This is a wonderful home with plenty of room for the entire family. We had a family reunion here and everyone had a great time. The outdoor kitchen really makes the space feel even larger.
Marina S. Sep 2022
Comfortable bedrooms, playroom, large kitchen, beautiful property.
James H. Aug 2022
The house was large and took care of three couples and one single as we motorcycled through the Redwoods. Would be great for families as well.
joan b. Jul 2022
Based on the grandchildren alone (ages 2 and 5) I must give the Estate 5 stars. They were enthralled with the kid-size video game console. The tennis/basketball court was great for their bikes and the adults had some exciting BB games too. In fact, the awesome property manager, Joanne, even bought a new basketball for us when we couldn’t find on the property. It was great to have so many bathrooms and spacious bedrooms for everyone.
The kitchen was well stocked with all you need to make meals and keep it clean too. We probably didn’t get around as much as we could’ve because we were all having so much fun at the house! Also, thanks, Vacasa for keeping in touch so well in every step of the process.
Christopher H. Jun 2022
The house and amenities were fabulous! We were a party of two families and there was enough space for all of so we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The tennis court and game room were huge hits. The deck and patio kitchen area are great places to hang out for breakfast or dinner (or any time really). We made several day trips away from the house to local beaches, the redwoods and other sites and it was always great knowing you were coming back to a cozy home. 10/10 would recommend and would definitely stay there again. One small issue was our fridge broke the first day, but the Vacasa team was quick to work out a solution so we weren't totally stranded...kudos to them.
Heather G. Jun 2022
This home was perfect for our family vacation. We chose this home because it has as nearly as many bathrooms as bedrooms. One of the "bathrooms" downstairs is only a restroom. The pictures on webpage are very accurate for the most part. If you're going for the ocean view, don't expect much. Basically can only see ocean on clear day from the upstairs bathroom window.

The outdoor area is great. Loved the tennis court! The stairs are uniquely situated making it seem mystical. Outdoor kitchen is nice.

Of course every place is not perfect and if you plan to do a lot of cooking like we did then you may wish to take kitchen towels and washcloths. Otherwise the kitchen is well supplied with cookware and dishes.

We had an issue with the freezer not working well. When we contacted Vacasa they responded almost immediately. Very friendly customer service. The house was very clean and there isn't a long list of chores to do at checkout. Definitely hope to come back sometime.

Samantha W. Jun 2022
There is enough room for everyone to
Have space at this rental. It was clean, organized, and local management was responsive when I needed a coffee grinder. Thank you for a fabulous weekend with my family! We hadn’t seen each other in a while!
Patrick S. Jun 2022
Great house for a family. Tons of space and a beautiful yard. The neighborhood was very nice. Vacasa did a wonderful job of providing timely and helpful communication/instructions. We really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend this property.
Elizabeth H. May 2022
I would stay here again!! My toddler loved all the whole house! They had great stuff for kids, the yard and tennis court were her favorite. The outdoor kitchen was great, we wish we could of ate outside but it was cold.

I only had two issues and they were minor, one I wish they had a smart tv or Netflix. The satellite TV was dated, it was hard to navigate, but honestly we only had time for a movie, we were to busy exploring the beautiful area.
Then I’m sure this is vacasa who supplies the toilet paper but 1-ply?? I know that seems like a strange thing to complain about but when your staying at a nice place you’d expect better quality items. Like I said it won’t effect the rating just something I noticed.
Jeanne H. May 2022
This home has plenty of space!! Bathrooms, bedrooms and areas for people to hang out. Loved the huge yard and ability to all watch tv or find an area to call our own.
Patricia M. Jan 2022
with great grounds. Centrally located.
Diane S. Aug 2021
Plenty of space for kids and adults to enjoy. The tennis and basketball court was a big hit. Proximity to beach and other attractions was convenient too.
Carina W. Jul 2021
We had 4 adults and 2 children staying in the house and 2 adults and dog visiting us during the day. Everyone was very comfortable - lots of space and room to relax. The master bedroom on the ground floor was nice for one of the adults that can't do stairs very well. The kids loved the tennis court, basketball hoop, large yard and game room. We walked in the neighborhood and it was very peaceful, quiet and safe. The kitchen was fully stocked, the beds were comfortable, the house was clean - we were very happy and would love to stay again. Thank you!
Christopher T. Jun 2021
Great house for two or three families to share with plenty of room. We loved all of the outdoor space including the deck, tennis court, and gazebo. Would definitely stay here again.
Cassandra S. Jun 2021
This home immediately brings a sense of calm and comfort upon entering. The beds were extremely comfortable with a variety of options depending on your group (memory foam versus plush). Crystal clean home with nice touches throughout like Meyers cleaning soaps, tennis rackets, basketballs and additional items to keep the kids busy.

We LOVED the little dog ramp to a small fenced area for our fur baby.

The decor is true to the home: solid wood floors, wallpaper one can appreciate from a 90’s home, just well done :)

We all slept like a baby! The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and a short walk from an ocean view on the hill it resides on.

Many local amenities: the Six Rivers Brewery is a few blocks away with great food and ocean views, clam beach is gorgeous watching the horses, and 2 grocery stores are within a mile.

We’d rent again in the future. Beautiful, comfortable, and safe. Thank you!!
Jeanne H. May 2021
This house has plenty of room for large families and groups. In addition to the space inside the home there is plenty of space outside with a deck, cooking area, tennis court and basketball hoop (just a note - we found the tennis balls in the shrubs next to the tennis court). The location is peaceful and quiet. People were able to use the kitchen, bathrooms, and televisions without disturbing others in the home. We will be back!
David S. May 2021
Spacious home and grounds. Landscaping and plants were delightful.
Frank B. Apr 2021
Spacious. Comfortable. 4 bedrooms and 4 bathroom bathroom. Full patio kitchen. Full size tennis court. Basketball court. Game room. Nice entertainment center.
Caldonia N. Jan 2021
Great home with a warm ambiance and wonderful yard. The tennis court was wonderful and the outdoor grilling space was super fun for our small group.
Pam U. Dec 2020
Everything from arrival to departure was great and easy. Our family of five would definitely come back. You can play tennis, basketball, listen to the ocean, and occasionally watch deer walk down the road - all without leave the premises.
Rodney H. Dec 2020
The amount of space was perfect for our family and the outdoor cooking area was really nice
Maria V. Sep 2020
Quiet and enough room to relax
Glenda B. Jul 2020
We love this home. It’s perfect for 4 adult couples. Plenty of room and a great neighborhood
Shawna C. Jul 2020
This was an incredibly spacious home for our group of 10. No squabbling over who gets the good room because they were all good rooms with their own features. Plenty of parking and room for spreading out. The outside kitchen was an awesome feature too! Tennis court or basketball court, your choice! All in super close proximity to the ocean or town. Walking distance to/from Six Rivers Brewery. We will definitely be back!
Karen G. Feb 2020
My cousins and I are all in our 60's and once a year we get together along with our husbands to hang out for a few days. We stayed at Vista house this week and we had an amazing time! The house was warm and welcoming and very conducive to visiting and playing games. We went to the beach everyday to walk and beach comb. Not far from Samoa, we had to go to the Samoa Cookhouse for at least one meal! The outdoor space is amazing! Everyone felt comfortable with the sleeping arrangements. Good night's sleep for all. Hosts, Vacasa, were very responsive and friendly. I'd recommend this home to anyone with a group (9 in ours) .
Kary K. Feb 2020
We enjoyed our family reunion time in this house. There was enough space to for all our family members to enjoy what this property had to offer.
Wendy K. Feb 2020
House worked out wonderful for us. We were in the area for a wedding and this house is nicely located. Would recommend for sure!!
Juliet R. Jan 2020
Home was spacious and beds were comfortable. The neighborhood is very nice and walkable. Six Rivers Brewery is very close- fun place with yummy food. Hammond trail was an enjoyable walk. Quick drive to Humboldt State. Also about 10 miles to Trinidad which is worth a visit. We enjoyed the Trinidad Head hike very much. The house had plenty of towels and blankets, hot water, large washer and dryer. It is dated in terms of decor, the layout is funky, and a few things need fixing- kitchen sink faucet needs replacing, and outdoor grills do no work.
Sarah S. Jan 2020
Family friendly house, clean, spacious and well stocked. Some free coffee for the Keurig and drop maker is provided which makes it easier if you arrive late and need something to get you going in the morning. Electronic checkin and checkout is very smooth and easy.
. Nov 2019
The home was fully furnished for a great family holiday.
. Nov 2019
Nice, comfortable and large place. Good amenities and the kitchen was well-stocked. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

The only issue is with the communication - when asking for anything, the contact through the VRBO system says that the owner is the only person who can answer it. For example when we asked about a late check out by an hour or two if possible, we were punted to the owner. The owner then took close to 24 hours to respond, giving a reply only a couple of hours before the check out time. Why can something simple like this not be answered directly by the booking agency who has the schedule information anyway? So taking 1 star off for communication, but otherwise we liked the property.
. Nov 2019
The house was just perfect for our needs. Plenty of space for everyone to spend time with each other, whether in the kitchen or living room, and the sleeping spaces were also very nice. The high number of bathrooms was also very convenient for our group! Only thing missing is a hot tub! ;)
. Oct 2019
I rented this house for my family to stay in for my daughters wedding so information is from my brother.
House was extremely dusty. My sister actually had to dust.
Burners were not installed correctly and my brother had to fix them before they could use the stove.
The air mattress did not hold air. (Also noted in a previous review so not sure if it wasn't replaced or maybe just popped again)
Overall it was a nice large home that met all of our needs.
. Aug 2019
Our family of 8 (4 couples) had a great time at this rental. Had everything we needed for cooking meals inside and outside. Everyone had fun with the tennis and basketball courts. Location was great for day trips to Trinidad, Patrick's Point, and Redwood State and National Parks.
. Aug 2019
We had a lovely stay at the house; we were a party of ten and everyone was comfortable. Good location close to the stores of McKinleyville.
. Jul 2019
It was perfect in every aspect to meet our family needs for this special time of celebration. We had no issues with getting into the home or any any problems relating to the property. We loved this home and its location and would love to stay here again, for my wife's 80th birthday.
. Jun 2019
Our family of 6 adults and 5 children (we were approved for 11) had a wonderful time at this home. We did take twin air mattresses for the kids, since there are only 4 large beds.
We loved the large, very quiet secluded lot. So much yard and deck room - and everyone enjoyed playing tennis and basketball. With the air hockey/pool table in the game room, the kids, teens and adults always stayed busy. There was so much to enjoy there just being together, we didn't always want to go sightseeing!
A few drawbacks: the kitchen was a little small for the size of the house, but fairly well stocked. We let the manager know that the oven only had one rack, so hopefully that is fixed. I would also suggest more linens. We were only given 11 towels for 5 days. Luckily there was a basket of beach towels. Also, the kitchen only had several thin small cloths. Not enough to really, wipe up or dry with.
Probably our biggest disappointment was the outdoor grills. Our sons were so excited to use the outdoor kitchen, but the grills were difficult to use and did not cook evenly.
Also, we had a small dog. We had been given some information of what was expected. When we read the info at the house, there was a lot more about where the pet can and can't be and leash rules. We feel this should be given to the renter before they make a decision.
Saying all of that...overall, it was a great place for a family. We had perfect weather, the area is great, lots of fun!
. May 2019
This house had all of the amenities plus that you would want in a temporary living situation. Location good. Stocked with necessary items. My only comment was that it advertised for sleeping 10 and should have been 8.
. May 2019
The Estate was absolutely perfect for our long weekend. Plenty of room inside and outside for us. We were attending a family wedding and the location of the Estate, so near the freeway exit, made getting around very convenient.
. May 2019
Great, interesting house in a really nice neighborhood. Deer roaming the huge yard. Clean, good set up.
. Mar 2019
The house was uniquely laid out and provided plenty of room for guests.
. Mar 2019
Was our 1st trip to California. We had an amazing time period the home this perfect! So much Room. We had a family of 9 and had plenty of Room for everyone. The basketball court and tennis court are perfect for the kids! Scenery is beautiful and the home is very well stocked! The master bedroom was beautiful with its own fireplace. Truly an amazing home. If you need anything the caretakers of the home respond immediately. I would definitely recommend this home and stay again.
. Dec 2018
Our family had a fantastic time at this property. We enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies and took advantage of the basketball court and the deep-seated tub.

The only problem we had was ants, but we caught them before they could infest our food. There was also plenty of ant-killer on site to spray down the affected areas.
. Dec 2018
It was a wonderful experience and I am so very glad we were able to stay in this gorgeous home. This home was close to all the activities we wanted (trails, the beach and shopping areas). Thank you to the owners and the management company for a great experience.
. Dec 2018
What a beautiful home with plenty of room inside and out. The place was very clean with lots of homey touches!! There was lots of outdoor space that came in handy when the rain stopped and the sun broke through! We definitely will come back to this beautiful place!
. Oct 2018
Four couples stayed here and a fifth spent most of the time with us but couldn't get out of their motel reservation. There was plenty of room for the ten of us to congregate in the living room and sit together around the dining table. We got together for one last Lumberjack game and the house was perfect.. The rental people couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.
. Oct 2018
This place was perfect for our annual siblings/spouses weekend. The outdoor space was perfect and we made good use of the outdoor kitchen. The house accommodated all 10 of us perfectly. Would stay again!
. Sep 2018
Our family vacation in McKinleyville was wonderful. the home that we stayed out at Vista was not only beautiful but made us feel very special. the only problem was that I have some handicap issues and it is a split level everywhere there's a step to get up or step to get down . However for the rest of the family it was wonderful the outdoor kitchen was great. We were up for a wedding so very busy and really didn't have time to enjoy the grounds but they were spectacular. As for the house itself the conditions were very nice gentleman was a dusting down all the cobwebs and washing all the windows when we got there and the presentation was beautiful the staff at the office were also wonderful I don't know how to say how helpful they were. I would definitely work with these people in this company again they took good care of us thank you very much. Cindy Van der Meulen
. Aug 2018
Everything was as stated. Great home, clean, easy to find and get into. Enjoyed the outdoor cooking area and the tennis and basketball court. We will definitely be back!
. Aug 2018
We loved staying at the Vista Dr house. The deck/outdoor kitchen is perfect. The outside stove is actually better than the one inside the house. The tennis court is awesome. We played every day.

Would have appreciated a few extra garbage bags and TP but not that big a deal to run to the store.

Overall, we loved the house. Will definitely stay there again if we get a chance.

. Jul 2018
All our children, they're spouses and our 4 grandchildren were all present since we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. We all had a great time walking through the beautiful redwood forests and enjoying the beaches at different places. The weather was colder than where we came from so that was a great surprise. The house was well kept and was perfect for our size of family. We only stayed for 4 days but would have liked to stay longer.
. Jul 2018
We rented the Vista Estate for a family vacation with our daughter and her family. We enjoyed the house and grounds. Everything was as described. I loved getting up in the morning and watching the many hummingbirds that visited the flowering plants throughout the property. We spotted deer on the property several times as well. Overall, this was a great home to relax, play and enjoy our granddaughters in. My only negative comment would be the ants that are in the kitchen area.
. Jul 2018
This was a perfect place for our reunion especially since our parents lived just walking distance from this house. The inside rooms were very nice and the bedrooms were very impressive with nice views. We loved the outdoor entertainment/recreation area. It is in a great neighborhood which made for nice walks. Plenty of seating at dinner time indoors and outdoors. I would highly recommend this home for reunions. There were minor issues, but communication with the owner was prompt.
. Jun 2018
Wonderful home in a perfect setting. Management was outstanding throughout the entire process. Truly the perfect getaway.
. Jun 2018
This is a large, clean and comfortable home to share with family. Everyone loved it! Having the outdoor kitchen was such a great advantage.
. Jun 2018
I had never rented a vacation home before, and this was the best experience from beginning to end. I almost booked with Home Away, but accidentally got in touch with Redwood Vacation Rentals. I'm so glad I did. Not only did I save money, the process was very pleasant. We booked the house about 8 months in advance. They notified me in April that my payment was due. About a week before our arrival they had me download their app. The entrance code was given to me, along with driving directions, etc. When we arrived, they had soft jazz playing, the house was very clean and it was such an uplifting and welcoming feeling. There were two bedroom suites. One suite is upstairs and the other is downstairs. There are two additional spacious bedrooms upstairs with a bathroom in the hallway. The fourth bathroom is downstairs just down the hall from the kitchen. The living room was very bright and open adjacent to the kitchen. There were french doors leading to a very large deck with an outdoor kitchen. In the back of the house was a full-size tennis court and a basketball hoop. The grounds were gorgeous. Every morning we sat out on the deck, had coffee and watched a doe with her fawn graze and walk around the property. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The house is in an upscale neighborhood, and you feel like you're in the forest in parts of it. I went running every morning. I felt completely safe going out on my own. The people were so warm and friendly, and you just wanted to stay forever.
. Jun 2018
We loved this house. So much character with a very comfortable homey feel. The only thing was we couldn't find any tennis rackets.
. May 2018
This was such a fun home for my young family to stay. The kids loved playing hide and seek in all the nooks and crannies. It was in a great location centered between the all redwood parks. The owner was responsive and helpful. The house was clean and ready on time.
. May 2018
We absolutely loved this house! I almost don't want to leave a great review because I don't want to share this awesome treasure with anyone! The house is large, super comfortable and in a great neighborhood. Plenty of space to be together but also do your own thing if you want. Perfectly located between Trinidad and Arcata. The grounds ware beutiful and the tennis court was awesome. We cannot wait to come back!
. May 2018
Had a great experience during our stay at Vista Estates. Very peaceful surroundings and comfortable home. lots to do in the area, especially if you like hiking amongst the redwoods.
. Apr 2018
The Estate @ Vista worked very well for our family. We used it as a base to see the sites both north and south. We had 10 people. There was room for everyone to have their own space. 2 of our party were on air mattresses which wasn't clear in the rental process. The kitchen was great for preparing meals and was well stocked. We loved the tennis court and basketball standard. The grounds are beautiful! The neighborhood was excellent. The house was clean, but it is a little tired in some areas and could use a few repairs. We did have an ant problem in the kitchen. Communication with the manager was easy. We really enjoyed our stay.
. Apr 2018
Our family was there for an event at Humboldt State University, and the Estate @ Vista was just perfect. Spacious and lovely.
. Apr 2018
We had great fun playing tennis, air hockey, being in the gazebo, on the lawn, and board games in the dining room.

The home and equipment was just what we needed. One mattress and one couch were not so comfortable. There were ants which are common in the county.
. Apr 2018
We loved loved this house and property! Everything was clean and beautiful and there was so much room to roam. The kids loved the tennis court and even road their bikes around it. Perfect manicured gardens and grounds. Plenty of privacy bc the space is very large. Comfy beds and didn't want to leave the downstairs master shower. This home made our trip very enjoyable!
. Feb 2018
We were very comfortable in this house.
The ability to be together as a family, yet have plenty of space to have room to be quiet and restful...was amazing
Everything was clean and most necessary essentials were present to a great stay
. Feb 2018
Fabulous time in the Redwoods. The house was very roomy and comfortable. The gardens and beautiful outside space was a bonus. Since we are Pickleball players, we thoroughly enjoyed having a tennis court.
. Jan 2018
Was a great place for families with kids, the recreation room and 2 separate dining areas made it easy for kids and adults have their own space. Was very happy with it.
. Jan 2018
The house is large and perfect for our family. Comfortable beds and space to spread out.
. Dec 2017
The house was in a great, quiet neighborhood. Well stocked kitchen with plenty of utensils, place settings, cups/glasses, pots and pans for our family group of 5 adults and 5 kids. The tennis court with basketball hop and yard were an added bonus that all the kids enjoyed. Unfortunately only so much time exists on vacation and we did not have a chance to use the amazing outdoor kitchen. The house was in wonderful condition and we enjoyed our stay. Only change I would make would be a bigger supply of bath towels since the instructions requested we not wash towels because they have a service. The few times we had contact with the management company (reservations, check-in and check-out questions) they responded in a timely manner. All-in-all, a wonderful home in a beautiful area that we would love to visit again.
. Nov 2017
We had the best time at the Estate @ Vista! The management was fabulous as well as the home. Plenty of room for our extended family. There were even rackets and balls provided for the tennis courts! See you next time!
