vacation rental description

Arcata City Pied-a-Terre

Let this be your city home-away-from-home or, as the French call it, your  “pied-a-terre”. 

Arcata City Pied-A-Terre is a lovely, comfortable, fully furnished 1400 square foot city flat that sleeps up to six guests with two bedrooms (one Cal King and one Queen bed), and one full bath with tub and shower. The modern, fully-furnished and well-appointed flat is located on the second floor of the 3 Foods Cafe building, in a quiet neighborhood, yet only two blocks from the Arcata Plaza.

The apartment was built in the 1950’s by a local lumberman.  It has an extra large blonde-wood paneled living room opening out into a lovely dining room with bamboo dining set, built-in blonde-wood sideboard. The walls in both the living and dining rooms are hung with charming 1930's vintage Hawaiian posters. The kitchen has the original red Formica counter tops and real wood honey-colored cabinets, and 30's vintage food and wine posters. Three bedrooms, each with their own distinctive decorative styles, provide comfort and fun for a good night's sleep. The apartment sports a charming front porch with a wrought-iron mosaic bistro set overlooking the neighborhood, perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning. We even have a large laundry room with washer and dryer, and a utility sink.  Entrance safety and convenience is provided by a security door at the bottom of the stairs.

Sorry, no pets or smoking are allowed in the apartment, porch or stairs.

Much care has been taken to provide this spacious clean city flat with a feel of ease and relaxation, and has everything you need for the perfect vacation.

Please be reminded that the city flat is on the 2nd floor and must be reached by climbing a flight of stairs.

Another fabulous time in Arcata!

Review submitted: January 6, 2014   Date of arrival: November 30, 2013

My family & I have stayed here several times now...The decor is beautiful & the feeling is homey. My children range in age from 6 to 20 & we all just love it! I also like that there is something for all of us to do within walking distance.

Arcata Flat

Review submitted: December 27, 2013   Date of arrival: November 30, 2013

We stayed in the flat for a month while in town for a business project. From the very first contact, the owner was extremely responsive and helpful, including suggestions of parks and activities for our toddler. The flat is very comfortable and feels like a home, rather than just a generic rental. The location is ideal - walking distance to the plaza, grocery store, etc., but very easy access to the freeway and no problems with parking. Barbara and Jim made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We had a wonderful time and look forward to an excuse to return!

Owners response: We are always so thrilled that our long-term guests find the flat so comfortable, attractive, convenient, and homey. That's exactly what we strive for.

Arcata get away

Review submitted: November 30, 2013   Date of arrival: October 16, 2013

This flat is spotless and well-maintained by the owners who are very polite, accommodating and try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. You are walking distance to practically everything you would want to do in Arcata so plan on parking the car and hitting the streets by foot. Our stay was wonderful and we are returning in May and look forward to our visit to the flat and the surrounding area.
