Whalehead Beach house description

As with most houses on the Outer Banks, we rent from Saturday to Saturday (during the high season).

You'll love the easy walk to the beach with lifeguards on duty during the season . Inside, comfortable and colorful furniture, a carefully selected collection of artwork, and plenty of games and amusements make Mermaid Tales a delightful home-away-from-home for your vacation.

The ground entry level has a bedroom (2 single twins and bunk beds), laundry room with high efficiency washer and dryer, full bath and a spacious den/game room with wet bar that gives easy access to the pool. Mid-level has a master bedroom with full bath and deck access, plus two more bedrooms, and another full bath.

The upper level has a master bedroom with full bath and private deck. A light and airy great room with a gas fireplace, an enclosed porch, and gourmet kitchen with large countertop space for 6 bar stools. And, who wouldn't love an office/quiet area with a view? For anyone looking to telecommute from the beach, Mermaid Tales is equipped with a cable modem and Wireless Internet Access. Bring your laptop - they'll never know you're checking email from the pool!
