Located right between the ocean and Lake Lytle, this home is perfect for any beach bums in your crew, plus it's only one mile away from Rockaway Beach proper! Spend the day outdoors in the sun along the sands, head to a nearby state park, or just relax in the cute coastal town.
With large windows, views of the waves crashing in, and beach themes throughout, this place is relaxed and easy to enjoy!
This space is the lower half of a larger house, but it has everything you could need without having to interact with the top half! The living room is open and spacious with ocean views, comfortable couches, and a TV where you can watch cable. The dining area is in the corner with room for six people to enjoy some food together while the sea turns out the window, and there's another smaller table with space for four on the other side of the room.
The cook in your group will appreciate the kitchen with lots of cupboard space, cookware, and all the amenities to prepare a fantastic beachfront meal for everyone. There's a vinyl floor that's easy to clean up, as well as a dishwasher, pots and pans, and more awesome views.
With three bedrooms on this level, there are plenty of places to stretch out and get a good night's rest! One bedroom has three twin beds, the second has a queen, and the final room features a full-size bed. There's one full bathroom on this level, as well as a private washer/dryer, so all of your beach gear can stay warm and dry overnight. Altogether, up to seven guests (six adults at most) and two dogs are welcome to stay here, though please note that a nightly pet fee applies if you would like to bring your furry friends.
Everyone will stay entertained during any hour of the day with WiFi, cable, board games, and books at your fingertips. There's also a fantastic deck where you can watch the sunset in the evening, or sip your coffee in the morning.
With a wonderful location close to the water, you can walk straight down to the beach from here! Spend the day soaking up the sun rays with a cooler full of cold drinks, head out to catch some surf, or try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding - it's all available! You can also rent out some gear in town, head out to sea on a fishing charter, go whale-watching for the day, or get some BBQ going at Lake Lytle.
Manhattan Beach is just down the road with views of the famous Twin Rocks, and Rockaway Beach is super close to several beautiful state parks like Nehalem Bay State Park (12 miles north) where you can hike and explore! Oswald West State Park is 15 miles north, and Tillamook Bay is about 20 miles south where you'll find more awesome activity options, the Tillamook Cheese Factory, shopping, and bars. Rockaway Beach also has several options for great seafood and shopping!
2 dogs welcome in this home. No other animals are allowed without specific Vacasa approval.

We brought my grandmother and infant with us and both enjoyed the view of the ocean! It was relaxing with lots of games and movie options as well as take out menus to every local restaurant! Incredibly clean!
Sarah L.Nov 2021
Fantastic oceanfront views (except for placement of TV blocking part of view). Very comfortable and clean environment. Well equipped kitchen. Great beach for walking and running.
Leanne S.Nov 2021
We have rented this home for 35 years!!! The location couldn't be better. Upgrades over the years have been well-done and just when needed. Price mid-week was quite reasonable.
jill w.Oct 2021
Great location views are amazing. The kitchen was fabulous lots of good pans and utensils. Beds comfy. Water pressure was great in shower. Loved every part of this house. Is a duplex but had to ourselves nothing was booked above so that was great. There are rock steps down to the beach some could need help down but back up was a breeze. Love this house!
Linda D.Sep 2021
Nice and quiet. Wonderful view.
James P.Sep 2021
We loved the view and the sound of the waves. Quiet and relaxing .
Sarah H.Mar 2021
The views! Can’t beat those big windows right over the ocean! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed. Would stay here again:)
Yvette H.Feb 2021
Loved all the windows.. very beautiful view.. wished I could have stayed longer..
Diane S.Dec 2020
Loved how the many large windows brought the ocean right in. No matter the weather, you are at the beach! The house is comfy, warm, and the kitchen has a good set of pans, etc. for cooking anything you bring. Could use some measuring cups and measuring spoons, so bring what you need until they get some. Also, very few spices/herbs. Comfy beds, nice towels. Lots of puzzles, games and videos. A pretend fireplace (with TV on top) is kitchy but is actually a heater that works great! Try it! It's an easy walk across yard to the beach, but there are tricky large boulder riprap 'steps' to get down. These are uneven, and if you have trouble with that kind of thing it will be hard. No handrail. Other easier access to beach would be a ways away down the street. It feels like a family home and that many people have had great times there. It was clean. We plan to return!
Thank you for your review, Diane! We have ordered measuring cups and spoons to add to the kitchen inventory. We hope to see you again!
Megan P.Nov 2020
Loved staying here so much! Incredible view... clean, kitchen well stocked, and did I mention the view?! The pictures don’t even do it justice. I will definitely stay here again. Loved it!
It sleeps 6 not 7. One bedroom s bed is a small full. We would love it if the owners would put a Queen bed in that room please. The dryer needs to be fixed. It works but there is a very loud noise while drying. The blinds in the master bedroom need to be replaced there are missing pieces/gaps. Nobody was in the upstairs while we were here for four days. From other reviews I get the sense that there usually isn’t.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!
Hi, Megan! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The dryer is working well, and we have measured the blinds for replacement. Thank you!
Joan O.Oct 2020
Love all the windows in the front. Plenty of room.
Stephen S.Oct 2020
Can't beat the five big picture windows facing the ocean. Have been going to this house for over 30 years. It has been remodeled dramatically. Now, it is very livable but seems like it could stand a little improving. Tape on the kitchen floor, window coverings a little lopsided. But those are minor details compared to what this house offers. RIGHT ON THE BEACH & DOG FRIENDLY!!!! VERY CLEAN TOO.
Rebecca R.Sep 2020
The views are incredible!! Exactly what we needed to recharge!
Meg D.Aug 2020
Having not been able to vacation until August, my boys, husband and dog Buddy were thrilled to stay at Sweethaven. The big windows to view the ocean, the ocean front access and fully stocked kitchen (plates, utensils, pots) to cook meals was amazing. The beds were not as comfortable as we hoped them to be, but we managed. The washer and dryer are VERY LOUD, but functional. People on the beach kept distance apart from each other and there are a few nice places to get food in town. I would recommend you bring all your food with you, as it is pricey at the convenience store.
Sarah Z.Aug 2020
House was well appointed and comfortable. Kitchen was updated and plenty of supplies and cookware to make dinners. The sitting and eating area is perfect. Beach location and views can’t be beat. Master bedroom mattress could use replacing as it was hard and warn out. Addition of a half bath would allow for more people to come to the house. Otherwise really no complaints and a lot of positives. We will be back!
Wendy C.Jun 2020
The view was incredible. The home has been well loved but cozy and comfortable. Just a few steps from the beach, perfect.
Mike R.Jun 2020
ON the beach. Great views. Quiet neighborhood. Has a bit of an old smell in the unit but great home. We’ll be back.
Stephen S.Mar 2020
This is a great house on the sand with six big picture windows welcoming the Pacific Ocean. Well-equipped kitchen. Very easy living.
Theo M.Jan 2020
Beautiful views and easy access to beach. Great location
Elizabeth s.Oct 2019
The only problem was we needed at least another half bathroom. There were 4 of us, and one full bathroom just isn't enough. The view was Awesome and the house was clean and very nice.
Timothy C.Oct 2019
The view and quiet location were awesome. Just a few steps and right on the beach. The home had comfortable beds and furniture and the house was quiet. We were the on a blustery windy week and when you were in for the night it was quiet. We really liked the home and would stay there again.
Tina D.Sep 2019
Great view. Comfortable beds. Fully stocked and updated kitchen.
Terra 2.Aug 2019
First of all, staying in Rockaway Beach is a win. They have everything you need and then some. Sweethaven is a great house with the most amazing wall-to-wall window views. You don't even have to leave the house and still feel like you're outside. But, trust me, you want to be outside! The beach is wide, clean and less congested than some other locations. The house was set up well to accommodate several people. Loved the extra TV in the master bedroom. Fully stocked kitchen made family dinners a snap. This home is a duplex, but it was vacant upstairs while we were there. Don't miss the amazing sunsets here. Other must dos: Head nearby to Kelly's Marina and grab some fresh live crab; then drive into town and pick up some crab cakes from the Old Oregon Smokehouse. We will definitely be back!
Valerie L.Aug 2019
Loved the view from the windows that stretched from living room to dining room and easy beach access. The kitchen had great appliances and necessary implements. The steps down to the beach were navigable save for the first one that required some negotiation. The side deck was small especially with the huge grill that seemed too ominous to even entertain using! There were plenty of outdoor chair options. Comfortable place to stay and enjoy the ever-changing shoreline!
Gwynne W.Jun 2019
We just loved the house could see the beach from all windows. The house was clean and great, We hope to rent it next year. Lots of room have sister in walker and she would move around great.
Abhishek P.Apr 2019
Location!Location!Location . This home is superclose to the beach. We had a wonderful weekend stay with family. home is well equipped with games and entertainment. Would definitely stay again.
Ryan H.Apr 2019
Loved the view and the beach access
Melanee B.Apr 2019
I loved the windows that gave me a great view of the ocean.
Henry H.Mar 2019
The house has an amazing five-window view on the ocean. Very clean, comfortable and fully supplied. We look forward to returning in the future.
Steps down to the beach are for the sure-footed, but steps with railings two blocks away.
Kim H.Jan 2019
This home is in a great location and was the perfect space for our family. We’ll definitely return again!
Cheryl C.Nov 2018
We just LOVED our stay at Sweethaven! The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well supplied, even for our Thanksgiving feast! The ocean front view was fabulous, rain or shine.
patti m.Oct 2018
I can't say enough about the on the beach view. The wall of windows plus a North and South window really opens the ocean view.
Kate G.Oct 2018
Nothing to complain about really. Didn't have any weird smells that are common to older homes. The home is clean, comfortable and well maintained. Appliances and lights all work and furniture is in pretty good condition. The bed in 'captain' room is a little firm but ok. You get the bottom floor of a two story home. No-one seemed to be in the upper floor during our stay. Beach access is a few steps to a rock erosion wall and then down about 6 big rock steps. We had a great stay. Thank you!
Michael I.Sep 2018
The wall to wall windows give you the best panoramic view of the entire beach! Watching the sun set DIRECTLY in front of you while sitting on the couch is breathtaking. Furniture and beds are homey and cozy and town is less than a mile walk down the beach. Rinse the seaside windows each morning with the hose available for optimal view. Note to owners: only request would be to clean off the deck and prepare for sitting outside with morning coffee. Also, we brought steaks we were hoping to BBQ but the unit on the deck was too scary looking to try lighting.
Laurel P.Jul 2018
Lovely little home. Had everything that we needed and we loved the view and direct private access to the beach.
The one thing we were a little surprised about was that based on the pictures we expected to have both levels of the home. It is actually two different units with the top unit being a private unit for the owners and the bottom level being the guest rental. We were looking forward to the balcony but upon arrival we discovered that it was not part of the rental unit. Not a big deal for us but it was a surprise. Still very happy with our stay.
Scott J.Jun 2018
This was a comfortable, well equipped home with gorgeous views and convenient access to the beach!
Carlie H.Jun 2018
The view is amazing! We loved watching the sunset and the waves during the day! Easy walk to the beach for us and the dogs! It was a little warm and the AC wasnt working, but there was a fan and that helped! Overall, a really wonderful experience !
John P.May 2018
Wonderful visit to this lovely place. Everything we needed. Stunning views. Everything was perfect. We have spent time at Sweethaven for many years, always delights.
Patti M.Mar 2018
We really enjoyed our stay, the view can't be beat.
James G.Oct 2017
Had a great stay. Beach was just out the front door. Be careful negotiating the rock steps to the beach. Very comfortable house.
Jayme M.Jun 2017
The house is in a great location. Loved having a washer and dryer and a dishwasher. It was easy to gain access to the home and it was big enough for when the weather wasn't so great.
The cleaning fee seems pretty steep considering they request dishwasher to be ran and the beds stripped before you leave. As well as grimy cupboards.
James O S.Jun 2017
except for the uncomfortable beds, everything was great
Melany G.Jun 2017
This is a nice, comfortable, laid back spot. Immediate access to the beach, where we saw a whale and sea lions!
Tracy M.May 2017
We loved the location and for our family of 4 the house was perfect for a getaway.
Linda P.Mar 2017
Two of my sisters and myself decided to rent sweethaven none of us had ever been here before we loved it beds were comfortable view was best ever and only a few steps to the beach it is everything the picture looked like we are already looking to make a trip back here
David M.Feb 2017
This home has the most amazing 180 degree view of the ocean. Perfect for watching the coastal storms roll through or enjoy a sunny day at the beach
Jane M.Oct 2016
There were four adults and we enjoyed our stay. The view was great.
short walk to beach. We would stay here again.
Julie H.Sep 2016
Great family home for a beach getaway!
Barber B.Sep 2016
Great view, beach access wonderful
Carolyn B.Aug 2016
Things that need maintenance: Broken dining table chair. Only 1 key was provided. Need at least two. Windows were very dirty. I found the hose on cleaner and cleaned them, and it made all the difference. Water pressure is too low for that house. I suggest you replace the PRV valve, which is probably the problem. They go bad after some years and you have no pressure at the hose, or in the shower. The PRV valve sits at the street behind the main cut off valve.
Instead of all blue colors everywhere, try some bright accent contrast colors against the blue. This would make the unit more pleasing and happy. There are lots of other little things, but for a beach cottage they don't really matter. You just want "location, decent beds, a barbecue" which your unit has. My wife said there is no blender as advertised.
Donna W.Aug 2016
it was the best!!!
Nancy M.Aug 2016
The house has a beautiful view of the ocean through big windows. We enjoyed just sitting and looking out at the ocean when we weren't walking the beach.
Mary D.Aug 2016
Loved the view and easy access to the beach, which is one of my priorities. There are some issues with the cleanliness of the house. Lamps need to be dusted, move furniture and remove crumbs, all sorts of junk has fell behind the dressers and the stove top could use a good scrubbing. Deck has a board that needs replaced. Some small child could get their foot stuck in it and fall down the steps. This is a safety issue. Thoroughly enjoyed the house.
Shawnie B.Jul 2016
The location of Sweethaven was perfect. The house is very comfortable and I would return!
Grace G.Jul 2016
We had a great first family vacation with our toddler. The house was clean and had everything we needed, even a pack and play and plastic dishes for our little one. The location was awesome, literally a stone staircase away from the big beach, not even a quarter mile away. My husband and I enjoyed watching the tides go in and out through the huge spanning window view while we put together puzzles we found in the house. The only thing I would change are the beds, we did not sleep well because they were so uncomfortable.
SANDRA C.Jun 2016
Perfect spot if you enjoy the beach very lovely area! House was very comfortable and warming.
Ellen B.Jun 2016
Tim E.May 2016
I took my family & parents for a Mother's Day weekend trip, and we were blown away with the view from the whole living area. Not only was the view amazing from anywhere you looked, but the house was family & pet friendly. I've stayed at other places where I was nervous to have my; this house was nice and clean, and laid out well, but it had been lived in. We loved the rock steps that led right down to the beach, and my kids (4 & 7) loved the collection of puzzles and games. This is definitely a place I would stay again!
Joy F.May 2016
We loved our stay here in every way except for the problem of getting the Dish TV system to work. For most people, TV is not an issue because most of us go to the beach to get away from TV, but it mattered to us because I am preparing for back surgery. Great place to stay otherwise.
Sarah P.Mar 2016
We loved staying at sweethaven. The location of the house was the best. The beach was our back yard and it wasn't over crowded even during spring break.
One thing we missed was a fire place.
Katie B.Feb 2016
The view was great, place was clean, but the DVD/VHS was broken, the freezer didn't freeze anything, the front right stovetop burner never would get hot and the front left burner basically had 2 settings, warm and burn, which made it challenging to cook a basic meal. A couple of heaters didn't work. We couldn't find the gas grill until we were leaving. It was inside the building in a supply closet of all places. The radio was a cassette player with no cords or hookups for a cell phone. The wifi didn't work well in the bedrooms. You couldn't watch the on-demand or netflix features of the cable tv because it wasn't connected to the internet. I'm hoping they make it right with us because for the price we paid, it was disappointing.
Thank you for sharing your review. We appreciate the detailed feedback and have shared it with our property manager. They will inspect the Media player, stove and freezer and make sure that they are in working order going forward. Thank you again for choosing Vacasa.
Ryan H.Feb 2016
We've stayed in many rentals, this is by far one of my favorites!! We definitely want to come back
David G.Jun 2015
We loved the location right on the beach with beautiful views! The rental had everything we needed to be comfortable. No complaints at all.
