FAQ: We have owned the home for nine years and have rented through larger agency in the past. We have had success through vrbo with another property and this is our first year at the beach. You can book directly on line or contact me. We can arrange to make three payments depending on how far out you book. Once the last payment has been made, usually scheduled two weeks before arrival date, you will be send instructions on address, entry, and other pertinent information on house. There is a 90 day 100% refund.

As far as the location of house to beach, please see posted pictures and captions. One picture was taken from house showing access between a yellow and a gray ocean front houses. The second picture shows a close up of access showing same houses. I hope that made sense. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions.

About The Owner

My wife and three kids have owned the house for nine years. We spend as much time as we can here and hope you will love Duck and 'life on the sand bar' as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

What makes this cottage unique

It is doubtful that you will find another rental property restored, decorated, and furnished like ours. We have created the house the way we do our main residence and hope you will enjoy our slice of happiness as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ducking awesome.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. It was big enough for our family and had everything you could think of in it. The kitchen was stocked with many dishes, pots and pans, silverware and griddle, toaster etc. Hot tub and pool were amazing. My family had a great time in the hot tub and pool. Also it is in the perfect location for the beach. A short 3 minute walk and you were there playing in the sand or walking on the beach.

We had a issue with the water pressure on Monday morning. I called the owner and he was pleasant and take care of it right away. Sending a plummer. It was not a huge issue at all.

I would absoulutely rent this home again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful - well maintained and nicely decorated. We were a party of 7 - my husband and I and 5 young adults. All of us were comfortable and slept great! The kitchen was fully stocked and made cooking and serving food a breeze. We spent a lot of time at the beach and it was only a short walk - approx. 6 houses away. You can bike into the town of Duck in about 15-20 mins. or drive in just 5 mins. I highly recommend this house and hope to return in the future.

Perfect for Our Visit

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our visit to the OBX. The location just north of Duck was away from the busyness of the OBX but was close enough to easily drive to the attractions. The layout of the house worked really well. Our youngest daughter, her husband and two sons used the two bedrooms located on the lower level. My wife and I used the bedroom on the main floor and our oldest daughter had the bedroom on the top floor to herself. The house was clean and there are many pots and pans of all types. The pool is in great shape and we spent a lot of time swimming. The bar area just 4 or 5 steps up from the pool is always shaded and there are a couple of small spots of shade from the deck stairs for folks that may need to stay out of the sun. We enjoyed the easy walk to the beach, only a few houses away and the sound is not far the other direction. Rod was always responsive and got back to us quickly. The only negative we had was that the water pressure dropped really low when the sprinklers were running so we had to watch the timing for showers. Not really a problem just something to be aware of. Duck has a lot going for it and my only regret is that we didn't do more exploring there. If we are able to come back we will hit Duck Donuts again. I can't remember the last time I had a donut but they are really really worth it! I would definitely rent this home again.
