Gorgeous riverfront house w/ entertainment, near Bay Street and the beach!
You deserve a break, and this comfortable house in Florence is the place to take it! Offering a quiet riverfront location, entertainment, and nearby beach access, up to eight travelers will have an exceptional time here.
Located at the southwest end of town on the banks of the Siuslaw River, you'll have conveniences within short driving distance, since historic Old Town is about a mile down the road. There are lush forests and rolling sand dunes to explore just south across the bridge, as well as beach access within a few miles. A set of stairs and a trail leads straight from the back deck to the river.
The home itself is warm and welcoming, with vaulted wood ceilings and large picture windows brightening the interior. Grab a seat in the comfy living room, settling in front of the gas fireplace on a variety of furniture with a view of the river outside. This room is ideal for talking, reading, and making memories by playing a board game with the whole group! On stormy days, you might watch a DVD from the collection on the flatscreen cable TV.
Adjacent to this room is the kitchen and dining room. An open kitchen features stainless steel appliances and everything you need to make delicious home-cooked meals, including a blender, coffeemaker, and dishwasher for convenience. A couple of armchairs by the windows are perfect for drinking coffee and reading, and six will fit around the dining table for dinner.
A door opens onto the sunny deck, where you'll find patio tables and furniture for enjoying the view and grilling up tasty food on the gas barbecue. Take the stairs to the firepit for roasting s'mores around a campfire in the sand, and follow the trail down to the river for a tranquil sight from the riverside bench.
Two bedrooms plus a loft make this home suitable for up to eight guests. The master bedroom features a queen bed with dune and river views, plus a full private bath. Another bedroom has a queen bed and a small TV with a full bath nearby, and the loft offers a cozy space with a queen bed, as well. Downstairs, a bonus room has a futon to sleep any remaining guests, with the final bathroom easily accessible.
This home is perfect for a family or group of friends - spend your days playing on the beach, sandboarding down dunes, surfing waves, and beachcombing for treasures. The closest beach access is just up Rhododendron Drive, at North Jetty. You could also drive south across the bridge and out South Jetty for less crowded sands also well suited for riding ATVs or sandboarding. The town of Florence is quaint but offers quality shopping, dining, and opportunities for fresh seafood. Have an unforgettable meal at the upscale Waterfront Depot, try something new at Spice, or buy some fresh catches at the Krab Kettle to cook up yourself!
You'll be so close to the coastal forests in this house, there's no excuse not to explore - drive down Highway 101 a ways to find beautiful hiking trails to the dunes, where you might also rent a dune buggy or take a guided tour at Sand Dunes Frontier, or rent a kayak to adventure on extensive Siltcoos Lake or Woahink Lake for a different perspective.
Your next beach vacation is sure to be a hit with this home - book today! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Great space for a family getaway. Walking distance to old town. Enjoyed sunsets on the beach at the river and a fire in the fire pit. Was hard to come back home.
Matthew S.Feb 2020
So relaxing. It was nice to walk out to the river and watch the sunset. Minutes from the dunes and both jetties.

We are vacation rental owners ourselves and as such have high expectations, hoping that all vacation rental owners provide very clean, nicely decorated, well stocked and comfortable homes for guests. This property met all these expectations and is one of the best homes we’ve stayed in over the years (and there have been many). It was the cleanest. Even the drains in the kitchen sink were spotless and shiny. A pet peeve of mine! The town of Florence is very quaint with plenty of great restaurants. We enjoyed El Pomodoro and also the 1285 restobar. Food was excellent at both. We look forward to returning someday. Thank you for a great visit.
Donna S.Dec 2019
Very cozy home..right on the river!
Charles N.Nov 2019
Location to Old Town, clean, well equipped. We really lacked nothing except wanting more time to stay there.
Thomas L.Oct 2019
Probably the best house we've been in over the years
James T.Sep 2019
Very close to town, right on the water, surrounded by trees, very, very clean. Thank you!
Shirley M.Sep 2019
The house looked as it showed on line. We loved the view of the river and dunes. Kitchen is nicely appointed. Very comfortable home.
Jeffrey M.Aug 2019
Cozy home, well maintained, plenty of room. Quiet location. The sandy area with the firepit in front of the home is great for kids on a sunny day. Try the sandboard rental shop or visit Darlingtonia Wayside if you are looking for unique experiences. I would definitely return to this home!
Lynn L.Jun 2019
We love the comfortbility of the house, the arts, the design surround the house, all beds in the room are nice and we also like the clean it was. Kitchen full stuff. thumbs up for the inside and outside!
Svetlana M.Jun 2019
Extremely Clean!!! Good mattresses! In the kitchen more staff than we have at home. There is everything that you need to relax. Lots of books!!! A little bit dated smell but got used to it quickly (the family did not smell it at all, only me). We saw the bear right beside the house. We did not want to leave the house to somebody else, it was so "ours" in a week. Thank you very much for good memories!
Carole M.May 2019
House has a wonderful view and a great “sandbox” yard for kids to play in. Night time fires in pit complete with s’mores and every night we had visits from deer, all added to a good time plus clam digging in the daytime. House has everything you need for a comfortable stay and plenty of room with 4 bedrooms.
Carole M.May 2019
We had a wonderful 3 days at your house, it’s a great place for little boys we spent most of our time in the yard or by the river. I hope we left everything to your satisfaction. We’d love to book for next year Memorial Day weekend we have been doing this for many years and this has been by far our favorite house.
Tim A.May 2019
The house was very clean and spacious. We loved our stay and recommend without reservation.
Tyler S.May 2019
This was a great spot to get away and enjoy the Oregon Coast. Only thing that could have made it better was actual curtains on the windows so we didn't have to wake up at sunrise every morning.
Roger F.May 2019
Great property for a getaway. Love the backyard with views of the river and sand dunes. Large house with everything you need. We will definitely return. Everything was very clean and well organized.
Nancy B.Apr 2019
It fit our needs perfectly. Loved the layout and the view was spectacular. Definitely going back
Angela G.Mar 2019
Loved the home, the yard, the space, the kitchen, the beds! The location is perfect!
Charity S.Mar 2019
Everything you need is in the house. Feels like home! Great view. Peaceful River walk. We even hit great weather this year, no pouring of rain like usual in Spring. Close to town. I walked there easily.
David C.Feb 2019
We loved our stay. Lucked out with 3 sunny days! The sand dunes across the river were beautiful and ever changing with the setting sun. House was cozy with everything we needed
Sreekanth R.Nov 2018
This property is at really cool location with a lake at back. The building looks relatively new and fresh and neatly maintained. Vacasa has been really good with details of the property and has got a easy checkout process
Heather N.Nov 2018
Very clean and comfortable home. Close to town and sunset beaches.
Sherrie C.Oct 2018

My family really enjoyed this home. We would book again when in Florence.

Everything was as advertised. The home was clean, comfortable and convenient to all the local attractions. The fireplace added a very pleasant atmosphere to the evenings.
Leslie W.May 2018

Paula S.May 2018
Beautiful and peaceful. Backyard was amazing with the sand and beach. Thank you!
Meredith S.Apr 2018
A memorable view of river, dunes and woods. Complete, spacious and we'll maintained residence. Quiet area. Short walk to the Florence old town. Outdoor deck and fire pit plus river beach walking at low tide.
Tamara H.Apr 2018
There was a lot to enjoy about staying at this house. The view is amazing. The living space is well laid out and overall it is very comfortable. The appliances in the kitchen are state of the art and nice to cook in.
We had an issue with a smoke alarm that kept beeping. We called the number on the guest guide and even though it was after 10 p.m., the manager came out to fix the faulty alarm for us (it took a ladder to reach).
The first time I stayed here was with my husband and it was a great spot for the two of us. This time I brought my girl friends for a getaway weekend. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Mel C.Apr 2018
I would highly recommend this home. Very relaxing with quiet cozy home like feel. Close to everything.
Ann B.Apr 2018
We loved our stay! Immaculate house/housekeeping, wonderful view, everything we needed and then some was on hand. Great location near downtown. We’d love to stay here again. Thank you!
Lupe G.Apr 2018
My family and I really enjoyed our stay in your house. It is perfectly situated, nice and cozy with a spectacular view. The house is big and comfortable with and open floor plan.
The house exceeded my expectations. It was really clean upon our arrival. I immediately felt comfortable letting our 1yr old grandson crawl around and explore.
Both the master bedroom and loft have beautiful views of the river. All the beds were very comfortable and cozy. I can't remember the last time we had such a good night sleep.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you can thinking of. We had home cooked meals during our stay and found everything we needed including spices which was a nice surprise.
We couldn't enjoy much of the outdoors since it rained with gusty winds during our stay there; Yet we enjoyed the river view through every window of the house.
In short, our stay here was amazing regardless of the weather. I will definitely look into staying here again in the future.
Charity S.Mar 2018
This house is amazing. Beautiful views. Look at the river while you cook on the island. Excellent everything!
Michael S.Mar 2018
This house was fabulous. Roomy, comfortable, quiet, great views and close to everything.
Lena L.Feb 2018
Thank You for allowing us to use this breathtaking home. We loved everything about it. Very clean, well stocked, and the view. It was so cool to watch the sand blowing across the dunes and watching the tides going out and then back in. We can't wait to come back.
Amelia S.Jan 2018
We were plesantly surprized at how comfortable this home was! It was lacking nothing! It has an unsual layout but it is really nice. Everything was clean and it had plenty of dishes, towels, bedding, books, movies, puzzles, etc. It had everything we could possibly need! It was very quiet and the sewer plant next door did not bother us at all. The view was awesome and the short walk to the river was very nice! I thought the price was very reasonable. We would definately reccomend it to anyone and will come again!
Krystal .Oct 2017
The home was spacious yet cozy and had everything you need. The view and river access can't be beat.
Monica S.Oct 2017
Love this house!! The view is the best. Loved waking up having coffee and looking out at the water. So peaceful. The kitchen has all brand new appliances and is fully stocked with everything you need. So nice the owners open up and share this property. The whole family had a great time and everyone loved the house and Oregon.
Donna N.Oct 2017
This was a wonderful place to stay. Comfortable with a great view.
Curtis M.Sep 2017
A week to remember!
Barry R.Sep 2017
Nice home, loved the view. It seemed very secluded for being in town. And the sewage plant next door, was no problem.

Roy H.Aug 2017
We have been renting homes in Florence for the last 10 years. This home is by far the best! Right away we felt like we were at home. The home is equipped with everything needed to make your stay enjoyable. The private rooms and bathrooms make staying with several people ideal. The spacious deck and private sandy beach on the river were idyllic. We can't wait to come back! Thank you for sharing your home with us and making us feel like we were at home!
Anne W.Jun 2017
Great property. Enjoyed our stay. Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Loved the view of the river and dunes.
Kathy B.Jun 2017
we were a party of 3 adult couples heading feom east coast to attend nephews graduation. this house was perfect. we had lots of room and privacy but could congregate and cook and okay games and entertain the west coast family. would def rent again our next trip. and told west coast relatives to suggest to their other guests. weather was rainy and cool but we still grilled out and walked along river
Maurita C.May 2017
Roomy, beautiful view, fun fire pit, and lots of sand in the backyard made this the perfect location.
Mary Jo B.May 2017
This property is new, and is carefully maintained. The beds are comfy, the kitchen very well appointed, the view is lovely, Florence is an
Interesting town to explore, with many specialty shops and good restaurants.
Courtney D.May 2017
We absolutely loved our weekend here...we took our two young boys and they loved the house, especially our secret private path down to the water. What a gem! We used the outdoor fireplace both nights. And we loved that we could easily walk into downtown Florence. We are already making plans to come back and stay here again!
Martha Elena M.May 2017
We were very pleased with the house. It was only 4 of us adults but definitely would be nice for a family. I love all the windows and the natural light they let in specially on gloomy over cast days like the ones we had. The kitchen was one of the best equipped ones we have had. The location was great for our needs. The view of the dunes is very nice and also being near the water. We will definitely bring our family.
Judy R.Apr 2017
We just came to rest an get away an enjoy the rental home. Meet our family needs excellent. Will book again soon.
Marjorie M.Mar 2017
The house is very clean and well-maintained with a beautiful view of the river and dunes. Negatives include road noise for the front bedrooms, and scented laundry detergent (which may not bother most people).
John K.Feb 2017
Very cozy home, private, well equiped
Tamara H.Jan 2017
This house was in a nice location with a short walk to the water. It was a very relaxing and peaceful place to stay. The kitchen was well appointed.
We enjoyed our time at this house and would stay there again.
Brandy N.Jan 2017
Wonderful stay. We will be back.
Dana B.Nov 2016
My long-time friend and I stayed here for three nights and it was marvelous. This is a beautiful home with a spectacular view. It is furnished with quality furnishings and is decorated tastefully. We felt as though we were staying in a friends lovely home- not a "vacation rental". The home is immaculate.There is great attention to detail and they have provided every amenity you could ever need. I enjoyed going through the collection of great books and also appreciated the artwork and paintings on the walls. Again...we felt as though we were at a friends beautiful home. A retreat from the rest of the world and a feeling of coming home. Thank you...we will be back soon!
Ladonna V.Oct 2016
Nice house, we hope to stay here again.
James C.Oct 2016
The pictures listed do not do this house justice. It is a short distance (walking distance to old town) yet isolated and private. The back yard and nice deck are surrounded by trees and rhododendron plants. You don't even know there are houses next door! A short walk out the back yard puts you at the edge of the river with a view of the bridge and the sand dunes across the river. The house is very clean and well maintained with everything needed for a complete stay. It could easily accommodate a party of 6 or 8. It was a great stay for us and if we return to the Florence area this house will be a top priority!
Lisa M.Oct 2016
Great place for a ladies weekend! Everything we needed and more to feel comfortable and at home.
William P.Oct 2016
Great place to stay in Florence!
Harold S.Oct 2016
Very nice home. It is furnished with quality items. They have thought of everything you might want or need.
The view of the river is beautiful, and access very convenient.
Kurt S.Sep 2016
We were originally booked for a condo next to the bridge. Unexpected construction noise made it unbearable. The Vacasa people found us a new, superior, place for the same money. They were very good about this. I recommend using Vacasa for holiday booking.
Johnny V.Sep 2016
The Sunset Dunes is a wonderful vacation house. It is immaculate and has everything needed or wanted. The kitchen is really well equipped.
Watching the changing colors of the dunes and the boats going by was such a joy.
We plan to return again and again to this special place.
