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.

Clean and comfy. Well stocked. Ocean views.

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Comfy beds. Well stocked kitchen and a beautiful deck. Great for families and kids. The ocean is a short, although slightly challenging, walk from the house. We happened upon the Trinidad Fish Festival that was fun.

Quiet, end of the road location with a fabulous view of the ocean. Spacious deck with a gas grill.

We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed your visit to Trinidad and the Sunset House. Humboldt County has many festivals! There was also the Oyster Festival in Arcata that same weekend. There are many different access paths to our local beaches, some are more challenging than others. We look forward to your next stay.

Great Views and Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 5 kids and my parents and had a wonderful time! Even though it rained much of our trip we still enjoyed alot of what the area had to offer. The home itself had plenty of space for us and the views were amazing! The kitchen appliances were all top of the line which made cooking meals at the home that much better! We were able to bbq one night and my dad just kept saying how much nicer it was to bbq with a view like that! When it wasn't raining the kids and I sat outside on the deck and watched the ocean and played one of many games that were there. You could hear and smell the ocean from the deck. It was so nice. We really enjoyed the bottle of wine upon arrival! We had a long journey with 5 kids so we enjoyed it as soon as we got there! Thank you so much Arlene for sharing the Sunset Home with us. We are already talking about trying to make another visit next year!
