The French Apartment in Old Towne Eureka

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental apartment. Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

422 2nd St Eureka, CA 95501 United States

Elegant 2 Bdrm, 2 bath French Apartment in Old Towne Eureka. Former 7 room bordello in 1885 historic building featured on HGTV. Luxurious, in a perfect location right in the heart of Old Towne. Look at the photos and see just how perfect the French Apartment is! This sought after apartment has been an executive rental for years and have now decided to make it a vacation rental because of all those that have been inside insisting that we do so! Really Unique & Inviting 1200 Sq. Ft. Rooftop Garden with Glassed-in Conservatory, with seating for sipping tea or wine and a separate office with wifi! Great location right in the heart of Old Towne Eureka - Outdoor Cafe's, Antique Shops, Fantastic Restaurants, the Boardwalk, Horse drawn Carriage, Live Music & wonderful strolls are all literally just outside your front door. And this is a perfect location to start your exploration of the north coast! Parking will not be an issue for you as we have a single car garage right under the apartment, plus free public parking lot for that extra car if needed. (Due to the antique nature of this home we request adults only. No small children please.)

The French Apartment is in a perfect location for exploring Humboldt County because in addition to being in walking distance so much in Eureka, you are also a short drive (15 minutes) to the Arcata Plaza for plenty of shopping, eating, and drinking, and entertainment options, and 40 minutes North to Trinidad and it's beautiful beaches. McKinleyville and the Little River State Beach and Clam Beach are only 30 minutes away. And, of course, Redwoods! There are wonderful hiking and biking trails in the Redwood Park by the Zoo in Eureka and also through the Arcata Redwood Community Forest & Park (great playground too and disc golf course) and Prairie Creek Redwood National Park is about 45 minutes to the North with over 100 miles of trails through the Redwoods and on the Coast. On your way up to Prairie Creek Redwood National Park you will pass through the Humboldt Lagoons which area wonderful destination to explore, and don't forget about Tall Trees & Lady Bird Johnson Redwood Hiking Trails.

    John K from Hood River, OR recommends this vacation rental

    The French Apartment was quirky fun. It is furnished in a combination of antiques and antiquies with an early twentieth century theme. That said, the beds were comfortable for two couples, the furniture invited use, the bathrooms were spacious, and the kitchen well equipped to cook meals. The location is as downtown Old Town as can be, kitty-cornered from the downtown plaza, easy walking to restaurants, shops, a grocery co-op, the waterfront and some charming old homes and mansions. Downtown Eureka is good walking. Management was available, helpful and courteous. In all, a good spot in a good spot.

    a guest from Charlotte , North Carolina recommends this vacation rental

    This apartment was such a unique place to stay. Right in old town Eureka with the best coffee and waffle breakfast across the street. We were there for a few days to explore the Redwoods and it was perfect for day tripping. The most amazing co-op grocery store is walkable and the putdoor patio and kitchen were so nice that we actually just cooked at home in the evenings. We had a parking space in an enclosed garage which is a real plus in downtown Eureka. There is no central air conditioning which is usually not an issue in Eureka, but even though it was mid 80s, all the windows opened and the Victorian houses were uniquely designed for air flow, so it was not an issue. If you are looking for charming and eclectic, I would stay here again.

    FABULOUS!!!! We absolutely loved our stay and couldn't get over how adorable everything was. It gave us a lot to talk about and we won't ever forget our experience. The location was perfect for getting around to all the shops and restaurants. We loved sitting out on the deck reading and eating...the weather was PERFECT! We will be back! Thank you for designing such an awesome apt to enjoy.

    a guest from Placerville, California recommends this vacation rental

    My teenage daughters and I set out to have an escape from our everyday lives. We wanted to be outdoorsy during the day - hiking, trips to the oceans, wandering through the redwoods. But at night we wanted to relax and feel indulged.

    We rented this lovely little apartment, about an hour from our other destinations. It was a visual delight. We loved the library, the little artifacts scattered about the place, and the atmosphere of antique luxury.

    A couple of caveats: on the weekend, since it's downtown, the front part of the apartment was noisy at night. Not a big deal if you retreat to a bedroom and close the doors.

    The internet was a bit slow with 3 of us on it at the same time.

    The instructions with the keys were incorrect. The front door key was not the one described in the instructions. We obviously still got in, but the manager might wish to re-address the key instructions. :)

    We would definitely stay here again. It was spotlessly clean, homey yet sumptuous, and had the best shower on the planet, which was quite welcome after a day filled with long hikes. Downtown Eureka is charming and has an abundance of used bookstores, which pleased our bookworm family to no end.

    Thank you for providing such a lovely spot to land.

    • Manager Responded on 1/1/2015

      Thanks, Karen! We get many compliments on the French Apartment and so glad you liked it! Please visit us again next time in Eureka! I will revisit the key instructions so that they are correct and look into internet speed.

    The apartment is lovely, beautifully furnished and centrally located in the old town. Once we were inside, we felt very safe and secure. The apartment is lovingly renovated and decorated, suitable for a refined visit for adults. It was almost like staying in a museum, but more comfortable.

    Garilyn R from Colton, Ca recommends this vacation rental

    This was the last stop on a 3 week road trip of the California Coast that started in San Diego. The vacation was to celebrate our youngest son graduating from high school and moving on to College. The condo was absolutely beautiful with a perfect location. Our son absolutely loved this place which is high praise from a 18 year old boy who is more interested in football and mixed martial arts than culture and history. He spent countless hours going though all the antique books. This home is a destination spot within itself and I would highly recommend it to anyone without small children (10+). There are antique from floor to ceiling in this home. Including indoor and outdoor space this home has ample room for relaxing and getting away from each other. The location is exceptional, one block from the bay. Literally steps from a speakeasy (very cool little bar) and steps from a great little café. Not to mention countless other cafes, bakeries, book stores and antique shops. It really felt like stepping back in time. Although it is close to everything there is absolute quiet in the home. It is also absolutely safe using the automatic garage door opener to get into the garage with direct access to the home. Although I rarely cook while on vacation, because the kitchen and formal dinning room was so fabulous I actually chose to cook dinner one night so that I could use those beautiful rooms!

    • Manager Responded on 7/20/2014

      Sounds like a great way to end your California Coast Road Trip and celebrate with your son on his continuing journey! Really glad you enjoyed it. You are one of our first guests so we are excited that you appreciated all of the care that goes into the French Apartment! Thank you for staying with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals and hope to have you back for another of life's celebrations at our Eureka rentals, Arcata Rentals, Trinidad beach rentals, Victorian Village of Ferndale rentals, our cabins and homes at the Redwood National Park, or even Willow Creek!
