Overview

About the property

Four bedroom, 3 1/2 bath beautifully decorated home near the beach

Fully renovated in 2013! Everything was replaced in this house from bathrooms and kitchen to furniture and bedding. All new flooring throughout. New washer and dryer and revamped laundry space. A spectacular wall mural of Corolla's famous wild horses will greet you on the second floor and remind you that these creatures used to use the carport for shelter! Great attention to detail went in to decorating all the rooms.

To all viewers of this site, my home is only available for rent on VRBO/HomeAway. It is not available on a third party site or Craigslist. You will only speak to me, the owner, when making inquires or bookings.

About Julie Harris

Thank you for your interest in our beach house. This house was built in 1989 by my Aunt, and was her pride and joy for over twenty years until she passed away in 2012. My Aunt wanted this house to stay in the family and be enjoyed for decades so she designated us as its new owners and caretakers. We gratefully accepted the honor.

Julie Harris purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie Harris chose Whalehead Beach

This property was completely renovated in 2013. A new kitchen, new bathrooms, an added 1/2 bath upstairs. Freshly painted inside and out. Master bedroom was redesigned to accommodate a king size bed. All the furniture and linens are new. All kitchenware is new, dishes, glasses, silverware, pots and pans. Everything is new!

What makes this house unique

This property is designed for one or two families. Family reunions will have to be for another day. With a straight walk to the beach on a walkway, it's very convenient to go back to the house to refill the cooler, jump in the pool, or find reprieve from the midday sun.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely spotless and very tastefully decorated. Owner has thought of nearly everything. Conveniently located beside the walkway to the beach. We'd like to keep this little treasure all to ourselves , but in all fairness to the owner, we loved it!!

Ideal OBX Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and son stayed here for a week in mid-September. The description of the cottage is very accurate, and - while cliche - "the pictures don't do it justice." Each room is tastefully decorated, and it's very clear that much time and effort went into their appearance. The two wrap-around porches are incredible - on of which has a portion that is screened in and is perfect for evenings or for when the weather is less than ideal. Being able to hear/smell the ocean was wonderful, and the fact that it was such a short walk away was even better.

My family of three obviously had more than enough room (our toddler loved the space), but we would absolutely consider coming back as part of a larger group. The living room is plenty big, but because of how the cottage is layed-out (e.g. bedrooms and porches on two different floors) - it'd be an ideal place for two families/groups of people to share a space, but also have their own sense of privacy.

Lastly, the cottage owner - Julie - could not have made our trip any more accommodating. We have used VRBO a handful of times, and she was far and away the most accessible and willing to help. We felt "at home" from the moment we arrived through the duration of our stay.

the home owner was great!

The house was in a perfect location for our needs.

The pool was perfect.

The beach was close.

All in all it was great! Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Perfect beach home

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible. It is well maintained, very clean, the kitchen is well stocked, there are plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas, the beds are comfortable, the pillows are nice - I could go on and on.

Our family has been vacationing in the Outer Banks for several generations and it was unanimous that this is the best house we have ever stayed in. I love the size, it's so hard to find a reasonably sized house and the proximity to the beach walkway is everything.

Julie was so wonderful, it was very easy to communicate with her and I felt like she genuinely cared about ensuring a wonderful time at her house.

If you find yourself still reading this review, I would stop immediately and book this house!
