Complete with a baby grand piano and the beach at your back door, everyone in your group will be able to find a great ways to enjoy their vacation at Sea Mist, a Rockaway Beach oceanfront home. You'll enjoy the large open kitchen, living room, and dining area with lots of windows and a fireplace. This beach property has been owned by the same family for nearly forty years. This is the kind of place that your family will want to visit and return to over and over again. Wake up to the quiet serene sounds of only the waves, tucked away at the end of the street.

Come home from hiking local trails or after a day relaxing on the beach to the fully equipped kitchen for the chef of your group to prepare dinner. The whole group can dine with the views and serene sounds of Nedonna beach. Before stepping in the home, you can warm up with the hot water of the outdoor shower with two shower heads, one for adults and a lower one for children, dogs, or your sandy toes!

There are two bedrooms and a bunk bed area, with a central bathroom and a separate family area with a half bath for lots of room and comfort. There is also a TV with cable, a Blu-Ray DVD player, a VCR system, and a stereo system in the living area. This is a classic beach house where you can let your hair down, relax, and spend time walking on the beach, exploring, having a beach bonfire, or sitting on the deck and dreaming. The internet in this home is high speed and reliable for a tranquil environment while working from home.

Great location and quiet. Can see ocean and waves from house. Can walk out and sit at edge of dune and watch waves. Beach is 8 foot drop. Clean and beautiful home. Comfortable furniture and beds. Crockpot and griddle and everything you need for cooking. Would definitely recommend this house and will be returning there in future. Wonderful time laughing when seagull pooped on my grown sons head. Thank you for that.
Carol B. Sep 2022
We have visited the Sea Mist for many, many years. It’s privacy and access to the ocean cannot be beat. The home is supplied with everything you could possibly need.

Melanie G. Aug 2022
We love the location and the privacy of the backyard.
Kelsey H. Jul 2022
I’d had seen many good reviews. But I would not stay again.
I traveled with my husband and two younger kids.
The house does not have a relaxing feel.
The negative : It felt dirty and very much lived in by owners. I know it can sometimes be someone’s home they rent out. And other times it’s a clean rental they make for rental use full time. The sheets where 10-15 yrs old. Towels seemed old. Stains in comforter cover. Dusty dishes. I loaded all the dishes we would use up in dishwasher before we used them they felt so dirty. Multiple stains on the carpets in both rooms. ( yes its a pet property, but even more gross when you don’t bring your pet). I felt like I had to wear my shoes in the bedrooms I didn’t not enjoy my stay. Wish we would have stayed else where that seemed more of a vacation rental and less of a random persons home we happend to stay in. Two of the sitting chairs were “antique chairs” but had a very gross look. Tears and small holes in them. I did not want my kids to sit in them.

Positive. Bathroom was clean and was big enough for four of us. Nice view. Though I wish that the big Sandune was lower so we could be closer to the ocean. Yes I’m sure it’s there for a barricade. But it did block a lot more of the view than I had expected. Deck shower is great. Put out warm hot water also.
My husband and kids had a great time and I guess that’s all that matters.
Manager response:
Kelsey, we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We apologize if the condition of the home did not meet your expectations for ideal comfort and appeal. We have passed your review to our local management to work with the owners in addressing your concerns and improving the home for our future guests. We are sorry for the disappointment this caused and we hope we can have another chance to impress you in the future!

Our second time staying at Sea Mist. It is a very comfortable and clean home with a perfect location and amazing views. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Stephanie S. Mar 2022
This place had everything we needed and wanted. It’s the last house before the state park which made it feel more private. Perfect for a romantic getaway! Great view and good beach access. If you’re into good, cheap, hole in the wall burger joints, I had one of the best burgers I’ve had in years at the rb little store just a minute drive away. Also everyone I talked to at sunset vacation rentals was beyond nice and helpful. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Hannah D. Mar 2022
You can't beat the view! The house is filled with light and very comfortable. Definitely a bit funky and may not be for everyone, but we loved it. The dogs did, too! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Melissa O. Mar 2022
Sea Mist had everything we needed for a wonderful visit! The spacious kitchen allowed the four of us to easily cook several meals, the view was fantastic, and the grand piano and living room made for very relaxing evenings. The bathroom/shower is updated nicely as is the electric cooktop. The bedrooms/beds were comfortable. I do recommend that the heavy sleepers sleep on the bunk beds as the fridge (located 5 feet away from them) makes noise regularly. This is an older home so it comes with little eccentricities like an uneven entry way, but it is obviously well taken care of, clean, and comfortable. There is no road noise as it is located at the end of a dead end road in a quiet neighborhood. We loved our time here and highly recommend it!

Catherine M. Feb 2022
While this house was very dated inside, it was clean and comfortable. The beach was just steps away in front, we could hear the waves. However, we could not see the waves while sitting inside due to the high beach grass dune. We had a relaxing fun time. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Michelle G. Jan 2022
Quaint eclectic cottage perfect for a weekend getaway. Furbaby friendly which is a plus for our family. If you are looking for ultra modern this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a clean, peaceful, comfy cottage this is the place. The access to the beach is literally right out the front door which is amazing! We enjoyed mornings having a coffee over looking the beautiful ocean views and evenings taking in the stunning sunset from the spacious deck. The kitchen was well stocked and the place was spotless inside and out. The rental company reps were helpful and pleasant without over stepping. We will book this spot again.

Awesome location. Property is a bit dated. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sarah B. Jan 2022
Fantastic location, right on the dunes with a view of the waves from the house. The house and furnishings are definitely dated, which we knew when we booked it, but we were disappointed in some of the house`s features, which weren`t well disclosed ahead of time. For instance, the house has a fireplace, but it doesn`t work well and creates so much smoke in the house you can`t use it without having the windows open - not a great option in late December. And it`s a known issue with written warnings provided, not user error. If the listing is going to tout a fireplace, they should be up front about this. In addition, there are so many things that are locked up for the owners, that we didn`t even have space to unpack. In the second bedroom, the closet is locked and the bed takes up so much space that we had to tip toe around our bags to even maneuver through the room. While the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, utensils, etc. there was only one roll of paper towels and we had to go to the store to get more part way through our stay. This seems like a basic item, like toilet paper, that should be stocked in the house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Melonie R. Nov 2021
Perfect secluded location. We all (including the dogs) enjoyed our stay. Beach at your door and the ocean is right over the dunes. The house is older, lots of funky decorations. The main bedroom is roomy, the king bed is comfortable. The other bedroom has a `king` bed but is actually two twins pushed together- not as comfortable - and that room is on the small side. There is a laundry room right off of the kitchen which contains a set of bunk beds. There is no door- just a curtain- so this might be a challenge if you have kids going to bed before the adults. The house was very clean! The kitchen is way over stocked with odd `extras`, but there were plenty of cooking utensils/pans, bowls, etc. There are NO spices, oil, S&P however- bring everything you need for cooking. We were very comfortable in the living room- lots of comfy chairs and a couch. There is a fireplace that you can use- bring your own firewood. The house smelled pretty strongly of fire smoke the entire stay. (we did not use the fireplace). Not bad enough to bother you once you adjusted to it.
The only down side was we awoke to a large dead mouse in the toilet bowl in the bathroom that is removed from the main living area. The area is more of a storage area- so I would not recommend leaving any extra food there. We did not see any mouse droppings.
We all would definitely stay here again. It is the perfect location and very comfortable for four adults. (we never used the TV: the internet speed was good: there are NO board games to play: there are a ton of books to read; the piano was fun to play). There is no good reason to not rent this place.

Fun time , comfortable house This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lori J. Jul 2021
Beautiful weather. Great beach access. Front entrance is dangerous! Furniture not comfortable or useful. Outside doors need to be refitted or replaced. All the outside door locks did not work with the key, but that was the only key. There should be two keys and they should unlock all outside doors. The bedroom baseboard heater was on and would not shut off the first day/evening, which was concerning. Not enough bowls.

Wonderfully relaxing, time to read, take walks, think your thoughts, sleep deeply, sip a beverage while witnessing a breathtaking sunset... This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sheryl W. Apr 2021
One of the best locations for beach access that we`ve stayed at on the Oregon Coast. This older home was comfortable, quaint, and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. It`s so nice that it`s pet friendly, as our dog had the one of the best times of her life. We enjoyed the beach walks, starry nights, and fresh crab from nearby Garibaldi. Hope to be back! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Quiet beach vacation - was glorious to be able to wake up and walk right to the beach, and go to sleep listening to the waves. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Amy B. Apr 2021
We had a great stay! The furniture and bed were really comfortable and the kitchen had everything we could need!
The location is perfect, at the end of a road with a park on the south end of the property! Looking forward to coming back again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a wonderful stay at our favorite beach rental . The Sea Mist is quite and comfortable with immediate beach access. It remains our favorite beach rental This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Ben Y. Jan 2021
We enjoyed our stay at Sea Mist. It is definitely an older property but the view and being right on the beach made up for it. The kitchen is well stocked.The living room and bedrooms were nice and clean. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Nancy M. Jan 2021
The Sea Mist cottage had everything we needed for a stormy coast getaway. The house is a well loved family vacation stop first, vacation rental second. Kinda funky with mismatched furniture and items.
Beach access was perfect. Location along the coast was excellent.
During pandemic, we did not enjoy the towns but they looked quaint. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Diane R. Nov 2020
A cozy house for 4 to 6 people. Wonderful front seat view of the ocean, well-stocked kitchen, comfy seating. The home is older, but it comes with lots of character. :-) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Katrina N. Oct 2020
We enjoyed our family stay at Sea Mist. It's a great home whether watching the waves from behind the ocean front living room or stepping straight from the deck onto the beach. Wonderful location, comfortable house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company
Kristine G. Oct 2020
When driving up to the house it is disappointing, horrible street appeal. When you first walk in you are in a weird room and the first thing you see is a rat trap under the couch. Then when entering the main house we were overwhelmed with the smell of smoke. Obviously the people before us didn`t read the instructions on how to operate the fireplace. The house is extremely dated but clean, it is on the beach and has a beautiful deck. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is updated. If you can get past the rat trap it is a good place to stay for the price. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Brandon C. Oct 2020
The house was fine. The property managers were not. First there`s a new thing called docu sign. Don`t make costumers work for their rental by having to print, sign, then scan and resend. Thank God I have an office. I do understand that`s fairly normal but it is 2020. Our biggest issue of all was What kind of company has their renters drive a 34 minute round trip to pick up keys then ask them to do the same when they leave. In our 15 years of traveling this has never happened with another company. If you were heading from south of the property that is what you dealt with. A simple code lock on a large cash grossing property like most solves that problem. Also not having the key ready where they said it would be posted for pickup when we show up after paying for early check-in to only have the lady at the office call my 40 year old wife hun and precede with condescending comments about key sanitation like they`re incapable of wiping keys before putting them in a lockbox when we are already obviously displeased with the extra drive. Another issue would be the extremely out dated furniture. Also maybe not have visible rat traps under furniture. I know it`s pet friendly but come on. The location was great.

Clean small house next door to the closed Manhattan Beach. Quiet and beautiful. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lynne M. Mar 2020
We were forced to vacate 30 hours after arrival due to `shelter-in-place` measures, so could only enjoy this wonderful home for really part of 1 day this time. Despite that, when we arrived it was evident a lot of care and work had gone into mowing, trimming, and cleaning the yards (front and back) and outside of Sea Mist. Inside was equally clean and so inviting - we couldn`t wait to light a fire and watch the ocean after walks outside on the beach. Needed help with something when we arrived, and as always the Sunset Vaca. staff were quick to answer and provide the assistance needed. This is a quaint, cozy, special home in a very private location. Extremely comfortable, we always look forward to staying - Hopefully we can come back again soon and have the full vacation experience we had so hoped for - This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Sea Mist is a charming house on the beach, steps from the ocean. My daughter and I, along with our dog spent 4 peaceful days here after Christmas. It was a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this rental! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

UPON ARRIVING THERE WAS THE SMELL OF BUG SPRAY AS YOU WENT IN THAT LASTED FOR ABOUT A DAY AND A HALF.
WIFI WOULDN`T WORK. CALLED AND THEY SENT A GUY OUT. HE GOT IT TO WORK ON OUR PHONES BUT NOT ON MY LAPTOP. MY LAPTOP WIFI HAS AND IS WORKING PERFECTLY IN THE MOTELS WE STAYED AT AND NOW AT HOME. VERY DISAPPOINTING AS WE WANTED TO STREAM SHOWS FROM OUR DISH ANYWHERE APP.
BASE BOARD HEATER IN MASTER BEDROOM MAKES A RATTLING SOUND AND MORE FREQUENTLY AS YOU TURN IT UP.
THE MICROWAVE IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO USE AND NEVER DID QUITE FIGURE IT OUT EVEN AFTER READING THE DIRECTIONS.

Lisa M. Aug 2019
We arrived at check in time 4:00pm. The home is old and when you walk in it was suffocatingly hot, the floor is severely sloped and filled with very old furniture, you see foam sealant around the floor as well. Than you go up 3 steps to the main house and it looks better, but so so hot, we opened all the windows but it was not cooling down. We left all the windows and doors open and went down to the beach. It was about 70 degrees outside and much hotter in the house. It did not cool down until about 7:30pm. It was miserable in there. We left the windows open all night to cool it off for the next day but by about 4:00pm it started getting hot and was unbearable to stay inside, it was 75 out this day and we could not stay on the beach all day as we needed to get out of the sun. So we ended up going into there so called front yard that was a 12 foot space but the only shade and there were spiders there as well. We called the rental company and they brought us a box fan which helped a little. Than there was the walk from the deck to the beach. They cut all the beach grass and there were some kind of thrones all over the ground so don’t dare go barefooted. Than the slope going down to the beach was so sloped it made my back hurt so bad going up and down, I do have a back problem already, but this walk made me in so much pain I could hardly walk for the rest of our stay. We stayed 4 nights. And the beds there are soooo uncomfortable. Also, the TV did not have hardly any thing that we could watch. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

it was so nice, relaxing, the beds are so comfortable and the beach was so fun. Dont walk down to the beach barefoot though as there are prickly plants that hurt your feet. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Sea Mist is all that we had hoped and expected - spacious, clean, comfortable, with east beach access. Best of all is the FULLY equipt kitchen. It has everything but the food. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We loved the homey atmosphere of this rental and the private location. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carol B. May 2019
The Sea Mist is among our favorite places to stay on the Or coast. Nothing but sand and grass separates us from the ocean. The area is quiet and quite secluded. The house is clearly the owner’s well loved home. We want for nothing at the Sea Mist...beds and furnishings are very comfortable. Our only request is that simple, clear directions be provided for new appliances and the TV and DVD player. Thank you for sharing this treasure.

Lynne M. Apr 2019
LOVE this place - Incredibly clean, you can NOT beat the ocean view, privacy, and access to the beach, town and activities. Smaller home, kitchy with lots of homey decor - you can tell a wonderful family calls this their comfortable home away from home. We love coming here! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carlton C. Oct 2018
We enjoyed our stay at the Sea Mist.
It has a really nice fireplace and front deck. The living room furniture and the beds were very comfortable.

Overall we were very satisfied with our stay.
However there was one thing that was disappointing. If you`re sitting in the living room or on the deck you can see the ocean, but to see the waves you have to be standing up.

We have stayed at Sea Mist several times over 20 years. It’s in a great location and very riveted and quiet. The house has everything you’ll need for a beach stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Clay K. May 2018
A well-appointed house in a beautiful, quiet residential area. There are two bedrooms with king beds, a 2-level bunk bed, and a couch.

The nearest services are in Rockaway, 1.5 to 2.5 miles away. Except for a few deli items we had brought with us we ate in restaurants in Rockaway, Wheeler, and Nehalem.

If you want to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped, including room- temperature condiments, some spices, but no food. For amusement choose from about 100 novels, 30 games, 20 puzzles, a grand piano (!) with good tone, or DirecTV.

The deck in back is NOT furnished except for a long built-in bench and a spigot good for rinsing off sand. The deck steps directly onto the grassy foredune. Walk about 100` west, then down 8` and you`re on the public beach.

When we arrived the TV was not configured correctly, but the technician from Sunset came out promptly to correct it. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Heather C. Mar 2018
Very cute and eclectic. Right one beach feels semi private. 2 big kings beds were cozy. 2 bunk beds not used but small. Big kitchen and lovely little place. Will stay again. A little pricey in peak season for size, but enjoyed it. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lynne M. Mar 2018
This beach home is exactly as it appears in the pics and description. Fun, `kitch-y` layout and decor and immaculately clean. Incredible ocean view from the entire wall of the home, quiet and private at the end of the street, direct and easy beach access. Close to Rockaway and other local sites. Will definately try to rent this perfect get-away base for our next trip down! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Callie U. Jan 2018
We desperately needed a mini vacation after a hectic holiday season, and this house was perfect. We have loved every house we’ve ever rented from SVR, but I don’t think we’ll stay anywhere but the sea mist from now on. Everything was so comfortable and relaxing This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mindi P. Dec 2017
This is a great beach house with amazing location.
Very NW beach house vibe. Back deck, the view and location to the beach is hard to beat! Rental company was very good and we had no issues.
The house is maybe a little to cluttered with furniture in my opinion. But, overall it was clean, comfy beds and just a nice rental. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kelly B. Oct 2017
My sisters and I stayed here for five days while on our annual sisters` trip and the beach house was awesome! It sits right on the beach at the end of the small road and is very private and quiet. The house had all the amenities we could ever want. We had a little trouble figuring out how to turn on the DirecTV (we`re not `techy` at all!) and the DVD player so we called the office and they sent Ryan out to assist us. He was awesome! We also had to have some items delivered to the office unexpectedly and the team at Sunset Vacation Rentals was most professional and helpful. Everything was perfect for our stay, even the weather! I would HIGHLY recommend this rental and we would definitely stay here again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Debra W. Apr 2017
Simply loved this home and the location was great, right on the beach. It was very comfy and relaxing including the bed which was like sleeping on a cloud. The kitchen was equipped with everything I think you would need for a vacation getaway.
The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of a BBQ and deck chairs that I thought would be there, but the 2 beautiful sunsets we witnessed from the deck made up for it. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Scott D. Jan 2017
Fantastic stay in a wonderful home at the end of a road. There are no neighbors to the south and this cottage feels very private. Super clean, warm and a great location. The only hitch during our stay is the heater in the bathroom went out. Other than that, we recommend this home.

Christopher N. Oct 2016
My wife and I had an exceptional experience at Sea Mist. The house is right on the beach and it has so much charm. We made most of our meals because it had full facilities. One thing my wife was very happy with was the new plastic wrapped sponge. It was the little things that stood out so much. One concern we had was the bed. We own a very comfortable and expensive bed. Surprisingly the king bed at Sea Mist was fantastic, very comfortable. We did not want to leave. The staff at Sunset Vacation Rentals were very helpful and a pleasure to work with. We will be back to rent this property again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Darcy W. Jun 2016
Had an absolutely lovely time at this house. Location within steps to the beach is amazing, loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves and gazing out at the horizon with morning coffee in hand. The area was not crowded at all, and only a short drive to restaurants and stores. Would definitely recommend and plan to return soon!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Anne H. Jun 2016
This was the third time we have stayed at this rental. The location, cleanliness, and well stocked kitchen are wonderful. The bed in the master bedroom was so uncomfortable our daughter and her husband were miserable a few days of our stay. The bedding on both beds should be replaced which we mentioned on our last review. Of concern was a loose board on the deck which is a tripping hazard and would take a quick easy fix to mediate. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Colby G. May 2016
This was our 2nd visit to Sea Mist, and we enjoyed our stay once again. With the state park south of the home, and a small/quiet community north, we definitely recommend this place to avoid the crowds. Just leave a few days available for us to come back again.. :-) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Gary M. Mar 2016
A great spot to get away from it all for a few days, less than 2 hours from Portland. We loved being able to step out the back door and be on the beach or just enjoy the view from our cozy living room. This house is pet friendly, quiet, and clean, although not new. It was great to have a piano as well, although it needs some work. We recommend this location highly, and will be back Lord-willing!

We enjoyed our stay- quaint, quiet and comfy! Our only complaint would be the DVD player is the same one that we complained about LAST year- it didn`t work then, either. Bluray players are now very cheap- less than $100 and it would be a very minimal cost to the property owner, but a nice ROI to list as an asset. Also, lots of burned out light bulbs, inside and out. Minor details, but easy and cheap to fix. Overall, the house was clean and well-appointed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Perfect Oregon beach-front experience for us! It's not for those looking for high-end thrills or a beach party atmosphere. Quiet and cozy, just far enough away from the the main strip, and very well furnished for all basic needs. Props to the owner/management for how the interior remains a home, and not a stripped-down bare-bones rental. We felt like welcome guests, and loved the decorations in place sharing the history.

I've been coming to this lovely spot for years, and was having my usual great time until I woke up one morning covered in flea bites. A few years ago, the owners started allowing pets in the beach house. Haven't had a problem until this year. I contacted the management company who sent out a handyman to set off several flea bombs. A few days later, I looked down at my slippers, and there were several fleas on them and my socks. More flea bombs were set off. Now I'm home, and this morning I had two more bites on my foot, which means some fleas made the trip home with me. Not at all happy about this situation.

This is the most beautiful is secluded and peaceful.This is just what we wanted after driving from Denver.The house was great if you want modern this isn`t for you.If you just want a cozy feeling this should be your pick.The house has everything you need.Already have booked for next June can`t wait to get back.Also the beach was never crowed and just over the hill Oceanside.

This is the sencond time we have stayed at this property and are looking forward to staying again this summer. The location is perfect for our family. The home was in great shape clean and full of the necessities. It has a very well lived in feel, so if you are looking for sharp and new this may not be the ideal spot for you but for us we love that it is full of charm and as far from a hotel as you could be. The kids loved the beach access. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Sheets had sand in them(didn't get cleaned)
Burner on stove don't work.

If you like a quiet, secluded getaway that is still very accessible I highly recommend this location. The Sea Mist is at the end of a cul-de-sac so we had no car traffic and just one person, the neighbor within walking distance. However it is just a couple of hundred yards from 101, and just a few minutes from Tillamook and a bit more to Cannon Beach and Seaside. The ocean is right over a small berm, visible from the west but you have to walk a few feet to see the beachfront proper. A raised deck would make this an absolutely perfect property. The bathroom and bedrooms are nicely refurnished, with an older living and dining space. Lots of plates and dishes, but the stove is a bit dated. We very much enjoyed our stay and plan to return again. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to spend a few days.

Had a great stay, besides receiving the wrong code to get into the key lock box we had nothing to complain about. Other than little things, stove top burners were not fitted correctly and one didn`t work. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house is a nice kind of funky beach house; quaint and comfortable. We liked it but wished it had been cleaned more thoroughly, dishes were left in the dishwasher, the towels smelled musty and seemed stained and indications were that vacuuming was rather haphazard. We were also disappointed that the DVD player quit after 10 minutes & a note left by previous renters indicated that it didn`t work for them, either. I think an overhaul of the cleaning service may be in order because overall the house was charming, great for families with dogs.

Sara F. Jan 2015
This is a cozy little house with a few quirks. We love being right on the beach, but note that you can`t see the waves sitting down in the living room or kitchen, but can standing up. The kitchen has lots of some things (coffee cups and pans) and nothing of others (tupperware, saran wrap, crab crackers). This is a great property for the price and it was clean and cozy. We loved sitting by the fire and relaxing. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My mom and step-father discovered this wonderful place over 30 years ago. My mom and I continued to come to `our home away from home` after my step-father died. Unfortunately, my mom`s health no longer allows her to make the trip, but I will continue the tradition and did so in 2014. That should tell you something!! The home is cozy and welcoming, has all the amenities, and you can`t beat the location. Great place for quiet and relaxation, long walks on a beautiful beach to admire the view, search for beach treasures, watch the sea birds, and if a person is brave enough....play in the cold Pacific Ocean. Sunsets are amazing and can be enjoyed from your easy chair! Tillamook ice cream is available at several places in Rockaway, and the Tillamook Cheese Factory is only 14 miles away if you prefer a larger selection of ice cream. What`s not to love about that? Come make memories at Sea Mist, a/k/a Melcher`s Anchorage. You`ll love it as much as we do!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

WE stayed at this great home for a quick 2 night stay in August. The location was everything we could have asked for and more. Steps from the back porch to the sand. We spent more time on the back patio then we did in the house. It was a great vacation. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We really enjoyed the lovely stay we had at Nedonna beach. What a hidden gem this place is. The Sea Mist has such a nice open layout and loved being right on the beach. The property was clean and welcoming. The dish washer was full when we arrived but I did not mind emptying it. The couch was not very comfy but everything else about it really was!

It was a complete delight to spend 10 days in May at Sea Mist. The secluded location with the fabulous ocean view over the grassy sand dune was exactly what we were looking for. We spent hours on the beach walking and flying kites and throwing the frisbee; the dog had a great time! The piano received a good workout; remember to bring your own music. As long as you are ok in bringing all your food and spices we highly recommend Sea Mist and intend to return.

This was our second time staying at the Sea Mist. It was another cozy November getaway for our family of 3. We just cooked, ate & drank, read, walked and watched the great Fall weather blow by. Once you get the place warmed up with a fire and some food cooking on the stove it makes for a great rustic home base to come home to after exploring the beach. Can`t wait for next year`s return to the Sea Mist in Fall.

Wonderful 2 night stay with friends. Easy beach accessibilty and a comfortable home.
Not sure I would stay for just a weekend with all the additional fees that nearly doubled the cost of per night stay. Staying longer might make it more palatable. Overall I would recommend the Sea Mist. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lori B. Oct 2013
We would have been able to give this property all 5`s if there had not been a very unsettling matter of rodents in the house at night. This one matter, which we deemed unacceptable, put a cloud over the stellar location, and weather we had during our stay @ Seamist. We had read entries in the guest book, from years past, which were always super great. But there were also entries from years ago, reporting the mouse problems someone else experienced. We implore that pest control be on your list of regular maintenance for this house. We loved this was just our `flavor` of abode while at the beach, but it would be unlikely that we would return due to the rat we had to live with during our stay. In fact, we are interested in partial refund for the distress it caused for both of my sisters, whom the rat had crawled on while they were in bed. It was not a mouse!

After 30 plus years of staying here it is like coming home.. I love this place as if it were my is the most perfect spot right on the beach and easy access to the ocean. I am 86 years old and if I can get up and down the dunes anyone can... just a slight slope.
The house contains anything and everything anyone would want or need...Just a lovely, lovely place !!! The management people are great as are the owners... I highly recommend my home away from home !!!

My family and I loved the location and the house. Was clean enough and used enough that we felt very comfortable and at home there. My kids really enjoyed the access to the beach and that it felt like our own private place. We look forward to renting it again next summer!! Also, I have to say that the mgmt company was very accommodating as well. They found us this house after we had already booked another. As they say, change is good.

My wife and 21 month-old daughter spent 4 great nights at the Sea Mist. We were looking for a quiet, rustic beach house for a fall getaway and this place was perfect.

This time of the year was beautiful there with fall colors and stormy gray skies. The beach seemed deserted except for the occasional dog walker passing by. At times we felt like the only people on the entire coast.

There is nothing fancy about this place - which is a good thing. Once you settle in, get the fireplace going and dinner cooking you realize how cozy the Sea Mist is. It`s well lived in but not junky.

Days were mostly spent walking & playing on the beach with our daughter, watching the weather roll in & out and taking mini day trips up north to Manzanita & Cannon Beach. We also did a lot of cooking in the well-equipped kitchen which allowed us to eat at home most of the time.

We had a great time are looking forward to going back to the Sea Mist! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My husband, Jerry & I very much enjoyed our stay at Sea Mist. Even though the weather was rainy and windy, the house was so cozy and comfy.

Have stayed here for over thirty years and love it !!! .... perfect spot.. great view of the ocean ... out the backdoor and you are on the beach.. Always clean and everything you need to cook with is there...nicely furnished..very comfy ... always something new each year to make it more homey....Owners and management are very accommodating..
I have said many time.. if I can`t stay there I ain`t goin` .....
I recomend this to anyone and everyone that enjoys the beach and has respect for other peoples property... Perfect for a little R&R .
My advise... give it a try.. you`ll love it!!

Great little house away from it all...
Very private cottage at the end of a dead end road. Didn`t see anyone in the houses around the whole stay. Very private and quiet, so if you want seclusion, this is the place. Go out the french doors to the deck and walk to the beach, this place is oceanfront. House has every little detail you need in fully stocked kitchen from waffle maker to hand mixer, cake pans to electric can opener. Plenty of games, puzzles and large selection of books. This house has been lived in for 30+ years so EVERYTHING you need is there. Extra blankets, tons of towels and lots of pillows. This kinda house is the best kind to rent because it comes with all this stuff. I would take a kitschy, quaint place like this over a brand new condo any day. Huge wood fireplace, flat screen TV. King bed in master is the most comfy. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Kerry L. Jul 2011
overall a VERY nice place and we would be happy to stay there again. The french door to the deck and beach access was sagging and causing damage to the floor which made it a bit difficult for the kids to use the door. It really didn`t cause a problem, but we would think twice before staying there in the fall or winter months as the sign says that door is not usable during that time of year. Other than that our stay was wonderful - we will book earlier next year for a longer stay! Also I was very pleased with the Management Company - they made it very easy to book and stay!

This was our 6th visit to Rockaway but the first time we had stayed at Sea Mist. The house is in a wonderful location and is very homey and layed out very well for a family. The extra bunk beds in the laundry room are great and really make it a 3 bedroom house. There is a nice little entry way with a 2nd bathroom. Microwave was broken and some lights didn`t work but reported to manager. The living room furniture very comfortable. Dining room chairs are big and bulky and need to be replaced with something smaller. The piano although very charming takes up a lot of space. We can`t wait to go back.

My family and I were so happy to arrive at this delightful cabin after a very long drive. It didn`t feel like a new hotel or condo. It felt more like home with many years of character and an invitation to relax. Everything was clean and functional.

The location is great, seeming more private than most, at the end of the lane with neighbors a stone`s throw away on only two sides.

Unfortunately, the weather did not shine on us. It was atypically cold and grey for August. But the house had a shelf full of games and I taught the family how to play Backgammon.

We played at the beach every day. The kids were constantly making sand castles. This part of the coast has a fine sand. It sometimes squeeks when you shuffle your feet accross it. Pretty cool. It was excellent for going barefoot. Also it didn`t seem over-populated. There was a lot of beach and not too many people. We visited some of the more famous beaches in the area, but found none better for us than the one in our own back yard at Sea Mist.

There are some cockleburrs living around the house, so it is essential to wear shoes/sandles right around the house and even more important to take them off before entering the house, to avoid tracking them through the house.

This place was the highlight of our first visit to Oregon. I would be happy to stay there again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We have rented this house 6 or 7 times in the past 10 years. The doors and locks need replacing. The foundation has settled to the point where you literally walk downhill to the kitchen sink. Still we love it. It`s not some sterile hotel room and Nedonna Beach can`t be beat in my opinion. The house is located at a dead end adjacent to the Manhatten Beach Wayside and is fairly secluded.

The beach house was everything we needed. We recently went through some family illnesses over the past couple of years and this was our first real chance to get away and enjoy ourselfs. we spent the majority of our time in the house relaxing and enjoying the view of the ocean. when we were not there we were in the little towns nearby or on the beach. it was a fantastic time and were thinking of returning in sept. Were hooked on beach houses instead of motels and the seamist will definately be seeing us again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Depends totally upon one's expectations, but if you love hearing and seeing the ocean, walking on a great stretch of beach, seeing pelicans swoop to the ocean for their dinner, and enjoying simplicity which offers basic needs, this is a great place! If it troubles you that the kitchen slopes or that the vegetation has some mean thorns, (watch your bare feet!), then this one is probably not for you. We find it one of the most relaxing places on earth! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company

Love the Seamist at Nedonna Beach !!! Have stayed there for over 30 years and if I can`t stay there `I ain`t goin`....Location is great... easy beach access and you can enjoy the beauty of the ocean while sitting at the dining table..Walks to the jetty are a must and with a really low tide you can see lots of starfish, sea anemones & little crabs etc....The outside doesn`t look too inviting but the inside is most comfy with everything there that a person would need... just bring your food and clothing !!! nice deck to enjoy too...

the french door sticks so much that I almost wrenched my back trying to open it. The ill-fitting door is causing damage to the floor & needs immediate repair.

the folks at the sunset rental agency have always been very friendly & helpful whether contacting them by phone or email. we always enjoy our stay near the ocean & keeping a fire going in the woodburing fireplace during cold windy nights. the condition of the home was basically clean, but it definitely needs some updating. the bathroom has been refurbished very nicely. the roof was having some leaks & repairmen came to work on it while we were there. the folks at the rental office said they weren`t suppose to come while guests were there. the smell of the tar or whatever they put on the roof was quite strong & we had to vacate the premises for a few hrs. we would have appreciated a small discount for the incovenience. the outside appearance of the cabin definitely needs some fixing up. the smell in the entry way from mold on the ceiling was a concern also. pans we used were quite worn & could be replaced. the couch seems pretty old & soft. we would certainly recommend the sunset rental, but maybe not that specific cabin until some updating was done. being so close to the ocean & enjoying the views at sunset and the walks on the beach all outweigh some of the other things that may not be quite to our satisfaction. but they certainly warrant some attention to for future guests.

The property will need some foundation work as the house `tilts` a little. I especially enjoyed the great kitchen and plenty of dishes and pots and pans. The fire place works great !
There is some kind of weed that is very `prickly` on the ocean side of the property ! We had a difficult time keeping it off our bare feet...but it was all part of the fun...we would definitely come back and recommend the place. Another foundation issue I think...the lower level area felt cold and damp..we didn`t use it other than the additional toilet there which was needed and helpful.
