It was dirty. There was mold (pink kind) growing on the bottoms of shower curtains and edge of tub. 90% of the windows couldn’t be opened bc either they were broken or just solid glass. In the master none of the windows opened, so you couldn’t get a sea breeze at all. There we’re definitely electrical issues, too. I videoed the lights flickering in the bathroom AFTER you turned them off. In the third bedroom the bed rollers were so loose when you’d get in bed it rolled and by morning the bed would be in the middle of the room, I finally figured out to put the small rugs at the rollers edge to stop it. The oven was a joke, you couldn’t use it bc the temperature markings are worn off with age. Also, for supposedly being extra clean for Covid, there was dust and fingerprints everywhere. The throw pillows were gross (those fuzzy ones, they were matted) and the furniture didn’t have arms so you couldn’t just kick back and relax. The TV system was stupid, they should’ve just said if you don’t have subscriptions don’t bother using. Two positives - the view from the master (which you couldn’t really appreciate bc windows don’t open) and the sauna, if you’re into that. We’ve been to Trinidad many times and love it, but there are MANY other properties in this price range that are a LOT better. Bc of Covid I left planning a little late, now I know why this one was open. Will not be using Vacasa again if this is representative of their properties. I have pics of all my complaints if they’ll let me post.
Manager response:
Thank you for telling us about your visit, Christa. We are so sorry the home was not as clean as it should have been. Please do not hesitate to reach out about things like this so we can address them right away for you. We appreciate you bringing the flickering light to our attention so we can get an electrician scheduled to check it. Hopefully we can host you again!

The best thing about this home is it’s location and view of the Pacific! The view from inside the home and outside from the yard are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun and the sunsets. This home is very very clean!!! It has everything a family needs to feel at home. We were so comfortable and sorry our time has come to an end.

Beautiful ocean view, close to national parks and beaches, comfortable bedrooms, accommodating. I can't say it enough, don't let the pictures of the outside fool you, this place is cute as heck.

The house was perfect for our vacation. It was very spacious and had all that we needed. The location is great to explore the Redwoods. Thanks!

Nice place!
Paul C. Jul 2020
Enjoyed the large home, well equipped kitchen, sauna and location. Beds were comfy. Grill came in handy as many of the restaurants were closed. Convenient drive to the parks.
Would stay here again!

We loved the location....close to beach, redwoods and town. Large rooms and comfortable beds. We are hi hoping to return to this rental in the future.

I would love to live there! It is comfortable, pretty, and great location! The beach is close. Trinidad is only a couple of miles for shopping and restaurants. We went horseback riding in Orick, hiking in prairie creek and Patricks pointe. It was a wonderful house and fun vacation!

My family said everything was good. They loved it. They said the beds were very comfy. Our granddaughter in law said, "I want to buy this house."

the pictures of the inside of the house shown in vrbo is what the house actually looks like inside. It is a older home that has been maintained. The sauna was a nice feature. The views from the side yard and front window shows the beach below that is a short drive to get there. The house is right off hwy 101.

Love the north coast! My family and I spent four days up here and there was plenty to do. Went inland a bit for some river fun and warmer weather.
. Jul 2019
House was clean and well decorated. The sunken living room with doors that closed it off was perfect to keep our little exploring toddler 'contained' in a safe area. The views were amazing and the neighborhood was quiet. Our host went out of her way to get us a pack and play as well. Great experience!

We loved this house, which lives large. We are gardeners and especially enjoyed the herb plot and the numerous flowering plants that attracted hummingbirds. We will definitely put this place at the top of our list for our next visit to Trinidad!

We were very happy with the house! Gorgeous views from the living room and master bedroom. Comfy beds! 3 large bedrooms, plenty of space and comfy seating in the living room, dining room is huge, plenty of space at the table, kitchen washroom and laundry all roomy. Super clean, well equipped. Very central located between Clam Beach and Trinidad. Short distance to the market, coffee house, restaurants, lighthouse and the beaches.

It's a nice bungalow. The house has the feel of an earlier age of California. It's unpretentious but a very cozy spot for a family or group. Convenient to the redwoods and other attractions both north and south. The neighborhood is very quiet. We enjoyed the residence and would use it again.
. Dec 2018
We stayed a short 3 nights and could not possibly take advantage of all the amenities provided. Bedrooms were big and comfortable. The Master bedroom has a beautiful view of Clam Beach County Park from about a mile away. Kitchen was well provisioned with all necessary utensils. Pictures of the rooms accurately depict their size, maybe slightly bigger than I expected. Note that there are 2 full baths, 1 near all bedrooms(no master bath) and one at the other end of the house. We'll be back another time! Thanks
