About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)

At 'Daybreak on Sunset' enjoy the beautiful panoramic views of the ocean while you are relaxing in our beachfront home anytime of the year. You are steps away from having sand in your toes and enjoying everything the beach has to offer. Bask in the scenery of the rolling waves, looking through our large windows or out on the wrap around oceanside deck.

Daybreak on Sunset is wonderful for a girls getaway, celebrating special occasions or just getting out of town to relax after a hard work week with the ones you love. There are no roads to cross, and just a few private steps down off the deck until you are walking on the beach.

Gorgeous views on an unspoiled quiet beach are ready for your enjoyment.

Daybreak on Sunset can comfortably sleep 1-6 people. Upstairs you will have a breathtaking view from our large master loft bedroom with a queen bed with a full bathroom. Downstairs there are two bedrooms and a full bathroom. One room has a queen size bed, while the other has a full size bed along with a twin bed.

About David Brate

Hi, I grew up in a small town about 80 miles west of Chicago. I graduated from Illinois State University in 1977 where I was a Student Advisor for 4 years. I relocated to Seattle in 1980 where I attended graduate school at the University of Washington. In the latter years of the 80's, my wife and I discovered the Pacific Beach/Moclips area and fell in love with it. The deserted beach and friendly residents drew us to the area. We have never looked back.

David Brate purchased this house in 2007

Why David Brate chose Moclips

We were the 1st to discover this beachfront oasis on Sunset Street and were lucky enough to see the potential that being so close to the ocean can bring. In the early 2000's we began our journey and started the planning of Daybreak On Sunset. In 2007 our dream was completed.

What makes this house unique

Our home is on the beach and unlike many other homes on the beaches of Washington, the ocean and waves are very close. There are many homes on the Washington coast that advertise of being on the beach, however you might have to walk a quarter mile to finally find the ocean. Our home is only steps away from the ocean. It is truly a gem.

A little information on our home: just read our reviews. We take pride in and appreciate what our guests have said.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, what a wonderful get away! Our family loved your home. Staying right on the beach could not get any better. We can't wait to come back.

Wonderful experience. The house was perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed watching eagles from the living room. Woke up to a snowy beach on our last morning which was a special treat.

Perfect in all aspects

  • 5 of 5

Feels like relaxation the second you walk in. So comfortable and roomy with an excellent view and deck. Nice size kitchen with all the needs. The book wth information is handy for all too. Anything we have forgotten or run out of is no problem with windjammer around the corner! Step off into the sand in seconds, pure awesomeness! Owners Dave and Dee are the nicest and only want visitors to enjoy 100%

Been here 4 times, never a regret!

I don't want to let the secret out!

  • 5 of 5

If the secret gets out it will be harder to book this house. What a great place to stay. Updated and super duper clean. The owners even called to check on us when a storm was coming thru to make sure we knew where the flashlight s we're. Great hosts!!! Better plan ahead now....I will be!!!!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Ocean Front Daybreak at Sunset home. It truly is ocean front and served as a quiet, beautiful place for a mid-December getaway. The home is just as depicted in photographs, except that it feels more spacious than described. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. And the beds/bedding were very comfortable.

David and Dee are excellent hosts and responded quickly to our requests. To experience the beauty of nature, weather as it so changes at the coast and relax in their home is the perfect way to spend a few wintry days. Of course, the truth be known, if we had a few more days to spend, we would have. Thank you, Dave and Dee.
