Seven miles of unspoiled golden sand lapped by the mighty Pacific Ocean is your backyard when you stay at the luxurious Hakuna Matata oceanfront condo in the heart of Rockaway Beach. A birds-eye view of Twin Rocks, the sound of crashing waves, and the intoxicating smell of salt air through large glass doors complement designer furnishings and exquisite details throughout, ensuring that your vacation is nothing short of magical.

The top floor features a brand-new gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, an art-inspired dining table, a comfy wraparound reclining leather couch, a warming gas log fireplace, and ocean-facing balcony.

The middle floor encompasses a spacious master suite with a luxurious king pillow-top mattress, a jetted tub, and private balcony for quiet contemplation. The guest bedroom, also located on this level, features a queen bed with adjoining full bathroom. Both beds are wrapped in sumptuous linens and luxury comforters for a refreshing night’s sleep. In addition, there is a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the ground floor bonus room, so the condo comfortably sleeps six.

Two large HD televisions, high-speed Internet, state-of-the-art electronics, home-integrated surround sound, and gaming equipment including a Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 are sure to keep you entertained when you’re not out exploring nearby world-class attractions. These include the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Three Graces tide pools, Cape Meares Lighthouse, Short Sands surfing paradise, and Cannon Beach’s famed Haystack Rock. If you are in the mood for a coffee, pizza, or burger, a short stroll puts you in the heart of Rockaway, a beachside town reminiscent of days gone by.

Every detail about this premier property exudes the owner’s discriminating taste, attention to detail, and graceful hospitality. Whether it’s a family vacation or a romantic getaway, you are sure to have the experience of your dreams at Hakuna Matata.

Why Anne Van Horn chose Coastal Oregon

We fell in love with this unit the moment we looked out and saw nothing but ocean. It has always been our family’s dream to own a beachfront vacation home and this dream came true for us in late summer of 2010. We are a family of five with busy active lives and wanted to find a peaceful vacation spot that would help all of us to unwind while relaxing in luxury. Hakuna Matata is that place, our worry free haven while being close to the splendid beauty of the Pacific Ocean. We chose Rockaway Beach because of its marvelous stretch of beach. Walking along the seven mile stretch is always an adventure for our kids. From kite flying to beachcombing, you never know what you might find…shells, star fish, or even a shipwreck. Be sure to try crabbing at the local Jetty, it is always a fun excursion which might provide you with some dinner options. We open our home to you in hopes that you might have the opportunity to experience a bit of the Haukuna Matata spirit. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As I watch the waves from the living room upstairs, all of us feel a little sad leaving this beautiful house. We had an awesome time. Your house was a perfect vacation spot for us. Thank you so much!

Very very well kept and cared for! I felt like I was "at home"! Great location on the coast with a fabulous view, and was central to things we wanted to do. The owner was awesome to converse with and stayed in touch leading up to our stay!

Very much highly recommend this location!

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This home in Rockaway Beach is great! We meet up with our friends for a wonderful getaway. The home is beautiful. Great for two couples. Was very clean when we arrived. Tastefully decorated just like the pictures show and the views are awesome. As many others stated, it is three levels so there are a lot of stairs. After the initial unloading of bags and food, it didn't really bother us. We enjoyed sitting by the fireplace and watching the waves when it was rainy and sitting out on the upper patio when it was sunny. (It was both while we were there) The beach access is right out the bottom floor slider which was great. Loved the convenience of walking out the door and onto the beach. The homeowner Anne was very helpful. She gave us great info on places to go see and places to eat. She was quick to respond when I emailed with questions. I would definitely recommend this home and we hope to come back and stay again soon! Thank you Anne!

Perfect Oregon Coast Visit

  • 5 of 5

This townhome was exactly as pictured and details exactly as stated. Arrival information was perfect and we had no trouble with anything while we were there. We spent 3 nights at Hakuna Matata and loved every minute. The beach could not have been closer. When we arrived we immediately got out our kites and headed for the ocean. Sooo fun! Then we got food from the Old Oregon Smokehouse (just down the street) and brought it back to eat in the condo. We bought firewood at the store in Tillamook on the way to Rockaway and had a bonfire on the beach that night. We ate breakfast at Grumpy's, right across the street, and it was really tasty. Anne had given us tons of info on where to eat and what to do, which was very helpful. She even left a nice arrival gift for us, which we totally enjoyed. We drove up to Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park and down to Cape Meares lighthouse and Pacific City and stopped at lookouts along the way. It rained the last day we were there, so we were really happy to have the fireplace to keep us warm. Listening to waves while sitting by the fireplace was amazing. We hope to go back again soon. We didn't get to see as much as we would have liked, so we hope to stay longer next time. I already have friends from work that are planning to stay here for their vacation next year. I would recommend this place to anyone. So clean and modern. We will be back!! Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful beach home!!
