"I recently retired and gained the opportunity to stay in this great house for 6 months (SEP-MAR) while my wife and I recharged and found what was next for us. Very centrally located in the great village of Duck. 10 minutes walk to the beach or all the shops and restaurants. Great pool and spa in the backyard and great community pools and gym facilities minutes away. See views of the ocean out the front windows and sunsets out the back! We have been vacationing in Duck for 14 years and this house and this neighborhood are tops. Highly recommended."

"We needed a stress free vacation and this place fit the bill perfectly! Very nice accommodations, clean, up to date with great features including granite countertops, WiFi, flat panel TV's and more. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and spacious. This was a perfect relaxing place to unwind. Beautiful views from the lanai and listening to the waves was great. If you're looking for a great place without the crowds this is it! There's plenty to see and do and restaurants are close by. Kudos to the owners and management team for making our stay comfortable and relaxing! We'll be back."

"From the moment we walked in the door to Shells Yeah! we felt right at home. Any doubts or concerns about our blind rental instantly disappeared. The property is exactly as advertised. Cozy and inviting with more than adequate space, it has everything you could want or need. The welcome bucket was a lovely surprise and thoughtful touch! Most appreciated! This was our first visit to the Outerbanks and Avon was a perfect choice, peaceful and relaxing. The beach access is a very short stroll- just a couple houses down the quiet side street. Our dog had a great time splashing in the waves and chasing crabs in the sand! I must admit she was NOT a fan of The Captain, growling and barking until we had to cover him with a blanket for the first day! The screened porch was our favorite place to relax, especially the hammock swing. The location of the house is great, close by to restaurants, the grocery store, seafood markets, the Ocracoke ferry etc but still secluded enough to feel away from any hustle and bustle. Thank you so much for sharing your home Eric and Meghan! We can't wait to return next year!!"

"We again had a great vacation while staying at Blue Dog. We find this home to be very comfortable and cozy while having a terrific location. We rented kayaks for the week and enjoyed exploring the coves and small canals close by and took long walks each day on different beaches. We always enjoy the many restaurants on the island but find it pretty hard to beat cooking fresh seafood from Risky Business and eating on the deck while watching the pelicans dive for fish during the beautiful sun sets. The only problem with this house and it's location and for Hatteras Island is that there's just too much to do and see and never enough time. But we'll be back next year to keep trying."
