Great location, comfortable and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in the Heceta Coastal Cottage. The Cooleys were extremely accommodating when we made two changes to our original reservation, and Tony called to check on us to make sure all was well. The cottage was as advertised. The bed was comfortable and we slept soundly, falling asleep listening to the waves of the Pacific, and an occasional foghorn. The kitchen was well stocked, allowing us to prepare several meals there. We appreciated the library of VHS movies and player available to us, as well as the laundry facilities. The best part of the cottage was its proximity to Heceta Beach (merely a short walk) and the quiet deck for afternoon wine. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Avoid at all Costs! Dirty! Unresponsive Owners! Do not trust the positive reviews!

  • 1 of 5

I rented this cottage for two nights. We arrived late on Friday, around 11 pm, exhausted from our trip. We pulled in and was greeted with a pitch black house, no outside lights on. Luckily, we had a flashlight and was able to see to get the front door and access the lock box. When we opened the door, we were hit with this strong musty, mildew order. That concerned me but we went in and checked out the place. It was dirty. There were cobwebs hanging off of the curtains. There was mold on the bathroom ceiling. The leather recliner was full of dog hair. I know because I laid my dark red jacket over the top of the recliner and it was coated in dog hair. The bed in the bedroom was old and very uncomfortable. My parents work up in the morning with aching backs from the lumpy mattress. Also, note there is no door on the bedroom. I was going to sleep in the loft; however, once I went up the steep ladder to access the loft, I realized I could not sleep here. It was dirty, had a bad smell, the floor was only partially finished with loose rugs and the ceiling draped far too close to the mattress to feel comfortable. So, I decided to sleep on the futon. It was a miserable nights rest. The springs kept poking me in the back. I too woke up with my back aching. We would never have stayed except that we were tired and it was too late to find other accommodations.

I checked out that morning, even though we were booked another night. I could not imagine staying there any longer. We left by a little after 11 am. I texted the owner's on Saturday to let them know we had checked out and why we checked out. I requested a refund of my second night since we did not feel comfortable to stay there. That was two days ago. As of yet, I have not received any response from the owners. There has been no acknowledgement of my desire for a partial refund or more importantly a response to the complaints about their house. I truly feel it was not healthy to stay in a house with such mold issues, not to mention the pain we experienced sleeping in the beds and futon sofa. I sincerely recommend you look for another rental in Florence that this one. I've stayed at several over this past summer in Florence that have not only met my expectations but exceeded them. Not so with this rental.

Owner's Response: I assure you that all of our reviews are real, true and genuine. In the 12 years that we have offered our cottage through VRBO, every few years, a guest is dissatisfied for some reason. We ask that we be made aware of this dissatisfaction and make every attempt we can to immediately remedy the situation. Despite the claim, I did not receive a text message indicating the disappointment and early departure. I was not made aware of this until several days later, via email. At that time, I contacted the guests who arrived the previous day to try to confirm the conditions. They indicated the cottage was clean, did not have a “musty, mildew order”, and were quite pleased with how they received the cottage. I contacted my housekeeper for a statement and asked that she check on the conditions described on the next visit. In no way could I confirm the conditions described. Had I been able to confirm I would have certainly refunded a night’s stay. This review is full of opinions, many of which stretch the truth. The bed in the bedroom is less than 2 years old and (other than the reviewers dog), it had been several weeks since the last pet accompanied a guest which makes it suspect that there would be dog hair found on a white, leather recliner. Although I could not confirm the claims made by the guest, because of the general dissatisfaction, 8 days ago I refunded in full the cleaning deposit. This as well was not mentioned. This review is opinionated and includes invalid statements. We strive to offer a good value and take great pride in assuring our home is cleaned, stocked and ready for a great coastal experience. We try to accurately reflect our cottage in the photos and text in our adds.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute little place! It was just two of us and it was the perfect size. SO close to the beach! I love how well hidden the house is as well. Felt like our own little paradise. Also loved that we could easily walk up to the nearby bar, Jerry's Place, and grab a quick drink or food.

Heceta Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cute,clean and fit our needs perfectly. A five minute walk to the beach.Within close driving distance to some great attractions. The seal caves,the lighthouse and the Sand dunes to name a couple.Quiet and peaceful.Yard completely surrounded by hedges giving it a real sense of privacy.Would highly recommend it for a couple or a small family with children over the age of 5 as the access to the loft space would be tricky for toddlers.Made my first trip to Oregon a real pleasure.

heceta beach

  • 4 of 5

overall a nice place. great privacy with a nice deck. furnishings are outdated, but comfortable. my main problem was no cable tv or wi-fi, but that was my mistake for not checking - they are not advertised on the vrbo site. great feature was jerry's bar and grill which is a block and a half away, and it's a great local bar with wi-fi. good sized kitchen with everything you'll need, outdoor charcoal grill and laundry onsite. again, overall a well priced option. note - att cell service non-existent.
