Overview

Westhaven-Moonstone House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Reviewer Comments:

Quiet and peaceful in a beautiful setting, that is how I would describe West of Haven. The house was charming and the gardens were lovely. We were even greeted by fresh cherries, homemade bread and jam. The kitchen was even stocked with anything I could have ever needed to cook with. (Which was perfect as I have food allergies which makes eating out a bit more difficult.) I would definitely come back, although I would plan to stay longer. West of Haven is quite the "home away from home."

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review of the West of Haven. The owners of this lovely home are quite hospitable; I am glad you had the opportunity to delight in their homemade treats. As they are people who love to cook, I am pleased you were happy with their stocked kitchen. "Home away from home" is a perfect description of this rental. Thank you for booking with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals; I do hope you will get a chance to stay here with us again.

The house is a rustic in the woods house that is wonderfully set in the woods. No traffic, Quiet, It was great to walk each morning and evening and listen to the birds and woods. The beach is a short less than five minute drive and sunrises and sunsets scenes are awesome.

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.
