About the Property

Private apartment with deluxe bath - a perfect base for Northcoast adventures!

This is a pretty and private garden apartment, which comfortably accommodates one or two people. The space has a lovely tile bathroom, with a soaking tub and a double shower built for sharing. Inside you have a well equipped kitchenette, which tidies away behind closed doors, or you can barbeque outside in the garden patio area. This studio comprises part of a larger high end residence, but is fully self contained with it's own private entrance and a designated parking space.

Bayside is a sweet Arcata neighborhood with a semi-rural feel, just two miles from the very center of Arcata and Humboldt State University, and seven from downtown Eureka.

The property has panoramic views over Humboldt Bay and marsh areas that are part of the Pacific flyway for many kinds of migratory birds. Depending on the season, the sound of cows in the fields is complemented by the sounds of thousands of wild geese coming and going; frogs chorusing; coyotes yipping.

There is a delightful coffee house at the corner, or head into Arcata or Eureka to find a nice range of local restaurants. The closest supermarket is a mile away, but venture a mile further to find two remarkably well stocked natural foods supermarkets in downtown Arcata. Alternatively, stock up at one of the many local farmers markets - especially Saturdays on the Arcata Plaza - which offer great local produce and fun people watching. We also have an organic community farm with farm stand about a 1/4 mile down the road.

Car: Recommended

If you're up for an adventure, you can hike and mountain bike to your heart's content along miles of trails in the the Arcata community forest (2350 acres) or stay on flatter ground in the Arcata Bottoms and along the Hammond Trail.

A little further afield, explore majestic old growth redwood forests and beautiful seascapes among the many stunning National and State Parks that Humboldt and Del Norte counties have on offer.

Enjoy the temperate coastal weather or head a little inland for some serious sun and great river swimming. In fact, there are a terrific range of scenic rivers to be found in all directions, offering swimming, rafting and paddling opportunities for all skill levels.

Twenty minutes north is the picturesque fishing village of Trinidad with beautiful rocky coves and beaches to explore plus regular sightings of seals, sea lions and whales (in season). Kayak the myriad lagoons and sloughs in the area to get up close and personal with birds, otters and elk.

For a more cosmopolitan adventure, Eureka and Ferndale are brimming with gorgeous Victorian architecture; enjoy the evening Art walks held monthly in a range of local towns; or check out the local theatre, music and other performing arts offerings.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I grew up in Brisbane, Australia, but have been based in Humboldt County, California, for most of the last twenty plus years. I first left Australia as a 17 year old exchange student to Mexico for a year, and have since traveled quite a bit. One way or another, that first overseas adventure played a big part in me spending most of my adult life on the other side of the world from where I started. My husband, Don, is originally from Florida, but has been in Humboldt County since the early 1970s. He's a general building contractor by trade, but these days we mostly work together on our collection of rental properties. We love remodeling and fixing places up and we have a lot of fun creating sweet places for people to live and stay. Most of our rentals are regular longer term tenancies, but we are considering opening a hostel/guesthouse in Arcata, so we are excited to be offering short stay options as well as a fun way to transition toward providing more traveler and visitor accommodations. We have two girls who are 11 and 13, and a flock of backyard chickens. We are also in the process of setting up a big veggie garden and planting more fruit trees. We love to cook together, drink a little red wine, mountain bike in the forest, and run away to the beach or the mountains when we can wrestle our various projects into submission. It's a good life and a lovely place to live (and visit!).
