Overview

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Oceanfront 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.

Experience true Humboldt County Coastal Living, and enjoy the Redwood Coast in first-class style. With the ShellSeeker as your base camp and 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 and a large flat-screen TV.

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 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.

The ShellSeeker sleeps 4 in beds and includes 2 extra fold-out sleeping pads.

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

The Best of a Five Star Hotel Luxury and Cozy Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Lucky me. My husband and I spent a romantic three days at ShellSeeker where we made use of every part of this beautiful house with a great kitchen (want!) and spectacular views. Right from the start we knew exactly where everything was, thanks to the great orientation brochure from the owner. The kitchen was well stocked and had great cooking paraphernalia, the master bathroom had radiant floors and a state of the art shower and tub and yummy big fluffy white towels. The master bed was soooo comfortable.

This house is architectural perfection and comfort all rolled into one with sophisticated decor and a graceful flowing layout. In addition to the outside seating on the bluff overlooking the coast of Trinidad, the living room provided all kinds of inside seating options for cozy reading, watching the sunset, or even watching the TV. Even the master bedroom had a comfy window seat with a great view.

The little town of Trinidad is right nearby. In fact, this house has easy access to the freeway but you’d never think it was so close and convenient. The owner provides excellent guides to all the beautiful state parks in the area along with tips on local dining and entertainment. A complete and flawless experience!

Yes, we’ll be back. What a gem of a place!

Just returned from our 3 night getaway. Loved this place! Very clean and well appointed. Very private but just a 5 minute drive into town. Gabe goes all out to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. House is extremely clean and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Will definitely return.

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!
