Charming suite w/ocean & beach views, upscale furnishings, and shared BBQ!
Whale Rock Suite #1 is a large suite that is ready to make your dreams of a fun and exciting vacation come true! Take in the marvelous and unforgettable views of the Pacific and the beach from your expansive yard on one of the comfortable wooden chairs. There is a private, long stairway (for athletic individuals only - rope down very steep steps at the end) that leads to wild, rocky landing (tide dependent). There is a shared gas BBQ, which can be a great place to cook as there is just a well-equipped kitchenette inside (no stove or oven); this BBQ is shared with Suite 2.
What's nearby: This beautiful property is located on the exclusive Patrick's Point Drive area which is less than three miles north of the village of Trinidad and three miles south of Patrick's Point State Park. The latter is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts as you can hunt for agates, explore tidepools, and walk through a jungle of shrubs and trees. There are a few local restaurants nearby, but if you're looking for more dining options, downtown Trinidad is the place to visit. Trinidad's beaches are considered some of the most beautiful beaches in the world; Trinidad State Beach is two miles away, Old Home Beach is three miles away, and Baker Beach is less than four miles south.

It is quiet except for the sea lions "barking". That was a bonus. Patrick's Point is not far and neither are the Parks. Location was fantastic!

Wanted to rate this place 5 stars because it is AMAZING. Loved the view, so incredible and the space is just fine. Bed was not comfortable and there is a dangerous step in the bathroom that I fell off of and bruised myself pretty good. Owner said they'd apply skid proof caution tape. Also, had no trash pickup the 4 days we were there.
All in all, beautiful view, great hidden gem.

This place was beautiful, clean and comfortable with all the amenities needed. The noise level was VERY loud because of families staying in both adjoining and upstairs suites. Otherwise perfect.

Beautiful views, clean, comfortable, and relaxing stay. Enjoyed our coffee watching the sea. We will be back!

Clean & quiet. View is breathtaking. Sunny deck even in winter, after rain. Close to forests and beaches. Super peaceful and we found gluten-free restaurant nearby!!

The view is fantastic...very relaxing! The location was good...close to the town, beaches and redwood parks.

Whale Rock was a beautiful location to base ourselves at and tour north and south of Trinidad. Despite a small glitch in our arrival and a mixup with the house being ready, we were well taken care of by the manager Charlie who went out of his way to make things right. Reliable and great communication, highly recommend.

I can’t get enough of the ocean and this wonderful place was perfect! Quiet blissfulness and serenity!
We will be back as soon as possible
Overall good experience. Sound from upstairs residents is distracting.
The view was absolutely beautiful. Everything was very clean. The water pressure was a small dribble though so showering was difficult. We also could hear the people up stairs very easily every time someone moved or closed a door.
We cannot say enough good things about this rental. Our jaws dropped when we stepped on the property and looked at the stunning views. I could not even imagine how beautiful it would be and once we were there, we didn't want to leave! The room was very spacious, clean, cute, and perfect for a couple. The binder of information was invaluable and helped us decide which hikes to do and even find a nearby grocery store. There is spotty cell service which we found to be a welcome change of pace. 10/10 would stay again and would recommend to everyone who will listen!
We had a wonderful time here. Lovely panoramic view, nice and clean home, and great location not far from Prairie Creek Redwoods.
This is the second time that I have stayed in the one-bedroom/studio suite at Whale Rock. The setting and view are second to none, the binoculars in the room add to the fun of sitting on the lower observation deck or even up on the lawn. The apartment is clean and well laid out, very comfortable. The owners are clearly invested in making everyone's stay a good experience. Because the living quarters above and adjacent are also rental units, one's experience can vary greatly depending on who is there. If a larger group is renting the other units, especially if they have young children, expect to hear through the walls/ceiling, and to have some solitude/quiet compromised as all share the same backyard. This being said, most folks are thoughtful and it is certainly not a deal breaker.
It was comfortable enough - a few minor inconveniences, but the service was great.
I had a fantastic experience staying at this suite . The views are breathtaking and surreal, and go as far as the eye could see. The property is very beautiful and spacious, but still felt quite peaceful and private. The suite itself was very clean and elegant.
We knew what we rented but were pleasantly surprised. We walked upon the property at sunset and were awestruck from the moment we looked out. Our suite was perfect and the view was spectacular. The stairs I'd like to say to say were a once in a lifetime event but we traveled down them more than once and want to visit your amazing rental property again!
We had a restful three days in Trinidad exploring the area. The little condo was perfect for our stay. We had some problem with wifi, but called management and the problem was cleared up. View from the condo of the coast was magnificent!
Great place, great location. The view of the ocean is all you could ask for. Would stay again for sure.
Great views. Quaint suite. We will be back
Beautiful suite atop the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Great place to watch the sunset on a deck which is located on stairs going down to the beach. It was living in a novel or a movie. The hosts are very friendly. Would love to come here again and again as there is so much to explore and do on the redwood coast.
Overall this rental was great! The views were amazing! I would have appreciated a quieter stay. The first night, the people upstairs were rather loud which made us uncomfortable. We weren't sure if they were talking loudly or yelling and fighting with one another. The views were what made the rental. I could have looked at the ocean all day. We typically went to bed around 11pm. The lights were on outside lighting up the patio. We looked everywhere for a switch to turn them off but couldn't find one. This made our unit light as we were trying to sleep. It would have been better if the curtains actually blocked the light. I would only recommend this unit to single couples, as the bedroom does not have doors.
The unit is close to the redwoods and to town. It's the perfect location.
I haven't been to No Cal since the late is just how it was in the 70s.Whale Rock is a great place for a couple to get away and time travel and connect with many beautiful things.
Great location,clean and comfortable. People living or staying above not loud but the constant opening of the slider was very annoying when trying to sleep. It woke us up very early in the morning.
Overall,it's B. Great views, indeed. But there was no shampoo or conditioner; it took a day to get a wine bottle opener after requesting it by phone.
We were more than satisfied with not only our room, but our experience at Whale Rock. The pictures on the website were accurate, but don't come close to the actual beauty of the view from our suite. They were very helpful when I couldn't figure out how to put our code in the door also. :) We had everything that we needed to be able to get food at the grocery store and not have to rely on restaurants for every meal. Quite possibly my favorite thing was something we didn't expect. A nice pair of binoculars in the room for us to use during our stay. We used them and it really helped enhance our stay more than we could have thought. There were numerous small things like this that really helped make our stay incredible. I can't recommend this company, or this location highly enough!
Divine home with a stellar view. Peaceful. Relaxing. Owners take amazing care of this home. Spotless. Immaculate. The king-sized bed is so comfy! Heaven.
