WEST OF HAVEN - NESTED IN THE GIANT REDWOODS - 5 MINUTE DRIVE TO BEACH

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

Nestled in the giant redwoods at the end of a private lane. Lovely 2 bedroom, 1 bath (with claw foot tub), kitchen, living room & dining room with custom woods and original floor art.

Magical is often the response from past guests. Our custom hand built home is nestled in the giant redwoods with beautiful private yard and just 3 miles from the historic fishing village of Trinidad.

Enjoy the videoWest of Haven on YouTube

West of Haven Redwood Retreat awaits your presence in a tranquil relaxing garden setting. Many walking trails meander through the woods and to the Westhaven Center for the Arts. The mile and a half walk to Moonstone Beach may be all the exercise you’ll need (especially coming back uphill). This is a quaint and lovely 2 bedroom, 1 bath guest house. Enjoy a soak in the claw foot tub. Custom woods and original floor art throughout as well as walls decorated with original oil paintings from the part time owner /artist in residence in the apartment upstairs.

The birds will serenade you in the morning. They may inspire you to play the family piano once owned by the 22nd Governor of California, James Gillett at the turn of the century. The sculpted garden of flowers and fruit trees will inspire the artist in you or you may just be content to bask near the Japanese maple with the gentle Humboldt breeze soothing your inner being.

Most travelers like to go hiking in the redwoods at the nearby state parks along the coast or on the many private trails. Just down the road from the property itself is Moonstone beach and also a fine dining restaurant, Moonstone Grill with bar and spectacular view.

West Of Haven Redwood Retreat is very close to everything yet the property is secluded and in its own beautiful environment lending itself to sheer relaxation.

The public beaches are plentiful and each one is unique. The pier in Trinidad (only 3 miles north) has a variety of scenes and activities where the Seascape restaurant is located. . In the town of Trinidad you can walk on foot to capture breathtaking ocean views. The Trinidad Eatery and the Beachcomber Cafe are near the light house and both excellent places. The Lighthouse Cafe is new and at the entrance of Trinidad along with Salty's Surf & Tackle, a place to rent bikes, surfboards, wetsuits, or fishing gear. Also in the beginning part of town is a small shopping center with a nice grocery store "Murphy's" and the Post Office. Across the street are 2 gift shops “Trinidad Trading Company” and the “Wind n' Sea Gift Shop”. Trinidad DaySpa is located near and can be a place to get pampered with a facial or massage. Moonstone Crossing winery and tasting room add color and body to what is already quite amazing.

Trinidad is full of culture with a new library, museum, park with bocce ball court and nice gazebo. An artisan’s collective art gallery is near the lighthouse and full of well crafted art.. Every town has an Arts Alive night which is always unique and good fun with music, art openings and wine tastings. Trinidad has one on the first Friday of every month

My name is Kahish and I am an artist, writer and musician. My Husband Ottavio, was born in Italy and speaks fluent Italian and is a great cook. We both travel often to Italy and to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico where we have a house that we built. We love nature and love to travel. We enjoy offering our home as a vacation destination for other travelers. We are both very hard working service oriented people. My artistic passions have spilled over into our home and here you will experience something unique. Ottavio keeps up the gardening and special rock work and outdoor touches. He loves to be outdoors. We both are eco-conscious and respect nature. We have been professional restaurateurs and organic farmers.

Heather purchased this house in 1991

We are just up from the ocean enough to be in a small banana belt. We like being rural and are fortunate to have all that we could possibly need so accessible and still maintain a private forested setting. We love to garden and do what we can to plant what we can that will thrive on the coast. Being close to a state college brings all the possible diversity of culture that anyone could possibly dream of while staying in beauty.

We are near Arcata, California where Humboldt State University is. This college town is very unique and has every kind of entertainment, eateries and coffee shops. We have monthly Arts Alive Events in every town near us which includes Trinidad, McKinleyville, Arcata and Eureka. We have Farmers and Artisan Markets in those locations as well. The north coast has the highest populations of creatives per capita. Artists and musicians thrive in this area as well as a small film industry. There are many Theatre arts activities and well as healing arts. If Yoga, Tai Chi or Zumba interests you, it is just around the corner weekly. For those who like to work out there is a HealthSport in McKinleyville and also Arcata. Also in Arcata is Finnish Country Sauna and tugs where you can enjoy outdoor private tubs. The Marine biology lab in Trinidad brings marine education to the public and well as a facility for research. Trinidad is historic and is full packed with things to do while maintaining its charm.

Reviewer Comments:
Our visit coincided with Northern California's first big storm in awhile, so we spent a lot of time inside. We were delighted to have a place that felt so comfortable and cozy. Enjoyed the covered portion of the deck where we could sit outside and enjoy the rain and croaking frogs. The kitchen was well stocked, bathroom had lots of thick towels, wifi and TV worked fine. My dog loved the big yard. The place had a very artsy feel both inside and out. Would be happy to return one day, perchance to see the sun.

Manager responded on 2/11/2014:
West of Haven is definitely a cozy home to have to spend time in. I do enjoy the yard and porch there very much, too, and in this home it is hard not to feel comfortable if you have an artistic nature. We would love to have you return, hopefully during a sunnier time. Have you considered the late fall, tends to be sunny then. Here at Redwood coast Vacation Rentals, we have over 50 vacation homes along the north coast with very varying environments, some that take dogs as well, so please keep us in mind for your next trip.

ok-to-nice stay, so quiet! the yard was so adorable!
TV remote needs new batteries
Very COLD my mother and I both had to sleep in the living room! I would never stay here again in the winter or recommend the house to anyone in the winter, the heater does NOT heat the bathroom, or bedrooms. All the dishes were dirty and had to be washed before we used them. The house was very clean, but maybe a dishwasher???

Manager responded on 1/16/2014:
Thank you for the review of West of Haven, Madeline. This is really a lovely little place to stay, I am sorry you found it cold and had to sleep in the living room. There was a heater in the bathroom and in the closet for use if needed, and I would have been happy to bring over a heater if those did not work, if notified. If you stay with us again, please call us immediately upon any discomfort. Your experience and stay matters to us. I apologize for the dirty dishes, we will definitely pay a little closer attention. I do hope you will return to us here at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals. We do have over 50 other vacation homes in quite varying environments you may also enjoy. Hope to see you again.

Reviewer Comments:
Property was off the beaten path - needed to take a dirt road for the final stretch. Furnishings were uncomfortable. Unit was clean and well presented though.

Manager responded on 1/6/2014:
Thank you for your review of West of Haven. I am sorry to hear that this place was not a good match for you. One of the allures of this property is the environment and that it is off the beaten path. We have many other rentals in completely different environments that may have suited you better. I do hope you stay with us again here with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals, and be sure to speak with our reservationist or property managers about the different locations so that we are able to help match you to a property to your liking and comfort. We do strive to provide our guests with the experience they are looking for. Again, thank you for your stay.
