About Kevin & Linda Carpenter

Four generations of our family enjoy our beach house why not yours? We are not some large corporation with impersonal workers who view you as just another tourist or booking. We are a family who had a dream so we bought some property in OBX. We deal with other small to midsized firms as much as possible so that we can retain that personal touch and our guests truly feel that they are guests when they come for a visit to our home. We offer a military & public safety discount not just because we are both but as proud Americans, we are thankful for other's service and mindful of their sacrifice. Come spend a week at one of our 2 vacation homes and you’ll have memories for a lifetime!

Kevin & Linda Carpenter purchased this house in 2008

Why Kevin & Linda Carpenter chose Whalehead Beach

We are close to anything you need but away from everything you want to avoid.

We have a hot tub, a heated pool, sand volleyball, basketball court, gameroom 8 TVs, screened in porch, lots of deck space, propane grill and a massive picnic table.

If this house doesn't meet your needs please consider our other home. 'On Sail' #335502 is located 5 miles south in the private gated community of Spindrift on an acre of land and sleeps 16.

Beautiful, relaxing home. Miss it so much.

  • 5 of 5

This house was just such a great place to spend a week with the family. The pool was wonderful, the beach access was super close, and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days at the Ha-Sea-Enda. The whole place was very clean and spacious with a large kitchen and nice-sized bedrooms. Every room is air-conditioned and there is a second refrigerator in the garage. The pool is very secluded and large...and the location of the house is across the street from the ocean...very convenient. We would definetly go back and we highly recommend the Ha-Sea-Enda

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Ha-Sea-Enda previously, along with having experiences at other OBX beach house, I must say that this home is perfect. Many beach homes in the area are quite a walk from the beach, while this location is directly across the street. The home is up to date, with a large kitchen - perfect for big family gatherings! Also, the large window in the front of the house provides an amazing view of the water. There is also a large porch off the top level, which makes for great views of the ocean at any time of day. The home was perfectly clean when we arrived and the property is well-maintained. The shopping and dining area of OBX is a short drive away, where there is plenty to do for all ages. I highly recommend this home as an OBX rental, whether it is your first time there or if you are a frequent visitor. You will surely not be disappointed.

Ha-Sea-Enda Review

  • 4 of 5

Overall vacation experience was good. Close to beach access walkway.Our dog had a great time playing on the beach and being in a new atmosphere. It was kind of a pain bringing 2 garbage bags full of towels, and renting bed sheets. There were quite a few stairs to climb, and pool access was from the bottom or top floor only. Not recommended for handicapped individuals. We had a little trouble with the TV's and fridge upon arrival, but those kinks were worked out. Nice place overall! Location is about 30 minutes away from Southern Shores, a long windy road to get back into "town".

Beach Lovers Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

If you love the beach - not the "honky-tonk" of mini-golf, fast food restaurants,shell shops, candy stores that locate in most seaside resort areas - but the BEACH - sand, waves, sunshine, nature and restful quiet - Ha-Sea-Enda is for you!

Our clan is made up of "chosen family" and a few grown children - when jobs permit. 2008 is our 4th Spring Break at the Outer Banks and the first where we've brought our dog. The bedroom suites give everyone their own space and privacy as needed. The wide porch and tile entry make is easy to keep sand from coming into the house on shoes and paws!

In March the neighborhood is almost deserted. The beach is wonderful to walk on - full of shells to gather and sea birds to watch. One can view the ocean from the main living area, all decks and porches, and from four of the bedrooms. The well appointed kitchen is perfect for those, like our clan, who love to cook and skip the restaurant scene. The hot tub offers warm relaxation under the stars. All bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable.

Since we visit in the "off" season it is an easy trip down the highway for some shopping and a visit to Manteo. In the evening the sun sets to the back of the house. On several evenings we saw deer in the back yard.

We had a fabulous time and appreciated the fast response from the property maintenance folks who came to take care of burnt out lights. The owners were delightful and easy to work with when making plans for our holiday. When we couldn't figure out the dvd player, they quickly responded to our email and then called the house to walk us through the instructions.

We plan to use homeaway website for other vacations in the future and definitely plan to reutrn to Ha-Sea-Enda next Spring!
