5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Hi and thanks for your review! I just reread the driving directions and I see where it says to exit on 14th Street if coming from 101N. I'm sorry you got lost, you can always call the property manager in that event for help, but please be advised you do need to follow the driving directions to find the property as GPS won't work. Again, sorry for the confusion and I really appreciate taking time to leave a review and feedback!

Perfect retreat

Review by Lisa H.
Our family of four stayed here for a wedding. We walked to a Crabs game, the farmers market, dinner and to the city redwood park. The space was clean, bright and we loved the feel of the outdoors all around us. I would definitely come back!

Our Arcata Bungalow

Review by Robin C.
We had a lovely time in this Arcata bungalow. We were there to have Thanksgiving with our daughter and son-in-law who live in Eureka and it was a perfect place to make and share a family meal. The garden was beautiful and quiet. I would have appreciated curtains in the master bedroom - not for privacy because I don't think we were overlooked at all - but to keep the light out the morning. Also I did not realize until we arrived that the master bedroom does not have a door that separates it from the living room area. THe oven did smoke on two occasions and the smoke alarm went off. It was so high up on the ceiling that it was impossible to reach it but we opened the windows and door and eventually it stopped. THe location, next to the community forest was perfect for an afternoon walk through the redwoods - that was magical.

Manager Response:
Thank you for your review of Magic Garden, we love getting feedback from guests. I'm very sorry to hear the oven set off the smoke detector, I will take a look at that today, so thank you for the feedback. There are screens that we keep in the master closet to filter some of the light in the master bedroom, I will add a mention in the house instructions online for guests to see and hopefully use so they can have a nice sleep in on vacation! Lots of privacy, and such a beautiful garden and Japanese style soaking tub, please come back in the summer to enjoy all the flowers in bloom! Thanks again for your review, we are very appreciatve. Please look us up at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals when planning your next trip to the North Coast!

The Magic Garden cottage will give you goosebumps!

Review by Erin B.
I am almost reluctant to share how special this rental is, because I want to make sure I can stay here again! We have been renting vacation rentals for over 25 years, and I can't think of a more beautifully appointed home that we have ever stayed in. Every detail is thoughtful and taken care of- extra blankets and towels, spotless and organized, information about the area, excellent communication throughout the process, paper products and cooking equipment- it's all there. We stayed while visiting our niece who is a freshman at HSU and hope to make the Magic Garden cottage our go to place to stay for the next four years. We loved Arcata and the surrounding areas and can't wait to come back. We had excellent meals downtown and in Eureka, and especially loved just chilling and relaxing in the cottage. Blown away by the tranquil beauty of this home, thank you for everything!

Gorgeous and comfortable rental

Review by
We loved the location and all of the amenities of this home. It was cozy, beautifully decorated, and very well-appointed. We had a marvelous time exploring the beautiful area and then coming back to relax and unwind in this beautiful space. We will most definitely look into staying here again, the next time we make a visit to the north coast.

Thank you! Magic Garden is just that, MAGIC. Folks Just love it and keep coming back to it. It's a real favorite and so nice to just be there. See you next time!

Magic can be found in the most unlikely of places.

Review by michael m.
Northern California has its charm for sure but I never expected to find a gem like this outside the redwood forests. The “Magic Garden” is a part of a collection of small homes. Each one appeared to have its own private entrance and the fences and foliage provide a unique privacy given the shared lot. We never saw our neighbors though we knew we had them. The master bedroom offers an amazing open view to the back gardens. There are no blinds so the sun is your indirect alarm clock if you wish. 2 Chinese blinds are provided to give an added sense of privacy or shade depending your comfort level. We didn’t use them as again, you are tucked away nicely. The closet is huge so you can hide your luggage away and feel moved in vs. tripping over it. The kitchen and living room is shared but spacious and useful. Meals of any kind can be prepared and served in the dining area without feeling cramped. The TV was a puzzle, but luckily a little digging for the manual and trial and error with the oversimplified remote allowed our boys some unwinding from long hikes in the forest. The second bedroom was comfy and had a nice closet. The one bathroom was well stocked with towels and spacious enough for two people to get ready at the same time. The Asian decorative accents really set this unique architecture apart from other properties we have stayed at. The actual front door is 100 years old from East Timor. I treated like a piece of art it is. I enjoyed looking at it, but didn’t dare touch it. The contemporary entrance is through the master bedroom. Statues and old Asian pillars adorn the space and added a sense of calm I needed this getaway. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the patio and our evenings in the Japanese soaking tub. The Magic Garden photos tell the story but they don’t capture the heart. I would definitely recommend this for couples, honeymooners, and spiritual beings who come for the redwoods but want something more. Sp

Wow, thank you so much for your amazing and thoughtful review! What a delight, I'm so happy you loved this property as much as you describe. I also think this property is something special, you feel like you in your own private oasis, and yet you are walking distance to downtown Arcata. The amazing variety of flowers, including many varieties of roses, and the Japanese soaking tub all contribute to this sense being surrounded by beauty and tranquility. We hope you come back soon, and please just give us a call in the future if you are having trouble with anything, I'm always happy to help figure out remotes, TV's, etc..Thanks, and we look forward to your return to Magic Gardens!

Thanks so much for taking a moment to leave a review. We love Magic Garden, it has beautiful gardens, with a variety of roses to enjoy out of the deck, as well as through the glass bedroom doors when awaking each morning. The Japanese soaking tub on the back deck is heavenly, just sitting under the stars, surrounded by fragrant roses every evening. What a fabulous property, and we look forward to your return.

We loved everything about this property. It was a wonderful basecamp for our time visiting the Redwoods with our two teen daughters. The gardens were gorgeous and the furnishings lovely. What a treat!

A northern California Jewel

Review by stephanie f.
My mother and I stayed in this exotic but serene space in April. The "secret garden" like atmosphere, the outdoor shower and soaking tube, and the Asian accents indoors completely won me over. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It was clean, bright, snug, and had comfortable beds. My only minor complaint was lack of any type of creamer for coffee the first morning.
