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. After triathlon games at the volleyball court, horseshoes and basketball goal, reward yourselves with victory laps in the private pool.

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!

    a guest from Henrico, Virginia recommends this vacation rental

    Nice house and very convenient access to the beach. Only one issue. We had paid for an early check in and when I checked in around 1pm I was told that the house was not ready and they would call me. Around 1:30pm I went back and checked and it was still not ready. When I mentioned I paid for the early check-in, they said "Oh, here are your keys we cannot hold it any longer." You need to make sure the individuals check to see who has early entry. Anyway, overall it was a good vacation.

    Robin M from Stephens City, VA recommends this vacation rental

    The location of the house is perfect for morning and evening walks, and getting to the beach. The inside appears dated and there was ALOT of long, white pet hair all over the house. With a 1 yr old on the floor, this was a HUGE problem, not to mention every time you got ready to go out, you couldn't sit down on anything. The pool and hot tub are ideal, but there was a lot of foam in the hot tub when you turned on the jets. We cooked in every evening ... a few larger casserole/baking dishes would be helpful, and with 4 adults and 3 children, one fridge was not enough. We were keeping things cold in coolers and buying ice. I can't say I wouldn't stay here again, but I would hope for some improvements before hand.

    This house is our very favorite place to be in the summer! We've been renting this house for years and always look forward to coming back. Such a close walk to the beach. We bring our sweet Lab to join us to have fun in the sun!

    We've been renting this house for several years and make it a point to come twice during the summer. The property management team is excellent, very helpful and always on top of things. The house itself is perfectly situated to the beach and we love being able to bring our beloved Lab with us.

    This house was perfect for two families with kids. Very clean, nicely maintained pool and hot tub. And the location is fantastic - one street from the beach.

    a guest from N Versailles, PA recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first time renting a home in Corolla, and we were very pleased. The location to the beach was perfect, just a short walk away, and also very close to the Timbuk II plaza - just about a 5minute drive down the road.

    For being a pet-friendly home, the interior was overall in very good condition. We fit 5 adults, three children (under 11) and two small dogs very comfortably.

    My only slight complaint would be that there were several lighbulbs burnt-out, and the pool and hot tub didn't appear to have been vacummed before we arrived, as there was sand in both.

    Other than those two minor issues, we had an excellent stay in this property and would definitely recommend it!
