1st Time in Outer Banks
This was our first vacation to the Outer Banks. We were very pleased with the Blue Fin. We traveled with six adults, four children 2 and under and one dog. There was plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the home. The kitchen was well equipped and even provided kitchen towels and paper towels. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The only suggestion would be for the playground area to either be sand or grass. There were too many rocks and plants for the children to play outside. The children did enjoy the swing set, pool, and porch swing. The first day we walked to the beach which was about a mile walk. The rest of the time we took the shuttle which was much more enjoyable.
The gated community is great and we enjoyed using the community indoor and outdoor pools as well. We also enjoyed the short walk to Duck. Of course the Duck donuts were great!
We were not prepared for the four hours that it took us to go the last twenty miles to the house in bumper to bumper traffic.
Would certainly recommend this home and community.
Hi! Just fyi--the distance from our house to the beach access is less than one-half mile, so about a 8-10 minute walk. This is along a paved beach path that runs along the edge of the community. There are no major roads to cross. I'm happy to share the address with potential renters so you can map the distance! We do understand, first hand, that 10 minutes can seem long but there are options: There is a free shuttle from Memorial Day to Labor Day which is quite convenient. There are also parking spaces and bike racks. We do have a large Rolleez beach cart that makes carrying chairs and coolers easier. There is also a large outdoor pool by the beach access with full bathroom facilities (plus kiddie pool, shade, and playground), so no emergency runs back to the house! Hope that helps! Regina (owner)
The house was just what we needed. Very much meets its description. We loved all of the balconies. A playpen for the baby. Having the pool was great for the older kids. We used the Wii as well. The garage had some pool toys, beach chairs, and boogie boards for guest use. The beach was a few blocks away, but there is a weekday beach trolley that runs frequently through the community. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The house is about a 10 minute walk to downtown Duck. Keyless entry was great b/c we didn't have to pick up keys in the crazy traffic of arrival day. We would definitely recommend.
Great house, you won't be disappointed as everything is as described in the listing. The owners couldn't have been nicer and Southern Shores couldn't have been easier to deal with. My 2 & 4 year olds loved the game cabinet, the big floor puzzles were a big hit for them. The ocean was too chilly this time of year for the little ones, but they had great fun playing on the beach and in the hot tub. Our dog enjoyed hanging out on the deck watching the world go by. Great community for walking and the club house amenities were nice. We were sorry not to have checked out the club house earlier in the week.
Duck Deli and Duck Donuts were favorites. Definitely try the smoked tuna salad at Duck Deli. Pizzazz Pizza has great pizza and delivery was quick. The Currituck Lighthouse is really close. You can go paddle boarding in the sound. If you are interested in seeing Corolla's wild horses, you need a 4 wheel drive vehicle or be prepared to pay a tour company. Check out the Wright Brothers Museum in Kitty Hawk and the NC Aquarium in Manteo. We went to Big Al's in Manteo for lunch and the food was good diner food.
Thanks for such a great place to stay during our vacation. We hope to be back when the water is a little warmer for the little ones! :)
Great Place to Stay in Duck
We have stayed at Blue Fin several times and we have enjoyed each vacation. The location is perfect - easy access to the beach (especially with the beach cart provided), and quick access to the town of Duck (which is great for the kids who like to go for ice cream and shopping). Also, the house is on a cul-de-sac, so the traffic is minimal. The owners are constantly updating the house - new this year is a tiki bar by the pool! There are tennis courts available, and for bad-weather days, there is an indoor pool. Will plan on staying at Blue Fin again!
Great Getaway House
We loved our stay at the Blue Fin. We vacationed with 4 families (8 adults and 6 kids) and never felt crowded because the house is so roomy and spacious. There was plenty of room to socialize comfortably both inside and outside. The house was very clean. The kitchen was well-stocked with everythig we needed for a week of feasts. The kids loved the pool and the terrific swing set outside. They also loved riding bikes in the cul de sac (the adults loved that it was a safe play for them to ride). The clubhouse with the indoor pool was a great feature and we appreciated it on our one rainy morning. We liked being within walking distance to restaurants and stores. We would definitely return to this property.
Great house, and love Four Seasons - perfect place to be in the Outer Banks. So close to downtown Duck that you never need a car, and great amenities in the community. House has good layout for extended families vacationing together - lots of space to spread out and still keep an eye on the kids. Tennis and indoor pool/fitness center is a short walk away, which is great on a rainy day.
