The Gilkefeller Rockaway Beach

Panoramic Oceanfront views & sunsets, Soaking Tub, King bed! Walk to town!






Please note (1/1/19): There is construction of a new home on a nearby lot this winter. We anticipate a diminished northerly view once this home is completed, and we have adjusted rates accordingly. New view photos will be taken once the home is completed. Beach access directly across the street from The Gilkefeller will not be impacted. Please inquire if you would like more details.

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.

Awesome rental
We had a great time. The house was very nice just steps to the beach. Cute town. Would definitely recommend. My only criticism would be the master bathroom had a mildew smell and the towels also smelled

Clean, great location. The Management was great and we didn't need anything except food to cook, personal items :) Will certainly go back. The view was fantastic and relaxing

Laid back and relaxing
Staying at the Gilkefeller was so relaxing and laid back. The house was perfectly set up. Everything we needed was there. The view was perfect as well. We will be back. There was several things to do close by too. We went hiking at Munson falls, just a short drive south. Walking on the beach was really enjoyable.

So relaxing!
If you've never hit the OR coast in winter, you owe yourself the favor. Walk the beaches nestled under a wool cap then cozy up next to a fire.
And if you stay at this specific location, at bedtime you are cocooned in luxurious down so warm you can crack the balcony door and listen to the ocean as you drift off to sleep. The property manager was so nice to check on us via text, to see if all was well. ONLY thing I lacked was a good kitchen knife for chopping, but I got by with what they had.

Lovely Holiday at Gilkefeller
My husband and I stayed for 5 days, 4 nights along with another couple. We love the condo, it had plenty of room for the 4 of us. They had everything that we needed. We loved being able to see and hear the ocean. Rockaway Beach is a cute little town and lots of great things to do within a short drive. We enjoyed being there off season and the rainy weather. We highly recommend Roseanna's in Oceanside for lunch or dinner.

family reunion at Rockaway Beach
We always enjoy spending time on the Oregon Coast and Rockaway is our favorite place to stay. We have family that lives there and it is short drives to get to other beautiful coastal areas.

Manager Response: We're thrilled that you chose to spend your time in Rockaway Beach. The central location on the Coast allows for fantastic day trips to other beaches in the area. We hope you come back to visit family and stay with us again soon. - Starfish Vacation Rentals

Almost exactly perfect!!
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!

A Great Getaway
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.
