Property description

Bayview Bungalow is centrally located, yet private, quiet, and cozy. Our property is a stand-alone, two bedroom home built in the 1940s, and recently renovated with contemporary tastes. The interior of our bungalow has a modern decor with an eclectic array of fine art and illustrations from the local area. The living room has a beautiful dining/conversation island made of local and exotic woods and surrounded by comfortable, bar-height chairs. A modern gas fireplace provides both ambiance and warmth for those cool nights (and some days!). A large screen television with cable TV and wireless internet will keep you entertained and connected. There is a full kitchen, stocked with the necessities should you opt to dine in. The two bedrooms have queen-sized beds with memory-foam mattresses, and the front bedroom has a television with cable TV. Our guests can enjoy the views of Arcata’s historic Plaza, Arcata Bay, and forested horizons from the expansive porch.

Car: Not Necessary

Bayview Bungalow’s location allows you to experience all that is wonderful about Arcata while leaving your car parked. You can easily stroll to shops, restaurants, movies, the Arcata Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary, or Redwood Park trails. Bicycle rentals are also available within a few blocks if you want to branch out a bit – Arcata is very bike-friendly. Within a few steps of the front door, Wildberries Marketplace has everything you could ask for in a grocery store and more: conventional and organic foods, juice and salad bars, scrumptious deli offerings, made-to-order sandwiches and ready-to-eat dinner specials, and a coffee/espresso bar.

Just minutes away by car, you can experience some of the exquisite natural features in the area - sandy beaches, wild rivers, coastal trails, and giant redwoods. Eureka’s historical jewel, Victorian-Era Old Town, graces Humboldt Bay’s waterfront with fine dining, shops, and bookstores just ten minutes’ drive to the south. Fifteen minutes north, Trinidad is a picture-perfect coastal village with a vintage lighthouse, the local fishing fleet moored in Trinidad Bay (and of course, fresh, locally-caught fish!), and our favorite wine tasting room - Moonstone Crossing, where our good friends Don and Sharon offer a fantastic selection of their award-winning wines.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I moved to Arcata from Oregon in 2011 after marrying my husband, Randy, who has lived here for over 30 years. I gave up my job as a flight attendant for a large airline company, and together we purchased this little house in 2012 and began the renovation process, which came to a close in spring, 2013. We are happy to offer our vacation rental to those whose pursuits of business or pleasure bring them to the redwood coast.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Bayview Bungalow is a free-standing, two bedroom home that offers an uncommon level of privacy and independence. A large, Craftsman-style porch overlooks the Plaza and Arcata Bay, and provides a sunny space for relaxing, dining, and people-watching. Although located in the vibrant heart of Arcata, the quiet privacy of the home’s interior and backyard offer a peaceful respite.
