What makes this house unique

My family, who are scattered across this continent, bought this property as a place to gather. Siblings and spouses enjoy being with each other while the kids play and enjoy 'Cousins Camp.' This has been the perfect place for our extended family to enjoy each other and for the cousins to truly know each other. We hope to keep this tradition going from generation to generation.

Our reason for offering our home as a vacation rental when we are not using it is to share the joy our family has when we gather here.

Perfect home for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for getting together for a family reunion. The landscaping is beautiful, the deck is a great place for the adults to hang out and visit, and the swing set and tree house make the property magical for the kids. The kitchen has lots of space for cooking for a group. A beautiful area to make lasting memories.

Nice time, we enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful. We all enjoyed our stay. You might consider installing an on demand hot water heater, there was 12 of us and to get a hot shower we had to do it in shifts. You might also want to reconsider charging a non-refundable fee of $175.00 to your guests if you want all the floors and carpet vacuumed prior to departure leaving you with just the mopping to do.

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. There are two water heaters feeding the house, but we will consider your suggestion of an on-demand water heater. We ask our guests to vacuum in order to make a first pass at getting the beach sand up. We then vacuum again, mop, clean and sanitize the entire house and tree house, and clean property.

Amazing, comfortable and accommodating! We will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

Really wish I could give this property over 5 stars! It truly was accommodating and convenient. A beautiful property that I wish I could call my own! We had 3 young toddlers, and the property felt safe and kid friendly. They loved the play area in the backyard. Games and movie selections were great. Every time I started to think I needed something, I just took a look and it was easily found. Very clean, spacious and comfortable. Sue and Carole were very helpful. We had a great time and can't wait to visit the coast again.

Spacious, beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed meeting up with family (California & Washington) and letting the cousins play. This is our second time staying here. Grandparents and the kids all love the home and location. Everything is clean and well cared for, we stay at a lot of vacation rentals and this is the one the kids love the most. Having the playset and large deck makes it easy for the adults to visit and be with the kids.The home location is ideal for hiking redwoods and for Crescent city beach. The owners are wonderful and take great care of their home & yard.

Very spacious, great for big families, reunions, or lots of friends getting together

  • 4 of 5

This house is big!!! It has a beautiful front and back yard, and if you have kids old enough to sleep in the tree house, they will love it! Lots of beds and mattresses to sleep on, lots of living and entertaining areas, and a big well-stocked kitchen. It's a little inland, but you can take the 101 to get pretty much anywhere and it's a gorgeous drive as you are surrounded by walls of trees on both sides. The house has a bit of a musky odor to it; however, we enjoyed how quiet it is and our stay there.

You will be in the beautiful redwoods -- a national treasure -- with many National and State forests nearby. Ranger led hikes are available, as well as the opportunity to enjoy hiking on your own. There are a number of fabulous trails of varying length. Take along a picnic lunch and make it a day. Bird watching is fantastic at Lake Earl, only 3 miles away. There is just about any activity you might hunger for except snow and cold. Crescent City remains cool all year round -- neither cold nor hot. You can enjoy the beautiful blue skies and many sunny days, as this property is in a sheltered area protected from the ocean wind and fog -- even though the ocean is only four miles away. Of course, there are a multitude of beaches up and down the coast. Many of these beaches have very specialized attractions. Sand dollars are prevalent on a different beach from the beach with ocean polished glass and different from the best beach for a bonfire and different from the beach with the best tide pools. Wow! You are a mere 10 minutes from Oregon or downtown Crescent City (20 minutes to Brookings, OR -- a fun day trip with another harbor and more beaches). If collecting shells, make sure to not collect anything alive, and remember all the other people and animals that want to share those shells.

Trees of Mystery -- an educational and beautiful hike through a privately owned redwood forest -- complete with a sky ride --is about 25 miles away. There are numerous lighthouses in the area. Crescent City (and Brookings) both have a number of wonderful restaurants. Nearby annual events include the Del Norte County Fair, Sea Cruise Car Show, Smith River Days, the July Kite Festival and many, many festivals celebrating everything from flowers to berries to fish to local artisans.

This home is the perfect place for a family looking for a house they can enjoy and relax in. There is a large play structure in the backyard, along with a creek, a small pond for the children and a tree house for the teenagers wanting their own hideaway. Plus a large deck with plenty of seating for moms, dads and grandparents to relax and watch the little ones enjoying themselves. A Weber gas barbecue and an outdoor space heater are also deck residents. Plenty of privacy on the entire property and yet the house is not so rural as to be isolated.
