Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6
The Pura Vida house has been completely rebuilt and completed in June 2013. Huge, sweeping views of the waves, rocks and coastline command your attention from nearly every room in the house! The dining and living room areas offer a two-storey view towards the craggy sea stacks and Trinidad head, and the views from loft bedroom area above cause people to stop in their tracks, transfixed by the movement of the breaking waves and soaring birds.

Sip your morning coffee while sitting on the stools at the kitchen island and enjoy the passing pelicans, sea gulls, terns and the occasional osprey. Harbor seals often haul-out on the rocks just a few hundred meters away. A pair of binoculars is provided so you can get a closer look of all the action. The delightful master bedroom upstairs has a unique trapezoidal window that gathers the morning sun, in addition to its main windows with stunning views of the cove and rocks. Even the upstairs bathroom has a wonderful window that looks down onto Luffenholz Beach, directly below. A second bedroom has a more cozy feel, but still delivers oceans views as well as into the trees alongside the house. Cool weather? The house has radiant heating in the floors in every room, plus a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and gas fireplace in the TV area. Even the bathroom towel racks are heated! The incredible new kitchen has completely new appliances and beautiful cabinetry. I have been in the house many times during reconstruction and the attention to detail is amazing, right down to the grain and color of woods used throughout, the breathtaking redwood-topped kitchen island, each huuuge boulder for the new landscaping, and the glass walls in the showers (I love the headboard/privacy wall combo in the master bedroom upstairs). Outside, one of the prime attractions is the redwood deck – pull up a chair, relax and enjoy your favorite beverage while you watch, listen, and smell the surf. Surrounded by the Pacific on 3 sides, this house is at one of the most magnificent spots in Humboldt County and just 1.8 miles from the town of Trinidad with its handful of cafes, restaurants and shops – and winery tasting room! Want to stroll on the beach or explore the tide-pools? Luffenholz State Beach is directly below the house and the maintained path to the beach is only 200 meters down the road. Walk another 5 minutes to Houda Point with intimate views of Camel Rock (with some great surf spots) and even more sweeping views down the coast towards Eureka. A bit further and you can stroll along Moonstone Beach! Walk right out the door, jump on your bike and head off and explore the coastline, Trinidad, Patrick's Point State Park, Arcata Bottoms farmlands and the Mad River Beach and Dunes. All of these things without even getting in your car! At night, enjoy Direct TV from either of two areas. Use the house’s wireless internet access to keep in touch at the office or explore the web for local restaurants or other activities. The 2.5 bedroom (master bedroom, second bedroom and loft bedroom), 2 bath house sleeps six. The upstairs has the master bedroom, loft bedroom and master bath. The loft overlooks the living room, in addition to the remarkable views. The first floor features an open floor plan including the living room, kitchen, kitchen island, dining area, and TV area. The second bedroom, second bathroom and laundry area (with washer and dryer) extend off of the main areas. The house includes a barbeque, Direct TV, washer/dryer, and a stereo system with speakers in many of the rooms – but you'll want to spend your time enjoying the views of the surf! BTW, the band "Skid Row" stayed here in February 2011.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The greatest house on the coast. Four of us were awed by the house. It’s one of the best vacation spots ever, yet we felt we were part of the local scene. Reed was really helpful and prompt in resolving a plumbing issue. He also gave us terrific travel tips. We loved every minute of our stay!
