Duck House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

********************OFFSEASON GETAWAY SPECIALS!!*****************

From October 18th, 2014 until April 5, 2015 we are offering GETAWAY SPECIALS for $495 (3 nights) and $525 (4 nights).

Hi! So glad you stopped by! Please email me so that I can send you a website with a TON of photos and more details!

Please check our calendar first, it is always up to date.

The hot tub is up and running through the winter, but the pool opens on April 15, 2015 and closes September 30, 2015. Please also know that the pool does have a salt system instead of a traditional chlorine system. Salt systems are equally effective and much kinder on eyes, skin and clothes. The pool is not heated.

Starting May 3, 2015, we are Sunday to Sunday only until September 30th.

Please email for rates and information. We are a NOT a rental agency, we are the actual house owners. You WILL receive a rapid response! Also, please go to our website link below, and click on Photos & Amenities. You'll see more shots of our bedrooms and interior, as well as hear about things like free towel and linen service - which is included in EVERY rental!

Duck Tape is a fantastic, family-friendly, pet-friendly beach house that truly has it all: one of the largest private pools you'll find anywhere in Duck (and a huge pool deck for easy entertaining), a private hot tub (on it's own deck level, with open, starlight views), a wraparound deck, gorgeous, clean interiors, FREE internet, FREE long distance, and a media center that boasts a 42' flat panel TV with DVD, VCR and surround sound.

The inside of the home has a 'cottage' feel to it, comes with a gourmet-equipped kitchen, and is beautifully decorated and clean. With 5 bedrooms, spacious decking areas full of lounging nooks, a host of features and amenities, this home is ideal for an extended family with children of all. We replace pillows, sheets and towels on an annual basis, and professionally shampoo the carpets several times per year.

The street that this home is on is a quiet road, less than 1 mile long between the Sound and the beach, and right in the middle of the town of Duck. It's an easy, 5 minute walk to the heartbeat of Duck and the boardwalk shops - where you will find some of the best shopping and dining in Duck!

*** EMAIL ME FOR A WEBSITE FULL OF PHOTOS~ I have a website with a full listing of bedrooms, more photos, activities, virtual tours, restaurants and activities so you can plan your vacation accordingly. We spend a lot of the off-season in Duck, so we can give you an 'insider's view'!

The short walk to the beach (~200 yards) makes it easy to hop back and forth between beach and house in case you've forgotten something, or in case you prefer the pool over the ocean.

Duck Tape is designed to make a week at the beach a well-deserved, peaceful, and easy vacation spot. Come and relax in this terrific home, perfectly located between the beach, the shops, restaurants, and galleries of Duck. This is definitely the Outer Banks family vacation getaway that you are looking for.

Ok, so what are the top 5 things to know about us?:

- We are pet-friendly

- We are a Sunday-Sunday rental

- Without traffic, it is 1 hr 15 minutes from Norfolk airport, and 4.5 hours from DC Metro area

- Every rental INCLUDES cleaning, towel and linen service

- We prefer to rent to families

About The Owner

My family has been vacationing in the Outer Banks for almost 15 years. It's our second home, our place to unwind and reconnect - with ourselves and with each other. We love this house, and this location. Just a short 1 minute walk to the beach AND a quick 5 minute walk to town.

Why The Owner chose Duck

I love waking up at 5:30, grabbing a cup of coffee, and meandering down (a 1 minute walk) to the beach and seeing the sun rise. I also love being able to walk (5 minutes) into town and eating or shopping. Really, this house is in the PERFECT location.

What makes this house unique

Imagine this when you arrive:

- Beds made for you when you arrive (no fussing with linens after a long drive!)

- A refreshing dip in our pool that has NO chlorine (we use a salt chlorinator, no stinging eyes!)

- A bottle of wine under the stars in our hot tub that can seat 6-8, with FOOT JETS!

It's all about relax, relax, relax...

Finally Getting Around to Reviewing our Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about what a wonderful time we had here in June 2013. My wife and I had 2 kids, 3 grandparents, and a dog in tow, and there was more than enough room for all of us. The location is fantastic, it's a quick walk to town, and it's centrally located to drive to the local sights. The walk to the beach takes 10 minutes, tops, (if you're walking backwards with your eyes closed). We usually bring along our own beach gear, but after seeing how well stocked the house is on that front, we won't be this year - they have everything you need for the beach. The pool was fantastic, and is a major benefit if you have small children who take midday naps, since you're not stuck sitting around the house killing time while they sleep. The house and grounds are clean and well-maintained. The pictures really don't do it justice. The owner is quick to respond to questions, and has been great to deal with. We're definitely planning on returning this coming summer, and our family can't wait. I'd definitely recommend this rental to anyone who doesn't want to go the same week we do. Also, the Sunday-Sunday rental period is worth it's weight in gold. We learned the hard way one year just how bad traffic on Saturday gets. Sunday traffic is almost non-existent

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! Vacation is supposed to be easy and fun for everyone. That's why my family works hard to make sure that Duck Tape has everything you could ask for. It sounds like we are hitting the mark for you, and we're very happy about that. :-) Looking forward to your stay again this coming summer!

Duck Tape was a Wonderful Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family: grandparents, children & spouses, and 4 grandchildren-from NY, Maryland, Minnesota, & South Carolina totally enjoyed our stay at Duck Tape. The place was immaculate and Juliana did everything to make our stay wonderful. We walked to the beach each day, went to quaint shops (conveniently located in Duck & Corolla) and swam in the pool every day - often 3 times a day. The pool was the central attraction, large and clean and refreshing, and the nearby beach was great for sand castle building and walking at all hours of the day. All our needs were met. A pool person came around regularly to make sure all was well with the pool. The one small concern we had, was attended to promptly.

We had a great time and would recommend this beach home to anyone. It reminded me of my days at our family cottage when I was young. Glad to share the experience with our children.

Great two weeks at Duck Tape in May!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from spending two weeks at Duck Tape. Can't say enough about how nice the home is and being able to walk to everything in Duck. Except for a couple trips to the local Food Lion (5 miles away) and a day trip to Bodie Lighthouse our car stayed parked the entire two weeks.

The home is very comfortable and has everything you could need. 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms were perfect for our 1st week group of 9 adults and more than perfect for my wife and I the 2nd week. Our dogs also enjoyed their stay as the home is very dog friendly.

Being able to walk to the beach in under 5 minutes is spectacular. Having the pool and hot tub was an awesome addition as well to our stay. Pool water was a little chilly for early May but we got used to it. And the nightly 10 minute walk to the sound for sunsets were wonderful.

We love Duck NC as this is our 6th or 7th trip to Duck from Ohio. Such a friendly town and easy to get around in. Some really great restaurant options within walking distance. Juliana has a very nice home and we are so happy with our stay at Duck Tape. Looking forward to a return visit soon - sooner the better! :-)

Loved our Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of children, spouses, and grandchildren loved our stay at Duck Tape. Everything was as wonderful as described. After only a week, it felt like our "home". I really hated to leave. After a morning at the ocean, a sightseeing afternoons, pool time while making dinner and crabbing at the boardwalk before the bait store closed, Everyone wants to come back, Thank you Julie!

Our stay at Duck Tape could not have been any better. The property was just as stated on the website. The property was clean and well maintained and very, very comfortable. The owner was great to us and we plan on coming back. We really enjoyed the hot tub. We did not get to use the pool as it was still to cold to go swimming. Love the location. We recommend this property to family and friends. Thanks for all the hospitality.

Wonderful for family gathering - even in off-season

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend gathering of our family to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. From ages 17 months to 70 years old, we all had a wonderful time and there was something for everyone in this house. We like to cook, and the kitchen was very well equipped. The house had everything we needed for our little children, and the layout of the rooms was just perfect. The furniture was comfy for lounging and all very clean. The location was great - easy walk to the beach and town. And though our weather was blustery, the house kept us happy. We are very grateful for our lovely weekend at Duck Tape.
