Property Reviews 
Moonstone Crossing Not an easy stay
Monica D. from Tucson, AZ does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2014
I have rented from Trinidad retreats in the past and have been very satisfied. This experience was a bit different. I wasn't expecting the same caliber of home that I had in the past, since this was not on the beach and was less expensive, but I would have liked to been told that you could not use the water for drinking and that there was a freeway next door with construction occurring right outside our deck. The "walk" to the beach was down a busy road with many blind corners.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
The water is definitely drinkable and is filtered. Unfortunately we have no control over Cal Trans and their retrofitting project of the highway overpass. We had not had any complaints all summer related to this project. Trinidad has had a number of construction projects going on all summer long as this is the best season for road crews to work without the rain. I offered to refund the stay so that you could move elsewhere because of these complaints but unfortunately did not have any homes available to move you to that also wouldn't be near construction and were of the same price range. Locals walk on Westhaven drive all the time to the beach and although their are 2 blind corners as long as you are aware things are fine. Otherwise it is less than a mile drive down to the beach where you can walk safely for miles. I am sorry that this wasn't a positive stay for you and hope you will visit us again and choose a different location. - Jonna

Not so good
Laura V. from Portland, OR does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014
While the beds were comfortable and there was somewhat of a nice view (minus the sound of the freeway)that was about it. While they call it 'budget' I have stayed in much nicer places that were way cheaper. I would not recommend this place!

Response from Trinidad Retreats
What a bummer that you didn't enjoy Moonstone Crossing. A clean, small, two bedroom/two bathroom, pet friendly home with ocean views for $150-175. Our guests usually really like this budget bungalow. Please check out the many other affordable homes we offer and let us help you choose another one. -Jonna

The home is a lovely place to stay. Pretty far from the beach which was why we went. Driveway a little scary to drive the car into. Our stay was pleasant

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Glad you enjoyed Moonstone Crossing but sorry to hear that 1 mile from the beach was too far. We have many other homes that are situated on or much closer to the beach. There is alternative parking up above for folks who do not prefer parking on the steep driveway. - Jonna

We loved our stay at Moonstone Crossing. The house was adorable and perfect for a peaceful getaway. It was close enough to walk to the beach, but still private and quiet. Being we live in the city with no yard, I absolutely loved having a fenced in space for our dog. It was great!

MOONSTONE CROSSING-LOCATION??
patricia e. from Stockton, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013
We were very disappointed to learn when we arrived that the house was in Westhaven, and not west of Hwy. 101, Since it is called "Moonstone Crossing" we assumed it was close to Moonstone Beach, and not that it was named after a winery! The house was nice enough though, and the feeling that you are in a treehouse was great. A very bad aspect though was the traffic noise from Hwy 101.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Our description of the home on our website reads as follows: "Great location just 5 miles south of Trinidad in the quiet town of Westhaven. It is less than a mile walk to Moonstone Beach. " We will add to that description that it is on the East side of Hwy. 101. You are the first guest to ever mention noise from the highway. The house is named with both the beach and the delicious locally made wine in mind. The owner leaves a complimentary bottle of "Moonstone Crossing" for each guest's stay. Please visit us again and we would be happy to help you select a home that better suits your desires. - Jonna

A Very Nice Respite
Helen S. from Hayfork, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013
This was a great little place that we enjoyed very much. It was wonderful that dogs were permitted and it was very clean. It was a bit further from the beach and other activities than I would have liked, but that was okay. There were also a lot of fees, but I guess that goes with the territory. All in all, we were very satisfied and I would return again in a heartbeat!

Remember to pick the fit you want and need It is up to you.
A guest from Redding, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012
I would only recommend this property to people that could climb stairs didn't need or want to be entertained. The house is nice,clean, and has a tiny view of the ocean. the property has a few quirks, none that young people or very active people couldn't handle. The property management couple are wonderful and kind and very helpful. I took my 85 year old Auntie and my friend with Lupus (who couldn't climb). We had all lost someone recently (husband, grandson) and wanted to sit and cry and watch some movies and the debate. We just wanted to tuck in. I didn't read the small print and It made a difference in our stay. My fault. I really screwed up. I didn't pick my fit. Hugs to the Managers and Thanks to the owners.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
We are working with the homeowner to update to a flatscreen T.V. and add cable so that our guests can relax and enjoy some entertainment. Your thoughts were well taken. In the meanwhile folks with laptops can view T.V. shows on their computer since this home does have Wi-Fi. We appreciate your business and would be happy to help you choose another one of our vacation homes that better suits your groups needs. Best Wishes - Jonna & Reid

Moonstone Crossing, Westhaven
Patricia J. from Trinidad, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012
The upstairs area was nice and the deck was very nice. However, the mildew odor from the garage reaches the upstairs and pretty much ruins what might otherwise be a good experience. A door at the top of the stairs would be a good idea both to contain the musty odor and for safety purposes. The rental needs some upgrading and odor control. I rented this home for my daughter and son-in-law without having seen it first. These comments on the cleanliness, safety issues, and odor are those of my daughter and son-in-law. Their feeling is that if upgrades were made, this could be a very comfortable and charming place to stay. If.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Thank you for your feedback. We will take a look at the musty smell as this has not ever been mentioned before. We will also pass along the suggestion for some upgrades to the homeowner. Glad you did enjoy the deck and the stay overall. -Jonna

Great Place to Stay in Trinidad
Dan S. from Bethesda, MD recommends this property.

We stayed at Moonstone Crossing for several days and actually extended our stay for a couple of days because we were enjoying it so much. The house has a great view of the ocean through the trees and has huge spruce trees right next to it making it feel like you are in a forest. Moonstone Beach is not far away and we cold get anything we needed in Trinidad. The property management was very helpful when we needed assistance, like adding days to our reservation, without being intrusive. We look forward to staying here again when we are in the area.

Moonstone Crossing Review
Olivia S. from Billings, MT recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011
Our first impressions of this property were not great. There was a fair amount of small particle trash in the very small yard. A pipe near the front door was covered by a tattered kitchen trash bag. Whoever used the dishes before us failed to clean them before putting them back in the cabinet. One wine glass had obviously held pulpy orange juice and didn't even look as if it had been rinsed. A cookie sheet was filthy, and a large pot had loose handles which made me burn my arm when I was draining it - another had a broken knob on top making it hard to touch safely. While clean, the house appeared tired and worn and could do with sprucing up. We appreciated having a washer/drier immensely, but were dismayed to see rat droppings in the garage where they were located. We generally enjoyed this property but felt that for the money we expected it to look better. The TV was small.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
We have taken care of the trash and garage. Our housekeepers will be alerted to the dishes and issues. I hope you will come back and stay with us next summer and give the home another chance.

You always wonder and keep your fingers crossed when you plan an extended stay. Moonstone Crossing was perfect for us. We were a party of three, my husband, my 80 year old mother and myself. The layout of the house was perfect for us. There is a bedroom and bathroom on each floor. It is minutes to the beach and town. For us the location was ideal. Thanks for a great stay!

Grows on you
A guest from Simi Valley, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011
Overall a good place particularly if you need a pet-friendly place. First impression wasn't great, as things seem a bit dated and could use some updating, and the potable water issue and notices aren't very comforting. But after a day or so it grows on you with the ocean views from the balcony and it really is a pretty good location. My biggest issue with this place is that at that price (in our case $717 for 3 nights), you would certainly expect a decent TV, cable, and the internet. If this place was $140 a night out the door, I'd say it was a good deal. At $240 a night(4 people and a dog) it needs cable TV, internet, and some updating. Even with that being said, I'd be tempted to stay there again but I might shop around a little more or leave the dog at home.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Trinidad Retreats
Sorry you missed the amenities page that does not list those things. But I understand what you are saying and I will look into getting some of those utilites. I agree the views are great for the price.

The entrance to the house was sort of scary with the road so close to the drive way. The drive way is very steep. The only potable water is in the upstairs kitchen. Other than that we found it charming. With home appeal.

We came for our daughters graduation from college. The rental allowed us to provide regular meals for family without having to find restaurants and make reservations or eat fast food. The town is small so that is a real plus during this weekend. Property is older but clean and nicely furnished. Driveway is steep but manageable. Great weekend. Thanks

Moonstone Crossing
A guest from Sebastopol, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011
The location of Moonstone Crossing is fabulous. It is close enough to walk to several beaches/points on the coast and is far enough from town to feel rural. It is a cozy setting. Two complaints: the upstairs bed mattress is lumpy. Because of water problems in the area, there is a filter on the kitchen faucet - it is a minor inconvenience not to have potable water in the bathroom. Other than that, it is well heated, the kitchen is well supplied with dishes, utensils, etc. Overall, a good stay!
