  • Very Positive Experience

    "This home lived up to --and in some ways exceeded-- the reviews. Aesthetically, it was actually nicer, I thought, than the VRBO pictures indicate. Top deck off master suite is quite nice for watching sunsets and taking in the stars. Hot tub and outdoor shower both great. Mattresses were comfortable. Beach and nautical themed decorations were tasteful. We made a lot of use of the tennis court, which was in good shape, and we never had to wait to play. The well-maintained community pool is also a nice feature. One particularly noteworthy aspect of the house is the quality of the kitchen accessories. All the cooking utensils you could possibly need for meal prep are provided. Knives were sharp; plates, glasses, and cookware was ample and in good repair. True to the house name, there were abundant utensils for preparing and eating crabs (we also caught a few off the pier on the bayside, using the provided crab trap.) We brought our own beach umbrella and boogie boards, but we could have easily gotten by with those that are available in the house's utility room. No need to bring a beach cart for hauling things -- there's a wagon big enough for 4 beach chairs, umbrella, beach bag, and beach toys. Mark, the owner, was very cooperative and accommodating. Renting and return of deposit were seamless transactions. He even let us know that, unexpectedly, the next renter would not be arriving on the day of our scheduled check out and that we could stay longer if we wanted. While our travel schedule did not allow us to take advantage of his generous offer, we were able to clean, pack up, and depart at a more leisurely pace, which was greatly appreciated. All -in-all, excellent value. Highly recommended!"

  • A place that makes you want to move to Duck!

    "We spent a week at just ducky with my two children (ages 7 and 3) and my in laws. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the small touches that made this house so wonderful for our family. The three house walk to the beach was incredible and easy for even the most obstinate three year old. The bicycles were so appreciated and we spent the week biking to shops, ice cream and the beach. My seven year old used one bike and could have fit on a few others as well. The helmets were appreciated and we may skip packing our own next year! We packed beach toys but there was no need- the house has toys, umbrellas, plenty of chairs and many pool floats and noodles. We won't pack any of that next year! We cannot say enough about the pool and hot tub area- our young children never left the pool and loved the shallow area and set up. I found the weather a bit hot but my family loved the hot tub anyways! The area was clean and well equipped. As for the house- super clean and th kitchen had plenty of pots, pans and needed gadgets for cooking. We cooked nightly and had everything we needed. We have an anaphylactic contact food allergy and the home was so clean we didn't worry about food residue or crumbs. The children's items were fantastic (high chairs, a bed rail, even a potty seat! Books and a few toys, Tvs, game system, fun video library!) and our kids also enjoyed hanging out in front of cable tv and movies to get out of the sun! The decks were fantastic for coffee drinking and hanging out and the AC kept us super cool and comfortable! There are many things that make renting with children easier and this home had them- night lights with switches around every corner, pool toys and quick walk to the beach, located two minutes from the boardwalk shops and plenty to do, and such a comfortable home. To top it off the owners were incredible- answered emails, checked in with us and left us a welcome bag with some small touches that were so appreciated. We immediately fell in love and planned to rent it again, unless we buy in Duck before then! We simply cannot wait to return. Thank you so much for a great week. We will rent again for sure!"

  • Great house, location and vacation!

    "We've been coming back to this house for 9 years straight nowadays it could be better. With all the space (8 rooms) everyone has a place to sleep. They have this great top deck that towers over the other houses and you can even see the ocean from it! 10/10 would recomend this house to anyone."

  • Best week at OBX yet.

    "The view was magnificent. I loved having 2 decks, one being shaded in the afternoon. The bedrooms, rec room and den were perfect for our family (2 tweens, 3 under 7, and 5 adults). We two 70 year olds, unaccustomed to stairs, appreciated the elevator as did the younger adults as they unpacked and packed the cars. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking meals 'at home'. We've already reserved our week for next year."
