The property is in a great location and the house has everything you need in it. You can walk to most everything. We had a bit of a rocky start, but the owners made things right. We enjoyed our week there with our family.
It was wonderful to have you as understanding guests and allowing us the chance to "To Make Things Right".
Great first visit to Duck!
We had a great week with friends at Quacker Jacks. The location is so convenient to town! We have very young children, so we rented a golf cart to run around, and that was a blast. There’s almost always parking at the beach at the end of the road, and it’s a great beach! If you are traveling with adults and older kids, walking to the beach is definitely possible.
The house was great, very spacious. Something important for me is that the AC worked really well - it was HOT outside! Having two dishwashers and ovens made cooking for 12 people way easier.
Communicating with Bud and Janice was easy, and they were very responsive. My only suggestion would be to do away with smoking on the property (it’s only allowed outside, nothing inside of course) because it is gross to deal with cigarette butts outside. The owners try to handle this with butt buckets but apparently people are too lazy to use them, yuck! It’s very specific in the clean up rules that you should take care of your own cigarette mess so this definitely isn’t the owners fault. I just think a smoke-free property would be nice!
Overall, we had a great week and would stay again.
I have to agree with you regarding the cigarette mess. Most guests treat the place as their own.
Met and Exceeded Expectations
Great layout. The bedrooms are spread out nicely for privacy and quiet if needed, and plenty of open area to get together as a group. Location is a good compromise for venturing into town by foot and accessing the beach easily. Pool was well kept, and plenty of seating for the group. Fully loaded kitchen, made meal time easy. I'd rent again without hesitation.
Please do return!
Great home and great location
Excellent communication with the owners. House was perfect for 3 families. Lots of room for group activities. The pool and corn hole were a hit with the kids. We had everything we needed to prepare meals. Great close location to the shops and restaurants in Duck. Much appreciation to the owners for renting out their home. When return to OBX, we’ll be sure to see if this home is available.
Much appreciation to our guests for selecting us!
Thank you so much for opening up your home. It was perfect. Everyone had a great time and everyone had plenty of space. This trip was just about 3 families spending time together and that’s exactly what we did we barely left the house and when we did everything was walkable. So thank you again! If we decide to come back to the Outerbanks and you still have the house I will be in touch!
Returning Guests are our best compliments!
Thank you for staying with us.
Family Get together
Just returned from a glorious week at Quacker Jacks. The house is in a great location. A short walk to the beach and a short walk to Duck Town Center. It is as well equipped as the other reviewers have noted. We cooked most of the meals for seven days for 12 people. We never ran out of dishes/utensils, etc. The beds were comfortable. There was plenty of room for the 12 of us to move around in the space. Didn't try the hot tub but the pool was great. Really appreciated the check in call we received from the owner at the beginning of our stay.
Glad we were able to make your family Get together a glorious one.
** The Immediate area**Quacker Jacks is especially well-positioned, e.g. short stroll to the beach (of course) and the town. Park your car when you arrive and forget about it until you leave.
There are too many activities to list, and many are unique to the Duck area!
Many describe Duck...as being the best town on the Outer Banks! Quaint, charming, and yet has all high-end amenities. Biker/pedestrian-friendly throughout. Stroll to some of the best restaurants, spas, shops, and sights around.
*Local information*Even if you've been to the OBX before, there are many attractions that might surprise you! :)
- The NEW 80-acre water park includes multiple water slide complexes, massive wave pool, adventure lagoon and lazy river, and a FlowRider surf ride attraction. Over two acres will be dedicated to a state-of-the-art children’s adventure area with a double entry wave pool and other innovative, interactive play areas and structures. Fifty private, wait-serviced cabanas, diverse food and beverage options, and retail venues are some of the many amenities to be offered.
This NEW addition to the OBX experience will be truly an UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE!
- Speaking of unforgettable, Take a KAYAK TOUR of the alligator river (yes, there are alligators in N.C.) and maybe get to hear one of the critically endangered RED WOLVES unique only to eastern N.C.
For the birders, visit the Audubon Pine island bird sanctuary. The Sanctuary is one of the last pieces of untouched property on the northeastern portion of the Outer Banks, preserving 2,600 acres of marsh, upland maritime forest and sandy beaches, as well as the historical beauty of the Outer Banks. The Sanctuary remains largely free from development, so birds and wildlife can continue to have a safe place to thrive free from human disturbance, and you can HIKE , PICNIC , go HANG-GLIDING (all levels, or tandem) , and LEARN at the top-notch visitors' center.
