Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Wake up to the sound of waves on a secluded beach! Our cabin is located on Oyster Beach, a 14-acre historic homestead outside of Eureka, CA. The cabin was once the caretaker's cottage for the homestead, and is located on the edge of the property, surrounded by wetlands, eucalyptus groves, and a 1/4 mile of white sand beach. The location feels remote, but downtown Arcata and Eureka are a 10 minute drive or even a long bike ride away.

The cabin itself is a cozy 800-sq ft with water views from every room. It was built in the 1940s but renovated in 2014 using reclaimed materials and modern touches. Highlights include a clawfoot tub on the enclosed porch so you can soak with a view of the bay, a full kitchen, gas burning fireplace, vintage furnishings, beachfront firepit, washer/dryer, and crab pots for guests' use (make sure to grab bait from town). {The recreational fishery for Dungeness crab is open from November through July. The daily bag limit is 10 crab, and the minimum size limit is 5¾ inches.}

Oyster Beach Escape is a one bedroom Cabin that features a king-sized bed and full size pull-out couch in the bedroom. The cabin also has a loft that's perfect for older kids with a full size mattress (only accessible by ladder, so best suited for older kids or laid-back adults).

There are three other vacation rentals on the Oyster Beach property. Oyster Beach Escape is next door to Mid-Century Waterfront and the other is on the opposite end of the property. The homes can be rented together to accommodate larger groups or special events. Attention has been paid to the design of each unit to maximize guest privacy.

Our cabin is next to the Samoa Dunes Recreation Area and the North Jetty, one of the best surf breaks in the area. There are abundant hiking, fishing, beachcombing, ATV, and horseback riding opportunities.

Any 30 day booking will be charged double the cleaning fee. If it is not automatically added in your booking, we will add the charge for you. We do this because we come in mid-stay and change your linens and do some light cleaning!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Truly magical experience at this Samoa cabin. Lovely details inside, and thoughtfully furnished with everything you need to feel instantly at home and at ease. Grand, foggy eucalyptus views from every window. Then the sun comes out and you'll see why this is a soothing, yet still dynamic, environment to enjoy. Walking along the shore (right out the front door!), endless views, nighttime fires, and afternoon baths. Perfection. There is another house next door that we might not have totally known from the description was going to be there, but the owners have oriented it so as to maximize privacy and comfort. Comfy bed, roomy shower and accessible laundry great for those who will be traveling around the region for day hikes and need to spruce up before dinner. Overall, a great value and wonderful place to get lost.

We stayed here on our way to Oregon for two days..... While the location was perfect, the grounds could use some TLC It's a great piece of land but could be soooo much better . And a mosquito warning would have helped lol ... my boxer and myself were bitten quite a few times..... all in all it was clean and great for our two different GS who got to run up and down the private beach.

Rustic elegance in a wooded hideaway on a beach - perfect if you want to get away from it all. This cabin is full of delightful touches of whimsy - a clawfoot tub in the living room; apothecary bottles of gin and whiskey; excellent reading; oil drums as sink stands. It also offers delightful comfort - piles of towels, fresh sheets (although pillows were a bit lumpy), welcome beer and coffee, plump couches and your own private beach. We'd stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

One of the best stays I've had in a while. Only problem was the mosquitos but understandable considering the time of year and location. Bedroom screen was bent so couldn't open all the the windows but that's obviously minor. The screen on the front was torn and didn't fit well so couldn't leave the door open like we wanted. A screen on the bathroom door would be nice as well. Have been in hospitality and property management for years. I am impressed. We will be back.
