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!

Outstanding home located on the best spot in Duck!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 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!

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!)
