  • What a wonderful home - spectacular view of the bay from within and extending to the front deck; beautifully appointed kitchen; luxurious accommodations all around. Better in person than the pictures!! It was the perfect place for us and our adult son - lots of privacy, yet a great opportunity to create new memories. Super location - walking distance to excellent restaurants. We are looking forward to staying again. This is an amazing home and North Star Vacation Rentals goes above and beyond - wonderful hosts who are truly accommodating.
  • This house is that rare find which is actually even better than its description. We loved everything about it: the spacious layout, the charming front porch, the dining room with a view, the beautiful and well-appointed kitchen, the original artwork, and the tasteful (and comfortable!) furnishings.
  • We all were so impressed with this warm and welcoming house. Jim is an such an excellent communicator who was very easy to work with and followed up on everything! The house is absolutely inviting, tastefully decorated, ultra-clean, and every detail exceeded our expectations! The location was ideal, being a quite neighborhood and the view was spectacular. The vistas changed throughout the day as the light moved across the valley. The Bayview Heights Bungalow was the highlight of our trip in the Arcata area. We so appreciated this remarkable home as well as the top of the line kitchen, furniture and bathrooms, everything was tasteful, warm and inviting. Yes, the entire experience was superb and we highly recommend it!
  • Visited Arcata and northern California in late July for family vacation...a wonderful trip highlighted by our accommodations at Bayview Heights Bungalow. The location was ideal for visiting the Redwoods Parks and the northern California coast. Additionally, the home is conveniently located close to restaurants, markets, shopping, and Humboldt State University. But what sets this home apart is the quality and tasteful remodel of this charming Craftsman style house. Fine furnishings and attention to detail abound. The kitchen is fully equipped to please chefs of all levels from the quality knives to the KitchenAid mixer. Lovely bay views from the dining room table make morning coffee a real pleasure. All this plus a gracious host puts this home at the top of the list....highly recommend.
  • This was our first experience with VRBO and it was perfect! Our hosts made everything so comfortable and easy. The house was even better than expected. Details were meticulous and all the appliance and kitchen utensils were new and clean. So relaxing. It was in a perfect location as we were here to see our son play for the Humboldt Crabs. Thank you so much Jim for making this a memorable stay and we look forward to renting this again soon. We would highly recommend this property to anyone.
