We Thought of Everything - So You Don't Have To.

Book Directly With Owner To Avoid Paying Excessive Booking And Service Fees - Enjoy EXCLUSIVE Use Of All Guest Amenities During Your Stay!

An ideal year-round choice for 1 - 4 guests just 300 feet from beautiful Heceta Beach. This enchanting 3-story Cottage offers a secluded and serene environment sits nestled within shore pines on a 1/3rd acre after-dune, this stylish, thoughtfully appointed home includes a private hot tub; kitchenette; ocean view loft; wood stove; sun-room; patio / firepit; and easy beach access. Walk to nearby eateries or cook and eat in. A great place to relax, storm watch, or celebrate special occasions!


*NOTE: Please read 'OTHER NOTES' (below) prior to booking. Also: The Cottage includes a 1st floor Master Suite with Queen bed and bath. A 2nd Master Suite with Queen bed and bath (on the 2nd floor) will be made available if there are more than two guests in your party. If there are only two of you but you would like to use this 2nd Master Suite, please inform us when booking (there is an extra charge).

This is the ideal place for those who appreciate beautiful, surroundings and thoughtful indoor and outdoor amenities. There really is no other place quite like this Cottage property in the Heceta Beach area. It feels very private and secluded, yet you can walk to the beach and two different popular eateries in just a couple of minutes.

The Cottage is built on an 'after-dune' just 300 feet from the shore and there are squirrels and wild bunnies and many different kinds of birds on the property, as well as the occasional deer. We (the owners) live in what used to be a completely separate house on the opposite side of the property so your privacy is ensured (only a breezeway connects the two houses today).

The Cottage's recently expanded offering now includes an attached garage (with full sized refrigerator); a 3rd floor loft with ocean views; a charming 2nd floor living / dining area with wood-burning stove; and a spacious 1st floor Master Suite with attached courtyard / hot tub area that connects to the kitchenette.

Guests often tell us how much they enjoy celebrating birthdays and wedding anniversaries here, and that they love the privacy and solitude our guest cottage offers. The many indoor and outdoor amenities (e.g., a private covered courtyard / hot tub area attached to the 1st floor Master Suite; a 3rd floor ocean-view loft; a sun-room perfect for reading and relaxing in while listening to the sounds of the surf; beach chairs & mats, a patio with grill and fire-pit, etc), will make it challenging to decide whether to go sight-seeing along the spectacular Oregon Coast or stay "home" to enjoy this all that this lovely property has to offer - Especially when beautiful Heceta Beach is only steps away!

You can also enjoy fun activities like dining and shopping in historical 'Old Town' Florence; sandboarding; dune buggy rides; golfing; hiking the beautiful Oregon Coast trails; or horse-back riding on the beach (ask me for a $10.00 off discount card) - All of which are within a 10 minute car drive away.


The entire North side of this one-third acre property is reserved exclusively for you during your stay. You can also use herbs and vegetables from our garden.

Our Style As Hosts: We are very responsive if you happen to need us but otherwise there's a good chance you won't see us at all during your stay. We do have two well behaved dogs that are kept separate from guests. 
To ensure you get the most out of your stay we recommend you give us your ETA the day of your check-in so we can do our best to be available to give you a brief tour of the property and point out the many indoor / outdoor amenities upon your arrival. Self check-in is also an option.

Oregon Coast Lodging Latest: Vacation Rentals

Published 08/26/2017 at 5:23 PM PDT  
By Oregon Coast Beach Connection staff


Already making a big splash on the central Oregon coast near Florence is a new vacation rental lodging called Heceta Beach Vacation Cottage, which was until very recently simply called Sapphire Sands Vacation Suite. After opening in June, already owner Rebecca Mandeville has expanded. Sapphire Sands opened to rave reviews, even as a tiny bit of luxury a couple hundred feet from the beach. But it just got bigger. 

Now, Mandeville has changed the overall name to Heceta Beach Vacation Cottage to encompass new rental configurations that sleep up to 5 people.

“This vacation rental is INCREDIBLE! The space is clean, beautifully decorated, and stocked with everything you could ever need. The beds were very comfortable and the cozy robes and towels made us feel as if we were staying in a luxury hotel. The hot tub is roomy and clean, and in a cute breezeway connecting the houses. My favorite part was probably the adorable sun-room - a perfect spot for reading when you wake up earlier than your housemates! The proximity to the beach is fantastic - only a few minutes of walking along a nice trail just behind the house and you are smack dab in the middle of Heceta Beach, which was gorgeous and not overly crowded. I appreciated Rebecca's attention to detail, her prompt communication, and her obvious passion for pleasing her guests. We also went for a horseback ride on the beach. It was fantastic; the cherry on top to a truly wonderful weekend! We will be back again soon, I'm sure!”
