About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Relax at the Belvedere and never leave Duck! Less than 1/5 mile walk to beach, shopping, restaurants, activities, and entertainment! Watch the sunrise over the beach and the sunset over the sound as you relax on one of two wrap-around decks. We hope that you love this house as much as we do. Our two master suites, each with its own balcony, provide privacy and lovely views. The whimsically painted kids room sleeps 4 (one bunk=1 twin & 1 double plus an extra twin) and shares a bath with what our daughter nicknames the Ladybug Room which has a queen bed and a fun ladybug theme. Need more space? Our downstairs den has a futon bed, TV, DVD player, and a private bath. Don't feel like walking? Ride one of our 4 bikes to the beach or on Duck's miles of paved bike paths.

Our home is rented to family groups only (no exceptions) with adult occupancy limited to 10, total occupancy 12 guests.

Check in/out day is Sunday. There is no Saturday check in/out.

Linens are available upon request for an additional fee.

About The Owner

I am a small business owner living with my family in Stafford, VA.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Duck

My wife and I met in Duck and were married at the Methodist Church in Duck! As a child my wife spent her summers there, so it seemed like a logical choice for a vacation home. Duck is special to us, and it is very family friendly, especially our location. No major roads have to be crossed to get to the beach or the shopping and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Our home is ideally located on one of the best streets in Duck. Most of the homes were built within the last 13 years, so all the proerties are relatively new. We enjoy the comfort of knowing our children can ride their bikes to the beach without encountering major roads and traffic. Morning coffee in the rocking chairs on the deck is one of our favorite rituals, along with sunset walks to the ice cream shop close by. Our natural 'beachy' lawn is always a hit with kids who never can seem to get enough of digging in the sand, and the 2 live oaks on the back of the property are our pride and joy.

Plenty of room on a great street near the beach and shopping.

  • 4 of 5

I give the Belvedere 4 stars instead of 5 because overall the pluses outweigh the negatives. The distance to the beach is accurate at 1/5 of a mile , so that is a just a short walk, and in the other direction it's another short walk to the Scarborough shopping village. Many good coffee shops restaurants and boardwalk type stores. Great location! The house itself is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. There were a few issues that needed to be addressed but all in all we really enjoyed our stay. I would suggest getting unlimited data from your cell phone carrier prior to your arrival because the wifi is virtually impossible to connect to. Or you could leave the computer and phone behind and truly relax at this lovely vacation spot.

You can walk to everything!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place on the outer banks that you can walk to everything, this is the place. Easy stroll to the beach, restaurants and shopping in Duck. Loved it! You can also just stay put and hang out in the house. It is more than enough for a family of 5 or more. The only thing that was an obstacle was access to the community pool. This is a known issue and just requires some messing with the door lock code. Perhaps the HOA will fix it. Also, please note as stated in the description the WIFI is not good for streaming. I would just plan on using your cell phone as a personal hotspot if you need it. The reception at the house is excellent for Verizon and ATT so no worries about being out of contact if you have those carriers. I was able to work continuously for three days while I was there. I had myself set up on the lower deck with a nice cross breeze! The owner was very responsive. The house was clean when we arrived and the decks were just wonderful. Everyone was able to hideaway outside if they wanted to. Would recommend to friends and return if visiting Duck in the future. Thank you for a relaxing stay!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The house is in great location and is halfway between the bay side and the ocean. The house is nice and very clean. It is very well maintained and has excellent views and a variety of decks to enjoy the outdoors.It is within an easy walk to some great restaurants and coffe shops,This was at least out 12th stay in a VRBO location. The biggest negative was the lack of toiletries (soaps), garbage bags, dish towels, dish soap,and dish rags..This was our first rental that lacked these amenities. It was also our first location that we had to provide our own linens.

Wonderful family beach vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Duck at the Belvedere. It's situated in a lovely neighborhood, very close to downtown Duck. It's a short walk to the beach and the owners are were so kind to lend out their chairs and a wagon for transporting items there. We enjoyed walking down to the shops and ice cream parlors and riding bikes on the bike path that goes through town.

We had 7 people and had plenty of space and beds. The house does indeed have wonderful views and was very clean and well appointed. I would highly reccomend this house for your family vacation.

The only draw-back was having to furnish our own towels and linens but there are services down there that make those rentals easy.
