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:

Less than ten minutes off hwy 101 a few turns on some rough (potholes) roads lead to a little house on a hill surrounded by forest. The view is awesome from every window, the silence is peaceful yet you are close to everything. Loved having a washer & dryer in the garage, the location was excellent for exploring parks and eating out (restaurants/groceries). Close to ACV airport too. The kitchen isn't really set up for cooking but is great for heating leftovers, keeping some groceries. Has heated floors which kept me warm in cold weather (makes strange sounds as they heat and cool, but once I realized what the sound was, didn't bother me). Unfortunately I didn't sleep well on the bed but everything else about this rental was great and I missed it as I went up & down the coast exploring.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a lovely cottage - very private and surrounded by Redwoods. It really does have everything a couple needs. The kitchen is small but has all the appliances. Although a larger frig might be nicer, the small one there works well. The bathroom is lovely. Sofa and bed both quite comfy. If your HSU student likes to have a couple of friends over for a dinner during your visit, like ours does, this is probably not the place to do it but it does have a Weber Grill and a nice little outdoor seating area if the weather is fine. All in all, a lovely place and you can't beat waking up to the view and still being just a few minutes to town and HSU!

Five stars ***** in all respects! Exceeded all expectations. We'll be back.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our four night stay at the cottage. Everything in the cottage was clean, new and perfectly decorated. Comfy bed with lots of pillows. Gets five stars ***** in all respects. Property is in a very nice, quiet neighborhood up on a hill away from the town a little bit and we were so happy to be surrounded by a literal forest of gorgeous Coast Redwoods on three sides! Every window has an awesome view. Saw several deer each evening. We found no need to drive more than 5 minutes for excellent spirits and Farm to Fork sustenance. We loved the newly remodeled Minor Theater (built 1914) and hung with the friendly locals at a hip little bar called Richard's Goat!! Arcata is very close to the Redwood parks so it was only 50 minutes or so to get to the big old growth groves which is a must see. We were there in October so we practically had the trails to ourselves.

While this is a gorgeous property, the bed was uncomfortable. It along with the pillows felt hard as rock. This along with constant noise from the fridge made sleeping difficult.

Truly a Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The property manager was very helpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was very happy with the location.

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at this small, comfortable, and convenient home in its truly hideaway location among the beautiful redwood trees and giant ferns. Fun to see leafy vistas out of all windows including the skylight! Finding it furnished with more than just the basic necessities and with laundry facilities on site was another plus. Arcata and Eureka provided fun shopping and good dining experiences and the Arcata Saturday market was especially colorful and entertaining! We consider ourselves fortunate to have found this special rental with its homey feel!

Map

You are close to Humboldt State University. The Redwoods Park is close by with plenty of hiking and biking trails. You are about 1 mile from downtown Arcata restaurants and shops. The home is nestled in the Redwoods and quite private and quiet. Very relaxing
