Modern, dog-friendly home w/ covered porch & gas grill - walk to the beach!

Make your fairy-tale vacation come true with this charming Florence home just two blocks from the beach! Comfortably furnished, with a covered front porch and a dog-friendly policy, this delightful rental has everything you need to turn your next getaway into a magical experience.

The home is tucked away on the northwest edge of town, on a quiet street just two short blocks from Heceta Beach, placing the spectacular scenery of the Oregon Coast at your fingertips. Take a leisurely stroll along the beach, watch for pelicans and whales, or fly a kite in the brisk ocean wind. Drive down into Florence and take a stroll around Old Town's shops, play some golf at one of the two courses in town, listen to the weekend live music at the casino, or reserve a spot on one of the dune buggy rides south of town. For a truly incredible vantage point, hike up to the Heceta Head Lighthouse north of town, which provides a stunning panorama of the rugged coast below.

When you're not out enjoying the fresh air, retreat into the peace and quiet of this delightful home and let relaxation wash over you. Two concrete ramps at the front and back entrances, extra-wide doors, bathroom rails, and an open floor plan ensure that everyone can enjoy their stay. Take a nap on the couch, catch up with friends back home with the free WiFi, or take a book out to the porch and catch up on your reading while you listen to the waves crashing in the distance. You'll find a fully equipped kitchen for fixing all your favorite meals, along with a gas grill for firing up a summer BBQ. And for a small nightly fee, your furry family members can come along as well to keep you company in the fenced yard! (Two dogs max, please.)

The perfect getaway awaits. Book your reservation today!

This rental was beyond our expectations - I have stayed at dozens of VRBO's over the last 15 years, and this one was by far the most well-appointed home we have ever rented! It lacks for nothing - everything from spices and saran wrap to umbrellas, beach toys, doggie biscuits and a dog dish and feeding station, and even a hot-pot! It is immaculate, modern, and delightfully cheerful. The proximity to the beach is perfect - just a short 5 minute walk. Best of all, we felt our dogs were very secure - a gate at the front porch, completely fenced around the perimeter, and a gate across the driveway. We appreciated the dog-friendliness of these owners and managers. If it sounds like I'm gushing - I am! We just loved this place and can't wait to go back again!

The overall layout worked well for our extended family stay. Liked the close beach access. The large pantry space made it easy to store food and supplies. Liked the Master bedroom space and glass door shower. Our granddaughter loved the bunk beds. We appreciated the fenced/gated accommodations, and security system. Seemed well stocked with cooking, food prep supplies. Dining seating was doable. Living room furniture was comfy, but a bit deep for shorter legs. Liked the availability of wooden TV trays to use by recliners. Ramp access made it easy on our older dog, so she didn't have to climb stairs! Access from the parking area is a bit steep, but doable.

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. It was about a two or three block walk to the beach. Excellent security, well-kept, and decorated home with some high-end features. Very comfortable. Only negatives were no clothes storage for children's room and malfunctioning washer and dryer. We played a lot of chess with our children with the beautiful chess set. Well within driving distance of many coastal activities. Would definitely stay again if vacationing in Florence.

My sister and her family came to Oregon for vacation. The house was the perfect size for my family and hers. We were all able to eat together around the table and also enjoy playing games. The house is not too far from the beach. Just a short walk. I would recommend this home to friends and family.

The home was comfortable and clean. Plenty of parking for our trailer. I will rent this home again in the future.

The home was perfect for our weekend getaway. This was by far the cleanest and well taken cared for home we have been in.

Like the ocean theme, calming, inviting place. Just the living room seating could be move inviting and comfortable. Otherwise we didn't want to leave. Loved walking the beach with coffee in the morning. It was nice and close. Would definitely rent this place again.

We enjoyed our stay here. The kitchen facilities were outstanding, as was the cleanliness of the house. The master bedroom is very roomy and well-furnished.
The bunk room is adequate. The third bedroom is very small and has no closet but has a reading chair with no reading light. We would have liked better reading light in the living area. The furnishings were very attractive, featuring the color red. The eating table has four chairs, which would not be adequate for a large group (there are beds for 8). We were puzzled by the paperback books in the living area: several copies of each, apparently new. Are the owners selling books? The Netflix/TV set-up is difficult to understand but fortunately we had a technology nerd in our group. The "early check-in"/"late check out" feature was not useful to us because we needed more lead time. The beach is easily accessible with a short walk. The ramps/stairs to enter the house could be a challenge for some people.
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see some of the house's points did not suit this guest's personal preferences. There is dining seating for eight with four at the table and four at the bar. Thank you!

We very much enjoyed Christmas at this property. It's close to the beach, an enjoyable walk! The house is so cute with all the amenities we could ever need. I especially loved the open concept in the living, dining , kitchen areas. We were able to sit 12 people for a meal. The utility room and washer/dryer was perfect for clean up. We washed the sand from our beachy boots with the handy outside faucet many times, too!
Once Upon A Tide is a great place to stay, folks!
