This place has beautiful views. It was clean and good size. I loved having a “home base” for family meals and rest, especially having my 90 year old grandmother with us.
That being said, the accessibility was not good for a 90 year old. You have to walk down steps and around the back of the building to get to the unit. Carrying all the bags and the food that far was the struggle for some of the people in our party. There is a an easier grassy slope on the other side of the building that you’re not supposed to use. We ended up having to take my grandmother up that slope to the car several times because the steps were too much for her. She was also very cold the whole time. There is no thermostat in the unit. There is a fireplace and some space heaters but starting a fire every time wasn’t feasible and one of the space heaters did not seem to be working.
Due to the accessibility issue we would not stay there again. Unless it was with a younger group.

The view was amazing, I woke around 5:30 just in time to watch a full moon over the ocean. Magical and a delightful place!!!

I brought my little family here for my birthday weekend. Our stay was amazing. The pictures on the site do not do it justice. The home was very comfortable equipped with everything we needed and very clean! Beautiful beaches close by and yummy restaurants all within a short 10 min drive.

Our favorite place to stay on the north coast!

We really enjoyed our stay at Whale Rock and would recommended it. The home was clean and provided all the necessities for our long weekend stay. Wifi worked well and there was plenty of fire wood to keep our fire going. Close to state parks, beaches, and the small but fantastic town of Trinidad.

Since the home is in a try-plex with shared walls, we went in with the expectation that we will hear and encounter others. While we did hear and see others, everyone kept to themselves and there was still the feeling of privacy. The suite was spacious and comfortable, and very clean. The kitchen layout was not ideal, but that did not deter from enjoying the home. We ate in one night and on the second night we got Larrupin take out. Great restaurant about a half a mile or so down the road. The location of the home was easy to access from highway 101 or from Trinidad. The view was wonderful. We met the owner on the property who was kind and courteous. Would recommend the place to friends or family visiting the area.

Overall, a great condo! Gorgeous view and great location. As previously mentioned by others, the kitchen is quite small, but has all the necessary items. We will be staying at this property again when we return next year.

Beautiful spot. Nice accommodations but the amenities were a little disappointing. No dishwasher, not pot holders, very little to cook and back with, and ANTS. Also, you can hear the tenants above walking around but luckily it didn’t happen during bed time

Everything was wonderful, from the scenery to the accommodations to access to incredible hiking trails. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful views! Beautiful and welcoming home! We really enjoyed the place and wish we could have stayed longer! My only ‘not perfect’ experience was a situation with tiny ants. My brother who lives local brought donuts over as a welcome to town our first evening, and the next morning there were tiny ants on the counter and our donuts. We cleaned them up and never saw another bug during our stay. Coming from Florida we are used to all sorts of bugs so this wasn’t a big deal. The only other small detail that I wish I would have had was a broom. I felt guilty when my kids tracked any dirt into the house, I looked and could not find one. If and when we make it back out to Trinidad we hope this place is available because we would definitely stay again!
We spent 3 glorious days here and it was amazing. I took my daughter, daughter in law and 5 grand kids for some fun beach time. The unit is so nicely done, immaculately clean and comfortable. The nice lawn in front was perfect for relaxing, for the kids playing and for all of us enjoying the wonderful view. We BBQ'd every night and had dinner while we watched the sunset. The property was so private and quiet, no road noise at all. Everything exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to go back!!!
Amazing views, lovely, clean home with lots of room. We would love to stay again! A+
Amazing view the minute you are on property. Great living arrangements for our family of 6.
Wonderful views and home. Exceeded our expectations. Great hike to beach. Great location. Would love an excuse to stay again. Nicely decorated and maintained.
Beautiful location, inside and out. Couldnt be happier with our stay and will definately return.
My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful views, relaxing, peaceful location. The observation deck is breathtaking. Our hosts greeted us like long lost friends. Anything we needed they helped with! Their recommendation for meals, visit, and explore where all amazing. We have been over to this area many times and DID NOT know about a few gems!
We will be back and bring the family!!
Overall, we had a nice experience at the property. We loved the view and proximity to Larrupin (great food!) and Trinidad. Wifi was good and having lots of indoor and outdoor space was great - particularly since we enjoyed some unseasonably nice sunny days on our visit. The kitchen is rather limited in size but we had what we needed for coffee, breakfast and grilling (on the patio) one of the nights we were there. The interior space was expansive but it would have been nice to have a larger bathroom given the overall size of the unit. Highly recommend checking out Patrick's Point State Park, Trinidad State Beach, Moonstone Beach. For food, we enjoyed Larrupin and Moonstone Grill for dinner, Seascape for breakfast/brunch and Beachcomber Café for coffee/breakfast and baked goods.
We stayed here for a second time this year. The view is the reason we come but the large unit and comfortable furniture keep us coming back. Pros View comfortable furniture, beds and living room large unit with lots of outdoor space Cons Too many spiders, spider webs Unit above is very noisy and not considerate of people below. Noisy late at night and early mornings No games or books Limited pots and pans. Pub height table only seats 4
The view from the apartment is truly amazing. Exactly as what you see in the pictures. The apartment is spacious and kitchen includes essentials (salt, pepper, olive oil, soap, etc.) Unfortunately the walls are very thin and you can hear a lot from the upstairs and next door neighbors. Some of tge furniture & walls are in not so great condition & one wall plug was not covered, which was concerning for us with a toddler.
Bed was comfortable and hearing the ocean was very peaceful.
Located high on the cliffs above a beautiful view of the ocean. Steep steps to get there from the parking area. Will definitely go back again.
Absolutely stunning location, quite large suite, everything you needed but very thin walls.
It was perfect place to escape and recover. Even with the full house I felt it was pretty private. Our kitchen had a lot of missing pieces but the owner came over and helped up restock fast. She was kind and helpful. The only downside was they didn't have a washer and dryer but they had a laundry mat close by. I would recommend to anyone. Note for owner: the binder was a little out of date. The massage prices have changed.
Pros Amazing view. Comfortable beds and furniture. Spacious living space. Great location.
Cons- small shower and no bathtub. Not enough cooking supplies!! No pots or baking dish.
