Dog-Friendly Beach House w/ Spectacular Ocean Views & Easy Access to the Beach!
Welcome to the Lofty Pelican! This contemporary beach home has a very open and airy feeling with 20-foot high cathedral ceilings, natural wood beams, and sweeping ocean and sunset views. From this home’s 24-foot long front deck you can relax to the sounds of crashing waves while sipping a favorite beverage in bliss. Plus, you are only steps away from access to Heceta Beach with its miles of sandy shoreline!
The main living space is on the second floor and features floor-to-ceiling windows to showcase the open concept and ocean views in every direction. The well-appointed, full kitchen comes complete with a refrigerator, electric range, microwave, and yes, even a dishwasher! Everything you need to prepare and enjoy your fresh catch seafood dinner. The primary bedroom is also located on the main floor and features a new queen-size bed with a luxurious memory foam mattress, dresser, and a 32” Roku Smart TV (one of three Roku TVs in the home). There is also a two-car garage with a convenient bathroom and a laundry room with a full-size washer/dryer on the first floor, so you can pack light and keep up on those salty and sandy clothes. There is a second toilet in the garage.
The upstairs loft provides even more living space to enjoy your time at the beach. Whether playing one of the musical instruments provided, relaxing on the sofa and watching TV, or sitting at the table playing cards or board games, you’re sure to have a fun time with family and friends.

This is our second time staying at the Lofty Pelican. Great location, great beds. The kitchen needs more than one frying pan, and some wooden spoons. Some extra blankets would be nice for relaxing on the couch

We loved our stay at the Lofty Pelican! It was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The view is fantastic. Beach access is a very short walk away. Basically, everything we needed in a very pretty package. Will absolutely return.

We loved the location, we literally walked five minutes down the block to the beach and we could hear and see the ocean from the deck perfectly. We also loved the loft area because it gave our teen daughters their own area to hang out while we could have more privacy in the bedroom on the main floor.

We love this property. This is the second time we've stayed here. It's a short walk to the beach and a short drive to town. The house is always very clean. There are amenities such as a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Views are fabulous. We highly recommend!
Corina C.Jun 2022
Loved the view and so close to the beach! Clean and everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing get away:)
Jordan O.May 2022
Cute place, very light and bright with the big windows. Loved being able to see the ocean from the house. Nice little deck outside. We would definitely come back again. :)
Katie D.Nov 2021
Great location and cozy place with a wood stove and views of the ocean but I took off a star because there was black mold in the window sills, random hairs in the bathroom, and dust and dirt on the couches. Housekeeping standards were not up to par but the place was great. We let Vacasa know and they did not do anything yet to mitigate the situation. For the cost of cleaning fees we pay it was pretty frustrating and disappointing.
Hi, Katie! We're so glad the location worked well for you and do apologize if we missed providing service as it was our understanding that you did not want to be interrupted. A deep clean has been done. Thank you!

Lofty Pelican exceeds expectations! We stayed last year for two weeks and loved it so much we stayed again this year for two weeks.

If you are able bodied and can do stairs, this is a fabulous getaway for your family and furbabies! Great view, easy ocean access, and everything you need for a respite. Kids will love the loft and parents can join in on the fun as the spiral staircase is very sturdy. Love having a sand off feet hose at the entrance and a fenced yard for pups and kids. We had an amazing time.
Allison .Jul 2021
The Lofty Pelican was comfortable, clean and in a perfect location. We were able to walk down a short path to the beach in minutes. We watched sunsets right from the front deck. We had space to play board games. The kitchen was well stocked with pans and dishes to cook our meals. We also dined at Homegrown (delicious). Overall, an excellent spot for a family vacation with variety of activities. we especially enjoyed the Hobbit Trail to the beach and riding ATVs in the nearby dunes.

We loved the Lofty Pelican. Plenty of room for a family. The views of the sunsets and the beach was amazing. My son loved the guitar and the electric keyboard too. Highly recommend this place!
Nadine .Jul 2021
This is our second time staying at one of Leslie`s properties. They are always super clean, cozy, check in is a breeze and they are stocked with everything you need. This particular rental was a hit with the kids who loved the loft area and the musical instruments. Us adults enjoyed the beautiful views, the fully stocked kitchen and the pups enjoyed the fence yard. We cannot wait to be back next 4th of July!

This is the most gorgeous AirBnb ever! The pictures do not do it justice. The view from the porch is amazing, and the inside is gorgeous. The place is very well equipped with everything you will need, with a full kitchen and a super comfortable bed. Additionally, I have to say that this is the CLEANEST place ever! It looked spotless and is very well maintained. The beach is a 2 min walk away and is beautiful. Old Town is about a 15 min drive away and is full of restaurants and cute shops. We also drove out to the Dunes to do some riding, and it was super fun. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful place! We will be back.

Robin .Apr 2021
Cute, comfortable, great view and so so close to beach. Will be back! Added bonus for doggies is the fenced yard!

Great place! Super open and airy! Wonderful host!
Scott .Feb 2021
The lofty pelican was exactly what we needed for a few days of decompression. It had beautiful large windows and awesome heaters even without the wood burning fireplace. Would stay again.
Cindy .Jan 2021
What a perfect place with ocean view and easy beach access. We loved this place. Nice big deck, huge glass windows, well stocked. The place was spotlessly clean. Only one bathroom inside house, but we discovered a extra toilet in garage which came in handy. My sister and I plus our niece and her son all slept comfortably. One private bedroom and additional beds in loft. Loft was a nice big space with spiral staircase leading up to it. I would stay here again.
