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 Northern Coast & Outer Banks

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.

This house was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Close to beach and town.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this house during the Christmas Holidays. It is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. Very convenient beach access and could walk or ride bikes to shops and restaurants in Duck. Access to the community center indoor pool and game room was a real plus for the grandkids. Looking forward to staying there again.

Location is Perfect & Bigger Than It Looks

  • 5 of 5

Our travelling party included 2 grandparents, 4 parents and 7 children (ages 6 to 12). The location is perfect! Both the beach and the community center were a QUICK walk and the community center amenities helped keep the kids occupied as it was too chilly to swim in the ocean. The speed bumps throughout kept all of the cars driving slowly and therefore the kids were safe to ride their bikes throughout. The walk into Duck is so quick and we really took advantage of being able to walk to shops, Duck Town Park and Boardwalk, restaurants, Duck Donuts, Wee Winks, etc.

The owners have put a lot of time (and money) into ensuring the house is furnished in a way that will make the guests feel comfortable. There are ample dishes, silverware, cookware and glassware for the number of guests the house will accommodate. There are games, movies, to satisfy guests of various ages. The bedrooms were comfortable and some had updated bedding from when the pictures were taken. We really appreciated having a second refrigerator on the first level. Overall, I would say the house felt larger than it looked in the pictures -- especially the eating area and living room on the 3rd floor. Having a "living space" on all three levels was so helpful considering we had three age groups.

Considering the time of year, we didn't get to take advantage of the outdoor pool, but it looked nice! We did enjoy the hot tub a bit. There were plenty of umbrellas, chairs, sand toys, etc. to borrow if you don't want to bring yours along. And, plenty of spaces to sit outside including 2 picnic tables, adirondack chairs, a hammock, etc.

The house was well equipped for babies, too. Though our children are a little older, I noticed a high chair, booster seat, gate, Pack & Plays and a stroller. Also, there is a small room that adjoins the king sized rooms on the middle level that would have been perfect for an infant or a toddler who needed to be close.

Erik was very responsive to the questions I emailed in advance of our trip which made planning easier! I appreciated his quick and honest feedback! We appreciate the attention to detail they have paid to Rendezvous.

Excellent Duck Experience

  • 5 of 5

Rendezvous is in the great neighborhood of Schooner Ridge in Duck. The community amenities are super: fitness center far above expectations (several rooms-- free weights and all the circuit you want; recumbent bikes, eliptical, treadmill great condition; ); beach access so easy-- not like Corolla and 60 steps over dunes. Loved 3 pools. Everything about the description you read is accurate. Have stayed/visited many properties and this one screams owner cares. Not brand new, but many many improvements. Kitchen perfectly outfitted. Private spaces galore. Our workaholic kids/adults could escape to a nice work area on each floor. All furnishings very nice. Pickerings responded in minutes to all calls/text questions. Such a treat not dealing with a middleman or unresponsive realtor. Just needed a view of ocean, but the treed, private setting, and easy access made up. For adults: Blue Point, Aqua and Paper Canoe recommended. For kids: go to coastal cravings (walking distance) and get takeout for picnic tables by evening music and lawn games. Pricey, but great way to sit with adult beverage and watch young ones burn off energy.
