Once upon a tide
The condo is in a great location in Rockaway. It was clean, spacious, easy to access and in good shape for the most part.
The o ly thing that was not awesome was the couch in the main living area. I can appreciate that it's a pull out bed and the extra sleep space might be a bonus for some, I would much rather a somewhat comfortable couch myself. The garage is a nice play space for kids, the ping pong table was in rough shape, but the kids still played, just gingerly. All in all, we would keep this vacation spot for future renting.

Once Upon A Tide
It really is a great location, seconds from the beach and close to other small towns and eateries. The condo itself is pretty and has nice but stained furniture. Important things like beds and kitchen were clean but much dust, dog hair and SAND was on all woodwork, decks and game /room garage . We were told two cars fit in garage but had to move the ping pong table etc before pulling in our small vehicles. The kitchen is well supplied and you do have a partial view over a smaller building. Just a warning: the TV is logged on to someone’s account so it is impossible to use your services. We could never make it work

Nice place, COMPLETELY obstructed view
by Alison B.
The townhouse is nicely maintained and has great beach access right across the street. However, the pictures have NOT been updated and do not reflect the current view. There is a now a taller building to the left of the shorter building in the pics that completely obstructs the ocean view. There's only a sliver of ocean view from the townhouse and while construction was noted in the description we felt the outdated pictures misrepresented the situation entirely. We would not have chosen to stay at Once Upon a Tide had we understood the current situation.
The unit was well maintained overall, very clean, but the carpet had many stains (probably pet accidents?).
We would probably not stay here again, or recommend, at the current price based on the lack of advertised ocean view.
Once Upon a tide was perfect for our family beach getaway, including our four legged friend. The location is pretty ideal, only a few feet from a beach access. The two different balconies allowed for everyone an opportunity to relax and take in the views. The rental was very clean and well equipped. We will definitely be back for more beach time.

This townhouse is very nice. We throughly enjoyed the week that we spent on the Oregon Coast and this townhouse was a big part of that enjoyment. The full kitchen, fireplace, washer and dryer all make this house very comfortable.
Amazing Mini Vacation
We had a great time at Once Upon a Tide. We booked on a last minute vacation and it was the perfect place to stay. They had everything that we could have needed for our stay. There is a new building that blocks partial view, but you still have a view of the ocean and beach on the third floor balcony and a great view of the sunset. There is also great access to the beach with rock stairs. My only suggestion was right when you walk into the main door they have a hose to rinse off your feet but there is some bark that makes it almost impossible to not track it into the house, maybe replacing that with some rock so the sand washes down into it. We just felt really bad about tracking it into the house and onto the carpeted stairs. We had an amazing time and would definitely stay here again!
Great little vacation
Very nice property with all the things needed for a comfortable stay including kitchen supplies. Other than the creaky flooring upstairs and the not very comfy couch, we were very happy. It's a lovely place.

With COVID restricting our ability to travel, this was the first time we traveled for pleasure. Just my wife and daughter and our dog. Walked on the beach, played lots of games, read books and simply escaped the confines of home. Just what we needed. Kitchen was well appointed so it was easy to stay in and cook... thank you for sharp knives and pans that do not stick! We enjoyed the view of the waves and being able to just walk across the street to the beach. Bummer someone built a new 4-story building blocking half the view. Want to come back in summer!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway
by Tammi B.
We absolutely loved our stay at Once Upon A Tide. This is our second stay and we enjoyed every minute. The closeness to the beach and easy access to amenities was wonderful. We highly recommend this rental and location for families or couples needing a well-appointed vacation rental.

Lovely Rockaway Beach Rental
by Carol B.
We were in town for my niece's wedding and wanted a 2-bedroom place on the beach in Rockaway. The location is great for walking on the beach, and also walking to get breakfast, lunch and dinner. The rooms are large, and there are 2 1/2 bathrooms. The only disappointment was the construction across the street.

We were not allowed in for 3 hours after contract time said we could go because cleaning lady was late. After we drove 6 hours we had to wait outside for 3 hours! Yet they held me to the very letter of the contract! Shag rug carpeting was old and worn, no beach chairs or beach towels for the price I paid there could've been a few nice touches like chairs. BBQ grease tray totally full and when we went to turn it on grease spilled all over my husband and covered the floor of the balcony! Overall it was just ok but I would never stay again.

We loved this rental. It’s literally 20 seconds and you’re on the beach. You have beach/ocean views from both balconies. There are 2 sets of stairs as there are 3 levels. The size was perfect for our little family of 4, but would still be comfy for 6/8 people. There is a hose by the front door which we loved as we were able to clean off our feet before going inside. The kitchen had everything we needed for full meals. The only downfall was that all of the blankets in the living room were full of dog hair, and an article of women’s clothing was found amongst the blankets. Also the refrigerator smelled like crab and made everything put in the fridge taste and smell like crab including the ice. Also there was no propane for the grille. So, other than those few things, the condo itself, location and price were great!
Lovely Vacation at the Beach
by Tammi B.
We had a lovely time at Once Upon A Tide. The home and location were great and we were literally steps away from the beach. We were able to take our dog with us which made for a worry free trip. The home was well appointed with everything we could need to feel relaxed and comfortable.
Due to unforseen circumstances, we had to leave a day early, but we were compensated for the missed day. We will definitely be back again and would recommend this home to those who want a great beach experience.
Our family needed a break and decided Rockaway Beach was the perfect getaway! Our stay was the most comfortable, clean and easy experience. Thank you for allowing our time with our family to be a stress free time! Highly recommend staying here.

Very Homey Condo
by Carol G.
This condo was very close to the beach and was clean and relaxing. Everything was perfect except for three things: 1) the master bed should have been replaced years ago-the dips were about 5” deep; 2) the sofa in the living room was uncomfortable (again, old and well used); and, 3) the temperature of the condo was 55 when we arrived. Otherwise, it was very clean and had everything we needed for our stat.

Oregon Rockaway Beach Weekend
While we didn't have a full ocean view, we did have a nice partial view from the living area balcony. The location had excellent beach access. The home was slightly worn, but in generally good condition and we felt at home. Great area to hang out, both inside and out. We could have used: dishrag, scouring pad, metal spatula, napkins, zip lock bags in the kitchen. Nightstand lamps in the smaller bedroom. We could not figure out how to make the TV work -- instructions would have been handy. We were able to watch Netflix and DVDs. It was nice to have puzzles and cards. We could have used an umbrella on the deck. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would book this home again.
Very restricted view location
by Suzanne F.
This is our second stay at this location. If we go back we would definitely stay away from the two buildings in front of this unit! The construction crew were not cooperative with us needing to put our truck in the garage. The photos shown on the site did not show the construction.
Reason for low ratings is unit carpet all needs cleaning ( especially stairs). Dust on lamps and just overall cleaning. We left the place cleaner than we found it.
Do like the units overall, but very disappointed in the restricted view.
Also did not have correct access code to get key! After long drive, very frustrating! Fortunately got someone on the phone who helped us.
Week of R&R
by Jim R.
Our stay at Once Upon A Tide was great. The quiet beach was exactly what we needed to relax and unwind.
We loved our stay. Wished We had a few more days to relax! Will definitely come back! Clean and comfortable. Must be able to do good with stairs as there is 3 levels. But overall beautiful place!
Rockaway Beach Condo
by Vincent D.
Lovely, modern three story condo, very new and clean. Right on the beach, in a great little town near to everything on the Northern Oregon Coast.
We requested extra blankets and had them delivered the same day, so the rental people are fast and on top of things.
Very nice place to stay with kids!
Mostly a good experience
by Geraldine W.
The unit was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The only comment is that the weekend was sunny and there are no blinds or drapes on the top level to block out the sun. The sun blinded us while eating dinner. It probably rarely happens but it was very annoying. Also, I did know that there were stairs in the unit however I under estimated how many. None of this should stop someone staying there if you are physically fit and I was not. Even with those minor annoyances we had a wonder stay

Perfect Get Away!
by Laurie F.
Perfect location, great weather and endless sights! One very slight suggestion is to stock a hair dryer in the rental. I am just not used to travelling with one anymore and all of the other rentals we have visited had one to use. Found one at Dollar Store!

Enjoyed our 8 night stay on the Oregon coast. The condo was spacious with a nice view of the ocean from the 3rd level. We walked and hiked for miles on the beach and at several of the amazing state parks that are close by. Drove to Cannon Beach several times and went to a play at the community theatre. Had a great time.

We enjoyed our stay. The property was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the location was great. The ocean view picture is somewhat deceiving because there is a duplex directly in front of you blocking direct beach access along with what appears to be a new building going up in front as well. However, i would still book this location again due to the view it does have as well as the overt all cleanliness of the stay. Short drive to cannon beach. Short drive to a nice Fred Myers grocery store.

Great stay! Can't wait to come back
The house is super close to the beach in the very quiet town of Rockaway Beach. It's just a few minutes drive from Manzanita, so is a great option.
The house itself is very comfortable, and would be great for a family (as long as you have kids who can navigate stairs. There are quite a few very steep staircases in the house).
It was exceptionally clean, and right next to the beach. The only thing we weren't quite expecting was the house is technically not directly on the beach—there's kind of a 70's looking condo building that blocks the view from the first 2 stories of the building, but you've got a clear view of the ocean from the top level. And if you really want to see the beach, just walk 1 minute.

Great location but need attention
It took us 40 minutes to get into the unit because the lock was rusted. We cleaned the mechanism and then had to connect the wires to the cable system to operate the TV. The carpet in the main bedroom was urine stained from animals. This unit needs owner attention. I didn't find a hair dryer if there was one and that is usually provided. We paid top dollar for the 4 days we were there and I expected more. The bar-b-que was very dirty. Location was good.
Really great time
by Melanie T.
We were looking for a get-away-from-crowds vacation and got exactly what we were hoping for with this rental. You are an easy walk across the beach of maybe 75 yards to the water's edge with miles of beach to stroll. Even the weather cooperated. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean, well kept and fully stocked. Extra towels, coffee filters, dishwasher pods, washing machine pods, and paper towels were provided. Satellite TV and WIFI were also available. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Loved eating breakfast on the balcony and listening to the ocean in the evening from the living room. We have done many Oregon coast vacations but we stayed in hotels. This was our first experience renting a condo and it will probably be the only way we stay on the coast in the future. This was a very nice property and I am sure we will be back.
Great stay - only word of caution: there is two flights of stairs every time you enter the condo since it is a reverse floor plan and you enter at garage, up a flight and a half to bedrooms and then another flight and a half to main living and kitchen. That's a lot of stairs.

Wonderful weekend at the coast
Such a wonderful weekend with the entire family including 2 toddlers. Condo was clean, nice and conveniently right on the beach! Roasting s’mores on the beach, walking to the shops, and all the delicious food. Will definitely be coming back.
Thanks for helping with Mothers day
I rented this unit for a mothers day gift. She was very happy with the whole experience. Thank you for making a smooth experience for both of us.
A little piece of paradise
by Tannica P.

Once Upon a Tide
by Patrick H.
Excellent beachfront get away.
2 day stay in the sun
A great location in a beautiful unit. Wonderful access to a incredible beach.
Relaxing beach weekend
The home is in a great location. Close to the beach and shops and restaurants. No need to eat out though- kitchen was well appointed and made cooking easy. Simple, comfortable furnishings and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! Perfect relaxing stay!
