Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this lovely home as 4 couples reuniting from graduate school from Yale. We wanted to celebrate the new year together and we enjoyed lovely walks on the beach and tons of laughter together. This home is a breath of fresh air and is lovely in the winter and in the summer. Look forward to coming back.

The Whale Tale is a fantastic beach house it has everything you need or want. The fenced in side yard gave us peace of mind with our 3 small children. The beach is beautiful and gets groomed weekly in the summer. It has about 3 miles of sand to walk along and find great shells. They allow rafts so my kids stayed in the water all day and then we came home and BBQ at night. Enjoyed the from porch in the evenings when the kids went to sleep. This was an amazing vacation and the Whale's Tale is now my number one favorite beach home!

A real home away from home

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely PERFECT getaway! No need to bring a thing with you! Just move right in to this charming, relaxing and immaculate home. The owner is available for any questions and is a perfect host. Just a short half of block from the private beach. Watch your kids run in the sand while you relax. I cannot say more things about it other than we can't wait to go back!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca is fantastic. She is excellent about communication she wants you to enjoy your stay and has gone out of her way to make sure everything is perfect. I highly recommend calling her to stay in her home or the other two she also owns. Communication made our stay perfect she helped with our needs and made great suggestions. This home worked out much better than staying in a hotel. We look forward to retuning again.

Beautiful and relaxing beach house

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this wonderful home and now can not wait to return. The home is exceptionally clean and decorated lovely. The owner is a realtor besides a designer so I am hoping to have her find me a home eventually in the area when we are ready to buy.

Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

The Whales Tale is a wonderful beach home. We were 2 adults, 3 teen girls and 2 boy cousins in the house. We were a bit worried about the 1.5 baths but it was really no problem at all. The full bath upstairs has a soaking tub besides full shower. half bath downstairs and a great outdoor shower. The owner has in each bedroom a dressing table so the Girls had additional space to Blow Dry Hair and Primp before going to the Beach! The house sits on open space between the neighbors so we Boys had room to toss a football while we were grilling.

Owner's Response: Marc I am so glad you and your entire family had fun and enjoyed the house. It actual lives much bigger than it looks from the outside. Having the great room and the family room does help. I thought you had a handful with all those kids but so glad it worked out and you had plenty of space. Hope to see you again soon. All the best Rebecca

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The Whales Tale is a bright and sun filled home with lovely furnishings. We spent as much time as possible on the beach but did use the house a lot since our little ones still need to take naps. Every room has its own a/c which is wonderful because you can turn on what you want and off in other spaces so the temperature is just right:) There is enough space to hang out in without disturbing others. It was very relaxing and very much enjoyed vacation!!!

Owner's Response: Your little ones are adorable and seemed to be champion sleepers! I am happy you all enjoyed the house and beds. With spending the day at the beach in the fresh air I usually sleep well too. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Rebecca
