Amazing proprietors. Amazing views from Cabin 3. Clean cabins. Decent kitchen tools. New beds new carpet. Great piece point. Would give 4.5 but we had a bit of an ant problem when we got back to cabin despite everything being super clean. Will be back

We stayed here for 3 nights mainly to visit the Parks! The cabins are very nice and clean. They are quite adequate, but could use a little updating. The cabin we stayed in was next to the road that adjoined the RV park, so we got some noise from the neighbors, but not bothersome when you went inside. We also... More

Nice hotel, very spacious room and spotless although a little plain (no pictures). The owners are helpful and pleasant. Only gripe was the bed wasn't very comfortable and the mattress cover had plastic sheeting underneath which made you perspire.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and are always looking for ways to improve. We do have new wall art going up in the rooms to add some character and color. As far as the mattress, nearly all of our mattresses are less than one-year old. We do our best to pick mattresses that are a moderate... More

We stayed for 3 nights at cabin 1B. This room had a beautiful terrace with a view to the sea. Stunning. The room was perfect, TV worked perfectly (I was able to watch the 2016 NHL entry draft, and hubby watched Copa America, also wifi worked great.

My family has visited and stayed in Trinidad many times in the last decade. This time instead of ocean view home in town, we rented at Crest View, a little over 4 miles from town. Check in at the house that serves as office and home for the owners Jennifer and Brady. Both very gracious hosts. We stayed in cabin... More

We came here as a family. This was a great place for a family to stay. The owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We had the 2 bedroom, which provided enough room for us.

We were staying just one night and received a very warm welcome. The cottage was clean and spacious. You can hear the sea lions bark. The restaurant three miles in direction Trinidad which the owner couple recommended provided us with an excellent dining experience. Thank you for a relaxing stay.

We found this place through tripadvisor. We're very happy we stayed here. The people who run this place are very friendly. The lodge itself was just great. Enough space: a little sort of livingroom/kitchenette and a nice space with an incredibly soft bed. From our balcony we could hear the sea lions. We recommend this place if you're staying in...

We stayed two nights at view crest and would have loved a third or fourth or fifth! Our cabin was the small family cabin which gave us three beds, a living room and kitchen. Very comfortable for making a little breakfast and an evening glass of wine. The beds were comfortable and the couch was too!

This lodge was cozy and pristine with friendly and wonderful service. Right near the coastline, you feel completely relaxed as your surrounded by the forest and can hear the sound of sea lions in the distance. Housekeeping came every day to ensure everything was kept tidy. The room we stayed in was equipped with a kitchenette (sink/mini fridge/microwave/silverware and dishes/coffee... More
