Westhaven-Moonstone House Rental Photos and Description

3.5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 9

Handmade custom home two miles south of Trinidad on the bluff with rare south- and west-facing ocean views, gazing sixty miles down the coast to Cape Mendocino, westernmost tip of California. A "moving postcard" with a dozen lines of breaking waves, a pristine perspective where forest meets sea.

Alegria is a two-story, two thousand square foot house on three-quarters of an acre featuring hand-hewn salvaged Redwood beams, cherry window sash, red oak floors, natural cedar siding, and cathedral ceilings. Sleeps up to nine in two large bedrooms, a smaller bedroom/sunroom and a guest space with bunk beds. Two full baths, one with a soaking tub, spacious kitchen, and handmade cherry dining table that will seat eight.This home does not come equipped with a dishwasher. Extensive Monet-style secluded gardens and patio with Adirondack chairs and seaside perch 250 feet above the sea. Access to spectacular beaches, coves and offshore sea stacks via community trail. (No direct access from house. We are on a bluff overlooking the ocean with the fabulous views!)

Two minutes and two miles to Trinidad markets and restaurants, one minute off freeway but an oceanic soundscape. Five to ten minute drive to expansive beaches, parks, lagoons, hiking trails, and secluded coves, and 30 minutes to Prairie Creek State and National Redwood Park. A truly international house belonging to a family of explorers, featuring folk art collected the world over and photographs from trips to remote corners of the earth. A one-of-a-kind treasure -- warm, cozy and inviting with a bird's eye view of infinite horizons.

Please, 24 hour notice for reservations through March 2016.

Reviewer Comments:

Since the first time I saw a picture of someone driving a car through a tree in my 8th grade Geography class, I knew I had to do it! Forty years later my sister, brother-in-law, husband and I finally make the trip from Ohio. We spent five days in the Alegria del Mar house located above the Pacific coast. The house was perfectly located on the ocean and close to the National Redwood Forrest Park. The house was homey and comfortable to come home to after a full day of exploring the Forrest, Agate Beach, Clam Beach and the cities of Trinidad and Arcada. It was so calming and peaceful to wake up to see the waves on Clam Beach. The house was clean and accommodating. I would book it again if I'm ever lucky enough to go back to Trinidad.
