Why Jim Diamond chose Duck
The main road through Duck is NC Highway 12, here known as Duck Road. Duck is located 10 miles north of Kitty Hawk and is a four-and-a-half hour drive from Raleigh-Durham Airport. Duck NC cottage rentals are two hours from Norfolk (Virginia) International Airport. Once settled at your Duck vacation house, you’ll have plenty of parking space for your group’s cars, but note that Duck traffic can get a bit congested during the peak season. The paved bike trail that runs along Duck Road is a popular route for walkers and bikers. Some neighborhoods, like vacation rentals in Duck Four Seasons, have access to free trolleys that can shuttle you from your rental house to town or to the beach.Whichever species you are seeking - the live waterfowl or the carved, weathered decoys - they both abound in this soundside village so aptly named Duck. Located on the north end of the Banks, Duck remained undeveloped until the 1970's. Commercial development has been limited along Highway 12 and the community has considerable ''old beach'' charm. Named for the sheer numbers of waterfowl that once flocked here during migratory seasons, Duck has experienced exponential growth over the past ten years. Duck is a thriving year-round town as well as vacation destination. Characterized by quaint boutiques, fine dining, and a variety of water sports both on the sound and in the ocean, Duck is rapidly becoming one of the most popular beach destinations in the country.

Worth the money and it’s close to beach
yes, it is not a new house but a decent one. It is very close to beach and duck shopping. House comes with basic things and it has open layout good for 1 or 2 families
We enjoyed deck with hot tub and ocean view. It is not a great house but worth for money.
Nice Location, Great Value
This is a cozy one-level beach house. It's located in a very quiet street and you get very good views of the sound. Jim was great to work with and answered our questions thoroughly and quickly. Less than 2 miles from the Duck shopping/restaurant area and a 10-min. drive to Corolla shopping/dining area. Our family enjoyed the pool and hot-tub. Great for those on a budget!
Thanks for your nice review,This home is the most affordable rental Ocean Block,4/2 Bedroom,Private Pool/Hot Tub from Light House to Light House here in the Outerbanks,and Located in Duck,Nc/ Nothing Better! ps Active Military Discount offered.
We Enjoyed our visit to the "Nut House"
Our recent visit to the Outer Banks was made so much more enjoyable and relaxing due to this rental. Conveniently situated a few minutes both from the beach and the boardwalk in Duck, it is also conveniently close to the restaurants and other attractions further south, yet distanced from their relative hustle and bustle. The house is well laid out with all the amenities we anticipated as well some we didn't. The owner was very friendly and responsive to our questions, which is a real plus. He promptly sent back a eye glasses which I inadvertently left. We plan on returning next year and highly recommend it.Ocean block/Private Pool/Hot Tub/and views that can't be beat.
Good Location and stay
I stayed here with a group of friends and it was a good weekend.
Great location, lots of privacy, short walk to the beach, nice pool & hot tub.
Where it needs work:
Kitchen utensils needed to be replaced or at the very least we needed knives that were sharp. Unless it has gotten replaced since Fall of 2015, I'd plan on bringing sharp knives and some kitchen utensils yourself.
Would I recommend this place?
I have replaced the knives,also added 600 sq ft of Hardwood flooring also,Jim
Good location. Unreasonable owner
This was our second year renting this home and i must say we were disappointed. The house was visibly deteriorated. The hot Tub hardly worked. The internet was extremely slow and things were out dated. The positive thing about this house is that it is very close to the beach. With all the negatives, we were willing to re rent but the owner is VERY unreasonable. I would only recommend this house in early summer just because of price and location, nothing else. Otherwise there are homes in better shape with nicer owners.
I am a 20 year licensed Real Estate broker, I manage vacation properties fulltime. This house has been remodeled w/new furniture/beds/appliances/ hardwood flooring threw out. I installed the pool in 2008 w/newer hot tub. I have no control over internet speed on this remote barrier island location. I offer a discount on the rental rate for active military.If I was "unreasonable" is because I would not rent this house out for half price of the regular rental rate. Sour Grapes.I am still waiting for any proof/emails/not even a copy of the lease that this person ever stayed at my home.
Decent for the price
The property is on the same side as the ocean so kids do not have to cross the busy duck road to get to the beach and it is only a few minute walk, so quite convenient. The shower area downstairs is great so one can take the hot shower to get rid of sand before entering the house. Pool is also great for kids. Deck is comfortable. Did not try the hot tub.
Property looks little old with old style TV sets, furniture etc and the living area is little small . There are no half baths, so two full jack n jill baths is all you get.
Final Word: Good value for the money for families on budget.
All the TV's are now flat screens,1 has built in DVD,of course WIFI and Charter cable included,Jim
Duck, NC, is a great beach vacation destination with wide, sandy beaches that consistently rank in the top ten nationally. There are a lot of ways to have fun at the beach in Duck, North Carolina: try something new like parasailing or kayaking; take a sailing lesson on the Currituck Sound, take a surfing lesson, or get out on the Atlantic for deep sea fishing. Coastal Kayak Touring Company will guide you through some of the most beautiful areas in the Outer Banks; Bob’s Bait & Tackle will gear you up for fishing and can refer you to the best fishing charters and guides. Duck Outfitters rents kayaks and surf boards and can set up your group with lessons and gear. Enjoy the view and the sea air on the paved bike path that runs along Duck Road through town. Duck Municipal Park is also a great place to enjoy the outdoors – pack a picnic, watch the kids play, take a Pilates class, walk the trails, or head out on the Currituck Sound in a canoe from the park’s launch. Take a spa day
