Elegant home with stunning ocean views & steaming private hot tub. Dogs okay!

When you need a little R&R on the Oregon Coast, come stay at this lovely three-bedroom Florence vacation home! Located right at Heceta Beach, just about six miles north of downtown Florence, the Sandy Spur vacation home offers ocean views, a private hot tub, and a secret hideaway in the "tower" - a spot that's just perfect for kids to play and read. And only a block or so away, there's a path right down to the beach!

From the living room's large picture windows you'll have a view of the waves rolling in. Make yourself a cup of tea in the afternoon and enjoy the views right from one of the comfy, plush brown sofas. At night, you can light some candles near the mantle, turn on the flat screen TV, and relax with a little cable or a DVD. There's also WiFi here so you'll be able to stay connected.

The outdoor deck is an ideal place to enjoy the breeze and the fresh ocean air. A small table can hold drinks or snacks and there are chairs for catching up and socializing while enjoying the outdoor view.

Under the beautiful slanted wood ceilings of the living and dining rooms, there's a lot of space to spread out and enjoy your vacation. The dining table will seat six, plus there's additional seating at the breakfast bar if needed. Right near the table, a shiny granite counter-topped kitchen awaits the chef in your group! There's space for making breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as everything in between. And don't worry, there's even a dishwasher to make cleaning up as easy as possible.

One bedroom is set up with a twin-over full bunk beds and and a sleeper sofa - perfect for the younger guests (or kids of all ages). Another bedroom has a brightly covered queen sized bed with picture windows and a dresser, while the third bedroom has another queen bed, lots of space, and ample closets. This home will comfortably sleep up to nine vacationers, plus dog guests are welcome (though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply).

A bonus tower room is another spot that kids will love. This octagonal-shaped space is the perfect place to curl up with books, puzzles or games. There are also one and a half bathrooms located throughout the house as well as a washer and dryer - so everyone can always have clean clothes! There is even a private hot tub, so feel free to take a luxurious soak in the warm water after a long day of vacationing.

On nice days, the path to the beach is just down the street. Once out on the sand, you can stroll along the 10-mile stretch of beach admiring the rolling waves. Before you head off down the path, pack a picnic and spend he whole day right near the water's edge. Or walk along the sand for a few minutes to the Surfside Restaurant for a meal with a view on days you don't feel like preparing a meal back at the house.

Seeking adventures while on vacation? Visit an inland lake or the Siuslaw River with your fishing gear, or head out to the ocean for some deep sea fishing - there are charters that leave daily right from the coast at Florence and Coos Bay. Less than an hour's drive south is the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area where you can observe the ATVs and dune buggies as the navigate the sand.

There's nothing that says you can't just spend your days lounging at the beach or making the short six mile drive to the Old Town section of Florence. Wander galleries or stop by the Beachcomber Tavern for fish and chips, or the the Waterfront Depot for their famous crab-crusted halibut.

This Florence vacation rental will make your Oregon Coast getaway a memorable one, whether you fish, look for shells on the beach, or just enjoy the ocean views from this home's cozy living room.

The cabin has a really unique layout, with fun decor. It's kind of a cross between western and coastal design. The large room downstairs was great for the kids, they had a blast playing foosball. They also loved the loft upstairs. The place was clean and well stocked. It's just a quick walk down to the beach. The only negatives were that the fireplace is nonfunctional and that there was no laundry detergent to wash clothes with. Otherwise I would highly recommend this cabin.
Kris N. Sep 2018
Nice quiet location, spacious home with all the amenities. Beautiful views of the ocean and a 2 min walk to the beach.
Mohammed A. Jun 2018
I stayed two nights in this place and we loved very much. Although, the weather was cold and windy, we found everything entertainment we need at the home. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for even professional chief.

Overall it was a great experience.
Loreto G. May 2018
Hot tub was great, kitchen well supplied, cleanliness better than most places I've stayed. Not as close to beach as I would of liked it. Pricey for the holiday weekend. Small, does sleep 9 but when everyone is up in living room /dining/kitchen area it was pretty crowded. Overall it was good, we had lots of fun.
Caleb S. May 2018
Relaxing place, nice and quiet at the end of the street. Well-equipped kitchen. Nice hot tub.
Mykal L. Apr 2018
House was in great shape will stay again.
Angie M. Feb 2018
Clean bedding and kitchen. Hot tub and views were great. Quirky house floor plan, but we enjoyed that. Not high-end fancy but homey and confortable. Musty/moldy downstairs and could be an issue for some.
Manager Response:
We have performed a deep clean of the home and were unable to find any mold. Thank you!
Taunya R. Dec 2017
We enjoyed a weekend get away and the house was great for hosting a family dinner. Awesome Location! Only downside was no master bedroom/bathroom.
Matt C. Oct 2017
The house was exactly as described, probably even better. The kids had a great time, we walked to the beach every day. amenities were fine, condition of the house was fine, I've stayed at lesser-quality rentals for more money in the past. Cant wait to go back to this place again in the future!
TABATHA M. Oct 2017
Good location, close access to the beach if you don't mind walking a little ways. Less than five minutes away is Heceta Beach with bathrooms and parking. (Parking is $4 per day). There are a lot of good restaurants for take-out or dine in in town. We did a little of both since we have a 1 year old and it's easier to eat at home sometimes.
I didn't realize there were stairs in the home when booking but there was a baby gate available for use. It was broken but we were able to rig it to work well enough and watched him really well around the stairs. There was an animal smell that started to get noticeable after the second day being there. I did mention it to them so maybe they will be able to clean it.
The hot tub was great for relaxing and very clean. Washer and Dryer are dated but still work quite well. We were provided plenty of laundry soap, dishwasher soap, etc. so I didn't have to bring a lot of dirty clothes home which is always rough after coming home from vacation.
We had one car and one truck with an atv trailer and we both fit well in the parking area. I don't think anything else would be able to fit so this isn't a good location if you have multiple people bringing atv's to ride. The sand dunes are about a ten minute drive from here so that was really nice.
I may not stay here again just because for me and my family it didn't work out but I'm sure it will for others. But I will definitely rent another home again because not having to deal with hotels was so nice!
James U. Sep 2017
Water didn't drain out of shower, house smells strongly of mold, doors broken, very poorly supplied kitchen, disfunctional furniture, broken fireplace, bbq worked but no handle, spa not clean and cover lift broken, uncomfortable beds. Coukd be a nice place but lacjs longterm TLC. Mold smell was very hard to deal with.
Manager Response:
We appreciate having the opportunity to share with our guests what has been done regarding the comments in this review. The shower drain has been cleared. No mold was found, but steps were taken to freshen things up. All doors are working, and the kitchen has all necessary supplies. The furniture is older, but it is all acceptable as well. The fireplace is not an advertised/listed amenity and has a sign stating it cannot be used. We apologize if this was a disappointment. The hot tub is clean and does not have an arm lift, and the beds are in good condition. Thank you!
Donna M. Aug 2017
Great for a family. Spacious, close to beach, everything you need to make a meal at home. and lots of entertaining activities for the kids within the home
Carleton T. Aug 2017
Enjoyed but could be better
Jenette R. Jul 2017
This place charges about $150/night EXTRA to stay here. For this, you can count on being greeted with grimy floors, non-functional kitchen supplies (pots, pans, knives), and freezing, since the thermostat doesn't work and other heating elements provided are so old you'll be afraid to run them while you sleep.
Kelly B. Jul 2017
We stayed July 11-14, 2017. The kitchen is not fully stocked for the 6 or more possible guests; dishes yes, pots and pans, no. Location is just outside of Florence but still very convenient to shops and a quick drive downtown. The beach is a short 2 to 3 blocks. Overall a great day, great view, and plenty to do in the area
Kenneth W. Jun 2017
Overall stay was great neighborhood great location the people that live in the area get to know them very friendly and helpful. I will come back again great stay .
Rachel T. May 2017
loved the quiet end of the road where the house sits. 2 minute walk to the beach. we didn't even get a full run of the house with just the two of us. this would be a great house for a family to enjoy all the house has to offer. I recommend getting in the hot tub since you pay for it. we didn't get the chance. all the luxuries of home, fred meyer, a short distance away. the beach/gift bag was a nice touch too. can't wait to get back down to Florence.
Carron G. Apr 2017
Loved: extremely close to ocean with easy access for kids, kitchen was nice with lots of appliances, beds were comfortable, house was clean, playroom was fantastic. Hot tub was hot.
Not so loved: fireplace needs a safety covering, noticed a fire alarm not in use at the end of our stay, heating is not even through the house (one room gets up to 80 degrees if the thermostat is set to 72), and it's difficult to monitor nook use/safety with kids under 7 due to the steep ladder. All furnishings up there are solid, though. Lots of chlorine appeared to be added to the hot tub right before we got there but it was so strong, that we couldn't get in until late. Lastly, there was no laundry detergent for us to start a load, so we had to buy our own.

Hope this helps!
HOLLY J. Mar 2017
We went for a friends escape and after we left have now decided this needs to be a yearly vacation for us
Casey R. Mar 2017
Had a great 3 night stay. Perfect for younger kids. Would stay there again.
Gail R. Feb 2017
The hot tub is not in the picture but it is on the side and has an ocean view. Nice quiet neighborhood. The end of the road location is also the beginning of a line of trees, so less windy.
Margo E. Feb 2017
nice view, wish couches were better so you didn't sink down so low you couldn't see out windows very good, good location to travel around town from and also be close to beach, good neighborhood, nice having hot tub, enjoyed trip with friends, lots of laughs
Phyllis B. Nov 2016
Lots of maintenance issues - not safe for children under 6 as there is a ladder to the playroom. We have stayed at other locations in Florence and this one was no where near the quality of the others.
Manager Response:
The Property Manager has done a walk through of the home and completed several maintenance items that were waiting to be done. Thanks!
Jim S. Oct 2016
I've always loved Florence, been traveling on work on the coast for nearly 30 years. The downside of the area is the number of beach access points, but once on the beach it is fantastic. This house is just a very short walk to a nice beach access and not too crowded. You can see the ocean nicely from the main room and you can definitely hear the ocean roar from the deck.
Christy M. Oct 2016
Great house! Good location. Well stocked kitchen. Very comfortable.
Deryk R. Sep 2016
Was exactly as advertised. Clean, cozy, and close to the beach. Nice for a short getaway.
Rachel F. Sep 2016
Enjoyed the house! Wasn't there very much. House was clean and great for what we needed. The view from the loft and living room was beautiful. Only complaint. Wish there was a light source by the hot tub area.
Charles M. Sep 2016
This was probably a nice home originally. Sadly, it needs a lot of TLC. The photos on the website don't really show the overall condition of the house. There should not be a photo of a fireplace if the fireplace does not work. We used two of the bedrooms. One bed was very uncomfortable according to our friends who stayed with us. The kitchen is fairly well furnished but could use a cutting board and salad spinner. The refrigerator was turned off and smelled fishy. Only one of the two ice cube trays was functional. The faucets in the half bath make a loud noise when turned on. There is only so much the house keeping staff can do. The owners need to invest some resources in this property. We would consider a different house using Vacasa but definitely would not rent or recommend this one again. We loved playing golf at Sandpines but will look for a different property to rent next time.
Manager Response:
We are very sorry to see that not getting to use the fireplace was a disappointment. The owners have asked that we not allow guests to use it, and it is not advertised as an amenity. A cutting board has been supplied, the ice trays have been replaced, and the fridge thermostat just needed to be adjusted. The owners make updates every winter; we look forward to sharing with our guests what this winter brings!
JOHN W. Aug 2016
Thoughtfully prepared. That is the phrase I would use to describe our stay here. We spent five nights in the home and loved our time there. We had a newborn, three teenagers along with my niece, her husband and their son. Not to mention our two dogs. We all managed well enough under one roof with our sleeping arrangements and it never felt crowded. The house was clean and thoughtful amenities including a foosball table, lots of games and movie channels for cold blustery nights. The kitchen was outfitted with all we needed. The BBQ grille was clean and ready for use. The hot tub was a total hit ! The big concrete driveway was great for Razor Scooters. Beach access was an easy two block walk through the sleepy neighborhood. The house was clean, with plenty of bath and beach towels. Beds were comfy. Great stay! Would recommend to anyone with a larger family who need a great getaway on somewhat of a budget. Avg cost per night including pets, taxes and fees was $340 and a hotel would have been more based on the nine people in our party.
Tabitha R. Aug 2016
This place was great. We rented it for work instead of a hotel. It was perfect.
Gayle R. Aug 2016
Nice place. We enjoyed our stay.
9 of us stayed there, ages 1-60. Lots to keep the children (of all ages) busy.
Margaret H. Aug 2016
The house was in a good location, was clean and well appointed. Close to a great beach. We had eight people and there was plenty of room.
Farrah S. Jul 2016
Really appreciated this property enjoyed our stay. Great views
TAMMY C. Jul 2016
We had a wonderful time in this great house. The three kids each had their own beds and loved the game room. The kitchen was fully equipped and the view from the table was fabulous!
Patricia B. May 2016
Maybe because we are seniors we expect more for the money we are paying too rent this house. We looked forward to enjoying our evening with a fire, watching the ocean and good glass of wine. Well we did enjoy the wine.
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see that there appear to have been disappointments with this stay; we would be happy to hear any specific feedback that can make this property even better.
Sarah F. Apr 2016
Staying at the Sandy Spur was wonderful! It had everything we needed for a relaxing and fun filled weekend!
Shaun M. Apr 2016
Very nice little house. Well furnished and close to everything we wished to do/see.
Rachael L. Mar 2016
Very nice house. Great place for a family with kids due to the large kids' bedroom. Overall very clean inside. The kitchen does not have good lighting, plus two of the existing light bulbs were burned out, so if you like to cook much, this could be challenging. The large blender was broken, they were out of laundry soap, only two garbage bags for 5 days, just a few little things that say someone needs to pay a little more attention to stocking things. But nothing that overshadowed that this is a nice, clean house and we had a great time.
Manager Response:
We really appreciate you leaving your review and sharing your feedback about the home. We let our property manager know about the blender, lights and stocking issues and they will make sure that they wont be a problem going forward. Thank you again for staying with Vacasa.
Jeff G. Mar 2016
We loved the house! Very cozy and fun! Our kids loved the fooseball table and tower room and we all loved the hot tub and the view. Awesome location! So nice to be able to walk down to the beach in 5-10 minutes.
John W. Mar 2016
Went with our two small children and had a blast. We went in the rainy cold season and it was great having the downstairs play room for the kids to be in or watch a movie while we hung out upstairs watching movies. It was also great to spend a little time at the beach and come back freezing cold to get in the hot tub. My kids would say that a rinse off station (preferably warm) would be highly recommended for instances such as these where I used the garden hose to clean them off before hopping in.
Ketti W. Mar 2016
Vacant was very helpful and easy to work with. We enjoyed working with the company
Jacqueline S. Mar 2016
We had a very relaxing stay. Had an ocean view and access to beach was nearby. The kitchen was well stocked with all the dishes and utensils, which was very handy as we cooked. Would stay again.
Jammie A. Feb 2016
We loved the Sandy Spur and are already making plans for future visits with friends and family!!
Marlene P. Feb 2016
Had everything we needed to complete a great weekend!
Jody C. Feb 2016
Top of a hill, at the dead end of the street, beautiful views, sound of the ocean to soothe you to sleep. Large hot tub, very clean and so relaxing. Modern and such a beautiful kitchen. Home away from home. I'll be coming back!
Paul & Terry K. Jan 2016
stayed at this home for two nights with my girl friends for one of the girls was getting married, we are all older. all of us felt comfortable safe, and relaxed, we had a great ocean view and not far to the beach access, price was reasonable . Beds in family room need new mattresses, bu the rest of the house was wonderful. I would recommend this place to anyone who wanted to feel at home.
Cheryl B. Jan 2016
Very nice. Short walk to the beach. All enjoyed themselves.
Sarah R. Sep 2015
If you are looking for a place on a great beach that is not fancy, and can hold a lot of people, this could be the perfect place for you. We stayed in the house with two couples, and five children ages 8 and under! The game room is completely separate from other parts of the house, and around the corner from the two bedrooms, which are also downstairs. In addition to the twin over full bunk and the pull out couch in the game room, there is also a twin pull out bed in the closet of the larger bedroom and a queen bed in each bedroom. This is a pet friendly house, so it had the slight smell of wet dog when we arrived, and we did find some dog fur stuck to the baseboards. Not immaculate, and only one full bath with very low water pressure. The mattresses in the two bedrooms are worn, but a step above a pull out bed. The kitchen is fantastic, with all the modern amenities, and the view from the living room is incredible! The beach is straight down the hill, with the turnoff to the beach trail a few blocks down from the house. So, if you are looking for a romantic getaway, or super well maintained place, this might not be for you. If you just want a place close to the beach with all the necessities, and a worn, "beachy" vibe, you will probably love this place! We had a great time!
Gail B. Jun 2015
you say there is plenty of room for a quad trailer but, if your quad trailer holds more than two there is not. We came with a pick up truck, trailer and a motor home- nowhere to park. Thankfully the neighbor let us park our motor home in their front yard-yikes!!
Travis R. Jun 2015
My fiancé and I stayed here for vacation to get away from the stress of everyday life. What a fantastic location to do so. Not only does the home feel welcoming upon driving up, it's inviting from the moment you enter. We enjoyed the tower that had the wonderful views. I enjoyed the well appointed kitchen and he enjoyed the wonderful selection of television channels! We walked just a couple blocks and were able to walk right out to the beach. We will be staying here for further vacations in Florence. We just loved sandy spur!!
Kimberly A. May 2015
The house is very nice and cozy decorated very nice! Be aware that the kitchen and living room are upstairs. The two bedrooms The house is very nice and cozy decorated very nice! Be aware that the kitchen and living room are upstairs. I would love to stay here again!
Donna O. May 2015
Beautiful home, beautiful weather, already looking forward to next time.
Janine K. Apr 2015
Kids LOVED the high turret! Beautiful ocean view from living room. Well-equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds and cute decorations in the bedrooms. A huge and fantastic beach is just 3 blocks away. Some things are a little worn out (towels), but this place is a LOT of fun!
Manager Response:
Thank you for your great review! We are so glad you and your family had a great time here. The views are stunning and this home is perfect for families! I have passed on your great feedback to the local property manager. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Lanika M. Mar 2015
2 families stayed here comfortably, if you have a small child bring a baby gate! other than that it was a wonderful experience. The person who did our reservations was especially courteous and even saved us money!
Julie C. Dec 2014
We loved our stay here. My 12-year-old son is saying, "It's awesome!" The house has separate spaces (game room, pillow tower) where children can be separate from adults. The view was beautiful and our old dog was able at climb the wide, carpeted, spiral staircase. The kitchen is very well stocked, but you might want to bring your own sharp knives. Though advertised that it sleeps 9, it only has three bedrooms; the game room can sleep 5. We would return.
Patrick S. Sep 2014
Looks like a recent upgrade/remodel of kitchen was completed- very nice. Well stocked with essentials. Definitely would stay here again!
