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 while the front room has a futon. 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.

Old Town Eureka
Old Town Eureka
We enjoyed our stay. The furniture and bed were very comfortable for us, a 6 foot tall couple. The kitchen had nice dishes, and the location can't be beat for old town Eureka. One surprise was the enormous curtain in the bed room falling to the floor at 4:30 am, but our host was quick to have the inadequate plastic hardware updated to metal hardware. The bedroom door and the bathroom door do not quite close, but we managed just fine being only one couple. The toilet is one of those older short ones and the stairs are a bit more than one floor because of the lovely high ceilings, but if you are able to manage them they are just an inconvenience. Overall we loved the rental.. especially for the high ceilings, tall windows, historic building design, the location where we could walk all over old town, and the comfortable furniture and bed. Though street parking is limited to 2 hrs between 9 and 6 Mom-Fri, there is a free parking lot on the block that has plenty of space after business hours. During our week stay we managed to use only the street parking below the rental by visiting other areas during the hours of 11 and 4. No problem.

We had a great stay in this building. We loved being close to the water and right in the old part of downtown Eureka. The apartment was clean, light and comfortable with all the needed amenities. I look forward to choosing this rental property again.

Owner response: Thank you for your stay, I hope that HSU graduation ceremony was a special family occasion for you. Joe
Our biggest issue was the worn condition of the mattress that left one of us with back issues after a week. There could have been a couple of more towels for 2 adults and the kitchen was sticky.

Owner response: I do appreciate 4 out of 5 stars and thank the guest for their review. The mattress is 18 months old and is categorized as a Firm mattress. We purchased a padded mattress cover a few months back so that guests can have the choice of a firm or soft mattress. We provide a complete rental agreement to our guests that even detail the amount of linens that will be provided with their stay, if the guest would have indicated they needed additional towels prior to their arrival we would have been happy to provide them. As to the kitchen I have tried to contact the guest to get more detail about the condition of the kitchen so that I can talk with housekeepping, as of writing my reply I have not heard back from them. I know that the kitchen floor is mopped in between each stay at the condo. It is possible that there is an accumulation of Pinesol cleaner on the floor that may have made it appear sticky.

Had a fantastic long weekend in Old Town, took in the Jazz Festival and the sun was out as well. This is a great location to stay at in Eureka. The king size bed was comfortable and the condo was clean. We will stay here again. Thanks Joe & Dolores!

Owner response: Thank you for your stay, maybe next time you can catch the Blues by the Bay Festival. Don’t forget that the 1st Saturday of each month is the Arts Alive in Old Town. Joe
This place was great! My husband and I went to Eureka after the New Year to unwind from the holidays. This place is in a great location right in the middle of Old Town. There are restaurants and coffee houses just outside of you door. We walked on the Boardwalk just a half a block away and after had a carriage ride tour of Old Town. The condo is nicely appointed and clean. We had a question after we arrived and it was very easy to get in contact with the owner whose office is just around the corner.

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.

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.
