Thank you for making my birthday mini-holiday so special, sharing your beautiful property and suite with us! I could not have asked for more – a charming, cozy place to stay and the ocean!! You made us feel so welcome…You even put ‘Happy Birthday’ on your little chalkboard – I will never forget that. I loved your spot out back, with the fairy Enid, and took some great pictures! I loved everything, from the well-appointed kitchenette to the adorable Q-tip holder in the bathroom! I wish we were staying loner and I am so glad I found your place, it is truly beautiful and relaxing – not to mention, Rebecca, you are delightful with such positive energy – thank you!!! Thank you!!! K & J (First VRBO Guests!)

Rebecca’s place was absolutely lovely. It was perfect for our one night stay, but we would have loved to stay longer to utilize all the amenities including the grill and sun room. The hot tub was so wonderful to soak in at the end of the day, and the place is cozy and feels secluded even though you are a close drive to town. The suite was well-stocked with everything you’d need to cook for yourself, and the bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets in case you get chilly. All in all, a fantastic place to stay with tons of thoughtful details, such as robes and a picnic hamper, and a very friendly and helpful host in Rebecca. Would stay again for sure!

This new suite was fantastic! Rebecca was a great host with just the right amount of personal interaction. We thoroughly enjoyed our Anniversary trip to the beautiful Oregon Coast. Rebecca has outfitted this space with a generous abundance of amenities and supplies in the kitchenette and bathroom. Everything was tip-top clean and fresh. The private hot tub right next to the room was a real treat. Access to the beach was super easy – a 3 minute walk. The bed was new and extremely comfy. TV, DVD player, great wi-fi, etc. They had beach chairs and mats, wood for a fire, cooler, BBQ grill, sun room, patio space, etc, etc. Great place for a ROMANTIC GETAWAY!!!

“What a wonderful stay I ‘ve had! Rebecca and John were great hosts who thought of everything to make her guests comfortable – From the robes and Turkish towels for the hot tub to the many kitchen appliances. The decor is so pretty and soothing, reminding one why they came to the beach. A couple of my favorite things were the inviting sitting area off of the bedroom (bring a cup of ta and a book) and the sun room in the beautiful yard. If you love artsy shops, be sure to visit the downtown area and say hello to Linda and her husband at Treasure Bay. Stop at Mo’s for clam chowder. C&M Stables offers many different horseback rides. We had a fantastic ride on the beach led by Hug and Emily. Dress for the wind!” – Reviewed by P.S., California

“O Glorious Retreat!! I have come to know you. And we’re the first. And so proud to be the 1st (paying) guests prior to your official May 18th opening. It feels like someone has given me the ultimate spa vacation yet so quiet and peaceful; so warm and inviting – the perfect place to go within. A retreat in the deepest sense of the word, soothing and comfy. We both got the best sleep of our lives! The bed is magical! We enjoyed exploring Florence, particularly Bay St has plenty of good food. We ate our faces off. We brought a bunch of old movies and only sunshine and hunger caused us to leave the warmth, beauty, and comfort of the cottage. And don’t get me started on the hot tub! Thank you for being truly HOT and so easily available (right next to the suite). We enjoyed the privacy and attention to detail with everything. One of my favorite experiences was horseback riding through the trails across the sand dunes and along the beach. It was incredibly beautiful. C&M Stables were awesome with a wonderful staff and lovely horses. All skill levels got to do their thing. Thanks to Rebecca for arranging our ride with little notice and enabled us to take advantage of our one day of sunshine. Best of all are Rebecca and John themselves. They made every accommodation for us down to the smallest detail. They were present when we needed them but they also gave us the space and privacy we craved as well. We deeply appreciated the smoking area and how respectful they were. These are lovely people with a delicious and lovely light of a space. Thank you. The most content ‘guinea pigs’ ever! Love and Peace” Reviewed by S & K, Oregon (From K: “Love it Love it Love it. Good place to meditate!”)

 

Peggy Joyce-Hoffner reviewed Sapphire Sands Vacation Suite – Heceta Beach, Florence, Oregon5 star

What a privilege it was to be the first guest at the recently opened Sapphire Sands Vacation Suite in beautiful Heceta Beach in Florence, Oregon. You can do everything or nothing, whatever suits your mood or fancy. The birds, the trees, the flowers, hearing the crashing waves of the nearby ocean, enjoying the outdoors and local beach walks, relaxing in the sunroom reading a book. Lovely walks in nature. All this and just a few minutes away from downtown Florence. The suite is a true deluxe suite with wonderful amenities and furnished with everything you need to enjoy your stay, including a kitchenette that has everything you need. Rebecca the owner and host really went all out to create the ideal Boutique vacation Suite. All the little details and touches and comforts were very much appreciated. I highly recommend Sapphire Sands if you’re looking for comfort and luxury at a great price on the Oregon coast.
