                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: We first ventured to Corolla in 2005, and in the last 9 years, we head down as often as our schedule allows. We enjoy the northern end of Corolla, and the offseason stillness and beauty of the undisturbed wilderness.

                  Why Whalehead Beach:
                  We purchased 'Wish' in 2008 because we knew it could be a great place for families to vacation in the OBX. 'Wish' had never been rented before and previously was used as a private family vacation home. With all the giant homes around, there seems to be a lack of homes more suited to smaller groups that didn't want to stay with 3 or 4 other families. 'Wish' had great bones and a warm feeling when you entered the door, a wonderful open floor plan, and lots of juniper on the walls - she just needed some TLC and updating to bring her to her full potential. What really hooked us was the note on the blackboard in the kitchen - it said 'We are truly going to miss this house'. So we took it upon ourselves to create a place where others could have wonderful family vacation memories. We all have a place like that in our past - where you reminisce about your wonderful family vacations, and we truly hope we have given others a place to think about and smile from the memories.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The rooftop deck at dusk is a must. The amazing sound views reflects the colors in the sky. The huge private pool and pool area is a great way to spend the day. Or it's just a short straight walk to the beach for a day of sun and sand. The single floor living is easy for families with small children, and the loft area makes a great getaway for games, tv, crafts or reading. The house is pet-free, smoke-free, and hardwood floors prevail making it comfortable for those with allergies.
