Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8); Max 10 nts

YES 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.

About Vik Savara

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

Vik Savara purchased this house in 2007

Why Vik Savara 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.

What makes this house unique

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 )!

Beautiful well maintained house close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We rent a beach house every summer and this year was one of the best. Vik is easy to work with and very customer service oriented. The house is beautiful, roomy and comes with so many extras. The two decks, fishing poles, toys, fire pit, grill, plenty of towels, comfortable beds, movies, games, etc. We had a wonderful family get together. Thanks for letting us and out two furry friends stay!

Close to the beach, clean, good ownership

  • 4 of 5

Townhouse was perfect for what we needed. The house is stocked with everything you need and is clean and well maintained. Plenty of privacy with the split level and has a very homey feel. The owner is very easily reachable and helpful and welcoming to guests. We were sad to leave and will try to book with him again possibly I'm this house or a bigger one if he has any.

Just as it was presented. Everything is there, very well documented.

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay. Entertained visitors from Astoria. Grilled steaks and had a delightful visit. The weather cooperated for several days and the wind was low. Drove up the coast and down the coast. So much to do and the Rockaway /Twin Rocks Beach has much to offer.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

This house accommodated our family of five really well! There was plenty of indoor/outdoor space and all the rooms were stocked with everything we needed. Beach access is just a quick walk down the road. Working with Vik was a good experience as he was helpful, attentive, and responsive to all our questions and communications. We would definitely book another stay here again in the future.

Great location, well stocked with all necessities!!

  • 5 of 5

We feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The kitchen was so well stocked, with crock pot, rice cooker, blender, cheese grater, you name it, they had it! The wagon, beach toys, beach towels we're so handy, as well as a hose outside the door to hose if sand before entering. The beach was so close and convenient and not crowded! We had two bonfires out there which was great!
