  • Robert and Denise Mechanicsville, VA

    "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."

  • Was a nice home, but needs some work

    "The house keeping leaves nothing to be desired. After cleaning and changing sheets when we got there, there are a few things that need updated king mattress, pillows, pool table and cover that fits the hot tub. But we did have fun there and there was more room than the photos give it credit for, was nicely decorated, and kids loved the bunk beds against wall on second floor, the 1 st floor bunk beds need a ladder."

  • Wonderful OBX Vacation

    "This was our 4th time at this house & once again a great time was had by all! Since our last visit the kitchen was upgraded, a new hot tub was purchased, a swing was added to the front deck,a new ping pong table was added to the game room and bunk beds were added to the a third floor bedroom. We didn't realize the the bedroom had been changed to bunks and that is the reason I deducted a star. We had 2 adults sleeping in that room and it was a bit uncomfortable for them. We just love this home for the many reasons. The pool is spacious for large crowds. Your whole group can enjoy it at the same time. There is plenty of outside furniture and the hot tub is a plus w/ a cover that is easy to remove. The game room is perfect w/ a pool table & ping pong table and sm counter and frig. The only thing the game room needs is a sink. There is plenty of seating in the kitchen and living room and the house is so roomy that you can have privacy if you want it and be together for movies and games when you want that too.This house is perfect for large groups,family reunions and wonderful beach memories."

  • OMG!!! It was perfect!!

    "I rented this fantastic home so that my extended family could celebrate the many "holidays" that occur during the month of May. Our vacation started on Mothers' Day and was soon followed by my mom's 74th birthday. My parents' 50th anniversary and my father's birthday are May 22nd and May 25th respectively. Our group included family members from Georgia, NC (Goldsboro), DC and Maryland. I arrived with my mother, my 92-year-old grandmother, and two 2.5-year-olds (grandniece and granddaughter). My father, uncle, 3 brothers, sister, sister-in-law, 3 additional nieces and a nephew (all pre-teen), and an older family friend arrived later in the week. The house was perfect for our group. Each bedroom having a private bath was awesome! The amenities were great, from the pool table to the hammock on the deck to the big-screen TVs. The hot tub, pool and grills were all given proper workouts. The stairs and the mini-sized grills were a little challenging - but any complaints were tempered by the excellence of everything else. Having two refrigerators was extremely helpful. Getting to the beach from the house was a short walk and well worth it. The nearby shopping options came in very handy considering our frequent trips. I will (and already have) recommend this property and Elan Vacations to everyone I know. Thank you so much for the role you played in making wonderful memories for my family."
