This house has everything you need for a relaxing vacation at the beach. The house has two sitting areas on the main level for those who want to watch tv and others that want to look out at the ocean. There are many decks around the house for shade or sun,with the back deck providing excellent views of the beach/ocean.
The master suite on the main level with private br,walk in closet is very spacious. There is another full bathroom outside the master BR and a half next to the kitchen. We had 2 families of 5 and needed to have one person sleep on the pullout or use an air mattress.
A gas grill would be great for convenience. The outdoor shower that is open is great to rinse off the sandy feet before entering the house. plenty of parking.. Found that this part of the beach seemed to be the least crowded as we walked north and south.. If you arrive early , there isn't any beach parking in Southern Shores of Duck without a permit. There is parking in downtown Duck.

This is a very special home with a terrific view of the ocean and great accomodations inside. The openess is delightful. It's clean and well decorated. Also the location is outstanding. Highly recommended.
Check in service was less than five minutes and friendly. The home has an open floor plan and feels more like a home than a rental. Big plus was the new hot tub on the upper deck overlooking the dunes and surf. We loved standing on the deck with morning coffee with an unobstructed view of the beach in both directions. Would have liked screens on doors and windows for ocean breeze without running aC.

We have vacationed in numerous other Outer Banks houses and locals and this may be the best of both. The layout of the house, the view from the living area and decks, and the privacy of the community, all make this a place we would love to return to. Besides a few minor issues due to the home's age and the affects of weather on it, this is the perfect beach rental. We can understand why the price is going up for next year. It was quit that bargin in 2011.
