About the property

Romantic log cabin, designed especially with couples in mind, close to beach

Captain's Quarters is a beautiful couple's cabin that allows adult pets, one larger dog or 2 smaller (under 20# each) with the $15 pet fee. Please make sure to mention the size and number of pets when you make your reservation.

Unique and beautifully crafted, this cozy cabin is truly a gem, complete with a real captains bed tucked into the alcove, your own galley to take care of the midnight munchies or the long drawn-out breakfast. Captains Quarters is a stand-alone cabin that has all the amenities of a much larger cabin, but scaled down for the intimacy of a private hideaway.

It was designed specifically for couples and you will be delighted from the moment you walk in the door. We recently added an electric fireplace to add even more romance to the ambiance!

Our guests often comment that the cabin is much larger than it appears on the photos, and it is absolutely perfect for couples or even couples plus one. Just a few steps outside the door, slip into the hot tub and soak your cares away. The hot tub is shared by one other couples cabin. Your cabin gets the even hours on the clock, and the other one gets the odd hours. Of course, if no one is in the other cabin, the hot tub is all yours!

In addition to a very comfortable queen size built-in bed, we just purchased a new sofa that converts into a bed for an extra adult or possibly two small children. We will still list this as a cabin for couples, but if you're not opposed to sleeping in the same room, you could bring up to 2 small children and fit comfortably.

The dining table doubles as a game table and seats 4, and the galley is set up complete with fridge, stove top, microwave, coffee pot and toaster, along with everything you need for cooking. In the cabinets, you will find coffee and creamers, hot chocolate, and popcorn.

Whether you are ready to sink into the hot tub just steps from your door, throw a steak on the outdoor barbeque, pull up your lawn chairs to the fire pit and roast some marshmallows, or perhaps challenge someone to a game of horse shoes, you can do it here at Moss Landing Cabins.

Just a 5 minute walk to the ocean, we are close enough to hear the waves rolling up onto the beach from the hot tub when the weather is right. Whether your stay is for two days or a whole week, Captains Quarters has everything you need for a fabulously memorable trip to the beach!

Note: We have another cabin the exact same size as this one. If for some reason this cabin becomes unavailable, we reserve the right to switch your reservation to the other cabin if it is available (with no price difference, of course).

Pet owners: Dogs must not be allowed to disturb other guests with a lot of barking. All dogs bark occasionally and we understand that, but if your dog is a constant barker this isn't the best place to bring it.

We are GLBT friendly.

If your crew is a little larger, you may be better suited to our larger cabin, Ships Quarters, which is also on VRBO. (Just look for property 307966). And if your days are already taken for Captains Quarters, we have another cabin the same size, so try Storm Haven at VRBO 591242. Whether you are traveling solo or need a place for up to 4 guests, we have you covered!

About Sonja Moss

Hi, I am Sonja, and my husband, Tom, and I built Captains Quarters as the 3rd cabin at Moss Landing on a piece of property we bought in 2006 near the beach in Ocean Shores. Our first cabin, Ships Quarters, is also listed here on VRBO (Property 307966). The second cabin we built is Wind Dancer, and we live in that one.

Well, actually my husband did most of the building, but I got to furnish and decorate them! When I was 14, I found a picture of a little log cabin and taped it to the front of a notebook. I carried that picture with me for the next 20 years, always dreaming of the day I might be fortunate enough to have a cabin of my own. Then I married Tom. He and I have been building and remodeling things ever since we got married in 1998, but the possibility of building a log cabin was always there in the back of our minds. When we bought the property in Ocean Shores, we had an idea that we could build some type of vacation homes so people could enjoy the beauty of Ocean Shores, but nothing we could find really felt like the right thing. One day, we were talking about the property and what we might do, we realized that we could finally make our dream of log cabins come true. We HAD the technology! (Actually, Tom had the skills and I had the 'want to'!)

We are so fortunate to have had so many people stay at Ship's Quarters and Wind Dancer, and now we are able to offer our latest cabin that is geared for more intimate getaways, Captain's Quarters. Our guest book for our other cabins are full of heart-warming stories, and we're looking forward to reading all the stories of the folks who stay in Captain's Quarters as well. Moss Landing Cabins have been built with loving care, and we love sharing them with people who are looking for an enchanting, relaxing, and original getaway. Bon Voyage!

Sonja Moss purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Sonja Moss chose Ocean Shores

We never thought a place like Ocean Shores could exist. A friend told us about it and said she had bought a lot to build her own vacation home there. She said that there were still a few lots available for sale, so we took off for places unknown.....and we were delighted. We bought our lot the same day we arrived. We knew that it was a place we wanted to keep coming back to. Ocean Shores is a quaint little community with SO MUCH to do. People from all over Washington (and further) come to do clam digging, beach combing, storm watching, and kite sailing. The convention center sponsors many festivals each year, including the Beach Combers Festival and Razor Clam Festival in March, the Sand and Sawdust Festive and MANY others. For a small town, Ocean Shores has it going on! There are so many wonderful things to do. You can even go horseback riding on the beach.

We have found the people to be very open and friendly. Although we didn't live in Ocean Shores for the first few years we had the property, we've actually moved into one of the cabins and we make Ocean Shores our home now. So now our dream vacation is our life! We have made such good friends here, and living in a small beach town is EXACTLY where we want to be. Ocean Shores a unique place and a wonderful nature spot. You just have to be willing to share the roadway with the local deer population. Not a problem!

What makes this cabin unique

Moss Landing is a place to wind down and relax. Enjoy the silence of being at the end of the peninsula near the wildlife refuge. Feel the ocean breezes as you relax in the hot tub. The solitude is peaceful and renews the soul. Nature is close and palpable. Storms occasionally come screaming in, but you are always safe, warm, and dry in our rustic, cozy, elegant cabins. There is as much or as little solitude as you want. You can enjoy the hot tub, barbeque your favorite foods, walk down to the beach, take some beach photos, kick back and watch a movie, cook a gourmet meal. If ever a cabin could be a destination resort, this is it. This place was created for YOU. And we are really looking forward to meeting you!

The bed is a luxurious queen-size Captains Bed, hand-crafted and set into somewhat of an alcove which gives the illusion of quarters in a real ship.

Our guests who have stayed here commented that the cabins was much bigger than it looked in the photos, and they were delighted with the ambiance.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great find for us. We have stayed in many different places in the Ocean Shores area, but these cabins were by far the best. They exceeded our expectations. They have thought about all the little things that make a vacation stay memorable.

Moss Landing Cabins is located at the southern end of Ocean Shores by the jetty. The beach is only about a 5-minute walk from our cabins and there are two beach accesses which make it easy to take a walk from one to the other and circle back to the cabins for a nice hike of approximately a mile.

Our cabins have several amenities to make your stay memorable in Ocean Shores. We have a nice fire pit, an outdoor barbeque, and have recently added a horse shoe pit. Each cabin has its own hot tub, and the entire yard is now under lawn, so the sand can just stay on the beach instead of in your cabin!

As your hosts, Tom and I live onsite and will meet you when you arrive, give you your keys, and show you around. We also welcome out guests to Moss Landing with a nice bottle of wine. You can choose between a nice red blend, a white reisling, or non-alcoholic sparkling cider.
