Romantic Bungalow

The Tale of a Mermaid bungalow was even better than we expected! We were concerned that the pictures online would set us up for disappointment, but as soon as we were inside, all concerns vanished! The house was so comfortable and cozy, just right for a romantic anniversary get-away. The only negative is that the location is in the middle of Nags Head which is super commercialized. But, once inside the bungalow, none of that mattered! So, if you don't mind the hustle and bustle of Nags Head and you want the perfect, small and cozy rental, Tale of a Mermaid is ideal!

The Mermaid was a wonderful cottage @ Nags Head!! The owner has done a great job with this cozy 1953 cottage! Loved everything about it, the outside shower, the porch to have a drink and feel the ocean breeze, the artwork, short walk to the beach and being able to walk to one of our favorite restaurants, Tortugas Lie.
It was a great girls week for two cousins! WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thanks Cindy!

Tale of a mermaid was perfect for our 20th anniversary getaway. 4days wasn't long enough but staying at the house was SO much nicer than an run of the mill hotel room. The inside porch was perfect for evenings and the beach is just a walk across the street. Coming back from the beach, the outside shower helped get us cleaned up before going back inside. We used the provided grill and cooked a few meals in the kitchen. Everything we needed to feel comfortable was available and the owners answered our questions quickly and with courtesy. I genuinely hope we can return again!
