Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Abalone Cove proved to be the perfect for a retreat from work. It's a lovely setting with unique decor. The outdoor spa area is terrific. The hot tub was my favorite place to enjoy sunsets. The location is convenient to numerous state parks with redwood trails and beaches. Local eateries are close by, and in 20 minutes you can be in Arcata, which has fun local shopping venues. I would definitely stay here again.

Superb Seaside Stay

  • 5 of 5

Adjectives fail to describe the wonder of waking up to an ocean-side hot-tub and outdoor shower accompanied by the dulcet tones of sea-lions. We were charmed by the well-appointed cabin, and the hospitality shown us by Curtis (wine and chocolates, plus speedy help lighting the fire). The cabin is excellently located for exploring Redwoods state & national parks, and the lovely seaside town of Trinidad is only ~10 minutes drive south.

Charming Home with Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two nights at Abalone Cove and the pictures just don't do it justice! The view alone is worth the price of admission! Sunsets in the jacuzzi was one of our favorite parts...

We met with Curtis upon arrival and he was very helpful (there is a large binder in the home with all the information you could ever need). His home is beautiful, cozy, and painstakingly decorated in handmade objects, artwork, and "trinkets"! We could've stayed there a week and still found new items throughout the interior and exterior. We stayed here as it was close to Redwoods National & State Parks (about 15 min drive, well worth it) and Trinidad (small town close by with a grocery store and restaurants - about 5-7 min drive).

The bed was so comfortable, with a view of the ocean. The sea lions barking added to the ambiance. The outdoors area was unique - a sitting area, fire pit, deck, BBQ, outdoor shower/sink/toilet, jacuzzi, sauna, etc. We were able to "hike" down to the private beach. Totally worth it! His attention to detail on every thing in the home didn't go unnoticed! - it's one of the few VRBO's that welcomed us with a bottle of wine and chocolates, had firewood and kindling set up for a fire, ground coffee and condiments, and bathroom supplies (shampoo, soap, hair dryer, plenty of towels). We truly appreciated our stay here and wished we could've stayed longer! Curtis, we thank you so much for your hospitality! We hope to visit again in the future, but in the meantime we'll be telling everyone we know about your special spot on the ocean!

Trinidad treasure

  • 5 of 5

We loved the opportunity to stay at Abalone Cove for two nights, starting on Sept 21st. The house is in a great location, just north of the town of Trinidad and right on the ocean.

Curtis has done an amazing job of utilizing every square inch of his property to house and entertain his guests. The house is comfortable and has all the emeneties.

Outside of the house is where we spent most of our time, between the beautiful sitting areas, the garden, the hot tub, sauna and outdoor shower and not to be missed, the trail leading down to the beach.

It’s apparent that years of work on this property preceded our journey. Keep up the good work, Curtis.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and location. Lots of extra touches in the place by Curt and it's great. The place has everything we needed and more and we enjoyed our privacy.

One small suggestion would be screens in the upstairs windows so you can enjoy the sounds of the ocean while staying bug free.

In addition, the town of Trinidad was a great place and we wished we could have stayed longer and explored more.
