"The house was even better in person than the photos- it looks a little hidden away and dark pulling up, but once inside, it had sleeping quarters on the main level with a master room and a two twins room with a shared full bath on each side of the hallway running the length of the house. It was perfect for two couples with kids. We were two couples with one child each, so more than enough room for us. The upstairs was bright and sunny, with vaulted ceiling and a wraparound deck. The kids had plenty of space to build chair forts and set up domino runs.
The walk to the beach was very short, and through a private neighborhood with no traffic, and you can park at the end and haul your stuff from your car to the beach. There were no lifeguards on this private beach, so if you are looking for lifeguards, you can drive 5 minutes south.
Right across the main road is the pool, which was a great added diversion, especially since the ocean was a bit rough for swimming. Running along the main road is a nice bike path, and there's a bike rental right in town, so we got to bike around every day, and even rollerblade. Warning: the bike path ends at the town of Duck, so you are on the side of the road, which felt precarious with kids and even worse on weekends. But if you go the opposite direction, you can go for a nice long ride. Town of Duck is adorable, with free yoga, a free magic show and more. Everyone is out and about and active.
The owner was very helpful and informative and sent back our security deposit promptly. I suggest bringing basics with you such as soap, shampoo, laundry soap, dish soap, etc. as they aren't supplied and can be a little pricey in town, but having the laundry room was a great addition and the kitchen had all the basics we needed for cooking, including a charcoal grill outside, and fresh towels and washcloths are provided. It's a great getaway for families- I would definitely go there again!"
