Modern, dog-friendly beach home w/ private hot tub and sweeping oceanfront views
Beautifully furnished and exceptionally cozy, this Rockaway Beach vacation rental invites you to kick back and relax with stunning oceanfront views, bright and spacious rooms, and plenty of modern conveniences, including a hot tub. Bring your family, or a group of up to six, for a most rejuvenating getaway on the Northern Oregon Coast!
If you’re looking for a beachside home with quick access to town attractions, this is your place! Its oceanfront location means you can easily explore the sandy shore, stroll down the seven-mile-long beach, and watch spectacular sunsets on clear nights. But don’t limit your exploring just to the beach - take a short walk to discover souvenir shops and quaint eateries along Highway 101, or fish for trout, swim, and kayak in Lake Lytle.
A modern beach home with comfortable furnishings, sweeping views of the coastline, and artful decor, Surftide Cottage is an adorable home away from home. Enter into the main floor of this bi-level home and you’ll see a lovely open floor plan with a spacious living area, a dining nook, a kitchen area, and one of three bedrooms.
A bit tired from your travels? Crack open a favorite beverage and settle into the living area’s comfy seating, which includes bright orange and brown leather couches. Kick off your shoes, flip on the TV, and enjoy a group movie thanks to the Blu-ray player and DVD library (located in the hallway closet). The flatscreen TV is also cable- and Netflix-equipped, so catch up on all your favorite series.
For even more entertainment, break out the home’s badminton set and have a fun tournament, or take out any of the board games to play with your group. On chilly days, throw some logs into the fireplace and quickly warm the room with a fire. You’ll easily fall into a relaxed mood thanks to the nautical ambiance created by the captain’s wheel and vaulted wood beam ceilings resembling an old wooden ship’s hull.
When it’s time to eat, head into the kitchen, just around the corner from the living area, to whip up a fresh, homemade meal. Use its modern appliances, a variety of cookware, and ample countertops for quick meal prep and cleanup. Enjoy shared meals at the kitchen table, which, with two seats and benches, will easily provide enough seating for your whole group.
Pair fresh tuna steaks, Dungeness crab, or other local delicacies with a fine Oregon pinot, then head onto the back deck with panoramic views, and you have a recipe for beachside bliss! Or create your meal outside on the gas grill.
Afterwards, take a leisurely stroll down the beach to hunt seashells deposited by the surf, or back indoors for more game playing in the second-floor loft space. You could also take out your laptop and use the WiFi to plan your next adventures, or freshen up any laundry in the washer/dryer.
At the end of an eventful day of sightseeing along the coast and in town, retire for restful sleep in any of the home’s three bedrooms. Up to eight guests (six adults maximum) are accommodated on queen beds in two rooms, one of which is upstairs and the other downstairs. Also upstairs is a set of twin beds in a third room, and there's also a sofabed, should you need extra sleeping space. Modestly furnished with coastal decor, items like nightstands, reading lamps, and area lighting, the bedrooms are simple and clean, perfect for getting a great night’s sleep. The family dog is also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.
Wake up to abundant natural light streaming in through bedroom picture windows, ready for a new day of Rockaway Beach adventures. Start off with a visit to Ring of Fire Glassworks (one and a half miles south) for a glassblowing lesson with a local artist. Brew some hot cocoa and take the whole family for a leisurely stroll down the Rockaway Beach Wayside where you can view interesting rock formations, including the iconic Twin Rocks, and hunt for clams and other hidden treasures brought in with the tide. You could pick up freshly harvested clams and oysters at the Jetty Marina (just two and a half miles north), where you could also rent a boat or crab pots for a day of coastal fun on Nehalem Bay.
In the mood for a fun day trip? Grab your binoculars and a camera for wildlife viewing and snapping photos of pristine coastal wetlands at Nehalem Bay State Park (parking access is just 13 miles north), or go just a bit farther north to surf on Short Sands Beach in Oswald West State Park (15 miles north). Sure to be fun for the whole family, a visit to the world-famous Tillamook Cheese Factory (24 miles south) will have you sampling fresh cheeses and delicious ice cream on a tour of the huge facility.
Modern beach living meets small-town charm when you stay at this Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental. Leave your worries behind, but bring along your sense of adventure when you book this wonderful home today!
It’s small, but we knew that going in. Our family of 5 squeezes into the bathroom, but the bedrooms worked great. Location was wonderful. Beach wasn’t crowded at all. Even on the 4th it wasn’t bad. Fireworks were beautiful. Weather was great. We’d love to come back!
Beautiful views and access to the beach.Lots of sleeping space.
Perfect location & view, lovely house. Can't wait to stay again!
We loved everything about this beach house. We will definitely be vrboing this property again. We already miss hearing the ocean waves lulling us to sleep.
We absolutely loved our stay at this beach home. Every time we returned from exploring the coast we asked ourselves why we left the house in the first place. The views were breathtaking and the beach is literally outside the door. We would love to stay here again. Thank you for making our vacation special!
The decor was awesome, the house was clean, the beach was SO close. Perfect weather too!
Nice location. Felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. Great for families. Hot tub worked great and was hot and ready to go when we used it. Coffee filters didn't fit the coffee maker and it did have a weird smell near the garage but didn't affect the whole house.
First - the photos are REALLY generous in terms of the amount of space - it looks way larger in the pictures than it actually is. But - you won't mind. The amount of light that comes in the huge windows, the thoughtful and fun decor, and the expansive views more than make up for the lack of space. Plus, with the beach literally steps away from the door - you won't spend a whole lot of time inside!
The kitchen is tiny, but surprisingly well stocked. Even the appliances are miniature - the fridge and dishwasher are comically small. But, this is more than made up for in the other amenities - great TV, DVD player and lots of movies, several games, gaming system, and the best hammock ever (inside!).
Location is everything - if you are looking for a shopping or foodie experience, Rockaway may not be the place for you. If you are looking for a charming cottage literally on the beach, with unparalleled access to surf and sand, look no further.
We stayed over Thanksgiving with four adults, two teens and two dogs. It was cozy, but the house had everything we needed.
College is the perfect size for small family hot tub is wonderful perfect location if you like Rockaway Beach
House was clean and comfortable beds were outstanding nice few days just chilling on the coast
We loved everything about the house and location. It was perfect in every way. We will plan the exact same vacation in this same home again and again. ❤️❤️❤️
The location is obviously great, right on the beach, without any crowds, even at the end of August. My children had a great time, and we enjoyed the nooks with this house. no complaints aside from a fan we could not figure out how to turn off.
We loved this cute little cottage and really enjoyed our stay. It is small but fine for our family of four. My kids loved the hammock. The only feedback I have is that I think the cleaning crew could do a better job, it seemed like they rushed through the cleaning in my opinion. The beds were comfortable with the exception of the twin bunk beds, they definitely could use better mattresses. Loved the quaint decor and would stay here again. Thank you!
The house has everything you need for a family vacation in a stunning setting right by the beach. Everything worked great, was immaculate, you could see lots of attention to detail. The house has the feel of a home, it is so nicely decorated. Thanks for a great stay!
I took my two teenage boys for a 2 night excursion in Rockaway Beach. The house was the perfect size for the 3 of us. It had everything we needed, and being beach front was a definite plus. Beautiful views out of those windows!
We had a wonderful time in the house. It is a perfect beach house. We enjoyed several beautiful sunsets from the deck and enjoyed the kitchen amenities for several meals.
This is the 2nd time we stay at this home, we love the location, literally right on beach. Love sitting at kitchen table and seeing out to ocean or simply going out onto deck and just sitting there watching the sunset.
This was my second time staying at this particular house. They made some nice improvements and upgrades that made it even better. It's always clean and cozy.
Cozy, clean and comfortable. Great view from the hot tub.
This place was the perfect getaway! I will be coming back! I went with my best friend and her 3 kids and my dog! It has all the room and things you could need or want! The only bad that i can say is my car was 3 inches or so too big to fit in the garage. That made parking a little tricky with 2 cars. But we made it work and so could you.
Pros: proximity to the beach, hammocks, decor, hot tub, cleanliness, perfect for the kids (bunk beds were adorable) telescope was a nice, deck, and easy to check in/check out
Cons: no bath tub (and only one shower) parking was less than ideal if you have more than one car, small kitchen (not as open as I would have liked)
Overall we loved the house and will be planning another trip there :)
It was our last family vacation before my son deployed to Japan for the Air Force for 2 years, and it was perfect! Walking in, though small, was cozy... And that ocean view! We hot tubbed, played games, took long beach walks where we saw 2 bald eagles, and sea lions! Loved it and will return! ❤
Very cute little house right on the beach. We loved being able to walk just a few feet to have our toes in the sand! House was well stocked and had plenty of room for 4 adults.
We enjoyed this cute beach house, great view of the ocean.
We stayed over 3 nights and loved our time there. Very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was especially well equipped. We definitely would come again!
Bedding and accommodations were perfect. Kitchen was well set up. The family room needs a little update with comfortable seating. Hot tub was awesome. Really enjoyed our stay.
Great place and amazing location. We enjoyed our girls weekend, and would love to come back soon. Only reason I gave 4 stars was because it was clear the place had not been cleaned before we arrived. We had to go buy toilet paper and paper towels, no dish washer soap to do dishes, and I had to pick up a dirty womans feminine product off the bathroom floor. I hope you have better luck with your cleaning company in the future.
We are so sorry and embarrassed to see the state this guest found the home in and wish they had contacted us as soon as they discovered the mess. We have followed-up with housekeeping and done further training. Thanks!
This house is perfectly located. Amazing views and easy beach access!
We had a bit of a rough start when the access code didn't work, we had to call for help and when they couldn't fix it over the phone they sent someone over to help. We were amazed at how quickly someone showed up and let us in.. We were then able to settle in and enjoy the majestic view of the ocean and easy access to the beach. The house had all the amenities we needed. Will definitely consider returning!
Great getaway, would’ve been small for 5 people as only 1 full bath but overall loved it.
Clean, cozy, and very well stocked!!
This is a lovely home, nicely styled with a focus on relaxing. We really appreciated the hammock in the loft with views of the ocean. The beds were all very comfortable with quality linens. The kitchen is small, but has everything you need. The hot tub was not clean for our visit. That was our only disappointment.
We apologize if we somehow missed servicing the hot tub before this visit and wish the guest had called. We'll make sure to get it addressed!
We stayed the weekend here, and had an amazing time. The property is very dog-friendly, from resilient harwood floors to an enclosed deck (assuming your dog isn’t a jumper). Combine that with an updated kitchen, stellar beds & linens, and the hot tub - plus proximity to the beach - and you have an idyllic getaway. Absolutely would stay here again.
Would definitely stay here again!
We came here on a weekend after a major storm, to discover there were direct views from the cottage to the ocean, complete with very large waves. The heating/cooling unit was great (it was pretty chilly outside when we went and the heat was welcome!), but we did need the portable radiator in the upstairs bedrooms.
Be aware the furniture layout has changed somewhat from the 3D tour. All the downstairs floors are hardwood-facsimile vinyl (no carpets). The TV is now a flatscreen above the fireplace. The living room corner cabinet has been removed and now has a hanging hammock chair swing. There is a telescope for sea and star-watching. The microwave is in a cupboard next to the fridge instead of on the counter (and the kitchen is postage stamp-sized, no more than 2 people in there at a time!). The fridge and stove have been updated and are VERY nice (double oven and 5 burners!). Upstairs, there is a hammock in place of the card table on the landing, and a daybed outside the two bedrooms. The hot tub is below the back deck and has a great ocean view!
Overall the house is well appointed for 4-6 people, a bit of a squeeze for more. This house is very dog-friendly, and includes a built in kennel under the stairs. Google Maps thinks that the house is down the street near the Surftide Motel, but it's actually off 13th. The gravel roads are very narrow, so there really isn't any street parking to speak of except right in front of the garage, 1-2 vehicles at a maximum. Its location makes walking to town feasible in warmer weather, but a 20-minute walk in the pouring rain wasn't as much fun.
Beach access would normally have been excellent, but the recent storm washed away about 1/3 of the dunes, leaving a 5-foot cliff where the trail had been. Otherwise a great stormy weekend for wave-watching! We enjoyed ourselves very much, and would visit again, given the chance!
The view and where the property sits is amazing. The property itself was pretty rustic. Very small bedrooms, and just the overall condition was less than any of the other places I have stayed at with Vacasa. Kudos to the photographer for making it look like the Ritz on the website.
This was a very beautiful, clean home in a great location. The beach was amazing, the house was comfortable and easy to enjoy time in. It was stocked well and worked perfectly for our family.
The ambiance, the view and of course the hot tub...... what else could you ask for? Will be back asap!
Perfect for a small family, really great location.
If you bring your dog on trips with you, this is the rental for you. It is so welcoming for our furry family members with doggy cookies in the cookie jar, a jar of pooo bags for the beach, a basket of balls to play with, a squeaky toy and a great dog bed. Under the stairs in the kitchen there's a great kennel too if your dog needs an enclosed spot. It's likely that you will have never felt so comfortable and in love with bringing your dog on vacation until you stay here.
I'm sure this rental is great for those without a dog. We had our 4 kids with us too. They all loved it. Hot tub was great--sand toys--beach access and the games and wii!!
You'll tell your friends how awesome it is for sure :) We plan to go back again for sure.
I love how this little home is right on the beach with the big tall windows in the living room to look out at the ocean from the house or on the deck. I also loved how accommodating it is for people who bring their dogs. Our dogs had a wonderful time just as we did! We will definitely be back.
This Home has a Great view of the Ocean but only one car garage. If you take two
cars you have to park in front of the garage on a very narrow gravel road.
I couldn't have picked a better spot for my 3 little ones. The view and vibe were relaxing and fun for all of us. Easy to grill healthy meals while watching the little ones enjoy the sand. The house was beautifully decorated for vacationing families.
Great location with easy beach access. House fit our family of 4 perfectly. Directions were incorrect...turn on 13th, not 11th. :)
A very charming house with excellent access to beach. Kids enjoyed playing with a wide variety of supplied kites.
We loved this beach cabin and found it quite comfortable for a family of 4. It is conveniently located on the beach and nearly every room has a view if the beach. The house is well equipped and has a fun decorating vibe. It is worth the extra money to be steps from the beach.
Great location with great beach access.
You can spend all day watching the ocean and walking along the beach here. House was very clean and had what I would call "hipster frosting" on a funky house. The vaulted ceilings/windows facing the ocean filled the interior with light.
This area is a total hidden gem.
Like the title says perfect location, beach is stunning & house is exactly what a beach house should be... warm, cozy & comfy!!
Even though you approach the house from its less attractive backside, the view out the front is wonderful. You can sit inside or on the deck and watch the waves. You can go out the living room sliding door and walk right out on the beach. It is great for taking morning walks and watching the gulls sweep by. Have a relaxing time!
Great view. Bedrooms really small.
We could not have been happier with our stay. I agree with other reviews, that I want this place kept a secret! We were there during uncertain weather, and loved utilizing the fireplace, watching movies, ordering pizza and staring at the waves through the huge windows. Sure, Rockaway beach isn't as trendy or busy as Manzanita or Cannon beach. But the great thing about this location is that you can have what feels like YOUR OWN beach, but still be only a short drive away from day-trip worthy locations (or even just for dinner)! We loved the fireplace and the surround sound. While watching Rouge One, my ten year old was actually worried that it was going to cause a noise violation. :) The location right on the beach just cannot be beat. Our kids would go play and we would sit on the deck or even inside and still be able to see them. We plan on returning the summer. We don't get away very often, and I was nervous to spend the money on somewhere I hadn't seen. But it was worth every penny.
Well kept house with great taste and feet from the beach. Lovely!
We loved this house! Location was perfect. Rockaway is such a cute little town. Rain or shine I was out on that front porch every morning. I do not recommend this house for families with young children, we were there celebrating our youngests first birthday. I went for location, I booked it before he started walking, stairs are not to code, a bit scary. Also, there's no bathtub. The bedroom upstairs my husband and I stayed it.... every night I smelt cologne, I'm assuming it was on the comforter?? Either way, the house overall was very well stocked, beautiful view, and clean. We had so much fun. I would book this home again, as an adult only trip.
Beautiful view, nice ammentities. Great!
We spend every post holiday week at the Oregon Coast, always trying different units. This unit was in a beautiful location. The house was appointed nicely and the kitchen was a dream.
However, the baseboard heater in the living room was broken. Space heaters were provided but took two hours to reach a comfortable level. We had to wear our down coats in the morning.
We would not stay here again.
When we had a problem with the heat the agent was quick to respond and make us comfortable. She was very attentive to our needs and was most pleasant.
This place was so much better than I ever could have imagined! We did check out beaches along the coast but as far as staying at one ours was the most beautiful for the fact that when you wake up it's right there without anything blocking your view and hardly any people on it. The house was smaller than what the impression the pictures gave but that only added to the coziness of it all. I just love love love this place and recommend it to anyone who wants to be in a clean beautiful house with an absolutely stunning view, away from the hustle and bustle that the popular beaches had.
Highly recommend, plan to stay there again. Cute and comfortable place, nicely furnished, spectacular beach view and access.
What an amazing view and the beach is just steps away from your house.
We really enjoyed our stay at this property! The view from the house is amazing and with the open layout can be seen from most of the house! Loved the direct beach access! At high tide the water is practically at the back porch. The property was very clean and well maintained, the only issue we had was with the DVD player which did not work properly and was not replaced during our stay. Would highly recommend and will return!
The best beach front view we have ever had. This house was great for our family of five.
Great location! Easy to get around. Loved that there were beach toys. The view was beautiful.
This is a perfect beach house. Easy very close path down to the beach! Lots of cooking utensils- we needed nothing! The owner thought of everything anyonr would need to cook with including good knives. The best stocked kitchen we have had on any beach rental. Thank you!
Stayed here for my Bachelorette party weekend and it was perfect!! Very clean and comfortable.
The location was great and the view was spectacular. Any closer and you would be in the water. We had a few concerns at the beginning but those were addressed. I would definitely recommend this location in Rockaway Beach.
Great place with a beautiful view and wonderful access to the beach!
Cute town, not too busy. We had a great time kite flying on the beach and found it a great for kids with a cute playground in the centre of town. Beach was a ton of fun - lots of jellyfish and shells to find.
it is a beautiful home, thoughtful finishing, and great set up for a family!
Loved the view - the porch was perfect for viewing the meteor shower!
The Tillamook Cheese factory was fun - about 20 minutes away!
Not much option for groceries in town - we did our shopping at the Fred Meyer in Tillamook.
The location is amazing! You are close as you can be to the beach without actually being ON the beach itself. It was not as crowded as other nearby beaches. The home is well furnished. They had pretty much all the kitchen supplies you could need. There is also an extra freezer/fridge unit in the garage. There is a large washer and dryer. The dishwasher is the smallest dishwasher I have ever seen, but not a huge deal. They supplied dish soap and sponges. Also shampoo/conditioner, bar soap, towels. In the garage was also kites, net, badminton, chairs, a charcoal grill, propane grill, beach toys. We loved this place!
Everything worked house was pretty clean nice beach getaway
It was so fun to have a property right on the beach. With the kids this was a great experience
Fantastic location as Rockaway has a few hidden treasures and can't beat the beach access! Great views and plenty of room for our group of 3 (we didn't need the third bedroom).
The house was as advertised and had everything we needed. The neighbors are pretty much right on top of you but they weren't home most of the time we were there so it wasn't an issue. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back in the future.
We will definitely be back.. Loved the location, location, location
My family and I enjoyed our weekend in Rockaway, loved the fact that the back deck is literally on the beach. Loved walking in the early morning and digging up the clams (shells) and enjoying the fresh morning air. Accommodates easily a family of 8.
This was the cutest little beach house, and we wouldn't change a thing about it! It was well-stocked and maintained with everything you need in a kitchen, as well as games, blankets for cuddling, books, movies, etc. The ocean view is amazing, the beach is perfect, and we especially loved the warmth of the wood-burning stove. We loved this place and it will go down as one of our favorites.
Great place! Right on the beach! Perfect location if you are looking to just relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach!
We had a great time and really enjoyed this home!
Everything in the house was amazing! So cozy, that it definitely felt like a second home of mine. The kitchen was completely stocked up with everything I needed for absolutely any home cooked meal. The bedrooms were so nice and clean upon arrival. The view from the loft was absolutely amazing! So nice to find extra bedding and blankets when I wanted to lay out on the beach. The dishwasher was so petite!
The house was great for our time at the beach. Big enough for 5 adults and 3 little ones.
The beach toys in the garage wad a plus and the view from both stories is gorgeous! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and we cooked a lot. Quiet and just a few minutes out of town. We look forward to coming back !
First of all kudos to Vacasa Team. You never disappoint us and always be there if we need anything, This house is simply a great spot. We enjoyed our weeked with friends and there are lot of stuff available at the property. You chave kites, football, card games, board games, books, blu ray DVDs, and a patio looking right at the waves. Definitely a top spot and worth the green.
Great ocean front location! kitchen is small but well supplied.
Would accommodate six comfortably.
This house was perfect. Beautiful views and 25 steps from the beach. My husband and I could enjoy peace and quiet while reading and keep an eye on our daughter who was playing on the beach. The house is well appointed and decorated in a modern and youthful style. Graffiti inspired pieces, skateboards, and modern beach sketches. Not kitschy or overly beachy at all. This property is a great value and our family will be enjoying time here again!
As grandparents, the location, beach acces, accommodations and toys were great.
This property is very nicely situated. We were looking for a quiet get away, we found exactly that. Maybe because our visit was in the off season, but in any case we enjoyed the low key atmosphere in Rockaway. The direct beach access is a real plus. We will recommend to our family and friends.
We loved our stay in this house. It was bright and open and did not feel small at all. Extremely easy beach access right out your door which was perfect. Centrally located to many activities such as hiking, shopping, putt putt golfing, etc..We traveled from Tillamook to cannon beach exploring while we were there. The home has pretty much everything you need. Plenty of extra bedding and towels. We didn't run out of anything. Bring your own Tin Foil, Plastic Wrap, bags, etc..spices..but as far as cutlery, cookware, it had almost everything. We would rent this house again in a heartbeat.
This place had it all! The kitchen was extremely well stocked with cooking pans, baking dishes, serving dishes, everything. There was so much storage in this not-so-roomy house. There were extra blankets and towels, so many beach toys and chairs in the garage. The furniture was great, the deck was amazing! The house has incredible two story views! There is internet, cable, a grill, laundry, a tiny dishwasher and very private and easy beach access. My only complaint was getting a hold of Vacasa during our stay due to a pipe burst in the kitchen. Eventually we were able to get in contact with someone and they came out to fix it within a couple hours. Overall, really wonderful experience!
