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."

"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."

"House had outstanding amenities that are perfectly suited for a fun and relaxing time in OBX. The location is absolutely ideal - near the beach and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and grocery store. Plenty of outdoor living space - great views - and a turnkey experience. I plan to be back again next year!"

"I have always wanted to visit the Outer Banks. Once I talk to Jim about SeaForever ( Jim answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly) I stopped looking for houses to rent. His house was perfect for the eight of us. Our week was definitely "the best girls week ever". This was in no small part due to SeaForever. We spent many hours catching up at the beach,sitting poolside,sitting in the Hot Tub,sitting on the third floor deck and sitting in the great room. We also enjoyed the heated pool.
In the Master Suite I could hear the ocean and watch the sunrise lying in bed!
We cooked many meals in the well equipped kitchen.
Two restaurants we loved were: Agave Roja in Corolla walking distance from the house.
Second Blue Point in Duck which we stopped at for lunch on the way to the Airport.
Thanks so much Jim and Lisa for a much needed rest and relaxation from our daily stresses. We all went home very refreshed and happy !"
