While our oceanfront Oregon Coast vacation rentals are located on the spectacular 7 mile Manzanita Beach, just 15 minutes south of us you'll find the very popular Rockaway Beach.
Our reader Sandy J. contacted us yesterday with a question, and it's not the first time we've been asked:
Where are the best Rockaway Beach Oregon Rentals?
While my father settled on Manzanita Beach for his dream Oregon Coast beach house - later to become our first Manzanita Rental, our Oceanfront Cottage - we know nearby Rockaway Beach has lots of fans.
There's a different flavour, almost the Coney Island of yesteryear, with such fun annual events as the Rockaway Beach Kite Festival, Rockaway Beach Pirate Festival, and the Rockaway Beach Firecracker Weiner Nationals!
But back to the Rockaway Beach Rentals - where are the best Rockaway Beach house rentals?
As we stay in our Manzanita Oregon area, if we were looking for a Rockaway Beach Rental we'd first try the following methods:
VRBO Rockaway Beach Oregon
VRBO Oregon Coast (then narrowing the search results from there)
Homeaway Rockaway Beach, OR
Homeaway Oregon Coast (then narrowing the search results from there)
Airbnb Rockaway Beach Oregon
Airbnb Oregon Coast (again narrowing the search results)
As a word of caution, educate yourself regarding before booking your Rockaway Rental.
Read our suggestions for the best Vacation Rental websites here. Find out about the service fees you'll pay when using listing sites such as VRBO, HomeAway, Airbnb, etc. You don't want to book the perfect VRBO Rockaway Beach Rental and be surprised when paying more than you expected.
If you're booking with alternative methods than the traditional listing sites, such as a Rockaway Beach vacation rental by owner of the property, be sure to read our suggestions for finding your perfect Oregon Coast vacation rental.
When booking using sources other than vacation rental listing sites, we'd use the following searches on your favorite search engine site when trying to locate a great Rockaway Beach Rental - be sure to expand your search, as such places like Manhattan Beach Oregon are within the Rockaway Beach Oregon area. And don't forget alternative Rockaway Beach lodging options such as camping and RV parks:
Rockaway Beach Resort
Manhattan Beach Oregon Rentals
Rockaway Beach Lodging
Hotels near Rockaway Beach Oregon
Rentals near Rockaway Beach Oreogn
Lodging near Rockaway Beach Oregon
Expanding your search can open you up to new and wonderful places just outside of Rockaway Beach. You can find a Rockaway Beach Oregon map here to narrow your search.
Manzanita Beach Life Insiders Tips: Manzanita Beach Life reader Monty A. suggests the Manhattan Beach State Park, due to the "outstanding access to the beach, picnic area, clean restrooms and good parking." Manzanita Beach Life seconds that recommendation - it's a wonderful, easy access location. Lea G. recommends the Getaway Oceanfront Lodging at Rockaway, and particularly likes the top floor rooms.
We hope this has helped in your search for the perfect Rockaway Beach Rental! The cool thing about our northern Oregon Coast communities is there's something for everyone.
