About Mike

My wife and I manage the property ourselves and take great pride in the home. It is our goal to be not only the best equipped vacation home you have every rented but also the cleanest.

Mike purchased this house in 2008

Why Mike chose Rockaway Beach

Location, Location, Location......! We are built directly on the beach. Off the back deck and down 4 steps of the private beach access and your standing on the sand. Unlike many homes that use the term 'Oceanfront' simply because there is not another home between them and the ocean regardless of how far away it is (or if you can even see the ocean), our home is truly 'Right On The Sand'

What makes this house unique

In Oregon homes are usually built back from the 100 yards or more as was this home. In 2003 because of damage to a jetty near us, serious erosion started to occur and nearly 100 yards of land was lost bringing the ocean almost to our door. Today the jetty has been repaired, and our home sits directly on a 7 mile long pristine sandy beach with panoramic views of surf and sand. 'You Will Not Find Another Home Closer To The Surf In Oregon'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us use your lovely home. We really enjoyed falling asleep listening to the ocean. The views are unmatched and with no stairs to the beach even my even my 93 year old mother was able to enjoy some quality time on the beach.

Rockaway Beach Oregon: Located 90 miles west of Portland Oregon and was one of

the first vacation hot spots on the Oregon Coast. Founded in 1920, long before the

roads were completed families came by train each summer to enjoy the beach. Today

Rockaway Beach is still a favorite vacation destination because of it's natural beauty and

steam train's only job is to provide tourists with scenic views of forested mountains that

slope into the Ocean and the dramatic rock formations just off shore.~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Town: Downtown Rockaway Beach looks and feels like a classic beach town from

decades gone by. More than a dozen restaurants are mixed in with the antique, gift,

candy, souvenir and other shops line the streets. No traffic, no stop lights, no casinos

and even in peak summer Rockaway never feels crowded. During the winter months the

town's biggest attraction (the ocean) becomes even more spectacular making it the

preferred time of year to visit for people that are into storm watching.~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Beach: Rockaway Beach has seven miles of pristine white-sand beaches that

are open to the public and are never crowed. Visitors come to Rockaway to enjoy a

number of beach activities, including; beach combing, kite flying, boarding, sun bathing,

surf fishing, bird-watching and more. (140 bird species have been identified in the

Rockaway Beach area). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad: The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad (OSCAR.net) the antique

steam engine pulls trains for scenic trips between the towns of Garibaldi and Rockaway during

the summer months. Dinner trains also are available from Garibaldi a few times per year.~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fishing and Whale Watching: The Oregon Coast has seen a boom in recreational fishing in

recent years and numerous charter fishing boats are available. Crabbing from the public dock or

rental boat are both popular as well as fresh water fishing in one of the area's 7 rivers and many

lakes. If fishing is not your thing consider a whale watching charter boat for up-close viewing.

The whale migrations usually happen in late March and late December, and while they can be

viewed from shore, going out on a charter boat will get you even closer to the action.

Perfectly Located!

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to find, comfortable, well equipped.

You can't complain about the view or beach access. Just the whole trip was much needed and a fantastic place.

Beachy keen!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolute perfection for our family of five. The view was fantastic and location can't be beat. With beach steps away from the kitchen table and an endless supply of driftwood for evening campfires, my sons were in heaven. When the temperatures got cool at night, they cozied up with a DVD by the fireplace inside. Mike was so responsive and helpful about everything from what the house was stocked with (everything by the way) to where to grab great local lattes. This was our first trip to the Oregon Coast and certainly won't be our last!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the stay and we were blessed with nice weather too! We stayed during last week of October. Thanks be to God for blessed weather!!! Because a day before our check-in there was a storm and high winds, and we came next day to enjoy 65-70 degrees sunny days and no winds. Kids enjoyed the ocean waters and it was peaceful and relaxing! Love the location and easy access to the beach. The house was clean and the A-structure is beautiful. Will be looking forward to come back next year. Thank you!

Beautiful view and wonderfully maintained property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed October 6th and 7th and had a great time! The home is absolutely right on the sand, and the beach is quiet and peaceful. We were very impressed with all the care the owners took to stock the home with everything we needed. The dishes, glasses and silverware, pots and pans all looked new and matched nicely, the towels were clean and soft. We slept upstairs on a huge, comfortable bed. There were two others bedrooms downstairs that we didn’t use, but they looked as cute as the rest of the house. The light switches all had dimmers on them, the gas fireplace and bathroom fans and heaters all had timers on them. You can tell that the owners have spent time and money making sure everything is nice and up to date. We will definitely go back, and highly recommend this house.

Location. Location. Location.

  • 5 of 5

Ideally situated right on the coast, this house served us perfectly for a family stay for a week this July. Whenever we were "home" --not hiking around the beautiful mountains or shoreline close by-- we kept the deckside doors completely open to the incredible views and breezes off the Pacific. No need to go anywhere else to enjoy the marvelous sunsets, either. Awesome choice for a real ocean getaway!
