Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.75 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Heceta Haven, started out as a 1 room cabin in 1945. It's been added onto and remodeled over the years, and is now a spacious 1200 square foot house, that sleeps 8. It's the last house on a short, dead end street in one of Heceta Beach's original neighborhoods. It has an ocean view and is only a 2 minute walk down a wooded trail, next to a babbling brook, that you access right from the front yard. Nestled among the windswept pines & rhododendrons, it's on a double lot and very private. It has a large wrap around deck with wind protected views, and a rear deck with views off of the family room. In December of 2010 Heceta Haven was updated with new windows in every room, which has made it brighter & warmer, and solved the musty smell which you might see mentioned in old reviews.

Entering the front door, into the dining room/kitchen which has open beamed ceilings and a great view from the dining room table. There's a bar with chairs, for the kids to play games or do craft projects. Off of both sides of this area, is a sitting room, and then a bedroom. The sitting rooms both have bi-fold doors, and both have full size fold flat sofas. There is a bathroom with shower stall as well off the main area.The master bedroom has it's own bath and a shower/tub combo and a 19 inch TV with DVD Player

.

Off the back of the house is a large family room, it has a view and a door to the back yard, and deck. With the two over stuffed chairs, the large rocking chair, the sofa, the leather easy chair, and the 32 inch LCD TV, there is room for the whole family to gather and enjoy a movie from the collection provided or stream a movie on Netflix. There is also a sony stereo, with AM/FM & CD Player.

The kitchen has an electric range, microwave an apartment size dishwasher, and a frost free refrigerator and is well stocked with all the things you'll need for a family gathering. The home can accommodate a total of 8 people in the 4 separate sleeping areas. The home has 3 TVs, 2 VCRs, 2 DVD players, telephone with unlimited nationwide long distance, WiFi, stereo, and an apartment sized stackable washer/dryer.

Enjoy elegant fine dining with an ocean view at the Driftwood Shores resort just 1/2 block away, or enjoy Burgers & Brew 'where the locals hang out' at Jerry's Place, just 2 blocks away. Heceta Haven is a short drive from the Historic Old Town Florence gift shops, wine bars, coffee bistros, fabulous seafood restaurants and the casino. Explore some of the best fishing on one of 27 local lakes, or play out on some of the finest sand dunes, and state parks that Oregon has to offer.

Heceta Haven , has parking in front and in back so can accommodate ATV & Boat Trailers. Enjoy the sound of the surf and watch blazing sunsets of orange & gold.

Actually it will be less than one star

  • 1 of 5

I do "Not" recommend staying at the Heceta Haven. Home was Not clean!!! My daughter in-law woke up to a strangers earring stuck to her back (so gross and if that doesn't say; they didn't clean I don't know what does). Couch was sagging/ broke so we could not comfortably enjoy front room area. The screen was coming off of the screen door. Hole in carpet covered up by chair. Dirt and trash items (actual dirt, very old ear plug, bottle cap etc.) found beside furniture also showing place was not cleaned. There was a big WET stain on the carpet in master bedroom. Main bathroom smelled terrible and they have the audacity to charge a cleaning fee!! You only have a very small peekaboo view of the ocean from inside the house. They advertised a Babbling Brook so I was very excited for my grandson to have this to enjoy(he is unable to get to the beach so this was a very big deal. I wanted him to be able to have fun just like everyone else) but THERE IS NO BABBLING BROOK.. I informed management co. of all of these issues, she was aware of most of the problems. She is a very nice lady but only seem to offer excuses. What should have been a very special weekend for our family was definitely diminished by this home and management service.. I took pictures of above mentioned problems. Mrs Parsons

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Quick trip to Florence to play golf with a friend. This house was perfect for the two of us (with bedrooms at opposite ends of the house and two bathrooms) and could have handled two more guys on the fold down beds. Small but efficient kitchen. Very comfortable, homey feel and very quiet since it's at the end of a dead end street. 6 minutes to Sandpines Golf Course and about the same to Ocean Dunes. Perfect!

Lifes's a beach!

  • 4 of 5

Nice house with room for 8 of us to spread out. The kids could play in one room and adults could visit in another or out on the deck with a view of the ocean. Easy beach access, close to town, well stocked! Last comment out the door "Can we come back again?".
