  • Relaxing, clean and just perfect!

    "This was our second year in a row staying at this wonderful house. It is in such a perfect location. Very close to town, but not too close. Owners have made some great upgrades since our first time. The roof top deck being one of them. The view of the stars is phenomenal and we were up there every night. Our family of four (me, husband, two boys) fit perfectly in this house. It is equipped with everything you need, nicely decorated, plenty of space for 4-6 people and a very short walk down the block to the uncrowded beach. The beach is just great. I truly can't say enough about this house. The owners are very nice and easy to work with too! I will stay here every time we come to visit the OBX."

  • Great value for the money

    "Actually our stay deserves 4 1/2 stars. This roomy house, situated on a quiet tree lined street, was spotless when we arrived, is only a 1/2 block from the ocean, w/4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths and an especially convenient outdoor shower. Also a screened in porch for outdoor meals. Anyone can be quite comfortable. The kitchen is cheerful and modern and we brought every type of food item we could think of which all fit nicely into the refrigerator. There was a good supply of dishes, glasses, barware, and eating utensils. Additionally, the house was well stocked with cookware. However, the owner should have advised us to bring extra paper towels and bathroom tissue (we had 4 little kids with us). It's a long ride to Harris Teeter to pick up these things. We brought charcoal to use the Weber kettle but the one at the house had a broken lid and rusty grills. It is time for a new one. We still managed, however, to cook our steaks outdoors. All in all, if you are looking for a four bedroom house I think "The Simple Life" is great value for the amount you will be spending. Our vacation was great."

  • FALL into Duck

    "Just returned from a brief (3 night) but spectacular stay at this beautiful, perfectly situated, well appointed Beach home. We couldn't decide if we were in a serene mountain setting or an oceanside resort community. This home has it all! There were only 4 of us, but this home was perfectly laid out for a large family gathering. We spent our mornings with coffee on the awesome wrap porch, our afternoons on the beach, and our evenings dining out at one of the many excellent restaurants suggested by the Autlers in their package of information, well thought out and delivered in advance of our vacation. Their wealth of information gave us an opportunity to plan our days and evenings prior to arrival. This was one of our most pleasant vacations and experiences...ever. Thank you!!"

  • 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!"
