This unit is well laid out and very comfortable! We enjoyed the view of the ocean from the deck and the easy access to the beach!

We really enjoyed our stay at Mermaid's Rest.
Great centralized but quiet location for the southern part of the Island. 4 Adults plenty of space even for our shrimp/scallop boil!

A very unique and beautiful condo. The kitchen was well stocked from plates, utensils from forks to spatulas to corkscrew, the bedrooms have sheets, blankets, and pillows. There are 2 sliders going out to the balcony that overlooks the lovely pool, and beyond that the dunes and the ocean. Everything was clean as a whistle.

Been visiting for over 50 years. Been staying at Durant for a few years now. The unit we were in, Mermaid Rest, was outdated and in need of maintenance and updates. 1st day shower head broke off. 3 days later it was finally repaired. Several lights were out in the master. We had to share the shower and bath with our 2 sons while the other waited for repair. There were HUGE COCKROACHES! Dirty ceiling fans. No toilet paper holder in bathroom…. Stained towels…. Old outdated furniture. Broken dressers with missing drawers. Poor kitchen utensils. No place the get coins for the laundry. The elevator broke down and was never repaired. A handicapped woman asked my son to help her carry her things down the stairs due to the elevator being down. The only good thing is the ease of getting to the beach, location and the pool.

Good place with a view in a quiet area. There’s a few good restaurants nearby too.

Location was great, the place was very clean and well maintained, and there was easy access to the beach, bakeries, ice cream shop, and grocery store.

My family of four booked Mermaid's Rest for a spring break getaway. We were sent a text message with our key code and info about a parking pass, but no information on where the pass was located. We thought maybe it would be inside the condo. Upon our arrival, we did not find a parking pass but we did find dirty counter tops, unswept floors, and a moldy shower curtain. I am a mom of 2, so I wasn't expecting perfection, but I must say I was disappointed with their definition of "expert cleaning". Our linens were indeed "fresh"...they were seemingly brand new with inspection stickers attached and were complete with insufferable white fuzz. And, this is what I hesitate to share: I found 3 cockroaches, 2 of which were dead making me think the condo had previously been sprayed.
I should note that Vacasa had reached out asking how we found the cleanliness of the condo upon our arrival. I shared it was dirty, and that I had gone to task cleaning before thinking to take pictures, which they had asked for. I did take a picture of the moldy shower curtain and sent it to them. They told me they would notify the "cleaning" staff.
Let me end this review on a positive note. We enjoyed the location, the beach, and the local restaurants. While we would consider staying at Durant Station again, we will not be booking the Mermaid's Rest.
Manager response:

I loved the location, the ocean views and the fact that the hot tub was still open in November. Room was exceptionally clean and well stocked with wonderful stainless steel pans...everything you need in the kitchen. Linens were also provided. Edith, the staff member was very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be staying again.

Mermaid's Rest 109DS-H was great! perfect for a week long get away. The location is perfect for restaurant hopping too. Or cooking in. We loved it. Deck oceanside was private, a great place to watch the sunrise, or catch a few rays with a cup of coffee in hand. The platform deck by the ocean is a great place to sit with friends and a bottle of wine and watch the sun go down, while the Hatters light house comes alive and begins to circle. This is a wonderful place for families or couples. Can we book now for next year?

Fantastic place! Can't wait to go back.

The condo was very clean when we arrived, which is always a relief. It had everything we needed to make breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. They stocked the condo with hand soap, dish soap, a sponge, an extra trash bag, dish detergent for the dishwasher, laundry detergent for the laundry room (we didn't use the coin laundry while we were there), hand soaps for the bathrooms, and shampoo and conditioner. There was also a broom, dust pan, and vacuum in the closet with the water heater (which is something I have found a lot of rentals never have readily available to renters--although they should!). The condo is in a perfect location right off the beach. We just walked downstairs and straight out to the water. We were close enough that we could keep our patio door open every night and listen to the ocean waves. It was the perfect little spot for our little family (my husband, two boys 3 and 5, and myself)! It was also located close to shops and dining. We ate at Dinkys one night, and it was great! We stayed at the beginning of May, so it was too cold for the pool, but we could see if from our balcony and it looked clean and well taken care of. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet place to relax in Hatteras! We really enjoyed our stay!
