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.

Because both of our kids are studying at Humboldt State, my husband and I wanted to rent a home close by. We had a very relaxing stay at this beautiful and peaceful sanctuary. The views were breathtaking. It was also great to be able to make some delicious meals in the very well appointed kitchen. Thank you!

We had a marvelous time. Great Thanksgiving. A couple of small items.....The hot water is not very hot. The air heating system temperature on the heating thermostat was difficult or impossible to adjust. The beds in the secondary bedrooms are small. Should be Queen size at a minimum. Overall, we love the house!

Owner's Response: Sorry you had heat trouble. It is radiant floor heating-not air- so it heats differently and takes a bit longer to come up to temperature. We are totally re-doing the boiler system First week of January so there should be NO issues in the future. The home features 1 king, 2 queen, and 2 twin/bunk beds for eight. It's a great home and glad we have a spot for you and your family right next door during Thanksgiving time! Please remember quick calls to the manager will help solve issues guests may be having and help everyone use the home features to their fullest capacity! We love to do walk throughs for all our guests to ensure they know where everything is and how to use the amenities.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband escorted myself, my Mom & my Sister to experience the Redwood Forest. We stayed 4 nights at the Sanctuary. We all Loved this house! The pictures do not do it justice. The property is Beautiful & the Views Breathtaking! The home is very clean & well laid out. We used all three bedrooms each with their own bathroom & very private. We had a fire in the fire pit every night & enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. The house does not have air conditioning so we needed to sleep with the patio door open for a cool breeze. Being from N.Y.C. this was difficult for me. I am a custom to locking windows & doors & putting the air conditioner on & since the doors & windows do not have screens I was worried about critters coming in. However I Loved the fresh breeze & hearing the ocean. My fears quickly went away after the first night. We hiked the Rockefeller Redwood State Park, Patrick's Point, Prairie Creek & visited Trees of Mystery. All were Awesomely Amazing! We ate at the Lighthouse Cafe for lunch & had dinner at Larrupins Restaurant & the Moonstone Grill. All three places had Great People, Service & Food. The rest of the time we cooked at the house. I would Definitely Recommend this home all four of us had a Wonderful Experience! P.S. us dog lovers Absolutely Loved the Orange Cat; who showed us around when we arrived & was waiting for us to return from our daily adventures! Thank you!!

Reviewer Comments:

This was one of the most beautiful homes I've ever stayed in. Architecturally it is just a stunning house, with nothing spared as far as structure, furniture, views, bathrooms and lighting. Everything worked perfectly, was immaculately clean. Only three drawbacks. 1) Neighbors cat constantly found it's way into the house and onto the master bed. 2) the platform that sticks out at the foot of the Master's bed, it so poorly designed that both my husband and I stubbed out toes on it and he actually fell and twisted his ankle. You just had to remember it was there. 3) No HBO, so no Game of Thrones Sunday night. No premium channels at all. At this price, we feel there should be. Other than that my only suggestion is, DO NOT follow Google maps which says to get off at Westhaven and take the 3 miles of dangerous Scenic drive to Baker Ranch from there. Treacherously narrow at points where it is a single lane, potholes and dirt road at times. Go two short exits further to Trinidad and take 1.3 mile Scenic drive coming from the opposite direction, which is better paved and actually takes less time and Baker Ranch is on your left then. Also, they say to drive to the second driveway, but it is not well lit and we actually had a hard time finding it. It's just that the lockbox is over by the garbage pails in the back of the house. So coming in the front we had a hard time finding it, but there was always someone you could call to help with questions. There was no one to meet us at the time of arrival, which gave me pause, but it ended up that things were self explanatory and we didn't need the walk through. All in all, we couldn't have wished for a better place to spend the weekend. Just a fabulous house. If I came back to this neck of the woods, I'd stay here again without a doubt.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Ann for having such a nice time at the house and glad you liked everything! We do provide our recommended driving instructions in our correspondence because that route that GPS takes you on is a bit sketchy. Hope to see you again in the future as this really is a great place to spend time with family and friends! (PS: The orange kitty is looking for kids to snuggle with as they are always feeding and playing with it. We have tried to keep it away but past guests keep loving on it so it just won't!)

Reviewer Comments:

Our two sons and their wives met us at this house to celebrate my husbands 75th. It was a total surprise that I had been planning for a year. When he walked into this house he said "WOW". If it weren't so far away we would definitely be returning. We were there for a week and saw whales three of those days. The house is well supplied for anything and everything. We went back to the market when we found all the marshmallow and hot dog roasting equipment. There are plenty of warm blankets for snuggling in. We slept with our bedroom door open every night and had a full moon while we were there. It was amazing! I think I found the best house in the area. If you want a view with all of the nicest amenities possible, this is THE house you want. It is really better than the pictures. There is a market nearby. We had a very good lunch at the lighthouse grill and another at Seascape by the pier. The rest of our meals were prepared at the house. There are plenty of pots, pans and dishes. Our son and daughter-in-law collected mussels on the beach below the house and ate them. We visited the redwoods and fern canyon but most of our week was spent at the house. We had a fire in the fire pit every night and the hot tub was used most evenings. This was truly one of our best vacations and at our age we have had many. The house is clean and well maintained.
