Our house was amazing there was 6 of us we used the hot tub and pool all the time loved the decor of our house and th beach itself. The people at twiddy were very easy to work with and made my first obx vacation very enjoyable!!! I have zero complaints

- Melissa 8/24/2019

The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. I also love how all the “hang out” areas are connected.

- Christine 8/10/2019

This was our 3rd year at A Whale of a Time and we have loved every year! Family game night on the screened porch and making s’mores at the fire pit have become annual traditions. It feels like you are staying at a good friend’s house for vacation instead of a rental home.

- Katrina And Joel 8/3/2019

We stayed at Whale of a Time and it is a beautiful home. Perfect for a family of 5 or maybe 2 families of 4. The house has everything you need a beautiful and well kept pool, gas grill, hot tub, plenty of chairs around pool, beach toys and chairs for beach. This house was perfect and made for a wonderful week. The view from the top porch was awesome as well. I would really like to thank the owners for sharing with us. We will be staying at this house again some time in the future.

- Tim 7/27/2019

- Kristine 7/6/2019

This house was truly awesome. Everyone had plenty of space. The pool and yard were perfect. Toys and beach wagon were great! The small details make this house special and fun.

- Mary 6/29/2019

We love Whale of a Time. It has the perfect pool for our munchkins (5 & 7) with lots of pool toys. The house is well maintained and child safe. Its also just a short walk to the bach. Let's not forget the really nice fire pit, 2 grills and the adirondack chairs around the pit. Perfect for an outdoor evening.

- Nita 6/15/2019

Wonderful stay in the Outer Banks using Twiddy; friendly and accommodating. The house itself was wonderful! Clean and full of amenities. If you forgot to pack something from home, I'm sure this house has you covered...full kitchen, beach and pool toys, games, etc. Will certainly stay here again! Thank you!

- Daniel 6/8/2019

The "Whale of a Time" was the perfect, well-appointed vacation home. It had all the amenities we could ask for beautiful ocean views, great outdoor shower, in-ground pool, hot tub, grill and fire pit. The beach was just a short walk.

- Wanda 9/1/2018

- Rebecca 8/18/2018

- David 7/28/2018

Beautiful, well-appointed and in beautiful condition. Pool and hot tub were glorious. Extremely comfortable with a great view. Just loved it!

- Edward 7/21/2018

- Robyn 6/30/2018

The house was excellent. I think we've found "our" vacation house and have pre-reserved it for next year.

- Nita 6/16/2018

Very comfortable and first rate amenities provided. Well decorated too

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.

- Answered by Twiddy on 8/18/2017

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
