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 Northern Coast

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.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't know that the house was split in two but it worked out so good The grandparents were on one half while children and the rest on the other half. We walked into a cute little basket filled with treats for the kids and a bottle of wine for us adults. The house was well stocked with kids toys and little cots for them to sleep on. Very cute and clean and the walk to the beach is easy for the older people to get through. We plan on making this house our new family tradition!

The perfect house at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

There are not many views of the beach that beat this one and I could not imagine a more comfortable deck to take it all in from. I have rented this property twice in the past two years and plan to make it an annual stay for us. This house, using both sides, fit 7 firefighters very comfortably! The owners are extremely easy to work with and want you to enjoy your visit to their little piece of heaven on the Oregon Coast. (that apparently included a couple of local beers in our welcome basket!) Thanks Jan! The past two years they have made improvements to the house, always trying to make it just a little nicer. I would recommend this property to any one I know. See ya again soon!

Jan was great to work with and the house had everything we needed. Mere steps to the beach makes this a winner. We hope to visit again!

Memories made at Daybreak!

  • 5 of 5

Daybreak was the perfect place for our entire family, three married children and grandchildren! We loved the location being close to Tillamook and also Cannon Beach. The house was a great fit with all the basic necessities.

The beach at Twin Rocks was beautiful with no crowds. The kids spent hours playing in the sand.

We loved spending time on the nice deck, playing games and eating, As stated in another review the neighbor doesn't seem to recognize happy sounds and glared at us a few times.

We would highly recommend Daybreak and would do it again in a heart beat!
