Happy Valley is generally not windy. There may be a little breeze in the afternoon, but, as everyone here has answered, nothing like the flats! And, definitely not a frequent wind. Happy Valley is a pretty, quiet area! Frequent 15-18 mph is a lot of wind. Many areas in Sequim only run 7-8 mph, or less. We have a weather station on our roof. http://www.sequim.com

I used to live in the Bell Hill subdivision on the back side facing Happy Valley. It wasn't as windy, but I remember sitting outside on our deck (facing west) in the summer evenings and the wind would pick up around 6pm. If you find a house you like, maybe check out the wind conditions at different times of the day. A lot of it will also depend on the direction the home or outdoor area is facing and if there are nearby trees or other wind blocks.

Feel free to contact any of us directly by just clicking on our profile & sending an email from there. You have very good information from the local agents already & it is correct. I know because I lived in Port Townsend for over 18 years before I moved to Seattle. Along with being an agent, I am also a loan originator. I know Sequim very well & there is a particular property that I have seen there that I think is very well priced, if it is anything like what you are looking for. Here is the link to it:

Feel free to contact me by email or phone if you want to discuss anything.

Happy Valley is surrounded by trees and mountains and that helps in blocking the wind, but that does not mean you won't get some just not as windy as the flats. Happy Valley is a great area to live. You can email me at zoe@olypen.com.

That is true generally speaking. In a general sense the farther you get from the north or west facing coastline the less wind you will expierence. I am not a big fan of wind myself. Because of this my rule of thumb is to stay 1 mile inland of any north to northwest facing coasts on the strait. Good ares to consider would be Klahanne, Lost Montain, Bell Hill, Port Williams, Eagle or Macleay.
