About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Oceanfront Home with Views of Local Surf Break

Welcome to the ShellSeeker, a luxurious, very private oceanfront home perched on an elevated bluff overlooking Camel Rock, and the Trinidad Coast. The 180 degree view encompasses miles of sweeping swell lines, Trinidad and the harbor lights, and distant Humboldt County shorelines.

Experience true Humboldt County Coastal Living, and enjoy the Redwood Coast in first-class style. With the ShellSeeker as your base camp take the opportunity to discover a hidden side of Humboldt. The ShellSeeker is spacious and efficient, yet elegantly simple. There’s a view of the surf from every room, a well-equipped kitchen, deluxe bathrooms, and pillow soft queen beds. Study the sea from the bluff, the sofa, the kitchen or the master bedroom's built-in and roomy window seat.

Without a doubt, the ShellSeeker’s claim-to-fame is the birds-eye-view of the surf at Camel Rock, Trinidad harbor and its privacy. From the moment you open the door to its breathtaking views, an air of peace and tranquility surrounds you.

No noise here. Just sounds of the sea, the bell and whistle buoys in Trinidad Harbor, or the ocean breeze. Few neighbors and plenty of boat or RV parking. The interior design of the home is elegant and comfortable with high-end finishes everywhere you look. The open living room includes a fireplace, premium sound system and a large flat-screen TV.

The kitchen is outfitted for 8 and stocked with plenty of cookware, spices, and appliances (and a vita-mix juicer) to inspire even the most modest chefs. Locally roasted organic coffee is always kept stocked.

The bathrooms are like personal, mini-spas. The master includes a blue-water and horizon view from the jacuzzi tub, walk in shower, with heated floors and towel rack and premium finishes. No details were left out by the designer.

You can’t escape the ocean’s grip from any room of the house. Even on a chilly summer day just pick a room, grab a blanket, and cozy up next to the window and watch the whales pass by, the surfers down below, or the fishermen troll up and down the coast. You can see the lights of Arcata and Eureka to the south and clear down to Cape Mendocino on a good day. To the North, Trinidad Head frames in the Bay and Harbor view. Enjoy a fresh salmon barbecue from the patio as you unwind from an evening surf or sunset walk on the beach.

Or if you are a surfer, you will appreciate witnessing how the tides influence the break and knowing when the time is right to paddle out. Be the first in the line-up, or wait until moments before sunset to have the waves all to yourself.

The ShellSeeker sleeps 4 in beds and includes 2 extra fold-out sleeping pads.

Please call us before booking to confirm reservations. Hope to see you soon.
