What a wonderful week at a beautiful home. We had 6 adults and 6 children (5-10 years old) and had plenty of room. House was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and then some. Plenty of activities close and/or within the home to cover any rainy day. Wonderful pool, clean and well maintained. Everything was in good working condition. We even made it through a hurricane Arthur, a very unusual event this early in the season but it was non eventful, slept through it. Beautiful by noon the next day.
Getting to the beach was easy as wonderful walkway close to the house or a parking lot you could park in. Lifeguards were an added plus and were very good at watching situations.
Rodney ( owner) was very helpful and easy to work with, answering any question within 24hr or less.
We would definitely recommend "Mermaid Tales" for your next OBX stay.

House of Paradise

We can not tell you what a wonderful house this is. We had the most relaxing time just being in the house. Beautiful, quiet, peaceful grounds and the house put together as if for friends, not strangers. The owner has thought of our every need and comfort. The house, location, restaurants, beach and shopping were exactly what we wanted. Everything was so accessible. We couldn't have imagined anything better! Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Like Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing in Corolla for years and by far, this is the best house we have ever stayed in. It is easy to see that the owner wants to share their home with you. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed including a kitchen that had all the extras we needed to cook whatever we wanted. The pool is big and had all types of rafts and water chairs to relax in.... and relax we did! We had five of our adult kids with us and our granddaughter and if you have young children, it is like a kids paradise. Playhouses, carts, bikes, everything a child could want. Although it is a couple blocks from the beach, it was an easy walk to the access point and if you have a truck like us, you can fill the back with chairs and park in the public lot next to the access.
We had a wonderful week with our kids and would recommend this house to anyone!!
