Experience a different side of California. The victorian seaport of Eureka isn’t like the California that most people envision. It’s not girls in bikinis roller-blading down the boardwalk, or crowded beaches that are too hot to walk on during the summer months.
The beaches of Northern California still have surfers; they still have kiteboarders. But they also have lots of room for flying kites, taking dogs and horses for long runs, even driving on the beach in certain areas. And the waterfront has long been a working waterfront for fishermen and longshoremen, during the years of the thriving lumber and fishing industries.
But Eureka has had to be imaginative lately. With the loss of the lumber industry, and the dimishing fishing industry, Eureka had to have a facelift–something it’s needed for a long time.
The grande dame of Eureka, standing proud overlooking the bay, is the Carson Mansion, an exquisite Victorian mansion built by lumbar baron William Carson. Now a private club, the Carson Mansion sets the bar for renovation and restoration of historical buildings. Eureka has many Victorian mansions lining her streets, some still family homes, some turned into apartment buildings, and some are bed and breakfasts.
But what’s new to Eureka is Bayfront One, thoroughly modern condominiums that sit on the water’s edge. This is the premier spot to be in Eureka, and they’re now available as vacation rentals. Just steps away from fine dining, specialty shopping, and art galleries the condominiums at Bayfront One have spectacular views right in the hub of the North Coast. Watch the activities of the bay from through huge plate glass windows.
Take a week’s vacation on the North Coast and settle into your home away from home at Bayfront One, waterfront condos in Victorian Old Town, Eureka, Calif.
One and two-bedroom units available from $1,500-1,800 a week. Available by the day also.
