OCEANFRONT CONDO - SEE DOLPHINS AT DAWN FROM YOUR DECK!

Duck Condo Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront View; Seconds To The Beach; 1 Bedroom, 2 Bath Sleeps 4-5 Easily

This is a beautiful, newly decorated condo located just steps to the beach! Our condo is on the 2nd floor with fantastic views of the ocean and ocean front pool from every window. The large deck right off the living room is the perfect spot to relax to the sound of the surf, to watch the sun rise and dolphins play at dawn (or all day!) in the ocean, or to idle the day away. Bring your binoculars or use ours for close ups of the dolphins, pelicans, seagulls etc. Our unit offers a master bedroom with king bed, two full baths (unique and super convenient for a family) sleep sofa queen bed, hallway XL single berth bed, fully appointed kitchen (also new espresso and coffee maker, blender, toaster, dishwasher!), two flat screen TVs (living room and master bedroom), free WiFi, brand new deck swing, new keyless entry system, and much more. Please note our condo is on the second floor of a three story building with stairs and no elevator.

Our beach-- only steps away from our condo -- features coastal dunes, soft creamy sand, nice surf and great beach combing. We have beach chairs and boogie boards for your use during your visit.

In addition to our beach front, our condo community has an outdoor pool, outdoor grills, basketball and tennis courts, pool side restrooms, and oceanfront showers and laundry facilities.

We are only a short 15 minute walk to the lovely, historical village of Duck where you can enjoy the lovely shops, buy groceries, eat at great restaurants and cafes, buy books and sip coffee at Duck Cottage, rent bikes to ride on the jogging trails, walk the sound-side boardwalk for bird watching, and rent canoes, kayaks and other water sport equipment.

Bring your binoculars to bird watch and get great close ups of dolphins in our surf. Superb viewing from our deck!

We keep our reservations calendar up to date so check it out to reserve now!

We have been coming to Duck for almost two decades to vacation. Each time we were here we would fantasize about owning a little something of this wonderful island to enjoy whenever we could. Finally, we took the plunge this past Fall and now own Dolphin Dawn. It is just the right size and is our little place to escape to when the pressures of real life get to us. We hope you too will find that peace of mind and sense of rejuvenation that we get each time we come back to Dolphin Dawn. We look forward to sharing it with you! We hope you will select Dolphin Dawn as your vacation rental and help us with providing great reviews to share with future vacationers.

Mike and Mary Hayward purchased this condo in 2012

Dolphin Dawn is located right on the ocean on one of the most beautiful east coast beaches in the U.S. The town of Duck is a quaint coastal village with super friendly folk and wonderful shopping, dining and many fun things to do. You can rent kayaks, canoes, bikes, tandem bikes, tc. to enjoy the many water activities Duck has to offer.

Our favorite thing about Dolphin Dawn is the oceanfront location and view. When you step out on the deck the view and sound of the surf is the most magical sound in the world! We have a brand new porch swing on our deck and have enjoyed watching the sunrise, seeing the dolphins play, while sipping our coffee or an evening glass of wine. Perfect.

Very clean with a gorgeous view of ocean. Everything we needed for the stay was available for us to use. Owner was very informative prior to check-in and the personal access code for door-lock control was much appreciated. Walking distance
(> mile) to town of Duck and a fantastic boardwalk along the sound which also bordered quaint shops and nice restaurants. (Ate at "Roadside Grill and "Cravings" - both had great seafood.) Took chauffered driving tour of beach to see wild horses. Relaxed in the condo and sat on porch, watching ocean. (Watched some "March Madness" games late into the night on big-screen TV in living room.) Hope to return in warmer weather!

Owner's Response: Happy you found Dolphin Dawn so perfect for your stay and that you enjoyed the amenities, the fabulous view of the ocean, and walking to the lovely and quaint town of Duck. Watching March Madness on the flat screen is fun when the weather of March is doing its thing! See you again soon!

Great Condo!!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dolphin Dawn. The pictures are exactly how it is. The view is wonderful and beach access really is RIGHT THERE! The condo was sparkling clean, very well-equipped, has comfortable furniture including a great bed. It's sunny with lots of windows for natural light, and was perfect for our trip to OBX. The owners were very easy to work with and made sure that we had all the info we needed for access to the condo and using the WIFI. We found activity and restaurant guides they provided very helpful. We enjoyed the deck and seeing the dolphins playing in the morning! We had everything we needed for making our meals, watching TV, or just hanging out. The location is great for access to restaurants, shops, and other sightseeing, but it's quiet and peaceful because it's at the end of a road in a residential area. The condo property is well-maintained, and we liked that we had a reserved parking space. You do have to carry your gear up 2 flights, so it might not be the place for someone with disabilities, but we were prepared for that, and we didn't have any problem managing it. We highly recommend that if you are looking for a place to stay at OBX, this is it!

Owner's Response: Delighted to know you had a great time at Dolphin Dawn and that you saw the dolphins from the deck. They are the namesake of the condo and never disappoint! We are so pleased you found the restaurant information helpful and nearby amenities fun. Happy to know you enjoyed our close to the center of Duck location, and also enjoyed the quietness that is so special to our location. Thanks so much!

The condo was clean, tasteful and the perfect size for 1-2 people. You can't beat the location or the view. Loved the porch swing. The kitchen is well-stocked, although leaves little room for storing food. Overall a great place to stay.
Recommended for:  Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed the porch swing and the condo. Nothing beats the view of the surf from the swing. We will rearrange our kitchen offerings to make more room for guests' food. Thanks for the great feedback!

Our condo is located in the much sought after area of Duck. The village of Duck is quaint, beautiful and welcoming with wonderful local shops, cafes, grocery stores, restaurants and water sports entertainment. Duck also has a unique coastal boardwalk that provides great bird watching over the Sound and beautiful sunset vistas. Great for families who wish to walk around Duck after a fantastic day on the beach.

For car trips and sight seeing during rainy days, you must visit Jockey's Ridge, the east coast's largest sand dune and site of the Wright brothers first flight! Visit the Wright Brothers national monument and museum and learn about our country's aviation history and first flight.
