SERENE BEACH COTTAGE - DUCK / SANDERLING

Sanderling House Rental Photos and Description

4 bdrms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 outside shower, Sleeps 8

Duck Forever

Vacation in a brand new cedar shake home just a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Draped by age-old live oaks, this beautifully crafted 2,600 square foot vaulted ceiling house offers two master bedrooms with king beds on the lower floor. Above, there is a queen bedroom and bunk room with four twins, which share a Jack and Jill bathroom. All bedrooms have flat screen televisions. The beautifully appointed bedrooms are accompanied by a great room with a fireplace, flatscreen television. large dining bar, kitchen with Bosch dual-fuel range, double door refrigerator with ample freezer drawer, and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen. On the Albermarle Sound side of the great room is a comfy living room with a flatscreen television and on the ocean side is a bright reading room set apart by solid fir pocket doors for quietude or an afternoon nap. The house has WiFi and toll-free long distance telephones in case cell service is low.

Our neighborhood, Sanderling, features a new pool on the Soundside along with tennis courts and a boat ramp. The Sanderling Inn, across the street, has an outside bar, nightly fire pit with local musicians, and two of the area's finest dining establishments...the Life Saving Station and Kimball' Kitchen. A terrific spa is also available.

Nature is one of the many highlights of the Outer Banks. Most any night there are deer, fox, and bunnies roaming the neighborhood. During the day, dolphins feed on the shoals and entertain beach goers...no binoculars needed. A 400-year-old herd of Spanish mustangs roams the dunes about ten miles north of our home. Several companies offer excursions to see the herd or you can take your own four-wheel-drive vehicle onto the beach to try to find the ponies on your own.

Local seafood is abundant. For cooking at home there is no better place to purchase fish than Carawan's on the 158 Bypass. This longtime purveyor features locally caught tuna, snapper, grouper, Mahi Mahi, shrimp, blue crabs, mussels and much more. Go to Maine if you want lobster.

For dining out, there are many choices. The Paper Canoe is walking distance and showcases the spectacular sunsets over the Albemarle Sound. In the town of Duck, there are Red Sky, Roadside Grill, Cravings, and Blue Point restaurants. For casual meals in Duck, the Duck Deli is your best bet. A short drive south to the beach road there is the Rundown Cafe. Anything but rundown, this gem features creative fare including Mahi Mahi burritos. Another southwestern flavored restaurant is the Bad Bean on the 158 Bypass. The smoked beef brisket tacos and burritos are scrumptious.

History lovers get ready for some treats. A short drive south of our house is the site of the Wright Brother's inaugural flight. The museum and outdoor attractions there are a National Park. Further south in Manteo is Fort Raleigh. This is where Sir Walter Raleigh founded the Lost Colony. The gardens and fort are definitely worth a stroll and the outdoor drama depicting the colony's settlement and mysterious demise is terrific for all ages.

Lighthouse fans will find four exceptional examples on the Outer Banks. The closest to Sanderling is the Currituck Light, which is about eight miles north of Duck Forever. This is a beautifully maintained light that can be climbed to reveal spectacular views. Also within a day trip adventure are Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras, and Ocracoke Island Lighthouses. The first two are open for climbing.

Water sports are very popular in the Outer Banks. Just across the main road there is a local company that will set you up with jet skis, parasailing, kayaks, paddle boards, and the like. Or bring your own kite board for fast runs on the Atlantic.

Golf courses abound in our area. We most highly recommend Nags Head Links, which is about a 30-minute drive south. Leave your driver in the bag. This is a tight course that runs along the sound. If you miss the fairways, you'll likely be using a different ball for your next shot.

Shore, pier or deep sea fishing are very popular in the area. There are multiple companies that will set you up, but our favorite is Bob's Bait and Tackle in the center of Duck.

So whether it's peace and quiet you seek on a private beach, a family-friendly neighborhood without traffic, or some of the nation's most popular historic sites, Duck Forever is the best value and newest property in the neighborhood. We are already booking for 2015.

A WONDERFUL ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

Owner's Response: We always get a kick when guests question the trees while searching for a beach house. Then the experience comes back the same, every one marvels at the canopy the trees have on the home and street. We never had a hurricane issue because they break the storm winds up.
The private neighborhood makes the beach seem private as well in our area of Duck.
Thank you for your kind words!

WONDERFUL HOUSE, WONDERFUL HOST, STEPS FROM BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time here. The house was beautiful, clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. The tree-lined street and wooded lawn really gave it a secluded feel, yet we were just yards away from the sun and surf. The owner clearly takes great care of the property and house. Everyone had a good time, from age 4 to 74. Thanks for making our first say in OBX a memorable one. I couldn't imagine staying in one of those giant party houses further south when this is a perfect home away from home.

Owner's Response: Glad all in your group found the home enjoyable. The Sanderling section of Duck is some thing different and special with the trees forming a canopy over our street offering the best of both worlds!

Henry

PERFECT COTTAGE IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at Duck Fore Ever, which is perfect for our family. The cottage is immaculately clean and well appointed. It's clear that the owners actually use and care for this house because the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly want, unlike many rental-only places, which have a bare minimum of kitchen equipment. There are even some staples (spices, salt & pepper, sugar, olive oil, etc.) and basic cleaning supplies in the cabinets which you can use so that you don't have to buy every single item when you arrive. The house is in a quiet area tucked back in the woods on a lovely lot, yet it's only about a 2 minute walk to the beach. The owner is very good to work with: immediately responds to emails, gives you his cell phone number in case of emergency, and is helpful about ensuring that we have a nice time (sent us lots of helpful info about things to do in the area, good places to eat out, etc.). This is a great little cottage that we plan to keep returning to year after year.

Owner's Response: It is nice to know the extra steps we take to build a returning guest list is recognized! In todays busy world, we all are to quick to pick at the negatives we encounter and then let the positive experiences go by with out a compliment, thank you for taken the time to write such a note.
