MAGIC GARDEN HOME IN ARCATA 2 BLOCKS FROM HSU - BUT QUIET & SERENE

Arcata House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

This is a gem. An exquisite old-rose garden cascades in front of your 11 foot, floor-to-ceiling bow window in the master bedroom. A wall of French doors opens onto a large deck that's perfect for catching the sun or sipping wine. Enjoy the outdoor shower and cedar hot tub. Quiet. Off the street, but right in the middle of charming downtown Arcata.

Stroll two blocks to the Humboldt State University campus. The Redwood Community Forest is around the corner and you can explore beneath the ancient old-growth redwoods. Check out Arcata's bustling small-town plaza with a local artists' gallery, Saturday Farmers' market, unbeatable French cafe and great restaurants featuring local, organic cuisine. And, by the way, we're a short drive to the ocean and miles of deserted beaches, too. Sound like a relaxing hide away? You have found THE magic spot.

This home is behind a locked gate. It's has a fully fenced yard and a washer/drier. Wi-Fi. No TV. It has a queen bed in the master plus a twin mattress in the master nook that can sleep one. The nook is special. You're right in the roses! There is a guest room with a queen bed. There is one full bath inside the house, plus the very private outdoor shower by the hot tub.

We welcome you. Peace, quiet and pure relaxation can be yours here at this virtual spa.

Guestbook comments from the manager
I had the opportunity to rent Jane's home with some friends from college. I feel that the title Magic Garden Home is an understatement...Jane's home is a real Oasis. The town of Arcata is cute, has loads of charm, and awesome redwood forest hikes, but my friends and I found ourselves wanting to spend most of our time at the house. From the sounds of trickling water of the small fountains, to the Buddha statues, the rose garden, natural hot tub, and deck that blocked any wind--it all made us feel so zen. One of my friends said repeatedly "I'm never leaving this house." I felt that same way. :) While we didn't meet in person (her nice neighbor greeted and oriented us to the home), Jane and I talked on the phone, emailed and text messaged--she was very accommodating and available for any questions/recommendations during our stay. Thanks Jane--we will all remember your place for a long long time, and hope to stay again sometime. :)

Reviewer Comments:
It was an excellent location and a very interesting and charming property. The beautiful gardens provided a very relaxing atmosphere and was a feast for the eyes in every direction. The water features were calming. The beds were comfortable. There are only two suggestions that would have made this a 5 star experience all around: 1) there was a little critter residing above the back bedroom who liked to try scratching his way through the ceiling between 2 am and 6 am making it very difficult to sleep. 2) the white sofa was unwelcoming because of the stains which made it appear dirty. In the overall scheme of things we really enjoyed our stay!

Manager responded on 8/8/2014:
We got your note about the "critter" and have taken care of it! Thanks for the feedback on other issues, and pleased you otherwise had a great stay! We welcome you back any time at the Magic Garden with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals!

Reviewer Comments:
We went to Arcata to visit Humbolt University. The location was perfect. We walked to the school and also into town. The town was adorable. The home was so inviting and the decor very eclecic. Tons of character and a really cool vibe. The property manager was super helpful when we arrived. She came right over to check the internet for us. We would definitely go back!

Manager responded on 7/6/2014:
Thanks Mary Ellen! It was nice meeting you, too, and hope your son likes the area and HSU. Magic Garden is a work of love by the owners. They are always pleased when guests are happy!

Great location - easy walk to the campus, wonderful backyard, deck and soaking tub. Suggestions: Full size coffee pot, BBQ still doesn't get hot enough and for the graduation weekend, we only needed 2 nights, but had to book and pay for 3 nights.

Owner's Response: Magic Garden is a lovely spot close to everything Arcta has to offer with beautiful drives to Redwood Forests and open beaches. Will pass on your suggestion and re-check BBQ. We just fixed that! We do have a 3 night minimum policy on all holidays including HSU graduation.

Reviewer Comments:
Beautiful house and garden, very quiet and restful. Wonderful art and furnishings. Really great kitchen with good quality tools, way better than most rentals. You could tell the owners care about the house. Really close to HSU campus in a quiet neighborhood. Only negatives: the BBQ did not get hot enough and the hot tub was too cool in the evening. The property manager said they will fix those things. The house layout may not work for some people. There should be a door on the master bedroom for more privacy. But overall it was a fantastic place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Yes, we did fix those things immediately. The hose from the propane tank to the BBQ needed replacing and the timer on the hot tub has been reset to come on in the afternoon to reheat the water for evening soaks! Thanks for bringing these to my attention and we hope you come again to the Magic Garden!
