About Janet Murphy

This is a family beach home and true to that title it is a family effort to continue to own it. My two brothers and I grew up in the Mt. Tabor area of Portland and attended Franklin High School. We all still reside in the area and each of us loves the beach. We still refer to it as Twin Rocks, even though it has been incorporated into Rockaway Beach. We visit as often as possible and now our children and their children also use the house as a place to get away.

Janet Murphy purchased this house in 1984

Why Janet Murphy chose Rockaway Beach

When my two brothers and I were children we used to spend our summers visiting my grandparents at their beach cabin in what was then Twin Rocks. We used to play in the woods across the street. One year when we came the trees had all been cut down. Little did I know then that the house that was to be built would one day be a place where my children would create their own beach memories. When our father purchased the house he went out on a limb financially. The first time down after the sale I stood out front with him and he said, 'This is your inheritance. There won't be anything else.' Today, this house means the world to me and to each of our families. Through the years it has become a way to connect with family and friends. It is our sincerest hope that our renters will also be able to create lasting memories for their family.

What makes this house unique

You only need to walk in the front door and look out the window once to realize why we love this house. The view is unequal. It's like a movie set. The house sitting steps away from the beach. Being able to sit on a deck and watch waves pounding the sand and crashing against the two giant rocks just off shore. It is truly an amazing place.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Clean and inviting home. A beautiful spot with views of the ocean and the twin rocks. Plenty of room for our entire family. Just a short stroll to be on the beach. Hope to make this an annual event.

This house has lots of bedrooms and bathrooms which makes it very

handy for many adults....It is right on the beach which is lovely.

The town of Rockaway is charming and so are the people. I do recommend the train ride. The only draw back was a small living room and a small dinner table. A larger space would have been nice.

Great quiet place to enjoy the Oregon Coast

  • 5 of 5

My family met here for a reunion. It was great having a beach front place. We played on the beach and watched the sunset. It was ideal. The owners were very receptive to our needs and went the extra mile to make sure our stay was great.
