Wonderful place to vacation for our family

This was a fabulous place to stay for our family of 5 adults and 2 kids. The beds were cozy and the kitchen was great for cooking dinner, and the patio was wonderful for sitting out in the sun when it chose to appear. The house was very clean, and the location is just perfect for going to Moonstone Beach and Trinidad.

Nice Trinidad Cottage

Conveniently located by Moonstone Beach and a short drive to good eating places in Trinidad. Seascape and the Eatery were our favorites! Loved hiking up to Wedding Rock and into Fern Canyon. House was ok, clean but had a bit of a pet odor in the living room. Might not bother most, but noticed spider webs around entrance and on patio furniture that might have been swept up. Jacuzzi was nice and hot, beds were clean and comfy and there were plenty of towels. Lots of games and puzzles to keep entertained. All in all we had a great stay.

Great getaway

We were thrilled to be able to book this house same day, literally on our way driving up to the area from San Francisco on a spur of the moment trip to visit my son. The house is very spacious, great for a family, very comfortable, great kitchen, great hot tub, and even a ping pong table! The location was perfect for picking up our HSU student and going to explore the redwoods and beaches, i just wish we could have stayed longer. Moonstone Beach is particularly beautiful.

Misleading Property

This was a frustrating experience. While the title of the listing was 'walk to the beach', this was an impossible task. My parents were staying with us(74 and 68 yrs old) and they had no shot at walking to the beach from this property. We checked in on a chilly, rainy day, and we were greeted with a message to keep the heat below 65(remember I have older parents with me) and a notice to take our shoes off at the door(again with the older parents). I'd never stay here again and would not recommend anyone else to do so. I dont like to pay 300 a night to be chilly and have to take my shoes off at the door.

Coastal Cottage

This is our second time staying at Coastal Cottage, we absolutely LOVE IT!! the home has such a good feel, we were all very comfortable during our stay and decided to stay an extra day. Highly recommended

Our family of five felt right at home during our stay in Trinidad. The cottage/house had a comfortable feel and ample floor plan with lots of knotty pine and wood trim. There were many windows so you had ample views of this beautiful area and nice natural light. It was super clean and welcoming and had a spacious kitchen. The garden surround was beautiful with a resident Redwood tree providing a gorgeous exclamation mark. The manager emailed us a helpful description and needed information well ahead of time and was responsive to a question we had about the lock box number. We were in the area for the Humboldt graduation so did not have time to enjoy the hot tub or the ping pong in the garden but walking around the property was a wonderful experience in the beautiful garden area.We especially enjoyed the Seascape Restaurant down by the dock for itsgreat location and delicious, ample food. We got to visit the Humboldt Marine Biology Lab and recommend this to area visitors. The drive from the cottage along the coast to Trinidad the back way was spectacular.Yes, you can walk to the beach and the cottage up on Driver Road gives an overlook of the Pacific but for us, the walk would take awhile so it wasn't quite as "coastal" as we'd imagined. With some more vacation time hiking down to the beach would have been quite doable.The road was quiet and lightly traveled for the most part so the sounds of nature were all around us. Most cars passing were driving sensibly but very occasionally the speed of one or two reminded us not to omit the "stop, look and listen".The Coastal Cottage worked beautifully for us and we recommend this rental wholeheartedly.

A Wedding Stay

The wedding was at Moonstone, so the house couldn't have been better situated. Our daughters and boyfriends stayed with us and it was very comfortable. Enjoyed the hot tub and even played a game of pingpong. A nice place overall.

Trinidad coastal get away

We enjoyed our stay at the coastal cottage. We found the home to be very clean, which we especially appreciated. The beds were cozy and comfortable. We quickly discovered the main living area did not have an electric fireplace when we first arrived. Very difficult for that area to get warm until the managers made arrangements to have a space heater delivered. They got on this quite quickly. That made a big difference. The owner of the home even stopped by to check on things, which we really appreciated. Kitchen was well stocked and very open. We love Trinidad, so despite the cold weather, it didn't stop us from enjoying our hikes and exploring the area a bit. We were even able to enjoy the patio area outside with a few games of corn hole. The Holly Yashi tour in Arcata was very informative/interesting. Beaches and sunset were lovely. Would love to see a nice sectional in the main living area instead of the two, not so cozy sofa sleeper couches. A little cold and stiff, but otherwise in very good condition. Never did use the hot tub, but it sure looked inviting!

Comfortable home with convenient location

Five of us stayed at this home for five nights in July. It was easy to find in a quiet neighborhood with just one semi close neighbor. The location was perfect for our vacation. It's close to Redwood National Park, multiple beaches, and Arcata. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals, the beds were comfortable, and the home was clean. The hot tub was great after spending a day hiking and was very clean. The living room furniture could be a bit more comfortable, however we spent a lot of our time on the patio, which was nicely landscaped. We would definitely stay here again and hope to return next summer.

Loved This Property!

My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Trinidad and one of the main reasons for this was the Coastal Cottage home. It was a perfect fit for us and we hope to return in the near future!

The house was perfect, very comfortable and lots of room. The yard was great to sit in and relax. Neighborhood was very quiet. A very enjoyable stay, will come back again!

Costal Cottage Labor Day

It was my first and went fairly well. The location was perfect. Hot tub was a nice bonus. With being used to a hotel, there seemed to be a lot of rules about cleanliness. Not used to that. The rooms and towels smelled strongly like mildew. There were a few spiders in the house and a lot of spider webs attached to the house outside. The vacation renters were very nice and accommodating to our needs. I would rent here again.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

Our family of eight had a wonderful at the Costal Cottage! The house was very clean, comfortable, and spacious. Everyone had a great time. The age range was 10-65. The hot tub worked well, and was an added bonus. We plan to return again in the future.

Coastal Cottage Experience

We had a wonderful, relaxing time. The house was clean and very well maintained. It is located on a quiet street so sleeping was wonderful. The hot tub was great! It has beautiful landscaping. I would stay here again and again!

Our trip to the Redwoods

We were very happy to stay at the Coastal Cottage the outdoor setting was fantastic with a beautiful flower garden and our very own redwoods. We enjoyed the hot tub and ping pong. Only two things could have been better: the down pillows and comforters on the queen beds smelled very musty, as if they had been washed and not dried properly. Luckily there were two extra polyfilled pillows on the king bed that we could use on one of the queens. Also the light above the stove was not working. Otherwise very comfortable.

Well located, comfortable, beautiful Home

The coastal cottage in Trinidad was very comfortable, clean, quiet, and centrally located for adventuring in the coastal redwoods and beaches. The home is actually in West Haven, which is part of Trinidad but north of the 101 freeway. The walk to the beach is a bit long and is on a Windee road with some uphill areas. However, it is not too hard to do and if you choose to drive there is a nice parking lot at Moonstone Beach. The home is very comfortable, well stocked, safe, and very beautiful. The friendly staff at Trinidad retreats was very helpful and informative. I would definitely stay here Again.

Beautiful place!

Great little house, well appointed, we felt right at home immediately. Easy to find, access was super easy. We walked down to the beach the first day and it was gorgeous. We soaked in the jacuzzi each morning, sipping our coffee even in the rain one day. What a way to wake up and shine!

Immaculate, spacious and awesome location! This house was one of the nicest places we rented. It was fully stocked with all the comforts of home. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Sweet Spot

They say in realty that location is everything. This property was in an ideal location for a perfect vacation. It is secluded, but within minutes from everything we wanted to do on our holiday. Beach - 5 to 10 minutes from four different locations that ranged from isolated to very popular; all were beautiful. Within 50 miles from 100s of the most awe inspiring hiking/biking trails deep in the redwood forests. It is 15 minutes from live entertainment in Arcata, and 30 minutes to fireworks over the bay in Eureka. The house itself was cozy and well stocked. Everything was in good working order and lived up to all expectations. I highly recommend staying here.

Nice place.

Great location with beautiful natural garden. The house was very well maintained and the kitchen well stocked. Plenty of silverware and bowls. Plenty of space for a family of five. Beds were comfortable and the two bathrooms nice and clean. It was also a great experience to sit in the hot tub on a fresh evening and observing the stars from there. We would certainly like to come back.

Birthday Weekend Retreat

This home was lovely and perfectly appointed for comfort. The layout was just right for our family and the patio area with the hot tub, southern exposure, and ping pong table was a bonus. The location was perfect for a weekend away. Easy access to and from Highway 101 and close to Moonstone Grill, Moonstone Beach, and Trinidad.

. Trinidad retreat

The Trinidad rental we stayed in was very nice everything was in order we felt that it was just as good as being at home because it had everything we needed including beach towels however I thought the beach was nearest but we had to walk down the street to get to it so we didn't go there rentals nearby the Redwoods and town and fishing and also the Trinidad Beach

Great Time in Trinidad

There were three adults and a toddler who stayed at this lovely home. It was very well equipped, very nice dishes and utensils. No expense spared in this area. While we didn't cook that much as we spent a lot of time visiting with family and friends at other locations, I noticed there were sufficient pots, pans and casserole dishes to be able to cook if that was our desire. The home has been remodeled and the kitchen and the bathrooms are quite nice. The beds were very comfortable and, since it's a rural location with no street lights, it is very dark and quiet at night so very helpful for sleeping. The bedrooms are fairly large so there is plenty of room for luggage, etc. We weren't tripping over each other in this home. There are plenty of things to do in the house as outlined in the information regarding the property. Again, we barely turned on the TV since we were gone so much but you can certainly keep yourself entertained if you choose to stay home and relax. I especially liked the view out the kitchen window in the morning when we were preparing breakfast. It overlooks a deck and a nice wooded area. Very peaceful. We live in a city so the quiet solitude is quite lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay here again with no problem. The management was easy to work with and contacted us promptly when we inquired about anything. The only thing I would mention is that they do request that you not wear shoes in the house. It was no problem for us as we do this at home but if you have an issue with that then maybe this isn't the place for you.

Perfect for big family!

We rented the house for HSU Graduation and it was perfect for us and the grandparents! Everyone had their own room. Huge kitchen with everything we could need! Lots of cookware, dishes, accessories, you name it. Furniture was very nice and the beds were comfy. Dining table very big. Yard areas were lovely and the hot tub was great! Very quiet. Beach was a couple minute drive away. We had a great stay!

Redwoods adventure

This house was clean and comfortable. Lots of room w my hubby and I and 2 teens. The beds were great and it was so quiet. It was a little off the beaten path. I would like to be a bit closer to the beach especially if it was summer season. Nice quiet town and great central location to make our way further north to see the Redwoods and Fern Valley.

Excellent Trinidad Retreat

Magnificent Redwood Vacation

Coastal Cottage more than exceeded our expectations - quiet, clean, peaceful with plenty of room for our group of four. It gave us a perfect spot to relax and unwind from our hikes in the Redwood's.

Costal Cottage in Tinidad.

It would have been a lot nicer if all the bedroom doors didn't stick. Whenever anyone opened their door, it would wake up everyone else because of the noise. The walk to the beach was pretty steep.

One of the best times we have ever had…...

We needed to book something for our daughter's graduation from HSU. We had grandparents and family members that wanted to attend, so we really wanted to stay together and enjoy the celebration as a family. The local motels/hotels raised their rates for the weekend and almost doubled the cost they normally charge.We found Trinidad Retreats off a Google search, and found the Coastal Cottage because it would sleep all 7 of us. We booked it on the spot.A little apprehensive at first because we didn't know what to expect, but hat went away real quick when we got there.There is a huge redwood in the middle of the property. The patio area had plenty of seating and a great secluded feel. The cottage's floor plan is very open with big picture windows facing the ocean. There are a few steps down to the living room area which has plenty of lounging area where we spent most of our time. There is a large dining room area but at mostly outside because it was so relaxing. The kitchen is awesome It's immaculate and has all the emminities to cook and eat. The bedrooms are super clean and the beds are very comfortable. The weekend was awesome. Exactly what we wanted. 6 Rivers Brewery in McKinleyville must for dinner and drinks.

Great house for a family!

We loved this house! It has a great layout, feel, and decor. We loved the fact that there was no clutter, but had all the items needed for cooking. Less clutter is good, especially when you have kids that like to get into things. It's kept very simple and very clean. The house has such a nice warm feel to it. We would stay here again.

Great getaway home

We are very glad we rented this house. 6 people slept comfortably and we were close to the Redwood National Park while being steps (steep ones) from Moonstone Beach. The house was in great shape and everything was basically new. The one thing we really took away was this area is pretty remote so a nice house you can relax in is key. Grill worked great too.

Westhaven Vacay

We can to this rental with our youngest boys, age 14 and 9. We wanted to show them the area where we met and lived over 20 years ago. It was wonderful. The home was very comfortable and in a perfect location. We only wish that we had more time to stay!

Wonderful Stay

My family stayed here for a week and it was wonderful. The house is extremely clean and a comfy home to vacation in. Very close to wonderful beaches. We ended up going north and south for various outings and were amazed how this location was just perfect. The one down side was the sky light in one of the bedrooms. The sun shining in woke the children a little too early :-) We would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.

Sweetest spot on the Northern Calfornia Coast!

We had such a great time here. The Coastal Cottage has something for everyone. My husband headed out early to surf at Moonstone beach just about a mile away and my three-year-old son enjoyed both the beach and the hot tub. It is a beautiful and serene spot to lay in the sun. The nearby town of Trinidad has shopping and great coffee at the Beachcomber cafe. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and relatives. The house itself is really clean, beautiful and relaxing--we spent about six hours doing puzzles and games. The outside grill and the full kitchen are also great for preparing meals either for family or friends.

Mixing business and pleasure on the redwood coast

This worked very well for our family gathering. I needed to be near Humboldt State University (8 miles south) for a meeting, and in addition to the restaurants and grocery stores in Arcata and nearby towns, we had easy access to the redwood parks 20 miles to the north, as well as great views and hiking in the Trinidad area. There is not much of an ocean view from this property, but the house and grounds are lovely, including a large redwood. It's great to be up on the hill, out of the tsunami inundation zone, just in case the really big one happens -- and the house is just a two minute drive from fabulous ocean views, beaches, and hikes. The kitchen was well equipped, and the living and dining and sleeping areas were very comfortable, newly remodeled, very conducive to socializing and sharing home-cooked meals. This was a great base camp for exploring the area. If it's important that you can sit in a living room or on a deck and have a great ocean view from there, something closer to the water would be better -- otherwise, this place would be hard to beat for a house this size.
