“Nice private little home. We had the one between the other two along the back, which didn’t have a fire pit, but was still very nice. Everything is well insulated and the thermostat is hooked up to a little wall fireplace, which is cute. Also cute are the rocking chairs on the porch. Nice place to sit with a cup of coffee in the chilly early morning. The location is great. Don’t miss checking out the tide pools nearby or driving up to see the redwoods! Also, the gentleman who was manning the grounds was extremely accommodating and very sweet.”

“The house was even better than the pictures!”

I can’t say enough about our time spent at Marke’s place. It is very peaceful, and on beautiful property.
It felt secluded because of the single-style cabins, and yet close to everything. The space itself was great.
It’s got an open layout with a lot of sunlight and high ceilings. The bed was so, so comfortable and large
enough for both me and my husband. We’re both on the tall side so that was a big plus for us! Because it has
an oven, fridge, dishwasher, and all the basic kitchen necessities, we were able to go food shopping at the
beginning of the week so we didn’t have to eat out for every meal (even though there are plenty of good restaurants
nearby- Eatery, Beachcomber, Larrupin, Moonstone…) The front porch overlooking a little pond with running water
was the perfect place to start the day (and meditate and do yoga!) It’s a short, 6-minute drive to town (gas/grocery/etc.),
close to a ton of hiking trails, and within walking distance to Patrick’s Point which is GORGEOUS. April, the manager was awesome-
welcoming and helpful and full of tips on where to go. We are seriously so grateful we picked this place and can’t wait to go back.

“This is hard to write because while I intend to do a glowing review, I’m afraid that if I do too many people will take it to heart, and it’ll be booked up when we want to return. And we will return. Patrick’s point state park is just down the road, and the coast line in that area is amazing. We barely scratched the surface of the several redwood forests nearby. There’s so much more to see, and Marke’s place here is the perfect spot. It’s quiet and private, but still close to town. The property is beautifully landscaped, but still feels like its in the woods. Marke lives on site, and the land is shared with three other cabins, but they’re both close enough to be available, yet far enough to be private. The full kitchen was super handy, the bed was very comfortable and the little fireplace was super nice. The only thing I can say is if you intend to cook a lot, bring any special utensils or spices that you’ll need: the kitchen is stocked with the basics but not everything. Not that this should be expected, just a heads up. Having used airbnb for years, and traveled much, Marke’s place was one of the best, and this part of the world is one of my favorites.”

Take a minute to talk to the host – he’s got some great stories and some good tips.”

“My husband and I brought our two cousins to stay at Marke’s lovely cabin in Trinidad, Calif. at the end of July, 2017.
The one-room cabin we rented was lovely, especially with the water feature out front. Our host provided two extra cots
for our family members, and even brought a card full of wood up when we wanted to set up a fire in the fire pit on our second night.
We also saw some coastal deer in the woods right next to the cabin, and banana slugs clustered around the pond in the mornings.
The cabin itself is small, but our group of four was perfectly comfortable. The layout helps – very open and bright, with lots of
windows to allow the breeze to circle through. It was pretty chilly the first night we arrived, but the heater worked well and warmed the room up in about 30 minutes.
There’s a charcoal grill outside, but no lighter or source of flame available on the premises. If you think you might like to grill during your stay, plan ahead.
The overall location is great for those seeking quiet and seclusion. It’s a short drive to Trinidad, or north to Redwoods State and National Park
(the entrance to Highway 101 is minutes away). Patrick’s Point State Park is almost across the street, and it’s a fantastic place to spend the day –
lots of hikes and beaches to explore.  We truly enjoyed our experience at Golden Eagle Vacation Rentals, and we definitely plan to go back as soon as we can!”

 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.”

What a beautiful setting!”

“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!”

“Quiet comfort in a beautiful setting.”

“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.”

It’s a very relaxing spot with nice walks nearby, a great deck by the pond and some stunningly dramatic scenery. Marke was very welcoming and made our stay very pleasant.”

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.”

built a fire for us, answered all questions, was insightful and helpful. I will certainly return and recommend this location highly for anyone who wants to enjoy Northern
California Coast and the Redwoods, a private locations and a very comfortable bed!”

They are both available and responsive.
The setting and cabin were both beautiful

My only regret is that we only had two nights to
enjoy this lovely retreat in one of the most beautiful,
unspoiled areas of the State.

A lovely modern cabin in a great location.”

“The cabin location is excellent for access to Patrick’s point, Trinidad beaches and Redwood state parks,
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.”

Gorgeous, clean, spacious and accommodating. Loved the Satellite TV (for keeping up with the World Series!) the gas fireplace, the kitchen, the comfortable
clean bathroom and shower. Everything about our experience met or exceeded our expectations. Marke was incredibly helpful. We loved the free bottle of wine,

The property was very beautiful and the cottage was clean and very comfortable. The bed was AMAZING – literally the best sleep we ever had. We would definitely
recommend this space to friends and family and will be back. Trinidad is a great town and apparently you can hear barking sea lions down the cliff across from the property.

You guys made our stay seamless and completely enjoyable.”

“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
