Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Whales are known to teach, learn, cooperate and are involved in social conduct, emotions, judgment, and theory of mind. It is thought that only one hemisphere of the whale's brain sleeps at a time, so that they rest but are never completely asleep.

Rest, relax and rejuvenate at “Whale Watch West” and wrap yourselves with a warm, welcoming atmosphere and creative design. Awesome decks provide an advantage to choose whether to sunbathe or be “made in the shade”.

Positioned on a corner lot, only 450 feet to the beach, lovely juniper interiors, panoramic ocean views and four comfortable bedrooms will only add to your contentment.

Socialize, soak and soothe tense muscles in the 6 person hot tub before an evening of entertainment from your satellite TV, video library, adult/kids books or various board games.

This home is a perfect selection for 2 families and Fido too!

Reviewer Comments:

My wife and I stayed at Whale Watch West from Sept 9th to the 17th. first off it is in a perfect location, steps from the boardwalk that leads to the beach! The property has a wonderful set up and an excellent pool and hot tub. Corolla at this time of year is wonderful. We were close to everything we wanted to do and see and didn't have to fight the tourist lines. When we arrived at the property we were able to tell that the owners are making improvements and updates to the property, they have replaced all the windows and are painting and siding the exterior and the A/C units looked new. I only have two critiques, first is that the property needed a solid day of landscaping, dead trees trimmed, bushes pruned, etc. Second is, and I know this could be very hard with all the in and out of renters, but the outside activity equipment could be organized better in the first floor closets. Other than these two minor issues my wife and I loved This property and can't wait to book again in the future! Thank you for an awesome vacation!

Beautiful views steps away from the Ocean. The pool and hot tub are wonderful to come back to. The house is Nicely formatted with 2 living rooms. I would suggest another tv for the second living area.

Reviewer Comments:

We have rented for 50 years on the Outer Banks. This experience was average in comparison to past rentals. Some minor and major improvements are needed. There are urine stains on the top floor and steps. The furniture is extremely dated. The overall cleanliness inside was almost below average. Coffee pot small and broken. Plumbing leaking under carport and house from bathrooms. Pool gate was dragging on hinges.
