Duck House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Spectacular Ocean and Sound views await you in this charming

waterfront vacation get-a-way in Duck. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac and only steps from the Currituck Sound, 'Life's A Joy!' is perched on one of the highest dunes in the area offering breathtaking ocean and sound views. Your own pool, which can be heated in the off season, features whirlpool jets and color changing lights that will refresh and delight the whole family. Just a stroll up the road,exactly 1 mile to be exact,is the picturesque coastal village of Duck, a shopper's paradise featuring many one of a kind shops,boutiques,and exceptional restaurants, some of which are waterfront.

The picturesque resort village of Duck has a split personality. On

one hand it's a sleepy hamlet ideal for families craving a quiet

beach vacation. Delightful cottages fill the village from sea to

sound; there are no hotels and only one B & B. Duck's lively side also boasts activities galore. The sound side waterfront area

features para sailing, kayak and jet ski rentals, plus sail boat and windsurfing outfitters. The bike path running the length of the

village is traveled with early morning exercisers, tots on bikes, and inline skaters and provides a scenic trail on the easy trek to and from the village.

The entire area is a fisherman's paradise: from convenient shoreline fishing to full day ocean excursions out to the Gulf Stream for the really big ones. Take in some serious crabbing from the sound pier adjacent to your home, visit the famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse or the even closer Currituck Lighthouse. Take a short drive down the road to see the site of the Wright brother's first flight, or experience Manteo Island's unforgettable live performance of the Lost Colony outdoor drama under the stars. For golfers, there are four public courses nearby. If adventure's your game: you can set off in search of the wild Spanish mustangs of Corolla often seen frolicking on the secluded northern beaches or ride the free ferry to Ocracoke Island to hunt down Blackbeard's ferocious pirates.

Here on the Outer Banks, there's something to do for everyone. Or if you prefer, do nothing at all but kick back, relax by the pool, and enjoy that glorious OBX sunrise & sunset!

About Reed Cook

Hello! We are Reed & Joy Cook and live just outside Richmond, VA along with our teenage son Joseph. We always loved vacationing on the Outer Banks so we decided to buy the perfect get-a-way in the most perfect location: Duck. We're sure you will find it a perfect place for you and your family to get-a-way from it all too! Come and stay anytime, we'll leave the light on for you!

Reed Cook purchased this house in 2006

Why Reed Cook chose Duck

It's a cozy and comfortable beach cottage. Close to the beach. Close to the Village of Duck. Right beside the Currituck Sound. Sits up high so you can see for miles and miles. Very private and peaceful on our cul-de-sac street. And it has a great pool!

What makes this house unique

Close to everything but out of this world!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful experience staying here! Home is immaculate & clean, nicely furnished, and has amazing water views. Sunroom is breath taking! Nice floor plan with the living area on the upper level with expansive decks and great views in every direction. Loved the private pool which was crystal clear and well maintained. Our kids used the bikes daily and also had scooters which we didn't even know about. House is very private yet close to the ocean and town of Duck. We'll be back! Thanks!!

Just the best!

We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The house was perfect for us and our family. Though the water heater conked out one afternoon, it was replaced the next morning by 10am! We loved the view of the sound... the best way to start the morning with a cup of coffee! The grand-kids loved the pool (as did we), and the town of Duck was lots of fun.

Hurricane Arthur came and went. The house was buttoned down... no leaks, loss of power, etc. Very well built!

We look forward to coming back for many years!

Highly recomend it !

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to the outer banks - and we had a great time. The house was perfect for us , there were 6 of us, so there was plenty of room. You could easily accomodate 10 -12 people. The house and the pool area were very clean - and the views were as advertised - from the sun room or the deck (s) the sunsets were beautiful. Also, pretty amazing views from the dock as the sun sets. There was a TV in every bed room , a big screen tv in the living room - with quite an assortment of movies to pick through . We took advantage of the beach for a couple of days , just relaxed by the pool on a couple of others - and if you golf (3 of us are avid golfers) - there are several beautiful public courses within 1/2 hour - and we had no problem getting next day tee times. My wife and daughters made several shopping trips into Duck and the surrounding areas , and had a great time shopping the waterfront stores. I think we ate out 5 of the 7 nights we were there , there are tons of restaurant options. On the last day , we booked a tour to see the wild horses of Corolla ... amazing and extremely interesting history there . So, we had a great time and hope to go back . The owner , Reed Cook , was very nice and easy to work with throughout the whole process and I would have no problem recomending this house to anyone considering a vacation on the outer banks.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This home is very relaxing. Have been here every year for the last 8 years and every time I enjoy myself. Beach is close and not crowded. Town of Duck is friendly and great for shopping and souvenirs. New park is fun for the kids. I especially like the pool - spend hours swimming and catching up on my reading. Every night is Sunset night with the spectacular views.
Thanks for the memories!

We had a great time at Lifes a Joy. The view were outstanding. The beach is a very short distance away and you can also walk to it. This town of Duck is very nice. We had a great time.
