It was a great property with all the amenities one could need. The bed was very comfortable. We were a little bummed the view was partially blocked. Nice to have easy beach access.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The place was immaculate and the furnishings were wonderful. Beach access is very convenient from the townhome. Overall, I would definitely be interested in staying there again.- Anonymous U , Posted: 01/24/2021
Exceptional extended weekend stay - unit was perfect with barbecue, access to beach, both bedrooms were nice. Only slight need was wishing that TV's had regular cable availability. The property manager was on top of her game with assistance before, during and after our visit. Definitely would consider returning for a beach visit. Beach is beautiful - wished more sea shells, agates and other items could be found on beach.

Was able to book last minute, easy process, the place was super comfy, except the bed was springy but everything else was amazing. It's right on the beach, easy walking distance to restaurants. I really liked the ease of booking, check-in and checkout and I like the link they sent prior to checking with an abundant amount of info, like places to eat, this to do, things about the house, tide schedules, just good info

We arrived to an exceptionally clean and well furnished condo. Directions and instructions for getting inside were very clear. Cozy place and look forward to returning!- Anonymous U , Posted: 10/23/2020
It's right up against the beach, central to downtown and it's very cozy and comfortable. Were there imperfections? Yes, a handful of them, but they didn't outweigh all the wonderful things by any means. Enjoy :)- Shawn and Robin M from Boise, Posted: 09/23/2020
Perfect Location and Lovely Townhome
The location of this townhome is perfect. We walked on the beach a few times a day. The views are gorgeous. The townhome is clean and has everything we needed. Love the 3 levels, it was just right for our family of 4. Super easy to book with Starfish Vacation rentals and we will definitely look at your properties in the future. Thank you.- Annie H from Bellevue, WA, Posted: 08/11/2020
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!- Kelley W , Posted: 05/31/2018
Overall, our experience at the Starfish rental was very good. The only issue was with the internet. It only worked on the last evening we were there. Someone from the management company had to come into the unit and spent over an hour there trouble shooting. The internet connection has a history of unreliability.- Sue T , Posted: 04/21/2018
Property was beautifully decorated and spotless with two exceptions, dried urine on toilet seat (male?) in the bathroom off the kitchen and a dirty spatula with dried food on it in a kitchen drawer. If you’re comfortable being a solid 30 minute drive from Cannon Beach and looking for quiet, this is a great place. The view is spectacular.- Megan K , Posted: 03/28/2018
The view and beach access alone are enough to stay again. Very clean home, comfortable furniture and fun games/puzzles provided. Although Rockaway isn't a "tourist" place with tons of shops or great restaurants, it's a quick drive up the coast to Cannon Beach. I wouldn't recommend this exact rental if you have small kids.. The 3 flights of stairs would probably put a damper on your stay, unless you're used to it.- Jennifer T , Posted: 03/20/2018
Very nice condo, comfortable, clean and quiet. Kitchen was well stocked. Fabulous view and easy beach access!- Katy M , Posted: 03/05/2018
Very clean and well appointed townhome in Rockaway Beach OR. Plenty of blankets, pillows and all kitchen items. We stayed here in January and were plenty warm. The sound of the Pacific Ocean waves at your footsteps sent up into a deep and restful sleep. Gas fireplaces to cozy up to. Drip coffee maker and plenty of kitchen items to make a seaside breakfast.- Stephen M , Posted: 02/05/2018
Couldn't be better!
We loved ourt stay at the Gilkefeller. Panoramic view, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, electric fireplace, comfortable deck. It was great! The reservation people were easy to work with and friendly and met all our needs.- ADELE G , Posted: 02/01/2018
Our stay at TheGilkefeller
Our stay in Rockaway was really nice. Great location, right on the beach. Angela from Starfish rental was very helpful. Gave us great suggestions of places to dine and shop. Don’t miss eating at the Offshore Grill! Excellent! Hide Review- Holly F , Posted: 02/18/2020
Most Amazing Vacation Ever
The condo was simply amazing! The decor and location made this place truly amazing. To wake up every morning to the sound of the waves and walk outside the back door for a stroll on the beach was magical. I don’t believe I have ever been more relaxed on a vacation. I am ready to plan for next year’s trip to Rockaway Beach!- Evelyn B , Posted: 01/01/2020
We enjoyed a quiet, relaxing stay at the Gilkefeller for Christmas. Everything was clean and nice. There was some construction going on across the street but it wasn't a bother and thankfully, we still had a beautiful view of the ocean. Would definitely stay here again!- Dana D , Posted: 12/28/2019
Totally loved the place !!! Even nice homeowners next door !!!
Came and went easily by car and on foot. Very friendly townspeople. Great view to the left with construction obstruction to the right (move the furniture). Very clean !!! Lots of amenities for cooking and entertaining. Games, books, uninteresting movies, two separate spaces for leisure. The stairs worked our legs ! Loved it totally !!!- Leo H , Posted: 10/13/2019
A great getaway
The only downside was the building being constructed creating a good deal of noise during the day and blocking half the view. They seemed to stop construction on the weekend though. Otherwise the house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. A great location, walkable to most things except a grocery store. The market across the street had some things though. All in all a great stay, would go again.- Joshua C , Posted: 08/01/2019
We had the best time, it was so quiet and peaceful and we absolutely LOVED this condo! Everything was in walking distance and it was PERFECT!- Diana J , Posted: 05/22/2019
This property was everything that we could have hoped for. Very close to the beach. Great views....and close to little shops and food.- Mary W , Posted: 05/14/2019
We had a great time. The house was very nice just steps to the beach. Cute town. Would definitely recommend. My only criticism would be the master bathroom had a mildew smell and the towels also smelled- Sarah S , Posted: 04/22/2019
Laid back and relaxing
Staying at the Gilkefeller was so relaxing and laid back. The house was perfectly set up. Everything we needed was there. The view was perfect as well. We will be back. There was several things to do close by too. We went hiking at Munson falls, just a short drive south. Walking on the beach was really enjoyable.- Leah O , Posted: 03/26/2019
Clean, great location. The Management was great and we didn't need anything except food to cook, personal items :) Will certainly go back. The view was fantastic and relaxing- Dee W , Posted: 03/24/2019
If you've never hit the OR coast in winter, you owe yourself the favor. Walk the beaches nestled under a wool cap then cozy up next to a fire. And if you stay at this specific location, at bedtime you are cocooned in luxurious down so warm you can crack the balcony door and listen to the ocean as you drift off to sleep. The property manager was so nice to check on us via text, to see if all was well. ONLY thing I lacked was a good kitchen knife for chopping, but I got by with what they had.- Terri S , Posted: 02/21/2019
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.- Theresa H , Posted: 11/29/2018
Birthday weekend celebration
This was a wonderful well equipped unit. It is warm and welcoming! We thoroughly enjoyed our time staying n the unit and Angela our rental contact was so helpful and kind! I would highly recommend this property.- Molly H , Posted: 11/27/2018
Lovely Vacation Rental
My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. Home away from home. All of the comforts you need and more while vacationing here.- Christie L , Posted: 10/29/2018
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.- Darlene F , Posted: 10/08/2018
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.- Kathleen R , Posted: 09/28/2018
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!- Lori T , Posted: 09/12/2018
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.- Mitchell C , Posted: 09/01/2018
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.- Amber H , Posted: 08/01/2018
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 !????- Minnie S , Posted: 06/04/2018
