About Mercedes Compton

My husband, Craig, and I have been married for 32 years and love Humboldt County! We met while attending Humboldt State University in the 1980s and stayed here. We have a beautiful son and daughter-in-law; we love to visit them and the rest of our family up and down the coast. Traveling also allows us to indulge in our passion for mid century furniture and decor. The 'hunt' for that iconic mid century piece is what keeps us going, and we can think nothing better than to share some of our finds with you! It's interesting how we look back in time to find the most modern way of living - look to the past to create interiors that are in the vanguard of fashion. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. We are only minutes away and are available if you have any questions or issues during your stay.

Mercedes Compton purchased this house in 2015

Why Mercedes Compton chose Eureka

Eureka is peppered with wonderful mid century homes. We fell in love with this mid century home because of its beautiful architecture. The home was built in 1959 and designed by Walter K. Blackburn.

What makes this house unique

This home is situated on a dead-end street with a beautiful, natural redwood setting. You will enjoy walking in this neighborhood, and Henderson Center is only s few blocks away; there you will find a drug store, hair salon, sandwich shop, bakery, post office, thrift stores, pet store, and banking institutions. The Farmer's Market is also found there during the Spring/Summer where you can buy fresh organic produce!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying here. I was with my family celebrating early Christmas and we cooked 2 of the 3 nights we stayed there. The kitchen literally has everything you need. Which is unlike many of the other places I have stayed throughout my travels. It is great for a group, the seating around the table fit all 6 of us, and the living room is very cozy. The beds were comfortable. We needed one thing and Mercedes was beyond quick to respond and help out. I stupidly forgot to bring my bathing suit so we did not use the hot tub, but the backyard was beautiful with plenty of seating and a grill! Thank you for making this such a pleasant home to stay in!

Incredibly beautiful with period decor, nice layout,and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest vacation properties we’ve rented. It is a beautiful mid century home, that has been nicely renovated and updated while keeping many nice period details. The layout and kitchen are very functional and easy to work in.

The house is near the end of a no outlet road in a quiet residential neighborhood. You can walk along the road into the forest which is very pretty. The backyard has nice large redwood trees and makes a nice place to sit out and watch the forest.

The owners live locally and were exceptionally supportive and helpful.

Great attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in a lot of VRBO properties and this one had the best attention to detail, everything was in correct for mid century modern (except the beds which were really comfortable :-). It also has a really well equipped kitchen, best we've seen in a rental. The location is great, really quiet but less than 10 mins from the center of Eureka. Privacy is good (important for those who have a Californian attitude toward hot tubs). My only criticism, and it's a really minor one, would be that some labels on the light switches would help becasue it's a bit confusing trying to find the right one.

Redwoods in the City

A great Place. You are in the Redwoods but only blocks from downtown. Very Retro, clean and comfortable.

I can't think of a better vacation rental experience

  • 5 of 5

6 adult couples had a 4-night family reunion here, and we all agreed it was top-notch. It was in a very quiet neighborhood and was surrounded by redwoods. The entire house, down to the dishes, was decorated in mid-century modern, but the kitchen and baths were entirely updated. Everything we needed was there, the beds were comfortable, Mercedes was very accommodating, and we agreed that we will return to this house the next time we come to Eureka to visit our sister.

Lots of light from skylights and big windows, easy parking, nice gardens (Mercedes, better cut that bamboo that is encroaching over the fence onto your property!). There is a hot tub, but we didn't use it. I assume it was as good as everything else in the house. Great experience!

Everything was awesome about this place! The house was immaculate and well-stocked with amenities. It was located in a very quiet/private neighborhood, but minutes away from everything in Eureka. It was our first/best family vacation ever! Couldn't have asked for anything more. We hope to return!
