Duck, NC 27949

Inn Like Flynn is only used by families. During peak summer season, we are a Sunday - Sunday rental. We are a non-smoking home.

Inn Like Flynn is a child-friendly, pet-friendly, super-stocked & CLEAN home!! Inn Like Flynn is an amazing beach home in the heart of Duck, NC. This is not your typical, bare and worn beach home. It has everything you need and more! You can walk to the Atlantic Ocean at one end of our street or the Currituck Sound at the other end. Our street is in the HEART of Duck so you can walk everywhere!

DISTANCE TO BEACH: This home is on a street that is less than 1/2 mile long and has the Currituck Sound at one end and the Atlantic Ocean at the other. Our home is roughly 500 yards to the Atlantic Ocean and less than 200 yards to Route 12/Currituck Sound. You can walk to the beach in 5 minutes or you have the option to park your car full of beach items at the end of the street since we are a private neighborhood.

What we love about Inn Like Flynn the most are our GUESTS! We have a lot of families that come back year after year and everyone treats our home like it is theirs. We have a "pay it forward" policy and our wonderful Guests leave spices, coffee filters and other kitchen supplies for the next guest.

We want you to feel like our house is a home for your family during your vacation. Upon arrival, you will have a welcome basket of some toilet paper, trash bags, compactor bag and there are hand towels throughout the house as well as soap dispensers filled in each bathroom. We do supply dishwasher or washing machine supplies but most guests will find some left by prior guests.

1/2 of a mile from the house is Tommy's Market, Wee Winks Market, Duck Seafood, ABC Liquor store, Wings Beach Store and many, many other shops for all of your needs. As you enter the Outer Banks over the bridge, there is a 24 hour Harris Teeter Grocery store to stock up on all of your needs as well as a Food Lion and Super Wal-Mart there too.

Inn Like Flynn is located in the heart of Duck, North Carolina (Outer Banks). You can walk to all of the restaurants, shops and bars. North of you is Corolla where the horses run wild and there's a 4-wheel drive area of the beach. South of you is Kitty Hawk and Nags Head, where there is so much to do, it is hard to list it all. I have a document to email you of what to do and see in the OBX.

The Outer Banks is a wonderful island that offers just about everything for a family vacation. Amazing golf courses, warm water, long beaches, all of the water sports you can dream up - plus amazing restaurants and shopping!

While our home has enough to sleep 18, we have found that occupancy over 14 is too tight for the layout of our home given our 5th bedroom also serves as the game room. Therefore, we only rent to parties of 14 and under.

There are a LOT amenities - some highlighted are:

5 bedroom, 4.5 baths, plus a crib and 2 port-a-cribs

Outdoor: pool, hot tub, hammock, porch bed, basketball, dog pen

Game Room with: pool table, dartboard, two TVs, surround sound, wetbar, ice machine, full bath and 2 (double size) futons.

Great Room with: 32' TV, wet bar, surround sound, over 30 board games, over 100 movies, awesome Currituck Sound views, fully stocked kitchen!! You'll be impressed!

Rates are ALL INCLUSIVE OF: Taxes (13.75%), Cleaning, Bed Linens, Bath Towels and use of Pool and Hot Tub. We do NOT supply beach towels. **If bringing pets, we do have a $150 fee and allow up to 2 dogs.

Pool is open from May 1st - October 31st weather permitting (it is NOT heated).

Thanks for looking!! We know you'll love it here!

Why Joelle Flynn chose Duck

Duck has everything you want in a family vacation. The Town of Duck is so beautiful and the residents are very welcoming. From our house, you can walk to the Atlantic Ocean or the Currituck Sound AND to every restaurant, bar or shop your heart desires in Duck. It's the perfect location!

Also, our home is situated on a quiet street where there are many year-round neighbors to keep it quiet and welcoming. Directly across the street from us are empty lots and behind us is a field owned by the Town of Duck can never be built upon so you have quiet and privacy at our home. The neighbors directly to the left and right of our home do not rent out their homes as well to assure even more added privacy.

What makes this house unique

We have taken the time to stock our home to the fullest. You will find a completely stocked kitchen, games for everyone, toys for kids and more books and movies that you could possibly desire. Just go and relax in this beautiful and CLEAN home!! We are so happy to share our home with your family!

From the moment of first contact, Joelle was wonderful to work with and provided so much great information about the home and the Town of Duck. The home was exceptionally clean and super, well stocked! I would say the kitchen is better stocked than mine at home! It was a super easy and quick walk to the beach and to the heart of the town. We enjoyed the magnificent sunsets off of the top deck and the hot tub was the best. If we needed anything, Joelle was right there to answer our questions quickly and happily. We cannot say enough about this beautiful home and vacation at Inn Like Flynn! We have already booked our return back. Thank you so much Flynn family for making this the best vacation ever!

Delightful Fall Getaway

  • 4 of 5

October ended up being a great time to visit the Outer Banks, the weather was perfect and nothing was crowded. We all really enjoyed the hot tub and playing pool, the children even jumped in the outdoor pool a few times even though it was a little cold by this time of year! Loved the proximity to Duck as well as the Sound and the beach. It is also close enough to visit the Corolla lighthouse and Nags Head for the sand dunes and Aquarium, so we really enjoyed the location. The owner was easy to work with!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful for a group who mostly wanted to talk and relax. We very much enjoyed the hot tub and it's only a short walk to the beach. There were a lot of great places to eat very close. The house had an abundance of cooking equipment and dishes. The only thing missing was the dishwasher soap. I would gladly stay there again.

Home is PERFECt for family vacation needs! Great location near ocean and sound!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Inn Like Flynn in OBX! Home has light, modern decor and is very spacious. Pictures online don't do this home justice! Private homeowners were great to deal with vs large, impersonal company. You can tell owners have spent personal time at the home and have put care into its appearance and amenities. If you have young children this is especially the place for you. Full size crib and space save high chair were included in home, and baby gates available to use at all levels for huge piece of mind. You will not beat the location of this home!! Less than five minute walk to beach, or drive and park at the boardwalk at the end of a private road; boardwalk is made of trex-type decking and is in great shape. Home is very close to village of Duck for shopping, eating, etc - you can easily walk or ride your bike. Everything was very clean when we checked in. Kitchen fully stocked with anything you might need during your stay. Good outdoor shower, and large, modern washer and dryer. Pool made our stay and was a hit for our multi-generation family; very comfy lounge chairs and two nice patio tables with seating on pool level. Only complaint was mattresses on beds had seen a lot of use, most were squeaky and or sagged in middle. Would definitely recommend this home and would stay again!

First time to OBX

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to OBX and it was wonderful. My daughter and son-in-law vacation in OBX regularly so They were our personal tour guides! So much to see and do. Inn Like Flynn is an awesome beach house with amazing views from the top floor. It was very clean and well-stocked for all our needs. Joelle was so good to deal with and very responsive and accommodating. The location is great. Convenient to the beach and the wonderful little town of Duck. The pool was perfect and my kids and granddaughter enjoyed the hot tub. The only drawback for me was the stairs. The house is 3 levels with lots of stairs. Might be a little harder for us older folks 😄? But the tall houses are necessary for the beautiful views of the stunning sunrises and sunsets. Hope to go back again for sure.

Super family home! Better than expected...

  • 5 of 5

First, the online photos don't do this house justice -- it is even better in person!! We spent 6 terrific nights in this beautiful home and thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and amenities of the home plus its location in Duck (our first time to the Outer Banks!) Joelle was THE BEST -- from our first inquiry where she confirmed within minutes that our odd dates (Tues - Monday) could be booked (most property owners allowed Sat-Sat only or didn't bother to respond at all!) to our check-out, she was welcoming, informative and professional. The highlights of the house for our group were the pool and hot tub, the multiple bathrooms, comfortable beds, the large bar ice maker, the seating areas (plenty of room to spread out and super comfortable couches) and upgraded appliances. Everything was in working order and sparkling clean. We also appreciated the basketball goals, beach wagon, toys, beach chairs and pool area furniture! Our only warning to future guests is to check for ticks at night -- we suspect they were from retrieving basketballs under the trees. All in all, a wonderful vacation and we would definitely return to Inn Like Flynn! Thank you Flynn family for opening your home!

Town of Duck's owns a beautiful 10-acre property!! It's a great family destination. There is an amphitheater, covered picnics, playground, 1+mile boardwalk along the Currituck Sound! Between the movies, games, pool table, hot tub, pool, basketball goals, you will not be bored! Also - there are PLENTY of beach chairs, toys and boogie boards at your disposal. In 2014, they expanded the Sound Boardwalk all the way to down to the beginning of Duck to Aqua Restaurant!
