Very cozy place, well maintained and comfortable. Would consider staying there again

Close to town, yet you feel a world away in the forest. Better than the pictures. Perfect for a little get-away.
Suzanne G. May 2022
The house was very clean and modern. A quiet location with forest views. Especially liked the electric fireplace and minimalist decor. Not suitable for a senior because of step steps up to main door.
Darlene S. May 2022
Very comfortable, had the feel of a cabin in the woods!
Jennifer H. Feb 2022
Wonderful location for visiting Cal Poly Humboldt. Beautiful area and lovely to hear the bells of the campus. The beds are nice and comfy and the couches perfect to curl up on and watch tv or read. Walking trails nearby lead you to the campus or just to stroll around. Super clean. Loved the reading materials left to learn more about the history of the area.

Easy check in. Very comfortable.
Cecelia R. Aug 2021
Stayed a few nights to hike at Prarie Creek. The condo is an older unit that is roomy and quiet. The carpet is newer, but everything else is tired and worn, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. Possibly the most uncomfortable sofa ever!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this feedback, Cecelia. To enhance the comfort of our guests, all of the living room furnishings have been newly updated. New kitchenware, including a J.A. Henckels knife block has also been added. We hope you'll come back again to admire the improvements!

Clean home with clean bedding and comfortable beds. The BBQ is not the one in the photo and is much smaller than the one pictured, so we had to change our plans for a Father’s Day dinner. Disappointing. Bring your own knife if you plan to cook.
There’s a little dog that barks nonstop next door, so as long as you are out and about during the day and not planning to relax at the townhouse, you should be fine.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Karen. We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. A new set of J.A. Henckels knives has been added to the home. We are also working with local law enforcement to address the noise from the neighbor's dog. Signage will be placed in the home with instructions to call our local manager should there be any disruptions, and they will make sure that there are no ongoing issues for our guests. We hope to have another opportunity to host you!

Quiet location close to town and HSU.
Joel Y. Nov 2020
This was a super cozy home away from home. Great location and amenities! Would stay again in a heartbeat!
Marcela L. Oct 2020
The whole house was impeccable. Set up in a very quiet area. The small deck is beautiful because it is almost surrounded by trees. Great to have a drink, read, and observe the serenity of the area. According to my daughter who lives in Arcata this is a neighborhood where students live. We don’t give it 5 stars because it was very easy to hear the downstairs neighbors and also because we couldn’t find if there was a hostess to help when we had problems with the tv. Besides that it is a great apartment to spend a few days
Manager response:
Hi, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your feedback we will make our contact information more visible in the unit. You can always reach us 24/7! Vacasa

The location was great as we wanted to mainly birdwatch and the surrounding area was perfect. The house was quite comfortable and mostly met our needs.
Barbara S. Aug 2020
Just up the road from this townhouse, there's a trail through the beautiful redwood forest leading straight to campus. We were there to take our son to college, so we loved being able to hike there. The house is also comfortable with good beds and plenty of seating in the living room (though rattan wouldn't be my choice). Nice touches include soft towels, good-quality hand soap in the kitchen and bathroom, and soap for the dishwasher, clothes washer, etc. This is a simple, good-quality accommodation that is very convenient to HSU.
Nicole S. Jul 2020
It was nice and quiet and clean. We were surprised that someone was living downstairs. We hoped that we didn’t bother him because we have kids. Otherwise, it was great.
Renalyn A. Jun 2020
It could use some newer kitchen utensils. The pots and pans are very old and scratched. Location was nice and quiet. It’s relaxing to stare at the redwood trees from the balcony.
Manager response:
Hi! Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed this beautiful home! Since your stay, the homeowners have replaced the pots and pans! We do hope that we see you again in the future!
Uri G. Jun 2020
Everything about this house was great. We honeymooned here and had a great time.

My only reservation is that the post claims you won't be interacting with other guests but there is a tenant below. The floor in the master bedroom is thin there is no privacy in that room. You can hear Everything.

I traveled up North with my 2 young children. The location and condo was amazing! It has everything we needed and the deck was an added bonus with an amazing view! I would definitely rent it again!
carol k. Feb 2020
The townhouse gives you the feeling of being in the forest outside the city, yet is so convenient and close to downtown Arcata and all it has to offer. We have made this our home when visiting, and hope to use the outdoor deck and BBQ when it warms up. the neighbors are quiet and whats is charming is you can hear the clock strikes on the hour from the university in the distance. The kitchen is well supplied and the laundry is easy to use. The double sinks and drawers in the bathroom make it easy to spread out and there are plenty of blanket and pillows for the comfortable beds. It is also nice having a tv in each bedroom.
Pam C. Jan 2020
We enjoyed the spaciousness of this townhouse. Both bedrooms are of a generous size and the bathroom is too. Having a washer and dryer in the unit also makes me happy!

The townhouse is a beautiful place to stay.This rental is a gorgeous home with everything you need to feel at home. Lots of new upgrades since our last stay. Not that you have time for WiFi and cable because there is so much to do up there. We fished, hiked, and attended the annual Oyster festival. Great restaurants close by too.
. May 2018
We've stayed in dozens and dozens of airbnb's and we also did 26 home exchanges, we have experience with vacation places. This townhouse was simply very well managed. It's clean, well decorated, solid kitchen, both beds were quiet comfortable. There are downstairs neighbors who were helpful and quiet. Everything worked that needed to. We found the whole space enjoyable. The house is built into a hillside, the driveway is short and steep and it isn't a great place to walk but the house itself works well.
. May 2018

We had 4 people stay here and it was a really comfortable place with a great kitchen. They had some complimentary coffee and some cookies for us. THe kitchen had all pots and pans, baking things, toaster, microwave and everything. We would definitely come back again.
