  • So very peaceful.

    "I wasn't sure that an overnight would be enough to really relax...but it was. The combination of soaking in the hottub under the redwood trees just before bedtime and then again just before breakfast, and no internet or phone was the rest we needed! The kitchen had all the tools and utensils we needed for a delicious home cooked meal, and the couch was comfy and long enough for my exceptionally tall partner to stretch out on for a nap. My 12 year old loved the reading nook, and our dog loved the yard. We also found a really beautiful beach, I think it's called Cook's beach? a mile or two north of town, and had pretty decent BBQ in town. We will be back, hopefully for a longer stay next time!"

  • Weekend in the Woods

    "We had a great time at the Rustic Retreat for Spring Break. Unfortunately it rained the whole time we were there but we still tried to enjoy the outdoors. The Redwood forest is only 10 min down the road and was nice to hike through. The river is just down the hill from the cabin and my son enjoyed throwing rocks in the water and exploring. Be prepared for absolutely no cell service. The Wifi and cabin phone were down while we were there so that made it difficult. We were prepared to be secluded but I was hoping for some connection just for safety's sake. The cabin is just right for 2-3 people. It has everything you need for a quiet little getaway. Towels and robes are provided for the hot tub. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. And the heaters worked well in both rooms. The whole property is beautiful and welcoming. Felt like our own little resort. If you choose to drive in be prepared and comfortable with gravel terrain. I would definitely suggest having a truck. We did it twice (once to unload and once to reload). Other than that we just parked and walked across the bridge. Directions are as clear as they can be but you have to be ready for an adventure. All in all we had a great time and would definitely return!"

  • Ft. Bragg ocean view is fantastic!

    "The Point Liberty vacation rental turned out to be everything as advertised, plus more. You will be hard pressed to find a property with such outstanding proximity to the ocean and 180 degree view. The home was equipped with nearly everything you would need to have an extremely comfortable and enjoyable stay. Fishing off the rocks turned out to be pretty decent, too. We caught several Kelp & Rock Greenling and Striped Surf Perch right off the rocks. The proximity to FT. Bragg is also a plus if you need necessities or just want to go in to town for other shopping, lunch or dinner."

  • Trinidad Gem

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: First time to the Redwood Coast and considered ourselves fortunate to have decided to stay in Trinidad, what we now consider the best location in the area (easy access to beach trails, adequate restaurant and food options, and short drives to many outstanding additional attractions, beaches, etc). The Whalesong was perfect for our family of four with plenty of room for everyone to spread (in or out) but also spend cozy time together eating, playing games, and watching movies. This house built in the early 70's so don't expect perfection (although the house and gardens are clearly very well maintained), but do expect charm. House could easily accommodate more than 4, but single small shower might be a challenge for larger groups. Kitchen is well stocked and rest of house has just about everything you'll need for a comfortable stay."

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!
