Property description

Yes, you are renting from the owner through a local caretaker, and not a large real estate rental company. This is a weekly rental with a 7 night minimum (Sunday to Sunday). If you want to stay less than 7 nights, the rate is the same. If you see our home on Craigslist, do not respond to the ad. This home is only listed on www.vrbo.com and www.homeaway.com

Newly renovated and refurnished with top of the line fixtures & Pottery Barn furnishings and decor – Reasonably priced 4 bedroom-2 bathroom with killer rooftop deck OCEAN TO SOUND VIEWS in prestigious Whalehead Club. Just 2 easy blocks to the beach (just over 1100'), this renovated and refurnished cottage has a huge private heated pool, private hot tub, a huge enclosed outdoor shower with changing area, and a killer roof-top deck.

Screaming with old time character, “Wish You Were Here” will make you want to return again and again. This home was also professionally decorated and landscaped. Everything has been lovingly redone using the very best of materials and continually updated.

The white bead board cabinets in the kitchen and white-washed wainscoting lends a cottage feel to the house. (But the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances will remind you that you're in the 21st century!) The bathrooms with large soaking tubs and checkered floors will remind you of simpler days.

The 2nd floor great room with hardwood flooring is open and inviting - the kitchen opens to the dining area and spacious family room with 42' flat screen tv.

There are 2 queen bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and direct access to the 2nd floor deck, two twin bedrooms (with 2 beds in each) and a private loft area with daybed. The loft area also serves as a getaway with games, books, game table and tv. All sleeping areas have flat screen tv's.

For your convenience, there are 2 adult Bikes, beach umbrellas, a beach cart, wheeled cooler and 7 beach chairs are provided.

There's a huge outdoor shower and changing area.

A Full laundry room is on the ground floor.

The Outdoor tiki bar and grill in pool area make a great hangout for days or evenings by the pool.

Linens and towels are included. Heating the pool is available for ONLY $175!.

Turnover day is Sunday, check-out is 11am check in is at 3pm.

Absolutely NO PETS, no smoking, and one-third of occupants must be at least 25 year of age. 50% deposit is required to reserve, this is non-refundable for any reason, unless a replacement is found, in which case a $275 cancellation fee will apply. There is a $500 security deposit mandatory.

Just pack your toothbrush and head to “Wish You Were Here”, your new home away from home.

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.
