Recent Whalehead Beach reviews
"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."

"We had a memorable week at Sea Forever! There was 19 of us in total and we had plenty of room. The house seemed to be one of the most well maintained in the area with beautiful landscaping and a great pool. It is an easy walk to the beach and there are plenty of other activities within 5 minutes of driving. We ran out of time to do all the fun stuff we wanted to! The house is so well stocked (bicycles, toys, fabulous kitchen, movies, games, etc.) that you won't need to worry about renting or buying anything except food and souvenirs.
A big influence for picking this house was its wheelchair-accessible bathroom to accommodate my wife. The roll-in shower was a good size and there was enough room overall to maneuver with the door closed. I made a few small recommendations to Jim based on our personal experience that might make things even easier for the next person, and he said they would be implemented.
Speaking of...it was a pleasure to work with Jim and he made sure we had what we needed. Everything you need to know is well laid out in the renters guide. We would definitely go back."

"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."

"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."
