I stay at a lot of rentals on the coast. This might be my favorite.
We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is only 1/2 block from old town. The views are gorgeous. It’s very quiet even with the bridge next door. Only a slight hum from the bridge but you barely notice it. We never turned on the heater and just used the little electric fireplace and it heated the entire apartment with wonderful ambiance. It’s nicely stocked with all the amenities you would need. We will definitely stay here again.
Great views of the river! This cozy condo is perfect for 1-3 people. Had everything we needed in the kitchen, tons of games and puzzles. When we return to Florence, this is where we'll stay.

This condo is a perfect place to find peace and renewal. We watched the river and wildlife, read, sketched, and took long walks. What a perfect way to reset one’s life for a new year!
This was our second visit to River Vista condo! Love the views and the condo is very comfortable and well equipped. We love visiting Old Town and the Waterfront Depot was excellent!
We enjoyed our stay at River Vista. It rained most mornings but stopped long enough in the afternoon for us to enjoy the short walk to the Florence Old Town shops and restaurants. The rest of the time we enjoyed the view of the river and bridge from our patio windows.
I’m so glad we had the chance to stay at River Vista. What a gem of a place. And Florence is so fun to explore.
Love it here. We will be back!
River Vista is a lovely condo with a fantastic view. Within walking distance to Old Town Florence. Enjoyed sitting out on the deck sipping wine, watching sea birds and taking in the beautiful view.
We loved everything about this! The only thing I would add is that the cars going over the bridge can be loud at night. Would definitely recommend this!
We had a really great experience at this beautiful condo and would totally recommend it. However, there was some wear and tear that could use some maintenance.
As of August 4th, 2020, the cold water handle on the bathtub was broken off so getting the right temperature required adding cold water from the sink. On the upside, there's lots of hot water! Other issues were that the hallway and bedroom closets came off their rails and one cabinet in the bathroom has a loose screw. Lastly, the sliding door in the bedroom could still be pulled open when locked (but it's the third floor, so we still felt safe). Be aware that the bed is quite soft.
These were all things that are easy to work around and otherwise the condo was amazing - well stocked kitchen, lots of towels, great views, convenient location. It was super cozy, and we enjoyed watching the light fade over the river as we sat in the upholstered rocking chairs in the evenings. We would definitely go back to this condo.
Hi, Ann! Thank you for staying with us, and for bringing to our attention some areas in the home that need TLC. We have followed up with our local property caretaker who will have these issues addressed as soon as the home is vacant next. We are glad that despite these shortcomings you were able to enjoy the home and all that it has to offer! We look forward to having the opportunity to host you in the future!
Excellent condo with an extremely well equipped kitchen. Very spacious patio area with amazing views. Very well kept and clean!
We just loved this home away from home. Sunshiny deck morning and night, comfy bed, well-equipped kitchen, a supply of amazing movies, the list goes on. In walking distance to historic Florence, our favorite place. You can unwind and explore the town.
This condo is as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures! I’ve stayed at many vacation rentals and this is one of the most well stocked places I’ve stayed. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was large and with dual vanities/sinks, my husband and I could get ready at the same time. The deck might have been my favorite feature. We spent lovely mornings and afternoon enjoying the view and even saw a seal playing in the river right in front of us one day. The location of Florence was perfect for all the day trips we took. Book your stay! You won’t regret it!
The home interior was beautiful, the aesthetics were a wonderful blending of the outdoors with the indoors. However, the exterior is riddled with spiderwebs, unswept lint on the exterior walkways, etc... The property manager needs to do his job on behalf of the owners of these Condominiums!!!
Hi James, thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback on your recent stay at River Vista! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed this serene home and the stunning views. We are sorry that the exterior of the home needed some attention and upkeep. We strive for a standard of excellence in ensuring the home is clean and accommodating for our guests. If there are any concerns or areas in need of additional attention, we hope to be notified so we can make sure any issues are addressed. We have passed your comments to our local team so they are aware of the areas that need some TLC. We hope to host you again soon for another relaxing getaway!
We absolutely love this little getaway it’s so clean cozy and just beautiful views second time we’ve stayed and there will be a third We love it
The apartment was comfortable. The appliances were of good quality. And, it appeared that the owners must visit now and then, as there were plenty of kitchen utensils and spices and cooking oil in the cupboards.
We loved the view as the tides changed. The bridge view was great. The windows are well-insulated, so the auto/truck noise wasn't a problem.
And, it was easy to walk down the street to the restaurants and shops of Old Town Florence.
It was the perfect location for relaxing weekend.
Just minutes away from old town Florence so clean and all the comforts of home!! We can’t wait to stay again!
Cozy little nest with everything you need to feel like a home away from home.
Loved the riverfront setting. Very clean. Condo was as described. The only thing I would add is that the bed frame corner is super sharp. You can’t see it due to the blankets. My husband hit his shin on it. They added padding to one side but not the other side. Besides that, no complaints!
loved the comforts of the linens, the shower was great, the bed was comfortable the furniture was comfortable. The kitchen was equipped well and I also loved that whomever owns it had some personal touches to it, games, shipwreck book. We were stuck inside during the wildfires so we watched movies and had some downtime..couldn't get outside at all for a day or two.
Loved the River view and cleanliness of this property. Thank you to all involved in making this an enjoyable stay!
Great location, view, and wish we could have stayed longer
Great, comfortable home on the water with a grill and balcony. Great old downtown location. Had everything we needed in the kitchen. Recommend Homegrown and Mari's restaurants downtown.
Cottage is cozy and clean. Back yard need lots of attention we almost got hit by a falling branch and there was a pair of dirty underwear left in the yard along with glass and garbage.
Hi Leanne! Thank you for staying with us. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home. We appreciate your feedback regarding the condition of the yard and have since addressed these concerns with our local staff. We welcome the opportunity to improve the Vacasa experience. We hope to host you again!
Perfect location right in town, wonderful views of the bridge and river. Accommodating and responsive hosts. 5 stars. Thanks again!
We loved the view, location & cleanliness of this home. One thing to keep in mind is that it is located on the 3rd level with no elevator. We are in our 50's and had difficulty carrying our luggage, food, etc. up the winding stairs. Other than that, this is a wonderful place to stay and we would highly recommend it!
This home was clean and well stocked with everything you need. There are games, movies, music and other things to do at the house. You really should take a very short walk to Old Town and eat at Travelers Cove.
Very nice condo. Great location. My 1st choice in accomodations, whenever visiting Florence!
The home was lovely, well equipped and in a perfect location. I do wish they offered an early check in and late check out option however. We had to sit in our car for 3 hours waiting to enter and were told it was because of the cleaning crew, but the cleaning crew was not there the entire time. We would have been willing to pay extra but they wouldn't budge. Seemed pointless as the place was empty and clean but I guess that's their policy.
Awesome little condo with everything you’ll need and more! Very nice view of the river, bridge, and dunes.
I recently stayed at River Vista and the home and location could not be more perfect.
As described and better. We had a wonderful stay.
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!
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.
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!!
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
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!
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.
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!!
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!
The bridge was magnificent, the lights. The wildlife, great viewing. Closeness to dining and shopping in Old Town.
First rate amenities, convenient location, good value
Had a great view with a relaxing atmosphere, would highly recommend!
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!
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.
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.
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.
Clean, comfortable; traffic noise not a problem this time of year.
condo was super. location unparalleled. The town is terrific. there is nothing not to like.
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!
Location can't be beat for exploring Old Town Florence and the Dunes.
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.
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!!
Amazing views and location. Condo was perfect and very comfortable. Would love to come back and stay again
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.
Very clean and spacious-had all the amenities and right by old town.
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!
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.
The condo was very comfortable with a great calming view of the river. Check in was easy.
Condo was conveniently located and nicely decorated. We had no issues and would love to stay again
The location and river/ bridge was wonderful. The condo was spacious and well appointed. Everything you need to feel right at home.
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.
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.
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!!
Girls vacation! We enjoyed everything about this condo!!!! The attention to detail was spot on... we will be back!
Location, view, the books the home, artwork very comfy.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Perfect place to stay for Old Town Florence
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
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.
Felt like home, everything was thought of to make your stay comfortable. Very clean and wonderful decor. AMAZING views, love the bridge!
Modern clean place, very comfortable and centrally located. Enjoyed the view from the deck. Would definitely stay here again if in Florence.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Good location, not too noisy as others have commented.
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.
Very nice and fully accommodating condo. Would love to come here again.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
#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.
Very clean, great location, beautiful trip overall. Will stay again.
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
Loved the river view. Would stay again.
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.
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!
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!
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
Great location. Beautiful view. On the bayfront but also very private
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.
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.
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!
This place is walking distance to Old Town and a lot of options for meals and shopping and viewing of the river.
Great Time. Great location! Great little condo! Great Weather! Just GREAT!
Hope to stay here again.
The stay was great. Please do something about all that sunshine we got though.
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.
The condo was even better than advertised, we had a great long weekend there.
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.
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.
Great condo, location,amenities.
No improvements needed.
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!
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.
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.
This place had everything that was promised and more. We had a great time.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
