Spectacular ocean views from this dog-friendly cottage await!
Overlooking Heceta Beach and the Pacific Ocean, you'll find this cute, two-bedroom Florence vacation home is perfect for a memorable Oregon Coast getaway with family, friends, or even a romantic trip for two! Sky blue on the outside and warm and cozy inside, this retreat has all the comforts of home, as well as a beautiful ocean view. And don't forget the dogs at home - up to two dogs are welcome here.
The large living room, dining area, and kitchen are open and spacious. Pull up the ottoman to a spot right near the windows for a gaze out at the water, or settle back on one of the sofas. There's a comfy spot for everyone in the living room and a wood burning stove for warmth and ambiance. After a day walking around Old Town, come back to your ocean-side cottage and spend the evening watching DVDs, snacking on popcorn, or just relaxing with your feet up.
You can set the dining room table for an early morning breakfast before heading down to the beach for kite flying and sand castle building. The galley-style kitchen has everything you'll need including a toaster, microwave, coffeemaker, and all the major appliances except a dishwasher. Make big pots of warming soup or a simple quinoa salad; after dinner, dishes can always soak while you walk down to the beach to catch an amazing sunset!
All on one level, this home works well for any small children or older guests who may not want to navigate stairs. The two bedrooms include a bright and tidy master with a queen sized bed, large closet, and en suite bathroom. This room also has its own TV so you can stay up late surfing the cable channels or using the WiFi to check email or research restaurants.
The second bedroom has a twin bed and a queen bed. Perfect for kids to share a room, this space includes a bedside table, reading lamp, and cozy, colorful quilts on the beds. An additional full bathroom is located just down the hall. This home will sleep seven guests comfortably, including two furry friends, though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply.
On nice sunny days, head out to the deck for a beautiful ocean view. There's also a gas grill for burgers and steaks, or you can just to sit out on the patio chairs and socialize. And in the winter, dramatic storms can be viewed from just inside, while you stay nice and toasty in the living room. In addition, just outside the back is a nice green space for kids and dogs.
From the Pelican's Perch vacation home, you are steps away from the ocean's edge, where you can enjoy wide open vistas, rolling waves, and a 10 mile stretch of pristine, sandy beach. Pack a picnic lunch of sandwiches and cookies and head down for a day on the sand. Or less than a half a mile's walk along the shore is the Surfside Restaurant for lunch with a view, or even breakfast and dinner on days you don't feel like preparing a meal back at the house.
Of course, if you make the short six mile drive to the Old Town section of Florence, you'll have many more dining options - hit the Beachcomber Tavern for fish and chips, the Waterfront Depot for their famous crab-crusted halibut, or even pick up Thai take-out to go back and eat in front of the fireplace while you watch DVDs of your favorite TV shows.
For those seeking adventure, the Florence region does not disappoint! There are many inland lakes and the Suislaw River for fishing, as well as deep sea fishing charters leaving right from the coast at Florence and farther south at Coos Bay. You can head out in the morning and catch some ling cod or rock fish for dinner that evening! Less than an hour's drive south will take you to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Watch the ATVs and dune buggies navigate the sand or rent your own wheels and give it a try yourself.
Whatever you do in Florence - people watching while you have your morning latte at Suislaw River Coffee Roasters, running with the dogs on the beach, or just having a romantic, candlelit dinner back at your cozy Florence vacation rental - your Central Oregon Coast getaway will undoubtedly be a memorable one!
The views and closeness of the beach are great.
We’ve stayed at the Pelicans Perch 10 plus times over the last several years. It’s simple, no frills but that’s what we are looking for! The the beds are comfy, the new carpets and new (deeper) bathtub were wonderful surprises since our last stay. The beach is literally 10 steps away. We can’t wait until our next visit.
Everything, especially the secured deck, it was perfect for my puppy dog Rusty. It was close to the beach for walking and watching from the house.
My four adult children are visiting me in Washington from Canada. I wanted to take them to the Oregon coast and couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. The cabin was clean and homey. They have board games which we used on the two nights we were there. Best part was that it is only a few steps to the ocean. I highly recommend this vacation home and most likely will return some day for another visit.

Love this property. Probably 20 years we've been staying here, but it's getting worn. Clean enough, but couches need replacing or slip covers. Several throw rugs are frayed. If you reserve for 5 days I think you can provide more than 1 skinny roll of single ply paper towels. Also, kitchen utensils aren't adequate. No shot glass, no pyrex measuring pitcher, no decent wine glass? Had to make a stop at Goodwill to buy what we needed. Didn't leave what we bought because we'd provisioned at our last stay & it wasn't there this time. Maybe theft is a problem with some renters. That said, we love the location, view, & our dog loves the enclosed deck where she can watch the comings & goings of people and other dogs. Just sorry to see the property going a little downhill.
We appreciate the guests feedback. Our local staff is talking to the owner about replacing or recovering the furniture and making general improvements during the slower renting season. The kitchen supplies will be inventoried and replaced for guest satisfaction.
We stay at this home quite often, it is very quiet and easy to get to any location in Florence. You won't regret staying here
We've been staying at the Pelican Perch for the past 20 years and we take my Mother-in-law, who is now 91, when we first arrived, she said, " It feels like coming home". It has a great view and the beach access is close and easy, for us to take Mom on the beach with her walker.
We loved the cozy, cottage feel. Inside the cottage or outside on the large deck presented a peaceful ocean view. A quick few steps to the ocean was exactly what our family loved most...we will be back one day!
Perfect for a little family trip!
Quiet, loved our view of the ocean. The house was comfortable and fitted our needs perfectly! Thank you for a great stay!
This home is not far from downtown Florence and minutes to dining and a very eclectic bar. The beach is just a few steps away also. We've stayed here numerous times and it is always very clean and in order.
It was cozy, clean convenient and comfortable!! We want to come back in a month and want to stay here!!!
The beach is right across the street and the house has a very nice view.
My friends have stayed here at least 10 times over the years. it is a great little house and the views are wonderful and it is very relaxing.
My family and I have been coming here for a couple years now. We love how simple and comfy The Pelicans Perch is. Nothing fancy but cozy and welcoming, especially when you use the fireplace which we do every night. We will definitely be back!
Home was very cozy. A bit dated, but most of the homes in this area are older, so to be expected. Some of the window blinds need some work. Being able to walk across the street to easy beach access was fantastic! Gorgeous views from large windows. Loved it!
We needed a toilet chain replaced in one of the bathrooms. I called Vacasa and a plumber was there within 2 hours and everything was repaired, it was great.
Super cute home with easy beach access. Quick drive to coffee and shopping and eating. Vacasa was always accommodating and kept us well informed on our reservation, and the gift bag was the BEST!
Very nice location easy access to walk on the beach
This house is in a great location, with wonderful access to the beach.
Loved the location walking distance from the beach. The porch is gated [ideal for young kids] with a small fence. Beautiful sunsets. Really enjoyed our stay
nice, tidy cottage, good location, easiest beach access ever!
Seriously see the ocean from the porch and you walk across a small road to your path to an amazing beach!
Amazingly clean and fresh linens and such clean floors for being a rich from the beach! Pleasant surprise.
Loved the view. Clean and had everything to make us feel at home away from home.
Steps away from the beach, and great views from the deck and living room. This was a perfect size for a couple of people, we used the kitchen to prepare our meals. No dishwasher, but that was fine for us. We enjoyed our stay, would book this property again.
We have rented this house many times. It is cozy, a 2 minute walk to the beach, which is across the street, and an exceptional view of the water.
We were two couples looking for a relaxing getaway. The cottage is simple, but met our needs just fine....we even enjoyed doing the dishes together!
The rules are clearly explained and because of the numerous rentals around, there were eyes to see that the rules were enforced which was no problem for us but could be for others. Place was spotless, comfortable with a wonderful view of the ocean.
Delightful cottage to stay at. Beautiful ocean views
This little cottage was perfect for the three of us and our dog. The ocean is a stone's throw away. We had a lovely time and would definitely stay here again!
this was the 5th time i have stayed at pelican's perch. it's my favorite spot on the coast! the house is perfect. cozy and clean. the wood-burning stove is fantastic! the beach is beautiful and fun to explore. great location. wonderful place to stay and spend time with friends for a relaxing weekend!
A few issues, but we will return. Close to Eugene. Great view. Beach is across the street.
A great place to experience the beach and the ocean. Wonderful ocean wave sounds and great beach walking.
Although this is a wonderful property with a great ocean & people & dog watching view, my husband & I were disappointed. We've stayed at this property for over 10 years when it was managed by a local Florence management company. Since then it has gone downhill. The kitchen used to be stocked with quality utensils, which are gone. We wouldn't even cook on the non-stick skillet; it was so scratched & everyone know that is unsafe for your health. So be advised to bring your own skillet unless you don't care. The 2 couches are unstained, but worn & need slipcovers at least. The area rugs in both bathrooms were dirty & we had to wash them. Also, the bedspread in the master bedroom was stained. ICK! So yes, we were disappointed but will go back & hope there are improvements.
We appreciate having the opportunity to address the feedback provided in this review. The kitchen utensils have been restocked, the non-stick pan has been replaced, the bath mats have been replaced, and the bedspread has been treated for stains. The state of the couches has been brought to the attention of the owners. Thanks!
One couldn't ask for better access to the beach! It was so great to be able to get up and walk the beach in the morning. House was clean and beds were very comfortable. Didn't do a lot of cooking, but kitchen was adequate. Very convenient having the washer and dryer. All in all it's a great location and a very pleasant place to stay. Nice and quiet. Will rent again when I'm next in the Florence area.
We stayed here for the third time. Loved the funky cabin, great location and layout. However since the price more than doubled from our last stay 2 years ago ($227 versus 118 per night of total bill) we expected to see improvements. The toilets were still old, no hairdryer, the sofa just about falling apart,the deck boards ready to crack and have someone having an accident, the shed full of stuff and no decent deck chairs. As I said, for the price we expected some nice improvements. We were disappointed and won't be back here. Whaleswatch.com will be a better choice.
We are sorry to see that this guest was disappointed with their accommodations this time around. The prices for our homes fluctuate depending on a variety of factors including time of year and occupancy rate. Please check our rates calendar to find a time that works best for you, or we are happy to help our guests find other options that better fit in their budgets. A deck repair is scheduled for this fall, a new hair dryer is in the unit, and there are plans to replace the deck chairs and clean out the shed.
Amazingly comfortable! Great view, and all the comforts and convenience of home.
Nice little getaway right on the ocean. The cottage was clean and stocked with all you might need except bring your own pans to cook with, those that were there were in very poor condition, Teflon mostly gone, everything stuck. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
Great place to relax and watch the waves. Walk to the beach is short. One of our best vacations. Thank you
Place was very clean and very well stocked. Great ocean view and beach access was right across the street. Nice open concept. Kitchen was small and a little dated but useable. Would definetly stay here again!
Great place and especially if you want to take your pets:)
We spent three days with daughter and a 5 and 2 year old. Location wonderful and house is perfect for children. Very secluded area, very charming, loved it!
It was a perfect fit for a family of 5 with a small dog. proximity to the beach was great. The Golf at Sand Pines and the Casino made it a great Spring Break trip.
We loved the view and easy access to beach. Very comfortable. Had everything we needed.
My husband and I had a really nice time. Perfect location and beautiful sunsets.
This is such a great place. Always clean, great views of the ocean and sunsets. Highly recommend Pelican's Perch. Beds are very comfortable.
Nice small house at beach at north end of Florence (there is another house in front of this one, but still have good unobstructed view to the northwest of the sea and beach). About 30 yards and you are in the sand! Well equipped, bring wood for the wood stove it gives great heat. We cooked in and also ate out, and enjoyed both. Florence's restaurant scene is getting better and offers several good choices. Pet friendly, no pet odors that we noticed.
We just love the Pelican Perch,it is cozy and comfortable. It has easy access to the beach and even my Mom who's 88 can take her walker down to the beach. Been coming here for years and it is just wonderful. Thank you. The Mellingers
We have stayed at Pelicans Perch many many times. Its comfortable, well supplied, and there is a beautiful beach view with easy access. NICE!
A wonderful 2 bedroom 2 bath steps from beach
Beds were comfortable
Ride to shop quite easy
Love it here
Hope to be a returning guest!!
Very Pet Friendly! The view is amazing just wish we could have stayed longerðŸ˜Š
I have had the pleasure of staying at pelicans perch with my best friend for the last 4 years. It has been great ! Also , I have appreciated the services of your former organization , and now you Vacassa for the last six years.
This time, we had a lovely stay at The Florence property. There were several nice additions from last year, including coffee cups An updated master bathroom. we would have appreciated a more usable grill , but my only complaint is somewhat serious. We looked for deck chairs in the shed and found two plastic chairs and two folding chairs. The folding chairs where Rusty, and we shouldn't have used them. However, when we sat down and one of them, it broke to the floor and my friend landed on her hip and hurt both her hip a bruised her shoulder. So I will report to you that the chair is broken . The other chair I left in the shed. But I would suggest that it be replaced. With the exception of that experience we enjoyed ourselves very much
Such a perfect place! Nice and cozy!!
Our stay had a mix of sunny and rainy weather. This house allowed us to enjoy the beach during both types of weather. The front porch is a wonderful place to view the sunset.
We are so pleased to know that you enjoyed their stay with us. The weather on the Oregon Coast is definitely unpredictable, that's why many say "Wait 5 minutes and it'll change!". Sunsets and storm watching are both fantastic from the front of the house. Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us. We hope to see you again soon!
This is my 2nd time to this beach cottage. The view is the best and you can't get any easier beach access for hours of walking and exploring. It is the most wonderful experience to stay at this cozy clean cottage. We cooked in the kitchen and had all the pots and pans we needed. We had a great time.
very clean and great view
Nice big windows to view the ocean and sunset. Easy access to a beautiful beach. If you get out to the beach early enough you will find lots of sand dollars about 100 to 300 feet from the jetty. I have stayed at Pelicans Perch for many years and its now much cleaner and better stocked with paper products, soap etc. then it has ever been. Was pleased with this last visit in February 2015, because there was even fire wood!!
From the time I found Vacasa in my search for a place on the coast for Christmas until the end of my stay, the staff was wonderful. The cottage was exactly as advertised and I'm looking forward to going back soon.
We are so happy to hear you had a great time at the Pelicans Perch! Thank you for your feedback! We hope to see you again soon.
have stayed there many times and plan on going back.
Overall my family had an amazing time beautiful house beautiful view easy access to the beach what more can you as for! We will definetly stay here again!
Pelican's Perch is located right across the street from the beach. You could sit on the front porch and have a great ocean view. There is a railing on the porch with gates so our dog could be on the porch without her leash. The access to the beach was really easy. There weren't many people on the beach. The house had pretty much everything we needed to prepare meals. It was very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to your next visit.
We had a very relaxing time at Pelicans Perch in Florence, OR.
The house has good views of the beach and ocean, and is
a 20 second walk to the beach access path. The wood stove works
very well and the house is cozy and inviting.
We keep coming back to this place for very simple reasons: location, clean and simple cabin with all the necessary equipment ( washer/dryer, TV/Internet, cooking utensils,books and games) Very quiet location and short drive to many restaurants, casino, Dunes and drives up and down the beautiful Oregon coast. Special mention: The waterfront Depot(make reservation) Moe's and The Best Thai Restaurant. Looking forward to our next visit!
We loved this Florence, Oregon, beach house - with views to the ocean right out the front windows. Great location and reasonably priced.
This Vintage cottage is right across the street from the beach with an awesome view. The beach is flat with easy access and we spent many hours walking and picking up shells. The porch is perfect to sit on with a glass of wine to watch the sunset. The kitchen had everything you need to cook a couple of meals except for the food itself. Bring your own wood for the woodstove it is not provided. At the time we stayed the Bar B Q needed replaced but as stocked as the rest of the cottage was I am sure it will be replaced right away. We will be back soon to this restful cottage.
Thank you for this kind review of your stay. It's so nice to hear that you were able to enjoy walking on the beautiful beach and that you enjoyed sunsets over the ocean from the deck. We just put in a new BBQ this past weekend so future guests will be able to enjoy grilling!
Great place. This is the third time we've been there, and I'm sure we'll return. Management staff was very helpful and communicative.
We love hearing from guests who come back to a home for another stay! It's wonderful that you enjoy the home and we look forward to visit #4! Thanks for the feedback.
It's incredible to have the beach right outside your front door. The house is well furnished and very cozy and comfy. This was our second stay at Pelican's Perch and will definitely be back for a third time.
Thank you for coming back for another visit! We love to hear that you enjoy this home on the beach. See you next time!
Enjoyed the stay in a warm and well decorated place, that is close to beach and town. I could not find a map of Florence any where in the house. Bummer.
This house is wonderful.... very comfortable and very close to the beach.
This place is so adorable. We drank our morning coffee while looking out at the ocean on the front deck, walked along the almost empty beach and had a fabulous seafood dinner in Florence. The neighbors were friendly and the fire is warm. We cannot wait to visit again!
Stayed here several times. Love it!
