Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week at the Blue Whale. It was the perfect beach house. The pathway to the beach is just steps away. Stores, coffee shop, ice cream shops, restaurants are less than a 5 min walk. We spent a lot of time on the outside decks. A few dark spots on the carpet in the upstairs bedroom but overall it was clean and comfortable.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Blue Whale. It slept 18 adults comfortably and was only steps from the beach and a short walk to restaurants. The house had all the necessities and more. Perfect home for a large group!

Owner's Response: Hi Celina, we're sorry you experienced this pool issue. We had a lot of rain right before your trip that made the water a bit murky. We began scheduling the pool maintenance people twice as often after we got the feedback from your stay. We haven't heard anything from other guests about the hot water or the shower water pressure, but have given the information to our property maintenance team to assess and recommend repairs if needed. Thank you for your feedback.
