Florence townhome description

Whales Watch is a one bedroom, 1000 square foot wheel chair accessible beach front duplex just steps from the beach! Walk out the sliding glass door, and right on to the beach. Sitting at the furthest point out on Heceta Beach, it has sweeping ocean views from the Siuslaw River Jetty to the Heceta Head Lighthouse. Sit in the dark and watch the lighthouse light sweep through the kitchen & living room. Perfect for watching Whales, Bald Eagles, Osprey, Pelicans, Sea Lions and other assorted wildlife. If it we're any closer to the ocean you'd need a wet-suit. The ocean breeze beckons you to sit on the patio and soak in the view!
The spacious bedroom has a king size bed with Mediterranean Oak furniture a sitting area and it's own door to the bathroom. It also has an electric fireplace. The living room, kitchen and dining area is one large room right on the beach. There is a large hallway and utility room separating the two, with another entrance to the bathroom. The living room is furnished with comfortable overstuffed slip covered furniture and a mix of Antiques & Rattan. The love seat turns into a twin hide-a-bed and there is also a portable fold out twin bed. With a dining room table for 4, and a 2 person bar there's always a place to eat and enjoy the view. Electric Faux Fireplace adds to the ambiance. The kitchen is well stocked with everything from wine glasses, blender, to crock pot & turkey roaster. Microwave, frost free refrigerator, and an electric range.(sorry no dishwasher).
The owners parents were at one time, 'world travelers', so the furniture comes from around the world, and so do the Original Fine Art oil paintings. The 100 year old Bush & Gertz Cabinet Grand (upright) Piano is tuned & ready to have it's ivory's tickled. We've even thrown in some sheet music, but if you have a favorite bring it along.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1988

                  About the owner: We have lived here at Heceta Beach since 1994. Our house is a duplex, we live in half and the other half is our vacation rental. We enjoy sharing with others what we get to enjoy every day. My husband was from Milwaukee Wisconsin, via Texas & Alaska. And I was originally from Northern California but got here via Seoul Korea, Southern California, Ashland & Portland. We fell in love with the small town atmosphere, and the temperate climate. It may be rainy, but you don't have to shovel rain, and the Ocean Breezes keep it an even 70 in the summer.
