  • Love this property


    Kathleen and Greg are excellent hosts. Checked on us a couple times to see if we needed anything and even gave us carrots for the bunnies and fresh eggs for us! Our 8 years old grandson loved it.

    The property is well maintained and very quiet in a nice neighborhood. Close to stores, the coast and points of interest. We look forward to our next stay.

    Highly recommend. My son moved to the area 2 years ago and this is the first time we have been out to see him. He has a nice studio apartment but it would not hold all of us. This work so nicely, we were able to see the sights and still have family meals and down time. Beds are comfortable, kitchen stocked, house clean could not ask for more.

  • Redwood Trip


    We were looking for a place to stay close to The Redwood National Park and found Happy Chicks retreat. It was perfect for us! We didn't want to stay in a hotel and were looking for a place with a kitchen.

    The location in McKinleyville was just below the parks we visited so it was an easy and beautiful drive into the parks everyday. The hosts really thought of everything - kitchen had all cooking items anyone could possibly want, the place was exceptionally clean, and the thoughtful bottle of wine and beers in the fridge - so kind.

    Saved the best for last - the bunnies, goats and sheep! So much fun waking up everyday and getting to feed all the animals. They were the best hosts ever. Thank you again for making our trip so memorable.

  • A grand tribute to the seventies but with modern amenities


    We really enjoyed our stay and Kathleen and Greg were great. We started each day feeding carrots to the bunnies and goats (the chickens and sheep seemed uninterested). The house was a lot of fun and we enjoyed the whimsical nature of the place. Easy access to parks and beaches. We would definitely stay here again.
