NORTHERN CALIFORNIA'S BEST VACATION RENTAL

The only vacation rental in California that has it all:

• Secluded 10 acre estate

• Panoramic views

• Hot tub

• Double ended claw-foot tub

• Wi-fi

• Zip line

• Creek

• Campfire pit

• Loft

• Private beach

• Private trail to the beach

IMAGINE THE PERFECT LOCATION: OCEANFRONT, SECLUDED AND BREATHTAKING VIEWS...

ARE YOU READY TO INDULGE YOURSELF?

Then picture yourself listening to the roar of the ocean as you watch the waves crash on the offshore rocks. Relax in the hot tub while you unwind on the private 10 acre estate. And soak in the romantic double ended claw-foot tub while you enjoy the welcome basket of wine and chocolates that greet you.

'The best place I've ever been in my entire life!'

-quote we've heard from many guests.

RIGHT ON THE OCEAN: This stunning two bedroom, two bath + loft oceanfront home sits right on the bluff above Pirate’s Cove in picturesque Trinidad. Fully furnished house includes a full kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi, cable and flat panel plasma TV. The master bedroom features a California King bed. Bedroom #2 has a queen (Captain’s) bed. The loft has a queen bed and a full sized bed along with a ‘periscope skylight dome’ for star gazing and ocean viewing. All rooms have ocean views.

VERY WELL APPOINTED including such amenities as Harney & Sons tea, Keurig and Peets coffee, Aveda shampoo & conditioner, laundry detergent, firewood, his and hers Egyptian cotton bathrobes, etc. Lever handles throughout. Old growth redwood floors in the bedrooms and master bathroom. Redwood dining room table. Campfire pit right on the bluff. 100′ zip line for the kids!

SECLUDED YET CLOSE: This is not in a neighborhood or on a main street but in a private 10 acre oceanfront estate with gated access. It is on quiet, historic Stagecoach road. Yet it’s only 1/2 mile to the top-rated Larrupin restaurant and 2 miles to the center of Trinidad with restaurants, art galleries, shopping, day spa & massage.

IN THE HEART OF REDWOOD COUNTRY: Centrally located with redwood parks to the north and south (less than 4 miles from Patrick’s Point State Park). 15 minutes to Arcata (ACV) airport (free airport transfers starting on April 2nd). Ten minutes to the Trinidad Cher-Ae Heights casino which features minor acts such as Starship, Everclear, Tony Orlando and Skid Row.

WHALE WATCHING options exist from the house, deck, bluff and beach. Nearby sea lions can be heard (and sometimes smelled!) and can be seen to the north. Although we see whales on a regular basis, we recently started seeing seals and sea lions in the cove directly below too.

A PLACE TO MAKE MEMORIES. Weather you're a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family looking for a spectacular retreat, the Oceanfront Chalet has it all.

The loft has been painted with a unique ‘infinity perspective’. In reality, the room is only about 8′ wide x 25′ long, but the illusion makes the room appear to continue forever (see photo). This is the kind of effect usually done in a Disneyland or museum type setting and this may be the first time it has been done in a private residence. There is also a window at the far end of the room, but it is concealed as part of the illusion.

Guests have access to the entire home, minus one closet in which we store extra supplies. Guests have complete privacy in this house as YOU ARE RENTING THE ENTIRE HOME. There are no other floors, rooms or sectioned off areas rented out to other parties.

Wild blackberries, huckleberries, and salmon berries abound on the property. Huckleberries can be plucked while in the hot tub. Wild mint grows on the south side of the Chalet.

Owners are on site and can provide free airport transfers from ACV and concierge services.

Owner operated, No admin/booking fees.

About Mike & Debbie Wood

We are an active couple in our fifties. Debbie has a medical background and Mike has an aviation background.

After looking all over, we decided Trinidad was the best place in the world to live. The ocean views can't be beat. Trinidad is always cool and has world class views. It's small and uncrowded with no traffic, yet just big enough to have a grocery store and restaurants. And there's an airport only 15 minutes away. So, after vacationing here for ten years we decided to retire here. We moved to Trinidad in 2010 and in 2012 we purchased an oceanfront property with a guest house.

The Oceanfront Chalet is family owned and managed. The owners are on site in the adjacent house to the south.

Mike & Debbie Wood purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike & Debbie Wood chose Trinidad

This is located on historic Stagecoach Rd. Stagecoach road has private estates that average 5 - 10 acres in size. It is not a main road and there are no subdivisions. There is no freeway noise. So it is very quiet and does not have the packed in neighbors that the town has. This particular estate is 10 acres. It has awesome, panoramic ocean views (along with the constant roar of the ocean). Our private drive has gated access and the Chalet is about 400 yards in from Stagecoach road so you can enjoy a secluded vacation.

What makes this house unique

This is the only vacation rental in California that has it all: Private beach, Private waterfall, Panoramic views, Creek, Hot tub, Claw-foot tub, Wifi, Zipline, Campfire pit, Loft.

The Oceanfront Chalet - Your best choice for an awesome vacation!

Redwood vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a very trip to Trinidad. The house was comfortable and cozy. We had a spectacular view of the ocean, both day and night. This was a great destination for our small family, with enough space for all to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Natural Wonder! Best Ocean View In Trinidad!

  • 5 of 5

The northern coast has been a destination to escape for our family for several years. What a treat to discover a new natural wonder and the best ocean view in Trinidad at our recent stay at the " Ocean Front Chalet "! This is a cozy, comfortable, and well appointed chalet that truly offers an escape from it all! To wake up and see the view from the bluff every morning was breath taking! The owners are so welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend this retreat for anyone searching for the natural beauty of the north coast and the serenity it offers. We look forward to our next visit!

Definitely for nature lovers!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. I was looking for privacy and nature. This property met both of my requirements. The house was great, but honestly, I didn't spend much time in it! Spent most of my time out on the deck, overlooking the ocean and listening to the sounds of the waves. That was my intention; I really needed to be by the ocean. The stairs down to the ocean gave me quite a workout and I did get my exercise in for the day when I was there! The wildlife was awesome; as an avid birdwatcher, I was thrilled to log two new species (California Quail and Stellar's Jay) to my ongoing bird list. I also was thrilled to get to see a little chipmunk. This property isn't very far out from the town of Trinidad; close enough to be able to visit some of the quaint little shops and wine tasting rooms, but far enough away to feel like I was visiting some exclusive property. Overall, a fantastic property and one I will return to.

Adventurous families will love this!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the chalet. We have 5 kids, 7 to 17, and stayed a week. Within the first five minutes I think I heard, "This place is so cool!" 20 times! From the fairy tale like forest you drive through to get to the chalet, to the loft and games and books, my kids were thrilled. There was always something to do. We visited the rocky beach and tide pools almost every day and found sea stars, hermit and fiddler crabs, anemones, and even caught a glimpse of a sea otter. The chalet is close enough to Trinidad to be a quick run for gas, groceries, or a fun day out watching boats or playing in the sand of this sleepy sea town. We drove just a short 30 minutes to hike in the Redwoods - our favorite trail was Trllium Falls. The view off the porch and bluff is breathtaking! Mike and Debbie were wonderful hosts.

Beautiful views, comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

Off the beaten path, very comfortable house, friendly hosts (they stay completely out of the way, unless you prefer otherwise I suppose). Washer, dryer, all kitchen needs, fire pit with a view! The hike down to the water is steep, and the hiker back up seems steeper! But it's pretty when you're down there! Would definitely recommend if you want a nice, clean place to stay off the beaten path with plenty of privacy!

Owners are in the large house to the SW of the Chalet and can provide free airport transfers, assist you with zip line instruction, where to find berries, questions about the area or any other concerns you may have.
