  • Great Visit!

    "Truly enjoyed our visit to this home. It was perfect for us as we were looking for a quiet, secluded spot very near the redwoods. We didn't want to drive a long distance to see the trees so this was perfect as it was just minutes away. The house is very rustic with old appliances but we like that. There is nothing fancy here and definitely no mold smells (mentioned in an earlier review). Just a quiet location with a great view and all the basics. We enjoyed the hot tub and the scenery the most. We would come back again!"

  • Off the beaten path

    "We drove to Arcata to spend New Years with our goddaughters. We traveled with their mom and needed a place that would be comfortable for the three of us. Krista's chalet was perfect. Very comfortable. Well provisioned. Our stay there was delightful. As a bonus it was a wonderful gathering place for us all to eat pizza and play games. Here's a few suggestions for future renters: * Don't arrive at night. If you're not familiar with the area, the property is hard to find. The passage under the freeway thru a culvert, the imposing gate, the narrow winding dirt road, the misleading left turn... it was like something out of a 'B' horror movie, except with a happy ending. * The imposing gate looks like it's locked, but it's not. Just push it open. * We had the downstairs apartment and were a bit unlucky a couple nights since the upstairs guest had a 7-year-old who was learning to jump rope. The upstairs noise was more than a little distracting. Fortunately he went to bed early. * There was not really enough towels or blankets. You might think of bringing some extras. * There's no broadcast TV, but there is a DVD. Consider bringing a couple of your favorite movies. Our issues were all very minor. If our goddaughter doesn't graduate soon, we'd love to rent the chalet again next year. Highly recommended!"

  • perfect weekend getaway

    "Our family of 4 decided to go on a last minute trip to Mendocino for Easter. We enjoyed everything about our stay at Casa Canon. The place is immaculately clean, nicely designed, cozy and comfortable. There is an adjacent unit, but we didn't see or hear anyone there all weekend, so we fully enjoyed the silence. The view is breathtaking. Getting to play on the private beach - one of the most gorgeous ones on the CA coast - was an added bonus. We highly recommend this place and hope to be back soon."

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!

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!
