Charming Cottage w/Central Location, Mountain Views & Beach Access Across Street

This Rockaway Beach vacation rental is a budget-friendly way to have a fantastic coastal getaway! With an amazing location close to the beach, space for six guests, and all the comforts of home, you will have an unforgettable time here.

Located right in the center of Rockaway Beach, this home is within an easy 10-minute walk of almost every business in town, including restaurants, shops, and a market. Even better, beach access is just a one-minute stroll north at the end of 2nd Street, so you won't have to go far to enjoy a walk on the sand!

As soon as you step into this house you will notice the comfortable atmosphere and the nautical decor. This particular listing is for the Captain's Cottage section of this duplex. You can also rent the other half, the 'Captain's Loft,' or the entirety of the home ,'Captain's Quarters,' if you're traveling with a large group.

Have a seat in the living room and chat with the other visitors, or flip on the TV and watch some cable or use the DVD player and selection of DVDs to have a movie night. In this home you will also have WiFi access, as well as board games and books available for your use. You will even have a private laundry area, which will come in handy if anyone's clothes get a little dirty while playing on the beach or exploring town.

With a full kitchen, the cook in your group will have no trouble preparing dinner here! Complete with all major appliances - even a dishwasher for easy cleanup - and plenty of cooking tools and serviceware, all you need to do is bring your own groceries and whip up some delicious meals. A filling breakfast of eggs and pancakes is a perfect way to fuel up for a morning spent walking on the beach! Just past the kitchen is a dining area with space for six people at the table, so you can all sit down together and enjoy and share a meal together.

A full bathroom has a tub/shower combination, so you can choose between a refreshing shower or a more relaxing bubble bath. This home has two bedrooms: one with a cozy queen-size bed, and the other with two twin beds. In the living room is a fold-out sofabed, so altogether this home can accommodate six guests. This part of the home does not have a garage, but there is space for two cars to park on the street.

Because this home has such a central location, you can easily walk all around town! Spend the morning on the beach, building sand castles, flying kites, beachcombing, and exploring the coastline. When you get hungry, head into town and get some fish and chips at Grumpy's Cafe. After that, spend some time visiting local antique stores and gift shops, then make sure to return to the beach in time to see the marvelous sunset over the ocean.

If you feel like driving to a larger coastal city, wonderful Tillamook is just a quick 20-minute trip south along the highway. There you will have ample restaurants to choose from, as well as a golf course, museums, shops, and of course the famous Tillamook Cheese Factory. Around the area you can also go fishing or crabbing in the Tillamook Bay, take a trip over to the Cape Meares State Park for a gander at the lighthouse, or simply drive around and explore anything that catches your eye.

When you return to Rockaway Beach, have a seat in your comfortable, centrally located Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental and rest up for another day of adventures!

Loved the location
Kendall W. Jan 2022
Always enjoy staying in rockaway. This home was clean and well stocked. Only issue we had was when the town went dark from a storm. Got a little cold, but it’s definitely not something in control of anyone.
Manager response:
Kendall, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed our beautiful cottage! We apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay with us. We hope to host you for a truly carefree 5-star getaway in the future!
Christine V. Dec 2021
Decided to spend our sons 3rd birthday at a beach house. This turned out perfect for us. Location was close to everything walking distance. Including the beach. House was nice and spacious. Great place to unwind & still get that home feeling. Good memories made with my family. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
John V. Sep 2021
It was bigger than I expected. I got it because I wanted an oven to cook with.
Kathleen D. Aug 2021
We loved being able to walk to so many attractions/activities. The kids looked forward to the train passing by and ran to the window to wave every time (three trips during daylight hours only). The house was clean and accommodating--felt like home. Thanks for a great vacation!
Michelle G. Jul 2021
You have all the amenities you need for a fun getaway! The musty smell took some getting used to, but other than that we were very comfortable. We brought our own sharp knives as recommended by prior renters and everything else was provided for. Just a short walk to the beach! We had the best time! Would rent again.
Manager response:
Hi Michelle! Thank you so much for letting us know about the musty smell in the house. I have let the manager know and they will look into getting if fixed. I am so glad you had a great vacation! I hope you choose a Vacasa house for your next vacation!
Tim P. Jun 2021
The location is ideal for a beach get away. The rooms are well kept and the bathroom is roomy. The coffee nook up front was a good place to sit in the mornings and evenings. Beach is 2 minutes walk away and multiple restaurants and shopping
Jeramy F. Jun 2021
The location was great and we loved the smaller town. The house was great and perfect size for our family.
Linda C. Jun 2021
We three friends throughly enjoyed our stay at the Captain's Cottage in Rockaway Beach. So close to the beach and fun shops in downtown Rockaway. The Cottage has all the amenities that are nessecary for a beach visit, including for fun a kite, beach toys, games, puzzles and books.
Jodi K. Jun 2021
Lots of space, close to the beach
Tamara F. Jun 2021
For the price, this cabin suited our needs. We were a family of four adults. Beds were decently comfortable. Bathroom was clean and nice (rather large for the size of the cabin). Furnishings were threadbare, but functional. It would be nice to have a fourth chair, or another couch, so 4 adults could lounge comfortably in the living room.
Manager response:
Hi Tamara, thank you for staying with us! We are happy to hear that home suited your needs, and was comfortable and clean. We appreciate you bringing the condition of the furnishings to our attention. Your feedback about the functionality of the furniture provided is also very helpful. We have shared your suggestions with our local management so that they may work with the homeowner on making necessary upgrades. We hope to welcome you back in the near future!
NANCY W. Jan 2021
The house was very cozy, we will definitely try to get this house again. Side note, you will need sharp knives, and on our trip the house was really cold when we got there, and no hair dryer. There is a start to your shower needs so need to bring those items. Knowing that one would have a successful stay!!
Danielle J. Dec 2020
We have stayed here twice and it was great in the summer and winter. Just a quick 3 min walk to the beach access. House is well stocked with extra blankets and bedding. The chair in the living room is more comfortable than it looks as is the couch.
Maleah E. Sep 2020
We loved how close it was to the beach.
Ada louise C. Sep 2020
The location was perfect and I loved the house. I know the moisture is very high at the coast but the windows need a good cleaning around the seals. Your price is great and you had more then enough towels, dishes and ready to cook what ever we needed. Thank you.
Cristina N. Aug 2020
The home has everything you needed and in great location! Only problem we had was the overwhelming smell that lingers in the house....other than that it was great!
Manager response:
Hi, Cristina! We have placed an Ozinator in the home to help remove any lingering smells. Thank you!
Amanda K. Jun 2020
House was clean and bigger than it looked! The bathroom was super nice - and they had lots and lots of towels! (a big plus in our book)!! Games to play, Netflix, and we didn't have to go to the laundry mat. We will definitely stay here again!
Robert H. Jun 2020
Lots of towels and blankets if needed
Kelley H. Mar 2020
This little cottage was perfect for our family of 4! I loved the on-site laundry and convenient location to beach and shops. The only downside is the kitchen. The coffee maker barley works, it took forever to brew a whole pot and I kept having to add water because most of the water steams out of the lid before brewing. Also if you plan on cooking you may want to consider bringing your own knives, the sharpest one available is a butter knife.
Other than that, the house was clean and comfortable with extra supplies and bedding.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Kelley. We are glad to hear this cottage worked well for your family. We appreciate you bringing these items to our attention, and we will work with our maintenance team to make improvements. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
William A. Dec 2019
It was more then we expected for a weekend getaway at the beach. Cutest little town with the beach just a very short walk away. Loved the cute house and kids had fun too. We will definitely be back in the summer time to see what it's like during that season. But winter was not a disappointment at all.
Laura S. Sep 2019
Our family of 4 just loved our time at this house and at Rockaway Beach. The size and layout of the house worked really well for us. Beach access is a 5 minute walk away and our kids loved waving to the train that went by several times a day.
When we arrived on a Thursday night, we noticed that several amenities that were listed on the description of the house were not actually at the house (soap, shampoo, conditioner, coffee grinder.) We called Friday morning and within an hour, a very nice and apologetic housekeeper brought us everything we needed and we were very thankful.
I do hope this house gets some maintenance dollars allocated to it because it needs a couple of (easy?) fixes: in several rooms, there are very noticeable areas of paint peeling, the bedroom doors do not have the capability to latch shut, nor do they stay shut on their own (although the bathroom door does have this capability.) One of blinds in the living room has broken slats and possibly mold on several slats. One of the wands on another set of blinds, is completely broken off, so it took some work to close the blinds.
Manager response:
Thank you for the valuable feedback. We have made the manager aware of your concerns so he was able to address them. We hope we can host you again soon!
Michael H. Aug 2019
Great location. Very clean
Kurt M. Aug 2019
Me, my wife, and 4 kids loved staying here. The proximity to the ocean is great. You can walk out the front door and have your feet wet in the ocean in under 5 minutes. The beach is beautiful with great sand. The house had everything we needed for cooking, and there are plenty of restaurants and shops around as well. A tourist train comes by a few times a day and our kids loved going out to see the old steam engine and wave at the passengers. We hope to stay here again next year!
Ian A. Jun 2019
This house is a good place to stay for many reasons. The location as it relates downtown Rockaway (a 5 minute walk), some excellent day trips and the beach (maybe a 5 minute walk) itself is excellent. The house was clean and the amenities (towels/cutlery/washing machine/dishwasher etc.) were really good. The only exception to this was the ceiling fans were all broken. We informed the management and they brought some small standing fans so all was well. Luckily for us the weather did not require more than those fans.

The little game room/nook was a big hit with the kids. The games and puzzles etc were hit and miss as to whether they had all the pieces or not.

The house’s lay out is nice. Plus for us getting to see the tourist train pass a few times a day was a lot of fun.

There were a couple small things that I would mention. The beds were, for us, not very comfortable as they were very springy and felt very used (but I know different people like different types of beds so to each their own).

Also the tv situation is very poor. The channel selection is ridiculously poor. Not a big thing as we were not there to watch tv but something that would have been nice to have had.

All in all we would definitely stay again.
Jake C. Jun 2019
This house fit our needs perfectly. Cant wait to stay again!
Shane C. Jun 2019
Location was amazing, train going by several times a day kept the kids excited all day. Beach is about 1/2 a block behind the house and down town is right across the street. Only down side was that it lacked some basic items like ovenmits and a cheese grater. Had to buy our own while we were there.
Aaron M. Jun 2019
Location was perfect! Loved the decor in the home, comfortably furnished and everything we needed. Price was right and would stay here again.
Matthew W. Apr 2019
We real enjoyed our stay. The only down fall we had was I didn't know till the arrival that it was not set up for wheel accibles. This I found out from allot of the houses we looked at. This would be great if the facilities would get one. And if and when they do I would love to come back and stay with my son.
Thank you
Matthew Walker
Julie C. Aug 2018
Worked well for our small family. Previous renters left kites and a couple of buckets for beach play that were appreciated.
Jessica T. Jul 2018
It was the perfect beach getaway for my family of 5. Close to the beach and my kids loved watching the train!!!
Colleen S. Jul 2018
The place was clean, decorated in thrift store modern. It was a good place for small children to have room to play but at $140.00 a night, a complete rip-off.
janet t. Jul 2018
Nice casita, close to the beach. Good deal for the cost.
Rebecca B. Jul 2018
We stayed there with our toddler son, generally good but a few negatives.
Pros: GREAT location, one block to the beach and an easy stroll to town.
Very clean
Liked the layout, big dining room and huge living room for lots of whole family fun
Comfy furniture, plenty of extra bedding and bath towels
Cute little nook with puzzles and games

Cons: Not much furniture. The bedrooms were small with no closet access or dresser. Just very small night stands, one room had a desk. No place to put bags or hang up clothes.
Same for entry way - hooks or a coat rack would have been really helpful, especially with so much sandy beach stuff.
Same for bathroom - we could see where towel racks had been at one time but were not replaced.

The house is by a busy road but separated by a small road and train tracks, so we felt fine having our toddler there. The train tracks were fun, just a small tourist train making a few trips mid day, we learned the schedule and my son liked to stand on the porch and wave to them.

Overall very enjoyable, just frustrating because it felt like a few small things (mainly more storage furniture) could turn this place from okay to great.
Manager response:
The towel rack has been replaced, and we have added a coat rack. Thank you!
Rob H. Apr 2018
This home is very spacious, warm and cozy! Plenty of linens, cookware, games and DVDs. Everything worked great. Never saw the train go by. We were kind of anticipating it! A little food mart is right across the road in case you forgot something. Local nic-nac and candy shops are great! One block from the Chamber of Commerce that has all info and attractions of the area. Quick and easy stroll right onto the sandy beach. The home was very quiet and warm during a wet, stormy April weekend. We will definitely be coming back! BTW, we gladly left behind a box of sandwich bags, a jar of seasoning, salt and pepper and a tub of butter. Enjoy! :)
Danielle F. Apr 2018
This place is a perfect little house full of everything you need during your stay. We had ourselves and our 5 children stay here with only 2 rooms we were still able to figure out sleeping arrangements because the house its self had lots of space. Also a bonus, the house was stocked with tons of extra blankets so it help alot.
The house is only a block and a half away from the beautiful ocean. The little town was delightful with all the little shops and restaurants. We had a great time and this house was exactly what we needed. Thank you!!
Peter F. Sep 2017
This was a great rental very well worth the price. My wife and I, along with three young men (sons 17,19.24) stayed here for a few days. The two younger stayed in the room with twin beds, the older son slept in the living room. Short walk to the beach, bakeries, grocery store. A tourist train goes by in front of the house 3-4 times a day - more entertaining than annoying. Otherwise a quiet area with convenience all around. The houses are tucked close together, so if folks are loudly talking or laughing in next door houses it can be heard; overall was not a problem and will definitely be back.
Joseph D. Aug 2017
Rockaway is a quiet town. We were somewhat perplexed by the number of shops that looked to be in business but were closed during regular hours.
The location is nice, with good access for day trips up and down the coast.
Arnell E. Aug 2017
We arrived in the dark and found it a bit challenging to gain access. There is more than one key holder, and apparently the old ones were not removed. This was a little confusing, but it may have been in the letter. If you are renting this house, be sure to re-read the letter before you arrive. Also, the train is charming and we enjoyed it. It's a local site-seeing train, not your ordinary every day type of train. Overall we enjoyed staying in Rockaway Beach and would probably rent this house again, now that we know about these hurdles that can be avoided.
Jason G. Aug 2017
Home worked perfect for a couple days for my two children and I. While Rockaway is in a central location to sites north and south, don't forget to check out Rockaway beach and all it has to offer. Fun shops and good places to eat. Plus the beach is perfect for sunsets or sitting around a campfire. Great get away.
Connie S. Jul 2017
Our extended family really enjoyed our five day stay here, the short walk to the beach was great, made it very convenient for this Grandma to go several times a day with the grand kids, giving their parents some time to relax. The town was busy, and this house is right in the middle of it, but we expected that so it was fine. It was a short and pretty drive to Tillimook to Fred Meyers for groceries.
Kristin W. Jul 2017
This is a nice little home. Worked great for our family. Loved being close to the beach. The train tracks are right there but it is only a fun little scenic train. Doesn't go by much, but the one time we were there and it did, we stood out on the porch and waved. My kids loved it. It is an older home but worked for our family :) My kids loved the kite and games there for them to play with. Loved Rockaway beach. Almost like our own private beach.
Mary D. Jul 2017 was so efficient and helpful.
Lester J. Jun 2017
We enjoyed our stay in Rockaway Beach. Property could use a large strainer and pot for pasta. We appreciated the supply of dishwasher soap, laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap. Would stay here again.
Marissa H. May 2017
This house was great for our weekend at the beach. Just a block from the beach and from town, it is the perfect location. I was nervous about the train, but it wasn't much of a bother - we were usually out when it came by, and if we were inside our toddler loved to run to the window and wave. We would definitely stay here again!
Silas C. Apr 2017
We've stayed here a couple times now. It's just right for what our family of four needs. Our son loves to see the trains go by, and our daughter loves that the beach is just a block away. Great little place to get away!
Veronica S. Mar 2017
Make sure to bring your spices if your like to cook : )
Carol C. Oct 2016
Everything was great. We will definitely be back. Thank you
Wendy N. Aug 2016
Nice comfortable cottage. Not too far from the beach.
Joanie C. Aug 2016
The location of the beach cabin was great for us - close walking distance to coffee, the store, and the beach. Nice to be in the heart of everything!
Chris G. Jul 2016
Nicely situated for day trips, but not very well equipped. Bring your own salt & pepper.
Gloria W. May 2016
love the coast
Jessica R. Apr 2016
The house is nice and cozy within walking distance to the beach. It is also within walking distance to the shops and restaurants which was nice. Our stay was very relaxing. The house is right next to train tracks but it only runs during certain times during the day.
Cynthia L. Sep 2015
Description of the property was ok. The train track was not an issue as it is only used by a steam train for sight seeing during the day.
Natalie J. Aug 2015
We had a wonderful vacation at this charming cottage! The location was perfect, the amenities were great, and we made many happy memories!
