About the property

Less than 100 steps to sand! 2 bedrooms + sleeping loft (sleeps 6), 1 bath.


Ask about Jan/Feb Winter Special - 3 nights for price of 2! 2017 = $130 off season, $175 high season plus local tax & cleaning.

Pacific Escape is an ideal family rental. Just steps to the beach and 1 block to town - an easy trip with toddlers! Location is north end of Rockaway Beach on the 'beach side' of HWY 101.

Two bedrooms and a sleep loft ensure comfortable beds for six guests. Main floor bedroom has a queen bed, upstairs bedroom features a king and the loft houses a full. Pack-N-Play cribs provided for baby / toddler guests in each bedroom.

Amenities include:

Fireplace, Wi-fi, HDTV TV with basic cable plus DVD player & movie collection, very well appointed kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and plenty of pots/pans/dishes/utensils. Coffee lovers will be pleased to see drip coffe maker, Bodum press pot and Krups espresso machine. Washer /dryer in utility room. We even provide rain gear! NO SMOKING OR PETS.

“It’s so cute!” is the initial response most first time visitors have to this beach house. Pacific Escape is just ¼ block from easy beach access, and two blocks from the center of Rockaway Beach.

House has family friendly extras: cribs, high chair, Kelty brand baby carrier, jogging stroller (3 wheel), beach toys, bikes (youth and adult), boogie boards, kid and adult wet suits, beach towels, games, books & movies. Need a yoga mat? How about Golf Clubs? Got 'em! Park in the dry, secure garage or use the extra space for gear.

We rented coast properties for years before buying. It stinks to discover worn bedding, rough towels, and insufficient cookware. This place is stocked! Plenty of linens, ample cookware, lots of dishes (even champagne flutes) and enough silverware for a dinner party.

Good weather at the Oregon Coast can’t be beat, but even in sketchy conditions you are close enough to catch sun breaks on the beach. If it’s best to stay in, snuggle up by the fire, tackle a puzzle, or enjoy movies, books, toys & games (all provided). Rain gear is on hand for more intrepid folks who enjoy a stormy beach walk - and want to look cool in yellow slickers and 'souwester' hats!

If you need to get some work done (but not too much, please!), wifi is there for you.

Rockaway Beach is a great little town. Explore on foot or bike, hop on the train to Garibaldi or venture north to watch the surfers at Short Sands (Oswald State Park). The Tillamook Ice Cream Factory is a short drive south as is the Tillamook Air Museum.

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 Northern Coast

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!


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was absolutely perfect for our little beach getaway. It was very helpful to have access to baby stuff; a high chair, pack-n-play, toys, etc. It was so nice to not have to pack all that stuff! We had a super yummy breakfast at the Offshore Grill which was located right across the street. Many places had weird off season hours (were only open on weekends) so we did have to head over to neighboring towns for food at times, but that didn't bother us. Super cute, nice and clean, and had everything we needed to enjoy the beach.

Weekend escape

  • 4 of 5

Nice cottage-comfy and well equipped. Great location-Rockaway is a fun place-Upper Crust Pizza has delicious food and super nice service. Check out the fun stuff at Little White Church Antiques. And take a drive up to Nehalem for breakfast at Wanda's--it's worth the wait.

A perfect beach stay for our family of five!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 weeks at this beach cottage in total bliss. When we arrived we felt like we were arriving at a friend's home, rather than a rental. It was cozy, comfortable, had everything we needed and more. There were little touches like marine stuffed animals for our kids to play with, Sunset magazines for me to read, wetsuits for the kids, a perfect little front porch that we relaxed on and the kids turned into their sea shell and sand dollar collection spot.

It's close to the beach, so close that we took our extended family on "FaceTime" walks from the house to the beach for the sunset (and they could see how close we were to the waves - we really could hear them from the open windows at night!). We also used this perfect place for our home base as we explored the coast - from whale watching down in Depoe Bay, to hiking at Cape Lookout, Cape Falcon, Cape Meares. We enjoyed the Rockaway Kite Festival. We went north to Seaside and Cannon Beach, went tidepooling at the Bayview Jetty, rode the train to Garibaldi. Our favorite picnic and beach spot (besides walking out the door to the beach a few steps away) - Hug Point! You can go exploring a lot while at this house, or not at all, and all of it is beach life perfection.

When at the cottage on rainy days, we had fun playing board games, reading in the nook, cooking in an easy-to-cook-in and well stocked kitchen. Simple living, and SO MUCH FUN. We left here refreshed and are definitely working on finding a time to return again soon we hope! And I'd second another review I saw that said the owner was a pleasure to work with. No complaints of any kind here! Thanks so much!

Very happy renter!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I did a 7 day/6 night stay in this cute cottage and loved it! My kids, "2 1/2 and 3 1/2" had the best time playing in the loft and on the stairs when not on the beach. The beach access was very close and the walk took very little time. The washer and dryer were a fantastic treat since we stayed a week and the beach chairs were super comfortable. Honestly, they had everything you might need to get started and the owner was beyond a pleasure to work with! She was so friendly, polite and accommodating! This cottage is perfectly set in it's location and so reasonably priced. We paid barely more then we did compared to our last year 3 night stay in a condo only a block away from this spot. The beach access was so much better at the cottage as well. I'd definitely recommend this cozy cottage and for those who haven't stayed in Rockaway, you are missing out on the most beautiful, friendly and fun beach town on the Oregon Coast! We enjoyed the train running from Rockaway to Garibaldi and back, a trip to Tillamook just up the coast, Astoria, Cannon beach, the Jetty and even the Portland Zoo. It's such a great location and so many fun places to visit near by!

Great getaway with homey feel

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this cozy house, spending Thanksgiving once again with friends in the area. Our three children were so excited to go again, as they love the nook bed area and all the kid-friendly toys and movies. We parents love how well stocked the kitchen is, the warmth of the fireplace for chilly mornings/evenings, and the front porch for sunny afternoon drinks. The walk to the beach is a quick one--just a run out the door to see that perfect sunset or quick walk to make beach camp with the wagon full of toys conveniently left in the garage. The town was hopping in it's quietly relaxed way. We enjoyed the tree lighting with Santa, fresh smoked salmon, and local businesses were very open and welcoming for winter. We ended our trip with a visit to nearby Barview Jetty and saw seals swimming and whales spouting. I trip we'll not soon forget!

What a wonderful discovery!

  • 5 of 5

This little house is bigger than it looks, with nooks and crannies for everything you could think of, and VERY well stocked! Loved the little notes everywhere, the princess-nook bed, plenty of blankets, the nice fireplace! The only thing that wasn't 100% was the wireless, which didn't want to handle our stuff, but that might have been because there was the tail end of a hurricane going on outside. :D
