Auntie's House 620 N Pacific Ave, Rockaway Beach, OR 97136

This vintage-style, pet-friendly, two-bedroom Rockaway Beach vacation rental is light and airy, with lovely ocean views, a thoughtful, mid-century influenced interior, and a well-stocked full kitchen. You'll be surrounded by shiny hardwood floors and large picture windows at this beautiful Oregon Coast retreat!

Once you climb the outside stairs to the front door of this Rockaway Beach cottage, you'll be rewarded with a cute and oceanview sun room—the perfect spot for an afternoon glass of wine or a quiet morning of reading (there's even a whole shelf full of books if you forget yours at home). From here, step into the living room to enjoy the wall-mounted flatscreen TV with cable. Spend the evenings watching DVDs or chatting about the day's adventures.

A separate dining area has spots for everyone, with a cool retro table awaiting your feasts. And in the full kitchen, you'll find everything you'll need for preparing vacation meals—even a dishwasher for easier clean-up. In addition, there's a coffee grinder for freshly-ground beans in the morning, a toaster, a blender, and a microwave. Whether you heat up leftovers or make a home-cooked meal, this Rockaway Beach getaway has got you covered.

The two bedrooms have a queen bed and two twin beds. Both rooms have accessories like dressers, reading lamps, and bed side tables, as well as colorful, comfortable bedding that both adults and kids will appreciate. This home will sleep up to six guests and two dogs with a small nightly fee.

Other amenities include board games, a gas grill, and a washer and dryer! There's no need to worry about getting your pants wet in the surf, you can just dry them when you get home. Another great benefit to a stay here, is that the owner lives next door and can be contacted if you need anything during your stay.

From here, beach access is just across Pacific Street. This location is also right by Lake Lytle (stocked March—May with cutthroat and rainbow trout) and just a few blocks from Rockaway Beach's many restaurants and shops. Walk down to Ricks Roadhouse in about 15 minutes for burgers and halibut fish and chips. Over the summer, there are also many annual events like the old fashioned 4th of July Parade, the Kite Festival in May, and Art Fair in August and from this Rockaway beach cottage, you'll be right near all the festivities.

Rockaway Beach is also an easy drive to other North Oregon Coast destinations like Cannon Beach (35 minutes), Manzanita (20 minutes), and Tillamook (25 minutes). Of course, you may choose to keep your car parked and spend all of your time right in Rockaway Beach, walking along the shore to Twin Rocks, flying kites, and enjoying the view from your cozy, west-facing sun room.

This Oregon Coast vacation rental offers great amenities and a wonderful location west of Highway 101 at a great price. Bring the family and the dogs for a Rockaway Beach retreat everyone will enjoy!

    Great location 1 block from the beach (walkable). My dog loves running on the beach. I liked having coffee in the morning from the coffe stand 2 blocks opposite of the beach. The lady there was really fun to talk to and gave great tips on places to see and hike.

    I love to cook and the home had plenty pots and pans to use.

    Great place to stay for a quick weekend trip.

    This was our first time using HomeAway.com and Vacasa. We will definitely be using this service again. Since our stay was over Christmas, they even left us a roasting pan and baster! We were extremely happy with Auntie's house for our stay on the Oregon coast. It was a nice deal for the price and a comfortable place to bring our dogs. Thanks for such a great experience!

    I stayed at this home in May 2016 and glad it was available for this trip with my parents. The home is perfect for a group of 4 or 5 people, very close to the beach. I didn't realize it, but on clear nights you can see the milky way from the beach and a lot of constellations! This is definitely a very convenient and wonderful home to stay at.

    My kids and I really liked the partial ocean view and you're able to hear the waves with the windows open. Cute and charming for the most part. Yard wasn't groomed and most of the furnishings are cheap and the bathroom leaves something to be desired..but overall very functional and good location. Good value for the money.

    Auntie's House is a charming, clean and cosy space to spend a few days. Everything we needed was provided and it is only half a block to the beach. Even though it rained a lot the house was a great place to spend time together, play cards and watch the weather.

    I'm sure it annoys the home owner at least as much as it bothered me, but there's a huge building directly across the street from Aunties house pretty much completely blocking the ocean view. Super quick walk to the sand though through the parking lot of said building. Overall, Aunties house was a great place to sleep and weather the torretial weather we had while we were there. The view probably would've bothered me less if we hadn't been stuck inside so much.

    Auntie's House is in a great location...steps from the beach (not 'ocean front' but darn close). It's quiet and homey. Rockaway beach itself is A LOT less crowded than other more touristy beaches, which is a plus! The little shops/eats up the main street are quaint and friendly. Small town effect. :)

    We love the Oregon coast and had a wonderful time at Auntie's House. The beach is right around the corner, so convenient. It was really nice to have the space with our two children with plenty of room for the whole family. It's too bad there isn't really a yard but there's not much to complain about with miles of beach in front of you. Thank you!

    We had a fantastic time at Auntie's House in Rockaway Beach. It was the perfect spot for a getaway weekend with our toddler and dog. We especially loved what an easy walk it was to the beach, how quiet the beach was (no crowds like Cannon Beach or Seaside!), spending time relaxing in the sun room with the ocean view, how clean the property was, and all the little amenities. The water pressure in the shower was perfect. It was nice that there were good quality towels (and plenty of them!). We appreciated that there was plenty of shampoo, conditioner, etc. Loved that there were extra blankets so you could bring one out to the sun room. Appreciated the full length mirror in the bedroom and the fan for white noise while sleeping. It was just really nice to have everything we needed to settle right in. The queen bed was alright, not amazing, but not terrible either. Would have been great to have a higher quality pillow, but really we could have just brought our own. The only two big things we could have really used were a strainer for making pasta and darker curtains in the bedrooms. Sadly, all of us were up with the sun, including our toddler. Oh, and it was a really great place for a toddler. We brought outlet covers, but other than that, it was really safe and nothing breakable, at least that he seemed interested in or that we couldn't just make sure was up high. Thanks so much for a wonderful spot on the coast to stay!

    A cute place. Basic amenities and clean. Partial views of ocean when sitting in the coolest location of the house--front fore`room, with a nice futon couch to sit on and enjoy a sunset or whenever. Quiet street. And, only steps from beach access.

    Loved our stay was a but further out of the way than we thought but that's on us not the rental. Would loved to have had a grill or bbq of some sort. Groceries are a little bit of a trip to get to Fred Meyer in Tillamook was best choice we found. Eating out is a bit hard as much around closes very early, though the Lakeside grill was quite good!! Thanks for a great week!!

    Here are our thoughts from our stay:
    TV setup is awkward. We didn't use it, just FYI. Chairs and couch are sort of moderately icky craigslist special feeling items. The carpeted areas are 70's chic, and carpet that old just feels gross to me. The retro dining setup was cute. Cleanliness was middling but generally acceptable- pink mold on the shower curtain bottom, but not a lot, dog hair on chairs and under furniture and rugs. Throw rugs seemed like they had not been washed, or perhaps even vacuumed in a long time. Like most independent rentals, the laundry and sheets are fragranced,so beware if you are sensitive. Also, much dog poop on the upper lawn when we arrived, which we weren't too happy about. The kitchen had essentially nothing but pots and pans and salt and pepper, whereas usually there are some spices, tinfoil, etc., so make sure to bring EVERYTHING you need. Although local markets are surprisingly well stocked with specialty items (we went to Manzanita Fresh on the way back from a day hike), they are pricy. The pots were decent, and the kitchen serviceably clean. The location was excellent - close to beach access, and walkable to town. The nearby beach was very nice, aside from the bad citizens that don't pick up their dog poop. The city could benefit from installing poop bag stations, even of the share a bag type. There is no good place to rinse sand off feet out front or by the beach, unfortunately, but this is really no big deal unless you have kids, I should think. Be careful of the shower temperature - it is sensitive and can get quite hot, but there is plenty of hot water. You can see and hear the ocean from the patio, although the view is obstructed. None of the minor issues we had were such that we felt like it was worth contacting management, since it would have disturbed our vacation more to do so, but it is likely they would have addressed them if we had. In general, we enjoyed our stay and had no significant complaints. Though we would be unlikely to choose this property a second time, we might recommend it to others based on their needs and preferences. We would not recommend this for clean freaks, or people of large stature (bathroom is small), nor would we recommend for six full adults. A couple and three kids would probably be a comfortable max in our estimation.

    We stayed here for 4 days back in August of 2014. The property was steps from the beach and a few minutes stroll to downtown where all the shops, restaurants and attractions are located. They had a Sunday market as well with stuff for the kids. We stayed here with 2 young girls 5 and 7 and they had a blast. The house has a very interesting layout which we have never seen before. There is a bathroom in between a two twin bedroom (for the kids) and the parents room on the other side of the bathroom. Both bedroom doors opened up into the living room which had cable tv. The one downfall was internet connectivity. Our phones did not work well with our service providers so it was hard to get a good internet signal. The house was equipped with an internet connection but for some reason did not work. We spoke to the friendly owners of the building who live next door that said they have tried different service providers but for some reason it just wont work in this house. Not a big deal though, that leaves more time for family time without our phones! The house has a nice sun room in the front and a partial beach view on a clear day (but was pretty cloudy most days we were there). You are only a 30 second walk to the sandy beaches. The house was very clean and had all the amenities as described in the description. We cooked in the kitchen most our days there and we didn't have to bring a thing. The dishwasher was great to have. Paper towels and bath towels were all provided which we took advantage of. There was also a laundry right next to the kitchen which we found very useful. The bathroom was clean and we didn't really need to bring any soap or shampoo as Vacasa rentals provided this for the stay (but if you want anything other than standard soaps, you might want to bring your own). All and all we had a great time, the owners were very pleasant and helpful and we would stay there again. Great price for a family of 4 getaway.

    I really like the layout of this home. The best part is the front porch/veranda. If it wasn't an Oregon Autumn we would have been out there every evening. There's a lot of large windows, that bring in a ton of light.

    The single bathroom has two doors and is shared between the two bedrooms, but it didn't have any locks? Which we found kind of odd. And be aware that there is no bathtub, just a huge walk-in shower.

    And other than the previously mentioned outdated bathroom accessories, it was a very nice and clean place to spend a couple evenings with my family.

    Had a great weekend! We were in Rockaway for a family birthday. The location was perfect, and very quiet. We enjoyed being able to see the ocean from the sun porch, and beach access was just across the street. The house is very comfortable, and the pictures were excellent representations, so we got exactly what we expected. (Not all rentals have the best pictures...) we enjoyed our weekend, would recommend this house, and look forward to another opportunity to come stay again!!

    My sister, niece and I enjoyed renting this little two bedroom place that was very clean and spacious. It has a bathroom in the middle of the two bedrooms however and the people who stay in it need to be comfortable with sharing a bathroom so closely! Everything was newly painted and the floors were in nice shape. We loved the sun porch and the kitchen dining area! The place does need new living room furniture as it's probably 30 years old at least. The hardest part for me was the long stairs up to the front door as I have asthma and lung issues! Once I went up I could not come down to help unload or load the car! There is NO back entrance as it is on a hill and the backyard is a hill. Highway 101 runs behind the house at the bottom of the hill and is quite loud in the morning. No ocean waves to hear as you go off to sleep :(
