Holiday Rental House
Crafted of heart redwood, WHALESoNG HOUSE is a charming two-story home with three cozy bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully-stocked small kitchen with an adjacent dining area and a living room with a brick-surrounded woodstove fireplace. A designer’s delight, WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS is lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, verdant, rear garden with multiple rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, princess flowers, camellias and other perennials. 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.

A designer’s delight, WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS is lavishly landscaped with an enclosed, verdant, rear garden with multiple rhododendrons, climbing roses, hydrangeas, princess flowers, camellias and other perennials. 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 people can be accommodated comfortably in the three bedrooms. All are dressed with luxurious down comforters. There is a cozy bathtub in the bright, upper bathroom and a narrow 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.The furnishings were chosen by the owners for their elegance as well as comfort. Some are precious, sturdy, family heirlooms. 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 coffeemaker, microwave oven, a full-size 1954 GE refrigerator in perfect condition, a Maytag portable dishwasher, a four-burner electric stove, and various Cuisinart and other brand mixers, blenders and crock pots. Attractive cookware, service-ware and accessories are provided in quantity for your home-away-from-home comfort. The cable TV media room features a large TV and DVD player. In addition, there are many board games and puzzles for those quiet TV-free, intimate family evenings. You are only asked to treat them gently and return them to their locations.
