This is a smoke-free, spacious home, sitting at the corner of Freeman and Pacific Avenue, one block from the ocean.
Walk out either Freeman or Pacific Avenue, and you come to a small picnic area that straddles some of the most spectacular scenery on the Pacific Coast. To the south runs a rugged, rocky ocean front with a picturesque view of the lighthouse.
To the north stretches a beautiful sandy beach, sheltered from the waves by sea stacks and a small rock island that harbors a large population of birds and a colony of sea lions.
To the north, and only minutes away by car, is Point Saint George, which is much more exposed and offers a spectacular place to hike during major storms. Crescent City Bay, at the southern edge of town, tends to be relatively protected because of its U-shaped coastline.
Just outside the southern city line is the border of Redwoods National Park. The coastal redwoods here are among the most grand and spectacular of their kind and form cathedral-like hiking areas.
On the west side of highway 101 the steep slopes descend all the way to rocky beaches and small coves at the Pacific Ocean. On the east side, moss-covered forests often provide beautiful views of rays of sunlight penetrating a hazy atmosphere.
Other activities include ocean kayaking, canoeing the Smith and Klamath rivers, or any of the other rivers in the area. You may also partake in bird watching, deep sea fishing, bicycling, etc.
This corner of California is an outdoors paradise, and yet is still relatively quiet and unspoiled.
Thank you for the great place to stay while getting away for awhile. We enjoyed the location as we went for a walk every day down to the ocean and drove all over to see the redwoods and surrounding areas. We played more family games then we have for the past year. Was a great time and really enjoyed it.
This house was great for my family of 5 and my sisters family of 6. Plenty of space and enough beds with the 2 air mattresses, although one did have a hole in it. Not a problem with small children. The kitchen is very large with plenty of prep space and cupboards for groceries. Living area is very nice. Bedrooms are perfect and 2 baths were fine if you did some bathing at night. Short walk to the beach and drive to the trees made this vacation a treat. Everything you need but bring your own bath and laundry soaps. Rental process was very easy. We definitely would stay again!
Very clean! Spacious and comfortable! We had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday in this well stocked home. The kitchen was well-stocked with pots and pans and utensils. Bring your own soap, shampoo and laundry detergent! Close to beach ( walking distance) in quiet neighborhood. Hopefully will return soon!
We enjoyed our stay at the house. It was very convinient location from redwood forest & beach accessibility. We were 10 people including 4 kids, would have loved extra bathrrom, but overall it was very enjoyable stay. Remember to bring your soaps for shower & laundry, house do not have them.
Lots of room. Nice and clean.
OK, so I broke the one year rule. At the time of our stay, I didn't realize we could leave a review. Our family stayed in this home for 4 nights, I think, over the July 4th holiday of 2006. The home was clean and well cared for and we loved the easy, across-the-street access to the beach. We had everything we needed. Just looking at the pictures again brought back fun memories of staying in this home. We are planning another family trip in 2013, again over the 4th of July, and would absolutely consider staying in this home again. Thanks for great memories and hopefully, we'll make more! OH! Love the back yard too!
