Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

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.

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.

<br>

<br>

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.

<br>

<br>

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!

Rustic beach house, close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Rustic, not luxurious but comfortable and pleasant. Kids absolutely loved the boat bunkbeds. The open floor plan (kids' room in loft and open to living room) made it a little harder to get the kids to bed, but it was worth it. Had to walk across the street to get to the beach, but close by and no problem. Loved the hot tub. Really appreciated the responsiveness of the property managers (immediately came and cleared overgrown access path and cleaned the smaller, separate rental cabin on the property).

House was fine, seemed expensive; beach had freezing driving wind all the time.

  • 3 of 5

The linens and towels were lovely, the beds comfortable, hot water plentiful.

I wish the living room had a reading light. Kitchen tools & things were fine, but no essentials--not even salt.

Another car sometimes parked in our driveway.

The Oregon Coast

  • 4 of 5

My family recently stayed at Heceta House. We were a family of 7. The property was in a great location, a few blocks from the beach and a short drive to Oregon Sand Dune Trail, the light house and Sea Lion Cave. The surrounding areas were absolutely beautiful!! The house was situated up a small hill with a rocky surface, so good balance and sure footing is needed to enter the house. The house was beautiful and comfortably decorated. Recommendations for improvement would include queen or kingsize beds in the two bedrooms, updated loft sleeping arangements, more kitchen supplies and a propane rather than charcoal grill. I would totally recommend this place to others. It was very easy to book and if you are looking for a nice place to stay along the Oregon Coast, this would be a good choice.

cold wind in Florence

  • 4 of 5

house comfortable, especially linens and towels. Everything works. Would have liked longer periods of sun on porch as Florence seems to have a freezing wind almost all of the time. Would have liked a reading light in the living room.

Enjoy your vacation--we did.

Cute, but missing final touches

  • 3 of 5

Great location and super cute house. The beach touches weren't over the top and the stairway is a work of art. However, there was one major and a few little things missing. First, there needs to be a ladder for the bunk beds. Our daughter took a pretty significant fall trying to climb down -major bruise on her knee, and could have been a lot worse. Other than that, just minor issues. Cutting board and corkscrew hard to find. No wine glasses. Missing drawer handle in a downstairs cabinet. Again, great location and beautifully decorated, but needs the finishing touches to justify the price.
