This was maybe the BEST beach house we've ever rented! It looks like it was recently built or renovated. Even the beach chairs were nice.

Questions & Answers


Question:

Interested in renting June 2-9, 2018- when will the rates be available? Don't mind paying the $50 reservation fee but want to know how much the week will be.

Answer:

Excellent question, Katie! Rates for 2018 will be available by the fall. In the meantime, you can use the comparable 2017 rates (listed on the 2017 Availability Calendar) as a ballpark estimate for 2018.

Question:

Do you have any additional reviews or feedback on this home?

Answer:

The home changed owners in September of 2016. The following reviews were submitted by guests earlier in 2016. ---5 stars, Sherrie 9/10/16: This home is perfect! It is cozy, welcoming and the location is perfect. The home is well maintained and even the lawn care and surrounding landscaping makes the home very appealing. The pool, decks and furnishing are the best for a casual and "at home" experience. We love this property! ---5 stars, Natalie 9/3/16 ---5 stars, Deborah and Dean, 8/27/16: We enjoyed this homes location and being able to bring our dogs with us. This is a great house for a family or a few couples. Everything you need is there and the extra yard area is perfect for the pets and for outside play. We enjoyed the covered hot tub and the pool. The expansive deck area is wonderful. ---5 stars, Christine 8/13/16 ---4.5 stars, William 8/20/16: Loved the pool. ---5 stars, Alex 7/30/16: Whale of a Time is a beautiful home that my family has enjoyed for many years. We look forward all year to our time at Whale of a Time. ---5 stars, Shari 7/23/16: A Whale of the Time was absolutely fabulous. Short walk to the beach and such an inviting pool and hot tub area. We loved the whale theming down to themed glasses and note pads. The house was so clean and perfect for our group of 8. The kitchen was stocked with everything a cook like me needed to cook and eat in for the week. The ocean views were great and we were pleasantly surprised that the beach access had a lifeguard. ---5 stars, Maria 7/16/16 ---5 stars, Nyle 6/18/16: Loved the house, pool, and hot tub. ---5 stars, Virginia 6/11/16: I love this house! It is beautiful decorated, and just the right size for our family of 5 adults and 2 children. A big plus is location, location, location! We are only a short walk to the beach! The price we paid, the distance to the beach and the amenities make this a perfect place for our vacation every year! ---4.5 stars, Chad 5/14/16 ---5 stars, Sandra 5/7/16
