Thank you for viewing "Three Mermaids Cottage". We have created a comfortable, cozy cottage for all to enjoy.

This home is all about location location location! You can find us between the highways in Nags Head, at MP 10.5. We are centrally located, close enough to walk or bike to most places. We are in a nice neighborhood with slow traffic.
The cottage is about two blocks from the beach, it's a short enjoyable walk on a non busy street with a direct beach access.

The grocery store (Food Lion) is located in a plaza a block away. To name a few, the plaza also contains a coffee shop, pizza shop, Chinese Food Restaurant, bank, and hair salon. Many gift shops, souvenir shops, art galleries, restaurants, etc. are located within walking distance.

The house itself is clean and cozy! We're a little bit shabby and a little bit chic! We are nicely decorated with soft colors of the sea, sand, and sky! There's no doubt you will know you are in a house that's close to the beach!

We have recently upgraded most of the house. We have installed a new HVAC system for your comfort. Modern, and up to date, it should offer zero problems.

The kitchen was recently remodeled (May 2015). You will find it clean, spacious, organized, and well equipped. We have added all new cabinets with soft close doors and drawers. Appliances include a new fridge, stove, microwave, and quiet dishwasher, all easy to clean with a slate finish. The countertops are quartz, and there's a nice roomy sink for washing large pots and pans. We have plenty of cups and glasses, dishes, bowls, pots, pans, utensils, and whatever else you would need to whip up a meal.

The main living area has travertine floors. Fresh paint, new furniture, lamps, art, and rugs, all done in beautiful shades, add to the beachy feel of our home. We have a flat screen TV, with blu ray player, and a movie selection. We also have free wi fi and free long distance calling from our house phone. For the adults, on those days where it may not be the best beach day, we have books, puzzles, games, such as "Apples to Apples" , dominos, Yahtzee, CLR, Uno and regular decks of cards.

You can enjoy a family breakfast in the sunny nook, (table with 6 chairs) and listen to the local beach report, or beach music from the new radio/stereo, it also has an auxiliary cord for your ipod or smartphone. We have modern amenities, but we retain the charm of a beach cottage.

You can have your morning coffee on the east facing deck with recently purchased outdoor furniture, (table and 6 chairs) pillows, umbrella, and colorful flower pots.

The first floor bath contains a tub with shower. It has new paint, and some new fixtures. It has a ceramic tile floor, and is tastefully decorated.

The first floor bedroom has a queen bed with new mattress. It's freshly painted with new carpeting, vintage furniture, and new bedding. This bedroom has a nice sized closet. It has a ceiling fan, and flat screen TV.

The second floor bath, is a Jack and Jill bath. It has a new step in ceramic tiled shower. It has a ceramic tile floor, and new vanity and fixtures.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed with new pillow top mattress. It's newly painted with new carpeting. It has a ceiling fan and vintage furniture. You'll find a flat screen TV there, and a DVD player. It has access to the Jack and Jill bath. A small sitting room is attached, which contains a large closet. A comfy chaise is waiting, perfect for curling up with a good book!

The third bedroom contains a set of bunk beds with new bedding. It is also freshly painted with new carpeting. It has a normal size closet and a large dresser with plenty of drawer space. The kids will enjoy a flat screen TV and DVD player in here. If you have a little one, we have a baby gate and a small pack and play. This bedroom also accesses the Jack and Jill bathroom.

The balcony nook is another spot in which to relax. There you can unwind in a relaxing chair or sit at the "Honeymoon set", it's a nice spot to play a game, or if you need a quiet space for some computer time.

The house has a dry entry, for those occasional rainy days, and mud room with laundry area. We have a standard washer and dryer. The closet in the mud room contains beach items for our guests. We have beach chairs, an umbrella, sand grabber, boogie boards, corn hole game, bocce ball, horse shoes, some sand toys, and a wagon if you care to walk to the beach and take a few things.
Outside you will find a covered picnic table, park style charcoal grill, and some Adirondack chairs, where you can relax in the shade after a day in the sun. There is an outside shower with dressing space, plenty of hooks for your wet things and a clothes line.

After renting for many years, we have tried to make this house, your (and our) home away from home. We have put a lot of thought and care into making it a nice, clean, safe environment for everyone. After all, it's about family and friends, spending time together with the ones you love, and making memories that last a lifetime!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We ***WERE*** new owners! What an adventure this has been!! Originally we hail from SW Pennsylvania, but we have been drawn to the coast since we were both young. As a child my parents always took my family to vacation at the shore. My husband has been coming to the coast since his high school days. We fell in love with the peacefulness and charm of the Outer Banks 28 years ago. It reminded us of a quaint beach town from years past. We breathe easier knowing it will never be overrun with high rise buildings, and neon signs. We have been vacationing here with our three daughters for those 28 years. It has become a family tradition for us. Now it is time to expand, and share this tradition with our new grandbabies. We have created many memories here throughout the years. We have tried to teach our daughters about the importance of the conservation of the coastal areas, from the preservation of the wild horses, to the salvation of the sea turtles. We now hope to educate our grandchildren to respect this planet and it's creatures for future generations to enjoy. We hope to create new memories with our family and friends, and hope that you will do the same.

Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
We love this area of Nags Head, it has that quiet, neighborhood feel. The location is perfect. It's two blocks to the beach, and one block to the grocery store. It's close to the Nags Head bike path, and we enjoy riding our bikes as often as we can. There is a beach rental shop a mile north of us for anyone interested in renting bikes, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, or anything you would need. My husband can enjoy fishing from the shore, or from the Nags Head Pier which is a mile south. He can golf at the many golf courses in the area. I can walk to the galleries and quaint shops. Sea Green Gallery is a favorite, along with Something Fishy , The Christmas Mouse, and Gulf Stream Gifts. Gallery Row is also a few blocks away. There are some very good restaurants that are within walking distance also, one of our favorites is the Red Drum Tap House. Tortugas Lie is located nearby, and Lucky 12 Sports Bar is 1.5 miles away. A coffee shop is right up the street offering flavored coffees, cappuccinos, and pastries. Everything is within close proximity but it doesn't feel crowded. Directly across the street is a wooded area allowing privacy and not giving you the feeling of 'living in a fish bowl'. Honestly, the location can't be beat, no busy highways to cross, no traffic to fight. You wouldn't have to move your car once parked. Take time to walk around the neighborhood, and enjoy all that Nags Head has to offer!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We think the house itself is unique. The minute we walked in, we saw the potential. I knew with hard work and determination we could turn this house into a charming, cozy, comfortable space. We love the salt box style. The openness of the main floor, with the vaulted ceiling and balcony, gave the home style and character. We also love the fact that it has areas that offer a tranquil setting, the breakfast nook, the balcony area, and the sitting room in the master bedroom. The house is bright and open, and truly has the beach cottage feel. We have done a significant amount of work to the cottage and hope to update something every year. Three Mermaids Cottage also has a Facebook page, like us on Facebook and see the transformation, many before and after pictures are listed there.
