"Large well-appointed home on quiet 4x4 beach with wild horses and heated swimming pool. Plus a mermaid bar and game room! Luxury by the sea!"

"Family trip April 2022 and let me just say EVERYONE was happy and that's all this momma cares about! This home has everything you need plus way more. Very clean and super comfy beds. Already planning our next trip to this lovely home!"

"Been to the home several times. Fits our family very well. All adults get ocean facing rooms and the upstairs bunk room is great for kids. The whole first floor is dedicated to recreation which is great for not so great weather days. Like that the hot tub is now in the pool area. Frees up the second floor deck which is very nice and shady with cool breeze. Like the indoor/outdoor bar area. The blue tooth speaker is a great addition."

Jeremy   ·  Stayed November 2021

"The home was great and in a great location on the 4x4 beaches. Plenty of space for a large family to spread out and enjoy time in the Outer Banks. The house came with all the amenities you could want, including a great table game room in the garage and a pool table in the basement. There were also a fair amount of board games included with the house. The kitchen was large and had many of the essential cooking/baking/storage supplies. The best part was being able to wake up to the sunrise and see the wild horses walking around just outside the house!"

Jessica   ·  Stayed July 2021

"Beautiful views, awesome layout. Was plenty of space for our large group of 20+ people. The bar was amazing, the ice maker was a dream come true after vacationing in Carova for many years. The kitchen had every gadget you could need. It was pretty clean too for a rental home. We had a few maintenance issues, but we always do, it's par for the course. We plan to re-book this home again. Everyone was happy. And it's almost like the walls are better insulated that in other homes, nobody was bothered by anyone else."

Jessica, we are so glad that you and your group enjoyed your stay at our home & thank you for your kind review! We have been working hard to make improvements on the house, trying to make it comfortable for everyone. Hopefully you can come back again to see future changes when you decide to visit the OBX again.

"Great house! Had everything you would need! The owner checked on us multiple times. Great party house. Lots of steps but would definitely rent again!"

John   ·  Stayed June 2020

"We were extremely pleased with this home. We have been coming to the Outer Banks for the past 9 years and this was by far the best equipped home we have been in. It was our first time on the 4 wheel beach and it was an experience. We had some concerns about the social distancing on the beach but were pleasantly surprised that being 7.6 miles up the 4 wheel drive beach that was not a concern. It was like we had our own private beach. We are seriously considering coming back to Mermaid's Reef next year."

"Beautiful home, worked out perfectly or our stay!"

William   ·  Stayed May 2020

"This home has everything one would need! From the spacious bedrooms to the huge pool area there is room to relax. The game room is an awesome feature not found everywhere. Multiple appliances made mealtime easy. The unique bar area and dune gazebo were fun gathering places. What a great vacation!"
