Walking distance to the beach and amazing window view from room
Windows across the entire front and steps from the beach—heaven!
Couldn’t ask for a better location on the Oregon coast.

Good weather, no crowds... almost like our own private beach.
We rented "The Modern Beach Retreat" to celebrate my birthday and it was a wonderful place. It was great to have Queen sized beds in both rooms. It was wonderful to be allowed to include our pet with even a bowl and towels set out for him! We loved the views out to the mountains in the distance and the beach right at hand. It is a nicely outfitted condo very comfortably laid out.
There were only a couple of glitches that had to do with the rental company and a few suggestions for equipment that would make a stay nicer. The first is that one bed had not had its sheets changed when we arrived and the counter and microwave had not been cleaned. It took quite awhile to get through to the rental agency and remedy these. The first morning, all of our electricity in the kitchen was cut off for several hours. We never did get through to the agency but eventually the power came back on.
Mostly and in comparison to another unit that we rented a while back, this unit was very well equipped. We only have a few minor suggestions:
It would be great to have a towel rack by the sink in the bathroom
Supply a few more pods for the dishwasher. We were supplied with three pods for three and one half days and there were five of us who had most breakfast, lunch and dinners there. This was not nearly enough and so we spent a lot of time washing dishes by hand and had difficulty leaving the dishes clean when we departed.
Supply a dish rack for hand-washed dishes. We went through many towels to absorb the drips from washed dishes.
Supply a small plastic kitchen brush for scraping/washing dishes.
The placemats probably be replaced as they are quite dirty. Either dispense with them or they should be washed periodically.
My family absolutely loved the views from the kitchen and family room. Large condo. Huge beach with tons of sand and very few people. We will be back!
Wonderful beach, great views, clean and comfortable space. Only downside that was not in anyone's control was the burn ban which meant no fires on the beach at night.
Honestly I want to give a bad review because I want this place to be available at all times but I can’t. The view is amazing and if there aren’t any clouds or fog you can see the stars over the water directly from the couch. Things to keep in mind, there is no tubberware or foil but there is a dollar general 3 mins down the road if you forget anything AND if anyone in the building burns their lunch the fire alarm for the whole building will go off and it is most def designed to get you out of there. Overall this condo is amazing and I’m already planning my next visit.
This apartment suited us really well, beachfront, dog friendly, well appointed and comfortable. We all enjoyed the large soaker tub especially after a long day cycling. The views were spectacular when visible - we were in sea mist for 90% of our stay but travel short distance inland or along the coast and it broke into beautiful sunshine. There is a well equipped kitchen but bring ALL the basics if you intend to cook as the apartment has nothing and do your shopping on the drive in as Rockaway Beach as a town has only small convenience stores. Very different from the more up market Canon Beach, Rockaway Beach is in a time warp all of it's own! We really enjoyed being able to bring out dog, but some dogs appear to have been left unattended in the day and were rather noisy. The apartment has no air con and leaving the bedroom windows open at night meant sleep was disturbed by traffic noise. The stairs to the apartment were fine other than on check in and check out, shame the elevators are not available to guests, don't quite understand why this is the case. We would consider returning in the cheaper off season as we felt we paid top dollar for this rental and thoroughly enjoyed our stay but felt a few basics in the kitchen, some washing powder, use of elevator etc would be appreciated
This is a great condo just steps away from the beach on the less-crowded end of Manhattan Beach. It was a very spacious and well decorated place with everything we needed in the kitchen. Two things stand out the most...besides being steps away from the beach: the huge windows overlooking the ocean (some that you can open to hear the waves crash onto the beach) and the very comfortable beds. I've truly never slept so good and I have a Tempur-Pedic mattress at home. The place was clean and inviting. The carpet & rugs were in good condition and gave the condo a very cozy feel. They also did not have a strange odor which I was concerned about before coming. With Cannon Beach to the north & Tillamook to the south, I felt like this was the perfect location for what turned out to be a perfect vacation. We will be back, for sure!
Well stocked, amazing views.
A beautiful home with stunning views from a wall of windows!! Beach access is ideal, the beds are so comfy and the kichen is well stocked.
This home was an amazing place to spend a few days on the coast. We were close to everything, yet it was secluded and private enough to not be in the middle of a lot of tourists. Would definitely stay here again. You cannot beat the view from this home.
Beautiful beach and wonderful condo, absolutely gorgeous inside and out!
Loved the view and opening the windows for fresh sea air. Great kitchen, well-stocked with utensils and small appliances. Nice big tub in master bathroom. We had a great time biking into town and exploring the beach.
Awesome views from a beautiful home outfitted with everything you need. Comfortable beds, plenty of linens and towels, clean and neat. This is one of the VERY BEST vacasa homes we have stayed in.
The view from the condo was wonderful and access to the beach was great. The condo is showing it’s age but still in good condition. Rockaway Beach has a limited amount of eateries, especially during the winter months so plan on cooking in the well equipped kitchen. The only thing I would suggest as an additional appliance would be a slow cooker.
Very nice location, very nice condo. Thank you very much for being dog friendly No hot water. Will find another location next time
We inspected the hot water after receiving this review and found there to be plenty. We wish the guest had contacted us regarding the matter during their stay so we could have assisted them.
Despite a few cleaning issues it was a wonderful time and location for peaceful beach enjoyment!
You can't beat the view at these condos. The weather was gorgeous while we were there over New Years, but you almost wish for rain so you have an excuse to sit inside and enjoy the condo and the view. Really a nice place and so convenient to the beach.
We were very impressed with our stay here.
Great location and condition of property...pleasant days walking the beach or just relaxing in the living room with the view.
Comfy condo over looking beach, great access to beach and a wonderful place to storm watch.
This was our 2nd time at The Modern Beach retreat unit10. It is always super clean with great views. It is now our place for our annual beach trip! We love it here!
We have stayed in several units at this property and this one was one of the nicer ones. The bed was comfortable although the pillows could have been better. (Dense, flat foam, so bring your own if you like something different.) The unit was pretty well equipped, but could have used some more mid-size pots and pans and bowls. Also, think about bringing some spray cleaner since none is provided. (Our favorite unit at this property is very well stocked with basic cleaning supplies and seasonings.) Otherwise, the unit was comfortable, attractive, and had an expansive view. The hot water was generally great in the morning and a little variable at other times. The heating and water system for these properties continues to mystify me, but we have never had major problems, so it was just fine. With all of the windows closed, it got a little stuffy, but we were able to get a good cross air flow going by cracking windows at opposite ends of the condo. Not sure how hot it gets in the summer with full western exposure, but we had generally pleasant temperatures during our stay (mainly 60s and 70s). Great location--beautiful, uncrowded beach.
Love this condo-clean, comfortable and well stocked. Keep in mind that most of Rockaway Beach is closed T-W as posted and some beyond that and not posted. You will need to bring plenty of groceries or go to other towns to seek shopping and meals out. If you like seafood, the Sand Dollar Restaurant has good service and food and Kelly's just up the coast a bit will clean and steam crab for you or set you up to catch your own from pier or boat and they are very friendly.
Great Place to stay - wish it was longer.
Loved our Stay. Our dog and kids were tired every night
We loved the cleanliness of this condo. It made us take want to take extra special care of the condo. Love this space and hope to come back.
Two of my sons and their wives shared this unit for 4 days of our 26 person family&friend reunion. We gathered from WA, CA, WI, AK, and Germany. There was so much to do in the area - beach fun and campfires, nearby boat rental for a few hours of crabbing, hiking on great trails, and exploring other nearby beach communities. They contemplated surfing, but the surf/tide wasn't cooperative when they wanted to go. And, they even pried barnacles off the rocks nearby to cook one evening for their seafood feast. The only thing that would have been nicer would be warmer weather. It was a bit chilly the second week in June. Everything else was fabulous!!!
My wife and I have been here 3 times now (stayed in different units each time) and have loved them all. Location is right ON the beach so don't worry about if you will be close or not. From the time you step outside the units door, you will be in sand within 30 seconds TOPS! Very relaxing and peaceful and great little shops and small cafes/mom and pop stores right down the road. Even larger grocery stores (Fred Meyer) are only about 20-25 min away.
Over a sand dune and you have access to miles of beautiful beach! Watch the sunset or storms roll in! Very relaxing!
The pictures really are accurate in terms of how close you are to the beach, and how great the views are--fantastic sunsets, super easy to be outside in seconds with a campfire and S'mores--and unlike beaches up the coast the entire area in front of this condo feels so private and secluded--no crowds at all. Would highly recommend driving the extra distance to Rockaway for your next escape, our dog may have had more fun than we did!
We are booking it again for the fall.
This condo is fantastic and the views cannot be beat. There are floor to ceiling windows all the way across the front wall. The kitchen was very well equipped and allowed us to eat most of our meals at "home." Access to the beach is super easy -- just a quick walk over a small dune.
We really enjoyed the stay. It was a stones throw from the beach and had great views
The view was terrific and very accommodating especially with our dog. Very easy access to the beach. This place was great for two couples. We really enjoyed having a King bed and a Queen bed rather than twin beds which are usually for kids. We will definitely come back again.
We absolutely love this place! A beautiful view and fully stocked kitchen for cooking. It was larger and more impressive in person. The bicycle theme was awesome! And the ensuite, fabulous... We can't wait to go again!
Our second time here, really like the location.
Awesome views, great location, comfortable stay!
I highly recommend staying at this condo! The views were amazing, the place was very clean and tidy, it's located right on the beach, it was lovely!
I must say this unit was quite lovely and recently redecorated with new artwork and furniture. It was very comfortable and well outfitted, both linens and kitchen necessities (we even had a large crock pot to make pulled pork - ready in time for the Seahawks game). Plenty of space for two couples! The view - FANTASTIC. Also, the pictures don't do it justice. It is actually larger in person than it appears in the pics. Comfy beds and pillows. Our stay at this condo property actually started out in another unit, but due to the extremely cold weather, the pipes had frozen (no water) and we were moved to #103. The representative picked up the phone when we discovered that we did not have water and met us within 15 minutes to show us similar units. She even offered to help schlep our things from the old to the new unit!
My husband, small dog, and I stayed here the last week of October, so we expected cold and rainy weather. I had concerns about the radiant heating and shower hot water based on previous reviews I read, however, we had plenty of hot water! We followed the instructions leaving the radiant heat set to 68, and used the provided space heaters (one for every room!) and stayed very cozy. There was even enough hot water for soaks in the huge tub-which was amazing after long and adventurous hikes in the surrounding Capes and state parks. The kitchen was perfectly functional for us, and the condo was very clean with everything in working order. But that view!! The huge floor to ceiling windows frame a very quiet and peaceful stretch of beach. We spent our morning sipping coffee and watching the tide roll in, wave after wave breaking on the shore. This condo is literally steps from the beach. We really liked the location being north of downtown-it was very quiet and private. The covered parking is handy during the rain! I have only 2 gripes: I wish the mattresses were a little higher end, and the internet was less spotty. But the luxury feel of this place with the incredible views and proximity to the beach completely outweigh my complaints. We will definitely be back!
I will absolutely be back to this property. The staff was helpful, the condo looked just like the photos, and the weekend was an excellent get away from the city.
We were very happy with the condo and its surrounding. Being able to look and the beach 24 7 was perfect. We will be back.
Loved the setting of the property and how it sits along the shore line..
This location is ideal. The condo was beautiful minus a few issues. I think if Vacasa can get a new cleaning crew in there, the rental would be perfect. Super easy access to the beach, relatively quiet surroundings, gorgeous windows from ceiling to floor. It definitely does get cold and the heaters they have are quite odd, pack an extra blanket! Besides my complaints about the cleaning crew missing giant crumbs under the couch, leaving us 1/8 a roll of paper towels and the unit having no cleaning products to wipe down counters or clean up spills the place is pretty darn amazing and we will be back for sure.
This is about my 7th stay at Rockaway Beach Nedonna Condo's. We love it there and walking right out to the beach is the best!!
Honestly I would not stay at this place or book a reservation until the management company has confirmed that they have made repairs to the unit and appliances. If you do book the apartment you should run the hot water in the bathroom to clear the water heater. And check all the doors and appliances so that vacasa can send someone to address any issues while you are at the beach. Came to propose to my girlfriend at the beach and have a campfire. That part went well, but I would be lying if I didn't mention the state of the unit taking something away from the experience.
We are disappointed to see that the condo did not add to such a huge life event; the Property Manager will look into the items this guest has mentioned.
Stayed in unit #103 from September 11-14 with my husband and our twin 1 year old toddlers. Beautiful location and picturesque view from the unit, couldn't ask for better. Unit is very clean and I don't have any complaints about the tidiness of the property. So wonderful to have a washer/dryer in unit as anyone with young kids can attest to I'm sure! Now the deficiencies. Upon arriving and trying to cook our first dinner after a long drive, we discovered that the oven didn't work at all, and one of the knobs for a stove top element was broken so that we couldn't shut off the heat! A little hazardous. Luckily we were able to cook with the microwave but not the tastiest method. There is a beautiful patio to sit out on and enjoy a morning cup of coffee, but if only we were able to open the patio door. But we couldn't because it was broken. Fail #2. I called the Vacasa # provided and received a call back within 2h and were told that someone would be by to take a look at the issues either that evening or at the latest the following morning (Monday). We never received any call and no follow up call either. By the end of the stay, we discovered that the ice maker was broken, the knobs on the toaster were broken, and the fan in the 2nd bathroom was broken as well. I didn't report until our 2nd last day due to the poor track record from my previous call, and didn't have faith that anything would be addressed during our stay anyways. The customer service was excellent, I have no complaints about them, but this is our 3rd time back to these rentals and it has sadly gone down from our first two visits. Unfortunately this was our first vacation with our children and it could have gone a bit more smoothly. We ultimately returned for the view and the location but I'm worried about how things will deteriorate if we return next year. It would have been nice to have received a heads up about the broken items, especially the oven, as that would have given me time to prepare an alternate meal plan.
We apologize for the many inconveniences this guest experienced. The Property Manager has repaired the door and will work on other repairs as he is able.
For a little more than a hotel room, you get to stay in a spacious 2bd/2ba condo right on the beach. This was our 2nd stay at Nedonna Views. There's always something to nitpick, but in general a great value. Would love to see a Kuerig in the units, but maybe next year. We loved Grumpy's for breakfast and Beach Bite for dinner, and being able to snack and lunch back at home.
You have to book this place!!
When you see a property online you're never completely sure what you'll walk into. Well what we walked into exceeded our expectations in most ways. The condo is big, great layout with a kitchen island that doesn't disturb the room flow. A small patio with chairs. The best feature is the complete wall of windows facing the ocean. The top windows open inward so you can hear the ocean and stick your head out and breath the clean ocean air! You're 20 yards from the beach, down the stairs and to the sand. Well worth our time and money. We'll be back for sure!
Loved the floor to ceiling windows of this property. It was very relaxing here.
Beds were very comfortable. We would stay again - maybe to watch those winter storms!
Nice location with covered parking. Great beach view from large windows in spacious living-room and dining room. Huge shower and tub. Nice kitchen with dishes and utensils and convenient appliances.
The view was amazing and the location is great. Nice open space with lots of room. Not a lot of hot water which is a bummer especially since master has a huge bathtub. Overall great place!
Fantastic unit. Literally less than a stones throw to the beach. This is the quiet end of the beach - not many people. Unit is beginning to show its age. Needs some TLC. But the view and sunsets are worth it.
A great place to spend a few quiet and peaceful days with family or friends.
Our family stayed here for the second time and loved it. Secluded beach, quiet area, and incredible views, clean and comfortable condo. The staff was quick to respond with a problem we had and they were super helpful in the process. This is a great place to bring the family for some time away from the busy-ness of life.
The Nedonna Views Modern Beach Retreat was a fantastic place to stay! With a gorgeous location right on the ocean, clean rental all around, and convenient check-in and check-out, our weekend at Rockaway Beach was enjoyable and carefree!
We stayed three nights and wished it could be 3 months. Everything was more than we hoped for.
The location is perfect. 20 steps and you Are on the beach
Awesome view, nice quiet location that's right on the beach. Wish for the price it had nice kitchenware - at least fry pans that weren't all chipped Teflon and that there was enough hot water to fill the soaking tub as the hot tubs aren't working. This place could be super amazing if they took it up a notch for the price (mainly the fees) and the hot tubs worked!
We are glad you enjoyed the home and the amazing view that it comes with. Thank you for your feedback about the kitchenware. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests experience. We appreciate you choosing Vacasa and cant wait to have you back.
The view is amazing and the location to the beach is just steps from the unit. Very clean and nicely decorated. They gave us the option of a late check-out which made it all the better. Not a lot to do in Rockaway, but the beach is the main attraction. Can't wait to return.
Large condo wth a great view and easy beach access. Very comfortable and a good value.
I don't feel that what is stated on the websites is honest. Hot tubs have not been running in awhile.
Beach view is amazing!! We love the roominess.. We have noticed that the room rate, cleaning fees etc are going up every year but the cleanliness and upkeep of the units has suffered a bit. Still, we had a great stay again this year!
So last year we stayed at the stony brook condo and it was fantastic!! So I decided to spend more to get a better view and better place. Worst mistake I ever made! We had no wifi. Couch was all stained and nasty and also the arm was broken and was just laying up against it. The chair in the living room was broken also, the whole support system was ripped out of it and hanging on to the floor. The place smelt bad at our arrival because there was gravely/potting soil in there and also some kind of gross rotting smelly food was still in the disposal. The counter tops were sticky/oily. So I had to Come in and reckless everything. I had to call the vacasa number three/four times because of things were broken or not cleaned. Very upsetting. Also nothing was resolved our whole week stay there. Except on our last day the manager came to check our wifi that I called about the first day. And he said that the company didn't pay their bill. I will not be coming here again.
We are sorry to see that your experience was not all we would have hoped. Housekeeping has been reached out to regarding the cleanliness issues, and we will continue to bring the other items to the owner's attention.
The view and location to the beach. Its literally right on the beach access.
King bed is a great.
The following items are broken:
TV stand drawer
Kitchen cabinet handle
There was no hot water for showers, very disappointing.
Couch and carpet were very stained.
I called vacasa one time when I couldn't get the washer to work and no return call.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to see that you experienced so many negative things during your stay. The Property Manager is aware so he can address these items with the owner. We hope that you still enjoyed your time in the area!
My car was broken into while staying here so that wasn't a great experience. Entire passenger side window was smashed. Local police claimed these types of things very rarely happen in his town but it sucks when it happens to you. On the 3rd day before we left there was no hot water in the morning. The manager claimed that the radiant heating messed with the hot water and we needed to turn off the heat for a while to get it back up and running. Didn't really effect us but it would've been incredibly inconvenient if it happened earlier on. The place was huge and had an awesome kitchen that was well equipped. Big tv but a horrible uncomfortable stained couch that seemed really out of place for the quality of the rest of the place. The view was absolutely amazing but having wall sized windows but no blinds as people walk by is a little odd.
Overall the place looked incredible but had a bunch of weird inconsistencies.
Thank you for sharing your review with us. We are very sorry to see that you experienced a theft during your stay and hope that everything turns out okay. The Property Manager is aware of your comments regarding the condo and will discuss them with the owner. We hope you had a wonderful time overall!
The view is incredible and dogs are allowed, which is wonderful. It's also pretty quiet there; you don't hear your neighbors much. So, it's a pretty relaxing place and the kitchen is pretty well stocked (utensils, pots, pans, coffee machine and filters, etc.). We enjoyed a small town diner experience at Downie's in Bay City TWICE. I recommend it to anyone who loves the American diner scene. Good food and lots of it. Also, we enjoyed Kendra's in Tillamook. A little pricey, but delicious and very friendly staff.
That's the GOOD.
Here's the BAD and UGLY:
- The couch and carpets are stained and worn. I've stayed in Unit 103 four other times and it's always this way. I have learned to bring my own bedding (including mattress cover) and sheets for the couch and living room floor so that we feel more comfortable. I wish they would address these longstanding issues of cleanliness.
- It'd be easier to get everything up to the unit in the elevator. The elevator for 2 other units was operational. In conversation with the person renting one of those units, it's about whether the owner will pay for the elevator upkeep. This is just gossip in the parking lot, but there is no denying that only ONE out of the EIGHT elevators that was operational. Apparently, the owners of units 201 and 202 pay for elevator upkeep. Maybe they also maintain their units better. I'm certainly thinking my next stay there might be in a different unit.
- The key lock wouldn't release the key. This required 2 phone calls and a visit from Vacasa. In the end, it seems this is a common issue and you have to press with one hand on the center of the lock while pulling the key with your other hand. Lovely. It was this way for the whole week we were there.
- The Wi-Fi was locked and no password was provided. It took a phone call and another visit from Vacasa to figure out that this was not longer an unlocked Wi-Fi named 103. It is now a locked Wi-Fi with a password that is written on the bottom of the modem. This is NOT what the unit's guest books says, so that should be updated.
- One last issue: my windshield wipers were stolen overnight on the 4th night there. Bizarre and random. Also, very problematic because I had to drive to Tillamook in the rain to get new ones, which was very difficult and required me to pull over every few minutes to wipe the windshield with a towel so I could see.
Other than all of that, we had a good vacation. Could have been worse...but, Vacasa, you can do better. :)
We greatly value your feedback and want to assure our guests that we take it seriously. The Property Manager has been advised of your comments so he can discuss them with the owner. These condos are well-loved due to their ideal location and fantastic views, and we will do our best to keep them well-maintained. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Main living room couch is almost broken and is the most uncomfortable piece of furniture I have ever used. It was so bad, I chose to recline on the bed (with no view). Master shower has some black mold in the grout?
There is only enough warm water to full about 3" of the tub. We heated about 8 pots of boiling water and added them to the tub so our kids could finish their bath. There is no possible way to take a bath because the boiler is either set way to low or is way way way too small. Shower was ok because at the hottest setting (which feels pleasantly warm), it lasts about ten minutes. Not sure what you'd do if you had multiple people wanting to shower.
Great internet and TV channels! Windows and doors were awesome, you can crack them open from the top, or open then all the way, really cool feature I've never seen.
Carpet and living room couch was horribly dirty, spots and stains everywhere. I put a blanket on the sofa and it was fine. However, I'd rather have that and have them accept pets, than having a clean place with a no pet policy.We were overall happy despite all the cleaning and maintenance issues because we were able to stay in a great location with our dog, and the late check out was awesome. Instructions from vacasa were clear, the price was terrific! This would be 5 STARS if the couch and boiler issues were addressed.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. We will look into a cleaning for the couch and will take care of the mold. The hot water in these units can be tricky as they use radiant heating - the warmer the thermostat is set, the shorter the hot water will last. We are glad to see you enjoyed your experience overall!
My husband and I and our small dog stayed here for four days to getaway and relax. The view is gorgeous and peaceful. We played on the beach, cooked all of our meals, and relaxed to the sound and view of the ocean. We did bring a couple of our own cooking supplies. It has the basics that you will need though. There were some small stains and a little wear on the furniture and carpet but nothing major. I so badly wanted to enjoy the large bathtub (especially since I don't have a tub at home) but every time I attempted to fill it I could only get the bottom of the tub filled before the water would go cold. I tried at different times on different days but still never close to filling it. That was my only disappointment with our stay because I was looking forward to a long hot bath when I booked our stay.
Loved the modern style, the beautiful view, and the large nice beach!
This unit had panoramic views of the beach and ocean. It's a little outside of 'town' so perfect for a quiet getaway. The king size bed and master suite bathroom were very nice. Furnishing were decent-what you expect in a rental. We would stay at this unit again!!
This building is beautifully located and each unit is right at the beach. Hard to go wrong there...and this unit sure doesn't. It's worth noting that this unit, #103, is right above the trail to the beach that the whole building uses so there is a bit less privacy given all the glass on the unit. Other stacks wouldn't have this issue.
The owner can't change that but this unit could be improved by a few more basics such as clocks in the bedrooms, a stereo, a bit more lighting in the living room, etc. Some vacation rentals feel lived in and have touches of home and conveniences from the owner/past users. This unit doesn't and feels a bit more like a hotel room. Not a huge issue but good to know in advance!
We appreciate your suggestions and will take them under consideration!
Great vacation spot for the family to enjoy the beach right at your footsteps! View from the condo was priceless, complete beach view. Full amenities for our family to have a relaxing, fun vacation. We will be back for more fun in the sand!
If you are looking for surf, sand, and beach parties. .. THIS IS NOT YOUR BEACH. .. hed to nearby Canon Beach, spend twice as much, act like a snob, and try to find a parking spot or a restaurant without a 45 minute wait.
Rockaway Beach is relatively uninhabited, quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. A place where you meditate and do yoga early in the morning, walk the stretch throughout the day, and drop your gear anywhere. .. no crowds.
Probably shouldn't have said that. .. now everyone will flock to this wonderful secluded locale.
We liked the unit 103 - the views of the ocean were outstanding, the place was not too worn out and relatively clean. However, we all developed strange allergy symptoms like coughing and wheezing aftera couple hours inside, so there is probably a ton of dust on the surfaces. Carpet and couch were stained and worn out. The rest of the place was ok. We would probably stay there again if there were no better option available. If they do better job dusting and vacuuming - and maybe steam-clean the carpet and the couch - they place would be absolutely perfect.
We appreciate your suggestions and will take them under consideration. We are delighted to see that you loved the views! Thank you!
We had a wonderful time! The beach is beautiful and not crowded at all! One of my favorite experiences was watching a bald eagle have something to eat right on the shore in front of our condo. I got some lovely photos even with my little inexpensive camera!The condo is comfortable and beautiful, well stocked with all of the essentials and a few extras like a blender, dishwasher and washer and dryer. We are planning a future vacation with extended family and we are going to vote for us all to spend it at Nedonna Views in several of the condos!
We just love this place and Unit #103 in particular. We've stayed here 4 times and it has been just lovely every time. The condo is gorgeous with floor to ceiling windows and an open floor plan. There are lots of windows that open, so even when you are inside, you feel like you are on the beach. The furnishings are modest, but comfortable. The master bedroom has a king bed, en suite bathroom, and balcony. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed. There is a full bathroom in the hallway, a washer and dryer, and ample closet space. We just LOVE this unit.
Access to the beach is at the bottom of the stairs and the beach is never crowded. If you have a dog that needs some room to run away from other dogs (like one of mine), this is the place for you. We can see who is on the beach and time our outings so that we avoid other dogs. This is just a super dog-friendly place.
The kitchen is well-stocked; it even has a coffee machine (and coffee filters) and a toaster. I had to work while I was there and the wi-fi was fantastic. I had no connection issues at all. My brother brought his Roku box and easily hooked it up to the TV so we could watch Netflix and Amazon movies in the evening.
This place is just lovely, serene, and comfortable. I recommend it wholeheartedly!
Beautiful views. Comfortable. Nicely furnished. Thank you for allowing well-behaved dogs...they loved the setting and strolls on the beach
Waking up to that view every morning is what life's about .
Waking up to that view every morning is what life's about .
There are few properties that allow dogs and this is such a plus. Such a quiet beach for both people and dogs! Amazing ocean views with sunrises and sunsets right out your floor to ceiling windows!
Thank you for your fantastic review! The views from this unit really are amazing and the stretch of beach is perfect for long walks and letting the dogs run. We are glad everyone enjoyed themselves and hope to see you again!
This is my second time staying in the Nedonna Views complex, and my first in this particular unit. It's got a large and expansive view of the beach (so lovely!), so it's an excellent choice for maximizing your gazing time.
This unit is also perfect for two couples; the bedrooms have a king and a queen bed (instead of a king and then two doubles, which seems typical for other units). We really appreciated the fact that no one had to get the "bad" room in this case.
The kitchen is fairly well-stocked, though some potentially useful kitchen tools (tongs, liquid measuring cup) were missing. Be sure to bring all your own spices, oils, etc, as all that was there during our stay was salt and pepper. (I'm sure more things are left behind in summer, however.)
Overall, Nedonna Views is always a perfect Rockaway destination, and this unit lives up to that high standard!
Would go again!
Pros: Beautiful View :-) RIGHT next to the ocean. Big Windows. Friendly service.
Cons: Pull-out couch is kinda cheapish, wouldnt plan on sleeping on it more than a night or two. Little bit more cleaning required for checkout then other places I've stayed.
I've stayed at 2 of the condos now. I loved 103. I had some difficult medical news and needed a peaceful respite. This place IS IT. Beautiful views, comfortable, clean and quiet. Will return as often as possible.
We stayed here with another couple and had a wonderful time! The kitchen was fully equipped to serve all of our needs. The view was truly amazing!
This property is incredible. The view is amazing and the place is huge! The beach is very secluded, you will be one of the only people there all day. Fires on the beach at night are a must. The location is perfectly situated between Cannon Beach / Oswald West and Tillamook. Not a ton in the nearby towns for shopping or tourism but that isn't why you visit this part of the Oregon Coast. I will stay here again and again and recommend it to everyone!
Thank you for a great review! We love to hear back from guests that the home was perfect for their stay! We're glad you enjoyed the secluded beach, and the location! Thanks for the recommendation.
ThIs Condo Is Bright, Spacious And Up To Date. It Was One Of Th Nicer Ones My Husband And I Have Stayed At Over The Years And Priced Right. Much Nicer Then Many Of The Run Down Motels We Have Stayed At For The Same Price. We Would Definitely Stay Here Again.
We loved our stay here - the views are incredible!
I had the opportunity to stay in this condo with my future in-laws. What a great way to bond with the new family! It was so nice to escape the day to day hustle to have some protected time to dedicate to getting to know them. The condo itself was immaculate-- props to the cleaners and to Vacasa for taking such great care. We had everything we needed. The beds were incredibly comfortable. We had a little bit of rain during our stay, which is expected in Feb. but we were able to enjoy the beach regardless. We can't wait to go back!
It was a great place to come and relax as there wasn't much more to do than go for walks on the beach. Everyone is able to bring their dogs so that is really nice for those of us with dogs. They loved playing on the beach and watching the beach from the condo windows.
Thank you for your great review! Sounds like the dogs had a ball, Rockaway is such a dog-friendly area. Rockaway itself is small, but just a few minutes away are the towns of Wheeler and Manzanita, both offering a great range of shops and restaurants.
Don't judge by the garage. The units and views are beautiful and right on the beach!
This is our second year staying in this unit and our experience has been wonderful. Will keep coming back!
Thank you again for letting us serve you. See you next time!
We enjoyed our stay very much and are planning to come back again definitely!!! It's a great little hideaway and beautiful interior and awesome beach view. so very relaxing!!! We couldn't have picked a better place for us to spend our weekend. It was perfect! Highly recommended.
This is the second unit we've stayed in, and it did not dissapoint (although having people exit the beach in full view of your unit's window was not always great). We haven't found another place that offers full beach access, clean and not ktichy. We will return. With friends.
We had a wonderful time. Everything we needed was available. I deffinately recommend this modern and upgraded property. 103 condo
Excellent place to stay. This unit has the best views. Extremely clean - it is exactly as described. Figuring out the key can be confusing - once you get your key - go to the elevator and it will open into your unit.
.....was amazing. We only stayed two nights, first just my husband and I and the second with two other couples. It was more than spacious enough, comfortable bedding, reliable wi-fi.
Many IKEA furnishings, (nice IKEA not the cheap college dorm-room stuff.) The bed's mattress was amazing, super comfortable. The showers had decent water pressure and soap/conditioner dispensers in case you forget yours.
The kitchen was stocked with the basics, including a blender and a coffee grinder. The plates/mugs/bowls/silverware were nice quality but some of the other utensils were cheaper. Totally doable, but if you're staying for a week+ and making 1/2+ your meals you may want to bring a few extras from home. I would also recommend bringing some groceries with you. Everything local is really pricey, and while I'm all about supporting the locals for meat and dairy, $5 for a small bottle salad dressing is just ridiculous.
There is an iPod dock but it is the old adapter, we assumed it would be and brought our bluetooth speakers, but just FYI if you have the iPhone5 it will not be compatible.
Immediate beach access, wasn't crowded at all when we were there in April. Dogs playing, kites flying, bonfires going. It was amazing. Heavenly. The perfect relaxing coast getaway. Rockaway as a town is a little run-down, but it keeps it a great area to get away and relax, but is within driving distance to many great things.
You could hear outside if all the windows were open, but when windows were shut (or only opening the ocean-side windows) the condo was really quiet. It was so wonderful to be able to open the windows and doors and get a breeze flowing, hear the ocean crash. The only downside to visiting in winter weather is that it takes a while to warm the place back up.
This place was amazing. We plan on being back this summer. Vacasa has been a great company to rent through so far we've been so happy with each place we have booked through them. The information on the site has never been misleading.
I would definitely return to this place. The view was amazing and the kitchen was more than capable for cooking. The beds were comfortable and coming off of a week in a hotel were a welcome change. I would definitely recommend this location, it was right on the beach and we were a quick drive to everything. Had the weather been better we would have used the bikes but Oregon weather is what it is.
The location and views of this property were the best I've had! The condo was nice and had what we needed to enjoy our stay.
This place is beautiful. You are right on the beach and it is very private, even though there are other units around you. The furnishings are modern and new and the kitchen has everything you need and more! Having a washer /dryer was great!It is in a perfect location to make short trips to Cannon Beach or Seaside. I canÂ´t wait to come back! Thank you for a great birthday weekend!
Beautiful place to stay, relax and enjoy the view.
I will stay here again next time for sure.
Except for a couple of things, the property is quite wonderful. The view from 103 is AMAZING! Nice big windows. Great access to the beach. Nice clean beach to walk, even in the rain.:) Nice to be able to have our dog with us. The location of the condo was great. Quick drives to Cannon Beach to the north or Gharibaldi and Tillamook to the south. Keep in mind, there is not a lot to do in Rockaway, it is all about the getaway to the beach for relaxation. Take a good book, movie or games with you.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and managed to relax. That's what vacations are for!
The road directions were wrong. You do not turn left on NW 21st. Maybe that street used to connect with NW 23rd but it no longer does. Correct directions: Turn left on NW 23rd right into parking lot of units.
The shower in the master bath has so little pressure that it takes "hours" to rinse off. In the MB bath tub hot and cold plumbing are incorretly plumbed. Hot is on the right, cold on the left. Also -- If you want people to use the dispensers in the Master Bath shower then you must LABEL the dispensers. Don't know what was in each of them. Otherwise everything was very well thought out. Kitchen was amazing---all the critical kitchen tools were supplied plus all the right pots and pans and serving dishes. We will definitely be back. Thank you very much for a terrific Thanksgiving vacation.
We had everything we needed...we cooked amazing meals using fresh seafood, we took walks on the beach and flew a kite. You could breathe and relax in comfort.
This are high end modern condos with floor to ceiling windows (the fancy German engineered kind you'd see in the Pearl). The views are spectacular, and the beach access couldn't be easier.
Supremely beautiful views from the living and dining areas of the property. Easy access to the beach for elderly. Wonderful sunset views. Great surprise for providing soaps for the laundry, kitchen and bath areas and coffee in the kitchen. Had a marvelous time. Thank you so very much.
The condo was really lovely. Everything was modern and comfortable. For those people who really like to cook (and cooking at home is the best option in Rockaway-not a dining mecca), bring your own knives, salad spinner, a larger saute pan, casseroles, etc. The cooking equipment is all Ikea and pretty marginal like most rentals...
We walked about 3 to 6 miles a day and early gets the better shells. Great time Thankyou Jim And Sandy
When you walk in and see the floor to ceiling view of surf and sky, you know you're in the right place to relax and get some perspective on life :)
amazing view!!! great roomy showers. great linen on the beds
This place was amazing, I had an unforgettable trip. It is literally steps from the beach, and the large windows makes it so peaceful. It was everything I could have wished for but better. I loved having a washer and dryer and a full kitchen. The elevator also made it so nice to bring stuff in and out. I will defiantly be back!
