This cute two-bedroom Florence vacation rental is an idyllic retreat for a family getaway or gathering of friends. Tucked behind coastal foliage and trees and only a few blocks from the gorgeous Pacific Ocean, indulge in sun-kissed beach days at this oceanside home.
From this charming bungalow, there's a leisurely path to the beach at Driftwood Shores Resort just down the road. You'll find a long sandy beach to explore where you can fly a kite or roll your pant legs up and play in the surf! Local attractions include Florence's historic Old Town area for shopping, galleries, and restaurants. The surrounding inland lakes offer fishing while golf fanatics will appreciate the Rhodo Dunes Golf Course. The pristine Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is a must, but if you don't feel like driving you can spend hours whale watching right from the beach!
The wraparound front porch complete with patio furniture welcomes guests upon their arrival. It's just the place for a cup of coffee or an afternoon cup of tea while enjoying a few chapters of your latest read. And when you step through the front door, you'll find the interior is just as inviting.
The cozy living room features a collection of comfortable furniture, wooden shelves filled with books, and ocean-themed throw pillows. You'll instantly feel at home in this well-loved beach house with the wood burning stone fireplace to keep you warm on chilly coast nights. There is also a flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player and collection of DVDs to choose from for a movie night or marathon of your favorite show when you don't feel up to venturing outdoors.
The eat-in kitchen is brightly decorated and includes all the necessary cooking utensils for gourmet dinners or light snacks. Use the refrigerator, stovetop/oven and microwave to prepare fresh seafood ingredients in the comfort of your beach house. You'll have everything you need from plates, silverware, and wine glasses to pots, pans and a dishwasher to keep cleanup simple. The wooden dining table is perfect for buffet-style lunches, while out on the porch there's a grill and picnic table so you can enjoy your meal with some sunshine.
There will be no arguing with the kids when it's their bedtime, as the little ones will be treated to a whimsical room all their own. They can sail away to dreamland in a bunk bed shaped like a boat with the company of friendly ocean creatures in the undersea mural. Two additional bedrooms each have a comfortable queen-sized bed. The master suite even has its own TV and DVD player as well as a private bathroom with a romantic claw foot tub - Just open the windows and let the ocean's rhythmic waves lull you to sleep in this peaceful room.
When you're looking for some quiet repose, the top level loft is a great, surf shack-style ocean-view room. Come up here to read, socialize, or just enjoy the beautiful Heceta Beach scenery. And of course, there's also the outdoor hot tub on the deck adding the final touch on everything you need for a blissful and relaxing getaway.
When you unfold the sleeper sofa downstairs, this home can comfortably accommodate eight guests. And don't leave your canine friends behind! Bring the dogs along for some quality time running and playing on the beach, though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply. Wi-Fi is also included in this home if you feel inclined to check your email during your ocean getaway.
With its free-spirited yet luxurious decor, this cherished beach house is sure to charm guests of all ages during your next visit to the endearing oceanside town of Florence.
