Lovely Home/Amazing Owners
"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."

"This house is great! Owner is excellent to work with and everything was just as advertised. Our family had a fantastic week in Nags Head. Used the club and shuttle, they are great. We enjoyed the beach, not too crowded at all. Plenty to do in the area, we couldn't take everything in this trip so we want to return and will stay again at this property. Can't emphasize enough how clean this house is kept with everything in working order. Great stay, would recommend if you are looking for a great place in Nags Head."

"We stayed here for a week with a small group of family and friends then more came in Thursday and Friday for a wedding on Friday evening. They had no qualms with us having a couple of dinners at the house for the whole group and the Days Inn next door (which manages the property) even let us park our overflow there. Another word about the Days Inn, having them next door as the go to made issues that pop up so EASY. Our wi-fi was acting up one morning and someone was right over to look at it. (turned out to be a problem with the DSL that was resolved before the guy got there) On our second to last morning one of the coffee pots died. I walked over, reported it, walked back went to my room for something and came out to being told "Someone just brought over a coffee pot." That's service!
The house itself... Just look at the pictures. Every room was great. The master suite was fantastic. No neighbors. NO NEIGHBORS!!!! I had to find a place completely online from Phoenix, AZ so I looked at pictures, satellite imagery, reviews... anything I could get my hands on. Almost every place I looked at for this size, with these amenities and in this price range were all right on top of one another. This place has NO NEIGHBORS! And the public access next door wasn't a problem at all either. I had visions of John Candy eating breakfast in the movie Summer Rental with everyone looking in and asking to use his bathroom but we had nary a problem all week.
I don't know when we will be back to the Outer Banks or with how many people but if the needs and circumstance ever are the same we would stay here again in a heartbeat!"

"Our multigenerational family of 8 adults and three children spent a wonderful week in this lovely home, for the third year in a row. We love Duck and Duck King Inn. Easy walk to the beach or to town. Nice pool and spacious outdoor area! Sitting on the deck at night star gazing a must. Well cared for and beautifully decorated home, very comfortable for all of us. Owners pleasant to work with!"
