Crafted of heart redwood in 1971, Whalesong House is a charming two-story home with three spacious bedrooms and two complete bathrooms, a fully-appointed gourmet chef's kitchen with an adjacent dining area and living room with a brick-surrounded, woodstove fireplace, a comfortable media room, upper and lower decks overlooking the ocean and a new, private, Hot Spring spa which can accommodate six adults. A designer's delight, Whalesong House and gardens are lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, verdant, rear garden of over 50 specimen rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, princess flowers, camellias and other perennials. A profusion of colors burst from hanging baskets of annuals around the exterior of the house throughout the season. Designed by one of the owners, the serene, sculptured, 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. 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. Six adults can be accommodated comfortably in the three bedrooms, one on the upper level with a queen bed and a spare day-bed, one on the lower level with a double bed and another on the lower level with two single beds. All are dressed with luxurious down comforters and many comfortable pillows. There is a cozy bathtub in the bright, upper bathroom and a shower in the polished burl-countered lower bathroom. Complimentary bathrobes and linens are provided for each guest during your stay. The attached garage has been converted to a spacious storage and laundry room with a large-capacity clothes washer and dryer, as well as a full-size ironing board and steam iron for your convenience. The furnishings were chosen by the owners for their elegance as well as comfort. Some are precious, sturdy, family heirlooms. There is a comfortable sofa and two upholstered Bergere chairs in the living room and a teak dining table in the adjacent dining area. A teak writing desk is nestled in the corner of the non-fiction book alcove next to the kitchen. The upper media loft has upholstered wingback chairs and a comfortable sofa. There are parquet floors, wall-to-wall carpeting and Oriental rugs throughout. Original art and photographs are tastefully displayed in the rooms and hallways. Massive, antique architectural pieces punctuate the apices of the interior and exterior walls. The kitchen has a redundant supply of appliances and utensils including an automatic fresh-grinding coffeemaker which can be set to wake you with a rich aroma, a spacious, Panasonic microwave oven, a full-size 1954 GE refrigerator in perfect condition, a new Amana stove and oven, a new Maytag portable dishwasher, various Cuisinart and other brand mixers, blenders and crock pots, as well as grills and hot sandwich makers. Attractive cookware, service-ware and accessories are provided in quantity for your home-away-from-home comfort. Should you require a gradual decompression from the distractions of modern life to the peaceful cooperation of man and nature which personifies Whalesong House & Gardens, there is a large, inventoried collection of Emmy-nominated videos as well as hundreds of inventoried fiction and non-fiction books and journals lining the many shelves in the living room and study. The cable TV media room features a large Sony TV and DVD/VCR player. There is a stereo CD/FM system in the living room and portable stereos in each bedroom. The upper bedroom has a separate cable TV/VCR player for your private viewing. In addition, there are many board games and puzzles for those quiet TV-free, intimate family evenings. The books, videos, CD's and games may be used at your pleasure. You are only asked to treat them gently and return them to thier original spots.

Michael F from Mumbai, Maharashtra recommends this vacation rental
We had a very good time at the Whalesong. A beautifully located bungalow with a nice garden, fully equipped kitchen, hot tub, fantastic views, proximity to beach and restaurants, well stocked book and video librtaries... It had it all. Probably the highlight of our SF-Seattle drive.

Wow! You must have done many wonderful things on your trip between SF and Seattle and it is really nice that the Whalesong and Trinidad was the highlight. Come back again.
Marc R from Concord, CA recommends this vacation rental
It was the 50th wedding anniversary for my parents. My Sister and her Family of 6, our parents and myself with a companion all enjoyed the weekend comfortably together at this wonderfully comfortable yet unpretentious seaside home. I would do it again and recommend it to anyone with a large family looking for a relaxed getaway weekend.
