If you're looking for an unforgettable vacation on the Oregon Coast, you can't go wrong with this adorable cottage in the heart of Rockaway Beach! The interior of this home is bright and modern, with homey touches that create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Originally built in 1922 but nicely updated throughout, this home retains its character without sacrificing convenience. Upon entering the home, you'll find yourself in a large living room with a comfortable couch and two armchairs. Put your feet up and recover from your travels while you browse the cable channels on the flatscreen TV, or use the free WiFi to find nearby activities to fill your evenings. From the living room, step into the spacious, well-appointed kitchen, where you'll find everything you need to put together a delicious home-cooked meal. In addition to all of the standard appliances and plenty of counter space, there are convenient extras such as a coffee grinder and a toaster. Not to mention, the gas grill will come in handy for more casual cookouts on summer evenings.
Note: This place was formerly known as the Wren’s Nest but is now under new ownership.
What's nearby: Located just two blocks away from the coast and a few minutes' walk from the central business district, this cozy cottage has everything you could need for a laid-back beach vacation. You're just a few minutes' walk away from sand and surf to the west, as well as shopping and dining to the south. Spend an afternoon canoeing or kayaking on Lake Lytle or Crescent Lake, or head to Oswald West State Park or Nehalem Bay State Park for hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, and more. Amateur anglers and fishing enthusiasts alike should check out Jetty Fishery for the opportunity to catch their own dinner of Coho salmon, Dungeness crab, or clams. Cook up a seafood feast in the comfort of your home-away-from-home before watching the sun set over the ocean. And if you're looking for a day trip, there are plenty of towns up and down the coast worth visiting, from sleepy Cannon Beach in the north to Tillamook and beyond to the south.

Cute little house just a street away from the beach! Nothing super fancy but has everything you need and is an amazing location in a sleepy little coastal town.
Would definitely stay again!
Isaias Z.Nov 2020
The house was very clean upon arrival and a short walk to the beach, which is just want we wanted. Really enjoyed our stay.
Only complaint- which doesn’t really affect condition of the home, but upon arrival we were given the wrong key code to enter the home so we sat on hold for 25-30 mins waiting for Vacasa support to find the right key code so we could get in.
Thank you for staying with us, Isaias. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we apologize for the delay upon your arrival. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. Very comfortable and a nice lay out. Rockaway is a great place to at away.
MayRene M.Aug 2020
Not enough toilet paper or garbage sacks were provided for a week long stay. The floors also were dirty and we had to sweep. Bonus is that it is close to the beach and downtown.
Hi MayRene! Thank you for your review. We value your feedback regarding the cleanliness and inventory of the home and are working with our local staff to address these concerns. We hope to host you again in the future!

We really enjoyed our stay at Wren's Nest. The place is neat, clean, comfortable, and close to the ocean walks at Rockaway Beach! It is restful and we look forward to doing it again!

House: Roomy and comfortable for 3 of us
Location: Able to walk to nearby shops and establishments, as well as a short drive down to Garibaldi to get on the bay for fishing and crabbing.

This house was fantastic. My husband, 2 year old son and I loved this home. 3 beds and a pull out couch bed. 2 bathrooms, washer dryer, all the appliances you can possibly need. TV in living room and in 1 bedroom, xbox, cable, toys, games. It has everything you need. 2 blocks from the beach. The beach is not crowded. A grocery store in Manzanita is located just 5 miles away. You can get fresh crab and clams to cook at home just another 2 miles away. We will definitely be coming here again and bringing the pups along.
Mary A. Q.Sep 2019
Had a great time with family, cute comfy home, lot’s of great places to eat in Rockaway on their Main Street. The beach is amazing and home dog friendly (well behaved dogs!). Would stay here again.
Judy W.Aug 2019
House was well furnished and comfortable. There were a few minor issues with broken windows and lacking curtains that are easily fixed. Loved the proximity to the beach.
Sherri M.Jul 2019
The house was perfect for our needs and so close to the beach.
M T.Mar 2019
Loved how comfortable the home was! Spacious and well stocked with cookware, dishes and linens. Loved proximity to beach, treasure shop and great fish & chips.
Michael D.Feb 2019
Adorable little cottage with private bedrooms large enough to not feel cramped and community rooms large enough to host games and diners.
Mark C.Dec 2018
We had a great stay right before Christmas for three nights. The house was clean, comfortable and full of everything you need to make meals in. The beds were cozy and the living room was perfect for family movie nights. The house is walkable to the beach, so we took a walk each morning. We highly recommend staying at Wren’s Nest when you’re in Rockaway Beach!
Leslie N.Nov 2018
The home was very nice and the location with easy access to the beach was great. The weather was great the week we were there and we couldn't have asked for a nicer way to kick off our retirement. We would definitely stay at this home again in Rockaway Beach.
Courtney W.Sep 2018

This home was by far the best I have ever rented! Exceptionally clean, lots of room, comfy beds and everything was as advertised. Loved it!!!
Sharai E.Jul 2018
Stayed here with our 2 teenaged kids over the 4th of July. The house is lovely and very clean. Very spacious and comfortable living room with plenty of seating. The large couch is white, which made us a little nervous, so we kept a sheet over it the whole time. The only thing we really missed was a patio or deck on which to sit outside, and a view. Location is very close to the beach and all the shops and restaurants are in walking distance.
Jessica B.Jul 2018
3 bedrooms with plenty of room to spread out. Very clean, with lots of extras, including linens, a fully stocked kitchen, and beach chairs and toys. 1 block from the beach. It was too cold to swim, but beautiful to see and do some beach combing.
Katherine M.Jun 2018
Clean, bright, welcoming, very close to the beach, super nice neighbors, quiet, peaceful, a place to relax and recharge. Most comfortable couch ever. Comfortable beds and furniture. Good wifi. Functional bathrooms and appliances. My 2 sisters and I adored it. Every amenity you might need. We miss it already.
Melissa M.May 2018
We had a really wonderful trip to this house! It is spacious, clean, and well stocked. The beach is just a couple minutes out the back door, as well as restaurants and a couple stores within walking distance. I highly recommend this location!
Brandy K.May 2018
We really enjoyed our stay and loved how close it is to the beach just a quick 2 minute walk. Very clean and spacious for a small group.

Spacious accommodations and close to the beach.
Dave M.Dec 2017
We were overall impressed with the kitchen and living space size and layout. We would stay here again in the future.
Karissa R.Dec 2017
Beds were wonderful, plenty of warm linens and extras too. House warms easily and well in winter. Very clean. Great showers. Access to beach is perfect. Town cafes and shops are right there !
Valerie V.Nov 2017
House location was convenient to Rockaway and the beach but nothing to get too excited about. The house was cute and well appointed but had more mold in it than the average house on the Oregon Coast. It is not a house I would recommend for taller or larger people, we are average to small, as the shower and beds were small. But it was a cute house and had everything we needed for a fun weekend. Within walking distance of the main attractions in Rockaway.
Housekeeping has performed a walk-through of the home to address any mold issues they might find. Thank you!
Tawana B.Sep 2017
We had a great girls weekend in this home! It was close to the beach and had cute little shops to browse in. There are some yummy coffee shops in town too!
Esther M.Sep 2017
This home was clean and had a well - stocked kitchen. It is a short walk to the beach, but you can't actually see the water from the home.
Bobbie H.Sep 2017
It was a wonderful treat to stay at the Wren beach home at Rockaway Beach, OR.
The home was clean and comfortable. It was great to have our two granddaughters (10 & 12) up stairs in their own rooms which were very nice. Plenty of space to hang out, play games and cards, interact yet still have privacy. Loved the open and bright dining area adjoined to the kitchen. We were able to walk every where: catch the train, pick up a few groceries, get ice cream and taffy, have pizza for dinner. It was nice to have a very short walk to the beach to catch the sunsets as well as going back and forth to the beach. Relatively quiet beach that provided the total beach experience: walking, playing, building, reading and relaxing. We would come here again.
Tina D.Jul 2017
This place was clean, comfy, and quiet. The short walk to the beach was great. There is a great pizza place across the street and all of the locals were very friendly and helpful.
Barabara M.Jul 2017
There is no ocean view, however the access to the beach is superb. Nice little house off the main road yet steps to bakery and local shops. Quiet, cozy, and convenient.
