Cheri's Oceanfront Getaway 365 S Pacific, Rockaway Beach, OR 97136

Pet-friendly with beach access and ocean views, this gorgeous Rockaway Beach vacation rental is the perfect place for your next coastal getaway!

With a spectacular location right on the beach, this home has amazing views of the ocean, plus it's close to everything in town! Rockaway Beach is known for its beautiful sand, and there are endless activity options all within an easy drive of this home. Spend the day exploring the Oregon Coast, check out one of the many bars and restaurants, or just relax indoors - this adorable cottage has it all!

With a retro vibe and beach-friendly interior, this home offers a relaxed and cozy feel you will immediately love. The living room is open and spacious with wood-paneled walls, two red armchairs, and a comfortable sofa next to the fireplace. Snuggle up on the couch with a glass of red wine and warm up by the fire after a long day - there's also a flatscreen TV with Blu-Ray, cable, and Netflix streaming!

The dining room has a table with room for four people to share a delectable meal together, plus there's a seat in the bay window to take in views of the coast. Whoever decides to play chef in your group will enjoy the well-stocked, expansive white kitchen, but you'll have to flip a coin to decide who does the dishes - there's no dishwasher available.

With no stairs to climb, the two bedrooms are easily accessible. Each bedroom offers warm tones, a queen bed, ornate wood bed frames, and plenty of drawer and closet space to store your essentials. With the sofabed, this home can sleep up to six people. There's also one full bathroom with a tub and shower to wash off sand after a day in the sun!

You'll love the enclosed backyard with its tranquil gardens and patio. You can bring up to two dogs for an additional nightly fee. Fire up the gas grill as the sun goes down. There's also free WiFi, a horseshoe pit, and a private washer/dryer. This home is perfect for any beach bums in your group - you can walk right out the backdoor and down a path to the playa!

If you ever get tired of the beach - as if that would happen - there's plenty to see nearby. Hop on Highway 101 north to Nehalem Bay State Park or Oswald State Park - each boasts beautiful views of the ocean and hiking spots. Tillamook Bay is only a few miles south, offering excellent camping spots (if you want an overnight adventure), fishing charters, the town of Tillamook and the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Of course, you can always just spend the day in Rockaway Beach exploring the beautiful sands, renting sporting equipment, or eating delicious seafood!

See one of Oregon's gems for yourself at this inviting Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental!

    This place has everything and more that you need, even a potato masher for mashed potatoes. My family of 5 loved it and we will stay here again. Vacasa is an awesome management company as well. As you can see from the other posts, the style of the house is from the 1930's which we loved. The beach is right out your back door and is beautiful and quiet. The washer and dryer came in handy as we probably did 10 loads of laundry.

    Cozy house with a nice view of Twin Rocks. There is a short trail that leads down through the Beach grass to the Beach. We really liked the patio area & the Fire pit. Its protected from the wind with a nice covered bench seat so you can still have a fire no matter what the weather is doing. The yard was landscaped and taken care of, Looked nice.

    This is the second time we have been here in the last month...! It's a quick drive from Portland, the town is small, quaint and friendly. We have a 2 and a 4 year old and they played out back the whole time! The highlight is the train ride that leaves Rockaway 2x daily to Girabaldi, a must do for any train enthusiasts! All in all a great beach house, short walk to a lovely beach, great place for families with a little extra room for friends to come as well...

    What a find! First the house is vintage and cute. It was what I would expect for a beach house. There were games and books not that we spent anytime utilizing because the house is right on the beach. You walk down a little stone path over a mound and BAM! Ocean is right there. The beds were extremely comfortable. We stayed at a different location further down the coast our first night and wished we would have booked here instead. Walking distance to restaurants and stores. We had an excellent meal at the Sand Dollar. They make a mean Martini and the oysters 3 ways were amazing. Homemade desserts too. There is an outside fire pit that we utilized and made s'mores in the rain. The only negative I have about the home is that the windows don't open. It makes the house feel a little stuffy. This was a great experience and we are thinking about booking for next summer.

    My family recently celebrated my daughters 19th birthday at Cheri's beachouse. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean and comfortable we were. I loved the beach being right out the back and felt safe that there was a little fence that surrounded the back for our dog. It was a little chilly when we arrived but the baseboard heat completely warmed up the house in no time. The stay was perfect and the price was unbeatable. I would definitely recommend this beach house to family and friends and hope to stay again in the near future.

    The location of this house is fantastic, you can be on the beach in about a minute. The views are great. It's just a short walk to several businesses such as coffee shops. There's a nice little fenced area off the back patio which is convenient for letting dogs out. The fence is only about 3 feet tall though so big dogs and little dogs who are good jumpers can easily get over it if they want to.

    The house is definitely old and could use some very basic updating such as exterior locks being replaced so it's not a chore every time you need to unlock them. The beds in the two bedrooms are comfortable, but they're so high that they're difficult to get into. The house is heated by two baseboard heaters that are both in the living room. So the living room can get hot while the bedrooms remain very cold, but there are small space heaters provided in the bedrooms. The pull out bed in the couch is extremely uncomfortable, even by pull out bed standards. I definitely would not plan on two people sleeping on it, and one person would probably be more comfortable just sleeping on the couch.

    You can't beat the location. I'd stay there again if we only needed two beds or if we needed 3 beds and the pull out bed was replaced.

    House was old but that's OK; needs some real upgrades; especially power outlets! BBQ was old and rusty, not something we wanted to use! Easy access to the beach but house sits too low for any view from the chairs inside. Was warm and beds were comfortable but seating was not!

Loved the pink tile in the bathroom and the little hidden cupboards and drawers everywhere. Definitely a tidy, well-kept spot that's perfect for people who value a unique experience over luxury.

    We enjoyed 4 nights at this cute 1930's beach cottage. It maintains the charm and functionality that you see from that time period. It was a perfect size for our crew of 5. We enjoyed the outdoor space (although the sand dune obstructs most of the ocean view - just a very short private walk to the beach). We would happily return to this property. Our only recommendation during our stay was that the kitchen needed measuring cups/spoons and smaller sized pans.

    Upon arrival, we found a note that there was a leak in the laundry room that was being worked on supposedly. It clearly wasn't new and black mold had been growing prominently for a while. The room smelled of it and it was more than a drip. It rained non stop while we were there which was fine except the leak never stopped and got worse and worse. The floor to the laundry room was eventually covered in the yucky moldy water. In order to use the laundry services and tub for the pets, you had to be in and around the moldy water. This isn't acceptable and is a major health violation. Personally I do not believe this property should be rented out until the leak is fixed and the mold situation dealt with. My family left plugged up and sick. I am not happy at all about paying so much money only to deal with such a situation. Also, the front door is extremely hard to lock and unlock and being it is the only door you can lock, I find this unacceptable as well. The house was cute and clean and excellent location. The kitchen could use some help in the utensil and pots and pan department as that really isn't hard to add with stores like Dollar Tree and such now a days. If not for the laundry area and mold issue and door issue, I would stay here again and rate this place better. But I won't mess around with something like that and I should have had the choice before showing up. Call and tell us the situation. Put our credit towards a different place. Something. I will not be renting again from this site unless I am majorly compensated and/or credit for another stay at a DIFFERENT more acceptable place. And please, until the leak and mold is fixed, do not rent this property!!!

    I would recommend this place. for the price, you get what you pay for.
    Interior
    A little bit old and you can feel it in the design and there are a bunch of holes and wires sticking out. the bathroom was good with lots of towels which is excellent as there were four of us.
    the kitchen is big with a set of new dishes/forks etc. but it didnt have a frying pan!
    Beds were nice and the bedrooms are decent size.
    The dining room was ok sized but the table was high and only had four chairs. if there are more people, it is not impossible to get seating at the table for everyone.

    Outside
    The BBQ was falling apart and needs replacing/fixing.
    The fire pit was one of my fav parts about this place. There is no fire wood supplied but the market across the street sells it for about $8 per cu ft. The area is surounded by walls on three sides which makes it very isolated from the cold ocean wind.
    The ocean is a short walk away and it is amazing with beautiful waves. It made the trip amazing being that close to it.

    We traveled from Idaho during the massive forest fires to vacation in Rockaway Beach. The house was easy to find and the instructions for accessing the property were easy to follow. We brought our two bulldogs and very much appreciated the fenced yard behind the home (larger dogs may be able to jump the low fence). It was wonderful waking up to the crashing waves and the view of Twin Rocks from the property! The house is located conveniently a couple of blocks away from the middle of town.
    We found the house stocked with coffee, coffee grinder and a coffee maker which was a great way to start the day. The windows do not open so you might bring a fan during warmer months to circulate the air during the day. Hopefully the outlets will be fixed in the bathroom or bring a hat to cover up your beach hair! LOL
    It was a fun, relaxing vacation that was dictated by no one but ourselves. We enjoyed the WiFi and cable offered during a night we had to stay in. I miss this place already!

    We were disappointed with the quality of this property. If it weren't for the unbeatable location, we would have felt very let down. Right on the beach, an easy walk to the sand, beautiful views of the ocean and Twin Rocks, and a couple blocks to the main shops/restaurants in Rockaway. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with nearly everything needed to prepare a meal. Having a washer/dryer was very convenient for a family with little kids.

    That being said, the property is more than outdated, it's shabby. There were several places where old wiring was sticking out of the wall. There was a large hole in the kitchen wall that was only partially covered. The carpeting and furnishings were worn and stained. The window treatments in the bedrooms didn't block out any light at all. The shower is extremely small and cramped. If you are over 6 feet tall, plan on stooping to take a shower. None of the windows were able to be opened. It was unfortunate that we couldn't listen to the waves or have ventilation during the day. We have two very small children otherwise we would have opened the front and back door to allow for ventilation. The indoor fireplace wasn't working and was blocked by an unattractive electric heater with a fake fire that lit up. There is a gas grill, but we didn't use it because it was filthy when we arrived. Considering it's prime location on the beach, we assumed there would be more outdoor seating/furnishings. Other than two flimsy plastic chairs, there's really nothing else you can sit on to enjoy the view.

    This property could suit a couple or a family with older children/teenagers who don't have to worry about childproofing/safety issues. Of course you can't be concerned with modern amenities either. One last point, if anyone in your party still naps, be aware a steam train passes a block away from the house three times a day and blows it's whistle quite loudly as it comes into the Rockaway Beach station. It's neat to watch, and charming at first, but becomes less charming every time your toddlers are woken from their afternoon naps.

    We would use Vacasa again, and even stay in Rockaway Beach again, but we would look for other accommodations.

    Our family loved our time at Rockaway. It was amazing to us that in a few steps out the back door we were walking on the sand of a beautiful big beach with a view of the majestic 'Twin Rocks'. In fact they can be viewed right from the dining room.

    My wife and I found the house quite comfortable. It is an older house and in need of some upgrades and has a few small maintenance issues but if you are willing it is definitely worth the stay.

    You can tell the owners have put some work into the house with adding some nice newer furnishings and the hardwood in the dining area in bedroom appears
    to be original and gives the place some charm.

    You can't beat the location right on the beach. Rockaway as well is in a great central spot only 30 min from Cannon Beach to the north and a few minutes from Tillamook to the south. The house is also situated a short walk from the main business strip of Rockaway. We had a fun time exploring the unique shops. The Sand Dollar restaurant on the beach is a bit on the pricey side but the clam chowder is very tasty

    House was exactly as pictured; it was exceptionally clean yet lacked any personalization. I would guess that this house is used for rental purposes only - Personal touches would be nice (add some books; games, etc.). Kitchen was well equipped with dishes and pans; bring your own spices and essentials for recipes.
    Great location - I would stay here again!

    This was a perfect place to vacation with our two kids (ages 3 and 6) and our two dogs. I loved that it was beachfront, but the beach itself it set away from the house a bit (maybe 100 feet), which was nice that I didn't need to worry about my 3 year old making a run for the water without me seeing. The path to the beach is flat and easy to walk - no cliffs or rocks to walk over. The house was the perfect size for us and the small fenced yard made things much easier with the dogs. We have short dogs, so it was no problem containing them, but if your dog can get over a 30" gate, you might need to keep a closer eye on them. There is a washer and dryer which is handy, but pack your laundry detergent (I forgot). This place was great...quiet, cozy and had a great cottage feel.
