This super dog-friendly Florence vacation rental is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in the Heceta Beach area - that means you will be just steps from the sand! With a fully-fenced backyard, comfortable furnishings, and space for up to six guests as well as four dogs, it's a winning location for a quick weekend getaway or a week-long oceanside sojourn (and everything in-between).
The large living room has three sofas so relaxing and lounging around will definitely be encouraged here! And after a long day of playing with the dogs on the beach, you can come back, turn on the flat screen TV, and settle back for an evening of surfing the cable channels or watching a DVD. There's also WiFi so you'll easily be able to make everyone at home jealous with your beach photos and status updates.
A large country-style kitchen has all the major appliances needed to whip up a tasty meal when you don't feel like heading to a restaurant or the grill outside. There's also a dishwasher here so you can get back to enjoying your vacation as soon as possible and not be stuck up to your elbows in soapy dishwater. Meals can be eaten at the kitchen table or out in the living room as a casual snack while watching a movie or playing a board game. Because there's nothing like a make-your-own taco spread and a movie marathon while on vacation!
When it's time for bed, there are two bedrooms to choose from, so everyone will find a spot to lay their head at night. One cozy bedroom has a king-size bed and sitting chair, while the other has an additional queen sized bed, as well as twin bunk beds. Since this property is all on one level, it's also an ideal choice for those who don't want to navigate a lot of stairs. Between the beds and the living room's sleeper sofa, this home will comfortably accommodate up to six guests. And of course, your furry family members are welcome (though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply).
From here, it's just a 10 minute walk to easy beach access at the Driftwood Shores Resort, as well as the Surfside Restaurant on days when you don't feel like slaving away in the kitchen. You can begin your day here for breakfast before heading out to the sand to beach-comb and hunt for shells - in the spring or winter, you can even keep a lookout for migrating whales! And don't worry about keeping your clothes clean while out and about: you can always just do a load of laundry, as you have a washer and dryer back at the house.
A short six mile drive away is the Old Town section of Florence. Here you'll have many more meal choices like crab-encrusted halibut at the Waterfront Depot Restaurant, a bowl of chowder at Mo's, or a fancy fine dining experience at La Pomodori Ristorante. This area also has a lot of shops and galleries to browse, as well as a local coffee roaster for an afternoon pick-me-up. Also nearby for day trips are the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area 45 minutes to the south and the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, about an hour's drive north.
Whether you use this BLK Beach House as a convenient home base for exploring a big stretch of coastline or just stay close and kick back on Heceta Beach, this Florence vacation rental is a great escape for both people and dogs at the scenic Oregon Coast!
