Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Whales are known to teach, learn, cooperate and are involved in social conduct, emotions, judgment, and theory of mind. It is thought that only one hemisphere of the whale's brain sleeps at a time, so that they rest but are never completely asleep.

Rest, relax and rejuvenate at “Whale Watch West” and wrap yourselves with a warm, welcoming atmosphere and creative design. Awesome decks provide an advantage to choose whether to sunbathe or be “made in the shade”.

Positioned on a corner lot, only 450 feet to the beach, lovely juniper interiors, panoramic ocean views and four comfortable bedrooms will only add to your contentment.

Socialize, soak and soothe tense muscles in the 6 person hot tub before an evening of entertainment from your satellite TV, video library, adult/kids books or various board games.

This home is a perfect selection for 2 families and Fido too!

Reviewer Comments:

We have rented for 50 years on the Outer Banks. This experience was average in comparison to past rentals. Some minor and major improvements are needed. There are urine stains on the top floor and steps. The furniture is extremely dated. The overall cleanliness inside was almost below average. Coffee pot small and broken. Plumbing leaking under carport and house from bathrooms. Pool gate was dragging on hinges.

Reviewer Comments:

Our second full day in the house the A/C went out upstairs and the temperature inside the house reached 90 degrees. The next day 96 degrees inside the house. The HVAC tech said the unit was way too inefficient for the home and made it sound like the owners had been putting off having it replaced for a while. Rental company finally agreed to move us out of the house after we made several phone calls (A/C was out in the upstairs of that home too! That's another story) Very frustrating "vacation". The house needs a lot of updating and work. The gutter on the main deck was partially broken off and was lying on the floor of the deck. Water damage stains on the carpet in one of the bedrooms. The two smaller deck railings felt very loose and unsafe.I'm not the type to write negative reviews but I would never suggest this home to anyone!

Owner's Response: Dear Leigh Ann, We sincerely apologize for the HVAC issues you had to deal with. The unseasonable temperatures took their toll on many a/c units on the beach during the same week. We have already shared your concerns with the homeowner who is addressing them already.
