Great place to stay with dogs

  • 4 of 5

I did send a review, guess it went to the wrong place. We enjoyed staying there with the big yard for our dogs to play in. It was very nice and clean and comfortable.

We plan to stay there again when we come to Eurika again.

Enjoy the cool artwork and lovely furniture

  • 5 of 5

Garden Retreat is a nice, older home that is quite comfortable and pleasant. It had lovely furniture and a mix of original and non-original art throughout. The two leather sofas were comfy and the kitchen is big. The house is in a residential neighborhood (on a somewhat noisy street until late evening) and is easy to find and conveniently located to Eureka retail and restaurants. It was spotlessly clean and the owner, Heidi, provided nice towels.

This house may not be suitable for those with mobility problems as there are steps to get into the house and the bath/shower combo requires climbing over the side of the tub. The beds were comfortable but the double mattresses were both really tall so you do literally

"climb into bed."

Heidi was very cooperative even offered to drive over with light bulbs when we discovered one that was burned out. We'd happily rent from her again.

Awesome, kid-friendly home right in the middle of Eureka

  • 5 of 5

This property was just as described. It is a well maintained older home with a lot of character. The owner went above and beyond with the high quality decorations and furnishings. It is centrally located about 1 minute from the 101, 10 minutes from Samoa beach, and about 8 minutes from Winco. Heidi was very accommodating and friendly, and she responded quickly to our inquiries. We will hopefully be staying here again soon!

Nice house for a family group

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time and I would have given it 5 stars except for a couple of issues. The house has one main bathroom with a broken fan (a second bathroom is inconveniently located in the back of the converted garage). The fan should be fixed as you cannot open a window in the bathroom. The other issue was that the freezer drawer on bottom of the refrigerator needs a new seal. Overnight the freezer loads up with frost and it drops it on the floor when opened during the day. Other than these two items, the house was perfect.

Comfortable, spacious, and central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights recently and found the house to be very spacious and comfortable. The furniture and kitchen items (cookware, dishes, etc) appear to be all new and barely used. The beds are especially comfortable - great mattresses. Much of the house seems to have been newly remodeled and seems brand new. Even appliances seem to be brand new. We had a minor plumbing issue on a Sat. morning and called the owner, who sent a plumber over within a couple of hours to take care of the problem, which was great. The location is central Eureka - convenient to everything yet not right on 101.

Our family was very comfortable here and we were very happy with our choice. Highly recommended -- great house!!
