Enjoy a camp setting just a block-long stroll to Heceta Beach in this vintage 1964 Airstream Land Yacht. Cheerfully renovated with a pull out sofa bed for two (we can set it up with a cushy memory foam topper for comfort) in the front and two twins mid cabin. Microwave, fridge and coffee maker, work desk. There is second Airstream at camp too, if you are traveling with others. Each with separate outdoor sitting areas. (see Exploding Whale Beach Camp's listing for 2nd Airstream info)

The space
Exploding Whale Beach Camp is great for adventurous couples, singles and small families. There are two Airstreams here so you may have neighbors but seems guests enjoy meeting each other and sharing stories if crossing paths. We’re at the end of a two block-long street amidst shore-pines in a quiet beachy residential area and it can get real dark at night! You can hear the surf, enjoy campfires and stroll through hobbit trails to the dunes and wide stretch of Heceta Beach. Enjoy beachcombing for driftwood, agates and shells. It’s also a great beach for exploring on our fat-tire beach bikes (we have two!) and kite surfing. Camp is walking distance to ocean front dining at Driftwood Shores and to Jerry’s Place, our local bar and grill. Florence's charming Old Town is ten minutes away, as well as numerous lakes, miles and miles of hiking trails and enjoyable sights such as the Heceta Head Lighthouse, the Sea Lion Caves, Thors Well and Cape Perpetua. Wondering why we call this "Exploding Whale Beach Camp”?Do an internet search on The Exploding Whale in Florence and see! This is where it all happened!

Guest access
Camp is on a large sandy lot. We give you check in instructions and directions within the week of your arrival date. You have a private sitting area, your own little charcoal grill and fire pit for hanging out, roasting s'mores and enjoying the stars at night. Sometimes it's windy or chilly or rainy, and that's when games and old videos/dvd's come in handy. The Airstream has an adorable electric-fireplace heater, plenty of warm blankets. It is clean and cozy!

Other things to note
Special Note: Cell phone coverage is sketchy at camp and the last two miles traveling into the area, so make a copy (or snap a picture) of the directions when we send them to you, since GPS often will lead you into a berry patch. Some of the roads were never fully developed in this area. Verizon seems to get best connection. Most guests access wifi for communications.

Location

Florence, Oregon, United States

Quiet area. Safe. We live next to the camp lot and are the only full time residents on the two block long street. We usually end up greeting guests, but sometimes we miss them and rarely even know they're around. We won't bug you but are available for any needs, via text, Airbnb messaging, through our FB page or with a knock on our front door!

My wife, Terry, and I are building out an experiential, private camp here on my property. It is a safe, serene setting and we love living here. We invite you to share in celebrating what this region has to offer.
During your stay
Two Fat Tire Beach Bikes

Private sitting area with table and beach chairs for hanging out.

Campfire ring & Charcoal BBQ

This is a camp setting so the ground can be uneven and a little rustic. Best suited for the sure-footed and light-hearted.

Plumbing is hooked up to the septic so no tanks filling up with 'you-know-what'.

Airstream is equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, eating utensils and some plate ware, mugs, and paper towels.

TV and VCR. We’ve got a stash of old VHS’s for ya!
