MID CENTURY BEACH HOUSE @ OYSTER BEACH

Eureka House Rental Photos and Description

Mid Century Beach House @ Oyster Beach is a New 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Beach house on 14 beautiful, private acres on the Samoa Peninsula which is just across the bay from Eureka and about a ten minute drive to Arcata & Eureka.

Mid-Century Waterfront @ Oyster Beach

Steps from the beach with 180 degree views, our Mid-Century Waterfront home is a cozy getaway in a rustic, natural setting. The home is nestled on the dunes, so you can watch the sea birds and seals play in the waves while you sip your morning coffee.

The home was renovated this year and has all the modern comforts while retaining the simplicity and clean lines of the 1940s and 50s and using reclaimed, natural materials . Highlights include a full kitchen with antique stove, herringbone redwood walls, a subway-tiled shower, period and reproduction furnishings, and a rustic soaking tub on the deck. The home is located on Oyster Beach, a 14-acre historic homestead outside of Eureka, CA. It 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 Mid-Century Waterfront sleeps 6. There are two queen-sized beds in the bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the living room. Perfect for a family vacation! There are two other vacation rentals on the Oyster Beach property, one adjacent to the Mid-Century Waterfront and the other on the far 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.

The Mid-Century Waterfront 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 in the area.

Guest Access

The code to the gate, lock box for front door key, and alarm will all be emailed to you prior to arrival.

Interaction with Guests

As much as you would like. We can leave you completely to yourselves or meet up with you if you would like

The Neighborhood

Located on 14 private acres with a few other cabins - mostly beautiful trees, dunes, beach, and bay. Oyster Beach's lands are protected against further development, so native plants are abundant.

Getting around

Ocean beaches are within walking distance, as is the Samoa Dunes Recreation area. The bayside beach is right out your front door! Town is a short drive or long bike ride away. Would need a car but bike riding would be a great way to get around as well, especially to the beaches.

Other Things to Note

If your idea of a beach vacation includes manicured golf courses and drink service on the sand, Oyster Beach is not for you. But if you fantasize about a simple getaway in a beautifully lush, wild and natural place, please be our guest.

Reviewer Comments:
We had the opportunity to stay at this quaint property for 3 days over the Fourth of July holiday. We loved the fact that the house was remote from the city of Eureka and the fact we almost had the beach to ourselves! Yes there are 2 other properties on site, but we barely saw the other residents. The fact we could also have our dog in this nice of a place was remarkable. The décor was really complimentary to the mid century theme and fit the style of the property. They also offered nice touches like fresh flowers and a bottle of wine upon our arrival which was very generous.

The only few complaints we had were:

It was challenging to find a place to eat comfortably. There is a coffee table in the main sitting area, but the house is too small for a formal dining area. It might have been helpful to have a collapsible table that could be put away or even an outside table to eat on would have been more accommodating.

We also had just come from a 2 week backpacking trip and were looking forward to catching up on a few emails and perhaps watching the World Cup, but there was no WIFI. I understand that the idea of coming to this type of property is to detach from the rest of the world and to relax, but unfortunately we are probably one of the few guests that had already came from an area where we were disconnected from society for a very long time.
It also would have been nice to have the WIFI to simply look for restaurants in the area, etc.

Also note that there are really nice TV's located in each of the bedrooms, but there is no cable or dvd player, so not sure what you could actually watch except for news.

All in all it was a very good experience, but could have been better if there were just a few more amenities that the owners may not want to introduce simply to keep the charm of being remote.

Manager responded on 7/9/2014:
One of the charms of Mid Century is the remoteness and the get away from it all experience without WIFI or cable TV. Many guests are appreciative of this feature and like to sit around the fire pit and watch wildlife on the bay, Nature's TV! I understand you wanted to be reconnected coming in from backpacking and nonetheless glad you enjoyed the property.

Reviewer Comments:
Woodwork, vibrant decorative details throughout and walls of windows made this cabin an exceptional rental, but being footsteps from the waterfront made it tough to stay inside. During our weekend stay, we watched birds from the private deck while crabbing and fishing boats cruised by. The outdoor tub is amazing! Fresh air and chirping frogs at night added to comfortable accommodations, making for a truly wonderful stay.

Thanks for coming and enjoying the property. We love it when guests appreciate their surroundings and the experiences that Mid Century and Oyster Beach Escape can offer to everyone! Please come again to Mid Century with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals!

Reviewer Comments:
We really enjoyed the Mid Century Beach House @ Oyster Beach. It was beautiful watching all of the birds - egrets, pelicans, cormorants, and great blue herons over the bay. The house was very comfortable and inviting. We loved the Wedgewood stove - reminded me of my grandma's stove! We will definitely stay here again the next time we come to No. CA coast.

Manager responded on 7/3/2014:
Mid Century is a real unique space! The owners have great sense of style and can find similar lines in all 4 of their properties! Oyster Beach Escape and Oyster Loft, both the same stretch of Humboldt Bay coastline and also in Old Town Eureka, and The Coatshop. And the wildlife is fantastic! Thanks for noticing!
