We are 4 women who have stayed here 3 years in a row. Love that we each get our own bedroom. Cabin is old with few upgrades. Dining table is in the kitchen making it cramped, but kitchen is plentifully stocked with pans, bowls, utensils. Nice big living room, comfortable couch and chairs. A nice place to stay for the rustic experience.

Great Beachfront House!

We had a fantastic beach trip. You can see the sun rise from the front deck and the sun set from the back upper deck. The front deck is new. The back upper deck - not so much. But still a great place to watch the ocean! The backyard is pretty enclosed, so you can keep track on the kids. We kept the washer & dryer working full time because of wet walks on the beach that always involved going into the ocean! The maintainence crew was quick to fix some slow drains.

The location of this sweet and rustic cabin is phenomenal if you are looking for a quiet getaway on a less touristy and gorgeous beach.

The cabin was very clean however a few touches would have made it perfect. For example, a reading lamp in the master bedroom and a tea kettle would have been nice.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for your review and we will pass along your recommendations to the owners regarding the tea kettle and reading lamp. Sunset Vacation Rentals looks forward to helping you plan your next stay at the beach.

The house was located in a quiet neighborhood with a private path straight down to the beach. It was comfortable and clean. It was outfitted well for cooking for a large group. This was the best house I've stayed in, though not the most "modern".

Please love me a little more!!

This house has tons of character and is a charming older home. It was very pet-friendly and we appreciated the furniture covers. The view from the upper deck on the beach side is great and the new deck surface on the street side is fantastic. The big yard is really nice for kids and pets.
However, there are several things that really need some TLC before I could recommend this house to friends or return myself.
1. From a safety standpoint, the electrical outlets are old and whatever plug you are trying to use will probably fall out. One of the lights in the kitchen needs to be clicked on at least twice to come on at all.
2. The upper deck on the beach side desperately needs a new surface and at least on of the rails is not attached at all on the bottom (a child or pet could easily fall off).
3. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, etc., but the toaster hardly worked at all and the stovetop burners were not working.
4. The main floor bathroom and bedroom were infested with sugar ants. The west wall of the bedroom was covered in cobwebs and the south wall, carpet and ceiling above had obviously had a nasty water leak. The shower floor was slippery and the shower curtain was interestingly hung. The shower head was on of the best I have ever used ! The jacuzzi tub in the upstairs bathroom didnt seem to work.
5. The path to the beach was very useable until the very bottom where there was a very difficult, long step down. Some of our party could not use that access and had to find a more user friendly one.
In its present condition we would not return to this house. If these issues were addressed we would definitely come back.
We had 9 people in our party and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and be comfortable.

Was good over all, but shower up stairs water temperature would change during a shower if hot or cold water was turned on at another location. Trash pick up should happen sometime during a 5 day stay or a additional dumpster should be added. (with twelve people in the rental the dumpster filled up in three days.

We wanted to have a special weekend to celebrate Mother's Day. My wife likes to go to the beach so we rented one of your facilities. The whole family gathered and made a memorable weekend. The house was great and being able to walk a short distance to the beech was awesome. All in all it was super.

older home, decent condition. beds were comfy. location was good. would be pretty tight fit for 12 people. we had 8, that was plenty for the house. had to build stairs to the beach(shovel on the property would be nice). looks like access gets washed away at times during high water. loved the beach. all in all great vacation. would stay again.

We all loved the charm and character of this old, well built home. The location, the private backyard with the magical path leading to the ocean was such a delight. The property managers were super nice and helpful. The kitchen was so well stocked, along with having a w&d was great. We absolutely loved it except for the couches which really should be replaced and two pillows that were terrible. I hope this house so unique never gets destroyed, it is a treasure .cant wait to come again.thank you so very much for sharing !!!

Beach house is old, maybe 50-70 years old. It has a large, mowed backyard with the shrubs beyond it cut low so visibility of the ocean is great. Easy access to the beach down a path from the backyard. House has nice layout but everything is rustic. Appliances work great except some of the old-fashioned stove burners didn't work, amenities are plentiful in the kitchen, windows and door to upper deck open and close with difficulty. Very large dining table easily seats six, but takes up a lot of kitchen space. Furniture is comfortable but aged with a large tear. Lots of games, small stereo sound system, and a piano. Was not as clean as we like, but okay. House is as described and was great for our needs. We will go back next year. Dealt with rental agency all by email, and lock box was on the front door so we didn't have to pick up keys. We had no problems while we were there.

Manager's Response

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us at McKinnon's Beach House. We will have the burners looked at and repaired and let the owner know about the window/doors. Sunset Vacation Rentals looks forward to helping you plan your next vacation here at the beach.

Our vacation in Rockaway was fabulous. The location of this beach house was perfect with great access to the beach and walking distance to downtown. There were a few things that could be improved upon so I am happy to have the opportunity to mention them at this time.
The hot tub is merely a jacuzzi bath tub and should be marketed as such. The beds were not in good shape and the toilet seat was broken in the upstairs bathroom. It is a funky place but we do like funky and it did make for a great holiday family vacation. thank you

This house is older but we loved the old Ness perfect deck to be able to enjoy more people stop in for an hour during family reunion and not have inside, plenty of kitchen utensils and dishes to prepare food.great location near beach access for older people to get to beach! We really enjoyed our stay, sunset rentals were great to work with!

House was clean which was appreciated and well stocked with towels, sheets etc. for an older home it is well maintained. Appliances are older but sufficient. Close to the beach however end of path down to sand was washed out,steep, and we had to climb on hands and knees up and down path. Also path itself not maintained, over grown with spiked plants. Had cuts on legs from walking through. Not pleasant. Other big issue was both showers had very slow drains which meant standing in 2-3 inches of dirty water while bathing. We only had six people cannot imagine how gross it would have been with more. Tried washing the basins out but such slow drains stuff wouldn't go down. Unfortunately a lot of sand in hair etc even after wiping off before going in house. Ends up in tub. Owners would be smart to put in a simple outside shower to hose off after going to the beach. Would save their plumbing. We would not rent again unless problems above were fixed, which is a shame because it was otherwise decent.

From the moment we entered the house we all felt at home. comfortable and surrounded be the beauty of the Oregon coast/beach! The short hike from the lovely back yard to the beach itself was fun. The beds were all very comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked although we had a bit of trouble with the coffee pot. Overall we could not have had a better experience! The kids had almost as much fun playing the piano as they did on the beach!

My sister and myself stayed 5 nights, this home was perfect for us. Kinda eleclectic, funky layout of the house but that made it all the more fun. Plenty of room, beautiful views of the ocean, private large back yard with private path to the beach. Large rooms allow plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the quiet or social activities. NOT for folks with difficulty walking or stairs, and it's not a "5-star new" building - but that's not what we were looking for. It's a quiet, private cabin-feeling home with all the amenities and worked great for the 2 of us or would be ideal for large family get togethers. Thanks for a wonderful time!

Our group has had 6 trips to this house over NYE and sometimes the superbowl weekend. The house location is amazing. Just a quick and private trail to the beach. Very few people on the beach most of the time. The house is older and by no means "fancy". It is an older beach house that could use some updating in the bathrooms and kitchen. But, for the most part everything works. The kitchen supplies are OK but if you need anything special to cook with or good knives I would suggest you bring them. Overall, we always enjoy the location, the Rockaway beach town and the amazing beach. They do allow dogs and that is great for us because we enjoy bringing our furry families with us. We will always look forward to coming back to McKinnon house.

- House is not without its charms, but is considerably more weather-beaten than when the photos were taken.
- WiFi password is incorrect on pdf; it ends with '967'.
- Rear porch light didn't work.
- One of the electrical outlets (by downstairs bedroom door) didn't work & others are worn out (plugs fall out). They're also mostly the (really) old style non'grounded outlets.
- Kitchen was pretty well equipped.
- Big kitchen table was nice; seated 8 + a baby easily.

We enjoyed our stay at the McKinnon's Beach house. Had a bunch of family and 2 dogs. Overall clean, well stocked. Note: The one main level bedroom has 2 double beds and a double futon. The remaining 3 bedrooms upstairs have 2 with king size beds, and one with 2 twin beds. The televisions are in the main level bedroom and one bedroom upstairs. It was not possible to watch TV in the living room, which was not good for a few of our family members & children. Having to wash linens and towels before an 11 AM check out was very challenging, so the management company said to do what we could. We would certainly stay again, as it accommodated the whole family and allows pets. Location was GREAT!

Love this house! Love the location to the beach! Also love the privacy of the house! However, the house needs some things. Kitchen ware that is updated is very needed. Sharp and good knife set, cutting board and good set of pots. It can be a bit frustrating to make a big meal here. The bedrooms all have nice beds except for one upstairs ocean view room. It needs to be updated desperately! The two small beds are extremely uncomfortable and bedding is just plain bad. We have to draw straws each year to see who gets stuck with this room. We always enjoy ourselves and will continue to go back. However it would be nice to some of these upgrades done for the next stay.

Our Family of 12 (Grandparents, sisters, husbands and kids) stayed here in July for 7 nights. We loved the location, and the house was great. It is very rustic so don't expect granite counters and white walls. We had read some reviews where people complained about the table being sticky so we threw in a table cloth, problem solved. The only items worth mention was the upstairs bathtub could have used a good bleaching and there really isn't enough seating in the family room for all 12 of us but we spent most of time on the beach anyway. They don't have a fire pit outside so we built fires on the beach and we brought a folding table so we could eat and play games outside. We had a wonderful week in a house that was a great value for the location, the number of people it could sleep and the ability for us to bring our pets.

This was a very comfortable house to stay in, with lots of space and a huge yard to play in. It feels secluded, yet is only about a mile from the stores in town. The beach access is the easiest we've ever had in several years of renting beach houses - just right through the bushes beyond the backyard to the sand. The beach itself is sandy for miles; if you want tide pools, you can travel south a few miles. We did wish for a few more blankets for the beds/futon, but on the whole we really enjoyed this house.

Alot of positives, 3 bedrooms upstairs, one downstairs, large table in the kitchen and roomy living room with large fire place. Great for a large group (8-10). Great back porch and back yard with private path to e beach. The house is rustic and smelled a little old and musty on arrival. We left the front and back doors open for a couple of hours to let it air out, as there was only one window on the lower level that could be opened.

Property seems to be in need of some repair. Both decks seem a bit soft in spots. Bathtub drain ,drains very slow. No screen on the windows so flys are in the house when you want to get air flow. Pathway to the beach needs some work. Dryer breaker

Thank you :)

For the last ten years or so, our family has gathered on the Oregon Coast at Thanksgiving. Our favorite place to meet is the McKinnon House. We love the fireplace where we wrapped potatoes in foil the first night we arrived there in 2001; there had been a violent storm flooding highways and disrupting power. But the fireplace worked fine, and by the time the lights came on, we were eating our baked potatoes, telling stories and just being happy to have made it through the storm. When we found the secret trail the next morning, through the woods to the beach, we knew we had chosen the perfect spot. We've added four members to our family since then, but the house still works fine. (We hope the rent will stay affordable. We'd like to come back for another ten years.)

This house is good for a larger family group and beach access is easy. I especially enjoy the large backyard and porch.

WE enjoyed our 4th of July in the Mckinnons Beach house. This was largely due to the amazing comfortable vacation rental! The walk to the beach was easily maneuvered by the children and my pregnant daughter in law. The Fireworks on the beach were amazing. And the Jacuzzi tub was a great way to end the day! Thank you...we will be using you again.

We really enjoyed our stay and appreciate the hospitality. The kids had a blast being so close to the beach and roasting marshmellows in the fireplace.
