It was great, ....except the master suite. There was no closet and the shower was impossible to use without flooding the bathroom floor. The kitchen was terrific.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your feedback. We will have our handyman take a look at the shower. We have not had an issue with it before. The owner does lock off the master closet for her personal storage space. We felt there was ample closet space in the other 2 bedrooms and downstairs closet for guests to hang clothes as needed plus the master bedroom has a large dresser and luggage rack. Glad you had a great stay. Hope you get to return and stay with us again! -Jonna

We were so pleased with our stay at this house. It's a beautiful home, well maintained, lovely yard, very clean, stocked with everything we needed for preparing meals, and was conveniently located just off Hwy. 101 (but we never heard traffic - the only sound we heard was the waves crashing on the beach!). I only wish we could've stayed longer...

This house is very well stocked with all you need for home meals, space to play games and enjoy the jacuzzi. I would only comment that the chairs around the fire pit are a bit difficult to get in and out of. Might reconsider something more comfortable. All in all a great home.

My family and I had a wonderful experience, Garden Pond Retreat was very peaceful, comfortable, open, airy and light filled. It is an excellent jumping off point for exploring the Redwoods, Ocean, tide pools, eateries, breweries. Nice to return to the retreat after a day of adventure and relax. Communication with Trinidad Retreats was professional, timely and easy. Thank you for sharing this home with my family

Highly recommended! We plan to stay again next time we come down to explore our family history in the Eureka area.

This was the perfect house and location for our family trip to the Northern California Coast and Redwoods. My family met up with my brother's family for a comfortable stay centrally located for great day excursions, including beach combing at Agate Beach, hiking Fern Canyon and Redwood groves, Humboldt Bay Kayak Eco-tour (great for first time kayakers), and some great breweries (especially liked Redwood Curtain Brewing in Arcata, but all the locals including Mad River and Six Rivers were great). Early morning walks right outside our door on the Hammond Trial along Mad River were especially relaxing.

In the evenings, we really enjoyed relaxing and socializing on the huge outside deck area with the clear wind screen, sunken hot tub, gas fire pit, and lot's of chairs and loungers provided.

The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dishes and had a very large island that served as a common gathering place while we prepared our meals and grilled outside. The bedrooms, beds, and bathrooms were clean and comfortable, with great views of the beautiful backyard pond and well kept yard and gardens. This place stands out as one of the nicest and well maintained homes on the street.

Manager's Response

We are delighted to hear you thoroughly enjoyed this brand new vacation rental. This truly is a gem. We appreciate your comments and business. Looking forward to your next visit! - Jonna

We stayed at this home in June with 4 adults and 2 kids. The house was a perfect fit. The home is well furnished for the number of guests it can accomodate. The family room has lots of seating, the dining room table is very large. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals and more. the location is great. It's right off the highway and just a short walk to the water and costal trail. There is a barrier island between the house and the big ocean waves. You can walk along the water at low tide. The gardens are AMAZING! The only minor complaints were sugar ants in the guest bath and the kitchen floor could use a mopping. We would totally stay again.

Manager's Response

We really appreciate your business and are delighted that you have found a "home away from home" in Garden Pond Retreat. We definitely vacuum and mop between every stay. We will add ant traps as needed. Thank you for your feedback, I will share it with our housekeeping staff.

My husband and I needed a much needed get away and this was the perfect place.

My mom past 2 years ago from Cancer and sometimes I need a recharge and a healing place.

This Oasis was huge! Very clean and you can see the ocean on the top floor. The pond was great! The fish came out in the morning and it was the perfect place to relax and meditate. The hot tub was an added bonus and helped relax my tight shoulders. We can't wait to stay here again!

It was just my husband and I but the home could easily fit a family. Amazing vacation! Must stay! Great location and we were so close to the ocean or the redwoods.

I also left my bikini behind and when I contacted them to mail it they were very kind to do so.

Manager's Response

We are so delighted to have Garden Pond Retreat as our newest vacation rental this summer. It is quickly become a crowd favorite. Sounds like it was exactly what you needed. I am so glad and look forward to your next stay! - Jonna
