Guest review November 2015: The Whale of a Time house was perfect for our family. The layout was great, and the big picture windows in the den gave us a wonderful view 24 hrs a day. We will be coming back.

Review: We had a great time & would definitely stay here again! One thing you may want to know prior to arriving, you have to walk through a bedroom to get to the bedroom with the double beds. It wasn’t a problem for us, but may be for some.

Review: 5 star. Wonderful access to beach.

Review: 5 star. Wonderful time! Lovely house! Close to town but out away from crowds! Views were amazing as one can see in the picture! We will return! A boardwalk over the dunes would be a great bonus to add!

Review: 5 star. A Whale of a Time was a wonderful house that provided our family with just what we needed. We had 5 generations with us - from a 97 year old great great grandmother to a 2 month old infant. The ramp on the back of the house was perfect to get the older generations to the beach, and the house layout was perfect for our needs. We would definitely book this house again.

Review: 5 star. Our family had a wonderful time. Kitchen was smaller than what we had last year, but it worked. Loved that the beach area was soooo private and away from the crowds. We would stay here again.

Review: 5 star. Man what a weird place - fun weird though - totally inconsistent decoration - they have an awesome Spongebob bathroom, some standard bedrooms, and the master is like this weird funky tacky 90's gilded wannabe fancy type thing. Great beach access. House was clean. I'd definitely, definitely return. Had 6 beds in 4 bedrooms, like 4 baths I think. Plenty of room for like 12 people. I'd have to reach to find any negatives - it was super fun, super funky, and super comfortable. I'd re-rent this place in an instant without any hesitation.
