Loved our stay here! Excellent central location and steps from the beach. Top deck beach view - main living area is on the 3rd floor which we found perfect. My son went gaga over the XBOX. The kitchen had a funky smell and we couldn't get the central air or air hockey table to work ... but those were minor. We loved it and have already booked our return trip.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Mary! This home does not have air conditioning, so we do apologize for any misunderstanding that occurred leading you to understand that was an amenity. The air hockey table will be removed from the home as we have discovered it is beyond repair. Despite these things, we do hope you will come visit us again!
Carolyn H. Jul 2019
This is a great location for the week of 4th of July. The condo unit is near the beach where the city fireworks originate! This is our 2nd year in this unit. I hope to rent it again in the future. Nice Condo, good internet, cable TV. The only problem is a new structure that is 'in progress'. It totally blocks the view of the Twin Rocks and most of the beach to the south of the condo.
Randolph C. Jun 2019
Pricey but met our needs.
GARY O. Apr 2019
Very comfortable, relaxing, great view, plenty of space.
Joanne L. Mar 2019
Great pillows! Easy process from reservation to check out.
Kelly H. Mar 2019
Nice place, clean and well stocked for dinners etc. great view comfy place!
James S. Feb 2019
My wife and I and our two small dogs stayed here for a couple nights in February. The house was warm, cozy, and comfortable and it was great that it was right on the beach. We especially loved the multiple bathrooms, balconies, and fireplace. It was close to a house where our friends stayed, and easy to drive to great hikes, restaurants, and shops nearby.
Robyn R. Feb 2019
House was clean and tidy, comfortable with all the amenities one needs. Some foil, plastic wrap and bags wouldn't go amiss but just bring your own if you visit.
linda l. Nov 2018
The place was perfect for us and pet friendly. Great view steps to the beach. I will definitely come back
Jay N. Oct 2018
The place is bigger than the pictures make it look. In the garage there is a little recreation area with a air hockey table, no power nearby though. Kids would have loved it if it worked.
Lou F. Sep 2018
The view was amazing along with the weather and close to the beach and down town that's the good.
The bad, needs carpets deep cleaned some smelly orders inside,
burnt out bulbs in garage and other places as well.

The ugly, cable sucks only basic channels 2,6,8,10,12 needs bigger TV and one in the bedroom would be nice. Broken master bedroom door handle fell off in hand. All in all it was just ok would not rent it again, had problems with the cable and the DVD player was not hooked up, walks on the beach made up for it along with the nice weather.
Manager response:
The door handle has been repaired, and we do have a carpet cleaning scheduled when we do our deep clean in the near future. Thank you!
Kim A. Aug 2018
Great view and lovely home
Jane G. Aug 2018
Rockaway is not the most beautiful Oregon beach nor town, but it is a good alternative to a hot city in the summer, & other towns are nearby. The condo is nice, a list of small maintenance improvements was sent to VACASA to see to for future renters. There are 2 flights of stairs that some may have to consider, and the view to the ocean is NOT unobstructed, but can be managed. No condiments were in the cupboard, so bring what you will need & if you bring kids, bring games they like.
Cathy A T. Aug 2018
Needs Attention
Your experience: The ocean view isn’t bad even with the building across the way, the beach access is wonderful, only a few steps to the sand.. Great water pressure in both of the showers. The garage door opener was about to fall off the ceiling, we called to have it fixed, their response was spot on.
But, this condo needs a deep cleaning and interior painting.
The kitchen windows are extremely dirty and have several bird dropping (less than appetizing) if you want to set at the small table in kitchen. The kitchen is not very well stocked, compared to other places we have stayed. Several of the coffee cups are cracked or chipped, need to be replaced.
We were amazed their is not a recycling program in place, all the garbarge goes to one dumpster. The carpet throughout desperately needs to be cleaned. The bed in the smaller bedroom is extremely noisy and very uncomfortable.
I hope you take this review to heart and give this condo some much needed attention.

Thank you
Cathy
Manager response:
We greatly appreciate our guests' feedback. We have scheduled a deep cleaning for September, and a carpet cleaning will take place then as well. More coffee cups have been provided. Thank you!
Karl H. Jul 2018
We loved our trip and this town home was perfect and relaxing! Would highly recommend!
Kristin L. Jul 2018
Not worth the cost. Feels a bit dated and run down. ( ripped couch , dated bedding ) There are power lines and another house between you and your view. On the plus side you are close to beach and there is play space in garage for kids. For the price I would look elsewhere.
Manager response:
The owner does have plans to replace the sofa. Thank you!
Valerie C. Jun 2018
We lucked into this listing, just needing an extra day at the beach after our time was up in our house. We found this one with a single day rental. It is nice, clean, well outfitted, and when you open the windows the ocean rocks you to sleep. The only negative thing was one mattress needs to be replaced, has quite a sway. Everything else was LOVELY!! Thank you!
Manager response:
We inspected the mattresses and were unable to locate any sway. We are glad to see the stay was otherwise enjoyable!
Lee H. Jun 2018
The house was clean and well-stocked, with the beach almost at the front door.
Patti B. Jun 2018
We loved sitting on the deck and just enjoying the sound of the ocean and watching the people enjoy all the sunshine! Very relaxing week away from home.
Courtney H. Apr 2018
This condo is very nicely appointed-furnishings were all in good condition and the decorations were perfect for beach getaway! Our boys loved the air hockey table in garage. We loved the fireplace and views of the ocean! The beach is just across the street. There are lots of stairs so plan accordingly...forgot something in the car? Trek up and down 2 flights of stairs. The microwave didn't work and no pizza cutter but otherwise everything you need in kitchen. Very easy walk to convenience store and the other cute shops and restaurants in Rockaway. I would recommend this place for a getaway to the coast!
Jessica G. Mar 2018
Based on the photos I thought it was a two story townhouse. This isn't ideal for me, as I'm disabled, but for the price and location I was willing to deal with it. However when we got there we realized it was 3. The entire lower floor is a garage with an incredibly steep staircase to the second floor. The second floor is the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master has a nice, big, jetted bathtub and it was great considering how much pain I was about to be in lol. Then another very, very steep staircase to the upper floor with the 1/2 bath, kitchen and dining/ living room. Both the master bed and living rooms have balconies with chairs and really gorgeous views. I could've sat out there all day. The kitchen was amazing! Even had a waffle iron so our planned pancake breakfast was even better!! My boys were ecstatic to see not only an original xbox but a new xbox one s, too. Plenty of board games and things to do inside but the best part was the beach access. When they say right across the road they mean it. It's a small, dead end road just wide enough for 2 cars and the beach is RIGHT THERE. While very close to the public wayside it's just far enough that you can see tons of people just down the beach but hardly any right there. There's also a really neat little spot where these strange pools form at low tide. We had a blast playing there and found a little hermit crab and a sea snail. All in all I would highly, highly recommend this rental to any able bodied individuals. If you have mobility or pain issues I would say proceed with caution. I survived our 2 nights but can barely walk today, my first full day back home. However, it was totally worth it for the fun we had and the memories we made.
Jeremiah C. Mar 2018
Enjoyable Getaway!
Tyler M. Mar 2018
We had a wonderful stay here with our pup. It was off season, so not a lot going on, but just perfect for a quiet getaway!
Hafeez L. Mar 2018
Great place to stay and so close to the beach!

Wonderful location and views of the ocean
Leila G. Jan 2018
Pretty good place in general, but has some issues to be aware of. The main shared space on the top floor is extremely cozy, great layout, lots of natural light. Unit is perfect size for two couples, gave enough privacy, never felt cramped. Love the proximity to the beach, but that building blocking the ocean view is kind of a bummer. While the heat kept the top floor nice and toasty, the middle bedroom floor was always freezing; the vents just didn't seem to kick out much heat down there. One mattress was way too soft (and uncomfortable if you're posture-conscious), the other mattress was very springy. Mattress size seemed more like Fulls, not Queens. The towels and linens were heavily perfumed, so if you have scent sensitivities, you may want to bring your own. We actually had to rinse ours in the washer with plain water before using them just to dilute the scent a bit. Other than that, it's a functional, clean unit, and we had a great time.
Sandra B. Dec 2017
Have not stayed in Rockaway Beach for many years. Pleasantly surprised with shops and taverns and restaurants. Beach is very nice! Good place for our dogs to run.
Barbara S. Oct 2017
Rockaway has always been our favorite place to stay and this Condo is nice if you like to see and hear the ocean all the time your there. Its very relaxing and the fireplace is nice when its cold.We really enjoyed our stay again.
Kaidi W. Aug 2017
Nicely furnished and clean. Lots of stairs- one flight up to bedrooms, another to kitchen/living room. Some "air fresheners" that we and other sensitive parties may not appreciate.
Linda C. Aug 2017
Enjoyed this condo and the beautiful view and easy access to both the beach (steps away!) and the restaurants and shops within walking distance! We never drove until our visit was over!
Candy W. Aug 2017
We happened upon this spot because Cannon Beach was full, but I was so grateful that we did. We had a beautiful view just steps from the beach without all the crowds at either Cannon Beach or Seaside. We spent one day in those places and were so grateful to come back to our quiet peaceful townhome.
Jennifer O. Aug 2017
The condo is right on the beach which makes early morning beachcombing and nightly fires on the beach a snap. The stairs are a little steep but I'm in my 50's and didn't have an issue (other than dragging the suitcase I had overpacked up). Also the shops and restaurants are less than a 5minute walk. I love Rockaway because it's an easy drive to points North and South but is not as crowded and overran with tourists.
Chad I. Jul 2017
Spent a 4-day weekend here and loved every minute of it. The unit was well-maintained and literally steps from the beach. We loved having upper and lower balconies. The house across the street obstructed the beach view somewhat, but hardly a deal-breaker. The sunsets were spectacular.

The kitchen was well-appointed and had a wide variety of pots and pans, dishes and cutlery available to use. The wi-fi was also fast and reliable which kept the kids happy whenever we weren't on the beach. There were a variety of shops and restaurants within walking distance. We're already talking about planning another trip next summer. Highly recommend!
Alexis T. Jul 2017
This Unit and the one next to it have the majority of the ocean view blocked by another building. You can see it diagonally and the sound of the waves is lovely. Not having a direct view is not a big a deal if you spend most of your time out on the beach.

It had some maintenance items that should have been easily remedied before we ever showed up. Bring DVD's as it has only the most basic cable service and only about a dozen DVD options. If the weather goes south and you get stuck inside or If you are just worn out from all that sand and serf, Unless they add curtains to the top floor balcony windows, you won't be able to sit there and relax as the sun is at just the right spot to blind you for about 2 hours before setting. The place wasn't bad, but we won't be booking it again.
Dina M. Jul 2017
We stayed here with another family for the fourth of jury weekend. We have been coming to Rockaway Beach for a few years now, and let me tell you this was by far the best seat in the house we had to watch the BIG fire work show! With little kids it was perfect. Yes the stairs were a little hassle, on the bright side got to burn those calories :) A good home overall.
Barbara S. Jun 2017
Rockaway has always been our favorite place to stay. You can drive north or south if you want to explore different beaches and trails. The stairs could be to much for very old people or old dogs. We've really enjoyed this Condo.Thankyou, Vacasa and the owners of the condo.
Mary C. May 2017
Wonderful place to stay!
Brian R. May 2017
Cleaning fee too high for a one night stay. Will not stay again for a one night stay. Other than that really enjoyed it and loved the option to stay until 7pm for an additional $20. Great idea!

Other issue was no gate for the stairs. We brought our own to keep the kids safe but it didn't fit. Recommend providing this for the location so it is more appealing to families with small children. Just a suggestion.
Sydney P. Apr 2017
Stayed at this rental for a girls weekend and had a great time. A beautiful three story townhome. The top floor has a nice kitchen, a big dining table, and a spacious living area. The top balcony has great beach views and stairs to the beach are steps away. The bedrooms are nice and there are plenty of bathrooms. The only inconvenience is that the owners don't want cars in their garage and only one car can fit in the driveway. There was space to park on the street, however. Overall, a great place to stay!
Becky Y. Apr 2017
The property and town were very good.
SHARON C. Apr 2017
Loved the location of this property but cigar smoke from the neighbor on the deck made it impossible to be on the deck or keep the door to the deck open 2 out of 3 days. We liked the stairs but future vacationers should know that it's two steep sets of stairs to the main floor with garage on the first floor and bedrooms/bathrooms on the second floor.
Luke F. Mar 2017
Awesome location
Mary P. Mar 2017
I have been going to Rockaway since I was a kid and I enjoy going back for the beach when I can. This place was easy and locally situated , with easy access to the beach - really the pont.
Cynthia S. Dec 2016
We really enjoyed our stay! Property was exactly as described, and we didn't have any issues except for the fireplace pilot light was out, and so we weren't able to use it our first night. :( We would definitely stay here again!
Georgia M. Dec 2016
We stayed here over Thanksgiving. We are from Colorado and this was everything we hoped for In a beach rental. The weather was stormy but the condo was very cozy and we appreciated the fireplace. We also enjoyed the ocean view and beach access. One comment this condo is not handicap accessible as it is a 3 level condo with many stairs.
Devra M. Nov 2016
Very nice condo. Enjoyed our stay! Be careful of the red coffee mugs, they are not microwave safe and you will burn yourself if you use them in there.
Craig S. Nov 2016
Very nice rental!
David A. Oct 2016
This place is not for people who cannot climb stairs three flights will wear you out. Other wise the view is awesome from the balcony
Sherin P. Sep 2016
The living quarters are on the third floor, which means two LONG flights of stairs, the rooms do nothing to block sounds and are very small, along with the beds. And the view absolutely sucked. There is a massive building in the way.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see that this stay was disappointing for this guest. The home description and guest reviews help guests get an accurate feel for this home before selecting it for their rental. We have several agents available to assist guests in finding their perfect vacation home if help is needed in the matter.
Kadin F. Aug 2016
Awesome house. Only downside was basic cable only, really wanted to watch college football when we were down here, but all in all it's a great place .
Bruce B. Aug 2016
This is in a great location across from the beach. The views and decks offer a spectacular view of the ocean. Just 20 minutes from Tillamook and Manzanita! Great getaway!
Teresa G. Aug 2016
Condo was very comfortable with great beach access and located conveniently to local shops and eateries. Enjoyed kite flying on the beach and watching the sun rise and set from the patio balcony.
Linda P. Aug 2016
Nice layout of condo but very dirty
Manager response:
We apologize if the home was not up to our cleanliness standards; we will follow-up with housekeeping regarding the matter.
Jamianne S. Aug 2016
We took a quick trip from Portland to stay one night here and it was a perfect little escape. The condo was clean, bright, and invited us to relax with all its comfy accommodations. The beach is just right out the door - perfect for our family with young kids. The kitchen was well stocked too. The only downfalls were all the stairs in this 3-floor unit and the view of the beach was mostly obstructed by another building. Still, we would stay here again due to the wonderful location, well-kept accommodations, and helpfulness of the staff.
Mark R. Aug 2016
Clean and close to the beach, good location
Shelley E. Jul 2016
Staying here was like being home away from home, with all the modern conveniences and an excellent location for quick access to a beautiful beach!
Be sure to get your food supplies on your way in and outside of town though, the market is pricey and has limited meat and produce.
Kelli M. Jul 2016
If you do not like stairs do not rent. Parking is terrible, they must be small cars to fit in that tight garage. Lots of climbing of stairs which is fine for my family but not for some! Wish they had King beds instead of queen
Nancy K. Jul 2016
Enjoyed our stay.
Andrew H. Jun 2016
The property is very close to the beach (about a minute's walk), and the house is very well maintained and inviting. The two balconies were great for relaxing to a sunset, and the top one has a grill. Very pleased and will hopefully return, Lord willing. ????
Viktoria S. Jun 2016
Beautiful place, clean and cozy. Place have everything you need. Amazing view on the ocean from one side and mountains on the other side. Beach just few steps away from apartment. Two markets in 5-10 min away by walking and few restaurants.
Highly reccommend !
Jasmine J. May 2016
Wonderfully well maintained property with easy access to the beach and great view from balconies! Would revisit again and again!
Tamara L. May 2016
This is a great property. If you are taking older folks I would consider another property due to all the stairs. The views were excellent.
Barbara S. May 2016
The condo is very cozy and nice and conveniently located. When it was cool in the morning ,the fireplace heated the room very nicely.When it's hot in the afternoon, you just open the upstairs windows and the cross-breeze cools it down instantly. We never needed the furnace and there are plenty of extra quilts etc . and everything you need .It's a great place to relax.
Mary D. Apr 2016
Great location! Super welcoming and helpful staff!
Marcia H. Apr 2016
This was a great place to stay. I have stayed at many vrbo and home away, etc. and sometimes the description and pictures aren't factual. Not in this case! The place was as promised, great view, lovely setting and very comfortable. Having two masters was great.
Angel B. Mar 2016
Our family desperately needed a getaway to reconnect & relax from daily stresses. I am super pleased we picked this location just based on the fact that it was so quiet and laid back area. The house is located on a dead-end road with very minimal traffic and literally the beach is steps away. You can't ask for a closer location to the beach. The house had many steep steps being a three-story unit so by the end of the trip all our legs were definitely feeling it. Not bad for a little workout while on vacation. We came back home feeling mentally relaxed, but physically exhausted from all the fun we had on the beach! Great family spot for all age, even our dog had a great time!
Josie J. Mar 2016
Steps away from the beach!
David P. Mar 2016
Lots of stairs but worth. It for the view.
Valerie R. Mar 2016
Vacasa is my go to for vacation rentals. What I saw in the picture is exactly what I got. The home was very clean. I had no trouble what so ever. I highly recommend Vacasa. This was great . Thank you for the memories ????
Lynett H. Mar 2016
This is a great place to relax and enjoy your time.
David M. Feb 2016
this was a very nice place to stay. the place made our weekend very much enjoyable. Beach access is extremely easy. I would stay here again.
Nikki B. Feb 2016
We had such a wonderful time! The house was great, literally across from the beach. There were fun shops and some good food. Hope to return in the future!
Taylor L. Feb 2016
We had a wonderful time and it's the perfect little getaway house in a sleepy little town. We visited in January and it was rainy most of our trip but the place had such a great view we still had a fun trip.
Miriam B. Nov 2015
Relax in front of the fireplace in the morning with a hot cup of cocoa or coffee and take in the view of Twin Rocks. Walk out to the beach and revive your love of nature. Family time made comfortable and easy.
Jean F. Sep 2015
This unit is just steps from the ocean and perfect for a vacation to just relax. We walked and played in the soft warm sand. I even lost 6 pounds while having fun! The sleepy town is walking distance with lots of places to eat and buy those memorable trinkets and some local art. Campfires on the beach was AMAZING with a sky full of stars. We are making Rockaway beach our family favorite. The dogs give it ten barks!
Caprice A. Aug 2015
Really great property with a oceanfront view and steps away from the beach. The beach is beautiful. The only downsides were the cable in the description was more the local channels.
Jessica L. Aug 2015
We loved how close we were to the beach. Quiet town, not much to do, but it was relaxing. Lots of stairs, but the townhouse was spacious. Limited TV channel options, something to be aware of if that's important to you. Overall we had a nice visit.
Charles S. Jul 2015
great location, great view, clean, update couch and chairs.
Jennifer B. Jun 2015
We felt the location had a great view. The building in front blocks a little of the view but there is still so much to see from the deck. So close to the beach and the layout is great if you don't mind stairs. We would definitely go back to this location.
Jefna M. May 2015
This is an excellent location in Rockaway. The beach is visible from the front room and the fireplace cranks out cozy heat. We were happy they have air hockey in the garage, and some sand toys for guest use. This place is great!
Seana March M. May 2015
We decided on this Condo/apartment because we wanted to be right on the beach AND to bring our Corgis (2 dogs) with us on the trip. The condo/apartment was great and was very comfortable. We stopped at Trader Joes before we left the Portland area and stocked up on food for the week which worked out perfectly. This is the first time we haven't stayed in a hotel while vacationing and we are now Condo converts! We have every intention of returning later this year.
Bryan M. May 2015
Not sure I would stay in rockaway again as there simply wasn't much to do, but the house was great, cable had minimal channels but with the beach right there that was fine
Theresa M. May 2015
This place was awesome. We loved the condo, beach, and town. It was a prefect weekend getaway for my husband and I with our dog. It was beautiful weather for us so we were on the beach the majority of the time but the one rainy day we had we took a drive north to Seaside and it was less than a hour. The beach was gorgeous and always had people around enjoying it.
Brittany C. Apr 2015
It was so great! Just perfect for what we were wanting. A great getaway spot.
Christine S. Apr 2015
Loved staying at Rockport! Was very relaxing and beautiful!
Schyliar T. Mar 2015
Very nice house me and my best friend were having a girls weekend and I enjoyed our stay. Although there wasn't a welcome booklet to inform us of things with the house i.e wifi code, grill. Also weren't any cleaning supplies as far as cleaning tube or washing the dishes by hand. But we really enjoyed the house especially the view so gorgeous we walked everywhere in town. It's only maybe a twenty minute drive from other nearby cities.
Janet C. Jan 2015
The view and location were great. The condo was nicely furnished and the beds were comfortable. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, this fits the bill.
Danielle D. Jan 2015
The property was nice and clean and in great condition, but not as cozy as we'd of liked. You have a choice of being really warm on the top floor where the living room and kitchen are or colder on the lower floor where the bedrooms are. There were not enough outlets so you had to unplug the DVD player if you wanted to watch cable and vice versa. The filtered water in the refrigerator door didn't work and the tap water is bad and left a smell on the dishes so bring your own drinking water. The oven is really nice and the kitchen is equipped decently. The stairs are steep ! I'm not saying this condo isn't really nice. Little flaws just made it not as perfect as we'd of liked. The Rockaway Beach location is great. The town is cute, lots of little cafes. Beach Bite was delicious. During the off season store hours are random. Seaside and Astoria aren't that far to the north and the drive to Lincoln City and Newport wasn't bad.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear you were disappointed in the home, but greatly appreciate you letting us know what the problems were. The Property Manager is looking into your comments now so we can make improvements where necessary. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Marcella L. Dec 2014
Beautiful view,close to the beach, comfortable beds. There were very little channels on the t.v to watch, but there were lots of games and DVD player. The sand buckets came in handy for the kids.
Juergen B. Oct 2014
Property was very well maintained, furnished, and comfortable. Location was excellent for visiting Oregon beach towns. Living room / kitchen were on the top floor (3rd level) which had excellent views but two sets of steep stairs to get to.
Darryl C. Aug 2014
Great location, fabulous view, steps to the beach.
