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.

Well maintained, great location, very clean, and great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to OBX and we could not have picked a better home to stay at! The Mermaid's Pillow provided a quiet, relaxing, and restful retreat at the end of our busy days. The location was great, close to stores, food and 2 easy access spots to the beach. We appreciated to attention to detail in the decorating and the overall comfort provided. We highly recommend the Mermaid's Pillow!!

Great decor and location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and well appointed. The beds were comfortable. The location was

Across the street from beach access and down the street from Tortuga's Lie, which we ate at twice! Delicious! We also enjoyed going the other direction to Lucky 12. Although the weather wasn't the warmest, it didn't take away from the home, location or amenities!

Perfect Cottage for our Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My mother, sister and our two young sons stayed for a girls weekend and the cottage was perfect for our stay! We have rented multiple cottages in the Outer Banks throughout the years and this one has been by far our favorite! The home was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed (and more!) for our stay. We felt right at home and hope to return for another trip in the future. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

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!
