      Indeed a magic garden

      From the moment we arrived at the gate, it was like walking into an enchanted forest. You have to be there to experience the wonderful things this house has to offer. We will definitely come back. Property manager was kind enough to leave us with a survival kit before the power was out. I have never stayed in a place like this. Truely awesome experience.

      5/5 Excellent

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      Charming, warm and inviting! Perfectly comfortable for our three person family but could accommodate a couple more easily. The windows and outside gardens make this property truly valuable. Soaking in the Japanese tub was a treat at the end of the day as well. We would definitely stay again.

        Beautiful lush oasis with all the comforts

        I can't say enough good things about this property. It's beautiful, centrally located, quiet, and the beds are insanely cozy. The pictures don't do justice to the garden and private hot tub area. Perfect for relaxing and stargazing on a clear night. My son goes to Humboldt, and this will be my new go-to place to stay. Thank you, Redwood Coast Properties!

            Beautiful and Peaceful

            We really enjoyed staying at the home while bringing our daughter up to HSU. It was within walking distance to the school and community forest. It was peaceful and serene. We will definitely stay here again!
