If you have a hard time choosing between a beach vacation and a lake vacation, this Rockaway Beach home, situated between Spring Lake and the Pacific Ocean, offers the best of both worlds. You'll enjoy beautiful lake views and a private dock, plenty of home comforts, and outdoor community amenities such as a covered picnic area - and dogs are welcome, too! Located a little more than a mile south of the Rockaway Beach business district, this home is part of a quiet community located right on the banks of Spring Lake. You'll find more than seven miles of sandy beaches just two blocks to the west across the highway, so there's no shortage of recreation available nearby. Step through the front door of this airy, inviting home to find yourself in the modern kitchen. Stainless steel appliances, ample counter space, and a farmhouse sink make it easy to cook for a group, while a dishwasher ensures cleanup is quick and painless. Sit down to eat at the six-person dining room table. To the left of the kitchen, a laundry area houses a private washer/dryer, so don't be afraid to pack light! There's also a small half-bathroom. Past the dining area, a large family room features plenty of comfy furniture. No matter where you sit, you'll have an excellent view of the 75-inch flatscreen TV! Browse the cable channels, pop in a DVD, or, if you bring your account information, stream a show directly from Netflix. From the living room, sliding glass doors open onto a back patio, which features a gas grill as well as a table and chairs. The lake is mere steps from the back door, providing a scenic backdrop for your morning cup of coffee. Back inside, head upstairs to find the three bedrooms. One room features two twin-size bunk beds, and the second room has a queen-size bed. In the master bedroom, you'll find a queen bed, a flatscreen TV, and an en suite bathroom with a jetted bathtub and a walk-in shower. Altogether, up to six guests are welcome at this home. This home can also accommodate a maximum of two small dogs weighing up to 25 pounds - they're part of the family, after all! (Please note that an additional nightly pet fee applies. ) With a lake in your backyard, you'll have plenty of opportunities for recreation while staying conveniently close to home. Head out to the private dock and take the provided canoe out for a spin on the lake, or start your morning with a refreshing swim if you feel like braving the chilly water. Bring along your fishing poles (and a valid fishing license) and see what you can catch. Get a fire going in the shared outdoor firepit and roast s'mores while the sun sets. If you'd rather feel sand between your toes, just head a few blocks west! Stroll along the beach while you hunt for sand dollars and sea glass, or take your dogs for a run in the sand. Afterward, treat yourself to a tasty meal in downtown Rockaway Beach before returning to your vacation rental for some rest and relaxation. No matter what you plan to do with your vacation days, you're guaranteed to have a good time when you stay at this lovely Rockaway Beach rental. Make your reservation today!
