Reviewer Comments:

we had a very nice time. The elevator really allowwed my elderly mother to move about easily. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. I wish I had had the pool heated. Found that the beach was a little bit of a walk, and could have used more towels, We wash every day.

This house was nearly perfect for our family. The elevator was especially useful for our older folks, as well as for luggage and groceries. The house was clean and beautifully decorated. Loved it!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our first time renting a house and staying in the Corolla area. We are hooked! Whale of a Time was perfect. A Sunday to Sunday rental can’t be beat and we appreciated being able to bring our dog. Also loved that linens were all provided. The house was clean and smelled fresh when we arrived at 4:00. The elevator was a nice convenience for unloading and getting everything to the upper floors. The kitchen was well stocked. It had everything we needed and more. The only downsides to the kitchen are the lack of a pantry to store food and no sprayer at the sink. Having two refrigerators was a nice plus! Plenty of room in all the bedrooms. Two of the 5 bedrooms had clocks. It would have been nice if the other 3 had them. The master bedroom (king) and the queen bedroom on the 2nd floor had VERY firm, actually HARD, mattresses. All the bunks and the second king room mattresses were much more comfortable. Plenty of bath towels for everyone. And very nice, plush towels at that. That was a nice surprise! The two bathrooms on the 2nd level were very slow to drain, so I reported that on my check out sheet. The house had plenty of beach chairs, toys, boogie boards and beach carts. It’s close to 2 of the walkways to the beach. Whalehead Beach is gorgeous, wide and we never found it crowded. We also went to the 4x4 beach several days. Plenty of books to read, movies to watch and games in the game closet. We enjoyed having family game nights. The pool got plenty of sun during the day, yet there were shady spots to move in to as the day went on. The whole Whalehead area is quiet, close to grocery stores, shopping and other food options. Carolina Shores was great to work with and we will definitely rent again!

Cottage had everything we needed for our stay even an elevator. Everything was clean and bright and we felt right at home. A little far from the beach but the public parking and walkway helped with that.

Reviewer Comments:

Three generations stayed at Whale of a Time over a two-week period. The house was extremely well equipped, both in the house and with beach equipment, pool items and games. We had some very minor issues with ants, the hot tub not working and a backed up toilet, however the management service were quick to respond and solve these issues. The pool was terrific, the younger grandkids loved it! The location to the stores was extremely convenient. The walk to the beach on "Sailfish Walkway" was lovely. Yet, with this convenience, we still had privacy at the house. Our family had the opportunity to see baby sea turtles make their way to the sea, saw dolphins swimming and it was a short ride to Corova, where we saw the wild ponies. We also went crabbing, which was terrific fun. Wonderful vacation home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful cottage! Our family had two folks recovering from knee and ankle surgeries and the elevator proved to be priceless! The young adults and teenagers spent many hours in the game room and everyone enjoyed the pool and hot tub! A lovely home and one we hope to visit again!
