"We had a great time in the Outer Banks and loved our vacation home. The only thing I would suggest is making the entertainment system a little more user friendly - we had to play around before we could get the tv to work, and never did figure out how to change the radio station or hook up an ipod. But that was a minor drawback and we still loved our stay!"

"A dozen college graduates in one big house ... needless to say, we had an amazing time! Alan was so helpful in the leasing process, which is usually difficult or impossible for vacation-goers under 25 years old. Not only was there plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, it was also perfectly located near all of our necessities. We went to Harris Teeter nearly daily (walking distance) and woke up every morning to stroll down to the beach. After spending the day there (beautiful, clean, peaceful), we grilled or went out to eat and then spent the evening in the backyard pool and hot tub! Karaoke night at the local bar was so much fun, and the cab is $15 flat rate. We had a fantastic post-graduation trip, but I could also see this being the perfect vacation for a big family."

"This house was beautiful and very roomy, everyone had their own space. Great location! The owner was great to deal with and extremely helpful and accommodating. This was our first time to the Outer Banks, but we will definitely be back."

"What a wonderful week at a beautiful home. We had 6 adults and 6 children (5-10 years old) and had plenty of room. House was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and then some. Plenty of activities close and/or within the home to cover any rainy day. Wonderful pool, clean and well maintained. Everything was in good working condition. We even made it through a hurricane Arthur, a very unusual event this early in the season but it was non eventful, slept through it. Beautiful by noon the next day.
Getting to the beach was easy as wonderful walkway close to the house or a parking lot you could park in. Lifeguards were an added plus and were very good at watching situations.
Rodney ( owner) was very helpful and easy to work with, answering any question within 24hr or less.
We would definitely recommend "Mermaid Tales" for your next OBX stay."
