"I want to start by saying the owner John was not only informative, he answered inquiries immediately and was extremely helpful and a great communicator. That is very reassuring when traveling to an area you are not familiar with and finding out ahead of time what to expect. THANK YOU JOHN! One of my biggest concerns is that the home is extremely clean. It was. The other concern is that it is located in a safe area. It was. The rest was a bonus.
The view was spectacular. The privacy was just what I wanted for this trip. There are a mass of beautiful homes in the Outerbanks, most of which are located in subdivisions (not appealing where I am concerned). John's home was warm and inviting, very private and very perfect for our particular needs. The name Isolation fits it to a tee.
A couple of my family members joined us for a few days and loved the house and location as well.
I read a couple of other review and someone mentioned that the carpets were stained. When we arrived everything was cleaned and since it's a rental you have to expect the carpets can have an occasional stain since they cannot be steamed cleaned after every visitor. Being a germaphobe myself, the condition of the carpets did not bother me in the least. They were well vacuumed and the house IS ON THE BEACH! There wasn't a bug in sight inside the home. I wish all the VRBO rentals we've occupied were as clean. The cupboards were immaculate and so was the refrigerator, oven and microwave as well as the bathroom facilities and bedding.
Yes, I would definitely love to return to Isolation. Thank you again, John for being so kind and helpful."

"Perfect getaway for our family! The place was immaculate upon arrival and the owner is absolutely wonderful to deal with. He even called a couple of days after our arrival to make sure that everything was ok. It was the perfect size for the 5 of us. The high spacious ceilings with skylights make the house sunny and bright. Nice sized kitchen and not only a front deck but back porch with screens, a wet bar, and icemaker so that you can enjoy the evenings outside. It is only a short walk to the beach and the outdoor shower was great after a long day at the beach. Whenever we come to the OBX, this is where we will always stay!"

"We stayed, with two other families, at Mermaid Tales this past August and our experience was fantastic. This home was beautiful, clean and well kept up and it was easy to see that the homeowners took great pride in their property. The owners were exceptionally attentive and readily available. A great example of this is that the Sunday after we arrived, we discovered that one of the king sized beds wasn't functioning properly (a sleep number bed). We contacted the owner and got an immediate response - the mattress needed to be replaced. Because it was a Sunday and delivery was not available, the owner and his wife drove 3 hours to Corolla to deliver and install a brand new mattress that evening. They could have waited until the following day for a delivery service, but went the extra mile (miles) to ensure that their renters were comfortable. We had an amazing stay at Mermaid Tales and wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again."

"My family just returned from our first trip to the Outer Banks, where we stayed at the Perfect Catch. We truly could not have asked for a better place to stay! The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. There were so many extras that are too many to name--beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie board, games, books, even a stool that my daughter could use to reach the sink to brush her teeth! The view was spectacular, the beach and pool were both uncrowded. The condo is also very well located, close to shopping, dining and other activities, but the location was still very quiet and peaceful. We would recommend The Perfect Catch to anyone and we will definitely stay here again!"
