About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

Moonstone Heights Family Home-Ocean Views from the 3rd floor – Spacious, Redwoods, Goldfish Ponds, Waterfalls, Gardens, Tea House, Art Studio/Home Theater Space, Lofts, Game Room, Fire Pagoda, Eco "Green" Home, Close to gorgeous Moonstone Beach! A Custom, hand-built home with Japanese-inspired décor and many unusual features. Perfect for a large family - 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (one functional tub), Living Room, Family Room, Large Art Studio/“Family Movie Night”Space, Decks, Hot Tub, above Moonstone Beach (fifteen to 20 minute steep walk or few minute drive). Eco-news flash: We've gone green! Come check out the new, full solar system! First floor has a separate dining room with a working piano from 1889, a gourmet kitchen with Wolf range, living room with pull-out futon and sofa, family room with sofa, satellite TV, and high-end woodstove (firewood provided), plus a half bath, all opening out onto decks and private gardens that feature one hundred Japanese maples and rare specimen plants all around. Front deck has outdoor dining with large gas grill. Upstairs has plenty of room to spread out: The Master Suite has sliding glass doors onto step-out balconies for an ocean peek, a King Bed, and a Full Bath. The 2nd floor Art Studio space is stocked with kid’s art supplies for creative family fun, also offering a Home Theater corner where you can settle in to watch DirecTV channels or pre-recorded movies on the huge flat screen. The second bedroom has a desk and queen bed. The 'kids" bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed, along with the fun loft space holding books, toys, and sleeping bags on twin floor pads for the kids. And then the Master Suite has a third floor “Mermaids Loft:" a comfy mini-library with books, cozy sofa, and stools looking out over an Ocean View. Maybe you’ll spot a mermaid! The additional upstairs bathroom has elegant redwood accents, full tiled tub, and a magical view of the private gardens. Outside there is a Japanese tea house (aka “Zen Den”) overlooking the serene goldfish ponds as an additional relaxation, conversation, or meditation space, electric tea kettle and green tea provided! And, the large hot tub is so nice to relax in after being down at the beach or hiking in the Redwoods (Redwood National Park is 20 minutes or so north). The front of the house features a majestic ancient Redwood wider than your car, the oldest one in the area! The garage space has been converted into a “family game room,”with both a full sized pool table and a child-sized version (converts to kiddie ping pong and more games, too!), plus a foosball table, mini basket ball hoop, and a comfortable couch. This home is located less than 5 minutes off Highway 101on a dead end road in a quiet, rural neighborhood, a great central place for exploring Humboldt County and the Redwoods! [PLEASE NOTE: This home is best suited to families seeking peaceful, quiet enjoyment. Loud music is discouraged at any time, so instead plan to enjoy the birdsongs and wind in the treetops! Moonstone House “quiet voices” hours (front yard and hot tub area sounds carry readily towards close neighbors) start at 9pm.] With plenty of wonderful beaches, hiking, and the state Park nearby, you can have a great time without much car time. However, everyone loves to go to Prairie Creek Redwoods National & State Park, about 20 mins north. The park has 100 miles of incredible Redwood hikes--check out Fern Canyon, Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Big Trees, the Cork Screw Trees, and Big Tree! The Humboldt Lagoons are another destination--include it on your Redwoods day trip or do it separately for fishing, hiking, beach combing, bird watching, kayak and paddle board renting, and seasonal swimming. After your redwood adventures, breathe a sigh of contentment as you settle back in to the tranquility of Moonstone House, to rest and renew with your loved ones. Note - 6 occupants maximum. No gatherings or events are permitted, NO exceptions made. Rent is based on 4-person occupancy. Additional guests will be charged $20/night per person.

Reviewer Comments:

Absolutely perfect! That's the only way to describe our experience at Moonstone House; from the amenities to the Japanese gardens... and the Jacuzzi. It's a sweet, somewhat quirky, little home just minutes from the beach. It's just perfect for 6 people. The Management company is very easy to work with and the vacation started with their professionalism and great communication. Additionally, the house was clean and felt more like a home.

Reviewer Comments:

Moonstone House was welcoming and enjoyable for our family vacation. We were looking for a quiet, relaxed, out of the way place to use as a base for exploring the northern CA coast. The house was interesting, with a laid back, Japanese-Zen vibe to it. It was a little shabbier than we were expecting, but nothing too terrible (being that close to the coast seems like houses just get weathered easily.) One thing we didn't enjoy so much was not having curtains on all the windows - we were up at daybreak every day, which wasn't exactly what we were after. It would have been nice to have the option to draw the curtains in the bedrooms and sleep in. Also the skylights have no shades - the full moon shone in like a spotlight on one of the beds, making it pretty much impossible to sleep (we shifted the bed to the corner of the room, which helped a little). The quality of the mattresses were also somewhat varied - the large bed in the master bedroom had two deep trenches that were hard to escape from and made it tough to sleep in. The mattress in the smallest bedroom was rock hard - luckily we weren't using that one for sleeping. The game room in the garage is a great idea but in reality it was waaaaay too musty in there to spend more than about 5 minutes in, and the recycling from previous renters was piled up sky high in one corner, since the recycling bin was overflowing (and had clearly been for some time). It would have been nice if that had been removed before we arrived. Also the hot tub was brown, cloudy and smelled bad after we used it once because there weren't any treatment chemicals and the hot tub guy didn't show up to service it until we'd been there most of the week. We ended up not using it as much as we would have liked to because that was kind of unappealing. Despite all of these negatives, we did enjoy our time there and would rent it again if these things were addressed.
