The home was cozy and very nice. Has all everything you need. The locally is a short drive to the beach and downtown. I would defiantly go there again
We enjoyed our stay very much especially with 2 large dogs with us. It’s a bit dated and the beach isn’t as close as we were told. Yes he walk to the beach was through a massive amount of sand dunes and we had a very hard time getting there. So t was great having a kitchen, a washer and dryer and the bed was comfortable. We only used 1 bedroom. It was also nice having a gas bar b que which we used a few times. It was dirty, we had to clean it, but that’s ok. We were glad it was there. Overall very nice stay for us and the dogs. We would probably stay again if returning to Florence. Good price for accommodations we thought☺️.
This, overall, was a great house for my family of four! My kids loved the bunk beds, the living room set up is very comfy and great for watching movies after a long day at the beach, and the location is amazing (it takes one minute to drive to the free parking lot next to Driftwood Shores)! There were a couple of issues: the dog smell in the house really hits you in the face when you walk in, but you do get used to it. Also, we found a dog ball under the coffee table when we moved it, so the table was clearly not moved to vacuum the rug. The beds are not the comfiest, but you cannot beat the price and the location! We will definitely stay there again on our next trip!
When you walk in the house, you know your dogs are welcome. From the dog beds, dog bowls and leashes, if you didn't bring it, supplies are provided.
The description of the house to prospective renters should include a note that there are black bears in the area. The house's garbage can has a lock, which must be unlocked each time you place a bag of trash in it. We didn't know why, until we saw a bear about a week later (we rented the house for 28 days). During our stay, we saw two black bears in the area. This certainly wasn't a problem we were deeply concerned about, but we wish we had known.
The house is relatively clean and has all the basic household supplies you need for a stay.
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and have notified the local manager of your suggestions. We hope to host you again soon!
Our family had a great time in this home. We loved how dog friendly it was, the fenced yard in the back was very convenient and secure. The house was equipped with everything we needed, and it was an easy walk to the beach. Took off one star because the queen bed In the second bedroom was pretty horrible. The mattress is totally caved in in the middle. We actually went and bought our own foam mattress topper to attempt to make it a bit more comfortable, since we were staying for a week.
Thank you for staying with us! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear that the bed was not well-suited to your sleeping preference. We like our guests to have a relaxing experience, and we apologize if this impacted the enjoyment of your stay. We hope you choose to stay with us again!
Clean and close to the beach for the price!
Our family of 6 stayed there. We enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean when we got there and had just about everything we needed.
The house was amazing. It was super clean and had all the amenities we needed. We should have brought some plastic wrap, foil or baggies but we made it work. We brought our 4 dogs and they enjoyed it as well. I would definitely recommend and hope to rent it again in the future.
House is fine, but at least 15’ walk (along roadways, not trails) to get to Heceta Beach
The floors were dirty and had dog hair. The bedroom sheets was covered in dog hair as well. The outdoor trash wasn’t taken out prior to our stay and had a really bad smell. Other then that it was a cozy place and had waking access to the beach
We are sorry to read housekeeping did not meet our high cleanliness standards. Please feel free to call in situations like this so we can send staff out to correct the matter and improve your stay. We hope to see you again. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
So I hate to give three stars because it was a very nice little house but a good night's sleep is important when you are on vacation. If I could do three and a half I would. The complaint is the king size bed that was so hard I woke up sore everyday and got very little sleep and the pillows were very flat. The dog friendly part is 5 stars for this place. Lots of dog beds and dishes in case you forget yours which I loved. I liked the kitchen and utensils. There was even some things like salt and pepper! Awesome 👍 the room with the bunk beds and queen bed where we put the kids was great except a lack of tv which is important to get everyone to wind down but the kids didn't complain about those beds. The BBQ outside is great! Problem is the backdoor handle is broken and doesn't stay on. I was bummed because I saw this complaint in a previous review and it wasn't fixed. The location of the house is great. A few blocks from everything. The beach, coffee (ocean grinds.....yum) and food. It's in this little hidden neighborhood which is cute but the driveway is at such an angle getting my big truck in and out was a challenge but not impossible. I wouldn't recommend trying to bring a trailer with toys here. If they get a mattress topper for the king bed and fix the backdoor handle I would stay again. I would not sleep on that bed as it is again though. Last thing the very late check in 4pm and very early check out. 10am is early to get that many people moving. I asked for late check out and was told no. I get the turn over part but 10-4 are a lot of hours to clean a small place (I own a housekeeping business). This could be quiet the gem with a few small details though.
Hi, Stacy! We are glad to see your stay was mostly enjoyable at BLK Beach House. We are discussing mattress options with the owner, and the property manager is fixing the door knob. We do apologize these were issues for you during your vacation. Thank you for staying with us!
Quiet, could hear the ocean, felt like home, VERY comfortable bed. Close to everything in Florence
Great location. About a 3 minute walk to the beach or a 30 second drive if hauling gear. House is clean with nice seating in the living area, very comfortable for 4 adults. Any more would be to crowded. Backyard great for the dogs to do their business without having to leash up. Would be nice if the backyard porch light was repaired, obviously out for some time. Kitchen is very well equipped with just enough counter space. Jerry's Bar next store very welcoming and food is above average for bar fare. Will stay there again if we revisit the area.
Everything is as it looks in the pictures. It was perfect for our stay. Driveway is easy to miss if your showing up for the first time In the dark, just a heads up
Wow! We were impressed and so happy with our stay. The location is fabulous, just out of town but not too far and an easy walk to the beach access at driftwood shores resort which we found to be popular but not overcrowded. We were able to walk a few minutes down the beach in either direction for some space to run the dog! Right next to Jerry's Place which was perfect for a simple dinner our first night there. The house itself is clean, especially for a dog friendly place. No signs of dog hair on the furniture, bedding or floor, and they had lots of little touches like dog beds and dog bowls under the sink that made it extra dog friendly. The backyard was free of dog poop and had a nice sturdy fence that made it easy to let the pup come and go without being stuck inside the whole vacation. Beds were super comfy and plenty of them. We were super happy with our stay and hope to return again soon. Cable was a plus as we were able to enjoy Christmas movies we don't get at home.
Cute house, nice layout. Nice fenced backyard for the dogs. Quiet location. Close to the beach.
We realy enjoy our Time at the House
Everything you Need was there
It was very clean and cozy and the Beach was only a few min walk
It was also very comfortable
But please do not forget or leave anything behind
The house was great, it was comfortable and inviting. A very short easy walk to the beach and close to town. Nice and quiet and private. There were a couple of easy repairs that need to be attended to. The toilet mount is loose. The coffee table and bench seat at the dining table need all of the screws tightened. They are falling out and it makes them rickety. A simple fix. Some deep cleaning needs to be done. Looks like the cleaning crew is really doing the bare minimum. All in all it was a nice little home close to the beautiful beach.
We will address your feedback with the local staff. Thank you for your feedback Samuel! We look forward to hosting you again.
House was clean and comfortable. Quiet neighborhood. A bit of a hike to the beach. No AC or fans provided, we had to buy one. Driveway is a challenge with a large vehicle, steep and hard to get out of. Could use some maitenence on the Windows and showerhead.
Thank you for your feedback! We have passed this information along to our local staff. We'll make sure to perform any necessary maintenance. We hope to host you again soon!
Dog friendly, clean and comfortable! Short walk to beautiful Heceta Beach.
The moment we walked through the door we immediately began to relax. The home had nice updates, it was incredibly clean, and you could hear the sound of the waves from any room in the house. The fenced in yard fit our needs perfectly because we brought along our fur baby. The home was so inviting, we couldn't have asked for a better stay.
Very impressed with this dog-friendly place. All the amenities, a bit of a trek to the beach, but doable. Clean and comfortable. Was a teensy bit hard to find in the dark. Suffered a little sticker shock with the total fees on top of the rental.
This home was quaint and nicely decorated. We instantly felt warmth and comfortability when we arrived. Four adults with one bathroom was alittle tough at times but have the ability to cook and do our laundry was well worth it. There isn’t a tv in the queen/bunt bed room so reading was an option in there. Nice sized yard for a dog also! We’d DEFINITELY love to stay again!
This house was perfect for us! Very comfortable and just what we needed for our trip to the coast. The back yard was ideal for the pup. Location was close to the beach as well as town.
we spent a short time in Florence recently and this little slice of heaven was perfect for us. a solid fenced back yard was great for our four legged child, huckleberry loved it and we knew he was secure. The home was neat and clean with everything you needed for a nice getaway at the beach.
Very well maintained and cozy home. I was completely satisfied with the stay. Will stay again.
This was a very well maintained and well stocked accommodation for the traveler who wants to be able to use this rental as an extension of home. It had all the eating ware and kitchen tools necessary to prepare most any meal. There were comfortable couches and seating in the living area with a large screen TV and lots of accessible cable channels. The place is maintained in a spotless condition and best of all, it is a pet friendly place with a fenced yard for your four-legged family members to get out side and explore and take care of business.
I look forward to staying her again on my next visit.
We felt as if we were at home. We came and gone as we pleased. The house was clean and fully stocked with cooking utensils and anything else we needed. Next time we vacation our family will make sure to go through Vacasa!
Comfortable close to the things we wanted to do. Hersey tenderhearted.
This place was very clean, quiet and cute! The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. I will definitely be staying at this house again in the future.
Smaller in size but worked perfectly for our annual trip to Florence! There was 6 of us total. The kitchen has everything we needed and more. Very clean and comfy.
Great location to the beach once we asked people in the area how to do all there. Your best bet is to walk to the resort down the road to access the beach, 5 minute walk. Clean house, fully stocked kitchen. Bring your own food of course. Light on the washer/dryer supplies. The cable was disconnected from the tv and from the cable box. While waiting for 20 minutes on the phone for the rental agencies help, we took it all apart and figured it out for ourselves. Twice we tried to contact customer support and never got through. It was a good location for us to explore the area.
Well stocked and pretty clean, roomy enough for what we needed. It was insufferably hot the first evening as it’d Been closed up and there’s zero daytime/afternoon shade, no fans and no a/c. The heat was off the whole time we were there and the coolest the place got was about 70 degrees after all windows open all night long on a 55 degree night. Beds were comfortable and linens clean. Kitchen was clean and tidy. Driveway was odd and took some practice as the entrance and street are narrow. Bar is literally right next door, which is alright if you want to walk home, not so much if you don’t want to hear it at 11pm with the windows open.
The quietness of home,Also all the comforts of home
It was far bigger than expected with comfortable beds, stocked kitchen and bathroom, dog friendly everything and the heaven for vegging on the couch or only a few minutes away from some of the best beaches.
My family loved it Great space kids love their room had everything we needed. Loved that it had kid activities and it was a better price than a hotel and we had the freedom to come and go as we pleased. Didnt have to deal with anyone. We would come back
My buddy and I go on a golf vacation every year and this place was perfect for it. Great place to relax after playing 18 and having a bar right next door was pretty awesome. The queen bed was a little uncomfortable but definitely not a deal breaker.
Had a wonderful time. the house was very pet friendly. Would stay here again next time in Florence.
This suited our needs of a family of 6 just fine. Great location. Some neighbors pointed us to some “hobbit trails” that lead to the beach. Super cute walk. The backyard had lots of dog poop (we didn’t bring any dogs), there was no wine opener, and the batteries were dead in the remote for the bedroom tv, but those were small inconveniences. Good reminder that I should always have a wine opener on hand! Lol. Oh and the check out procedures were completely hassle-free compared to some places. We’d totally go back.
The issues presented in this review will be discussed with housekeeping with follow-up training as well.
The house was clean and cute and everything we needed for a fun weekend get away and a real reasonable rate.
Since we were charged an additional housekeeping fee, I would have thought floors would be clean. I dropped a pill on the floor by the table and was amazed at the debris along the baseboard. Also the bathroom floor had stuff that didn't get vacuumed. It would have been nice to have trash liners in the wastebaskets and trash can. While we didn't use any of the pet supplies, it was nice to have them available.
We stayed two nights while exploring quilt shops from Newport to Port Orford. After being gone all day we loved how quickly the house warmed up. The fenced backyard is something that is not always available in pet friendly listings —very nice. Everything was super clean; check in and out was smooth and easy. We’re glad we chose this listing!
This is our second stay. The home is an easy walk to the beach or a short drive to the jetty road. It is also an easy drive into town. We found the home to be a comfortable place to stay on a vacation. Pet friendly works well since we travel with our two Cairn terriers. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Haceta beach. On the negative, we found that a previous visitor obviously had a very large dog that left seven large piles out in the fenced yard. As responsible pet owners we cleanup after our pets. I feel that the cleaning staff is letting the property owner down. Try moving a piece of furniture occasionally and either mop or vacuum under it. Between the sofa and the video cabinet there was enough pet hair to make a sweater. When we opened the washing machine the top of the tub and the agitator was covered with lint and sand, try using one of those towels you’re going to wash and wipe it off. Perhaps charging a $10 per poop fee for cleaning the yard and giving it to the cleaning staff would provide incentive to at least check the yard.
We are sorry to see there were some cleanliness issues with this stay. We have followed-up with housekeeping regarding completing more thorough cleans. Thank you!
The house is very clean and close to both the beach and town. However, it seems to be offered on a tight budget as the kitchen tools are extremely limited and the mattresses are as cheap as they come, after the first night we used the couches instead. There is no view of anything but a vacant lot so it's not a 'beach house' other than it is close to the ocean.
This house is FABULOUS! The house, the fenced yard, and listening to the ocean from the porch......this place has it all! Loved the pet beds and pet dishes, made our "fur" boys comfy!! We will be back as often as possible!!!
My children and our dog stayed over Christmas and enjoyed the space very much. The location is centralized in Florence, the cabin is set up for socializing, the fenced yard is wonderful for dogs and the price was wonderful. Really enjoyed the welcome bag filled with goodies from Vacasa and extra cleaning materials. Nice touch!!
Wonderful place to stay..and pet friendly
The only thing missing is a hor tub..
Other wise wonderful stay.
We haven’t been to Florence in 20 years, decided we were overdue. Fabulous house and lucked out in the mornings with dry weather for walks on the beach.
Love renting through vacasa, high quality.
The house was very clean, homey, and relaxing! The beds we're also very comfortable. Everything was really nice and we will come back in the future!
Nice place, close to beach, dogs loved it.
Nice enough place just did not get much sleep
The house was very clean with many of the necessities needed in a house. Fully furnished kitchen, washer/dryer, plenty of blankets and bedding.
Lovely little House!!
the pictures online are not correct, you have no beach view, and the parking area is steep and small.
it was clean, but the beds are not comfortable, one sags to the center.
We apologize for any confusion the pictures caused. The pictures show the nearby scenery, and the home is not advertised as having an ocean view.
We stayed at this house in Florence a few days ago. I was pleasantly surprised. My sister brought her dogs, so we needed a dog-friendly house. IT DID NOT SMELL LIKE DOGS AT ALL!!. The house was very clean with hardwood floors. It was well stocked with towels, blankets, cooking appliances and gadgets. We made dinner two of the nights we stayed there. The beach is only a few blocks away. And not too far away is a bar (Jerry's) -- if you are tired and want to pick up food to go. The bar was not noisy, though.
There is no yard or curb appeal, but if you want a clean place to stay that accepts dogs, this is the place to stay.
Lovely updated home close to the beach.
We enjoyed the stay and the home. Had everything we needed with the exception of a BBQ. Walking distance to the surf side restaurant and beach. The driveway is a little tricky if you have a larger vehicle. I was able to back down the hill into the spot so getting out was much easier.
Loved staying here. Modern, but cozy and very well kept. Cleaner than any hotel or beach house I have ever stayed at which gives it a 10 in my book!
Rugs were turned up on corners...potential tripping; drain in tub poor, when flushing the toilet, drains in tub and kitchen sink gurgled do to improper ventilation in plumbing; there was a leak under the bathroom sink which needed maintenance attention while staying; shower curtain needed to be bleached; broken drawers in both bedrooms; window nearest to dining area was inoperable; some blinds in horrible condition; coffee maker was broke (had to be replaced); internet access was incorrect on check in sheet; ants at the back entrance on the inside; back door only locked with dead bolt, not the door handle itself; bedroom door (queen/bunk bed room) didn't latch; floor vents were very dirty; mattresses sunk making for very sore neck/shoulders.
The property manager has resolved all of the guest's complaints, including some that were completed after they checked out. Thank you.
Upon entering the property there was a strong dog odor. The house had to be aired for several hours with all windows and doors open. I had to use fabreeze to neutralize the odor on the beds and couches. I liked having the washer and dryer, which were helpful to wash all blankets. The kitchen was very helpful and the dining table was very spacious. The mattress in the main bedroom was extremely uncomfortable, it felt much like swimming on a waterbed. My husband had to sleep on the floor most of the time. Furniture in living-room were very comfortable. The TVs were large and cable was basic. There was no reception on any of our cellphones, which made it difficult to communicate with the outside world. It did help that there was a land line. It was nice that we could walk to the beach. If you want to be truly separated from the world, this is the place to go.
We really enjoyed staying in the BLK house. It really lives up to the listing description. It is very clean, comfortable and matches the pictures exactly. The furniture was nice and comfortable. It felt private and peaceful. I really enjoyed having a fully fenced yard for our two dogs. There is some space around the house, so it felt fairly private and peaceful. There is a bar/restaurant pretty close by, but it wasn't noisy or too close for comfort. There is also a Fred Meyer a couple of minutes away, so that was very convenient.
We would definitely stay here again if we were going to stay in Florence again. No complaints whatsoever.
Sewer problems put a damper on use of property...
We had a septic company come investigate after receiving this review and they were not able to find any problems. We will keep an eye out in case that changes. Thank you!
Very clean and the kitchen really was fully equipped; right down to crab crackers and pizza pans.
The PERFECT place to stay if you have your furry friends with you.
We have been to Florence on 3 occasions now. We have family that lives there and will visit again. This is by far the best place we have stayed in within the area. It was clean and well equipped and has a comfortable feel. We will be staying there again on our next trip.
We have been coming to Florence for years and have stayed in multiple properties. This has been by far our favorite. The home is very comfortable and has plenty of supplies to fit almost any need! We appreciated the welcoming atmosphere and little extras for our dog and the fact that it has a fenced yard is AWE-SOME! We hope to be back again soon!
The Beach House is in a good location just a short drive north of town. If you want a quiet secluded spot with all of the amenities and plenty of space, this fits the need. The king bed is super comfortable and I also enjoyed taking naps on the comfy couch. The location is good to explore the coast going both north and south on 101. I would stay here again!
This small house is very cozy and welcoming for our Thanksgiving weekend while visiting family in the area. It is well equipped and was convenient to the beach. It was nice to be able to a place that was pet friendly as well.
It is in a sketchy area right next to a bar. It is a double wide trailer with no views out windows except for mud pit in the backyard. Also the place is dumpy. With all the extra fees we ended up paying over $200 a night could've stayed in a really nice hotel for that
We are disappointed to hear that this guest did not enjoy their accommodations. The pictures on the website show the architecture of the home; we apologize if this came as a surprise. There is a small bar up the road, but it has not been known to cause any problems or excess noise in the neighborhood.
The flooring is buckling, caused me to trip, the corners of a couple rugs are curled and caused me to trip a couple times in different places of the house!!! I called, I emailed pictures, I filled out a complaint form, and they have yet to call me back or even show a care in the world that their guest, me, got hurt due to the condition of the property.
We are very sorry to see that this guest encountered some tripping hazards while staying in this home. The Property Manager apologized to the guest regarding the matter. The buckled floor has been repaired and the rugs have been ironed out.
This little house was PERFECT for my husband and I and our two dogs. It's very pet friendly - FULLY fenced in yard (awesome), dog beds and bowls, towels for pets, as well as humans... all things that we really appreciated! There's a king sized bed in one bedroom and a full or queen, along with bunk beds in the second room - room to sleep 6 comfortably in beds. The kitchen looked newly updated and had everything we needed - maybe include a larger frying pan that doesn't stick quite so much. The location is a short drive to town and less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. You can hear the waves crashing from the porch! Very cute, very homey place! We loved it! :)
The house was very comfortable, clean, nice lay out, essentials were provided. We enjoyed the wifi and cable. We felt very at home. We would stay there again.
A fenced yard is a real plus for dog owners like us. It is a convenience not to have to put leashes on your dog and walk in the middle of the night. Jetty road was the closest and easiest access to the beach, where we spent a lot of time.
The house is a great place to stay. It's very comfortable and peaceful. Little noise from the bar above but not bad. It really feels like home in a short while. It's the kind of place you could stay in for several months. Location is great. Hearing the Ocean is wonderful. Sign us up again. Our dog loved it too!
Mlk we give it a 5 star, we enjoyed out time there. What you see in the pictures is exactly how it is. Beautiful decor cute place.
This was a trip with Grandkids and it was a great home. Not having an ocean view was not a problem as we werealways on the go!
Love it'...definitely going back!!!
This,was our second stay at this house and it was a pleasure to see all of the upgrades and changes since our last visit. We know there are other choices, but we love the privacy and the homey feeling this house has to offer. It's very well equipped and the seaside decor is fun and inviting. We will definitely be back and hope this home is available for our next stay.
A really lovely place to stay with friends of the human and canine variety -- quiet, well-appointed, and comfortable amenities.
Great dog friendly home near the beach & downtown Florence
This is a nice, simple home great for a family of four or five and close to the beach. The fact that they allow a dog(s) and make them feel very welcome with two dog beds provided was nice as well as a fenced in yard.
We enjoyed the beautiful Oregon beaches and especially the spectacular aquarium in Newport , as well as pretty Old Town Florence. A wonderful family vacation!
The house was clean, but Not a beach front. There are pictures of patio chairs looking out at the ocean on this sight, but when we got there you have a view of nothing. Very disappointing. And they call this a beachfront home. Also it's a little drive into town so you are not close to anything.
We apologize if the title of the home caused confusion on location; the home is not advertised as being oceanfront or ocean view. It is about a 10 minute walk from the home to beach access.
Super awesome house and location! Little bar up the street was cute too!
A couple friends and I rented this place for a last minute weekend getaway. We loved his home! Close to the beach, plenty of open floor space.
This was a great little getaway. We were here for our little boys 10U Minor Allstar baseball tournament. The boys loved the beach and the "climb/tunnel" to it. We lived that it was so close to everything.
Only negative was the fog horn on the ocean at 4am (and I'm a pregnant -light sleeper ) :) But not much you could do about that :)
I would stay again, as it was not a bad place. It just needs some kind of deodorizing and for the bathroom to be cleaned better. I am assuming it will be from now on.
If you are looking for solitude, simplicity as well as good location, then this is the place.
Located just a short walk from the beautiful beach and close enough to town, this little house affords it all. Nestled in a fairly private and wooded lot,the front windows give a lovely view of old growth trees. I enjoyed the birdsong each morning of mourning doves. Upon opening windows the crash of surf just a few blocks away was so soothing
This is a definite pet friendly home, yet clean and fresh. I did not bring mine
this trip, but will for sure next one. I highly recommend you visit and relax!
If you don't want to board your dogs, this is a nice place to bring them along with you. The back yard isn't connected to the house, but it's a quick walk out the door to the gated fence. Jerry's Place is a 200 feet right next door for some burgers, fried fish, drinks, and mingling with locals. We really liked the convenience to shopping at Fred Meyer, cooking our breakfasts and lunches at "home", and the amenities of wi-fi and the Dish so we didn't miss out on any NFL games. It would have been nice to have an ocean view, but we made a conscious choice for affordability. Again, the beach is a quick trip down the road and you can certainly hear the ocean waves from where you are. And it was so much better than staying in a motel!
This was also our first time using Vacasa. This is very helpful service and the staff answered all our questions about potential rentals immediately. We left daydreaming about how we can afford to sell our current home and buy our own vacation rental in the next few years. The Oregon Coast has nice weather into October and November. Make sure to treat yourself and get away for a couple of days.
We enjoyed our stay at this vacation rental especially impressed with the fact the owner considers your dogs part of the family and doesn't charge an outrageous pet fee, per pet, per day. This was one of few places that allowed more than 2 pets; we have two and our friends have one.
The Wifi was a nice bonus as well as the washer and dryer with washing powder and bounce sheets. We also loved the plush towels and shampoo!
The only disappoint be was we weren't able to stay on the beach too long due to a chilly wind. We found out from locals that Florence is a windy destination a lot of the time!
Thanks again for making our vacation memorable!
Very clean, quiet and comfortable. The beds were very nice. Everything was perfect. Dog friendly. Fenced area.
