Recent McKinleyville guest reviews

This house was very welcoming. Clean and the beds were all very comfortable! The yard/outside area was huge!!! Very close to town which was nice. We would totally stay here again!
Ann Marie C. | May 2024
This house was perfect for our family getaway! We had 9 people and we all loved this property. The property is beautiful with the pond, outdoor jacuzzi and backyard deck among the trees. Going to sleep at night with the frogs singing was a treat.The house itself is beautifully decorated. Beds were so cozy and comfortable. The bathrooms were spacious and everyone loved the heated bidet! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook for a large group. We created some wonderful memories surrounding the large kitchen island- talking and laughing while cooking and eating. The hammock in the master bedroom for the deck is a lovely touch! all in all- highly recommend!

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.
