Great location, big house. Great view. However, there is no heat in the bedrooms. Bad wifi service. House smelled like dogs. Very dusty. Knifes were so dull not safe to use.
Hi, Brie! New heaters have been suggested to the homeowner, and housekeeping has been asked to take care of the odor, dust, and dull knives. Thank you!
This place was perfect for us. We could see the ocean, our dogs loved it, and it as a 2 minute stroll to the sand. The hot tub was clean and welcoming, not always the case in a rental. We'll be back for sure!
Close to the beach, clean and comfortable.
A truly unique home! Great kitchen for cooking delicious food together, an easy walk to the beach, incredible view from the living room and a sweet nook for reading in a turret! All topped off by the large hot tub for those chilly costal nights! I would stay at the Spur again!!
We were quite disappointed in the condition of the house we rented for the weekend. First off when entering the house the air was quite stale, we had to open the doors and windows to air out. We were told via phone the house was ready for us but less than two hours later when we arrived the trash can outside was turned over and garbage spread around the drive way. Inside we discovered the glasses and cups were put away dirty and we had to wash them before usage. The carpet was also dirty and the couch covers were not even smoothed out, looked like someone has been sitting on them and left them wrinkled. Not what you would expect for the money we spent to rent this house for the weekend.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We are sorry to hear your stay with us did not go as well as we hoped it would. It sounds like some local wildlife may have gotten into the trash before you arrived. Cleanliness is one of our main priorities though, so rest assured we will address the cleaning issues you noticed with the housekeepers to ensure more thorough cleans are being performed going forward. We will also have the carpet professionally cleaned.
We loved the home it was a beautiful place. However we did have a few issues or items that needed addressed and need to be brought to the companies attention. There were a few selection of ways to make coffee but no actual coffee pot that worked. We brought this to their attention and they brought us one right away. Does not shut off automatically so be sure to shut it off. 😉
There are very few cups and a couple that had broken handles. Not a very big glass selection for small kids but beautiful wine glass set. One step leading to the upstairs has creaky loose boards and there are 2 hand rails that need attention. The second from bottom and second from top are both loose. Bed in master has a broken center leg so bed sinks in slightly. Comfortable to sleep on though. Also back door and sliding glass door were both unlocked upon arrival. Trash can for outside was missing but possible that the bear drug it down the hill.
Now for all the good! This home is very beautiful and in a great location. Close enough to beach that there is not only a gorgeous view from the tower and but also the front window. The walk to the beach is only minutes away and a quiet walk. Beach area itself is a good location on the beach with nice sandy area. Kids had a great time building a sand castle. Hot tub was nice. Movie selection was very limited as it had DVD player but vhs movies. LOL I would definitely stay here again.
Enjoy and relax!
Marnie, thank you for the review and for making us aware of the issues that need special TLC. The local team will address the issues to prepare the home for future stays. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed the home and the location. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Thank you!
The house is beautiful, very unique layout. The kitchen is gorgeous. Great ocean view the hot tub was perfect with the cool ocean air. The hot water heater went out and they were very attentive and the repair was done within an hour. So that was impressive. The only thing is I wish the house was aired out and maybe a deeper clean. The dust and musty smell really messed with my asthma. Other than that it was very nice.
Thank you for your review, Ashley, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your feedback as a means to continually improve our home, as well as our guests' comfort and satisfaction. We look forward to hosting you again.
Positives- Great Location. 5 minutes walk to beach. Hot tub was great.
Negatives- Master bed squeaks loudly and need replaced. The bonus room tv needs a new dvd player and the main tv gets only some channels that work. The downstairs smells musty.
I think this house has a lot of potential. It is well laid out for a large family - good space to gather - good space to separate for a while. The close proximity to the beach is wonderful and the beach itself is fantastic.
The house itself needs some maintenance - the property management team was quick to come fix a toilette problem, but we found a dinning chair that was not safe, pans had not been cleaned properly and were crusted. Glasses were chipped. Small things but all added up to this house is either not being taken care of or is being used to finance an upgrade. I hope some upgrades are coming because the house is promising and would be awesome if it were fixed up a bit.
Hi, Julianne! Thank you for your feedback. It was our pleasure hosting you and we are glad the size and location of our home worked well for you. Thank you for bringing to our attention some items that need to be addressed. We will look into the general maintenance needs. The new owners of the home are doing everything they can to make it nice for our guests. We hope to host you again in the future!
This house is cute and had plenty of things to keep kids, teenagers, occupied.
Spacious and comfortable with a beautiful ocean view, however, a few things were lacking. Other reviews noted the lack of spoons, and this is still the case. The carpets are stained. The description notes 2 twin beds, but they don’t exist.
Thank you for your review, Deb! We are so glad you stayed with us and apologize for any shortcomings. One twin bed is located in the closet, and the other behind the locker. The carpet will be inspected. We hope to see you again!
Loved the house, the king bed down stairs was very comfortable and had dark curtains so the sun was waking us.
Great location just a brief walk from the beach. We really enjoyed the uniqueness of this fun house. We had a great time and enjoyed the hot tub as well.
Beautiful charming home. 4 minute walk from the beach. Beautiful view.. Nice jacuzzi. We loved it here.
It was a wonderful little home to be able to go and relax after each Day's new adventure while on vacation. Nice to have a place to stay and not have to completely pack up everything each day. I was born there are stairs that must be used to access the main part of the house so if you have a problem with stairs or wheelchair for other special needs needs I would check to make sure this would work for you. It was a beautiful place but I definitely got my exercise.
Really beautiful house just a couple of problems with the shower but quick response on taking care of the problem
This house was fantastic! There’s an ocean view, even from the hot tub! The house was clean and did not smell like dog, which is something I worry about when booking a pet-friendly place. We loved the hot tub, ocean views, and short walk to the beach. Very satisfied with our stay. There were only 3 twin beds during our stay and one of them was too uncomfortable to use, didn’t matter for our trip but might matter to others booking. The only negatives for our stay were that there are only 2 teaspoons in the house and not enough hooks to hang things in entryway and near hot tub.
Hi, Monique! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback. The property manager will be adding more hooks and checking that all beds are in good shape. Thank you!
The kids loved it, and the layout allows them to be isolated and noisy. My only complaint is the TVs don't have Netflix or anything but local stations.
Hot tub was awesome. We will be back.
The Sandy Spur was great! It’s a wonderful pet friendly house with a hot tub and about a quarter mile or less walk to the beach!
Nice location and just a couple of blocks to the beach
The walk to the beach is quick and easy and if you pack some things you can drive down and park. We loved the hot tub in the evening. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and utensils, be sure to bring your own shampoo, body soap, conditioner, coffee, beach towels, ice and garbage bags if you are staying longer than two days. Everything else was well stocked. Great stay! Thank you!!
We really enjoyed our 4 days at this rental. Had everything we needed and then some. With 2 teenagers and a labradoodle, not sure who enjoyed the short walk to the beach and sand. Jacuzzi was clean and modern, great after a day out and about. First time in Florence and would stay at Sandy again. Really needed this time with family after months of stay gone orders and no travel!
This house has an interesting a lay out. I love that it was within walking distance to the beach. Would recommend less chlorine in the hottub.
This house was perfect for our mom's weekend away! We all loved the short walk to the beach and the house itself was full of charm.
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.
Nice quiet location, spacious home with all the amenities. Beautiful views of the ocean and a 2 min walk to the beach.
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.
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.
Relaxing place, nice and quiet at the end of the street. Well-equipped kitchen. Nice hot tub.
House was in great shape will stay again.
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.
We have performed a deep clean of the home and were unable to find any mold. Thank you!
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.
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!
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!
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
Enjoyed but could be better
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.
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
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 .
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.
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!
We went for a friends escape and after we left have now decided this needs to be a yearly vacation for us
Had a great 3 night stay. Perfect for younger kids. Would stay there again.
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.
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
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.
The Property Manager has done a walk through of the home and completed several maintenance items that were waiting to be done. Thanks!
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.
Great house! Good location. Well stocked kitchen. Very comfortable.
Was exactly as advertised. Clean, cozy, and close to the beach. Nice for a short getaway.
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.
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.
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!
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.
This place was great. We rented it for work instead of a hotel. It was perfect.
Nice place. We enjoyed our stay.
9 of us stayed there, ages 1-60. Lots to keep the children (of all ages) busy.
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.
Really appreciated this property enjoyed our stay. Great views
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!
Staying at the Sandy Spur was wonderful! It had everything we needed for a relaxing and fun filled weekend!
Very nice little house. Well furnished and close to everything we wished to do/see.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Vacant was very helpful and easy to work with. We enjoyed working with the company
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.
We loved the Sandy Spur and are already making plans for future visits with friends and family!!
Had everything we needed to complete a great weekend!
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!
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.
Very nice. Short walk to the beach. All enjoyed themselves.
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!
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!!
My fiancÃ© 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!!
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!
Beautiful home, beautiful weather, already looking forward to next time.
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!
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!
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!
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.
Looks like a recent upgrade/remodel of kitchen was completed- very nice. Well stocked with essentials. Definitely would stay here again!
Great place for a family reunion. All ages from 70 to 10 months had a great time. Thanks for a pleasant surprise
Thank you for sharing you family reunion with us. We are glad that this house had everything you needed for you relaxing vacation.
