3 bedroom, 3 1/2 baths, Ocean & Sound Views
Situated high above the Town of Duck, sits this lovely 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home with both ocean and sound views. The homes' location, sitting atop a hill which overlooks many well-known landmarks on Duck Road, is convenient to all the Town and surrounding areas on OBX have to offer. Several pine trees on the property provide not only shade for the picnic area, but also privacy from neighboring homes and businesses. Sunsets are always a treat on the Outer Banks, and even more so in Duck Overlookin', as you can view beautiful sunsets over Currituck Sound from inside or outside the house.

The 4-person surrey bike, which has provided 5 years of fun, has been retired, mostly due to the harsh salt air and elements. In its place are two brand new (2018) tandem beach cruisers, which will provide a quick pedal to the beach, and will also allow easier travel up and down the steep hill to Duck Road.
We look forward to hosting your OBX/Duck vacation!

Wonderful house in a terrific location.
We stayed at Duck Overlookin in July 2017. My entire family loved the house and the location. The house was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen had plenty of dinnerware, glasses, utensils and pots and pans. The house is listed as 3 bedrooms, however there is an extra room that has two sets of bunk beds. The living area is on the third floor. It is very spacious and comfortable with a view of the sound. The decks had comfortable chairs and a hammock swing that we enjoyed every morning. They provided beach chairs, a surrey bike and two additional bikes for our use. We really enjoyed riding the bikes around the neighborhood. The neighborhood pool and clubhouse were terrific. They had several events throughout the week that we enjoyed. We were thrilled that the owner allowed us to bring our family pet.
The location was terrific. It was a short distance to the beach, however, if we didn't want to walk or ride the bikes, we could drive to a small neighborhood parking area that was just a few feet from the oceanfront. The house is located just a block from the boardwalk and the sound. The boardwalk has stunning views of the sound and there are many water activities to choose from. There are terrific shops and restaurants along the boardwalk. Many restaurants, a small seafood store, vegetable stand and deli were located within a block of the house.
The Elan Vacations group was very helpful throughout the whole process. We had one bike tire that needed to be repaired and they responded very quickly. As mentioned before, the house was very clean and kept up very well.
My entire family has decided that we will would like to rent this house again next year. We had a terrific experience at Duck Overlookin!
Family from Richmond, VA Enjoying this Home Two Years in a Row!
We have been coming to the Outer Banks for our summer vacation for the past 30 years. Duck Overlookin' has been one of our favorite homes. In fact, we enjoyed this home for two weeks last summer and booked it right away for the following summer. It is in the most perfect location! We love the beautiful view of the sound from the top floor of the home. The bikes and four person bike is great for a ride to the oceanfront. Schooner Ridge is a wonderful community with oceanfront pool, lifeguard, community center with indoor pool and tennis courts. The restaurants in the Duck area are the best! We love Red Sky Café. We also enjoy walking from the cottage to the sound access in the beautiful soundside park in Duck.
The layout of the cottage is perfect! The hot tub area outside is very nice for relaxing in the evening. Our teenagers enjoy the first floor with the game room. The master bedroom on the 2nd level is huge with a lovely master bath. The other master bedroom has a beautiful view from the deck and we enjoyed sitting out there on the swing. The kids loved the cozy bunk room. The kitchen has everything that you can imagine. My brother is a personal chef from Charleston, SC and he loved the kitchen too. The family room has a great TV and very comfortable sofa. We enjoyed watching movies for our nightly evening movie nights. Another wonderful feature of this home is that the owners allow dogs. We really appreciate it! Schooner Ridge is a perfect community to walk your dogs with the lovely large trees for shade.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful beach home with us! We are looking forward to our two week vacation in July and will book it again for Summer 2016!
