Thank you Henry for the most very delightful stay!! I was somewhat concerned about the trees - I mean who doesn't go to NC with the hope of getting some sun and tanning opportunities?! But wow, what a blessing those trees were! Not only did they provide a wonderful breeze, but after a few hours at the beach, they were the most welcome respite! This home is tucked into this nice little neighborhood/grove - while the towns and beaches around here may be crowded, this home provides a nice and peaceful escape! And it is exactly as described....a short walk to the beach and a short walk to the Sound, so we were able to witness both beautiful sunrises as well as magnificent sunsets!!! And this is the Best Stocked Kitchen that I have ever experienced in all my vacation rentals! It even has a muffin pan, and big stock pans, and a wonderful array of spices! The home was perfect! It is clean, well stocked, and comfortable! Thanks Henry for sharing your home! If we get back to NC, there is no doubt in our minds that we will come back to Duck Fore Ever!!
