Why Joan and Steve chose Whalehead Beach

After vacationing and enjoying family reunions in the Outer Banks north beaches for more than 12 years we purchased this home in 2010. Corolla and Whalehead Beach will always be a special place to relax, enjoy the sand and ocean but also to share our wonderful experience with others.

What makes this house unique

This fully equipped home is located in a private community in Corolla on a large corner lot with very easy beach access. The large sea pines that border the property offer privacy not common in the area. The house is located minutes from local dining and shopping areas, as well as the entrance to the 4-wheel drive beach and other areas of interest . Every amenity has been considered to make this your best vacation yet!
