Why owner/property manager chose Duck
We purchased this beautiful cottage in 1998. We love it for its fantastic location, cottage charm, and convenient one floor living. Sanderling, a subdivision of Duck, is a bird sanctuary. You can take a short walk to The Sanderling Inn for a great meal, including an oceanfront bar and restaurant. There is a community pool located on beautiful Currituck Sound as well as a Fitness Center. The Currituck Club golf course is just a short drive, as are the supermarkets and wonderful restaurants.

Perfect Home and Location For Us!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your home in Duck! Very clean, comfortable furnishings, and delightfully decorated in a "beach" theme. The house was just the right size for our children and young grand-children. The available amenities were very useful, especially the double showers outside and the grill which was used often. There is very little traffic on the double cul-de-sac street making it easy to keep track of the children. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. They were quick to assist us when we couldn't find the correct public walkway to the beach. The beach is just a mere 200 yards away! The beaches are clean and full of scenic wildlife: sandpipers, seagulls, fiddler crabs, and of course dolphins. Local shopping is just minutes away going either South or North on the main road. Shopping includes grocery stores, restaurants, and novelty shops.
To summit up, it was GREAT!!
I’m glad that you and your family enjoyed your vacation. Thank you so much for your kind words. Please consider staying with us again.
All the best.
Beautiful house and very comfortable. We had a great time.
Wonderful place in a very peaceful area, ideal to stay disconnected from the real world. We hope to come back soon!
Thank you for your kind words. I’m so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time in the Outer Banks. Please consider coming back to our home again.
All the best.
This house was perfect for our needs and Bob was a great host! Location is awesome, very short walk to the beach. We have four young children and they could walk there with no problems.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope that you’ll consider staying with us again if your travel plans bring you back to the Outer Banks.
All the best. Bob
We really enjoyed our stay. Everything you could need was in the house, the stroll to the beach was short and the neighborhood is nice. We had a great time and hope to visit again. Thanks for the room and board!
Thank you for the kind words. I'm so glad that you found our home enjoyable. I hope you'll consider us again if your travel plans bring you back to the Outer Banks.
All the best to you and your family.
Great for a long weekend
My family and I have been visiting Duck annually for the past 8 summers, but all of our stays have been on the same little street as this cottage just south of Sanderling.
Some would rather be more in town. But an easy 5k run south will get you to Duck donuts right in the heart of Duck. Personally I love being away from the fray!
It's somewhat difficult to review this particular house given we have stayed in this same location so many times, but on the other side of the road in much larger Oceanfront/view homes. But that also gives a good idea of the comparisons.
The biggest perk of renting this home is the flexibility with check-in. If you go through one of the OBX property managers, you will have to stay an entire week (or at least pay an entire week!). Our school system altered the start date this year, so we were unable to come during the end of summer when we normally visit. I decided on a long weekend in Sept to take advantage of a Friday school holiday. This was possible only because I found a VRBO home where I could stay 3 nights instead of paying an entire week.
Bob is extremely accommodating & communicative. Everything was ready to go with an easy check-in door code upon our arrival. Frequently with the property managers, your house isn't ready until 3/4 pm the day you arrive. He made planning the arrival so easy because it was ready whenever we happened to get there.
- Ease of check-in, flexibility of check-in, & flexibility of scheduling shorter than one week
- Location-quiet & not crowded
- SO much "house stuff". Toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, dishwasher & laundry soap... (typically not included in OBX homes. This house was jam packed with everything you'd possibly need)
- Road noise - this was really my only downside. The bedrooms back to Duck Road, and it's very loud (even middle of the night). This is not something I had ever experienced being on the ocean side.
Things to be aware of:
The kitchen is fairly small and in the center of the house. It worked out fine for us, but if you have lots of "cooks in the kitchen" it would be crowded.
There is a washer/dryer, but you have to go outside/downstairs to access. Initially I thought this would be a negative, but didn't impact me.
Having always had direct access/private walkways to the beach, I thought this would be my biggest con, but it is not at all a problem. Such an easy walk to the beach.
A lovely time and we would stay again!
Thank you so much for your kind words and review of our home.
We keep the home stocked with essentials to make it easier for our guests. Running to the store again and again is not at all convenient. I'm glad that you found that feature helpful for you.
We would welcome you and your family again.
Loved the beach and the area the cottage was in but please know that it does back up to a main road and you can hear the traffic during the night and especially in the morning--it is very LOUD due to the walls being so thin. Also, the home is in much need of renovation--the temperature dial on stove is broken so you have to guess the temp--the dishwasher is very old--I had to change the filters to house when we arrived because stuff was blowing out--they had not been changed since March (the date was written on filters) Also, I had to sweep the bathrooms and kitchen because of sand and wipe things down a bit--cobwebs were everywhere (in light fixtures, etc.) even though we paid a $150 cleaning fee. Also, the tv's in bedrooms were not working so the cable people had to come (the day before we left) to fix the problem so no tv for us in bedrooms pretty much our whole stay--the grass outside had not been cut and was long--the deck needs major repairing and staining. Overall, sorry to say we would not stay here again. The property owners seems nice but really needs to update this cottage!!
