Florence Oregon, Enjoy Walks on the Beach or Relax by the Fire

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11)

Kickback, relax and enjoy the sound of the Ocean in our immaculate, nearly new Cape Cod Cottage. Built in 2006 our home was inspired by my lovely wife Valerie who as a child spent many summer vacations with her family 'At the Cape'. Flexibility is the key word when describing our home because it can be a cozy get away for two or a family reunion for ten.

We are a short 2 minute walk to the beach where crashing waves and beautiful sunsets are sure to amaze and inspire. Take romantic walks on the beach or if you already did that and now you have the 'kids' bring a lawn chair, a bottle of wine (beer works too) and some beach toys. Whatever your plan is nothing beats a day at the beach especially if you don't have to drive home!

When your day at the beach comes to an end, take a nice relaxing hot outdoor shower, mix a cocktail and fire up the BBQ. Life is good!

About Mike Gansen

Valerie and I have been together for 10 years now and we have 3 children ages 3-7 so we understand the importance of the 'getaway' from our busy lives. we love to take the kids to the coast and create the pages of memories that will make up the book of our life but, it is the time spent and the memories created with the one you fell in love with that is the glue that holds those pages together.

Mike Gansen purchased this house in 2006

Why Mike Gansen chose Florence

We love Florence. The old town shopping, Dune buggy rides, Horse back riding, Golfing, Beach combing, Whale watching, Hiking I could go on and on. Bottom line is Val and I both felt Florence is a place we could build a lifetime of 'fun'memories with our family.

What makes this house unique

Our home is nearly new so it is 'nice and tight' what i mean by that is when its cold outside its nice and warm inside because the doors and windows don't leak it has a forced air heating system and a Lopi wood burning stove (firewood included) all the modern appliances, 2 car garage and a fenced yard for the pooch!

Sweet and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a holiday getaway at this sweet little house near the beach. We found it to be super comfortable and well stocked for our needs - and the kids loved the little reading nooks and cozy comforts around the house. It was great to have a fenced yard so our dog could hang outside safely, and a garage too (since it rained a fair bit while we were there). We would definitely stay there again!

Breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

The house was well maintained. Just wished we had access to laundry. Everything we needed was supplied. Close enough to town and the view was breathtaking.

This house was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time! The house was welcoming and large. It had lots of space to cook in the kitchen, a big dining table, and comfortable living room area. It was clean and provided everything we needed. We were 6 people and had plenty of space. The beach is amazing and the location is close to everything. We would love to go back!

This is a really comfortable house to relax and enjoy beach life.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that our family has rented this house. It's across the street from a beautiful beach, that does not get crowded. We have brought our dogs, both times which has added to the quality of our family experience. The kitchen is well appointed and a pleasure to work in. The home is bright and charming. Teens love the loft space, as it is roomy enough for 4, is separated from the main living area, and has its own half bathroom. This floor plan and location has worked really well for our family. Again, this house played a key role in creating many sweet family memories.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, just a short walk to the beach. The inside of the place is well-maintained and looks just like the photos. Lots of space for a family. Well-stocked kitchen. The outside really needs to be painted and updated. I was a bit worried when we drove up to the house,as it looks quite run down, but the inside is very nice. A fresh coat of paint would do wonders for the outside. My daughter loved the little reading area underneath the stairs!
