HOT TUB, PET FRIENDLY, OCEANSIDE-SHORT WALK TO BEACH

Duck House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Many Updates: New Downstairs Flooring! New Bedding, New TV in Master, Wireless Internet Added and Free Unlimited Long Distance!!! New Flat Screen TV in the family room. Our home is a few streets back from the center of Duck and also is so close to the beach! We just love the fact that we are on a small private street and only have to walk a few minutes to be at the ocean (300 yards to be exact). We are also so close to the sound and the sunsets at night are beautiful there! Our house is called Duck Soup and is one of the original homes in Duck. We have recently redecorated the cottage and it looks great with so many cute flairs! We've updated the feel but still kept it quaint! This house has an outdoor hot tub right off of the kitchen on a screened in porch. Our kids love it and so do the adults. We also have an outdoor shower for showering after a day at the beach. Remember that we are pet friendly and have a fenced yard for your special family member you don't want to leave behind!

Duck Soup is great for families with kids as the kids can be upstairs in the loft watching movies and the adults can be downstairs watching what they'd like and fixing dinner! Upstairs are 2 bedrooms. One is the master with a king size bed. The master also has a private balcony where you can enjoy your coffee in the morning up in the trees! The 2nd bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds. Both bedrooms share the upstairs bathroom in between the two rooms. Downstairs is the 3rd bedroom with a Queen bed and bath. Upstairs is a loft with a futon, Cable TV, DVD, VCR. Downstairs is the family room/dining room and kitchen. In the family room is the Cable TV, DVD and VCR. We have lots of movies to choose from as well as a few games to play!

Additionally, we have 2 adult and 3 kids bikes as well as chairs and bogie boards in the laundry room. Jump on those bikes and ride up to the quaint shops of Duck or rent a jet ski there and enjoy the sound views. Duck has tennis courts galore and loads of unique shops and restaurants. You can drive down to the Wright Brothers Memorial or visit the aquarium or many of the lighthouses around. Lots to do, but Duck is the place to stay as it has the quietness you want while on vacation with the proximity to everything!

Located in the Tides section of Duck, you will love your time in the Outer Banks by staying in Duck Soup!

About Liz and Bruce Tuck

Our family has loved this beach house. Our children are young and enjoy the hot tub right off of the kitchen as well as love having the beach right at the end of the street. We live relatively close and are able to enjoy our house in the off season.

Liz and Bruce Tuck purchased this house in 2005

Why Liz and Bruce Tuck chose Duck

Proximity to the beach- 300 yards away at the most! Private street with a fully stocked home- one of the landmarks at Duck. 'Duck Soup' is so close to the quaint village of Duck (less than 8/10 of a mile) with lots of shopping, restaurants, jet skis, boating, fishing options. The best in the Outer Banks!

What makes this house unique

Our cottage is pet friendly so you can have your precious 4 legged friend with you while you relax. You can walk to the beach and to the shops of Duck or take our bikes on the bike path and take in the sights of the Outer Banks. The sound and the ocean are minutes away!

Great Place for a long weekend

  • 4 of 5
Duck Soup was a great rental. The house was very easy to get to, easy to get in and very clean when we arrived. The furniture in the general areas was nice and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and had a lot of items to assist with cooking. It was also nice to have the grill. The downstairs shower was great for the dogs to be able to rinse the sand off down there. Also it being fenced in was really nice to just let the dogs out back. VERY close to restaurants, some even within walking distance. If you are going to be going to the beach often and bringing a lot of stuff (coolers, umbrellas, etc.) i'd suggest bringing a wagon or using the car to drop them off at the walkway to the beach. It looks like it would be a quick easy walk but when it's hot and humid it becomes tiring fast.

The only complaint is that the beds are a little stiff and we didn't very well because of this. Wasn't expecting too much though so not a deal breaker.

Loved this cozy little beach home nestled in the charming town of Duck. So happy we could bring our dog, she felt right at home too. Short walk to the beach, rode the bikes downtown to enjoy the quaint little shops, not to mention delicious food! All around great experience, home had everything we needed. Hope to return again soon!

Great vacation at Duck Soup

  • 4 of 5
We just got back from a weeks vacation at Duck Soup. We were there with another family and there were 7 of us. We loved having the three bikes to ride into Duck where we enjoyed the live music and Duck Donuts. The bogee boards/umbrella were fun for us all to have at the beach and we all enjoyed the hot tub. Liz and Bruce were easy to reach when we had questions. We will definitely think of staying here again!

My wife and I had a great time at Duk Soup. We brought our dog along who also had a wonderful time. Beach and shops are just a short walk away. House is very clean, cozy and quiet. Has small older fixtures and appliances, but it adds to the charm. Owner was easily reachable via email. Would definitely recommend it to any family, especially if traveling with a dog.

Nice house, location, at the right price...

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend at the start of the offseason. The owner was very accommodating with coming up for less than a week during the offseason.
The house was as advertised. While nothing, from beds to furniture, is in new condition, it was all very well cleaned - even the kitchen (which is where we have always noticed cleaning issues in house rentals) was in very clean condition. There were no issues that arose to the level of contacting the owner. We thought the windows could use an exterior clean (lots of spiderwebs) and the enclosed porch with the hot tub could use a fresh coat of paint.
The beach is a 5 minute walk, within a block, and the town of duck is a 15-20 minute walk (depending on what you are trying to walk to). The house was spacious for 5 people, but would be very tight at occupancy of 10.
All in all we were very satisfied with the price, location, and condition of the house for a long weekend for a small family.

Clean, Cozy GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This location CANNOT be BEAT !! We rode bikes the entire stay - everywhere! Went to town shopping, walked to the beach, Rode in for a night time cocktail at red sky cafe. We had our 3 children and our dog. They kids loved the loft area of the house and could retreat up with games, books etc....Since access is so easy to all the cute shops and the beach I am going to book again for a girls weekend. The owners are great to work with and very responsive. We called with a question and they were helpful and easy to reach. Thank you for a wonderful stay. This house is a great deal for the price!
