vacation rental description

Situated on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Coast, our spacious and charming 3-bedroom, 2-bath home features ocean views from every west facing window, a stone fireplace and a lovely perennial garden with a deck in front.  Located in the coveted Big Lagoon area of Trinidad, Patrick's Point can be seen out the front window.  Our guest house sleeps 6 (3 queen beds) and has everything you need for the perfect vacation.    Much care has been taken to provide this spacious, clean house with a feel of ease and relaxation.  One way to describe our guest house is "Mad Men goes to the beach".  Our house was built in the late 60's and we have worked hard to maintain that era's design esthetic.  We have left many of the original features including lighting, wallpaper, and furnishings, while keeping the clean comforts and amenities of today.

It is only a few minutes walk to pristine Agate Beach nd Big Lagoon itself.  We're located only five minutes north of Trinidad, 35 minutes north of Eureka, 45 minutes south of Redwood National Park, and 15 minutes north of the Eureka/Arcata Airport.  Our home provides seclusion and quiet.  Listen to the soothing sounds of the waves while watching a spectacular sunset over the ocean and perennial garden.  Big Lagoon is a fascinating and important resting and feeding site for thousands of birds and other wildlife, such as river otters.  One can often see the otters and their pups feeding at sunset near the Big Lagoon boat launch.  Kayaking, canoeing, and fishing are some of the activities one can enjoy at Big Lagoon.  Agate and driftwood hunting on Agate Beach is a favorite pastime for guests, as is hiking on the beach, or picnicking at Big Lagoon.  At the house whale watching out the front window is an exciting pasttime.  Also, on clear nights, one can see the night sky filled with stars rising and setting like the sun out the front windows.

traveler reviews for this trinidad house rental

Relaxing and great location close to beach

Review submitted: March 27, 2014   Date of arrival: March 24, 2014

The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. Location was a short drive to the beach an Big Lagoon state park. My daughter went for a jog on the beach while I took a walk and looked for pretty agates. We went for a nice little hike in Lady Bird Johnson's grove and a drive in fern canyon. Trinidad is only 8 miles to the south and had nice places to eat and a little grocery store for supplies. This house does not have cell phone reception so if you are about to close on a house in a week (like me), make sure you have another form of communication. It does have good wifi reception and there is a land line which the owner is gracious to let you make free long distance phone calls.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, sight seeing

Owners response: I'm always so happy that our guests enjoy the beach house. As was mentioned, for many of our guests, the cell reception is rather sketchy by the ocean up here in Northern California. We also have mountains to the east of us, which may explain the interference with the accessibility. We do let our guests know this in our listing ahead of time, and we also give our guests the land line phone number and suggest that they give it to their friends and family so they can be reached by them. As was mentioned, we also provide free long distance phone service to aid phone accessibility.

Loved this House!

Review submitted: October 23, 2013   Date of arrival: October 18, 2013

Absolutely loved this place. I took my daughter, whose in college up there and her friends to spend the weekend. A lovely gift basket was there for us to enjoy. The directions and instructions the owner sent were very thorough. The house was appointed really nicely, as was the kitchen. I loved that there was coffee for the morning! We will definitely stay there again!!
