Pacific House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

This is a gem. An exquisite old-rose garden cascades in front of your 11 foot, floor-to-ceiling bow window in the master bedroom. A wall of French doors opens onto a large deck that's perfect for catching the sun or sipping wine. Enjoy the outdoor shower and cedar hot tub. Quiet. Off the street, but right in the middle of charming downtown Arcata.

Stroll two blocks to the Humboldt State University campus. The Redwood Community Forest is around the corner and you can explore beneath the ancient old-growth redwoods. Check out Arcata's bustling small-town plaza with a local artists' gallery, Saturday Farmers' market, unbeatable French cafe and great restaurants featuring local, organic cuisine. And, by the way, we're a short drive to the ocean and miles of deserted beaches, too. Sound like a relaxing hide away? You have found THE magic spot.

This home is behind a locked gate. It's has a fully fenced yard and a washer/drier. Wi-Fi. No TV. It has a queen bed in the master plus a twin mattress in the master nook that can sleep one. The nook is special. You're right in the roses! There is a guest room with a queen bed. There is one full bath inside the house, plus the very private outdoor shower by the hot tub.

We welcome you. Peace, quiet and pure relaxation can be yours here at this virtual spa.

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:

This place is very charming, clean, and quiet. The only setbacks are no TV (intentional by owner), and confusing access (we arrived at night and definitely got a bit lost). Still though, great place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review and feedback. We do make it clear in the listing that there is no TV and our driving directions are quite clean and to not use GPS to find the entrance. Phone calls to management would certainly help out! We really don't mind helping out in the dark!

Reviewer Comments:

We loved this cozy house near HSU. The garden setting makes it feel very remote but you're close to HSU and the plaza. It was the perfect spot for the three of us. Five people might be a little cramped as the 5th bed is in the master bedroom window and there isn't a lot of seating.

Reviewer Comments:

The Magic Garden was delightful! It was even better than depicted in the property description. Very clean, kitchen was well appointed, everything clearly labeled, welcome book very complete. We enjoyed reading about the history of some of the artifacts in the home. The garden is beautiful and very private. The only disappointment was that the laundry facilities were not operational.

Owner's Response: Hi Beth, thanks for the great review! Magic Garden is a wonderful spot. I noticed you booked while the washer/dryer were still in use but unfortunately some plumbing issues have caused us to remove them indefinitely until we can get that resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you received my email about this before your arrival. Thank you for choosing Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals and hope to see you again!

Reviewer Comments:

Really nice back yard. House is lacking in a real living room. There's a couch in the kitchen. Also no television, so that's worth noting. Finally, it feels less than private, as the owner lives on site and makes sure to peek at you over the fence and show up unannounced.

Owner's Response: Hi Robert, Thanks for appreciating the nice back yard. We do have photos of the entire property that accurately depict the lay out and we do note there is no television. There is plenty of WIFI for streaming your favorite channels. The owners don't live on site, but you may have experienced was the maintenance man. The properties on both sides of the fence are all on the same parcel and probably saw his head bobbing up and down as he was doing his work. Our apologies if you felt he was peeking over the fence. To all guests, remember, calls to management and reservations are always welcome with questions before booking and occurrences during your stay! We want all guests to have the best experience while they are staying with us here at Magic Garden or any of our properties with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals!

Reviewer Comments:

The old stove was leaking gas, we opened all the windows all night long. Non of the windows in the master had covers on them, compleat exposure and the excuse that " as the owner I don't like being exposed so though the Windows have no covers trust me I made sure...." I did not trust her or her judgement based off the hippie anti-America capitalist books they had but seem not to mind charging an overrated price for their was not fun staying there no tv no wifi nada

Owner's Response: Sorry you hated the place. Everyone else loves it. There is WIFI. We advertise no TV. A pilot light went out on the commercial stove and a call to management would have fixed that immediately. We provide privacy screens for those that don't feel comfortable with the open nature of the bedroom looking out into the rose gardens.
