"We loved this house. Super clean, kitchen was very well stocked. Easy walk to the beach even with little kids. The pool and yard are great too. We appreciated the wagon and extra beach chairs. Only complaint is one of the beds is in bad shape and should be replaced. Otherwise it was a perfect vacation home that we will consider for future OBX trips!"

"This is a great home that met all of our needs. It was very clean. We have stayed at many homes at the OBX and this one had the best equipped kitchen of all. It is about a 5-minute walk to the beach. If you need to take a wagon with beach supplies, be aware that it has 20 steps in a gradual climb to the top of the access and 20 steps down to the beach. We had a super time in this home!"

"We have stayed at this home for 5 years. Unfortunately, the home was not as clean or well-maintained as prior years."

"This was our 2nd year renting A Whale of a Time. Congrats to the new owners! We enjoyed the addition of the cornhole boards and tiki toss game in the 2nd level. The house has a great set up, and beautiful views from the top deck. Is is an easy walk or bike ride to the beach access, even easier with the included beach wagon! The pool is a great size and so welcoming after a day at the beach. The kitchen is well equipped for handling any meal, and the gas grill was great. We even were able to enjoy the fire pit this year for s’mores! The house is showing a few signs of aging that may need attention in the coming year. We had problems with the 3rd floor toilet that was promptly addressed by Twiddy. The couches are showing signs of aging as well. The only cable access is in the top living room and I believe the den, the other 2 bedrooms have streaming access. Overall is was a great vacation, and the weather couldn’t have been better!"

"Lovely, very clean house, wonderful vacation! Clean, good size pool and hot tub. We brought our own pillows and blankets as suggested (and dish towels/hot pads as well) just to be safer due to COVID, however the house was so well kept and updated, we didn’t feel the need to be overly concerned once there. We would easily stay here again and would like to thank the family who owns it for a terrific place to stay!"

"Beautiful home! Very well-maintained and clean. Would definitely recommend it to anyone!"

Heather   ·  8/8/2020

"This home was very clean and well maintained. The pool and hot tub areas were nice with afternoon shade and all the outdoor spaces on the decks were comfortable spots to hang out. The kitchen was well stocked and well organized and had everything we needed for our trip. The yard was a huge hit with our kids and the fire pit was a nice bonus as well. The walk to the beach was easy even or my toddler. Our only complaint was the king mattress and living room couches were a little uncomfortable, but you can tell this house is well cared for by its owners. We definitely recommend it!"

"Our family greatly enjoyed our time at the "Whale of a Time" home. We have four smaller children and house delivered on all our needs during our trip. Ample beach supplies helped during out trips to the sand, and the house is equipped with more than enough ways to rinse off and clean both humans and equipment upon return. The pool and hot tub were the kids' favorite activities and the adults enjoyed being able to watch them from any number of comfortable vantage points. We also enjoyed the massive decks that wrap around the ocean side of the house, providing wonderful places for morning coffee, evening drinks, or any time when we felt the urge to sit in the open air and have a view of the ocean. In summary, great house, everything conveniently situated and full of lovely surprises."
