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 Trinidad and the harbor lights, miles of sweeping swell lines 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 and 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.

A tranquil and beautiful retreat!

Amazing house with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful house for 3 short days. Everything was perfect! The view from all windows and garden is amazing, house itself is very well designed and maintained. It's clear every detail, from soap in the bath to spices in the kitchen was well thought of. Barbara, the lovely owner, is very kind, considerate and helpful. Area offers amazing hikes, great food and wine, and much more. We can't wait to return!

Shellseeker stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks at the Shellseeker. We have stayed here several times before and plan to return. The home is as beautiful inside as the view outside! The owner (Barbara) is extremely gracious and responsive to every need we had. We absolutely love this area and all there is to do here. We love to cook and Shellseeker has everything a cook would need, including spices and a breathtaking view of the ocean and Camel Rock from the kitchen. This is our "home away from home" and our wonderful memories keep us going until we return.

Beautiful home with fantastic views. Barbara the owner is fantastic, with great communication and service. She did a great job on her home. The heated floors in the master bathroom was a great bonus. This house has everything you need. We will be back.

Everything we had hoped for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We live in San Jose area and wanted to take the long weekend to make a mini family vacation out of it. The property was perfect overlooking the ocean and had all the amenities we needed for it to be comfortable and the beautiful surrounding were great. The property looked quite new and well maintained. We enjoyed the BBQ and the fireplace. Barbara, the owner was so nice. She offered us the best tips to make our trip perfect. She told us what all we should cover both in Humboldt as well as in Redwood State parks. She also provided us additional info about the lagoons etc that would have otherwise been hard for us to come by. Do not waste your money on expensive hotels etc. this place offers you everything.
