Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

The property is secluded and in its own beautiful environment lending itself to sheer relaxation. ‘Magical’ is often the response from past guests upon arrival to this custom hand built home nestled in the giant redwoods with private yard and beautiful gardens. Many walking trails meander through the woods including a mile and a half walk to Moonstone Beach. This is a quaint, lovely and unique artist home features custom woods and original floor art. Most of the wall art are original oil paintings by Kahish. The sculpted garden has flowers and fruit trees are worked by Ottavio. You may be inspired to bask near the Japanese maple with the gentle Humboldt breeze soothing your inner being. Most travelers like to go hiking in the redwoods at the nearby state parks along the coast or on the many private trails. The birds often serenade in the morning. They may inspire you to play the family piano once owned by the 22nd Governor of California, James Gillette at the turn of the century. Nestled in the giant redwoods at the end of a private lane. Lovely downstairs, 2 bedroom with a queen bed in each, 1 bath (with claw foot tub & bidet), nice kitchen, living room (with sleeper sofa) & dining room with custom woods and original floor art.

We had a wonderful, Relaxing 3-day stay at West Of Haven. The house was very clean and comfortable, my husband enjoyed playing the piano and I enjoyed taking a relaxing bubble bath in the claw foot tub. The garden and flowers were beautiful and the location was very close to the beach and shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay again!

Lovely, comfortable, pleasantly different, peaceful. Of the places we stayed while doing a road trip along the Oregon-Northern CA coast this was the favorite of the French couple with whom we were traveling--we were very pleased as well.

Reviewer Comments:

The property was perfect for our four-night family get-together as we did two Trinidad beach jaunts, area blackberry-picking, at-home relaxing, meal cooking, Scrabble-playing and a last-night outing to the Trinidad Bay Art & Music Festival. Unfortunately, we forgot to write a message to the owners in their guest log. This lovely couple have nurtured a beautiful retreat setting, provided a few welcome goodies during our stay and visited with us during a laid-back afternoon in their most lovely garden. We so appreciate our stay in their lovely home. Please pass along our grateful thanks to them.

What a beautiful place to spend our time while visiting the Redwood Forest area. The house and gardens were charming. The owners and neighbors were friendly. The town of Trinidad nearby was very convenient with a grocery store, shops, cafe and beaches. We could not have been luckier to find such a wonderful, peaceful location.

Owner's Response: The West of Haven is definitely one of our most charming homes, nestled away in a wooded area with beautiful gardens and flowers. It is off the beaten path enough to feel private, yet so close to the beaches, towns, and highway to get to the Redwood Forest. Thank you for renting with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals and we hope we can accommodate you again in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location for quiet and relaxing at the home. Immaculately clean. Kitchen well stocked and allowed us to make nice dinners every evening. Nice living room and dining area that worked great for playing games and enjoying meals as a multi-generational family. One small thing is that I didn't pay attention to the fact that the shower was one of the tube-types within a claw foot tub. My elderly folks were not able to take any showers for the four days we stayed. Location fairly isolated and does not allow you to walk to any amenities.

Owner's Response: West of Haven house is a great home for those seeking a place near the beaches and off the beaten path. I am glad to hear the home was a relaxing place for you, with exception that the shower setup was not accommodating to your needs. When booking with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals, please call our Reservations in advance to ensure the home is the right fit for the guests during your stay. Thank you again for choosing RCVR, and we do hope you will return to stay with us again.

Map

Most travelers like to go hiking in the redwoods at the nearby state parks along the coast or on the many private trails. Just down the road from the property itself is Moonstone beach and also a fine dining restaurant, Moonstone Grill with bar and spectacular view. West Of Haven Redwood Retreat is very close to everything yet the property is secluded and in its own beautiful environment lending itself to sheer relaxation. The public beaches are plentiful and each one is unique. The pier in Trinidad (only 3 miles north) has a variety of scenes and activities where the Seascape restaurant is located. In the town of Trinidad you can walk on foot to capture breathtaking ocean views. The Trinidad Eatery and the Beachcomber Cafe are near the light house and both excellent places. The Lighthouse Cafe is new and at the entrance of Trinidad. Also in the beginning part of town is a small shopping center with a nice grocery store 'Murphy's Market, the Post Office and new wine tasting room 'Bourgon'. Across the street are 2 gift shops “Trinidad Trading Company” and the “Windandsea Gift Shop”. Trinidad Massage is located next to these shops and can be a place to get pampered with a facial or massage. Trinidad is full of culture with a new library, museum, and artisan's collective art gallery. Every town has an Arts Alive night which is always unique and good fun with music, art openings.
