Eureka condo description

Thank you for your interest in our vacation rental. We have a comfortable 1 bedroom/1 bathroom condo located above 108 F St in Eureka, on the waterfront in the Old Town district. The vacation rental is on the second floor of a historic Eureka building, there is no elevator available in the building. This location is in the center of Old Town half a block to the waterfront to the North and next to the Gazebo to the South. The bedroom has a king size bed. The living room has 2 comfortable leather chairs, a leather couch and a flat screen television with DirectTv. The condo has 6 large widows giving plenty of natural light and views of the waterfront and Old Town. In the kitchen you will find a full selection of cooking pots and pans and basic cooking tools to help you out. There are dishes and glassware for 4 guests, even the martini glasses; of course there is a built in microwave oven and dishwasher. One of the great things about Old Town is that when you walk out the door you have the choice of many restaurants, coffee houses and a couple of local bakeries. During the spring and summer Old Town has its on horse carriage to take in a very unique tour of Old Town. Marty and his horse Cinnamon can be seen out the South window where they pick up passengers, look for them in our pictures below. Vehicle parking is on-street.

Eureka is a city of almost 30,000 located on the Pacific North coast of California. We have an active arts community with a monthly Arts Alive Night on the first Saturday of each month in Old Town, there are also many local art galleries for viewing or purchasing art. Humboldt State University has its own gallery in Old Town on First Street with student and faculty exhibits and out of the area artist shows. There is a wide variety of restaurants to be found in Eureka and we would be happy to give you some ideas of how to choose your meals out. In Henderson Center there is a great local bakery for morning pastries and coffee drinks. Humboldt County has a bounty of outdoor activities to be enjoyed at our local beaches and forest areas.

Eureka is a 4 hour and 45 minute drive north of San Francisco and 120 miles west of Redding. Whether you want to escape the urban population of the Bay Area or the heat of Redding, Eureka is a great choice.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1964

          About the owner: Over the last 4 years we have converted 4 of our long term rentals in Eureka to vacation rentals. We have lived in Eureka all our lives and enjoy sharing our community with others. We manage our own vacation rental so you can be assured that you will be interacting with the owner of the property instead of a third party property manager. Thank you for looking at our property for you possible stay in Eureka. Have a safe trip.

          Why the Owner Chose Eureka:
          My father grew up in what is now known as the Old Town area of Eureka in the 1930’s. As a local paperboy he admired this building which was a hardware store at the time. The building was purchased in 1964 by my family. We were one of the first people to renovate our Old Town building in the early 1970’s prior to Eureka participating in redevelopment. Old Town is now one of the jewels of Eureka

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          The vacation rental is located half a block from the Waterfront. The view to the North is of the Waterfront, the view to the South is the Old Town Gazebo. Located on the second floor with many windows the vacation rental is a great place to take in the view or do some people watching. Walk out the front door and there are many restaurants and shopping establishments to choose from.
