Gorgeous Location
A guest from Aurora, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014
We had a wonderful vacation at Driftwood. Everything was clean neat and comfortable. The location has a breathtaking view and large yard. We loved all of the conveniences of home including the small details. Driftwood was just as described. We didn't want to leave. The rental staff was gracious and quickly responsive to any need. Thank you. Hope to return next year.

Cozy and Comfortable with an AMAZING VIEW!
Alex G. from Chula Vista, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2014
We stayed in this quaint Driftwood home for 6 days and loved it! It's peaceful and there was plenty of room for our family of four. My kids are aged 11 and 7 and had a wonderful time playing in the large backyard with the toys provided. The house is located at a perfect starting off point for whatever adventure you plan for the day. The kitchen was clean and well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. The only thing that was needed that was not included was a beach blanket. We spent a lot of time at various beaches eating picnic lunches and a beach blanket would have been useful. I give Driftwood top marks for making our vacation time in NorCal restful and perfect.

Great feedback. I never thought to include a "beach blanket" but I will consider adding one before the next summer season! - Jonna

A cabin in the woods
Edward K. from Fresno, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in July, 2014
Hello,We found this cabin to be perfect. We loved having campfires each night. We BBQed on the deck almost every night as well. The large yard allowed for a lot of open play time for our kids. During the day we went on small day hikes on the many trails that are a short drive away. All in all we had another great experience with Trinidad Retreats. A final note, on the last night there we had a small hiccup. The staff at Trinidad Retreats were so nice and professional that they helped make a wonderful end to a fantastic trip.

Great spot..
A guest from Windsor, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014
Our stay was very enjoyable. The property is perfect for hanging out and its general location to many sights, beaches, restaurants and the town of Trinidad. Think rustic for the cabin and you will not be disappointed. Might want to bring your own pillows.... The upstairs bunk room worked well for teen age siblings. We would rent this place again.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Driftwood is definitely one of our more rustic homes and a real favorite among people coming to experience the Redwoods and great outdoors. I am sorry the pillows weren't to your liking. We just refreshed the pillows this past year but I bring my Temperapedic pillow whenever I travel. Some folks like fluffy, down pillows and others like firm pillows. Check out our Vacation Planner and Concierge Services on your next visit and let us help you book a fun, family activity. -Jonna

Awesome Ocean View
Kathryn B. from Huntington Beach, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2014
The view from the front yard is incredible. The cabin was cute and well equipped (dishes, towels etc.). For the most part it was clean, there were a couple of problem areas that needed some attention (mostly around the vents). The place could use some new pillows and bedding, small things. Overall it was a great place to stay, loved the bottle of wine waiting and listening to the ocean at night and sealions in the morning. Definitely would stay again.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Thank you for staying with us and for your helpful feedback. I will have our housekeeping staff pay more attention to the vent areas. We just got some new pillows and new blankets this past year but will take a look at the linens again. We look forward to you visiting us again. Should have a new flatscreen t.v. there before the summer season too! - Jonna

A Fun and Relaxing Stay
A guest from Paradise, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013
We really enjoyed our stay at Driftwood during Christmas week. The weather was spectacular and we enjoyed many amazing sunsets! We chose Driftwood because it was pet-friendly for our dogs. Overall, everything went well. If you bring your pooch, know that this yard is not fenced. Also, bring a bright flashlight for outside visits after dark. This property was cozy and represented accurately in the listing. It met our expectations for the most part and we would stay here again. Location is central, with easy access to beach and forest trails, as well as trips to Trinidad. Be sure to investigate pet-friendly parks--not all welcome dogs, but there are several that are great. There is an excellent brochure available in the house that was very helpful for where dogs were welcome. Thank you for a relaxing and memorable stay!

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Thanks for staying with Trinidad Retreats, we hope to see you next year. Yes, it is a great home to stay with pets, we have provided flashlights for our guests. So many of our guest keep coming back to us and we often offer discounts and feebees to our return customers~ Reid (owner)

Perfect Cabin in Trinidad
A guest from Oroville, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013
This was the seventh time we have stayed at this cabin. The sea lions serenaded us in the evening as they lie on the sea stack below. The staff greeted us with a basket of goodies and included a lovely bottle of wine in the refrigerator. Our only complaint would be that the beds upstairs have never been replaced and therefore are somewhat saggy and squeaky. But we love Trinidad and Driftwood Cabin.

So glad you are coming back each year. We hope you enjoyed the Pie and Thanksgiving Goodies. We will take a look at the beds thanks for the info. See you next year! ~ Reid

This house was everything we could ask for. For our tastes and vacation style, get away from the crowds and just relax with a glass of wine on the deck, this is paradise found. My only complaint would be that we can't afford to stay longer, but that's due to my budget limitation, not the rental rate.

Amazing location on the bluff; beautiful sunsets; really loved being able to bring the whole family, including our dog; overall property in decent condition; inside was clean on the surface; kitchen could use a deep cleaning; all bedding could use an upgrade - sheets/blankets/comforters very old - glad we brought our own warm comforter; managers were friendly & responsive; if one doesn't mind old cabin funkiness, it's fine but seems a few easy upgrades would make it a more comfortable stay; nice gas BBQ & new table and chairs on deck were key!

John M. from Salinas, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in June, 2013
We've been coming back for over 8 years. Over this time we haven't had to call the property managers but once or twice. This year I called them about a couple of issues. The response was amazing. I don't use that term lightly. Issues were addressed quickly and resolved. The customer service exceeded our expectations. I met Reid, when he and a friend delivered a new table for the deck. My impression is that Trinidad Retreats take care of the properties for both the owners and the guests. They are sincerely interested in providing their customers with a great experience.We thoroughly enjoy our annual retreat to Trinidad, and we keep coming back.

Great location
MANDY E. from La Palma, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013
The place is a great location for a visit to the state parks. Great view and loved the sea lions down below. My only complaint was the BBQ was disgusting. Definitely need a new one and only one burner worked which didn't get much hot, peeling paint and rust was not something I wanted to put my food on. Back sliding door is hard to slide open would have loved to keep it open to have that nice breeze come in, but no screen door. Also would love to see cleaner patio furniture. The overall experience was great though enjoyed the area. Would suggest the location to a friend.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Thank you for your feedback. We have now replaced the BBQ and will be getting new deck furniture. The coastal weather is very hard on BBQs and outdoor furniture. I will have our handyman take a look at the slider and see if we can get a screen door as well. I am glad your overall experience was positive. Driftwood Lane Cottage does have a special charm and a spectacular location. - Jonna

Driftwood Cabin at Trinidad
A guest from Hallettsville, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013
The cabin we rented was wonderful! The lot it sits on is private, beautifully landscaped and slopes down to a lovely high view over the ocean with crashing waves on the rocks, seals and great sunsets. The kitchen, washers, and bathrooms are certainly adequate. The woodburing stove in living room was great for cool evenings. The downstairs bedroom was great but the little twins upstairs were cute, but probablely a little tight for adults. The pictures you have on the internet, do not do this property justice! The cheesy white plastic table & chairs on deck are not that big a deal when everything else is so lovely. Our family of 3 adults and 2 kids loved our stay and wished we could stay longer. Trindad is charming and plenty to do (or not do) and your redwood A-Frame was a great surpirse.

Absolute Paradise On The Ocean With Sealions And Redwoods
Steve P. from Encinitas, CA recommends this property.

It's so beautiful and the location so perfect, it should be one of the 7 "Wonders Of The World". We will come every year and maybe even twice a year. This special place near all the Redwood Forests, on the ocean, and so quiet except for the wonderful sound of the sealions cannot be topped by any resort or location. It's simply Paradise.

Satisfied Visitors
Richard R. from Junction City, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013
Location was good with a nice clifftop view, albeit close to woodcutting and a mean dog at the neighboring roadside inn. Property was overall in good condition... Driveway entrance and drive around home is in need of gravel or roadbase, presently requiring use of 4WD to keep from tearing up the wet mud. Landscaping was nice and woodsy, but in need of some basic work (weeding blackberry vines overtaking otherwise beautiful azaleas, removing tree branches, fencing off rear yard from the rough impromptu public access down the cliffside). The east-facing front door needs an exterior mat and/or boot brush to keep from tracking in wet debris and mud, while abundant banana slug scat needed to be hosed off the exterior walls and door. The rental was generally in good condition inside, only needing some bathroom upgrades (new vanity and painting of filled holes left by towel rack replacements). All in all, a convenient and homey place to stay from which to visit the redwoods and Trinidad.

Was disapointed that the outdoor furniture was in very poor shape and not clean. One chair inparticular was broken and couln't use to enjoy the wonderful view. The lock box for the keys was difficult to open and even jammed when we attempted to lock the keys upon our departure. Loved the location, minor improvements needed. Not enough fire wood.

Thank you for your feedback. We will be ordering new outdoor furniture before next summer, including a picnic table. I will notify our handyman about the lock box. We supply a starter load of wood for all of our guests. The local supermarket sells bundles of firewood. -Jonna

Great cabin & location, very dirty
Samantha C. from Roseville, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012
the cabin and location were awesome. however, the cleanliness of the cabin was very poor. i dropped some food in the kitchen and went to clean in up and there was all kinda nasty grime on the floor. which was interesting when there all kind of notes around the house about guests doing there part to clean up. first it needs to be clean when we get there. the cabinets where the plates, etc, were in had dirt in them. i re-washed everything before we used it. the fridge though was spotless. the bathroom needs re-done and smells like sewer at times. quality of furniture and appliances was very low - much from the 80 -90s, and this was not even good quality 80-90s.the cabin and area were gorgeous. i was disappointed in bringing my friend there though, due to care of the cabin. i wouldn't re-rent.. i'd try somewhere else.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
We have notified our housekeepers to check all plateware and dishes in cupboards for cleanliness. This house does not have a dishwasher and apparently some guests put away dirty dishes. That is unacceptable and we apologize. We are sorry you didn't notify us until after your stay otherwise we would have sent the housekeeper up to clean everything in the kitchen for you. - Jonna

A haven in the mist
Julie C. from Kintbury, Hungerford, West Berkshire recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012
We enjoyed a lovely two night stay in this property which ticked all the boxes for an English family of five looking for a "cabin in the woods" experience. I loved having the sea at the bottom of th garden (although I didn't see it properly until the morning of the last day when the mist finally cleared!). Trinidad is a great little town, and we enjoyed exploring tidepools at Patricks Point as well. The only downside was a very faint smell of dog in the main bedroom. I know dog lovers must be grateful to find someone to take their pets, but it can be offputting for others. It didn't spoil the stay though. Thank you!

Debbie T. from Newark, CA recommends this property.

greatly enjoyed my stay. Home had everything we needed, but there were a few very minor things: lighting in the livingroom wasn't the greatest, couldn't figure out how to turn on the outdoor lights, and the housekey lock could have used instructions on putting it back together. I would definitely stay again.

Beautiful House in Beautiful Location
A guest from Glendale, AZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012
My husband and I stayed 7 nights in Driftwood, and it was our best vacation. The house is a beautiful cabin with a full kitchen, full size washer and dryer, wood stove, TV, and beautiful view of the ocean. We sat out by the ocean at the end of the property each morning and watched the seals with our binoculars. This is a great rental in a beautiful location.

This is a charming little home with a lovely view of the ocean. A group of seals was staying on the beach near the A-Frame while we were staying here, and it was a delight to hear them barking throughout the day. The night sky was amazing as well, as with no street lights or city lights, you could see the stars with amazing clarity.

A wonderful place for a cozy family Christmas!
Karen B. from Stoughton, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in December, 2011
We spent our first Christmas away from home in 20 years in this beautiful cabin overlooking the ocean. We could hear the seals barking! Loved the wooded, quiet, secluded setting that was close to the beach and Redwoods Natl Forest. Comfy beds, nice wood-burning stove kept it nice and warm. The boys said the long yard leading down to the ocean bluff calls out for a bocce ball set, and I could have used a measuring cup in the otherwise well-stocked kitchen. A perfect family getaway!

This is an incredible gem! We barely want to say how wonderful it was for fear that it won't be available the next time we want to go back. We loved the rustic charm, cozy comfort, and breath-taking view! That we had to re-wash the dishes and the kitchen lacked a few key conveniences (e.g., measuring spoons/cups) would be the only minor "complaints."

Awesome view, secluded and PET FRIENDLY!
Rodney L. from Pleasant Hope, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011
We had a wonderful time at this little A-frame. It was clean, efficient, had an awesome view and our little dog thought she was in heaven! We took several day trips and it was great to be able to just let her run after being cooped up in the car all day. The only problem we had was that the heat didn't work. Luckily there was a wood stove with plenty of wood so we were able to keep the chill knocked off, but at times it was inconvenient to have to do that. You might want to make sure that this has been fixed before renting this property if you don't want to deal with that. Other than the heat, we were very satisfied and would recommend it!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE... WONDERFUL MOMENT IN TIME
A guest from Winnemucca, NV recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in September, 2011
Negatives first: 1. Slug excrement pretty much all over back of house at entrance 2. deck furniture molded plastic we really could not use it 3. under kitchen sink is moldy and needs to be thoroughly treated 4. bathroom shower curtain liner was slimy and moldy.......i treated the curtain myself because simply did not want to shower with that at my feet 5.spare lightbulbs would be helpful as two bulbs were out on arrival 6. Security: husband thinks deadboldt at back door can be easily accessed by just breaking a window pane allowing entry. The front security light was burned out. 7. General: The entrance to Driftwood Lane is framed by a very unacceptable property that gives all the wrong immediate impressions, makes you wonder what you are headed for if you have not been here before..... 8. considerable cobwebs, clumps of dust (large) at top of A frame at front of house (so easy to remove but not done) POSITIVES: I WOULD DEFINTELY GO BACK AND STAY HERE, EVEN THOUGH.... THIS IS AN UNQUESTIONABLY BEAUTIFUL PLACE THAT DESERVES TO BE BETTER MAINTAINED. THE PROPERTY IS GOURGEOUS. WHEN THE FOG LIFTED AND THE SUN CAME OUT WE COULD SEE, AS WELL AS HEAR, THE SEALS?,SEA LIONS?..THEY WERE SUCH A DELIGHT! THE TRINIDAD AREA/PEOPLE ARE VERY WELCOMING! WONDERFUL ACCESS TO MANY TYPES OF POSSIBLE RECREATION. AS I SAID I WOULD GO BACK IN A HEARTBEAT!!!!! MY HUSBAND AND I WERE ON THIS TRIP TOGETHER MOST OF THE NEGATIVES ARE HIS THOUGHTS BUT TRUTHFUL IN DOING THE REVIEW IT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PROPERTY TO BE HONEST AND FACTUAL. PERSONALLY I WAS VERY COMFORTABLE HERE, ENJOYED THE WONDERFUL AIR, MOISTURE, SLEPT GREAT, FOUND THE KITCHEN EASY TO USE (IMPORTANT TO THE COOK).

no customer service
Gabor N. from San Diego, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
very poor treatment from the management: Trinidad Retreats. No customer service is an understatement. I would not recommend the place unless it was managed by a different company. For my $1700 that I paid for a week, I was not treated professionally at all. When I asked to use a different payment than I ghave for the deposit, they charged my credit card and said they would refund my first $1500. Nothing happened for 8 days, as I waited and inquired patiently, I was told to wait and that it was refunded on day 1 and it must be my bank's fault. They even accused me that I was trying to scam them and it was just a plot, I must be having my money. I finally started to track it down, spent 3 days calling them, their payment processing agency and my bank, for no result: it turned out the payment processing never wired the money, they just sat on it then they said it was a software error. To add insult to injury, I was offered a gift certificate which I never received. The rental process of the vacation was truly a disappointment. It's sad that such a beautiful place is represented so poorly by a company you have to go through for the vacation rental and feel like you are scumbag dishing out $1700 for a week. I thought for this kind of money they would treat you at least as properly as a Day's Inn. the house has no wi-fi and a tiny television set. phone reception is poor in the are too. Otherwise the house and the location are both fabulous, we enjoyed it very much.

What an amazing property! It was a well-maintained and feels like home the minute you step foot on the property! There is lush landscape that has a very maintained yet rustic feel to it. The view from the deck and really, any view from the backyard is breathtaking since the ocean views occupy the horizon. We had a small BBQ with family & the kids enjoyed the backyard the most! The wood stove in the living area was a welcomed amenity, it gets chilly once the sun sets. The home was well stocked and we really enjoyed reading the guest book of past vacationers and their similar experiences of the sea lions, rabbits, and ocean views. It was a delightful and peaceful stay!

We recently did a family girls trip and rented this house. The house was small but very clean and cute inside. We loved the stay there. The view of the ocean from the house was great. The view from the edge of the back yard was even better. From there we were able to see the waves crashing and seals sun bathing on the rocks below. We enjoyed our stay at this house very much and would love to come back for another girls trip.
