“Fantastic cabins!”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

I recently stayed in the Eagle’s Nest cabin for several nights with my extended family. Because of the size of our group, we rented virtually every cabin at the resort and pretty much had the place to ourselves. It was fantastic! Easy to follow directions to our cabin (and parking) upon check-in and the space was very well decorated and clean! The kitchen had everything we needed….and then some! The indoor space at the Eagle’s Nest was open and a great place for our “cocktail reception” and the first leg of our progressive dinner for 20+ people. The living room opens right only the large deck with FANTASTIC views of the water and the evening sunset!

Since our family rented pretty much the entire resort, I can also say that every cabin was unique and great for our whole group. We spent much of our time at the Eagle’s Nest (top of the hill) and down by the water at the Boathouse and Clam Diggers, which had GREAT access right on the water and plenty of outside seating around the fire pit for the whole group. The other three cabins that we had (Captains, Skippers and Landing) were fantastic as well. The balcony views from these were a little different in that these cabins were in the middle of the hill, so-to-speak (between the water cabins and the Eagle’s Nest at the top of the hill), so the views of the water were more tree covered than the other three cabins previously mentioned, but they were equally fantastic. We enjoyed sitting out on these balconies and staying cool in the shade during the hot afternoons!

The cabins had everything we needed --- including extra paper towels and toilet paper which a lot of places forget about. The Eagle’s Nest had a dishwasher that we put to great use and plenty of kitchen utensils and dinnerware (not just the standard) and small appliances (toaster, coffee machine). The rooms were clean and well-maintained.

The owners were also great! A group of us were relaxing out on the dock one afternoon and they stopped by for a great chat and gave us the history of the place, great information about the area, etc. They could not have been nicer!

I would definitely recomment this place and I can't wait until I get a chance to go back!

Thank you Jenni L! You guys were fun!! :) We loved hanging out on the dock with everyone. Our favorite thing about being here is having the opportunity to meet great people and share stories - especially when you all come from different places. We loved that you all took off on different adventures, but always made it a point to come back together in the afternoon to share meals and time together. Thanks again for including us!
Cheers~

This spot is a gem. Truly one of those rare finds that you stumble upon and then don't want to tell anyone about. We stayed at the boathouse and it did not disappoint. We had plans to check out the area etc... which we did, but next time we will just bring our stuff and settle in. What a wonderful experience. Tracy and Lavon (the owners) took care of everything. Thank you both for an amazing vacation. See you next year!!!!

Thanks for the review. We've heard that same sentiment before from families who arrive with a long itinerary of things to see and do, but end up staying put the whole time...except for maybe a trip to the store for more goodies. We love it! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Next time...we'll bring the marshmallows. :)

Wow, thanks Tracee and Lavon for the wonderful weekend at your resort. Really enjoyed our long weekend, could not have asked for a better place to stay. Although i gotta say, our large extended family rented the entire resort and we were probably a handful..lol could never tell from the service we received from the ladies.

As mentioned we rented the entire resort so we got a chance to look in every cabin, they were all awesome. Clean, beds made, kitchens well stocked with all the amenities. Our cabin was the landing, it was the first cabin built so it kinda has a retro feel, which was inline with our personalities, like it was built for us. It has a large yard area perfect for family games and watching the beautiful sunsets.

The views from this resort, cannot say enough about, they are truely magnificent, the absolute best feature after the owners. Who are absolute sweethearts, we loved them.

When i read some other the other reviews i was a little surprised, my first thought was, do they have the right resort?? This cannot be the same place we stayed at.. our experience was wonderful.

I have read trip advisor often for our vacations and I have learned that you cannot please all the people all the time. Some travellers are bitter bunnies who should stay home cause no place will be good enough. To the rest of the happy vacationers I totally endorse this resort and would recommend to anyone. Cannot wait to return..

As a after thought have travelled quite a bit, and believe me Inhave stayed in some dives this is not one of tnose.

We often get invited to join in on festivities...but seriously....you immediately made us feel like we were already part of the family. What good fun. The best part? You all stayed right here - together - and just hung out - together. We loved spending time with you, getting special recipes from Auntie P. and talking story about crazy rides through the back pasture back home in Canada -eh! :) You guys are great. Thanks for making our summer. Hope the boys made it back safe from their motorcycle ride north! Say hi to Auntie for us.

We recently spent time at the Sunset Marine Resort with our extended family. The resort was PERFECT for our group. All of the cabins are well-appointed with everything you might need for your stay, and more. I personally stayed in the Eagle's Nest....it was lovely. Great space indoor and outdoor for family dinners and hanging out to enjoy good food, yummy drinks, and gorgeous sunset views. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the cabin was clean, and the location was beautiful. I'm looking forward to visiting again in the future! Thanks for your hospitality! :)

Room Tip: Eagle's Nest has great space for larger groups--easy to access, and would be perfect for anyone...

Hi Becky B...and the rest of the family. It was great to finally meet you all in person and we feel privileged to have hosted one of your family reunions. Considering some of the amazing previous locations you have chosen, we're glad to know that ours was a perfect spot. We love that you make it a point to be together at least every other year and that everyone looks forward to it...even the "yutes." :) (youths) On Kauai....that is considered Ohana - togetherness/family - and it is what shapes our time here at the resort.
Thanks again~

Stunning sunsets, eagle sightings, and an incredible view of Sequim Bay - Sunset Marine Resort has all of this, and more! My partner and I love it here (especially the Tree House). We make it a point to treat ourselves to a stay at the resort three or four times a year. The cabins are cozy, and the staff is friendly. We like to hunker down, prepare delicious meals and enjoy a quiet romantic weekend free from all of the craziness of the "real" world. This place is a dream, and we can't wait for our next chance to come back.

I recently stayed a third visit at Sunset Marine Resort with my family, who arrived from out of town. Our cabin, the Eagle's Nest, was sparkling clean, comfortable and had all the amenities we needed to enjoy our four day vacation. Arriving late after a long travel day, we especially appreciated the informal and easy self check-in procedures, which was included with our confirmation, via email. The owners, Lavon and Tracie, were fantastic hosts and promptly answered our questions regarding wood for the firepit, the best dining spots and hiking trails on the peninsula. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the tranquility and beauty of the property to enjoy all the peninsula offers, however. I recommend renting a kayak and paddling around the bay or jumping on a mountain bike and exploring nearby trails. My family will have to come back to explore areas away from the resort! We look forward to our next stay at Sunset Marine Resort.

Thanks for the review GKite. It was great to hang out with you and your family again and catch up on the wonderful things happening in your lives. You folks are what makes Sunset Marine Resort such a special place. We're glad you like the self check in - that comes from many years of guests letting us know that they prefer to come and go on their own schedule. We recently incorporated the Resort Map in the reminder email that goes out 24 hours in advance, just to make sure everyone knows where to go and what to do. Of course you all know the routine already. :)
We definitely recommend heading out to the National Park or Dungeness Recreation Area next time you are here. Give that big wonderful pooch a hug for us!
Thanks again~
