Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Here is the ultimate in family beach houses. Oregon Castaway puts the "ocean" in oceanfront! Great for several families or larger groups with accommodations for up to 8 people. Step off the deck and and walk 100 feet through the dunes onto the sand with miles of beach to explore. Windows line the front for a spectacular 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean, the Nehalem Jetty and Neahakanie Mountain. Relax on the large ocean side deck with lounge chairs for unwinding and listening to the waves. Another deck off the recreational room

is great for catching the morning sun.

The spacious living room has a great view with a vaulted ceiling, wood stove and ceiling fan. You can cozy up with a good book next to the wood stove or watch the storms roll in. You will enjoy the 40" Hi Def TV with Showtime, HBO and Starz. There is a separate recreational room with another TV with a VCR and Direct TV satellite along with a foosball table. There is a large selection of movies for you to enjoy.

The large fully equipped kitchen has everything for your cooking needs. The center island is a great gathering place while preparing meals. The oceanfront dining table seats 10 and the cooking island seats 3. There are 2 queen bedrooms. The loft has 5 single beds and a queen futon. There are 2 bathrooms - one with a washer and dryer and a door to the outside. Whether you come to the beach to relax and get away from it all or fill your day with the many activities available, Castaway is waiting for you.

Great Beach House

  • 4 of 5
I rented this home with my elderly mom, my sister and my two kids. We had plenty of space for us and more. The house is open and bright with beautiful views of the ocean from the kitchen and living room. Keep in mind there is a stairway that leads up to the front door of the house. This was a bit hard for my elderly mom. Also, the house does not provide paper towels or napkins so make sure to bring those along. It was a great beach house in a quiet community. We really enjoyed it!

January Rockaway beach visit - Great!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time returning to the Castaway home on Rockaway beach, and i must say that this go-around was equally as wonderful as the first time.

The home's floor plan is perfect for all ranges of fun, and the ocean views, even in stormy January, are still spectacular, making you feel like you are on the edge of the world! I am a boy at heart and i highly recommend this place to those who want to enjoy the coastal Northwest! - even during the cold and windy months of the year.

Things i liked in particular:
- nice wood burner to warm up the living room on cold days.
- home was, in my opinion, the cleanest "beach home" i have ever stayed in.
- amenities were great - coffee pot, toaster, oven, microwave, foosball, board games, flat screen – you name it!
- only 5 - 6 minute drive from the small town of Rockaway - great seafood and local restaurants!
- the beach! even with gray stormy sky’s the beach is always my favorite. There was old growth driftwood scatters all over the place, and at low tide you can peruse the hundreds of tide pools at the water’s edge.
- home owners are very easy and enjoyable to work with – a big-time plus!

Couple of things to note:
- the home books up pretty far in advance, so take that into consideration for the summer months!
- The town of Rockaway is off the beaten track, so expect low-volumes of people and little noise!

i definately plan on returning in the near future, and highly recommend this place to anyone considering staying at this home!

Had a fantastic time and will be back!

  • 4 of 5
First let me say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to rent here again and have recommended the house to several family members. That being said there were items that you ought to be aware of for your stay.

Kitchen:
- It said it had spices so I left mine at home. There were spices, but not always what I consider the basics, so I was scrambling to find stuff for the recipes I brought. I will say that I am a bit of a foodie, so what I consider basic may be more that most people.
- No paper towels or napkins. The house had toilet paper but no paper towel with which we could clean our messes in the kitchen or napkins for eating. We called a member of our group that was coming the next day to have him bring these items.
- The oven and microwave should come with instructions. I love cooking and am quite familiar with how to use these devices, but these models operated quite differently than what I am use to. It took five minutes to figure out the microwave and only a slightly shorter amount of time for the oven.

Bathroom:
As you would expect there is one bathroom attached to the master (downstairs) and one bathroom on the main floor. There is no bathroom upstairs in the loft, unfortunately this is where I slept. I didn't like having to go downstairs to use the restroom in the middle of the night or early in the morning when I was planning to go back to sleep.

Other than those small issues, which if you know about, are easy to get around, we had a blast and will definitely be back.
