When you look down from our bluff through wind-gnarled Spruces to the broad sandy beach below, you will know you have chosen someplace special in this quiet corner of the majestic Washington coastline. Built in 2003, Ocean Cliff offers its discriminating guests deluxe accommodations unsurpassed in the North Beach area.

The three-bedroom upstairs Family Unit sleeps eight and features a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, a guest bedroom with two twins, a bunk room and a leather queen sofa bed. Its two decks overlook a breathtaking view of the majestic Pacific Ocean.

The two-bedroom downstairs Cliffside Unit features a patio and direct access to our beautifully landscaped yard overlooking the beach. It sleeps six with a king size bed in the master bedroom, two twins in the guest bedroom and a leather queen sofa bed.

Both units are over 1300 square feet and have gas fireplaces, tile and marble throughout, beautiful fully-equipped kitchens, deluxe bathrooms and spacious master bedrooms with ocean views. Off the main entry is a utility room and mud room with a large shower accessible to both units. Our sunken firepit offers the ideal location for campfires and s'mores, and the one-acre private forest is perfect for exploration.

About Mark

I am a Presbyterian pastor. Our family discovered this property in 2001 and fell in love with its rugged, wooded beauty and the expansive beach. The sound is mesmerizing. We built our home primarily as our getaway but we 'share' it with what we hope will be a growing list of return guests who find it to be as unique and special as we do. John Wayne once tried to buy this property. If it's good enough for the 'Duke''ll love it.

Mark purchased this house in 2003

Why Mark chose Olympic Peninsula

We looked up and down the coast but couldn't find anything that provided the privacy and beauty that matched Moclips. The forest, the elevation, the vast, unspoiled and sparsely populated beaches made this 'our' place.

Another Fine Time Above the Beach

  • 5 of 5

For the fourth time in a row, some friends and I have spent a few days at the end of July at Ocean Cliff. We continue to return because it's a very roomy, light-lit, and comfortable house to spend time in. The access to the beach is a big plus, too. Even though this time the beach was often fogged or "misted" in, we enjoyed walking it several times; the fact that the tide was frequently way out made our walks even more enjoyable. And the house's being equipped with two dishwashers helped us to keep the clean dishes coming when we needed them. None of us had any complaints about the accommodations, the property, or use of its facilities. We're glad we'll be coming back to Ocean Cliff next summer as well.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don't do this place justice. The views from the house are stunning. The interior is immaculately clean and friendly. We took the short walk to the beach, sat and enjoyed the views from the upstairs patio and backyard, and grilled s'mores at the backyard fire pit. Beautiful vacation!

Good house Great location

  • 5 of 5

A group of us enjoyed a weekend trip to Moclips to celebrate a friend. We rented the whole house which meant we had two kitchens and plenty of bathrooms for everyone. There were 14 in our group which meant that two people were sleeping on the leather couches in the living areas on each floor. There was much less privacy for those four people than for others who were able to score bedrooms but it worked out ok. The fire pit was awesome and the beach is a short walk away and is truly the selling point for the place. If you are looking to spend a day outside (regardless of weather) playing games, going for walks and enjoying the expansive, flat, sandy beach, this is a great location. The house was clean and had the basic kitchen tools we needed. Mark was very responsive during the booking phase and afterwards.

Secluded and peaceful with awesome sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable accommodations, serene atmosphere, delightful family time. This was our third year to rent Ocean Cliff for our family weekend. It was the best of times for Grandparents, kids, and grandkids from breakfast at the big table to roasting hot dogs and s'mores in the outdoor firepit. Memories have been made that will be cherished for a lifetime.

The house sets on a cliff with a wonderful view and nice backyard fireplace.

  • 4 of 5

I liked the location of the home and the view . The fire pit was a plus for us. Bring your own wood. The photos were a bit deceiving I thought that there were stairs from the residence to the beach, those stairs shown are not on the premises. It is a quick trip by car to the beach and also nice to be so close to a convenient store. The house was nice . I found the king beds to be very comfortable quality mattress. The bunk beds are really meant for a child. The crosses on the walls were a lovely touch. The showers were awesome! Now I did not find the place spotless . First thing I noticed was the dirty oven downstairs and crumbs upstairs. They should have throw rugs inside the doors . I felt like they could have used a few more blankets to make up the beds. With nice blankets only $12.00 at Costco a few would have been nice. I think they could for a little money give it a bit more character. Nice home, nice location just missing the warmth.
