I couldn't have dreamt of a more beautiful place for our anniversary. The views, the crashing waves, the sealions on the beach below make this a spectacular vacation spot. We can't

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Abalone Cove is a slice of heaven in the midst of Trinidad. My husband and I spent a week there and it was absolutely perfect. Curtis has done a stupendous job of making the place unique and inviting, both inside and out. The house is filled with art and interesting knick-knacks all over. Even after being there a full week, I'm sure there were things that we missed. Outside, there are at least six different sitting areas, depending what you're in the mood for. We used the hot tub every evening, enjoying the sunset/stars and the sweet barking of the sea lions. Flowers are everywhere. Curtis gives you total privacy while you are there. We ran into him several times in the driveway when we were heading out or in, and had some very interesting conversations. He also gave us good advice on places to go and things to do. The house is solar-powered, which is also a plus. We made it down to the rocky beach a couple of times, and enjoyed the sea lions and some beach combing. Abalone Cove was our home base as we explored the giant redwoods, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect "home" during our stay. Everything was very clean, and Curtis left detailed instructions on the use of just about everything. The space in the house can be a little tight, but it was plenty spacious for the two of us. Enjoy!

Great for our first vrbo experience.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lush outdoor area. Hot tub and view were great! You can hear the ocean dogs (sea lions) barking and view them thru binoculars. Lots of beach options in the area or you can brave the trek to the private one. We did with no problem. The house is literally equipped with everything you need. We went to the Arcata farmers market in the next town over to get meal fixings. This property is private and quiet. A fresh little bouquet and bottle of wine greeted us upon arrival. Very nice for our first experience with vrbo. Owner was quick to respond with all my questions beforehand and provides tons of info neatly organized for you when you get there.

Beauty beyond words!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great experience at Abolone Cove! It was a great place to relax after hiking many trails in the nearby national parks! We utilized the hot tub nightly. I also enjoyed the outdoor shower! Curtis is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He has created an enchanting escape!

Abalone Cove

  • 4 of 5

I gave Abalone Cove 4 because most everything about this place was awesome and I believe with a few small things it could be 5 stars! Location is perfect to the ocean. The outdoor spa area and little sitting areas are awesome. I think the place just needs a good dusting/de-cobwebbing and the outside areas need some TLC so you are able to sit in some of the awesome tucked away sitting areas. They were just a little over grown so we weren't able to hang out on the bench. I am all about coastal foliage for sure! All in all its a beautiful place.

Cozy place, spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

Home was well kept, clean, and quiet. The bed was comfortable. A full kitchen is available if you want to cook. There are not many restaurants in Trinidad, but a nice grocery store in town. Easy drive to the various redwood forests. There is a hot tub and sauna that we did not use, but appears to be well maintained. The view of the ocean was spectacular. A trail leads to the beach and it is worth the trip. Trail is steep and need to be in decent shape. Would recommend property highly for a nice getaway. Curtis was very helpful.
