What makes this house unique

The Outer Banks of North Carolina truly offer something for everyone. Whether you are admiring the views from atop the Currituck, Bodie Island, or Hatteras lighthouses, watching wild horses splash in the surf, climbing the giant sand dunes in Jockey's Ridge State Park, visiting the Wright Brother's Memorial, fishing, cycling, kayaking, shopping or just relaxing by the pool with a good book, you will easily find the excitement, adventure or tranquility you are seeking.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was a great home for my entire family - it was a great way to celebrate my 70th birthday with my family. They all enjoyed it.

House was a Jewel

  • 4 of 5

The Jewel of Denial is a great home in Duck that is nicely appointed, full of nice features (even labeled) and best of all CLEAN. After 40 weeks of rentals in OBX, it was nice to get a home that was in such great condition. Super clean kitchen that had outstanding features, eating and cooking wear and lots of space. Leisure spaces were pretty new and the electronics were in great shape (nice TVs, high end stereo and fast internet). We only used 5 of the 8 bedrooms and they were all just fine. Washer was new and worked great. Only thing that would make things 105% awesome would be a better ice cube maker as the refrig could not keep up to demand and hot tub jet performance needs attention.

Management company was great to work with and we were treated with 2 fruit pies (still warm) mid week. Nice touch and appreciated. Had a great visit and the Four Seasons sub was wonderful with nice pools, beach access and other services. See you next year.

Jewel of denial review

  • 5 of 5

. We have been going to the OBX for 20 years and we have tried a lot of homes. Without a doubt this was Absolutely one of the best houses we've ever rented. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms were spacious (which is usually not the case), the yard was very nice, the pool was great and lots of little touches made the house amazing.

Jewel is a FAVORITE!

  • 5 of 5

After such a great experience last summer with our large extended family, we decided that there is no better vacation spot than Jewel of Denial. We were determined to go back this summer! We recently returned from our second stay, this time with four families, all with young children. The personal touches from the owner, as well as all the amenities the Four Seasons Community has to offer, make this the perfect place to vacation. The home offers plenty of space for a large group to spread out or gather together as desired, and is very well maintained. Being so close to the beach and just a short walk/bike ride away from the town of Duck, shopping & boardwalk makes this a fantastic location. We can't wait to get back to Jewel.

1st time in Duck

  • 4 of 5

Our large group had a really nice time in this home! Pros: Tons of space, lots of TVs, large dining table, beach supplies provided (chairs, wagon, sand toys), close to town, close to beach (walkable or you can drive the short distance). The kitchen was well equipped (we did a lot of cooking). There is a nice green space for outdoor games in the backyard and the pool is a decent size. Cons: The home needs updating especially the rug running throughout and the bathroom and linens (bedspreads & towels). Ways to improve: Add a gas grill, more cable channels, more bikes, more adirondack chairs on the main deck. We really did enjoy the home and Duck but next time we will get a house that has been updated and that is on the beach.

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house. There were 11 of us total – 6 adults, and 5 children ranging in age from 10 months to 6 years. The house had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay at the beach. Something to keep in mind is that this rental has 3 stories, which means a lot of stairs. A crawling baby presents fun challenges!

The house was very clean and well-maintained. We loved the pool, the decks (with hammock and swing!), the kitchen, and the large dining table. The Ship's Watch was a favorite of the 4 year old granddaughter. It was a short walk to the club-house one direction, and a short walk to the playground, community pool, and beach access, the other direction. If you are a walker/runner, there is a nice, paved trail that runs perpendicular to the road outside the neighborhood.

The family enjoyed many trips to Duck Donuts, and had delicious dining excursions to The Blue Point, Aqua Restaurant, and The Roadside Bar and Grill.

I highly recommend this house – we hope to rent it again!

A Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Even though most people looking at beach houses are planning for a relaxing week of fun in the sun, our group of cousins stayed at the Jewel of Denial in February and we were treated to the rare sight of seeing the beach blanketed in snow! We stumbled onto this home four years ago and it has become our 'home away from home" for our annual cousins trip. This place has absolutely everything you could need to vacation in comfortable, pleasant and happy surroundings. Not only did we find all the comforts of home, it's just a short walk from the beach, has a private hot tub and plenty of room for all of us to enjoy each other or to get away from each other!

Our next visit will be our 5th time at the Jewel of Denial and we are counting the days!
