This beautiful area was the inspiration for my artist/sculptor husband. It also was the perfect place to rear our 3 children.
My days almost always begin with a walk on our 2+ miles of uncrowded beach.
Now that our children are grown I have time to pursue my passion, going to gem shows and creating jewelry from my unique finds.
This home is set back from the highway and located on 3 acres surrounded by pasture land. Follow the paved driveway around to the back of the house and you will find a 1 car garage, a ramp to the back door for easy access and plenty of parking for your cars, boat or RV.
You will also find a secluded yard with a BBQ and comfortable chairs for relaxing.
Watch for deer, herds of elk and covies of quail. You can also enjoy a variety of colorful birds that come to the feeders. (Bird food provided.)
In late August the blackberry vines are hanging with juicy berries. They make delicious cobblers. Bring jars if you like to make jam.
Up there with our top 10 trips. The house was perfect for our two families. Plenty of space and that upstairs living room is the best I have ever experienced for the craziness that a bunch of kids can bring - complete with a fabulous fireplace and good views. It was hard to get the kids out of the house...but when we did the beach was just a 5 minute walk.
We were all very comfortable and had every thing that we expected from a vacation rental.
We were greeted by the owner who was putting fresh flowers in vases in the house. The fireplaces gave us the camping atmosphere so the young children could enjoy making smores. The views from the upstairs living room and the kitchen window were very nice.
We were within walking distance of the beach and had the joy of seeing whales and sea lions. The tide pools had lots of ocean life to observe and touch. It was also great fun to fly kites. Even though we did not see elk from the house this time we could hear them bugling at night. What a treat!
This place surpassed our expectations. It was absolutely perfect for our family. We have a 18 month old and everything was fun, safe and clean. Super short walk to the beautiful beachfront county park, so easy and beautiful. The house was clean and couldn't be more comfortable. The owner pays attention to every detail and even left us flowers and muffins.
This place gives you way more than your money's worth! Impressed.
Just an amazing vacation, way better than expected! We will be back!
I was a bit nervous on booking this house but the reviews were great. The house lived up to the reviews. It was spacious enough for the 7 people in our party. The great room was definitely our favorite room. The beach is just a short walk across the highway. Most nights we had this beach to ourselves. The house was only about 20 minutes from the Redwoods. I would definately stay at this house again. Thank you Jean for opening up your home.
Where do I start to say how much fun we had at your very comfortable home. We had 11 people and 1 dog and could not have been more pleased with our decision to stay there. First of all we had plenty of room. The adults used three of the four rooms and the kids all stayed in the great room up stairs. It was an easy walk to the beach across the road and down a great nature trail. We went down there every evening to play and to shoot off some fireworks early. We also enjoyed site seeing in Cresent City, Smith River, the beautiful redwoods and Brookings Oregon. Brookings was only about 7 miles up the coast so it was fun to be able to see some of Oregon. We even did some fishing on the ?Smith River, it was beautiful. The house was so well furnished and equipped that we really didnt need to use the extra items we brought. We were able to cook or BBQ great meals everyday. It is so peaceful in the back of the house, we spent time just visiting and having meals outside. We know were we will be staying on our next visit to this area, even the kids had a great time and want to go back. Thank you for your hospitality and for making our vacation so comfortable.
We used this house rental for a central location family gathering weekend of fun! The location was perfect, walking distance to the beach and only a few minutes from crescent city to the south or brookings to the north. The owner was extremely nice and friendly. The house is a bit older as were the appliances and furniture, but everything worked well and it was much, much better than staying at a hotel, it felt like home! I plan on staying there again and have already recommended it to others!
