  • Great Place to Stay and Great Hosts

    "This was our first time to OBX, and it will definitely not be our last time. The owner was super nice, and very accommodating. Everything we needed was at the house. It was clean, and smelled nice too. There were two adults and 2 children, and there was plenty of space and rooms for other people if our party would have been larger. The sectional fit our group, but I don't think any more than us to sit on the couch, but with all the TV's in the house, you could watch TV somewhere else (we were too busy enjoying the weather and the short walk to the beach to watch anything). The grocery store and other shopping was really close and convenient. The pool and hot tub were both very clean. Great working washer and dryer, dishwasher, all the kitchen tools you needed including a crockpot, pots and pans, baking utensils, strainers, a blender, and everything you could need. There was great water pressure in the showers, and the water got nice and hot. There was a working computer that was connected to the internet, which would be great for older folks who don't know how to use wifi or if your device is lost/charging. There were quite a bit of steps and the kitchen and dining area are on the third floor, so I would probably discourage anyone with problems going up stairs from renting, only because it would be a lot of work to go all the way up stairs for dinner. However, it really isn't that bad, and there are so many ways to get in and out of the house that it was always easy to yell down to the kids to come up for dinner. The house was also stacked with current DVDs and a great selection of games (we played Apples to Apples). There was also some fun mini golfing, and a small arcade/go-cart track nearby if we wanted to go out at night. We would definitely come back to this house, and it was a really great price too. Thanks for having us!"

  • 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."

  • Amazing beach house

    "Anna's beach retreat was a delight! The house was so roomy and comfortably fit our whole group. It was stocked with balls to play out in the backyard or on the beach. Along with having multiple TV's in common spaces it had TV's in some of the rooms. It had plenty of storage space in the kitchen, as well as coming with all the kitchen appliances you could ever need. The pool and hot tub were a delight, and even had a plug out there so you could plug in speakers to play music. It was great how the porch connected all three stories, so we could walk out onto the porch from our bathrooms and go straight to the pool. The top level back porch was also screened in, so it prevented bugs from getting in. The front porches were also great, with a hammock and chairs for reading. The house was stocked with a great selection of DVD's and games for a rainy day. There were multiple A/C units, so you could adjust the temperature for different parts of the house. There was a great outdoor shower as well to wash sand off before getting in the pool. Sharon was so kind, attentive and quick to pick up my calls about anything. Lastly, it had what is paramount to every good beach house, a super short walk to the beach. It was great staying here and we had everything we needed for an awesome week. I would recommend Anna's Beach Retreat to anyone that asked! And the owners are amazing!!!!"

  • Beautiful Home, Close to Beach Walkway, Volleyball Court, 5 min to Currituck Light House

    "I took my AP Biology class (11 teenagers) and 6 adults for an Ecology Trip. The house was absolutely perfect!!!!! We had very close public access to the beach. Everyone loved the pool and hot tub and had the best time on the volleyball court which was a unique amenity among beach homes. Wonderful to have private bath rooms for everyone. Very affordable price for the space and amenities that are included. Beautiful and impressive home!! Home Owner (Tom) is wonderful to work with. We were very grateful for the certificates for fresh bagels and donuts!!!!"
