|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
This little Rockaway Beach vacation cottage is big on style and amenities but light on your wallet! A great home base for your next beach adventure, you'll enjoy bright, fun colors and a convenient location right in the middle of it all -- on the west side of Highway 101, and only about a block from over seven miles of flat, sandy beach.
This is no boring hotel room. The living room, kitchen, and dining room are light and open, with hardwood flooring throughout and a fun, retro feel. When you're not out beachcombing, you'll feel happy and right at home in this space. After a long walk on the beach, relax, put your feet up on the cushioned ottoman, make some snacks, and watch a DVD on the flat screen TV.
Speaking of snacks, the full kitchen is completely equipped with all the appliances and gadgets needed for meals anytime. After a full day's adventures, there's no need to make a reservation or decide on a restaurant -- just visit the grocery store across the street and whip up a completely satisfying meal in your own kitchen! There's even a tea kettle, toaster, and coffeemaker for a quick breakfast before heading out to the shore for more fun.
At night, the separate bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed, with bright floral bedding, 50s style bedside tables, and reading lamps. The large full bath is right off the bedroom, and has lots of shelving for toiletries and a shower/tub combo.
Up to four people and one pet (with a $10 per day fee along with a $40 minimum per stay) can comfortably stay in this space. Other amenities include WiFi and cable TV.
Please note that this home is a two-level property, with each level rented separately; Jody's Getaway is located on the first floor only. Since there no stairs at the entrance or throughout this home, it's easy for everyone to navigate. There is only parking for 1 vehicle.
Due to the historic train that passes nearby the home, it's not the quietest or most secluded getaway, but is perfectly located for those who want to be in the center of quaint Rockaway Beach! You'll be within a quarter mile of popular festivities like the kite festival, Pirates' Week, and have a front-row view for the annual 4th of July parade. Walk to antique stores, pick up some saltwater taffy for later, and finish the afternoon with a cappuccino. If you're feeling adventurous, there's even boating, fishing and crabbing opportunities close by.
Along the beach to the south of town, you can check out the iconic Twin Rocks, two sea stacks formed by erosion many millions of years ago. Be sure to bring your camera to capture a beautiful sunset image featuring this geologic wonder. But really, your favorite vacation activity just might be lounging out on the beach, digging your toes down into the warm sand, and watching the waves.
There's just so much personality at this fun little cottage! A perfect choice for a couple, friends, or a small family, visit Rockaway Beach and be in the middle of everything at Jody's Cottage.

Although very clean, this property is not one I would recommend. The noise from the highway is minimal, but the upstairs noise unfortunately takes away from any relaxation or quiet. I could hear each cough, sneeze, dog bark and the television blasting from before 8am until after midnight which was a huge disappointment. It is very close to the beach which is great, but the weather on the coast means you will likely want to spend some time indoors, and with the loud TV upstairs it's not particularly enjoyable. Other than that, I was pleased with the kitchen equipment but a sharper knife could make it even better for cooking. Having access to the Internet was also helpful to plan outings in the area.
We enjoyed our stay at this getaway. Comfortably sleeps 4 (we had 2 adults and 2 kids) and it's really nice they take dogs. The furnishings have a sweet retro feel and there were lots of pillows--bonus! A few things that would be helpful and make it more user-friendly: posted instructions for your stay, specifically on operation of the electronic lock and knob; a light over the kitchen sink, and hot pads/mitts and a cutting board. The fluorescent overhead lights are harsh and jarring, so we tried to just use daylight and lamps, but kitchen workspace was dim. Overall, a pleasant place to stay, and affordable!
Great little getaway - steps from the beach and all the Rockaway shops/restaurants!
We enjoyed our two night stay at Jody's -- it's a tiny place but very clean and with room to cook, watch a movie or play a game. The location is wonderful -- just a block from the beach and steps away from all the little Rockaway shops. The Vacasa team was so welcoming and responded immediately to a small problem with the stove.
We enjoyed our visit to Rockaway Beach and our stay at the Vacasa property. It was very clean and well maintained. It was close to the beach - within easy walking distance. It was quiet at night and good sleeping.
The property was wonderful: clean, beautiful, and well-equipped. The location was also great. Some very nice local restaurants: diverse in menu and type. The beach was lovely and the house was just around the corner. The Rock away 4th of July celebration is a great attraction. There's a myriad of sites to see and places to explore: forests, mountains, creeks, lakes, and coastal beaches. There are some very neat cities nearby: Tillamook, Cannon Beach, Astoria, Portland, etc. It's a great place to vacation, with so much to do!
