“Terrific apartment in excellent location, very well maintained.”
Reviewed 10 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This apartment is upstairs from a law office in a refurbished house in an excellent location. The apartment is next to a large market, and near restaurants and a short walk to the central square in Arcata. The bedrooms and baths and kitchen are modernized and well-equipped. There is parking in the rear. Very nice place!

“Great place to stay in Arcata”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Accommodations were as described and very nice. Location was convenient. We felt safe walking to plaza and back at night. Other than some stains on the carpet going upstairs to the unit, the home was very clean and tastefully done. The only complaint we had was that the bathroom with the tub has a very low mirror hanging above the vanity. It should have been hung so an average person could see themselves in it. The lightly could have been moved to the sides of the mirror instead of above it. Other than that slight inconvenience, we highly recommend it!

Thank you T.S. for your 5 star review of Arcata Stay's Gateway Stay vacation rental. We appreciate you sharing your experience and are pleased that you enjoyed the lovely apartment and convenient location. We are looking into replacing the entrance carpet at the bottom of the stairs because soil can track in from outside, but we need to have the apartment un-occupied long enough to have the window to replace the carpet with another floor material. It has been booked solid with happy guests. Happy summer........Christy Laird for Arcata Stay

“absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in January 2015

as has been said, perfect downtown location, xlent parking, quite nicely redone and most comfortable inside; indeed, designer quality! can be a bit noisey due to street noise, especially around rush hour, but its close to all the action and you can walk to almost all of downtown.

would highly recommend.

“Fantastic, comfortable, well-equipped kitchen”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Great location, close to good grocer store, the plaza and shopping. Beds were very comfortable. The only glitch we had (somehow the water had been turned off for the unit!) was corrected within minutes of when we called to report it. I was very pleased with this rental.

Thanks C. for your kind words and 5 stars for Gateway Stay. I'm glad I was able to solve the mystery of the disappearing water within minutes. It is wonderful having Wildberries Marketplace just a few yards away from the vacation rental and the Plaza and Northtown commercial districts just a few short blocks walk away. Hope your week on the redwood coast was packed with great explorations and experiences.

Cheers and happy fall.........Christy for Arcata Stay

“Beautiful accommodations and really well laid out 2 bedroom bath combination”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The newly redone second floor is beautifully appointed. Living area and kitchen at the top of the stairs with bedroom to the left and right of the living area, each very spacious with their own bath, one a claw foot tub and the other a walk in shower. Everything is brand new. it will easily accommodate two separate couples or extended family. We are already looking to see if we can return this fall.

Looks like 5 stars again for Gateway Stay! Thanks for your thoughtful and descriptive review of our vacation rental. It is true, we did a complete reno on the unit in spring 2013, and it still is like new. It is ideal for couples traveling together or extended family needing their own separated spaces and ensuite baths. Did you enjoy the view out of the kitchen window of our ever changing Arcata Bay and sky? We look forward to your next visit in the fall. You can always check availability on line.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Gateway Stay was perfect for our family. There were 4 adults and 2 children and the place accommodated us just fine. The beds were very comfortable, the place spotless, and beautiful, and it had everything we needed. We all loved the place!! The location was perfect, close to many restaurants, grocery stores, and the college. I highly recommend Gateway Stay, if you are planning a trip to Arcata!

“Great property in a terrific location”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Unit was spacious, neat and clean with great attention to detail including supplied shampoo, body wash, cotton balls/q-tips, and robes. Easy walk to downtown square with great restaurants and an awesome Saturday morning farmer's market very close-by. Plenty of room for two adults and two teenagers and parking was very convenient. No negatives other than personal preference of not finding mattresses comfortable & would have been helpful to have a handrail on the stairway wall since one guest was in a walking boot.

Thanks for taking the time to post your Gateway Stay review. It is 5 stars again for this property. We are happy that you were pleased with our variety of thoughtful amenities and great central location. Sorry you had to travel with a foot boot though; hope recovery is happening for you. Mattresses are a personal preference and the ones in the vacation rental are just over a year old, so not worn out. Both are memory foam, which can take some getting used to if sleeper is used to a conventional mattress.

We hope we see you again.

Kind regards, Christy Laird, Arcata Stay Manager
