Interaction with Guests
Guests have access to cottage through lock-box...let selves in upon arrival. Sorry, we live in Portland and only get to visit the beach once a month, so won't be able to meet you personally, but we do have a Care-taker that lives a few miles away, should you need some assistance at the cottage. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have at any time....Stevie (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). If I do not answer, please don't rely on voicemail only, but rather text and I will call you promptly. If you are unable to reach me and have an URGENT, non-emergency need, please contact our caretaker at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
The Cottage is conveniently located just 2 blocks from the beach and town center. Please note that the back fence does back up to the open parking lot of the local pizza parlor (please see photos), Pros: it does afford a more open view to the stretch of houses along the beach and easy/convenient access to great pizza :)...cons: some traffic on the other side of the fence, and limited privacy, but the pizza place is not super busy and has limited days and hours of operation.
Lots of great little antique/vintage shops in Rockaway and surrounding towns, such as Wheeler (3 miles north), and Garibaldi (5 miles south). Our favorite in town: The Frugal Crow!
During summer season, the Oregon Coast Scenic Railway does and stop in Rockaway, with a fun, 3 hour round trip north to Wheeler and Nehalem Bay, then back south to Garibaldi. If coming from Portland area, there is a very affordable bus/shuttle from Tillamook (12 miles south), called The Tillamook Wave, and Tillamook County has a transit system that goes north to Rockaway Beach and surrounding towns.
Other Things to Note
The Cottage can sleep up to 5 guests...the main bedroom with super comfy king, the second sleeping room is very small (no closet) and has a double futon sofa/bed with single bunk over top...please note; the futon is very firm.
Cell Phone Service: Cell service can be at times difficult in Rockaway Beach, depending on your carrier. Verizon and T-Mobile tend to have an easier time than others :(
Location: Please note that our back fence does back up to the open parking lot of the local pizza parlor, thought the back yard is fenced and private.

Stevie & Zoe Saleem are the owners of 3 beautiful vacation rentals in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. We have put great love and care in creating three distinctly unique and restful beach retreats to be enjoyed by all. Our Cottages are wonderful romantic retreats for couples or great family and pet friendly retreats for all ages.
We chose Rockaway Beach for our Cottages because it reminded us of the quiet, old-fashioned beach towns our families enjoyed in our youth. It has a beautiful 7 mile stretch of pristine sandy beach, uncrowded and public access on the entire (URL HIDDEN) one of the few beaches in Oregon that still allows campfires on the beach. It is a quick, easy access from Portland, and an ideal location for exploring the natural and historic sights of Northern Oregon Coast and mouth of the Columbia River.
We hope you enjoy these special places as much as we do.
