Recent McKinleyville vacation rental reviews

Everything! Super cute vacation theme. House is spacious and beyond comfortable. Well stocked. Could have asked for anything more!! We will definitely try to return!

Wonderful house. Watched deer in morning having coffee. Great memories
Linda M. | Sep 2022
This home was perfect for our family! The location is central to the beaches north and Arcata just south. We have two young kids and the house was stocked with toys, kids utensils, a children’s potty seat in downstairs bathroom and we even found a baby gate for the top of stairs to use while there to keep our toddler safe from falling. It was also very clean and well cared for. The carpeted rooms were nicer than expected. Great cookware and food storage in kitchen. All around exceeded our expectations!

Where is McKinleyville, CA?

About 285 miles north of San Francisco, our McKinleyville cabin rentals are nestled along a quiet shoreline in California’s Humboldt County. This quaint town is only 15 miles away from the county seat of Eureka, meaning you’ll find an ideal blend of rural and city environments.

Things to do in McKinleyville, CA

You won’t have to go far to explore the beautiful nature surrounding you. Azalea State Reserve is within city limits and offers 30 acres of land to explore. The terrain is mostly flat, making it perfect for an easy stroll or early morning run, and if you visit in April or May, the air is filled with the sweet scent of western azaleas in bloom.

Just a few miles north of our McKinleyville vacation rentals you’ll find Houda Point Beach. This spot is popular for surfing or just spectating, especially during low tide swells. Bird-watchers, rejoice: it’s also home to the Northern California Coast’s largest breeding colony of Leach’s petrel, so be sure to pack your binoculars. A visit to Houda Point also puts you at Camel Rock Lookout, a perfect viewing point for the sea stack rock named for its two humps, like a camel’s back.

When it’s time to sample the local offerings, head to the tasting room at Fieldbrook Winery, open every Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Or you can enjoy a “brew with a view” at Six Rivers Brewery, offering a dog-friendly patio and the best spot to watch the sunset. The town even celebrates Pony Express Days, an annual fair that includes a pancake breakfast, chili cookoff, parade, festival with live music, local crafts, and a rodeo.

If you’re searching for a home away from home with beautiful beaches, access to redwood forests, and a charming small-town feel, our McKinley vacation rentals are just what you need. Take a look through our cozy homes and start planning your next trip to the Northern California Coast.
