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.

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!

A relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend here just to get out of Seattle. The place was awesome being right on the beach and they really paid attention to detail with this spot. From a little welcome basket to a book of activities to a little grill and other beach supplies to use it was just an all round great experience. The furnishings aeem like the owners care about this place. It was great to claim a fire pit area. Although being 20ish min from Cannon beach, there were hikes to do and plenty of beach closeby.

I would recommend this to my friends and family.

We have utilized Home Away, Air B&B, and VRBO many times over the years. Few other experiences compare to our satisfaction with Hakuna Matata! The owner, Anne VanHorn, has provided everything a family or group of friends could need in a beautiful (and spotlessly clean) condo. Perfect location on the beach with amazing views! We enjoyed campfires on the beach, fun in the afternoon on the balcony admiring amazing kites, and great family evenings in the great room with waves crashing in the background! We appreciate the owner's graciousness, her professionalism, and her balanced approach in making sure that we had the best family vacation possible!

Highly recommend this perfectly equipped home! We hope to return very soon - it was that perfect! Thanks so much, Anne!

Beautifully decorated & located oceanfront pristine condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a topnotch unit! Exceptionally clean, light and airy condo with every amenity imaginable. The views from balcony were beautiful and soothing. The accommodations were thoughtfully laid out with comfort and style in mind. We enjoyed our stay there very much. If there were to be one cautionary note regarding the condo, it would be the stairways between the levels. People with any kind of mobility problem might find the two flights of stairs (one leading to bedrooms on second level & one leading to the living & kitchen area on third level) a challenge.

The owner was exceptionally friendly and accessible. It was a wonderful experience.
