Newly Remodeled, Oceanfront Home with Ocean Views and WiFi - Close to the Sand

Fresh from a remodel, this luxurious Rockaway Beach vacation rental provides a spectacular coastal getaway to you and five of your friends or family members.

The beach comes to you during your stay here as this lovely abode. Located on Pacific Street, driving to and from the many nearby attractions for a day of fun is a snap. And with Lake Lytle just to the east and Rockaway proper less than a mile away, this home will quickly become a favorite vacation spot for everyone.

Words and pictures hardly do this gorgeous home justice. Pristine contemporary furnishings, beachy grey floors, and stainless steel appliances bring a sense of elegance and are beautifully enhanced by the calming blue walls and large windows.

Take a seat on one of the grey sofas and kick your feet up on the leather and wood ottoman/coffee table to watch a movie on the flatscreen TV, or just take in the stunning ocean views from the enormous windows. Cable, a Blu-ray player, and WiFi are included here so feel free to bring along your favorite movie or easily look up directions to a new restaurant.

Sip your morning coffee sitting at the solid wood dining table for six while gazing out at the crashing waves, or grab a deck of cards for a fun game night! The back deck has wood lounge chairs and folding chairs so you can even cozy up outside to listen to the sounds of the ocean as the sun sets.

Prepping meals is a dream in this gorgeous kitchen complete with stainless steel major appliances, an island stove top, crisp white cabinets, and smooth quartzite countertops. There's no need to waste money going out to eat for every meal each day when you have everything you need to create delicious meals right at home! Also included are a microwave and plenty of cookware and dishes.

For your convenience, the half bathroom just off the main living area also has a stacking washer and dryer, so feel free to pack light and have peace of mind that you'll always have clean clothes for the next day's activities.

The master bedroom is nicely designed and furnished with a king-size bed. Rinse off the sand before hopping into bed in the attached bathroom's stand-alone shower.

Upstairs is another bathroom with a stand-alone shower, a queen-size bed in a bedroom, and two twin beds in the loft. With four beds, this home can comfortably sleep all six guests, which ensures everyone is well rested for another day of sightseeing and hiking through the lush green forest of Northern Oregon. All the beds have comfy carpeting for extra comfort.

Between surfing, swimming, and soaking up some sun on the sandy shores, browsing through boutiques, and finding the best eatery in town, you can all stay happily occupied, but there's definitely much more to see if you do feel like exploring a little farther out. Fishing charters, crabbing, and more can be found 20 miles south at Tillamook Bay, and don't miss out on taking a tour and sampling amazing cheeses at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. You can even snap fantastic pictures of the famous Haystack Rock while hiking at Oswald West State Park, just 15 miles away.

For a beach getaway in style and with all the comforts of home, book this family-friendly Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental.

Tim B. Jul 2021
Very nice house, furnished well with all the amenities you’ll need. Right on the beach - kids loved exploring. Plenty of room for our family if 5. Would definitely recommend. There’s not a lot going on in Rockaway beach so you will need to travel 25-40 minutes north to cannon beach or south to tilamook for restaurants/bars.
Catherine S. Jun 2021
The house was exactly as it looked online- which made everyone happy. The dishes were squeaky clean (this is very important for those of us who have children with several food allergies), as was the rest of the house, making it very comfortable. You can’t beat the location. Definitely a lot of good vibes in this house but I selfishly don’t want to write anymore for fear the next time we want to visit it will be booked. Great stay- highly recommend!
Gwynne W. May 2021
love this house and the 2 1/2 baths, washer and dryer. deck was great even my wheelchair sister enjoyed the deck. would like to rent this house again. Good beach excess wonderful place.
Marilyn L. Nov 2020
The house is warm, cozy and inviting. The view is amazing. We we fortunate to have sunny November weather and on our final day there we were treated to a huge wind storm which made for fantastic wave watching. This was a perfect place for 3 friends to get away and enjoy the beauty of the Oregon coast. We will return.
Michael N. Nov 2020
Wonderful layout and amenities, lots of towels and blankets. Beautiful kitchen with a view, and an open plan with the main room. Panoramic ocean views, and a wonderful deck. It says there is parking for two vehicles on the property, but I don't see how you could fit two unless they are smaller vehicles. So if you have larger vehicles, you might want to seek clarification. Great place and great location.
Lorianne H. Nov 2020
We loved the location and and views! This home is nicely updated with perfect beach access. We plan to visit again soon!
Heather L. Oct 2020
Beach front bliss! Very comfortable and clean.
Chris O. Oct 2020
We had a good time here. The remodeled kitchen was nice. Great views, nice amenities.
David S. Sep 2020
The proximity to the beach, of course.
Room for 6, though we only had five.
The availability of the gas grill!!
Matt F. Jul 2020
Only stayed for two nights but enjoyed every second of it. Great place right on the beach!
Sharon S. Jul 2020
The view was amazing, kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and what a great place to watch the fireworks!
Kearsten K. Jun 2020
This was a wonderful getaway for our family. The beach front location is spectacular and it was the perfect size place for us to relax and enjoy some time together. We will be going back in the future!
Byron S. Mar 2020
Beautiful home, beautiful beach
tiffany M. Feb 2020
Loved the place. The view was amazing and the bedroom was quiet and dark. Perfect space to watch the stormy coast weather!
Heather H. Nov 2019
The views were awesome! Clean house, comfy beds and great beach access! It fit our family of 5 perfectly. We’d recommend this house for sure!
David S. Oct 2019
The view from the living area and the deck is as good as it gets. Falling asleep in the comfortable king size bed to the sound of the surf was wonderful.
Catherine R. Oct 2019
Kristoffer G. Oct 2019
Not our first trip to this part of the Oregon coast but our first time staying in Whalewatcher.

It was spotless clean, well appointed, nicely updated in terms of kitchen & decor, facilities, etc. Obviously an amazing view and location.

Definitely recommended!
ANNA M. Oct 2019
The home had everything we needed to cook, play and relax. The beds were very comfortable and the showers were good. Since we were there the last week of September all was quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
Shellia B. Oct 2019
Sitting on the deck and drinking a glass of wine while watching the sunset and listening to the surf.
Christian K. Jul 2019
This home was just perfect for a relaxation on the beach. I highly recommend staying here. With any luck, I'll be back!
April E. Jul 2019
We loved this home and the location was stunning! The views were gorgeous and the house was clean, cozy and relaxing with all the amenities included. We will definitely book again. Highly recommend.
Christina H. Jun 2019
What a view!! Contemporary yet comfy - this house was perfect for our family of 4! Clean and a ton of creature comforts! We would absolutely stay again if able!
Carmen V. Jun 2019
Our family loved this home. It is small but doesn’t really feel that way due to the efficient layout and the wall of windows. Sitting on the sofa you feel as if you are on the beach, the waves are that close!
Cheryl S. Jun 2019
The home was spotless and fully stocked. The views are incredible- it was so nice to sit and drink a cup of coffee or sip on wine and watch the waves crash in. We took our daughter and her husband and our grandson. It was a perfect family space. They even set up fire wood for us on the beach! The only downer was the fridge and microwave were cleaned with some verrrry floral smelling cleaner which should not be used in a fridge or microwave (only baking soda or vinegar and water!) so we could barely use the fridge without wrapping our food in lots of layers so the smell didn’t take over our food. Other than that everything was seamless and we will definitely be back to the Whalewatcher :)
Dorothy S. May 2019
Perfect place for a girls getaway. Midweek- very quit and peaceful, had the beach to ourselves. House views are amazing, as good as it gets. Loved the rugged and natural beach access. House has everything we needed and beds were comfortable. No issues with ants. Decor is light fresh sn very clean. Hope to stay here again.
Brad V. Apr 2019
Beautiful view, very nice place and clean. I will stay here again for sure.
Maggie S. Apr 2019
Four of us stayed at the Whalewatcher and loved our time there. It is quiet, comfortable and cozy.
Kim L. Apr 2019
Gorgeous setting, nice and centrally located on the northern coast. Lots of amenities for families (puzzles, games, movies, etc) for rainy or quiet days. Great access to the beach. Very comfortable and probably our favorite part of our trip to OR! A hidden gem; thanks!
Vickie C. Jan 2019
Nice accommodations with a great ocean view and easy access to the beach.
susan d. Dec 2018
Loved everything about this spot!
Niela M. Dec 2018
Location is right on the beach. We enjoyed this house very much - it's location on the beach is a big plus for us. The 2nd bedroom is upstairs and private from the downstairs bedroom. Each bedroom has its own bathroom plus their is an extra one downstairs for everyone to use.
A few more dishes would be helpful as we do a lot of cooking and kept running out.
Linda A. Nov 2018
I’d looked a long time for the perfect house on the beach for a girl’s weekend. This fit the bill. It was comfortable for the 5 of us, tastefully decorated and very relaxing. Although the beach access was close, my one friend with RA had a difficult time climbing up and down the rip-rap. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer weather as well. Perfect!!
Lori L. Oct 2018
My husband and I enjoyed 2 restful nights at the beach while staying at the 'Whalewatcher". Having the entire length of the front of the house with ocean views was spectacular. Who cared about the weather? We had sun and rain (hello Oregon) and no matter what was happening we were content. We enjoyed sitting the Adirondack chairs on the deck in the sun and we enjoyed reading on the couches while it was raining. We also enjoyed our walks on the beach because it was just steps away. We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you for such a rejuvenating trip to the beach.
Deborah P. Oct 2018
House was perfect for our needs and likes. Beach front, comfortable inside from the living room to the kitchen, to the beds and the extra bathroom plus a washer and dryer. We traveled south and north of Rockaway Beach so location was ideal. We will be back.
Jill Z. Oct 2018
We had a girls weekend here and it was perfect. The house is super cute and right on the beach and we loved it!
Pam P. Oct 2018
Fantastic place to stay. We enjoyed every minute of our time at the Whalewatcher. Everything was clean, updated, and the view and access to the beach was great. We will definitely be staying again.
Nicole C. Sep 2018
You're paying for the view, and what a view it was! As others have commented, it's a little challenging to get down to the beach if you have trouble walking. Also, yes there were still ants in the house, but it's on the beach. I think I counted about 20 in the two days we were there. The beds were not super comfortable, but if you like them soft, then you'll be fine.
Manager response:
We have re-treated the home for ants and apologize for any nuisance they caused our guest. Thank you!
Sally Y. Aug 2018
The oceanfront location was exactly what we were looking for. The house was updated and clean, and the beds were comfortable. It was our first time staying in the town of Rockaway Beach, and it lacked the charm of Cannon Beach and other towns in the area, but it was centrally located, so we just day-tripped to those towns to sight-see. As others have mentioned, there were a few ants in the home, but we didn't really mind - just made sure we didn't leave any food out! The one - slight! - negative I will mention for this place was the parking. The listing for the house said there were parking places for 2 vehicles. I couldn't tell this from the photos, but it is parallel parking in a narrow strip between the garage and street, and we had to park our 2 cars practically touching bumpers in order for them to not encroach on the neighbors' driveways. We made it work, but it gave me a little bit of stress. We would definitely stay there again!
Buff W. Aug 2018
This is a newly remodeled updated looking bungalow right on the beach. Beautiful views and quiet at night.
Shana S. Aug 2018
The house was cute and cozy, and the location was amazing. The view of the ocean was absolutely stunning! We would have rated our stay a 5, but there is an ant infestation in the house. The ants were mainly in the kitchen, but we also found some in the bathrooms and bedrooms. They seem to be coming from under the refrigerator. We found an ant trap, but we think more needs to be done to correct this issue. We expected a pest-free environment...especially at the price we paid.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see ants were a problem during this visit. We have sprayed for pests and placed more traps.Thank you!
GRACE D. Aug 2018
We had a great stay here with our family. The house was perfect and the location could not be better. We hope to stay here again.
Michele S. Jul 2018
This is my fourth trip to Rockaway and my fourth rental. By far, this home was the best. The location is wonderful, the house lovely, deck was nice, and it was perfect for just two people. There were only two negatives, ants and beach access. The house had lots of small ants. I realize ants are a problem, but at this price, I would have appreciated an "ant free" environment, especially in the kitchen. Secondly, this is first place where rocks are the beach access. If you have any physical limitations, you would not be able to access the beach. The rocks were quite difficult for my mother. Other than that, the house was just lovely and I would like to return (with no ants) next summer.
Manager response:
We apologize for the ant nuisance; they are a common problem on the coast, but we have added ant traps to the home to help. We have also added information about the rocks near the beach access. Thank you!
Rebecca B. Jun 2018
We loved everything about this beach house. The view was awesome. There was plenty of comfortable seating for everyone to enjoy the view. We loved the color choice and the decor. The beach access was great! It was quite windy when we were there so my family did some kite flying. Lovely home! I would definitely stay here again.
Smita M. Jun 2018
My family and I all had a wonderful time here. The home is lovely; the entire west wall is windows looking out onto the ocean. Through the backyard, off of hr deck, is direct beach assess. We cooked most of our meals in the efficient kitchen, there were plenty of bathrooms which is a plus with full house. We look forward to our next stay in this lovely and cozy home.
Pam B. May 2018
Wonderful beachfront home remodeled Kitchen and baths. Everything we needed was there except food. Sleeps 6 adults, 2 1/2 baths nice with several people there.
Phillip W. May 2018
The cottage had been recently updated and was well finished.
Clean throughout and everything worked.
Will definitely go again
Sid N. May 2018
It was very relaxing and had a beautiful view
Mary M. Apr 2018
I loved the interior of this house with the Robin's Egg Blue and white painted walls. Being right on the beach, with nothing but dune grass, sand and ocean in front of us was dreamy. The kitchen was well appointed, the beds very comfortable. It was a quick drive either north or south to quaint coastal towns.
Kip C. Apr 2018
Amazing view. All the amenities. Comfortable and cozy.
Sarah V. Mar 2018
I thought the rental was in a prime location and a great value. Look forward to staying again in the future.
Lori L. Mar 2018
Loved everything about this house and the area! Hope to come again and we would stay here. We did not want to leave.
Margaret M. Mar 2018
Wonderful view of the ocean. Clean, beautiful home. Cozy and welcoming. Would stay here again!
Jay R. Feb 2018
This home is wonderful. The view is spectacular from the downstairs. Very clean and updated. Steps from the sand. Super happy with our rental!
Suzanne K. Feb 2018
Amazing location. Literally ocean front with easy Rock steps down to the beach. Super cute decor and modern updated floors, showers, kitchen. Loved it. We had 2 adults with 4 kids. Lots of games and sand toys. Can’t wait to go back.
Pam N. Jan 2018
We loved everything about the house except twin beds could be better.
Jody W. Jan 2018
I love this home. The decor and comfort is amazing and makes me feel right at home and yet pampered too. The layout is great and perfect for enjoying the ocean view every day. I highly recommend it.
Brigitte K. Oct 2017
The house is beautiful - the location amazing. Perfect for a few days to relaxing. From the house or from the deck of the house you can always look to the sea. Great!
LeighAnn M. Sep 2017
You can't get any closer to the beach, and as the photo's show, the view is phenomenal. We appreciated the open kitchen to living arrangement so no conversation was lost if cooking or cleaning up. The couches and chairs were very conducive to just visiting and enjoying the surroundings. It was really nice to have three decent sized bathrooms and the beds were very comfortable in each of the bedrooms. We had a great stay!
Jane C. Sep 2017
Beautiful views. Great walking beaches. Plenty of amenities in house. Mattresses on beds need to be replaced.
Linda T. Sep 2017
You will be blessed if you get to stay at this cottage!
Charming, cozy, perfect!
Thomas T. Sep 2017
What a lovely home in a beautiful beach front location. Charming!
Cassidy S. Sep 2017
Great house, newly updated and loved being right on the beach! You won't be disappointed with the views!
Tabitha G. Aug 2017
We had a wonderful time, the house was comfortable, clean and fun to stay in. Great view and distance from the beach. Kids loved being so close to the beach. The deck was a perfect place for relaxing and watching the waves.
Barbara N. Jul 2017
The Whalewatcher was as described and well stocked. Clean and spacious. We look forward to a return trip!
Sharon S. Jul 2017
We really enjoyed our stay. All of the windows in the front gave us an amazing view of the ocean and the 4th of July fireworks right from the deck.
Steffany E. Jul 2017
Great vacation home.
Tom B. Jun 2017
comfortable, well appointed. We wanted for nothing.
Racheal J. Jun 2017
from the moment we stepped into the house, it was very welcoming, clean, and comfortable. the easy access to the beach was a great addition to this wonderful house. the oven cooked/ baked great, from quiche to cookies. The view was another enjoyable aspect of renting this house. met all of our expectations and more, didn't want to leave.
David And Debbie S. Jun 2017
The house has been nicely remodeled and was very well organized to provide most all necessities. It is a bit smaller than it looks online and didn't have very much work space in the kitchen, but still worked out fine for us. The upstairs was very functional for our son, daughter-in-law and their 4 year old. We all loved the ocean views from the home and the close access to the beach. The rock steps down to the beach could be difficult for some. We loved our walks on the beach, watching the tide come in from the chairs on the deck, and the sunsets in the evening were amazing! A great vacation in a great beach house!
Pei San H. Jun 2017
We spend most of our non-active time just sitting in the living room area watching waves and sunset. This is a quiet place during weekdays and the property is so homey and wonderful. We are looking forward to next visit.
James H. Apr 2017
Our recent stay was our second and I would return to this property anytime. Well done.
Dennis G. Apr 2017
Open the shades, sit in the dining room at the table or in the comfortable couches, watch the surf and listen to some relaxing music! Throw in some fresh seafood meals and a favorite beverage it is a mesmerizing experience.
Nicole O. Apr 2017
We lucked out with some really nice weather, so the semi-private beach was nice. View was amazing - really nice sunsets. We were able to collect shells every day and even saw whales off in the distance. There were a few minor issues with the home that the company said they would address. For the most part, we were happy with our stay.
Vanessa B. Apr 2017
We loved our stay in this well appointed house. Great location, amazing views, perfect place for a restful beach retreat!
Jim R. Mar 2017
Great place
Timothy G. Mar 2017
Spotless. Excellent location right on the beach! Wonderful kitchen utensils. Very nice furnishings. Comfortable beds. Great shower. Would recommend to friends.
Jody W. Feb 2017
This was a beautifully remodeled home and has an excellent view. The home had everything we needed and we enjoyed every minute of our visit. We only recommend a few things to make it more handicap friendly. The staff was readily available and helpful. We will definitely stay there again and have recommended it to family and friends.
Raul G. Feb 2017
Spent 3 nights in this beautiful house at the end of Jan 2017.
Everything was great, even the weather.
The house is beautifully furnished, has nice remodeled bathrooms and kitchen. It has a nice patio and big living-room windows for watching the ocean. Lots of board games, TV and internet for when there's rain outside. The weather was awesome, in the 50s with very little rain and just enough wind to do some kiting :)
My only issue would be that the house doesn't have AC (not many houses on the Oregon Coast have it) we didn't need it off course, but I can imagine in the summer it'd be a nice thing to have.
Otherwise, perfect in any other way, we look forward to coming again soon!
Harry E. Jan 2017
We were extremely pleased with the home. We felt that the king size mattress should be replaced, but the rest of the home was fantastic. It sits right on the beach and has a fantastic view. Everything in the home was clean. We loved it and hope to rent it again in the future.
Brian K. Jan 2017
We were so blessed to have stayed here for the second time. You will not be disappointed if you book the Whalewatcher!!
Jodie H. Dec 2016
If you want to be right on the beach this is the place!!!! Beautiful inside and view amazing!!!
Joan F. Nov 2016
this is a great property - beautiful view and wonderful kitchen
Manisha T. Nov 2016
All six of us were very happy with the rental property. We loved the view of the ocean, the decor, and cleanliness of the home. We enjoyed cooking in the cozy kitchen and watching movies on the t.v. It rained all Saturday, but we managed to walk on the beach and collect some beautiful shells and rocks. I would highly recommend this place to all my friends and family and I plan to bring back my family again!
Paul J. Oct 2016
The home was very clean inside when we arrived. Views out of the downstairs windows were fantastic, who needs TV. There is no fireplace which might be an issue for some folks. Easy access to the beach and you can see Arch Rock to the south weather permitting. Great place would return in a heartbeat.
Lora B. Sep 2016
Great location and the beach was amazing! So many things to do.
Michael G. Aug 2016
Absolutely spectacular ocean front location and property
Jacque B. Jul 2016
This was so beautifully updated and clean. They had everything we needed and then some. Right on the beach with stairs made from rocks leading down to the beach. We could not have asked for a better place to have stayed.

The Browns in Washington state
Brian K. Jul 2016
Just finished five nights in this perfect slice of paradise!! The Whalewatcher has amazing views, easy beach access, and clean, modern furnishings. Already booked a return visit over New Year's holiday!!
Julie R. Jun 2016
Excellent beach house! Steps to the ocean and a 24 hr view. Can't beat it. Also this house was fully stocked with good kitchen supplies and nice appliances. We were super impressed. Everything was really nice and remodeled. The beach is just amazing. We loved our time there!
Steffany E. Jun 2016
We loved this home, we have been renting homes on Rockaway for a few years now, but this was by far our favorite. The updates to the home are perfect, the colors are beachy and soothing. Great location - a short climb down the rocks on we were on the beach. All the little extras (sand toys, kite, games, etc) at the house were great. The weather was perfect and it was not too busy.
Chris J. Jun 2016
This is a quiet spot for a relaxing vacation.
Andrew R. Jun 2016
It does not get any better than that, beautiful
Cindy S. Apr 2016
It had been over a dozen years since we had visited this quaint seaside village! We were pleased to see that it hadn't changed much and hadn't become commercialized! We loved walking for miles along the beach, shopping and of course the fresh fish options!
James H. Apr 2016
Wonderful location and reasonably priced. We hope to return next year.
Donna R. Apr 2016
The house was perfect. We loved every minute of our time there. The furnishings and décor were lovely and it was very relaxing. One word of warning would be that if you or a member of your party have trouble walking or taking stairs, do not expect to just walk down the path to the beach. Rock stairs were fairly difficult to maneuver for some of our party. The beach is great for walking so it is worth the block or so walk to the hotel to use their stairs. All in all - perfect vacation!!!
Denise M. Apr 2016
Lovely home, awesome view, wonderful walking beach - relaxing vacation!
Teresa A. Mar 2016
Spent a wonderful, long weekend at Whalewatcher and enjoyed every aspect of our visit. We've traveled and stayed at many locations along the Oregon coast, but this was our first visit to Rockaway Beach area. It's a very quiet location and small town, which was what we were looking for. Not many restaurants or grocery stores in the area, but we were able to find what we needed in adjacent towns nearby. The remodeled home was very comfortable for our group--2 couples and an infant. The view is spectacular! Hope to return to this location again.
Michele B. Mar 2016
We absolutely loved our stay at the Whalewatcher. I could sit and stare at the ocean for hours. Very quiet and laidback. We took walks on the beach and cooked several meals in the perfectly stocked kitchen.
Jeff C. Mar 2016
Nice property. Great beach. Rockaway is a sleepy town with not much to do. If you want quiet, this is the place.
Lessy P. Mar 2016
I highly recommend this place, it has a gorgeous view and the house is spotless!!
Pamela K. Feb 2016
This was our first experience with VACASA, and we were impressed! They have it down to a science -- everything we needed or wanted was available when we walked in the door: extremely clean; newer furnishings, appliances; upscale linens and bedding and plenty of extra towels; kitchen furnishings include any small appliance we could have imagined and pots and pans that were new. There was a supply of soaps and shampoo.
There are windows on the entire west side of the house, steps away from the beach. Very comfortable house with huge master BR on the main floor; upstairs a private BR and twin beds in the alcove. Individual room thermostats kept it cozy. Two retired couples had a very enjoyable week there. We will be back.
Ginevra L. Feb 2016
This place is gorgeous , well furnished and very comfortable. Really beautiful, right on the beach. Lovely!
Doug M. Jan 2016
Our family had a great time, including our 4 and 7 year olds who went down to the beach in their pajamas to dig up beach hoppers and came back up when it was lunchtime. The renovations are great and the views out over the beach and ocean are unrivaled. The house even had a super set of binoculars hanging on the wall as you walk in to watch the whales.
Clara K. Dec 2015
I rented the Whale Watcher for a family gathering; my daughter, her husband, their 1 year old and my in-laws (in their 80s). All I heard is "wow" when they walked in to the place, what a view. The house itself is also very nice with quality appliances, furnishings, towels and bedding. They really enjoyed their stay and we all enjoyed having the beach all to ourselves this time of year (late December). Rockaway is a great place to go if you want to get away from the crowds.
Joan F. Nov 2015
We have been renting cottages at Rockaway Beach for 25 years and although we have enjoyed ourselves every single time we've been to Rockaway, Whalewatcher was the best rental we've ever had! So pretty and clean, great kitchen amenities, fabulous location and view. We will request this cottage first every time we go!
Laurel M. Sep 2015
This newly remodeled place was a perfect getaway. Right on the beach (the ocean sounds at night were incredible), we never used our car for three days! It was spotless (the remodel has just been completed and Gina did a beautiful job of cleaning)!
Anyone would love this place! We'll be back!
Mary J. Sep 2015
Four adults could not have been happier. Adorable! Very clean! great location and very quiet. We will return as often as possible.
Joan/Maureen W. Aug 2015
great place, great time
Tuire R. Jul 2015
This home is absolutely beautiful! Three good size bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Everything was clean and very tastefully decorated. Plenty of dishes and pots and pans. Also included were a couple of beach chairs in the closet. We will for sure stay here again.
Bob J. Jul 2015
You need to stay at this house, just incredible.
Small walkway thru the grass...20 feet long and you are at the sand.
Loved every part of this house. I called the Vacasa twice, and each time the answered right away, and were very easy to work this.
Small deal is to add the WiFi password on the check in docs that Vacasa sends out. We found it, which is a big deal at all...Just more of an FYI
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your 5 star review. This amazing Rockaway Beach home is perfectly located for a beach vacation. We are so pleased that Vacasa staff was able to assist you in booking and planning your stay. Please come visit again!

I can't say enough good things about this property. It is exceptionally well-kept and very, very clean (even the comforters and rugs). It has beach access via stone steps and gorgeous, spacious sandy beach as far as you can see. We brought two young kids (2 years and 4 years) and we spent most of our time at the beach or on the porch. We gave the kids the upstairs space with two twin beds and they felt so special. We were able to do a little cooking and grilling too. If you want to relax and be right on the ocean, this is the spot. We will definitely be back!! It's worth every penny.

We could not have been happier at this place. Pictures are sometimes deceiving on the internet and you never know what you are really going to get, but you will not be disappointed with this home. It was very clean, the decor was beautiful, and had all the comforts of home. If I could live here I would. It had a nice loft area upstairs with puzzles and games for kids. The views were amazing! The kitchen came with pretty much everything you need to cook with other than spices. I would however, recommend stocking up on food items in town just a short trip north of Rockaway Beach in Manzanita (about a 15 min drive.) The local store in Rockaway was only good for very basic items and there is not much as far as restaurants. We came from FL with our 2 teenage kids and this was the perfect family trip to get away, relax, and spend time together. We had several campfires on the beach at night and made smores, what a treat. The view from the kitchen table and living room was just beautiful. The back deck comes with a place to sit and relax and includes a grill to cookout. The beach is just steps away. The Oregon coast is absolutely amazing to see! We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this beach rental.
