Whalehead Beach house description

This semi-oceanfront, pet friendly, Outer Banks vacation home, is the perfect choice for your next family vacation. Enjoy the ocean breezes, the sight and sound of the surf and the view of the Currituck Lighthouse from the wide wrap around decks. Ocean's Grace is conveniently located 200 feet from a public beach access, so you'll be only a few steps away from one of USA Today's Top Ten Beaches. Eight bedrooms sleep 22 guests, including five king sized beds, a queen, and bunk beds sleeping 10, a portable crib and a pack & play for the kids. When you're not on the beach, Ocean's Grace has plenty of ways to relax. Downstairs near the pool, the rec room has a wet bar with full size fridge and a microwave, a pool table, foosball table, game table and two pub tables. Upstairs, the great room has a gas fireplace, a big wide screen TV with DVD player and stereo system, and beautiful ocean views. Grab a book from the many offered, put your feet up, sit back, and enjoy the good life. Keeping cool is easy here, with central air conditioning or plenty of windows to let in the cool ocean breeze.

Should you ever feel the need to remind yourself that there's still a busy world outside of tranquil Corolla on the Outer Banks, there is both cable television and wireless internet.

If you love to cook, you'll enjoy preparing meals for the family in the cavernous kitchen that also overlooks the ocean. Both gas and charcoal grills supplement the kitchen with just about anything you could need to prepare and serve your culinary creations. There's plenty of space in the dining room to seat the family at two tables, an infant high chair and a toddler high chair. After dinner, two dishwashers make sure nobody gets stuck with washing the service for 22 by hand.
At night your family retires to eight tastefully decorated, inviting bedrooms with good quality mattresses and your choice of feather or poly pillows. Five of the bedrooms are master suites all with king size beds. The kids will love the two nautical themed bunk rooms. One of the king master suites has a private deck. Four bedrooms open out onto the main deck that wraps around the house and provides access to the pool and hot tub, or up to the roof deck for spectacular star gazing.
Ocean's Grace is pet friendly! Pets are allowed in the cottage, though we do have to ask that your furry friends stay out of the pool and hot tub.

Outside, the cottage has a private salt water swimming pool and jacuzzi, the pool can be heated upon request. Surrounding the pool you'll find plenty of lounge chairs to lay back in and enjoy that relaxing OBX experience you came for. The back yard has a volleyball net, corn hole and horse shoes to entertain those interested in a friendly game and there is a basket ball hoop off the front drive for any desiring a game of hoops. If you'd like to explore the area a bit, there are several bikes available for your pleasure. The Currituck Lighthouse and historic Whalehead Hunt Club are less than 2 miles away.

The three levels of decks are home to a number of comfortable deck chairs and even have a hammock and a porch swing.

Come enjoy Corolla, named as one of the top ten beaches in the nation by USA Today.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: Hi, welcome. I have lived in California since 1973 but my heart has never left the Outer Banks. My Dad was in the Coast Guard so we traveled around a bit. I was one of the lucky kids that got to live in New Orleans and attend Mardi gras, New York and visit the Statue of Liberty and ride the Staten Island Ferry, Maryland, Connecticut and Virginia but my favorite place was always Dad's childhood home on Roanoke Island.

              Why the Owner Chose Whalehead Beach:
              When I cross the Wright Memorial Bridge a peacefulness settles over me that makes my heart happy and my soul sing. Daddy was born and raised on Roanoke Island and many a childhood summer was spent at Grandma's in Wanchese and on the beaches of Nags Head. A lifetime dream of having a cottage on the Banks was finally realized with the purchase of Grace in 2000.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I have had so much fun furnishing Grace and hope you will find her warm and welcoming, with all the amenities you deserve to make your vacation a comfortable and memorable one. Whether you are sitting in the swing or lounging in the hammock you'll be listening to the ocean and enjoying the breezes. Perhaps you prefer being curled up in a comfy chair with a book, Grace has many for you to choose from. Morning brings a chorus of birds and the night sky is absolutely spectacular the stars are so plentiful. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions about Grace or the surrounding area, I would love to talk with you. joy@oceansgrace.com or 310-374-5013 PST
