About Patti

We moved to the beach 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 us richer.

Patti purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Patti chose Moclips

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, visit Seabrook -3 miles south, or 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.

loved the beach and this wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place! The location right on the beach could not have been any better for nice beach walks and ocean viewing, and the windows in the living room and bedroom meant we could easily see the ocean when inside too. The kitchen was well equipped, and had everything we needed. The property layout is conducive to relaxing...the hot tub outside, the covered patio area (= staying dry while watching the rain), the nice garden. very comfortable inside and out! We had some beautiful sunshine and some cozy rainy time...perfect combo. We were given privacy, while also getting an informative welcome note and prior communications so we knew we could easily ask any questions as needed. Patti and Jim have done a wonderful job setting up this lovely spot. Moclips also is laid back, and not over-developed. We hope to return!

It was perfect! We loved being able to walk right down the trail to the beach. Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! Can’t say enough about our experience. It is far enough away from town for some peace and quiet. And close enough to Ocean shores to go experience some shoping and the Kite festival.

Can’t wait to go back!

Thank you Patti

Paradise ON the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at five star hotels that could learn from these folks! The place feels homey and clean and has everything you could ask for, inluding a well maintained footpath that has your toes in the sand minutes within arrival. Beautifully landscaped, bbq, hot tub, fireplace, and the touches like salt and pepper, cards and kites-the only thing wrong with the beach bum is it doesn't belong to me!! Will definitely be back😍?
