Description of the Rockaway Beach vacation home rental
Top Rated Vacation Rental in Rockaway!

Come experience the amazing view and beautiful interior of this award winning oceanfront condo in Rockaway Beach. A spectacular wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and a private deck take in glorious beach, ocean and mountain views.

Windows on the Sea is the 1225 sq. foot prime corner unit directly in front of the water with an unbroken view up an down our 7 mile long sandy beach. With front row seats to enjoy the ever-changing elements, there's nothing between you and the sea. Gorgeous in sunny weather, there's also no better place for storm-watching or relaxing with a good book or project in the winter.

Our small complex is tucked away at the quiet north end of Rockaway Beach. The modern curved building offers each unit complete privacy from neighbors, and with the stout concrete construction, it's virtually sound proof. Windows on the Sea is beautifully furnished in a modern style, and offers more thoughtful amenities than you've probably ever experienced in a rental. It features two bedrooms with quality beds, 1 king and 1 queen. Both have firm mattresses with pillowtops and 550 thread-count double-ply linens. Two luxurious marble and tile baths have glass-enclosed walk-in showers, plus a large soaking tub in the master bath. We are the only unit in this building with a water heater appropriately sized to both heat the space and sufficient water for the giant tub and all of your other water needs - we've upgraded the 50-gallon hot water tank to a 120-gallons! We also are the only unit with solar shades on some of the huge view windows for relief from the intense sun on exceptionally bright and hot days, and black-out shades in the bedrooms which face the rising sun in the morning. Cook and sip in a gourmet kitchen with all new stainless appliances while enjoying the view. Our kitchen is equipped for a cook, with virtually everything you might be reaching for. Barstools line the kitchen island, and there's a round glass-top dining table next to the balcony windows, where there's a gas BBQ, cushy chairs and a table. The condo includes a 32” Sony LCD TV with satellite (including HBO and Showtime) and Blu-ray/DVD player, along with free wireless internet so you can be as connected as you want to be. There's also a library of CDs, DVDs and books for your enjoyment. The ground floor is the parking, giving the condos above elevated views. Windows on the Sea is on the top floor with vaulted ceilings and long views all the way up and down Rockaway's amazing 7 mile sandy beach. You see the Nehalem Bay jetty to the north with Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain looming behind it, and the Twin Rocks to the south. Windows on the Sea has its own private elevator (the only one in working order!), and a cart to help you easily bring your things up in one quick trip. There's also a stairway for those who prefer.

Whether you're here simply for quiet time to breath in the restorative sea air, or to work, write, or play, this is a perfect flexible space for whatever you need. Be our guests and let the beautiful pacific inspire you. Come and discover the magical place that is Windows on the Sea.
Area Information
Windows on the Sea sits directly on the beach in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. Rockaway Beach is on Highway 101, the Pacific Coast Highway, 1 hour and 45 minutes from Portland via the scenic Highway 6 following the Wilson River to Tillamook. From Tillamook, Rockaway is a 20-minute drive north on Highway 101. Windows on the Sea is a recently finished condo in a small complex 1.5 to 2 miles north of the town center.

Rockaway Beach is a sleepy, old fashioned little beach town. It's a quiet place with a half dozen restaurants and as many shops. Recreational options include crabbing, clam digging, fishing, hiking, kite flying, surfing, storm and whale watching, great beach combing, and fun events year round.

This part of the coast is rich with charming towns to explore.

The historic town of Wheeler, famous for its antique shops, is on Nehalem Bay just 7.5 miles to the north. The hamlet of Nehalem featuring a winery and several galleries is 10 miles north, and the beautiful village of Manzanita, 12 miles north, offers great dining, shops, and horseback riding.

Garibaldi is 5 miles south of Rockaway and hosts a Maritime museum and myrtlewood factory, along with a pier and marina with everything you need for crabbing and clam digging on Tillamook Bay.

Tillamook, the county seat, is 15 miles south and is well known for its tour-able Tillamook Cheese and Blue Heron Cheese companies, the Tillamook Air Museum, Cape Lookout State Park, and the beautiful Three Capes scenic drive.

Excellent choice for condo rental. Situated on the beach, with spectacular views. The condo is more than well appointed. Attention to detail by the owner, Denise, is superior. Gourmet kitchen, stocked with all the basics, entertainment with movies, books, and music. Words definitely do not do this vacation al rental justice. Everything is top notch, not cheap. Denise is a wonderful host.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

A Healing Bit of Heaven.
My husband booked Windows on the Sea for the day after I concluded a 2 year long intense, exhausting creative endeavor. He knew I would need a place where I would feel nurtured. Arriving to a room with a wall of windows where all you see is vast ocean was the first great gift of Windows on the Sea. Add to that a well appointed kitchen to make delicious dinners, super comfy bedrooms and lovely bathrooms that were spacious and clean. It was such a luxury to bring our dogs and not have to compromise the quality or esthetic of our accommodations! It was the best thing in the world to lay on the floor with them, the sun streaming in and then bounce down to the beach immediately outside any time we felt like it! I was concerned at first that there was no fireplace but the second I voiced that concern a twinkling bon fire appeared down on the beach! Magic! It couldn't have been a better place to reflect and regenerate. We did leave a few times to drive around and explore but kicked ourselves each time! Why leave? We had the best view on the beach! We will remember that next time. I hesitate to share my enthusiasm for this special place because I want it all for myself!
Adrienne F. (JULY 2016)

Absolutely wonderful!
From the time I first contacted the owner about this property a year ago, to the time we checked out, everything about booking this property and staying there was perfect. It seems she has thought of everything a guest could want or need and it was all in great condition: towels, utensils, sheets, etc. The condo was spotless, as if we were the first people ever to stay there. A few hours before we arrived, Denise called to let me know that something was wrong with the TV. She arranged for a new box to be sent from DirectTV, but that didn't solve the problem so she drove all the way from Portland to bring us the TV from her own home to use for the week! We were really impressed with how much she cared about making our stay nice. The view is incredible. The photos don't do it justice; it's even better in person. We will definitely be back and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Rockaway Beach now that we've experienced Windows on the Sea.

Nothing but accolades!
Over the past 20 years we have stayed in many rental places along the Oregon coast....some good and some not so good. I have to say that Windows on the Sea was (is) by far the best of all! The number one reason is probably the location. You can't get much closer to the beach than this, and you'll never find a better view! Denise has put every imaginable thought into her place to create a luxurious environment which you don't want to leave. From the moment you first step off the elevator and look out the wall of windows you know you found the right place! Everything else is just icing on the cake. Already looking forward to going back!
J. Bloom (JUNE, 2016)

"Literally right on one of the best beaches of many gorgeous and long beaches in Oregon. Take the elevator - which stops right inside the condo - and walk out to the beach, Superb layout, very well furnished in nice style. Very well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Spotlessly clean. Very comfy beds. High quality TV and accessories. The whole area doesn't have any high quality restaurant except the Rising Star in very nearby Wheeler. All of which makes for a great week or few days of walking and running your dogs on the beach, reading, and relaxing while cooking up what you like to eat. We have rented spots all over the world for decades and this is an excellent one."
Mike & Sarah (JANUARY, 2016)

"This condo is so very superior! It doesn't get any better than this! Beautiful décor and furniture, excellent kitchen with every utensil you could possibly need. The VIEW is spectacular....constant ocean view seen through a wall of windows! The elevator makes it so easy to transfer all your luggage and groceries up to the condo. Huge soaking tub in the master, large walk in showers in both baths. Besides the view being the BEST ever....it's very quiet and private at this condo. So if you want a peaceful get away, this condo is PERFECT! Immaculate, and did I mention we LOVED it?"
Carole L. (MARCH, 2016)

"We stayed here as a family for 5 days at the end of March and were we in for a treat! First, your private elevator deposits you into the kitchen and spacious living room which has the most gorgeous and amazing views of the ocean you could hope for. You are greeted by a modern, well appointed kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, beautiful bathrooms and instant access to the beach. I'll never get tired of waking up, coming out of the bedroom and being greeted by the surf and sun at the end of the hallway. Spectacular. It was so relaxing after doing activies during the day to come home and just drink in the intoxicating view of the ocean and the sounds of the surf. Beautifully decorated, every convenience and comfort are provided by the owner who makes you feel at home from the first time you talk. We love to cook and when my daughter wanted to make creme Brule for an after dinner treat one night, there were even ramekins for us to use in the kitchen, every conceivable need has been anticipated. Truly a spectacular and memorable week at this amazing rental! We will be back many more times!"
