The Whaler 872 N Pacific, Rockaway Beach, OR 97136

Traipse through the sand and get inspired by the Oregon Coast in this three-bedroom Rockaway Beach vacation rental with beach access and ocean views, a gourmet kitchen, and a wood-burning fireplace for eight lucky guests. The Whaler is beach chic at its finest and the perfect abode for your next family reunion or wind-swept holiday!

Sleepy Rockaway Beach is right across the street and your private balcony offers breathtaking views of the ocean valley. Pack your beach bags for days spent flying kites and building sandcastles, or explore the pedestrian-friendly community less than a mile away by bicycle!

Inside the home is sunny and inviting with unique arched windows and tasteful decor. The open-concept living room overlooks the balcony, providing teal-blue glimpses of the sea. Lounge around the wood-burning fireplace in the living room or grab a family board game on chilly nights. Home media entertainment includes three cable TVs and a DVD player to beat the rainy days blues! An office desk and WiFi will even keep you plugged into email when duty calls.

Beyond the living room is a large wooden dining table with seating for six. Host a clam bake with fresh food from the farmer's market, and prepare your meals with ease thanks to an enormous gourmet kitchen! An additional breakfast nook is ideal for quick meals. Sliding glass doors off the dining room lead to the balcony - the heart of this home.

The platform balcony is an ideal sunning deck, complete with patio furniture and a grill to serve shrimp skewers, corn, and potatoes! Uncork a bottle of wine and watch the sun set with that special someone, or start your mornings invigorated with coffee and a sea breeze!

With three bedrooms, two full baths, and one half bath, The Whaler comfortably sleeps eight guests. The master suite is serene with a king bed and private mirrored bath. A second bedroom offers a queen bed, and third bedroom is ideal for younger guests with its two twin beds. Additional home amenities include a washer and dryer and garage to keep you comfortable for extended stays.

Throw out your fishing line at Kelly's Brighton Marina or grab a burger and brew at Rick's Roadhouse if the line runs dry. Start your day with a hearty breakfast at Grumpy's Cafe, then beachcomb and explore the rocky tide pools.

Hike to Munson Creek Falls, take photos with the mysterious Octopus Tree or Twin Rocks, and marvel at ancient trees at the Cedar Old Growth Nature Preserve. Plan a day trip to Tillamook (30 miles away) offering the Cape Meares Light House, the Tillamook Cheese Factory, and fairways at the Alderbook Golf Course.

Whether on the go or relaxing at home, this sunny Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental is the ideal beachside getaway!

    The Whaler was really a gem to find. We were able to find it right before Christmas and book it for two nights for new year's eve. It's a lovely house and in a great location. And of course thank you for the view of the ocean! The house is not right front and center on the beach but right across the street but with a nice view and very easy to access the beach. Important - the beds were comfortable, and with 2.5 bathrooms, no problems for 5 adults. The furnishings are comfortable too. Kitchen worked well (but bring your own condiments!) We'll be back.

    This house is amazing in how nice and clean it is. The house is stocked extremely well, including games and sand tools. There is a beautiful view of ocean, but not oceanfront. I wil definitely come back soon. Great for families or girls getaway. The kitchen has every pan, utensil or dish that you will need. Washer and dryer are great to have available.

    This house was perfect for our small group of 4 adults and a toddler- plenty of space to spread out between the living room, dining area, and kitchen table. We brought beach toys, but there are plenty in the garage, along with a boogie board.

    The black out curtains in the bedroom were a pleasant surprise. (The majority of beach rentals that I've been to have thin curtains, or sometimes none at all.) That detail alone makes me want to return to The Whaler. :)

    We were only able to stay for 2 nights but wish we could have stayed for a week! The property and the location were so relaxing. The windows let in the most beautiful breeze and the sound of the ocean. It was awesome!
    There wasn't a lot to do in the town, but we traveled to Cannon Beach and Seaside and Tillamook. They were all easy drives.

    We were very pleasantly surprised at how nice The Whaler was. It had a very good energy feeling, was clean, spacious and ready when we checked in. The location has good close beach accessibility. The size and layout were perfect for our group. Most everything we needed for our stay was provided. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and hope to come back.

    We were extremely satisfied with the beach house cleanliness, full-equipped kitchen with everything we needed for preparing meals, easy access to the pristine sandy beach and would definitely stay again. Only items missing was an iron & ironing board.

    We loved this huge beach rental. It was very comfortable and accommodated our huge family gatherings. Everything was wonderful, my only comment would be to attach or remove the headboard in the master bedroom, it hit the wall every time you moved. I hope to stay again in this rental it was not lacking anything! Great place with a great location.
