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 a new son and are excited to make the coast a special place for him, too. Our dog already loves it here.

Tina Buchanan purchased this house in 2013

Why Tina Buchanan chose Northern Coast

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.

We enjoyed your creative decorating and we were very comfortable. The only thing we found not working was the ice maker/cold water feature on the refrigerator. We felt it was possible that feature had not yet been connected. Thank you!

Wonderful Oregon Coast Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were three couples in our 60's/70's who travel together every fall. My husband and I retired to New Mexico from the Portland area and really missed going to the coast. We all agreed that would be our destination for this year's trip. We have been using Home Away and have been very happy with the majority of rentals throughout the country. Tina Buchanan's home was no exception. We had a fantastic time and found the house to be very comfortable and well equipped, including a crockpot and an electric grill. Unfortunately, we were unable to get the outdoor grill to work, which could have been user error. The few suggestions we would make are: some type of hooks or wall rack in each bedroom, as there are no closets; one couple suggested heavier curtains in the bedrooms; perhaps better organized large utensils.......everything was there, just difficult to find!

The home is very welcoming and clean......we also had a bottle of wine as a welcome gift. I highly recommend this house. It is also centrally located between Tillamook (the BEST ice cream and cheese) and Cannon Beach (great place for browsing the shops and galleries) !!!!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. I loved the open floor plan, the decorations. The bedrooms were sizable and unique, and the attached bathrooms were super convenient. I slept in the middle room and would have appreciated an adjustable shower head, just because I'm short and the shower is necessarily small, but the water pressure was divine.

It was an easy, short walk to the beach down quiet, residential roads. In the three days we were there, I think we saw three vehicles. The beach itself is fairly secluded, set near the jetty, with lots of loose sand and driftwood. It was great for building with and making a fire.

I loved every minute of our vacation and would definitely love to go back. The only thing that could possibly have made the property more perfect would be a hot tub. Thanks, Tina and Rex, for a lovely experience!

Lofty ocean peace! Spacious, modern, well equipped, comfortable, great experience

  • 5 of 5

This house is a perfectly peaceful place to retreat to after exploring the shops and sights of Rockaway and surrounding towns. The open floor plan is perfect for lounging and fixing meals together. The wrap around deck is fully enclosed so children and dogs are safe roaming around, a huge plus for us. Delightfully decorated, fully stocked. Having your own bathroom in each large room just added to the comfort, along with fun, modern electric fireplaces in each room. We could hear the ocean as we relaxed on the deck, and the path to the long, sandy beach is just a few blocks away. Saw deer, birds, and rabbits. The owners were prompt, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. We will return for sure!

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

You have a nice home. Thank you for letting us enjoy it too. Only had a couple ideas for you to consider doing to improve upon. Finish the stairs, clean the stair carpet (really dirty/spotted), clean windows (we cleaned kitchen windows so we could see out), clean outside of house (lots of dirt and cobwebs). House not very impressive from outside/first impression not good. It is a comfortable house and worked very well for us. Thanks again.

Nedonna Beach is on the end of the 7 mile stretch of beautiful beach and terminates at the Jetty - the mouth of the Nahalem Bay. Walk the beach, watch fisherman from the jetty, watch the sea lions and seal steal the salmon from the fisherman. Close by are many activities - hiking, surfing, crabbing, deep sea fishing, antiquing, etc.
