Panoramic Oceanfront Views & Sunsets, Soaking Tub, King bed! Walk to town!

Welcome to The Gilkefeller! This premier oceanfront town home in Rockaway Beach, offered by Starfish Vacation Rentals, boasts a modern three-story design and two balconies, all ideally situated to capture breathtaking views of Twin Rocks and the expansive stretch of unspoiled sandy coastline that borders the property. This upscale 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home combines the plush amenities of a chic boutique hotel with all the comforts and conveniences of home.

The entire upper floor offers dramatic ocean views. The gourmet kitchen has gorgeous granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and it is well-supplied with high-end cookware and fashionable tableware for preparing and serving delicious meals at the large dining table. The bright, airy living room is furnished with a comfortable reclining leather couch, gas log fireplace, cable-equipped television, and DVD player. From the upper balcony, immerse yourself in refreshing ocean breezes while sipping a glass of wine and grilling on the gas barbecue.

Two large sleeping rooms on the middle floor and one queen sofa sleeper on the ground floor accommodate up to six guests: the spacious master suite boasts its own ocean-view balcony, luxurious Jacuzzi soaking tub, and comfortable king bed; a second guest bedroom offers a queen bed and adjoining full bathroom. Each room includes a flat-screen TV.

On the ground level, mix up a drink at the minibar and walk out the door to golden, soft sand between your toes. Rockaway Beach offers seven miles of pristine sand, perfect for long walks, exploring for treasures, flying kites, creating elaborate sandcastles, and building roaring bonfires. Beach chairs, wetsuits, kites, sand toys, and towels are provided for hours of convenient fun right out your back door!

When you are ready to venture off the beach, you have restaurants, ice cream parlors, and quaint antique shops within a five-minute walk. Traditional festivals—Kite Festival, Pirates Festival, Arts &Crafts Fair—are sponsored throughout the year, and you can enjoy concerts in the nearby park during the summer months. Just a short drive away are Cannon Beach, Manzanita, Three Graces tide pools, Nehalem Bay (for great crabbing, clamming, fishing, and fresh seafood), the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Oswald West State Park (with miles of hiking trails), and Cape Mears Lighthouse.

Whether getting together with girlfriends, vacationing with family, or enjoying a romantic weekend with your sweetheart, you are sure to appreciate the understated elegance of The Gilkefeller and its serene yet central location.

    "The Gilkefeller has an amazing location, is well-equipped, and beautifully/comfortably furnished. We loved the easy access to the beach and the ability to sit on the patio or decks and watch all the views and action. It exceeded our expectations!" May 2018

    "Spent a Relaxing week in early May at this beautifully decorated place. Just steps from the beach with Gorgeous Ocean Views, this place had everything we needed. (Could do with some new pots & pans though) It is a great place to spend time with friends and family. Nannette was very thoughtful and helpful !

    Manager Response: The owner enjoys decorating and recently invested in refurnishing her condo. She will be so happy to hear that you enjoyed the new decor too and had such a great time there with your friends and family. We're so sorry about the pots/pans and are working on bringing them up to our standards right away. We hope to welcome you back to Rockaway Beach soon!

    "The home is super clean and comfortable. The balconies have great views and the beach is steps away. The beach is not too busy and the neighborhood/town is quiet." Aug 2018

    "This vacation rental is gorgeous! The decor and furnishings are really nice! The beds, pillows, and linens in the bedrooms were a dream! We didn't have the need to use the pull out sofa beds downstairs so we can't speak for the comfort level there. The home was stocked with plenty of extra everything. There were plenty of chairs and toys to take down to the beach and even two children's size wet suits which was really cool and unexpected! There are tons of cute shops and stores and little restaurants all within walking distance. Don't even get me started on the view!! So breathtakingly beautiful! The beach is steps away from the patio and the hose next to the door makes sand clean up a breeze! The windows in the second bedroom were both stuck shut but it wasn't an issue for us because the whole house stayed really cool with just a few other windows open. We did let management know and they did offer to have them fixed before our stay was over but we opted to have them wait until we left. The last night of our trip we found that the clothes dryer was out of commission so we didn't get to wash our laundry before we headed home like planned. Another minor inconvenience that didn't cause us too much grief but I felt inclined to mention. Overall we loved it and plan to hopefully stay there again!" Sept 2018

    "We were really happy with the location and all the amenities that came with the unit. It accounted for more things that we didn't even anticipate. A very comfortable unit and steps from the beach made this really convenient for the kids and grandparents. This was a great find and we'll certainly be back." Sept 2018

    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!
