The feel here on the peninsula is very "beachy", friendly and laid back.  Our warm and sunny lawn is very large (30 x 60 approx.), mostly grass and sand, and includes a shared huge patio, all at your disposal.  Loads of parking in driveway next to lawn, on the lawn next to your campsite, or on parking strip at the road.  We're on a dead-end street in a very quiet neighborhood with no full-time neighbors beyond us.  

We are 2 miles by road to one of the most beautiful beach areas on the Long Beach Peninsula.  It's only that far because we are very secluded.  As the crow flies we are less than a mile.  Listening to the ocean as you fall asleep is a dream.  Maybe takes 4 minutes; easy to bike.  We are 3/4 of a mile by road to the Port of Peninsula; however, the crow takes 1/2 mile.  Groceries, art galleries, pub, coffee shop (with pastries and ice cream), restaurant, food trucks, old-timey mercantile store/hardware, Medical clinic/Pharmacy, Eagles Local, etc., all on the way to the beach.

A few miles south is the tourist area of Long Beach proper.  Many shops, restaurants, art studios, museums, carnival rides (in season), arcade, go-carts, outrageous bakeries, general services, light houses, hiking trails, etc., are located all along the Peninsula.  There are many lakes here and the kayaking/canoeing opportunities abound.  There are so many places to explore on the peninsula, I couldn't begin to list them all here.  Every summer weekend there's something cool going on.  From the International Kite Festival, Blues Festival, Jazz and Oysters, clam digs, our beautiful beaches; you will not be bored.  Just 40 miles south is Oregon and the town of Astoria.  The options never end!

The Pacific Coast Highway.  From all, but the Boyston St. (downtown) beach approach (and there are several), you may access and drive onto the beach.  It's very special to travel down the beach watching the sunset or finding your special spot to camp for the day, fly a kite, and/or build a fire.  It's magical.  Rules of the road apply as this is a highway proper. 

We will only host one group (message me for groups over 6) or two small groups at a time.  If you have special circumstances or particular needs for your group, just message me before requesting dates and we'll get our heads together to see how we may accommodate you.

We are home-bodies, very laid back and 420 friendly.  I am a stained-glass mosaic artist and my husband is a builder/craftsman.  Our MO is to work a bit outside during the day and come in at night and rest sometimes staring into the big glowing box of light (TV), listening to a story, or doing crafts.  We are open to any questions or needs anytime.  Come and go as you please and make yourselves at home.  We'd love to meet you.  Peace!  

We offer stained-glass-mosaic classes; please inquire and schedule with us if interested

This place truly is a perfect little get-a-way from the hustle and bustle of a bigger city. Long Beach, WA might just be my new favorite spot in the Northwest. It has the charm and character of a small town, yet still has the amenities you may need when you go into town (restaurants, grocery stores, antique shops, etc).

Bonnie and Jeff’s property is slightly north of Long Beach, in the Ocean Park neighborhood. It’s a peaceful, nostalgic area – perfect for a relaxing camping trip. Bonnie and Jeff greeted us (me, my boyfriend, and my dog) with smiles and hugs, showed us around their property, gave us advice on where to visit in the area, and more. I loved getting to chat with them and hearing about how they ended up out on the coast. They even have a converted “peace train” (bus) that they’ve taken around the country, which I especially loved hearing about (since this is one of my life goals)! Jeff built both their main home and the little cabin on their property, which are both beautiful backdrops to the campsite on the lawn.

We tent camped on the front yard as well as in their little cabin. They have a fire pit in their yard for little camp fires on cold nights, an outdoor shower around back for bathing in the warmer months, and the little cabin has a compostable toilet for doing your business. I’d highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for a place to stay on the Washington coast!

What a lovely, albeit short stay at the Beach Get-a-way. Bonnie greeted us at check-in and provided kindling & wood for a campfire, and opened their home for restroom use whenever needed. It was great to connect off and on, but also have time in the evening to enjoy some peace and quiet around the campfire. The location was secluded and cozy, yet close enough for convenience if desired. We were touched by our hosts' generosity and kindness. We would definitely recommend this place for a peaceful stay close to the beach; we hope to be back!

Bonnie and Jeff were extremely kind and welcoming. I felt very safe and comfortable at their beautiful artsy home. It was about 3 minute drive from the beach. I really enjoyed my stay!

Bonnie and her husband were excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful. The site was lovely and comfortable with a table and excellent fire pit and wood. The shower was great and all was as advertised. We were awakened with birdsong and saw an owl. Very close to the community of Ocean Park and close to the Leadbetter peninsula. A really nice two nights.

Bonnie is a warm, welcoming host! The location is so peaceful yet minutes away from Long Beach. Her home is one of a kind with her beautiful mosaic artwork displayed everywhere! I appreciated having access to the bathroom and enjoyed hanging out and chatting with Bonnie!

I had a wonderful time at Bonnie and Jeff’s amazing spot! They really have created a neat space that is warm, funky, welcoming, and safe. Both made sure I felt welcomed and acquainted with the property, but also left me to my privacy. I would highly recommend staying in their Ocean Park haven! Thanks again!

Bonnie is a very hospitable, sweet soul. We appreciate her welcoming nature and willingness to share her space with us. She gave us the chance to tent camp in relatively close proximity to the beach, while still having the convenience of the amenities we are used to.
