Why Patricia Oliver chose Duck

I always wanted to live near the ocean and this home affords me ocean views from my top deck and the ocean access walkway is so close that I take my morning tea to the walkway steps each morning to start my day. When you're so close to the beach, it's a no brainer to take that refreshing walk on the beach every day. Keeps me feeling healthy.

What makes this cottage unique

The community of Sanderling is sought after for its close proximity to the Sanderling Resort and Spa. It's also known as a bird sanctuary with nature paths and a bike path. Although quiet and relaxing, with the town of Duck three miles away you are close to some of the best restaurants and shops on the Outer Banks. The town offers yoga and pilates on the town green plus events daily in the park. There's a town boardwalk that spans the sound waterfront shops in the town proper.

Exceptional Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a lovely beach home in Sanderling, just north of Duck. It is a short walk to the beach, and adjacent to the Nature Walk in Sanderling. The decor is relaxing and beautifully maintained. Every amenity was available. We felt at home and had an excellent week, even with a couple of rainy days. The owner's close attention to every detail makes the difference.

A Perfect 10!

  • 5 of 5

This charming beach cottage is in a great location; it is even nicer in person than in the photos; and the owner is great too. This was our first time renting through VRBO and staying in this property, although we had stayed in Sanderling a number of times before, and always had a wonderful time. We're already looking forward to our return stay here next summer.

We could not have had a better rental experience! The owner is very responsive and thoughtful; the property is amazingly well cared for; and the home is tastefully decorated and exceptionally well-equipped. From the moment we first walked in the door it felt like we were in the home of a close friend who had anticipated our every need and want rather than in a rental property. Even the towels and bed linens are exceptionally good quality and the floor plan is ideal with all the bedrooms on the first floor, the living space on the second floor and plenty of outdoor living space as well. We feel very fortunate to have found this beach cottage; we hope to return for many years to come!

"Sweet Time Away" !

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cottage was lovely. It was spotless, well equipped, close to the beach and near many good restaurants, activities and shopping.

Though the weather was iffy, we took comfort in the warmth and peacefulness that the

beach house offered.

Pat was wonderful to work with. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again next season !

Another relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

For our 3rd annual stay at this beach house, we once again had a most enjoyable time. Renters at a house nearby noted to us what a great house we were staying in and that the rates were very reasonable (we felt very lucky:). I feel very attached to the house, and love seeing the pictures of my son growing up with it in the background. Duck holds many childhood memories for me, and I would recommend this area of Sandbridge to anyone. Biking to the village is very easy and fun to do early in the morning to get coffee at the local bookstore. We will definately be back to make more memories!

Owner's Response: I love having you guys back, you're like family! Looking forward to next year's "swing" photo. For people reading this review, the Sandbridge reference is supposed to be Sanderling. I think that was a typo since Sandbridge is in VA. and my cottage is in the Sanderling subdivision of Duck.

Wonderful Vacation Home for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful stay. We've been coming to Duck and Corolla for nine years and this cottage was by far the best we've stayed in. Everything was just lovely. We truly felt like we were the owner's special guests. I think we used every appliance, pot and pan in the amazing kitchen! We will definitely be back. We appreciated all the wonderful suggestions of activities and restaurants. Our boys loved the Duck magic show especiallly because our youngest was chosen to come on stage to be "levitated" during the show. What a riot. Thanks again, can't wait until next summer!

Owner's Response: Kathryn: Reviews like yours make "renting" fun. I'll be thinking of you when I kitchen shop this winter. I'm so glad that you and your family will be returning in 2015. Pat

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I dropped our last child at college and took a week at the beach for just us. This cottage was perfect. We have stayed in the OBX at various homes over the past twenty years and this was hands down the best appointed cottage. It is beautifully decorated, spotless, has beautiful decks and a relaxing hammock and swing. The kitchen is the best outfitted kitchen of any beach house we have ever been in. It lacked nothing and I like to cook! Top it off with great views (easy beach access) and an incredible week of weather, we could not have had a better vacation. I cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: I'm also anxious for you to return, Lorie. You left the cottage spotless. The cleaners said they diddn't think anyone had been there. I was glad to hear that you made good use of the Sanderling pool. It's getting a little too cool to use these days, unless you're swimming laps! Thank you for the great review.
