A garage in paradise
It's a small place, but very comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a marvelous setting. I would gladly spend more time there.
Loved the Garage House!
The pics do not do it justice, it is absolutely beautiful! Perfect location in a quiet area but close to the freeway and the Redwoods. Cannot wait to sat again next year!
Perfect spot to relax
I found this place doing a US property search for beach front and instantly loved the feel. After 15 hours driving up the coast from San Francisco (true scenic route), we were delighted to see how cute and spacious the Garage House actually was in person.
Great kitchen space, huge shower, and beautiful windows looking out to the ocean. As a novice gardener, I loved wandering around the landscaping. Lots of hummingbirds, birds, and our new favorite banana slugs! We also had a couple visitors including some friendly cats and well, a less friendly skunk. Lol. With the windows open at night, I’m pretty sure I heard other critters as well but sadly couldn’t see them.
We loved the location next to the beaches. With a muscle condition, I could only make it up/down the stairs once for the beach directly below, but it was so fun exploring the tide pools and finding the stunningly colorful starfish. Just check tide charts and enjoy the walk. There were more accessible beaches all along the coast and we checked out several.
Having a washer and dryer was great for a longer stay and multiple trips hiking. It was really well placed for all the Redwood related parks and even the lagoons. While Trinidad itself is a bit small, the market was great and each restaurant was yummy. Try the lobster tail at Moonstone Grill! And make sure to have reservations.
It was hitting record highs during our stay, so I definitely missed my air conditioning, but it cooled off at night and was great sleeping with the windows open. The only thing I would change would be adding similar window treatments in the living room that are in the bedrooms. It was very bright and warm in the afternoons when we were home.
I appreciated all the literature about the area so we didn’t have to go hunting for brochures. I found several hikes and places to visit that I had not found on my own. The trails around the Trinidad State park area down to College Cove were just as exciting as the Redwoods. And while it may sound creepy to some, the old cemetery was an interesting stop with very old gravesites and some I’ve never seen the style of before. Early residents came from all over!
So overall, the neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors we encountered were friendly. The house was super clean and we had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed both exploring the area and relaxing at the house listening to the waves and watching the surfers. Glad we were able to stay!
All that and more
Beautiful home. All the amenities you could want or need. Simple comforts felt luxurious due to the artistic touches everywhere you look. When we couldn't figure out the TV remote, the property manager responded to our phone call by stopping by in person within 10 minutes and fixing it for us, and then started a fire going in the wood burning stove too! And oh that view! Stunningly beautiful. I never felt so sad leaving a vacation home as I did leaving here. "Garage House" and Trinidad: you have my heart.
The Perfect Package
We, two seasoned travelers, have stayed in many vacation rentals all over the world, and this is by far one of the best. Location, view and property were all beautiful. Perfect for two people and we both remarked that it felt like home. An unassuming entrance opens up to a garden paradise that we will never forget. Superb ocean views and the place was designed with guests in mind. Would return in a heartbeat!
