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!)

Please note: In order to accommodate a broad audience at this accommodation, the nightly rate listed is for 4 guests. If your party, including children, has more than this number, please select that when booking or notify the booking agent as the nightly rate increases by $10 per guest. Thank you so much for noting this. We look forward to accommodating you on the Redwood Coast.

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.

Reviewer Comments:

Quiet location away from the local hubbub, and a million dollar view of the southern beach. Lovely landscaping provides several spots for quiet contemplation while watching the waves roll in and light play with the evergreens. The home itself is perfect. Well furnished, comfortable, easily heated with a woodstove or cooled with open windows. Loved it, will be on the top of my list next time we come to the Redwood National and State Forests.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was wonderful! It does need a deep clean in the corners. The seat cushions on the dining chairs need replacing. The coffee pot leaked water onto counter. I contacted you about it after we left.
