The Tip Sea Mermaid is a fully renovated beach house in Salvo situated on a corner lot just 200 feet from the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. While the interior of this oceanside retreat is top-notch, it's the outdoor areas that will truly make your next vacation one for the books. From the multiple decks and hot tub to the spacious backyard with fire pit, there are plenty of opportunities for spending quality time with family and friends. Lounge in the sun and enjoy an ocean view from the expansive rooftop observation deck, or relax in the shade with a good book on the screened-in porch. Either way, you'll feel the refreshing salty breezes and hear the sound of crashing waves. When it's time to hit the beach, use the Quay Street public access located just a three-minute walk from the house. Load up the beach cart to easily transport your coolers, toys and gear for a full day of sun, sand and surf.

Inside, this classic cottage has been completely remodeled and furnished with beach-lovers in mind. Upgrades include a brand new kitchen with quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, an updated primary bath with custom tile work, and LVP flooring that runs throughout the entire home. Thoughtful design choices like shiplap walls, fun accent colors and coastal-themed wallpaper all tie together for that modern beach house vibe. Outside, a large fenced-in backyard is perfect for cookouts and yard games. In the evenings, gather the family around the fire pit to plan the next day's adventures, or unwind with a relaxing soak in the hot tub before heading off to bed. Bed and bath linens are always included at no extra charge, and the beds will be made with fresh sheets and pillowcases prior to your arrival.

The Tip Sea Mermaid is located in Hatteras Colony on the northern end of Salvo, where the pristine beaches are wide and uncrowded. While the location is ideal for guests looking for a remote and natural setting, it's still within a mile radius from watersports, surf shops, a market and deli, take-out options, ice cream and the popular Watermen's Bar & Grill. Slightly farther north you'll find even more dining and shopping options in the town of Rodanthe. Be sure to set aside a day for a trip to Cape Hatteras, where you can climb the lighthouse, go driving on the beach, or hop on a ferry to Ocracoke.

"This was the perfect spot for a low key stress-free vacation. I could even sun my buns on the upper deck , neighbors kept to themselves but very friendly. would love to come back.."

"Our stay at this house was WONDERFUL! This house is well decorated, with spunky decor, and surprisingly lots of room and decks for family and kid's friends to have their own space to hang out. The hottub is private with a beautiful look at the stars in the evening. There is a great view of the ocean from the top deck, with beach access directly across the street. We loved our stay in this house and look forward to returning here again this Summer!!"
