I HAVE BEEN SCAMMED on Craigslist !!! My cottage is NOT for rent on Craigslist!! The Mermaid's Pillow is ONLY rented through Home Away.

The Mermaid's Pillow was featured in the Fall 2015 edition of My Outer Banks Home. I was contacted regarding an article titled "Downsizing with Charm". We are fortunate enough to be giving the center fold. Also, my cottage was showcased in the annual "Parade of Homes" sponsored by the Outer Banks Homebuilders Association. We are pleased to announce that we were awarded the "Builders Excellence Award" by judges & with over 900 visitors through the cottage we were voted "People's Choice Award".

Cottage boasts classic Nags Head style with modern amenities. Color tvs, cable, internet & docking station. Fully appointed kitchen with electric range, microwave, refrigerator & dishwasher. Washer/dryer. Handicap accessible master bedroom & bath feature large roll-in shower and double vanity with roll-under feature for wheelchairs.

About Cindy Thornsvard

We have owned a 2nd home on the Outer Banks since 1999. As our children married & our family grew we found it necessary for a larger vacation home. In 2006 we built our new home in Nags Head and have been full time residents for almost 4 years.

Cindy Thornsvard purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Cindy Thornsvard chose Outer Banks

Since building our home we have a new son-in-law who is a quadriplegic. Our home is not accessible and their visits required staying in hotel. We decided to build a handicap accessible beach cottage for the use of our family & to put in a rental program. Our belief is that there are many families and/or individuals who will benefit from such a cottage. Whether is be a wheelchair, walker, cane or artificial limb. Although it is totally handicap accessible it is also the perfect cottage for those without disabilities.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique, cozy, affordable & conveniently located. Beach access is a short walking distance away with ramp leading to viewing platform. Open floor plan on ground level with master bedroom/bathroom. Covered porches front & back. Rear ramp make for easy access to pool deck & backyard. Plenty of parking.

Outstanding property

The PERFECT location with all the amenities! The first floor master accommodated our older parents while allowing the younger crowd to be upstairs sleeping in! This property is a must during the summer months taking advantage of pool. All thumbs up👍....thanks for providing a treasured getaway!

Perfect family beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our family. We travelled with two little ones under 2 years old, as well as grandma, and everyone was comfortable. The pool is great and so nice to have right there with a wonderful outdoor shower. While you can't see the beach from the house, it is right across the street and very convenient to walk to, even with a stroller. The bedrooms are all a good size, and the kitchen has everything you need. You can tell the whole cottage is well maintained, it was very clean upon arrival and the decorations made it seem really like our own home for the week. We had a great time and hope to visit again.

Great place, even better location literally across the street from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

House was warm and inviting, well

maintained and most importantly super clean. BIG kitchen was great to cook in. Bedrooms and bathrooms were great size and so nice. Outside was awesome with the pool being so refreshing and the outdoor shower coming in handy when you spend those long days at the beach. Overall we give it a 10 great vacation and place to stay.

Bright and Airy

  • 5 of 5

The Mermaid's Pillow is a charming, well equipped cottage full of natural light. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch, dinners on the pool deck and late night swims. The cottage is close to the beach, restaurants and ice cream! It was a wonderful vacation!

Mermaids Pillow is just perfect! It offers everything you need and is centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our vacation at Mermaids Pillow. From swimming in the pool to grilling out back and drinking our morning coffee on the front porch. It just doesn't get much better than this.

Fantastic stay at Mermaid's pillow. The owners were very nice and easy to contact. The house is in fine condition and has a wonderful location; very close to beach access.
