About Al

We started going to the outer banks in the early 1980's before we had children and then continued to vacation there with family. We purchased this home so we have a place to go a week or so every year, and a place where our extended families can gather to vacation together.

Al purchased this house in 2011

Why Al chose Duck

We purchased this home because of the quality of construction, unique floor plan that is very 'homey', and just as important its location - walking distance to the village of Duck, and the Ocean.

What makes this house unique

I didn't understand the need for a nice pool while at a beach house - until I stayed at Driftin' South. The pool is large, and accessible from almost all the rear decking. It's very nice, and a great gathering place for family and friends.

Wonderful, Relaxing & Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home. It is wonderfully decorated & clean. It's just a short pleasant walk to the beach and a mere 3 minute drive into the shops of Duck. We definitely would love to come again to this inviting home.

We had an assortment of ages (from Tweens to young adults & parents) in our group and all were happy with the offerings. A nice cozy TV area & pool table on the lower level entertained the late nighters while not disturbing the early to bed folks. The pool & hot tub were delightful.

Good times at Driftin' South!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 & friends of ours, family of 3 rented this beautifully maintained home this past June. The home exceeded our expectations. A short walk to the beach, a short walk downtown for restaurant dining & beach shopping! Outdoor pool which the kids enjoyed. Hot Tub for the adults!! Plenty of room for multiple friends & family. You can tell there is significant pride in ownership of this home. We will rent Driftin' South again!!

Awesome vacation to the outer banks

  • 5 of 5

We did a lot of research in the surrounding area before deciding on Driftin' South. The owner was great to work with. When we mentioned that we had a 10 month old, he offered to buy a high chair for the house which was really convenient. The house is a short walk to both the beach and downtown. The walk to the beach was just down the road that the house is on, so you don't even have to cross any roads. It has been a couple of months since our vacation, and we're still talking about how great it was!

Better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

I contacted the owner of this house because I was looking to rent a place with four of my friends and most vacation rental agencies state "Families Only". My friends and I take a motorcycle trip every year to different places. This year it was to the outer banks. The owner advised me that he did not have a problem renting to me and my friends so I booked the house through the property manager. The process was very simple. The ladies in the office were very knowledgeable and helped me with any questions that I had.

Upon arrival, the check-in process was quick and easy. When we arrived at the house, we could not believe our eyes. The pictures on this site do not show how truly beautiful this house really is. The rooms were a lot larger than pictured.

My favorite areas of the house was the open kitchen/ dining room/ living room area. Everyone could converse and watch TV while still preparing dinner. During the day we would enjoy the large pool and the evening we would play pool. Tv's and stereo's through out the house were a plus.

Plenty of parking and a short walk to the beach and local shops.

I would definitely rent this house again should I be visiting the Outer Banks area.

Owner's Response: I am glad Keith and his friends enjoyed themselves. While I don't typically rent to a non-family group, a personal phone conversation goes a long way in understanding that four adult men wanted a quality home to stay in for their annual vacation.

Multiple Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect family vacation. Everyone between the ages of 12 weeks and 86 years had a fabulous week. The listing description is most accurate and the photos are true to life. The realty is a short distance from the house to pick up and drop off the keys. The house is very inviting, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen, dinning room and great room combination is perfect for entertaining a large group. The property is clean and very well maintained. Rain or shine there is something to do for everyone--swimming, walking, biking, shopping, eating, reading or just relaxing.

Our families traveled from New Jersey, Florida, Alabama and Georgia. The accommodations and location more than met our expectations that we are all planning on doing it exactly the same next year.
