Stayed here out of necessity
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My wife and I wanted to spend a few days in the Arcata area with our 2 kids. There were very few options for places to stay. The place was very clean maintained inside. The outside had a nice deck. However, half of the yard was essentially a junkyard. There was caution tape up and we were told to stay on our side of the yard and to not cross the caution tape for our own safety. There was broken down heavy machinery and cut branches in huge piles. The management company was very professional and the whole transaction went smoothly. We did feel that it was a bit much to charge a $1000 deposit. Even though we did get it all back within 2 weeks. With the billing cycle of our credit card though we ended up with an extra $1000 dollar charge on one cycle that we had to pay and then the next billing cycle we had a $1000 credit. I guess it comes down to supply and demand. There is very little supply in this area and rentals can charge very high rates and ask for huge deposits. The place is as advertised and our stay went smoothly. For the amount we paid, we were hoping for a little more value for our money.
