The house and location are wonderful. There's access to the Arcata Forest through the back yard with lots of hiking/biking trails.

Our family's 6-night stay at the Upscale Exclusive in July was perfect! We could not have asked for anything more. The property description was accurate regarding all aspects. We arrived very late in the evening to find a warm, well lit home to greet us. The home is clearly cherished and the up to date maintenance reflects this fact. The location of the home is private and steps away from a redwood trail system that is picture perfect. I only wish we had more time to spend here to enjoy a glass of wine on the deck. Our family of four enjoyed day trips to the Avenue of the Giants, Ferndale, kayaking at Big Lagoon, and Fern Canyon. Dining at Starz, Toni's, Los Bagels, and Campground satisfied everyone. We all wished we could move to this picture perfect slice of heaven!

Beautiful family home that opens into the Humboldt Forest. Walk off the deck and onto the trails.Well maintained yards that make you feel like you are in the hands of nature. Everyone in our family from 8 - 75 had a favorite place in the house and in the yard.

Beautiful home in a beautiful location near HSU. House was clean and well appointed. Excellent experience.

My family was so excited to see the beautiful home nestled next to the Arcata Community forest. The home is warm, inviting, clean and so comfortable. It has everything you need to enjoy your vacation

This home was perfect for our family gathering prior to my son's wedding. Plenty of room in a beautiful home, amazing deck and yard to wander through, well equipped kitchen, and sufficient bedrooms and baths for us to get ready for the weddimg.
The management staff brought an iron when we could not find one in the house.
I think the only negative was all the closets were filled (truly filled) with personal stuff---something I hadn't experienced in other rentals.

My family loved our stay at your house. My wife, teenage daughter, and myself were taking my son to college at Humboldt. We arrived at your house one day before his move-in, so he slept in the house only one night. The rest of us spent (3) nights at the house. We loved the direct connection to the Community Forest in the back yard. The Master Bathroom was wonderful. The amenities were amazing. We liked the security of the home and the key pad access was great. Loved the selection of board games. Played many of the games, some repeatedly each night. My family actually talked about how great it would be to buy the house. Also, the house is about a (5) minute drive from the "Humboldt State University" parking lots. Staying at the house also allowed us to safely store my son's belongings before he moved into his dorm the next day. We would definitely stay at the house again.

This home is well appointed and comfortable. The yard is beautifully landscaped and the deck was a terrific outside gathering space. It was very nice to have a living room and separate family room for our family and friends social time. Having the gorgeous redwood hiking trails just behind the house was a huge plus! We would definitely stay at this home again.

We could not have asked for anything more. The house had an open floor plan where the family could visit and enjoy each others company. That included the wonderful and large deck. The setting was beautiful and literally a stone's throw from a great nature trail. When we arrived, the chair back on one of the living room chairs was broken but we hardly used the living room. The blind in the master bath did not lower all the way and the cord was broken, but who raises the blind in a bathroom? The home was nicely furnished and just a great place where you had everything you needed. We used the barbecue twice and that was a great feature that save time and expense. My son goes to HSU and I hope we are welcome to stay at this home again.

Beautiful home and yard. Loved being able to access forest from back yard. House very comfortable but the owners have way too much"stuff" in all closets and drawers. No cupboards for us to store our kitchen. Dishes, on lower shelf, were not a full set, although there were sets of things way up high. All closets contained clothes, boxes of their things. It made us feel like we were intruding.House was very clean but the housekeepers didn't leave us TP or paper towels( as in contract), or notice drain problem in master bath. We did have to ask for them to be brought, along with a hair dryer. This was we gave the 4 stars.
Manager response:

We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we will work with our local team to add kitchen items and more storage for guest belongings.

I rented this for a visit to Arcata for my grandmother's 100th birthday. Perfect for 3 couples. Lots of space to lounging and eating. Beautiful deck that we didn't take advantage of due to the weather, but I did hike on the trails that are accessible directly through the backyard. Beautiful! Everything was nice and clean and comfortable. Didn't cook due to other meal plans, but kitchen seemed well-stocked. Enjoyed the coffee that was provided. Had a little confusion with the lock code, but property managers were very responsive and all was resolved prior to our arrival.

Fantastic property in terms of house and location. Unfortunately, there was a strong pet odor in the house. It smelled like a cat had sprayed at some point.
