Overview

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Crafted of heart redwood, WHALESoNG HOUSE is a charming two-story home with three spacious bedrooms and two complete bathrooms, a fully-appointed gourmet chef’s kitchen with an adjacent dining area and living room with a brick-surrounded, woodstove fireplace, a comfortable media room, upper and lower decks overlooking the ocean and a new, private, Hot Spring spa which can accommodate six adults.

Watch the WHALESoNG HOUSE and GARDENS on YouTube

A designer’s delight, WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS are lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, verdant, rear garden of over 50 specimen rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, princess flowers, camellias and other perennials. A profusion of colors burst from hanging baskets of annuals around the exterior of the house throughout the season.

Designed by one of the owners, the serene, sculptured, three-foot spherical fountain, Global Peace, which punctuates the dozens of heathers, lavenders and ornamental grasses in the front garden has become a Trinidad landmark. Byrd Baker, the “old timer” from Mendocino, who, in his small skiff, once blocked a Japanese whaling ship, carved the driftwood whale insignia, which hangs at the apex of the face of the house.

Six adults can be accommodated comfortably in the three bedrooms, one on the upper level with a queen bed and a spare day-bed, one on the lower level with a double bed and another on the lower level with two single beds. All are dressed with luxurious down comforters and many comfortable pillows. There is a cozy bathtub in the bright, upper bathroom and a shower in the polished burl-countered lower bathroom. Complimentary bathrobes and linens are provided for each guest during your stay. The attached garage has been converted to a spacious storage and laundry room with a large-capacity clothes washer and dryer, as well as a full-size ironing board and steam iron for your convenience.

The furnishings were chosen by the owners for their elegance as well as comfort. Some are precious, sturdy, family heirlooms. There is a comfortable sofa and two upholstered Bergere chairs in the living room and a teak dining table in the adjacent dining area. A teak writing desk is nestled in the corner of the non-fiction book alcove next to the kitchen. The upper media loft has upholstered wingback chairs and a comfortable sofa. There are parquet floors, wall-to-wall carpeting and Oriental rugs throughout. Original art and photographs are tastefully displayed in the rooms and hallways. Massive, antique architectural pieces punctuate the apices of the interior and exterior walls.

The kitchen has a redundant supply of appliances and utensils including an automatic fresh-grinding coffeemaker which can be set to wake you with a rich aroma, a spacious, Panasonic microwave oven, a full-size 1954 GE refrigerator in perfect condition, a new Amana stove and oven, a new Maytag portable dishwasher, various Cuisinart and other brand mixers, blenders and crock pots, as well as grills and hot sandwich makers. Attractive cookware, service-ware and accessories are provided in quantity for your home-away-from-home comfort.

Should you require a gradual decompression from the distractions of modern life to the peaceful cooperation of man and nature which personifies WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS, there is a large, inventoried collection of Emmy-nominated videos as well as hundreds of inventoried fiction and non-fiction books and journals lining the many shelves in the living room and study. The cable TV media room features a large Sony TV and DVD/VCR player. There is a stereo CD/FM system in the living room and portable stereos in each bedroom. The upper bedroom has a separate cable TV/VCR player for your private viewing. In addition, there are many board games and puzzles for those quiet TV-free, intimate family evenings. The books, videos, CD's and games may be used at your pleasure. You are only asked to treat them gently and return them to thei

Guestbook comments from the manager

Graduation Weekend Fun! Our stay at Whale Somg was wonderful. Although we were on the run with graduation activities we thoroughly enjoyed the house, the incredible views, and Trinidad while we were there! Can't wait to return just to enjoy and explore!

Reviewer Comments:

First time to the Redwood Coast and considered ourselves fortunate to have decided to stay in Trinidad, what we now consider the best location in the area (easy access to beach trails, adequate restaurant and food options, and short drives to many outstanding additional attractions, beaches, etc). The Whalesong was perfect for our family of four with plenty of room for everyone to spread (in or out) but also spend cozy time together eating, playing games, and watching movies. This house built in the early 70's so don't expect perfection (although the house and gardens are clearly very well maintained), but do expect charm. House could easily accommodate more than 4, but single small shower might be a challenge for larger groups. Kitchen is well stocked and rest of house has just about everything you'll need for a comfortable stay.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay. However, I'd like to note the following: 1. There were rodent droppings in the house, and we heard what appeared to be rodent noise in a wall. 2. The instructions for entry are outdated, as there is no longer a need for a key to be obtained from the lock box (which didn't work), and there was no explanation of how to operate the locking mechanism on the front door. 3. The outdoor grill needs to be replaced. The heat deflectors over the gas outlets are badly rusted and breaking apart, and the legs of the grill were about to collapse. 4. The hot tub gave off an unpleasant, stale smell. 5. We were unable to operate the television and dvd player, and no instructions were available. 6. Also, we were unable to operate the CD player in the dining room. 7. The kitchen clock (above the entry into the kitchen from the dining room) is broken. 8. The refrigerator/freezer, although quaint and "old school", is not very convenient for storing food and drink.
