“Beautiful place, no hospitality at all.”
Reviewed 7 July 2006

We booked four nights at Whalesong based on these reviews and their website. The gardens are fantastic, the location is wonderful, great views from the private hot tub and decks. When we had a few issues I attempted to call the manager several times during our stay. I did not receive a return call on my cell or the house phone. The house needs some inside maintenance. The problems are not big. The lack of any sort of hospitality from the manager was odd and disconcerting.

This is by far the finest example of what a vacation rental home should be: a place the owners use themselves, equipped better than any and pristinely maintained. The location is just a few steps from the ocean in the middle of the seaside village with wonderful views and gardens. This will surely raise the bar on vacation home accomodations. See their web site at [--] for a taste.

Trinidad's WHALESoNG HOUSE & GARDENS is exactly as represented in their website: whalesonghouse.com.

In fact, the website is a wonderful experience of its own and can give you an idea of just what it was like for us.

Apparently it is a well-kept secret, recommended primarily by locals to their visiting friends and relatives.

A great place for a personal renewal or honeymoon. The flowering gardens, the sculptured fountain, the hundreds of books and videos, the views, the strategic location, etc, etc.

Trinidad is what Mendocino used to be like twenty years ago.

We loved it and can't wait to go back for a second and third honeymoon!

Thank you, WHALESoNG!
