  • An Oasis of Comfort & Accommodation

    "We just returned from spending Labor Day week in your lovely home. It is an oasis of comfort and accommodation. It is decorated so beautifully. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one could possibly need and it was easy to see that a large group of 12 could easily have a meal together. The master bedroom bed and linens were so comfortable my husband, who typically is an early riser, spent many mornings lingering in bed because he was so comfortable. I love the atmosphere of your home - it was beautiful, inviting, cozy, and warm. I appreciated the special touches, i.e., the framed cross-stitched lighthouse, the happy reminders of what a beach vacation is all about in the wall hangings, the lighthouse stools in the kitchen, and the adorable bedroom with the painted furniture. Sitting in the swinging chair or laying on the hammock became a daily activity after a day on the beach. This was our first time visiting the OBX and it was delightful. This home is located within short walking distance to a private, community beach. The owners have provided enough beach chairs for a large family, beach toys for children, and a beach wagon to assist in carrying whatever necessary to the beach. What a wonderful surprise to see that dogs are permitted on the beach. We are not dog owners but did enjoy watching them have fun in the ocean. Permitting dogs on the beach enhanced the family atmosphere of OBX. There are local shops, a grocery store and restaurants only a mile or so away. Recommend calling restaurants for reservations. Restaurants we enjoyed; Agave Roja (modern Mexican) excellent food and service, Buddhalicious (Thai inspired) Zen atmosphere with delicious food, Lighthouse Bagels (NOT your dense grocery store bagel - how do they make them so light and fabulously delicious?), and The Paper Canoe in Duck (poetry on a plate - exquisite food beautifully presented). Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We plan to return to the Lark Inn for our next OBX visit."

  • Hat's off to the owners!

    "Thank you for allowing us to rent your home. We also own a vacation property in the Northeast and realize the trust placed in the renters to treat the property as if it were their home. The property is lovely and well furnished. We did not expect the variety of recreational items, i.e. bikes, boogie boards, sand toys and games, that were in the house. The proximity to Buck Island amenities as well as the shopping center (Timbuck II) makes this an ideal location. The layout of the house was well suited for our family ranging in ages from the 70's to 2 years of age providing us all with privacy and comfort. The beach was amazing as we were surprised at the depth of the beach and overall cleanliness. Only downside was the property is listed as being "not" pet friendly but we had to remove dog hair from our clothing and children's blankets after sitting on the main floor couch. Several members of our family have allergy issues and we only rent properties that do not allow pets. Thankfully, no problems arose due to this issue. I would highly recommend Mermaids Retreat."
