About Erik and Shauna Pickering

We live in Rowayton, Connecticut and love vacationing with our children Duck.

Erik and Shauna Pickering purchased this house in 2010

Why Erik and Shauna Pickering chose Duck

We have been vacationing in Duck for over 12 years and when we moved from California to the East Coast, we began the search for a vacation home here. We fell in love with our house and neighborhood, Schooner Ridge. We updated basically everything - beds, furniture, and electronics, and we can't get down there enough - we love it!

What makes this house unique

Rendezvous has a spectacular location- only 176 yards away from the beach and right in heart of town.

Everything and MORE!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely gorgeous. We booked this house for our long needed family vacation. Our daughter had just graduated college and we wanted to do something as a family before she ventures off into the real world. This house was everything we wanted, expected and more. There were only 3 of us, but we loved having the extra space. Space was plentiful, we were able to find private spaces to attend classes and work remotely without disturbing each other. We did spend most of the time on the third level. The family room, kitchen and dining area are so welcoming and comfortable.

The pictures do not do this house justice! It is BEAUTIFUL, pristine condition inside and out, and well stocked for all of your needs.The pool and hot tub were huge perks for us, we were in them every day and evening. The hammocks on the middle deck are a also real nice touch! We did find ourselves on the upper deck most of the time. You can actually sit outside and hear the ocean waves, watch the sun rise and sunset.

The location to the town of Duck is just an easy 6 min walk, yes we timed it. The beach seemed closer than 175 yards, an easy walk with cooler and chairs, about 2 min walk. We had no need to use the community pools. We are beach/ocean lovers. All chairs and umbrellas were supplied, as well as beach toys and boogie boards.

Because it was off season, many stores and restaurants closed early. We found that out right away and made shopping/dinner plans around that. This was by far our best family vacation in years!!

Perfect for a large gathering

  • 5 of 5

We loved so many things about this well appointed and clean home. The location was great - easy walk to the beach or town. The huge pool was used daily by all 17 of us and the hot tub each evening. Plenty of beds for our 8 grand-kids and the 9 adults. The kitchen has everything you need - we cooked and ate almost all our meals in since trying to seat 17 people in a restaurant sounded daunting. The double picnic tables on the deck got a lot of use. Each deck had lots of seating options to find a quiet retreat or to hide from the sun for a while. And somehow there were NO MOSQUITOES!! That was a really nice bonus. Erik & Shauna were extremely quick to answer any questions or help us problem solve - great hosts! If and when we come to the Outer Banks again, we will look to return to Rendezvous. Thank you so much for sharing your great home that provided us with so many happy memories! Marilynn

Lovely home, great location

  • 5 of 5

The home appears to have been recently updated, giving a very tranquil and pleasing atmosphere. The location is fabulous, just a couple minutes’ walk to the beach and about 8-10 minutes’ walk to the heart of Duck. Nice, private pool area and hot tub. The owners were responsive and friendly. Wish we could’ve stayed longer!

Perfect Girls Weekend Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a girls weekend getaway and had the best time! The house is really comfortable and fits a large number of people well, without feeling cramped or crowded! Not only are there enough rooms, there is more than enough living space (both inside and outside) to let people lounge and hang out comfortably. The house has everything you need and the location couldn't be better. Walking distance to the beach, close to restaurants and centrally located if you wanted to go anywhere else in the area. We will certainly be back!
