  • 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."

  • Wonderful place to stay in Rodanthe!

    "First time visitors to OBX & not being familiar with the area, we took a chance on Rodanthe & the condo "Goin' to Carolina". We couldn't have selected a more perfect spot for our vacation! Condo was comfortable, tastefully decorated in a relaxed beach theme (think sand & surf: muted, calm colors!) & met our biggest requirement: clean, Clean, CLEAN! Kitchen was well equipped but we only ate breakfast in & went out for early dining each evening so we wouldn't miss spectacular sunsets. Loved hearing the waves, lying in bed at night & 1st thing upon waking each morning. We traveled all the way south to Ocracoke Island & as far north as Currituck Sound. Highlights include: ferry trip to Ocracoke where we dined at Howard's Pub & Raw Bar for the BEST, freshest seafood; visiting all the lighthouses & Wright Brothers Memorial/museum was interesting & informative; we enjoyed delectable, all-you-can-eat crab legs at Captain George's in KDH; watching kite surfers in the evening behind Kitty Hawk Kites in Rodanthe; glorious sunsets over the sound; the beach, shells, looking for sea glass (didn't find any this trip!); relaxing and letting the cares of work & other responsibilities drift away with the ebb tide; and oh yes!! Heavenly, hot, just baked cinnamon rolls one morning from the neighbors at Sea Treasures/Ocean Gourmet - order in advance if you want a dozen! 😉 Friday night, we had an incredible meal at Basnight's Lone Cedar - highly recommend this place for the view, fresh salad & herbs grown in their very own garden outside the restaurant & again, freshest of the fresh seafood! David (the condo owner) was so easy to work with, answered questions prior to booking & called after we arrived to be sure everything at the condo met our expectations (which it did & then some!). We were convenient to anything we wanted to do but far enough away from crowds & the whole "tourist" scene, which is exactly what we wanted/needed for this vacation. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to family & friends and should we ever return to the Outer Banks, would certainly hope we'd be fortunate enough to stay in Goin' to Carolina again. Thanks so much for an incredibly awesome place to call 'home' in Rodanthe! Lynn & Becky Yarbrough Clermont, GA"

  • Perfect for families

    "This was the perfect place for our family of 9 adults and 5 children. We all had plenty of room to gather together or be alone. Everything was comfortable. All kitchen supplies needed for our stay were provided. The pool was perfect along with the closeness to the beach. It was far enough away from major traffic to feel comfortable, but close enough to most attractions to be able to sightsee. The owner was sure to accommodate for children, adding a gift of a kite. The manager was very accommodating and friendly. She was sure to take care of any minor issues as soon as they arose. Loved, loved our stay here. Hope to return!"
