What a wonderful time we had, with the only problem being that we wished we could have stayed longer. The house is great, nestled among impressive live oaks that were cleared just enough to accommodate the house and that give a feel of what the area might have looked like decades ago, before development. The view from inside gives the impression of being in a tree house! Easy and pleasant walk to the beach, partially covered by the tree canopy that reaches across the street, through a very nicely and tastefully developed and maintained neighborhood. Perfect location - very convenient to anything you would want to do or see in Duck, and an easy drive to Corolla or to Kitty Hawk/Nags Head as well. We hope to find our way back to Duck in the future and will definitely look to stay at "The Simple Life" again.

We had been planning this vacation for 9 months, and Lightly Salted more than lived up to the anticipation. It is a beautiful beach home with a lot of extras to make the stay extra enjoyable. The view and sound of the ocean can't be beat; whether enjoying coffee on the deck of the morning, or a beer on the deck at night. It is steps from the beach with an outside covered shower to rinse off that sand. Being pet friendly was a must for us, and Lightly Salted did not disappoint with allowing our golden retriever and border collie. A well equipped kitchen helped us to make steamed blue crab, grilled fresh shrimp, and oysters Rockefeller (all fresh from the local area). A 4wd vehicle is absolutely necessary to navigate the beach and get to the property. Also letting the air out of your tires (we saw a few people get stuck who hadn't) helps. Taking those steps, we had no issues getting to and from the house. The wild horses paid us a visit and used the shade of the bottom porch to cool off, allowing wonderful pictures. The property manager Laura responded to all texts immediately and was SUPER helpful. The only recommendation we have would be for an updated grill, but we are grill fanatics, lol. Overall, an awesome vacation experience!
