"Whalers Inn was wonderful! Walking distance to the beach. Great pool/hot tub area and open concept top floor living area. The beds were very comfortable. Our two pups had the best week swimming in the ocean and relaxing on the porches!"
"Really lovely home. Absolutely loved the screened in porch upstairs and the setting. That being said, the house is a bit smaller than I anticipated with only one true primary suite, and the actual primary suite was a bit crowded with no usable closet place. Also the lighting above the dining room table so dim that it was non existent and the hot tub is in need of replacement. I would recommend this home for a large family. As far as the character of the house and the location it was wonderful"
"Large pool area, screened in porch, whale watching loft to name just a few of the great spaces"
"The owners are definitely making updates to the home. It is a nice home in a great location."
"The home was improved greatly since our last stay there. The owners took many of our suggestions from the previous year(s) and that's why we stayed there. Great location and you can't beat OBX"
"The home was lovely. It had the nicest pool area of any house we have stayed at."
"Very well stocked with appliances"
"perfect size, loved all the decks. Great area to walk and easy walk to the beach"
"Nice layout, , hot tub , close to beach"
"I loved everything about our home the hot tub was the spot we loved"
"The layout of the home was great. The beds were comfy, tho a few more extra blankets wld have been appreciated. The kitchen had everything we needed. The only bummer was the inability of the pool to be ready. We are from Central Ohio and an outdoor heated pool in 50-60 degree weather wld have been used all week by my kids. They were chest deep in the ocean when it was 48 degrees 🤣"
"The home was beautifully decorated and well maintained. The house was clean and fairly comfortable except for the sofas in the living room making it difficult to relax while watching TV after a long day at the beach. If it weren’t for that, I would rate the house a 5. My favorite part of our stay was the pool! Thanks for allowing us to vacation at your beautiful house!"
"We truly enjoyed this house. Although one of the smaller houses in Whalehead it easily slept 8 of us - great for a family + a friend for each child. Everything you need in a beach house -- a short walk to the beach and a refreshing pool to come back to after a day at the beach. The owner has definitely responded to prior reviews -- the screened porched was fixed while we were there and it was evident they purchased new pans and knives. Plenty of decks and a hot tub to enjoy while looking at the stars. We will back next year!!"
"Other reviews are correct-the house is worn. Carpet torn, walls dirty, shower rods lose etc. Would I stay here again? Yes. The price is right and the location is great. Just of note to help out others-no beach towels so bring your own. Frying pans are terrible. I’d being at least one of your own to cook with and a nice sharp knife. All the boogie boards are broken so bring your own. Even though the weather has been a little cold the pool warms up quick. Twiddy was available with any issues though it did take a couple days for them to respond. Anything you need from them just call the first day. The outdoor pool area is a great hang out. It was spacious enough for 6-8 people and anything that is dog friendly is a +. Beach is less than a 5 minute walk."
Thank you for the feedback! A dog chewed the carpet and I'm having trouble getting someone in to repair it. This will be taken care of. I have ordered new frying pans and knives. I hope to be able to access the house in the fall and continue with home improvements to the bathrooms.
"The home is beautifully decorated with a beach theme, with lots of windows and deck space. We had 7 adults and a baby and it was comfortable. The kitchen looks very new and was nice for cooking. Beautiful views of the sunrise from the second floor great room and deck! We liked that there was a side screened in porch but the screen needs repaired. We also liked the little upstairs nook for seating. There were lots of games to play which we just didn’t use but would have on a rainy day. The pool was very nice and it was great to have a gas and charcoal grill. There was just about everything you would need for a day at the beach including some boogie boards, beach chairs and balls for basketball in the pool. We hope to be back again!"
"The home location is great with easy access to the walkway to the ocean. The home needs some exterior cleaning and sprucing up for guests especially around the pool and hot tub area. The interior is very nice and beachy with some updates throughout, but still needs additional updates. The kitchen needs some new pots and pans as well as silverware. Overall the rating of the home is a “3” on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the highest rating."
"We had a great week at Whalers Inn! Plenty of room for four people who all needed private space to work during the week; the wifi could have been a bit stronger, but had we been actually vacation and not working from the house, we wouldn't have even noticed. Very close to the beach and gorgeous inside. The furniture/beds were comfortable. We didn't use the pool but the hot tub was great and perfect for cool nights in March."
"Very quaint home! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The screened in porch was wonderful and relaxing to sit on. The bedrooms were spacious and beds were all very comfortable. The house had great amenities and we look forward to returning in the near future!"
"Home wasn’t bad for an older smaller home, which is what we wanted, a few suggestions, gates for the decks, outdoor elevator, drafty sliding glass door in living room, otherwise wasn’t bad at all!"
"We have stayed at this home a few times and it is a great home. It could use some updates but what house doesn’t? It’s a quick walk to the beach. The pool is great with lots of stuff to use. Plenty of seating for those rainy/cold days and the upper nook provides great views. We will definitely stay again!"
"Thank You to the homeowners we had a Great time and Loved the house we will be back again next year keep up the good work!!"
"It was a very nice home but the screen room really needs the screens redone they are all ripped and torn which I have left feedback on already otherwise it was a very nice place to stay"
"Decorating is very beachy and nice. Old home that needs repairs. Broken toilets and screens in the porch. Bathrooms need a lot of updating especially master bath. Refrigerator is very small. No blender or utensils for charcoal grill. Large decks are great. Pool and hot tub are nice. There is a beach cart and pack in play available which we were not aware of."
"We loved Whalers Inn, close to the beach, pool was wonderful. Didn't have to go out to do much of anything but get food. Home was equipped with everything we needed. A lot of relaxation. Had a great vacation. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home."
