About the Property

Sharkalope - On The Beach! Sleeps 18. Hot Tub. Arcade.

Beach, hot tub and retro arcade… need we say more? Our home is a remodeled Oceanfront home originally built in 1925 that sits on a 1/2 acre oceanfront parcel directly in front of the Twin Rocks. We have a large yard and path which connects the house directly to the beach. There are great views of the Twin Rocks from house and the deck, or get closer and hang out on picnic table overlooking the beach. We have a hot tub off the deck and a retro arcade in the basement, with Skeeball, pinball, pop-a-shot and vintage video games.

The house has 3 levels. The main house is on the top 2 levels with 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, full kitchen, TV room and great room (living/dining). The lower level apartment has 2 more bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a kitchenette, plus the arcade. The house sleeps up to 18 (16 on beds and 2 on sofas).

Upstairs, on the top floor, there are 2 large bedrooms each with a king bed. The east room has a view of the mountains and west room has a great view of the ocean and Twin Rocks. The 2 upstairs bedrooms also have queen size beds that can be pulled out from under the main beds to sleep additional people. The top floor also has a full bathroom and a TV room.

The main floor has small vintage kitchen, a bathroom with a clawfoot tub and two smaller bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with twin bunk beds. The main floor also has a great room with a large dining table and a living area where everyone can gather around the wood stove and play games or watch the waves crash on the Twin Rocks.

The lower level apartment has two small bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a full futon, plus a kitchenette with a small dining table. The apartment has a separate outside entrance on the east side of the house, or can be accessed from the main house through an interior door on the lower level arcade room.



Outside the main house front door, facing the ocean and Twin Rocks, is a deck and a hot tub and a private path through our yard leads about 200 feet to the beautiful 7 mile stretch of beach right in front of the Twin Rocks.

The basement has an arcade game room with Skee Ball, vintage pinball machine (pinball is out of order), shuffleboard, air hockey, pop-a-shot two player basketball game, Donkey Kong multicade (with 60 games including Pac Man, Dig Dug and many more) and Area 51 2-person shooting game. All games are set for free play, so no need to bring quarters. Please note that some arcade games may not be operational during your stay, these are older games that sometimes break and we can't always fix them right away.

There is plenty of parking for at least 6 cars.

Rockaway Beach is a small coastal resort town located only about 1.5 hours from Portland. It has a beautiful 7 mile continuous beach anchored by Tillamook Bay to the south and Nehalem Bay to the north. It’s a great location with everything you need within a short drive.

Other Things to Note:

Prices are subject to change and are not guaranteed until booking is confirmed.

Well behaved pets may be allowed with host's permission and a small fee. Please check with us if you plan to bring pets.

3 or 4 nights minimum stay in Summer, 4 nights for Summer holidays, 3 or 4 nights for Winter holidays and 2 nights the rest of the year.

Maximum occupancy for the property is 18 people.

An additional cleaning fee may be required if excessive trash is left in the house or yard. Rockaway Beach does not have curb-side recycling, so guest are required to take recyclables (glass bottles, cans, etc) to the local recycling centers in Rockaway or Tillamook.

We try our best to keep the arcade games working, but they sometimes break. We don't issue refunds for any arcade games that are not working.

Additional details and check-out procedures will be provided by the host in the house manual.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in Portland and love to travel to the coast or the mountains when we can.

Why the Owner Chose Rockaway Beach, OR, USA:
This property is absolutely amazing! On a quarter acre of oceanfront land, it has a direct view of Twin Rocks and Rockaway's 7 mile beach. Our home was built in the 30's and has gone through a few transformations from hotel, to home, to bed and breakfast and back to a home again it has a ton of character. We bought and remodeled the house, leaving the hardwood floors and awesome (but updated) vintage kitchen.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We've got an amazing view of the beach and Twin Rocks, a hot tub, an arcade and a ton of space for fun, food and family.
