We now are open to host stays for July 1st and beyond!

*Guest reserving home must be 25 years or older, be staying at the property the entire time and will be considered the responsible party for this booking. This home IS pet friendly.

Pelican's Nest is located in a quiet neighborhood on a private street. This beautiful home sits in close proximity to the homes adjacent homes so is not well suited for large, noisy gatherings. This home is perfect for small families, or adults looking for a peaceful, relaxing getaway. No garage parking available. There are two compact guest parking spaces on the driveway and one additional parking spot for daytime visitors. No additional street parking available.

This Cape Cod style house is perfect for the book & beach lover. It is in town, above a trail to Indian Beach and boasts sweeping ocean views. Cozy up and read by the wood burning stove, play a game or just take in the seascape below. Pelican’s Nest has a great nautical, beach style décor. This home is whimsical and full of character. The main level offers an open eat in kitchen with large pantry that is a cook's delight. This opens to the living, dining room, and newly rebuilt deck so one can cook while taking in the ocean views. The great room also has oak floors, a picnic style dining table, sofa & chairs and a flat-screen T.V. Both bedrooms have Tempurapedic beds. The second bedroom and bathroom with tub/shower are on the main floor. This bedroom has a queen bed, small lots of books and is very cozy. Upstairs is a large master bedroom & bathroom with a romantic balcony to take in the sweeping ocean views below. This room has bamboo floors, a wet bar, very small T.V. and ocean views even from the bathtub/shower! The large bathroom also serves as a closet/dressing room and has a fun play loft for older children (accessible by ladder not suitable for young children). The garden offers a lovely meditation bench overlooking the coastline. All of this beauty and comfort plus your pets are welcome too! Enjoy some fun in the garage with a pool table that also converts into a ping pong table.

*Please Note: The owners of Pelican's Nest have their own private retreat below the property. They like to think of it as their "Writer's Workshop". Since they live in nearby Arcata, they occasionally retreat to their workshop during the day but will not bother you during your vacation. They are very friendly and if you should see them coming or going please feel free to say hello and ask them any questions about their home or the greater Trinidad area. They have great stories to share!

We loved staying in Trinidad and this house was in the perfect location to walk or bike around town. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, the decorating was very cute and beach appropriate. We liked the pathway around where we took pictures and picked blackberries. The only disappointment was that the shower in the master did not work so 4 people had to share a shower. We would DEFINITELY stay here again.

Manager's Response

Thank you for staying at the Pelicans Nest. My apologies for the shower issues, the home owners are now planning to do a whole remodel on the upstair bathroom.

We love this location, and most of all we love the cleanest kitchen ever! But, we found out 3 weeks before (after all payments made) that replacing the floors would "probably" be completed the morning of our arrival. That was not respectful of our plans, and I said as much. Also, can you please do something about the mold on the leaves of the huge Schefflera upstairs? One of our guests had a really difficult time breathing the next morning. Finally, I left a message for the caretakers that the upstairs shower leaks right into the living room. That may be part of the floor problem. Hope that helped you find the root cause.

Manager's Response

My apologies for the mixup about the construction plan but I am happy that things worked out and you were able to enjoy your time at Pelicans Nest. Thank you for your feedback about the house. ~Hope

Views were unbelievable and decor was fun. Kitchen fully stocked.

The view out the back windows and decks is striking. A few of the days were stormy and it was cozy to hear the wind and rain pound the house and see the squalls run across the bay. The beach trail is very convenient. The kitchen is sizable as is the main living room and master. There are a handful of small restaurants in Trinidad but as it was late March, the town was very sleepy and not much was going on yet. The h

I can not begin to explain the amazing view from both porches as well as the upstairs bed. We highly recommend Pelican’s nest

Pelican's Nest is in a great location, beautiful view. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfy and everything clean. The agents at Trinidad Retreats were super helpful all through the process. The house is quite a strange layout and there is quite a lot of stuff in there, which can make it feel like you are intruding on someone's home. Great for a short stay.

Manager's Response

Glad you enjoyed the location and views. The owners of this special home live locally and enjoy their beach house with their grown children and grandchildren hence some family photos and a "cozy, lived in" feel. They are avid collectors and readers, have extensive book collections as well as nautical treasures. I wish I understood what you found strange about the layout. The combination open living and dining room as well as large kitchen have incredible sweeping views. The one bedroom and bathroom on each of the 2 levels of the home create great privacy for the guests. I would be happy to assist you in choosing another one of our many vacation homes next time that better suits your desires. We appreciate your business and are glad you had a great stay overall. - Jonn

We booked the house (Pelican's Nest) because of the proximity to the redwood forest. We struck gold with this house because the town of Trinidad was a perfect little town. The house was within close distances to multiple beaches and fun littl local restaurants. The house itself was very charming. The view from the back porch was amazing. The master bedroom has its own balcony as well. There is nothing better than falling asleep (or waking up) to the gentle sound of waves crashing on the beach. i would definitely recommend this house for beach exploring or redwood forest adventures!!!

Jonna from VRBO was great! We were looking for some specific features due to one guests physical restrictions and Jonna stuck with me through all the questions and sorting options. The house we ended up with, Pelican's Nest worked well. FYI for anyone looking for accessible, this home is good for mobility impaired but is not W/C accessible. The door on the main floor bathrm is too narrow for a walker or W/C, but otherwise great main floor living and bedrm for wheeled walkers. Upstairs retreat (bedroom and bath) was wonderful. Spectacular views on both levels and COMFY beds could have stayed in bed storm watching all day! Access to beach, and the village was so easy.
TV's are a subpar for the rest of this home, get program schedules at .
Lighting is limited, too dim to use the dining table for games after the sunset, but hope they improve that.
Wi-Fi was good, easy log in and supported Roku and 2 devices easily.
Wood stove was stocked up, we did not light it, but nice to see it useable!
The kitchen was amazingly equipped. If you want to cook, then it seems like everything you could want is here! Take the time to look in every cabinet for supplies before buying. The home was super clean and nicely decorated. Lots of books & games, the pool cues were worn out so no pool play.
Murphy's Market & Deli market had everything we needed for at home use, but we ate out often. The Seascape Restaurant, Trinidad Bay Eatery & Gallery were great, friendly staff and good food, able to accommodate special diet request with a smile. The Lighthouse Grill was okay, not as friendly and the fried foods were greasier than most. The shops were fun and the staff was so helpful. The beaches and scenic drives were awesome. Watch for wash outs this time of year.
One more plug for the comfortable beds, tempur-pedic mattresses were nice to find! Lots of pillow choices and extra throws and blankets were available.

We loved the location and just a few mintues walking through wooded path to a gorgeous sunny beach! Lounge chairs in the main deck in particular would be a big plus. That was the main miss in this house! Nothing decent to sit on in the main deck. The table and chairs on the main deck was very very old and dirty and should be recycled or trashed. It was unusable. I would highly recommend it for those with dogs but those w/o dogs could probably find a better house for the price. The house is on the small size, perhaps 1,000 sp ft but the 3 of us found in cozy. 2nd bedroom does not have any view. Master bedroom's view is what's showon on the photo. We discovered a pool table in the garage and a washer and dryer, which was nice! The views were spectacular. You can walk to the lighthouse cafe and the beachcomber restaurant in less than 7 mins, and that is a huge big plus too! Great location. The house's furniture is kind of funky and many things do not match, but I'm o.k. w/ that if my dogs can be there! Lots of excellent books though although I found a "how to have sex in the office" inappropriate book that was probably not meant to be among the shelves in the batchroom where there are many children's toys.

Manager's Response

Glad you enjoyed the location, ocean views and sharing the space with your dogs. We appreciate your feedback. Outdoor furniture does take a beating with the ocean air and rainy climate. We will look at updating the outdoor furniture before our next busy season. We will review the books on the shelves as this is an extensive owner collection and remove any that do not belong in a family rental. We appreciate your repeat business and look forward to your next stay.

This house was great for our family of four! The view was just beautiful! The walk down to the beach was fun for my girls, and everything in town is within walking distance. My husband and I could not get over how quiet the setting was here. We heard only one siren, no traffic noise, I don't even think we heard an airplane overhead!! Just the sounds of the water down below, and the bell of the buoy. Beds were comfy, everyone slept well. We all agreed, we'd stay again.

Our stay at the Pelican's Nest has been the most wonderful experience. The location is amazing and although there are many different things to do in the area, our favorite was just enjoying the house. My 10 year old said it was better than Disneyland! The kids were so busy playing with puzzles, reading books and playing in the loft area that Daddy got to enjoy a nap and Mommy had time to read a whole book. The home is very thoughtfully stocked with books and throw blankets to enjoy. The kitchen is well stocked with necessities and the grocery store is a 10 minute walk away. The beds were very comfortable and the view from both floors is unparalleled. My family and I look forward to returning.

Lovely house! Views were even better than we expected from the photos. My husband and I stayed in Pelicans Nest along with my parents, who have some mobility issues. It was great that they could stay on the first floor and not have to deal with stairs at all, while we enjoyed the spacious and comfortable upstairs suite. It's a nice quiet neighborhood and Trinidad is a perfect home base for exploring the redwood coast. I recommend the hike up Trinidad Head and a kayak tour of the harbor. Would definitely stay here again.

This place is all about the location. It's right above the beach, with an access trail that goes straight down to the shore.

Positives: Parking was a breeze. The master bed was comfortable. The house had good heating. There was a great dining table that we didn't use.

Negatives: While the house's decor has a lot of charm, it needs some serious TLC and upgrades. The kitchen is a museum of outdated equipment and dishware. The lighting is either bright fluorescent or subtle lamps. There is no comfortable way to wind down and watch TV after a long day, and the TV itself was difficult to use and too small for the space. Even the pool table was missing balls and lopsided.

Lastly, there was an ant problem in the kitchen, though the house in general was clean.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for your constructive feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall. We will share your suggestions with the homeowners and will look to improve some of these things.

The location of this house was ideal. You really can't get any better! The home was clean but due to it being older there was a musty smell upstairs and definitely a slight smell of dog which you should expect with a pet friendly home. We left the doors/windows open at all times to smell the ocean. The home was cleaned well but because it is well worn it doesn't feel sparkling clean. And, having a Murphy bed in the bathroom is a bit odd but I'm OK with a funky beach home. Character is good. I wouldn't rule out staying here again. It was comfortable enough. The rental agency was great. And, again, you can't beat the location! We had a great weekend.

We walked through town with our dogs and everyone was so friendly. Just a wonderful experience all around. We drove down to the redwoods and they were as beautiful and amazing as we had remembered them! The only thing we did have to do was fill up the propane bottle for the bbq, as it was empty. We had bbq almost every night we were there. Had a wonderful anniversary trip!!

We come to Trinidad often and stay 7 - 10 days. We love this small seaside town for its quiet and natural pleasures -- walking on the beaches, hiking in the Redwoods, watching the sunsets over the beach.

We chose this specific property for its "dog-friendliness". However, we did not bring the dog after all.

Pros about this property: quiet and private location, great views of the harbor; nice size rooms; large kitchen.

Cons: several appliances did not work, including wall clocks, instant hot water tap, trash compactor; spotty lighting with no ceiling lights; lots of pots and pans but in questionable condition (e.g. corroded teflon); upstairs bathroom funky and inconvenient.

Trinidad is indeed a very special seaside town. We appreciate your feedback and will share your thoughts with the homeowners. We look forward to you visiting us again. - Jonna

From the moment we got here our stay was fantastic. The house was bright sunny and clean. Bedrooms (and beds) were very comfortable. Location is the best and the views were amazing! Walking distance to everything in Trinidad, and a short drive to Arcata. We didn't use the fireplace because there was only one log and no kindling. Also bring coffee and tea (I left some for the next visitor (you're welcome). If you've been accustomed to a welcome basket, there won't be one, other than doggy treats, so don't be disappointed. Other than that the accommodations were very nice and the location is the best Thanks and we hope to stay here again in the near future!

We actually added a night to our stay, we loved it so much. The staff made it happen quickly - impressed and very happy! The rental was just as it is pictured and described. The only thing I would wish for is comfortable chairs to sit out on the deck. The ones there now are not for sitting and relaxing. The town is easily walkable, a couple of restaurants within walking distance, and a beautiful path along the cliff to the pier or down to the beach below. And, an easy drive to the National and State parks, kayaking, microbrewpubs, etc.

Nice home in Trinidad easy walk to everything. Big kitchen, well equipped, very comfy master bed. Sunny patio. My only complaint was the TVs. Master TV was so tiny it was useless and the position of the living room TV to furniture was so unworkable we had to rearrange furniture to watch. Also the cable/sat was not working properly and had to have mgt. come fix it. But that was exceptionally prompt and he was very nice. Overall it was a good property.

We love this place for many reasons. First, it takes dogs-we vacuumed daily to help keep the hair down like we do at home and that is a small price to pay to be with them. Secondly, the location in town and view justifies the cost; the house itself is a nice kind of funky beachy but it's warmer and less windy there. Third, the beach is minutes away and just gorgeous. We try to come annually.

House was in a perfect location, the ocean view was incredible! With so many windows, you got an awesome view everywhere. Watched whales and sea lions from the living room. A great 2 bedroom house, was perfect for myself, husband and son. Very clean, well maintained, loved the decorations! You could walk down the path to the beach or into town, very good location. It is in a neighborhood so you do have neighbors, but was very quiet, never a problem. Kitchen was very well equipped. Would definitely come back here again.

The Redwood National and State Parks area is our favorite place on earth. We deeply love the redwoods and the elk. We come there a few times every year. It feels like home. Trinidad is where we always stay, and this property was the most beautiful, wonderful place we have ever stayed. It was perfect. The view and sound of the waves and seals was extraordinary, and the property itself is gorgeous, comfortable, and welcoming. We especially loved the deck, the kitchen, the Tempurpedic beds, the awesome selection of books, and the ping pong table. The location is also perfect, with easy access to Indian Beach as well as our beloved Beachcomber Caf (you've got to try the scones). If only we could live there year round. It is paradise. We will be back!

My husband and I, along with ChiChi the Chihuahua, stayed for four nights in mid October. The home was very welcoming and comfortable, with lots of interesting knick-knacks and hundreds of books lining the walls. All our needs -- from towels and toiletries to plates and cookware -- were met. The hosts even provided treats and waste bags for ChiChi. Trinidad offers outstanding views of the coastline, and this home is the ideal place to enjoy them. Huge sliding glass windows upstairs and downstairs let in the warm ocean air. When the squalls rolled in, we storm watched from the cozy chairs. A trail right out the door led down to a sandy almost-private beach. When you visit, don't forget to stop by Katy's for some smoked fish!

The proximity to town and the beach as well as hearing the waves crashing on the beach will keep us coming back. Kitchen is well appointed and the neighborhood is quiet. Pathway from house leads right down to the beach. 20 minutes north of Arcata and the same distance further north takes you to Prairie Creek State Park a great place to spend the day hiking. Looking forward to returning soon!

Trinidad Retreats took care of us again (this is our 4th house rented through them) when our son got a severe ear infection while on vacation in Trinidad and we had to delay our flight home by two days. They quickly found us another home to stay in and we were lucky enough to land in Pelican's Nest for the last 2 nights of our stay. The view is nothing short of breath-taking. The location is great - walking distance from the Eatery and a nice trail down to the beach for excellent tidepooling. The house is very unique, older with lots of character. Clean and well kept. I would warn those with small children that there are alot of beautiful & fragile knick knacks throughout the home to pay attention that your children don't touch. There is however a magical "secret room" for young children to play in and my two boys had a blast climing up the ladder and playing with the toys hidden up there. A lovely stay for sure!

Trinidad was always our go to spot when we lived in the area. After moving to So. California, we missed the clean beaches and cooler climate. So this house was a great escape from our hustle and bustle.We loved the trail to Indian beach, seeing the ocean everyday outside the huge picture windows and going out onto either patio to envelope that fresh ocean air was marvelous.The place had many fun play areas, a small loft in the master bath and a pool table in the garage. we would come again.

ideal location, awesome view, comfortable beds and chairs-though you will probably want to move some of the chairs, nice well equipped kitchen, overall we enjoyed the house and stay.
problems- sand/dirt on the floor in several areas(not a biggie given location/use) upstairs toilet doesn't function well, upstairs gas fireplace was non functional, had a massive leak of dishwater in the kitchen one night, pool table was tucked away which means we had to move chairs and drag it out-and of course reverse the proc on leaving(not as bad as it might sound but still a chore), no laundry soap for washer(we left a bottle there),and there could be a little more light over the main(&only)large table-were we eat and play cards at at nite.
as u can tell none of these problems are show stoppers, just annoyances that take a little bit away from overall enjoyment. think my star ratings give my overall opinion best.
it is expensive, I think it could be a little cheaper for good value but I would still recc it to anybody.
fyi, the local area is wonderful.

Manager's Response

Glad you enjoyed Pelican's Nest despite those issues. This is the first we have heard about problems with the upstairs toilet or dishwasher. We will send our handyman over to take a look. Please notify right away of any problems so that we can deal with it directly and make the home more comfortable for you. The housekeepers are supposed to have all the soaps fully stocked. I appreciate your feedback and we will keep the pool table pulled out for others enjoyment and discuss improving the lighting with the owners. Thank you for choosing Trinidad Retreats. -Jonna

Great entertaining home with breath-taking view and the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. Pictures don't do it justice. The home is larger than it looks in the pics. The upstairs master bedroom and bathroom with it's own private deck is huge and includes a wet bar and small fridge. Small TV and DVD player up there too. Complete kitchen with lots of dishes and glassware, fully stocked, but some of the spices are old and some of the cookware hasn't been used for a while but everything worked fine. Large, newer fridge. Great open space downstairs and comfortable seating area with FM/CD player (bring your own CDs). Great selection of books in almost every room. The house feels lived in and lovingly appreciated by it's owners. Nice trail to beautiful Indian Beach with few visitors. Quiet neighborhood. Great restaurant at the end of the dock. Definitely would stay there, and look forward to it, again and again.

The location of the house was great and we had a wonderful time exploring the town and hiking in the area! The property appeared well used, needs a thorough cleaning in and out, and has some deferred maintenance. We'd gladly refer the property to friends if some of that were taken care of. That said, we loved the area and would come back again.

Manager's Response

Pelican's Nest owners have been working diligentlly on projects to improve their home. This past year they re-did the deck and balcony and replaced some windows. They currently have plans to work on their coastal trail. I will share your sentiments with the owners. I am sorry you found deeper housekeeping needed. Our housekeepers clean and sanitize between every stay but I will have them spend more time there.

You could stare out those big windows for hours just watching the tide. The feeling of space looking over the ocean, that vast expanse, was so completely satisfying it was easy to overlook anything amiss. We had a few hiccups during our stay but the T.R., in conjunction with the owners, were prompt to fix the problem and bought us breakfast for our trouble. The house has a lovely and eclectic library of books, a decent selection of cookware (although a bit dated), and a cozy wood stove. The furniture configuration in the main room is a bit odd: bunched in corners and simultaneously spacious, but we moved items to suit us. The upstairs room was much colder than the rest of the house and lacked any other mode of heating, but the view was so beautiful it was easy to get over it and in summer this wouldn't be a problem. The real downside for a group of four was, who gets the "master" suite? The room upstairs has that breathtaking ocean view while the room downstairs is rather cramped and located next to the garage. This really is a perfect getaway for couples or a family with older kids.
There is a great beach trail to Indian Beach, it's located right in town so we could walk around, and once again, the view the view the view!!

The house had issues. We were there for 2 weeks. There were no shades on some of the windows, and had privacy and sun wise issues. It was a beautiful view but just too bright with out shades to knock it down. TV too small for the room. Furnature hard to arrange to use the tv and have a view. Some of the house was blocked from us, and during a windy night there was a window open in that area, and there was a lot of racket going on. It needs some work for the price of it.

A quiet little town with amazing views of the pacific ocean. Our 3 & 5 year old children had a great time playing on the beach and building forts out of the driftwood. The walk down to the beach Is a little steep, which might be hard for elderly or anyone with balance troubles. I also would like to mention the master bedroom is upstairs separate from the second bedroom and main level. This adds privacy, but can be concerning for families with young children. Since our children could manage stairs well enough they ended up sleeping upstairs in the master BR and my husband and i forgoed the wonderful master BR views for our peace of mind at night that our kids were safely sleeping away from the front door. Another great extra was a small loft full of toys for the kids to play with. My kids really enjoyed this little space all their own.

Thank you for your feedback. The homeowners have plans to improve the trail so it is less steep and easier to navigate. We are glad you enjoyed Pelican's Nest and its amazing views. It is one of our newest vacation homes. Please visit us again. - Reid
