Magnificent Bluff House!

  • 5 of 5

Ok, first impression of the property... Absolutely stunning. You just walk in the house saying "wow" and "OMG". The view from ANYWHERE is unbelievable. The house was top notch with all the amenities. The view from the patio is breathtaking, watching the mesmerizing tide roll lazily in and out, is a once in a lifetime view of the Pacific Ocean. It was a perfect paradise getaway. This place has ruined me for hotels. Thank you for sharing your wonderful Bluff House!

Outstanding Home with Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the Bluff house for our daughters graduation, and it was absolutely fantastic. We loved this house the minute we walked in. It has allot of light and a beautiful view of the ocean. It has a beautiful side yard with a patio area with a BBQ a view that is amazing. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything you need. For in town eating I recommend the Wildflower Cafe and Bakery it is not just good vegetarian food, its GOOD FOOD! We also, enjoyed Folie Douce, my daughter took us there as her treat, wonderful food. I believe their food is brought in fresh from the local farms. We purchased our groceries from the North Coast Co-op in Arcata, it is a full-service natural food grocery store owned by more than 16,000 members of the Humboldt community. Also, we enjoyed our daily juice at Wild Berries Market which they will make to your order with fresh vegetables and fruit. Things to see well, of course the Red Woods, and Trinidad lighthouse and the beaches. Our very favorite hike was Fern Canyon this is such a wonderful and enchanting place a must see. As you can tell we really enjoyed the Bluff house, we felt the house had a very cozy warm feel to it. You will love this house it does not disappoint. Overall this place is outstanding, the home and the community. If the opportunity arises, we will definitely be back. Thank you Beverly for sharing your home.

Lovely time at the Bluff House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids ages 2, 5, 7) stayed at the Bluff House in early April for 3 nights. The views were amazing and the house, perfect for our needs. There are 2 bedrooms in the back and a futon in the front room. Our 2 oldest kids adored sleeping on the futon in the front room every night and waking up to the stunning views. I also loved the décor of the house and the hardwood floors throughout. The home is beautifully put together yet cozy & inviting. Our kids loved going down to the beach below the house and running around the tide pools. I agree with the other posts that the house was very clean. Due to the cliff at the front of the house, anyone with young kids and/or pets should be acutely aware and vigilant. The homeowner was very clear and upfront about the cliff area to us before we booked and we took all precautions. Overall, we had a lovely time and would highly recommend renting this house to friends and family.

Beverly was wonderful to deal with regarding all aspects of booking. Everything was as stated except the house is more darling than could be expressed in pictures. Just a peaceful little nest perched above the ever changing ocean. Loved it ! Thank you Beverly

The best thing about the Trinidad area is the many uncrowded beaches and hikes through the redwoods and Fern Canyon. Add friendly locals, fishing out of Trinidad harbor, and easy-access kayak rental at two local lagoons. Find local fresh seafood, plenty of organic groceries, and several farmers markets. A lively arts and music scene surrounds the university in nearby Arcata with central town plaza. World-renowned marsh and wetlands, Humboldt Bay and Eureka old-town and historic Ferndale are also nearby. Good restaurants make for a special night out. Seasonal festivals, such as the Mad River Festival in nearby Blue Lake feature theater talent from around the world; Oyster Festival in Arcata celebrates local aquaculture and food; Wild Blackberry Festival in Westhaven and Trinidad Fish Festival are small, local community events.
