Recent Rockaway Beach vacation rental reviews

We had so much fun in this beach house. Everything is very nice except for the dishwasher was broken, but Vacasa takes care it very well. Overall, it is a great place to stay!

What a surprise! This cottage has a great creek that runs through the property, creating the ultimate peaceful experience. Deer also came through the hillside during our stay!
Ayla Q. | May 2021
We loved our stay in this bright and clean home near the water. Nedonna beach on the north end of Rockaway is less busy than the public access down at Manhattan beach. My son enjoyed walking over to the jetty, we even saw sea lions catching fish. The upper and lower decks are wonderful for relaxing outdoors and listening to the ocean. The lower deck extends all the way to the hot tub, so no walking through grass. It's actually more private than I thought it would be. Not fully fenced but our dogs are well behaved and the neighbors were friendly. The entire downstairs of the house is really perfect for children to hang out and play. Vacasa has always delivered a worry-free rental experience for us and this time was no different. Would absolutely book this house again.

Things to do in Rockaway Beach

With seven miles of picturesque sandy shoreline and a chain of inland lakes left behind by a long-ago channel of the Nehalem River, Rockaway Beach is one of the coast's most popular spots for outdoor enthusiasts. Boating, fishing, crabbing, sea kayaking and sandcastle building are just a few of the area's star attractions.

Just south of town, photographers flock to the beautiful Twin Rocks for a jaw-dropping image of the sun sinking below the horizon. During the summer months, take a ride along the historic Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, departing from Rockaway Beach's iconic "Little Red Caboose."

With a full kitchen back at your cozy vacation home, you'll be able to catch your own dinner, be it Dungeness crab, Coho salmon, or fresh-caught clams. All the equipment needed can be found and rented at facilities such as the iconic Jetty Fishery. When you've had your fill of cooking, head out for oceanfront dining at the Sand Dollar for a change of pace!
