Have two Rockaway Beach experiences in one! This classic-meets-modern beach house was one of the first to be built on Rockaway Beach over a century ago, and also includes a new, luxurious “west wing,” complete with a spectacular gourmet kitchen and countless modern amenities—from a 75” SmartTV to tablet-controlled mood lighting.

Hidden Gem is directly oceanfront, with walls of windows for extraordinary sea views and low-bank access to 7 miles of pristine coastline.

Sit on the second-floor deck with a glass of wine and watch the kids build sandcastles in the sandy, fenced-in yard. Dig into a fresh seafood feast at the picnic table. Stroll the uncrowded beach in the morning with a mug of coffee from the Keurig.

Luxury in The West Wing

Hidden Gem has belonged to the same family for 50 years, and its current owner spent many summers here, so its recent restoration and addition were done with love!

In the newer section of the house, find a massive master suite (downstairs) with a king bed, soaking tub, and gorgeous walk-in shower.

Two more downstairs bedrooms both have king beds and share a bathroom, which has a tub/shower combo and a large capacity washer/dryer (one of two washer/dryers in the house). Tip: one of these two bedrooms has a wall of windows and a stunning ocean view. Grab it first!

Upstairs you'll also find the open-concept Great Room and an incredible foodie-approved kitchen, which is fully equipped and is stocked to the nines, from a Ninja blender to a wine fridge.

Sliding glass doors in this space open to the deck, where Adirondack chairs are waiting for you to settle in with a good book. Or just sit and look at the sea and Twin Rocks in the distance!

Classic Fun in the East Wing

The owner first intended to tear down this section of the home, but decided to keep it a little longer and welcome guests instead. Stay in a little slice of Rockaway Beach history while it’s still here!

This section of the house has a nostalgic beach cottage feel, with wood-paneled walls, concrete floors, a vintage pinball machine, and a laundry room/“mudroom” where you can shake off the sand after a day at the beach. Two plush leather sofas sit in front of a 65” Smart TV. Mix a drink from the wet bar, or grab a soda from the fridge and relax.

Two bedrooms in this section of the house both have queen beds and share a bathroom with a tub/shower combo.

A great spot for the kids and teens to hang out!

    Things to See & Do

    Local Attractions:
    Rockaway Beach is unlike other beaches along the Oregon coast. Rockaway Beach is the perfect family retreat and for those traveling with children. There are many things to do in Rockaway Beach, Oregon for kids as well as adults. Curious what more Rockaway Beach offers? Here are a few ideas:

    Explore~ Rockaway Beach is perfect for flying kites, taking long walks, building sandcastles, and cuddling in front of a bonfire. Scout for treasures in the sand, or simply stretch out and watch the kids. The list of Rockaway Beach activities and attractions is endless.

    Fancy a trip on an old-fashioned steam engine? Take a relaxing 5-mile ride on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad from Rockaway Beach to Garibaldi (or vice versa). You can even make it a date with a three-hour dinner train ride. The great outdoors offers plenty of things to do in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. If you love adventure, just a five-minute drive north of Rockaway Beach is Nehalem Bay, where you can try crabbing, clamming, fishing, and kayaking. Go crabbing at Kelly’s Brighton Marina, explore Oswald West State Park, visit Cape Mears Lighthouse, or hike Neahkahnie Mountain (we can recommend trails). South of Rockaway Beach is Tillamook, with the famous Tillamook Cheese Factory. Make sure you try the ice cream! Manzanita and Cannon Beach are to the north. Three Graces Tide Pools and Short Sands Beach, a surfer’s paradise, are also just a short drive away.

    Dine~ Guests in our Rockaway Beach vacation rentals often ask for restaurant recommendations. Here are a few restaurants in Rockaway Beach and their specialties:

  • Offshore Grill and Coffeehouse: Everyone loves this cute little spot with friendly service, delicious breakfast and lunch, and reasonable prices!
  • Old Oregon Smokehouse: A beloved seafood place. Don’t let the “beachside crab shack” ambiance fool you — the fish is fresh, delicious, and served with a smile.
  • Rick’s Roadhouse: This bar & grill has karaoke in addition to seafood favorites.
  • Lakeside Hideaway: A restaurant and sports bar offering clam chowder, pasta, burgers, beer, and karaoke.
  • Hawaiian Style: This is your spot for teriyaki chicken, rice, macaroni salad, and pineapple rings.
  • Sand Dollar Restaurant & Lounge: Enjoy the oceanfront view, seafood, and burgers.
  • Cow Belle Cafe: Greasy-spoon diner dominated by cow decor.
  • Grumpy’s Cafe: Giant pancakes, but the service is said to match the name.
  • Upper Crust Pizza: A cash-only pizza place with gluten-free options.
  • Dragonfly Sisters Espresso: This cash-only coffee spot has excellent scones.
  • The Picnic Basket: Grab ice cream or saltwater taffy only two minutes from the beach.

    Shopping~ Take a break from the attractions and enjoy some shopping in Rockaway Beach. From antiques to saltwater taffy, the funky shops in Rockaway Beach will keep you entertained. Here are a few:

  • The Frugal Crow: A mix of vintage finds and locally made goods. Reasonable prices and always friendly service.
  • Flamingo Jim’s: This gift shop has been around for almost 40 years. Souvenirs, postcards, kites, candy, and more.
  • Richard’s Metaphysicals: Quirky gifts and handcrafted items. Antiques, birdhouses, vintage photos, handmade fused glass jewelry, and picture framing.
  • Sea Breeze Gifts: Another gift shop. Tillamook ice cream, fudge, taffy, kites, and toys. Beach Crafters Mall: Peruse the crafts and pick up a bag of seashells for arts and crafts projects.
  • Trash & Treasures: Antiques and collectibles, including glasswork, vintage finds, jewelry, gifts, toys, and games.
  • Washed Ashore Arts, Crafts, & More: Glass art, blacksmithery, tie-dye, and other creations from more than 40 vendors.

    Relax~ You don’t have to do anything at all! Or venture out on the beach one morning to try meditation or yoga on the sand. Kick back with a fun paperback, or hole up inside by the fire for board game night if it’s rainy. Even though the list of things to do in Rockaway Beach, Oregon is extensive, simply relax and enjoy the scenery. Wander the coastline and snap some photos. Or grab some snacks from a local coffee shop and enjoy a mini-picnic on the beach. Even simple things are luxurious at the coast!

    Amazing location and rental
    This house is amazing, has lots of wonderful touches, and the owner is very interested in making sure that you can fully utilize all the little touches the house has to offer. We have loved out stay and will definitely be back. The access to the beach, the view, and the location is amazing. We have been so happy with the house and Starfish Rentals. —Jennifer B from Temecula California

    Beautiful Home and Property
    Hidden Gem is a lovely house with a gorgeous view. We had a wonderful family vacation there and hope to return soon. Starfish Rentals was very prompt at returning our emails when we booked the house, and even spent time on the phone with me reviewing different homes for specific dates we were trying to book within. I am very happy we booked our stay at Hidden Gem. If this property ever goes on the market, I hope I learn about it first :) —Guest

    A definite hidden gem!
    Hidden Gem is a wonderful home! You can not beat the location right on the beach, beautiful views to sit and enjoy. The remodeled portion of the house is amazingly appointed. The three king size bedrooms are fabulous & the master en-suite is a real treat. We also kept commenting on how well the kitchen was appointed, much better than other homes we have rented.
    We do have a couple of suggestions; my mother always said you need a chair in every bedroom & I agree. It would be nice to have dimmers one the overhead lights in the great room. And a few more options on wine glasses would be nice. But overall a fabulous place to stay at the coast. —Guest
