Very pleasant 2 bedroom upstairs townhouse is nicely furnished and has a deck overlooking a coastal redwood forest.

The University clock tower bells can be heard in the distance to give you that collegiate feel. Drive (or ride your bike) to nearby beaches, hiking trails, parks, fishing and much, much more. Amenities include full kitchen, deck with propane BBQ, flat screen LED TV, cable TV service, high-speed Wi-Fi internet, telephone for local calls, washer/dryer, 2nd and 3rd TV’s in bedrooms, 2nd bedroom with full bed and sleeping loft can also be used as an office. We do have a long term tenant living in the rental below so your quiet hours observation is requried. Please note that the fireplace is just decorative and not operational. For longer stays of 30 nights or more, we will be charge double the cleaning fee. If it is not automatically added in your booking, we will add the charge for you. We do this because we come in mid-stay and change your linens and do some light cleaning! A longer stay may have more required cleanings.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great location! Shorto walk to town and Humboldt State University were big pluses. Easy access to Hwy 101 and only 20 minutes to the hospital in Eureka for work. The townhouse had all the conveniences needed including wifi, cable, a full kitchen & dishwasher, and the beds were comfortable. Would definitely stay here again! And thank you to the management company for their great service!

Reviewer Comments:

This is a nice unit. Very well appointed with everything you would need in the kitchen.bath towels and bedding. If you are looking to be close to HSU, this rental is in a good location. However, there were some things to be aware of. Parking is very limited. So when you have more than one vehicle, it's going to be a walk to the front door. Also, there were three cars parked on road leading to unit with people living in them. This freaked us out a bit. I'm sure they are harmless, still didn't make you feel too safe. The bathroom is awesome with double sinks, but if someone is showering and you still want to get ready, no other mirrors in the entire unit. This made getting ready a bit of a hassle. Would be nice to add a mirror in both bedrooms. The unit was fairly clean. Some cobwebs on the ceiling fans and on the artwork on the walls. Had a musty smell as soon as we opened front door. We stayed in left bedroom and the bed was lopsided. One side was firm and the other side just sunk and you rolled right to the middle. We killed 11 spiders inside the unit.

Reviewer Comments:

As you can see by previous comments, the driveway is very steep and skinny. The parking is limited and our small car just fit. If you have another vehicle, it will have to be parked out on the street. Terrace street is closed off just after the townhouse but there is very little space to park. Chairs were more comfortable then I thought they would be and the beds were very comfortable. The bedrooms had blinds and curtains so you could sleep in. Great water pressure in the shower and loved the movable shower head on a hose. Internet was excellent and the unit has cable TV with lots of shows to watch. Neighbor below and next door were quiet but the unit was not constructed to be separate so you can hear the downstairs neighbor. Kitchen is well equipped – only lacking a collander and large saucepan. A couple of miles down California Street is an entrance to the Arcata Community Forest. The trails very pretty but also very hilly. We liked Murphy's Market for grocery's. Enjoyed our stay here.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything was absolutely perfection. My friend and I played music late into the night and were able to get much more writing done than we normally can with our busy city work lives. I'm only 21 and I already want to move to Humboldt with my kid and wife after the stay here. Everyone around was incredibly friendly and the place was perfect for the four of us that stayed. (five if you count our one year old!)

Perfectly located for our trip to take our child to HSU as it is a few minutes drive away. Easy drive to downtown and the beaches up the coast too. Comfortable living room with small deck and delightful views from all windows. Two comfy bedrooms ( the single loft bed could use a real mattress however!) and a good size kitchen. The house was clean and there was coffee and beer upon our arrival :)

Reviewer Comments:

This was our home base for a family vacation to the Redwoods. Townhome was clean, nicely decorated. It's located in a very quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, although we didn't do meals there, except for breakfast. Everything worked fine. We had no issues to call management about while there. The only complaint from our end is that the bed in the master room was is a bit too soft and starting to cave toward the center. Probably time to replace it.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a nice time. We will certainly look into the bed and check the mattress and the frame. We hope you can come again and enjoy Arcata with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals and our beaches and redwood forests!
