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.

Reviewer Comments:
Recently visited our daughter at Humboldt with friends (who stayed at a hotel). We thoroughly enjoyed the house, especially the wonderful soaking tub in the beautiful garden. The only downside to the house was the lack of seating in the dining room. Because the weather was too cold for dining al fresco, we couldn't cook a meal in and invite our friends to join us. An additional leaf and a few more chairs would have solved the issue. But the house is really geared toward accommodating four people tops. Otherwise location is great and house is very cozy!

Manager responded on 11/8/2013:
Thanks for the feed back, and yes the dining room is small yet the whole place is nice and cozy. Will look into more seating at the table, at least a folding chair or two. And that tub is real nice! Glad you enjoyed it!

Reviewer Comments:
Several friends stayed here during my wedding this past weekend, and they all had great things to say about it. I went in briefly to snoop around and was thoroughly impressed by the tasteful decor and clean, spacious living area.

Manager responded on 9/30/2013:
Thanks, Brian! Our owners at Magic Garden are also inspirational people themselves and their personality reflects throughout the home. Perhaps your one year anniversary could be spent relaxing here at Magic Garden in the Japanese soaking tub with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals or any of our 50 other properties!

Reviewer Comments:
I realize this is someones home, and there is a vast difference in clean to the person who lives there and to us as guests. I do not want to rent a property with a dirty stained sofa, blanket, shower curtain, toilet, sink, stove, and butcher block. Nor do I want to deal with countless spiders as I enter the gate or try to relax on the patio. The property good use a good cleaning inside and out.

Manager responded on 8/20/2013:
I am really sorry you felt that way. We will look at those issues. This is the first time we have had a negative review of this home since we have rented it for over 2 years to more than 40 different groups.
