About Sara Bowersox

We are a beach-loving family! We bought the house to enjoy together, but busy school-age children make it hard for us to be there as often as we like. This is true 'Mom & Pop Operation'...with owners dedicated to making sure your family enjoys the beach as much as we do. A full house is a happy one, and we offer ours to you in that spirit. Enjoy!!!

Why Sara Bowersox chose Rockaway Beach

Rockaway Beach is a great little town! We like the family friendly , small town atmosphere and the fact that we can walk to everything we need. You also can't beat this stretch of beach for a good long, sandy walk.

Pacific Escape is a premium vacation rental! It is clean, well kept and has tons of little extras. It is not huge and fancy (or expensive), but cosy, charming and well supported by caring owners and diligent housekeeping.

What makes this house unique

Love to spend time away from home with your family but hate spending hours packing the car? Our slogan is 'It's all here!'. Two cribs, high chair, stoller, Kelty baby carrier, bikes, boards, wet suits, kites, beach blankets / towels, sand toys, sand chairs, sun-brella, rain gear - even golf clubs and a yoga mat. You don't have to pack it because we've got it for you!

Just what a beach house should be

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out time at this house. Lots of accommodation for littles: a huge herd of marine themed stuffed animals, toy trucks and games galore, a highchair, no fewer than 3 portable cribs. Also the house layout is living/dining/kitchen as one space so it's easy to keep track of kids and also just good for socializing in general. We liked the many windows so it feels light and sociable to the street. You can park one car right out front so easy load/unload. The pictures don't show 2 additional real beds. There's a cute yellow bedroom on the ground floor, close to the bathroom, which would be good for the older set and there's an awesome loft space accessible by a short ladder that is a dream for kids from maybe 4 on up. It would be fine for agile adults too. I think it was a full sized bed and it has the all important feature of 2 reading lamps on a shelf behind the bed. But it's more or less open to main bedroom so not super private. All that said, i think the common spaces in the house would be a bit tight with 6 adults. It was perfect for our little family of 3. The walk to the beach hardly qualifies as a walk so you can haul everything easily. Miles of sandy beach right there. Host was very concerned that we had a good time and checked in on us to make sure. Highly recommend. Will be back. Also, we went crabbing at Kelly's marina near by and that was big fun. Also hiked out the short (10 minute) trail to the gorgeous beach at Oswald West SP. There are tide pools there.

Great cozy house

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and well stocked. Everything we though we might need was already there. Notes at house to help clarify any questions or locations of items. A very, very short walk to the beach. Kids had a great time at this house and beach location. Beds slept well. Very enjoyable, relaxing place to stay.

Perfect location, very clean and close to the beach and the cute shops!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in Rockaway not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised by the cute, quaint beachside town and this sweet little cabin perfectly located between that and the beach! The cabin although old is kept up very well and oozes beachside charm. Like any older house there were a few things to contend with like one burner on the stove top didn't work and the gate could use a little tlc, however none of this took away from the ease and comfort of this little place. My hubby and I took our 2 young children and couldn't get over how perfectly suited this place was for us. You can tell the owners take pride in their home and hospitality! There were personal touches everywhere, like notes on where things were and suggestions where to eat. There were awesome toys for the kids to play with as well as a 'secret' bedroom off the master that the kids could have stayed in forever. Kind of a little fort with a bed, it was great! We rode our bikes to a local lake, we cooked dinner over a fire on the beach, we played for hours finding sea life and treasures. We will without a doubt return! All in all very charming and clean and assessable to everything!

Owner's Response: A few fix it comments: we sanded corrosion off the stove top burner and reseated it. It works, but is fussy. The porch gate is a constant struggle (takes a lot of abuse)! It's working better after resealing the porch railing (oil based sealant acts as lubricant). The gate is a constant on our "Handyman List".

Classic Beach stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of three enjoyed this location for a vacation to Rockaway Beach. The cottage isn't fancy, but it clean, cozy and well-appointed. My son loved climbing the ladder to get into his own bed loft and we slept comfortably too. Lots of extras for families with kids so you won't need to haul so much stuff! This cottage has a great location, very close to the beach - with chairs and toys available too. Walking distance to the shops and food. We had a very relaxing time.

Clean, comfy & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our say at this beach house. This was definitely the cleanest rental we have experienced. The kitchen has newer appliances with plenty of pots, pans, utensils, and dishes. The wifi works great. The bedrooms are bright & cheery. If you have kids they will love the loft. We were able to get a nice cross breeze going at night, with the help of a fan. The bathroom is actually a little bigger than I expected and well lit. There is a breezeway on the backside of the house which is a great place to leave shoes and jackets from being out all day. The house is one block from the beach, close enough to hear the waves and see the water from the dining table. The house is just a couple of blocks from the Main Street which has several bakeries / restaurants/ ice cream & gift shops. It's easy to walk everywhere and Rockaway is really pretty quiet even during the busy summer. It's also home of the coastal steam train. We will plan to stay here again if back in the area. The owner was very responsive to the few questions we had and genuinely wanted our time there to be great, and it was.
