Recent Whalehead Beach reviews
"My family and extended family (6 adults and 6 kids ages 7,6,6,5,1,9mo) enjoyed this home for the spaciousness, with many rooms and bathrooms. Accommodations are simple and very comfortable, although somewhat dated. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and the walk to the beach was easy and convenient. Owner was extremely pleasant and flexible. We would definitely stay here again."

"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."

"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."

"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!!"
