About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Many Updates: New Downstairs Flooring! New Bedding, New TV in Master, Wireless Internet Added and Free Unlimited Long Distance!!! New Flat Screen TV in the family room. Our home is a few streets back from the center of Duck and is so close to the beach! We just love the fact that we are on a small private street and only have to walk a few minutes to be at the ocean (300 yards to be exact). We are also so close to the sound and the sunsets at night are beautiful there! Our house is called Duck Soup and is one of the original homes in Duck. We have recently redecorated the cottage and it looks great with so many cute flairs! We've updated the feel but still kept it quaint! This house has an hot tub right off of the kitchen on a screened in porch. Our kids love it and so do the adults. We also have an outdoor shower for showering after a day at the beach. Remember that we are pet friendly and have a fenced yard for your special family member you don't want to leave behind! Our laundry room houses many bikes, boogie boards and more to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Duck Soup is great for families with kids as the kids can be upstairs in the loft watching movies and the adults can be downstairs watching what they'd like and fixing dinner! Upstairs are 2 bedrooms. One is the master with a king size bed. The master also has a private balcony where you can enjoy your coffee in the morning up in the trees! The 2nd bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds. Both bedrooms share the upstairs bathroom in between the two rooms. Downstairs is the 3rd bedroom with a Queen bed and bath. Upstairs is a loft with a futon, Cable TV, DVD, VCR. Downstairs is the family room/dining room and kitchen. In the family room is the Cable TV, DVD and VCR. We have lots of movies to choose from as well as a few games to play!

Additionally, we have 4 adult and 3 kids bikes as well as chairs, umbrellas, coolers and bogie boards in the laundry room. Jump on those bikes and ride up to the quaint shops of Duck or rent a jet ski or kayak and enjoy the sound views. Duck has tennis courts galore and loads of unique shops and restaurants. You can drive down to the Wright Brothers Memorial or visit the aquarium or many of the lighthouses around. Lots to do, but Duck is the place to stay as it has the quietness you want while on vacation with the proximity to everything!

Located in the Tides section of Duck, you will love your time in the Outer Banks by staying in Duck Soup!

About Liz and Bruce Tuck

Our family has loved this beach house. Our children are young and enjoy the hot tub right off of the kitchen as well as love having the beach right at the end of the street. We live relatively close and are able to enjoy our house in the off season.

Liz and Bruce Tuck purchased this house in 2005

Why Liz and Bruce Tuck chose Duck

Proximity to the beach- 300 yards away at the most! Private street with a fully stocked home- one of the landmarks at Duck. 'Duck Soup' is so close to the quaint village of Duck (less than 8/10 of a mile) with lots of shopping, restaurants, jet skis, boating, fishing options. The best in the Outer Banks!

What makes this house unique

Our cottage is pet friendly so you can have your precious 4 legged friend with you while you relax. You can walk to the beach and to the shops of Duck or take our bikes on the bike path and take in the sights of the Outer Banks. The sound and the ocean are minutes away!

Super clean, great amenities, close to beach in terrific community!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay in a Home Away property, and I continue to be impressed. Duck Soup was even better than the photos suggested, and the property was very clean and well-appointed. The beds were comfortable, the rooms spacious, the amenities plentiful. I needed to contact the housekeeper and the gentleman responsible for maintaining the hot tub, and these individuals were SO friendly, helpful and kind. The distance to the beach was very manageable. Being pet-friendly was a huge plus for us, as our lab usually travels with us. Overall, we are very pleased, and would definitely recommend staying at the Duck Souo property.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We love hearing that our guests are so comfortable and are having a great vacation. I sure will pass this along to the housekeeper and hot tub guy. They will be happy to hear you were pleased. Come back again soon.

Great winter weekend

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Duck in the summer for years and wanted to try a weekend in the winter. The location was PERFECT. We were very lucky with warm weather. A lot of the shops were still closed but we were able to use the bikes for a quiet morning ride for coffee. The peace and quiet was surreal. We can't wait to come back next year. Thank you!!

Great place to stay with your pet

  • 5 of 5

We book pet-friendly rentals in order to travel with our Police K9 - and Duck Soup fit the bill nicely. It was located in Duck - very near everything we needed - loved that it was a few hundred yards to the private beach access. Dogs are welcomed on the beach and we took full advantage of that. We booked off-season so the neighborhood was quiet and the atmosphere relaxed. The home is spacious with way more room than my wife and I needed. It was clean and comfortable. We booked here to be near a larger family reunion group so we didn't do much cooking since we ate meals at the other home - but this rental seemed to have everything you would need to enjoy staying in. We did use the enclosed hot tub - the cooler December temps made this a great asset. The owners responded quickly to our questions while we were there and were very accommodating. Overall, we would recommend Duck Soup for those traveling with their K9 companions. One of the best things about this rental was the enclosed yard. The home is near the busy road - yet still private due to the trees but having the fenced yard was a nice benefit and we took advantage of it. Overall, Duck Soup was a great pet-friendly place in a great location.

We enjoyed our stay. Everything was as the owner said it would be. Some minor glitches with the fridge and coffee pot, but no big deal.
