Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

Crafted of heart redwood, WHALESoNG HOUSE is a charming two-story home with three cozy bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully-stocked small kitchen with an adjacent dining area and a living room with a brick-surrounded woodstove fireplace.

Watch the WHALESoNG HOUSE and GARDENS on YouTube

A designer’s delight, WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS are lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, verdant, rear garden with multiple rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, princess flowers, camellias and other perennials.

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 people can be accommodated comfortably in the three bedrooms. All are dressed with luxurious down comforters and many comfortable pillows. There is a cozy bathtub in the bright, upper bathroom and a narrow 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.

The furnishings were chosen by the owners for their elegance as well as comfort. Some are precious, sturdy, family heirlooms. 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 coffeemaker, microwave oven, a full-size 1954 GE refrigerator in perfect condition, a Amana stove and oven, a Maytag portable dishwasher, various Cuisinart and other brand mixers, blenders and crock pots. Attractive cookware, service-ware and accessories are provided in quantity for your home-away-from-home comfort.

The cable TV media room features a large TV and DVD player. In addition, there are many board games and puzzles for those quiet TV-free, intimate family evenings. You are only asked to treat them gently and return them to their locations.

Please note – The main source of heat is the wood stove. Must know how to build fires and recommend cozy attire for chilly evenings.

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!

Love Trinidad and love this place. Five of us from all over the U.S. found this perfect place. One guest loved the hot tub. another loved the beautiful loft bedroom with a lovely view of the Pacific, and another loved the view from the kitchen to the shoreline. I loved all of this place. Accommodations were very clean and comfortable. We definitely will stay here again. Thank you for providing such a cozy and inviting home.

Reviewer Comments:

Even though the property manager told us this was an "older" property I was really impressed. The bed was so comfortable and you can literally see the ocean from the upstairs bedroom. Everything was within walking distance and very centrally located. The only thing missing was some kindling to start the hardwood stove which we picked up from the store. The retro fridge was a really neat item to have as well, reminded me of a time long ago. We had quite a few flies in the upstairs bedroom. Not sure where they were coming in from since all the windows were shut, but that was easy to handle. Overall this house is well equipped with all the necessity's you need, close to everywhere you might want to go, and has the best views! We will definitely book again if we are ever back in the area.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Whalesong house, and that you were impressed with the home. The reference to "older" was only in comparison to the other home being considered at the time. This home is really in a great location for enjoying Trinidad and for ease of getting around Trinidad by foot. We look forward to accommodating you again in the future, and thank you for your recent stay.
