Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

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

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:
Hot Tub jets not working in two of the three corners, garden very over grown with planters rotten and broken. Some planters completely bare. Garden needs a lot of attention. Wood fire stove very rusty. Needs attention. Picture frames above master bedroom very dusty. Cob webs in bathroom window as well as leaky hot faucet knob. Also refrigerator not working correctly, water inside dripping. House needs attention and proper maintenance!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Whalesong house. As we shift seasons, many of the plants in the garden and planters diminish to return in the Spring. We have had s few short, but strong winded storms pass through, which can be very damaging on the plants. While it may be a little unpleasant temporarily, but the plants do return and are quite flourishing come time for the garden tours. Spring through early Fall we do have a regularly scheduled gardener, and the remaining of the year the exterior is maintained twice a month by staff. If the garden wasn't how expected, I highly recommend a visit during times of the year plants are in bloom; it is quite pretty. Thank you for pointing out the remaining items you have listed, I have people scheduled to come out this next week for maintenance repairs. I would have loved to have heard from you during your stay, to possibly be given the opportunity to improve any of these during your visit. We love hearing from our guests and strive to make every experience during their stay, a pleasant one.

Great experience. The house is great and the location is spectacular. Our son had a fantastic time exploring in the gardens and walking the short walk to the beaches.

Thank you for the review of Whalesong. It is an enjoyable house, at really a great location close to so much of Trinidad by foot. Hope you will get a chance to stay with us again.

Reviewer Comments:
We enjoyed our stay at WHALESoNG very much! You just can't beat the location and views. We were able to walk to restaurants and beaches. Loved the little art gallery up the block too. It was the perfect home base for day hiking in the Redwood Forest.

The only negative was that the bathrooms were very small and there is only one shower. All of us had to duck down to rinse our hair...I guess the shower was made for folks under 5'6". While the gardens are quite lovely, they are far more overgrown than the pictures show. You cannot really walk through them and appreciate them up close.

Manager responded on 8/15/2014:
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Whalesong House while visiting Trinidad. What a cozy and convenient place it is, very accessible to much of Trinidad by foot. The home is quite older and unfortunately there is little we can do to make the bathrooms bigger, but I hear what you are saying. I hope you will come visit us again. Thank you for staying with us.

Wish we could have stayed longer. A nice house, sweet town and view. Couldn't figure out the bathroom lights, but all else good

Whalesong is a cozy home and Trinidad is an amazing little town, it is hard not to want to stay longer. You will have to just come visit us again!
