About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

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 an outdoor foot 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 three other vacation rentals on the Oyster Beach property. Mid-Century Waterfront is next door to Oyster Beach Escape and the other is on the opposite 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 close 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.

Any 30 day booking will be charged double the cleaning fee. If it is not automatically added in your booking, we will add the charge for you. We do this because we come in mid-stay and change your linens and do some light cleaning!

Reviewer Comments:

What a magical place! I am so very happy I chose the waterfront cottage; it was the best location on the property. I was expecting a cute, clean place with an ocean view but I got so much more. Checking in was completely hassle-free with the app, I was greeted with a local beer and some delicious cookies, a sweet welcome sign and fresh water at bedside. After walking up and down the private beach I lit a fire right in front of the house with the complimentary wheelbarrow-full of fire wood. After the kids finished playing on the beach we loaded them into the soaking tub on the porch while we watched the fisherman return with the day's catch. The cottage was clean and had an adorable aesthetic. The photos do not do it justice. The property manage Jesse is quick to respond to any emails and when I had an issue with the TV, he was out ASAP to fix it. I will definitely be booking this place again. In fact, I hesitated to leave such a positive review for fear it would get booked up and I wouldn't be able to stay again. I've already referred several friends :) Oh, and I checked out the "Escape" cottage next door and will probably stay in this unit as well. SUPER cute, clean, and cozy. When I say these places are magical, I truly mean it. I returned home well-rested, a sure sign of success of any vacation.

Reviewer Comments:

Stayed for two nights for our trip to Redwood National Park. It was great to come back to a quite home with private beach. Kids had a blast collecting wood for the camp fire. Bought food and supplies at nearby Safeway for the grill, had dinner at the picnic bench near the camp fire and made S'mores afterwards. A bit too much light at the opposite shore to star gaze, but it was lovely just sitting out by the water and fire. Private beach is a huge plus. Saw a huge jellyfish on our walk. It didn't rain while we stayed there so the unpaved road wasn't really a problem. The house had all the essentials, including beach towels. However, it doesn't have a dishwasher so you will have to do the dishes by hand. Didn't really bother me though. I always wash dishes before use at rental houses anyway. Will totally consider staying there again if we are in the area. Simply wonderful.

Reviewer Comments:

The view of the bay was outstanding with opportunities to watch a variety of birds from the living room as if you were standing on the beach. The beds were comfortable and the design of the building was very nice. The location was secluded and private yet it was close to town. My daughter quite enjoyed the beach activities and we didn't catch several crabs. The property was clean and reasonably well maintained and I would recommend this place again. I would recommend making sure your dog has a flea and tick collar as our dog had six ticks on her in four days with her caller . Also the kitchen could use some more Basic amenities to help with the occasional dinners.

Owner's Response: Thank you thank you! Everyone loves Mid Century Waterfront Home at Oyster Beach! We look forward to your return. Yes, Oyster Beach is rural with lots of grassy and woody areas, so dogs are susceptible to pests. We appreciate the suggestions on the kitchen and with update! So you when you return!
