About the property

Cabin, Cottage, 1 Bedroom , Ocean view, Free wi-fi, private beach access

King 5 "Best Vacation Rental". Winner of only stand alone rental, placed 5th overall.

All other top 5 are multi units have over 100+ rentals so this is quite the honor for the Coast Inn.

"Moclips Coast Inn" loves social media :-) and is a one bedroom cottage, completely remodeled and very very clean. Owner managed and cleaned, you will see the pride in ownership, big difference over staying at a place that has a property managed company.

Cute and cozy cabin with three large old glass fishing floats built right into the wall. These add such charm, especially when the sun goes down. Sit on the deck and enjoy some wonderful sunsets over the ocean, after a long day playing on the beach. Coast Inn is a perfect romantic cabin for a couple, you can cook your own meal or hit one of the local restaurants, maybe do some gambling after dinner at Quinault Beach Casino, or my favorite is taking a walk on the beach and enjoying the sunset. Gas fireplace for ambiance . Tile and wood floors,(no stinky carpet) comfortable queen size bed, along with a top of the line, no bars sofa bed in living room, beach theme interior, with games, cards, and lots of movies to enjoy, along with premium movie channels, HBO-Showtime-Cinamax etc. with direct TV. Bonus MLB Baseball package in season! I will try and make your stay as comfortable as possible, if you need any extra's or special surprises/requests for your loved one before you arrive, let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate. Owner operated so your stay will show pride of ownership, I love to hear my guests say this is the cleanest place they have ever stayed.

Moclips is a place to relax and enjoy our beautiful Washington Ocean Beaches, unspoiled by tourist traps, but if you like that sort of thing its just a short drive to Ocean Shores where you will have plenty of 'tourist type' activities. (Bumper cars-horse back riding, moped rentals, gambling ect)

I will be more than happy to give you any local information of what you can do during your stay in Moclips, day trips, where to eat, services, local history.

Be aware of rentals that don't have any reviews, a lot of them choose not to accept reviews as we can't change them once written, so rental owners choices are to accept all or none. Take a look at the Coast Inn's reviews to read what other guests are saying about their stay. There will be no 'ewww" factors at "Moclips Coast Inn" :-)

About Joseph and Mary Hill

We are baby boomers. Raised in Tacoma, and married for 35+ years, we love the outdoors, and traveling to explore new area's. I personally keep my place fresh and clean so when I walk out after cleaning, my last thought is as I take one last look is "I would be happy to rent this place" I love to share Moclips with my guests but giving them a clean, comfortable place to call their home while they are out exploring

Joseph and Mary Hill purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Joseph and Mary Hill chose Moclips

I fell in love with Moclips over 20 years ago when we would visit friends who had a weekend place. We soon had to have our own 'piece of the pie' and bought our very first vacation home. Moclips Coast Inn used to be our weekend place until we purchased another, I then only used it as a guest cabin for family and friends, but now that I'm retired, we had it completely remodeled, and decided to put it up for nightly rentals, I have really enjoyed meeting so many people from all over the world, and sharing our little area of the North Beach.

The first time we visited Moclips 20 years ago we rented a cabin for $100 a night, by 2am both my husband and I left like bandits in the night because it was just too dirty for us. I told him I would never rent a place unseen again, so we bought a motor home where I knew I would have a clean place to lay my head. Shortly after, we noticed a place for sale and now are Moclips 'weekenders', we built a new home on another lot we own. I fell in love with Moclips and I know you will too. Its Washington's best kept secret.

You will find Moclips Coast Inn very clean and fresh, I pride myself on that fact. My goal is to hear my guests say 'this is the cleanest place I have ever stayed' I enjoy personalizing it for each of my guests

What makes this cottage unique

No where else have I been where I can walk a beach and most the time have it all to myself. Homes are closer to the Ocean than any other area on the Washington North Coast, Moclips is the first Privately owned beach front property on Washington's Coast. Anything North is either State Land or Native American.

Rich in history, colorful locals, unspoiled beaches, fantastic sunsets, great shelling, and clam digging are just some of the reasons Moclips is so special. You won't find any tourist traps here, only the beauty of nature.

Moclips beach house

Mary's cottage was clean, cute, cozy and charming!

We will definitely be back. If we forgot it, Mary had it for us to use.

She greeted us when we arrived and left a goodies basket for us on the table.

Wonderful time at the Cost Inn in Moclips

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a lovely two days at the Coast Inn in Moclips. The cabin was clean, spacious, and had tons of little touches that made it warm and welcoming. We were so busy confirming the Wi-Fi at check in that I didn't notice the keep sake that Mary left for us in time to thank her (so if you are reading this Mary - THANK YOU!) We wanted a quite, private, comfortable, cabin for our short ocean holiday and the Cost Inn was perfect for us.

Owner's Response: I enjoyed having you both, too bad it was just a short little visit. I try and keep an eye open at check out so I can thank you personally but all of a sudden you were gone, sorry I missed you. You were great guests and so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay as I try very hard to have the cleanest and coziest little cottage on the beach.:-) We hope you can return someday and stay longer...mary

Please do not make a request for your "well behaved" dogs, sadly my place is not pet friendly, I have many returning guests who only stay with us because they have allergies. When I get requests for dogs and have to refuse, I get docked by this site for refusing a booking. The answer will be "no I'm sorry" there are many pet friendly places on the beach for your fur babies, but Coast Inn is pet free. Thank you :-)

Extra charge for couples/friends using sofa bed linens. (2 or less guests) Check in time 4-8pm. No late night check in's unless prior approval.
