The space
A great "home-away-from-home" for parents visiting HSU students, couples getting away for a taste of a bustling small town, or as a long term executive rental. This home features new bleached plank flooring, a brand new queen sized memory foam mattress for a great night's sleep. Second bedroom includes two new and comfortable single beds. The living room features a new king sized memory foam day bed. Enjoy sunny days on our new spacious cedar outdoor deck. The house features many large windows including a sliding glass door accessing the outdoor deck. New paint, recessed lighting and all new furnishings including a few turn of the century antiques. This house will be a comfortable home base for all your Humboldt County excursions.
Our outdoor deck is a great place to schedule a private massage. Kelly, our massage therapist, will strive to accommodate your needs. Ask about pricing.

Guest access
Guests will have access to entire house, the outdoor deck and back yard garden area.

If you would like to schedule a massage on your private outdoor deck, just let us know and Kelly, our massage therapist, will be delighted to "make a house call".

Other things to note
Arcata is a unique place in that it is a small town of less than 20,000 people, yet it boasts a major university, a world class food and brewery scene, and spectacular natural resources including the Redwood Forest with many hiking trails, the Marsh lands popular with bird watchers, the Humboldt/Arcata Bay for naturalists and water sports, the town square with a cast of characters reminiscent of a John Steinbeck novel.
All of this, and more, make Arcata a one of kind destination.

My wife, Isabel and I and our adult daughters currently split our time between our homes in Arcata and nearby Eureka. The university town of Arcata offers access to the majestic Redwoods, Humboldt Bay, great food and breweries, friendly people and a great arts community. Over the years we have lived in wonderful places including Sedona, Kauai, San Diego, and Pasadena. We consider Humboldt County to be our latest great adventure! After 30 years of managing luxury hotels, when we travel we stay exclusively at Airbnb properties around the world to experience local culture at its best! We have had many memorable experiences in great places like Rekjavik, Heidelberg, Frankfurt, Augsburg, Salzburg, Vienna, Florence, Venice, Budapest and Prague, all while staying at Airbnb properties. We try to take some of the best ideas from our travels and offer them at Kelly's Arcata Get Away, hoping to provide our guests with a comfortable and memorable visit. Incidentally, we both have Gluten Free diets so we can assist with any GF needs.
