  • Perfect family location

    "We enjoyed our stay at the Sandpiper in summer 2016. The location is absolutely perfect! We spent the majority of our time at the private beach and pool. Both were never crowded and very clean, and took just two minutes to walk to. There is a restroom and outdoor shower next to the pool - very convenient as well. The Colony by the Sea complex is older, but very well maintained and clean. The condo itself was updated, tidy, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed for the week. Kitchen was well stocked with necessities to prep meals. Couch and bed were comfortable. Hall bunks were perfect for our kids. Bring nightlights if your kids need them, as well as bedding, towels, toilet paper, and paper towels. Four beach chairs are provided. The condo looks just as it does in the photos. It is the perfect size for couples and small families. Be mindful that while this is on the 3rd floor, there are actually 4 flights of steps since the building is on stilts. No elevators. We were fine with this but it could present a problem to those with health issues, especially in the heat. Nancy was wonderful to work with. She was quick to respond, helpful, and thoughtful. Very friendly as well! Thanks for providing us with a great spot to enjoy a memorable and relaxing family vacation!"

  • Couldn't be better!

    "I was going to discuss the pros and cons of vacationing at Seaquester, but there just are no cons. We are a family of seven adults and we had a blast at Seaquester. First of all, Patti at Great Escapes was so kind and helpful, and their cleaning crew did a fantastic job- the house and bathrooms were very clean (and I am fussy). There are four king bedrooms with their own bath and a room with two bunk beds, which we didn't need to use. The top floor has a master bedroom, the living room, dining room and kitchen (with everything you could want). The two refrigerators were wonderful - we used on for ice and beverages and the other for food. There are two coffee makers so we had one for regular and one for decaf! That was a nice touch. Great Escapes also left us a small basket of a few necessities and the kitchen has spices, but you do need to bring most everything for food and cleaning, though each bathroom has a dispenser of hand soap, another nice touch. And the multiple light switches are labeled- you can tell the owners have really thought of ways to make their home easy to love. There is a screened in porch for the master bedroom and a screened in dining room as well, with wrap around decks on the top 2 floors. So lots of space for couples privacy and lots of space for us all to get together. The pool is great, and after we decided you didn't need to be a kid to use it, we all had fun on the water slide. Lots of loungers, an umbrella table, chairs, and pool toys as well. The hot tub was such a treat. The pool and hot tub were super clean when we arrived on Saturday, and the pool maintenance guy came again on Tuesday. Did I mention the private walkway to the sandy beach right on the ocean? The house is beachy, but not kitchy- soft blues and neutrals, very comfy beds and chairs and sofas. Lots of storage space in the closets, extra blankets and pillows if you need them. We had one terrible rainy day (Tropical Storm Bonnie) but then at 5 pm my son called us out to the deck to see a full arc double rainbow! So I guess you can tell we loved the house, the location and the Outer Banks. This rental is worth every penny for the ocean front location, the pool & hot tub, the charming and comfortable interior and everything you want and need for a great family vacation. Seven thumbs up for our family! We hope to be back in 2018."

  • beautiful home fantastic location

    "We had a wonderful time at this home! The location is perfect with breathtaking views of the sound and a short walk to the beach. We even walked to go Jetskiing and found everything very convenient. There are a few issues that need attention but they are small and the house has so many positives the negatives just seem insignificant."

  • 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!"
