Wonderful experience. Exceptional property.

  • 5 of 5

The WhaleTale at Inlet Beach is a truly lovely property. Quite nice upscale décor with stone counters and Viking appliances. The furnishings are reminiscent or Restoration Hardware/Pottery Barn with Beachy accents. The interior and exterior were very clean. The Paradise30A Property management services were exceptional and extremely responsive. We highly recommend the house, location and property team!

Beautiful house. Many items not working.

  • 2 of 5

Giving 2 stars only because Whale Tale is a great house. Unfortunately, many inconveniences. Main TV, freezer, A/C - all not working. 12 repair visits later and day before we departed, items were repaired. Also, noisy construction site next door which woke us each morning 7:00am with hammers, electric saws, and compressors. Not to mention the trucks that completely blocked our driveway in and out most days. Not much of a vacation...

Owner's Response: We are sorry for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your vacation. Our priority is to make sure you are comfortable and happy during your stay. We were able to repair the A/C as same day service. The TV required a special order part which was delivered the next day and the freezer require one week for parts to arrive. The home is immaculate and makes a great vacation home as you can see from the other reviews We hope you understand these issues were unpredictable and handled as quickly as possible.

Practically perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Whale Tale. The home is beautiful and well stocked! The "pool" was great for our needs since we had small children. The golf cart was a great bonus getting to and from the beach. We had trouble with the freezer and were given a brand new deep freeze which worked great. The neighbors were remodeling and very noisy, but it didn't slow us down. We loved our time together as a family! Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property and location is ideal for a relaxing and enjoyable get away. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable, with plenty of areas for sitting and enjoying family or friends, whether it be inside, on one of the multiple decks, by the fire pit or enjoying the swim spa. The beach is a short walk or pack all your gear in the golf cart for a quick ride to the beach. Have a delicious breakfast at the Donut House, cocktails at the Plaza or enjoy a wonderful meal at Edwards and a stroll through the multiple shopping areas. Perfect location! Can't wait to go back!

Spectacular Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely beautiful beach retreat! Every detail of this home is perfection. It is so well decorated and you feel at home as soon as you walk through the doors. The gourmet kitchen is amazing, and there is plenty of space to gather in groups, or have a little privacy if you want. The master suite is also amazing - I took several pictures of the decorating to "steal" ideas for my own home. The location is great, an easy walk to the beach, but you also have the golf cart to haul your gear down and get set up. The shopping and dinning options are also great. The swim spa is a big plus for evening cocktails as well as relaxing by the fire pit. I can' say enough good things about this beautiful property. We will definitely be making this an annual trip - great girlfriend vacation!

Luxury Home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Every room is decorated just perfect and it looks like something you would see in an interior design magazine. Kudos to the decorator! The house has lots of space for everyone. Very clean. Each floor had a beautiful deck to relax on. The fire pit was a nice touch to enjoy evening beverages and listen to music. Location of this home is perfect - very close to beach, shopping, and great dining. I will certainly be back! LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
