Recent Crescent City reviews
"What a beautiful home on the ocean. Binoculars were used constantly to view the beauty and wildlife. We hiked trails daily, then relaxed together at night. Campfire on the beach the last night. You won't be disappointed! (Even frisbee golf in town)"Guest: Mary C. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 19, 2014View listing
"We have stayed in this little cabin twice now, and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. It has one bedroom with a double bed, a futon in the living room (that I would guess is also a double), and a nice, big playpen for a baby/toddler to sleep in. We have 3 kids 5 and under, were still comfortable. I'm only sorry that we will outgrow this place, as we have one more on the way. The kitchen is very well stocked. It had everything we needed and more for the meals we made. Michael, Jodie and their son that we met were very kind, friendly people, and it was nice to stay somewhere that the owners genuinely enjoyed our children. The fire pit in the yard is a really nice touch too. Thanks for another nice stay!"Guest: Jeana L. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 1, 2014View listing

"Sue and I stayed in this house the month of July 2014. The house is in a huge clearing in a dense forest, has dozens of windows and many skylights. We entertained 19 family members(at different times) with the backyard firepit being a big hit. This vacation house enjoys one of the best locations on the Pacific Coast: County is over 80% park, 5 min to Walmart, 10 min to ocean, 15 min to Smith River & 30 min to Klamath River. And there was a grill for the fish Sue caught. And Nelda is a very pleasant landlord!"Guest: Sue & Marty Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 8, 2014View listing
