Recent Whalehead Beach reviews

  • Awesome, awesome, awesome

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: .3 mile walk to the beach! can you go wrong! House was clean and well maintained, Fully stocked kitchen, TVs in almost every room, great Pool table game room, Pool was warm but so nice, hot tub was great too. Took my dogs to the beach every morning and they loved it. Best part was that the street the house is on is not transited much, so space to walk, and the house is surrounded by trees, so nights were nice and starry, and we could make noise and not bother anyone. One issue we had was with the middle AC unit, but the service was very very prompt, and issue was resolved within hours. There are fans in each room to keep the air moving as well. Barely any bugs to worry about, plenty of parking space, nice open floor plan inside, made the trip just wonderful. The rental gear that came with the property was great too, got 4 bikes and a trailer, just awesome."

  • Perfect for us!

    "Our party of 8 adults and 6 kids (ages 2-7) loved SmileAway! The pool was wonderful and well maintained. The house is beautifully decorated and well stocked. A highlight for us was the kids play equipment in the back yard. Our little ones LOVED it. The backyard is big and private. It was a little further from the beach than we were expecting (ocean views were not visible except for the very top deck and even them only a sliver), but it worked fine for us as we don't want to pay oceanfront prices. John was wonderful to work with and stayed in contact with me throughout the stay to check in, answer questions, and give us a heads up about pool guy coming, i.e. The location of the home is great and very close to stores and restaurants. Our group might be smaller next year; otherwise we would have already booked again! Wonderful family vacation spot!"

  • The Perfect Outer Banks Rental!

    "This house is everything it says and more! It was the perfect size for our family of 4 adults and one teenager, but could still fit more. The furniture was high quality and like new and everything was very clean and up to date. The mattresses were very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked and the perfect size for preparing meals and serving everyone. Again, all the appliances and pots and pans are like new. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, gas grill, outdoor shower, and bikes. Everything is well stocked for a day at the beach, such as a beach cart, umbrella, and chairs, along with a day at the pool with pool toys, noodles, poolside basketball net. The laundry room is clean and has a nice washer and dryer. Julie and Dennis have gone above and beyond to make their guests feel at home and provide you with everything you need and didn't even realize you needed, as well! They are also very nice to work with. Julie answered many questions I had before renting and called to check in on us during our stay, to see if everything was ok and if we needed anything. A very thoughtful gesture! Nik also answered any questions we had and although we didn't need anything during our week, I have no doubt it would have been addressed immediately. We don't have younger kids anymore, but I could appreciate the outlet covers, small highchair tucked in the corner that you didn't even realize was there and the 2 smaller sized bikes. They have thought of everything and that is a rare find. There aren't many rentals like this. The location to the beach is great and the neighborhood is quiet. The city of Duck is close by and has a nice waterfront boardwalk along the sound. There's a very nice park in Corolla on the sound where the lighthouse is located; great for watching the sunset and taking family pictures. And, don't pass up Duck Donuts! If you have any hesitations about renting here-don't! I am very picky and Wish You Were Here exceeded all my expectations and right now... I Wish I Was There!! It's like visiting a relative that only has you in mind. We will definitely be back to enjoy another fun and relaxing vacation!!"

  • A week at the China Whaler

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My inlaws and myself spent the last week of July at the China Whaler this year. We enjoyed our stay here. This was our forth year in the Whalehead community and this house fits our needs the best. We had enough room for everyone, and enjoyed the amenities this house provided. We were there on an incredibly hot and very humid week, so the pool was the best treat for us all! There is a very good chance that we will plan to stay at this house again in the future."
