Two weeks ago we were enjoying a much-needed family vacation at Rockaway Beach on the northern Oregon coast. Friends of ours own a beautiful vacation rental townhouse there, and we were fortunate to have four glorious nights to relax (as much as one can with four children and a husband who loves projects) and explore the area. The wife is an interior designer and she obviously had fun adding gorgeous details to this home.
The townhouse is three stories high. The main living area is on the second floor. It contains the kitchen, dining, and living room as well as a half bath (through the open door in the picture above). I was a tiny bit in love with the kitchen.
And the living room.
I loved the soft blankets and the cupboard full of board and card games.
A sliding glass door opened to the deck.
And the deck had a great view of the beach.
This is a view of the townhouse from the beach.
But, really, my favorite spot was upstairs.
There was a little reading nook in the master suite.
Another small balcony allowed more ocean viewing. The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad Steam Train went by on the tracks a few times each day. The kids loved watching the historic steam engine and waving to the passengers.
Also upstairs, a guest room and guest bath. [Luke begged for this quiet spot of his own. He is my orderly son who shares a small room with his two disorderly brothers.]
The entry to the house was on the first floor along with the garage. Behind the garage was a fantastic bunk room [which is where we sequestered the disorderly children].
The beach was just a short walk away.
We spent some time on the beach as well as exploring the areas north and south of Rockaway Beach. I’ll share more about our adventures in an upcoming post.
