Recent McKinleyville vacation rental reviews

Loved the area. The house was perfect for our daughters birthday. Beds are comfy.
Jody W. | Jan 2023
From the moment we arrived the mood was set. It felt like a home away from home with the lighting, jazz music, perfect temperature and the decor. We loved the well thought out mermaid by the sea decor and the view of the ocean and nightly sunsets. I couldn't have chosen a better location or setting. It is away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to everything you might want to explore. We have stayed in many VRBO's and this house was really the most well stocked. Someone has a great eye and attention to detail. It was greatly appreciated. The staff at Vacasa was so responsive and helpful. Thank you for making this a special birthday and a place to escape the stress of our day to day lives. We hope to visit again in the future.

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.
