About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed every single second of our vacation. Kayaking, surfing, swimming, eating, drinking, kite flying, fishing, etc... the list goes on. The home was perfectly appointed with absolutely everything we needed!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Incredible home and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini-family reunion here and we couldn't have asked for more. The house was perfect for our needs - each of us could do what we wanted during the day, then we came together each evening at the large table for family dinner. Morning coffee on the deck listening to waves, a short bike ride to the ocean, a charming town - it was perfect. The hosts were tremendously gracious and accommodating - thank you for making it such a memorable trip for us!

6 STAR PLUS!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at 'home.' The house is very clean and very well maintained. Owner provides so many extra touches from dishes, to bedding, to furniture and decor, outside extra's, etc(too many to mention) that make this rental very comfortable to relax in -the way a vacation should be! The location is fantastic.Back yard access to fishing dock and kayaking in the Sound. Easy walking access to beach and Duck. The beautiful peaceful view of the Sound from inside the house(endless window views) and the deck make the rental a piece of heaven! We loved this rental so much we didn't want to give it a review because we want to keep it a secret! However, the owners definitely deserves the review!!! My husband's only request...more fish in the sound!!!(owner figures that one out we will give it a 20 star!)

Absoultely WONDERFUL Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this beautiful home and once again, it did not disappoint. The house is furnished comfortably and very clean. This summer was a bad year for spiders outside, but it was nothing a little sweeping couldn't take care of quickly.

The layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms make this home perfect for families to share. We were 2 families (4 adults, 4 children). Since we were travelling with an almost walking baby, it was much appreciated to have the pack n play and highchair waiting there for us. The home was also easy to baby proof (no need to worry about steps, etc). The older children LOVED riding their bikes (which we brought; adult bikes were already there available for our use) on the large, flat and private driveway. And we all enjoyed use of the kayaks and backyard hammock! Of course, use of the beach umbrellas and chairs were very helpful. As a runner, I greatly appreciated the running/bike path that runs through Duck. Being able to walk into town safely for a delicious dinner & drinks, or even some shopping, is icing on the cake.

But you just can't beat stepping on the large deck to watch amazing sunsets over the sound every night. And at night, the star gazing is beautiful (we were lucky enough to even catch a meteor shower). Most of the time, we forgot there were other homes nearby as this location is very private.
