This secluded bluff-top house on a private road has ocean views up and down the coast and is inundated by sounds of the surf. The cottage is perfect for a quiet retreat or a family vacation. Look for whales from the 40-foot living room, check out the surfers, or watch nesting seabirds on the rocks below. Walk to pristine beaches. Lagoons, rivers, and forest parks are just a short drive away. Fish or sea kayak out of Trinidad harbor.
The sheltered side yard has a campfire pit and a portable barbecue. Bedrooms feature good quality mattresses, down and non-allergenic duvets, all-cotton linens, opening windows. The cottage has hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, digital cable w/DVR, Wi-Fi, XBox, DVD/VCR/stereo system, and a fully equipped kitchen w/ Bosch gas range and dishwasher / Multi-Pure water system. Bathroom has clawfoot tub/shower. Proximity to ACV airport.
Rates displayed are for 2 guests; RATES for MORE THAN 2 GUESTS increase accordingly and are displayed in seasonal rate notes and included in quotes.
NOT available for large parties or receptions. Some simple gatherings OK with owner agreement on file.
The map shows the house back from the ocean, but in fact it is right on the bluff top with nothing between you and the ocean. GPS may direct travelers to the wrong road. (Ask for owner's directions if you have booked the house and have not received them.)
The cottage is close to the airport, restaurants, Humboldt Bay, a wildlife sanctuary and charter boats. Nearby historic towns feature music, movies, art galleries, concerts, and more restaurants.
** Owner is often on the property in the attached writing studio, with separate entrance and private deck. You have exclusive use of the main house during your stay. Most likely you'll only see me if I'm out working in the garden or we meet in the driveway.
** For your security, there are some perimeter cameras on the property. They do not intrude on your privacy. If you have any concerns, please let me know.
Thanks to guests Jim Thompson and Wendy Moran for photos taken during their stays at Bluff House.
Guest email during Bluff stay:: The house is wonderful. I wonder if I might extend my stay for two more nights if it is available. I would love to meet you as well. This house is truly a haven for me and I am so appreciative for the time here. -- Wendy M., New York
