Wonderful three generation experience!!!
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This beach house fullfilled it's description to a T! There were 14 of us . It had plenty of plates, silverware, glasses(tumblers, tall glasses,wine glasses) cooking utencils and pots and pans. Four plastic loungers and four chairs poolside could be increased for 16 occupants but we found it helpful to do the beach value rentals from your web site. Fortunately there were enough pancake flat pillows that we could double them up .The pool service was helpful in that we had a bit of a blow one night and one phone call to management was all that was needed. It was spotless and clean!!! The directions and hints from the office upon arrival were great! We enjoyed eating at the Sunset Grille and Raw Bar and The Black Pelican. Our family did a dolphin tour, Roanoke aquarium visit, jet sking and para sailing and our own 4 wheel drive wild horse tour. All that plus pool time and relaxing on the shore made this a memorable vacation . The grandchildren enjoyed night "crabbing" almost every night! A seafood boil provided by The Outer Banks Boil Co. was the grand finale --Matt was fantastic! We would send any one to this beach house for a great experience. PS-Don't know if your maintenance group follows through with the suggestions card but the black Mr. Coffee doesn't work (the white one does) and the out let at the island sink doesn't have power-Plenty of other outlets so no big deal. Again thank you for making one of the items on a grandparents' bucket list a great experience!!!!"

"This was our second stay at the Mermaid Cottage and by far my favorite place to rent in the OBX. The house was clean and maintains the original "beach cottage" feel that you rarely find among the larger "mansions" in these areas. As a small family with a toddler, it was so nice to be walking distance to the beach and have the convenience of a pool (which gets sunlight all day long). The owner provides plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, pool floaties and toys to keep us well stocked. The screened porch is a nice way to enjoy the beach air at night while staying safe from bugs and there is a large deck to warm up on in the morning with a cup of coffee. It was so easy to get to the grocery store, Duck Donuts, and plenty of shops, entertainment, and restaurants. I'm looking forward to staying here again and creating more great memories for my family. Thank you Dove for sharing your home with us!"

"Great ocean view…. Great time had sitting on the deck. Everything worked and was clean on arrival. Plenty of sand toys… good beach chairs.. very short walk to beach… boardwalk path and stairs to beach all new this week. Great time had by 3 kids aged 6 to 12 and mom and dad. One mile to Food Lion."
