The first U.S. built home designed by renowned West Vancouver architect, Brian Hemingway the owner's 20-year vision and plan for a spectacular coastal retreat. The style and craftsmanship of this home has been described as a piece of 'green' artwork combining the natural elements of wood, glass, and slate to harmonize with the surrounding redwoods and unparalleled coastal views from Trinidad Head to Arcata and Eureka from virtually every room.

The first U.S. built home designed by renowned West Vancouver architect, Brian Hemingway the owner's 20-year vision and plan for a spectacular coastal retreat. The style and craftsmanship of this home has been described as a piece of 'green' artwork combining the natural elements of wood, glass, and slate to harmonize with the surrounding redwoods and unparalleled coastal views from Trinidad Head to Arcata and Eureka from virtually every room. Expansive outdoor decks and bedroom terraces allow enjoyment of ocean breezes while the interior architectural details will enthrall guests and transcend every climatic condition outside. New hot tub for a further relaxing experience. Arrival times are restricted to 6 pm because a representative from our company will meet you at the property upon your arrival. The home is equipped with a full laundry room with brand new Maytag Neptune washer and dryer, wireless internet access, high definition audiovisual systems including two large screen LCD TVs, state of the art Electrolux kitchen appliances, radiant floor heating, two gas fireplaces, and an outdoor gas barbecue. Sanctuary is a Tesla-ready home, equipped with its very own Tesla Wall Connector (high speed charging equipment for Tesla electric vehicles). Three bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other two with queen beds contain their own bathrooms and a fourth small 'bunk room' is ideal for kids with two single beds. The main master suite has a wall of glass to take in the most amazing ocean view. The bathroom features double sinks, a towel warmer rack, a walk in shower with three shower heads, and an ocean view sitting area. Large custom-made door panels in the living areas and bedrooms open indoor spaces to the outside. Huge concrete patio deck area with perimeter seating. Out of respect and kindness to the neighbors, we are unable to allow large gatherings at any of our homes. We understand that Trinidad is a popular destination location, however, please do not book this house for ANY event or wedding celebration purpose. Even while observing the vehicle limit, we’ve still had problems with guests chauffeuring wedding party members back and forth to the beach from this home, which causes too much noise and extra traffic on the very small, unpaved road. This home is to be used strictly as a single family residence normally would be. NO exceptions to the agreement will be permitted. Maximum car limit, including any visitors, is 4. Sanctuary is located one mile south of Trinidad on the Scenic Drive bluff 10 minutes from the Arcata/Eureka Airport, providing commercial and private jet service from LA, Redding & Portland. It is a ten minute hike to secluded and pristine Baker Beach and a short drive to many other fabulous flat and rocky beaches in the area. Within a 10 minute drive north, you have access to multiple natural attractions such as Trinidad Head Trail, Patrick's Point State Park, Agate Beach, Redwood National Park including Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Prairie Creek State Park, Fern Canyon and herds of Roosevelt elk. To the south, explore Humboldt State University and Arcata, Old Town, Eureka, the Eureka Waterfront, and the Victorian Village of Ferndale. Trinidad harbor supplies charter boats for ocean fishing, sightseeing, and whale watching excursions depending upon season while the Trinity, Klamath, Eel and Mad Rivers offer world class trout, steelhead and salmon fishing as well as river rafting and kayaking. Excellent restaurants abound in Trinidad, Arcata, and Eureka. Additional amenities: 2nd TV in Bedroom, ATM/bank, Adventure, Arts and Farmers Market, Away From It All, Beach, Beachcomber Cafe, CD Player, Carbon monoxide detector, Casino, Catch Cafe, Climbing Stairs Required, Close to Humboldt State Univ., Close to Town, Coffee Maker, Coffee Shop, Complimentary Coffee & Cookies, Cookware, Dishes & Utensils, Eatery Restaurant, Essential Elements Spa, Family, Fire Pit, Fire extinguisher, First aid kit, Fountains, Full Kitchen, Games, Gas Station, Gift Shops, Golf Course, Heating, Humboldt State University, Ice Maker, Iron & Board, LED Flat Screen TV, Larrupin's Restaurant, Lawn / Garden, Lighthouse Cafe, Living Room, Marine Lab & Aquarium, Minimum Age Limit for Renters, Moonstone Grill, Movie Theater 10 mins away, Movie Theatres, Near Beach, Near By Resturants, Near Marine Lab, Nearby ATM, Nearby Grocery, Nearby Internet Cafe, Nearby Market, Nearby Medical Services, Nearby Post Office, No Air conditiner, Outdoor Fireplace Area, Outdoor lighting, Pantry Items, Parks, Museum and Library, Patrick's Point State Park, Post Office, Private Yard, Redwood National Park, Seascape Restaurant, Secluded, Smoke detectors, Tennis Court in Trinidad, Tesla Electric Vehicle Charger, Trinidad Day Massage, Trinidad State Beach, Trinidad StateMore
