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.

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.

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 .

Great place - short walk to Rockaway Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this rental! Rockaway Beach is about 2 blocks away and stunning! We spent hours on the front porch, reading and relaxing. Quiet and comfortable!

Clean but not comfortable

  • 2 of 5

We found 2 bedrooms 1 with queen room was of. The 2nd room was set up for kids with bunk style bed and my 5 ft 3 adult daughters feet hung over the end. Bath tub would hardly drain so we were getting ready for a family wedding standing in others bath tub water! :( steps on back deck loose and dangerous. Kitchen floor really close to going all the way through due to rotten subfloor! It was clean. But uncomfortable stay!

Owner's Response: I apologize for the bath tub. I called the plumber immediately upon being notified. Unfortunately it was a late Sunday. The problem has since been resolved. The bunk beds are standard size and their is a third room with a full size bed. As mentioned in the description the kitchen floors are wavy. They have new piers underneath them and have been reinforced so there is no way they could ever fail even though they are not perfectly flat. Somebody knocked out the cement post which caused a step to move. It has also been fixed

Great for a small family getaway

  • 4 of 5

The beds were comfortable, the House well stocked. It was clean and beautiful. The 4 of us sadly don’t get enough time together due to my husbands job and this house was the perfect size for us to spend much needed time together. Rockaway is a sweet little town with amazing an amazing beach.

Great little beach cottage. Just right for a family outing.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of common space and entertainment options on the TV. Easy walk to the beach. Quick access to town, shopping, restaurants. Quiet location, not fancy, but just right for a family with young children and pets. Nice little hot tub, but check the temperature on arrival as it takes a while to heat up. Nice deck to hang out on. Plenty of towels and linens. We really enjoyed our stay and would rent it again.
