We loved this home! Beautiful decor, easy beach access, super dog friendly! We can’t wait to go back next year!!!

The decor of all the rooms is wonderful with the whale theme throughout. The kitchen was well equipped and the three eating areas would provide for a family gathering with plenty of plates and utensils. All of the appliances worked well and the master bed was very comfortable. It was nice to be able to park in a garage and to have use of the sand toys and two beach chairs. There were plenty of beach and bath towels but more kitchen towels were needed. The barbecue worked well; we did not use the wood burning stove. Our grandson loved discovering the drawer of trains and track in the bunk room. The house was very clean, though I would recommend a cleaning of all of the baseboards during a time of deep cleaning. We will want to bring our grandkids here again in the future.

Everything was as I remembered from our stay June 2020, and weather was even better. Alas, dishwasher quit working w/ 2nd load in it, repair folks called our HOME, not cell, so no fix
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Irene! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. Apologies for the inconvenience concerning the dishwasher. Repairs have been scheduled. We hope to host you again!
David V. Sep 2021
Very nice house, clean and well kept. Ocean view from the deck and a 2 minute walk to the beach. Only issues we had were that the tv remote was broken and they only left us perhaps 2 trash bags and 2 rounds of detergent for the dishwasher, not nearly enough for a party of 11 for 3 nights. I recommend bringing your own as we had to go out and buy some. Just little things, aside from that it was excellent.
Manager response:
Hello, David! Thank you for choosing to stay with us. It was our pleasure hosting you and we are glad you enjoyed our home and its convenient location. We apologize for the broken TV remote. A new one has been ordered and will arrive soon. We stock our homes with an initial supply of cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper products. Once these supplies run out it is the responsibility of our guests to provide any additional supplies throughout the remainder of their stay. We apologize for the inconvenience this caused and we look forward to hosting you again!

We’d loved our stay at The Whaler. Comfortable, perfect amount of space for our family of four plus Grandma and Grandpa. Super easy access to the beach, and great view of the sunset in the evening.
James A. Aug 2021
We've stayed at this house several times over the years and have fond family memories. It feels like a family vacation home. We started with our children and now we're sharing it with our grandchildren. The short walk to the beach is so convenient for all to come and go. So glad we got to spend family time together and share a wonderful home that feels like it's our family's. This is my happy place!
Kathleen A. Aug 2021
it was awsome
Penny S. Jul 2021
So nice to rent a house that is as good in person as it is in pictures. Very well stocked kitchen, good space, good location.
Mark S. Jul 2021
This home had everything we needed for our trip to Rockaway Beach. The kitchen was well-stocked and there were plenty of towels. We loved the view of the ocean!
Cheryll C. May 2021
What I love about this house --- dog friendly, just a block away from the beach access, on a quiet street away from the main road, has ocean view, the house is clean and accommodates large number of people plus 2-parking garage. We enjoyed our stay here. I would definitely recommend this place! We are looking forward to staying at this property again.
Patrick L. Dec 2020
2nd time visiting this place. it is modern and very roomy. Great kitchen for cooking. Really well located. we love the place and will stay again.
Brett H. Nov 2020
Smart designed home; refreshing ocean view.
Mike W. Nov 2020
We loved the close proximity to the beach, to hikes at Neahakanie Mountain, and crabing in Nehalem Bay. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was great for cooking for our group. Love that it's dog friendly too!
Thad L. Oct 2020
had a nice time quiet neighbor hood enjoyed our stay
Ryan S. Oct 2020
This house is beachy cute from top to bottom. Extra clean and all new updates. Pictures do not do justice, there is a perfect view of the ocean and walking there takes 2 or 3 minutes. Definitely going back!
Anne K. Aug 2020
We lived the view from the cozy couch, the spaciousness, and the super fluffy bath mats!
kathleen a. Aug 2020
It was awsome. The views were incredible. It had everything we needed. It was clean affordable and convenient. It was the best place I have ever stayed.
Angela L. Jul 2020
The house was open and bright with great views of the ocean. Loved our stay there. Only thing I would suggest is to put blinds in the open windows upstairs.
MICHAEL R. Jul 2020
This house had all the space we needed for our family of 11 and we never felt like we were on top of each other. We took advantage of the movies, puzzles and books provided. The couch is so comfortable with a great view of the ocean waves. The kitchen is large and has everything you could need for cooking at home. The grill worked fantastic, but it hadn't been cleaned in a long time. They provide plenty of linens and the beds are really comfortable. Housekeeping could be improved as we found lots of dust bunnies under the beds and on the stairs. The home is close to everything, but on a quiet street away from the crowds. I recommend accessing the beach from 8th St as it has an easier path. Blinds in the living room would be a nice touch for a little more privacy in the evenings. We just suggest maybe getting lounge or more comfy chairs for enjoying the front deck.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Michael, and letting us know how you enjoyed your Vacasa experience. We will follow-up with housekeeping regarding the oversights you found. We hope to see you again!
Joseph O. Jul 2020
Perfect location for spending time with family in a beautiful, well equipped home and so close to the ocean! We don’t have nearly enough time with our son and his family and this was the perfect location. Lots of space for everyone!
Cathryn F. Jul 2020
Sunset views over the ocean from the deck were spectacular. Updated home very tastefully done. Big kitchen and dining areas that seat 10+ with ease. We loved everything about this home and it’s literally one minute from the beach. Definitely recommend.
Nancy A H. Feb 2020
This house is beautiful and has everything you need! The only downside were the stairs which were difficult to manage since the kitchen is on the 2nd floor. All of us have had or will be having knees replaced, so hauling heavy bags of food up and down the stairs was difficult. Otherwise it is a wonderfully comfortable home!
Aaron B. Feb 2020
I loved this house! It was clean, comfortable, and had beautiful ocean views and was just a 1 minute walk to the beach.
Liliya T. Oct 2019
Had a girls weekend at the house. The house was great! Plenty of space, bedding towels was provided. And it’s just steps away from the beach! Would defiantly recommend it!
Julie E. Sep 2019
Beautiful home for the adults and kids. Took four cousins who don't see the ocean very often (from WI) to the Oregon coast. Less than a block from beach access with ocean views. Well-appointed home with twin bunks for the kids. Loved it.
Weddy s. Aug 2019
Great open concept house with all the tools to entertain with.
My only criticism is the king bed on the second floor, it dips on both sides to the center, so you're rolling to the center when you sleep. I believe the problem is with the box spring. Every thing else is top notch!
Monica M. Aug 2019
The house was adorable. Comfy and inviting. Nice view close to beach access. Had a fun and relaxing time.
Kenny I. Jul 2019
The house is in the heart of Rockaway Beach. It's nice, open and spacious. Plenty of kitchen utensils, plates, cups, etc. The gas grill in the back patio was greatly appreciated. Just a one block walk to the beach. The only downside was that there were no blinds or shades on any of the living room windows. Also, the dryer didn't work, however, that didn't stop my family from having a good time. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.
Manager response:
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home! We're happy to say we've repaired the dryer, so it won't be a problem in the future. We hope to host you again!
Stephanie L. Jul 2019
We had a great day, everything about the place is really well done :-) when we come back up your way we are looking forward to staying at this property again.
Allison A. Jun 2019
The Whaler is bright, beautiful, and comfortable. It's a great location, right across from the beach. I loved hearing the sound of the ocean waves when we left the sliding glass door open. It's easy access to the beach, too, with a path just 2 doors down and across the street. The town of To kaway Beach is nothing to boast about, but the charming town of Cannon Beach is a 40 minute drive up the coast and worth the visit.
Raylene N. Jun 2019
The property was IMMACULATE, the kitchen perfect, and the weather was AMAZING. Okay, you didn't have anything to do with perfect beach weather, but everything else was wonderful. THANK YOU so much! My large family enjoyed our time tremendously.
