 We were truly impressed!”

“Wow! This has been our best Airbnb experience yet. This place was easy to find, had close access to the 101, and was a short drive to everything Redwoods National Park had to offer.
The grounds were gorgeous, well maintained, and peaceful. The unit we stayed in was like new and immaculate. Quality constructed units. The bed was temperpedic like and was
extremely comfortable. Unit had direct tv, wifi, a gas fireplace, unlimited hot water, and felt very private. There was a coffee maker, sugar, and fresh coffee grounds.
The hospitality was beyond expectations. Marke surprised us with a bottle of wine our first night and the second night we arrived back after a long day of hiking to a charcuterie plate.
We are so impressed , have already told our friends about this place, and will definitely stay here again in the future.”

“The cottages are lovely and well appointed. We stayed in the front cottage and couldn’t have been more pleased.
The cottages are well constructed and one can tell the high level of attention to detail Marke has put into the cottages.
The pond and water feature was so relaxing while eating our breakfast on the front porch. Should we return to the area, we will most certainly stay again.”

Yvonne T.,  Kailua-Kona, HI

“Listening to the running water was very relaxing.”

“Excellent location and wonderful host! This was our first time in California and Marke couldn’t of made us feel more welcome!
He greeted us with a bottle of wine, offered to build a camp fire, and helped make suggestions for things to see and places to eat.
The cottage was just as picture perfect as the photos, so very peaceful. ( Also the most comfortable bed and pillows we had on our whole trip!)
We fell in love with everything on the property: listening to the relaxing running water, the fireplace inside the cabin made the place cozy, and the star filled sky.
Of all the places we stayed on our drive up the Pacific coast highway this was by far our favorite. Looking forward to planning another trip tot northern California so we can
stay in these cottages again!”

“My boyfriend and I really enjoyed Markes cabin. Surrounded by forest, it was definitely one of the most peaceful and relaxing getaways we have ever taken.
Marke was very friendly and accommodating. He gave us a nice bottle of wine when we checked in, which we enjoyed on the front porch.
We slept very well during our stay, didn’t hear a single noise. The location of the cabin was great, we were very close to Patrick’s Point state park which was absolutely breathtaking.
The town of Trinidad was very cute. It reminded us of our favorite Oregon coast beach town. We did dine out a few times, but also enjoyed cooking in the cabin. The cabin had everything
we needed to prepare a few meals. Can’t wait to come back.”

Tristan J.,  London, United Kingdom

We look forward to seeing you again some day.”

“Ive been working in high-end customer service for a long time, and I currently work at a Forbes 5-star property. Marke has a quality that cannot be trained: he genuinely cares
about his guests and their experiences. He went out of his way to make us comfortable and our visit memorable, all while giving us the space and privacy to spend our time as we saw fit.
Also, the property is immaculately clean, clean, CLEAN. Here are a few examples of Marke’s kindness: • After hearing that I wanted to treat my wife to a special, relaxing trip after
she graduated from grad school, Marke upgraded us to a Master suite with a whirlpool spa and dry sauna. • When he found out how much I enjoy wine he offered his 4 best bottles as a
complementary gift, one for each night. • On our last night he bought all the fixings to make us dinner (pesto crusted wild salmon,) and when we arrived too late to enjoy it he didn’t
make us feel bad for wasting his time. What a thoughtful and classy guy. About the place: This is the perfect location to enjoy the Redwood National/State park system. It’s walking
distance to Patrick’s Point state park, and a very close drive to Redwood National and Prairie Creek Redwoods State parks. The highlights of our trip were definitely the James Irvine
trail including the Fern Canyon loop in Prairie Creek, and berry hunting/coastal hiking in Patrick’s point. If you want to glam it up then this rental is perfect! Every night,
after a tiresome day of hiking and adventuring, I got to unwind in a clean and spacious cedar sauna while enjoying a bottle of wine. My wife, meanwhile, soaked in a whirlpool spa with
jets massaging her feet. Every morning we prepared our meals in a gourmet kitchen with a full size refrigerator and two ovens. The bed was more comfortable then the one I have at home
(and I own a really nice bed,) and the views and sounds from the home were serene and relaxing. Everything about this place worked perfectly. The wifi connected with no problems.
The Sauna and Spa were both easy to use and worked well. And every time I needed something I found it conveniently near, such as Epsom salt under the bathroom sink for a soak,
Tupperware for our packed lunches, paper towels to wipe the counters, even a full pepper mill to make our sandwiches and salads taste better. I can see this place working well
as the tail end of a camping trip, adding a little luxury after roughing it. I am glad, however, that I chose to stay here for all 4 days. What was meant to be only a place to
sleep became one of the most enjoyable parts of our trip. Take it from a hospitality professional with very critical taste and high standards, this is the best place to stay in
the coastal redwood area.”

we found the cabin to look exactly as depicted, being clean and modern and we found it to be very comfortable. The small lake on site and and surrounding forest made us feel that nature was on our doorstep. The cost is fairly reasonable given the location/area when comparing options for our stay, and once arrived Dennee,
Marke and family couldn’t do more to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thanks to the Matthews family.”

“My fiance, Lizzie, and I stayed in Cabin 1 for three nights in August. The cabins are easy to find and ideally located near Highway 101,
but secluded within the woods just off the coast of the Pacific. We were warmly greeted by Mark’s brother, Danny, who went the extra mile by
carting our luggage to the cabin, providing a complimentary bottle of wine, and sharing some of the nuance tips for making the stay perfect.
We met Mark after the first day of hiking, who facilitated (with Danny) getting a campfire started for us. I can’t say enough positive things about Mark and Danny and the
perfectly located cabins. We will definitely be back.”

There’s also a grill and fire pit for use by the guests which Marke was kind enough to supply the firewood and coal for and even join us for some storytelling. If you want to cook,
there’s an excellent market 10 minutes away with fresh seafood, meat and wine and all the dishes you’ll need to cook them. Book for a great price and a wonderfully calm retreat in the
