Guestbook comments from the owner

We hate to leave tomorrow! We love the house – so well furnished and equipped. I think October is perfect, hardly any traffic and so peaceful. We needed a good rest. Our favorite restaurants are the Blue Point Grille, & Colington Café. Great food. We enjoyed the walk into Duck and the beach. We drove down to Rodanthe to see the “Nights in Rodanthe” house. People were so nice. The wild ponies of Corolla aren’t very wild but the beach is gorgeous. Don’t miss the Wright Bros. Nat. Park in Kitty Hawk. Best of all for a bird watcher was the Pea Island Nature preserve. Beautiful birds and scenery. Forgot to mention – saw two red foxes come through the yards on Widgeon Drive. Life is good. ? Lynchburg, VA



John called later and said "The home was truly five stars. Perfect."

First trip to the Outer Banks, and it won't be our last. The Byrd Sanctuary offers a spacious, clean, beautifully decorated home suitable for couples or large family. The views are lovely especially from the ship's watch, a favorite spot for cocktails and sunsets. Short walk to the beach and many quaint shops and eateries a short drive away. . Not for the handicapped because of the many steps, but good exercize for the rest of us! One can easily buy some groceries and spend an entire week ( or two) here without even getting in your car. Loved it!!

Byrd Sanctuary, September 2009

  • 5 of 5
I have never rented a house in the Outer Banks before and so I went solely on the description of this property on Home Away. I am more than pleased to tell you that it was all that I expected and more. The house was clean and perfectly stocked in the kitchen with everything you would want or need. The location was perfect! It was a short walk to the ocean and views of the sound and ocean were visible from the deck. Bryan was great to work with as well. You do need to bring all that you will need to live.. including toilet paper in this case! Something we learned upon arrival. The town is lovely..great restaurants.. shopping etc. One caveat! Plenty of stair climbing in the home .. good exercise before relaxing on the beautiful deck with the sound of the ocean, the gentle breeze and the incredible stars at night.. Enjoy!

Being situated between and with a view of the ocean and the Currituck Sound provides outstanding opportunities for a variety of water sports as well as beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Whether by bike, foot or car, you are just minutes from specialty shops and gourmet restaurants in the quaint village of Duck. The new Duck town park and amphitheater are complete and in full swing, with jazz festivals, theater performances and children's programs. Also, yoga-on-the-green, and other activities are scheduled throughout the week. Don't miss the new boardwalk, especially for sunset and nature strolls on the Currituck Sound.

Nearby are golf courses, indoor and outdoor racket sport facilities, health spas, miniature golf, and lighthouses of the Outer Banks. Safe bike trails now stretch over the entire length of the Outer Banks. Bike right from the home. You may also enjoy visiting the home of the Wright Brother's first flight, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the bird watching sites in sanctuaries used by winged migrants traversing the Atlantic flyway.
