Overview

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

Pelican's Nest is located in a quiet neighborhood on a private street. This beautiful home sits in close proximity to the homes adjacent homes so is not well suited for large, noisy gatherings. This home is perfect for small families, or adults looking for a peaceful, relaxing getaway. No garage parking available. There are two compact guest parking spaces on the driveway and one additional parking spot for daytime visitors. No additional street parking available.

This Cape Cod style house is perfect for the book & beach lover. It is in town, above a trail to Indian Beach and boasts sweeping ocean views. Cozy up and read by the wood burning stove, play a game or just take in the seascape below. Pelican’s Nest has a great nautical, beach style décor. This home is whimsical and full of character. The main level offers an open eat in kitchen with large pantry that is a cook's delight. This opens to the living, dining room, and newly rebuilt deck so one can cook while taking in the ocean views. The great room also has oak floors, a picnic style dining table, sofa & chairs and a flat-screen T.V. Both bedrooms have Tempurapedic beds. The second bedroom and bathroom with tub/shower are on the main floor. This bedroom has a queen bed, small lots of books and is very cozy. Upstairs is a large master bedroom & bathroom with a romantic balcony to take in the sweeping ocean views below. This room has bamboo floors, a wet bar, very small T.V. and ocean views even from the bathtub/shower! The large bathroom also serves as a closet/dressing room and has a fun play loft for older children (accessible by ladder not suitable for young children). The garden offers a lovely meditation bench overlooking the coastline. All of this beauty and comfort plus your pets are welcome too! Enjoy some fun in the garage with a pool table that also converts into a ping pong table.

*Please Note: The owners of Pelican's Nest have their own private retreat below the property. They like to think of it as their "Writer's Workshop". Since they live in nearby Arcata, they occasionally retreat to their workshop during the day but will not bother you during your vacation. They are very friendly and if you should see them coming or going please feel free to say hello and ask them any questions about their home or the greater Trinidad area. They have great stories to share!

Reviewer Comments:

Could not get the house we usually rent so took this one. Only negative s: tiny tvs and poor lighting in lr. Also, materials in welcome basket were outdated, i.e., 2015 tide tables, not 2016. Otherwise, very pleasant stay.

This was a perfect way to celebrate my husband's birthday. We spent 4 relaxing days and nights in this home overlooking the ocean! We really enjoyed it so much! The views were awesome! So many interesting books to read!Spotlessly clean. Close to everything! We went on so many great hikes! We were happy we could bring our dog too. A very positive experience. Thanks so much! We would definitely stay here again. To be expected a few worn furniture items and the pool table needed a little repair. But it rated a grade of "A" in our opinion! Management was helpful and the owner was helpful and gave us valuable information on our stay in the area.

Beautiful Location House Needs Repair

Reviewer Comments:

The location is wonderful, beautiful view and very quiet. The beds were very comfortable. If you like books, there are plenty. On the flip side, the house has some wood rot issues and smells very musty. The downstairs bedroom advertised as "cozy" is dark, cold, with a sour smell and is right by the front door and garage entry. The upstairs bedroom is lovely, but the bathroom is difficult to use, especially for a woman trying to put on cosmetics (tiny little mirrors and no counter space at sink). I ended up using the small downstairs bathroom that had a normal sink/counter and shower and had to drag things up and down the stairs. We brought a pot and pan based on previous review and were glad - for the price being charged a decent set of stainless steel pots is needed. Also, the glasses all had lip marks on them, so I felt compelled to wash everything before I used it - not so great for conserving water. The private trail to the beach was closed, but no sign until halfway down the trail, so we had to hike back up and over to the light house to gain access. Would be nice to let guests know this. The Redwoods are enchanting, Patrick's Point State Park is a must see, and check out the local grocery before you go elsewhere, they are great and may have everything you need.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your feedback and will share with the owners. We have never received comments about the needing a larger mirror for the upstairs bathroom. I will look into getting a new set up stainless steel pots. Guests are responsible for running the dishwasher and putting dishes away so I apologize that the last guests appear to have not done a good job washing them. I will ask our housekeeping staff to check these items out between stays. We just had the downstairs carpet cleaned so musty smell should not be an issue. The trail had been marked as closed at the top not sure why that sign is gone but I will be sure to include this information for future guests. I am glad you enjoyed the location and found the beds comfortable. -Jonna

Reviewer Comments:

The location of this house was ideal. You really can't get any better! The home was clean but due to it being older there was a musty smell upstairs and definitely a slight smell of dog which you should expect with a pet friendly home. We left the doors/windows open at all times to smell the ocean. The home was cleaned well but because it is well worn it doesn't feel sparkling clean. And, having a Murphy bed in the bathroom is a bit odd but I'm OK with a funky beach home. Character is good. I wouldn't rule out staying here again. It was comfortable enough. The rental agency was great. And, again, you can't beat the location! We had a great weekend.

My husband and I, and our two dogs stayed at this beautiful house just recently. We loved everything about it! The view off the back deck was glorious and the house was simply wonderful. We walked through town with our dogs and everyone was so friendly. Just a wonderful experience all around. We drove down to the redwoods and they were as beautiful and amazing as we had remembered them! The only thing we did have to do was fill up the propane bottle for the bbq, as it was empty. We had bbq almost every night we were there. Had a wonderful anniversary trip!!

Owner's Response: What a great place to celebrate an anniversary! I apologize that the propane tank was not full and that you didn't call us to come deliver a fresh tank. Our housekeeping staff is supposed to monitor propane tanks to ensure they are always full. I will discuss this with our housekeeping manager. Please visit us again! -Reid

Pelican's Nest is a lovely retreat in a quaint, litlle ocean side town. The location couldn't be better for views, tidepools and nice cafes. A short drive to Redwood National Park and a restful home when the day is done.
