"The house was perfect for a large family's beach vacation. With plenty of room for everyone to gather and eat family meals, we never felt cramped. The house is conveniently located adjacent to the public beach entrance and comes with a great pool and hot tub."

"Wish You Were Here, is a great place. This is the second time we stayed here and after the first visit we were very happy that we no longer needed to spend time shopping for a house because we found the perfect place for us.
The Whalehead locating is excellent. Even when every house if filled there is still plenty of room on the beach. You are close to very good shopping and restaurants so you do not need to waste time traveling.
I have rented many times on the web ad this house is the most well equipped. There is enough cooking and serving ware to feed a large group and all of the appliances are very good and work great. House is well furnished and spotless when you arrive. Nik (property manager) is a good guy and easy to get a hold of (even though we only need him to get entrance to the property).
Pool and hot tub are a great addition and very welcome if you do not feel like going to the beach.
Owner is also very nice and great to deal with.
You will not go wrong renting this property. I look forward to returning next year."

"We have been going to OBX for past 8 years and we all agreed this past visit was the best one yet! The house was perfect and even better than I expected,It was our turn to pick the place this year for everyone so felt some pressure to get it right for 3 families.Everyone said to me in private great job picking the place!Its a perfect location to all the enjoyment Corolla has to offer and close to the beach.The pool was a huge hit with the kids as well as the adults just wanting to relax.The house was perfect for 3 families to stay(12 total people)we didnt even have to use the room downstairs much,the kids loved staying together in the bunk beds,the house has more room than the pictures show with awesome deck space.I highly recommend The Surf Song Inn and Leslie rentals and would love to return in 2016!"

"We stayed, with two other families, at Mermaid Tales this past August and our experience was fantastic. This home was beautiful, clean and well kept up and it was easy to see that the homeowners took great pride in their property. The owners were exceptionally attentive and readily available. A great example of this is that the Sunday after we arrived, we discovered that one of the king sized beds wasn't functioning properly (a sleep number bed). We contacted the owner and got an immediate response - the mattress needed to be replaced. Because it was a Sunday and delivery was not available, the owner and his wife drove 3 hours to Corolla to deliver and install a brand new mattress that evening. They could have waited until the following day for a delivery service, but went the extra mile (miles) to ensure that their renters were comfortable. We had an amazing stay at Mermaid Tales and wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again."
