Great little house by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at this little house by the sea! We've rented cottages for years and this was by far the cleanest house we've stayed in, inside and out. The carpet appeared new and the house had everything we needed. Overall it's a typical beach house, the only area that needs a little update is the kitchen but it was clean and had everything we needed. Would recommend!

Quiet and cozy

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful quiet weekend at gental breeze with our 2 Golden’s! A five star review for the quiet neighborhood and off leash dog beach, also the owner was very nice and accommodating. The property itself is a little outdated.

Owner's Response: We are planning some updates in the near future. Other than the kitchen cabinets, new flooring, and some paint on the outside needed what is your suggestion?

Nice enough for a getaway with your fur baby

  • 3 of 5

This place was conveniently located to the beach and the town of Duck. Just a short walk to both locations. Needs updating and could've been a bit cleaner. Plenty of living, kitchen, bedroom space; both bathrooms are tiny though.

I always enjoy places I can bring my dog with me and Duck beach is an off-the-leash dog friendly beach! Unfortunately the yard there has those prickly spurs which hurt and get stuck in your dog's paws so there isn't really anywhere for them to do their business expect under the house around back.

Overall a good place to bring your fur baby for a weekend getaway.

Excellent home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at Gentle Breezes. EverythIng felt like home - from the couches, kitchen supplies, bathroom linens and beach items. We couldn't have asked for more. Our doggies loved it too! Such a quiet, family oriented neighborhood with a short walk to the beach. We WILL be back! Many thanks.

There are horse tours out of Corolla just north of Duck.

The horses are wild and live on the beaches of Corova which requires a 4 wheel drive to see. You can drive on this beach. There are outside movies in the park for children and lots of small bands that play outside at some of the eateries. You can rent golf karts, bikes, paddle boards , strollers, umbrellas and chairs locally.
