  • Great Home in Trinidad!

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Parker Creek Cottage is a great home for 2-4 people. It was immaculate when we arrived and nicely stocked. The beds are very comfortable and it has a heater as well as a wood stove if needed. The yard states it's fully fenced, although there is a small area (about 7') next to the front gate that is not fenced at all. We always bring a portable fence because of our dog, and that fixed the problem. Most of the fence is 4' chain link. The deck is fabulous, has a nice view of beautiful trees and the trail down to Indian beach is gorgeous, fairly steep with stairs and takes about 5 minutes. It's a very nice beach with views of Trinidad Harbor and off the beaten path, so very quiet. I would definitely stay at this home again and bring my dog."

  • everything we needed!

    "Loved loved loved this house!!! came here for a family reunion, 9 adults, 2 kids. the house was plenty big. loved the big landing in the pool for the kids to play on. the built in bbq was awesome and provided us another place to eat at outdoors. i also liked that the there was a separate sitting area in the back away from the pool that the kids could run around on the grass. house was clean, comfy, spacious. they even provided shampoo/conditioner/body wash AND they had double washer/dryers and provided laundry detergent! everything u could ask for. id definitely stay here again. sad it is already booked for the weekend we need in august."

  • Excellent Vaca

    "Renting this property from Jeannette & Scott was a pleasure. They were courteous, thorough, and prompt when responding any inquiries and with returning my security deposit. The property itself honestly doesn't have much curb appeal but don't be fooled. The interior is very cozy and well decorated with ample room for plenty of family members and friends. Having a pool and a grill outside in the patio area was also a godsend. The neighborhood itself is quaint and quiet. The location (not close to the beach or Gaslamp) was my primary misgiving when initially booking this rental. However, it turned out to be minor issue. Using Lyft and Uber to get around made car-less travel a piece of cake. And it was particularly nice to return from a night out to a spacious and quiet house, away from the bustling downtown. The only real thing that I could say is lacking would be an updated downstairs television (the set downstairs is quiet old). However, I spent so much time in the pool that I barely even touched the TV. Overall, it was a great rental to stay at and the owners were excellent. Highly recommend!"

  • Wonderful place!

    "We arrived on a Friday and were immediately impressed by the gorgeous surroundings and very comfortable cottage. We were two couples and two giant dogs and there was plenty of room. The place felt remote but it was only a short walk with the dogs (2 miles) to the heart of Los Olivos to a number of wineries and tasting rooms. The owners were easy to reach if we had any questions and are just the nicest people! I'm hoping to visit often enough that they'll adopt me! The house has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. I'd recommend it to all of my friends as long as they take me along, too!"

California Travel Tips

Our country’s largest state by population, and third largest by area, is home to a wonderful diversity in cultures, climate and landscapes. Here are the top sites to see and things to do in California by region:

The Bay Area

The Bay Area is best known as a free-spirited locale that is home to the biggest tech giants in Silicon Valley, including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft. It’s anchored by two major cities - San Jose to the south and hilly San Francisco, a major tourist destination on the north end. Here are the top things to do while you’re in the Bay Area:

- Visit the sites in San Francisco. You can’t miss the iconic Golden Gate Bridge - bike across it, walk or take an open-air tour bus to experience the massive bridge in all its glory. Visitors can also take a ferry and tour spooky Alcatraz Island. Other attractions include shopping on Fisherman’s Wharf, checking out the sea lions on Pier 39 and immersing yourself in science at The Exploratorium and California Academy of Sciences. If you’re traveling here in the summer, bring a jacket! SF can be blazing hot and then overcast and chilly within the same day as the famed fog rolls in.

- Head north across the Golden Gate to see the giant redwoods in Muir Woods and check out some excellent wineries in the charming Sonoma and Napa valleys.

- Visit the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and nearby beaches San Carlos Beach Park and Pebble Beach.

- Be one with nature at Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevadas or climb the famous Half Dome and El Capitan mountains.

- Go skiing or participate in other adventure sports in Lake Tahoe, just north of Yosemite.

Southern California

SoCal, as it’s sometimes called, is one of the sunniest and most celeb-studded places in the country. There’s plenty to do and see in and around Los Angeles and San Diego, the two major cities in the area. Here are the top spots:

- If you’re traveling with kids around L.A., head to Disneyland in Anaheim - the only Disney Park built under the direction of The Man Behind the Magic himself. Or, check out Knotts Berry Farm, a perennial childhood favorite that first opened in 1940. There are roller coasters, kids’ rides, games and plenty of fun for everyone. Don’t miss dining at Mrs. Knott’s California Marketplace for the renowned fried chicken, biscuits and boysenberry pie.

- L.A. is also the epicenter of the entertainment industry. Check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame, take a tour of Universal Studios and hike in the area surrounding the Hollywood Sign.

- Catch a Lakers game or popular concert at the Staples Center

- Take a hike in the Joshua Tree National Park in the beautiful Mojave Desert.

- Southern California is also home to some excellent festivals: Coachella Music Fest in Coachella Valley, the annual L.A. County Fair and the Newport Beach Film Festival, not to mention the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. If you want to see some major celebrities, hang out in one of the cafes or restaurants on Rodeo Drive.

- If you’re traveling with kids in San Diego, Seaworld or the esteemed San Diego Zoo are excellent options, and Legoland in nearby Carlsbad will provide hours of fun.

- The valleys in central California are less-populated than the coastal areas, but one must-see is the Hearst Castle. It’s an ornate, palatial, 165-room home built for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and set among 127 acres of gardens in San Simeon, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
