we had a lovely stay. beautiful views when it isn't foggy. you can hear the traffic a bit when you're out on the porch but it isn't too crazy. some things in the house felt a little outdated, and the furniture could be more comfy, but it's a lovely and spacious home overall, and we were comfortable. I wouldn't recommend this house if you have a mold allergy though. Also the bbq pit wasn't clean. Lemons and blackberries in the backyard was great but poison oak too so be careful. Beautiful sunsets, conveniently located.
Manager response:
We were delighted to host you, Shoshana. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit. The furniture is in great condition and was picked because it is vintage and its style matches our home’s style. There is no poison oak on our property. We do have native blackberries that grow on the fence. These plants do have 3 leaves and we apologize for any confusion. Our local team reviewed the home and no mold was found. Just to be on the safe side extra cleaning was completed. We are sorry that the BBQ pit wasn’t cleaned fully. ur guest service agents are available 24 hours a day and if any issues arise we encourage guests to let us know so that we can assist. We would love to host you again in the future.

We enjoyed the magnificent view from the property, the comfortable and open home, filled with beautiful art and plants and furnishings. The kitchen is fully equipped . The property is in a quiet cul de sac, near the ocean.
We are very pleased with our stay. Thank you!

Spacious ceilings, separate get-together areas (den separated from living room, eat-in kitchen is separate from dining room). Beautiful expansive view of Bay & ocean. Convenient location

Great home layout. Amazing views!!! Decor/finishes are outdated but the house was squeaky clean and well maintained. Would absolutely book again!

This house was such a comfortable place to stay in; lots of rooms, large kitchen, decent view, and very clean. I don't have any complaints; though I do have some nice to haves - lounge seating would be awesome on the deck. Some of the other highlights I appreciated: didn't have to take the sheets off the bed - this seems like a small thing, but I feel when I'm on vacation, I shouldn't have to remove the sheets; that's why we pay a cleaning fee. I also appreciated that they left enough paper products - lately it seems as if house rentals include 1 roll of toilet paper and 1 roll of paper towels. When there are 4 people in the house 1 roll of anything isn't very helpful. This is a very special home with homeowner memories throughout the house - wished it were mine!! Thanks Vacasa for your informational emails and keeping in touch.....

It is such a big and fully stocked house which has everything for our family summer vacation. It is also close to attractions such as redwood parks. We enjoyed our stay.
Jasmine H. Jun 2021
We loved staying at the Humboldt Bay Retreat! It was a lovely and spacious home with an incredible view. It was the perfect place to relax after exploring the nearby national parks. It was also conveniently close to downtown Eureka. We would love to stay there again if we are ever back there.

The deck and view were very nice. Furniture not comfortable at all - from the kitchen chairs to the couches.

This was the most charming house! Great views and a lot of great vintage furniture! I would highly recommend this home!

This house is HUGE. There is room for everyone to find a private corner. Not only is the inside large, but the deck is also very large with multiple access points.

This place is HUGE! Every room was spacious and there was plenty of room for everyone to have a private corner. Not only is the living space large, but the deck is also very spacious. There are several access points to the deck ad we enjoyed sitting in the sun. With everything the house has going for it, maybe management could add a grill. It doesn't need to be fancy but the deck is crying out for it ;-)
It was very clean and had the best equipped kitchen I've ever been in.
Responsiveness could be better. I texted with a couple of minor problems, but one was a burned out light that was at the end of a hallway where light was needed. I called and left a message the next day. Still no response the 3rd day. As we were packing to leave we finally got a call back...with the man telling me where the spare bulbs were kept!

Very large, spacious interior. Full array of dishes, pots, glasses, etc. Nice view of the sunset.

We had a great relaxing family vacation. This was a wonderful home base to explore the region. The back deck on this house is a slice of heaven overlooking a small farm with a herd of cattle & the ocean. And the birds in the area love to fly around the drafts right off the back deck. You could spend hours watching the birds & the cattle.

The furniture in the house is a little worn & could use replacing but it is a great home. Very large & open. Lots of space.

This place was terrific- exceeded expectations! We got there late at night and promptly went to bed. In the morning when we opened the curtains, that view from the expansive decks took our breath away! The house was clean and gorgeous and close to the Redwood National Park- we heartily recommend it to all.

I cant say enough about the views of this house overlooking the bay and farm land, etc... Just breathtaking. Great wooden decks to enjoy it. The house was nice and roomy. Quiet street location at the end of the street. We had a great time staying here and visiting with family living in the area. I would rent this house again. Small ant problem by the back sliding door but not a huge issue. The management company was super helpful with my two phone calls to them, one to book this house and one to call about questions regarding garbage disposal.

Very good location . Well equipped and nicely decorated house
