Excellent beach location!
Excellent beach location!
We spent a week here with my family and parents and we had an amazing week. This house is super close to the beach (even close enough for my 3 year old to walk the whole way), the kitchen is well equipped, and the numerous decks were wonderful. It's right next to open space, so the beach was never crowded. We used the pool a lot as well, and the outside shower was really convenient. This house is close to everything, and we drove up to Corolla to see the wild horses on the beach....which I highly recommend people do. We also got this house for a great price, and the owner was very helpful in our communications. The only thing that bothered me was that it got very hot in the upstairs master bedroom, so if you go, have someone stay in there that gets cold easily. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and if we weren't adding to the people staying with us next year, we would definitely go back.

We had a wonderful time at this House.Charming,quaint and warmer than many of the newer larger homes.Plenty of room for our family and guests.Great views.I was dubious of beach proximity but found it unbelievably close. 2 minutes was no exageration. Ideal location with store near as well.Well worth the money.We paid twice as much last year for a lesser property.Owner's personal touch and guidance was a welcome surprise! Probably the first rental that exceeded the description in all ways!

We had a most enjoyable stay at Mermaid Cottage in July 2010. Mermaid Cottage is one of, if not the most comfortable, rental home we have vacationed in. Well maintained, clean and fitted with everything you could need for an enjoyable vacation. It's a short walk to the beach, a short drive to shopping. We enjoyed the swimming pool every afternoon of our stay. We enjoyed watching the sunrise over the ocean from the upstairs deck, and sunsets over the preserved area viewed from the main deck. We took time to see the Wild Horses of Corolla and the Corolla Light. We ate a lot of great sea food and spent time at Kitty Hawk to see what the Wright brothers had done. We plan to return to Mermaid Cottage.

About the owner: We are a retired military couple and have traveled the world. Now we call the VA Peninsula home which allows to be hands on home owners. We would like to share the Outer Banks with everyone.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Sands, Section F:
We love the Outer Banks. The development is limited by size and codes making for a uncrowded and relaxing place with pristine beaches. We loved seeing the wild mustangs. They roamed this area when we first came down. Now for their own safety, they have been moved to the 4 wheel drive area which is North of Corolla. You make take tours to go see them.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is nothing like the beach to relax and the Outer Banks has some of the best beaches on the East Coast. You will see the brown pelcians flying in a row, going North for fishing (we think). They ride the wind draft coming off the dunes. We have counted a group of 32.
