With the area’s largest ancient redwood right on the property (great for photo ops), this custom, hand-built home is perfect for laid-back, nature-loving families or couples who just like to relax! Featuring Japanese-bohemian inspired touches, this unique property holds a number of delightful surprises awaiting your discovery including a comfortable living room, family room, decks, a Mermaids Loft, a new hot tub, and a low-carbon footprint heating system. The serene kitchen offers a place to prepare meals as well as socialize in the breakfast nook and added bar area. The sunlit dining room includes a working piano from 1889 and an authentic, antique Japanese apothecary bureau.

Fabulous house and garden in Trinidad area, convenient to the town (and well-stocked Murphy's Market, Katy's Smokehouse for fresh fish) but quiet wooded residential neighborhood.

The gardens around Moonstone House were incredible--a new gorgeous place to sit around every corner. The house was great and everything was as advertised. We had a lovely time. If you have a low clearance car, don't try to go down the driveway.
. May 2019
We had a great time at this house! It was perfect for our small group, and we loved being able to watch HBO on demand and hot tub after a long day of hiking. Recommend!
. Apr 2019
The rental home is lovely and was well stocked and clean. The grounds are very relaxing and although there are houses close by, it felt like we were far from others.
. Apr 2019
Wonderful property, just as described. Great location for the redwoods and the beach. Ample room for family of four, we loved the energy and beautiful landscaping of the property. Recommend highly!
. Apr 2019
We had a wonderful time staying at Moonstone House. The location was great. We had a nice visit and everything was more than we expected. I would recommend this to any family who wants a peaceful place to spend their evenings after visiting the Redwoods close by.

Family friendly home, quiet and peaceful surroundings.
. Oct 2018
We loved having this unique home to come back to after our days exploring north and south in the redwoods area. Comfortable, spacious, and surrounded by plant life, making the space very private from neighbors.
. Oct 2018
Awesome family home. Tucked away but so serene!
. Sep 2018
We have rented many homes for vacation stays but this may be the most interesting. The house is tucked right in a forest with some towering Redwoods. It is very Zen with a separate tea house and decks and paths. There is plenty of space with a good supply of the basics like cooking utensils and cookware. Everything worked well. My only suggestion would be to improve the lighting. It's a bit dim in the downstairs area.

We had a great stay in this lovely, serene home. It's location is awesome, just 2 minutes from Moonstone Beach. It was clean and had comfortable beds. Really enjoyed the backyard views from the bathroom windows. The management team was helpful; explaining the amenities and rules of the house. Would stay here again.

Fabulous! This is a lovely home, well maintained. The views from every room are beautiful. Hundreds of trees and plants surround the home, and it's so peaceful and relaxing just to gaze out the window. Everything you need is in this home. We used the hot tub, the washing machine and dishwasher, the range and oven, all were in perfect working condition. Beds were comfortable. All of the spaces in the home are relaxing, and we enjoyed the multiple places to hang out. This home exceeded our expectations on every level!

The home was very unique and cool. The property was private and spacious, yet still pretty close to town. The downfall was the neighbors...I realize the home contract says to keep quiet, but it was totally overkill and ridiculous...We were in Trinidad to do a celebration of life for my grandmother who passed recently (she had visited the town often and loved it) and were staying in the home with my great aunt and uncle, my sister and her 3 year old son, and myself and my 7 year old daughter. The kids were having fun playing on the deck kind of late one evening and the rental company showed up to say neighbors were complaining. Not only that but the neighbors also left a note on my car. I mean, if we had been college kids having a party it would have been one thing, but a couple of kids playing? Come on...

Amazing home with lots of privacy. We have visited the area many times but the Moonstone house made this trip extra special for our family and friends. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with us!

I spent 6 nights at Moonstone House with my adult son and 4 teenage grandchildren. We all voted for this house for our vacation to northern California when we saw the pictures on the website, and we were not disappointed! We loved the character of the house, with the cozy lofts, the beautifully landscaped yard, the fish pond... It was also nice to have the 2 1/2 bathrooms with 6 people. The town of Trinidad was also a big plus! We visited each of the restaurants and had excellent food at all of them. It was also nice to have the well-stocked grocery store so close. We enjoyed visiting several of the many beaches in the area, plus hiking in the redwoods, but mostly we enjoyed spending time together in the house, on the patio and in the hot tub. Thank you for helping to make our visit to the Redwoods a memorable one!

This house is just beyond beautiful. The grounds are magnificent and the house is spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Great house for families--only thing to know, however, is that the rooms don't have sound proof doors.
. May 2018
Beautiful house and location, it had all the small things you may need like salt and pepper which was very nice. Great way to show off beautiful Northern CA to some friends we had visiting from out of state.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous and magical home. Our kids had so much fun in the jacuzzi, tea house and exploring the property. The location was ideal and we even hiked from the house. We would love to come back!
