WHALESONG: OCEAN VIEWS OVERLOOKING TRINIDAD BAY & PACIFIC, BEAUTIFUL GARDENS

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

Just renovated! Beautiful open Kitchen, Living and Dining Room with Ocean and Garden Views! Working artist/writer’s retreat designed for peaceful contemplation and creative inspiration, WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS is located only a block from the Lighthouse

Just renovated! 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

Very nice, well located home However, interior was rather dark and one of the three bedrooms was small with twin beds. Overall a lot of fun. Very pleased with property management company.

Reviewer Comments:
I felt as at-home in the Trinidad vacation house as in my own home. It was so well equipped and comfortable. What truly impressed me, was when I had thought I had left a pair of sandals behind, staff did all they could to look for them and get back to me. It turned out they were stuck in a place I hadn't looked. Thank you so much.


Manager responded on 1/27/2014:
Thank you for the review of Whalesong House. This is definitely one of those homes that you automatically feel comfortable in, as if it were your own. If you ever get a chance, you should definitely come when the garden is in full bloom. It is quite amazing! I hope you come stay with us again, here at Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals. If this home is ever booked, we have over 50 other vacation rentals that I can share with you, that will make you feel quite at home as well. Hope to see you again, thank you.

Reviewer Comments:
We loved this location! Beautiful sunsets and convenient walk to the grocery store. Spent the days exploring the beach, Redwood National Forest, and Patrick's Point tide pools. So quiet it took some getting used to (we live in the city :-) Easily fit 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 9,11,13).

Reviewer Comments:
It was good working with the management company.
The house is sweet and very well-equipped.
However, the bedroom carpets need heavier cleaning or replacement, especially upstairs, the kitchen sink leaked, and the upstairs toilet ran constantly. I think the oven thermostat may be off. We had to cook food much longer than at home. If I recommend this place or return, I would assume that these things would have been remedied. It was lovely to arrive to wine and flowers...thank you.

Manager responded on 8/21/2013:
Glad you enjoyed the house. Yes, we just replaced both toilets - they were special order because of the plumbing used and the first ones that were arrived were wrong size. All good now. Kitchen sink leak has been fixed as well. We do get the carpets professionally cleaned on a regular basis but some stains cannot be removed. We will look at options on that. Yes, older oven but will have that thermostat checked on. This is the first time it has been mentioned. Hope to have you back to the Whalesong House by Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals - one of our 50 vacation homes on the Redwood Coast.

Reviewer Comments:
We loved this home. The A frame design and knotty pine walls make it a unique and special space. Loved the flowers which hung from baskets in all areas of the gardens. The location can't be beat. Loved being able to walk to the many beaches and to the pier. Our only complaint are there were not enough cleaning supplies and the running toilets. There were no sponges or rags for dishes nor was there laundry soap. There were paper towels but no windex or cleaner to wipe down counters or glass coffee table, which did need it after a three day stay. Also, the toilets ran constantly. They could be fiddled with to make them stop, This was ongoing. In saying that, we loved this house and hope to stay here again soon. A perfect beach get away.

Manager responded on 7/18/2013:
We are really glad you loved the home and it's location! Yes, walking to the beaches and things that the town has is great! We just had a company come in and "fix" the toilets so we will have that repaired properly. In regards to your comments about cleaning supplies, we had rags there for you in the drawer by the sink but you must have missed them and we also have wash clothes with mesh scrubbers instead of sponges that we're trying out that were in that same drawer. We don't supply laundry soap but they sell small boxes of it at the store. Thank you for your feedback as it is helpful in making every stay the best experience possible for our guests with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals. Once again, glad that the house was nice for you and that you enjoyed Trinidad!
