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 it richer.

Patti purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Patti chose Olympic Peninsula

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.

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!

Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beach Bum Inn. The location couldn't have been any better - literally steps from the beach - and the weather cooperated beautifully. The kitchen had the plates, utensils, and cookware that we needed to prepare our meals, and the bedroom was restful and carefully decorated for our stay. The bathroom is large, and we had more than enough towels. We appreciated the warm welcome to our little mutt as well. Thank you so much for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

The most relaxing time in a most relaxing cottage overlooking the ocean with a maintained path to the shore of the Pacific. The pups enjoyed long walks on the beach, greeting new friends, and visiting family staying 1/4 mile away. Hot tub was a plus! Jim and Patti are awesome owners. Landscape was charming. Bedroom has two windows - one opening to the sound of the ocean, the other bringing the coastal breeze. We have plans to return!

Quaint and peaceful romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in August and wished we had stayed all week! This was a Birthday celebration and it was lovely. If you are looking for a private and romantic time this is it. Essentials, cookware, utensils are stocked in kitchen as well as towels and soap/shampo in the bathroom. We grilled on the Bar b Q each night. The cottage is very clean and the location it fabulous. The cottage is right on the beach and has a very secluded hot tub on the covered patio. The beach is private so there are no cars allowed to drive in it. We fixed all our own meals which saved money. The owners are upstairs but honestly we never saw or heard them ever. The only time we even saw them was when they said hello and passed them in our car. They were very nice and let us have all the privacy we needed.

My husband and I walked the path through the dunes to the beach and enjoyed cocktails on the patio both evenings. The cottage has great views from all the rooms. The yard is very pretty in the Summer, full of blooming flowers everywhere and is secluded and private.

We used the hot tub both nights after dark. The Queen bed is comfortable and we both slept well falling asleep to the sound of the Ocean waves.

One thing to say is if you are bringing food for meals the fridge is compact and it has a rather small freezer. Next time we will only take food and condiments for the first day and restock daily. There is a small grocery store that is very close just south on Hyw 109 for supplies.

Bring a cooler with ice for beverages!

We will be back to watch the Winter storms and fire up that stove fireplace that we didn't need this Summer!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you two here. When I send out directions I always ask if you need more frig/freezer space. There is a full size frig/freezer right through the garage door which is left unlocked if requested. I wish we had known you needed it! Next time let me know. Looking forward to having you here again. You were the perfect guests. You will love a good winter storm.

The ocean is footsteps away!

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I decided to stay here for a few days to relax and enjoy the small town environment. It was just what we needed!! It was clean and plenty of room for all of us. We played games and of course enjoyed the hot tub at night. The sunsets were amazing and having beautiful sunny weather didn't hurt. Beach combing was fun as always and many sand dollars were found. The owners were available if needed and responded very quickly, but also gave us our privacy to enjoy their little oasis on the beach. We would love to go back and spend more time and get our toes in the sand!
