Ocean front location; close to town and state parks. Comfortable. It's on a busy street, but as long as you're out back it doesn't bother you. The house is 70's era. Needs all new flooring and appliances. The cable TV and radio weren't hooked up. But we weren't there to watch TV. Didn't try the wifi. The back deck is rickity--needs to be replaced or repaired. The landscaping is mature, but in need of trimming. We enjoyed our stay, but don't think we'd come back until the updates are made.

Couldn’t ask for more. Amazing views from most rooms and everything you need to feel at home.

Very spacious and comfortable. Incredible views from the living room and enclosed porch... Plenty of furniture to accommodate everyone. I would definitely return.
Having the hot tub in the master bath room was awkward.

What a Fantastic Stay at the Whales Playground vacation rental house in Crescent City! This house totally exceeded my expectations. The house is located on a bluff directly over the Pacific Ocean, and my favorite room in the house was the glass enclosed viewing room that extends the entire width of the house. There are cozy chairs and a dining area in the viewing room, and the Pacific Ocean is only a few yards away- spectacular views in a warm & comfortable setting. We were there in January, during a winter storm, and we were snug as a bug while the seas raged outside- magical!
The rest of the house is delightful. The large living room and well-equipped kitchen made the daily activities easy. The master bedroom has an enormous window directly facing the ocean, and again, the view & ambiance is over the top- as a bonus, there’s an indoor hot tub adjoining the master.
This is a great location for whale watching- they are right out in front of the house! We had a great time beach combing, gunkholing in the tidepools, & checking out the historic lighthouse; still in operation and a must see! I can’t wait to book another stay.

Great view of rocky beach and ocean. Decor was combo of old 70's fashion and flee market antiques, yet funky. Big problem was termites. Saw a few the first day, hundreds the next day.
Manager response:
We are glad to hear you enjoyed the beautiful views at this home Aleza! The owner has since removed the molding and the termites have been exterminated. We hope to host you again soon!
