Alegria is a two-story, two thousand square foot house on three-quarters of an acre featuring hand-hewn salvaged Redwood beams, cherry window sash, red oak floors, natural cedar siding, and cathedral ceilings. Sleeps up to nine in two large bedrooms, a smaller bedroom and a guest space with bunk beds. Two full baths, one with a soaking tub, spacious kitchen, and handmade cherry dining table that will seat eight. Extensive Monet-style secluded gardens and patio with Adirondack chairs and seaside perch 250 feet above the sea. Access to spectacular beaches, coves and offshore sea stacks via community trail. (No direct access from house. We are on a bluff overlooking the ocean with the fabulous views!)
Two minutes and two miles to Trinidad markets and restaurants, one minute off freeway but an oceanic soundscape. Five to ten minute drive to expansive beaches, parks, lagoons, hiking trails, and secluded coves, and 30 minutes to Prairie Creek State and National Redwood Park. A truly international house belonging to a family of explorers, featuring folk art collected the world over and photographs from trips to remote corners of the earth. A one-of-a-kind treasure -- warm, cozy and inviting with a bird's eye view of infinite horizons.

Left on 03/09/2014 for a stay in March 2013 | Wi nativeReviewed Mar 9, 2014Stayed Mar 2013
We had a fantastic spring break here with kids and another family. the beautiful view of the rocky coastline still sits in my mind as a reminder of the gorgeous California coast. The house was clean, easy to accomodate 2 families with kids, and close to local attractions including hiking in the redwoods. i highly recommend it and would go back to this same location if i am ever in northern Ca again.
