relax and enjoy yourself at this Beachfront Retreat ---- you might as well "STAY HOME . This is a beautiful , well made home in a glorious setting. I am amazed at how well equipped it was including an abundance of quality towels (very rare) and a gourmet equipped kitchen. The owner responded very quickly to several pre-visit questions. My four day "off season" visit was wonderful but not long enough (my fault). This is truly an "as advertised" place.

Beautiful property, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a restful four days at this lovely house. Literally everything you could want! Owner was easy to communicate with and most kind. We had some stormy and snowy weather, and loved sitting by the fire, reading, and looking out at the dramatic scenery. Kids enjoyed watching the Olympic games at night, and we all appreciated access to wifi. Even our Vizsla approved...note that there is not a fenced yard, but we brought a very long rope with a dog clip on it, so he could go off the back deck to take care of business if it was too cold/rainy for a full out walk. Local dairy and organic grocery a sure to check them out for provisions on your way to this lovely vacation spot.

This place was more amazing than expected! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this vacation home. We’ve used Homeaway for many adventures over the years, but this spot takes the cake. The owners really understand hospitality. We have no complaints - only praise! Their home and property are truly a jem. The view of the mountains from our own beach was amazing. Walks along the bay were so inspiring. We were 2 couples, 1 child, and 1 dog. This peaceful place was family friendly, but could even be used as a romantic getaway for one couple. It’s close enough to great towns like quaint downtown Sequim (pronounced skwim), Port Angeles, Port Townsend, but is also close to many hiking trails and beautiful spots like Hurricane Ridge and the Dungeness Lighthouse. Ferry rides to Whidbey Island and/or Seattle are not too far either. Grocery stores, wineries, etc were all a very quick drive. The home had everthing we needed to make awesome meals, including things a crockpot. And it also had wifi and cell service. Wonderful! We loved this place and would recommend it to anyone! We were very sad to say goodbye to 3 Crabs! Hope to return next year! Thank you, than you, thank you!!! What an amazing vaction home!

We loved our 3 day stay at this house. It was beyond our expectations, very clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The views were spectacular, from the Olympic mountains to the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

We will definitely plan another trip there in the near future, the 3 days we stayed weren’t long enough! Loved this beach retreat!!
