Property description

Guests love our newly remodeled nantucket style beach cottage! Come enjoy a new and clean vacation get-a-way. Our porches, carpet, bathrooms, central AC, were all newly updated in 2013. We've added Wi-Fi access, cable and new flat screen televisions. We just updated all the den furniture too including a new sofa. Enjoy preparing a dinner of local seafood in the remodeled kitchen and eat out on our new screened in porch. Sleep 8 comfortably in 3 bedrooms including 2 queen sized beds, bunk bed with a single and double bed, and single bed, 2 bathrooms and outdoor shower. A hammock under a Live Oak, porch swing, and rockers await your summer reading.

We are 1.7 miles from the Sanderling Inn and only 2.2 miles from the village of Duck, NC. A great location for weddings, honeymoons, and family reunions, our OBX beaches were rated #1 by US Travel. To make your visit more pleasant, we rent Sunday to Sunday, to avoid the change over gridlock.

OURS!

Car: Necessary

Located in SoundSea Village, our cottage is in a family friendly community with old school sand roads. We are on a quiet cul de sac with no through traffic just 2 miles from the village of Duck. Bike or jog there on the well loved walking/biking trail that stretches for miles north and south. We have private access to an uncrowded, wide, and clean beach. Jet ski, skim board, and kayak rentals for enjoying the near-by Currituck Sound are just a block away. Sunsets over the Sound and milky way viewing from our top deck are a must experience. Great location for a family reunion or fall wedding on the beach with other rent by owner cottages within walking distance. An Environmental Center, lighthouse tour, Wild Horse tour, and historic WhaleHead Mansion are just up the beach in Corolla.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: We are both educators. I am an artist and my wife, Robin, works with Autistic students. We love Duck for the wonderful people, and the unforgettable beauty of the sound, sea, and maritime woodlands. We have spent many summers at this cottage and are happy to give you tips on where and what to enjoy in the area. Ask us about our favorite walking paths, the hidden ship wreck, and favorite coffee houses!

Why the Owner Chose Duck:
After many summers of enjoying the beach with our children and family, I and my wife have lovingly restored and updated our family's cottage and hope to share and enjoy it for years to come.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
More modest than an ocean front rental, but more than your average beach box, this cottage is perfect for a family that is looking for a home away from home experience. Newly remodeled, the Nantucket style exterior just says 'relax.' Throughout the downstairs warm cypress paneling welcomes you and your family inside while the new screened in porch is perfect for resting between trips to the beach, sound, shopping, or bike path. Updated with new AC, the cottage is also designed to capture the summer breezes from all directions and with two sun decks, swing, picnic tables, a Live Oak shaded hammock, and more. There are plenty of places to enjoy family, or a good book, in the out of doors.
