Trinidad Getaway

Great location, home itself a disappointment.
Laura S. from Hillsboro Beach, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014
The house in two blocks from the lighthouse and walking distance to the beach, a nice view of the cove/ocean. Unfortunately, when you walk into the house you are overwhelmed w the smell of dog & mold. Yes I know it's a pet friendly house but not everyone who rents here are brining one. The odor in the downstairs bedroom was so bad I slept on couch/livingroom for 3 nights. The home is furnished with a mish mosh of unmatching garage sale chairs, couch, love seats and over ten book cases filled with hundreds of books. Our towels smelled like mold/dog we had to go buy detergent and wash them. There was a lot of things broken, not working, ants in the kitchen. DO NOT GO IN THE GARAGE... It's a junk yard. This property could be fabulous if it was treated like a vacation home that was being sold to travelers instead of " come stay at our house"

We love the Pelican's Nest--stayed for three nights and wish we stayed longer. Great location--can walk everywhere. Beautiful views. Peaceful and quiet. The house is very spacious, well appointed, terrific kitchen, great bed, just a perfect place to stay. Also so appreciative that dogs are welcomed, as ours loved Pelican's Nest too!

Great views
Margo G. from Trinity Center, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014
We met some relatives in Trinidad for a birthday and stayed at Pelican's Nest. We were 2 couples in our 50's. The house was lovely with great views. We especially liked sitting and reading in the two chairs looking out the master bedroom glass doors onto the harbor below. Loved the faint ringing of the bell buoy and the sound of the waves crashing as we fell asleep.

jenise p. from freehold, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014
We loved this place. Every night we dined on the deck with a gorgeous view and every morning walked down to the beach and watched the sea lions. All this in a walkable tiny town with not much more than a food store, coffee/breakfast place, seafood restaurant, art gallery and wine tasting. There is also a great hiking trail. We didn't even need to get in the car. The house had everything we needed and we really enjoyed our stay at Pelican's Nest!!

The house was nice, very comfortable. Beautiful views, close easy walk to beach. Two things made it especially desirable for us: tempurpedic beds, and dog friendly. Downstairs and upstairs showers were not the best we've experienced.

Very happy with the place, better than expected. Beautiful scenery of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom. A little disappointed with management for not returning my phone call with question about not getting the insurance for damage property since we didn't have little kids with us.

Mid may at Trinidad Bay turns out to be a wonderful place to watch whales. Better yet, when you watch them from one of your two decks. Wish we would have found this place his freshmen year (instead of his senior year).

Trinidad is awesome place for shopping, dining, wine tasting & Murphys' grocery all in walking distance. Hiking @ College Cove, State beach. From rental, path to Indian Beach, a medium challenge. Had a great visit with my sons, daughter in law and extended family & friends. Be back for sure.

The Best View in Trinidad
A guest from SEBASTOPOL, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013
We have stayed at Pelican's Nest twice in the last few months to create a spot to see our son and daughter who are going to school at HSU. The proximity to town and the beach as well as hearing the waves crashing on the beach will keep us coming back. Kitchen is well appointed and the neighborhood is quiet. Pathway from house leads right down to the beach. 20 minutes north of Arcata and the same distance further north takes you to Prairie Creek State Park a great place to spend the day hiking. Looking forward to returning soon!

Pelicans Nest
Heather M. from Seminole, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013
Trinidad Retreats took care of us again (this is our 4th house rented through them) when our son got a severe ear infection while on vacation in Trinidad and we had to delay our flight home by two days. They quickly found us another home to stay in and we were lucky enough to land in Pelican's Nest for the last 2 nights of our stay. The view is nothing short of breath-taking. The location is great - walking distance from the Eatery and a nice trail down to the beach for excellent tidepooling. The house is very unique, older with lots of character. Clean and well kept. I would warn those with small children that there are alot of beautiful & fragile knick knacks throughout the home to pay attention that your children don't touch. There is however a magical "secret room" for young children to play in and my two boys had a blast climing up the ladder and playing with the toys hidden up there. A lovely stay for sure!

Trinidad was always our go to spot when we lived in the area. After moving to So. California, we missed the clean beaches and cooler climate. So this house was a great escape from our hustle and bustle.We loved the trail to Indian beach, seeing the ocean everyday outside the huge picture windows and going out onto either patio to envelope that fresh ocean air was marvelous.The place had many fun play areas, a small loft in the master bath and a pool table in the garage. we would come again.

nice house, great weekend
michael h. from redding, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013
ideal location, awesome view, comfortable beds and chairs-though you will probably want to move some of the chairs, nice well equipped kitchen, overall we enjoyed the house and stay.problems- sand/dirt on the floor in several areas(not a biggie given location/use) upstairs toilet doesn't function well, upstairs gas fireplace was non functional, had a massive leak of dishwater in the kitchen one night, pool table was tucked away which means we had to move chairs and drag it out-and of course reverse the proc on leaving(not as bad as it might sound but still a chore), no laundry soap for washer(we left a bottle there),and there could be a little more light over the main(&only)large table-were we eat and play cards at at nite.as u can tell none of these problems are show stoppers, just annoyances that take a little bit away from overall enjoyment. think my star ratings give my overall opinion best.it is expensive, I think it could be a little cheaper for good value but I would still recc it to anybody.fyi, the local area is wonderful.

Glad you enjoyed Pelican's Nest despite those issues. This is the first we have heard about problems with the upstairs toilet or dishwasher. We will send our handyman over to take a look. Please notify right away of any problems so that we can deal with it directly and make the home more comfortable for you. The housekeepers are supposed to have all the soaps fully stocked. I appreciate your feedback and we will keep the pool table pulled out for others enjoyment and discuss improving the lighting with the owners. Thank you for choosing Trinidad Retreats. -Jonna

Awesome Property!
Michael L. from Steilacoom, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013
Great entertaining home with breath-taking view and the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. Pictures don't do it justice. The home is larger than it looks in the pics. The upstairs master bedroom and bathroom with it's own private deck is huge and includes a wet bar and small fridge. Small TV and DVD player up there too. Complete kitchen with lots of dishes and glassware, fully stocked, but some of the spices are old and some of the cookware hasn't been used for a while but everything worked fine. Large, newer fridge. Great open space downstairs and comfortable seating area with FM/CD player (bring your own CDs). Great selection of books in almost every room. The house feels lived in and lovingly appreciated by it's owners. Nice trail to beautiful Indian Beach with few visitors. Quiet neighborhood. Great restaurant at the end of the dock. Definitely would stay there, and look forward to it, again and again.

Mary C. from Bend, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013
The location of the house was great and we had a wonderful time exploring the town and hiking in the area! The property appeared well used, needs a thorough cleaning in and out, and has some deferred maintenance. We'd gladly refer the property to friends if some of that were taken care of. That said, we loved the area and would come back again.

Response from Trinidad Retreats
Pelican's Nest owners have been working diligentlly on projects to improve their home. This past year they re-did the deck and balcony and replaced some windows. They currently have plans to work on their coastal trail. I will share your sentiments with the owners. I am sorry you found deeper housekeeping needed. Our housekeepers clean and sanitize between every stay but I will have them spend more time there.

Amazing View
A guest from Eureka, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012
You could stare out those big windows for hours just watching the tide. The feeling of space looking over the ocean, that vast expanse, was so completely satisfying it was easy to overlook anything amiss. We had a few hiccups during our stay but the T.R., in conjunction with the owners, were prompt to fix the problem and bought us breakfast for our trouble. The house has a lovely and eclectic library of books, a decent selection of cookware (although a bit dated), and a cozy wood stove. The furniture configuration in the main room is a bit odd: bunched in corners and simultaneously spacious, but we moved items to suit us. The upstairs room was much colder than the rest of the house and lacked any other mode of heating, but the view was so beautiful it was easy to get over it and in summer this wouldn't be a problem. The real downside for a group of four was, who gets the "master" suite? The room upstairs has that breathtaking ocean view while the room downstairs is rather cramped and located next to the garage. This really is a perfect getaway for couples or a family with older kids. There is a great beach trail to Indian Beach, it's located right in town so we could walk around, and once again, the view the view the view!!

A guest from Keene, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 12 days in August, 2012
The house had issues. We were there for 2 weeks. There were no shades on some of the windows, and had privacy and sun wise issues. It was a beautiful view but just too bright with out shades to knock it down. TV too small for the room. Furnature hard to arrange to use the tv and have a view. Some of the house was blocked from us, and during a windy night there was a window open in that area, and there was a lot of racket going on. It needs some work for the price of it.

Clean, cozy with beautiful views
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012
A quiet little town with amazing views of the pacific ocean. Our 3 & 5 year old children had a great time playing on the beach and building forts out of the driftwood. The walk down to the beach Is a little steep, which might be hard for elderly or anyone with balance troubles. I also would like to mention the master bedroom is upstairs separate from the second bedroom and main level. This adds privacy, but can be concerning for families with young children. Since our children could manage stairs well enough they ended up sleeping upstairs in the master BR and my husband and i forgoed the wonderful master BR views for our peace of mind at night that our kids were safely sleeping away from the front door. Another great extra was a small loft full of toys for the kids to play with. My kids really enjoyed this little space all their own.
