Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Upstairs Add-On, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Pebble Beach View Vacation Rental & Guest House - This older oceanfront beach house (2 BR/2 BA) has been expanded in size from the original house to maximize the beautiful ocean views from living room, dining and master bedroom areas. Spacious master bedroom has plenty of closets, a tiled shower, double sinks and dressing area. 2nd bedroom has a queen bed & an older twin sofa sleeper (sofa sleeper is best for kids rather than adults). Living room has a single sized futon & some couches (couch or sofa bed sleeping is probably more comfortable for kids, rather than adults). Stairs to the beach are right out the front door! At some times of the year, there may be availability of a separate second story (above the garage) studio/loft available to add on, also, for around half the cost of the main house (that adds another bedroom, kitchenette, and bath, and 2nd story ocean view deck, making it 3 BR/3 BA), but this is NOT currently available for the next few months (already in use). This house has an amazing view! Wireless internet conncetion and DISH Network TV!

Located on South Pebble Beach Drive (the most breathtaking drive on the North Coast!) near to Redwood National Park, Battery Point Lighthouse, Crescent City Harbor, Ocean World, Trees of Mystery (Klamath), the Smith and Klamath Rivers, Lake Earl Wildlife Area, Del Norte County Airport, Sutter Coast Hospital, Pelican Bay State Prison, and it's only 20 miles up Coast Highway 101 to the Oregon border and Brookings. We encourage Exchange Stays with other Vacation Rental Owners through the iTravex website online. (Ours is #9977)

Pebble Beach offers the Pacific's most spectacular sunsets, plus a view of distant Point St. George Lighthouse out at sea. We think it's the most beautiful spot on Earth!-- Listen to sea lions and sea birds, plus take advantage of the free stress-reducing therapy offered by the sight and sound of the ocean waves!-- We've had many satisfied guests.

About Lori

This is our only rental place--it's the house we first bought and that we used to live in before our big family 'outgrew' it (before it was expanded in a remodel), but it's in too nice of a spot not to hold onto it! We're in love with the location!

Lori purchased this house in 1988

Why Lori chose Crescent City North

Like living in a national park setting every day!

What makes this house unique

This is an older home, but with a 'million-dollar view'!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Location! We had a family reunion here & it was wonderful. Every sunset was magical. The kids went crabbing at low tide. Major change of pace from Chicago! Thanks--

Great Location - House Needs Updating

  • 2 of 5

The location is wonderful! The house needs some major TLC! Couches need to be replaced. Kitchen is lacking in cooking and eating utensils,, and the stove and oven need to be cleaned!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you found some things lacking. Two of the 4 couches have been newly acquired, so I'm assuming you mean the other two, which we will replace as we are able and find suitable replacements. As far as the eating and cooking utensils, there are 2 utensils drawers (did you see them both?) with multiple sets of eating utensils and various cooking utensils in each of the drawers, plus some other cooking utensils in the ceramic pitcher by the stove, so it's hard for me to see how you could not find enough utensils? Were there some specific cooking or eating utensils that are unique that we didn't have? If so, let us know which ones, because we had thought we had lots of utensils on site! Perhaps you brought many more people than mentioned in the reservation or something, because for the 3 adults and 3 children you reserved for, there should have been numerous utensils to use (plus an automatic dishwasher is on site as well, if guests were ever to run out). Also, we noticed in the guest book at the rental that someone in your group wrote that they felt the house was awesome and they "can't wait to return"! So at least one of the people in your group seems to have enjoyed the place enough to want to come back. Thanks.

Great Potential, But......

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful setting in a town with close proximity to incredible redwood groves. The ocean is literally just across the street and the large living room and master bedroom windows afford a wonderful sunset view, only partially obstructed by a scatter of trees.

This is a spacious house in a town with a reasonable array of restaurants and shopping nearby. The neighborhood seemed OK. The street could be a bit busy but it was quiet overall. Great location, awesome views and beach access. That's the good.

I am a frequent traveller who rents condos, homes, guest houses etc. often. In my opinion, this rental needs a few things addressed in order to more of an ideal vacation destination. In addition to being a bit cluttered with pianos and a rather large unusable tube television among other things, the living room furniture is in serious need of replacement. To be blunt, it is shot.

Considering the living room with it's magnificent view is the big appeal of this property, it is unfortunate the sofa setting makes the room nearly unusable. Certainly unenjoyable. My suggestion, new living room furniture is essential in making this property desirable for return visits.

The owner is seemingly a very nice person but when asked to write a review I would be doing her a disservice if I were not honest. This house has so much more potential for a minimal investment: Declutter, new living room furniture, sheets and bedding which match and before I forget, a hot water heater with a capacity to keep up with two showers running at once.

With a few upgrades, this property could be a dream destination. Warmest regards to the owner, I wish her success with this property as a vacation rental in a great setting.

Owner's Response: It's too bad your visit wasn't just a little bit later because now we have gotten a new table and 8 lovely chairs for the living room and a long-awaited visit from the DISH network serviceman has connected the large TV in the master bedroom, that you were referencing, up to satellite television now. We are trying to make improvements as we are able, so that it enhances our guests' visits. Perhaps you can return sometime in the future and find some of the things you mentioned are now better for you. Glad you enjoyed the location and spaciousness of the house where we used to live, but now have available for others to share in this picturesque spot.

The vacation home rental was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The vacation home was clean, comfortable, roomy and had a fabulous view. All the comforts of home away from home. We will surely rent this home again! We also rented the unit above the garage which was nice for my son and his little family.

Amazing views! Steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Lori's home for four quiet and peaceful nights with great luck having had amazing weather. We had to arrive after dark and Lori had thankfully given us very thorough instructions on how to access the apartment upstairs. Perfect size for us with a spacious room, small kitchenette that had everything we needed to make tea and simple meals, ample hot water for showers. The beds were very comfortable- sheets looked and felt new as well fresh new towels -all made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. The view especially is not to be beat and the home is right across the steps to the beach- so easy to take a stroll in the morning while sipping our tea. A quick jaunt east to Jedediah Smith Park and we were hiking deep through the old growth redwoods- magnificent! We hope to be back in the near future. Thank you , Lori for sharing your lovely, cozy home.

Charming house with lots of wiggle room for families and a spectacular view

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful house for families and sleep-overs! Although there are only 2 bedrooms there are lots of extra beds to tuck away and sleep. The detached studio can be added if people in your party need extra privacy. The location is great with a beach entrance across the street from the house and a playground a quick drive away. The views from the house are amazing. Lori was super kind and accommodating. If you are a Foodie and plan on making special meals in the house I recommend bringing a box of cookware; utensils; and dishes. The kitchen is very sparingly appointed. We will stay again!

Apartment only not the house

  • 1 of 5

What a dump! I would give it no stars but that's not an option. The owner needs to spend some money and buy a new bed, furniture, sheets, blankets, towels, etc as the list is way to long. The bed was so old and hard, the blankets had holes in them and the towels look like ones you would use on your dog. We we first arrived we walked through the garage to the back porch area only to be met with the smell of sewer. I texted the owner about it but all she could say was that someone was on the way. Nobody ever came to fix it while we were there and the smell was bad! The only saving grace was that you couldn't smell it in the apartment. The only positive of this place was the view of the ocean.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you did not enjoy our ocean view loft even at its very reasonable low price for such a great view right on the ocean. Our contractor was scheduled to come the day you were there to check on any unusual odor reported and I'm sorry if he did not arrive while you were there. We have gone through our towels to see if some are too worn and brought in new sheets, blankets, towels, etc. so hopefully no others would feel as you do.
