About Heidi Benzonelli

Heidi is the President of Westside Community Improvement Association, a community activist and owner of Eureka Vacation Rentals. She owns and manages 3 historic homes in Eureka and has a commitment to offering beautiful affordable accommodations to people visiting the Victorian Seaport of Eureka and the surrounding Redwoods.

Why Heidi Benzonelli chose North Coast

I own the Bright and Airy Yellow Cottage about 2 blocks away and work building a community owned Community Center and Free Public Park 3 blocks away. I love and am committed to the vibrant revitalization effort on the Westside and consider the Pink Craftsman an opportunity to save another one of eureka's Historic Beautys. I am so excited to be able to buy it and can not wait to share it with you! The house has all of the original builtin's and wood work and I will eventually convert all of the modern upgrades (Kitchen and bathroom floors) back to period.

What makes this house unique

The pink craftsman has all of the original built in features, is on a quiet street, has a private yard and is a quick walk to Oldtown. The home is located smack dab in the middle of everything a Northcoast Vacation has to offer and is nestled among the Victorian Beauties of the Historic Clark District in Eureka. This house has everything!

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This house more than met our expectations and we will definitely be returning soon. It was a nice short drive straight to the harbor each evening to watch the sunset, see the sea lions playing and pelicans diving for fish. Our days were spent at the beaches and one day in the Trinidad/Patrick's Point area. Don't miss the avenue of the giants! So much to do in this area, can't wait to go back!

Cute home, could use some improvement

  • 3 of 5

We really liked the house and the convenient location. There is plenty of space and it is well equipped. I took a star off for the uncomfortable bed and pillows. We slept on the king bed and it was awful and creaky, every time we moved it woke us up and it was totally uncomfortable as well as the pillows. My mother in law slept on the queen and said it was comfortable. I ended up sleeping on the twin which was better. I took off another star because the floor heater burned my 2 year olds foot badly enough to leave grate marks so not sure if it is safe for families with little ones. The yard is great but the neighborhood cats use it as a litter box so we had to pick it up before we let my son play but we still managed to step in poo a few times.

Not as magical as I'd hoped

  • 3 of 5

I really wanted to be in love with this pink Craftsman home, but the love just didn't flow.

First of all, we had a terribly hard time unlocking the front door--the deadbolt didn't open the way it should, and the quikset lock was keyed backward.

When we walked in, the house smelled terribly musty, which was off-putting. It is also a very dark home, due to the dark wood and low lighting.

Front porch and steps needed paint; it was cracked, faded, and missing in places. The screen in the back door was also ripped and torn.

One of the table lamps in the living room did not work. I tried replacing the bulb, but that wasn't the problem. The other lamps were of very low wattage, impossible to use for reading.

Fortunately the bed linens were not musty-smelling, and the beds were comfortable.

The kitchen was well supplied and we appreciated being able to cook there.

Appreciated having the washer/dryer.

Did not appreciate that once the toilet paper roll on the spindle ran out, there was no more to be found anywhere in the house. We had to make a separate trip to the store to buy more TP. Not acceptable!

The house was not in the middle of lots of other old homes, a very mixed lot.

All in all, it was not the lovely house I had expected from the online description. I would not recommend staying here.

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time! Lovely home. We had a great thanksgiving with a beautiful dining room to enjoy our family time. Would stay here anytime. The only two things that could make it better , one would be a door mat to wipe off your wet feet. And a was to keep the sun out of the bedroom windows in the morning.

This charming 1914 Craftsman Bungalow has all of its original charm. Located in the Historic Clark district, you will be nestled among the greatest Victorian architectural showpieces in California. The home is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Located a very short walk to Oldtown, enjoy dining, a plethora of art galleries, a carriage ride, a bay tour, museums, live theater an award winning brewery and on the First Saturday Arts Alive! with every shop open late serving wine and snacks and featuring Humboldt Counties greatest artists, a must'nt miss!!

The home is located conveniently between the Giant Redwoods at Redwood National Park to the North, Avenue of the Giants to the South and just 7 miles away from Headwaters reserve. A 5 minute drive to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the bay, this home has it all.
