Overview

Trinidad House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 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!

The location was great! However we shared our time with a rat. We saw the critter once after he helped himself to our dry food we had in a back pack.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the stay at the Whalesong House. So sorry to hear you shared the house with a rat. I wish you would have called right away, but we are still able to address now and do what we can to catch the fellow. Thank you for alerting us. I do hope your stay was otherwise well and that you enjoyed Trinidad.

Reviewer Comments:

Whalesong House is in the perfect location. We walked everywhere and were a short drive from everything we wanted to see! I expected qwerk and it is, although this particular qwerk desperately needs to be refreshed. New/clean throw rugs and sofa pillows would go a long way. The kitchen is adequate but suffers from dull knives and overused cooking utensils. It is not a gourmet kitchen as described, but from the photo I was not expecting one. The floor in the downstairs bathroom needs repair. My girls really enjoyed the hot tub. The water feature in the front garden had a steady line up of birds and was amazing to watch. Dori, our property Mgr. was wonderful! She quickly addressed any concern and gave great recommendations for sights to see. We loved our time in Trinidad but will probably choose a different rental option next trip. If you come, bring a sense of humor and your own coffee cups.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at the Whalesong House and Garden. Your feedback is valuable and I will definitely make some improvements. The homeowners of the house are quite sentimental, so they have a certain look they like, but we do have multiple home improvements scheduled out for the fall. Thank you for your stay and I hope your time spent in Trinidad was wonderful.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location but needs some refurbishing, mostly a good thorough cleaning and some attention to the older sliding doors and windows. Plenty of books and a good selection of pots and pans. The upstairs had a strange odor, perhaps cleaning or replacing the carpet would work. The Catholic Church across the street was quite old and lovely to look at and just a short stroll to the end of the block gave you a view of the bay that was worth a million...

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the Whalesong House. While it is an older home, with an older style to it, we are constantly working to upgrade what we can. Thank you for your feedback on the sliding door; that has been a topic of discussion for a little while now, and sorry to hear the clean wasn't up to par. Please, when you stay with us, if there is a problem or the clean could have been improved, give us a call and we sill send someone right away to make things right. Otherwise, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the location. We have many other homes in the area; I hope you will return to stay with us again in this home or one in a completely different environment.

Reviewer Comments:

We lour stay at Whalesong! We had 4 adults, and 2 children and the house was a great fit for our needs. We were able to go different short hikes right from our front door, walk to the restaurants, and grocery store. We were right at the ocean and the children enjoyed climbing all the rocks and even seeing seals basking themselves in the sun! Another great plus for us were the great selection of books at Whalesong. We read book after book to our kids and we still probably did not even make it through half the collection. What fun! The house was perfect for 2 families, with enough privacy for each, but a wonderful living area where all could mingle togehter and the upstairs loft was great to take a break in if you needed a little reprieve. The house was clean, beautiful and very welcoming. Beautiful view also. Easy drive to the Redwood forest. I would certainly be a return customer, if our travels take us that way again. Thank you, for making a wonderful vacation possible!!

The Whalesong home was perfect for a long overdue reunion with my brother and sister-in-law. We were right at home right away. We loved everything from the accommodations to the location. Only wished we could have stayed longer.
