The Gilkefeller Rockaway Beach

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 two queen sofa sleepers 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.

Perfect Beach Getaway
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.

Great Vacation !
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!

Great Rockaway rental!
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!

Manager Response: We love reading how much you enjoyed the location of The Gilkefeller along with it's front row view of the beach. It is a lot of fun to watch the action on the beach from one of the balconies. We are a local manager of boutique accommodations and aim to provide all the amenities one would want and need during their stay at our properties. Your 5 star review lets us know we're doing things right. We look forward to having you back soon!

The Gilkefeller
Overall, our experience at the Starfish rental was very good. The only issue was with the internet. It only worked on the last evening we were there. Someone from the management company had to come into the unit and spent over an hour there trouble shooting. The internet connection has a history of unreliability.

After troubleshooting with Charter, the local internet provider, the issue has been resolved so that future guests will have reliable service. Thank you for staying with us, and please do not hesitate to contact us directly with any further comments. Starfish Vacation Rentals

Birthday Celebration
Property was beautifully decorated and spotless with two exceptions, dried urine on toilet seat (male?) in the bathroom off the kitchen and a dirty spatula with dried food on it in a kitchen drawer. If you’re comfortable being a solid 30 minute drive from Cannon Beach and looking for quiet, this is a great place. The view is spectacular.

Manager Response: Thank you for your kind review of The Gilkefeller. We're thrilled you enjoyed the oceanfront view! We at Starfish Vacation Rentals pride ourselves on our high cleanliness standards, and are sorry to hear about the missteps in this area, no matter how small. I've already passed along your feedback to our property care team. We do hope we'll have another opportunity to welcome you to one of our homes soon.

Fantastic beachfront
The view and beach access alone are enough to stay again. Very clean home, comfortable furniture and fun games/puzzles provided. Although Rockaway isn't a "tourist" place with tons of shops or great restaurants, it's a quick drive up the coast to Cannon Beach. I wouldn't recommend this exact rental if you have small kids.. The 3 flights of stairs would probably put a damper on your stay, unless you're used to it.

Manager Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your experience with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed the view and convenient access to the beach, just steps outside the door. Rockaway is a great place to escape from the more crowded nearby towns, but still offers a variety of casual restaurants and shops, along with an 8 mile stretch of soft sand for flying kites, building sand castles, and long beach walks. This three story townhome provides amazing views of the beach, but due to the two flights of stairs, is not recommended for anyone with mobility concerns. Thanks again for staying with Starfish Vacation Rentals. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

Very nice condo, comfortable, clean and quiet. Kitchen was well stocked. Fabulous view and easy beach access!

Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review. The team at Starfish Vacation Rentals takes great pride in providing well-stocked, clean beach side accommodations, and we're pleased to hear that these were such positive aspects of your stay! We hope to welcome you again when your plans bring you back to the Oregon Coast.

Couldn't be better!
We loved ourt stay at the Gilkefeller. Panoramic view, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, electric fireplace, comfortable deck. It was great! The reservation people were easy to work with and friendly and met all our needs.

Manager Response: Thank you for your kind words. Our team at Starfish Vacation Rentals takes pride in offering well-equipped homes and in warmly welcoming our guests to ensure that each stay is memorable. Your review is a wonderful reward for their efforts. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to the coast soon!

Nice Townhome
Very clean and well appointed townhome in Rockaway Beach OR. Plenty of blankets, pillows and all kitchen items. We stayed here in January and were plenty warm. The sound of the Pacific Ocean waves at your footsteps sent up into a deep and restful sleep. Gas fireplaces to cozy up to. Drip coffee maker and plenty of kitchen items to make a seaside breakfast.

Quite this time of year.

3 fun days in Rock away
The townhouse was wonderful. Had everything you could possibly need. The access to the beach was super close and easy. Can't wait to come back again with other friends.
