Duck house description

Location, Location, Location! Unrivaled ocean views from the oceanfront decks and nautical-themed home makes for the perfect beach vacation. Breathe the sea mist as a private walkway leads you to the dune deck and a beautiful beach (consistently ranked as one of America's best). The warm summer waves invite you to swim where the dolphins play. Crowning SEAMIST is a 'crows nest' - seating for six - where morning coffee, sunset cocktails, or star-gazing is at its best. Cook on the deck's gas grill or take a short walk to the Village of Duck for great shopping, restaurants, a spa and sport rentals. Inside, an ample great room boast a rope-swing, plush furnishings, high speed Internet access, well-equipped kitchen, TV with premium stations, VCR, DVD, answering machine etc. Two master bedrooms face the ocean. Both have queen beds and ceiling fans. The 'bunk-room' sleeps four and has its own TV. The fourth bedroom has two comfortable twin beds. Most guests return year after year. There are many new additions for 2013 - new wall to wall carpet throughout the house, a new kitchen floor, upgraded laundry room, new dishwasher, new stove, new exterior steps, new window treatments and more.


Extra amenities are included

There are so many extras that have not been discussed. The house is built on pilings and has a game room and play area underneath. A screened 'Pirates Den' complete with an adult bar, TV and booty. There is a Nags Head hammock and lots of sand toys. Also included are wave-riding boards, skim boards and beach chairs. The laundry room - with a washer and dryer - is also located down here. Outside this area is a shuffle board court and long drive way with four off-street parking spaces. There is an enclosed outside shower next to the laundry room. The main deck has deck furniture - dinning table, six chairs, two loungers and two small tables. A high chair and port-a-crib is also provided. The lower deck also has a table and four chairs, a water hand-pump and large potted flowers. The dune deck has built-in seating with steps to the beach. Seamist(173-A) is listed with Sun Realty in Duck, NC and someone is always available to take care of any problems that might occur with the house.


So much to see and do!

With the beach in front of you and great shopping, restaurants and a park within walking distance, you may not want to get into your car to explore the many exciting places on the Outer Banks. There are four great lighthouses that are worth seeing - the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and Ocracoke Island Lighthouse which you have to take a ferry to get to the island. The Whalehead Club and Wildlife Educational Center are interesting. The site of the first airplane flight by the Wright brothers is a National Park in Kill Devil Hills. The park displays replicas of the original Wright Flyer. Jockey's Ridge, the tallest sand dune on the east coast is in Nags Head. Climbing to the top to view the sunset over the sound is memorable. Keep driving south on Rt. 12 and you reach Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Oregon Inlet. A visit to the Manteo Waterfront and the Elizabethan Gardens is a great trip.


Fall and Winter

Fall and winter bring their own charm to the Outer Banks. The big crowds are gone and long walks on the beach often have one set of foot prints - yours. September and October are warm and golden; the sea oats are full and heavy, waving over the dunes. The traffic is gone, so a trip to watch the fish come in or just to go out to dinner is a pleasure - no waiting. If fishing is your passion, the piers and the surf off of our beach have produced fantastic catches. Golf is another activity that is more pleasurable during warm days in fall and winter. There are many courses to choose from and again - no waiting. Most of the shops have 'end of the season' sales and the restaurants are happy to see you without reservations. Shells on the beach appear more plentiful. Many people - including the owners - prefer this slower season.
