Recent McKinleyville vacation rental reviews

If you wanna be out of civilization, but still very close to civilization, then this is the spot! When you turn onto the dirt road expect no service at all for most carriers, no TV, no people, you're in the wilderness, surrounded by redwoods. The cabin is perfect and you have EVERYTHING you need to make food, shower, sleep, BBQ, etc. Pretty good pricing too :) I would stay again!

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.
