Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a most enjoyable stay at Mermaid Cottage in July 2010. Mermaid Cottage is one of, if not the most comfortable, rental home we have vacationed in. Well maintained, clean and fitted with everything you could need for an enjoyable vacation. It's a short walk to the beach, a short drive to shopping. We enjoyed the swimming pool every afternoon of our stay. We enjoyed watching the sunrise over the ocean from the upstairs deck, and sunsets over the preserved area viewed from the main deck. We took time to see the Wild Horses of Corolla and the Corolla Light. We ate a lot of great sea food and spent time at Kitty Hawk to see what the Wright brothers had done. We plan to return to Mermaid Cottage.

We are a retired military couple and have traveled the world. Now we call the VA Peninsula home which allows to be hands on home owners. We would like to share the Outer Banks with everyone.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

We love the Outer Banks. The development is limited by size and codes making for a uncrowded and relaxing place with pristine beaches. We loved seeing the wild mustangs. They roamed this area when we first came down. Now for their own safety, they have been moved to the 4 wheel drive area which is North of Corolla. You make take tours to go see them.

There is nothing like the beach to relax and the Outer Banks has some of the best beaches on the East Coast.

You will see the brown pelcians flying in a row, going North for fishing (we think). They ride the wind draft coming off the dunes. We have counted a group of 32.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION.

  • 4 of 5
Mermaid Cottage is a wonderful location to enjoy a family OBX vacation. It is very close to the beach and convenient to shopping and restaurants. I was surprised at how busy the last week of August was for beach visitors when we arrived to the OBX area but Mermaid Cottage is located in a private community with no public access beside of large natural area so our part of the beach was not crowded and it is a very short walk from the cottage to ocean. We walked to the beach at least 4 times a day. We really enjoyed the convenience of having our own private pool at the cottage. The house was comfortable and cool with a very nice deck on the back and screened deck on the side.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at the "Mermaid Cottage". Was so nice having the beach close as well as Harris Teeter grocery store. The cottage met all our needs and was perfect for our family. Loved all the deck space as well as the pool area. Having all the beach amenities such as chairs, coolers etc. already at the house was a huge benefit as well, We look forward to another great vacation in the OBX next year.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (total of 9, ages ranging from 48 to 11) stayed at the Mermaid Cottage from June 22-29. This was our first visit to the OBX area and first time renting a house. One word to describe the house....FANTASTIC!!!! It is such a wonderful place to stay and I highly recommend it. We all loved the spacious rooms, the cleanliness, the pool, and the welcoming feeling you receive when you walk in the door. It was our home away from home! The kitchen has any utensil/appliance that you could possibly need, it was nice to make breakfast and a few family dinners. The only thing you need to supply for the beach is a towel or blanket, we could not believe the nice chairs, umbrellas, toys, etc. that were available for our use. It is only a few minute walk and you are on the beach. The upstairs bedroom may get a little warm but if you keep the curtain closed during the day, it will be fine, I have no complaints about that. Thank you to the owners for sharing your great beach house for other families to enjoy! It was a wonderful family vacation! The only complaint that we have is with our drive down, the traffic was horrible!

WONDERFUL BEACH COTTAGE!!!

  • 4 of 5
I recently stayed at the Mermaid's Cottage in Ocean Sands and LOVED IT. This was such a lovely home to spend the week at. The location is great and the home itself is very warm and welcoming. I think that the well stocked kitchen was one of my favorite parts of the house. The second story deck is perfect for watching the sunrise, the sunset and to watch the little deer that live in the undeveloped area behind the cottage. I found my stay at the Mermaids Cottage to be an absolute perfect vacation. Thank you to the owners for sharing your lovely beach home with me. My family looks forward to having the opportunity to visit Corolla again and would love to stay at the Mermaids Cottag again!!!!

EXCELLENT BEACH LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week here with my family and parents and we had an amazing week. This house is super close to the beach (even close enough for my 3 year old to walk the whole way), the kitchen is well equipped, and the numerous decks were wonderful. It's right next to open space, so the beach was never crowded. We used the pool a lot as well, and the outside shower was really convenient. This house is close to everything, and we drove up to Corolla to see the wild horses on the beach....which I highly recommend people do. We also got this house for a great price, and the owner was very helpful in our communications. The only thing that bothered me was that it got very hot in the upstairs master bedroom, so if you go, have someone stay in there that gets cold easily. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and if we weren't adding to the people staying with us next year, we would definitely go back.

We had a wonderful time at this House.Charming,quaint and warmer than many of the newer larger homes.Plenty of room for our family and guests.Great views.I was dubious of beach proximity but found it unbelievably close. 2 minutes was no exageration. Ideal location with store near as well.Well worth the money.We paid twice as much last year for a lesser property.Owner's personal touch and guidance was a welcome surprise! Probably the first rental that exceeded the description in all ways!
