Very spacious & clean house! This was our first trip to Duck, and this house was fantastic. Close enough to ocean. Great views. The supply closet was filled with all beach equipment...chairs, toys, beach cart. Kitchen was well stocked and very easy to cook in.
Only drawbacks: tiny ants in kitchen. Learned it happened in many homes this summer. House was treated 4 times. I guess it can't be helped at times. Also, I wish the cleaning crew would've cleaned the spider webs off the deck rails and chairs/benches. Those spiders were creepy!
Owners were very nice! He let me know the dishwasher wasn't working prior to our arrival, and gave us a few options. He was extremely nice and accommodating. Also, I left behind an item and he shipped it to me at no charge.

Our extended family has vacationed in Duck for 30 years. This was our first stay at Duck by the Sea and it was a perfect fit for our family of 6 adults and 3 grandchildren. We had all of the amenities that we needed. Almost all of each day was spent on the beach, but when we were "home" we enjoyed the wonderful views of both the Sound and the ocean as well as the resident deer and foxes playing out back in the evening! We will be renting this property again next year :-)

The house was very clean and it was just a walk away to the beach. Another thing the women in the family liked were the washer and dryer. Moreover, we enjoyed looking at the scenery outside, from the windows. That was so breath-taking as the sun went down, and so was the wonderful breeze in the evening.
This was the second time we stayed in this house and enjoyed it so much. We hope to return to Duck!!

Beautiful beach house inside and out within easy walking distance to the beach. Enjoyed the private decks off of every bedroom and the 3 baths easily accessible from all rooms. You can't beat this house for beautiful sunsets which can be viewed sitting in the living/dining area or outside on the deck with the warm ocean breeze. Hope to return as soon as possible.

We own a home in the same neighborhood, and we always rent an extra house for the week that the whole family comes down. We have done this for years. We are also in a rental program with another realtor.This was by far our favorite house. Our only complaint was that the rental company charges extra to let renters in a few hours early, and, so although the house was checked out and ready for several hours, they claimed it was not ready until exactly 4:00.
