Property description

We completed building our brand new 2 level vacation house in Twin Rocks a few years ago. Twin Rocks is just South of Rockaway Beach (about 15 miles north of Tillamook) - just 90 scenic minutes from Portland.

Our house is a 2 Bedroom 2 Bath very comfortably furnished house with a full kitchen. There is a 2 level large patio (one covered) with a lovely view of the mountains and has a Weber Charcoal and a Weber Gas BBQ and patio furniture.

Our comfortable house is less than a one minute walk to the beach. - one road away from the beach front- just steps away from the pristine quiet clean 7.5 mile Twin Rocks beach.

It is a perfect get away, a comfortable retreat, for a family or a romantic getaway in a quiet serene atmosphere. You will enjoy the secluded, peaceful & beautiful Twin Rocks Beach and the spectacular sunsets. Near Shopping, dining & beach & yet still secluded.

This is our vacation house, our family's pride – not a professional vacation rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Retired Engineering/Marketing Executive living with wife in Portland. Both kids (they will always be kids!) with families in other states.

Why the Owner Chose Rockaway Beach:
We fell in love with the serenity of the Twin Rocks beach - it truly is a hidden gem - away from the 'tourist' beaches - but yet very accessible to nearby townships and a large city (Tillamook). The beach is clean and with few very friendly people - the Twin Rocks Island with its spectacular sunsets is just in front. Feed the birds - build castles, take a relaxing walk, Excellent Kite flying in gentle wind and for the young at heart - marshmallows over bonfires on the beach at night.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every now and then we just have to take a break from our routine - and we always return from the beach house so very refreshed. Since our house is just a minutes walk to the beach - it is very convenient to make several trips during the day - a brisk morning walk with the birds, Coming back for brunch then a walk after tea - returning after Sunset. In summer there is the Coastal Railway which goes from Rockaway Beach to Gharibaldi & Back - the kids (and adults)just enjoy the scenery from open air cabooses - with the tracks at the edge of the sea - the scenery is beautiful and the kids love waiving to pedestrians walking on the roads. There are tide pools to wonder at , Deep Sea Fishing ,Golf, Air Museum in the famous Gas Dirigibles Hanger; Tillamook Cheese Factory Tours; Wine Tasting - so much so close. Our house is just minutes from downtown Rockaway Beach with its restaurants, Library, Ice Cream Parlors and fantastic smoked fish; New Orleans Ribs and British Fish/Chips ( no chains )!
