"The condo was great and Kevin took care of minor problems from afar. The place was quiet, comfy and had everything you needed in appliances and home items. The owner gave great directions and his helpful hints to sights and restaurants great. The beach was a short walk and wonderful. Weather was very kind to us. Grandchildren didn't want to leave beach and upon coming back then wouldn't leave pool right below us. Sight was greatly kept and people friendly and helpful. Definitely take a wild mustang tour, see Wright Brothers Memorial and delight in Duck Donuts. I am very happy I found this place and thank Kevin and his Wife for providing a wondrous vacation."

"We loved this condo. It looks nice in the photos, but was much nicer in reality. It was absolutely spotless, appliances were new or like-new, and the kitchen was very well stocked. The rooms and closets were spacious, there was plenty of natural light, and a nice deck to boot. The DVD library had a nice collection of children's movies, which were nice to have on rainy afternoons/evenings. Since we were there in the off-season and the pool was not yet open, it was very quiet. I'm not sure how different that would be during peak season. The only (minor) inconvenience was the lack of a cutting board. But otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay here!
Oh, and Jacqueline was also great about giving us recommendations for what to do with young children if it was too cold to go in the water (which it was)!"

"When we pulled up to the property, we more more than excited. When we left, we were more than satisfied with our stay. Alan made the process easy and was a truly great communicator. Any questions we had, he was sure to be attentive and helpful. The location was great! The beach is a quick three minute walk, as is Harris Teeter and Duck Donuts! Although the pool was closed for our visit, we still utilized the area for grilling, playing corn hole (we brought) and listening to music. All in all after a week, each of the 14 in the group now calls this getaway our second home."

"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!"
