THE SHELLSEEKER - PRIVATE OCEANFRONT HOME WITH COASTLINE VIEWS

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home with Views of Local Surf Break

Welcome to the ShellSeeker, a luxurious, private oceanfront home perched on an elevated bluff overlooking Camel Rock and the Trinidad Coast. The 180 degree view encompasses miles of sweeping swell lines, the city and harbor lights, and distant Humboldt County shorelines. This 2-bedroom, 2-bath exclusive seaside property is family owned and operated by Salty’s Supply Company, the Bait, Tackle, and Surf Shop located in downtown Trinidad that has been serving surfers and fisherman of the north coast for over 30 years. The ShellSeeker includes access to Salty’s rental inventory and a long list of amenities that will make you feel right at home.

Experience true Humboldt County Coastal Living, and enjoy the Redwood Coast in first-class style. With the ShellSeeker as your base camp and Salty’s as your local support, take the opportunity to discover a hidden side of Humboldt. The ShellSeeker is spacious and efficient, yet elegantly simple. There’s a view of the surf from every room, a well-equipped kitchen, deluxe bathrooms, and pillow soft queen beds.

No noise here. Just sounds of the sea, the bell and whistle buoys in Trinidad Harbor, or the ocean breeze. Few neighbors and plenty of boat or RV parking. The interior design of the home is nautically influenced. The open living room includes a premium sound system, a large flat-screen TV, and a cozy fireplace stocked with dry doug-fir firewood.

The kitchen is outfitted for 8 and stocked with plenty of cookware, spices, and appliances (and a vita-mix juicer) to inspire even the most modest chefs. Locally roasted organic coffee from Muddy Waters Coffee Co. is always kept stocked.

The bathrooms are like personal, mini-spas. The master includes a blue-water and horizon view from the jacuzzi tub, walk in shower, and premium finishes. No details were left out by the designer.

You can’t escape the ocean’s grip from any room of the house. Even on a chilly summer day just pick a room, grab a blanket, and cozy up next to the window and watch the whales pass by, the surfers down below, or the fishermen troll up and down the coast. You can also follow aircraft as it approach the coast and descends to the runway, see the lights of Arcata and Eureka to the south and clear down to Cape Mendocino on a good day. To the North, Trinidad Head frames in the Bay and Harbor view. Enjoy a fresh salmon barbecue from the patio as you unwind from an evening surf or sunset walk on the beach.

Without a doubt, the ShellSeeker’s claim-to-fame is the birds-eye-view of the surf at Camel Rock and Moonstone Beach. Surfers will appreciate witnessing how the tides influence the break and knowing when the time is right to paddle out. Be the first in the line-up, or wait until moments before sunset to have the waves all to yourself. Study the waves from the bluff, the couch, the kitchen, or bedroom. Traveling without gear? No worries. Qualifying ShellSeeker guests are welcome to use Salty’s rental wetsuits and boards.

The ShellSeeker sleeps 4 in beds, includes 2 extra fold-out sleeping pads, and for a little extra (and subject to availability) we can provide you with an adorable vintage 1970 Scottsman 14-ft Camper Trailer on-site that sleeps 2.

Look no further. Visit www.saltystrinidad.com to explore all the ShellSeeker and Salty's has to offer, and feel free to call if you have any questions.

Please call us before booking to confirm reservations. Hope to see you soon.

Salty's Supply Co. is a Bait, Tackle, & Surf Shop based in downtown Trinidad. Visit us at www.saltystrinidad.com.

The ShellSeeker is family owned and operated by Salty's Supply Co.. Surfers Journal put it this way: 'Surfers learn early to position themselves to best enjoy their circumstances. Whether in the water or on dry land, for a surfer it's always in relation to the waves.' Properties like this are one of a kind, and precisely what fisherman and surfers look for when scouting the conditions, searching for the salmon fleet offshore, and making the most of their time on the water. This due-west, birds-eye view of the Trinidad Coastline is unparalleled.

From recommendations to local restaurants, reservation assistance, trails to explore in the nearby Redwood National Forest, times and dates of local Farmer’s Markets, or places to go to escape the fog, feel free to lean on Salty’s for assistance. Along with info sharing, the best part about the partnership is that qualifying ShellSeeker guests are welcome to use the full line of rental inventory available at the shop including surfboards and wetsuits, bicycles, and fishing equipment. Don’t pack it. We have it. We’re connected. That’s just one of the many reasons you’ll find Salty’s and the ShellSeeker to be the perfect combination for your North Coast vacation.

A Truly Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
They have created a very comfortable atmosphere with consistently breathtaking views. Gabriel made the coordination absolutely simple and painless. The surrounding areas include mountains, rivers, enormous trees, amazing animals, great food, a rocky coastline and genuinely good people. But we could just have easily sat in the back yard all day and watched the tides, surfers and wildlife. The home is well appointed with more than can be expected in a usual vacation rental. It even has enough creature comforts built-in to help you through a day of rough weather. We were fortunate enough to have beautiful sunsets every single evening. I look forward to returning in the future.
Thanks again for sharing!

Very Very Nice

  • 5 of 5
We found Shellseeker to be exceptional in every way. Location, access, private, quiet, oceanview, style, cleanliness, comfort, just everything was top notch. Appreciated the local recommendations which we tried and enjoyed. this is definitely a home to return to again and refer family and friends. A great local tour is the Fire and Light glass shop and tour of the foundry located in Arcata. Their artful glass creations are beautiful and the tour very informative. This home was a fun place to be and explore the Trinidad area in depth. Looking forward to returning soon!

Beautiful Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week and it was very relaxing, very clean, very up to date, a much needed get a way for us. Will definitely be back for another visit. This house was BEAUTIFUL inside and out. Stocked with just what we needed. The only thing we could not find was a pair of binoculars, thought we seen some whales but was not real sure.

A perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough great things about this house! Exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and perfect views. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. We comfortably stayed with our 4 small children who loved playing in the backyard. Gabe is a responsive host and easily accessible. We will definitely return!
