“Pretty little beach house”
We enjoyed our stay. Loved the proximity to Duck village; could walk there and use the walking trail anytime without getting in the car. Loved the proximity to the beach as well - a short walk and we didn't have to cross any busy roads to get there. (A small wagon or cart helps a lot to get your supplies to the sand.) The beach house: the main living space and upper and lower decks were wonderfully bright and well-appointed. If you like to barbecue, we recommend Byog (bring your own grill), or rent one. There were children's and board games galore, but a bit of a mishmash - sort out all the pieces and you've got potentially great rainy-day entertainment for kids. Some beds were a bit concave and one broken, but definitely still sleep-able. Not much room for 'pop-in surprise overnight guests,' so when the description says 'sleeps 8,' plan accordingly and draw the line! Lots of stairs so not for toddlers or elderly - but that's to be expected. Overall, a lovely trip - morning walks on the beach, sun worshipping, and the centerpiece, the ocean, were well worth the trip.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your accommodations. We have asked the owners to let us replace the board games/puzzles, as it makes better sense than trying to sort out all of those pieces! Thanks for your comments! Please stay with us again soon!
“Relaxing, invigorating, and rejuvenating!!”
All in all we had a fantastic week. However we do have a couple suggestions for the house .. A broom would have been very helpful. More towel racks in the master bathroom. Simple beach chairs to use, old fashioned bikes to ride, a hammock on the lower deck, a more comfortable love seat in the room at the peak. Straighten out the games - impssible to use any as parts to all are all mixed together or missing. None of this will prevent our renting again but they would make a more enjoyable vacation. We do hope to return next year. Thank you!!
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your accommodations. I have passed along your suggestions to our property managers, as they will contact the owners. Regarding the games/puzzles: sounds like they would be better off to just buy some new ones! I am all for recycling (usually), however in this case seems more aggravating to try to sort them out…ha! We do hope to see you next year!
We enjoyed this home, it was very clean and cozy. It is located on a quiet street, which dead ends to a private beach access. Our major complaint was that this home is listed as only 350 feet from the beach access and in reality it is more like 350 yards. All and all we really enjoyed our experience with both atlantic Reality and the home.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your accommodations. I have passed along the ‘distance to the beach’ discrepancy to the property manager to double check this information…sorry for any inconvenience. We hope to see you again on your next OBX vacation! PS: We apologize, as the distance to the beach IS 350 yards! It was on the website one way, and in reservation software the other way... thanks for pointing this out to us so that we could fix it!
“Great location, easy access to the ocean, just beautiful.”
We will definitly come back. It was a great place to take a break. Everybody was so nice, the house was great,clean and well decorated. We loved the different balconies. Thank you atlantic Realty and North Carolina.

We really enjoyed our stay. We planned this late in the year and were very happy with the location and the accomadations. The kitchen was supplied very well with anything I needed. I brought some "extra" things from home and did not have to use them! That was a nice surprise. We had plenty of towels also. We were a little further from the beach than I thought but we adjusted to it! We recommend that the beds need new mattresses. They really sank in the middle of the bed and was a little uncomfortable by the end of the week. We loved being so close to the center of Duck and being able to walk everywhere. Everybody from atlantic reality was very helpful whenever we needed anything or had a question they were there to help. We were disappointed in not being able to rent a jet ski through the program with atlantic reality. Everytime we tried to call the message was "mailbox full." The home was very comfortable for us.
Response from the manager As a guest of Atlatnic Realty your comments are very important to us. We will pass along your suggestions to the home owner regarding the mattresses. We are sorry that you were not able to take advantage of the Jet Ski offered by our Fun n' Sun program. Unfortunately the business providing this service had equipment difficulties which left them unable to fulfill their agreement with us. During the off season we will pursue another Jet Ski company and hope to have this amenity back in our Fun n' Sun program for 2012. Again, thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay.
“Nice house, but wasn't very clean”
The house was in OK condition, but it wasn't very clean when we arrived. We bought cleaning supplies (including vacuum cleaner bags and a broom) so we could keep it clean while there. We had several maintenance issues while there but they were addressed quickly. Overall, not a bad house for the money, but it needs some attention.
“Great weather and great family experience”
House was comfortable however the bathroom situation between the two master bedrooms was akward. In addition, the kitchen needs potholders stocked or some indication that the renter needs to bring them. Lastly, making beds which are going to be stripped by a cleaning service on the last day is a senseless requirement. There are also many steps in the home and only bathrooms on the bedroom floor.
“The perfect definition of a relaxing family vacation.”
Loved the place and atlantic Reality was wonderfult to deal with.
“Delightful Duck abode”
We really lucked on on finding this property for our first trip to the OBX from Maryland. We didn't need anything huge, as were are a familiy of 4 traveling with 2 grandparents. The size was perfect. It is about 350 yards from the beach so make sure you have something to carry all your beach stuff in if you have little ones along. Extremely clean, airy and bright. There are a lot of steps inside and out so keep that in mind if you are traveling with someone with mobility issues. Within a 10 minute walk of "downtown" Duck. My only recommendations to the owners are as follows: 1) pony up for wi-fi access. Alot of people work on vacation, not ideal but a reality in this era. 2) get some xeriscaping done outside - get rid of the "grass" - a.k.a. a few weeds trapped in dirt - and drop rock gravel over everything. Apply a few coats of touch-up paint to the outside and you will make the curb appeal as great as the interior of the house (and probably could raise the rent as a result). 3) Owners - pay your bills on time (i.e., cable) - it's embarrasing to your realty company when the renter has to call and say that Charter Communications said the cable was disconnected to said residence. Fortunately, Atlantic Realty was on the ball with that and an a/c issue midweek. Great realty company - would recommend whole heartedly.
“This is a nice house and a good value!”
This is a great beach house with everything you need! Although it is not right on the ocean, it is just a short walk down the street through a lovely, quiet residential neighborhood. The town of Duck is very nice, with lots of shopping. The beach area is not crowded, as there is no public beach access here. The house contains four roomy bedrooms,and two bathrooms on the bottom floor. The top floor is a very spacious great room with a full kitchen, dining area and lots of comfy seating in the den area. There are a lot of steps in the house, so be aware if that is an issue for you. The porches outside are awesome, as well. The rental agency is very easy to deal with. Best of all, linens are included with the beds made, as well as an amenties package.All of that makes for a great value! The only thing that would make it better would be internet access!
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're so glad you had a wonderful vacation. We have passed the suggestion for Internet access onto the homeowner -- great idea!!
