Great value, great experience, great comfort, and great goodness this was a great experience. Yes we did indeed enjoy our time at Rhonda's Ocean Isle Mermaid. This 2 bedroom condo is ever better than advertised. The living room and 1 bedroom overlook the dunes, beach, and ocean (bedrooms are configured with 1 queen and 1 single bed in each bedroom). Being on the second floor provided great views and a nice breeze. All the rooms are bright, cheerful, and clean decorated in a beach or Caribbean theme. Just being in this condo will make you smile. The furnishings were clean and comfortable with a well appointed kitchen. The biggest and most appreciated convenience was the apartment style washer/dryer right in the unit. What a time saver that was. It's apparent that Rhonda has put thought into making her guest comfortable by adding little touches such as beach chairs and a motion activated light at the front door. Each time you enter the front door you will appreciate this light.

It seemed that Rhonda became an old friend with the first email. She was always prompt, patient, and friendly. I have never sent a hotel or resort a thank you card for allowing me to stay at their facility but I have sent Rhonda one. This experience was more like visiting in a friend’s home rather than renting a condo.

Tip - Lowes grocery store is located just before you go onto Ocean Isle. It is a great place to stock up on supplies for your stay at Ocean Isle. They even have on line shopping and cater to vacationers. Shop on line before your trip...pick it up on the way to the beach.

“This little slice of paradise is food for the soul.”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I am so glad to have booked with Rhonda and her condo at A Place At The Beach 1. And TripAdvisor made the process very easy.
We thoroughly enjoyed our oceanside view and access to the beach and pool.
The condo was cozy and very comfortable, with all amenities we needed.
Rhonda was very helpful and friendly when I had to contact her with a few questions the day we arrived.
I look forward to 'Making It Happen' again for next summer's vacation.
We loved our visit to Ocean Isle Beach!

“Paradise Found”

people found this review helpful

Ocean Isle Mermaid turned out to be our own personal slice of papardise! The condo is even more cute in person than the pictures suggest. The condo was clean which is something we always look for and more than spacious for four adults. Rhonda made sure we were taken care of and had all we needed. It is in the perfect spot on the Island and right on the ocean. Every night we could listen to the waves crashing. We have found a little home away from home and are so grateful Rhonda opened her doors to us.

The place was compact but very nice, clean and well decorated with no surprises. The location of the end unit on the beach provided some wonderful sunrises each morning.
