"This home is truly lovely. We spent the first day relaxing in front of the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea. When we needed something different, we just went to another room and sat in front of other floor to ceiling windows... The view is amazing and the house makes the most of it - this is one of those rare homes that somehow feel peaceful and invigorating at the same time.
The kitchen, amenities, etc, were great. We needed nothing more. And keep your eyes peeled for wildlife - we watched two fawns in the back yard, saw an osprey looking for a fish dinner, and had a great time poking around on the beach. We will certainly be back."

Review of Whale Tale Cabin, McKinleyville, California, March, 2015
"The owner and housekeeper and even neighbors were very pleasant to deal with. The cabin was wonderfully comfortable: well stocked cook in kitchen, laundry, plenty of hot water, and a furnace that heats the place up quickly, comfortable beds, a good fireplace, lots of windows, beautiful views, and a hot tub overlooking the Mad River and the ocean. The location is perfect for Redwoods, beaches with magnificent surf, small delicious breweries, shops in Arcadia and Eureka, and we were in time for a Blues Night Festival nearby."

"This is a wonderful family home. The living area downstairs is open so it is a nice place to entertain a medium size group or just hang out and relax. There are two window seats. One is upstairs and the other down in the living area. Both of them get the afternoon sun and are very cozy for curling up with a great book. The views are spectacular!!"

"This was the most unique place we have ever stayed! Jennifer, you have created a wonderful romantic hideaway that is still close to town, good restaurants and shopping, and some of the most beautiful scenery in the U.S. Loved the decor in our "tree house". Our favorite of all vacation spots!"
