About Lorrie

We started going to this beach as a family and loved it so much we bought a beautiful landmark house that the core was originally built 1910. We have updated, overhauled, and carefully remodeled keeping the integrity and charm of the original while utilizing the modern conveniences of today.

We love our visitors and try to make our homes comfortable and beautiful for you to enjoy as your home away from home.

Lorrie purchased this house in 2004

Why Lorrie chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

We love the location! Two and a half hours from Seattle is close enough for a weekend visit and far away from the daily chores of everyday life..

What makes this house unique

When the long-time owner of this home wanted to sell it to us, we jumped and bought it without it ever being listed on the market. Some of the things that made us fall in love with this house were:

~ the awe-inspiring sunsets

~ sweeping ocean views

~ seaside beauty

~ a clean beach right out your door

~ large square footage making large parties a snap

~ additional lots for protected views

Now families also love our home for the gorgeous yet comfortable furnishings, beautiful and well-supplied kitchen, comfortable beds, and . . . the jaw-dropping open vista views.

Today your family can join our list of families who return year after year for their beach vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is the perfect place for a family reunion. The beautiful kitchen is furnished with everything and the huge table with plenty of chairs is great for sharing food. The beds were more than comfortable, even for my grandparents. And, the view really is spectacular.



I was concerned about a large group and one bathroom but it worked out with no problem at all. Just like the owner (who was very nice and helpful) said, we think we need more than one bathroom but not everyone needs to use it at once. One bathroom with 11 people was no big deal.



We are so grateful to have found a place that fits us all and welcomes big groups. My sister and her family already rented it for this summer too and we'll all be back next year.

Pacific Beach has one of the most beautiful WA beaches with the majestic Pacific Ocean and a tributary, Joe Creek. It is mesmerizing to watch the surf and salt water mix with the river. The razor clams in front of the house are phenomenal too! The town of Pacific Beach is quaint with some gift shops, restaurants, and the all-important 3 coffee shop stops. Our favorite is at the High Flyer Kite Shop on Main Street where they are $2! Try Scott's own invention, The Creation, and tell him the Flem's sent you. Then walk to Emily's Confections (the pink and white building) also on Main for fresh baked cinnamon rolls, raspberry turnovers, croissants, and more. Go twenty minutes south along the coast to see Ocean Shores where there all sorts of touristy attractions, more shopping, and restaurants. A drive out to the point is well worth it and a walk on the boulder strewn beach is fun for climbers and leisure walks. Head north instead to visit the gorgeous beaches in the Indian Reservation, the Olympic Rain Forest with ferns as big as people and a tree you can walk through, and, don't forget the Roosevelt Elk.

The kitchen is fully furnished with pots, iron skillets, baking dishes, crock pot, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, and dishwasher, There are dishes, glasses, mug, and silverware for apx 16.

Great location and well stocked.

  • 3 of 5

We had a family vacation and used this house as our gathering spot. The location couldn't have been any better. The kitchen was very well stocked with ample space for cooking and dining. It was great for what it was.

Concerns: it was advertised as sleeping 14. You couldn't sleep more than 10 by any stretch of the imagination. We had 12 staying here, including two young children in cots so were able to make it work.

The house was advertised as a 1 1/2 bath. A bath includes a toilet, and there was only one. Admittedly, it was stated in the depths of the property description that the 1/2 bath was only a sink, but a 1/2 bath includes two parts of a bathroom: this is not a 1/2 bath.

There was supposed to be a well stocked video library. There were no videos and the remote for the VCR was not present. Why state that there was? This wasn't a big issue since we weren't there to watch TV, but it would have been used at some point, if only to look at our pictures.

The large garbage can was at the curb and full when we arrived on Friday. Garbage pick-up was Tuesday. We eventually had to move the can back to the covered area of the house to keep the gulls out. It was inconvenient for our group to try to juggle our garbage for 3-4 days. I'm sure a resolution could be found in the future.

This was over-all a positive experience and the limitations would not prevent us from staying again. However, the property description should be accurate and expectations clear.

Space good for our large group but place is run down

  • 2 of 5

The space was fine and proximity to the beach was great. However the place is very run down and laundry room smells very musty and dank.

We were charged $100 for a crack on the refrigerator drawer that was there to begin with so make sure you note damage when you enter to owner so you don't get charged for them to make repairs! When I complained about the charge they didn't respond. We cleaned the place immaculately too. Grrr! I researched the price of a fridge drawer and found them to be under $50, so we were also charged double!

Charming & Authentic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house, very authentic and charming, with million dollar views from the second floor bedrooms. Pacific Beach is beautiful and the local community reminds me of Seaside, OR area in the mid-80's, before all the development took over. It's a one stop light community and is not commercial in any way, a welcome respite from our 'regular' world. Found lots of seashells on pristine beaches, enjoyed yummy treats from Emily's. We rode 'fat tire' electric bikes in the rain in Ocean Shores, played at the arcade and raced in go-karts. Fun little shops and loved all of the art work in the area. The glass studio in Moclips is cool. Visited the pottery shop in SeaBrook and had a fancy dinner out at Crest View. Really had a good time and am planning on making our next reservation now. Thanks for the hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thank you for an awesome review that will really help other guests with ideas on things to see and do at the beach. In fact,, I haven't gone into the glass studio for years, that's one thing I'll be taking care of right away! See you again soon!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and location! Everything was clean, nice and comfortable. Prior to booking I read in the reviews about having to wash your own towels and linens, with the suggestion of my sister, all 8 of us brought our own sleeping bags, pillows and towels. We slept on top of the beds and did not use the sheets, and used our own towels. With the check out time being 11:00a, we were not interested in getting out of bed in time to wash them all, that is one of the reasons we like to get away, (not having to do laundry)! It was all we could do to get our breakfast in, clean up and get out by 11:00a. We were thankful there was toilet paper there, but there were no paper towels. Maybe you could add paper towels to your list of things that we should bring with us. Everyone LOVED it, and we hope we can stay there again someday! Thank YOU!

A little bit funky, but so are we.

  • 4 of 5

Nine of us (5adults, 4 kids) stayed here for a couple nights last weekend. As soon as we arrived I quickly noticed one platter with some decorative knick-knacks including a sm. glass float on a low table. Kids being kids, I quickly parked it in the secretary for the duration of our visit. One bathroom was a surprise as the description under bathrooms clearly lists 1.5. Kind of misleading, but hey what are you going to do? Maybe we were to use the random sink in the upstairs hallway as our second toilet, but although we are rough around the edges kinda folk, we aren't "those" kind of people. The upstairs sink was handy for tooth brushing before bed. I would say that 1 toilet would be frustrating at times for a group any larger that ours. The kitchen was pretty well stocked, my only complaint being no coffee grinder. Luckily one of us packed pre-ground beans. The clam sink in the carport was handy. A worklight over the clam sink would be a nice improvement. The location of this rental is great, right in quiet Pac. Beach. Would we stay here again? Probably, yes.
