Great house, stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

I drove down from Seattle because I needed a peaceful place to write, and could not have found a better spot for it. The Sunset House lives up to its name and then some (seriously, the pictures don’t do it justice). I loved every minute I was there and would recommend it anyone.

The house itself is very spacious and clean. The room I slept in was huge, and had French doors and a private patio where I could sit and drink my coffee in the morning. In the living room there is a sliding door that leads to a large deck/veranda. You can see the view from the living room and dinning room, too. I was there by myself, but this place could definitely fit multiple families (or one large family) comfortably. Arlene was very accommodating, and went out of her way to make sure I had every thing I needed during my stay.

The town itself is awesome. From the front door, you can walk to the town, down to the beach, or to Trinidad Head, which has panoramic views and a lot of little hidden nooks to watch the sunset from. There is a loop you can jog/walk from the house, up to Trinidad Head, down along the beach, and back up to the front door. I’m not much of a runner, but the view was good motivation.

There is a great organic cafe/lunch spot called the Beachcomber in walking distance to the house. Apparently there are really good dinner spots too, though I mostly cooked at home. The grocery store in town has everything you need. I also highly recommend Eureka Natural Foods in McKinleyville, which is a 13 minute drive away. Their prepared food is top notch. Similar price as the Whole Foods buffet, but way better in my opinion.

College Cove, one of the prettiest beaches in the country, is just down the road. Bring your camera. There is a lot of great cultural stuff in the Humboldt area, but honestly I found it hard to stray far from the house once I was settled in. Long story short — I can’t wait to go back.

Absolutely Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in a gorgeous location! We had a group of gals who have been friends since birth and are. Ow grandmas, and we were all very comfortable. Beautifully and fully furnished house and patio. Everything you could need or want is provided,. Great market and restaurants within walking distance. We appreciated the patio chairs the most as we just wanted to be outside enjoying the view! The owners were great to work with and we hope to return to Sunset House! Thank you

Perfect spot for relaxing family trip to the coast

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful, comfortable home in a great location. Nice walk to the beach or town. We had a group of 9, so 4 bedrooms were perfect. Four kids shared a big room. Two couples and grandma each had their own rooms. Nicely decorated. Handy kitchen. Games.

The owner and caretaker were very kind.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. We want to come back again. Every house has it's issues, but this one has very few. The bedrooms are all nice for couples sharing the home. All have queen beds. The only slight problem was the BBQ and the living room gets a bit warm in the afternoon (No AC). We just moved to the patio at the back of the house which was very cool and shady.

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the house! Most homes in this area do not have air conditioning, though it was warmer than usual last summer. We do however have the overhead fan light in the living room and 2 large sliding doors out to the deck. We were not aware of any b-b-q issues, will give it a good look over to make sure. Hope you were able to take in the many sites in the area and the beautiful beaches! We look forward to your next visit. ...
