The shell Seeker is a very modern up-to-date house. You will love it. Everything is new Fresh open Clean. First class. The view from the shell Seeker is probably one of the most beautiful views in the country on any Coast. You're overlooking the Trinidad Bay with all the rocks and high Cliffs Surfers Pacific Ocean for 5000 miles. It is pricey but it is worth it. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.
We stayed a week and could have easily stayed a month. Great to escape the summer heat. We had six adults--4 in the house at night and 2 in small RV outside.
This is the most amazing 2 bedroom property we have ever stayed (30+ VRBO/Trip Advisor rentals). The views of Trinidad Bay, Camel Rock, and Moonstone Beach are spectacular from the cliff top backyard, the living room, master bedroom and kitchen sink. Lots of outdoor furniture to enjoy the views. The house and views are even better than the great pictures provided by the owner.
The house is very quiet but it is within half a mile to Highway 101 which makes getting everywhere a breeze.
Barbara, the homeowner, is incredibly easy to deal with. She lives in the house during the winter months and gives it tender loving care. She has prepared the best brochure on the house and area recommendations. She is full of great recommendations on the fabulous sights and activities within an hour of the house.
Great kitchen. Well stocked with everything. Loved all the spices and extras. Had all the dishes, glasses and cook wear and outside gas grill that anybody would need. We did not eat out one night!!
Living room was extremely comfortable with beautiful wood burning fireplace for those cool days on the coast. Be prepared for several foggy days
The dining room table. None of us had seen the great design. Good for 4 people and easily expandable to seat 8 people
Laundry service was great idea. They pick up, wash and fold the clothes and deliver back the same day!!
Everybody in our group wants to return for a longer stay next time.
Activities not to be missed
Arcata farmers market on Saturday AM
Beaches down below the house, especially at low tide. Agate beach at prairie creek state park about 15 minutes away is terrific.
Hike the Redwoods in every direction. We did Humboldt state park this trip
Go fishing out of Trinidad. We caught great fish for 3 meals--go early in your trip
Go horseback riding in the Redwoods at Redwood National Park
Hike Trinidad Head
Pick blackberries everywhere.
