The property was exactly as described. Photos on website are accurate. Owner was prompt on returning emails and recommended some great places to eat. This property was great with small children. We arrived approximately 1 day after hurricane Arthur, which led to some rough surf. It was nice having the pool as an alternative for swimming. The beach located about 75 yards from the property is gorgeous, we spent the days body surfing and boogie boarding. Lots of surfers and paddleboarders for entertainment. On the last day of our trip, we were just getting out of the water and a couple of dolphins swam about 25 feet away from us! Perfect ending to a great week. There was a ton of wildlife around the property (deer, grey and red fox) Next year we plan on renting a paddleboard for the week in Duck (about$150/wk), looks like a lot of fun.
Restaurants we liked in Duck:
1) Roadside Grill (great for lunch, very pricey for dinner IMO)
2) Cravings (located on side of gas station.... watch the masses fill their gas tanks while enjoying delicious scallops!) place was on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives with that guy with the frosted tips.
3) Duck Donuts- not a big donut family, but the kids enjoyed watching them being made to order......Maple Bacon was amazing!
Our favorite meals of the week were at : (both places were awesome!! 15 min drive from Duck)
1) Food Dudes: Kill Devil Hills
2) Tortugas' Lie: Nags Head
My kids loved the fishing charter I booked out of Manteo (30min from condo) with Capt. Mark Kearns of rockoncharters.com He specializes in trips catering to children, check out his website if your thinking about taking the family fishing, he's a great guy, will definitely rebook with him next year.
Was a great week. Thank you! Would highly recommend property to others.
