Whalhead Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Mother Earth Father Sky is the name of the first novel in Sue Harrison's Carver Trilogy and was chosen as among the best books, for young adults, by the American Library Association.

But this Mother Earth Father Sky is a spectacular oceanfront home with three lovely decks, four beautiful bedrooms (two of which are master suites), basketball goal, high speed internet and satellite television. Wish upon a shining star while relaxing your cares in the six person hot tub or the private swimming pool. You'll love the outstanding panoramic views from two floors of sparkling glass windows.

Let the worries of weekend traffic just melt away. Because Mother Earth Father Sky is a Friday to Friday rental allowing you to spend more time enjoying the beach and less time sitting in the car. Rover is a welcomed guest too!

Reviewer Comments:

The house is much smaller than it appears. You are buckle and dined for everything. If you want linens, that's an additional charge and they are dumped at the door. You have to put them on, etc. terrible I emaker and no trays to make your own. 4 chairs on deck for a house that sleeps 8+. Kitchen is a half step down, so major fall risk and the island is your table. Pool guy didn't come mid week, we had to add water to pool so the filter would not burn up. Cleaning toothbrush left in upstairs mirror. That was disgusting. Bed is very uncomfortable in upstairs queen that has the lounge chairs. We will not rent this again nor will we use this company.

Dissapointed in Vacation Rental

Reviewer Comments:

Great Area, Great Beach, but house was run down, needs updating, dirty kitchen pots and pans, has a very odd lay out. Also, the deck boards were sticking up and people were tripping over them, and the deck gate fell off, luckily no one was hurt. Carolina Shores was easy to work with and professional but they need to remove this rental, it is not up to par.

Reviewer Comments:

MEFS is exactly the kind of place we'd been looking for. Being a smaller family with a smaller budget and a dog makes it challenging to find a house that is oceanfront. This house is quirky and "cozy", and we loved it. Perhaps the best aspect is how much "stuff" has been provided and/or left behind. We could have packed 1/3 as much (pans, blankets, hand soap, games, etc). Can't wait to go back!

Reviewer Comments:

The pictures of this house are very misleading. There is no point of having an oceanfront house if you have to climb "jockey's ridge " to get to it. There are serious electrical problems. The front stove burner sparked several times when it worked. The upstairs outlet in the left master sparked. We left it unplugged, didn't feel safe having it plugged in. Several lamps don't work. Left master shower leaks water everywhere. This has been going on for sometime, the floor is rotted out. The pool was the nicest thing about this house. We have been coming to OBX for 20 years and this is the worse house we have ever stayed in. Very disappointed to spend that amount of money for oceanfront and have to walk 2 houses down to for the beach access. We would have spent less and still walked the same distance and had a better house.

Reviewer Comments:

As I said last year, it may not be the fanciest house on the beach, but it is a great little house with an excellent location! It needs a couple of updates but nothing that would make me stay away. The only thing I really wish it had was a walkway over the dune but the boardwalk is one house over so it was not bad - especially since we used a service to set up umbrellas and chairs each day. I am going back next year!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall pretty good but I never saw the wind blow so hard for so many days. It even blew out a couple screen panels which we replaced but maybe blew out again. It had a pretty good floor plan but the house needs some updating and could use a walkway to the beach instead of a dune path which is too hard for young kids and elderly folks. The pool and hot tub were nice. The view from the main floor was just of the dunes--couldn't see the beach. The deck had some boards and nails coming loose.
