Rockaway Beach House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Private and peaceful, this reasonably priced Rockaway vacation rental home strikes just the right balance between comfort, convenience, and location. Relax at the picnic table in the grassy yard and watch your dog(gies - two max for $10 each per day - $40 minimum per stay) cavort, or cross the street to Rockaway's long beach where they - and you! - can play in the waves. Inside, you can pass the time with amenities like TV with cable and a DVD player, or flip on the gas grill and gather 'round a barbequed meal out back.
This a cozy space, with beautiful dark hardwood floors, and soft furniture that's meant to make no other statement than "make yourself comfortable." Slip one of the CDs you brought along into the player listen to music as you indulge in a game of Battleship, spread out on the big coffee table. Come back from your walk on the beach and cue up a movie on DVD or VHS (bring some of those along too!) Or, just settle in with a cup of coffee and one of the books from the shelf and enjoy some quiet time. Bring up the laptop with the free WiFi and check tee-times or local events.
If you've planned your menu for meals and brought the requisite supplies, you shouldn't have any trouble fixing anything from pancakes to pasta in this fully equipped kitchen. There's a stove, oven, and fridge you'd expect, but there's a microwave as well for those times when you want to just warm up something on the run. You'll have all the pots, pans and utensils you need. When the meal's ready, call everyone to the table where six can sit and enjoy the feast as they discuss the day's adventures or plan tomorrows. At meal's end, have everyone roll up their sleeves and make quick work of the dishes. There's no dishwasher.
Come bedtime, head upstairs where you'll find two bedrooms. One has queen bed in a decor that's simple yet cozy, with reading lamps by the bed and a writing desk by the window through which you'll get a partial view of the ocean just across the street. Kids of all ages will love the twin-over-full bunk beds in the second bedroom. Flip for the top bunk! Factor in the sofa bed, and you've got a space that will accommodate up to seven. There's one full bathroom, and you'll have a washer and dryer to use, so don't overpack!
Access to Rockaway's seven miles of beautiful sandy beach is right across the street. After spending some time in the sand, swimming, sunning, clamming...whatever, take the camera and a picnic lunch over to one of three state parks in the area, including awe-inspiring Twin Rocks where you can explore the shore or hike up and savor some scenic vistas. If you're into lighthouses, head over to Netarts, about seven miles west of Tillamook, and check out the Cape Meares Lighthouse. While you're in the Tillamook area, take the kids over to the cheese factory and sign up for one of the tours of the facility.
Come join the legion of vacationers who find the peace and tranquility of little Rockaway Beach a great place to escape and re-energize. And, while you're there, make this cozy cottage - close to sites, a market, shops, and dining downtown - your getaway haven!
