Recent Whalehead Beach reviews

  • Best in 30+ Years at Corolla

    "My family has been coming to the Whalehead Beach area in Corolla for more than 30 years, and I can't remember a nicer house than this one. The beds were unbelievably comfortable! The layout is thoughtful, the furnishings are tasteful and the appliances are new and in perfect working order. Everything worked! This house has the hallmark of owners who care and are involved in the beach house, and that has obviously made the house as appealing as it is. I am an early riser and especially liked taking one of the grandchidren on a morning walk to the Food Lion or one of the coffee shops around the corner: donuts for the kids, coffee for grandpa."

  • Robert and Denise Mechanicsville, VA

    "What a wonderful week at a beautiful home. We had 6 adults and 6 children (5-10 years old) and had plenty of room. House was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and then some. Plenty of activities close and/or within the home to cover any rainy day. Wonderful pool, clean and well maintained. Everything was in good working condition. We even made it through a hurricane Arthur, a very unusual event this early in the season but it was non eventful, slept through it. Beautiful by noon the next day. Getting to the beach was easy as wonderful walkway close to the house or a parking lot you could park in. Lifeguards were an added plus and were very good at watching situations. Rodney ( owner) was very helpful and easy to work with, answering any question within 24hr or less. We would definitely recommend "Mermaid Tales" for your next OBX stay."

  • OMG!!! It was perfect!!

    "I rented this fantastic home so that my extended family could celebrate the many "holidays" that occur during the month of May. Our vacation started on Mothers' Day and was soon followed by my mom's 74th birthday. My parents' 50th anniversary and my father's birthday are May 22nd and May 25th respectively. Our group included family members from Georgia, NC (Goldsboro), DC and Maryland. I arrived with my mother, my 92-year-old grandmother, and two 2.5-year-olds (grandniece and granddaughter). My father, uncle, 3 brothers, sister, sister-in-law, 3 additional nieces and a nephew (all pre-teen), and an older family friend arrived later in the week. The house was perfect for our group. Each bedroom having a private bath was awesome! The amenities were great, from the pool table to the hammock on the deck to the big-screen TVs. The hot tub, pool and grills were all given proper workouts. The stairs and the mini-sized grills were a little challenging - but any complaints were tempered by the excellence of everything else. Having two refrigerators was extremely helpful. Getting to the beach from the house was a short walk and well worth it. The nearby shopping options came in very handy considering our frequent trips. I will (and already have) recommend this property and Elan Vacations to everyone I know. Thank you so much for the role you played in making wonderful memories for my family."

  • We had a fabulous week :)

    "I have always wanted to visit the Outer Banks. Once I talk to Jim about SeaForever ( Jim answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly) I stopped looking for houses to rent. His house was perfect for the eight of us. Our week was definitely "the best girls week ever". This was in no small part due to SeaForever. We spent many hours catching up at the beach,sitting poolside,sitting in the Hot Tub,sitting on the third floor deck and sitting in the great room. We also enjoyed the heated pool. In the Master Suite I could hear the ocean and watch the sunrise lying in bed! We cooked many meals in the well equipped kitchen. Two restaurants we loved were: Agave Roja in Corolla walking distance from the house. Second Blue Point in Duck which we stopped at for lunch on the way to the Airport. Thanks so much Jim and Lisa for a much needed rest and relaxation from our daily stresses. We all went home very refreshed and happy !"
