About Tina Buchanan
We are Rex and Tina, the owners of Driftwood Getaway. Although we live in Portland, the Oregon Coast, specifically Rockaway, is our second home. I was raised in the Aloha area but, I visited my grandparents here almost every weekend growing up and when Rex entered my life, this town became a second home for him, too. In fact - we were married here! We really enjoy the beautiful stretch of beach here, as well as the surrounding mountains. The town is quiet, not too busy even when busy on the holidays, and is a casual place to get away from our work lives. I am a Sign Language Interpreter and Rex is a Real Estate agent and Architect. We have three sons and are excited to make the coast a special place for them, too.
Tina Buchanan purchased this House in 2013
Why Tina Buchanan chose Rockaway Beach
A couple of years ago we began searching for a house to make into a beach home. We wanted a place to bring our future kids so that they could have the great beach experience I had growing up. The opportunity to turn it into a business was also in the forefront of our minds. We knew it would be our home but also a rental. The search was on to find a house that we felt was the "one". I remember seeing this house on a Saturday morning. From the outside - we really didn't think this was the "one". A little tall and boxy was my thought. But, the inside was playing another tune. It was dry, clean, and full of potential - THREE master bedrooms and an extra bathroom! TWO blocks from the beach! Open and a wrap around deck! So it was stuck in the 70's - with Rex's skill as an architect, we could transform this place into what we wanted. So we set out to do just that. The fact that we could accomodate three couples or families with their own masters was a real deciding factor for us. The clean lines and location were a bonus. We offered, negotiated, closed and started construction.
What makes this House unique
Really, I see the benefits in the layout of the house. Three bedrooms, each with a toilet and shower room and a vanity/dresser - not a typical set up in a beach rental. The wide open kitchen is perfect for feeding big groups. The great room is a nice gathering place. The wrap around deck is THE spot to catch the breeze, see pockets of ocean and gaze at the mountains. Not to mention the fact that star gazing is AMAZING at night! The shore pines on either sing with bird calls and you can spot several species.
