‘Magical’ has been the response from past guests at this custom, hand-built home nestled at the end of a private lane among the giant redwoods. Surrounded by a private yard with lush, beautiful gardens, this quaint and unique artist's home features custom woods, antique furnishings, and original floor art. You may be inspired to bask near the Japanese maple with the gentle Humboldt breeze soothing your inner being. While the serenading morning birds may inspire you to play a tune on the family piano once owned by the 22nd Governor of California, James Gillette at the turn of the century.

What's nearby:
Walk over to the Westhaven Center for the Arts for classes, exhibits, and live entertainment. Most visitors like to go hiking in the redwoods, at the nearby state parks, along the coast, or on the many private trails. This rental is just a mile-and-a-half walk from the world-famous Moonstone Beach where you can also dine by the water at Moonstone Grill for amazing food and breathtaking ocean views. And if you want to really explore the forests, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Tall Trees Grove, Prairie Creek, Lost Man Creek, and Trillium Falls, are all about 30 miles north.

My husband and I stayed here for a week with our 2 kids and dog it was on such a magical piece of property that was surrounded by redwood trees and was just a nice walk away from the beach, the house was stocked with everything we needed and more, it was very clean and quite. We stayed in the middle of winter and was very warm and cozy. We will be back soon

we loved the place. we had two dogs, a lab and Australian shepherd. they were totally fine in the yard, lots of room to move. the house is warm and cozy, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need to cook. we would have liked to try the pizza oven outside but never did. great artwork through out, a piano to play, lots of books to read, and the yard is amazing with all different kinds of plants, truly amazing. no wind, so close to the moonstone grill and beach. try it out.

This home is very comfortable....a home away from home. Our only negative to share is that they were having a new roof put on and didn’t warn us ahead of time. It was very loud all day. We weren’t able to rest and take naps.

Loved, loved, loved this artistic and vintage inspired home. Plus the garden is absolutely beautiful! The hosts were gracious, the home was comfortable with all we needed to cook our meals (if desired) and the setting amongst trees and clean air, will bring us back again!

Such a beautiful spot on the coast. The inside was warm and cozy and the outdoor gardens magical! The hosts were very friendly and I will be back!

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed this house. It's got great character with the necessary modern updates. The gardens and surrounding area are beautiful and driving up the coast is amazing. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay at the West of Haven house. Beautifully furnished, with thoughtful touches, a well-stocked kitchen, and a beautiful garden. It's obvious that the owners take pride in their property. We can't wait to stay here again!

We are three Master Gardeners from Oregon and we're amazed with the beautiful gardens. So much in bloom that we haven't even seen on the Oregon coast.

We took the grandkids on a family getaway for Spring Break. They loved everything about the place: the garden, the piano, the art, and the views of Redwoods. It was cozy at night and pretty in the mornings. Close to Trinidad town and many beautiful State parks and beaches, yet private and secluded from the hustle and bustle. Would recommend for those who appreciate art, quiet and nature. A lovely place.

This property was unique, lots of art and antique furniture plus nice amenities. Yard was pretty and well cared for.
The only drawback was a tenants in the upstairs apartment. They were quiet but the fact that they were there and could look down on you if you were out in the backyard made it a less than private experience.
