About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 1 Half Baths, Sleeps 8

Plan an amazing South Oregon Coast escape anytime of year at this beautiful beachside Florence vacation home! Nestled right amidst the beach grasses overlooking gorgeous Heceta Beach, this three bedroom home offers stunning views, a deck overlooking the sand, and a wonderful solarium for storm watching.

In this lovely home, the solarium is the true star. Taking up the whole west wall of the living room, you'll enjoy a view of the beach that will make you feel like you are right out on the sand! View a chilly sunset or a powerful storm while staying warm and cozy inside. Also in the living room, there are comfortable sofas for relaxing, a wall-mounted, flat screen TV with cable, and ocean-themed art adorning the walls, including a large whale mural.

After a day of beach combing and kite flying, come back to the house for a nice dinner and an evening watching movies, reading, or just playing a group game, while you listen to the waves crash below through the open windows. There's also WiFi for checking emails, doing a little work, or researching restaurant options in the area.

If you do choose to stay in for dinner, you'll have a bright and well-stocked, eat-in kitchen on the main floor for meal preparation. Aside from the appliances you'd expect - stovetop/range, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave - you'll even have a gadgets like a coffee grinder and a French press, so coffee aficionados will feel right at home here! If you don't feel like heading out on a cold windy day in search of the best bowl of clam chowder, just stay in and make your own!

Out on the deck, you can have a seat and watch the waves, have a glass of wine, or share some pictures of beach scenes online to make all your friends jealous. This large deck has room for everyone to find a quiet spot and enjoy one of the best views on the whole Oregon Coast!

When it is time for bed, everyone in your group will have a choice of three rooms, all with a queen bed, and all with their own TV and DVD player. Two bedrooms are on the lower level (below the main floor), and feature deck access and accessories like bedside tables, reading lamps, and cozy bedding. The full bathroom and half bath are also located on this level.

The third bedroom is just upstairs from the living room, and offers a bit more privacy as it's the only bedroom on this upper floor. This home will comfortably sleep eight guests (there is also a queen-sized futon in the living room). Additional amenities include a washer and dryer for guest use, so you'll have no worries about keeping your pant legs out of the surf and your clothes clean as you explore Florence and the coast!

With a location about five miles north of historic downtown Florence, the Heceta Beach area is a quiet little community. There's a large expanse of sandy beach to explore, so bring a kite, your beach ball, and jogging shoes. Besides the natural ocean attractions, if you are looking for a bite out, Surfside Restaurant at Driftwood Shores is a walkable option for a bowl of seafood stew and a classic cocktail.

Also just north of the house, Darlingtonia State Natural Site is an 18-acre botanical garden dedicated to protecting a single plant species - the Darlingtonia californica, also known as the Cobra Lily. This carnivorous plant has purple blooms in the spring and year-round this park offers a unique glimpse of insect-feasting flora, as well as hiking trails, picnic areas, and a boardwalk. After a stop here, keep heading north about 10 miles to the Heceta Head Lighthouse for a tour of this historic site and to take some pictures of one of the most photographed structures on the Oregon Coast.

When you do make the short drive to downtown Florence, you'll find an amazing coffee shop, and plenty of stores and restaurants to occupy your time. The Beachcomber Pub has an impressive beer list, and the popular Waterfront Depot is famous for its for an award-winning plate of crab-encrusted halibut, classic fish and chips, and Cajun fish burgers.

Also nearby you will find the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, and the Siuslaw National Forest. With so many choices, whether you visit this ocean-view Florence vacation rental for a winter weekend of storm watching from the solarium or come in the summer for fun in the sun out on the beach, you'll never run out of things to see and do!

About Vacasa, OR - Oregon Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Beautiful home and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home with a few girlfriends, and we really enjoyed our stay. The house is adorable, and views are breathtaking. The beach is right out the back window, with multiple opportunities to beach watch. The living room solarium is very cool and unique, and two of the bedrooms open to a lower deck. It is a reasonably short walk to the beach, or there is an option to park at the beach itself. A perfect getaway!

Drafty and not quite as described.

  • 3 of 5

The solarium was amazing and offered a very unique way to view the Pacific Ocean. However one window was held in with packing tape which my husband discovered was only just holding it in. Thankfully the kids didn't lean on it. The carpets did not feel clean, we vacuumed. The toilets had not been cleaned under the rims of the seats. One TV had an image frozen on screen and would not show a picture from any source. One bedroom heater did not work, causing the room to be unusable. My son ended up sleeping on the couch. There were two space heaters but they continually tripped the breakers so weren't much help. I would question whether the beds were actually Queens as they seemed rather small. There was no French press that we could locate. The maintenance issues were not easy fixes. When I brought them to the attention of management they acted like it was something I just didn't know how to use. So they said they could send someone out to fix them quickly. They were ready to send someone out to deal with the issues, but I was not willing to have my vacation interrupted to deal with handymen coming and going.
