Chic and large home with private hot tub, ocean & beach views & beach access

Beachgoers and outdoor enthusiasts will be thrilled by Whalerock Luxury Home! This lovely home offers guests privacy, expansive ocean and beach views, a large deck with outdoor seating, and all the amenities you could need to spend a carefree vacation. Inside, this vacation rental features an airy living area with comfortable furnishings, a large fireplace, a formal dining room, and a telescope for nighttime stargazing and daytime wildlife viewing, including whales, seals, migrating seabirds, and more. The kitchen is well-equipped and offers stainless steel appliances, modern utensils, marvelous granite countertops, and a convenient island. The large, brand new, six-person hot tub is the start of this house - it's sunken into the deck, which means you can relax and soothe your muscles while admiring the views. Also, you'll have access to a private, long stairway down to wild, rocky landing (tide dependent). The trail is challenging and strenuous. This residence is the top floor of the home. Downstairs, with separate parking and entryways, are Suite 1 and Suite 2. Both are high-end units of a luxurious two-story home and the other two units may be occupied, so please walk gently.

What's nearby:
This rental is less than three miles away from the charming town of Trinidad and its world-famous beaches - Trinidad State Beach is two miles away, Old Home Beach is three miles away, and Baker Beach is less than four miles south. The nearby Patrick's Point State Park offers a plethora of outdoor activities such as hunting for agates, exploring tidepools, and walking through a jungle of shrubs and trees. Trinidad's two heads, Elk and Trinidad, overlook picturesque coves and rugged off-shore rocks.

Things to know:
This is a split-level home. A smaller studio and a three-bedroom suite occupy the bottom level of this home and are rented separately.
While this home is not dog-friendly, the owners of the house have two small non-shedding dogs that live at the property when the unit is unoccupied by guests.

This house had beautiful views of the ocean and coast line. We could see the seals from the house. Plenty of space and we'll equipped. There is no washer and dryer so plan accordingly. Also be prepared for guests staying below in the lower units.

Whalerock is a beautifully appointed, elegant and yet comfortable place to stay. Very spacious, comfortable beds and furnishings, and views beyond comprehension. We had the opportunity to meet the owner who is charming and kind and made me feel like I met a new friend. The house is situated in a beautiful area with amazing hiking trails and a lot to explore. We were sad to leave😊

We rented the house for 3 days. Perfect view and location. Minor problems with finding where to put the garbage and a disposal that didn't work but other wise, it was a choice rental that we'd love to come back to. We did know ahead of time that we'd be sharing the property with renters below so that wasn't a problem.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Cory. We apologize for any issue you had with the garbage disposal and locating where to put the garbage. The garbage disposal is being replaced. Information on where to put the garbage can be found in your check-in email as well as Trip Manager. We hope to host you again.

Wonderful location and cannot beat the view. We have stayed here many times and will continue to do so.

From the moment we drove onto the property we could see a well maintained HOME. As we walked up to the house from the courtyard, we could see through to the ocean through clean windows. What a way to be greeted! It was a stunning sight. Then to walk through the doors into every room that faces the ocean, stunning stunning stunning. We found our mouths open and finally found words. The place was clean looking and there were perks throughout the place. From the gorgeous REAL Orchids displayed in a few places, to the many towels rolled up for us in the kitchen and displayed in the bathrooms. The linens and bedding were all superb. The furniture was inviting with its homey warmth and still offering class and good taste. The binocular table was such a generous touch, and too a well stocked kitchen. Also, there is a table that has several copies of trail maps, and other reading material of the area to read and to plan with. This is a place I felt proud to open the door to the other guests. This place felt homey and warm despite it’s spaciousness. The master bedroom is to die for. This whole place is to die for. We didn’t want to leave and plan to get back. Also, Vacasa reps were GREAT in addressing any and all help we needed. So great for their hands on friendly kind and professional help.

The view from this property was priceless!
Jody W. Jul 2021
Loved the view from the house! The walkway down the cliff allowed us special views of the waves and sea lions. We will definitely come back.
Karen C. Jul 2021
This trip was extra meaningful for us. It is our 40th anniversary and in the past 6 months hubby has become completely disabled by an unknown disease and we needed to “get away from it all”. This was the exact right place to be. The home is large so easy to get wheelchair around, large windows so he could sit and watch and a sign above the bed that meant the world to us. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Our storm won’t be passing but this place was our dance in the rain. JUST PERFECT. Thank you

We loved our stay at this home. Breath taking view of ocean from every room of the home. Every friend of mine got the property detail from us to book for their future vacation.

I stay in high end vacation homes all over the world and I would place this one among the very best. Can't wait to come back

This place was a lot bigger than expected. The home was beautiful and extremely spacious. The views were breathtaking!
Don H. Sep 2020
This is a beautiful spacious home away from home. Nicely appointed throughout. Five Adults and two children ( 2 & 5) didn’t feel crowed at all. We loved the experience. Just 5 minutes to town. Great find!
Julia C. Sep 2020
We had a great stay at this home. It’s beautiful and spacious, really top notch.

A few things happened on this trip:
* Getting local information and/help about the property was not possible.
* Calling support took at least 30 minutes (sometimes hours) before someone could help out.
* I was falsely billed an extra $500 for a reschedule.
* Support for extenuating circumstances given that roads were being blocked fires were ignored.

Paid 1500 for 2 nights. Completely neglected as a customer.

This property has sweeping views of the ocean and is much larger of a home than the pictures show! The deck and living room spaces are huge and comfortable, and we loved the hot tub. Very close to town and access to outdoor adventures in the area. Lots of TVs throughout the home (although we didn't use them) and wood burning fire places, which would be great in the winter. The space was very clean which we appreciated, especially during COVID.

We've stayed in over 80 Airbnbs, so going through an agency was different and presented some issues that impacted our stay:
*We didn't realize there were two rental units downstairs that existed and were booked; those folks kept wandering up to our deck and was unclear which space was ours/private.
*We weren't aware the tap water would be drinkable but brown, and that we should be bringing bottled water.
*The refrigerator was broken and we had to spend hours the first night troubleshooting how to fix it so we didn't lose all our food. Thankfully we were able to clean the vents and fix it. Unfortunately there was no water hook up for the water filter or ice maker either. But one of the Vacasa representatives came over the next morning with a case of water and ice, which was helpful
*The oven door doesn't close all the way, so really tough to bake or cook anything with that appliance.
*The listing doesnt indicate kitchen amenities - they had salt, pepper and maple syrup - but would be helpful to list so people know what to bring.
*There were cigarette ashes all over the deck tables, which we had to clean.

Considering the cost, we likely would not come back due to these issues and find an Airbnb instead where more attention is paid to the details and it's easier to contact the host with issues. BUT, we're taking it with a grain of salt and appreciated the beautiful view and home for while we were there.

We stayed at Whalerock four nights and loved every moment. The house is wonderful with spectacular views whether you're inside, on the deck, or in the hot tub. Trinidad is a fun little town with the essentials, and the close proximity to redwood national park is what attracted us from the start.

What a wonderful place to stay...amazing view!

This house is amazing. The living space is large and the gorgeous views are everywhere. We loved walking down to the observation deck and coastline on the property. There are 3 things that bothered me. 1) For the price of this rental, it's silly that shower supplies are not included. 2) The house could have been cleaner. The tile floors were sticky, and there were dust bunnies and ants on them as well. The cabinets and doors were not clean and there were a few dirty dishes in the cabinet. 3) We were called at 9:45 pm one night (on Ohio landline # so I didn't get message until we were home) that we were being too loud for the tenants below. Our family was playing a board game (supplied in the closet of the house). While it was an animated game and we were making noise and laughing (windows were open to cool the place so I'm sure that helped the noise travel), it's ridiculous to think we can't do those things at that time. 11:00 pm or later I could understand. This rental is a bit pricey for having tenants below in the first place, but I was not pleased that we were told we can't make noise having simple family fun.
For the record, I tried calling about items 1 and 2, but couldn't reach anyone (I was apparently not calling the right #). I eventually gave up because I wanted to just enjoy my vacation and not complain. But I do think people should be aware of these things, especially that the noise restrictions seem to be a bit much.

We really enjoyed our stayed at the Whalerock Home. Absolutely nothing but great things to say about this home. It was clean, had everything we needed, and offered amazing views. Patricks Point Rd. was also a great place for my morning runs.

everything we dreamed of and much more.

This house was everything we thought it would be plus! I have never seen my husband so relaxed and the kids loved playing outside. Little things were taken care of and hiking recommendations were appreciated. We would go back in a heartbeat!
. Aug 2018
The home lived up to my every expectation. It was clean and immaculate. The views from the deck and from inside the rooms was amazing.
. Aug 2018
Exceeded our expectations. The location is breath taking and the house was perfect.
. Jul 2018
Views are incredible, deck space is great, fire places, hot tub all fantastic!!House is really nice but the fact that you don't have the full house at this price point is less than ideal. However I will admit we had no issues with the other guests. My only other complaint is the lack of washer and dryer, again at this nightly rate I think it should have washer dryer.
. Jun 2018
Just a perfect place to step away from life's stresses. Go now and Retreat to this stunning cliff house with grand coastline and endles ocean views. Refresh, refresh, and be tantalized!
. May 2018
Had an awesome time at this beautiful home with stunning ocean views. Highly recommend and the photos do not do it justice.

Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the ocean was fantastic.
. May 2018
Amazing time. Well worth it. If you take the hike down to the water, make sure you are prepared lol.
. Apr 2018
Our family of 6 had more than enough room in this large home. The views were stunning, the hot tub was relaxing, and the experience left us refreshed. The home was close to several great hikes in the Redwoods, but it was hard at times to get the kids to leave because the loved being in the home. We enjoyed out time and hope to return in the future.

The view is spectacular. We wanted for nothing. TrueType a special spot on this earth.
