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 (open between Memorial and Labor Day summer season), 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!

About Mike and Mary Hayward

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

Why Mike and Mary Hayward chose Duck

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was a delight.  We so appreciated the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the kitchen.  The view from the porch was fabulous.  I wish I could package it to bring back to Ohio!

Lovely condo, great location

  • 5 of 5
The condo felt perfect for our family of three. Our preschooler slept in the hallway berth, which was tucked far enough away from the living room to allow the grown-ups to spend time there at night without keeping her awake, but close enough for her to be comforted by a little bit of light and sound as she fell asleep in a new place.

The deck with the swing was lovely, and we sat out there with coffee every morning. One morning, we watched a huge pod of dolphins move through the ocean in front of us.

The pool was a hit with our daughter, as was the swing set on the property. We didn't use the community grills, but we saw others using them most nights.

Finally, we loved the proximity to the shops and restaurants of Duck. We brought bikes and rode into town for supplies, donuts, and walks on the boardwalk (it was fun to chat with people catching crabs off the docks).

Owner's Response: Wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed Dolphin Dawn and found it perfect for your vacation! Watching the dolphins while sitting on the porch swing with your morning coffee is what makes being at Dolpin Dawn so special. So glad you had that chance! We loved hearing that you rode your bikes to town and got to enjoy the town's soundside quaint boardwalk with the little shops, cafes, and coffee spots. Of course the pool and beach were steps away and sounds like you had a great time! We look forward to seeing you again!

Much Needed Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to enjoy a relaxing vacation in Duck. The condo was brand new inside and immaculate. The owners thought of everything! We especially liked sitting on the swing on the deck - the view could not be beat. The location was so convenient - a few steps from the beach, the pool, or the town of Duck. Working with the owners was very easy, and we took their suggestion regarding a good place to eat in town - the Blue Point Restaurant. It's a little pricey, but we wanted to eat out fancy one night. We had a great meal and then strolled the boardwalk after. The only problem we had was initially getting in the front door. We had the combination, but for some reason we couldn't get it to work for a bit - but finally success! I can't tell you how happy we were when we first walked inside the condo and saw how nice everything was and how great the view of the ocean was. We will definitely be coming back!

Happy the you liked the amenities we have put inside and that you found our location super convenient to town, walking is one great way to beat the traffic and also to enjoy all the wonderful sites, shops and boardwalk on the sound side. Duck and Dolphin Dawn are one of the best places to unwind! Glad you did and see you again soon!

Nice vacation

  • 4 of 5
The condo was as advertised, close to the beach with a great view, and close to Duck restaurant and shopping. Because of the heavy traffic on Hwy 12 in and out of Duck, we parked at the end of the street (sea colony and Hwy 12) and walked to Duck. The property itself is older, but it's well maintained. The pool was great. We would have liked to have had some cupboard space for groceries, but they were all taken up with dishes and utensils. We had to stack the groceries on the dinette table. It was quite comfortable for 2 people, although it would be pretty tight with more than that. The mattress pad in the bedroom needs replacing. These were minor things. It's a nice place to vacation!

Owner's Response: Delighted to know you liked Dolphin Dawn and found the close in location convenient for walking to town. The pool is fantastic and the beach is a step away. We will be sure to take some of the kitchen amenities out of the cupboards so there is more room for groceries. Also we will ask our cleaners to get a new mattress pad right away. Thanks for letting us know. Glad you liked your visit and see you again!

Dynamic and fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
This was one of my best rentals ever! The condo was neat and clean with plenty of nice extras- especially in the kitchen. The love and pride from the owners was evident and made me feel right at home. The condo location could not have been any better and we enjoyed every day! We saw fox, deer, and Dolphins almost every day! Best vacation ever!!!
