Recent Whalehead Beach reviews
"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!!!"

"The house was awesome! It was everything it was described to be! We had 8 adults and 6 kids (ages 5-9) and there was simply not enough time in the weekend to fully enjoy everything the house has to offer! We WALKED to the jet ski rentals, sweet shop, beach, and could have walked too much more If we were interested!! It was a long drive up the highway, seemingly away from everything but the beach, right up until we were literally around the corner from the house, then we found ourselves in what can only be described as the center of the action in corolla! Loved it! We will be back!!"

Simply wonderful (and better than that for families)
"I almost never post online reviews, but feel compelled to do so for Castle by the Sea. I had never been to the Outer Banks - and with twin toddlers and an infant i had serious worries about whether we would all be comfortable at a seaside house. Castle by the Sea was simply perfect for us. It is spacious and smartly laid out. The pool is beautiful. And it simply could not be more accommodating for little people. There is a child-proof gate on the top floor; a nursery with crib and pack-and-play and best of all a kiddie pool attached to the big pool. It made keeping the children safe and happy so easy - which made mom and dad's vacations. And having said all of that - what really matters about Castle by the Sea is it's breathtaking views and direct access to a gorgeous, never crowded (at least while we were there in mid-August) beach.
Anyway, i could go on and on - but bottom line is that it is hard to imagine a better place for a family to spend a week in summer. You can't go wrong with this house."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The house was great. Kitchen was well stocked with everything. Pool was a change from the ocean. The kids loved it!. A couple of the sliding doors in bedrooms were hard to slide and one did not lock. On the porch on top floor, the nail heads need to be hammered down. When walking in your bare feet it really hurt your feet. All in all it was a great week and would definitely come again."
