Charming home w/ a furnished balcony, ocean views, & a private hot tub!

Crafted of heart redwood, Whalesong House is a charming two-story home with a well-equipped, full kitchen, an adjacent dining area, and a living room with a wood stove. A designer’s delight, this rental is lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, rear garden brimming with rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, camellias, and other perennials. Designed by one of the owners, the 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. And 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. Guests of this rental will also enjoy the view from the furnished balcony, the gas grill, and the private hot tub, perfect for soothing both body and soul.

What's nearby:
This rental is located right in the heart of town making it easy to walk to restaurants, shops, galleries, and museums. For the adventurous, this home is about a mile from College Cove Beach and College Cove Falls, a little over two miles from Luffenholtz and Moonstone Beach, and about six miles from Patricks Point State Park. And if you want to hike the scenic trails of Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, this home is about 28 miles south.

This house was rustic and good for people who appreciate a little history and rustic feeling. The management was always very helpful and there was a book for all the things you can do in the area. This was in walking distance to restaurants and the beach. We really had a great time.

We have traveled to the area many times, but this was the first staying here. It was wonderful, relaxing, and cozy. Loved the views, hot tub, and fireplace. Perfect for that classic coastal weather! We will be back.

This was such a relaxed and comfortable place to spend a few days on the North Coast. The lovely garden in the front is a great spot to have some coffee or wine and enjoy the ocean sights and sounds. Ocean views from the kitchen and dining room, and from the upstairs deck off of the master bedroom. Nice hot tub for relaxing in the cool ocean air. Beds are super comfortable and kitchen is well-appointed (could use a full-size cutting board and a decent chefs knife). Table extends to easily fit eight people for a nice family dinner. Newly updated bathrooms. So nice to wake up and just walk down to the beach or harbor with your coffee each morning. Or walk to the market, coffee house, eatery or cute little shops.

We LOVED this house! Sleeping to the sounds of the ocean, watching the fog roll in, walking everywhere in Trinidad... This place was the perfect way for a few teachers to start their summer!

A great place to stay in Trinidad! We have stayed here a number of times and the bathrooms were always a little funky( dark and cramped is understated) but what a pleasant surprise! They are brand new, clean bright white! A large main shower- lots of light, plenty of towels! Upstairs too remodeled tub and shower combo! The rest of the house has an A-frame rustic charm, loads of dishes, utensils etc. Carpeting on stairs should be cleaned or replaced. There is an extensive library in the house which is fantastic!! The best part is the proximity to the ocean, walk to Trinidad Head, grocery store and our favorite cafe The Beachcomber! Delicious- We had a great time!!

charming A-frame in the center of Trinidad.
Warm and inviting, has a great view from the upper deck.

Overall, our experience was perfect. The house has an outstanding location and is very comfortable. Bathrooms are a bit old, but workable. There was a problem with the water heater and the management company got someone out to fix it in a timely manner. Can't say enough about Trinidad as a beautiful vacation spot and the house was perfect for grandchildren and their parents alike!

The home itself is located in a nice spot, within walking distance of shops and the marina, and with a beautiful view. The home itself is fun and unique, with a serene backyard and hot tub, and a loft for reading and relaxing. We easily hosted a dinner party, the kitchen is well stocked and there is plenty of room to sit and enjoy the wood stove. A few updates would benefit guests, most notably the downstairs shower (there is a tub upstairs) which is very small. Certainly those few inconveniences are far outweighed by all of the wonderful attributes of this property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

What a great place for touching base with family....we all felt right at home. The kitchen was well equipped. The bedrooms were on separate floors which provided privacy. The living room downstairs has no tv which created a nice environment for catching up with relatives...while the tv was in the loft area to be used when needed....
The water heater stopped working on the second day, but the management company sent someone over promptly to reset it....
Two small things that could be added would be:
A salt shaker (really absolutely none in the kitchen) and a sink stopper for the downstairs bathroom sink....

So cozy and clean, it had everything we could have needed. The ocean view in the morning is sublime ��

Great location and view
. Jul 2018
We were very happy with the property. It was clean and very close to the beach and the harbor. You are in walking distance of several restaurants and Murphy's grocery store for all your needs. If you like to hike, there are several easy trails to walk to see the ocean views and the seals that are resting on the rock islands. The only thing that I could complain about is the house does creak and sometimes a little noisy when you walk upstairs but it is an older house and is to be expected.
