About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy ocean views from this charming beach house in Duck. Only 1.5 miles to downtown Duck, with paved bike paths to lead the way. Relax in this tastefully decorated home on a quiet, dead-end street with an easy walk to the beach or sound. Sit back on the large covered porch or in the beautiful 7-person hot tub, listening to your favorite music through the outdoor speakers (new in 2015). The entire exterior was updated in December 2015, with hurricane force windproof siding and beautiful vinyl railings. At the same time, 2 additional windows were added to the dining room to provide more light throughout the living area. A pass-through between the living and dining rooms was also added in December 2015 for a more open concept on the main floor. Each bedroom has its own flat screen HD TV and Bluray/DVD player. The house is outfitted with HD Cable TV and high speed wireless internet. Unwind in this very comfortable home before strolling to the neighborhood's sound access to view the sunset in the evening. This is truly the ideal home for the perfect family vacation.

In January 2015, we, the owners, decided to take over the management of the property from the previous management company. We had an extremely successful year, and thoroughly enjoyed interacting with our guests! In the fall of 2015, we did some major renovations on the exterior and interior of Dream Inn of Duck.

-New lighting and ceiling fans throughout the house.
-Interior completely repainted.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We purchased the house in October 2012, and in December 2012 we began major renovations on the house. The previous owners had replaced a few things in the house (new roof and appliances), but many aspects of the house needed updating. The stairs leading to the front porch and most of the windows were the first things to be replaced. We then proceeded to change just about everything else on the interior of the house. We updated not only the physical interior, but also purchased new furniture for the entire home. We furnished the property as if we were vacationing in it, and tried to include every convenience that we would want if we were the guests. In December 2014, we decided to assume responsibility for managing rentals. Prior to 2014 statistics are for our previous property management company. We will do our best to respond within a day of your inquiry.

Why the Owner Chose Duck, NC, USA:
The house is built on top of a dune that runs through the Outer Banks around Duck. It had beautiful views of both the ocean and the sound from the front porch, and at night, you can hear the waves! We had been vacationing on the Outer Banks for many years and found the Village of Duck to be one of our favorites. It is a very family-oriented community, and offers not only beautiful beaches, but a quaint village in which to dine and shop.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We offer a 5% discount to military or repeat guests! We value your choosing Dream Inn of Duck for your vacation and your service.
