"Canterbury Whale" offers you and your family an oceanfront home in Whalehead that is close to shopping and dining. The private walkway makes getting to the beach a breeze. You can take a dip in the private pool after lounging on the sand, and soak in the hot tub when the sun goes down. There's nothing like the sound of waves and the smell of the ocean to carry your worries away!

"The home had a beautiful outside space with nice size pool and great outdoor area! Private walkway to beach and amazing ocean views from the kitchen"

Rebecca   ·  Stayed August 2022

"Love the size of the home and the oceanfront view is amazing"

Joy and Jon   ·  Stayed August 2022

"A comfortable, cozy home right on the beach where the small details made the stay even better! Everyone had a place to be alone or with the group. Just the right size for our little family and the beach was uncrowded and felt private."

Kristen   ·  Stayed August 2022

"We loved our time spent at the Canterbury Whale! The home was the perfect size for our family of 6 and the kids favorite hangout was definitely the loft! The home had everything we needed to be comfortable cooking/grilling with plenty of serving platters and even plastic dishes/cups for our toddlers. The deck was new and we loved splitting time between the pool and the beach. The lifeguards are close by and the beach never disappoints. As always, Twiddy was responsive to any concern that we had. Next year’s trip is already booked and we can’t wait to go back!"

"Our vacation was relaxing and full of beach time thanks to Canterbury Whale which is nestled in the sand dunes of Corolla NC. The private access to the beach was so convenient. We enjoyed our coffee up on the deck perched over the dunes while watching the sunrise. The pool was perfect for those who were not comfortable swimming with the fishes. Bedding and mattresses were very comfortable. The decor was charming and cozy. We had a rainy day and would have enjoyed a bigger smart tv to catch up on our Netflix. We all said we’d love to return to Canterbury Whale."

"Really nice house for a family of four. Was Just Perfect. Well equipped. The only thing we would change - and this is very minor - is to add an umbrella to the pool area table. But I get it - that would be tough to keep in place during sudden storms. Would definitely stay here again."

"This is the perfect beach home for 2-4 people. It is perfectly situated with both sunrise and sunset viewing areas. Easy walk or bike distance to everything. We enjoyed our time here immensely."

Eileen   ·  Stayed July 2021

"While the location and size for my family was absolutely perfect, the house could definitely use a little TLC. the decking was splintering in some places and could use some work. The carpets were worn and dirty and in need of replacement. The kitchen and dining area were very nice but the cabinets needed a little organization and the dishwasher did not clean the upper rack. also, the racks on the door of the refrigerator were broken, limiting storage. We did enjoy the loft and beach set-up service. We would love to rent this again because our family is small, however, I am hesitant to do so because of the above."

Unfortunately the decking was scheduled for replacement last winter but lumber supply postponed it for this Fall. We organize the cabinets at the beginning of the season, but many guests reorganize them on arrival and the cleaners don't change cabinet arrangement. Please report any appliance malfunctions, carpet cleaning needs or other issues to Twiddy as soon as they're discovered. They will generally take care of them within the day. Thanks for the review and we hope to see you again next year
