Overview

About the property

Serenity Shores is a lovely beachfront home on Diamond Point located between Port Townsend and Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula. Serenity is situated in a wonderful location with incredible views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Protection Island (wildlife sanctuary tours), Mt. Baker, Victoria B.C., Dungeness Spit and the most beautiful sunsets you've ever experienced.

Wake up to deer in the yard, baby seals on the beach, seagulls and magnificent eagles searching for their breakfast. Adventuresome beach walks, sunbathing, water activities and relaxation are just the start of your fun. But you'll want to venture out and explore this beautiful Peninsula area with all it has to offer. Enjoy the breathtaking experience of Hurricane Ridge, the many hiking trails nearby in the Olympics, walk Dungeness Spit/play golf, or shop til you drop in nearby Port Townsend. Music festivals, fairs, wineries, lavender farms, shopping and restaurants (7-Cedars Casino) are right there. (Or hop on the ferry to Victoria for the day.)

Relaxing, sunbathing, beachcombing, boating, sleeping on the enclosed deck under the stars, BBQ on the beach or enjoy a cozy indoor fire (or beach fire) without even leaving Serenity can feel wonderful as well. Children and pets are always welcome of course!

NOTE: Serenity Shores Beachfront Home has won the Best of Sequim Award for six consecutive years including 2017 by the Sequim Chamber of Commerce (USCA). This distinction has qualified Serenity Shores Beachfront Home Vacation Rental for the 2017 Sequim Business Hall of Fame.

Guestbook comments from the owner

FIVE STAR ~ Spent the weekend at Serenity Shores and it was a delightful experience. We had planned on Sunday dinner out, but it was so pleasant where we were at - we just purchased some food and had dinner at the beach house and enjoyed the surroundings. My dog wandered away and we were out looking for him. After a couple of hours a found notice was posted and several people contacted me that they knew where the dog was. A great beach house and a great community. You could not ask for more. Had a wonderful time.

Excellent! Been going to Serenity Shores for 12 years now. Large, roomy, well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views right on the Puget Sound overlooking the San Juan Islands and Protection Island. Cherie the owner always makes us feel special and welcome. Open spacious kitchen, dining room, and living room plan makes everyone able to visit with others while looking out at gorgeous Protection Island. The house is always immaculate which speaks highly of Cherie’s cleaning staff who we have also gotten to know and appreciate!

Highly recommended!

Todd and company,

Seattle, Washington

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The windows all along the back of the home was as close to a panoramic view of the straight as you can get.

We were able to enjoy breakfast while watching the marine life (otters, seals and porpoises) swim right in front of us. The sunsets were absolutely breathtaking. The home was clean and comfortable and we truly enjoyed our time here.

Owner's Response: Lauren ~ I'm so happy that you, your visiting family & pup had such a great time at Serenity Shores. And yes, the view is absolutely amazing and the marine life show & sunsets can't get any better! I hope you had a chance to do some exploring of the surrounding area. Maybe you can have another family reunion next summer (or sooner)! Look forward to seeing you again soon ~ Cheri

Beautiful property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place for our 'girlfriend getaway.' We enjoyed the connection afforded by the open kitchen, dining area, and living room - all with a gorgeous view - so we could stay connected during meal prep. We enjoyed the beach, eagles, and seals. And Cheri, the property owner, was very helpful, pleasant, and accomodating. Overall, an excellent experience!

Owner's Response: Shari ~ I'm so glad that you girls had such a fun getaway getting caught up on life, enjoying the view and ongoing marine-life show. Hopefully you had time to walk on the beach, visit Pt. Townsend and enjoy some of the other adventures in the area. I hope you all can return to Serenity Shores soon and even stay longer! My best to all ~ Cheri

Lovely views at waters edge

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful views of the water, islands and channel into Puget Sound at this beach house. Living room, dining room and kitchen all look out to the waters. We were comfortable for a three night stay, able to cook our own meals with plenty of pots, pans and dishes. We brought games to play so the absence of a DVD player was not missed too much and the internet worked well. Lovely setting but a 25-30 minute drive to Sequim for closest grocery store, restaurants and farther to get to hiking and other activities, such as ferries to Victoria. We saw seals and eagles during beach walks.

Owner's Response: Carolyn ~ I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful time at Serenity Shores and enjoyed the amazing view! I know that it's a 20 minute drive to get to Sequim or Port Townsend, but it's definitely worth it having a private home with a fantastic view and private beach and not having to put up with all the people and traffic in the city. I hope you & your can make it back to Serenity soon!Cheri

Incredible views! Perfect weather!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. It was idyllic to sit outside reading and relaxing , listening to the water lapping at the shore. We saw bald eagles, seals, lots of different birds and beautiful sunsets and sunrises. This is a perfect place to relax and unwind. It is off the beaten track and takes a minimum of half an hour to drive to restaurants, grocery stores, and over an hour to the entrance to the national forest, so it is not ideal to use only as a base for trips to other places.The kitchen was well equipped and there were pleasant areas to eat both indoors and outdoors. It was perfect for our needs. The only reason we gave it 4 stars was that the furniture was quite worn ( although we were aware of this from previous reviews) and the outdoor Adirondack chairs ( inexpensive plastic) were all broken. We called and that day someone came to bring new chairs, but they were more dining-type chairs than lounging . The beds were comfortable but on the soft side, so if you have back issues and need a very firm bed, you might be incomfortable. There is WiFi which worked well but cell service is spotty inside the house. However, there is a land line that available so making calls from the House was no problem. Bottom line, we highly recommend the house for a relaxing vacation where you want to do your own cooking and don’t need fancy furnishings .

Owner's Response: Wendy ~ I'm so glad that you and yours had such a wonderful time at Serenity Shores enjoying the ocean, amazing view and ongoing wildlife show! And yes, the location is great - private, yet close to so many fantastic activities. The furniture is a bit worn, but with all of the folks, kids & pets it does get enormous usage and doesn't stay exactly pristine for long. I do plan on replacing several pieces this winter. Again, I'm so happy you had such a fantastic time at Serenity and hope you make it back soon! Cheri
