About Brenda Campbell
I am an Real Estate Agent in Katy, TX. I try my best to think of all the 'little' items that make a vacation the best, like supplying sand chairs, umbrella's, having a well appointed kitchen etc. The number of repeat guests has been awesome! They take care of the house as if it was there own. Year after year I am amazed as how wonderful these folks take care of our house.
Brenda Campbell purchased this House in 1996
Why Brenda Campbell chose Duck
We love the Outer Banks (been vacationing here for 25 years), but Duck is the best location! Easy walk to the charming village with great shops and wonderful places to dine. If it's a movie or mini golf you want, it's just a short drive up the highway. Then head back home to the relaxing area and away from the craziness up the road! Beaches are uncrowded and clean. Duck is also a very family oriented spot.
What makes this House unique
We call our home "My Happy Place". It feels like home not a house. We are located in one of Duck's most popular communities "Colony By The Sea". Private parking at the beach. No public access to the beach. Children can ride bikes, play tennis, playground and basketball courts. Our pictures are recent and we keep our home in excellent condition.

Great house! Great location! Great owner!
This house was everything we expected and more. The downstairs was completely renovated and modern. The lay out of the house was great. New paved drive way was great instead of the gravel in the pictures. Brenda was great with helping with any questions. Short walk to the beach like the description stated. Had everything you needed for a day at the beach. Will forsure be coming back to the house again in the future!
Clean, conveniently located, and comfortable
We have stayed in a number of beach houses and this was one of the cleaner and well cared for ones we have seen. You can tell the owners take a lot of pride in this rental. Also, the owner was very accommodating and flexible with us when we had a last minute change. Duck was a cute little town with lots of shops and restaurants. I highly recommend this rental to others in need of a relaxing but convenient get away.
Thank you for renting our home. We love our place in Duck. So happy we were able to help with the dates. Please visit us again! Thank YOU, Brenda
Great beach house in Duck
This cute gem is in the heart of Duck. In walking distance to all hot spots and shopping in Duck!!! The pool and the beach is a short walk. The jacuzzi was a main feature for us each night!!!!
Thank you so much for your review. We hope you will come back next year. We love returning guests
Perfect Home away from home!
We have been going to Duck for 15 years and this was the perfect house for us. We will stay here every summer now! So well equipped. We loved the outside shower. None of us showered in the house all week. Having the big lower level laundry room was so great. We could throw our surfboards and beach stuff in there every day, get undressed and straight into outside shower. The hot tub was great for the evenings. The kitchen was prefect for having friends over (we had friends staying in the condos) and we could entertain a few couples and play cards! The beds were super comfy and we slept great. In the morning we would sit on the deck and watch the deer. We brought bikes and would bike up to the beach and park our bikes at the condo's. I wouldn't change one thing!!!
Once again, my family had a great time staying at this house in Duck, NC.
It has been our 15th year at the same house for our vacation week in June.
We LOVE our returning guests! Blessing, Brenda
Indeed a Happy Place
This property is a walk away from the beach and from Duck, NC. In the evenings, we played dominos and worked on jigsaw puzzles. The beach house is tucked into a beachfront hamlet with paved roads and little traffic. We walked to the beach in the morning and at night and could sit on the deck and hear the ocean roar. Duck, NC is a beautifully quaint beach resort with a super coffee/book shop (spent lots of time there) and many unique local restaurants. We kayaked and chased wild horses on the beach (local tour). There are many choices of thing to do in the area. We'll certainly return to My Happy Place.
Just about everything you need is a short walk into town. We love walking in the mornings to Duck Donut. They have the best donuts in the world. We love also going to The Cantina for Mexican Food, it over looks the Sound and Roadside Bar & Grill serves great sea food and other local favorites. Tons of restaurants and shopping.
