Rockaway Beach townhome description

Check out our video for more pictures!

Seven miles of unspoiled golden sand lapped by the mighty Pacific Ocean is your backyard when you stay at the luxurious Hakuna Matata oceanfront condo in the heart of Rockaway Beach. A birds-eye view of Twin Rocks, the sound of crashing waves, and the intoxicating smell of salt air through large glass doors complement designer furnishings and exquisite details throughout, ensuring that your vacation is nothing short of magical.

Nearly every inch of this 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath condo is situated to capture breathtaking sunsets and dramatic winter storms. The top floor features a brand-new gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, an art-inspired dining table, a comfy wraparound reclining leather couch, a warming gas log fireplace, and ocean-facing balcony.

The middle floor encompasses a spacious master suite with a luxurious king pillow-top mattress, a jetted tub, and private balcony for quiet contemplation. The guest bedroom, also located on this level, features a queen bed with adjoining full bathroom. Both beds are wrapped in sumptuous linens and luxury comforters for a refreshing night’s sleep. In addition, there is a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the ground floor bonus room, so the condo comfortably sleeps six.
Two large HD televisions, high-speed Internet, state-of-the-art electronics, home-integrated surround sound, and gaming equipment including a Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 are sure to keep you entertained when you’re not out exploring nearby world-class attractions. These include the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Three Graces tide pools, Cape Meares Lighthouse, Short Sands surfing paradise, and Cannon Beach’s famed Haystack Rock. If you are in the mood for a coffee, pizza, or burger, a short stroll puts you in the heart of Rockaway, a beachside town reminiscent of days gone by.
Every detail about this premier property exudes the owner’s discriminating taste, attention to detail, and graceful hospitality. Whether it’s a family vacation or a romantic getaway, you are sure to have the experience of your dreams at Hakuna Matata.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              Why the Owner Chose Rockaway Beach:
              We fell in love with this unit the moment we looked out and saw nothing but ocean. It has always been our family’s dream to own a beachfront vacation home and this dream came true for us in late summer of 2010. We are a family of five with busy active lives and wanted to find a peaceful vacation spot that would help all of us to unwind while relaxing in luxury. Hakuna Matata is that place, our worry free haven while being close to the splendid beauty of the Pacific Ocean. We chose Rockaway Beach because of its marvelous stretch of beach. Walking along the seven mile stretch is always an adventure for our kids. From kite flying to beachcombing, you never know what you might find…shells, star fish, or even a shipwreck. Be sure to try crabbing at the local Jetty, it is always a fun excursion which might provide you with some dinner options. We open our home to you in hopes that you might have the opportunity to experience a bit of the Haukuna Matata spirit. Enjoy!
