Stevie & Zoe Saleem are the owners of 3 beautiful vacation rentals in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. We have put great love and care in creating three distinctly unique and restful beach retreats to be enjoyed by all. Our Cottages are wonderful romantic retreats for couples or great family and pet friendly retreats for all ages.
We chose Rockaway Beach for our Cottages because it reminded us of the quiet, old-fashioned beach towns our families enjoyed in our youth. It has a beautiful 7 mile stretch of pristine sandy beach, uncrowded and public access on the entire one of the few beaches in Oregon that still allows campfires on the beach. It is a quick, easy access from Portland, and an ideal location for exploring the natural and historic sights of Northern Oregon Coast and mouth of the Columbia River.
We hope you enjoy these special places as much as we do.
