Great Stay in Trinidad

Review by Nigam A.
Awesome experience overall. Great views. Quick beach access. Good space and amenities in the house. Will certainly book again.

Manager Response:
Thank you for your recent stay at the Driftwood Beach House. Good to hear you had a great stay in Trinidad and it sounds like the home was a good fit for you. Close to the beach, close to town, and easy to access. We definitely look forward to having you again.


Review by
Large house with plenty of common space and reasonable equipment and furnishingsNice view.Minus: no curtains in the bedrooms, which means one wakes up at 6 am, not ideal for vacation.Right by HWY 101, with fairly heavy lorry traffic and 24 hr noise.Would warn a friend about the noise and the missing curtains

Manager Response:
Thank you for your recent stay at the Driftwood Beach Home. This is one of our budget friendly homes near the beach. It is located near the highway, making it convenient for guests who are coming and going or need quick access to head out toward the airport. The beach is very close and most of the windows of the home are bare, and facing the direction of the rising sun. The bedrooms are located on the rear side of the home, and do have sheer curtains as not a lot of light reaches the back most of the year. We will consider having a darker set available in the home so that guests can switch out if needed. Otherwise, we do hope you enjoyed your stay in the area.

Little River Driftwood House

Review by Anne N.
We had a wonderful time and were especially fond of the large spaces and driftwood touches! Literally around the corner from Moonstone Beach, a Humboldt favorite! We could see a couple paddle boarding in the river from the beach side view. I slept in the “rollaway” bed which was unbelievably comfortable. Easy access to many local places. I was tired of driving (we had a lot going on) so the young people (in their 20s) took an Uber to Arcata for browsing and ice cream which was a $20 ride split among the three of them! Not bad! So lovely at sunset time, very quiet and quaint with all the modern amenities. I love the flat screen covered by an abstract painting! I had just been thinking if an idea like that and enjoyed seeing it put in action. My local friend visited and said she would recommend it to visiting out-of-towners. Don’t miss the Westhaven Center for the Arts, having a sunset drink at Moonstone grill, and enjoying the charming town of Trinidad. Scenic drive is rugged but worth it to visit Hooda Point and marvelous Luffenholtz beach overlook-it will remain in your memory forever!

Perfect Getaway for Our Family

Review by Kimberly M.
Information about the check-in process was given well in advance (I loved the app it had everything we needed to help with our stay.) Check-in was a breeze. There was a sign clearly explaining where to park. The house was easy to find thanks to the pictures. We immediately put our things inside and walked to the beach. It was even more breathtaking than I imagined. The walk back up has a steep grade but if it’s too much for you to tackle, you can always drive the very short distance down. There was plenty of parking available. After the beach we showered and took a quick drive downtown. We ordered a pizza to go (delicious) and while waiting walked over to Murphy’s to pick up a few items. We visited Fern Canyon, Patrick’s Point, and the beach by the downtown area. We love this little town and the house was a perfect spot to set out each day. We loved hanging out at night in the sunroom and looking out all the windows. We stayed during the weekend when there wasn’t much traffic but noise could be a problem for some people who are sensitive. We slept like a rock in the comfortable beds! The linens were so soft and cozy. My son had reservations because there weren’t curtains on several of the windows but I assured him we were high enough that no one could see in. I loved not having a curtain to obstruct my view. Check-out was the easiest I’ve ever experienced. I can’t forget to mention the kitchen was well stocked with basic items that we would need like coffee filters to prevent us from buying them for two nights. We also found a sweet treat waiting for us on the counter. We enjoyed sitting on the deck one evening while we enjoyed a few. We would stay here again and recommend this wonderful property.

Manager Response:
What a great and thorough review of the Driftwood Beach Home and your stay. This simple home is quite a delight to stay at. I could sit and stare out the windows all day. The beach is just down the road and it is a very short drive to town. It sounds like you made it to some of Trinidad's notable places, such as Fern Canyon. A must see for everyone. Thank you for your recent stay and I do hope we have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

Great location, very clean, but pricey

Review by Dennis L.
We had a good stay. Place very clean and wonderfully located very close to Moonstone beach. Also very close to US 101. A professional baseball player could throw a baseball to the road if not for trees so a little noisy if you want to sit on the deck. Excellent parking around back of place. My only comment is its a bit pricey.

Driftwood Beach House 6-6-2019

Review by Barry E.
Everyone enjoyed the location and this rental while in the REDWOODS of Northern California.
4 out of 5 stars

cold but beautiful

Review by Edward H.
beautiful setting overlooking Moonstone Beach. Highway 101 road noise audible, especially at night, blocking the sound of waves. Heat is antiquated - single pellet stove, 2 of 3 wall heaters not working - very substandard and not disclosed.
3 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Sorry to hear you were disappointed in your stay. Yes, this is a very simple home, ideal for those seeking a base location for visiting the area. Only a few times have we heard the noise from the highway was a problem, so we are sorry to hear this. We have many homes in the area, if you come this way again, we can help match you with the perfect home for your stay. Thank you again for your recent stay.

Location, location, location!!!

Review by
Great location with excellent views! A short walk to the beach with lots to explore. A short drive in any direction will get you to many more great views and plenty of places to eat and explore. Nice scenic drives gets you to fern canyon and the avenue of the giants. Local towns with old time charm and open beaches to roam. The house was clean, well stocked with plates and glasses. Comforting and relaxing while overlooking the ocean. The owner was there within minutes when we had a question about the pellet stove. Overall we had a great time on our first visit to the great northwest coast. Our daughter graduated from Humboldt State University and was very familiar with the area to act as our personal tour guide. She said this house was in the best location you could ask for.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
It was a pleasure meeting you and your family and I am glad I was able to assist with the pellet stove. This Driftwood Beach Home is a great home base for visiting the area, as it is easy access north and south to many of the scenic sites. Congratulations to your HSU grad, and sounds like she is a great Tour Guide, as well. Please look us up again if you return to visit. We would love to have you back!

Relaxing long weekend in Humboldt

Review by
We enjoyed our stay in this home. The home was as advertised, very clean, all the kitchen necessities you could need, and a great variety of games and puzzles. We also loved the location within a few minutes walk to the beach. The only request we would make is for more blankets for the roll away beds. It would have been nice on the colder, rainy nights we were there.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
This is a great home! It is very simple in its layout and offerings, but the key feature is really the accessibility to the beaches from the house. I am always happy to hear that the Driftwood Beach Home offered a relaxing time to our area and I hope you will keep us in mind if you visit this way again.

nice location, great view

Review by Monique M.
The place was great and worked out well for our plans. The only thing I would recommend is better knives and a few more serving dishes. Everything else was great!

Manager Response:
Good to hear that the Driftwood Beach House worked out well for your plans. This is a simple place that is conveniently situated for those who love a quick walk to the beach. I will definitely put in for a knife upgrade; thank you for the recommendation. Thank you for choosing this home and for booking with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals. We hope you will return to stay with us again soon.

Loved staying in this beach house!

Review by
We loved the area and how close we were to the beach. It was less than a 5 minutes walk to the beautiful moonstone beach. The house was also clean, in good condition, comfortable, and very spacious. When there was an issue with a battery dying in a smoke alarm on a Saturday, we called the number left in the binder and someone was there to take care of it within a couple hours. The beds were comfortable and there was good bedding. The tv was also nice since it came with all the Hulu, Netflix, etc. options. We were very happy with our stay!

Manager Response:
Thanks for the nice review of the Driftwood Beach House. This is one of my favorite homes for accessibility to the beach and there is a delicious restaurant just down the hill, as well. I am glad to hear our staff was attentive and the home was comfortable for your use. Please look us up again if your return to stay in the Trinidad area again.

Perfect Getaway!

Fun at Moonstone Beach

Review by Joan R.
Our stay at Driftwood Beach House was very comfortable. Bedrooms had comfortable beds. A second bath would have been great, but we knew there was only one available. There was plenty of seating for viewing TV. The table in the family room was great for putting puzzles together. Many puzzles available to choose from. Of course, the view was amazing. The home was clean and the management team were very helpful. The Home App was quite useful. My family enjoyed walking to Moonstone Beach. We were fortunate to have great weather while we were in Westhaven. We were visiting other family so we enjoyed dining at The LightHouse in Trinidad, Larapins, and a new restaurant, Campground. We also went to Stone Lagoon a few times for surfing. Lots of Hiking to Trinidad from the house along the beach. A great stay!

Peaceful Retreat

Review by Susan D.
We loved the tranquil vibe of this lovely home. The ability to walk to the beach was lovely and the beautiful flowers along the road was very beautiful. Very comfortable beds and we appreciated the extra towels.

Manager Response:
The Driftwood Beach House is a lovely, simple home, but you cannot beat the location! Walking distance to several of Trinidad's most photographed beaches, wonderful views from the home, and a couple minute walk to one of Trinidad's fine dining establishments, the Moonstone Grill Restaurant, you almost cannot go wrong. Thank you for sharing your review with us and we hope you will make it back here again, for another peaceful retreat.
