Hi, I'm Leslie!

Whales Watch Vacation Rentals is a small family-owned business specializing in comfortable, privately-owned vacation homes. The owners are people just like yourself, and we know you'll treat their homes with the same pride and care that you do your own.

We have lived here at Heceta Beach since 1994. We enjoy sharing with others what we get to enjoy every day. My husband was from Milwaukee Wisconsin, via Texas & Alaska. And I was originally from Northern, then Southern California. We fell in love with the small town atmosphere, and the temperate climate. It may be rainy, but you don't have to shovel rain, and the Ocean Breezes keep it an even 70 in the summer.

Here are my properties:

Excellent Rental!

“ Excellent ”
June 27, 2014
Our need for a vacation rental was a little unique. My parents were moving to Oregon from California and wanted to do some shopping around for houses. All of their stuff, less a few suitcases of clothes, was in storage in Eugene. They were still very comfortable for a month. This says a lot, Leslie stocked the place with everything they needed to feel comfortable! We were so pleased with the amenities. She had even left us a bottle of wine and an Oregon sand dollar from the beach! The house had a Roku with Netflix, Pandora, and some other TV services we never got to. There were also games and puzzles. We didn't have any children with us, but if we did they would have enjoyed the sand toys. One of the best perks was a book outlining different activities, restaurants, grocery stores etc. In Florence and the surrounding areas. It was nice to have a locals opinion at our fingertips. Also, Leslie was always a phone call away. She was so sweet, checking in to make sure we were comfortable. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Florence. Great location, very clean and comfortable!

Cozy Value

“ Very Good ”
December 3, 2014
If you`re looking for a great value, this is the place. The beach is across the street and the house is warm and dry and comfy.The downside is very little privacy due to glass on the entire north side. Could use some better window treatments to provide privacy at night.The other downside is the bathroom. I nice facelift is in order as this 40 year old mobile home bathroom has never been remodeled. Starting to smell a little moldy. Nice to have laundry but it makes the bathroom pretty cramped.The vacation rental people treated us great and we enjoyed the process very muchWiFi was nice too and we felt very connected to the world while being relaxed at the beachFlorence is amazing. From the beach, Rhododendron Drive takes you all the way back into Old Town. Forget the directions to take 101 and enjoy the old roadNext time we`ll probably go with a different propertyF & B
