Recent Whalehead Beach reviews
Clean and Good Value
"There was only 11 of us but This home was very good in so many ways. It was clean and had all you need to have an enjoyable stay. Plenty of bikes, chairs, boogie boards. Although the house is on Corolla drive , it is located close to the walkway for real easy access to the beach. I loved the giant wagon to bring everything down. The pool and hot tub were perfect , the BBQ was oversized, making cooking easier and faster. TV was perfect for the kids , decks were nice. Everything about this house we found sufficient. We had a good time :)"

The Salty Dog is very relaxing and comfortable - bright and sunny
"This house has been perfect for us over the years. We have stayed here before and the vibe of this house is so wonderful. It is comfortable, clean, well stocked and well maintained. The pool was sparkling but the best is the porch swing on the second level deck where you can read, relax and just unwind. The corner lot was very convenient to the beach access which was a short walk from the house. You can bike to the Food Lion or to the Whalehead Club. We love this house because it is exactly what a beach house should be- comfortable and relaxing- not so fancy that you will worry about spills but bright, sunny and warm. We keep coming back because of the perfect location, the porch swing and the happy feeling we have staying here and....... because our dogs love it! (p.s. the stairs will keep you in shape!)"

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was clean.
I was more than happy with the location.
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We had a great stay. The house is located just a short walk to the beach. The house could be updated a bit as the carpet was full of stains and some things were older but for a house that allows several dogs you can't expect too much."

"We stayed, with two other families, at Mermaid Tales this past August and our experience was fantastic. This home was beautiful, clean and well kept up and it was easy to see that the homeowners took great pride in their property. The owners were exceptionally attentive and readily available. A great example of this is that the Sunday after we arrived, we discovered that one of the king sized beds wasn't functioning properly (a sleep number bed). We contacted the owner and got an immediate response - the mattress needed to be replaced. Because it was a Sunday and delivery was not available, the owner and his wife drove 3 hours to Corolla to deliver and install a brand new mattress that evening. They could have waited until the following day for a delivery service, but went the extra mile (miles) to ensure that their renters were comfortable. We had an amazing stay at Mermaid Tales and wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again."
