About Carmen Morel/owner

Carmen and Chuck welcome you to a little piece of heaven. The first visit we made to the outer banks the quaint little town of Duck designed for family vacation captured our hearts. In this very small community all the sub-divisions located on the east (Beach Side) and on the West side (Currituck Sound) have private access to the beach and sound for owners and their guests. Within two years we bought our Carmel Cottage. We hope you feel the same way about our paradise found. We hope you find Carmel to be a place of rest, healing, renewal and good memories.

Carmen Morel/owner purchased this house in 2012

The property was excellent! Very clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

The property has ample space for multiple families and a beautiful view! Access to the beach, dock, and pool is very close and convenient (very easy to access)! The house is well stocked with entertainment as well, indoor games, outdoor activities, and nets for crabbing. The homeowners were easily reachable when we had questions either by email or phone. Overall we had a wonderful vacation and would recommend to other potential renters.

Great House in Duck!

  • 5 of 5

This house was in a great location and was within walking distance to the beach and the sound. The house was clean and had plenty of space for five adults and two children. The views from the top deck were amazing! The pool was perfect and so was the area. The owner is quick to respond to any emails. We had a great vacation and would definitely rent this house again!

Quiet location with a nice pool nearby

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a quiet spot away from the main drag in Duck. Even though it is not on the water, we had views of the sound and the ocean. The house had a washer/dryer which we used, and the kitchen is well stocked. Bring your own paper products (e.g.,toilet paper) and soap. The layout is nice with the all the bedrooms on the same floor. There is a volleyball court and the pool is very close. They have chairs and umbrellas at the house that we took to the beach - a must have in the hot sun, so they were very much appreciated. The beach is nearby but not close enough to walk to in 90 degree heat without a cart to lug the chairs, food, and umbrellas. We did not find a cart at the property so we drove. Parking near the beach is limited so get there early. Or, better yet, drive down to the Hatteras seashore for a nicer beach with restrooms, showers, and changing rooms. We enjoyed a walk on Duck's boardwalk on the sound side (< 1 mile), and the Duck Donuts are delicious. The drive to Kitty Hawk or Corolla for sight seeing is short, but allow for extra drive time on Saturdays and Sundays when the traffic on the main road is very heavy.

Overall, the quality was right for the price. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great stay in Duck!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful property. The home was spacious with good furnishings and a well-equipped kitchen. The proximity to the beach and the town of Duck was just perfect. This a very reasonably priced home for the experience. Wonderful views. The property is clean and well cared for. The owner was quick to respond to email messages. I would certainly recommend this property to families of 4-8.

Amazing week in this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week staying in this home. It was our first time visiting the OBX and can honestly say we will continue to go back every summer. The house was in a perfect location and was equipped with everything we could have possibly needed. The owner was so friendly and accommodating. The house was spotless and spacious. The views from the upper deck were so beautiful! We so enjoyed our stay here and are so sad to be home. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a reasonably priced beautiful home to stay in for the week. We can't wait until next summer!!
