Recent Whalehead Beach reviews
The Salty Dog is very relaxing and comfortable - bright and sunny
"This house has been perfect for us over the years. We have stayed here before and the vibe of this house is so wonderful. It is comfortable, clean, well stocked and well maintained. The pool was sparkling but the best is the porch swing on the second level deck where you can read, relax and just unwind. The corner lot was very convenient to the beach access which was a short walk from the house. You can bike to the Food Lion or to the Whalehead Club. We love this house because it is exactly what a beach house should be- comfortable and relaxing- not so fancy that you will worry about spills but bright, sunny and warm. We keep coming back because of the perfect location, the porch swing and the happy feeling we have staying here and....... because our dogs love it! (p.s. the stairs will keep you in shape!)"

"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."

"The house was great. It offered everything we needed , 5 bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms, short walk to beach. We easily accommodated 8 adults and 4 young children.
My suggestion is with the sheets. They were of poor guality and did not stay on the bed. If I were renting again I would bring my own sheets. There are several steps to navigate. This would not be a house for a person with difficulty walking or climbing stairs."
