About Patti

We moved to the beach from Federal Way when we were in our 40's and the next thing we knew we are in our 60's! Time flies when you're having fun. I have been coming to this beautiful ocean location since I was a little girl and due to our careers, we were able to make our dream come true of living here after our children were raised. We built our guest apartment and home next door to my family's cabin which was built in 1957. Living here with the ocean right in front of us has been amazing. The wonderful guests we have had only make it richer.

Patti purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Patti chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

You are right on the beach with your own private hot tub, patio, BBQ, fire pit and beautifully landscaped yard. My family found this slice of heaven when I was a little girl. I have loved it ever since. We built our beach house with guests in mind. Every amenity you can think of is here. Just bring your food and clothes and be ready to relax and be a beach bum.

What makes this apartment unique

Waking up to the pristine ocean with eagles, seagulls, pelicans, deer, fishing boats and activities on the beach with a cup of coffee will fill up your senses. Lounge in the living room, on the patio or in the hot tub or take a beach walk and enjoy the outdoor heated shower when you come off the beach. Walk to the nearby town of Pacific Beach for an espresso and shopping, head north to the Moclips River or head east to the unspoiled forests. Did I mention the incredible winter storms?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We went to The Beach Bum Inn/106356 for a week, had a wonderful time. Recommend this unit and locatioin to anyone looking for a quiet spot with long walks on the beach and a hot tub. Good dining is not far away either.

The location is superb with no exception and it is what makes this the place ideal stay.

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, beautiful and cozy. Friendly owners willing to help. Kept well and stocked with all basics that you need. If you are staying more than a weekend, bring a cooler as the frig is an under counter and no freezer space except for ice cubes. There is no clothing closet space and very few hooks for hanging clothes on so be aware when you pack. The only negative is the bed. Springs that creek and to aging bodies too soft or broken down to support a good nights sleep. We'd love to stay a week in the summer if it weren't for the bed. The hot tub very clean and hot. We only used it once without the jets on but it was still fantastic. It's sweet. Enjoy if you decide to stay here.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay but I have to comment on some things mentioned. When I send out directions I ask if you would like additional frig space. There is a freezer and frig space in the adjoining garage. Once I know you need it, the garage door is left unlocked for easy access. I have found that different people like different beds. We just had a review where our guests loved it. Sorry it was uncomfortable for you. The mattress is close to new. Why didn't you use the jets for the hot tub? They work just fine. There is an armoire outside the bedroom door with space for hanging clothes and hangers. There are drawers right below it. I am sorry you were not aware of all this. Thank you for taking the time to review. These things were available for you. I wish you had asked.

Zen retreat at the Beach Bum Inn!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 3 nights with another couple and our dog. The view from the living room/ kitchen was amazing! With private beach access right outside the door we went on lots of walks. Overall a wonderful weekend.

This is the best place in Grays Harbor County!

  • 5 of 5

Moclips is a census-designated place in Grays Harbor County, Washington. I highly recommend staying here because the bed is extremely comfortable (and features an ocean view from the bedroom), the hot tub is hot, the stove is gas-lit, the beach views are amazing and the local radio station is all the entertainment you need. Pacific Beach, which is about two miles to the south is a cute town (accessible via the beach when the tide is out). Despite the stormy weather in December when we visited, we lucked out with a sunny day and feared a sunburn, which, to our surprise, was not realized. The beach is one of the most beautiful on the south coast of Washington (no stacks here; travel north to Shi Shi if you're interested in the craggy stuff). Taholah (10 miles to the north) has a Skippy's (fish and chips!) and a lot of excited feral dogs that will not cede your way even after honking your horn. Aberdeen is where to get groceries before you come here. Be forewarned that the pans onsite are all nonstick and heavily used, but there are many other kitchen utensils in the drawers that you may not expect, including a cheese grater, a serrated knife, a coffee maker (one package of coffee included), strainers, et cetera. In other words, this place offers almost all conveniences you may require while at the same time offering views of the Pacific Ocean that are unparalleled in Washington. Come here, cook food, sit in the hot tub and enjoy life before Moclips is wiped out by an inevitable tsunami. FIVE STARS!!!

Huge windows, ocean right there, watched winter storms while warm and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here! Brought our sweet older dog, who was more interested in lounging than running on the beach, but that suited us fine. The propane fireplace in the living room kept us cozy and was truly lovely to look at (and I'm usually only a fan of staring at "real" wood-burning fireplaces, but this was beautiful), and was on a thermostat, so it took care of itself. Perfect.

The real star of the show, of course, is the ocean. The wall facing the beach is pretty much all windows, so we could marvel at the waves and wind and rain (and hail!) in total comfort. Never felt like we were missing anything by being inside. Of course, we did brave the weather and go to the beach a few times (we knew it was winter, and bundled up, and it was fine). A very quick walk on an easy path through the dunes and we were there. Just lovely.

The bed was super-comfy, and we could see (and hear) the ocean from bed as well. Luxury.

The kitchen was great too; we brought a ton of groceries and cooked up a couple feasts. Plenty of room in the oven for the ham we brought, and all the dishes, pans, utensils, etc., that we could have possibly needed.

Everything was perfectly clean and well maintained, and I really loved how it was decorated.

For those who might want some screen time: We streamed movies over the wifi with no problem. We also brought a couple DVDs and used the player, and in fact also watched a bit of TV (it was the Sounders' Championship game that weekend, and they won!).

Oh, and the hot tub! Right outside the door, under a roof, with a view of the ocean. Now that is luxury. It was all ready to go, nice and warm, and we climbed in and stared at the waves. So relaxing.

All in all, it was one of the best places I've stayed. And I've been to lots of places in Moclips and other oceanside spots. I really felt in the presence of the ocean the entire time. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Fantastic Thanksgiving Stay

  • 5 of 5

The stay at the Beach Bum exceeded all expectations. All the little extras made us comfortable and the place was immaculate. Our little dogs loved the easy access to the beach, too. We already paid our deposit fee for next Turkey Day.

Have you ever been afraid to write a review because whatever you are reviewing was just TOO GOOD?! Well, that is how I feel about The Beach Bum Inn. I don't want everyone to know how amazing and perfect this location is because then everyone will begin staying there and I will never be able to book again! Haha, But really I can't say enough about how beautiful this location is. Every little detail was thought about. It is warm and cozy yet light and bright. And the view can't be put into words just how spectacular it is. I can't wait to go back.
