Guestbook comments from the owner

Vacations at the beach with a disabled family member can become a lot of work instead of a vacation. Whispering Sands changed that for us, and our trips to the beach will never be the same. Our son had the time of his life, with a pool that was easy to get in and out of, a hot tub that held all of us, an elevator and ramps that gave him the freedom to be in all areas of a magnifcent home, and also made loading and unloading all our stuff a lot easier than lugging it up flighjts of stairs (something that age makes more dificult every year). Because of the thoroughness of the realty company that handles the property, we were able to find places to eat, attractions to see, and for our son, a 4-wheel drive vehicle to rent, so we could visit beaches only accessable by 4-wheeling. Also, how could you not love that kitchen, it had everything you needed to cook any meal you could imagine. We loved our vacation (a dream come true) and the charm of Hatteras Island. Hopefully if all goes well, we visit again next year and be "able to be disabled at the beach" again. Thanks for a truly great vacation in a truly great house. We hopefully will see you next year.

A Wonderful House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 12 stayed at Whispering Sands over Thanksgiving, 2012. We had one of our best vacations ever, due mainly to our accommodations. The house is huge, super clean and very well arranged. Every bedroom has a full bath. This made for a private retreat for all family members. The two car garage and elevator are life savers. We arrived during a nor'easter and being able to unload our car inside the garage and transport coolers and suitcases up on the elevator was awesome. The dining room table easily sat our entire family for meals. It was really nice to have everyone at the table together for our Thanksgiving meal. There was no need for a separate children's table. An added plus is the view! We could see the ocean and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse from the dining room table. The house is one block from the ocean and is an easy walk and the house is situated so that you have a clear view of the ocean out all the front windows on the 2nd and 3rd level. We didn't use the swimming pool but we did use the hot tub. It is large and very relaxing. The kitchen may be my favorite part of the house. It is huge with lots and lots of counter tops. There are two dishwashers (a really good idea) and two separate sink areas. There is plenty of room for several cooks and we didn't mind other people joining us in the kitchen while we worked. A small table in the kitchen offers a view of the woods behind Whispering Sands. There are many deer in these woods and they came into the backyard almost everyday. There are also some cats that hang out in the woods, too. These cats managed to intimidate the deer. The deer, which are huge, are clearly afraid of the little cats. It was pretty funny watching the cats chase the deer off the property. Better than TV. 5 adults went to Pop's Raw Bar one evening. That was certainly an experience! It's mainly a bar but the food is delicious, some of the best seafood we have ever had. We all got out and walked on the beach everyday, even in the rain. The waves were huge and impressive. The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and museum aren't far away and that is a good destination if you have children along for the walk. The kids spent a lot of time digging in the sand, building sand castles and they found some splendid shells. We loved that the house is on a cul-de-sac. The kids brought their skates with them and they skated in the road with no fear of being run over. We all highly recommend Whispering Sands and would definitely return!
