  • 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"!"

  • Smileaway - The Perfect Family Getaway

    "My family and I had an incredible stay at Smileaway! The house comfortably accommodated three families for the week. We visited in late May and had wonderful weather all week (not too hot). The house was beautifully decorated, felt very homey, and was equipped with great appliances. The pool was a great spot to relax during the day, the beach was great for walks and was not too packed (and we saw dolphins!), stargazing on the top floor deck was spectacular, DirecTV and Netflix were great for family time at night, and the pool table was a fun family tradition during the evenings. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend, and will be returning to Smileaway in the future. Thanks for everything Smileaway :)!"

  • 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."

  • 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."
