Overview

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:

The property is a wonderful retreat with beautiful landscaping, design and artwork. Lighting controls well designed! I wish I could have figured out how to turn out lights outside headed to bathing tub and sauna, as the lights shine into master bed at night. Check to make sure the oven works and the disposal and dishwasher work at a reasonable hour so you can make use of them. Samantha was nice enough to come try to light the pilot on the oven but to no avail. We ended up having to wash all our dishes by hand since a breaker was blown and we couldn't find the breaker box. Delicious linens, pillows, beds. Loved that there is a piano. Found it offensive that the property owner asked us to clean up and out away all our dishes, take out the trash and recycling AND left an envelope to tip the housekeeper. Would be helpful to get further instructions on recycling-the bin had bottles in it when I dumped ours, but we are used to paper, plastic, glass, all recyclables going in one bin, not sure if it works the same in CA.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found the home amazing and comfortable. The snafus have been fixed! We can't predict when there will be a failure in any of our appliances or electrical. Unfortunately during your stay both the GFI plug went out causing the wiring that ran the dishwasher and the disposal to not work and the oven needed the entire pilot light assembly replaced. Both are fixed now and working excellently. Sorry you found the instructions confusing and offensive. We ask all our guests to please tidy up after themselves, and the tip is always optional. It was a bit more difficult for you because the dishwasher wasn't working and we appreciate your efforts! I will also update info on recycling, as it is an all items bin. Please come again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for appreciating the loveliness and cleanliness of the home. We do have great neighbors and the way the home is built and the surrounding plant life totally envelope the property in it's little Magic Garden. Not sure what you mean about the tub. It is a soaking tub rather than a hot tub, and we treat it twice a week and it is on an intricate filtration system. Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals values you as a guest and hope you visit again; try one of our 60 other properties!

I had a wonderful stay at Magic Garden. It was conveniently located and very quiet. It was just perfect for me, but if my husband had been along he wouldn't have liked no TV. I had a few issues with the lock box and the door lock, but the property manager was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
