The Crow's Nest - Ocean View Heceta Beach Florence - Sleeps 8

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Fabulous Heceta Beach in Florence Oregon. One of Oregon's most beautiful coast lines.


'A crow's nest is a structure in the upper part of the mainmast of a ship that is used as a lookout point. It was a sailor in the crow's nest (Rodrigo de Triana) who actually first witnessed the Americas in 1492, rather than Christopher Columbus.'

Welcome to our Lookout Point.

This elegant spacious beach getaway offers 3 levels, over 1800 sqft and is perfect for small and large families, small corporate gatherings, or groups wanting to vacation together. It's also perfect for a romantic weekend for couples, who want to pamper themselves.

Enjoy magnificent sunsets from most rooms in the house and from the balcony. Take a relaxing stroll on the beach, whale watching, shelling, or just taking in the sounds and sights of the Pacific Ocean. To the south you can see the Siuslaw River Jetty and Baker Beach just to the north.

Enjoy fine dining just a half a block away at the Driftwood Shores Hotel and Restaurant where you can enjoy romantic candlelight dining while watching the moon and stars sparkle off the ocean waves.

Just minutes away from The Crow's Nest are several attractions such as the Sea Lion Caves, the only sea lion cave of its kind in North America, or the Heceta Head Light House, one of the most photographed light houses in the world. Don’t forget to visit Old Town Florence where you can visit some of the finest bistros, cafes and restaurants that Florence has to offer. Visit the galleries which offer art works and fabulous sculptures and creations from many of the local artists as well as from around the world.

If you are an off-roader this is the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. There are large areas of the dunes open to off roading, or there are quiet hiking trails through forests and dunes, estuaries and hills to the beach. Florence is truly a center for a diverse array of outdoor activities.

With its three (3) bedrooms and the loft, the Crow's Nest is cost efficient for large groups. The lower level bedroom has a Queen size bed with it's own bath. On the main level there are 2 bedrooms with King beds in each and a full bath. Further, the main level has a relaxing sitting area, a kitchen/dining area, and a large family room. The hand carved stairs to the Loft, where there is Queen size bed and TV.

Why Tony Losco chose Central Coast

Our home is located in such a great area of walking proximity to the beach. Haceta Beach is the nicest beach area in Florence. Perfect for a walk or a run. We really enjoy our home.

What makes this house unique

You are just steps form the beach, but far enough for some privacy. Our home offers plenty of space to enjoy and relax. Come and see what we have to share with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a wonderful stay at your beautiful home. We walked the beautiful sunny beach, jumped the waves and climbed the dunes. Flying kites, riding the bikes and collecting shells filled our days too! We ate like kings and queens in your awesome kitchen. We even finished the jigsaw puzzle, reach books and rented a few movies. The kids were extremely comfortable and the grandchildren loved the loft. My favorite part was all the decorations and wall art. You really felt that you had come to a relaxing one of a kind beach mansion. Many Thanks!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at The Crow's Nest a few times and have always enjoyed our stay. Access to the beach is close and the house is designed to provide a lot of privacy. It is also a nice quiet area. There is a bedroom and bathroom on the bottom level and the open floor plan on the second level. Lots of windows that provide great natural light. House is clean and beds are comfortable! I also love that the house is always well stocked with towels.

My husband is going through Pancreatic Cancer and was doing quite well and we decided to get out of our house that we had been confined to for many months and go to the beach for nearly a month! We just returned from 27 days at the Crow's Nest! Our family joined us when they could every week and we could not have asked for a more lovely place at the beach! The beach home had everything you would ever want...many movies, books, magazines, games galore and room for everyone! Just a few minutes walk to a beautiful beach! The owner was wonderful to work with and we would highly recommend the Crow's Nest with an A+!
