ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year staying here. As before, the cottage was perfect and Cindy is the best. I would highly recommend this property to everyone. Location is awesome-right across from the ocean and the pier and within walking distance of several great restaurants and mini-golf. Tortugas Lie is one of our favorite restaurants, and we were pleased to see that the pier has added more outdoor seating on the ocean and improved their menu. It's just perfect. The outdoor shower is the best, we have plans to install one at our own house for use in the summer time. Already made reservations for next year and we are extending our stay. Can't wait to come back. Looking forward to this little gem makes Michigan winters a little more bearable. We check the live pier cam on a regular basis when we get homesick for Nags Head and Tale of a Mermaid! Thank you, Cindy!

MERRY MERMAID

  • 4 of 5
The cottage is clean, modern, intimate and perfectly located for the beach (literally a two to three minute walk).

The owner was in touch with us and we appreciated that.

The linens are not included, which is a detail I had not picked up on. we went to Walmart (open 24 hours) and picked up everything we needed.

We went to several mini golf places and to restaurants that were really good in the area. (Jolly Roger, Blue Moon, Tortuga's Lie. I was not impressed with the Pier Restaurant, which is across the street, and would not recommend it.

We went to see the Lost Colony play in Roanoke in an outdoortheatre, which we quite enjoyed.

I would absolutely recommend this property to any friend or relative.

We loved our stay in Nag's Head NC (Outer Banks).

GREAT HOUSE - AWESOME VACATION!!

  • 5 of 5
Great cottage for a couple or small family!! This is 2nd time we've been here and love what Cindy has done with this little house! We hope to make this an annual tradition while the kids are small! Very clean, close to the beach, and overall a nice place to stay in Nags Head! Love the outdoor shower and screen porch! Our 4 year old loves the "little green house" as she calls it...especially the mermaids & "her" pink bedroom! Will be back!

PERFECT BEACH COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
If your looking for a place to stay at the beach this is perfect! We instantly feel in love with it the moment we arrived. The sunroom was great to relax on, beach access right across the street, outside shower and convenient to shops, coffee and restaurants. We can't wait to return next year. You won't regret booking this house. The owner is great and is very attentive to your needs. The tale of the mermaid is the ultimate beach cottage! Thanks Cindy!
