Property Description

Your second story two-bedroom two bath retreat is centrally located in the heart of Old Town Florence. The area is known for great restaurants, shops, art galleries, an ice cream and chocolate shops, pubs and wine tasting, and for it's natural beauty including the majestic Siuslaw River.

Most everything is within walking distance, while the ocean beaches, National Dunes, and golf courses are a quick 10 minutes drive from Historic Old Town. Florence was voted number one - most beautiful places by Expedia in 2017!!!

The freshly redecorated space has new furniture, paint and carpet. The rooms are filled with gallery quality art from both local and nationally acclaimed artists. The unit is 1400 square feet with a large 250 square foot deck overlooking the scenic river and views of the beautiful and historic Siuslaw Bridge. The deck is complete with seating and BBQ, perfect for relaxing while watching all the fishing and crabbing vessels depart and return from the Pacific Ocean.

The large master bedroom (street side) has a flat screen TV and additional comfy seating, a king sized bed with new linens. The master bath features a Jacuzzi tub and shower, with a separate double sink between the master bed and bath. The smaller bedroom has a queen bed, affords views of the river, separate deck access, and a bathroom just steps away. The kitchen is fully furnished with island seating in addition to the dining room seating for six.

Other amenities include a washer/dryer, two flat screens w/cable, internet connection, and a reserved parking space less than one block from the unit. Trailer, RV and oversized vehicle parking is available in the port parking area -one block from the Tides condo.

Sorry no pets, and no smoking anywhere in or around the building. The second story condo is accessible by stairs only - no elevator.

While there are beautiful views of the Siuslaw River and Siuslaw Bridge, there is no bridge noise as we are located several blocks from the bridge and not near enough to hear the traffic or occasional construction.

Please be aware that this condo is located in the heart of Old Town with restaurants, and shops all around. Most businesses open at 10 am and close at 8 pm. There is a restaurant neighbor that features live music three nights per week. The spot is popular with both locals and vacationers. The music ends promptly at 9 pm and the restaurant closes at 10 pm. While the deck and guest bedroom are peaceful at all times, there is some street activity on weekends especially, until 10 or 11 o'clock.

There is a farmers market that is open daily through September located one block away on the port property. At the end of the boardwalk there a convenience market with all the basics and fabulous wine selection. Located on the docks is a fish market and there are boats often in port with freshly caught seafood.

During the summer months the boardwalk has a crafters market that is open Friday and Saturdays. Many local and regional crafters are showing off their wares.

Great getaway spot

We really enjoyed this condo. The location could not be more perfect. Once you park your car you would never need it again. You are located in the heart of Old Town surrounded by shops and restaurants. Yes, you do hear the music from the restaurant below quite well, however, as stated it ended promptly at 9:00 pm. It really was not an issue for us.... Read More

Nice but not handicap accesible

Steps are dangerous and it would be a great idea to put a gate across the top of the steps to prevent accidents if you where to fall you are going to be severly injured. Parking is not convenient. Location is great condo is well equipped and spacious. A second hand rail would be most useful coming up the steps.

We were surprised at the size and layout of The Tides.

Very nice location and it made for a relaxing weekend vacation. Hope to bring some family next trip! Hour long tour of the Sand Dunes was Great!
