We stayed two nights at The Blue Llama over the weekend of the Trinidad to Clam Beach Run. While we would have preferred to be within walking distance of the starting line, The Blue Llama was a wonderful alternative. The house was very clean, the beds comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. What more could one ask for. Equally pleasant was the fenced back yard where our dog was able to run around and stretch her legs. The owner has a beautiful collection of crystals and an interesting collection of books. The kitchen has been updated and contains just about anything you would need to cook a gourmet meal. We will visit this home again.

We stayed for 3 nights 12/2022. We enjoyed the hosts' hospitality, the comfortable, clean home with an eclectic vibe, and the terrific location - near the coast and glorious Redwoods. We highly recommend for anyone needing a recharge!

Lovely home to spend our vacation in. We brought our dog along who loved the large backyard. Trinidad is a cute little coastal town and has a couple hikes and beaches that we really loved! A great place to stay!
Michele C. Jul 2022
Very comfortable and well appointed property (wished there was a microwave though). Easy access from freeway and close to town of Trinidad and great dog friendly hiking trails and beaches.
Manager response:
Hi, Michelle! Your feedback is so appreciated. The homeowner has specifically decided not to provide a microwave though there is a toaster oven and deluxe gas range and oven available. Thank you!

This home had way more than I expected. The little touches of art, living plants and pops of color made it feel so much more like a home than just some random persons house. The kitchen was absolutely amazing! The updated appliances, organization drawers, etc. made it such a lovely place to cook and prepare meals together. The rooms are definitely suited for a family with children, which worked perfectly for us. The outdoor space was magical! Immediately upon arriving, we had to explore the Enchanted Trail, which was very enchanting. So much thought and work has gone into the backyard and the trails behind it. We explored the trails everyday and got some amazing photos while doing so. The large front porch was definitely a hangout spot for us in the morning and most evenings. Overall, this house hit it out of the park and it is something we hope to book again someday!
Kristi T. Jul 2022
We loved the decor and all of the comforts of home. The house and backyard were beautiful and close to the national parks and beach.
Jeannine B. Jun 2022
We enjoyed this beautiful place. The decorating is so well done, and it was a very comfortable place for our family of four. The enchanted forest behind the home was such a delight, my kids were so impressed by it!

Very clean, well stocked kitchen, close to Trinidad hiking trails and great fishing!
Barb S. Oct 2021
If I could, I would leave a 4.5/5 stars. This home was so comfortable ~ from the bed to the couch to the porch ~ it was such a cozy and welcoming space. Very quiet and felt private, even with the other home next door. The kitchen is great to make even the most complicated of meals (which we did!), though it does lack a microwave and a coffee pot/French press (it does have a fancy espresso machine and pour-over coffee pot). The cleaning crew does an AMAZING job...even the refrigerator was spotless! Excellent location from which to explore Trinidad, the Redwoods, and even Arcata (go to the Arcata Marshes, if you are a birder!). The only reason I would knock off half a star is the house lacks some kitchen supplies I consider to be essential when renting a home with a kitchen...plastic wrap, tin foil, more Tupperware/food storage, and the like. The house does not come with basics like olive oil so be sure to bring everything you need to cook with! Other than that, it's a wonderful home to come back to after a day of exploring. I'll rent the Blue Llama again the next time we're in Trinidad.

One of the best places we have ever stayed. Perfect inside. The kitchen is well stocked and thoroughly modern. The Internet was high Speed without any interruptions.

Very tastefully decorated. We will definitely return next year.
Olivia C. Sep 2021
We had a great stay at the Blue Llama in Trinidad. The house was ready and clean upon arrival. Kitchen was well stocked and fun to cook with family. The place has great energy and good taste. I mostly loved all the crystals throughout the house.
Robert S. Sep 2021
We loved the yard and the neighborhood.
Leslie M. Aug 2021
This vacation home is very well appointed and VERY comfortable and the plus was we got to bring our pup and she experienced the ocean for the first time and LOVED it! Centrally located for activities both North and South of the home. and centrally located to all sorts of great places. We are wildlife photographers and nature enthusiasts and it is close to so many hot spots. Though you can hear HWY 101 faintly the home backs up to a nice wooded area with MANY animals. We brought our game cameras to see what is out and about and boy were we surprised! Check it out! Now I know why our pup was so fascinated with the back fence! We spent a lot of time in Trinidad proper this time and went out on a fishing charter. Limited on Rock Cod and Dungeness Crab. We highly recommend this home and will be back! This is our third rental through VACASA and we cannot recommend it highly enough 15 out of 10!

This was a nice stay, and we probably would give it 5 stars if it was cleaner, had decent water pressure (shower), and had a microwave. The floor could have used a good mopping. It's only a half mile from Highway 101 and the cozy coastal village of Trinidad. The town has great food options, parks, and beach access -- great if you want a low-key, peaceful stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Thomas. We are glad you had a nice stay overall but apologize for the details that were amiss. We are so sorry for the cleanliness issues you experienced and appreciate you bringing these items to our attention. Our local staff will follow up with housekeeping to ensure future cleans are completed to our standards. We are also sorry to hear the water pressure in the home didn't meet your expectation. The owners are environmentally conscious and preserving water is very important to them. This is also the reason the home is without a microwave. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope we have the opportunity to host you for an outstanding stay.

A truly unique and thoughtfully designed experience. The furnishings and decor make you feel like you've come home, but your home is way cooler than you remember. The kitchen must have been built for a chef as it is equipped to bring the restaurant home. There's even an espresso maker! Wake up, brew some coffee, make some crepes, and watch your doggy roll in the grass from the front porch. Oh yeah, did I mention you are surrounded by Redwoods and beach-life? A rare find and a must stay. We'll be back!
Thomas H. May 2021
Sweet place with more room than we expected. Well appointed and tastefully decorated. Well equipped kitchen if you don't mind not having a microwave. We had a very relaxing stay.
Mark W. May 2021
Really an excellent stay at the Blue Llama while visiting the Redwoods state park area. A truly beautiful home within driving distance from local eateries in Trinidad. Will definitely recommend.
Graham P. May 2021
This is my second time at the Blue Llama. The location is great, everything in the home is new, fresh and clean.
You definitely feel as if you’re staying in an eclectic beautiful artsy home. It’s obvious the owners want guests to be comfortable and they have succeeded!

Located just a mile from the beach, it’s an easy drive in the evenings to watch the sunset. Can’t wait until our next stay!
Veronica B. Apr 2021
Wow the Blue Llama house was beautiful, so clean and comfortable!! I love how every bedroom was decorated so nicely, the beds were comfy with nice clean linen😊. The kitchen was very clean and a great size. Just wish there was a regular coffee maker and maybe a microwave, otherwise it was perfect 👌. The proximity to the Trinidad beach/ ocean was awesome, less then a 5 minute drive !! Would definitely love to stay there again , had a fabulous time😀. Thank you ‼️
Krista B. Feb 2021
We first booked this house for a family trip with our 3 boys but decided to take a trip just us and the baby and it was more than we hoped for ! They had so many extras for the puppy and kids!! So many little amenities made it feel like home. So comfortable and gorgeous property!!! Incredibly gorgeous inside the home, all the crystals made it a calming feeling! Perfect location just minutes from our favorite beach moonstone ! We will be booking again next month to take the whole family !
Jason M. Jan 2021
Laid back, happy place in an ideal location. This is a beautiful home with incredible thoughtfulness and detail on a serene and quiet property. Only downside is having to leave it. Can’t wait to return.
Graham P. Dec 2020
This place was more than we hoped for! Everything is brand new and clean from the flooring to the cabinets to the fixtures.

The kitchen has everything and more that you will need to make delicious meals and brew great coffee.

This definitely does NOT have a hotel feeling, the home is decorated with fun, unusual and eccentric art. Everywhere you look is a visual delight.

The large outdoor covered porch is a wonderful place to end your day with a comfy sofa and mood lighting.

We did not bring our dog this time, but if we had she would have enjoyed a huge and safely fenced backyard.

And.... with just a mile from the quaint village of Trinidad and the beach, this will now be our Go To place :-)
Eric B. Dec 2020
We have stayed at well over 40 Air B and B's and this has been our best stay yet. Everything in the home was well thought out and well stocked. Amazing cooking setup if you like to stay in. Best vacation home in Trinidad hands down.
Kulpreet G. Dec 2020
Absolutely loved the home and the gorgeous art inside. So happy this place was dog friendly and the host was very accommodating. There is another house right next to this one (same property) so it’s not as isolated or private as I would prefer. Overall amazing place ☺️
Joyce U. Nov 2020
Lovely, fully equipped home, with a fully fenced yard. House is comfortably furnished, spotless and I loved that they had live houseplants. I’d definitely stay there again.
Shelly M. Nov 2020
Perfect size for our party of 5. Home looks newly remodeled with a great kitchen. Smaller room is great for littles. Very comfortable and nicely decorated. Great yard for dogs. Whole home is very dog and kid friendly.
David S. Nov 2020
The house is clean, comfortable, and has beautiful touches, like an ornate wooden display stand under the TV, enormous quartz/amethyst mineral rocks, etc. A fenced-in yard was great for our dog. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in — 36" wide modern stove & oven, granite countertops, well equipped with pots & pans, dishes, knives, etc. I'd be thrilled to return.
Alisa A. Oct 2020
Great place with huge yard. Excellent accommodations.
Casey W. Sep 2020
Very clean, kitchen is well stocked with pans, etc. Didn't have any issues at all during our stay! Would rent again!
