The house was just perfect for our family visit to the Redwoods. The house was very comfortable for the two adults and seven children (ages 4-12). There were many games and books available for children and adults during our downtime. Everything we could have needed was available and we were only a short drive to stores, restaurants and anything else we could have needed. The neighborhood was friendly, with neighbors waving hello as we drove by. We had a wonderful time and have already recommended the house to friends traveling to the area later this year.
The view from the house was wonderful. The only issue we had was there was no wifi or 4G and the LTE coverage was spotty at best. We did not expect this and found ourselves having to drive into town where the LTE was more reliable to research restaurants and hiking trails we could head to each day. Not a deal breaker or anything, just be prepared.
We had an amazing time at Diane and Jeff's Mckinleyville oasis. Beautiful view and home. Everything was in order and easy to deal with. D & J were great hosts. We were lucky enough to get to meet them before we left. Hope to make it back with the family for the summer steelhead run!
We had a great experience! This is a wonderful place - even better than the pictures! Everything you need is there - a great kitchen, cozy areas to enjoy the magnificent scenery and even some board games. Everyone really was impressed by the master bathroom! We would definitely come back.
The house was beautiful and the view stunning! The kitchen was very well appointed (we made Thanksgiving dinner for 8 and couldn't have asked for a better set up). Start to finish it was a wonderful experience.
Thanks for a wonderful place to stay while in the area. The view was amazing, and the house was lovely, spacious, and comfortable. It was a perfect place for me and my friends to relax after running the Redwoods marathon. The hot tub on the porch was especially appreciated after the race. We are already planning on coming back and staying next year. Thanks Diane!
The home was beautiful and comfortable. It was a lovely stay in a gorgeous setting. I definitely book again next time I'm visiting my family in McKinleyville.
McKinleyville was a perfect place to stay for our redwood adventures at prairie creek state park. I liked the chill feel of being here versus Arcata or Eureka. The house is nice and offers a comfortable bed with an epic view of the ocean. Diane was very prompt in answering my initial questions and she had a binder full of q&a's. A big perk about this place is the very hot, hot tub. After hiking all day, it was extremely helpful as it was the hottest hot tub that I've experienced. One issue is, is that it's really not ocean front as there is the Mad river in between. We considered passing it but it seemed like more work than we have liked. Overall it was a good fit for us and I hope it is for you as well :)
Diane is a wonderful host. She was very welcoming and helpful with restaurant and hiking recommendations. Her home is beautiful, and you awake to spectacular view of the ocean. I strongly recommend this home.
There are a lot of reviews for Diane's house and I can only add a few words. When we step in inside,
people said: 'we want to live here', and it was a sad feeling when we were leaving. This a very well build house, with wonderful view. Don't plan too much activities in the area, leave time to enjoy the house.
Diane has a well composed notebook that thoroughly covers all that one might need to know. The listing description is spot on as this is a lovely, lovely location with a wonderful view of the wondrous natural creation beautifully displayed and viewed from the back deck.
This was a galpal get-away and we all enjoyed your master bath shower!
This was a rare splurge for me but suppose the price reflects the location.
Thank you Diane.
Diane and Jeff were wonderful guests. They are welcome back anytime.
Diane is my lovely Aunt and you can see my Uncle Jeff in the photo as well. They are fantastic warm people with a beautiful home right on the northern california coast. Ever since I was little we have had our Christmas dinners there and it has always been a place filled with fun and family. They have always been awesome hosts and the house is set up for a great family coastal adventure. I would recommend their house to any family or group of individuals traveling as well as vouch for my family's hospitality and kindness as hosts in the future. You are going to have fun out here!
My sister Diane and her husband are great people who love nature and beauty, which shows in there wonderful home. We have spent many evenings enjoying the warmth of there beautiful home with great woodwork while enjoying the view of sea lions in the river, crashing waves of the pacific with an occasional whale spouting in the distance. You will not regret this awesome place to stay.
