The living room has 2 comfortable leather chairs, a leather couch and a flat screen television with DirectTv. The condo has 6 large widows giving plenty of natural light and views of the waterfront and Old Town. In the kitchen you will find a full selection of cooking pots and pans and basic cooking tools to help you out. There are dishes and glassware for 4 guests, even the martini glasses; of course there is a built in microwave oven and dishwasher. One of the great things about Old Town is that when you walk out the door you have the choice of many restaurants, coffee houses and a couple of local bakeries. During the spring and summer Old Town has its on horse carriage to take in a very unique tour of Old Town. Marty and his horse Cinnamon can be seen out the South window where they pick up passengers, look for them in our pictures below. Vehicle parking is on-street.

Eureka is a city of almost 30,000 located on the Pacific North coast of California. We have an active arts community with a monthly Arts Alive Night on the first Saturday of each month in Old Town, there are also many local art galleries for viewing or purchasing art. Humboldt State University has its own gallery in Old Town on First Street with student and faculty exhibits and out of the area artist shows. There is a wide variety of restaurants to be found in Eureka and we would be happy to give you some ideas of how to choose your meals out. In Henderson Center there is a great local bakery for morning pastries and coffee drinks. Humboldt County has a bounty of outdoor activities to be enjoyed at our local beaches and forest areas.

Eureka is a 4 hour and 45 minute drive north of San Francisco and 120 miles west of Redding. Whether you want to escape the urban population of the Bay Area or the heat of Redding, Eureka is a great choice.

About Joe Vellutini

Over the last 4 years we have converted 4 of our long term rentals in Eureka to vacation rentals. We have lived in Eureka all our lives and enjoy sharing our community with others. We manage our own vacation rental so you can be assured that you will be interacting with the owner of the property instead of a third party property manager. Thank you for looking at our property for you possible stay in Eureka. Have a safe trip.

Joe Vellutini purchased this condo in 1964

Why Joe Vellutini chose Eureka

My father grew up in what is now known as the Old Town area of Eureka in the 1930’s. As a local paperboy he admired this building which was a hardware store at the time. The building was purchased in 1964 by my family. We were one of the first people to renovate our Old Town building in the early 1970’s prior to Eureka participating in redevelopment. Old Town is now one of the jewels of Eureka

What makes this condo unique

The vacation rental is located half a block from the Waterfront. The view to the North is of the Waterfront, the view to the South is the Old Town Gazebo. Located on the second floor with many windows the vacation rental is a great place to take in the view or do some people watching. Walk out the front door and there are many restaurants and shopping establishments to choose from.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time staying here and it’s been just as clean, comfortable, and relaxing as the first time. It actually felt like home. This is a great place!

Great apartment, with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay in old town Eureka. Views of the harbor and the town square just below us. The apartment was nicely furnished, with a very comfortable King bed. Joe was a wonderful host and took extra time for us. Everything in old town Eureka is within walking distance, including the Carson mansion. Would highly recommend staying here.

nice property, excellent location

  • 4 of 5

I spent 4 weeks in this apartment and had a very nice stay. Furnishings were fine, and kitchen had everything I needed to prepare meals. This was an excellent location right in the heart of the Old Town District, so easy to explore places on foot. I enjoyed sitting by the open window (in August!) to read and look out on the plaza in front of the building. I did hear some street noise, as this is a popular spot for pedestrians with shops, galleries, restaurants, etc., but I found that to be part of the appeal of the apartment.

Property manager Joe works right around the corner and was easy to reach if I needed anything or had a question. I hope to stay in this place again. I loved the cool weather, away from the mid-Atlantic heat and humidity. I'd never been to Eureka before, and it was everything I hoped for and then some.

Our home for a week

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a place in Northern California, the two of us were happy and satisfied as we settled in here. Some days we left to explore the redwoods, coasts, towns, and shops. Other days we stayed nearby to relax, enjoying local restaurants, galleries, and museums, taking a boat trip, shopping the Tuesday market, and going to the theater. Aways the condo was a comfortable and well equipped home base. The Old Town location is the best area to stay in Eureka. You can choose this with confidence in what you are getting."

Loved it !!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this rental if you will be staying in the area! In the center of Historic Old Town, this apartment is in walking distance from all kinds of shopping and some very nice restaurants, especially if you love oysters. If it's a view you seek this place has it. The boardwalk is just a hop skip and a jump away. If it's adventure you seek there are a ton of places not far away that you can drive to and take in the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and the Redwoods of Norcal.

Most importantly the apartment is pet friendly, very clean, well kept, private, secure, spacious, and well equipped with everything I needed for my extended stay.

The owner, Joe, was absolutely wonderful! Not only was he quick to get back to me when I had some questions but he was polite and friendly on top of it.
