We loved the 70s theme and decor. It was also extremely neat and clean, everything we needed was there. Views were great from the outside deck.
Scott L. Jul 2022
Beautiful home with an awesome view! Loved the deck and daily wildlife. And super close to excellent Redwood hiking trails!
Mai X. Jul 2022
Love the hill top view.

This is our second time at this house, and it was even better than before - which I didn't think was possible! We traveled from the east coast for a week to explore all the Redwoods and Humboldt County has to offer. The home was an excellent base from which we hiked, beachcombed, took scenic drives, viewed wildlife and had a tremendous vacation. The house is well stocked and the retro decor is done in such a tasteful manner. Every couch was super comfortable, the beds had us sleeping like babies and the giant kitchen allowed all 6 of us to participate in meal prep without bumping into one another. I had vowed to return to this house 5 years ago on our first visit, and I will definitely be back again sometime. Oh, and the wrap around deck was ideal for meals in the evening, stealing peeks at the ocean during sunset and watching the amazing array of flora and fauna right in the yard!

Beautiful views all around. Very well furnished and spacious. Also very comfortable beds and lots of fluffy blankets.
Kitchen well stocked with any kind of cooking pots, pans, utensils

Central to all the great hikes and sites.

This home sits on its own, private little hill with views of the mountains and a sneak view of the ocean. The location is perfect for a family or couples wanting to experience the grantor of the California Redwoods.
Al D. Aug 2021
We loved the architecture of the house and the location with a view of the Pacific Ocean and the Orick Valley. If you are a runner, you can run about two miles down to a very private Ocean Beach on a gravel trail. There is a grocery store in town, but basically there are no restaurants in the area, so get your groceries in Crescent City before coming to the house. The location is right in the middle of Redwoods National Park, so all park areas are easy to access.

What’s not to love about this place. It’s clean, quiet, in a beautiful location, easy to navigate to, and immaculately kept. An experience to reminisce for as long as I’m able.
Jayme T. Jul 2021
This house is perfect for a restorative vacation! The huge deck provides views of the forest, the ocean, and a constant chittering of hummingbirds flying around the Crimson bottlebrush bush. The kitchen was well-stocked and orderly; everything was clean; the beds were comfortable; and having 2 living areas was great when some of us wanted to watch TV or read while the younger folks played video games (brought their own console.) I would definitely return, given the opportunity!!
Bonnie C. Jul 2021
The house has a retro theme throughout and was comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well appointed with plenty of dishes, pots/pans etc. The location was perfect for quick access to amazing hikes and Redwood features like Ladybird Grove and Fern canyon. Be prepared for the very steep driveway! We saw deer on the property and many elk nearby. We loved our stay.
Andrew A. May 2021
The 50s decor is a little schticky, but in a fun way. House is very spacious. The deck is enormous. Very private, but centrally located for lots of great redwood activities. Only stayed 2 nights, but a good spot and accommodation to stay longer.
Amy T. Apr 2021
Loved loved loved everything about this place. The retro look is so well-done, not tacky but tasteful, and makes up what is ultimately a really comfortable home with lots of space. Perfect for our family to either relax together or spread out. Well-stocked with cookware in the kitchen. Laundry very handy, and fireplace super easy to use. Also, perfect location for being close to the woods for hiking, and also tucked away from the rest of the tiny town. 20-40 min away from Trinidad and Arcata for kayaking and mountain biking. Just a couple miles from the ocean. Again, could not have been more perfect!
Timothy B. Feb 2021
Large home, conveniently located, and SUPER clean. I love the retro look. Kitchen is fully equipped, outdoor grill, and tons of games, dvds, and activities for the kids. We loved our trip and hope to go back!
Doug B. Feb 2021
Everything was ready when we arrived. Perched on the hill we had command of the view. Redwoods nearby, and ocean down the road. Who could ask for more? Thank you so much!
Larry K. Sep 2020
If you are looking for privacy look no further, this house sits atop a hill looking over the entire town with its wrap around deck! You can even see the ocean from a distance. The inside was very spacious. I wasn’t a big fan of the retro look but it was kept up nicely. The property, privacy and views make it worth every penny! Had a great time, I would rent this house again. Thx
Tooraj R. Aug 2020
Very relaxed vibe.
robert s. Jul 2020
Although the home is rather remote, we were thrilled with the size of the house, the view and the cleanliness. We look forward to returning.
Natalia S. Jul 2020
We spent a wonderful week in this house. There was everything we needed.
The property manager Charlie was very helpful with the issues we had with the booking (we had no problems with the house itself).
Thomas S. Jul 2020
Super cool house tucked away on a hilltop with easy access to parks and beaches. We spent more time at the house than we thought we would because it’s such a relaxing spot to be in.
Lee M. Jul 2020
Amazing house, view, and location. Exceeded expectations!
Cathy T. Jun 2020
My family had a great time staying in this roomy 1960s house. It was such a nice centrally located place to come back to after our many hikes through the Redwood Forest. My daughter "loved" the retro vibe!
Conor F. Mar 2020
Perfect redwoods NP basecamp. Excellent vantage over the valley and literally minutes from the NP. The wrap around deck is great and the interior is spotlessly retro.
Jason L. Feb 2020
The location is just minutes away for famous trails of the red wood national park. The house is on top of the hill and no neighbor to disturb. So quiet and the view in the morning is just great. House itself is clean, bed is comfortable, and all 4 of us love it. Well maintain. We definitely stay there again next time.
. Oct 2019
The views from this retro home were beautiful. The location was perfect for our visit to the redwoods. The amenities in the home were exactly what we needed. We had a lovely stay in spite of PGE turning off the power due to wildfires.
. Sep 2019
What a stay. Viewcrest Retro is the best home rental ever. The views off the huge sweeping deck are to die for. This place has everything you need including giving you Serenity! Also, the staff at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals are the Best! If you need a place to rejuvenate and be near the magic redwoods, this is it!
. Sep 2019
the property was absolutely amazing! Beautiful views, private and peaceful. It was hard to move from the comfy deck! The house is clean, more than comfortable with all the needs that you would think of. It felt like home and the tiny little touches such as coffee, tea and even laundry detergent was much appreciated! Lots of trails to explore in the neighborhood plus walking the beach at sunset. Great escape from the hustle and bustle to enjoy and appreciate nature.
. Aug 2019
Great House, lots of room and excellent view, close to Highway 101, Redwood National Park, view of the ocean, elk, cows and other wildlife.
. Jun 2019
We decided to find a place to stay in Orick, as it is right in the middle of the Redwood National Forest. The Retro Country Home was amazing, with all the comforts of home. We had an incredibly relaxing stay withy brother and sister-in-law. The proximity to the forest trails was great, and although we did not venture to the beaches, the views of the ocean were awesome.
. May 2019
We loved our stay at Viewcrest Retro Country Home! We have stayed at many vacation rentals, and this one ranks up there with the best. I was leery of the mid-century retro design, as that's really not my thing, but it was truly beautiful! It was warm and inviting while maintaining a true '**** Van Dyke Show' feeling!! Home was very open and spacious and kitchen was very well stocked! The only slight negative I have is that the BBQ grill is on it's last legs. It was usable - but should probably be replaced soon. Also, the deck is huge - seems like a great opportunity for a hot tub! :-) Location was perfect for exploring the Redwood State and National Parks. Lady Bird Johnson Grove and Fern Canyon are both must-sees!
. May 2019
Spacious home in a private setting. Loved the custom layout - lots of space! very well maintained inside and out. Outdoor gas grill was perfect - I wanted to go home and replace mine! Kitchen items were a nice touch: K-cup, drip brew and French press all
available, plus coffee for each. We had a relaxed stay and enjoyed the near by Redwoods.
. May 2019
The Retro Country Home was all it promised to be. A beautiful home that sits above Orick Valley. The home was spacious and clean. It is located near the Redwood State and National Parks making it an ideal location for a vacation in the area. The hosts were attentive and helpful. We would certainly stay again.
. May 2019
Our experience was the best. This house is welcoming, comfortable, and ideal. The views from the wrap around deck are stunning. We could not have asked for anything more. Dori, from Redwood Coast Rentals went above and beyond to make our stay perfect.
We came to the area to explore Redwoods National Park.
I would stay here again if I ever have chance to come back to the area.
. Apr 2019

Excellent. Great communication by the rental agency. Very helpful.

We had such a fantastic time here. The location is perfect with so many beaches near by and the redwoods right up the road. The house was absolutely lovely. It was very clean, had a spectacular view from the porch and had everything we needed.

. Oct 2018
We enjoyed staying at Viewcrest Retro Country Home, with easy access to the Redwoods State Forest. We also enjoyed riding with the Buckarettes, going for a two hour horseback ride into the Redwood Forest. The place was spacious and CLEAN with a view of the valley and the distant ocean. It was perfect for relaxing and touring the area.
. Sep 2018
This was the third Year in a row that we have rented the Viewcrest Retro home. Peace, Serenity, Beauty, Privacy! Not only do you have the awesome Redwoods and the Coast, you have this relaxing, private Serenity Home to chill at. Just wish that the home could talk, cuz I know that the home has a very Happy story to tell! You can feel the good vibes. This home has everything that you would ever need. The whole staff at Redwoods Coast Vacation Rentals are the BEST! Thank You for sharing your home with us once again! See you next Year!
. Sep 2018
Very nice. We were surprised at the lack of restaurants or grocery stores in the area.
. Sep 2018
This home was very spacious, clean, and had great views! The view of the ocean was not as close as we thought from pictures, but the view was good of mountains and Redwoods. So clean we kept thinking we left the sliding doors open. Close to Beaches, Mountains, scenic drives filled with wildlife. Palm cafe had excellent food and friendly staff.
. Aug 2018
just as advertised. great location to redwoods park.had one window with crack.
. Aug 2018
We were vacationing with our older son and 3 grandchildren, and were thrilled to see that this home was all it said it would be. The home is just lovely and the views from the deck are fantastic. It is located centrally, between state and national parks, as well many other great places to visit. The owners of the home,left a very detailed list of places to visit and do while you are there. (wish more owners did that) There was also and folder on one of the coffee tables with additional information and brochures. Thank you!
The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils, pots, pans and dishes that you will need.
We loved driving just a short distance to a park just outside of town every day, where you were pretty much guaranteed to see Elk at least once a day.
If you are in this area this is the home to rent! I would definitely come back here if we are ever in the area again.
. Jul 2018
What a delightful vacation home! It was in superb shape, roomy, and very clean. We loved the fireplace that warmed us up in the chilly mornings.
For us, it was in a perfect spot, very close to the Redwood Forest National and State park which is why we chose it; and also close to Trinidad where we climbed up Trinidad Head which had a beautiful view. Trinidad also has a very nice grocery store where we picked up food, because there isn't anything around the rental except a convenience store that does have some groceries.
All in all, it was perfect for us!
. Jul 2018
My family had a wonderful, peaceful, and relaxing stay at this home. It's location near the National Park and National forest was perfect. We were mesmerized by the number of hummingbirds in the tree off the wrap around deck.
. May 2018
This home is in a beutiful location. Our stay was very peaceful and comfortable. This home has lots of room. The pellet fire place was very nice to relax by on cool evenings. Wish we could have stayed longer.
. May 2018
The House was wonderful.
. Apr 2018
Home was clean, plenty of space, beautiful view out back. I will recommend it to all my friends that are planning on coming to the redwoods. Would say plan to get your groceries in one of the bigger towns before coming to the home- they have everything to cook meals here, there is only one restaurant and a few small markets that have limited items. Many of the parks major hikes and elk viewing are so close to this home-you do not need to go far, once here!
. Apr 2018
Excellent home to get away from it all. Great views of the hills and farmland below. Ocean view from part of the deck though a small, wide, tree blocks some of the ocean view. A 40 min drive to Arcata but that is OK in exchange for the quite. A courtesy recommendation to owner to put space heaters in the bedrooms. Overall, a beautiful property.
. Feb 2018
Beautiful house. Very clean and comfortable! A hot tub on the deck would make it perfect.
. Jan 2018
First the house is amazing, and very dated (on purpose) and we were very comfortable there with out little family of 5. the town of Orick was unexpected, quaint, and pleasant with access to coast, redwoods, a handful of other state parks, and some really good pie at the local diner. The house itself had everything to cater to nice quiet nights at home as well. this was the best deal I have ever achieved on vacation rentals in general, and the property well kept. the winter months turned out great for a visit to northern california, we will be back for sure!
