2 nights of whale watching right from the deck! Beautiful and breathtaking! Trinidad is a quaint and friendly little town that's a must visit. The house is very clean, maintained and equipped with everything we needed! We would recommend the Garage House to anyone and hope to visit again.

We loved the house the view was amazing. We have enjoyed this vacation, seeing the whales, sea lions, the massive redwood trees. If we ever make it back we would differently want to stay again in this home.

Despite all of the amazing reviews the garage house still managed to exceeded our expectations. The pictures just don't do the view and location justice. The house itself is very tastefully decorated and well stocked with everything you need. The town of Trinidad was a very pleasant surprise and Murphy's grocery store in Trinidad is only 5 minutes away and they have all of the essentials that you need including top quality food.

Visited last year, again this year

Another wonderful visit away from the Sac Valley heat. Three glorious cool days sitting on the deck taking in the ocean view. Last year, it was sunny and warm; this year, foggy and cool. Both wonderful when you've been broiling in the Valley heat.

Perfect vacation headquarters for Wildlife, Marine life, Redwoods and Giant Sequoias!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here! Met all of our expectations! Highlight for me, the deck! I'm an early riser and enjoyed my mornings drinking coffee and watching the surfers, birds, harbor seals and we were fortunate enough to see a Gray Whale our last morning!!!! We also did some hikes and checked out the Redwoods and Giant Sequoias only a quick drive away! Love this place!!!

Relaxation at every turn

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at several VRBOs on the northcoast, but this was hands down our favorite.

The view was amazing, whether the weather was sunny or foggy. One evening we sat on the deck and watched the sun wink out as it dipped below the horizon. Another evening we enjoyed watching the fog roll in.

The house has a very open and airy feeling to it. Even my husband couldn't stop remarking on it. The large bay window in the living room/kitchen area lets in lots of light. While summer evenings are cool on the coast, we found that the few hours of sunlight during the afternoon heated the house to a delightful temperature that lasted through the night and morning fog. I can't remark enough how cheery the house was on the inside. My husband also loved the slate bathroom.

The outside was delightful. The house is on a very quiet street and we had a great sense of privacy. The Van Alten's have provided a number of seating options giving different views of the ocean and the property. The lower decking is showing some signs of weathering. I'm sure the winter winds and rains give it quite a beating.

I had assumed from one of the pictures that there was a stairway down to the ocean, but that was all on me. Once we got there my husband joked it would have to be a very long, very steep, ladder. However, beach access is only a short drive away. For easy access I'd recommend Moonstone Beach (also a great place to find sand dollars at low tide!)

The owners provided bionoculars in both the living room and the bedroom, especially helpful if you happen to be there when the whales are migrating.

The Garage House is a lovely couple's getaway, and a great jumping off point for sights on the coast or in the redwoods.
