Dog-Friendly Home with Private Hot Tub, Large Deck, Fire Table & Washer/Dryer

Perfectly situated within a few minutes' drive of both Arcata and Trinidad, this comfortable home in McKinleyville is a place to experience the beauties of the Northern California Coast.

In this quiet residential neighborhood, you'll be across the street from a horse pasture and a duck pond, within earshot of the ocean waves at night, and only about a mile from the Hammond Trail which offers wonderful hiking and biking through spruce forests and along the ocean bluffs that follow the Mad River. You can easily drive south the college town of Arcata with its great food, music, and art scene, or head north to hike and fish along the coast in Trinidad.

Inside, this single-level home is spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. Enter into a light-filled living room with large windows, a flatscreen TV, and a desk workspace where you can log onto the free WiFi. A cozy dining area leads into the full kitchen, where you'll find stainless steel appliances (including a French-door refrigerator, a gas range, and a dishwasher), a breakfast bar, and access to the washer/dryer. Just beyond the sliding glass doors are a spacious deck with a gas grill, built-in bench seating warmed by a fire table, and an enclosed yard that's home to the private hot tub. Other options for at-home entertainment include a Ping-Pong table in the garage, a selection of board games, and a second flatscreen TV in the primary bedroom.

This house was perfect. Clean! Well equipt. Hot tub was great, good hot showers, comfortable beds and full size coffee maker AND Keurig. Those are all the most important parts. Extras like plenty of toilet paper, dish soap, laundry soap, hand soap, spices and cooking oil. Super convenient to hwy 101 for sight seeing. Dollar store 2 min away and grocery not much further. Just an overall great stay.

We stayed here to have a landing spot that was an easy drive to beaches, the national park, etc. It is close to the 101, but not so close you know you're near a highway. The fenced yard was great for our little dog. The kitchen was well stocked with basics. Based on other reviews that said there were no spices, oils, etc, we brought our own, but we found that there is now spices, oils, and a salt and pepper grinder. When we ran out of dishwasher pods, extras were delivered within a few hours.

Very nice home with , many extras. You wont need a robe, they are provided. Beds and linens very comfortable. The only difference with other rentals was no condiments provided. Take your own spices! A few tech issues but the Vacasa team took care right away.. Overall, wonderful experience.

We loved this home. It was so beautiful, cozy, homey. The hot tub out on the patio is incredible and we would love to come back one day.
