Dungeness Spit National Wildlife Refuge and the surrounding landscapes are PARADISE FOR BIRD WATCHERS. The crest of the Dungeness Spit divides a protected inner harbor (Dungeness Bay) from the open waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. After crossing the strait from Canada, birds seek the spit for shelter and forage. Alcids, shore birds, puffins, and waterfowl congregate along the spit while song birds and raptors settle into the woods of the refuge and areas above. More than 250 bird species have been recorded on the refuge, and more than 90 species have bred there. No other vacation rental gets you this close to the Dungeness Spit!

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Sequim, Washington
We had to get out and adventure and breathe after the holidays. Somebody else commented this place feels like you're staying in a national park, They are so right! Loved everything about it. Sequim folks are so friendly. We will definitely be back here to stay again. Thank you.
Merry Christmas! Lovely house and location. We took a little Christmas snowshoe hike at Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. Sunny weather, not too cold, and lots of "Grey Jays" birds that eat from your hand - be sure to take some sunflower seeds. We will be back this summer as we want to see more of the coast areas and drive to the top of Blue Mountain. -Portland, OR
What a perfect place for our family to celebrate Thanksgiving. It's so quiet and beautiful. Had a nice day shopping in town, even came across a Christmas craft bazaar. Kitchen is compact, but had everything we needed. The big bed was perfect for cuddling with the little kids in the morning. And they loved the Battleship game! We especially enjoyed the huge deck with the fabulous view. We'll be back!
Such a wonderful home - we loved the view. Saw deer in the morning and seals in the water in the afternoon. Thank you so much. We will be back!!
Liked the house, the quiet, and the DEER!!! Thank you. -Los Angeles, CA and Maryland
Wonderful view. Loved seeing the deer. Was sad we didn't see and raccoons! Enjoyed the spit and the beach.
Enjoyed watching the ships go by. Marinetraffic online! Very quiet and relaxing! -Oregon
My family and I loved staying here. Great location and fun for all of us! We loved the board game cabinet. Thank you very much. -Vancouver, WA
Awesome week and 10,000 Waves! Highlights were the Spit, Lake Crescent, and Port Townsend. What a fantastic location! Had a great time.
Every time I come I am amazed how nice it is. Thank you for sharing this place. Kitchen was well equipped and beds were comfy. Nights are quiet with the sounds of waves. Trail to spit is a great added bonus. Saw eagles, deer, and many ships. Also had a great BBQ on the deck. I am already looking forward to our next visit.
Wonderful location, beautiful views and secluded. We had everything we needed and it was a great experience.
We are a large group and we were incredibly comfortable here. There is a special magic at this spot, and we were invigorated and really relaxed. Thank you for allowing us to share this special place.
Wonderful! Fantastic! I absolutely loved the view of the spit! I loved it a lot here. And the view of Victoria.
Wonderful, peaceful place! Charming! Amazing view! Absolutely gorgeous beach! Thanks for an awesome vacation! FUN!
3rd visit to 10,000 waves and it never disappoints. Love the deer, eagles, and beautiful scenery. Thanks!
Cannot think of a better way to spend Mother's Day with my family. I look forward to coming here again and again. Thank you for sharing this great home.
This a nice house in an awesome location! Feels like a national park here in the woods with crashing beach waves below. Weather was summer-ish and sunny all week. Our friends in Seattle said it rained there continuous. Love the Sequim blue hole!
We had the best spring break with the kids. We always had something to do and kept busy. Beautiful area and small town. Thanks for opening this lovely house to us!
Great family place. Loved listening to the waves at night. Happy Easter!
We had a great girls weekend, an extended 3 night stay over President's Day weekend. This is our third time coming back here. We enjoyed the company, talk, wine, wine, and wine. We also toured the local wineries and shopped! We highly recommend 10,000 Waves.
Merry Christmas and Happy Year! Spending time with our four children that live in the four corners of the US. Every year we meet at a destination and enjoy the holidays and each other and adventuring the area. We had mild weather yesterday so Father and the kids hiked to the lighthouse and had a great tour - even got to see the light room at the top. We really enjoyed our stay and do not want to leave. We decide to come back again next year. Thank you for letting us use this awesome home!
Happy Turkey Day! We had warm weather today and visited the Dungeness Spit (Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge). We really enjoyed talking with the volunteer rangers they were very knowledgable. The Dungeness Spit is actually made by ocean wave action that erodes the SW shoreline and carries and deposits the erroded sand to form the Dungeness Spit. They say the Spit, which is over 4 miles long, grows about 6 inches per year. What an amazing balance of nature!
Great view!!! Lovely town - even a Costco! Lots of places to explore; a great area to use as a "base camp" also! Thanks for sharing your lovely home. No humidity! -Cincinnati, Ohio
This is our new secret place. We almost didn't go to the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, and that would have been a huge mistake. We are definitely coming back same time next year. Wish we had lavender back home. We've been here a week and we don't want to leave - strange feeling hard to describe how attached we are. Thank you and see you next year. -Bozeman, MT
This was the best vacation find ever. Truly a beautiful site. We loved listening to the waves. Very relaxing and fun. We will be back with friends and family.
Hurricane Ridge is a must see. The ocean beaches were magnificent. We just cannot believe the beauty of the pacific northwest. Our kids will forever remember this vacation they had so much fun here. Very relaxing. Thank you for allowing us to stay here! -New Hampshire
We had an amazing time, we hope we can come back. I love the sounds of the waves in the morning. When the sun sets it's beautiful. The leaves on the trees are so pretty. Thank you, we loved this place.
This was the best vacation find ever. Truly a beautiful place. Very relaxing and fun. Plan on returning. -Crook County, Oregon
Incredible view! Loved listening to the foghorns. We stayed 6 nights and explored the Sequim, Port Angeles, and Port Townsend area. The most incredibly warm and friendly people - very helpful and kind. We had a wonderful time. -Boise, Idaho
We had a great stay! This is a great place with an awesome view. Thank you. -Iowa
Beautiful view; peaceful! Very nice accommodations. We will be back with friends and family. -Boise, Idaho
Had a great time - thanks for letting us stay.
What a wonderful place to stay at. Had a great time. Please may I come again.
Thanks you so much for letting us come from Wisconsin to your lovely vacation home in Sequim for a vacation. The home is so well equipped and homely. The view reminds me of the years growing up in Sturgeon Bay.
After traveling many miles from Wisconsin (3 days), we saw many beautiful antique shops and quilt stores. The scenery was awesome. The wildlife was great. We visited Port Angeles, Forks, Makah Museum, Port Townsend, and Hurricane Ridge. We attended the Irrigation Festival in Sequim. The stop at 7 Cedars Casino was a hoot. Tomorrow we will leave and go back to Wisconsin. Thanks you for letting us stay.
This place is awesome. This place was really fun I had a great time at the beach!!
Well appointed and equipped. This location is like renting a national park. Warmer weather than expected and lots of sunny "blue hole" action all week. We may look into retiring in this area. Thanks for letting us stay in your seaside cabin. -Boston
We enjoyed this place so much! We didn't want to leave. Thank you for letting us use your beautiful cabin.
Such beautiful surroundings. Thank you for sharing it with us. The wild deer, not fearful of anyone, were delightful to see and observe. Happy New Year to you.
Happy New Year! What a view! My husband and I will be back in the summer. Thanks!
Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful time here with all our family. The house is great and the location can't be beat! We had a great time watching ship traffic (recommend iPhone app Shipfinder HD). Best views, lots of wave sounds, kitchen had everything we needed to cook our Christmas turkey. We love 10,000 Waves. We'll be back again! Thanks for letting us use this place.
We love this place. We will be back!
A good time was had by all!
Lovely view and enough room for us all. Wonderful sounds of waves too. And our daughter really enjoyed it.
Lovely stay. The house was really nice and perfect weather. Dramatic views of Dungeness Spit and was good to be able to walk down from the house to shorefront. -London
Thank you for sharing your home. We had a very fun and relaxing time. Hearing the waves hit the shore at night is a very sweet lullabye. Seeing beautiful deer roam around the yard and the birds in the water and Spit was wonderful. We hope to return and leave the city chaos behind.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful place.... Simply wonderful....
We had a wonderful time here. First time for almost 10 years, and it was as perfect as we remembered it. We loved introducing our kids to the delights of this house, the beach, and all that Sequim and the Olympic Peninsula have to offer. National Park Rangers very helpful and Bella Italia in Port Angeles the best Italian food.
We really enjoyed our stay here!! Thank you.
We were determined to hike to the lighthouse. Now two hours before departure we are still so. Guess we will have to come back another time.
We had a great girls' weekend! View is beautiful and it was great to sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves. -Spokane, WA
Thank you so much for the use of your beach house. We had a wonderful time. We especially liked the hike to the lighthouse and back. -Michigan
Family reunion of relatives of the Bugge family which settled in the Sequim area in the 1800s. We enjoyed the beautiful view, the very comfortable accommodations, and the fellowship of family. Thank you very much.
We had a wonderful time here and we went to Port Angeles and caught crab fish on the dock and learned how to throw the fishing rod.
This was a perfect, peaceful place to have a get-away weekend - thank you so much!! -Seattle, WA
We had a fantastic time here with the kids! Super house, super beach, super deer that walked right up to me. Pleasant animals and plants. Good energy here. Just amazing plants, animals, and water. Have fun! -Bellingham, WA
My 13 year old and 10 year old walked to the Dungeness Lighthouse. It's a long 11 mile walk there and back. They left at 12:30 pm and came home at 8:45 pm! Beautiful serene place. -Oregon
Had an amazing time in the beautiful home with a great ocean view! Came to celebrate our mom's and grandma's birthdays. Never seen her smile so big! The walk out on the Dungeness Spit was long but worth it. A great few days out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
A wonderful weekend getaway for our family! We LOVED the view from the living room windows. It invites you to just sit and enjoy God's creation!
What a memorial time and place on this Memorial Day weekend! Thank you for sharing this peaceful cabin for others so enjoy! We will be back!
We had a lovely time in this house and in Sequim and surrounding areas! The beach is wonderful and certainly worth a hike down the trail. The wild life as well was breathtaking - the herds of deer we saw grazing, the bald eagles that flew high past the window whilst we were supping - AWESOME! Thank you for letting us use this cabin.
Six in our family reunion that brought us together from upstate New York, Utah, and Seattle. We enjoyed the house, the view, and the sound of the 10,000 waves! We walked to the lighthouse enjoying the giant logs colored rocks and ocean. A wonderful get away and coming together. We experienced the power and majesty of the ocean thinking about 30 ft waves that inundated Japan earlier this week.
Very relaxing getaway. The views were amazing and Sequim was great. We walked the Dungeness Spit and visited Victoria, BC. It was a beautiful three day weekend. Thanks for letting us use this house. Everything was absolutely wonderful.
What a view!! We enjoyed our lovely base camp for trips to Victoria and Hurricane Ridge. Had a nice hike from Obstruction Point on the only clear day we had in a week. We also enjoyed walking around the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend. Great meals at Alderwood Bistro in Sequim. We loved sleeping with the door open listening to the waves. Thank you for a great end to our vacation. -Williamsburg, VA
My parents from Hawaii enjoyed the view and walks on the beach. We had an awesome time skateboarding in Forks and Port Angeles.
Great golf, great view, great place to stay!!! -Seattle
The five of us never tired of the view from the front windows. Loved the roominess of the house. Most of us loved the cool weather after the high 90s where we live. Ate a lot of fresh sea food. -Ohio, Kentucky
Great views of Canada! The forest and the water were amazing. Many thanks! -Portland
Beautiful place and location. If you like the hike to the lighthouse, try walking the beach at the beginning of 3 Crabs Road too. Hoh Rain Forest a must and on the way, you can see the crazy Twilight tourista in Forks. If you need food for eating in, go to Sunny Farms Market off Hwy 101. By the way, great bed in the master bed room. We loved the deck and did yoga out there together. This is a wonderful place to retreat! Saw a bald eagle yesterday on our walk to Olympic Lavender Farm, and black tailed deer in the driveway to welcome us home. Very relaxing here. And i agree the beds are wonderful comfy beds! The pacific NW never disappoints. We try a new location every year. -San Jose, CA
Just love this place. There were six adults and one baby and we had so much room to walk around. We put a puzzle together, played games, whale watched, walked the beach, and at night all watched the cruise ships go by. We will be back but next time stay longer! Beds were comfy, kitchen was well stocked, and deck was awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! -Richland, WA
Wonderful times at your wonderful place! Loved the amazing views and walks along the beach. Four boys loved the boots and opportunity to get dirty digging for treasure and collecting crabs, clams, etc on the tidelands! Very comfy beds. Thanks for a great time! -Oxford, MS
We had a fun time staying here. Going down to the beach for a family time was great. Thank you!
We had a wonderful guys weekend here and hope to return again soon! Thanks.
Thank you so much. We are up here to play golf with the Port Angeles longshore group. Thanks Local 8 Portland.
Thank you for providing such a great place to vacation! We hope to come back again. The waves were such a pleasant addition to listen to all day!!
This has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. The crashing waves are a million dollar sound. We enjoyed the views and watching ships pass. We cooked great meals prime rib on the grill. This is the most relaxing place ever. This is going to to be our new secret spot. We look forward to returning to this peaceful place.
This is a very special spot. Love listening to the seagulls and waves. We felt at home here. The house is well equipped. Most of all we liked being so close to fantastic hiking at Olympic National Park. We hiked in snow shoes at Mount Rainier and should have known better that Hurricane Ridge would require snow shoes but we did it anyway just using out boots even though we sometimes were in snow up to our knees. Same thing yesterday at the top of the Lake Angeles hike. What a gorgeous place even when in snow up to our knees. Most of Lake Angeles was not covered with snow and we took great photographs of the wild flower along the trail especially the white trillium. Walking on the Olympic Peninsula watching and listening to the waves while listening to Puccini's Operas on the iPod was a great experience. We look forward to returning to this relaxing house. -Cape Coral, FL
We truly enjoyed our stay here the peacefulness of this home is amazing. We hiked all 10 miles out and back to the light house.... what a long journey that is. We saw tons of birds, seals, and wildlife, it was worth the pain. We enjoyed going to the beach front and looking for clams. We went to the Olympic Game Farm and had a bear perform for us it was great. The best part was sitting on the deck and enjoying the sound of the waves and birds and watching the sunset. What an amazing getaway!! Thank you for giving the beautiful space for everyone to enjoy.
We love this place! Watching ships go by was wonderful. Big wind and waves last night it was a great show. We hope to come back again this spot is heavenly. -Caldwell, ID
We just wanted to say thank you for letting us use your cabin snuggled in the woods. We just don't want to leave it is so peaceful here with the wildlife and shorefront scenery. We love 10,000 Waves.
Happy New Year! We had a visit by the neighborhood deer and local bald eagles. Splendid views here. We enjoyed our time here relaxing and didn't leave except for shopping. This cozy cabin is a retreat for the soul. Thanks for letting us use it.
Peace and joy to those who stay here. This place is blissful and soothing. It doesn't get better than this - views, crashing waves (thunderous at sunset!), wildlife, and seclusion. -Boulder, CO
Had a nice time with multiple generations of family here. It was great to have a high chair and crib awaiting at our destination! We went on a beautiful, easy hike to Olympic Hot Springs in the Elwha river valley, and enjoyed tasty seafood at 3 Crabs Restaurant. Best wishes for a wonderful stay for all. Happy Thanksgiving!
Our second year here at 10,000 Waves. We know we will make it a tradition for our families. Thank you again!
The first day we went on a hike. I saw a dead seal and we made a fort out of beach wood. I also found a turtle made out of drift wood. When it was high tide we left from the ocean. Back here we watched some TV and played some games. Today we are going back home.
Happy Halloween! Not many trick-or-treaters out here. Quite secluded we enjoyed our week here and will come back again and again. 10,000 Waves is our secret spot for rejuvenating getaways. Thanks for making your house available to us! -Heppner, OR
Beautiful Sequim, beautiful weather, beautiful rain forest. Wonderful! -Walla Walla, WA; Kennewick, WA
We had a great time. Great beach and perfect skipping rocks everywhere!
We had a great stay here at 10,000 Waves! We loved going out to the Spit and seeing the local sights! We hope to come back and see more of the Olympic Peninsula. The house was very comfortable. -New York, NY
We had a great time! Spent our days at Crescent Beach and the Dungeness Spit. A perfect place for kids. Thank you! -Seattle, WA
We had a great time - beach, Olympic National Park, Hurricane Ridge, crab/oyster feast. Thank you! -Albany, OR
A mountain hike with panoramic views of volcanoes and jagged peaks, followed by wine tasting at the Olympic Winery was the start of an unforgettable trip. Throw in a jaunt to San Juan Island stopping to see Orca Whales along the way and watching the sunset on the Dungeness Spit (which apparently is a federal offense), and you get pure perfection. Thanks for the perfect gathering place. -Seattle, WA; Newport, RI; New York, NY; Chicago, IL
Great location. Quiet! Private! We enjoyed our August vacation. We hiked out to the lighthouse - it took us 2 hours and 10 minutes to go out; we ate lunch and toured the lighthouse; then just under 3 hours to walk back. We stopped to watch some harbor seals playing in the water. Beautiful sunsets, picking raspberries and blueberries, and a scenic drive around the area completed our stay. We enjoyed staying at 10,000 Waves. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, great views, and clean facility. A very good visit and loved listening to the 10,000 waves during the night! -Western CO
We are a family of 7 who needed a place to spread out and enjoy privacy both indoors and outdoors. 10,000 Waves gave us that and the domestic details to stay put if we chose. We really made use of everything and found it fun to be at home in a different home. Thank you to all of those involved on the business end and on the guest end who provide, use, replace, and respect a complete home so that others such as ourselves have a choice like this to take advantage of. God's Blessings! -Fond du Lac, WI
This place is a fantastic find. Yesterday was warm, clear and calm. After checking at Hurricane Ridge and then watching bald eagles in the wildlife refuge, we had steamed clams and mussels and wood planked salmon BBQd on the deck. Holidays don't get better than this. We'd recommend this place to everyone. It is very thoughtfully appointed, right down to the well stocked kitchen and deer wandering through the property. Thanks. -Sydney, Australia
What a glorious view! Shiny sky scrapers across the Strait by day and beautiful lights of Victoria, BC by night. Cruise ships, cargo ships and large ferries passing by - lit and lovely at night too. Toss in a resident raccoon or two, and eagle being chased by two crows in hot pursuit as we stood on the deck.... Add a quaint village and rambling deer along with good mattresses and you have our 4 days at 10,000 Waves! We are a large family of 8 girls and 2 boys from Toppenish, WA. This year marks our 24th year of going away each spring together along with one sister-in-law and one adapted sister (like we needed another girl!). God's blessings on this Cabin on the Strait.
We all loved the place! The clamming here is unbelievable!! We found manila, butter, and cockle clams, mussels and even a few oysters. We had a feast. What a perfect place for families to get together. Thank you!
Had a wonderful visit with family. Enjoyed 10,000 Waves. Visited the Spit, the mountains, Hurricane Ridge. Enjoyed local dining at the Highway 101 Diner, visiting Port Angeles, etc. -Redmond, WA
We came from Wisconsin for our first trip to Washington. We found the view, the kid friendly atmosphere, and the washer and dryer a big plus. With four children under 5 years old we didn't feel the least bit crowded and felt like home. We would recommend it to all our friends and family. -Wisconsin
We are a group of pharmacy students who came from Oregon for a spring break. We had such a good time in this beautiful place. The view is spectacular, it's so peaceful, and full of light and nature. Thank you for everything!
What a beautiful place you have by the ocean it was such a nice time to meet my daughters and granddaughters from Colorado and bring my sister, granddaughter and great grand baby together for such a wonderful reunion again. It was a very special time for me to be with my daughters and their daughters and great grand baby. Thank you again for such a special four days. It felt like a piece of heaven. - Vancouver BC, Canada
This is one of the nicest places. It is so beautiful. I am from North Vancouver. I hope to come back here with my family. I'd love to just stay here. Beautiful place!
What a perfect place to meet my new granddaughter, see my aunti and mother, beautiful daughter, to spend quality time with my sister and niece. All of this and the beautiful scenery who could ask for more? God granted me this special time with my family together with the sound of waves crashing, birds singing, and rain hitting the windows. Is this not the best sounds in the world? The trees, the open sea and my wonderful family. I could not have been blessed more in my life! This time has been the best ever! Thanks to the wonderful view and perfect place! Beautiful! A piece of heaven!!! - Pueblo, CO
We could have not picked a better place to spend a romantic weekend. The house was terrific, the view beautiful, and the fire place a plus! Your bed was very comfy! Thank you so very much!
What a wonderful little spot. Cozy and warm; this was the perfect place to be with three generations of family. We got away from distractions and watched deer and eagles fly. - Pennsylvania and Tacoma.
Happy New Year at 10,000 Waves!
We had a great time with family and friends to celebrate the new year and my birthday. From Minnesota, Tacoma, Portland, and Port Angeles we all came here!
The view was lovely, the house was warm, and the beds were dreamy!
We hope all who come this year have laughter, love, and good times. We tried to start the year with an abundance of each!
We are two families friends for 25 years - each of us with a developmentally disabled young person. Your house was wonderfully convenient and cozy. We enjoyed every minute. The views are wonderful, the beds comfy and the whole environment gave us a safe haven whenever we returned from being astounded by the breathtaking scenery. Thank you for a memorable 70th birthday celebration. -Littleton, CO.
We had many bizarre dreams here. It was a comfy abode. But where is the recycle? Julie was extra comfy.
Man-sized cabin. We are a group of lumberjacks. We wanted to take our vacation away and work on teaching younger lumberjacks about their heritage.
Thanks for opening your home to join family and friends for a peaceful visit. -MN & WA.
Many thanks for the wonderful stay. Your home is so inviting, warm, and child friendly. We all had a great time. We saw a deer, a sea lion, an eagle, and constant company from the native squirrels. We will be back again. Redmond, WA & Washington DC.
We loved your home. Perfect location. We saw alot of deer. Enough toys for the kids. They liked the trail very much. We had a wonderful stay. Thanks alot.
Thanks for sharing your home. We had a great time exploring the Spit and watching the sunsets. Your home is very child friendly. We love the location and all the amenities. -Rockaway, NY.
Great spot - loved the opportunity to use the cabin / deck space and easy trail down to the wonderful shore. Also a great location for outings - we went to Olympic National Forest (Hurrican Ridge - beautiful views of mountains, trees, water) and spent some time in Sequim, Port Angeles, and stops along the way.
The kids loved it. The cabin is very family friendly (toys, games, videos, trail) and the nearby outings were fun (driving tour wildlife park, shoreline, sand sculptures displayed in Port Angeles). Also enjoyed frequent deer sightings and a raccoon visit.
We enjoyed our stay at our "Cabin in the woods." Beautiful views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Dungeness Spit and Dungeness Harbor. During our stay we visited Victoria BC, Hurricane Ridge on a foggy day, Seattle, Forks & Pacific Coast in the Olympic National Park. We will be taking home many wonderful memories. Many thanks to our son and daughter who were with us. They gave us this trip for our 50th anniversary.
Loved your home. Very comfortable and the location was perfect. Especially enjoyed the young family of quail living along the driveway.
Great little cabin. Nice birds, great for our kids, great stove, nice trees. Seattle, WA.
Thank you for opening your home. We truely had a wonderful stay.
What a perfect spot! We really enjoyed our too short stay and a chance to play with our friend before she starts her latest adventure as a naturalist for Cruise West out of Seattle. The private salt marsh / mud flat / beach was a great birding spot - bald eagles, yellow legs, barrow's golden eye, buffalo heads, belted kingfisher, caspian turn, common loon. An orange-crowned warbler was trilling around the cabin all day. only one day to explore beyond the sanctuary of 10,000 Waves was not enough so we hope to return.
We walked out to the lighthouse yesterday. At a brisk pace it took us 1.5 hours out and about 1.75 hours back. We do have some sore muscles today, but we are so glad we made the trip. We highly recommend it. The sound of the waves crashing is mesmerizing and makes the time go by more quickly. We have enjoyed our stay.
What a great weekend! It rained a little Saturday morning then sunny the rest of the day. We walked out to the lighthouse and had a tour up to the top of the light - magnificent view! We had to soak our feet when we got back. We grilled some dead cow and had a splendid dinner for the two of us. We saw several eagles and blue herons. We hate to leave this place. Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful cabin.
Happy New Year!! You have to visit Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. Drive to Port Angeles and follow the brown national park signs. They have downhill skiing and rent show shoes for a beautiful days trek. Take along sunflower seeds to feed the birds that will sit on your hand if you remain still. We are coming back this summer to do the same ridgeline hike.
The high speed wireless was a pleasant surprise. I was able to sit at the picnic table and catch up on my surfing and email while enjoying the deck and wonderful waves and birds and passing ships. The Dungeness Spit park was full of visitors and we could occasionally hear the kids playing down there until the tide came in and the waves got too loud. The week went by too fast and we wish we could stay longer. Thank you.
We had a great time. Wonderful to see all the toys, especially for 2 sets of 3-year-old twins. Thank you for making your cabin available to us.
It would be impossible to dream this beauty. 8:30 pm August 29, 2006. The light is dying and the night takes us into the ocean like an enormous mother boat. The kids are ready to go to bed after their bath. They smell like soap and future.
Our feet are tired. We do the dishes. We laugh. We have eaten too much today and we still have brownies and vanilla ice cream.
The light is dying. It would be impossible to dream this beauty, in this moment. Now. We want to believe that the world breathes at peace. The world breathes at peace over Ten Thousand Waves. Santa Monica, CA.
The house was great! We enjoyed watching the deer! The wildlife park was also a good time. We also enjoyed walking along the Dungeness Spit. We wanted to tell you to check out Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park it had an awesome view. If you stand with bread in your hand the birds will sit on your hand and eat. Spokane, WA.
Loved the spit, had a great time canoeing! Views were great. We loved 10,000 Waves! Lots of deer! We suggest Hurricane Ridge. We also went to the Hoh Rain Forest. Hope your stay is as good as ours!!!
Four adults - two kids had a great time at the 10,000 Waves Cabin in the woods, above the ocean, bathed in the sun, cooled by the sea breezes. Squirrels chased around the trees, deer grazed the meadows, and an eagle glided along the shoreline. Thanks for a home away from home to explore the Olympic Park and pick/eat strawberries and raspberries until we could eat no more. Thanks for toys, books, full kitchen, etc., etc., etc.
We experienced all kinds of weather. There are two sets of twin fawns in the neighborhood. One set played chase in the woods to wish us goodbye tonight. We recommend skipping the satellite TV and going for the sunset entertainment center. We live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and found this a welcome quiet retreat. A former teaching friend from Tifton, Georgia was here for part of our visit. She loved the area as well.
Perfect weather there wasn't a cloud in the sky all week. We rented kayaks and paddled out to the Dungeness Lighthouse. We dug clams during low tides, stacked rocks, and build forts from driftwood on the Spit. 10,000 Waves is wonderful. This is going to be our secret summer vacation spot. We will be back again. Oh yeah, thanks for the mud boots - they are needed down on the tidelands.
We had a great stay here. We, too, wish we could wake up here everyday. Loved the beach and Spit. Hope to come back here again soon. Peoria, AZ
This was a great experience. The ocean is so beautiful and the trees so tall. I love it here, it brought some great family memories. The Spit beach is really cool to make rock sculptures by stacking rocks on top of each other. Andy you can build huts out of random pieces of drift wood. I wish I could wake up to this every day. -Seattle and Salt Lake City
We ladies are celebrating the retirement of our friend. What a wonderful place this is. Three of us brought our air mattresses and sleeping bags and slept on the deck - stars, waves, shooting stars. What a fun time. I'm so glad I found this vacation home online. I've always loved Sequim. We enjoyed our walks and enjoyed the neighborhood deer families! The house is very comfortable for us gals! The master bed is heaven to sleep on. Everything has been so cozy. I thank you so much.
This place was wonderful- a great place to get away from the hectic busy life of Seattle. The house was cute and clean - great view of sunset and the spit. Too bad we only stayed for such a short time. The weather only permitted us to hike hurricane ridge, crab digging, Marymere Falls, and hanging out with the family in this cozy house. Saw deer and other cute little creatures. The house is nicely furnished. Thanks for a great stay, hope everyone else to come and enjoy. -Jenison, MI
What a Memorial Day treat - bald eagles perched in the Douglas Fir trees out front! God Bless America. The first thing we noticed when we stepped out of our car was the fresh sea air and the thunderous crashing waves. This seaside place is magical! We hope to come back again next fall, after school starts. -Boise, ID
This was a great place to spend Mother's Day with our families - we met our good friends from Spokane and had a marvelous time. We did some shopping and visited Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park - a must do. We cooked all our meals here and everything tasted better than usual. Thanks for the well stocked kitchen it had everything we needed! I feel rejuvenated - thanks for letting us use your wonderful, cozy cabin! We plan on this being our first annual family get together at 10,000 Waves. -Marysville and Spokane, WA
Hi! We are from Door County, WI, and this is our second stay at 10,000 Waves. My grandchildren love playing on the beach and making forts with driftwood. The town of Sequim has really changed since we first came here. All the new stores. They could really use some good antique malls though! Well guess that's about all for now. Hope you all enjoy the cabin like we do. -Sturgeon Bay, WI
This place rules! I hope I can come back again. -Portland,OR
Happy New Year from Sequim!! We spent the first day of this year walking and playing on the Dungeness Spit. Lots of visitors there today. We are definitely coming back to 10,000 Waves again. We love Sequim and may have to eventually retire here. -Bozeman, MT
Seasons Greetings, and all that. We relaxed and did next to nothing other than walk the Spit and enjoy warm fires in the woodstove at night. Ate lots of Christmas prime rib perfectly seasoned and grilled on the Weber Genesis. One night we saw the famous Mrs. Raccoon and her sons Timmy and Jimmy (I know their names since their pictures are in the 10,000 Waves User's Manual). We returned home from dinner at Khu Larb Thai restaurant and they stared at us for quite awhile before they ran into the woods. We also enjoyed lots of bald eagles perched on the trees out front, especially in the mornings - seems like we took thousands of pictures of the eagles. We saw lots of seals and/or sea lions on the outer side of the Spit during our daily hikes. Several people we met on the Spit said there is also a huge elephant seal living on the Spit beach out near the Dungeness Lighthouse, but we did not make the hike out that far (5 miles one-way!). It hurts to leave here and have to return home. Thanks for sharing this cozy house and unique location with us.
Four days of beautiful weather over the Thanksgiving holiday. We met our friends from Vasteras, Sweden here and enjoyed their company and cheer. Everyone enjoyed the beach walk on Dungeness Spit, the soaring bald eagle shows, and the great wave sounds from the deck. We especially appreciated the kitchen that had everything we needed to prepare the turkey and all the peripherals. Best tasting turkey ever, outstanding! I must say food just tastes better here. This is one of those unique, neat places that you get lucky and find every so often. We have already made reservations to return this spring. -Vasteras, Sweden, and Kennewick, WA
We wanted to get out and unwind before the busy holiday season sets in. And this was the perfect place to get away from it all. The kitchen was so well equipped beyond our expectations. My husband enjoyed watching the ships. Weather was so nice we dined out on the deck picnic table! We will return here again. -Lake Oswego, OR
Hi, my folks wanted to go to 3 Crabs restaurant for their 49th anniversary and invited us along. It was raining in Black Diamond and pouring down in Tacoma, but as we crossed the Narrows Bridge, the skies began to clear. Onward and upward across Hood Canal Bridge with a side stop at Lower Oak Bay campground (our favorite haunt) to cool our axels. Past Gardiner with a look at Troll Haven and into Sequim. An early dinner at the 3 Crabs restaurant with bits of crab shell flying. After dinner, we drove around a bit, thinking to find an overnight stay (we never plan anything) and found a B&B that advertised cabins. One credit card swipe later we found ourselves driving down Anderson and "Here we are!!" This has been one of our most relaxing weekends in a very long time. My folks who are less mobile read, napped, and gazed while my wife and I explored the Spit. A curious sea lion watched us and we watched a pair of Orcas. And the semi-tame deer across the road.
But as is always the case, it is now time to pack up, clean up and head home. We will remember this weekend for a very long time and will even try to return some day. And in all things, give thanks. -Black Diamond, WA
A wonderful week of sun and fog, ocean and deer and 10,000 Waves as a lovely base of operations as we explored the Olympic peninsula. The slower pace of life, the friendly folks in town, the good company of fellow hiker and others out to enjoy the local beauty. We enjoyed a splendid day in Victoria too, topped off by a really lovely meal at Bella Italia in Port Angeles. Lots of good scrabble in the evenings after a beautiful sunset every night. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home! -Silver Spring, MD
Thirty two years ago when the back door (a Dutch door) was the front door and this cabin ended at the living room wall, I first stayed here for a few nights. It was owned then by the original builders, patrons of the arts in Seattle. The slate wall behind the wood stove and the little hall way to the 2 bedrooms were inhabited by Eskimo carvings and one fabulous mask of the sort we only see now in museums. There was no deck, the trees were short enough that the Spit was fully visible, and I lay on the grass and listened to the sound of the seagull's wings beating as they occasionally flew by on important business.
It was not a happy summer for me, rather I sought refuge from turmoil here, and found it. My father brought me out, knowing the restorative qualities of the place. He took me out to dinner at the 3 Crabs and ate raw oysters, a nasty habit he had whenever given the opportunity. I know he left me here alone at my request afterward, and that I slept in the living room so I could wake to the sight and sound of the water breaking on the Spit.
I can't remember how I got back to Seattle, but only remember the feelings of being exquisitely cared for by him and by this place.
I returned at least twice with the man who is now my husband, and then the owner became ill and died and we had no more access to this magical place after 1980. A month or two ago my husband was searching online for a place for a short restorative for us and called me to come look at the photo of 10,000 Waves. We booked it on the spot, not knowing whether it really was our former haven. Now, four hours after walking in, we know it is and the old magic is settling in.
As people will do, I wander around in the small spaces, looking for remnants of those earlier visits, confirmation of memory, but all that is left, other than the Dutch door, the slate wall and cast iron stove, and the peace, is a well worn copy of the The Family of Man and several volumes of Art in America dating back into the 60s. It's enough, though; I water the flowers and make another cup of tea. It's good to be back.
Saw two hunting march hawks - white rump patch is conspicuous. Was mobbed by mosquitoes down on the tide flats at the end of the path. Found a tiny green toad with black spots on white stripes. It was visiting in the ivy planter by the picnic table. -Los Angeles, CA
This was a beautiful house, thanks for letting us rent it! We had a great week and many fun day trips to Victoria, Lake Cresent, and Rialto Beach. Hope to come back again. -Arlington, TX
Our family was so fortunate to have the "Sunny Sequim" weather. That, along with the beautiful vistas at every corner gave us a opportunity to relax and become closer with each other. We hiked the Hoh Rainforest, Hurricane Ridge, and Point Flattery - all beautiful. Our family also enjoyed shopping in Port Townsend - a cute port downtown. The country club is good to have a cocktail, but go to Dupuis for dinner. Ma Ma's in Port Angeles is good for brunch or a quick sandwich. We're off to Victoria!!! Thank you for letting our family relax in this wonderful town! -Boxley Valley and Conway, AR.
Gorgeous weather, an enchanting carriage ride in Victoria, a breathtaking hike up Hurricane trail, getting lost in the National Wild Life Refuge made our family reunion a memorable week.
We recommend the Mexican restaurant El Cazador and sea kayaking for adults and lake kayaking for the children and older adults.
20 million deer were spotted and fifty eagle sightings. Beautiful sunsets were added to this spectacular scenic experience. -Boston, Chicago, and Everett.
Provided a great, relaxing spot for our annual girls "camping" trip. We enjoyed the lavender festival - though we all concur, when you've see one lavender farm, you've seen them all. The weather Friday was cool, Saturday too - though the sun came out Saturday afternoon and stayed til Sunday.
Enjoyed the sound of the ocean waves and the beautiful views. The Olympic Peninsula is a special place.
Great place! Loved all the lavender and Dungeness Spit. The mud was full of tiny crabs, It was amazing. Our parents even let us drive around. Ha, ha - just kidding. Well anyways, we're about to bounce out the door. Great place to chill and love the name. Thanks. -Durango, CO and Seattle, WA
We saw an elephant seal at the end of Dungeness Spit!!! We enjoyed kayaking out to the New Dungeness Lighthouse with Don Rice of Dungeness Kayaking - really recommend him as a guide. We saw lots of sea lions, harbor seals, birds, and especially bald eagles all over the Dungeness Spit. The tour and climb to the top of the lighthouse was very fun and exciting. Cozy house with great views. Great fireworks at Port Angeles on July 4th. Thanks for leaving us use this great place!
Thank you for a beautiful time in a beautiful place! A nice change from out little trailer down on Jim Lotsgozelle Road - next to the Game Farm. Thanks again!
We found 3 clam shells and lots of dead crabs. I also saw a big deer, I took pictures. Oh, yeah! When we went to find clams and crabs, we couldn't get across the lake.
My idea was to make a boat out of wood. There was lots of wood. But we didn't do it. Then I played Yahtzee for the first time. Guess what, I won! Now we will go to bed. The next morning I woke up before my big brother, I always do. I brushed my teeth, got in my clothes, and had breakfast. We're going on a ferry boat then look around and come back.
Enjoyed the warm comfort of the house, the company of the deer family, the reassuring sounds of the waves and the fleeting view of the bald eagle. Thank you! -Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Phoenix, AZ; all originally from Sri Lanka
Like the poem below says, this place is a sanctuary for Humans. Great attention to detail in this secluded beachfront getaway. This is one of the most beautiful corners of the world. Thanks for letting us experience it! -Medford, OR
A wonderful, relaxing place. -Los Angeles, CA
Our family of four had a great time here. We watched ships and deer. We relaxed and watched some movies. We also went on a hike at Dungeness Spit. We looked at real estate with Simone. We really enjoyed the wildlife and especially the bald eagles and squirrels and quail. This is a great place, and we want to come back here again. -Richland, WA
The sound it lures-
To catch nature's surrounds,
And make it yours.
A winding path leads the way - for anticipation of your stay,
Tall, evangelinelike trees assure you that what is ahead - will put you at ease.
Eagles fly by and roost up high -
While sunsets paint the expanse of sky.
The deer, they silently creep, but, not off the cliff so steep!
A path, it leads a strenuous way -
To bring you down to the beautiful bay.
A spit that is world renown, the longest natural sand spit around -
A lighthouse lighting the way - so ships in the strait of Juan de Fuca will not go astray.
Gravel beach and tide flats - give marine wildlife a natural habitat.
To them - a place to rest, protection from wind and pounding surf, but to those who stay here - a harbor from problems pounding us on earth.
Do we not also need this critical feeding, resting and nesting time?
A refuge habitat in which to unwind?
Yes, the nurture of nature soothes us within -
And all this takes place in a cabin in Sequim -
Thank you for sharing your sanctuary with us. It was peaceful and restoring! Every attention to detail in the furnishings, kitchen equipment and throughout the cabin added to our comfort and relaxation for our stay! -St. Petersburg, FL
The beauty of the northwest is enhanced by this haven among the trees with an ocean view. This homey place with a view of ocean expanse allowed me the time to forget the troubles of an urban life. I met friendly residents of the area and watched deer graze in open pastures. Travels to Vancouver with elegant food and a trip to the maritime museum helps appreciate a life that many endured to settle this beautiful land. The Port Angeles "Corps Shop" brought back memories of my youth and part of my life's foundation. This short time at 10,000 Waves will be a great chapter in life I will not forget. -Fresno, CA
We are nine ladies on a retreat. So relaxing here and we were visited by two deer and a bald eagle too! Sunny on Friday and Saturday and a refreshing rain on Sunday. Large ships, calm seas, peaceful wildlife, warm building, good food, and friendship throughout our weekend. Thanks for allowing us this opportunity. -Tacoma, WA
Happy New Year! What a great place to start the new year. Awesome views, lots of passing ships. Walking the beach on the Spit and a visit to Hurricane Ridge (Olympic Natl Park) is a must do. We will surely be back for another stay - highly recommended. Thanks!
Our family will forever have great Christmas memories of 10,000 Waves. We enjoyed the local shopping and pleasantness of the Sequim-ites. Views of the Dungeness Spit are tremendous. We saw lots of visitors down on the spit on Christmas day. It was fun enjoying the deck and passing ships while drinking hot buttered rums. A great time was had by all. This place is the best. Thank you for letting us enjoy it!
Thanks for the lovely visit!
Our family had a great time here at 10,000 Waves. Thanks for such a well equipped kitchen and fabulous views. This will continue to be our secret get-away place.
What a beautiful location. We will be back. Boo!
Awesome! Beautiful! Thank you so much!
There was a big group of us here from several locations - Salt Lake City, UT, Kaysville, UT, Colorado Springs, CO, and Phoenix, AZ. Our niece / granddaughter was getting married. We couldn't have had a better location to retreat to. Its beautiful, peaceful, cozy, and I would love to bring the rest of my family back again soon!
I will miss the sound of crashing waves and the beautiful views of water, sand, pines, and setting sun. No matter what the weather, this area is great for hiking - in the mountains, the rain forest, or the beach. -West Chester, OH
What a beautiful, peaceful, restful spot this is. Easy access to the beach, sound of wind, waves, birds and various critters, and numerous drives, hikes, spas, shops and activities at hand. We all found sleep sound and restful spaces. The kitchen was very well equipped and our best eating happened here. The equipment - toys, high chair, and crib, allowed our Dutch friends to take car of their one year old with ease. Thank you. -Seattle, Colorado, Holland
Our group of eight kayakers arrived and were delighted with 10,000 Waves. It was a perfect place for us to gather. We kayaked out to the lighthouse and encountered a group of harbor seals who looked as if they were conspiring to attack. They circled us and watched as if they were trying to figure out how they could take us down. While on the kayak trip the rain began pelting us. The seas go so rough that we abandoned one kayak and doubled up in another. We arrived safe and drenched but better for the experience. On Saturday my brother prepared an incredibly fantabulous seafood boil which the entire group loved! We walked the beach and found a couple of mementos. Enjoyed the trip and stay. -Tacoma, WA.
We came from Atlanta, GA, Tucson, AZ, and Dobbs Ferry, NY to spend two weeks in this beautiful spot. We loved the deer in the yard, the cool weather, the berry picking at Grays Marsh Farm (we went four times!) and we especially loved the view of the ocean and the large ships. Thank you for having binoculars on the shelf four our use. We will think of 10,000 Waves often!
My husband and I stayed here with friends (opposite page) and had a very relaxing time. I think our favorite moments were spent outside on the deck at sunset listening to the Waves. Omaha, NE.
In 18 years my husband has been trying to get me to the Pacific Northwest. The east coast girl in me has resisted but he finally wore me down. Now that I've seen it, especially the view from 10,000 Waves and Hurricane Ridge I cannot believe I was so stubborn. This is truly "God's Country"! I'm ready to move here permanently. We loved our visit, as did our friends who traveled with us! We'll all be back with the kids next year!! USN retired. -Omaha, NE
Just arrived from Boston! This place is so fun!! When we arrived we went for a walk down by the beach. At first there was a lot of mud. My sister and I got our shoes really muddy.
Tonight is our last night here. Our stay was so much fun! We went horse back riding at Sequim Stables. We walked along the beach and also went to Crescent Beach; which was awesome. The house was also awesome. It had a great view and walk-able beach access. We loved the view and eating and sitting outside. I hope we come back soon!
The kids had fun building driftwood forts on Dungeness Spit. We hiked the trails at the spit park and enjoyed digging clams and playing in the tide pools. Cooked some great prime rib steaks on the grill and had great meals everyday. Best part was kayaking out to the Dungeness Lighthouse July 4th. Dungeness Kayaking Guide Service was great!! We will certainly be coming back to 10,000 Waves and can't wait until next summer. This is a gem of a location!
Had an awesome time! Caught baby crabs on the shore with the kids and big ones in the bay! Yum! Sea kayaking to the lighthouse was a highlight of the trip. Saw eagles and seals! Dug lots of clams and Geoduck clams by John Wayne Marina. Went hiking in the majestic Olympic Mountains on Hurricane Ridge. The weather was beautiful the whole time! Loved the house. Beautiful view from the deck. Watched eagles, dear, and big ships pass by - Cub Scout Pack 258, Richland, WA
This is so cool up here. I love the sea. I'm having so much fun. I'm 12 in three days. But I miss home and my friends!!
Came up for a marathon. Great place to relax and rest! Awesome view - see you next year.
Had a wonderful visit! It is so beautiful here, we don't want to go back to Phoenix. We loved relaxing here and enjoyed the view from the deck. Can't wait to come back!
We traveled from Phoenix, AZ, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery from this house. What a great area.
My adult children reserved this beautiful place as a birthday present for me. Along with 4 grandchildren, we were able to relax and spend time together. I wish it could have been a much longer visit.
Grandma Smith was here from Door County, WI. Sam and Katie were also here from Richland, WA. We are having a good time at our sleep over. Sam keeps picking on me (grandma). We are having such a good time we don't want to go back. We'll all be back next year.
Thank you for a wonderful few days. We drove to the Olympic overlook at Hurricane Ridge and played in the snow. We also drove by Crescent Lake. It was beautiful. We also enjoyed Port Angeles and listening to the ship communications with our marine radio.
What a great place to spend a weekend in February. We came to take a NW carving class. Friends came up to walk the spit, and hang out and talk and read and cook and play some games. The long driveway is a great entrance for this great "cabin" with incredible views. Very relaxing. I hope we make it back. Is this for sale?
Best Christmas ever! Great weather for two weeks - only rained one day. Saw lots of eagles, deer, and raccoons. Spent lots of time at Dungeness Spit National Wildlife Refuge walking, building forts, and stacking rocks. Saw several seals and lots of ducks. Took kids bowling in Port Angeles and toured the Dungeness River Audubon Society wild life museum. Saw several Navy submarines pass by. We walked down the trail several times to dig clams. We especially enjoyed eating at the El Cazador Mexican restaurant in Sequim (across from Safeway) and it was excellent. Had several friends from Poulsbo and Silverdale stop by for New Years Eve. Good times can't wait to come back. Thanks 10,000 waves you are a special place. We will forever remember this vacation.
BREATHTAKING VIEWS!! This is one of the most unique properties/locations we have ever seen. Places like this are usually national parks. At times watching the ships is a busy activity - even saw several submarines. The waves crashing on the spit is a million dollar sound. Could this be where they record those nature sounds for meditation CDs? We bought snow sleds for the kids (at Swains - they have everything!) and drove up to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. The snow doesn't start until about half way up the mountain. On our way we stopped at the visitor's center and it was a good thing we did - there was so many skiers and sledders that we had to wait to drive up until somebody first came down - rangers said the parking lot was full. We had a great time and spent the whole afternoon getting totally wore out sledding, and I never slept so well as that night. It was only the second time our kids saw real snow. We saw lots of bald eagles, seals, and tame deer. We usually try to vacation somewhere different every year, however we shall return here again and again. Thanks for sharing this wonderful property!
Beautiful view of the spit, great privacy, and we really appreciated how well equipped the kitchen was! Played in powdery snow on Hurricane Ridge and walked the spit. Hope to be back!
IT WAS GREAT! -Queensland, Australia
Had a very nice stay at 10,000 Waves. The view was outstanding and we hate to return back to reality!
We are two families. One family is from Seattle and the other is from Bainbridge. We enjoyed the view and the fresh air. We were impressed with the very well equipped kitchen and linen closet.
Spent a full week here. Nice mix of Sequim sunshine, showers, and windstorm. The continuous sound of waves on the spit was very relaxing. Toured all the local sites and especially liked the Olympic drive through animal park. Found great food at the High-Way 101 Dinner! We appreciated the books here as the quiet makes good reading atmosphere. We may return someday.
10,000 Waves is truly a wonderful place to vacation. We enjoyed the house, the view, the spit and found the people of Sequim to be terrific neighbors - We hope to come back someday.
10,000 waves was a great house for the two families. It had a great view and though it was small it had enough room. I had a great time at the house of 10,000 waves.
We had a wonderful time both exploring Olympic Peninsula-Park and staying at 10,000 Waves. Never saw the eagle, but did see plenty of grouse and deer walking along the beach (bottom of path from 10,000 waves.) Watching the harbor seals along the spit was also a real treat. Fantastic view and location! Great weather for the most of the week. Despite the blackout in NY putting a crimp into our travel plans back. All said this was a perfect vacation in a perfect setting.
We had a great time! What a wonderful place to visit. We saw Sol Duc Falls, Hurricane Ridge and hiked the Dungeness Spit. Did not quite make it to the lighthouse. We will save that for next visit. THE VIEW WAS SPECTACULAR! Thank you for a wonderful experience. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. Thank You.
We really enjoyed our stay. We loved the Marine Center. We loved the view of the beach. We went hiking as well. We loved 10,000 Waves great waves. We will come back some day.
We all had a very wonderful time at the Ten Thousand Waves Cabin!! It was so relaxing. Having access to the Spit was great for walking and sight seeing. The cabin was so nice to come back to after a long day of hiking. We enjoyed our stay very much!!
Outstanding weather this whole week. Kids had a great time on the beach and Spit during the morning low tides. We dug clams every morning on the beach. Saw lots of passing ships. Kids built forts from driftwood out on the Spit. Just plain had a great time and great weather in the Sequim Rain Shadow. Family spent every night eating dinner out on the deck listening to the waves crash on the Spit - how loud and thunderous the waves are on returning tide. Saw the aforementioned deer and her bambi and the birds nesting in bird houses. We enjoyed the 4th of July fireworks in Port Angeles - great show. We even found some great antiques and treasures at neighborhood yard sales this weekend. 10,000 Waves is great! Great views, great crashing waves sounds, bald eagles - cant be beat anywhere! Can't wait to return again. Thanks for the great memories.
It's very early in the morn and I cant sleep - neither can I see very well to write or read, but I'm attempting both - forgot my reading glasses. We came together to celebrate the summer solstice - seven women with disparate visions, missions, and goals in life - yet they all merge on the road of common understandings. We are seeking - dreaming - yearning - for better selves - friendship - companionship - support -comfort - laughter - acceptance - happiness. We've come to 10,000 Waves hoping to start a tradition of renewal for our goals and dreams - we'll all check in next year - same bat time, same bat channel to see if we've succeeded. I hope so - its been a grand beginning and I look forward to more of it!
In lieu of a description of our time here, which could never live up to the experience itself: Today - If ever there were a spring day so perfect, so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze that it made you want to throw open all the windows in the house and unlatch the door to the canary's cage, indeed, rip the little door from its jamb, a day when the cool brick paths and the garden bursting with peonies seemed so etched in sunlight that you felt like taking a hammer to the glass paperweight on the living room end table, releasing the inhabitants from their snow-covered cottage so they could walk out, holding hands and squinting into this larger dome of blue and white well, today is just that kind of day.
Beautiful! We love the solitude and huge windows and deck to enjoy it all. Dug clams, walked the beach, sat on the deck. There are chickadees nesting in the green birdhouse by the shed. Lots of deer - a doe with just born twins, young buck in velvet. They aren't shy and enjoy fine dining in all these gardens. They use the stairs to the beach. The quail have a huge covey of babies, so they scold us loudly when we walk the driveway. We enjoyed the variety of ships passing by. Saw an eagle capture lunch in the water. This is a very nice retreat - and so well set up - Thank you!
We came up to get away from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, exchanging the rat race for a mother seal and her yelping pups. We also hoped to catch some sun in the famed "Banana Belt" of western Washington. Well, the shorts stayed in our bags, the sun decided not to play, replaced by the frolicking birds and the gang of rowdy seals. Socked in with clouds we decided to forego a drive up to Hurricane Ridge and instead discovered the Lost Mountain Winery. What a treat! We added some troll king salmon, some fresh asparagus and had ourselves a memorable BBQ. Later, a pot of coffee, a dab of bittersweet chocolate and a warm fire allowed us to settle in and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of 10,000 Waves. We'll certainly be back!
It was a long way to come (from England) but well worth it. Not sure what happened to the Sequim shadow, but until later it also seemed to have gone on holiday. Still we enjoyed the area and any wet weather failed to impeded our progress (bit like home!). Scenery magnificent, food highly edible and generous, welcome very friendly. Hope we can return one day. P.S. - in such a relaxing place, we hav
