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.

Very casual and very clean. Just right for a small family or close friends. Great beach access, beach decor and cozy sun room. A bit lacking in bathroom ambiance but handy washer and dryer. I would rent it again.

To start, what a wonderful town Florence is. So much t do with great food options. The Bungalow was an added treat to our stay. We felt like the Haceda beach area was almost private. So great location, with great access to the beach. The wine with the sand dollar, and the personal note was a great touch. It made my family feel at home. We spent a long day on the beach and dunes. Coming to the bungalow felt like coming home. Thank you for all the games we enjoyed as a family. I could go on and on, but I want to make sure this place is available for our next vacation .Thank you so much!!!!!
