It just oozes that charming beach feel. Located third to the last house on a one lane dead end street, it has a path to the beach, right across the lane.

On the first floor is the one car garage, and a large laundry room with full size washer and dryer.. The second floor is the main living area, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and the living, dining and kitchen area. On the 3rd floor is the loft with a play area for the kids, including a craft table and craft supplies, books, games, puzzles and an amazing view. There is a cozy sitting area with skylights and a marvelous library, plus a queen sofa sleeper and a full size bed. The adults actually enjoy this area as much as the kids.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are one large great room, with fantastic views of the beach. Relax in front of the pellet stove on those stormy winter days or enjoy the afternoon sun out on the large wrap around deck with great views. There is an overstuffed chair, a large sofa, and 2 cozy rocking chairs for your comfort. The dining room table for 6, 8 if you put in the leaves.. A 32 inch TV with DVD player, streaming internet TV(Roku) rounds out your time at the beach.

About Leslie

The house was built by our parents in the mid-1960s and we expanded it in the late 1990s. We have tried to maintain the vintage character of the older part of the house.

Growing up in Eugene, Oregon, our family stayed at Gull Landing whenever possible. We are now displaced Oregonians. One of us, Steve, lives in Washington State and the other, Ann, in New Mexico. Heceta Beach is still a wonderful magical getaway for us and our generation of family. Ann and her husband have been bringing their daughter here for 17 years and still haven’t run out of hikes or new places to visit. The house is also perfect for gatherings of family and friends. There is plenty of room for all.

Leslie purchased this house in 1965

Why Leslie chose Central Coast

Gull Landing has a wide view of Heceta Beach which is just a few steps away. One can walk the beach northward to Sutton Creek or southward to the jetty. Hiking and other attractions are just moments away. A deck wraps around much of the house so you can always find a sheltered spot outside for reading or watching the ocean. If you happen to get an Oregon coastal storm, the house is cozy and the pellet stove makes for a romantic atmosphere. The house is near the end of a private, dead-end street so there is very little traffic.

What makes this house unique

Nearby are points of interest for everyone. Ten miles away is the world’s largest sea cave, the last known North American home of wild Steller sea lions. The rugged coastal cliffs have many lighthouses, including nearby Heceta Head, one of the most photographed lighthouses in the U.S. Close too are the Newport Aquarium, covered bridges, waterfalls, tide pools, a dive park, an old growth forest, freshwater lakes and even carnivorous plants. Fishing, crabbing, horseback riding, sandboarding, dune buggy rides and golf courses are no more than ten minutes away from this quiet home on a dead end street. Or, walk along the beach immediately in front of the house. The fishing village of Florence has restored docks, a famous Art Deco bridge, historic buildings, and many restaurants. In the winter and early spring, you can sit in the living room and see the spouts of gray whales as they migrate between the Bering Sea and Mexico.

Virtually Beachfront At Heceta Beach - Gull Landing

The view is so worth it! Wonderful master bedroom and bath!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, yet close to town and everything you need! Big shower, small kitchen, but worked great for our needs. Wish the living room had a little more seating, but we just added some chairs from the master when Grandpa and friends came over, cozy! They had ant traps on the kitchen counter with some visitors, I meant to share with them that I found Febreze works great for getting rid of ants and keeping them away, even in the cupboards. Just like home with all the extra touches and supplies. Lovely!

What a terrific home on the coast! It was a marriage of comfort and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We love the giant Windows looking out to sea. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds comfortable. The area was quiet but not isolated. Being tucked away and yet close to town was a perfect. We will be sure to come back.
