Gorgeous riverfront rental with excellent views and large private deck!
Right in the popular Old Town section, this one-bedroom Florence vacation rental offers an amazing view of the Suislaw River and its historic bridge right from the spacious deck. Surround yourself in luxury when you stay here with flat screen TVs, a soaking tub, and a clean, sophisticated decor. Perfect for a weekend getaway, anniversary celebration, or even a honeymoon, when you stay here, you won't want to leave!
This third floor corner condo offers all the comforts of home - and then some! The cozy living room boasts smooth leather furniture, framed travel posters, an electric fireplace, a large flat screen TV, cable, and a DVD player. Butter up some popcorn and settle in for a night of your favorite movies. There's a coffee table to hold drinks and snacks - you could even spread a board game out for a fun after-dinner activity.
And don't miss viewing a vibrant sunset from out on the deck! Use the gas grill to cook up a feast or just enjoy a glass of wine while you watch the Suislaw River come and go with the tide. From here, you'll also have a great view of the Oregon Dunes. In the morning, fill up a mug with coffee and come out here with your laptop and use the WiFi to check email.
If you don't feel like preparing an outdoor meal, the full kitchen has everything you'll need for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. From the shiny stainless steel appliances to the gorgeous granite countertops, preparing meals here will be a joy. When you do sit down to eat, you'll be treated to more of those amazing river views.
From the bedroom, you'll have deck access, another flat screen TV, and a second electric fireplace. Before turning in, head outside to gaze up at the stars, and when you come back inside, the room will be all cozy and warm before getting into the snuggly, memory foam queen size bed. Along with the sleeper sofa in the living room, this condo will comfortably accommodate up to four guests. And the last bit of luxury? An extra large soaking tub in the full bathroom. Just the thing after a long day exploring all of historic Old Town's shops and galleries.
Additional amenities include a duel sink vanity in the bathroom, a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer, and Bose radio/CD player. The condo building also has an elevator, so this space will also work well for those who don't want to deal with stairs.
Right outside your door, you'll be only steps away from Old Town Florence. Spend the day looking through galleries, shops, and when you need a break, stop by Suislaw River Coffee Roasters for a latte and a cookie (you know, just to keep up your strength). Also, a stay at this Oregon Coast vacation rental would not be complete without a meal at the Waterfront Depot restaurant for crab-encrusted halibut.
When you want to do a little beachcombing, it's only five miles north along Highway 101 to Heceta Beach. This long stretch of sand is just waiting for you to walk along its shore. Fly a kite, build a sandcastle, the possibilities are endless. And to the south, is the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Come watch the ATVs navigate the sand or pack a lunch, hike along the trails, and when you work up an appetite, find a perfect spot for an outdoor repast.
This bright and modern Florence vacation condo will make your whole trip to the Central Oregon Coast. Rain or shine, the views are gorgeous and this quaint little coast town always has endless activities to offer its visitors.
*Please be aware of construction noises on the nearby bridge. The noise can go late into the night and begins early in the morning. Thank you!

I recently stayed at River Vista and the home and location could not be more perfect.
Jason T W.Jan 2020
As described and better. We had a wonderful stay.
Julie A.Jan 2020
This visit was our third to River Vista. Each time we arrive, it feels like we're sinking into deep relaxation. I can't think of a better way to escape daily cares and begin a new year!
Laurie L.Dec 2019
Perfect size for my husband and I to stay a few days. Modern amenities and very clean with a terrific view. Located within an easy walk of the old downtown area with lots of shops and restaurants.
Cathy A.Oct 2019
The view is to die for!! The river is mellow and soothing. The condo is first class and is our first choice when selecting a place to stay in Florence. Just wish we could stay longer than 3 or 4 days!!
Patricia D.Sep 2019
A beautiful condo. Enjoyed dinner on the deck watching the fishing boats and wildlife. Walks in old town with all the wonderful shops and restaurants. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Doug and Patty from Idaho
Eric S.Sep 2019
We love the location, the view, and the cleanliness of this little gem - they’ve thought of everything for our comfort and convenience! We plan on coming back again and again!
Linda C.Sep 2019
Loved the view, spaciousness of the condo, liked the 2 sliding patios doors, loved the patio overlooking the bridge and river, the
carpet instead of cold, wooden floors, and of course, the location.
Also, the bed was very comfortable, as was the furniture. Also, the place was quiet.
Larry O.Sep 2019
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. It is well stocked and accommodations are high quality. It feels like a home more than a vacation rental. We loved spending time on the balcony and made the very short walk (you are pretty much already there when you step off the property) to Old Town Florence for shopping and great variety of restaurant options. The only down side is there isn't A/C, so if it is a hot summer day it does get a little warmer than we like, but there is always a breeze coming off the water and it definitely cools down to a comfy temp at night. We will definitely be coming back!!
Andrea A.Aug 2019
This condo is an immaculate and perfect space to enjoy the town of Florence. We were very comfortable there and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again. A huge compliment to whomever cleans and cares for the place!
Lloyd P.Aug 2019
The bridge was magnificent, the lights. The wildlife, great viewing. Closeness to dining and shopping in Old Town.
Terry M.Jul 2019
First rate amenities, convenient location, good value
Cheryl L.Jul 2019
Had a great view with a relaxing atmosphere, would highly recommend!
Dina P.Jun 2019
My husband and I stayed at River Vista for a weekend, and we really enjoyed it. It has everything you might possibly need. The balcony and binoculars were much appreciated! We spent plenty of time on that balcony, the view is great, not much noise from the bridge, and we saw all kinds of wildlife in the river. The property is clean, easy to find, and close to everything. We would definitely stay there again, and again!
Eric S.May 2019
This little gem is exquisite! Everything from location, view, cleanliness and decor is beyond a 5 star review rating. It definitely far exceeded our expectations and we will be booking again very soon.
John B.Mar 2019
We enjoyed our stay. Very nicely furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed. The location was perfect. Enjoyed our walks through old town and trying out a new restaurant each day. The weather was crazy and though we tried to escape the snow, it managed to find us. The dunes were covered one morning.
Danielle H.Jan 2019
We loved staying here because the location is perfect. Your within walking distance of shopping, dining (Restobar is the best) and entertainment. The condo is cute and very comfortable. The bed is nice and soft and being on the water is relaxing. There is some road noise from the bridge but not enough that it kept us awake. The condo is well equipped and perfectly suited for a couple who want to relax in privacy.
Dale R E.Jan 2019
Clean, comfortable; traffic noise not a problem this time of year.
Peter H.Jan 2019
condo was super. location unparalleled. The town is terrific. there is nothing not to like.
Julie A.Jan 2019
River Vista provides a perfect location for relaxation and exploration. It's close to great restaurants and shopping, while providing a cozy deck for watching the river and wildlife. This was our second stay at River Vista. We look forward to many return visits!
Sandra T.Dec 2018
Location can't be beat for exploring Old Town Florence and the Dunes.
Julie A.Nov 2018
River Vista is ideally situated for a restful getaway while also allowing for strolls, shopping and excellent meals in nearby restaurants. The condo is beautifully equipped and maintained. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck or in the comfortable living room while reading or watching river life.
Cathy A.Oct 2018
I love the river!! We have stayed at this condo complex several times, and this is the 2nd time in this unit. The biggest draws for us are the onsite parking, the elevator and the view of the river!! It is quiet, it is cozy and best of all...it is in Florence...home of our very favorite restaurant. This is a must visit condo, and we would recommend it to one and all!!
Wendy R.Oct 2018
Amazing views and location. Condo was perfect and very comfortable. Would love to come back and stay again
Marilu L.Oct 2018
Perfect for the two of us; never tired of the view. As long as windows closed, noise others commented about did not bother us. And did I mention the view?!? Enjoyed walking old town area, close for driving to golf, hiking. When we return to Florence this will be our first choice for accommodations.
Kerrie S.Sep 2018
Very clean and spacious-had all the amenities and right by old town.
Nancy S.Sep 2018
The condo is just lovely. Has everything you need. Great location. Very quiet for being by a major highway and a bridge. Will definately stay heer again!
Albert D.Aug 2018
What's to love about this place? Location - nice balcony overlooking the river and really close to all the Old Town facilities.
What's not to love about this place? Location - it is the end unit right by the bridge. The occasional hotrodder during the day is mildly annoying, and detracts from the pleasure of sitting on the balcony. It even seems pretty quiet early in the evening. But about 4 a.m. the big trucks start rolling across the bridge. The first night we were there was fairly warm, so we left the bedroom window open a bit. Not a good idea if you are a light or medium sleeper. Even with the windows shut and curtains drawn, the noise was sleep-disturbing.
That being said, the apartment is nicely furnished and clean and convenient, so if you are a heavy sleeper or used to truck traffic at night, it might work for you.
James J.Aug 2018
The condo was very comfortable with a great calming view of the river. Check in was easy.
christine m.Jul 2018
Condo was conveniently located and nicely decorated. We had no issues and would love to stay again
Daniel G.Jun 2018
The location and river/ bridge was wonderful. The condo was spacious and well appointed. Everything you need to feel right at home.
Laurie H.Jun 2018
My husband and I love to stay at this condo. The kitchen is amazingly stocked with utensils and good cookware. Love the view and a bonus is the assortment of movies. It's always our first choice for Florence visits.
Dan H.May 2018
The condo is so well designed and everything there is in good repair and good quality. It is very convenient to be able to be right in old town for going to the restaurants there.
Jim & Cathy A.May 2018
This is the place to relax, breathe deeply and just become lazy! The home was well equipped, the view from the balcony was just wonderful. We love staying in Florence, and this condo was just perfect for the two of us!!
Christine F.Apr 2018
Girls vacation! We enjoyed everything about this condo!!!! The attention to detail was spot on... we will be back!
Lisa M.Mar 2018
Location, view, the books the home, artwork very comfy.
Tara J.Mar 2018
Jessica R.Feb 2018
A very well kept condo. My wife and I stayed in Florence to get away from the kids! It was great for a weekend getaway. We loved the space and the soaker tub was pretty nice as well. The only thing I did not like was the small toilet. Perfect location, just steps away from old town Florence and a couple minute drive to the casino!
Elizabeth L.Feb 2018
This condo sits on the water facing the historical bridge and dunes. It has a full-sized kitchen, comfy bed, great internet connection. Would highly recommend staying here.
Dan/linda H.Feb 2018
Actually I want to keep this gem a secret so that it is available for us. lol This is an incredible place, wonderful view, totally convenient to old town. Furnishings very very good and the lay out of the condo space is so well used. Receiving an email if the unit is available for early arrival or late stay is such good customer service. Thank you VaCasa.
Suzanne B.Nov 2017
This is a beautiful Condo with ample room for a 1 bedroom. It is very comfortable. Within walking distance to many great places in Old Town Florence. Great food and just a lot of fun things to see and do.
James B.Oct 2017
Perfect place to stay for Old Town Florence
Jonathan G.Oct 2017
We were both so happy when we walked in. We loved the view, and the area. We come over to Florence often and will stay here again. Close to Restaurants and shops and just love walking up and down old town. The place was clean except some cobwebs on the light in the dinning room. All in All a Wonderful stay and a Wonderful Birthday for my Lady
Mary C.Oct 2017
Very cozy unit. Fabulous balcony to watch birds & river traffic from. Convenient to beaches & sand dunes. All kitchen & electronic goodies you could ever want. Very clean unit.
Christine C.Sep 2017
Felt like home, everything was thought of to make your stay comfortable. Very clean and wonderful decor. AMAZING views, love the bridge!
Nicole P.Sep 2017
Modern clean place, very comfortable and centrally located. Enjoyed the view from the deck. Would definitely stay here again if in Florence.
Violeta I.Sep 2017
The apartment is tastefully furnished with very good quality items - it has everything! The views and sunsets over the Siuslaw River, the bridge, and the dunes were breathtaking at times. The property is within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Not noisy if you keep the windows closed. Does not have AC so on hot days it might be hard not to open the windows - we used a fan which was provided.
Sande Q.Sep 2017
What a beautiful home to share with our granddaughter for a few days prior to starting school. We appreciated the lovely furnishings and well stocked kitchen. Would love to return!
Paul S.Aug 2017
My wife and I were extremely pleased with the serenity and quiet of the River View property. This was our first time renting a vacation property rather than a hotel. I will, from now on, use Vacasa services. A wonderful experience.
Craig P.Aug 2017
condo was beautiful. had everything anyone would need. great location. right on the Siuslaw river. wished I could have stayed longer. try not to book through booking.com....got messed up with them. Cleaning fee high for having to start laundry and dishwasher.
Darren A.Aug 2017
Good location, not too noisy as others have commented.
Cathy V.Aug 2017
This one bedroom condo is very clean and comfortable. It is well equipped with items one may need in the kitchen and bathroom. The view from the deck is gorgeous. The condo is located right by the shops and several restaurants (with a wonderful coffeeshop almost right outside the door). I recommend this place to anyone looking to stay on the Oregon coast.
Anita R.Jul 2017
Very nice and fully accommodating condo. Would love to come here again.
Barbara H.Jul 2017
It was so awesome to watch the boats and even seals go by - and a great location for any bird watchers out there! Plus, you are walking distance to several great restaurants. The bridge is a little noisy, but definitely worth the location! (just pack some ear plugs!) So thankful that it had an elevator (since it's on the third floor).
Lynda C.May 2017
We had an amazing time at River Vista. It is one of the best condo/house that we have rented. Everything in the house was high end. The owners take pride in their house and it shows. We were very comfortable. The bed was great. We will definitely come back soon.
Alberta S.May 2017
This condo is a great place to stay. It exceeded expectations. We have to go to Florence periodically and I would choose this Condo over any other option in the future. Thanks for having such a comfortable place to stay.
Angela G.Apr 2017
My mother and I stayed here for a little getaway weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by all the things that the owners thought of to have available for their guests: multiple fans, hair dryer, games, movies, music, spices, shampoo, dishsoap, you name it, it was there. This was a beautifully decorated, extra clean, condo. Oh, and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The location was right in old town Florence. It was nice to be able to walk to shopping and restaurants.
Ann S.Apr 2017
Wonderfully appointed and clean condo. Great kitchen for cooking but convenient to the Bay Street restaurants too. Currently there is construction on the bridge but it was not bothersome. Definitely will stay again.
Dennis W.Feb 2017
We truly enjoyed our stay in Florence. The location of the condo was perfect - walking distance to the old town waterfront shops and eats. The condo is located right on the water (the river in old town) next to the bridge. There was bride construction while we were there (we had been informed at the time of reservation) but it was not overly loud or disruptive. Great view from which to watch the changing tide in the river. The bed was comfortable and well equipped for our stay.
James S.Dec 2016
#303 is a piece of heaven. It was extremely well appointed, lacked nothing. Everything was like new. It was also extremely clean. We really hated to leave this condo, as it seemed like home from the minute we stepped in the front door. We both stated that if it had been for sale furnished, we would have wanted to buy it. Stay here, you won't regret it and you will hate to leave it when your time is up.
Haylee G.Nov 2016
Very clean, great location, beautiful trip overall. Will stay again.
Mark B.Nov 2016
We loved stating at this condo, great location, really nice furnishings, the bath tub was romantic and fun! Kitchen was well stocked. We will be staying here again for sure
Cynthia G.Oct 2016
Loved the river view. Would stay again.
Clark J.Sep 2016
We just had the perfect experience, we travel quite a bit, however, renting from Vacasa exceeded our expectations. Everything we could ask for & then some was at our fingertips. The people are friendly and professional. The accommodations are beautiful, clean and very relaxing.We will definitely be back!! Thank you Vacasa for running such a "Stand Up" and "Trustworthy" business.
Peter W.Sep 2016
We plan on returning!
Heather B.Aug 2016
Wonderful place! Clean and had everything you needed. Price was better than staying at a local hotel and you got so much more! Thank you for a great stay!
Courtney T.Aug 2016
This was my husband's and I first time to Florence. We absolutely loved this condo the overlook of the river and the general location was amazing! We were walking distance of a lot of shops and amazing restaurants! We are thinking of making this a yearly trip at this same condo! Will definitely not disappoint!
Richard C.Aug 2016
We stayed for 5 days during that time we just relaxed and enjoyed the view. We brought our own lounger for the deck with the glass enclosure we had very little wind. we tried to not live by a schedule and it worked out just fine. Restaurants were in walking distance. I had a hard time getting my wife to leave she wanted to move in. Loved it! Thanks
Susan K.Aug 2016
Great location. Beautiful view. On the bayfront but also very private
STEPHEN & JO ANN N.Jul 2016
The property is clean and well supplied . The corner unit offers wonderful views of the bridge, river and dunes. Old town offers good restaurants and shops. The only drawbacks of this unit are the lack of air conditioning and the construction going on the bridge.
Alexandra R.Jun 2016
We are newlywed and rented this unit as our honeymoon suite. Upon arrival the condo took our breath away. We had a beautiful view of the river and the dunes. Close to everything this is a great place to stay.
Brennan D.Jun 2016
We had a great extended weekend, the condo was perfect it had everything we needed to stay and cook and enjoy the view. We were able to walk to old downtown and it was a short drive to the beach! The condo was clean and the view is amazing!
Laurie W.May 2016
Jacquelyn S.May 2016
This place is walking distance to Old Town and a lot of options for meals and shopping and viewing of the river.
Cyndee R.May 2016
Great Time. Great location! Great little condo! Great Weather! Just GREAT!
Hope to stay here again.
Len R.Apr 2016
The stay was great. Please do something about all that sunshine we got though.
Roger G.Apr 2016
Linda P.Mar 2016
We experienced amazing storms. Enjoyed being located right next to the water. Loved walking through old town and the wonderful shops. Very tasty restaurants all within walking distance. We will tell all of our family and friends about this amazing place.
Becky S.Feb 2016
The condo was even better than advertised, we had a great long weekend there.
Laurence H.Feb 2016
All in all a good stay. I really like the location. It's a short walk to old town. The only negative is that the noise from the bridge doesn't allow you to sleep with the windows open.
Christopher B.Sep 2015
I really loved it there, and I'm sure I will be back some time when my wife and I need a quick weekend getaway.
June W.Aug 2015
Great condo, location,amenities.
No improvements needed.
Harold S.Aug 2015
Very clean, furnishings are quality.
Relaxing on the deck, watching the seals, birds, tide come in and go out and boats was very nice.
You won't find a deal like this at any of the motels/ hotels in the area!
Mario S.Jul 2015
This little apartment is located in the "heart" of old town Florence. Walking distance to several restaurants and shopping...great view of the bay and the bridge. Too many more pros than cons...but be aware that birds wake up early and seagulls are noisy. That combined with the constant traffic of the bridge might be a bit too loud for some folks - it was bothersome to us particularly in the very early morning hours. There is only one window that has a great view in the family room...the other window overlooks the roof line and gutters...not nice. The property itself is small but extremely cozy and well appointed. A bit pricey compared with other properties along the coast (Newport)...but all in all a very pleasant experience.
Karen P.Apr 2015
The condo was great and being able to walk to the Old Town area with the shops and great restaurants was wonderful. The view of the river was really nice. Would definitely return to Florence and the River Vista again.
Thanks so much.
Charles N.Apr 2015
This place had everything that was promised and more. We had a great time.
Ruby L.Feb 2015
Kitchen is well equipped, everything is very comfortable and clean-a great place to stay! The river view is wonderful. So nice to be able to walk to most places as well.
Thank you for this great review.
Stephen S.Jan 2015
Favorite spot in town was the suite. We shopped, dined out, shopped, shopped, visited family, and shopped. Boy that suite was appreciated. I have never stayed in a more comfortable small condo that was better appointed. Just all the little touches like books, rainy day games, binoculars for watching the birds and seals (bird books too), all modern appliances, great queen bed, the electric fireplaces in the living and bed room. Okay, before I get carried away I liked this place. Great view of the river too. Read a review complaining about traffic noise from the nearby bridge; not a problem at all. Place was spit and polish clean too.
Laura H.Jan 2015
This condo is beautiful! The pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen is very well stocked with quality cookware. I loved staying here and would do it again in a second.
Belinda Y.Dec 2014
This was a very clean, comfortable and pleasant condo. Although some may find the location next to the bridge a bit noisy while sitting outside on the balcony. I didn't find it to be a problem.Neighbors were friendly and quiet. The apartment is right in the center of the action in Florence, steps away from excellent restaurants and close to Safeway supermarket for food shopping.
Bobi P.Nov 2014
We travel often in the US and beyond and most generally we rent a home. This was the best equipped vacation rental that we have ever stayed in and it was equipped with quality items. The location could not be better, two doors down from a great coffee shop and three blocks of shopping and cafes not to mention being right on the water. The Siuslaw River is ever changing with the tides, you can watch the seals, otters and fish jump, the fishing and crabbing boats. Lovely to sit on the deck and watch the sun set over the dunes and naturally the bridge is awesome
Jennifer R.Nov 2014
I loved my stay at River Vista! I was not bothered AT ALL by the traffic on the bridge. I loved the comfort of the furnishings and enjoyed all the small details of the place. The soaking tub was awesome and the bed was very comfortable! I will stay here again.
Peggy R.Oct 2014
The view was really lovely, including a close up of the bridge. This contributes to a little road noise, but the condo was well insulated against sound with the windows closed.
Miriam L.Sep 2014
It was our first time in Florence and it was great. Vacasa was very helpful and the place we rented was great hope to be back very soon.
RONALD S.Aug 2014
Beautiful condo including everything you could possibly need or want! Top floor end unit with a great view of the river and the bridge, with that being said, be for warned that if you sleep with the windows open at night the traffic crossing the bridge is very loud.
Claudia M.Jul 2014
While I was very happy with the overall experience, I won't stay there again due to the noise of the traffic on the bridge. Here are some recommendations
1. more towel racks in the bathroom.
2. more details as to how to work TV and DVD remote. they were very frustrating for us!
Thank you for sharing your constructive review! We are working diligently to equip all of our homes with a Welcome binder that includes detailed instructions for each home's amenities including televisions and DVD players, and we are confident this will help eliminate any difficulties our guests experience during their stays. As we continue to update and improve this home we will certainly consider your suggestion regarding adding towel racks in the bathroom. We are sorry for any inconveniences you experienced and we would love another opportunity to impress you. Thank you again for your feedback.
Robert S.May 2014
Sweet and to the point; the pricing was comperable to local hotels, with the ammenities of home! Reservations were quick with email confirmation within minutes. Think I'll see if they have rental properties in Portland for future stays there!
