Sanctuary is an exclusive vacation home for those seeking a peaceful, uniquely tranquil experience where the beauty of art, architecture, and nature nourish the body and soul. The first U.S. built home designed by renowned West Vancouver architect, Brian Hemingway and built by Thomas Noonan Construction culminates the owner's 20-year vision and plan for a spectacular coastal retreat. The style and craftsmanship of this home has been described as a piece of "green" artwork combining the natural elements of wood, glass, and slate to harmonize with the surrounding redwoods and unparalleled coastal views from Trinidad Head to Arcata and Eureka from virtually every room. Expansive outdoor decks and bedroom terraces allow enjoyment of ocean breezes while the interior architectural details will enthrall guests and transcend every climactic condition outside. New hot tub for a further relaxing experience.

Arrival times are restricted to before 8 pm because a representative from our company will meet you at the property upon your arrival.

The home is equipped with a full laundry room with brand new Maytag Neptune washer and dryer, wireless internet access, high definition audiovisual systems including two large screen LCD TVs, state of the art Electrolux kitchen appliances, radiant floor heating, two gas fireplaces, and an outdoor gas barbecue. Sanctuary is a Tesla-ready home, equipped with its very own Tesla Wall Connector (high speed charging equipment for Tesla electric vehicles). Three bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other two with queen beds contain their own bathrooms and a fourth small "bunkroom" is ideal for kids with two single beds. The main master suite has a wall of glass to take in the most amazing ocean view. The bathroom features double sinks, a towel warmer rack, a walk in shower with three showerheads, and an ocean view sitting area. Large custom-made door panels in the living areas and bedrooms open indoor spaces to the outside. Huge concrete patio deck area with perimeter seating.

Out of respect and kindness to the neighbors, we are unable to allow large gatherings at any of our homes. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sanctuary is located one mile south of Trinidad on the Scenic Drive bluff 10 minutes from the Arcata/Eureka Airport, providing commercial and private jet service from LA, Redding & Portland. It is a ten minute hike to secluded and pristine Baker Beach and a short drive to many other fabulous flat and rocky beaches in the area. Within a 10 minute drive north, you have access to multiple natural attractions such as Trinidad Head Trail, Patrick's Point State Park, Agate Beach, Redwood National Park including Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Prairie Creek State Park, Fern Canyon and herds of Roosevelt elk. To the south, explore Humboldt State University and Arcata, Old Town, Eureka, the Eureka Waterfront, and the Victorian Village of Ferndale. Trinidad harbor supplies charter boats for ocean fishing, sightseeing, and whale watching excursions depending upon season while the Trinity, Klamath, Eel and Mad Rivers offer world class trout, steelhead and salmon fishing as well as river rafting and kayaking. Excellent restaurants abound in Trinidad, Arcata, and Eureka. Your choice-relax on the decks and simply enjoy the surroundings or explore the wild north coast and return to your "Sanctuary.

Sorry, but no RV's allowed.

This was absolutely the best way to spend the new year! We spend the weekend with two other couples, and it was perfect. It really is a sanctuary.

Kitchen is well-stocked and living space is awesome cool. Firepit outside for cozy conversation and glass of Napa red. We WILL be back.

Pretty much the crown jewel of the north coast. Treat yourself to a special experience with friends or loved ones. We were blessed with the perfect weather. Nearly unheard of on the north coast. Therefore, it's all down hill from here!

We brought our extended family for a week vacation in the Redwoods. Although we didn't all stay at the Sanctuary, it was home base where we cooked and communed together. It was great. Lots of room, great views, beautiful spaces, functional, inviting and even pretty kid friendly. Rental agents were great. Location was perfect for us. The rental description was very accurate. The local market (Murphy's) really is very good; decent selection, good quality, nice people. It's also only a 1/2 hour trip to the Eureka Costco, so you don't really have to bring a lot in. Stop in at the Thomas Kuchel visitor center in the Redwoods National/State Park in Orick to plan your excursions in the area. The rangers there are very helpful even for off-park attractions.

Reviewer Comments:

We came from Maui for a wedding in Trinidad. Location was perfect for us. Until you drive in the driveway, you have no idea that this home will be sprawled along the cliff edge, overlooking the ocean. The view is so fabulous, it's hard to believe it's not ocean front. We found the area super quiet, and the home to feel peaceful and isolated (even though the neighbors aren't that far away). As you enter the home, you're looking straight through the glass with ocean views beyond. The home is laid out with two bedrooms to one end, and the third to the opposite end. Each bedroom feels private, and offers a view of the ocean. The center of the home is a top quality, well equipped kitchen, living room, dining area, all with the same fabulous views. We enjoyed the hot-tub, fire pit, and outdoor seating areas. When the ocean mist rolled in one morning, it didn't last long, but even the fog was beautiful in its own way. Would we stay again? Absolutely! Several of our friends rented other homes in the area, but there is no doubt that Sanctuary House was the the perfect place for us, and would be our top choice for a return visit.
