228 - Frank and Pat's Place

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cabin / bungalow. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 0.75 bathroom. No pets allowed.

Clinton, WA 98236 United States

If you want fantastic sunsets, rest, relaxation, and the restorative call of the Salish Sea, come to Frank and Pat's Place, right on Puget Sound at the old 1905 resort of Maxwelton Beach.

This is a true Pan-Abode log cabin, each log is notched into the next without using nails – a unique getaway made of old growth yellow cedar without a trace of drywall to be found. The walls carry the patina of much laughter, storytelling, shared meals and wicked board games played into the dark of night.

There are 3 bedrooms (2 queens, 1 full) with special properties that induce the kind of sleep that only a beach front cabin can provide. The bathroom with shower stall completes your beach comfort. Remember, as a cabin built in 1959 with its 60 year old custom built kitchen picnic table and benches, Frank and Pat's Place has very casual beachy and rustic ambiance and finish. If that’s for you, you’ve come to the right place!

The gathering spot of Frank and Pat's Place is the open great room concept of the living room with the free standing wood stove, adjoining kitchen and eating area, with spectacular beach scape and Olympic Mountain views from all windows. Included are AM/FM CD player with Ipod docking station, TV (sorry, no cable here) with DVD player, books and board games, oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and just a few steps outside your Dutch door are horseshoe pits, a pickle ball court, and propane BBQ.

The views from the wrap-around deck are stunning, western and expansive. Frank and Pat's Place is on no-bank beach front with miles of sandy beach front available for walking, and when the tide is out, hours and miles of beach walking and play abound.

This is a nature lover's paradise - Orca's, gray's and pilot whales cruise the water ways. There are frequently bald eagles on the pilings in the mornings, ospreys and king fishers diving for meals, and the sounds of hummingbirds, gulls, killdeer and great blue herons.

Note that Frank and Pat's Place is the perfect spot for basing day kayaking expeditions or bicycle trips through the rural back roads of South Whidbey Island. Day trips are a beautiful drive away to historic Langley, Coupeville, Fort Casey, Fort Ebey, and Deception Pass State Parks.

Whether you're looking for a safe and delightful family location to play, or a private adult getaway to kick back, life on the beach at Frank and Pat's Place will fulfill your dreams and exceed expectations. You'll find it hard to leave and will know you've truly been on vacation from your daily life.

    a guest from Arlington, WA recommends this vacation rental

    I stayed with family for 2 nights for my brothers wedding. I appreciated that the owners worked with me last minute, something I noticed when we got to the cabin it was SUPER hot inside. It was a bit weird to stay with family because there were no doors in the rooms just curtains. The rooms were pretty dark not enough lighting, especially in the restroom. No cable so be sure to bring your own DVDs. Also not to much privacy, the owners are like next to you and behind the cabin and were constantly outside. Nice people dont get me wrong but when you pay for some getaway you want to GET AWAY.The Positives were the location, beautiful scenery right in your yard! The beds were pretty comfortable, you have utensils to use if you need to cook that was nice to have. Pit fire off the beach sweet! We were able to BBQ there and it was nice.

      Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay on Whidbey Island. Glad to hear the kitchen had everything you needed and that you were able to have a BBQ on the beach.

    Susan F recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Frank and Pats cabin for 9 days. The sunsets were so beautiful. The location is great. The cabin was clean and kitchen had all we needed. In the main bedroom, the mattress was too hard. And the management only supplies a few rolls a toilet paper, which I thought was kind lame for a nine day stay.

    • Manager Responded on 8/15/2016

      Thank you for your comments. We're so glad that you enjoyed the sunsets, the location, and the amenities provided. Future renters should note that we only provide a starter supply of supplies such as toilet paper, and those staying longer will need to purchase their own additional supplies as needed (our starter supplies include toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, hand soap, and laundry detergent). Thank you for your review!

    Vikram S from Santa Clara, CA recommends this vacation rental

    It was a really nice place at a grat location right next to the beach with an amazing view. The neighbors were extremely friendly.

    The only issue was very spotty cellular connection - A wifi would be helpful in finding nearby places.

    • Manager Responded on 7/19/2016

      We're glad you enjoyed the house! At this point, the owners have purposefully decided to not have WiFi at the house so that guests can enjoy an "escape" from that kind of technology and other distractions. Many guests have enjoyed this aspect of the property. However, it is good for potential guests to understand that, for now, this property does not offer WiFi. Thank you for your helpful comments, we appreciate your review!

    a guest from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    This our second summer staying at Frank and Pat's Place and our fourth summer at Maxwelton beach. Maxwelton beach is one of the best beaches on Wihdbey Island. The beach at low tide exposes thousands of acres of sand on a low slope and tide pools galore. Our kids barely even notice the lack of the internet and spent hours exploring outside and finding sea life. A pod of porpoises swam by every afternoon. The family built a massive sand castle with a village around it then fought the tide with complex diking system to try to hold back the tide. Even though the effort was fruitless, the time spent with the family was priceless. I would highly recommend Frank and Pats Place for any family adventure destination.

    Comfortable beach cabin which is ageing well. The location and affordability are the primary attractions. Where else could you stay beach side for the price and have access to 2 miles of virgin Pacific Coast beach with a view of the Olympics and terrific sunsets. And then there is the local wines available. Absolutely wonderful. Unbeatable combination!

    Ian H from Chicago, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The cabin was hand built in the 1950's by the grandfather and has been well maintained. The scenery was beautiful as the beachfront was W-NW facing. Amenities include microwave, electric stove, blender, and all other basic household items. The place was very clean. The pickle ball court saw some use and we had an absolutely wonderful stay. My family is considering returning in the near future.

    Marie T from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time except for fact that there was a power failure cutting our stay short by one night. We had made reservations/paid for four nights (7/2 thru 7/6), but on Sunday 7/5 power went out at 6 PM, so without power and water, and given the high temperatures, we returned to our home in Seattle. Is it possible to get a refund for the last night, or a future credit on a subsequent visit?

    • Manager Responded on 7/9/2015

      Thank you for your review! We are so sorry about the power outage. I will contact the owner and you regarding the situation. Very sorry to hear that happened. Thanks again!

    Megan D from Portland, Oregon recommends this vacation rental

    we had a great time here. Yeah, it was pricey with the hidden fees. But the location is amazing - we had one neighbor (very helpful), and the occasional person walking down the beach, but for the most part, we had the area to ourselves. the only thing we could have used was a cable to allow us to plug an iPhone into the stereo system. It has a usb port, but the stereo didn't recognize the phone when it was plugged in to that port.

    Bonnie C from Redmond, WA recommends this vacation rental

    You can't beat the location and view, but a very rustic cabin. The bedrooms are very small and dark, but have very comfortable beds with nice linens. The cabin is cold in the morning, but the wood stove heats well once it gets going. Plenty of split, dry wood is provided. The portable heaters are not very effective. Very nice gas barbeque. We loved playing Pickle Ball and having a fire in the fire pit out near the beach. Basic supplies a little short, but the owner and property management company were very responsive to our needs. Kitchen cooking utensils were adequate and in good condition. We had 4 adults and one 6 year old. I would like to suggest that the kitchen faucet be replaced as it keeps shutting itself off. No washer/dryer or Wifi would deter us from long-term stays, however, the reasonable price will entice us back for shorter ones.

    Laurie F from Missoula, Montana recommends this vacation rental

    We had an excellent time at the cabin & the beach was great. Our first night had porpoises riding the waves at sunset. We had considered that the Sound might not provide as good beach combing, but this is not the case. After two days, my children had collected several buckets of shells, sand dollars, and crabs. We had a tearful moment of all that must remain. The sea is gentle; to the right is a kids playground, to the left -magic: Several miles of beach, tidal pools, and seals barking. If posh is your style this is not for you. If you desire a family cabin built by a fireman in the 50 's -I can give no higher star. We loved this place and if it remains undiscovered -we shall return.
