Gorgeous pet-friendly home with close beach access!
Just north of historic downtown Florence is the peaceful, oceanside neighborhood of Heceta Beach and this newer construction, two-bedroom Florence vacation home! Sky blue and two stories tall, this getaway has a large wrap-around deck, hardwood floors, gorgeous ocean views, and a crisp, beach-influenced design theme throughout.
Step inside to a living room with tall ceilings, lots of windows, and comfortable furniture for relaxing. When you want to stay in and take it easy, there's a flat screen TV with DirecTV, a DVD player and a VCR, so bring your favorite TV shows and old movies on videotape from home. Have a movie marathon complete with popcorn and snacks on the coffee table or just watch the big game on a lazy Sunday afternoon. There's also WiFi throughout the house, so keeping in touch with the office is no problem at all.
The full kitchen is well organized with all of the major appliances you'll need for preparing meals. There's even a dishwasher for easy clean up. Use the blender to whip up some fruit smoothies to go along with some chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. A table right in the kitchen provides a cozy dining space whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinnertime.
This beach retreat's deck is fully furnished with an outdoor table, chairs, and a gas grill. Just throw some steaks on grill and have an afternoon cookout, complete with the relaxing sounds of the waves crashing nearby. After dinner, relax and finish up the wine, talk about the day, or just enjoy a pretty sunset. And if you're the first one up in the morning, bring your coffee out here for some quiet, contemplative time or even a few yoga stretches.
There's a bedroom located on the main floor with a queen sized bed, ocean-themed bedding, and relaxing cool color tones. There's also a bathroom on this floor, as well as a laundry room with a washer and dryer.
Head upstairs to a cute little loft area overlooking the living room with its own sitting area, full futon, and TV. The second bedroom is a stylish room with vaulted ceilings and a comfortable king sized bed. Also on this level a second bathroom. This home will sleep eight guests comfortably, including your furry family members with a $10 per day, pet dog fee (a $40 minimum is required).
When you're done beachcombing for shells and pieces of agate, running on the beach with the dog, or just relaxing on the sand with a good beach book, you'll be just a short walk away from your Florence vacation home. Or pack a picnic lunch and spend all day on the shore! From here, it's also a short walk to the Surfside Restaurant for lunch, or just a five mile drive into town for even more restaurant choices.
Old Town Florence enjoys a scenic view of the Siuslaw River and has a number of galleries, shops, cafes, and coffee houses. Wander through bookstores or spend and hour or so sitting out at a sidewalk cafe just people watching. There's even an antique district to browse through and a store dedicated to just olives - stuffed olives, olive oils, pickled vegetables, and plenty of samples.
A day trip in the area might include a drive north about a half an hour to the Heceta Head Lighthouse just outside of Yachats for a tour of this historic structure and a walk around the grounds. Continue into town and stop at the Green Salmon Coffee Shop for lattes, pastries, or freshly-prepared lunch snacks.
Closer to home, the Sea Lion Caves are only 11 miles north of Florence and whale watching and tide pooling can be done at many locations right near your Heceta Beach neighborhood. Back in Florence's Old Town, celebrate your getaway with a dinner at Kelly's Cantina for seafood chowder and lamb shanks, followed by a show at the Three Rivers Casino.
Whether you come to this lovely Florence vacation rental in the off-season for some winter storm watching, or plan a stay in the summer, your whole family will love staying here!
