Located in the heart of Humboldt County’s lost coast, the Shelter Cove Vista Cabin offers stunning ocean views, a sunny patio complete with gas grill, seating & lounge chairs, and fun accommodations for the whole family. Just 4 blocks to the boat ramp, cove beach, Mario’s Marina, and Mal Coombs Park. First floor has the kitchen, living room, full bath, and one bedroom with a queen bed. The second floor has a loft area with a twin bed, a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed, and a 2nd full bathroom. ADA Friendly.

Shelter Cove is a quiet escape at the southern Humboldt County Coast. Wonderful & scenic walks along the beach and shore front, friendly parks, little cafes, and lots of fishing are all part of the alure. The park is great for throwing the frisbee, and there are other parks and beaches nearby as well that are just a short drive. A fun, 9 hole public golf course in this beautiful setting is fun & welcoming. For those that want to hike in the mountains, you are about 40 minutes from the King Range mountains with plenty of high quality & challenging trails.

Finally, when we feel like relaxing at the home, you have plenty of outdoor seating to relax and kick back with some good books and good company ;) Enjoy your vacation here.

Vacation Rental Reviews by

Pretty views and excellent management

Review by anna l.
The cabin is spacious, clean, comfortable and well kept. Location is very good -- a step away from the town with views of the ocean but close enough to commercial 'downtown'. The manager was easy to communicate and responsive to our requests. On the last day, we had car problems and the owner and the manager showed a lot of patience and generosity by allowing us to stay the whole day without charge. Thank you guys for understanding and support.

The photos of this property do not do it any kind of justice.When I booked it, I thought the property/furniture looked a bit worn, but I could not have been more wrong. Everything was amazing. I have no words for the views from this property. I have never seen anything like it. As a native Californian from the Bay Area, I had almost forgotten how gorgeous undeveloped coastline was.I have never stayed at a rental property that was this well-appointed. They had literally everything you would need. The town was beautiful, the people are so friendly, I can't gush enough.The only complaint I have, which is of no fault of anyone, is the drive there. They weren't kidding when they said it is a long, winding road. Lots of hair-pin turns. We will definitely be back but will make a plan to stay in Shelter Cove for the entirety of our vacation, rather than leaving each day to do touristy things. There is enough to do in Shelter Cove to keep you occupied without ever having to leave.Thank you Machi family! We will be back!

Thank you for leaving a review, and I'm thrilled to hear you had the opportunity to stay at the property. Shelter Cove is beautiful year round, with miles of coastline and trails to explore, and what a comfortable home to return to at the end of the day! Cook out on the gas grill while enjoying the fantastic views this home has to offer. Thanks again and look us up at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals when planning your next trip to the North or Lost Coast!

Beautiful place to stay, but careful...

Review by Olivia C.
I really enjoyed this house. It was perfect for our visit to shelter cove. The views from the back deck are amazing. You dont see any other homes, just breathtaking coastline stretching away from your feet. The home itself is well appointed and has everything you would need for basic meal prep and staying comfortably. It was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We stayed for 3 days and really loved walking around, eating everything available, and going to the beach. Upon leaving, I was not able to find exact directions for check out though. There are many correspondences to weed through. I took our trash and left no dishes in the sink. I did not vacuum or do the sheets. Maybe this would help you avoid getting hit with an additional cleaning fee. They also said I had a dog on the property. I am a dog owner but she stayed home. Possible dog hair definitely could have been transferred and I just paid the extra 90 on top of the already quite high cleaning fee but I feel like it is worth mentioning to help others avoid this.

Manager Response:
I am very sorry that this was the experience you had, we do not normally charge an extra cleaning fee unless it's warranted. I appreciate the feedback on you experiencing confusion on the directions for check out, I will double check it is clear for future guests, but it's very minimal, we do not ask you to dust, vacuum, mop etc. and we haven't had any issues with previous guests, but I will look into the directions going missing. Thank you for taking a moment to leave a review, we appreciate all the feedback we receive from guests. Thanks again!

Beautiful Spot

Review by Mark H.
We had a fantastic stay. The view is great and we very much enjoyed fresh fish for dinner caught from our kayaks. Great place to launch kayaks, quiet and sheltered. The house was perfect and provided plenty of privacy. We enjoyed watching the fox hunt below the deck and the large buck was nice to watch as well. Can't wait to come back again.

Relaxing Home

Review by Lisa A.
Great home for relaxing and getting to experience the Lost Coast. Just sad that our time was so short. Had everything that you would need. Oh yes, and the VIEWS! This is the place for that! We LOVED it.

Sounds like you will have to come back for another stay, we would love to have you! Please look us up at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals when planning your next trip to the North Coast, and I'll be sure to send the owner your glowing review. Thanks so much!


Review by Brennan C.
This quiet and charming cabin on the hillside is a great family rental! Everything was incredibly clean with many small touches that were above and beyond. Our group really appreciated the clear directions and detailed notes throughout the house.

Thank you! Guest have been really happy with Shelter Cove Vista Cabin. We look forward to your return!


Review by Martha M.
We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We appreciated the ceiling fans and would have liked to have had air conditioning due to the hot temperatures (92F) that weekend. Very unusual not to have good, cool sleeping weather on the coast.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thank you for taking a moment to leave a review of your stay at Shelter Cove Vista Cabin. It is very unusual to have such high temps along the coast, which is why very few homes come equipped with central air conditioning. Ceiling fans and open windows will help to drop the internal temps. We appreciate the feedback and would love to have you back again to Shelter Cove Vista Cabin! Please look us up at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals when planning your next trip to the North Coast!

Shelter Cove Vista Cabin: The Best Vista in All of Shelter Cove

Review by Dawn K.
This property and its view of Shelter Cove is awesome. Each day we enjoyed the amazing ocean views from the wrap around deck and from within the house through the numerous large windows. Great location. The house is a short 10 minute walk from the marina and tide pools which was very convenient for frequent beach combing excursions. Access to the Lost Coast beach trail is only a short drive away. The house itself was very spacious, clean, well kept. Beds were clean and comfortable. Several members of our family enjoy cooking and we found the kitchen to be well equipped and met our needs. We were pleased to find the "General Store", just a few miles from the house, was well stocked with groceries, something we did not expect. We also discovered that Shelter Cove Vista Cabin has a very special connection to the history of Shelter Cove in that it was once occupied by one of the original founders of the community. May I suggest that this fact be shared as it may be of considerable interest to future guests. Our family's visit to Shelter Cove was memorable; it truly is the "Gem of the Lost Coast" and well worth the drive. If we were to return, and I hope we will, Shelter Cove Vista Cabin would definitely be our lodging of choice. Heartfelt thanks to the owner for sharing your home with our family.

Manager Response:
Thank you so very much for the wonderful review of Shelter Cove Vista Cabin! It appears it was a perfect fit for you and your family, that's what we love to hear! The owner of the property really takes into consideration the guests needs and has supplied a full kitchen. I will speak with her about adding a note about the history of the house, and some history of the surrounding area as well, for those guests who enjoy some local history. We would love to have you back anytime, so please look us up at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals when planning your next trip to Shelter Cove, and thanks again for leaving such a wonderful review!

Great place!

Review by Jason H.
Really wonderful house in a beautiful town; comfortable and safe for little kids (including a nice washer/dryer), and great neighbors who took the time to call me about a package that arrived for us after we left. We stayed there to do the Avenue of the Giants marathon in Weott (about an hour north) and would love to go back to explore the Lost Coast trail, which has a trailhead a couple miles away.

Thanks so much for taking time to leave a review of Shelter Cove Vista Cabin! We would love to have you back again any time, and yes, it would be the perfect place to come home to after spending a day exploring the Lost Coast. Thanks again for the review and we hope to have you back soon!

Relaxing, scenic getaway

Review by
We had a good four-night stay at the Shelter Cove Vista Cabin. The views were spectacular. The house was clean and in good shape and included a bunch of games in case of a rainy day. We saw the tidal pools, black beach, and giant redwoods. My only complaint was checkout is at 10 and by that time you have to have all linens and towels washed and in the dryer, so final morning is hectic.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Shelter Cove Vista Cabin, and my apologies you felt rushed the final morning at check out. It is a larger home and takes a fair amount of time for the cleaner to finish, before the 3 PM check in time the same day. However, I will look into the washing of the linens by guests and see if there is some way we can streamline that process so guests aren't responsible for that. Thanks for your feedback, it's invaluable to us!

Weekend Getaway

Review by
Great location, easy to find, great view. Amenities were awesome. Our family really enjoyed ourselves. Our only complaint was the early check-out time and the charges if you requested a later check out time. When we are on vacation we like to take our time instead of rushing. So a 11 am check out time would be more suitable considering the rental wants us to wash the laundry we used before we leave. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thank you so much for your feedback of Shelter Cove Vista Cabin. I'm very happy to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay. The check out time of 10 AM is due to the fact that as it is a home and takes much longer to clean and have ready for the next guests checking in at 3 PM. If there are no guests checking in, we can usually accommodate a little bit later of a check out, you would need to call your property manager to verify. Please do not hesitate to request a later check out the next time you stay with us, and if possible, we will accommodate! We'd love to have you back to Shelter Cove Vista Cabin soon!

Vista Cabin

Review by
Hummingbirds, hawks, spectacular views, and a very special and welcoming community in this small town. Spacious and well-maintained house. One of the best vacation rentals we have ever enjoyed. The drive over the King range to reach Shelter Cove keeps the daytrippers away.

Thanks for the great review for this fantastic house! Hope to se you again with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals!

Vista Cabin Experience

Review by Gladys B.
This is a comfortable house with magnificent views. What an enjoyable getaway. You have to slow down for the drive out to Shelter Cove, which is a great start for a relaxing stay at Vista Cabin.
