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!

Reed & Joy Cook purchased this house in 2006
Why Reed & Joy 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!!
