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 absolutely loved our time at Oyster Beach Escape. Loved the privacy, the quiet, the amazing scenery, and the fact that the kids could play on the beach just steps from the house. It was well appointed and so comfortable. The loft is small, but our two kids (10 and 11) loved it and were perfectly happy. The tub with the view made for a relaxing end to every day there. We're already excited to plan our next stay!

Booked this house for 4 days for my family...myself, husband, 5 year old and 15 year old. It was perfect! We felt like we were out in the middle of no where but in reality downtown was a 10 min drive. We took walks on the beach, drove in town to eat and walk around, drove up to the National Redwood forest and hiked/went to the beach. It was perfect. Great location, all the houses on the property are super cute and a very friendly property management company. We will be staying here again in the future.

The Escape is a lovely, rustic cabin only 10 minutes from Eureka. Lots of thoughtful touches made it a fun place to stay....local products showcased with samples(hand-made soap, coffee, cookies, beer), very comfortable bed, good quality linens, nice set of stainless pots and pans for cooking, unbelievably beautiful location amid the trees, with the front yard on Humboldt Bay and a quiet beach. It felt private even with a close neighboring rental cabin. It was a great week!

I expected more for the money. I was a very nice get away for our anniversary. The wifi service should not be part of the amenities.

Reviewer Comments:

Absolutely perfect relaxing weekend in a wonderful setting. Decor is a nice mix of modern and antique with a cool funky "at the coast" feel. We had some big ideas of things we would do for the weekend but ultimately, the place was so nice, we mostly did nothing but walk on the beach, stare out the window and read a book. Very relaxing. House (more like a shack but in a good way) is immaculately clean and everything works with one glaring exception, the TV. No satellite no antennae for local channels and a roku with Internet that is to slow to use watch. Not sure what the point of it is? At any rate this is such a wonderful location that it's kinda nice not to have a working tv anyway.
