  • We really enjoyed our stay! The place was amazing with spectacular views. Dana was a wonderful host and ensured that our stay was a pleasant one. I am always looking for escapes from the city a few times a year and this is one I will look to again. Thanks Dana!!!

  • The Figueiredo's are a warm and welcoming couple who offered great advice on places to eat and hike. The cottage was clean and comfortably furnished with two giant picture windows looking out on to the deck and fantastic views of the large and beautiful property. You are tucked away up on a hill overlooking Arcata and the water with nearby walks in the redwoods/forest. The Figueiredo's live on the property but you have a lot of privacy. We were up in the area for a potential job prospect and Dana was helpful and flexible in accommodating my changing schedule and our dogs who were along for the ride. I would definitely come back. The place is a short drive from downtown Arcata, so if you want something central/walking distance, look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a relaxing getaway with lovely hosts, this place is great.

  • Dana & David were perfect hosts - gracious, friendly and communicative, while also giving us plenty of space to enjoy this truly awesome cottage. There were some significant issues trying to make the reservation with airbnb equipment/staff, but Dana was dedicated and resourceful to completing the process as smoothly as possible.

  • This is a lovely place to stay near the Redwoods. Dana and David are extremely kind and generous. When I arrived, I was in need of some serious down time in the midst of an exhausting drive across the States. They were very respectful of my space and also compassionate. These hosts seem like people who can meet you where you're at, which is so important! The location close to the Arcata Community Forest (hauntingly beautiful public trails), the Mad River Beach and downtown Arcata and Eureka. It is pretty foggy/misty during the fall/winter months (I guess Humboldt County is known for that), but still beautiful. I would recommend it for couples or friends who want to take shorter hiking trips in the surrounding area. The bed is huge and comfortable, and the kitchen is well-stocked! I felt lucky to get to stay in this haven on such short notice.

    Thank you Dana and David for your warm hearts and hospitality!

  • What a lovely place! Dana was a wonderful hostess. She made sure we could find the place and gave us great recommendations for meals out. Japhy's and Renata's were our favorites. The bed was comfortable, plenty of linens and things. The best sunrise and sunset view from the huge windows overlooking the porch. And don't miss the Arcata Community Park. Absolutely a must see! Only thing I would add to my stay is more days. Can't wait to return!!

  • This place is surreal! Hidden in the hills overlooking Arcata, the cottage has large windows and a really nice deck to enjoy the amazing view of the ocean.
    The garden has tons of fresh veggies and Dana kindly allowed us to pick stuff from it (tomatoes, salad, raspberries!). We also got to see a few deers walking around in the meadow just in front of the deck. The place feels really secluded and peaceful.
    If you want a place to explore the Redwoods, don't look further this place is the one! I would come back anytime :)

  • Beautiful, quiet cottage with amazing views. It's hard not to relax the moment you walk in the door. Dana and her husband were great, especially since this was our first Airbnb experience. Fresh eggs from the hens and vegetables from the garden were an added bonus! Overall, we could not have had a better time.

  • My wife and I stayed here for my wife's daughter's graduation from HSU. The location is awesome .... high up among the redwood trees overlooking Arcata and the Pacific coast. Quiet, clean and comfortable. Some very positive notes, my wife was having back pain and our hosts graciously allowed her to use the hot-tub at their private residence right next door. Fresh eggs each day from the chickens, spinach and lettuce and roses from the garden, all just outside the door. Watching the deer in the meadow as we drank our morning coffee and enjoyed the eggs.

    A downside was we were not forewarned that we shouldn't drink the water as they operate on an "old well." That meant getting our own supply of bottled water. The 3 mile drive into Arcata was a bit of a drawback as most of our activities were in town.

    Not perfect but very manageable.

  • Dana and David's Quiet Garden Cottage literally does have awesome views! The cottage is nestled in the hills of Arcata and has impressive views overlooking the town and surrounding area.

    We stayed there as a base to see some of the Redwood forests and explore Arcata and loved our little cottage getaway. Also, the bed is super comfortable (and large!).

    The cottage itself is very private, even though David and Dana are just next door. They are both very friendly and offered us some helpful travel tips.

    Definitely recommend this to anyone traveling in the area.

  • We loved staying here! Beautiful views, comfortable, very clean and well appointed. We stayed in a lot - cooking, reading, drawing. Dana a David were great hosts too. Everything A+!
