Family-friendly, waterfront home w/ ocean views above Scenic Houda Point
Inhale the scent of coastal pines and relax overlooking a 180-degree panoramic view of the coastal bluffs. Flooded with warmth and sunlight, the living room reveals the original redwood barn built in 1906 that was later converted in 1950 to the enchanting home you’ll find today. Let the ambiance of the wood-burning stove and the sound of crashing waves erase your every day worries. Explore the nearby redwoods, surf, and historic towns before stargazing around the fire. This unique, family-friendly coastal gem is perfect for nature enthusiasts, history lovers, and anyone in need of a breath of fresh ocean air. Sit out on the upper balcony above the living room for a great view of the outdoors. For those who prefer the indoors, relax in the lower living room and take in the ambiance and warmth of the wood stove. The kitchen is well-appointed with all the basic amenities, the shared dining room space seats six, and the breakfast bar in the kitchen seats four. Enjoy an authentic Northern California experience and discover the century's worth of history within the redwood walls of this beautiful home.

Walk down secluded trails to the multiple beaches and famous Trinidad surf spots nearby. Dine overlooking the ocean in the private backyard or at the Moonstone Grill only a mile away. Take a scenic six-minute drive down the retired Highway 1 (now Scenic Drive) to downtown Trinidad and indulge in the sea-oriented local cuisine and culture. Only a short drive away is Northern California’s famous old-growth redwood forests to explore on foot, bike, horseback, or car at one of the many drive-through redwood trees. Explore the historic and unique Northern California towns while creating lasting memories at the scenic Cliff House.

This home is very, very cute and cozy with great ocean views. It's quiet and secluded on a large lot and was just great to come back to each night. The kitchen is a very nice size with skylights and lots of space. I definitely recommend! (Just fyi If you're fussy about pillows I'd think about bringing your own)

I loved the Sea Side escape cottage. Overall, it was a great home with amazing views. The only thing that needs addressing are the AWFUL beds. For this price point I’d expect a bit more comfortable beds. Other than that, great location, was very clean and well maintained.
Thanks for leaving your feedback! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay despite the uncomfortable bed. We look forward to hosting you again, thanks for staying with us!

The house was clean, comfortable, plenty of room and the views are outstanding!

Lovely setting, close to everything we wanted to see and do. The view from the house and yard was fabulous, we enjoyed three beautiful sunsets. Definitely would stay again.

Nice place and a great location. Would have been nice to stay for a longer time. Would have rated it as a 5 but there were a few things that could have been better.
Peter B.Jun 2021
This is our second week (one in Sept 2020) staying at this beautiful home. The views, home and property management are amazing. We will be coming back and again.

We loved our stay here! Private and glorious ocean views. The house was stocked with everything you would need and more. So much character and unique decor. We would definitely stay here again!

We booked last minute. The home was bigger than I expected and the views were incredible. Everything was labeled so we could find utensils, the kitchen was well, equipped It had everything we needed plus more. My kids had a blast exploring the property and we will definitely return. Bring or plan on buying some firewood to use the firepit. It was perfect for the cool evenings.
Ryan C.Oct 2020
The house was comfortable, had five beds, two bathrooms, good wi-fi, and a large lot for the kids to run around in safely. There is a fire pit for smores and storytelling, rope swings, and horseshoes. My two boys and I played the provided games (Monopoly and crazy eights with a deck of cards) and I enjoyed playing a little on the baby grand piano. This house is very conveniently located near many state parks, and the small town of Trinidad where they have a grocery store and a gas station. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you.
Peter B.Oct 2020
We loved this house! We will be returning soon. The privacy and space is second to none, the view is breathtaking and the house is warm and cozy.

Every year me and 2-6 buddies go on a hiking trip. We rent a house as our base of operation and this was the best house we've rented since 2000, when we started renting lodging. The location, the ocean views, the house amenities were all top notch. The house was clean, well-equipped and had a very nice ambiance. We were not lacking for anything. Thanks for a great experience!

We just completed a week long stay. Had a wonderful time. The house was very comfortable for my wife and I, daughter and her husband and 2 grandsons. The views from the backyard of Trinidad Head & Bay to the north and Moonstone Beach to the south were stunning. Though in a small neighborhood, the property was quite private. We enjoyed s’mores in the outdoor fire pit. We highly recommend it for a relaxing vacation.
Melissa D.Jul 2020
This house has an incredible ocean view from the bluff. The house was comfortable and spacious. At low tide, the beach below is covered in star fish and anemones. We'll be back!
Jeanne L.Jul 2020
I loved the big yard for the kids to run around in. The fire pit for the S’mores, and the comfortable accommodations. It is centrally located for the beaches and for all different walking abilities. We had a great time!
Carol W.Jun 2020
The view from the back yard was so wonderful! Gave family members who can not really walk on the beach a feeling of being at the ocean! Watching the waves, hearing the ocean! And so close to many beaches for the rest of the family!
Iliana B.May 2020
Amazing views and a very cute house
Mike M.Apr 2020
Backyard was awesome. We spend lots of time around the fire-pit and enjoying the ocean.
Erin G.Mar 2020
Loved the house and it’s quirks, felt like it has grown with the land. More information on the Trinidad area would have be helpful. We hiked up and down long steps by the main part of town but a little ways more there was easier access to beach fun! The house is fully equipped for all kinds of cooking or just quick snacks! We loved the sheets and towels service and having access to washer/dryer. It was a perfect launching spot to all the Redwood National Parks have to offer. The instructions for the home were thoroughly planned and very helpful. We had no issues to address with management so we did not need to contact them. Loved our holiday! Thank you for all the courteous assistance!
The location of the home offered our family an incredible view and easy access to the beach a few miles away. The home was clean and had all the ammenaties. The manager of the property was friendly and very professional and answered all of our questions. I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family. We really enjoyed the Seaside Restaurant and made a quick trek to Arcata for the Farmers Market.
A delightful charming home, perfect for a get-away, and family gathering, particularly if you have a student attending Humboldt State. The amenities were just right, and the bedding was clean and comfortable.. it was like returning to a grandparents house....The sunsets were great to toast to....
Nice home in a great location. Something went wrong and management was right on top of it fixing the problem very quickly. If given the choice we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
Perfect house for a family or friends. Great location and the view alone is worth every penny. House is very clean and spacious. My friends who all live in the area could not believe the house and the view. We will be back!
We had the perfect writing retreat at this lovely, quiet, comfortable property. The views were incredible, there was plenty of space indoor and out, and the home was spotless and well maintained. This place is exactly as advertised, and we will definitely return here!
All of us loved the location, the house, especially the comfortable beds! We were fortunate to have lovely weather and made use of the outside fire pit.
The house is large yet cozy. Firepit in the backyard. And it all sits on a bluff that looks down on 'movie scene' quality view.
We had our married kids with their children with us and this was just fun to be all together in a beautiful place. Easy access to the beach, Trinidad and the redwoods.
We loved it. It was ideal. Not too fancy, had nice cottage feel and we loved the yard and the view. Only problem was the grill didn't work right. Most of the burners were burned out but no big deal, we managed and let the management know for future guests. Thanks
The home was great for our family vacation. The house was spacious and the backyard was amazing! So many different views you can't complain.
Pros: We are senior ladies who like our own bedrooms and this house, with four BRs, accommodated us fine...and the BRs were very comfortable. And we like an open layout between living, dining, and kitchen and we had that. And we like a fireplace and a good view and we had that as well. and we like a responsive rental agent, and we definitely had that!
Cons: Some of the furnishings are old, stained. Curtains in the larger BR are just mismatched...not veryand had to keep them closed over patio door as there were so many cobwebs and other debris on outside...never would have opened those doors. Shower curtain in one bath was pretty worn out,9 but rental agent replaced it the next morning after we told her.
Beautiful and breathtaking views. The house was spotless and tons of room. The host made us feel right at home. Inside and outside is a 10 out of 10. We will be back for sure. Thanks again!!!!
I love this place!
There were 9 of us coming together to participate in the Clam Beach Run. The location was perfect. The home provided adequate beds and a great kitchen. Views were great. Had a great time.
The home was clean and comfortable. The view was even better than I thought it would be. The location was very convenient, close to beaches and restaurants and Patrick's Point State Park. We will definitely rent this property again!
Gorgeous well-loved house, homely and welcoming, but the best thing is the garden with its fire pit and the view from the bluff. Just wow! Loved this place. And a great location for exploring the redwoods.
Suberb. The home was very nice the view was fantastic. The home was neat and clean and the view was fantastic. The location was quiet and peaceful and the town cozy with a good restaurant. Oh! Did i mention the view was fantastic. Thank you for the opportunity to truly cap off the end of our vacation.
une vue enchantée sur la côte, des feux de camp le soir, des barbecues au soleil, des tasses de thé dans les chaises longues
We arrived at this lovely home to find soft music playing in the living room. This home is very comfortable with a complete kitchen. The back lawn overlooks the Pacific Ocean and even has horseshoe to setup and play. We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the beautiful view. The house was warm at night with comfortable beds. You could easily sleep 8 and a couple of kids.
We had a wonderful time in this house! The place is superb. The view of the ocean is so beautiful! The house is very comfortable. Would come back again! I really recommend this place. Thanks!
Old world accommodation with all modern conveniences. Comfortable and spacious, very private.
We loved the views and the space in the house. The yard was awesome and next time we want to bring our grandchildren.
Loved the location of the house. It was wonderful.
The house was clean and comfortable. The view was breathtaking. We were able to relax and enjoy the company of family without stress. The management company was wonderful to work with and very responsive to our needs.
This was a very charming old renovated farmhouse, very comfortable. It felt very private like you were separated from the neighbors. The view was breathtaking. Really enjoyed staying in this area, so much beautiful scenery. Would definitely rent this place again.
Beautiful grounds and home with plenty of space and privacy for a large group or several couples. Amazing views from the lower and upper rooms. The back yard is big and open with shade, sun and incredible sunsets. House was reasonably clean and had everything you might need for a couple days or longer stay.
Beautiful views and wonderful house!
We loved the house, location and view of the ocean below. It was everything we wanted and we hope to return in the future. We found the house to be perfect for the four of us - plenty of space to spread out. It was a great location from which to explore the Redwoods and the beaches. Just wish there had been a trail from the property to the road below but we didn't mind the hike around down to the beach.
It's a clean , sielnt and beautiful place to stay with your family and loved ones and the view form the house is austonishing..
Family fun. So glad we found this house!
The view from the property is even more spectacular than pictured. The location is quiet and private, yet convenient to town and shopping with many beautiful beach and forest areas to explore nearby. The number of bedrooms, furnishings, and the size of the kitchen and living room make it ideally suited for a family gathering. The property does not have central heating, so there were a few chilly spots throughout, but the two wall units on the main floor and the availability of portable heaters sufficed. The property manager and staff at Redwood Coast were very helpful in accommodating us when our plans changed and we requested to arrive a day early. We would definitely book this location again.
