Recent Whalehead Beach reviews

  • 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."

  • Fantastic Beach House!

    "I stayed at Smileaway for an annual group getaway to OBX with my friends. What a wonderful experience! The Owner was super responsive and the large, clean house has everything we could want. It is close to the beach and, although in a quiet neighborhood, is within proximity to nearby shops, restaurants and entertainment. After a day at the beach or siteseeing, we really enjoyed returning to the comforts of the pool, hot tub, multiple decks, pool table, satellite tv, etc., board games and much more. We had a fantastic time and Smileaway far exceeded our expectations. This beach house is perfect for a group or family trip and is a real jem!"

  • Wonderful OBX Vacation

    "This was our 4th time at this house & once again a great time was had by all! Since our last visit the kitchen was upgraded, a new hot tub was purchased, a swing was added to the front deck,a new ping pong table was added to the game room and bunk beds were added to the a third floor bedroom. We didn't realize the the bedroom had been changed to bunks and that is the reason I deducted a star. We had 2 adults sleeping in that room and it was a bit uncomfortable for them. We just love this home for the many reasons. The pool is spacious for large crowds. Your whole group can enjoy it at the same time. There is plenty of outside furniture and the hot tub is a plus w/ a cover that is easy to remove. The game room is perfect w/ a pool table & ping pong table and sm counter and frig. The only thing the game room needs is a sink. There is plenty of seating in the kitchen and living room and the house is so roomy that you can have privacy if you want it and be together for movies and games when you want that too.This house is perfect for large groups,family reunions and wonderful beach memories."

  • 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."

Whalehead Beach Travel Tips

Whalehead Beach Vacation Rentals Are a Treat for Groups

When you choose to stay in Whalehead Beach vacation rentals, you're choosing to have fun at affordable rates. Whalehead Beach vacation rentals are a treat for groups because of their convenient location: you could easily take a day trip to nearby attractions, like Bob's Off-Road Wild Horse Adventures, or for independent fun, Corolla Surf Shop for the gear you'll need to explore the surf and sun. This is an area that is both pristine and developed, with as many shops and boutiques as you would ever want to browse, as well as the endless expanse of un-crowded beach.

Explore North Carolina from Whalehead Beach Houses

If you have always wanted to become familiar with the beauty and elegance of North Carolina, then Whalehead Beach houses are a great starting point. From Whalehead Beach houses, you can visit Corolla Water Sports or the more famous, Kitty Hawk Sports. You could do a wild horse safari with Back-Country Outfitters and Guides, or even something low-key, like Kitty Hawk Kites for private lessons. Young groups enjoy karaoke nights at Dance Heads, and Island Revolution Skate Park, as well as the tried-and-true favorite, Gearworks Laser Tag & Fun Center.

Outer Banks Beach Rentals Are a Great Choice for Any Family

Outer Banks Beach rentals are so much fun that you will want to do everything that's offered in the area. From Coastal Helicopters for aerial views and memorable photography, to the fun and exercise of Jockey's Ridge. The North Carolina Aquarium is a well known attraction for first time visitors, as is Elizabeth II, the full-sized reproduction of a 16th century ship. Other fun attractions that have educational and historic qualities include Wright Brothers Memorial and Currituck Heritage Park and Museum. You will never run-out of things to do in North Carolina!
