Golf: THe Exclusive Currituck Club is a few miles from the Sand Dollar. There are other courses within a 30mins drive. We recommend the Pointe and the Carolina Club.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I have grown up at the 'jersey shore'. We went hunting for our summer home in 2004. When we visited Corolla we immediately fell in love with our Sand Dollar at the Outer Banks. We have enjoyed sitting in our Adirondack chairs on the upper deck sipping our favorite beverage of the moment and enjoying the ocean view.

Why the Owner Chose Whalehead Beach, Corolla, NC, USA:
These reviews are from our property management company Brindley Beach.... 5/5 Rating - Hilbert family, Massachusetts 08/11/2015 Perfect for families with older kids! We had a great vacation! 4/5 Rating - Troy, NY 07/07/2015 4/5 Rating - Gossert Family Keedysville, MD 05/26/2015 Great area to walk the dogs and easy access to biking paths. Convenient to everything. 4/5 Rating - Patricia Brooklyn, New York 04/12/2015 We were so glad that we ended up staying at the Sand Dollar. This home was centrally located, very large and clean. We felt right at home and truly enjoyed our stay, in fact we hated to leave! Even though we encountered some cloudy weather days, we enjoyed walks on the beach, the wild horse tour, hot tub and all there was to do at the house. We have already discussed our future stays. Would recommend this home. 3/5 Rating 08/02/2013 Sand Dollar is well situated with a 5 minute walk to the beach and a short drive to groceries and shopping. House was clean and in good repair. Only drawback is the need for upgrades to electronics and certain emenities. No flat screen or HD TV, audio not ipod ready, wifi spotty, kitchen appliances dated. Property would rate much higher with these corrections. 5/5 Rating - Hennessey 07/16/2013 This is a great house for large families! The house is well maintained, has plenty of beds, and has a great pool area. This was a great vacation house and we will definitely be renting there again! 4/5 Rating 08/21/2012 4/5 Rating - Tom& Lynn Mentus Wesley Chapel,N.C. 06/29/2012 We had a excellent time. Great way to spend our 25th anniversary. The house is convenient to the beach and downtown Corolla. The layout of the house suited our needs perfectly. The pool and hot tub were great. Look forward to going back. Loved the area. 4/5 Rating - Harrington family,Cornelius,nc 06/26/2012 Great place,worked great for a big family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can't beat the beauty of the beach in Corolla, it is worth the drive. Once we get on the island we immediately begin to relax and after settling-in we are in full vacation mode. The property is spacious and private. The WhaleHead community is safe and pleasant to walk or ride your bike around. It is easy to walk to and from the beach and the kids ride there bikes down to the shopping area, movie theater and mini golf.
