The name of our cottage is Craic'n Crabs. Craic is Gaelic for good times and fun. It is located on a quiet cul de sac within a 15 minute walk (just under 1 mile) from the shopping and restaurants of Duck. The water photos of our property have not been zoomed. You have an almost 360 degree view of water from our decks and incredible views from the master bedroom as well as views from the two other bedrooms.

On the main floor of the house you will find a wide open family room, dining area, kitchen, guest bedroom and kids bedroom as well as a full bath. There is also a screened porch right off of the kitchen. The top floor has the master bedroom, the master bath as well as a balcony running the full width of the house over looking the main floor.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, the guest bedroom has a queen and the kids room has a full over full bunkbed as well as a single bed.

The best views of the water can be found on our expansive top deck. Our hot tub is located here which provide fantastic views of the ocean and sound during the day and spectacular views of the night sky to enjoy star gazing. We have plenty of seating for hanging out with the family or enjoy tanning on a lounge chair while listening to the outside ipod/stereo system. You can access the top deck from the balcony over the family room, the master bedroom or the outside stairs through the screened porch.

Our cottage is a short walk to the beach as well as the Albermarle Sound, pool and tennis court. Enjoy crabbing at the end of our neighborhood dock, which is partially covered. There are only 5 homes on our cul de sac resulting in a safe and quiet area for kids to play. Our backyard is essentially a dune which is also great for the kids.

Craic'n Crabs will feel like your second home. It is warm and cozy. Everything you need is provided - from a fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs and boogie boards to a pack'n play, wagon, beach toys and crab trap.

Enjoy eating in our screened in porch right off our kitchen with beautiful views of the Sound. The master bedroom has a wet bar. We have a convenient and powerful outside shower for when you return from a long day at the beach. Our beds are comfortable for a great nights sleep and our hammock is nice for a quiet, shaded nap during the day. We also have a convenient fish cleaning station.

Also, we'd like to thank all of the guests that have been coming back for many years. We are especially proud that they like our home so much that they have chosen to keep returning. You can read their comments in the review section.

We hope that you enjoy your stay!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Our family of four first went to and fell in love with Duck in 1998. We have two sons that are now teenagers. Although we live 6 hours away in Pennsylvania we make the drive down to the outer banks every chance we get.

                          Why the Owner Chose Duck:
                          Duck is a quiet and beautiful village. It is a great walking town with plenty of shopping and restaurants. The private beaches are spectacular without all of the crowds of the northeast. Duck is conveniently located so that you can drive to the off road area to see the wild horses in the north or head south to Oregon Inlet to charter a fishing boat.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This is one of the highest elevations in Duck and provides unparelleled views of the water from almost all directions. We wanted a quiet street for the kids with an easy walk to town, the beach and the sound. Our neighborhood has private beach access as well as a private pool and a private tennis courts.
