Whalehead Watch is the perfect house for a smaller group! It is very comfortable with all the amenities one could ask for. The pool is beautiful and the dune top deck has easy access to the beach. Our family keeps coming back to this home. The updates to the house our absolutely beautiful!

This was the 10th time renting Whalehead Watch. Love the new floors, furniture & the windows where the fireplace used to be. Location is still excellent. We had a beautiful week- swam in the pool, used the hot tub. Love sitting on the decks for happy hour. A great week for October.

We have been vacationing in OBX for 14 years-this year we had 4 adults and 4 kids (10-8-6-2). We've been looking for a home with everything we needed that was on one floor. When we checked in the home was ready for us and the beds were made. The home had everything anyone would need for their vacation and more. The kids loved the pool. The beach chairs, sand toys, bikes, and body boards that were available were unexpected and great for the kids. Beds were comfortable and having the kids all on the same floor was a bonus. The deck furniture and pool furniture were comfortable and there was plenty for everyone. The outside showers, and especially the outside toilet, were used everyday as was the hot tub. There were special little touches that we loved-the kids gate and just the fact that there were laundry baskets in the closets (a nice touch). There were plenty of games and puzzles for the rainy day. This is definitely for us the best rental we've had in OBX that met all our needs.

Is there a port-a-crib or crib available?
Laurie, baby equipment is not provided for any of our vacation homes. Baby item safety requirements and recalls constantly change and many become obsolete after just one vacation season. For these reasons, Twiddy and our homeowners removed baby items from homes. If you prefer not to bring your own, there are several great companies in the area to rent baby items and a number of other fun vacation items like bikes, surfboards, beach equipment, etc. We recommend: Moneysworth Equipment Rentals - www.rentitobx.com 1-800-833-5233; Ocean Atlantic Rentals - www.oceanatlanticrentals.com 1-800-635-9559; Just for the Beach - www.justforthebeach.com 1-866-629-7368

When are rates for the next year usually posted? Also would it be possible to have the pool heated a week earlier than posted?
Ashley, the 2014 rates are in the process of being confirmed by our owners at this time, and will be posted on our web site as they come in. You can find this year's rates in the "Previous 2013 Rates" tab on the home's availability page. We are not able to open and heat the pools early in the spring; those dates reflect the earliest practical time to expect the heaters to be able to function efficiently!
