About the property

Octalope - Large Ocean Front House 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, 2 Kitchens and Arcade

An ocean front house with 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 separate kitchens and an arcade on a huge lot! This is a great place for a large extended family or for several families to share, or for smaller groups that just need a lot of bedrooms.

The house is located on a quiet, dead-end street in south Rockaway Beach about half a mile south of the Twin Rocks and 1.5 miles south of downtown Rockaway. It is a side-by-side duplex with interior doors that open to combine the 2 units. Each side has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open kitchen/living/dining areas.

The two main living areas (kitchen, dining and living) are upstairs to take full advantage of the views and there is a large deck that extends across the entire house that overlooks the ocean and Twin Rocks. Plus there are four bedrooms with queen beds and two bathrooms upstairs. Downstairs you will find two more large bedrooms, each with queen beds, sleeper sofas, full bathrooms and LCD televisions. The downstairs bedroom on the North side also has twin bunk beds in addition to the queen bed. There are also 2 fold down sleeper sofas, one in each living room. That’s enough room to sleep 14 people in beds and 4 more on sleeper sofas, for a total of 18.

Pets are permitted with owner approval (each pet must be approved and max of 2 pets total).

The 3/4 acre property is right on the beach and the house sits on the east side of the lot, about 500 feet from the ocean. A private path through our private yard leads you down some stairs, across a wooden bridge over a stream and through a small wooded area to a quiet beach with a great view of the Twin Rocks. Along the path, you will also pass our new Hobbit Hole play house for the kids (or adults) to enjoy when they get tired of the beach or the arcade.

There is a hot tub on the lower deck with a view of the ocean.

The two garages each have an arcade game room with air hockey, ping pong, foosball, Double Shot two player basketball games, Super Mario Bros multicade (with 19 different games including Mario Bros, Joust Defender and many more) and a Dig Dug multicade (with 60 games including Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Dig Dug and many more), Area 51 and Extreme Hunting 2-person shooting games. 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 enough room to park 6 vehicles. There is no additional on street parking because the house is located on a private dead end road.

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.

Great house for our large family. Big enough for us all to eat together and places for quiet time.

  • 4 of 5

Nice house but not so much that we worried about having fun in it. Grandkids loved the arcades in the garage. It kept them occupied in the mornings and late at night. The house was equipped with everything we needed. Walk to the beach wasn't that far and will be wonderful when they get everything done. It provided a bit of adventure while getting to the gorgeous beach. The Little's in our family enjoyed the "nome" house with the dishes and plastic food.They had fun playing. The hot tub was a great addition. Appreciated the fact that there is plenty of parking we had a 12 passenger van a truck and a Honda van and we had lots of room. Loved the fact that there were two washing machines and two dryers... with all of us It really helped and thanks for having detergent for us to use. Used one fridge just for drinks the other for food...worked out perfectly... Beds were OK a little hard for all of us since we all have pillow tops or memory foam on top of ours.

Incredible family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get-together with ages from 3 - 64, and everyone loved it. Easy beach decor, fantastic views, the hot tub was a MAJOR hit, and such a pleasant stroll to the ocean. Great communication from the owners, and well equipped. We all had space to get together without feeling like we were on top of each other. Absolutely loved the location.

Having a washer and dryer was a real bonus.

Wonderful large family gathering place. Sara May 19-22 2017

  • 4 of 5

Our family all 14 of us spent 4 days at Octalope for my husbands 80th Birthday. The property was a perfect match for a large group. It came with plenty of comfortable beds and everything needed in the kitchens except one side had the coffee maker and other side had the microwave, made for a little confusion at times but did not stop us from having a great time. Fires on the beach at night, baseball games during the day. Our 2 great grandchildren loved the Hobbit House. Would rent this property again.
