"This was one of the best VRBOs we have ever rented. A real standout! The cottage sits on a bluff with great views to the ocean and the cove. The cottage was immaculate and well furnished. We spent a great deal of time sitting at the table at the front window watching the waves in the cove below. We had fun following the path down to the cove and walking on the beach and poking in the tide pools. Ginny and Norm were very helpful with a warm greeting and a guided tour of the cove access and amenities of the cottage. They provided a comprehensive guide of things to do and where to eat and shop. Although the cottage is actually on the same property as Ginny and Norm's residence, it felt very secluded and private. Ginny and Norm even left us a loaf of artisan bread from the local bakery and a jar of jam on our arrival day. All in all a great experience. We hope to return and would recommend this to all our friends. We would not recommend for families with small children because of the nearness and steepness of the bluff. Thanks to Ginny and Norm for a wonderful stay."

We absolutely LOVED staying in your beautiful home in Trinidad. The house is so MAGNIFICENT that we couldn't believe we were honored enough to be staying there !! I viewing were so breathtaking !! One night I got up to use the bathroom and looked out our bedroom window as I past it. There I saw the full moon reflecting on the water...I will never forget that wonderful memory. We came to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, but we will have to think of another excuse to return :)"

"My wife and I stayed here for long vacations nearly every year for more than a decade (cumulatively, I would guess we spent more than a year here). The view is beyond breathtaking, and the cabin is situated at the end of a promontory with the cabin nestled against a hill so that you see no other homes (except very far off), giving you the feeling of being the only people on earth. The cabin itself is functional but ordinary: you're here for the escape and the view. This cabin was the spot where my recently-passed wife and I spent many of our happiest days together, and while it occasionally shows its age in the need for repairs, the owner has been responsive when needed."

Excellent home base for exploring and experiencing ocean and redwoods
"We vacation along the California coast 2-3 x a year. We enjoy the Humbolt region: redwood hiking, dog friendly beaches, kayaking, wonderful opportunities for nature photography and plein air painting, bicycling along the coast and several good restaurants. We found the Whales Tale perfect for us: river and ocean and wildlife views from the expansive dining room windows, a clean-casual homey environment, many windows allowing natural sunlight, easy access to the freeway to travel throughout the area, a quiet neighborhood, nice spacious backyard and front yard, nice hot tub w view toward the ocean. It's nice, too, to have an enclosed garage available. Property manager was immediately available to answer a few questions."
