The Space

This artist 3 bedroom 1902 Salt Box Victorian, listed in the Historic 'Green Book', sits on the edge of Humboldt Bay in beautiful Eureka, California {The original capitol of California}, and at the base of the Samoa bridge that brings you to the Pacific Ocean or to Woodley Island Marina where you can enjoy a cocktail on the deck and a fresh crab dinner as you watch the fishing boats unload their catch or a curious Harbor Seal playing in the water. Enjoy a bevy of activities such as kayaking on the bay, surfing, beachcombing, and bird watching, or take a cruise on Humboldt Bay aboard the Madaket to learn the Bay’s history. Explore the Ancient Redwoods, home to the oldest living things on earth, hike the 'Lost Coast, or visit one of the many forests where beauty and nature abound. Stroll through historic 'Old Town', and visit the array of shops and galleries rich in local art and wares, or enjoy a romantic carriage ride, where your guide narrates some history of "Old Town'. Fresh local vegetables, beef and seafood abound here in Humboldt and this is reflected in the selection of delicious eateries and four star restaurants, everything from pizza to filet migon. After dinner, experience a play at one of the local theatre companies. If it’s the nightlife you seek visit one of the many nearby casinos including "Blue Lake Casino", which is the only "green" casino in California. Whatever your urge Humboldt has what you want! Amenities of your stay include: Relaxing in your comfy one bedroom for up to two people. You have a private door from your room with access to the bathroom, that is shared, but has locks on both doors for privacy, as well as a private entrance to the outside. Enjoy use of the kitchen, video games, TV, and internet access. After a long day of exploring, schedule a massage with your host Kath, who has her licensed business on site, then enjoy a good book and some tea in the hammock in our beautiful garden next to a trickling fountain. Parking is available. Your hosts Tom and Kath are excited for your visit!

Check In
  • Nous avons reçu un chaleureux accueil en arrivant chez Tom et Kath. Nous avons passé une très bonne nuit et Eureka est une magnifique ville.

  • We had a great time in Eureka and Tom & Kath were excellent hosts. They were ok with our very late check in and offered coffee and bagels in the morning. We definitely recommend staying with them!

  • Tom and Kath made excellent accommodation for our late arrival, left us with very clear instructions. Their room and bathroom was very nicely decorated and bed is very comfortable. Because we had to leave early next morning, we didn't get to spend too much time with Tom and Kath.

  • Theirs is truly honesty in advertising.....a charming artists' abode whose hosts made me feel fully well as my dog....And it is reaffirming to find two such partners who exude a joy of life well beyond just the financial 'race w the rats!' ----very accommodating and enjoyable.

  • This was my second stay with Kath and Tom, my first trip being last April. I recommend these two and their lovely home to anyone wanting to visit the Eureka/Arcata area.

  • My daughter and I enjoyed our first airbnb experience at Tom and Kath's. They were very welcoming hosts and full of helpful information. The room and shared bath were very clean, and the bed was super comfortable!

    June 2014
  • Tom and Kath's place was perfect for us, and they were very generous and kind hosts. The room and bathroom were absolutely spotless -- super clean and everything was very comfortable. We only had one night in Eureka (unfortunately), but had a lovely time in our whirlwind stopover. Tom recommended driving the Avenue of the Giants, which is definitely a must do if you are driving south -- we loved it!

  • Our stay with Tom and Kath was great! The room was just as described and very clean and tidy. As for the hosts, they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Overall a fantastic experience. I would love to return someday and would highly recommend this location for anyone looking for a pleasant and relaxing place to stay.

  • Very friendly and helpful couple who tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible for us and our son. We were allowed to use the kitchen and they had toys for kids. The room is small but was big enough for us. The shared bathroom did not give any problems. In the morning Tom served us fresh bagels and coffee and offered to walk with us on the beach (unfortunately we had to decline). We will certainly consider coming back when we are in Eureka again.

  • Kath and Tom were the BEST HOSTS!
    I was flying solo, exploring the north coast and redwoods, and in looking for a good base of operations, I happily came across their listing. They know so much about the area, it was so helpful.
    The room is completely perfect also - big comfy bed, warm blankets for the cool coastal nights, big clean [shared] bathroom with an awesome overhead rain-style showerhead.
    I was there 3 nights, and would happily have stayed for a longer trip, or recommend it to anyone looking at that area.
