This property is amazing. However, a few things were missing such as kitchen staples like a cheese grater, sheet pan and basic seasonings. There is a big beautiful lawn- why not have Bocce Ball or Corn Hole games as an option. Also, there was a list of dates of when the gardener would be coming. The dates we were there was not listed but he did show up one morning. All of this being said it is still an amazing property. The deck and the Community Forest was my favorite.

We loved the location of this home in a beautiful secluded neighborhood with the Community Forest accessible right in the backyard. The house was roomy and comfortable for our family of 5. Deck in the backyard is nice to relax on in the afternoons. We cooked most of our meals in the well-stocked kitchen. TV had Netflix so we were able to access the programs we wanted. Beds were comfortable and linens and towels were provided. It was clear from all the pictures on the walls and knick-knacks that this was once (or still is) someone's personal home. Initially, it felt a little strange staying at what seemed to be someone's own home but after awhile, we got used to it and it no longer bothered us. Still, it might be worth considering removing some of the personal items if this is going to be used primarily as a rental home. We enjoyed our one week stay and would not hesitate to stay here again to visit the beautiful redwoods.
Manager response:
Hi, Lisa! Thank you for staying with us and leaving your review. We understand your initial discomfort with the photos and will suggest a change to the homeowner. We hope to see you again!

I really loved staying here. Our group was 2 couples and we had tons of space. We spent lots of time in the sunken living room as well as in the main TV room with the gas fireplace. Fireplace was easy to use. Master bedroom had tons of space (huge closet!) and a very roomy attached bathroom. The yard and deck were also really big and nice -- would've spent quite a lot of time out there if it had been a little warmer outside. We loved walking on the network of trails behind the house, and Safeway was a 5-minute drive away for groceries -- super convenient. All in all, we had a great stay and would definitely return!

We really enjoyed our stay here! Very peaceful and quiet. The house is very warm and inviting. It’s easy to cook and hang out. And great hiking in this area. We also really enjoyed working with Vacasa! The house was spotless and they responded quickly to any questions we had. And check in was easy.
Thanks again

Very clean, comfortable and homey. With the Redwoods in your backyard that leads right into a hiking trail and a huge wrap around deck, hiking is just a few feet away. Amazing house in an even more amazing location at a very reasonable price point. Would highly recommend anyone stay here.

Loved the property and the location. Spacious living area, beautiful deck, pretty landscaping, lots of board games and the kitchen had all we needed. You can access the forest trails from the backyard. Short drive to the beaches and Redwood parks. We had a very relaxing time there.

Beautiful neighborhood! On a QUIET culdesac. Best part of this home is it sits RIGHT on a trail head that you can take to HSU campus. I actually asked the gardener if the owner is looking to sell, I LOVED this home! We felt safe, kids ran amuck in the woods and in the yard. The yard has the BIGGEST tree stump I have ever seen. Fully stoked, we needed nothing. HIGHLY recommend, this will be our home base while we come up to shop for a rental of our own.

Perfectly presented home with a large deck to enjoy the all day sun. Basketball hoop & great lawn for sport for young & old. Excellent community trails straight out the backyard. Perfect stay, exactly what we needed! Thank you!

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.
. Oct 2018
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.
. May 2018
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay at the Location very much.
We certainly will recommend it.

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.
