About the property

We Welcome You To Enjoy Our Family Beach Home. Make Memories With Your Love One

What a great choice for your vacation spot. Duck is addicting and you will be smitten with the Beaches and Inter-Coastal. The house is located just steps away from the paved walking trail that goes for miles, even through the City of Duck. It is used for Bikes, Runners, Walkers, you will even meet baby strollers and dogs. The activity and vitality of the families is contagious.

But there is also lots of relaxation and laid back.

Our home has covered Decking and Open Decking for shade or sun, gentle breezes and star gazing. Rent bikes, fly kites, play golf, close to the local favorite restaurants and seafood markets. Ice cream parlor and Farmers Market, and Specialty shops. Officially the best Sunrises and Sunsets anywhere. Take lots of pictures and store the memories in your heart, until you return with your family and suggest it to your friends next year.

About Sharon Butler

It was my dream to have a house that my Children could vacation in and enjoy with my Grandchildren. It was always about Family and making memories together.

The years have passed we have many wonderful memories of beach times, fishing, eating great seafood meals, laughing and talking together. The videos are in our closets but many of the images of those vacations are etched in our memories. We are in a different chapter, spead out across the U.S. the Grandchildren have families of their own... this is such a magical and special place, we invite you to vacation with your family and keep the traditions alive.

Sharon Butler purchased this house in 1997

Why Sharon Butler chose Duck

It was just the right one, it was meant to be our place. We knew it in our hearts and felt that God was providing us with an opportunity and our own special gift. Now we are sharing the gift with you.

What makes this house unique

The air and the sound of the waters ebb and flow, the time away from our normal lives, so crazy and busy will lend healing and peace to carry you through the year...until next summer, when you will need another dose of Duck...

Perfect for a Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place for a weekend getaway for a group of girls in our early 30s. The house was perfect - the pictures actually don't reflect how cozy and updated this place is. The kitchen has been redone and there appears to be new carpet. The beach was a short walk away, so we spent most of our time there, but we also enjoyed the large upper deck at night because you can see so many stars! The beach is great - private access so you're not competing for space with a bunch of other people. You're super close to the shops and restaurants in Duck, so it was easy to explore outside of the beach area as well - highly recommend Aqua, Roadside Bar & Grill, and Duck Donuts! Check in/out was easy and the host was super accessible when needed. Property was very tidy and well-maintained. Overall, we loved our time here and would re-book in an instant!

We absolutely enjoyed our stay in Duck. Great area, house was great and a very short walk to the beach. The house was very comfortable for a large family. The only downfall was the outdoor grill very small and hard to grill for a large group. The beach was beautiful and very short trip to the awesome Boardwalk with great stores and a change of pace. Location , location, location !!! Highly recommend !!!

we were so excited the moment we walked into the rental, it's super cozy and very comfortable. Felt like I was at home the whole time and slept very well. I would definitely book this again and recommend this property to anyone planning an OBX trip.

We stayed at the house through Memorial Day weekend. The house was super clean when we arrived. There are tons of linens for the beds and towels. We had a decent group of girls staying there and had plenty of towels for everyone. The house is pretty close to the restaurants around town as well. All of the beds were really comfortable too. They even had beach toys in the laundry room for the kids to take to the beach which helped because we didn't bring many and the stores aren't in walking distance. It rained the last day we were there and the steps were super slippery from some mold on them. We didn't even notice it before when it was hot and sunny, but my sister walked out to leave and fell down several stairs and had a bruise about the size of a basketball on her backside. Ten minutes later I went to leave and did the exact same thing. I messaged the owner about it so hopefully the stairs were power washed or slip grips were added to them! The owner was very easy to get ahold of if we had any questions about anything. Overall the place was a great place to stay and would definitely stay again if we traveled to that area again.
