  • Beautiful views, beautiful home - highly recommend Shalimere.

    "Easily the best coastal rental I've ever experienced (we hope to return)! The owner of Shalimere has a great eye for detail - every amenity is available and then some. We immediately felt both at home and pampered. The kitchen, dining room, living room, and wrap-around porch are all great for lounging and relaxing or entertaining. The home itself is lovely and beautifully decorated with an amazing view of Point Arena lighthouse and the ocean. We saw migrating gray whales just beyond the cliff on our last day (in March). Lots of great nearby beaches, rocky headlands, and wildlife (besides whales we saw lots of bird life - hummingbirds everywhere, harbor seals, sea lions, and dolphins from the lighthouse). Irish Beach is awesome, short drives to the lighthouse, Point Arena wharf, Manchester, Bowling Ball Beach, Elk, and Mendocino great for day trips and shopping/dining excursions. An all around great setting for vacation memories - highly recommended!"

  • Really added to our our stay!

    "We were up to beautiful Humboldt County for Thanksgiving with family who have lived in the area for some time. We thought we started looking for a place to stay early, including some of Ann's other listings but they were fast being booked. Ann was immensely helpful and pleasant and we ended up at the Victorian, renting the entire house. What a place! Large, comfortable, well equipped (although I didn't find an apple corer for the pie I was taking to TG, LOL, but the kitchen had about everything else you could ever need!), wifi worked well, beautiful view to watch the fog and clouds move over the bay, and really nice artwork (paintings, photos, glass), many magazines and information to peruse. Easy and central location in Arcata. My relatives who live up there came over and really enjoyed the fact that an old Victorian was being cared for. Ann's a very nice person to work with and an excellent business woman, she made the transaction easy and the product was memorable! We'll see you again, Ann!"

  • Happy Rest

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a good time, even though it is a small place. The beds are comfortable, but the upstairs bedroom people have to go downstairs and through the kitchen to use the bathroom. That is a bit inconvenient. But the view is wonderful. There is some traffic noise since the house is so close to the road, but not too bad. It is beautiful here, and we found it restful. It seemed very clean except that the floor needed mopping. The couches were clean, but a bit saggy. Loved sitting outside in the adirondack chairs."

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! The Skunk Train is a great way to explore more than 40 miles of forest, rivers and natural scenery from Fort Bragg to Willits. 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!
