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.

Reviewer Comments:

We really loved the quiet location, the eclectic decorations, the comfy bed. The kitchen had everything you could need. It was nice having heaters in the bedroom and bathroom to take the chill off in the mornings. We were visiting our kids that live in McKinleyville and plan on returning hopefully soon. Alot of family and friends are interested in staying there after the pictures we took. The yard was a fun place to explore. We found a few cobwebs on some of the wall decorations, but easily overlooked

We really loved your place, was so cozy and felt just like home. The home was decorated just perfect and loved the yard too. Had a sister and her guy over for cocktails before going out to dinner. They loved it too. Thanks to our friends who told us about this wonderful get-a-way. Would recommend it to all our friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing the West of Haven home for your Humboldt Get-away. This home is off the beaten path and somewhat nestled in a forest environment for those looking to enjoy nature and a few days outside of the city. The owners have spent much time on the details of the home decor and garden, so thank you for noticing and appreciating this. Good to hear you heard about this home by recommendation and we hope you will return to stay with us again.

Reviewer Comments:

We'd hoped the home would live up to the advert on the web site and frankly, it surpassed it. Great location, beautiful surroundings, comfortable, clean quarters - one of the nicest places we've ever rented. Everything was super clean and welcoming (kudos to your cleaning people - they are doing an excellent job). The beds were comfortable, the kitchen beyond well-stocked, and the house full of character and Northern CA charm. And the garden - Wow. We spent a lot of time there because it was so soothing and peaceful, with the redwoods all around us, and all the artistic touches of arbors and art work co-mingled. This is definitely a place you want to visit. And come back to again and again. Thanks so much for letting us enjoy this wonderful home.

The pictures and rental description had us hooked from the get-go and lived up to our expectations. The peaceful manicured gardens with all it's nooks and crannies became our heavenly haven following days adventures. Owners Otavio and Kahish were gracias hosts and we're most grateful for their sharing of their healing sanctuary with us.

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.
