Beautiful views! Plenty of space for family. Big kitchen. About 2 miles to Trinidad town for groceries and fishing charter boat. Both the property manager and the owner took great care of us!

Reviewer Comments:

Two nice bedrooms with 4 more beds shoehorned into what was once one lower bedroom. We were a party of 5 and I thought that Max capacity unless you had 4 young children for the cramped lower room. Actual Address was ___ Place but the Company representing the home provided ___ loop and ___ Rd instead, making locating the home difficult. They seemed oblivious when it was brought to their attention. Main bathroom toilet backed up on the 2nd day of our 2 day stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Alegria Del Mar was a fabulous stop on our way around Northern California. The home was well appointed, clean, with plenty of space for our party and lots of fluffy white towels! The grounds were beautiful with perennials and plants in abundance. Had a fabulous sunset view. Kitchen table was perfect for eating in and game night. Two sinks made clean up a breeze and the addition of the dishwasher helped. Wonderful stay! Note: We were hoping that we would somehow be able to walk to the beach from here. You can't. The home is on a cliff and you can't get to the Scenic Drive unless you drive. Not an issue for us, but thought I'd mention. It's a short drive and worth it to take a trip down to the beautiful beaches of Trinidad.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and the mention that there is no beach access directly from the house.. Moonstone beach is mere minutes away. It's a great spot for surfing and kids!

Reviewer Comments:

The Alegria del Mar Ocean Views house was a perfect stay for our Chicago family to visit. The house is equipped with everything travelers need to enjoy a home away from home, including a dishwasher! (This must have been recently added.) We went ocean fishing at Trinidad our first day and caught more than enough fish to cook for several meals. Our favorite parts of the home were the downstairs walkout to the quaint patio and the glider chair facing the corner of windows, overlooking the ocean. We didn't notice the binoculars until our last day--bummer! Because we had two young kids, we appreciated the small bucket of toys and books. The house binder outlines everything visitors need to know about the home, including local attractions and restaurants. The house is beautifully decorated, creating a comfortable atmosphere. Something that may be of importance to visitors is that one of the bedrooms (two twins) is more like an alcove with a curtain used for privacy. This wasn't a problem for our family but may be for others who are expecting four private bedrooms. The location is private and secluded. While there are a few neighbors, the layout and landscaping of the proper creates a feeling that no one else is around. While the location is in Trinidad, it is not necessarily near the town so visitors must drive to town, restaurants, beaches, etc... Overall, we loved our stay!

This is an absolutely amazing place. After the first day we wished we had planned for more days here. The view down the coast was visual therapy, the gardens and landscaping were beautiful and the hummingbirds were constant entertainment. The house is gorgeous with high-end woodwork and furniture throughout. The kitchen was well laid out and easy to use. We really hope to be back someday.
