New House with Lots of Natural Light; Steps from Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

We completed building our brand new 2 level vacation house in Twin Rocks a few years ago. Twin Rocks is just South of Rockaway Beach (about 15 miles north of Tillamook) - just 90 scenic minutes from Portland.

Our house is a 2 Bedroom 2 Bath very comfortably furnished house with a full kitchen. There is a 2 level large patio (one covered) with a lovely view of the mountains and has a Weber Charcoal and a Weber Gas BBQ and patio furniture.

Our comfortable house is less than a one minute walk to the beach. - one road away from the beach front- just steps away from the pristine quiet clean 7.5 mile Twin Rocks beach.

It is a perfect get away, a comfortable retreat, for a family or a romantic getaway in a quiet serene atmosphere. You will enjoy the secluded, peaceful & beautiful Twin Rocks Beach and the spectacular sunsets. Near Shopping, dining & beach & yet still secluded.

This is our vacation house, our family's pride – not a professional vacation rental.

About Vik Savara

Retired Engineering/Marketing Executive living with wife in Portland. Both kids (they will always be kids!) with families in other states.

Vik Savara purchased this house in 2007

Why Vik Savara chose Coastal Oregon

We fell in love with the serenity of the Twin Rocks beach - it truly is a hidden gem - away from the 'tourist' beaches - but yet very accessible to nearby townships and a large city (Tillamook). The beach is clean and with few very friendly people - the Twin Rocks Island with its spectacular sunsets is just in front. Feed the birds - build castles, take a relaxing walk, Excellent Kite flying in gentle wind and for the young at heart - marshmallows over bonfires on the beach at night.

What makes this house unique

Every now and then we just have to take a break from our routine - and we always return from the beach house so very refreshed. Since our house is just a minutes walk to the beach - it is very convenient to make several trips during the day - a brisk morning walk with the birds, Coming back for brunch then a walk after tea - returning after Sunset. In summer there is the Coastal Railway which goes from Rockaway Beach to Gharibaldi & Back - the kids (and adults)just enjoy the scenery from open air cabooses - with the tracks at the edge of the sea - the scenery is beautiful and the kids love waiving to pedestrians walking on the roads. There are tide pools to wonder at , Deep Sea Fishing ,Golf, Air Museum in the famous Gas Dirigibles Hanger; Tillamook Cheese Factory Tours; Wine Tasting - so much so close. Our house is just minutes from downtown Rockaway Beach with its restaurants, Library, Ice Cream Parlors and fantastic smoked fish; New Orleans Ribs and British Fish/Chips ( no chains )!

Cozy cottage in Rockawy Beach

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little house is the best! Pretty much any amenity you could think of was supplied. Vik is a very helpful an conscientious owner. We were there for 4 nights over New year's eve and when we arrived Vik had left us a bottle of wine and some blown up balloons to help us celebrate..very festive! There were 7 of us for 2 of the nights and we had plenty of sleeping space for everyone. Also our 3 kids really enjoyed sleeping in the loft. We'd love to go back sometime soon.

I’ve never written a review of a VRBO rental, but I just had to for this one. My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful stay in Rock Away Beach in Vik’s comfortable home. The location gives you easy access to the beach, which is only one block away. Also driving to other beach communities and places of interest north or south is truly a breeze from this central location. The house is extremely comfortable and the kitchen provides all that anyone could possibly need to whip up a tasty meal. The beds are very comfortable and the home is quite clean. But beyond the basics, we all would wish for in a rental (and Vik’s home has it) was the wonderful feeling Vik provided with his ongoing communication, extensive information packet and obvious desire to make our stay perfect. Also his kindness towards our dog was especially heartwarming. I hesitated to write all these good things for fear it will be booked when I want to return…and I will. This is a great rental if you’re interested in this part of the Oregon Coast.

Great stay close to attractions

  • 5 of 5

Everything with our stay went as planned and expected. Communication and coordination with Vik was prompt and easy. Vik is very responsive, organized and attentive. The house is clean, orderly, well supplied and everything is labeled and explained--very helpful. The beach with beautiful twin rocks directly before you is a short 2-3 minutes walk from the house and a wagon with sand toys is provided for the kids to pull along and play with. Along Highway 101, the Tillamook cheese factory is a 20-30 minutes drive to the south, Cannon Beach is 30 minutes to the north, and with the help of the guest book we discovered the Jetty Fishery 15 minutes to the north where we had a fun and successful time crabbing from their docks with their equipment that we rented. We had a wonderful stay and we were pleased with the house and the whole experience.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are from Iowa (although Oregon natives) and decided to spend a few days at the beach. House was close enough to my folks motor home in Rockaway which was very convienent for them to visit. We found this house and it was the perfect place for us. Within walking distance of the beach my boys & nephews spent hours down there. My boy loved the sleeping loft area and there was enough room to have my nephews sleep over as well. Able to have friends/family come visit and yet not have the feeling like it was crowded in the house. We made use of the deck off the back and had some of our meals out there. We definitely will rent this house the next time we are on the Oregon Coast and recommended the house to family and friends. Appreciate the friendliness and availability of Vik when we had questions. Defintely a house to rent if your looking for a few days to relax on the Oregon Coast.

Relaxing vacation on Oregon beach

  • 5 of 5

4 adults and 1 child shared this house for 5 days. Great instructions from owner as to directions, ideas for activities for everyone, kitchen packed with utensils and very clean. The one child was overjoyed with the sleeping loft. With two bedrooms and separate bathroom everybody had their privacy. House was stocked with games and cards that we played with every night. Beach was only a short walk away.

Perfect for family fun

  • 5 of 5

Two minutes walking to the beach, excellent. Almost no one on the beach? Even better. My sons cared almost as much about the loft area as the ocean so their endless fun inside made rainy days great.

Clean, well equipped house. Appreciate Vik's notes and clarity on all procedures which made the stay carefree. Excellent water pressure in both showers which was delightful.

We stayed a full week and were sad to leave. Highly recommend. Everything you need in any sort of situation with great indoor and outdoor spaces.

Limited grocery options in Rockaway Beach but 20 minutes to Tillamook and Fred Meyer's will help you stock up.
