Duck Unlimited is located in the very heart of Duck, North Carolina! This is not your typical beach home that is worn with years of rentals. This is our lovely, private home that has been designed, decorated and dutifully maintained for pure relaxation and enjoyment. We look forward to sharing it with you this summer!

Bring your family to Duck Unlimited where you can unwind, relax and play. Enjoy the pool, walk to town, play on the beach or just relax on the porch with a good book. Your children will enjoy our recreation room complete with a 27” TV and Foosball table. Schooner Ridge has many fun activities for the children including a game room (arcade games, air hockey and a pool table just to name a few) and playground for the younger children. Adults enjoy the first-class fitness facility, tennis and racquetball courts. Schooner Ridge guests have private beach access (where is lifeguard is on duty throughout the summer) with a gazebo including a beach-side pool and hot tub. On the off-chance you have a rainy day during your vacation, everyone will enjoy the indoor pool in the recreation facility.

Highlights of our home include the following:

What makes this house unique

We love the location of our home - it is by far the best location in this area! We can walk to the beach and just as easily, we can walk into the town of Duck. In Duck, we can enjoy any number of great restaurants, shops, parks and even the boardwalk.

Our subdivision is fantastic - as a resident or guest of Schooner Ridge you have access to an oceanside pool as well as two other pools, a playground, tennis courts, racquetball, fitness facilities, game room and much more.

Our location and subdivision make Duck Unlimited one of the best beach houses in the area!

Duck Unlimite = Unlimited Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Duck Unlimited couldn't have been better. Augie is an excellent landlord/owner and was available and accommodating to us at every stage of the trip. The house is large, comfortable and clean. We had 6 adults and 2 children (3 years and 10 months) and we never felt crowded. The pictures on the website are accurate so there are no hidden surprises. My 3 sisters and their families were also renting in Duck and this house was able to fit all of us (24) for dinners with plenty of seating.

The house is located close to Rt 12 so you can walk there easily, but you can also walk the opposite way to the beach. It was a bonus to have the Schooner Ridge pool by the ocean as well as our own private, clean pool since the baby needed to return from the beach for his naps in the afternoon.

The kitchen was stocked fairly well with dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans etc, but definitely light on the small things such as plastic wrap, tin foil, spices etc. We brought and left wrap and foil as well as salt and pepper and some other items. We found a roll of toilet paper in each bathroom and also left extras. I love the "pay it forward" philosophy and hope more people continue to follow it.

There are a number of decks surrounding the house, but my favorite was the upper deck which provided a great view and nice place to sit to have our morning coffee or drinks in the afternoon.

We hit an extremely hot week so we never cooked on the gas grill so I can't comment on it's working condition, but I will say it is located on the ground level with the kitchen on the top (3rd) floor so it is quite a hike.

We received our security deposit within 4 days of our departure and so appreciated that efficiency.

I highly recommend renting Duck Unlimited from Augie - you will not be disappointed.

Great time in Duck!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Duck Unlimited. It is in a convenient location. We were able to park our cars for the week and walk everywhere including into the restaurants, shops and beach. We loved having multiple pools available including at the house and beach. Having young kids, it was reassuring to have a lifeguard at our beach. The owner was available for any questions and always with a quick response. The house easily accommodated 3 family with 6 children 6 and under. I would definitely recommend this property.

The home was very clean with excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. It was very clean and had all the accommodations we needed and more. We've rented 2 other homes in Duck before , but this one was our favorite! There were 6 adults and 2 children and we all had our own space with room to spare. The ONLY downfall of the home is that the grill is in the front of the home rather than by the pool. We enjoy grilling while being social but the layout didn't really allow that. However, that wasn't a big deal.

The beach is a short walk away and the beach front pool is a wonderful plus. I also felt more comfortable having a lifeguard on duty. The water was rough due to an incoming storm and we witnessed 2 rescues in the same day.

We would definitely rent this home again!

Great house with private pool and close proximity to beach and town of Duck

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 had a great week staying at this home. it was a short walk to the beach (on pavement with little or no traffic) so we didn't have to go through sand and brush to get there. We were grateful to have the private pool because we could spend mornings at the beach and the afternoons at the pool. We had 3 little ones who still require naps, so they could sleep and the rest of us could enjoy the pool. The weather was great while we were there, so we did not use the gym or indoor pool, but it was nice knowing they were available had we experienced a rainy day. It was a slightly longer walk to the stores and restaurants in Duck, but certainly doable, even for our 6 and 7 year old kids.The kids loved the magic show and Duck donuts in town. The house was very clean and well maintained. The owner was very easy to reach and even called us the day after we arrived to make sure everything was going well. I only have 0ne minor complaint. When we arrived, after a long day in the car, we found only one roll of toilet paper for 5 bathrooms and a lack of supplies I'm usually used to finding in rental homes. I have rented 3 homes in 3 different locations in the last year, and all three supplied at least a day or two supply of toilet paper, paper towels, hand and dishwashing soap, salt and pepper, etc. Consequently, we had to make a run to Walmart immediately. Having never been to the Outer Banks before, maybe this is standard for rentals there. we would love to stay in this house again. We will just know to bring paper products and soap with us! The house itself was great; it was clean, had nice furnishings and everything worked. Kitchen supplies were satisfactory- all the cooking and eating supplies anyone would need. I recommend this house to anyone traveling to the Outer Banks. We loved the location because of the short distance to the beach and the town of Duck. I also appreciated the ease with which we could reach the owner and his willingness to make sure we were happy with the rental.

We loved Duck Unlimited!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, spacious house with plenty of room for all 12 of us to eat together, hang out in the living room, swim in the pool, lounge in the hot tub, and just generally make good memories. Nice short walk to the beach and to town, and great to have the Schooner Ridge amenities at our disposal too! We will definitely look to stay here again if we can. Thank you for a great vacation!
