About the property

I really strive to continuously improve this house and make my guest experience better and better. I just finished my latest round November 2016 and it keeps getting nicer. High Speed Internet and I just bought a brand new hot tub March 2014. Great place to escape from Portland and get your work or studying done. Beach is two blocks away. Lake is one block away. Remodeled beach cabin with 50 inch flat screen TV, Apple TV, DVD Player, New Living Furniture July 2016, Cable, Stereo with IPOD hookup, Barbecue, bamboo floors, newer beds. Kitchen with slab granite countertops and snackbar. Fair warning that the kitchen is nice but the floors are wavy. Dining room table seats 8. Excellent for those with kids. Washer, Dryer, Clawfoot bath tub. Bath off of master with New Sealy Posturepedic Queen Bed and new 560 thread count sheets and a cozy down comforter with Percale Duvet.. Sliding glass door and deck off of second bedroom with a full size fold out futon. Third Bedroom has a bunk bed with a new Sealy Full Size Mattress on the bottom, 560 Thread count Sheets and Down Comforter on the bottom and a twin up top. You can see Twin Rocks from in front of the cabin. New ductless heating and A/C unit. Two blocks to the best beach in Rockaway which is directly in front of the Twin Rocks. Parking for an RV on the side. Great swimming and fishing in Spring Lake which is one block away. Good Boating less than one mile away in Lake Lytle. Garibaldi is about 4 miles away with Ocean Fishing access. Mountain Biking 1/2 mile away. Most pets are fine with an additional $35 cleaning fee.

About Tom Cooper

Oregonian, Grew up in Eugene and attended University of Oregon. Live in Portland now. These beach houses are going to be part of the thing that keeps me busy when I finally retire. I love fixing things and the houses are constantly being improved.

Tom Cooper purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Tom Cooper chose Rockaway Beach

Rockaway is a great town. This property is close to the beach and in a great spot for multiple adventures with the kids or a special someone.

What makes this cabin unique

It's nice to relax in the hot tub after a walk at the beach. The high speed internet makes it a great place to work or study away from home for not too much money. Beds are super comfortable and everything you need is provided to have a relaxing vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have never stayed in Rockaway before and it was our 2nd time booking from the VRBO website. I was not optomistic that I could find a place for 4 people and a dog at the last minute. Getting a cabin was a leap of faith because we usually stay in condo's. This place fit all our needs comfortable. I felt a bit nostalgic because the craftsmanship reminds me of an old victorian house I moved into when I first got married in the 70's. We enjoyed the remodel. We loved the birds nest in the tree out back. You don't often get ato see birds in residence up close. The beach is just a hop, skip and jump away.

We had great weather while we were here. Loved taking our dog through walks in the neighborhood. This really is a place to unplug and unwind. It seems like a ghost town around us. Very relaxing.

Thank you .

The Salmon were biting

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay, nice quite cabin. The cabin is very nice with all one

one would need for a great holiday. The owner ":Tom" has done a great job in keeping the

place in great shape. I really like the area as I was able to park my boat trailer

while I moored my boat. The cabin is also close enough to the ocean so one can

hear the surf on the beach. Yes we caught some nice King salmon.

Hope to be back in a year

Convenient and met our needs

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this conveniently located home with an easy 3 minute walk to the beach. Location was pleasantly quiet. Even though you couldn't see the beach you could hear the ocean. Having laundry services was a bonus. Rental was well equipped and master bed was comfy. We would definitely stay again. Thank you for the complimentary wine and popcorn.
