Description

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 TV, video library, adult/kids books or various board games.

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

This is our place to recharge our batteries, catch up on reading and other personal projects, enjoy the pool, walk the dog through the local scenery, enjoy the beach, of course, and deal with whatever Mother Nature brings - this year the weather was mostly very warm and beautiful; Tropical Storm Isaias arrived a couple of days after we were back home. Definitely looking forward to next summer's visit!

the location was great, we would've booked again for next year however the smell of mold in the basement and the first floor - the floor with the bedrooms - was so awful i honestly think i was ill from it the second day. also, it must be the structure of the house, but you can feel the house moving. especially when you are in the bedrooms and someone is walking upstairs, the house kind of sways. the house was not super clean, both bathrooms had hair in the shower upon arrival.

We had an awesome time! We've stayed at Whale Watch West many times and it never disappoints. The view of the ocean from the dining table or the deck ensured a relaxing meal or beverage. The pool was a perfect break from the beach. We were a very easy distance to all our favorite restaurants and activities at the Currituck Lighthouse, Corolla Light, and Timbuck II.

A Great Vacation!

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!
Donald,
Thank you so much for your review! The homeowner has put forth a lot of effort to improve your stay as well as other visitors that come to WHALE WATCH WEST! We will be sure to pass along your nice thoughts to the owner as well as the couple of items you mentioned so they can be addressed in the near future.
We hope to see you again in 2018!

Our second full day in the house the A/C went out upstairs and the temperature inside the house reached 90 degrees. The next day 96 degrees inside the house. The HVAC tech said the unit was way too inefficient for the home and made it sound like the owners had been putting off having it replaced for a while. Rental company finally agreed to move us out of the house after we made several phone calls (A/C was out in the upstairs of that home too! That's another story) Very frustrating "vacation". The house needs a lot of updating and work. The gutter on the main deck was partially broken off and was lying on the floor of the deck. Water damage stains on the carpet in one of the bedrooms. The two smaller deck railings felt very loose and unsafe.I'm not the type to write negative reviews but I would never suggest this home to anyone!
Dear Leigh Ann,
We sincerely apologize for the HVAC issues you had to deal with. The unseasonable temperatures took their toll on many a/c units on the beach during the same week.
We have already shared your concerns with the homeowner who is addressing them already.

We arrived after dark and took approx 20 min drivng around looking for the house based on the directions we received. The directions were old, and told us to turn onto a street that no longered existed. This didn't seem to be a big deal until Monday morning when the constructions crews starting working before 8am on the former street that was becoming a walk way. The best weekday morning was when major thunderstorms hit the area around 6am and delayed the workers start till 10. For 20 years I have gladly driven past VA Beach to enjoy the peace and quiet of Corolla. This year seemed like a wasted 2 hours each way. The house was fine, but getting older. The pictures are deceiving due to the volleyball/horseshoe area now being a driveway.

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.

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.

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.

Clean house, great location

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.

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

loved it!!!

As I told Paula the house was cleaned better than all of the 30 years we have been renting. We enjoyed every second.

We love this home. It's perfect for us!

Perfect. We love this home. It has everything we need and want...1/2 block to the ocean, a private pool, we can take our beloved yellow lab Cooper with us. We'll be back in September for 2 weeks!
