Let this be your city home-away-from-home or, as the French call it, your “pied-a-terre”.

Arcata City Pied-A-Terre is a lovely, comfortable, fully furnished 1400 square foot city flat that sleeps up to six guests with three bedrooms (one Cal King and two Queen bed); one full bath with tub and shower, and one ensuite half bath in one of the bedrooms. The modern, fully-furnished and well-appointed flat is located in a quiet neighborhood, yet only two blocks west of the Arcata Plaza.

The apartment was built in the 1950’s by a local lumberman. It has a spacious blonde-wood paneled living room with extra large flat-screen TV, opening out into a lovely dining room with bamboo dining set, and built-in blonde wood sideboard. The walls in both the living and dining rooms are hung with charming 1930's vintage Hawaiian posters. The fully equipped kitchen has the original red Formica counter tops and honey-colored wood cabinets, and 30's vintage food and wine posters. Three bedrooms, each with their own distinctive decorative styles, provide comfort and fun for a good night's sleep. The apartment sports a charming front porch with a wrought-iron mosaic bistro set overlooking the neighborhood, perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning. We even have a large laundry room with washer and dryer, and a utility sink. Entrance safety and convenience is provided by a security door at the bottom of the stairs.

The apartment is located 2 blocks west of the Arcata Plaza, and surrounded by fabulous restaurants, stores and boutiques. In fact, steps away is a cafe in our building that is a local favorite and award-winning restaurant and shouldn't be missed.

Humboldt State University (HSU) is located less than a half mile away and can easily be reached by foot or car.

Arcata itself is well-located in Humboldt County. The Eureka/Arcata Airport is 20 minutes north on highway 101. Eureka is 15 minutes south. Many other lovely attractions such as beaches are easily within 30 minutes, and we are 55 minutes south of the Prairie Creek Redwood National Park. The world-famous Arcata Marsh is a short walk or drive away and is a fascinating and important resting and feeding site for thousands of birds and other wildlife.

Sorry, no pets or smoking are allowed in the apartment, porch or stairs.

Much care has been taken to provide this spacious clean city flat with a feel of ease and relaxation, and has everything you need for the perfect vacation.

Looking for a beach get-away? Please also see the listing for our other vacation rental: The Agate Beach Guest House in Big Lagoon (vrbo listing #349-916). It has a stunning ocean view and is just 20 minutes south of the incredible Prairie Creek Redwoods Park. It has everything one needs for a perfect beach vacation.

ARCATA FLAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the flat for a month while in town for a business project. From the very first contact, the owner was extremely responsive and helpful, including suggestions of parks and activities for our toddler. The flat is very comfortable and feels like a home, rather than just a generic rental. The location is ideal - walking distance to the plaza, grocery store, etc., but very easy access to the freeway and no problems with parking. Barbara and Jim made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We had a wonderful time and look forward to an excuse to return!

ARCATA GET AWAY

  • 4 of 5
This flat is spotless and well-maintained by the owners who are very polite, accommodating and try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. You are walking distance to practically everything you would want to do in Arcata so plan on parking the car and hitting the streets by foot. Our stay was wonderful and we are returning in May and look forward to our visit to the flat and the surrounding area.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN ARCATA!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at the flat in Arcata a couple of times now, and found it to be the perfect place to stay when visiting my son at HSU. I can't imagine staying anywhere else! The flat is in a great location. There is a really good market across the street for groceries, and there is an excellent restaurant next door. The flat is also a couple blocks to the main Square in town, and only about a mile or two to the HSU campus.
The flat itself is lovely and clean. There is a security gate at the bottom of the stairs, so it feels very safe. There is a cute patio upstairs with a table and chairs, so you can sit with coffee in the morning. The kitchen is well appointed, and the bedrooms are very comfortable. The living room is light and airy, and the flat has a spacious feel.
The owners are very accommodating, and pay attention to every detail. They have always done everything possible to make our stay an enjoyable one. I would highly recommend this wonderful Arcata flat!

COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER FIRST TIME!!!

  • 5 of 5
Barbara and John were actually on the property when we arrived and were changing the locks on the front door which first off showed to me their commitment to the property and the people staying there. When we entered everything was wonderfully kept and the gift basket was a surprising and delightful touch. The Humboldt wine inside of it was perfect after a long drive :) And the brochures gave excellent suggestions at to what there is to experience!
Its a bit chilly around this time so as soon as we cranked the heat up we felt like we were home. The beds were comfortable enough to dive into (all 3). Ugh, the water pressure..AWESOME!! The kitchen was perfect to cook and accommodate a dinner party we had on our last night with friends. Not to mention its furnished very well; cooking wear, w/d combo, all linens, etc. More then anything, when we left we accidentally forgot a few items behind as well as taking a set of keys that did not belong to us. they have been SO KIND in working with us to make sure we get our things and the keys to them as well. Thank you Barbara, we can not wait to visit again!!

We are especially gratified that our guests want to, and do, return. It lets us know we're doing something right.

Arcata is home to Humboldt State University. As the case with any university town, the list of fun, edifying, delicious activities is nearly endless. In addition, Arcata is located in the center of one of the most beautiful and diverse eco-tourism spots, Humboldt County. We have everything from beaches, to eco-groovy shopping, to homemade foods, wines, beautiful art, music and theater. As an example, the famous jewelry manufacturing company of Holly Yoshi is blocks away from the apartment, as are many local breweries. Enjoy!
