Recent Duck reviews
"This home feels just like our own home--every detail has been thoughtfully designed for comfort and enjoyment. Each bedroom has HD televisions and Blueray/DVD and there is an XBox in a game room/bedroom upstairs for the kids. There is a wonderful sound system so you can be anywhere in or outside the house and listen to your favorite music, even while you soak in the wonderfully maintained 6-person hot tub! We spent lots of time on the expansive covered front porch enjoying our lunches and happy hours under the ceiling fans and enjoying the feeling of being on vacation but not wasting money on a house too large for our family or too superficial for our taste. This is a well-maintained and recently renovated house that has improved fixtures, appliances, and upscale furniture. The kitchen is well-stocked with anything you might think of, plenty of dishes and glasses, cookware and gadgets. There is a massive table for family dining and game night! The property is managed by the owners which we think is a huge bonus. Communication was promptly answered when necessary and the house is cleaner than many we've rented in the past. The location is about 1/4 mile walk from the beach along a quiet and private neighborhood. You have full beach access and the proximity to Duck and shopping is ideal. Kitty Hawk is not very far either if you have local tours in mind like Jockey's Ridge or the Wright Museum.
There are also plenty of paths for those who enjoy walking or jogging along the road and there are two Watersports businesses on the sound within 5 mins if you want to take in a boat rental, jet ski, or kayak.
We really loved this home and highly recommend it to families of 4-6 people or perhaps two couples with small children. There is something for everyone. Highly recommended!!! 😃"

"We've stayed in fancy Duck houses and a couple that were below our standards. This house is just right. Really comfortable, well maintained, nicely equipped kitchen, great spa with pleasant outdoor seating. The Colony By the Sea pool - right by the beach, with bathrooms - is a great arrangement for a family. The bedrooms downstairs are small, but if your main purpose - like ours - was to be either outside or together in the common areas, that's a minor consideration. Janet the owner is friendly and helpful."

"My husband and I dropped our last child at college and took a week at the beach for just us. This cottage was perfect. We have stayed in the OBX at various homes over the past twenty years and this was hands down the best appointed cottage. It is beautifully decorated, spotless, has beautiful decks and a relaxing hammock and swing. The kitchen is the best outfitted kitchen of any beach house we have ever been in. It lacked nothing and I like to cook! Top it off with great views (easy beach access) and an incredible week of weather, we could not have had a better vacation. I cannot wait to return!"

"Our family recently enjoyed vacationing at this beach home. It was quite tastefully decorated throughout. We had younger children and older teenagers in our group. The layout is well thought out and met our needs very well. Having a bathroom with all the eight bedrooms was huge! Access to the plentiful decks from most of the rooms was a plus.
The kitchen was well equipped with every appliance we needed. Our teenagers enjoyed the 4 bicycles provided. The most used pool toy by children as well as adults was the basketball set. They all loved it! We are all avid basketball fans anyway!! The pool slide was also enjoyed. Lynn, the owner, was wonderful to work with and her response time was always prompt. We would highly recommend this Life O'Rily beach home for a fun filled family vacation! You're sure to make good memories there...we did!!"
