About

ROCKAWAY BEACH – Nehalem Nirvana is a house that has stunning views. It sits on an estuary, looking out over the ocean, the jaws of the Nehalem River, and across Nehalem Bay to Neahkahnie Mountain. Watch gorgeous sunsets over the water from just about everywhere in the house. You can even watch the Sea Lions play on the beach across the bay.

Located next to the Jetty Fishery, for your crabbing and fishing gear, boat ramp, and fresh crab and shellfish are footsteps away. The house is comfortably furnished, with a spacious kitchen with stainless steel counters. It is set up to work equally well for a family gathering or a bunch of coastal fishermen. NEW wood floors throughout the living area installed 11/2021.

A master bedroom with Queen bed (NEW carpet-11/2021) and a magnificent OCEAN AND BAY VIEW; second bedroom with Queen bed(NEW carpet 11/2021); the "Bunkhouse"(NEW carpet 11/2021) with one double bed and two pyramid bunk beds (double on the bottom, twin on the top) and a TV with DVD player to keep the kids occupied; a spacious and comfortable living room, with TV/DVD/VCR; a kitchen/dining area, and a more formal dining room. Sit and read your book in the tiled sunroom with a couch that converts into a day bed. There is even a SAUNA to enjoy and relax in after a long day of being out on the boat.

The outdoor spaces at this home are so full of beauty. Walk down the stairs to the private beach that changes with the tide. Tide pools can be explored at low tide, you can watch the boats pass by and even see the bald eagles flying around the estuary. Or just relax in the sun on the two decks. Enjoy romantic nights in the HOT TUB with the sky full of stars or just for soaking those tired muscles. With a gas BBQ and lots of outdoor seating this will be the place your family wants to come back to again and again. And best of all it is pet friendly!

Lovely views of tidal Nehalem River, and a lagoon with interesting wildlife including river otters, herons, terns and more.
Outdoor dining table provided place for sheltered spring (sunny but chilly) picnic dinners.
The open floor plan enabled participation in jamming while doing meal prep in the well equipped kitchen. There were no sharp knives, but we brought some. Hot tub was super clean and great.
The main drawback is that you have to drive to take a walk. The RV marina next door does not allow strolling on their property. That said, favorite hikes in the area are 15-20 minutes north and the jetty beach is 5 minutes south.
We were five adults, were very comfortable, found the house flexible for our needs, and loved our stay.

Home was comfortable, lots of room, comfortable bed, and beautiful view. Needs to update bathrooms. Wish there was a better way to get keys.

Manager's Response

Thank you for staying at Nehalem Nirvana and taking your time to review the home! We are glad you enjoyed your stay there! The owner has made several updates, including remodeling the bathrooms!
We also now provide lockboxes for our Rockaway guests so they no longer need to come to our office to pick up keys! We hope you can come back for a future stay!

The rental company made everything easy. Property was clean and offered lots of moments for entertainment i.e. hot tub, beach access, and location relevant to other nearby beach towns. Really had a fun and memorable trip and AM considering staying again.

Stayed here with our family and another family in our pod and had a lovely time. The house is large enough to accommodate 2 families easily. The beds were super comfortable, the house was very quite and we enjoyed renting kayaks at Wheeler marina (we saw a bald eagle), hot tubing, cooking, watching movies and puzzling. Even the CD's they had were the perfect music for our trip. We would definitely stay here again.

Great view!

The view and the hot tub and sauna were so nice to enjoy! The deck and the sun room allowed us to enjoy the view inside and outside. The interior is dated and the carpet could use a deep clean or the use of a newer vacuum cleaner. We ended up not bringing dogs but still found long black dog hair on the carpet. The entire house needed a deep dusting. There were lots of spiderwebs and dust everywhere, which was hard on my allergies. The heater vents also seemed like they could use a deep clean, replacing the filter since my dust allergies seemed to kick up when the heater was on.

We first landed on choosing this place with unbridled enthusiasm. We were taking a trip with our pod to a place on the beach with a hot tub and sauna. There was even a telescope in the pictures that would be perfect to see the great conjunction if we had a clear night. So many sofas to lounge and read on, a crab and oyster place within walking distance!!! We couldn't believe it, too good to be true. And it was! There was a nailed sign on the sauna that prohibited use and there was no telescope:(. Those bits were disappointing especially because they were advertised enthusiastically. It felt deceptive and our first few minutes in the house were tinged with a feeling of disappointment. However, the house was clean and spacious and we were able to relax and refresh. A lovely stay overall but I had to mention what felt off about the place.

The house was very clean and comfortable - great spacious kitchen and we enjoyed cooking meals. The backside of the house looks out over the bay and is very peaceful. The front though is steps away from the highway and railroad tracks, and a train did come through while we were there, which was a little strange. We brought our dog, and the property is advertised as “dog friendly,” but being on the highway and no fenced yard made it a little challenging. Overall though the property is great. It’s located by Nehalem and Manzanita, both great towns with lots of shopping and restaurants, and there is ample hiking, crabbing and other outdoor activities nearby.

Nicely furnished home overlooking the estuary. Bring specialty cooking ware but all the basics are here. Nicely laid out home with lots of outdoor seating to enjoy the view. The internet didn't work, but the rental folks responded quickly and attempted to fix problem.( I would chalk internet issues up to the fact that it was Centurylink, a provider, known to be variable in service quality). It was possible to hot spot off my AT&T mobile service so the business part of the trip still happened. High end appliances through out home, good heating system and windows for cross ventilation. We were able to relax and enjoy seeing family that we hadn't seen for months.
Bring your own games as there are limited options for adult and children. There was a good cable TV connection and my son in law was pleasantly surprised to find he could watch a Ranger's game because owner had football package. I thoroughly appreciated the peacefulness of the Oriental themed bedroom with it's Nectar mattress, silk wall quilt and writing table under the window,and the windows being on back walls with the privacy of not needing shades down during a Blue Moon weekend. Waking up to the full moon over the estuary reflecting the Blue Heron in the tidal pool was sublime.
Property fronts Hwy 101 and was quieter that I had anticipated, though in summertime it might get more road noise. The scenic railroad also passes between house and hwy however it was closed for the winter, so no traffic there either.

We had been traveling for 12 hours and in was an inconvenience to go almost 10 miles beyond our destination to get keys and then backtrack yo the home. Then, we get there and the majority of the exterior is covered in spider webs with dead flies, etc in them. It was disappointing to say the least, especially when the cleaning fees are do high. The property was very quiet and peaceful, though.

Our family had a fabulous time during our stay at Nehalem Nirvana! From catching crabs in the tide pool in the “back yard”, taking a boat out crabbing (with great success!!!!) with Jetty Marina next door, who are SO kind and helpful, relaxing in the clean hot tub and sauna after the chilly day out on the water, walking out to the beach on the jetty, to falling into the comfy beds at night... we were so blessed with this awesome home away from home. The property is very well cared for and just beautiful, with fresh flowers blooming all around, framing your view of the water. We loved the open floor plan to stretch out and read and play games in the evening, and they even have a large variety of books for your perusal! This was a wonderful place, perfect for our needs, and we would gladly come back!

I rented the house with 4 friends to have the time and space to relax and reconnect with one another- and this house was the perfect space to support that. The kitchen is laid out well, and spacious enough to allow people to prepare food together. The adjacent dining room is brightly and comfortable.

The living room has wonderfully comfortable furniture, encouraging relaxation and long conversation. There is a television, but we were so enjoying the conversation we never turned it on.

The master bedroom and living room offer great views of the bay, and we watched birds out the window for much of the day. We were treated to a visitation from a Blue Heron who hung out in the tree by the deck for a couple of hours one afternoon!

The hot tub was really the icing on the cake. Soaking out tension while taking in the view of the bay, accompanied by the sound of the birds in the close by trees, was idyllic.

The only room for improvement would be doing a deep clean of the deck and outside wooden furniture- they are being taken over by lichen, and we didn't use the wooden chairs

The management staff at Sunset Vacation Rentals were awesome! When a member of the party awoke quite ill the day we were to leave, worked with us to allow a slightly later departure.

Manager's Response

We are so glad you enjoyed the amazing views from the Nehalem Nirvana. We will let the owner know that it's time for some deck and outside updates. Sunset Vacation Rentals looks forward to helping you plan your next stay at the beach.

We all loved the house and especially the view . Had trouble with tv but was sent out a technician the following day. The only big problem is that not one girl out of 10 had a good night sleep all the beds are super uncomfortable. Differently need to be upgraded. We would come back if that was improved. Thank you

Manager's Response

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay but are sorry to hear that the mattresses were a problem. We will forward this information to the owner. Sunset Vacation Rentals looks forward to helping you plan your next vacation at the beach.

I booked this house last minute two days before New Year's Eve and they were only three rentals left available with a hot tub and three bedrooms for New Year's Eve weekend so I chose this one. And boy am I glad I did it was awesome! We had three couples and two dogs and this house was the perfect setup with beautiful views of the Nehalem River and ocean. The layout was great with two bedrooms and bathroom on one side of the house and another big bedroom and bathroom on the other side of the house so you had a little separation, there is a nice big living room with lots of chairs and couches and huge windows that looked out on the yard, River and ocean. It was very clean and the Furnishings are very comfy. It has a nice big yard so if you have a dog there's room for them to run around and a great hot tub that would fit five or six people we sat in the hot tub every morning and evening watching the sunrise and sunset. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need in duplicate and triplicate & lots of condiments. It said parking for three cars but we brought 4 & were able to fit them in the driveway. The house is right by the jetty fishery so you can walk over there and get some delicious crabs for dinner like we did New Year's Eve. There is a 6-person table off the kitchen and then there's a more formal dining table for 6 people off the living room. There were plenty of outdoor chairs to sit in along with a table and chairs on the deck. All three couples have decided this is definitely our favorite Beach Rentals so far and we will be coming back!

Although we had to drive to the beach, this house was still in a great location because of the pier next door. We didn't know about it but accidentally found out that we could crab for dungeoness at the dock. It was so fun and we actually got a lot of crab. We also liked the fact that the house was all by itself so we didn't have neighbors right on top of us. Everything in the house was great and we had a really good time. I would definitely recommend this place if you like to fish and crab

Manager's Response

We are so glad you were able to take advantage of the great location of the Nehalem Nirvana and catch some crab. Being next to the Jetty is the perfect location for those who love to fish. And the view from there is spectacular. Sunset Vacation Rentals would love to help you plan your next trip to the beach.

The house was neat and tidy, except for the floors. There was a lot of pet hair, even though we didn't bring a pet. My daughter's legs also turned black from crawling around. I vacuumed the floors whe we arrived and that helped. Other than that, we enjoyed the house. The views from the back deck were amazing and our kids had a blast playing in the tide pool behind the house. We would stay here again, hoping that the floors would have had a deep cleaning.

We are so very sorry that you found the house cleaning not to your standards. We will rectify that asap. We hope you will come back to the Nehalem Nirvana again. Sunset Vacation rentals would love to help you plan your next trip to the beach.

There wer not enoUgh beds for 11 adult women in their 60s and 70s, as we do not double up in bunk beds the way children can do. I found your "sleeps 12" claim misleading.

Walking out to the beach along the jetty was popular, and soaking in the hot tub in the evening. We were lucky to have clear, warm, sunny weather for our stay so the stars were amazing. It's private and the neighbors campy at the jetty were quiet and respectful. Would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful vacation at Nehalem Nirvana, The staff was great it was wonderful to find such a nice place we could go to with our dogs. There was a small issue with the hot tub but when we called, you guys were out to fix it within the hour and were friendly pleasant, quick and knowledgable about the property and the area. I can't really say enough about how much we loved the property,it probably was the best stocked kitchen/house of any vacation rental I have ever stayed in. We loved the house. Loved how secluded it felt. Loved the special you were running. If I had to give any negatives, of which there were almost non, I would say it is very close to the railroad tracks, but you can't change that. It has such a beautiful back yard and so big, but the fishery next door doesn't want any off leash dogs over there, so it would be nice if there was a fully fenced in yard so they could be off leash and not have to worry about them wandering down to the campground. and last it would be great if the spring/summer rates were the same as the winter. I would love to come stay again this summer, but I am hoping we can make this place a regular destination for our family. Thanks again!

We loved our stay at Nehalem Nirvana (group of 9 adults). It was a beautiful location - we felt secluded yet close to a lot of amenities. Our group loved being able to go crab fishing next door. The hot tub was a perfect addition to a charming property. We had an issue with it the first night and the property management company sent out a mechanic promptly the next day to fix it (it was only a tripped breaker on a separate panel we couldn't find). The house itself is adorable. Comfortable beds, lovely layout. The next time we're on the Coast we hope to come back. A+++
My only recommendation would be to make sure you bring kitchen supplies as theirs are limited - no paper towel, plastic wraps, containers, etc (which is mentioned in the listing).

Would have been nice if the cable was available on another Tv and not just in living room. Not close to beach. To walk to get to the beach required scaling a rock wall to get up on the jetty and then climbing over huge pieces of driftwood, rocks, holes, etc. Couldn't hear any beach sound from the property. That being said, short drive to beach and stores, great working hot tub and gas BBQ. House set up was great for putting puzzles together and playing games. Taking day trips to tillamook cheese factory, antiquing, Seaside and even to get to the beach. Walking to the jetty fishery and renting crab rings/boat for a few hours was nice.

Nehalem Nirvana is perfect for folks looking for a nice but welcoming place with character. The decorations are both interesting and cute! Crab is a theme :) It has everything you need (though a few more pyrex type baking dishes would be awesome!) for a relaxing and comfortable stay. They even had a plastic gingham tablecloth for when we had a crab feast. The area around the house is great-you can explore the beach, buy some delicious crab, and hang out in the hot tub. Our group of friends had a lovely weekend grilling, cooking up seafood, playing games (which are well stocked), and hitting the beach in the surrounding area. They only provide a certain amount of cleaning supplies so be sure and bring some. Other than that no issues whatsoever. All in all, a great rental!!

As usual, the service from Sunset Vacation Rentals was responsive and professional (thanks Julie!), and booking was easy. The new wi-fi and other upgrades to the property are much appreciated.

Only problem we had was the lack of any tv stations. When we arrived we had one station so we notified management. They were very prompt in arriving, but unfortunately after their "fix" we didn't even have one station! We didn't bother to notify them again, as we didn't stay to watch television anyway.

We had a wonderful time here enjoying the hot tub and the sauna overlooking the bay and ocean. The Jetty Fishery next door is a huge plus! The crabbing was fun! We had four teen/young adults and my Mom with us and we all stayed comfortably. The property managers took care of the issues we had with the baseboard heater, the water heater and the sugar ants right away. Even with these little things (things that are typical in any home), our stay was wonderful! We enjoyed grilling and relaxing on the deck, and watching beautiful sunsets. The decor is unique and interesting. The furniture in the living room is super comfortable. The only down side I saw was the TV in the living room is just right off the thin doors leading into the master bedroom. I couldn't get away in there for quiet while others were watching TV. No big deal though, I just went out on the deck and enjoyed some quiet time.

I stayed at a property through this company before a couple years ago and had a blast so thought of them right away. Some friends and I went in on a weekend at this property for my birthday and had an amazing time. The house was roomy and comfortable and the sauna was a nice treat. The decor was interesting and the views were to die for. The staff at Sunset Vacation Rentals were friendly and professional as usual. My only gripe is that the hot tub was at 60 degrees when we arrived and the ph levels were all out of whack but Sunset extended our stay for the trouble and it was heaven to not have to rush out Sunday morning. I will DEFINITELY be staying at one of their properties again!

We loved this comfortable house for a tranquil, lovely and secluded getaway. It was perfect for us. The only problem was the Internet connection--it kept disconnecting every 5 - 15 minutes. This is fine if you want to check your email every once in a while, but not good if you're on a working vacation and really NEED to have uninterrupted wifi in order to do business and get work done. Other than that, this place was perfect and we would definitely go back. We especially enjoyed the wild life viewing, the hot tub, and the fishery next door where we bought some delicious crab. Also, the folks at SSVR were very professional and quick to respond to any issues or problems we had with the house--they were great to work with.

What a wonder place to relax! Great view of the Ocean and the river mouth. The changes in the tide could also be viewed from inside the house. The kitchen area is huge and well supplied with utensils, cork screws, crab crackers, etc. We were able to get crabs and clams freshly cooked next door at the Jetty Fisheries. The teenage girls loved the hot tub and sauna. The rest of us walked the jetty out to the ocean. Weather during our stay was gorgeous! Several were sad to find that the internet sevice did not work. Several other items needed repairs, but nothing really effected the beatiful time we had as a family enjoying a very memorable weekend together. Thanks!

We came from all parts of Oregon and beyond for 5 days at Nehalem Nirvana and couldn't have asked for a better place for beach play, cooking together, game playing, sunset watching, star gazing from the hot tub. The house made us feel instantly at home.
We loved the eclectic art around the house! Only snafu-the directions for the VCR were challenging so we opted for the TV in the bunkhouse. We hope to return next summer!!

Nehalem Nirvana is a tastefully decorated house with rich history in the most beautiful, restful setting and was the perfect place for our family to have a reunion and celebrate a 60th birthday. It is very well stocked with blankets, games, books, and
everything you could think of to have a comfortable retreat. The kitchen was beautifully stocked with cookware and serving pieces to entertain! Thank you for sharing your wonderful house with our family and Nehalem Nirvana is on our "return" list for retreat
destinations.

We had a great family visit at the Nirvana Beach House. Everything met our expectations. It was a relaxing and enjoyable stay. My wife was very impressed with the fresh cut flowers from the garden that greeted us. We will plan on coming back in the future.

Great house, very responsive management!

We loved the house. The property, the views, the hot tub, the grill--all great! You have to walk a bit to get to a classic "beach," but if you want to catch some crabs or clams it's a good place to be. The house is very private and nice, close ride to Rockaway Beach for restaurants and antiquing.
We had a couple problems--connecting to wifi and the cleaning crew showed up 4 hours before they were supposed to, but both of these issues were quickly resolved with a call to the vacation rental company.
All in all a great weekend!

We adored our time here. Perfect for kids with the estuary, close by ocean, and Jetty. The Fishery is next door so we had fresh crab and boating close by, but no other neighbors allowing us privacy and freedom. The master bedroom's picture window is inspiring and
romantic. The living area is wide open and perfect for entertaining. The amenities are outstanding: sauna, hot tub, kitchen appliances galore (espresso maker, rice cooker, blender, etc) very intutively selected, and tastefully creative modern decor. Love it's proximity to wheeler, nehalem, manzanita, and Rockaway. Will definitely stay here again and again!

We had a great time. Even though we weren't on a huge expanse of beach we loved the location. It was very private and quiet, which is exactly what we were looking for. We really enjoyed exploring at low tide.

We had 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids) stay for an extended weekend. The amount of space was perfect. The kids loved their spacious room with the 2 sets of bunkbeds and another area with a bed and tv for them to play video games. The master bedroom had plenty of room and a great view of the bay/ocean. We loved sitting out on the deck, although not huge, it had enough seating and the view was spectacular at night when the sun sets. Of course the hot tub was the best part. Even though there is a small campground next to the is far enough away that it seemed like we were secluded from any neighbors. The only part that was hard if you have small kids and a dog(s) is that there is no fenced in yard, yet it is very large. You are up on a hill though from the bay and there is a small inlet, so there isn't a fast moving river at the front of the property, which made us not worry as much in regards to the kids safety. The one part I missed was being able to walk in a neighborhood with the kids and dogs. It is right next to HWY 101, but it was fine because we couldn't hear the traffic.

WE enloyed our stay at Nehalem Nirvana!!! The kitchen was a joy to work in, plenty of room to entertain and cook, with others milling around you. The view was spectacular. We watched our group crab from the comforts of a warm house, with the use of the telescope. AWESOME!! FABULOUS TIME.

Great house with fantastic views. If you like to crab, it is right next door to the jetty fishery. Beds could have been a bit more comfortable, but it is rental... can't have it all right?
Would consider renting this house again for a weekend away with friends or family.

Great place to stay if you want to crab. The view is fabulous. I've been to that area for years and was not aware there was a little cove to walk down to.

What a wonderful place! Our kids had a blast playing on the beach and watching the tides roll in and out. The hot tub is wonderful, a great day to start or end the day. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a wonderful thanksgiving dinner! We will be back.

When my group of friends and I get together to celebrate special occasions, we most often end up at the Oregon coast. This house was by far our favorite. The location was amazing, the house itself incredibly tastefully decorated, and it was very private. From the pictures and proximity to the train tracks, we felt like we were taking somewhat of a leap of faith...and oh was it worth it. We will all be returning to this house most surely.

There was no phone connected to the rental, which was advertised in the rental brochure online and at the house itself. Internet access was also advertised, but found out when I got there that it was through the neighbor and needed to pay extra. Internet access was very weak and I needed to be outside to get reception.

Otherwise, stay was wonderful!

We had an awesome time.
Nehalem Nirvana was perfect for our group. In fact everyone wants to make it an annual event now.

I was the first to arrive and I had to contact SVR because I had left the paperwork with the lock box code at the office ( I thought I had grabbed the right paperwork ) one phone call to SVR and the gal had me in the house in just a couple of minutes - I wish I could remember her name, I do know she was staffing the phone after hours. She was a huge help.

When I entered the house it was in perfect shape The house and location was perfect for our group.

The only hiccup we had was on Saturday night when we were barbecuing cedar plank salmon ( freshly caught I might add !! ) we ran out of propane for the barbecue, fortunately I happened to have a bottle in my truck and we had it up and running again in just a few minutes. I would suggest a spare somewhere on premises so if it happens to someone else it doesn't ruin their dinner plans.

But I can't say enough about our trip - we had a wonderful time
We will be booking again for next year

We had a fantastic week end! Thanks again. I would like to make you aware of a possible issue at the home. I am a oregon home and pest control inspector (OCHI # 818) and I noted that there are carpenter ants inside the home. This indicates several things. One, there are conducive conditions, i.e. moisture is entering the house somewhere
and two, there is likely a carpenter ant nest inside the home.
I recommend you contact a local pest control company for a pest inspection and treatment.
Just thought you would like to know.

Had a very nice time at this house. Loved hotubbing in the poring rain! The jetty next door is a treat and the local folks were very nice and helpful. We decided to stay another night we had such a good time and it was really easy to work with the management of the house. Overall it was fantastic! Thank you again!
