6 Bedrooms, 4 Masters, 360 Views, Close to Everything in Duck
About John VanderMyde
I'm a local property investor with 6 rentals, three of which are weekly vacation homes. This home is called the Tarvalier, since I went to UVA and my wife to UNC, and my other vacation rentals is the SeaWitch, also on VRBO, and Otter Creek, a soundfront 4 bedroom on Colington Island.
John VanderMyde purchased this House in 2002
Why John VanderMyde chose Duck
After showing over 1000 rental homes during my real estate sales career, I had a few thoughts on how to build one better. I earned my General Contractors license, designed the home, and got to work. Most people seem to like it a lot.
What makes this House unique
4th story tower room is unique, and only exists on this home and other's i've designed (six others on the obx) with over 3600 square feet of living area, six bedrooms with four masters, it holds a lot of people. I've also put in two fridges in the kitchen, two dishwashers, two sinks, and an over-sized range with two ovens.

Check in was smooth and easy, the house was larger than I envisioned- we were just a small family, but kept saying it would be a great spot for a large group! Lots of nice little touches to make it feel homey. Appreciated all the laminated guides to things like the multiple remote controls. Bed was very comfortable. Kitchen was very well stocked. Lots of books and games found in books and crannies around the house. Location was great too, we could walk to everything in the village of Duck. Really enjoyed our stay!
Great property - fantastic location
My husband and I rented this property for an impromptu long weekend getaway with our dog. We couldn't be more pleased with the house and the accuracy of the listing. Fabulous views, easy access to downtown Duck, the sound, and the ocean. It's our second property that we've stayed with from this owner and he's always prompt in communication and willing to resolve any issues. (even though we didn't have any during our stay) Thank you for another wonderful vacation memory!
Owner was Professional & Efficient
House was very comfortable and well suited to our multi- generational family gathering .... we enjoyed the location as it is well located for shopping, dining and the Beach ... Overall it worked well for our busy pre and post wedding festivities
Great house, location and host!
This house truly has it all. Any amenity we could've asked for and then some. Such a wonderful layout that everyone could still find a spot to "get away" within the house if they wanted to. Centrally located you can easily walk to the beach or downtown Duck (although there is a golf cart). The house is just beautiful. John was great; even answering a last minute question on Christmas Day. Thank you again John for letting my family stay in your home.
Our entire extended family loved our Christmas stay at the Tarvalier! There was plenty of room for everyone to gather together or find a private space when desired. The short walk to the beach, and even shorter walk to the Duck boardwalk was awesome and enjoyed by all. The pool table and the hot tub were the favorite items, while those responsible for feeding the large crew appreciated the well stocked kitchen and pantry. Would definitely recommend the house and would love to come stay again!
The house was perfect for our group
We planned this trip months in advance because of our annual beach clean up down in Carova and we wanted a house to hold us and several friends. This house was perfect. Unfortunately, our weekend trip was the day after Hurricane Michael and there was evidence of devastation in the area. This house sits high and had no storm damage. The owner worked with us for the minor issues we had and we appreciate that. It's a house I would recommend to friends in the future. Beautiful place. The 2 young boys with us enjoyed playing pool downstairs while the adults enjoyed time upstairs in the 3rd floor kitchen and living rooms. The bed we slept on was very comfortable and according to our friends, theirs was also.
