Recent Whalehead Beach reviews

  • Our home away from home!

    "Thank you Dennis and Julie for sharing your beautiful home with us again! "Wish you were here" is the perfect get away! The house is immaculate, comfortable, quiet and beautifully decorated! We had everything we needed, and enjoyed every minute of our stay! We truly felt at home with the soft sheets and towels, nice hot showers in pretty bathrooms, fully appointed kitchen with top notch appliances, and we made good use of the laundry washer and and dryer. The beach is VERY close and easy to get to via the nice walkways in the neighborhood. We enjoyed the sunrises, pelicans/other sea birds, collecting shells and just sitting and reading on the beach. We used the beach cart, umbrella, chairs and cooler provided at the house. The weather was mostly in the low 70s and one day it was 87 degrees. The beach is quiet and used by couples and families ....We were further spoiled by the wonderful heated pool and top deck, where we took pictures of the sunset over the sound, saw the light from Currituck Lighthouse in the evenings, and one night we watched a huge ship pass by on the ocean. Other fun stuff included trips to Sanctuary Vineyards, Manteo (Elizabethan Gardens and Full Moon Brewery for lunch), Cape Hatteras Lighthouse (saw the beach house from the movie, Nights in Rodanthe, along the way), shopping in Corolla and Duck, and seafood takeout from Steamers. We are repeat guests (stayed July 2011 and May 2015) and highly recommend "Wish you were here"!"

  • Terrapin Station

    "What a fantastic home! 9 bedrooms each with a bathroom. Primo beds and pillows. All new couches. Well stocked with games and DVDs. Tv's everywhere. Plenty of amenities. I highly recommend this vacation home. Short walk to the beach and located on a child friendly street. Loved the hot tub too!!!"

  • 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."

  • Christmas in Corolla!

    "If you're looking for quiet and solitude Christmas in Corolla is the answer! Smileaway is tucked in among other homes and is only an enjoyable walk to the beach. Smileaway is packed with just about everything you need to settle in and enjoy making family memories with. After all my kids and their kids showed up we proceeded to enjoy cooking, playing games, ping pong and pool challenges, and enjoying soaking in the hot tub as well as long walks on the beach, flying kites, bike riding, and some sight seeing and hiking at nearby attractions! Thanks Smileaway!"
