IMAGINE THE PERFECT LOCATION: OCEANFRONT, SECLUDED AND BREATHTAKING VIEWS...

ARE YOU READY TO INDULGE YOURSELF?

Then picture yourself listening to the roar of the ocean as you watch the waves crash on the offshore rocks. Relax in the hot tub while you unwind on the secluded 10 acre estate.

About Mike & Debbie Wood

We are an active couple in our fifties. Mike has an aviation background and Debbie has a medical background. Debbie is also a Doterra Wellness Advocate.

After looking all over, we decided Trinidad was the best place in the world to live. The ocean views can't be beat. Trinidad is always cool and has world class views. It's small and uncrowded with no traffic, yet just big enough to have a grocery store and restaurants. And there's an airport only ten minutes away. So, after vacationing here for ten years we decided to retire here. We moved to Trinidad in 2010 and in 2012 we purchased an oceanfront property with a guest house.

The Oceanfront Chalet is family owned and managed. The owners are on site in the adjacent house to the south. Basically we are there for you if you need us, otherwise we keep to ourselves.

Mike & Debbie Wood purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike & Debbie Wood chose Trinidad

This is located on historic Stagecoach Rd among private estates that are 5 - 10 acres in size. It is not on a main road and there are no subdivisions. There is no freeway noise. So it is usually very quiet (other than the ocean noise) and does not have the packed in neighbors that the town has. Our 10 acres estate has awesome, panoramic ocean views along with the constant roar of the ocean. Our private drive has gated access and the Chalet is about 600 feet in from Stagecoach road (and completely hidden from the road).

What makes this house unique

This is the only vacation rental in California that has it all: Oceanfront, Private beach, Private waterfall, Panoramic views, Hot tub, Claw-foot tub, Wifi, Rock climbing wall, Campfire pit, Loft, Deck, BBQ and more!

The Oceanfront Chalet - Your best choice for an awesome vacation!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house, great location, and great host. The house itself is a "vista point". Mike and Debbie provide everything you need, comfortable beds, great wine, hot tub, private beach and best of all "Wake up and see the ocean at first!". If you plan to go to redwood parks you should not miss this place.

Notes:
About once a month the propane truck comes by all properties in Trinidad to refill propane tanks. This takes about 20 minutes. The 140 yard path to the Chalet’s private beach is down a steep bluff trail and depending on one’s fitness level, it may be too difficult for some to make this hike. Beach trail use is only recommended when the trail is dry. (Note: For those that cannot make it down the trail there are two drive up beaches within three miles) Owners are in the large house to the southwest of the Chalet and can provide free airport transfers, show you where to find berries, answer questions about the area or address any other concerns you may have.

Seamless and perfect (and beautiful)

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was warm, welcoming and wonderful.The view was breathtaking. The area full of splendor.

The owners must be travellers themselves, because they thought of every detail. We've rented a great many vacation properties over the years, and this one really stands out.

Thank you, Oceanfront Chalet! We'll be back!

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

Charming home! Mike and Debbie really go above and beyond to make sure you are well cared for! There was an amazing bottle of wine and a delicious box of local chocolates waiting for us when we arrived! My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights for my birthday weekend and it was wonderful! The master bed is super comfy and the view from the deck is amazing! Great place to watch the sunset. We had a blast hiking around Patrick’s Point and looking for agates on the beach. Drove into Arcata and Eureka and had a great time looking at local art and gifts! Lots of cool stuff!!! We will definitely be back!!!

Beautiful location! Very peaceful and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Debbie are such gracious host who think of everything for their visitors. From day trip suggestions to detailed restaurant recommendations, they really consider every aspect of your stay an important detail. We enjoyed a campfire overlooking the ocean with the sounds of the waves and seals in the background. The rooms are comfortable and the home is well maintained. Be prepared for a bit of a strenuous hike down to the beach, but enjoy the challenge and the agate hunting below

A great spot to relax and enjoy nature!

Local attractions: Within a short drive, you have access to many scenic attractions including Trinidad Head Trail, the HSU Marine Lab, Agate Beach, Redwood National Park, Prairie Creek State Park and Fern Canyon with its herds of Roosevelt elk.

Other activities include: exploring Humboldt State University and Arcata, Old Town Eureka and the Eureka Waterfront, the Victorian Village of Ferndale, and the College of the Redwoods. Charter boats are available for fishing, sightseeing and whale watching excursions (there is good whale watching directly from the house). Trinidad harbor also offers excellent kayaking. The Trinity, Klamath, Eel and Mad Rivers offer world class trout, steelhead and salmon fishing as well as river rafting and kayaking.

Excellent restaurants abound in Trinidad, Arcata, and Eureka. Our personal favorites include The Larrupin Cafe, Seascape, Alice's and The Lost Coast Brewery and Cafe. For surfers, Trinidad beaches are the preferred location in Humboldt county. In winter, Horse mountain provides access for cross country skiing and snow fun less than an hour away.

Wine tasting can be found at Bergeron Winery & Moonstone Crossing winery in downtown Trinidad. Tide pooling, Bird Watching, Marine Mammals, Art Galleries, Gift Shops, Trinidad Museum, Sailing, Windsurfing, Camping, Horseback Riding, Cher-Ae Heights Casino, Fishing, Crabbing, Clamming, Beach combing, Cycling, Rock Climbing, Swimming and Agate Hunting are other activities to choose from. For golfers, there are two courses within a 30 minute radius.
