About Jim and Cindy Levo

We have been drawn to the coast since we were both young. As a child my parents always took my family to vacation at the shore. My husband has been coming to the coast since his high school days. We fell in love with the peacefulness and charm of the Outer Banks 32 years ago. It reminded us of a quaint beach town from bygone years. We breathe easier knowing it will never be overrun with high rise buildings, and neon signs. We have been vacationing here with our three daughters for those 32 years. It has become a family tradition for us. Now it is time to expand, and share this tradition with our new grandbabies. We have created many memories here throughout the years. We have tried to teach our daughters about the importance of the conservation of the coast and ocean, from the preservation of the wild horses that roam the OBX, to the salvation of the sea turtles. We now hope to educate our grandchildren to respect this planet and it's creatures for future generations to enjoy. We hope to create new memories with our family and friends, and hope that you will do the same.

Jim and Cindy Levo purchased this house in 2014

Why Jim and Cindy Levo chose Nags Head

We love this area of Nags Head, it has that quiet, neighborhood feel. The location is perfect. It's two blocks to the beach, and one block to the grocery store. (Food Lion) It's close to the Nags Head bike path, and we enjoy riding our bikes as often as we can. There is a beach rental shop a mile north of us for anyone interested in renting bikes, kayaks, etc, anything you would need. My husband can enjoy fishing from the shore, or from the Nags Head Pier which is a mile south. He can golf at the many golf courses in the area. I can walk to the galleries and quaint shops. Sea Green Gallery is a favorite, along with Something Fishy , The Christmas Mouse, and Gulf Stream Gifts. Gallery Row is also a few blocks away. There are some very good restaurants that are within walking distance also, one of our favorites is the Red Drum Tap House. Tortugas Lie is located nearby, and Lucky 12 Sports Bar is 1.5 miles away. A coffee shop is right up the street offering flavored coffees, cappuccinos, and pastries. Everything is within close proximity but it doesn't feel crowded. Directly across the street is a wooded area allowing privacy and not giving you the feeling of 'living in a fish bowl'. Honestly, the location can't be beat, no busy highways to cross, no traffic to fight. You wouldn't have to move your car once parked. The new Dowdy Park is just two blocks away, there you will find a great playground for the kids, and enjoy family friendly events all summer long. Take time to walk around the neighborhood, and enjoy all that Nags Head has to offer!

What makes this house unique

We think the house itself is unique. The minute we walked in, we saw the potential. We knew with hard work and determination we could turn this house into a charming, cozy, comfortable space. We love the salt box style. The openness of the main floor, with the vaulted ceiling and balcony, gave the home style and character. We also love the fact that it has areas that offer a tranquil setting, the breakfast nook, the balcony area, and the sitting room in the master bedroom. The house is bright and open, and truly has the beach cottage feel. We have done a significant amount of work to the cottage and hope to update something every year. Three Mermaids Cottage also has a Facebook page, like us on Facebook and see the transformation, many before and after pictures are listed there.

Jim & Cindy's cottage is described as a tee on their site. Beautiful cottage with all the amenities that you could ask for and great proximity to the beach! Cindy checked in with us periodically to see if we needed anything. My wife and I highly recommend this home away from home!

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at 3 Mermaids Cottage. It's 2 blocks to the beach, and equal distance to a Food Lion and within a 5 min drive of anywhere you might want to go in Nags Head. The house is great with a nice layout and well stocked kitchen. Jim and Cindy even provide some beach toys if you don't bring your own. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Location, Beautifully decorated and Spotless

  • 5 of 5

The Three Mermaid Cottage is beautifully decorated, spotless and in a great location to restaurants and activities. The cottage is located about two blocks from the beach. The wagon, chairs and toys provided were greatly appreciated. Highly recommend the OBX water park. I have an 8 year old and a 2 year old and they had activities for every age group. We loved it. My family enjoyed their first trip to the Outer Banks, even though it rained most of the time. Cindy and Jim have everything you need at the house and we highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa! You are the first guest to mention the new H2OBX water park! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed it! Thanks for the compliments on the cottage, and great location also. We truly love it here! I'm sorry that the summer's only tropical storm hit while you were on vacation! :( Hope the games, puzzles, cards, & books kept you all occupied during the nasty weather! Thank you for choosing Three Mermaids Cottage and we hope you are able to return in the future!! Cindy
