Luxurious home w/ mtn views & hot tub - theater, fitness room, & a koi pond, too

If you're coming to Sequim for a getaway, indulge in this spectacular vacation home, and enjoy views of Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Mountains. Enjoy in-house amenities like a private hot tub, movie theater, fitness room, and a koi pond.

Located less than a mile from the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Sequim Bay, this home offers wooded seclusion. In-town conveniences are close by, with grocery shopping just 12 miles away, and Olympic National Park is 68 miles away. Due to Sequim's close proximity to the Olympic Mountains, you'll reap the benefits of being protected from the typical rains the rest of the state gets, a phenomenon that's earned this town the title of "Sunny Sequim."

Stately and imposing, this home stands out with unique architecture and a profusion of windows. Pull into the driveway and take in the wooded surroundings. Then step inside and marvel at the koi pond surrounded by tropical greenery. Further inside, notice distinctive decor and spaciousness. Relax in the living room on the stylish rose-colored sofas, and bask in the natural light that filters in. Three sets of double glass doors open wide to create an open-air atmosphere. On chilly nights, warm up with a fire in the fireplace, which features a stainless steel facade.

The open-concept design creates expansion and a nice flow across the living/dining/kitchen areas. Create a culinary feast in the kitchen, which has plentiful counter space and storage, stainless appliances, and a center cooktop island. Gather at the dining table for eight, and enjoy your meal together with the soothing sound of running water from the koi pond just adjacent to you. After dinner, take a well-deserved soak in the private hot tub on the deck, or build a fire in the outdoor firepit.

This home offers many bonuses. Complimentary WiFi is available so you can stay connected with friends back home. Spend some time in the family room and catch a movie on the large flatscreen TV after you make a selection from the DVD library. And for a truly extravagant experience, have a movie night in the in-house theater. Lower the lights and sink into the plush leather seats - there's one for each of you - an enjoy a movie marathon. Choose from the available games for both kids and adults, including two gaming systems. If you don't want to let your workout routine slide while on vacation, visit the well-equipped fitness room.

With four bedrooms and three baths, this home has a maximum occupancy of eight. The master suite features a king-size bed, lots of closet and storage space, and a full bath with a large stand-alone shower. The other three bedrooms have queen beds. This home also offers a large laundry room with a stainless washer and dryer plenty of counter space for sorting and folding laundry.

Chances are you won't want to leave considering all this home has to offer, but if you're in the mood to explore, there's plenty to do in the area. Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is 18 miles away, and Dungeness River Audubon Center is only 15 miles away. Known as the "Lavender Capital of North America" and rivaled only by France, Sequim boasts several lavender farms you can visit and a lavender festival every July.

Sequim also offers a few art galleries and historic sites, like the New Dungeness Lighthouse and the Historic Dungeness Schoolhouse. And if nightlife appeals to you, Seven Cedars Casino is only five miles away.

Come to Sequim for some R&R and find everything you need for a fun and relaxing getaway under one roof. Make your reservation today, and prepare for an unforgettable vacation in this beautiful home.

We like the cool theater and exotic in-house garden a lot!
Alan H. Mar 2019
A truly unique hideaway. Sorry that we only got to stay for two nights and hope to return in the future. Great selection of movies in the theater.
Josh W. Dec 2018
We came here to relax and get away from it all, and relaxation is exactly what we found! Secluded and quiet -perfect for a weekend retreat. Property manager was very responsive and answered any questions that came up during our stay. There were a few struggles getting some if the extensive AV equipment to work properly (multi-zone audio, network cabling, etc.), but that could be due to a large storm causing sweeping power outages in the area for a short period the first night. Definitely not a deal breaker as everything else came back to life as soon as power was restored. Just take a dip in the hot tub or a steam shower and unplug!
Patrick L. Dec 2018
Great house.
Shawn E. Oct 2018
Secluded, spacious and quiet area.

Cleaning staff was professional and very helpful.
Susan G. Oct 2018
The house was amazing, with the entry way and the waterfall feature.. So relaxing! The theater room was used several times during the week. With the huge selections of movies...we could’ve just stayed in every day if we wanted to. This home is cozy and comfy. Would like to stay again next year!
Vince R. Apr 2018
Nice place! Hot tub was out of commission from prior guests so that was a disappointment and the reason for the mark down. Koi pond and water feature were nice, and even nicer that I could turn it off. Place was well stocked and has me looking forward to checking into VRBOs in the near future
KHAIRIN FAZIRA A. Mar 2018
Everything was perfect! But the sound system on the wall has no instructions on how to use it. That’s a bummer. But all in all, this house has everything that we could imagine!
Mike M. Mar 2018
It was all I thought. Awesome place
Brianne I. Jan 2018
We had a great time at this place. The house is stunningly beautiful. Quiet peaceful surroundings. The atrium with Koi pond is a beautiful feature and the indoor hot tub nestled within the gardens is a wonderful addition. I would not recommend this place for small children. We had 3 kids and definitely had to watch the youngest one around the pond. We were all excited about the movie theater and games which did not work. Luckily Vacasa was on it and sent someone out to fix it the next day but none of us could get any of the screens working. Loved the steam shower in the master bedroom and beds and mattresses were comfortable. The kitchen was a little difficult to figure out with all the smart devices. Finally got the hang of it after 3 days. Also they did not remove one of the broken chairs that was in a previous review that we later sat in and broke. Luckily no one got injured but management should have taken care of. Other than that we loved the place and would definitely stay here again!

To start with, while we were on the way to the house for the stay, got a call from property management to let us know that the house is not yet ready and got a delay of 1.5 hours and she immediately gave a small amount as refund, which was appreciated. But we had to delay our ride and took a stop on the way to cover it up

House looks big and neat for 2 days of stay. Was really excited to see the home surround sound all over the house, but struggled for nearly 4 hours to give up that none of those really work.

Home theatre was good, but at first it was not working as per the instruction written over there. Had to dig in for nearly 1-2 hours and made it to work. I would suggest the property management to check on those before handing it to next visitors.

One of the chairs in the dining table was broken but was not replaced, on which I sat and tripped down. Maintenance should have noticed that and removed the damaged chair prior to our visit.

Hot tub was found inside the house and kids were excited see, and we found it dirty with prior persons use only after opening. Couldn't find any way to drain that water and fill in new water.

Overall, stay was OK for 2 nights.
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest providing feedback about your stay at Arcadian Garden. We do apologize if some inconveniences occurred during this stay. Here at Vacasa it is our highest priority to make sure each guest has the best experience possible, and our 24/7 guest hotline is always available to help if anything comes up. We have taken this feedback seriously and have since removed the damaged chair and have double checked the hot tub. The sound system in this home is advanced with the variety of systems in place. We have placed a sheet for reference.

We were so happy with our stay! The house is amazing. Truly, you don't need to leave the home for days. The movie theater is wonderful. The koi pond and waterfall in the atrium are such nice features. This isn't a house to live in since it is very inhospitable for little kids (our group didn't have any), but it's a great vacation rental for a group of folks who want their own space and great options for spaces to commune in (theater, hot tub, atrium).

There were just a few things that our group had issues with and while they don't bring down our 5-star review, just some things to keep in mind:
- Don't bring kids younger than 10 here!
- A few hairs from other people found in 2 of the beds.
- Couldn't get sound system and fireplaces to work. Not sure if they were taken out of commission. It might be helpful to have a sign to say that they aren't usable instead of us wasting a considerable amount of time trying to get them to work.
- More instructions. Despite some instructions in the theater, we still had problems. Hot tub too. There's a learning curve to figure out many things in the house. This house is probably better for a week or so stay because there will be less frustration as you get used to things.

Overall, probably the best and most unique rental I've ever experienced!
Elizabeth C. Dec 2017
An amazingly unique house - where else would you find a hot tub in a jungle in the living room, and your own movie theatre? Really great for groups.
Charles G. Dec 2017
From the piano, to the theater room, to the hot tub, gourmet kitchen and the ambience of the koi pond... this was the perfect place to celebrate the Christmas holiday.
Becky A. Dec 2017
The photos of this house do not do it justice. It's massive, insanely clean, and you'll never be bored. Eight adults spent Thanksgiving here and we hardly left. The koi pond is a real treat, the steamer in the shower was next level, and the theater was really the icing on the cake.
10/10 would stay again.
Courtney N E. Dec 2017
This place really is beautiful. I think my favorite place to be was in the kitchen. If you like to cook or entertain, you'll like this. The inside nature portion of the house was much larger than expected and the spa is actually inside that area which was great. There's a TV by the spa that we thought we would be able to watch movies from, but it wasn't working. The theater room is another great feature. Bed mattress were ok, but I definitely snored more than usual, so not as soft as I'm used to. The master bedroom has a wonderfully large walk in closet that was something that I will have to duplicate in my next home. As well as the shower. If you're not used to septic, be prepared for a bit of an egg smell or maybe it was just this place. I don't know. The drive in is a little scary (dark no lights outside or on the driveway), so I would suggest people get there before the sunsets. FYI: there is NO CABLE, so if you thought that your downtime there was going to be something other than movies (mainly scary ones there....huge collection though of movies to choose from), then think of some other options of entertainment. We had already planned on some games, so it went fine for us. Overall, this place was great and if I wasn't someone who didn't like to go to place twice, I would go back to this place for sure.
Scott S. Oct 2017
House was amazing, but left something to be desired. Maintenance guy stopped by and came in unannounced!! Mice still present....
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest leaving a review for us to improve from. We would like to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience they may have experienced. Please be assured that we have followed up with a professional extermination service to address the mouse in the house. They have placed the appropriate tools to remove the critters from the home. Please accept our apology for the maintenance man entering the property. While he did knock and call out, he thought this guest would be away during that time since we had advised him of the guest's permission to enter the property to address the fireplace.

From a hot tub to movie theatre to koi pond--who could want more?
Gregory L. Aug 2017
Very interesting home and just the sort of place we hope for to have our immediate family reunion gatherings that move around the country. Thumbs up for kayaking in Freshwater Bay and the strait of Juan de Fuca, hiking Hurricane Ridge and the Hoh Rainforest, visiting the Lavender farms, wine tasting at Harbinger winery, and dining at Alder Wood Bistro. Located well for day-trips to Victoria and whale-watching as well.
As a high-tech home, the main shortcomings we experienced was a need for better instruction on how to utilize the audiovisual systems throughout the house, some lights, the incredible master shower, and some kitchen implements. The grill was decrepit and non-functional, and the deck was devoid of furniture; improving both of these issues would add additional value for utilizing the outdoor areas in such a nice private setting.
Kimberly M. May 2017
Six of us, three couples, stayed at the house for 3 nights for a little getaway. Enjoyed the koi pond, the theater and the grounds. Hot tub was also a plus!
Jody C. May 2017
This house is amazing! Unique and makes you feel like a millionaire with all the cool technology, private movie theater and your own indoor jungle. It was secluded and peaceful and we'll definitely stay again
Mark A. May 2017
The Good:
It was our first visit to Washington. The home's setting and surrounding area was fantastic. The home was very spacious. There were countless board games, video games, and big movie library to keep us well entertained. It was great experiencing the koi pond atrium and movie theater. We also got a glimpse of the neiborly wildlife, as we got to see a doe roam through the grass knolls.

The Bad:
During second day, we encountered a swarm of ants marching around the kitchen. Good thing the house was supplied with bug spray. A piece of advice for other potential guests: never leave food out more than an hour. Other uninvited critters were a number of big banana snails lurking around the outside grounds of the property. Some of the elaborate gadgets were a bit of a hassle operating. Towards the end of our stay, we received a call from the manager and strongly insisted to have a contractor conduct repair bids around the house. While I understand the owner needed to have these repair estimates, I kindly asked the manager to have the bids done after my stay. It seemed the manager didn't took our peace of mind into consideration. While we enjoyed Sequim and Port Angeles area, I will have to look at other rentals nearby for our next visit.
Lindsay S. Apr 2017
This house is pretty amazing. Lots of stuff for entertainment and the indoor atrium is awesome. Spent the weekend here with some friends and it was perfect for us. Only thing that was an issue was all the little sugar ants in the kitchen. They were terrible! Overall, we had a great time and loved the quiet location!
Amy H. Apr 2017
Very usual and fun home. The downside is the "indoor ecosystem" meant you had bugs that roamed outside their territory and made their way into the kitchen and bedrooms.
Charles G. Apr 2017
We were really excited to come to this house for our spring break vacation with our 4 kids. We were planning on staying for 4 nights, but on the 2nd night we discovered this house has mice living in it. There were mouse droppings by the kitchen floor, on the red couches in the living room, on the red leather chairs in the theater room, in the cup holders, it was super gross. Then we saw the mice running out of the theater room, one of them got into one of my wife's shoes. Keep it mind we have a 9 month old baby with us, obviously we didn't want to put her down anywhere in the house. On top of that there were ants in the kitchen trying to get into our food. We had to put all of our food outside in our car to keep it away from the mice and ants. We were very uncomfortable in this house and after we discovered the mice we were not going to stay. I called Vacasa on Monday night after we saw the mice and they offered to move us to a different house about an hour away, but said it wouldn't be ready until 4pm. While I was thankful for the opportunity to move to a different house, I felt that Vacasa should refund us some of our money considering that we had been planning this vacation for months to get away and relax and we came to this house and we couldn't relax at all. Also, considering that we are paying a cleaning fee even though the house wasn't clean or sanititary when we got there, and we had to wait around for the next house to be ready instead of being able to enjoy our vacation home. When I asked for a partial refund for all of the trouble we had been through and missed time to relax the woman I talked to on the phone from Vacasa became very defensive and uncompassionate and said that it wasn't their fault because this was the first time it was reported that their was a problem in the house. The next day I got an email from from a manger who apologized and said they had been dealing with the mice and ants for weeks. Overall it worked out good that we got moved to a nice house in Port Hadlock and we enjoyed our last 2 days there, but I thought that Vacasa would go the extra mile and treat us better than they did. I thought they would give us some kind of refund for all of our trouble. I thought they would believe the customer is always right and be more understanding.
We have used Vacasa before and would like to use them again in the future, but definitely not in this home.
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize for the problem with the mice during this reservation. The Property Manager and owner have been working on this problem and have it under control now. Again, we apologize for the disappointments and frustrations this situation caused.

We picked this home because it was very close to Gardiner the boat launch where my was participating in the fishing derby. We also wanted something unique that would be not our usual sort of Dwelling Place. This house met all the criteria our children were taking pictures and sending it to their friendsfrom the first minute we arrived. It was a little bit Hi-Tech for us we lean a little to the redneck way of life but luckily we brought some teenagers with us and they were very able to navigate the technology and the house. The theater room was a huge hit and being able to sit in the hot tub and watch movies was also a activity. I don't think I could recommend this house for people with little children toddlers because of the drop off into the atrium by the dining room, but are youngest was 6 years old and we had so much fun watching them explore and discover. The most fabulous discovery what was the actual beds all memory foam mattresses what a wonderful sleep we had. I can't tell you how many times I've paid hundreds of dollars for hotel rooms with terribly firm hard beds, The beds in this house are wonderful. If you have teenagers or older children this is the perfect vacation home for you.
Nathan C. Feb 2017
House was a great stay and the Theater was the best part ???? We watched 4 movies and played some Rock Band on the Xbox in the Theater and it was awesome!
Katie K. Jan 2017
This was a very interesting and unique house. We had four couples staying in the home for a weekend, and it was very comfortable and spacious for accomodating a group of our size. The theater room was great, though actually watching a movie initially proved to be a bit complicated, as no instructions were provided. There is a large solarium in the center of the home, which is a pretty neat area, but seems dangerous for small children or elderly guests--There is a narrow bridge that crosses over the pond, with no railing and an uneven, natural stone surface. The kitchen is large and we'll equipped, and made cooking our meals at the house quite enjoyable. There is also plenty of room for everyone to sit down and eat meals together. There are all types of activities nearby. Some of us hiked while others enjoyed gambling at the nearby casino.
