About the property

2 Bedrooms + Bunk Room, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-10 (Read about Bunk Room)

If an awesome ocean view and being CLOSE to the beach is important, to you, you will love our 3-Story Town house with 2 ocean view decks to sit and relax on or walk to the beach less than 200 feet away.

Our Town house is the North end unit of a 3 unit townhouse structure and ours has the best beach views of all 3 Town house's and the only one with a side yard.

The grass side yard has a fire pit exclusively for our guests with fixed benches and we enjoy it a lot for evening camp fires with our favorite beverages, or to roast hot dogs or smores and relax.

There's a small creek right next to our side yard that goes underneath the highway and flows right onto the beach. In the Winter, when the surf is high, the ocean actually rushes under the road at times and up the creek right next to us. It often brings logs up the creek and I've harvested a few for fire wood at times. It's vey cool!!!

After a day of playing at the beach, kick back in this well furnished open floor plan and visit with friends and family or simply relax and read a book from either deck with a Beach/Ocean view or enjoy a movie on one of the 3 flat screen TV's or build a fire in our fire pit located on the side yard.

Within a sort distance there are numerous stores and gift shops.

There are several restaurants in Rockaway and many more within a 15 minute drive or use our charcoal BBQ on the main floor deck while viewing the ocean.

In our opinion, there is nothing better than barbequing on the deck with a glass of wine looking at the beach and ocean less than 200 feet away.

About Dave Riggins

We were both raised on the Oregon coast and migrated to Portland 30+ years ago and always dreamed of having a beach house but never expected to have one this nice with this kind of view. We truly love it.

Dave Riggins purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Dave Riggins chose Northern Coast

We wanted a beach house that was within 2 hours of Portland where we live and it is this is almost exactly 100 miles and 2 hours from us. A builder friend of mine built it these units and kept the best one for himself. He offered it to us to use several years ago to use and fell in love with it and told him if he ever decides to sell, call us. 2 years later, it was ours.

What makes this townhome unique

Best Ocean and Beach views.

Side Yard with fire pit and seating.

Useable garage.

Creek that flows directly past the side yard right onto the beach.

Hoses front and rear to wash off sand.

Family retreat

  • 5 of 5

It is clean and the decor just amazing. The down stair bedroom perfect for the teens while my husband and I have quite third floor.

Hang some curtains in master bathroom is the only suggestion we have for this rental house. Otherwise, we give it a five star vacation home.

Great Family Town Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family to stay. The bunk room work well for my daughter and her family plenty of room for a port-a-crib. The place does have two sets of stairs so we should have brought a baby monitor. The main floor living area was very nice and comfortable. Loved the master suite large glass shower made it feel like a nice resort. The other guest room upstairs was nice too. Parking was a little tight as we had two large SUV's but we managed. If you have problems doing stairs then I would not recommend it to you. We enjoyed our time here.

Rockaway Beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was probably are best vacation and we owe it to a wonderful place to stay that was just a short walk to the beach.

The house was amazing and had all the comforts of home.

The beach is super close, and it was especially nice to have a beach camp fire. We roasted hot dogs and smores twice on the beach, a great experience that the kids will remember for a lifetime.

The master balcony is great to watch the sunset.

Thank you for sharing your home with us, quite a blessing.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this property! It was very clean and comfortable and the views were amazing! It was so great to sit on the deck and watch the sunset. The bunk room was great, the kids loved having their own place to hang out. The beach is super close and we loved the fresh water stream that ran through and into the ocean my 2 year old loved having his own kiddie pool to play in that was much warmer than the ocean with no streams. We tried out a couple other beaches but always ended up coming back to Rockaway beach. We also had fun crabbing in Garibaldi just a few minutes south of this rental. We also enjoyed eating the blackberries that were everywhere! Thanks for letting us stay in your home we will definitely come again and recommend it to others.

As Good as it Gets!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family came to stay for 3 nights and loved this home! It is a perfect location, just a short walk across the street to the beach. Rockaway Beach was the best, not crowded at all and beautiful views! This was much better than staying at busy Cannon Beach or Seaside. We also loved being near Tillamook and went to the cheese factory for a tour and lunch one day.

The home is so clean, updated and so spacious. We had 7 adults and 2 children with us and there was plenty of room. The only strange part is the bunk bed room, it is tucked away in the basement with no bathroom. But that really wasn't an issue, you just had to climb the stairs to get to the bathroom. The kitchen was so nice to have, we didn't have to eat out and brought most of our food from home. There was a dining table big enough for all of us and space to lounge in the family room. We loved the decks that overlook the beach. Our 3 year old train lover was so excited to have the train pass by right outside a few times a day. But it is just a passenger train so it wasn't loud or disruptive and did not travel at night.

Overall we loved the service we received and the owners were so easy to work with, the responded to our questions quickly and communicated well. We will definitely try to come and stay here again. Fantastic experience.

SOUTH OF ROCKAWAY BEACH: 5 miles south of Rockaway Beach is Garibaldi where you can go deep sea fishing. 10 miles south of Garibaldi is Tillamook (pop maybe 10K) with the famous Tillamook cheese factory that has daily tours and a large Fred Meyer one stop shopping store and a Safeway store as well. 20 miles south of Tillamook is Sand Lake where all the sand dunning people go to ride their quads or other dune vehicles.

NORTH OF ROCKAWAY BEACH: 5 miles north of Rockaway Beach is Wheeler where you can rent boats and go crabbing or fishing. 5 miles north of Wheeler is Manzanita, a cool little town to shop in. 10 miles north of Manzanita is Cannon Beach, also a cool town to shop in. 10 miles north of Cannon Beach is Seaside, a very lively but busy town. 15 miles north of Seaside is Astoria, the furthest point north in Oregon on the coast.
