House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
We grew up in Arcata and Blue Lake and love the ocean, beaches, and Redwoods of Humboldt County. Among the owners are a chiropractor, and a school administrator, an orthodontist, and a retired school psychologist. We all have grandchildren, but remember, 60 is the new 40 (or something like that).
Richard purchased this House in 2005
Why Richard chose McKinleyville
The views are fabulous and the river amazingly alive with wildlife; we keep the Whales Tale Cabin immaculate, and the value is great. Truly a "one of a kind" property. Very private. Very comfortable. Very cozy.
What makes this House unique
Incredibly Private, Serene, Relaxing, I think the best views within miles, Comfortable, Convenient Location far enough away and yet close enough to conveniences.
non smoking only
Minimum age of primary renter:28
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
This is a pleasant vacation home, clean comfortable and in a convenient location. Good communication with the owner .
Thank you for being so understanding during the PG&E power outage. You and your friends were wonderful guests and we would love to have you return. Regards. Richard.
Amazing location, cute & comfortable home
The location was incredible - water, dunes, and quiet except for the beautiful nature sounds (birds). It was hard to get me to leave for the daily activities! Very cute home, well maintained, far off from the street. There was a power outage right before we arrived which created some hiccups (central heating was not working and spa control malfunctioning), but the owners did the best to accommodate (brought in electric plug-in heaters and reset the spa control). One of the owners (very nice) lives next door, but your privacy is maintained. My only suggestion would be for the property to keep a lamp on at the front door and side of garage (or a longer setting on these security lamps) as the path to the entrance and the front porch is very dark. I would definitely stay here again and we are looking forward to doing so!
We’ Be back!
That says it all
This was a very lovely place to stay. Beautiful property and a great experience.
Thank you. We work hard to make sure our guests have a great stay at The Whales Tale Cabin and I am pleased you had a good time. Thank you so much. Regards. Richard.
We loved it
Cozy comfortable homey. Our kids loved it. Great view. Nice fireplace. Everything we needed was there. Would be nice to have a throw on the couch for evening/early morning. Nice place to stay for Redwood National park
Thank you. We will add a few throw blankets. We actually had them but they disappeared. I think guests take them to the beach and forget to return. ????
