Dog-Friendly Oceanfront Home with Private Deck & Patio, Free WiFi, Full Kitchen

Two guests and a small dog will forever remember their stay at this pleasant oceanfront Rockaway Beach vacation rental. The ocean views combined with all the comforts of home (even WiFi!) will leave you yearning for return trips to this cozy little cottage. 'Second Tide' is decorated with the perfect beach home feel. Wood floors combined with hues of ocean blue and crisp white throughout the home are just what you need to complete your dream family or friend beach getaway. The inviting living room welcomes you into this cozy home with its striped sofa, lovely armchairs, flatscreen TV (cable and Netflix streaming included), and decorative wicker coffee table. Spend relaxing evenings snuggled up on the sofa watching movies while listening to the waves crash against the shore in the background.

This is perfect for a small family or a few close friends. After a day building sand castles, rinse off in the walk-in shower in the bathroom before whipping up a delicious home-cooked meal in the kitchen. From the farm sink to the white cabinets and contrasting dark countertops, you'll love everything about creating meals here. And along with major appliances, a microwave, toaster, blender, and coffeemaker are included. Take a seat at the bistro table to eat and play a board game, or head out to the deck and sip your morning coffee while watching the tide roll in. Don't let your dog miss out on this fantastic trip! One of your furry family members are invited to stay, but please keep in mind there is a nightly pet fee, and they must be under 25 pounds.

What's nearby:
Watch the kites flying on the beach from your window, or simply walk the few steps to the beach to watch in person. Take a stroll down the sandy shores before heading into town for a delicious seafood meal. There's something to interest every vacationer nearby. Outdoor enthusiasts will love this great town. Rent surfboards, paddleboards, or kayaks nearby to explore the coast via water. Hiking, mountain biking, and more can be found just 13 miles north at Nehalem Bay State Park. Whale watch and beachcomb in the cooler months. Take a drive to Tillamook to visit the Air Museum and the Cheese Factory to watch how their delicious cheese is made, sample cheese curds, and buy the freshest ice cream cone you'll ever taste. No matter how you spend your time, or who you're with, this oceanfront Northern Oregon Coast vacation rental makes a great home away from home.

We stayed at Second Tide for 5 nights, hoping for some rest and to escape the Arizona heat. The home was perfectly located for us…close enough to other sites, but secluded enough for quiet and relaxation. Being able to sit on the beach reading while waves crashed and pop up to the house if necessary was perfection. The amenities suited our needs perfectly. The only suggestion I have is that the property be equipped with some kind of beach blanket or chairs as those aren’t things out of state travelers will necessarily bring with them. While we hated to leave, we look forward to a return visit in the future.
Karen R. Nov 2021
The cottage was absolutely charming, and well appointed. It was everything the ad indicated, but of course photos can never capture the essence of a place. The beach is right there, the waves are the lullaby, and the ambience is classic coastal Oregon.
Lauren C. Nov 2021
Beautiful view and right on the beach. Well stocked kitchen and plenty of extra towels and blankets.
Be patient with the key to get into the place. It is terrible and takes forever to get it to work.
Marcy A. Oct 2021
Love that it is perfect for one person to get away affordably. Cute, clean, and so close to the beach! It's my favorite place for some time alone.
Jerry Trussell and Craig C. Oct 2021
Cozy cottage is perfect for a getaway. Clean and well decorated with ocean a few steps away.
Carina M. Sep 2021
I enjoyed my stay very much! Clean and cozy! Just a few steps from the beach! You hear and see the ocean from your couch:)
Amazing views of the sunsets! Been here twice and will be back again!
Karen A. Aug 2021
First off the driveway for the 2 rentals beside is right in the front of the rental we were in. So at midnight people were parking right up against where we were sleeping. Also you really could not keep the drapes open in the bedroom because people were walking by often. If you were young no problem getting to or from the beach. I called about this an no one returned a call to me like promised. Also the rug in the front room had numerous old urine stains from previous pets when the day heated up that room it stunk like
urine. The pull out bed was uncomfortable. Also the Internet connection was not stable. Felt like I paid way to much for what we got.
Manager response:
Hello karen, we apologized for the issues you experienced during your stay. The local manager texted you some information about alternative beach access, but also stated that due to erosion these access points are getting harder to get up and down. Our local team is available to assist you with any issues you may have during your stay. We do hope to host you again soon!
Judy H. Aug 2021
Loved getting up in the morning to the sound of the sea. The internet connection was excellent. The house was well-equipped with kitchen utensils, towels and blankets.
Dayna H. Jun 2021
The location is wonderful - great access to beach - bed was very comfy - the kitchen could of had more soap and garbage bags possible cookie sheet - and dust bunny’s were around - living room couch defiantly needs replacing - all n all was nice vacation
Manager response:
Hello Dayna,We have passed your feedback along to our housekeeping staff so they are aware of your concerns. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!
Maiken M. Jun 2021
House is the of the cute, but/and basic beach shack nature, which was perfect for our needs since we wanted to spend time on the beach not in the house... And, the beach is so close that you can fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves crashing - awesome.
Robyn T. May 2021
This house had a great view and access to the ocean! We loved that there were places to eat within walking distance. Only complaint is that the house was not super clean when we arrived. The couch was pretty dusty and musty and the floor wasn't super clean. Besides that it was a great little house!
Manager response:
We apologize for any cleanliness oversights and appreciate you bringing them to our attention. We will bring them up with housekeeping. Thank you, Robyn!
Marcy A. May 2021
Perfect for 1 person to relax and recharge. Close enough to the beach to step out and watch the ocean while you have your coffee, affordable enough to treat yourself to some solitude.
Cindy K. Apr 2021
This cozy cabin is perfect for 1 or 2 people seeking an affordable oceanfront getaway. Steps from the beach, the sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep, this home was just what I needed for a doggie and me vacation.
Kimberly H. Nov 2020
This was an adorable little beach house. Perfect romantic and cozy getaway for the two of us. We loved hearing the stormy surf and taking long walks along the mostly empty beach. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had all the amenities we needed. We will be back!
Erin T. Nov 2020
Perfect cozy beach view getaway.
Marcy H. Oct 2020
The beautiful location and this sweet little home made for a lovely few days for our getaway.
Jerry Trussell and Craig C. Oct 2020
Nicely furnished with a useful kitchen you can cook in. Perfect size for one or two people. A big plus is the ocean view from inside and from the deck...rain or shine! Very comfortable place, can’t wait to return!
Lou F. Sep 2020
Close to beach . but needs better cleaning and some repair on
small items . Works well for 2 people but 4 people I would not
advise to tight of a fit !
Manager response:
We apologize for any cleanliness oversights and wish you had called so we could have addressed it. We hope you otherwise enjoyed the home. Thanks, Lou!
Susan S. Jul 2020
The cottage is about 10 yards from the beach. You can see and hear the waves from the doors and windows. It was very clean and the kitchen is well stocked with pans, dishes, utensils, coffee maker, microwave, and dish towels. Plenty of bathroom towels plus a couple of beach towels. We had an awesome time!!
David M. Jul 2020
Location just about perfect steps from beach. Only things missing (none of them big deals), would have been nice to have a grill, a large crab pot, and an outdoor hose or some way to rinse sand off. Overall excellent spot.
Jerry T. Jun 2020
Perfect getaway
Andrew S. Oct 2019
The house was very nice and well put togeather. They had amenities well beyond what I expected including slices and kitchen utensils. The view was amazing; you could see the waves while you sat I side. Cant wait to go again!
Tanya L C. Sep 2019
Amazing location, beautiful sunsets, everything one needs to revive their soul. Only thing I would change is taking out the two living room chairs and replacing with a sofa like the one in there. Made some great memories with my best friend from Wyoming!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Tanya! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to hosting you again soon.
Kristin B. Sep 2019
Enjoyed being steps from the beach (so did our dog!), and being able to leave the window open to hear the ocean at night. Clean and comfortable. Every appliance, wi-fi and TV worked. All we needed to add was food and beach towels. Hope to be back!
Sarah P. Sep 2019
Loved our stay at this adorable beach house. It’s got everything you could need- kitchen items, extra blankets, lots of towels etc. Very clean, beautifully decorated, lovely views. Steps from the beach and close to many local sites.
Robert C. Aug 2019
Kim P. Jun 2019
It was peaceful and relaxing.
Jeanne W. May 2019
Perfect for a weekend getaway
Sue W. Apr 2019
It was a great getaway. The place was cozy, clean, quiet and close to the beach.
Julie N. Apr 2019
Second Tide was a perfect spot for a stormy weekend at the beach, just the right size for two of us and our dog, and a great location for both watching the storms roll in and for getting out on the beach for a walk between squalls.
Sally B. Nov 2018
We had 4 lovely days in this perfect little cottage. Just the right size for the two of us. Cozy, simple sweet decor and best of all the ocean!!! right out the front door. Loved it!!
Etha C. Oct 2018
The location is great, right by the beach with a view from the small deck. Super clean and cute. The only reason for the low rating is the bed. It’s just not comfy and sags to the middle. We both have backaches.
Jan C. Oct 2018
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The kitchen is well stocked, could use another fry pan or two. Loved hearing the ocean from inside, the deck provides a nice play to enjoy the sunset or read a book.
Daniella B. Oct 2018
This home was exactly what I needed for a weekend getaway! The home is adorable and location could not be any better, right on the beach!
Andrew J. Oct 2018
The place is as described and literally 30 seconds from the beach. You can see the ocean from the house but it's a much better view to walk a few yards to the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with basics (we made most of our meals at home and felt like we had everything we needed).
Terese R. Oct 2018
Decor. Tasteful.
Marlene R. Aug 2018
Location was perfect, quiet yet 5 minutes from the hub!
Kelley R. Aug 2018
This was the perfect place for the two of us and our dog. Super clean, beach view, Comfy bed and a well stocked Kitchen. We will
Definitely be coming back!
Jim P. Aug 2018
We loved how close it was to the beach and having the privacy of our own little cottage.
Amanda S. Aug 2018
We loved this little getaway. It was decorated so sweetly and in the perfect spot, just steps from the beach. The only thing I was bummed about was that the company did not offer a portable crib or pack and play for flying travelers - so if you have a baby you'll have to rent one. Otherwise it was the perfect stay. Thanks so much!
lorrie S. Aug 2018
Loved Loved Loved this cozy little cottage by the ocean!!! Perfect for two people!!!
Amy B. Jul 2018
Clean & kitchen was well stocked
Gary O. Jul 2018
The waves were crashing on the shores at night , very Calming place to spend a few days . We wish we could have stayed longer 😎😎
Linda P. Jul 2018
House is artfully decorated, has about all one needs for cooking meals, although I did not try the grill as it is used by a couple of the neighboring cottages also. The description advertised a blender that was not there; after getting through the 800 number to a local Vacasa representative, one was purchased and delivered to us immediately. The rep was very responsive to our needs. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was roomy with a great shower. Beach is about out the front door and one can walk for miles. Dining in Rockaway beach is a bit challenging as the offerings are few. But we did day trips to Seaside and the gorgeous Cannon Beach area. We did have a few teeny ants but again the rep responded quickly.
Melissa M. Jul 2018
This cottage is just a stones throw to the beach. Nicely decorated, comfortable, and a well equipped kitchen. We will be back!
John E. Jun 2018
Perfect size. Ocean Front. Great trick kite flying. Quiet & secluded feel. Definitely looking to make this a frequent ‘pinned’ getaway home in- and off-season for me!
Vicki C. Jun 2018
I loved this little was clean and neat and perfect for being close to the ocean. I plan to stay here again.
jackson o. May 2018
Small, but very close to the beach, just what the family needed for a relaxing weekend. 10/10 would totally use again.
Qing Z. Apr 2018
See and hear the ocean.
Fully equipped kitchen.
Clean and no smell.
Allan B. Apr 2018
This house is in a great location, clean. The only issue is that it doesn't have washer, drier and dishwasher. So if you're gonna be planning to stay more than 3 days, you will have problems.
Michael B. Mar 2018
Could have put a packet of coffee in the nice gift bag. Had to go looking for a store at 6am to get some. Ants woke up during our stay but no big deal We'll come again and be more prepared.
Sharon O. Aug 2017
we loved our 2 wks here. A real vacation - quiet, cool - escaping the heat of the city. Couldn't have timed it better
David K. Jul 2017
It was a great place for our 4 person family! We had a phenomenal time.
Josh S. Apr 2017
Very nice stay!
Jeri J. Apr 2017
This cottage was a great little find. Close to the beach. Warm and inviting.
Mary L. Mar 2017
We loved everything about this rental -- great location right on the beach, wonderful view, very clean home, well-stocked kitchen, comfy bed. And gave us a late check-out option which was very helpful.
Carole E. Mar 2017
The house is cute and the decor nicely coordinated. It was very quiet except for the garbage truck Monday morning. If the other two cottages were rented it would be less serene. The beach is long and level with easy access. It isn't a real interesting beach as far as dramatic scenery. We had a good meal at the Sand Dollar, but forgot to ask for the discount. Big people or those accustomed to a king bed may find the bed a bit snug. A very nice property.
Megan H. Mar 2017
Fantastic, a few places that needed to be cleaned (ceiling fan, bathroom floor) but overall it was awesome!
Rikki M. Feb 2017
My fiance and I just spent an extended weekend at this rental in Rockaway Beach and LOVED IT! It was a perfect size for just the two of us and the location is wonderful.
Living Room: The couch was surprisingly comfortable to sit on considering it's a hide-a-bed. There were extra blankets in the coffee table which came in handy as it was a bit chilly in the evenings. The decor is beachy without being overdone (loved it). Everything is very "ikea" but it works and was extremely comfortable. note: Netflix is available but you have to have your own account to access
Kitchen: We did some cooking over the weekend and did not come across anything that we needed that wasn't there which was really great! There were some spices available which was nice as we forgot to bring those (we even left some're welcome ha ha).
Bathroom: The towels were very soft and there were quite a few of them which is always a good thing. The shower was fairly roomy and a nice flow of water from the showerhead.
Bedroom: The bed and pillows were very comfortable. There were extra blankets in the wardrobe which was nice as we kept the windows open to hear the surf.
Location: FANTASTIC - it's about 100 feet to the beach and all weekend we never saw more than 5 people at any time.

Overall Impression: we loved every moment we were there and would love to come back and stay here <3 thank you!!
Carly N. Feb 2017
The place was perfect for 3 gals. Nice a cozy right by the beach. We had a great time.
Brett F. Jan 2017
The house has great views of the ocean. It is in a very quiet spot and was perfect for a weekend away at the coast.
Safari N. Dec 2016
I have often stayed on the coast weekend after weekend for the last 2 years and this by far my favorite location! I normally stay in Netarts. however this place was just assecluded and just a little more fun! I highly recommend Vacasa to book your vacation rental!
DANA G. Nov 2016
We had a wonderful time even when it rained.
James B. Nov 2016
Perfect location clean and very close to beach
. Nov 2016
Wonderful stay.
Mike B. Nov 2016
Very comfortable and close to the beach. Lovely property for 2 people.
David R. Oct 2016
We had an amazing time and this cute little house. :) So close to the beach!
Diane S. Oct 2016
Loved the coziness and ocean views. Short walk to the beach. Exciting to be so close during the storms and tornado warnings - the waves were spectacular!
Crystal Y. Oct 2016
Kind people, quiet beaches, beautiful views! Fun Vintage shops too! What cozy accommodations, clean and perfect for 2-3 people right on the beach!
Cathy M. Sep 2016
Great stay..I just would have liked a washer dryer..but place was very cute
Maci O. Sep 2016
It was a nice place. I am not sure I would spend as much as I did for that location again but overall it was decent
DeAnna L. Aug 2016
We had a wonderful weekend! The house was just perfect---comfortable beds, cute decor, super clean, right on the ocean. We'll definitely go back!
Melinda P. Aug 2016
It's a wonderful place to stay.
Mori S. Aug 2016
Fantastic location! View of the ocean is a little obstructed by shrubs but it is very close to the beach so you don't have to walk far for front row seats. The pull out couch was suprisingly comfortable but better for kids or shorter people. Biggest complaint was no outdoor faucet to rinse sand off so you weren't tracking it inside but overall cute little house in a great spot.
Jennifer N. Aug 2016
We loved the town, house location, and beach access!! We will be back to visit!! Thank you
Cierra C. Jul 2016
This cottage was the perfect getaway for my fiance and I. It is right on the beach and the beach can be seen from all windows. The cottage contained all the necessary kitchen items that made our stay in easy and comfortable. Rockaway is a cute lil town with a couple places for eating out, coffee shops and some trinket shops. There is not much of a grocery store but there is one in Tillamook which is a 20min drive south. The beach is very private with not a lot of people, which made for a nice intimate getaway.
Ellen A. Jul 2016
Lovely little cottage - perfect size for a couple or perhaps couple with kids (on sleep away bed). Beach is directly outside window. Cute neighborhood of houses. Easy drive to Rockaway Beach town, Manzanita, and Cannon Beach. Would love to come back!
Tracy H. Jul 2016
Access to the beach and town was perfect. Cute, quaint little cottage with all of the amenities, all you need is your beach towel and water socks.
Kristin J. Jul 2016
The location is great, but this place is small. My husband, baby and me were cramped. I would say this place is really fo a couple and a baby at most. It was a nice 70 outside and felt 90 even with the windows open. If you want a place e to just sleep at night this is great, but for us we have a kid who naps a lot so it was very brigjet and warm.
Colman B. Jul 2016
Great location. The terrace is great. Was nice to see its exactly as the photos online show.
Peter R. Jun 2016
My wife and I had a great time together we stayed 6 nights, the cottage was prefect for our needs and desires. the price was right, even the weather was sunny..for many hours.
Jessy E. May 2016
Marlene M. May 2016
Such a cute place with easy beach access out the door. Thanks to the owners for sharing this gem and letting our mini Doxie join us. Thanks to Vacasa for the late checkout for such a great price. We will be back!
Marilyn L. Apr 2016
Loved the area, super close to the beach. You can hear the waves at the cabin.
Christina A. Apr 2016
The cottage was the perfect size for the 2 of us and our dog. A very short walk to a fairly quiet amazing beach. The only downside was the very close proximity to the other cottages and no washer and dryer.
Kristi K. Apr 2016
The bungalow is very small, but perfect if you don't plan on spending too much time in it. It is very close to the beach.
Vanessa B. Mar 2016
Really enjoyed our stay, great location!
Jan G. Mar 2016
We enjoyed our stay. The cottage is well appointed and has a well stocked kitchen. It would be a bit crowded for 4 adults.
Adama L. Mar 2016
Really cute and comfortable cottage, it had exactly what I wanted: a view of the ocean and easy (and incredibly close) access to the beach. There are other houses all around but only a grassy plot and a sort of mini-sand dune covered in grass between this cottage and the ocean. With only one bedroom it's probably most comfortable for two people, but I believe four people could have a great time as long as they are well acquainted and comfortable with each other. I only hope I can come back in the summer.
Julia H. Mar 2016
Lovely, cozy cottage - right on the beach. Dog friendly, super clean and bright! Perect for a couple or a family with a small child.
Marcus B. Feb 2016
Very happy with the stay my wife and I had. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and unwind. Great Internet and Cable access, but no DVD player, which wasn't an issue at all for us. We had a great time!
Lisa M. Feb 2016
Great place for a couple. It would be very tight. With more than 2 adults. Nicely decorated and clean. Right on the beach with great ocean views.
Matthew R. Feb 2016
The house was cozy, and right on the beach. We had a great time relaxing and watching the waves. The only downside I found was the bed, it felt like laying on a pile of rocks.
Christopher G. Feb 2016
This is a nice little beach cottage. It was small but perfect for the two of us and our two small pups. Cozy! Location is fantastic. Right on the beach! The place was clean and came with cooking basics. Even and grinder and french press for us coffee lovers. Nice location central to Cannon Beach/ Seaside and Tillamook or Lincoln City. Great deal for the price. Would come back again.
Christina H. Feb 2016
Pros: 100 ft to beach, very clean equipt with more than you need, cute strange town (not too main stream, but close to many other coastal towns) , clean convenience store across the street for odds and ends, netflix and cable for movies....

Cons: Not totally unobstructed view of ocean (bushes in the way), not too private feeling, if you have the curtains open, the neighbors from the vacasa next door will be walking by to access the beach and their car, they can see right in
Marci A. Jan 2016
This was the perfect place for a get-away weekend. It is right by the ocean and adorable inside! The bed was comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook there, and I appreciated having the wifi and Netflix option for the rainier parts of our stay. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on our next trip to Rockaway!
Jan O. Jan 2016
This cabin has great ocean views and is just a lot away from the beach. Great place for a couple but would be kinda tight with four adults. The inside was nice and clean but way too white for my taste. White rug, white end tables, white walls etc. Since I took my dogs and it was raining , I was especially concerned about the whiteness of everything. If you love Ikea, you will love this place.
Christian S. Dec 2015
The pictures are a true painting of how the place looks! It was very CLEAN, no smell(which is hard for a beach house), steps away from the beach and ocean. The interior was stocked with everything you need! We brought groceries and ate in for 48hours straight. Perfect for a couple. It be pretty snuggly with more than 2 adults. But it was PERFECT for a couple getaway. I'd come back over and over again:) One suggestion is to cut the hedge so you can see the whole ocean view and then move the couch so you can sit and watch the ocean. But that's it :)
