About Kathy

We are a military family, with Tim serving over 20 years in the Air Force. We love the Outer Banks and bought the property as a place where we could gather with our family, including our dog.

Kathy purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

This is the best town in the Outer Banks. The stores are so cute, sales are great, everything is within walking distance. We like the restaurants, we love our neighborhood and the neighbors. The Town has been building the most wonderful park, boardwalk and town center. The area has gotten better and better since we first bought it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed by KDC-M on 06/03/2013

We had a wonderful experience at High Dune Hideaway! We were in the area for a wedding and were able to enjoy the amenities of the home with a few family members. The home was large enough that our group of ten adults and three children did not feel overwhelming or on top of each other. With seven bedrooms, a pool, multiple decks, a rec room, and a hot tub - there were plenty of places for us to disperse to while still being together. The neighborhood is very quiet and it is only a short walk to the beach, but please make sure no one parks on the street - before the wedding we had some family that was also in the area for the same wedding meet at the house to swim and then go out to dinner and the neighbors were very upset that someone accidentally parked on the street unknowingly. The owner was contacted, but she was very nice and understanding - just be warned that the neighborhood is very strict about this! Other than the small mishap with parking, we had an absolutely wonderful time and look forward to visiting the area again soon!

Awesome Vacation Home !!!

  • 5 of 5

I honestly think this house is prettier in person........the location is perfect. Down the street is a private beach access - up the street are cute shops, restaurants and ice cream enjoyed while on the boardwalk watching the sunset ! The two dishwashers and refrigerators came in VERY handy and the kitchen was well-stocked with good quality pots and pans and cutlery. Plenty of plates and coffee cups......also, the option of a Keurig and TWO coffee pots. Again, came in very handy with 12 people. I think the drawers had every kitchen tool or gadget imaginable......

The pool got a LOT of use and there were plenty of beach towels and dishtowels. The white linens are a little sparse if you use a lot of bath towels daily......or just wash them in the laundry room on the middle floor.

All in all, I would highly recommend this home. It was great for little ones and dogs, as the top floor (where the kitchen, family room, dining area and master suite are located) had a built-in baby gate.

Thanks for an awesome and very comfortable week !!

This house was perfect for our large crowd! Kids, grandkids, co-workers, friends, my boyfriend, and myself all had an amazing vacation! Air conditioner wasn't cooling the downstairs, called maintenance, and within an hour it was fixed. Pool stopped filtering, called maintenance and within 2 hours it was fixed AND the pool man came by several times during the week to check on it! Customer service was terrific! The gift basket from the owners was definitely a surprise and much appreciated and enjoyed! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! We will definitely be back!

What a great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

September is a great month for a vacation in Duck. This house was amazing! Lots of space to spread out. The pool was great and was nice to have on a couple of iffy beach days. The house had great amenities. The owner and rental company are so nice and made everything so easy. Easy walk to the beach, but the parking passes were nice to have on super hot days. Close to shopping and great restaurants. Very peaceful neighborhood. Every day we saw deer and other wild life. Thanks so much for a great week. Definitely would rent this house again.

Sure to Return

Our family truly enjoyed our week in this home. My husband and I (the grandparents) had the top floor master suite as we're the early risers. Families with children took the middle floor, plenty of room, nice bathrooms, laundry.

Pool area very nice with lots of pool toys provided. Gas grill was a plus. Even a wagon to help haul all the beach stuff. Short walk to beach access by boardwalk. Two parking passes came with home so our son could haul little ones and beach chairs, umbrellas. Can't believe my boys didn't enjoy the horseshoe pit, but our week was a scorcher!

Kitchen was well stocked with big pots etc so we could cook corn and enough spaghetti for everyone all at once.

Lots of great books if you're a reader, tons of puzzles and games, or Direct TV if you're not.

Great location for a short walk to the shops in Duck. Closest large grocery store 10 miles towards Corolla, Harris Teeter, prices comparable to home. Traffic terrible between 9 am and 4 pm, only bad experience!! Sat for hours to get up ocean road.

Thanks for sharing your home!

The best of Duck

  • 5 of 5

My group and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The pictures don't really do this house justice, it's very spacious and comfortable. The house is split into three levels, the 1st level on the ground floor has the pool table and two bedrooms, this space was great for our seafood allergic friend to escape to while we cooked up shrimp and grits. The 2nd level where the front door is has a deck of its own with a super comfortable hammock swing and the hot tub (yay!). The 4 bedrooms that are located here are all spacious and comfortable. Two of them have their own bathrooms! This set up worked really well for the young family that came with us that had a two year old. They were able to set up the crib in the other room across the hall. The 3rd floor had the master bedroom (with a massive bathroom), the living room, kitchen and dining room. We had 8 people on the trip and we never felt crowded. The kitchen is stocked beyond anyone's expectations and even had two dishwashers!

The beauty of the 3rd floor was you're so high up that you have a constant view of the ocean above all the other roof tops. You can watch the sunrise with your cup of coffee without walking to the beach. The deck on this floor doesn't have access to the ground so it's secure to let your pups roam around on without them wandering off. We all spent many hours on this deck reading books and sipping our cocktails.

The pool was fantastic too and there's a whole bin of pool toys. There's even two clean outdoor showers to rinse off the sand before getting in the house or the pool after the beach. The maintenance crew is very attentive as well.

The cherry on top was the closet full of beach things. A wagon, chairs, umbrellas, you name it.

This house was perfectly positioned near downtown Duck but just outside of the fuss. The boardwalk was right across the street and many great restaurants were within walking distance (including Duck Donuts). I loved that this house is on a private, dead-end street with a private beach access. It really cut down on the amount of people on the beach at our access.

All in all, I hope to rent this house all next year!
