This warm and inviting Rockaway Beach getaway sits on the west side of Highway 101, just across a quiet street from miles of sandy beach. Perfect for memorable family vacations, this three bedroom cottage is filled with cozy charm and nestled between a natural wetland pond and the ocean in the popular southern area of town. From the moment you first drive up, you'll be charmed by the beachy exterior and big front porch, complete with Adirondack chairs for sitting back and relaxing with a morning cup of coffee!
Once inside, there's ample coastal character, with ship replicas on the mantle, a white paneled ceiling, and sea shells decorating the tables; but, you'll also find a touch of traditional style courtesy the oriental rugs and hardwood floors. There's a colorful brick wood fireplace so bring some firewood with you, cable TV with DVD player, comfy seating, and room for the whole family to spread out and watch a movie or find their own quiet place to curl up with a good book.
The full kitchen is well-stocked with all the appliances, pots and pans, dishes, cooking utensils, and dinnerware you need to serve a group of hungry beachcombers. Pick up some fresh seafood at the market and whip up a delicious fish dinner in no time! There's even a dishwasher for easy clean-up. The full sized washer and dryer is also located in the kitchen, and ready for your wet beach clothes after a day of exploring.
A formal dining room has ample seating for meals or there's plenty of space on the back deck to have an outdoor feast. Accessed through a glass door from the kitchen, the deck is outfitted with an outdoor table and patio umbrella for shade. After spending the day at the beach, fire up the charcoal grill and cook up some juicy burgers for a laid back summer barbecue. And after the kids have gone to bed, you can spend cool, clear evenings on the deck with a glass of wine.
This home has three bedrooms and one full bath, all located on one level. Two of the bedrooms contain trundle day beds, each with its own collection of colorful throw pillows. With flexibility in mind, these beds can convert into two twin sized beds, perfect for two younger kids to share a room, or stay as a single twin bed for an older child. These rooms are decorated pleasingly for maximum comfort, with dressers, reading lamps, and soft bedding.
The third bedroom has a full sized bed with a cozy comforter, bedside table, reading lamp, and a window that lets in lots of natural light. It has a vintage, shabby-chic feel that will have its occupants feeling soothed and contented in no time. With its three bedrooms, this cute little cottage will sleep six. It's also pet friendly so bring your furry family member along for some quality time playing in the surf for a $10 per day, per pet fee ($40 minimum per stay).
While this cottage is definitely welcoming and very comfortable, one of the best features is its prime location. Right off the back patio and yard is a large, natural wetland pond with lily pads, aquatic plants and other scenic features. A very relaxing afternoon can be had watching the kids play in back or being on the lookout for great blue herons out in the pond.
With beach access right across the street, you are literally steps from miles of pristine sandy beach. Spend the day building sand castles, flying kites, looking for shells, or simply laying out under a big umbrella. The cottage is also located only a half mile north of one of the most recognizable views in Rockaway Beach: Twin Rocks. Be sure to bring your camera for some stunning sunset pictures starring this geologic feature.
Want a little change from all the peacefulness of your beach cottage? Head a about a mile north and hit the quaint downtown area for shops, restaurants and galleries. Stock up on local saltwater taffy and handcrafted fudge at The Picnic Basket, or maybe start the day with a hearty homemade breakfast at the Whale Spout.
For a fun day trip, drive north up the coast stopping at Wheeler for a little antiquing, Manzanita for lunch at Bread and Ocean, then onto Cannon Beach for an afternoon of hiking in Ecola State Park or gallery-hopping along the picturesque downtown streets.

Vacasa - Vacation Rentals Made Easy:
Professionally managed and cleaned homes
Local assistance 24/7 for emergencies
Secure INSTANT booking
Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.
Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family��s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website����could be handled by a specialized central support team.
Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
Rockaway is a great beach for walking- nice long uninterrupted stretch of beach.
This cottage is in a nice central location.
The house was the perfect size, the Twin Rocks at the neighborhood beach were gorgeous, the beach was not nearly empty, and the grill and outdoor table are perfect for nice family meals. i love the vintage persian rugs in the house and the old photographs, it is so cute! We had trouble from the rental company trying to get ahold of someone to get the lock box code to the house.
This little house was perfect for us!
My husband and I were married in a little church in Rockaway Beach.
I found this house online on a whim. I needed an affordable house near Rockaway as kind of a base for our little family. Wow! What a gem! More then exceeded my expectations. The old family photographs on the dining room wall of the house and really made the house even more special. I loved the old, cozy feeling. The kitchen was bright and well stocked. Loved the décor. Used the big fireplace 2 nights. Our family of 6 were comfortable. Our 2 4 -year- olds and dog used the large back deck and yard. It was a short walk to the beautiful, secluded, large beach. I loved hearing the frogs in the pond and the crickets. I loved the sound of the train rumbling by.
I would highly recommend this house.
Also, VRBO was so easy to work with. I had to call a few times. Once when the kennel arrangements for my dog fell through and we ended up having to bring the dog, then when we decided we wanted to extend our stay by one night. I was very impressed with the service and prompt response and how easy they made everything.
The whole experience made my wedding weekend even more special.
We spent 3 days at this cottage and enjoyed our time. The cottage is smaller than it appears and the stairs in the pictures go nowhere, so dont count on another floor. The bedrooms were small but didn't spend much time in them. TV and wifi worked great when we had a rainy day. Washer and dryer came in handy. Only has one frying pan so made preparing meals a little tricky. Property clean but access to the beach is accross the street thru another person peoperty and 100 feet of path before ocean was in sight.
Next time I will look for a place with ocean view or easier access.
Very close to the beach and just down the way there are local shops and restaurants. The street is quiet, so if you open the windows you can hear the ocean while you sleep. Kitchen was fully stocked. Very convenient that there is a washer and dryer for laundry in the house. The wireless network listed in the book was incorrect, but information was on the new router in the front room so very easy to connect and had great signal strength. There is soo much to do along this part of the coast its hard to list everything you have at your fingertips.
