  • HIDDEN GEM

    "Stayed here for 3 nights celebrating my husband's 75th. Peaceful, clean, private, QUIET, unplugged. Sure beats staying in any slammer (hotels). LOVED IT. Dreaming of coming back. Thank you, Jill. Donna & Jim"

  • Great spot for families at graduation

    "We made our last trip to Arcata to celebrate our last HSU graduate. This was by far the most fun we've had as far as properties to stay in. The cabin was equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed quiet time on the deck, reading and having coffee in the morning and then celebrating with our graduate and her friends one evening. We brought along a propane fire pit which allowed us to spend time outdoors in the evening comfortably. Two 80 year old's shared the downstairs bed and we younger 50 something year olds shared the very comfortable living area in the loft. We headed east one afternoon just a short distance and found Mad River, had an enjoyable picnic there one sunny afternoon. At night we found the Blue River (smokey, cough cough) Casino and won some money, too! Farmers Market on Saturday is always a must. I think it would have been nice to have a microwave at the cabin; if only for the reason that we like our coffee HOT! Krista, the owner, rescued us on more than one occasion, she was wonderful to loan us an iron and board, and to open up the cabin when we locked the keys inside...should have paid more attention to that advice to leave key in the lockbox...Almost sad that we don't have any more kids at HSU cause we would definitely rent this place again!!!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We were here last month for a birthday getaway and simply loved it. We lucked out with wonderful weather so we were able to enjoy the deck and hot tub to the fullest. Everything was perfectly clean and quite comfortable. It was delightful!"

  • Beautiful home in Sea Ranch

    "My Family and I had a great weekend at this Sea Ranch home! Super cozy with a great fireplace and lovely kitchen. The upstairs loft was warm and cozy and the downstairs rooms were great with plenty of space for the 6 of us! The Living room was perfect for hanging out with the family and playing board games. Loved the hot tub- we spent every night in the tub listening to the waves crash on the beach. It is a beautiful area with trails and beaches to explore, we even took a bike ride around town! Jeff was great and was readily availble if we had any questions or concerns. Thanks for the great weekend!"

North Coast Travel Tips

The Beauty of North California Coast Vacation Rentals

The Northern California coastline is famous for its beautiful beaches, historic lighthouses and miles of hiking trails through the giant redwood trees in the national state parks. The area is a paradise for nature-lovers who can anticipate seeing herds of elk or migrating whales, depending upon the season. With quiet sandy beaches offering strolls along the water’s edge, museums, wineries and quaint little towns, the spectacular coastline is what keeps visitors returning time and time again to recharge their batteries and de-stress from their busy lives. A luxury vacation home or log cabin offers the perfect retreat.

The Many Benefits of North California Coast Vacation Rentals

For those looking for an away-from-it-all vacation in the midst of beautiful natural surroundings, a vacation rental is the perfect place to stay. Whether you want an ocean view Mendocino home or a secluded Ukiah cabin amidst towering redwoods, there will be something perfect to suit your needs. For those travelling with children, vacation rentals offers the perfect relaxed lodging. Youngsters have room to play, teenagers will enjoy a second TV and internet access and in-laws will appreciate their own private space too. Calculate the cost of a vacation rental home per head and it adds up to a great deal.

Those enjoying outdoor pursuits will welcome the space to store all-weather gear and sports equipment. Return home to a long soak in the warm bath or outdoor hot tub. A home-cooked meal around the fire or outdoors on the porch makes the perfect end to a relaxing day out. Cost, comfort and convenience are the three Cs of a good vacation rental. Enjoy all the modern amenities and comforts of a luxury home-away-from-home as your base for exploring this delightful area.

Things to do From Your North California Coast Lodging

Choosing somewhere with plenty of attractions and things to do is key to avoiding bored children. North California has a host of attractions and unique things to do to suit the most difficult-to-please family!

These colorful steam or diesel locomotives have been running for over 125 years and offer trips lasting anything from four to seven hours in length. Those who enjoy architecture will want to visit the William Carson Mansion, one of the most photographed Victorian homes in the U.S. The Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum was rebuilt after the 1906 earthquake and can now be toured. Gourmet food-lovers will want to head for the Sonoma Cheese Factory, or go berry picking on the Country Farm Trails. Arts centers, water parks and botanical gardens are all within easy reach of your North California coast vacation rental. “I’m bored” is not something you are likely to hear on this trip!
