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 relocated to Ocean Isle Beach, NC from St. Paul, MN and loved 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 had 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 spent the 6 months after we arrived 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!

Perfect Beach Stay!
Everything you need for a relaxing time near the beach.
Perfect beach cottage for a getaway!
We adored this home! It was well stocked with everything we needed for days at the beach and cooking fresh seafood in the evening! The front porch was wonderful and relaxing for morning coffee and the backyard was perfect for enjoying lazy evenings. The location itself is perfect; easy walk to the beach, close to the pool, and close enough to the restaurants on the main road. We would love to come back and will also highly recommend to friends and family!
LOVE Mermaid's Tale!
This was our second time staying at Mermaid's Tale, and once again, it did not disappoint! Our family loves coming to Ocean Isle and we feel right at home staying here. Everything is clean and comfortable. The house is well stocked with essential items for an amazing family vacation. My children ages 4 and 8 talked about Mermaid's Tale all year long after our last stay, so we knew there wasn't anywhere else we wanted to stay. Love that the beach access is directly across the street and everything we need is provided for us: chairs, toys, umbrella, towels, etc. Other highlights include the bikes, hot tub, pool next door, front porch (love the swing!), and beautiful art & decor everywhere. I could go on and on. It's truly a great place to stay! Thanks for opening your home up to us.
We had a great time at the house. It was super clean and ready when we got there..
Great time! House was really nice. Hot tub and pool are really cool features. Bikes games grill out back. They have it all!
We will be back!!
The owners have not skipped a beat and provide everything you could possibly need! The artwork and decorative touches make the stay so pleasant. We loved riding the bikes to and from Drift Coffee Shop each morning. With two little ones, it was nice to have beach access so close by. We will be back!
Such a great owner to rent with!
Steve and Jean were such a pleasure to rent with! Our stay was unfortunately cut very short by Hurricane Florence, but Steve kept in touch with us to stay on top of evacuation information and they voluntarily refunded us for the nights (5 of 7) that we had to miss.
The home was beautiful and perfectly accommodated 2 families with young children. We would definitely try to rent again!
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. 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 (in the summer) is an 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.
