Bright, oceanfront cottage w/private beach access & hot tub - dog-friendly too!
For an authentic beach vacation studded with both nautical charm and modern amenities, this Rockaway Beach vacation rental is just the right fit for your next Oregon Coast getaway! This house is oceanfront and offers easy access to the beach and beautiful views. You'll love sitting in the private hot tub in the evenings while listening to the swirling tide pools and sipping on a glass of chardonnay.
This house has access to a private beach path that cuts through the dune grass and leads you to a beautiful sandy beach on a relatively quiet section of Rockaway. If you head north on this beach, you can walk for miles on a peaceful stretch of the shore that includes a small creek leading to the ocean - great for kids or dogs to play in as it is much warmer water than the ocean!
After a long day on the beach, the living room will offer a comfortable place to put your feet up. This room has a decorative fireplace along with cable TV and DVD player. The sofa even turns into a queen-sized bed for more sleeping options. You might decide to just enjoy the ocean views for awhile, or perhaps you'll take some time to catch up on emails using the provided WiFi.
When it's time for breakfast, the charming kitchen is fully equipped with new stainless steel appliances but otherwise features the original 1920's design. Baking croissants or cutting up fruit salad in this sunny space will certainly brighten your mornings! The dining area is right off the kitchen and features seating for eight with a table that has a leaf for expansion.
In addition, there is an expansive deck that faces out toward the ocean as well as a hot tub that provides some beautiful ocean views and a warm place to relax when the sun starts to set. There is an adjacent lot with a picnic table and a grassy area that is a great place where the kids and dogs can play. For staying fresh and clean, this home also provides a convenient washer and dryer.
The Rising Tide Oceanfront Cottage has three bedrooms, providing plenty of space for up to nine guests. You can even bring up to four dogs for a small nightly fee.
The first bedroom is off of the kitchen and has a queen bed. A second bedroom, also on the main floor, has a queen.
The loft room makes a perfect spot for the youngsters in your group, as it has a sectional sofa that turns into a queen bed and a twin daybed. This space also has cable TV and DVD player so you can have a cozy movie night. The loft also features the best views in the house with a great window facing the ocean. The entrance to the loft is through the second queen bedroom, so it is not a fully private bedroom, making it great for parents who want to be close to their kids at night.
This home can be rented by itself or if you need a little more room, you can add The Strand Oceanview Studio that sleeps four and is located directly behind the house.
Head south when you hit the beach and you will be on your way towards the many shops and cafes that make Rockaway Beach a popular tourist location regardless of the season, and along the way you will be treated to a view of the famous Twin Rocks. You can even take a pit stop about 18 blocks down for a beer or a bite at the oceanfront Sand Dollar.
You will love getting away from it all at this beachfrontNorthern Oregon Coast vacation rental.
The kids loved having the upstairs to themselves and we loved having easy access to the beach and the jacuzzi. You can see the ocean from both floors. The perfect spot between Manzanita and Tillamook. Well kept place with a nice washer and dryer. If they replace the window in the upper story that has mold between the panes of glass it would be perfect.
Right on a beautiful stretch of beach. Close to town. Clean and quiet plenty of space. We had a wonderful time with our 1 year old and German Shepherd we couldn’t have asked for a better place! Kitchen well stocked.
I like to book places to stay on Rockaway Beach and this House was amazing! My friend and I had a great time and the cottage was absolutely perfect. We loved the hot tub, easy path to the beach, and cozy house. We will definitely be back when we need another coastal get away!
Loved the ease of being beachfront & hottub
Cons: The home was in a bit of rough shape. Great location on the beach. Pretty good view but obstructed by bushes considerably. We arrived to a distinct body odor smell (may have been previous renters as it went away slowly over 24-48 hours) and there were no windows which opened facing the ocean. This would have made getting fresh air inside a bit easier. Also, the carpet (especially on the attic) was in rough shape. The attic smelled pretty musty and also had no windows which opened to the ocean side. The one bathroom wasn’t in bad shape but was really small.
Pros: great location and bbq area. House had all the amenities needed. Good for groups of 2-6.
The carpet is scheduled to be cleaned, and there are several windows in the cottage that open. Thank you!
We enjoyed our stay. Awesome view. Just a few minute walk to a beautiful lake where we caught lots of trout! The hot tub was perfect. We can’t wait to visit again in September. 👍🏻
We loved our stay in this charming cottage. Loved the proximity to the beach and the hot tub! Thank you for having it hot and ready to use on arrival. We appreciated that our dog was welcomed too. He had the most fun on our beach walks :)
Our 3rd year in a row of renting this little cottage and still love it!!
We rented here due to the great location and we have stayed once before. BEFORE you book or stay make sure to know the beds need updating. Perhaps bring an air mattress to add to the beds, they are old futon type mattresses. All of us have back pain after staying for 5 nights. Bring 3 prong adapters as the outlets are mainly 2 prong. DVD players are not Blu Ray. If you are coming for the beach, it is the perfect beach and location.
Everything was just perfect! The house was clean, cozy and cute. We were going to use the BBQ for dinner one night, we refilled the propane but something was wrong with the heating element on the grill and it would not stay lit. No big deal to us though, we cooked inside and enjoyed our meal just as much. Our family had a wonderful time and we will definitely be returning! Thank you for a wonderful, stress-free experience!!
We had a wonderful time would stay again,
This is a perfect beach house that is full of charm and character, has a great hot tub, open floor plan and even has it's own private path to the beach. It doesn't get much better than this place.
My husband, our dog and I treated ourselves to a week stay over the Christmas holiday. The house was just the right size and had all the cooking pots/pans and utensils one could need. I cooked steamer clams, stuffed oysters, crab. They have a regular coffee pot, toaster, and a toaster oven, full sized fridge, oven, and microwave. I appreciated the washer and dryer. I loved how close the beach was and just a gentle incline to get down, our old knees can't take stairs or steep inclines to get to the beach. Our dog was in heaven. My husband finished a 1000 piece puzzle. They have some movies, puzzles and few games. My husband and I were very relaxed when we left. Oh the hot tub was a nice bonus to soak our old bones after walking the beach.
Great beachfront location, good set up for kids upstairs
Pros: The location was amazing and the house was cozy and in good condition. The hottub maintained its temp well in the cold weather. Cons: The view of the ocean is not great because of some bushes (even though the house is literally right on the beach). Also the upstairs is not heated, so it's a bit chilly up there if the weather is cold.
We enjoyed being able to walk right out the door to a great sandy beach. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We are looking forward to coming back in summer time.
We enjoyed this Home and felt that the kitchen was probably one of the best appointed we’ve stayed in. We had everything we needed. The washer and dryer were great as we went home with clean laundry! The kids loved having their own spaces to play and relax!
The home and proximity to a beautiful stretch of Oregon Coastline combined for a great weekend.
Amazed at how clean this house was comparably to others we have stayed at. Hot tub was in fairly good condition. Short walk to beach. Parking is a bit challenging if you have a boat, but we managed. Would stay again!!
Could use some landscaping, can only see the beach standing on back porch or if upstairs in what I would call the kids area/loft...
Right on the beach. Beautiful setting. Well stocked with kitchen appliances and utensils. Good hot tub. Very relaxing.
My family and I stayed here to celebrate my fathers birthday and to watch the 2017 solar eclipse and had a wonderful time. The beach house was perfectly situated with private access to the beach and had great amenities for a summertime getaway including a BBQ equipped with propane, board games, and a hot tub for the chilly Oregon coast nights. This beach house was about a mile and a half from town which made for nice beach strolls but also made it secluded enough to be relaxing. We also enjoyed how dog friendly this space was, our pups really enjoyed running and playing on the beach.
Thank you for such a relaxing vacation!
The location was very close to the beach. We were out on the beach several times a day. Great location for kids and adults. Lots of sands and wide open to run and fly a kite
We were lucky enough to stay at this darling home for our first REAL family vacation, and it did not disappoint! We have four young children and a dog, and were so pleasantly surprised at how conducive the home was to a large family. Everything was clean and organized, and the decor was homey and cheerful. We really could not have been happier in this beautiful, ocean-front rental home (the beach is SO close and accessible!!) and we created some incredibly special memories here that will undoubtedly last a lifetime!
We stayed three nights and really loved this little place. The house is very charming and the decor fits perfectly in it's beach setting. The house was very clean when we arrived. There was plenty of clean dishes and you have pretty much everything you would need to prepare most meals in terms of cooking utensils (pots, pans, measuring cups, silverware, cutlery, etc.). This house, however, does not have a dishwasher, so if you plan on eating a lot of meals in the home and do not feel like doing a lot of dishes, I would bring paper plates and plastic cups.
This place does have a washer and dryer and was stocked with several pods so that we could do multiple loads of laundry (this was our last stop on a long trip).
The views from the house are pretty good. From the downstairs dining area and family room, you have partially obstructed views of the beach. There are several large bushes that obstruct the view. From upstairs, the view is better, but chances are you will not be spending much time upstairs. Regardless, there is a path that leads you directly to the beach in about 15 -20 steps, and the beach itself is outstanding, though windy and cold, especially in the afternoon.
The few critiques I would have of this house are as follows:
1) The walls are thin. The one bathroom is wedged right in between one of the bedrooms and the family room and you can hear a little bit more than you'd probably like to.
2) The water pressure in the shower is not great and the clawfoot tub/shower is a bit awkward to use (the shower curtains that wrap around the shower constantly invade your space while showering)
3) The door handles are old and take some wiggling to get them to latch
4) the carpet in the second bedroom and adjoining stairs and upstairs probably is ready to be replaced.
By all means, none of this stuff takes away from the charm and enjoyment this place brings. It definitely was a memorable place and one of our favorite stays on our tour of Oregon.
We are delighted to see this guest loved this home! The home is older, so it does have quirks like thin walls and old doors, but everything works as it should. Thanks!
We had a delightful stay at this house. The location was amazing! So close to the beach and a hot tub just steps away. The house is the perfect size--not to large but still gives you enough room. I am so glad we stayed here. I wish we could have stayed longer!
Our dogs and us had a great time at this beach house. Location is unbeatable- direct access to beach and a grassy yard.
The house was wonderful and the beach was 20 steps away and phenomenal.
We were there in April 2017, and so the beach and area was wonderfully un-crowded. Everyone was friendly in Rockaway Beach and surrounding towns. The cottage was lots big enough for the two of us and our 4 dogs, and we all had a great time running and playing on the expansive beach.
This is 2nd year I have rented this cottage for 1 week and I will be renting it again in 2018 for 1 week.
This place is as beautiful as it looks online. The house was perfect for the 9 guests we had stay for the weekend. The hot tub was hot and ready when we arrived and the beach could not be any closer. Waking up every morning and drinking your coffee while looking at the surf was the best part of this vacation. Close to the other coastal towns, making it easy to sightsee. Just perfect!
Loved this little house and the surroundings!
We will definitely come again!
Older home, but totally adequate for our needs. Kids loved it!
Thanx for the jacuzzi!
Nice and neat and clean!
I came to the coast with my family (two adults and a one and a half year old) with another couple and their toddler. There was plenty of space for all 6 of us in this gorgeous home. It was lovely being so close to the beach. The hot tub was the perfect end to each day! The house was clean, simple, and beautiful. We would definitely stay here again.
Really a comfortable clean place to stay. We walked the beach everyday and enjoyed the hot tub too. This is a really nice place to spend a few days - really nice!
This is a cute little place, perfect for two couples or a family. I love that the dogs were able to join us because beach dogs are happy dogs, for sure.
Has perfect beach location. Limited view from living room but you can't beat the access. Modern hot tub right off the beach. Our family loved the amenities. We had 7 guests, sufficient but with 1 bathroom it was a little tight. Very kid friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Renting through Vacasa could not have been easier.
All in all a good stay. Enjoyed the ocean views, hot tub, walking through the town and beautiful beach sauntering. There were a couple nights of our 5 night stay where we did have 9 adults at the home which was more chaotic and cramped then we had imagined. The house did sleep 9 however there was only one small bathroom and the living space was small. We couldn't spend a lot of time outside due to rain. It would have more comfortably held about 6 adults especially since one of the beds is in the living room. We ran out of some of the toiletries/propane with 9 people there for 2 nights.
Path right off of the deck to the beach- nice and close! Property was nice and clean with a nice view from inside. Rental instructions were clear and thorough. The layout is a little strange (you have to go through one bedroom to get to the additional sleeping area upstairs, and the people sleeping upstairs need to go through that same bedroom to get to the bathroom). Overall a very nice place.
While this is a great location, this cute little house needs some work. It is over-priced.
The Property Manager has addressed the plumbing and electrical, and the upstairs window is now working. A thorough property inspection will be performed in the near future to see what else needs maintenance works done.
The low tides on the beach at night were amazing. The whole area is really friendly wirh both people and dogs.
We loved our stay and will be back. Brought our two grand kids and their dog and everyone had a great time. Beautiful sunsets and beach walks.
Location is ideal. Quiet beach. Hot tub was great after dinner. We were there during heat wave. Upstairs gets really hot.
Such a darling house with terrific private beach access. Highly recommended for those who appreciate an older home with lots of charm and a rustic beachy vibe. I'd definitely book again for another relaxing week!
This was a great little cottage with direct access to the ocean. We had a great stay!
Our family loved how cozy the house was and the location to the beach was perfect. The beds were super comfortable and I loved that our fur babies could come with us. Having a washer and dryer on site was also a huge bonus. With a few touch ups and some landscaping maintenance this would be the perfect house for any family. We will keep this house in mind for our next adventure at the beach.
The house was fantastic. The inside was light and airy and very clean. We loved how close the house was to the ocean. I especially loved the red bench sitting at the top of the dune in the mornings or when the sun was going down.
Great little house. Yard was not taken care of so picture on vacasa is not what you get. Hot tub was fun. Easy access to the beach. Great location. Kids loved the upstairs. Wish they could maintain the bushes so we could have actually had a view. Need bigger fry pans so cooking didn't have to be in shifts. Mud rooms great for taking off wet sandy clothes.
Overall we loved the little house and would go back.
We weren't expecting to check-in until 4pm so was extremely pleased when we drove by and discovered the house was ready at 2:30pm. LOVE how quiet the location of the cottage is....absolute silence except for the sound of the ocean waves. Love the ocean front lot and private trail thru the dunes to the beach...very convenient for us and our dogs. Super cute interior and décor. Very comfortable beds......we really enjoyed our two night stay.
It was great to be right on the ocean. The hot tub was great during the cool evenings. It is a little over a mile to town, but the location was great if you don't mind walking, have a car or a bike.
We had a wonderful stay at the beach house and would highly recommend it to anyone. May book with family/friends next year. A thousand times better than staying in a hotel, tons of space, hot tub,access to the beach, full kitchen to cook in or grab a snack. Thanks for sharing your home with us!!
I love this house, the convenience to the beach is exceptional. I love the 2 mud rooms before you enter the house so that you can clean the sand off the kids, dogs. Stayed 3 nights and plan to extend that to 6 nights next year. We did not want to leave. The upstairs is a perfect hide away for the kids, very cozy.
One bathroom is not enough for 6 people.
We understand that one bathroom for a home that can sleep up to nine people can be tricky; we hope this home was otherwise satisfactory!
The house is very comfortable, bright and cheerful. The kitchen was well-equipped, has a nice big dining table and an good open floorplan set up. The beds were comfy, the bedding was the softest I've ever had and it was a very quiet area. Awesome beach acess and great view from the attic tv area. Its really nice to have two seperate tv areas for people to hang out, and the mudroom entries are especially handy for coming in from the beach even if there is rain/snow and dogs in tow. Would definitely stay here again.
Cute little place with great access to the lovely, wide beach at Rockaway! The other rentals on the property were empty when we were there, so it was nice and private. The house was exceptionally clean, but definitely needed a few repairs. It had all the kitchen utensils, towels, etc. we needed—just make sure to bring your own coffee/tea and cooking basics. The bedrooms were comfortable, but note that you need to walk through one to get to the upstairs (a perfect, relaxing space with a great view)—fine for our small group, but not much privacy if you have more people. The hot tub was a great feature, especially with blustery winter days!
This home is clean, cozy and close to the beach. It has lovely views and is a nice walk to town. Our family had a lovely sweet time and could focus on each other and the beach. I highly recommend this cottage!
Lovely, short path to the beach. Loved the deck and the hot tub. Very clean which is a must for me. Great little house.
Very cute beach house with 2 downstairs bedrooms and 1 upstairs "bedroom". You have your own access right down to the beach which is amazing. The kitchen is nicely equipped, so my wife and I made a few meals. Bring your own seasonings and cooking oil (unless you use veggie oil) though. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks Vacasa!
My husband and I stayed two nights at Rising Tide with our 3 dogs. The beach was perfect for them, wide, sandy and clean, with very few other people. The house had a perfect old cottage look and feel, but was very clean and well-maintained inside and out. I was trying to escape some work stress and could not have picked a better spot.
Very clean and fresh feel to it! The upstairs was a great hangout area and helped with breaking up the house for those who need space by themselves. Lastly the beds were super comfy and I loved the pillows! It's hard finding comfy pillows! Beautiful little corner lot and easy access to the beach right out the back door! Can't wait to come back!!!
This was a lovely cozy place to stay for our mini get-away for my family. It was a bit expensive . I would have loved to stay longer. The Hot tub on a cool night was great. Location on the beach...perfect!
This is an older beach cottage but very homey. This was an ideal location and very convenient for kids and our dog. Plenty of room for all of us. Lots of clean bath towels, washcloths and bedding. Beds were comfortable. If you want to do laundry, be sure to bring laundry soap. The washing machine and dryer were a lot nicer than what we have at home! The hot tub had sand in it but the water was clear and the kids loved it after spending time at the beach as it was a little chilly. The condition of the bbq, which altered our meal plans, was a disappointment. There is a small market about 5 miles away but for a big shopping trip, plan on going to Tillamook. Nice little downtown area to walk around. Low tide on the beach was amazing!
The beach was clean and private. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset while grilling salmon over a beach campfire. Would love to stay there again!
This cottage is right on the beach...a short walk to the ocean. Ocean views from cottage, as well. Hot tub was a great, especially after a long walk on the beach. Place was well-equipped and beds were comfortable. One bathroom was a bit of an inconvenience at times. We'd return again!
We were very pleased with our choice to stay at the ocean front cottage in rockaway beach. When we arrived the place exceeded our expectations. Was very clean and had all the required dishes etc. required for our stay. The place was very well maintained. The views from the eating area and attic were wonderful. The beach was larger than expected, had a great time flying kites, searching for shells, and just walking along the beach. The town had quite a few little shops to search through and everyone was very friendly. We would definitely recommend this place and would stay again ourselves.
had a wonderful time, loved the house and hot tub and the dogs just loved running on the beach. we are planning to come back in the fall as soon as we know our schedules.
We spent 3 awesome days here celebrating our kiddos' birthdays & couldn't have been more delighted with the property, location & amenities. The beds were the most comfortable of any other beach property we've ever rented & the cozy upstairs den was a great spot for our 4 & 6 year olds to play & relax. The shower/clawfoot tub made us feel right at home, as did the lovely bed linens. And the combination of privacy & right-out-the-back-door beach access are the total stars of the show.. This house is simply a wonderful place to stay. My partner & I can't wait to return with our dogs & kids. We're also pretty excited to come back just the two of us for a relaxing child free getaway.
So easy, relaxing and rejuvinating! Our vaca included myself with two children and my friend w her child - it accomodate us w space to spare. The house is set up well for continued conversations and views while cooking. The hot tub was the ideal balance between enough privacy from other houses but still visible from inside the house. The structure itself is a really sweet, well laid out, small home with great windows, views, and furnishings. Also woth mentioninv, the house was impeccably clean when we arrived as was the hot tub. We hope to visit again and soon!

Great place to stay! Very clean and so perfect for kids upstairs. Beach readily accessible. Great supply of cooking supplies to cook your own meals! Everything in good workable condition. Vacasa was very proficient and easy with rental details!
Thank you for this great review! We are so happy that you enjoyed the kid room upstairs, the kitchen supplies, and the location.
Perfect Vacation! The location of the house was perfect just steps from the beach. It was equipped with everything we needed and more! The kitchen was very well stocked and the living room was very inviting. We also loved the hot tub!
Thank you for making our vacation so memorable, we had a wonderful time!
This is the perfect beach house. It's set in a quiet neighborhood, right on the beach, and it has a hot tub. The kitchen was great, the beds were comfortable, and the linens new. Nothing melts away the stress like sitting in a hot tub on the beach under the stars!
We loved staying at this house! Perfect for my 4 kids, who loved the freedom to run up to the beach whenever they wanted to explore! Definitely an older home, but furnishings are all newer and in great condition.
This is a nice smaller house right on the beach. It's a great location and the beach is huge. Hot tub was a nice bonus as was the barbecue. Everything was in working order and very clean. Would definitely stay here again.
It was a magical weekend for our family! Small house but full of charm and character ... and steps away from the beach! We love it and can't wait to go back!
This was our first trip to Oregon and it was absolutely amazing. We arrived late in the evening and had no trouble finding the place. We walked in after a long drive and were super excited to see the surroundings and walk in to such a wonderfully decorated, clean property!! The kids instantly went exploring upstairs to see their area. We couldn't have asked for more. The "loft" area was perfect for our crew to watch their own movies before bed and just for hanging out. The kitchen had everything as far as dishes etc. Loved the ocean dÃ©cor and felt right at home. The view from the kitchen table every morning and dinner time was wonderful. We sat out reading on the front deck after our morning walks on the beach and then would take advantage of the hot tub in the evenings. We also had several camp fires on the beach at night. Such a treat. Would and have already recommended to several of our friends who are thinking of visiting Oregon next summer.
Great beach house! Small but very well laid out and open. The furnishings are brand new and ALL recognizably Ikea. The beds are very comfortable. We we're very happy with the rental and would come again.
This house had an AMAZING view of the ocean and was right next to the beach. It was nicely furnished and clean and so comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
The location is perfect and the house is exactly what you need to a relaxing beach getaway! We had a great time and will be back.
Very clean well furnished beachfront cabin with a nice hot tub to enjoy the sunsets. Pristine sugar sand beach was incredible and fun for the whole family to play, walk, run and swim. Easy hassle free check-in/out and mgmt company very quick and helpful with any questions or needs.
Thanks for your review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you were able to watch the incredible sunsets from the hot tub. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and had and were pleased with our services. We hope you'll visit again!
We enjoy staying at different places from B & B's to tree houses to yurts to hotels. And now we will add Vacasa to that list! The experience was so great I can't stop raving about it! The whole stay felt very comfortable thanks to the thoughtful amenities and hospitality of the Vacasa team. We can't wait to have another excuse to book another stay! This is our second Vacasa home in the last month! Thank you for thinking of everything and making each home feel so inviting!
