About the property

Mermaid's Tale Is Our 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home With A Hot Tub And A Community Pool

Mermaid's Tale welcomes you to her adventure by the sea! We are directly across the street from beach access to the amazing white sand Ocean Isle Beach and also across the street from the Summer Place HOA pool. We have 4 comfy bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There are two 2nd floor bedrooms which have private baths with showers and 2 main floor bedrooms that share a large Jack and Jill bath with a tub/shower combo. The large vaulted central living room/kitchen/dining has plenty of space for your family or group to cook, dine and relax together. We recently renovated the kitchen with a fresh white and turquoise color scheme, new quartz island counter top, and new appliances. We replaced all the carpeting and bedroom flooring. There is a 42" TV in the living room, visible from the kitchen and dining areas. There is also house wide WIFI access. The covered front porch has a peaceful ocean view and plenty of shade for morning coffee and lazy afternoons. The fenced backyard is an awesome place to chill in the shade or relax in the hot tub after a rousing day at the beach or pool. We absolutely love our home and Ocean Isle Beach for its relaxed and casual beauty and we know you will too!

About Jean and Steve Wolfe

We recently relocated to Ocean Isle Beach, NC from St. Paul, MN and are loving it. We have always been avid boaters with a deep love of the outdoors and especially the beach. When the opportunity arose to come to OIB, we jumped at the chance to live near the ocean. We have 2 daughters in college and an empty nest, so we decided to fill our extra time with buying a beach house and making it our own. We have spent the past 6 months renovating our house and turning it into "Mermaid's Tale". We are excited to share it with you!

Jean and Steve Wolfe purchased this house in 2015

Why Jean and Steve Wolfe chose Ocean Isle Beach

Our family was initially drawn to Ocean Isle Beach because of the call from the ocean after living in the Midwest our whole lives. So, when we started researching the properties on the Island, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to be right across the street from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Not to mention when you want to get away form the salt and sand, we are also directly across from our local community pool. With the kids not living at home anymore, we had plenty of time to renovate Mermaid's Tale and turn it into our dream ocean side home. In addition, an ideal vacation rental with its four bedrooms and three full baths for plenty of privacy and comfort. Vacation groups and families will also enjoy the combined kitchen-dining-living space for games, relaxing, and group meals. Although Mermaid's tale is a rental, we hope you will be able to feel at home and as comfortable as we do when staying here in OIB!

What makes this house unique

The ocean view at Mermaid's Tale and the sound of crashing waves through open windows or from the porch are what initially drew us here. The open floor plan perfectly fits the way we live and entertain. I still pinch myself every time I walk across the street for my beach walk!

The Mermaid’s Tale was a perfect getaway. We had an absolute blast. Steve and Jean thought of everything. The twinkling lights in the backyard provided a perfect spot for our children to complete their performances they had worked on all day. It will always be a beautiful memory. Thank you!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a lovely weekend getaway in Mermaid's Tale. The weather was chilly but the house was cozy and relaxing. Super comfortable beds too! We enjoyed walks on the beach (which is incredibly close to the house), dinner at Pelican's Perch, and coffee/breakfast at Drift. The hot tub, bikes, and front porch swing were all great hits. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

My family and I recently stayed at Mermaid's Tale and were blown away by the beautiful beach home! We were there for my Grandson's 21st Birthday and just wanted to relax and be together and this was the perfect place! The décor was amazing and everything that was needed was provided from bath to kitchen. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room to enjoy our mini-vacation. Very close to the beach and very convenient to grocery stores and restaurants. We will definitely stay here again soon! Thanks for the use of your home!

Car: recommended

Having Just moved to OIB, our family has taken part in many locals activities recently. We particularly enjoy taking the short walk to the beach to swim, tan, read, or walk. There are plenty of fun shells to find as well as a large beach to set up the umbrella and chairs provided. If your feeling adventurous you many also rent our two stand up paddle boards for use on the ocean or the intercostal water way. The island has side walks on the main roads to take the bikes out on for a nice ride, or to explore the west or east ends of OIB. A fun event that goes on here every Friday night is a island get-together just one mile from the house. It features a band, food, and fun for the whole family. The other days of the week can be filled with relaxation, trips to the local restaurants and fresh seafood spots, mini golf, go carting or one of the other many activities found here.
