Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at Seaclusion in Duck for many years. This year, for girls week, my best friend's boyfriend planned a surprise proposal on the beach! Although he " crashed " the beginning part of girls week, it was a life changing moment we will remember forever! He hired a professional from Florida, to help him build a sand sculpture. He asked her to marry him on the beach. Unforgettable!

Our next unforgettable event was the addition of another little girl to our group! My daughter Quinn was born in April, and this OBX vacation was her first visit to the beach and the pool. Seaclusion will forever be treasured in my heart because of the memories made here.

Every morning, we made it down to the beach for a sunrise walk and even walked in to town one morning. We noticed the new updated Wee Winks market (what an improvement!!) and many new and interesting shops. Our crowd ranged in ages 2 months to Grannies. There was plenty of room for all of us. I especially liked my room with easy access to the hammock swing on the deck, where Quinn was rocked to sleep every day, to the sound of the Ocean waves.

This is our eleventh year at Seaclusion, thank you Karen, for sharing your home with us, and being the central hub for us to relive our own childhood memories while creating new ones for the next generation. Your home is perfect for our girls week destination...we will enjoy all of our wonderful photos taken, until next year's adventure..... same time, same place!

A Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been traveling to the Outer Banks for three years, and “Seaclusion” is the only place we will stay! The amenities this home offers allow you great flexibility. There are wonderful sleep spaces for children and adults, and the great room upstairs offers tremendous views and a warm welcoming space to share time and memories. A fully stocked kitchen and Weber grill out back offer versatility in dining options. There are also many interesting activities to do that are a stone-throw away! From paved bike trail rides into quaint Duck Village and short walks to the private beach, to local attractions that the whole family can enjoy, “Seaclusion” truly has something for everyone—not to mention the pool and hot tub in the back yard, where you can relax and unwind. It is no wonder that our family has been coming here for three summers in a row, and everyone looks forward to the family photo in front of “Captain Seaclusion”! We are already thinking about next summer’s trip!

All We Had Hoped.... and More!

  • 5 of 5
First, let me begin by THANKING Karen, the home owner. Karen was quick to answer any question I had prior to our departure. Once we arrived to the OBX, the home and surrounding area was all she had described. We felt extremely comfortable, safe and at ease in this wonderful beach house, SeaClusion! Not only was our walk to the beach just 3 minutes away, but the beach, itself, was clean, family friendly...and simply, beautiful! Our clean and well maintained home was perfect; well equipped kitchen, kid friendly and spacious! We enjoyed a wide range of activities while in Duck: the backyard pool, para-sailing, a wonderful seafood dinner at the Sunset Grill, hang-gliding (my grandson...not me! :-) , bike rides to town (really, only about a 15 min. walk if you don't have bikes), walking the boardwalk, shopping, jeep ride to see the wild horses in Corolla and of course, the beach! We will cherish our time at SeaClusion and the OBX for a long time to come!!!

I can't say enough about our girls week in Duck, and Seaclusion. This was a wonderful and quiet "home away from home"! The birthday gal had no clue this wees was her birthday present from all of us. Seaclusion offered the perfect quiet respite us girls love! It was very clean and felt so comfortable - the perfect choice for us!

We enjoyed the short walk to the beach..... so private and beautiful - much closer than we thought!

We sampled many of fine restaurants in the OBX area with very little lines or crowds.... So much to see and experience. We all agreed that it felt so good walking in the door of such a comfortable home at the end of each day....

Our trip to Ocracoke Island was a wonderful adventure and an amazing experience for all of us! I would highly recommend this day trip. Thank you for a vacation filled with lasting memories of our best friends birthday bash with the girls.

BACK AGAIN !

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to the OBX and Seaclusion. The forecast showed rain but it was sunny and beautiful every day. I have to say even if it rained we would still have had the best time ever, being together with my family is priceless and this was the perfect place for all of us. We enjoyed the backyard swimming pool and hot tub. My 3 yr old learned how to swim with a little help from his 2 sisters. The gas grill was a plus this year and was used quite often. Pop-Pop had fun playing the grill master and the kids enjoyed the show from the picnic table. Ghost crab hunting with the flashlights that Karen provided gave us another fantastic memory, I never laughed so hard. We took our shovels and buckets this time and at the end watched the crabs scurry all over the beach when we let them go. Our outings included pizza in Southern Shores, at Karen's recommendation, brought home some Rita's water ice and enjoyed the vast selection of movies at the house. The Ocean was still a little cold for me but it didnt stop the kids or Pop-Pop, another fantastic memory, I keep seeing the smiles on all their faces and still hear their hardy laughter. The only way I could walk away at the end of our week was knowing we will do this again next year. Thank you Karen for sharing your beautiful home; all of your tastefully done decor and all of the games, movies, etc. etc. did not go un-noticed and very much appreciated. WE WILL BE BACK!

2012 family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to the Outer Banks. We loved Duck and our stay at Seaclusion!
We did it all! The beach, Duck Village, sand dunes at Jockey's Ridge Park, the lighthouse and the aquarium. We found Seaclusion cozy and well maintained. The kitchen had everything that we needed, including a large crock pot that we used several times. We loved walking to the beach during the day, and spent several evenings in the backyard hot tub (that was my personal favorite!)
Thank you Karen! Looking forward to seeing you again next year !

Great value & location

Great value & location
  • 5 of 5
This home was great. As described. Clean and comfortable. No bad surprises here. Children friendly and a excellent value for the price and location. We were two families of 5 with 6 young children (under 7 years old) and the short walk to the beach which is just down the street was not a problem. The beach cart and outdoor shower were very convenient. What sets this home apart from the others is Karen's customer service, I'm not sure you can have that with an agency. She's always available for you before, during and after your stay and promptly answers any questions you may have. The only downside to our trip was the traffic getting in and out of OBX on Saturdays but that has nothing to do with the home. We just didn't know about it so we got caught in it. As long as you are aware, you can arrange your schedule to avoid the peak rush. Now you know! Thanks again Karen for the great vacation.

Located close on the Ocean Side of Duck. A short walk to the beach. Our private beach is beautiful and rarely crowded. The surf fishing is perfect at any time. Side walk and Bike path will lead you right into the town of Duck for shopping and dinning. Duck Village is no more then a three minute walk. In Town, you will find wonderful restaurants, uniques shopping. There is a walk way to the sound, with a launch for your kayak. Albemarle and Currituck Sounds are ideal for boating, fishing and fun! Corolla's wild horses have roamed the dunes for four hundred years, and still roam free, but north of Corolla village on the off road beaches.

Other Activities: Great shopping and Restaurants
