What a great spot and phenomenal view, right in the heart of Trinidad’s town. We could walk to the harbor, nearby restaurants and shops. Super easy & quick on/off 101 to explore nearby forests, trails and beaches. Comfy & cozy bed & so peaceful with lovely, quiet neighbors. Watching the sun rise & set over the water made for a peaceful beginning & end to each day. And kudos to the fabulous and helpful property manager, Charlie, who was there to help, whenever we had a question. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this spot👍🏻
Brenda R. Dec 2021
Loved how centrally located it is with a perfect walk to the beach and my favorite restaurants. Very clean and comfortable! Loved the little deck with the ocean view.
Tessa S. Dec 2021
This has amazing ocean views and is in walking distance to restaurants, beaches, hiking, and the grocery store. We are a family of 4 and had plenty of space for a of us & our stuff.

My only complaint was that we stayed here for 9 days and we ended up having to purchase extra toilet paper and dishwasher soap since not enough was provided for us.
Manager response:
Hi Tessa, we're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Buoy Bell and had an awesome beach getaway! We are sorry for any miscommunications regarding the number of paper products that were in the unit upon your arrival. We do provide starter packs of paper products and detergents, and anything required beyond what is provided is the responsibility of the guests. Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback on your experience as helps us to keep improving. We look forward to hosting you for another memorable stay!

This is a nice condo and a great home base for exploring the Redwoods. The views from the kitchen and balcony are awesome. The condo was clean and had everything we needed for a nice 4 day stay.
Rebecca T. Jul 2021
We had a lovely stay at Buoy Bay. This place is all about the location and the view. FANTASTIC. We were right next door to everything and the view is spectacular. It is true that the walls are thin and we were careful to walk quietly but these are considerations we would have to take into account in just about any hotel stay so not a big deal. The kitchen is less stocked then I am used to so bring salt, pepper, cooking oil and travel mugs (the coffee shop does not do carry out cups!). For the price, this place can not be matched.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Rebecca. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit! While the kitchen is stocked with all the cookware and utensils needed to prepare meals, food and other pantry items like coffee, spices, and oils are not typically stocked in the home. We encourage guests to plan ahead if they anticipate needing additional items during their stay. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future!
Reta R. Jun 2021
Loved the view from the kitchen table and the deck. We were a short walk to the ocean with wonderful hikes for various views.
Laeron R. May 2021
The views are idyllic. Cozy, comfy, clean, A stroll to the grocery store, short hike around the bay, great restaurant next door, park overlooking the bay, a quick drive to Redwoods state park hiking and Famous Fern canyon and beach.
Thomas W. May 2021
Everything was as it should be. Excellent.
Lainie M. May 2021
Out of every window there is an amazing view. The place provides everything you need and is in a great location. The walls are thin. It didn’t bother us, just want others to be aware in case that bothers them. We had an amazing stay!
David S. Apr 2021
This apartment has incredible views, good layout, necessities and amenities, perfect location and friendly neighbors :)
Michelle L. Oct 2020
Nice location!
Janet A. Sep 2020
Spent many hours enjoying balcony views- due west for sunset plus south towards Eureka with Trinidad Head in middle! Exceptionally comfy furniture in living room, and the bed. Excellent clam chowder next door and Trinidad beach was perfect.
Cheri R. Sep 2020
We loved the amazing view of the harbor and ocean.
Katie D. Sep 2020
Really can’t beat this view! The property is great for a quiet relaxing stay. The neighbors are very very nice and the whole town has a small peaceful view. I would definitely stay again!
Sarah A. Aug 2020
Loved this quiet upstairs condo so much! Nice neighbors, close to walk to everything in Trinidad. Kitchen/dining area was nice size as was the living room and bedrooms. We'll be back!
Holly S. Jul 2020
We loved our stay! The view is worth a million bucks and I could have been totally happy just sitting on the sofa my whole stay, staring at the ocean! The condo was CLEAN and to me that’s so very important, especially during COVID. Only criticisms were that the backyard was full of mole hills/holes which made it unappealing for us to hang out back there and the downstairs neighbors were playing the piano for hours and walls are thin. Overall, great place and we will be back.
Mendel A U. Jun 2020
Great location if you love peace and quiet! Ocean views abound, comfy furniture, walk to beach and stores. Loved our stay.
David D. Mar 2020
Trinidad is a very charming little community. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean views, and the very comfortable furnishings. Everything we needed was provided. Enjoyed our time walking down to the beach as well. Would definitely stay here again.
Devon & Brian R. Mar 2020
We especially loved enjoying the ocean view from the patio. Convenient location for walks on the beach, grocery store, local shops and art galleries.
Yvette S. Jan 2020
This place has some amazing views.
. Nov 2019
This condo is in a perfect location for exploring all that Humboldt county has to offer. The property was exactly as described, well equipped and very clean. Loved that we could just walk next door or up the street a little ways for great places for breakfast. We would highly recommend this condo for your Trinidad holiday.
. Oct 2019
Nice place to stay in beautiful Trinidad. Wonderful view from the deck. Short walk to the beach or into town. Well- equipped kitchen. Loved that our dog could stay too. This is a 4-plex and the walls are a bit thin, but the neighbors were quiet.
. Sep 2019
We enjoyed our stay in Trindad. Had a great view from the front room and kitchen of the bay. The unit was clean and comfortable. The location is nice for walking and site seeing.
. Sep 2019
Can't beat the view!
. Sep 2019
The condo was clean and had soft music playing when we arrived. The book of condo instructions and activity suggestions was well organized and easy to understand. The views are beautiful.
The only negative was the lawn. It is not maintained and a bit dangerous to walk on at night as there are it is not level and full of mole or vole holes.
. Aug 2019
Cute home in a cute small hometown feel city. Short walk to the beach, where we enjoyed the amazing view/sunsets. There's a gift shop/restaurant directly next door to the condo offering a little of everything, which was convenient. Anything else you may need you could find up the street (5 walk).
. Aug 2019
Excellent location with beautiful view. With a great restaurant next door, a superb winery across the street and the beach a 5 minute walk, we were in paradise.
. Aug 2019
Clean and comfortable accommodations with wonderful ocean views from the living room and kitchen. Just a short walk to the pier and to the Trinidad beaches. The beds were comfortable and the evenings very quiet and restful.
. Jul 2019
The photos do not do justice to the 270 degree panoramic view from the porch and kitchen. My kids and I loved the ping pong table and hot tub outside, as well as being able to walk around town and to the beach. The rental company was great. They immediately came to fix the hot tub when the motor went out and left nice cookies, coffee, and granola to welcome us.
. Jul 2019
This is the second time I've stated here. They put in a balcony and updated some of the furniture. Very nice. It is quiet and a great place for a dog.
. Jul 2019
Condo was very clean and perfectly situated for an amazing view of the ocean! Multiple beaches in immediate vicinity. Great location for Redwoods and other parks. Loved coming back to the hot tub over looking the ocean after exploring for the day! Great restaurant right next door!
. Jul 2019
The Buoy Bell condo surpassed all my expectations! The condo has plenty of space and is in a superb location not only in Trinidad for a beautiful view but also in respect to the Redwood National & State Parks. It was a very smooth process checking in and out of the condo. I would recommend staying at this property to anyone and everyone!
. Jun 2019
very satisfied.
. Jun 2019
The views are more stunning in the person. It is a wonderful dog friendly property and community. The property management company is very responsive.
. May 2019
Buoy Bell is a great place to stay in Trinidad. It is convenient to any part of the town and the beach and pier. The view of the bay is beautiful. The apartment is well-cared for. We will most likely stay there again.
. May 2019
We have stayed here several times, and the place feels like home.
. Feb 2019
We stayed 5 nights in the Buoy Bell Condo in February. Its windows look directly at the Trinidad harbor with an additional view to the west out to the Pacific with beautiful sunsets. Our weather was equally rain and sun. The kitchen had everything one needs for cooking any meal, including the view. The condo was clean and well stocked with toys for our 4 yr old grand niece from Switzerland. The condo's Trinidad location was great for showing off our favorite spots along the north coast to our Switzerland guests. The wifi was fast, the tv adequate. It would have been nice to have had an electric fireplace for ambience on the two very rainy evenings. We will definitely rent the Buoy Bell condo again, any time of the year. Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals is a good company to work with.
. Feb 2019
trip was rad!! beautiful blue skies, warm sun, cool breeze, rain storm, hail, snow!!!, thunder... pretty outstanding
place is just fine. not too fancy cause we didn't pay for fancy. on one side of condo is a coffee house that has hella yummy lattes. on the other side is Katy's, BEST SALMON EVER.... the weather, the town folk, and the views.... thumbs up A+
. Nov 2018
Over Thanksgiving I booked Buoy Bell for some out of town visitors and it was perfect. Coffee shop right next door was welcomed by these east coasters who were dealing with a time difference. Exploring harbor, Trinidad Head, and gift shops is only a short walk away. In addition to great location, ocean views from the apartment are spectacular! Everything was clean and comfortable. Would definitely rent again!
. Nov 2018
We loved staying at this property. It was perfect for our family of four + our fur baby. We enjoyed the location...within walking distance to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The property manager was very helpful and was able to answer all of my questions quickly & thoroughly before & after we booked our stay. We will be staying here again!
. Sep 2018
The apartment was nicely furnished and had everything we needed for a lovely stay. My favorite feature was the big windows overlooking Trinidad bay. Lovely view and great sounds, including the Buoy Bell!
I would definitely stay here again.
. Sep 2018
Loved this cozy apartment on 2nd fl. Views of bay,dotted with fishing boats reminded me of a lovely European fishing village. Trinidad town was lovely too.
. Sep 2018
This is our third visit to Buoy Bell. We love the panoramic view of Trinidad Bay, being next door to the Eatery and close to our favorite beaches.
. Sep 2018
It was great! Perfect location and super cozy. The only thing was the neighbors dogs weren't leash and some where aggressive to our dog. And they don't pick up their dog poop. Also when the neighbors would smoke outside under the windows it would come in the house if you had the windows open. Other than that had a great stay. Would recommend.
. Aug 2018
Absolutely perfect for this trip with our small family. Convenient and clean. If you plan to BBQ be sure to bring your own condiments and BBQ gear. Stunning views!
. Jul 2018
It was a very nice 2nd floor condo. The view was great and the rooms were comfortable. We had everything we needed. The only negative was some mold in the shower, which could (and should) be easily corrected.
. Jul 2018
Our family of 3 really enjoyed our stay in this condo! It's not fancy, but it's certainly very comfortable, and it's within easy walking distance of the beach and restaurants. The view can't be beat. This is a great place to stay for a visit to Humboldt County and the redwoods.
. Jul 2018
when we arrived we were a little confused. the building looked not that pretty from outside and a big dog barked and not allowed us to come in. after calling the housekeeper she showed up within minutes and cleared the situation.
the Condo was awesome, we loved it. that was real vacation - not like staying in a hotel. nice kitchen, nice livingroom - all with a spectacular view on the pacific. unfortunately the weather was foggy sometimes. everything was in good shape and very clean. Wifi worked very fast. so far the best stay at our 4 week journey. last word: we would recommend this appartement and would come again.
. Jul 2018
Everything was perfect !
. Jun 2018
We were so happy with our 4 night stay in Trinidad at this property. Trinidad is a beautiful place and the property had a great view and location that made it perfect place to enjoy the beauty. It is located within an easy drive of the redwood areas. We loved the fact that the property was located next to a great restaurant. So convenient for breakfast and end of the day relaxing tasty dinner. The property was clean and very comfortable--comfy bed and newer sectional sofa in the living room. Property manager communicated through an app that provided timely and thorough info. Everything was great and we have already recommended the property to friends who plan to travel to the area.
. Jun 2018
The most beautiful view from the front room. Hot tub was wonderful with the exception of the suds.
. Jun 2018
Comfortable condo in the heart of Trinidad, gorgeous views easy walk to the market and right next to a cafe and coffee shop. Perfect beach access, great locals to give us tips on hiking and things to do. The little samples of local products were an added bonus, my husband is now addicted to Lacey's cookies!
. Jun 2018
This property was far better than described! The views were absolutely gorgeous. The rooms were very clean and delightfully decorated. Soaking in the hot tub while overlooking the harbor was the perfect way to relax at the end of the day. We will definitely stay here again!
. May 2018
Incredible views of the ocean from the living room and dining room. Very comfortable and within walking distance of restaurants, stores and walks to scenic beach and walking trails. A family favorite destination for us.
. May 2018
We had a very enjoyable stay. Unit within walking distance to beach and businesses.
. Apr 2018
What a treat to stay in this great place with great views, especially with our dog! We took day trips out to the Redwoods. I didn't expect or understand how beautiful Trinidad is! I had beaches to myself each morning.
. Mar 2018
Beautiful views, hot hot tub, great neighbors, comfortable place with all the amenities you could ask for. We will be back!
. Mar 2018
The view from the condo was amazing. Unit was clean but needs a little updating of the furnitures. Location was really convenient to walk around town. We had a great time during out stay.
. Mar 2018
A lovely condo with an amazing view. We had a terrific weekend visiting with our friends and enjoyed this rental very much. There's a cafe next door with good chowder but way overpriced. Bring your own groceries and enjoy the beautiful kitchen with a view of the Bay while you cook!
. Mar 2018
Trinidad is a cute coastal harbor town. Several restaurants to pick from. Excellent location to travel to many State and National Parks. Redwood tress, beachcombing, hiking, wildlife all around, take your binoculars. Gift shops, Art gallery, museum, there is a gas station and a grocery store, which adds to a convenient stay. I highly recommend this town in your travels, plan in advance based upon time of the year. We did March 3 thru 5. Perfect for us, however we were fortunate, the sun cooperated for us, not likely this time of year.
The buoy Bell is right in the center of town which only enhances your stay. The two bedroom condo/apt. acommodated us quite adequately.Amazing views , well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, book a time for yourselves and start exploring.
. Jan 2018
We have stayed at this location before in beautiful Trinidad. The location is perfect as it placed you relatively between Eureka/Arcata and the redwoods at Lady Bird Johnson and also Fern Canyon. We will definitely return and hope to make it an even longer stay!
. Dec 2017
The Buoy Bell had a great view of the bay. We were fortunate to be there during fair weather. It was steps from our family get-together making it super convenient. Comfortable nights sleep. Quiet mornings with coffee and a view.
. Dec 2017
Wow, what a great view and a great location to walk to everything in Trinidad. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable.
. Dec 2017
Although this was a business trip, I really loved this location and condo. Trinidad is a beautiful beach town with incredible views. This condo has great views from both the living room and kitchen.
The property was exactly described, very clean and roomy. I love it and will be back with my family next time.
