We live in Columbia, MD. My husband is a structural engineer and I am an anesthesiologist. We have two daughters, one lives in Vancouver and the other is a registered nurse in Baltimore, MD. We all love the beach and water sports.
Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Owner chose Duck
We discovered Duck over 20 years ago and kept coming back every chance we got. We always rented a house on the sound side because we love to windsurf and it was easy to access the water. We love our location in Duck because of the beautiful sunsets on the sound, and it is only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Ships Watch community has great amenities including a great pool and tennis courts.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the sound side location of our house.The sunsets you can watch from the deck are incredible! The Sunset Grill Restaurant is a close walk from our house and Tommie's Market is very convenient for shopping. Attached to the Sunset Grill Restaurant is a Jet Ski and Parasailing rental place.

What a view and location!!!
I would recommend this place to anyone. Owner Ella is great and she stays in touch with you through the whole process and beyond. House is nice and very spacious. Thank you and we will consider this house again in the future.
Fab vacay for all members of our 3 generation family! Perched on the Sound & perfectly appointed.
Fabulous beach vacation. We can't imagine a better stay. The owners of the Croatoan have covered every detail. From the kayaks to the Portmeirion this house is practically and tastefully appointed. Ideally located in a friendly beach community with kind staff and thoughtful activities for kids and adults. We were a short walk to the pier (pulling up crabs was a hit!), the swimming pool, and the beach. I also enjoyed the walk into town to shop along Duck's boardwalk and the short walk to the tasty Blue Point restaurant. Back at the house we enjoyed the surrounding nature, the Osprey, geese, and exotic insects! We appreciated use of the beach gear (umbrellas, chairs, cooler, kids sandcastle kits). The owners really have thought of everything. Thank you so much. We hope to return next year!
Lovely home on the sound.
We truly enjoyed our week in this lovely house on the sound. We had mixed weather, but managed to catch a few beautiful sunsets on the deck. Having bikes and kayaks available was a bonus. We plan to return next summer, hopefully for a longer stay.
The Croatoan was so clean and inviting!
The Croatoan was amazing! The house was so immaculately maintained and comfortable that we ended up staying in each night. We enjoyed fantastic sunsets and homecooked meals each night because we just couldn't bring ourselves to leave this beautiful home! The access to the sound was so enjoyable, some days we didn't make it to the beach until 4:00 or 5:00 pm as we would spend the whole afternoon playing in the sound with the provided kayaks and paddle board. Going to the beach was an easy 10 minute walk and the perks of the community setting where very enjoyable. We will definitely be returning to this perfect home in Duck!
Outstanding home located on the best spot in Duck!
Every year gets better, and our fifth year at the Croaton House was AMAZING. Each season's house improvement is meticulous. The kitchen supplies are top notched, you need not bring cooking utensils. The rooms are spacious and clean with a calming view. The screened porch is my favorite, you can eat all meals and watch the water. The location is centrally located to all sites. The owners are genuinely the kindest, most helpful couple. Thank you for sharing your fabulous home with my family and allowing us to continue to make memories of a lifetime.
Feels like home
Our third year at Croatoan is just as perfect as the first. Beautifully appointed with comfortable furnishings and a kitchen loaded with beautiful dishes and plenty of cookware. Perfect WiFi access throughout. Fantastic view of the sound. I struggle with mobility issues, so the one level living is perfect. Once I'm in the house, every part of it is accessible, unlike most beach rentals out there.
Thank you for making this beautiful home available!
