Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our hosts were very accommodating. We were able to borrow their bikes and their beach chairs during our stay. The view was great. The ocean was just across the street. And the beach was one of the best in all of the Outerbanks.

Management response:

Rich, Thank you so much for the great review. It was our pleasure to have you as our guest and look forward to seeing you again.

Amy and I stayed at the Sand Dollar BB (Flip Flop Room) over the Labor Day weekend. We were pleasantly surprised on how comfortable the room/house was along with us having access to the rest of the house including the pool and hot tub. We would like to thank Margaret and Randy, our wonderful hosts, for opening the Sand Dollar to us and providing us such a wonderful breakfast. I highly recommend staying at the Sand Dollar during your next trip to OBX.

Thank you Randy and Margaret!

About the neighbourhood
Corolla is a very family oriented area. It is mostly made up of single family homes with a few condos or townhouses. Whalehead Beach is comprised of three streets of single family homes. The majority of the homes are large single family homes that rent to family groups only. Some are 'event' homes with many bedrooms for large reunions, weddings, etc. there are two major grocery store chains here, numerous restaurants (no chain restaurants),several delis, coffee shops, bakeries, a bagel shop, seafood markets, pizza shops, and lots of interesting and unique shops. In addition there is the charming Village of Corolla and the beautiful Whalehead Club park where you will find a beautiful setting on the sound, tours of the historic Whaleclub, a wildlife museum and for those who like t... more

How to get there
Airport: Norfolk: 154.0 km
It is approximately a 1 hour and 56 minute drive (depending on traffic) from the Norfolk Airport to Whalehead Beach. The actual distance is 95.4 miles to our house according to the i-phone map. The drive from 64 is on 168 to 158 to the intersection of 12 north. It is through the North Carolina countryside and several small town areas. Along the way you will find a number of fruit markets and several restaurants. If you are coming on a Saturday or Sunday you will experience a lot of traffic as those are the changeover days for most vacationers not only on the Outer Banks vacationers but those from Virginia Beach and Williamsburg as well. My suggestion is that you travel early or late on either of those days during the high tourist season.
