About The Owner

We live in Columbia,MD.My husband is a structural engineer and I am an anesthesiologist.We have two daughters in college.We all love the beach and the water sports.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Duck

We discovered Duck over 20 years ago and

kept coming back every chance we got.

We always rented a house on the sound side,because we love to windsurf and it was

easy to access the water.We love our location in Duck,because it is on the sound,

but the beach is only 10 minutes walk.

Ships Watch community has great amenities

including a great pool and tennis courts.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the sound side location of our house.The sunsets you can watch from the deck are incredible!

The Sunset Grill Restaurant is a close walk

from our house and Tommie's Market is very convenient for shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed every single second of our vacation. Kayaking, surfing, swimming, eating, drinking, kite flying, fishing, etc... the list goes on. The home was perfectly appointed with absolutely everything we needed!

Family gathering

This is an amazing house; spacious and well appointed, and just perfect for entertaining.
We met family on the Outer Banks from other parts of the country. We bought seafood and cooked at home on one very enjoyable evening. The house is located perfectly for sightseeing and is near many good restaurants. We would love to visit again next year.

We'll Be Back

We'll Be Back
  • 5 of 5
We usually don’t write reviews, which makes us feel guilty, whether the experience was especially good or bad. But our stay we spent at this home in Ship’s Watch last week warrants comment.

And comment of the most positive kind.

Whether a veteran to coastal homes or wondering what to expect, you will be pleased. First, trust the website description and photos. We still remember a sepia-toned website for a B&B in Toronto that has kept us dubious of such things! But, this one tells the truth. Clean, spacious, equipped, and ready. We needed to buy nothing except food. And check-in and check-out instructions are few, easy, and make sense.

If you think an automobile is an A-to-B-&-back appliance, skip this short paragraph, but if you care about your car, you will find the paved drive and large, covered parking a nice feature, especially in a salt-water environment.

As you may know (and will soon find out), the OBX can be trafficky, especially at weekend arrival and departure “rush hours.” But this property sits well off the road, so from a sound and safety point of view, you may as well be miles from anywhere. Yet, you aren’t. You are a short walk to “town,” and an even briefer stroll to the beach.

This home sits a few feet in from the sound, i.e., not on the Atlantic side. Quite frankly, we much prefer the sense of serenity that comes with quieter waters. Moreover, while sitting (and sipping something!) on the back deck, the sunsets are stunning, and the sunrises are equally dramatic as they light up the sound, distant shore, and sky in a literally breathtaking way.

The boardwalk in Duck has been extended and is now almost a meandering mile long. Wide, well-designed, and safe for all ages and abilities, it is as pleasant a way to see sunset as can be. There is a reason that everyone you meet along that wooden path smiles.

The owners are reachable and accommodating if an issue arises. In our case, it was simply for an extension — for reasons you may infer from the foregoing. But that same ready access is comforting for responsible guests, too, when one stays in another’s home, even if rental property.

Negatives? Uhm, we had to leave!

Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My family--me, husband, three little kids--and my parents stayed here last weekend and half of us (the younger and older set) cried when we left. The house was not just clean and spacious, but the owner kind and responsive (she let us shift our dates around at the very last minute).

The house is in a great location--just a stone's through (or bike ride, or even a nice walk) from all the action in downtown Duck right on the sound. My kids watched the sun sink into the horizon every night, cheering when they found the moon. They loved the good-sized backyard, and I loved the long driveway that kept them away from the busy road when they played outside. We walked about 1/2 mile to the beach every day, and soaked up the available amenities: pool, tennis, playground.

Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Perfect House by the Beach

  • 5 of 5
This house is, I think, the nicest I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. With its tranquil deck overlooking the sound at the back where we could and would watch the most spectacular sunsets, its beautiful open layout that makes for the most perfectly relaxed and tranquil atmosphere, and the incredible beach a stone's throw away, my week there was fantastic. The beach is wonderful, stretching for miles and miles, and the waves are excellent fun. Special mention also goes to the (hot) outdoor shower, which, after a day on the beach, makes for the most enjoyable showering experience ever!
The house is beautiful, and perfectly maintained; and it was a pleasure to cook, to eat, and to entertain there. It'd be the perfect place to write a Ph.D dissertation - except perhaps for all the fun you'd be having on the beach!

Dream hose

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful weekend at a wonderful home. Home, not house - it was so perfect. Looks right out on the water. Tastefully decorated with all the amenities. It is the ideal place for a family or a few couples. Plenty of room for socializing and plenty of privacy when you want that. Close to everything - ocean beach, great pool, fantastic restaurants (although the kitchen invites you to stay put) and lively bars, if that is your thing. It was the best place to lay back and just relax. I hope to be back!

Wonderful top-of-the-summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The house is lovely, open, and fully equipped with a screened porch for eating, a wonderful deck, gorgeous views of the sound, and great living room for quiet evenings and movie-watching. Beautiful setup for us, our teenaged daughter and her friends -- kayaking on the sound, ocean within minutes, tennis, pool, and village of Duck within easy walking distance for shopping, boardwalk, ice cream, books. We had a fabulous time! Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful place.
