Why Susan chose Duck

Duck, NC is a very quaint beach community surrounded by the sound on 1 side and the ocean on the other. Oodles of shops for meandering and shopping.

What makes this house unique

Sitting in your living room, dining room and kitchen and seeing nothing but the ocean water is just like being on a cruise ship. Elevator goes to ground floor with exterior access. No steps necessary. 1 king bedroom/bath features handicap accessible doors with roll up sink and walking shower. All beds have memory foam toppers for added comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As owners of this amazing house, we are pleased to share our beach home with you. After owning a 1960 beach house on this land for 8 years, we decided it was time to truly enjoy the property and views and decided to rebuild a home worthy of the location. The name stayed the same "The Sand Box" but everything else is gloriously new. We worked closely with the builder on every detail to ensure that the home is the best that it can be. Things like tiled bathrooms, hard wood floors, granite counters, insulated interior walls for maximum privacy, outdoor speakers, and the list goes on and on.

We feel strongly that your vacation in our home will exceed any expectations that you place on your holiday.

Great location, great size, great vacation

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property, for the most part. The house needs furniture updates, especially in the common areas as it is obvious many have used it. Mattresses are noisy getting in and out of bed because they are old/used a lot. Additionally, there is rust on the bathroom fixtures in some areas. The yard is not well maintained, at least during our week. Grass needs mowing, bushes trimmed near walkway, etc. I know these all seem like nit picking but when paying top dollar, one expects top quality.

Exquisite Ocean Front Vacation Home, Charming Location in Duck, NC

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at several beaches along the Carolina coast, each are enticing in their own ways. Duck is a beautiful and peaceful location with plenty of things to see and do even when the weather doesn't cooperate. I highly recommend seeing the Wild Mustangs of Corolla. The Sand Box is a lovely, comfortable home with spectacular ocean views. The sunrises over the Atlantic are always amazing. I've never seen so many dolphins jumping in the waves. There was plenty of space for our family, and the elevator made life easier for our disabled daughter. We were only able to use the awesome pool for a short time due to the cool weather, but I know it would be appreciated on hot days. We will definitely be returning to Duck in the future and hope to stay at The Sand Box again-it really felt like home.

Wonderful, memory filled beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was wonderful! Everything is true to the listing. Plenty of room and parking for multiple vehicles. The kitchen was adequately stocked with anything you would need to prep meals from pots and pans to strainers and blenders. The elevator accessibility and use of the pool were a big plus for us! Beautiful views and conveniently located for shopping and site seeing. The owner was very nice to work with and responded in a timely manner. Thank you for the use of your lovely home Sandy. Lots of memories for us to cherish. We would definitely rent here again!

Favorite Rental to Date!

  • 5 of 5

Our seventh visit to the OBX and this rental is our favorite! We love Duck - perfect location; nice to be able to walk to the Duck Cottage for a morning coffee. The house itself has a very efficient layout; the exterior decks/stairways so nicely designed - easy to get from one floor to another; to the pool; and best of all to the beach! The views are incredible; a true family vacation by the ocean! **We really enjoyed the raised chairs on the upper deck! Highly recommend and thanks for sharing your home!
