IMAGINE THE PERFECT LOCATION: OCEANFRONT, SECLUDED AND BREATHTAKING VIEWS...

ARE YOU READY TO INDULGE YOURSELF?

Then picture yourself listening to the roar of the ocean as you watch the waves crash on the offshore rocks. Relax in the hot tub while you unwind on the private 10 acre estate. And soak in the romantic double ended claw-foot tub while you enjoy the welcome basket of wine and chocolates that greet you.

'The best place I've ever been in my entire life!'
-quote we've heard from many guests.

RIGHT ON THE OCEAN: This stunning two bedroom, two bath + loft oceanfront home sits right on the bluff above Pirate’s Cove in picturesque Trinidad. Fully furnished house includes a full kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi, cable and flat panel plasma TV. The master bedroom features a California King bed. Bedroom #2 has a queen (Captain’s) bed. The loft has a queen bed and a full sized bed along with a ‘periscope skylight dome’ for star gazing and ocean viewing. All rooms have ocean views.

VERY WELL APPOINTED including such amenities as Harney & Sons tea, Keurig and Peets coffee, Aveda shampoo & conditioner, laundry detergent, firewood, his and hers Egyptian cotton bathrobes, etc. Lever handles throughout. Old growth redwood floors in the bedrooms and master bathroom. Redwood dining room table. Campfire pit right on the bluff. 100′ zip line for the kids!

SECLUDED YET CLOSE: This is not in a neighborhood or on a main street but in a private 10 acre oceanfront estate with gated access. It is on quiet, historic Stagecoach road. Yet it’s only 1/2 mile to the top-rated Larrupin restaurant and 2 miles to the center of Trinidad with restaurants, art galleries, shopping, day spa & massage.

IN THE HEART OF REDWOOD COUNTRY: Centrally located with redwood parks to the north and south (less than 4 miles from Patrick’s Point State Park). 15 minutes to Arcata (ACV) airport (free airport transfers starting on April 2nd). Ten minutes to the Trinidad Cher-Ae Heights casino which features minor acts such as Starship, Everclear, Tony Orlando and Skid Row.

WHALE WATCHING options exist from the house, deck, bluff and beach. Nearby sea lions can be heard (and sometimes smelled!) and can be seen to the north. Although we see whales on a regular basis, we recently started seeing seals and sea lions in the cove directly below too.

A PLACE TO MAKE MEMORIES. Weather you're a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family looking for a spectacular retreat, the Oceanfront Chalet has it all.

The loft has been painted with a unique ‘infinity perspective’. In reality, the room is only about 8′ wide x 25′ long, but the illusion makes the room appear to continue forever (see photo). This is the kind of effect usually done in a Disneyland or museum type setting and this may be the first time it has been done in a private residence. There is also a window at the far end of the room, but it is concealed as part of the illusion.

Guests have access to the entire home, minus one closet in which we store extra supplies. Guests have complete privacy in this house as YOU ARE RENTING THE ENTIRE HOME. There are no other floors, rooms or sectioned off areas rented out to other parties.

Wild blackberries, huckleberries, and salmon berries abound on the property. Huckleberries can be plucked while in the hot tub. Wild mint grows on the south side of the Chalet.

Owners are on site and can provide free airport transfers from ACV and concierge services.

Owner operated, No admin/booking fees.

Local attractions: Within a short drive, you have access to many scenic attractions including Trinidad Head Trail, the HSU Marine Lab, Agate Beach, Redwood National Park, Prairie Creek State Park and Fern Canyon with its herds of Roosevelt elk.

Other activities include: exploring Humboldt State University and Arcata, Old Town Eureka and the Eureka Waterfront, the Victorian Village of Ferndale, and the College of the Redwoods. Charter boats are available for fishing, sightseeing and whale watching excursions (there is good whale watching directly from the house). Trinidad harbor also offers excellent kayaking. The Trinity, Klamath, Eel and Mad Rivers offer world class trout, steelhead and salmon fishing as well as river rafting and kayaking.

Excellent restaurants abound in Trinidad, Arcata, and Eureka. Our personal favorites include The Larrupin Cafe, Seascape, Alice's and The Lost Coast Brewery and Cafe. For surfers, Trinidad beaches are the preferred location in Humboldt county. In winter, Horse mountain provides access for cross country skiing and snow fun less than an hour away.

Wine tasting can be found at Bergeron Winery & Moonstone Crossing winery in downtown Trinidad. Tide pooling, Bird Watching, Marine Mammals, Art Galleries, Gift Shops, Trinidad Museum, Sailing, Windsurfing, Camping, Horseback Riding, Cher-Ae Heights Casino, Fishing, Crabbing, Clamming, Beach combing, Cycling, Rock Climbing, Swimming and Agate Hunting are other activities to choose from. For golfers, there are two courses within a 30 minute radius.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are an active couple in our fifties. Debbie has a medical background and Mike has an aviation background. After looking all over, we decided Trinidad was the best place in the world to live. The ocean views can't be beat. Trinidad is always cool and has world class views. It's small and uncrowded with no traffic, yet just big enough to have a grocery store and restaurants. And there's an airport only 15 minutes away. So, after vacationing here for ten years we decided to retire here. We moved to Trinidad in 2010 and in 2012 we purchased an oceanfront property with a guest house. The Oceanfront Chalet is family owned and managed. The owners are on site in the adjacent house to the south.

Why the Owner Chose Trinidad:
This is located on historic Stagecoach Rd. Stagecoach road has private estates that average 5 - 10 acres in size. It is not a main road and there are no subdivisions. There is no freeway noise. So it is very quiet and does not have the packed in neighbors that the town has. This particular estate is 10 acres. It has awesome, panoramic ocean views (along with the constant roar of the ocean). Our private drive has gated access and the Chalet is about 400 yards in from Stagecoach road so you can enjoy a secluded vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is the only vacation rental in California that has it all: Private beach, Private waterfall, Panoramic views, Creek, Hot tub, Claw-foot tub, Wifi, Zipline, Campfire pit, Loft. The Oceanfront Chalet - Your best choice for an awesome vacation!
