    Beach Week in Nags Head

    Reviewed by: Tiffany W. on


    My family had an absolutely perfect time staying at the Ginger Mermaid Cottage during the last week of May 2019. The check-in process went very smoothly (lots of detail provided by Evolve and Janet prior to arrival). She made us feel comfortable and was easy to get a hold of during our stay. The location is amazing, right in Nags Head, and close to a lot of places we wanted to visit in Outer Banks. We enjoyed the sane dunes at Jockey Ridge, water sports on the sound, local ice cream shop <5 minutes walk away, and OF COURSE the <5 minute walk to a beautiful beach. The amenities and size of the property were perfect for our group. Janet has pretty much thought of everything, especially in the kitchen!! The kitchen is probably better stocked than my own home kitchen! Everything was clean, just as listed, and no surprises. Would definitely come back again!!

    This was our first trip to the outerbanks and we had a great time. The place was very comfortable and clean. The checking in process was great. I've never had it easier. Janet was extremely friendly and available. Luckily we never needed to call on her. We will definitely return in future years.

    Lovely stay

    Reviewed by: Lee M. on


    Overall the property was really nice. We were the first renters of the season, so there were a few hiccups along the way, but Janet was a great host and responded promptly and appropriately. The kitchen was one of the best-stocked kitchens we've ever had in a rental home. There was plenty of space for two families to be together OR to have space from each other. The kids loved being able to walk to the Surfin' Spoon (yogurt). We would definitely rent here again.

    Well equipped home in a lovely location

    We rented the Ginger Mermaid Cottage for a long weekend to attend a wedding in Nags Head. We brought our parents with us to watch our baby while we went to the wedding, and the house was perfect for us. The nursery upstairs by the main master was just exactly what we needed, and the house is very well equipped (especially the kitchen) and thought out. The owners/ managers have done very thoughtful things to make your stay really enjoyable. We would definitely rent this exact house again!

    Fantastic home!

    Reviewed by: Elaine V. on


    We have been renting for over 10 years different homes. This was by far the best stocked home, with gas grill! No charcoal and not bringing your own! With beach and bathroom towels included! All new kitchen appliances and a game room set up like a movie theatre! Close walk to beach and cute shops. And ice cream! Owner is delightful, pleasant and her shop is lovely. I only hope this home is available next year when we come again! Thank you!!

    My family of 4 rented this house for a week beginning 6/25/17. The place was immaculate and so spacious. The kitchen is brand new with all of the modern necessities . The beds were really comfortable, and it was nice and quiet the entire week. The house is a quick walk to the beach, and on the way there are some really nice shops along the way . We highly recommend this place and will be rebooking this resort again in the future.

    Awesome property!

    Had the great pleasure to stay here recently. The property is gorgeous and spacious. 5 star accommodation! Immaculate and comfortable with all of the amenities you could possibly need. Close to beach and everything Nags Head has to offer. Awesome art gallery on first floor. Tucked in quiet neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will do so again in the future. I cannot recommend it enough!

    We loved it!

    Getting our scattered family together in one place has been a real task over the years. But this year everyone was excited to join together in the Outer Banks! The Ginger Mermaid Cottage was just perfect for all of us to stay in comfortably. The spacious kitchen had all the gadgets we needed to make our homemade meals, and the whole family had a great time! The owner, Janet, is a super sweet lady, which made our stay that much more enjoyable :)
