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.

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!

Incredible Location & Supportive Staff
We found this "Gilkefeller" rental to be in a perfect location... right on the beach, with 2 decks and a patio to sit on and watch/listen to the waves. Private driveway with garage... very clean and comfortable, many sitting areas and full kitchen to prepare food which we enjoy very much. Even used the grill for fresh salmon one evening. Very comfortable king bed right by a patio door which allowed us to listen to the waves at night. Rockaway Beach is our favorite location as the town is not congested, noisy or touristy. We did day trips by car both south and north along the coast line to see key areas. It was great to be able to do a load of laundry while there, when we needed a light bulb and a power strip it was delivered by the next morning. The staff who respond to requests and concerns are stellar and so kind! Very responsive to our needs and queries. We would stay in a Starfish rental again in a heartbeat. Their staff are incredibly responsive and take great care of their rental properties.

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.

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!
