Ocean Sands House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

This charming family cottage is located in Section A of popular Ocean Sands. It is built on a high dune with panoramic views of the ocean (just 89 yards away) and natural landscape to the south. Mermaid Manor has a bright and cheerful beach themed decor providing a welcome respite after a day in the sun and sand.

Welcome to the perfect spot for an old fashioned family vacation. This home provides a collection of entertainment items for every member of the family; games, toys, books, movies for those rainy days or quiet evenings and volleyball, basketball, horseshoes and bikes for the sunny afternoons. There are amenities for the little ones, too. A play area under the cottage (out of the sun) includes swings, a kiddy car and lots of sand toys. Items like the library of books, DVD's and videos, the sippy cups or the pads of paper and pencils for the Pictionary, UNO cards, Scrabble, Charades or other games will show you just how well thought out the amenities are.

Now for the real reason you come to the Outer Banks, THE BEACH. Mermaid Manor is literally steps to the sandy beach and sparkling ocean. You'll find beach chairs, blankets, and umbrella, toys AND a beach cart to tow them and your cooler of snacks to the beach. Ocean Sands South has wooden walkways over the dune making the traverse easy for older folks and little ones.

After a day in the sun, your entire family will enjoy the great room on the third floor with views of the remarkable landscape and lots of comfortable seating. The kitchen is large enough for multiple cooks and equipped to enhance the best grandmother or gourmet cook. You can steam crabs, roast the bluefish you caught on the beach or a turkey from the supermarket, mix a stew for the crock pot to cook while you are at the beach, or bake bread or goodies. Two coffee pots serve the caffeine and decaf or even a pot of tea hot at the right time. Here again the owners have taken care to provide the little extras like a spice rack, extra dishes, serving pieces and small appliance (even a stand up mixer) that will make you want to return year after year. Ample seating at the dinning room table is ideal for the family meal whether it's home cooked or take-out. There is also a half bath on the third floor for convenience.

The four bedrooms on the second floor are perfect for you and your extended family and/or friends. Two bedrooms have queen size beds and one has a full size crib, perfect for couples. Two bedrooms are child/teen friendly. One has two bunks (sleeps four children or teens comfortably). The other has a twin and a full/twin pyramid suitable for a young couple or three teens/children. All bedrooms have a cable TV with DVD or VCR player, extra pillows and blankets.

Mermaid Manor has a private well with excellent drinking water. The one half mile of vacant land to the south provides excellent views and a plethora of wild life including deer, rabbits and the occasional fox. Fill the bird feeder on the deck and enjoy visits from finches, mourning doves, cardinals and grackles. The spacious decks aren't just for sunning. Plan an evening with cocktails on the deck to watch the sunset over the sound for an early morning of coffee to watch the sunrise.

Reviewer Comments:

It's always a delight. We've stayed there for the passed 13 years and 'always' find it clean and well appointed. It's not a big party house and we like that. The outside showers are very private and cannot be seen or heard from the road.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall it was a great experience. Promimity to the beach was great. The only negative that I encountered was all of the bugs and spider webs all over every entrance to the house. I expect a lot of bugs, but it appeared that the outside of the house had not been powerwashed all season.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know that your family did have a great memory making experience at "Mermaid Manor". Unfortunately the bugs and spiders are very prevalent this year all over the Outer Banks and are certainly not inviting at all to our guests coming into rental homes. Even though power washing outsides of our homes is done during the season, this does not prevent the bugs & spiders from coming back the very next day to spend their vacation with us. Please again join Kitty Hawk Rentals at "Mermaid Manor" for many vacations in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

This was the best place we have ever stayed. Close to grocery stores and shopping. Easy to get to attractions. Nice short walk to the beach. The house had everything we could have wanted and nice quality too. We made a last minute decision to bring our dogs and that was nice too. Great place. Would definitely want to stay there again.

Reviewer Comments:

The experience at Mermaid Manor went very well overall. We had a family of 5 with 3 kids stay at the house for the week. The house was in a great location very close to the beach. We very much enjoyed our stay. Only drawbacks is that there did seem to be a decent amount of pet hair on the floor from previous guests with pets. The furniture was a little worn as well. I would recommend a professional vacuuming and some new living room furniture.
