  • Fantastic Property in an Incredible Location

    "House had outstanding amenities that are perfectly suited for a fun and relaxing time in OBX. The location is absolutely ideal - near the beach and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and grocery store. Plenty of outdoor living space - great views - and a turnkey experience. I plan to be back again next year!"

  • Our home away from home!

    "Thank you Dennis and Julie for sharing your beautiful home with us again! "Wish you were here" is the perfect get away! The house is immaculate, comfortable, quiet and beautifully decorated! We had everything we needed, and enjoyed every minute of our stay! We truly felt at home with the soft sheets and towels, nice hot showers in pretty bathrooms, fully appointed kitchen with top notch appliances, and we made good use of the laundry washer and and dryer. The beach is VERY close and easy to get to via the nice walkways in the neighborhood. We enjoyed the sunrises, pelicans/other sea birds, collecting shells and just sitting and reading on the beach. We used the beach cart, umbrella, chairs and cooler provided at the house. The weather was mostly in the low 70s and one day it was 87 degrees. The beach is quiet and used by couples and families ....We were further spoiled by the wonderful heated pool and top deck, where we took pictures of the sunset over the sound, saw the light from Currituck Lighthouse in the evenings, and one night we watched a huge ship pass by on the ocean. Other fun stuff included trips to Sanctuary Vineyards, Manteo (Elizabethan Gardens and Full Moon Brewery for lunch), Cape Hatteras Lighthouse (saw the beach house from the movie, Nights in Rodanthe, along the way), shopping in Corolla and Duck, and seafood takeout from Steamers. We are repeat guests (stayed July 2011 and May 2015) and highly recommend "Wish you were here"!"

  • 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."

  • Terrapin Station

    "What a fantastic home! 9 bedrooms each with a bathroom. Primo beds and pillows. All new couches. Well stocked with games and DVDs. Tv's everywhere. Plenty of amenities. I highly recommend this vacation home. Short walk to the beach and located on a child friendly street. Loved the hot tub too!!!"
