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.

My husband and I just stayed 5 nights for our honeymoon. House was clean and so RELAXING! we'll be coming back for sure. 10/10

Vacasa is a great company! Very responsive! When we checked in there had been an animal that had knocked over the trash bin and spread trash everywhere. We also had an issue with the furnace. These problems were both dealt with almost immediately. The person who dealt with the issues, I believe her name was Jasmine, was prompt, professional and a great representative for your company! Definitely an A+ experience!

We enjoyed our stay at the Whalesong house. The location is exceptional, the ocean views are wonderful and the house is very comfortable and cozy. The grounds are lovely and we enjoyed watching hummingbirds zip around the backyard. The upstairs bedroom does get rather warm in the evening but the ceiling fan certainly helps it feel cooler. The window shades also allow quite a bit of morning sun in but we brought travel blackout shades so we could sleep in a bit. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning to this home.

We have stayed many times at Whalesong due to proximity to our family and walk to Trinidad State beach and hiking the head every day! Love the Beachcomber restaurant and this year enjoyed the Seascape restaurant for breakfast! The house seemed brighter and the bathrooms have been nicely updated past few years and well stocked with towels etc. Plenty of dishes, glasses and utensils, pots and pans! Very pretty front and back flower gardens and a great library! We enjoyed our stay and can see a new couch and carpeting up the stairs and bedrooms in it’s near future.

Our travel plans only had us here for a couple days during which time it rained a bit so we did not get to enjoy the patio or deck. Rest of house was clean and comfortable. Lots of brightly lit space to spread out in. Plus Trinidad is a great little town right on the coast with a great beach and not far from the Redwoods.
Theresia P. Apr 2022
Whalesong is an extremely comfortable and beautiful home. Beautiful ocean views from the living room, kitchen and upstairs bedroom and balcony. Kitchen is well stocked with anything you'd need to cook. Very clean and sparkly! Beds are very comfortable. Short walk to town restaurants and oceanfront. Friendly town. Might suggest some plastic glassware to use outside in the beautiful garden yard.
Emilie R. Apr 2022
This is such a beautiful home. There was plenty of space for me and three friends and it was very clean when we arrived. The backyard is a gorgeous and peaceful garden, the hot tub was great, and the house had all the cooking supplies we needed. There is a small deck off the upstairs bedroom that makes for great sunset watching, too. Comfortable, light-filled, welcoming.

We love Trinidad and have stayed in many vacation homes. This one was the coziest. Very homey, comfortable, clean, and well equipped. The view, the yard - all just lovely!
Yvonne and Chris R. Jun 2021
We have been coming here for years and have always loved it and the location! The recent upgrades has made it so light and comfortable. In addition to the views and location, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped . The front and backyard gardens are magnificently designed and well maintained! Taking a hottub in the private backyard surrounded by rhododendrons is a special treat, and is being able to see the ocean, walk to the beach walk to the Trinidad Head! We are so grateful to have found this place!
DeAnn H. May 2021
The house is great. Spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect. Walking to beach, restaurants and trails. Trinidad is a quiet fishing village. It is also central to great redwoods, animal life and lots of trails for hiking. We definitely want to go back and would stay at Whalesong house again.
Tyler C. Apr 2021
This home was flat out amazing, the staff was extremely helpful, and the location can’t be beat. Will come back!
Christy P. Apr 2021
The house has great views, Hot tub and cute things to explorer throughout the house.
Great experience!

Great home
Great location
We will be back
Brenda W. Nov 2020
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.
Susan R. Nov 2020
Great place, perfect for a remote school-cation with my 2 kids. We had a wonderful time.

Older home that is creaky, but was in a greT lication
Bart L. Mar 2020
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!
. Apr 2019
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.
. Nov 2018
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!
. Nov 2018
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!
. Oct 2018
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 ��
. Sep 2018
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.
. Jul 2018
Loved the house and location.
. Jul 2018
