Whalehead Beach house description

Vacations are for Relaxing, NOT stressing-out in heavy weekend traffic getting there, dealing with crowds waiting to check-in, and doing first-day grocery shopping!

DO get here Friday, get checked-in, settled and chillin' faster and with less hassle than Saturday-Saturday rentals (when 65-70% of OBX vacationers arrive/depart)

DO spend 'Check-in Saturday' kicking-back at the beach, hangin' at the pool or hot tub, or even sight seeing.

DO relax year-round in this family and pet-friendly Whalehead home that offers all the amenities you need for a great vacation.

DO take advantage of off-season Friday-Sunday or Friday-Monday mini-vacations

Beach & Water:
Find the beach a five minute walk away - for your convenience we provide: beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach toys, cooler, and a beach cart to get you and your necessities to and from the beach.

Other beach equipment can be rented & delivered with a phone-call. Fish the Ocean or the Sound - you can get tackle and REQUIRED fishing license at the tackle shop a short walk away.

Dining, Shopping, Entertainment:
Walk 5 minutes to a range of dining choices, a large grocery store, shops, a movie theater, Pub, putt-putt golf and other attractions. Walk slightly further to Timbuk II with a range of dining, shopping, galleries, and other recreation.

For your convenience you can make reservations online - or for faster service call Brindley Beach Vacations at 877-642-3224 and ask for 'WC817 - Dancin' Dolphin'

              Year Purchased: 2001

              Why Whalehead Beach:
              Rented with other families & friends for years. Decided it would be nice to have a place to visit year-round & to gather/share with family and friends.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              * Sunrise and Moonlight walks on the beach. * Sitting/Lying in the Crow's Nest staring at the stars and listening to the sound of waves rolling on the beach. * 3-mile long neighborhood - provides a 6.5 mile riding/running/walking loop away from high-traffic roads. * Walking to the Brew Pub or Bacchus for a break from the mid-day sun. * Walking to the movie theater on a rainy afternoon.
