Overview

Duck Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

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 (open year round unheated) 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 year round (unheated), 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, WaveHi! and Dune Nest. They are just the right size and each one is of of our little places 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!

Perfect autumn get-away!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had such a nice and relaxing time staying at Dolphin Dawn in Duck! Our first time in OBX and it was just the right pace. We saw loads of dolphins and other wildlife, enjoyed the comforts of the condo and the location. The bed was like a hug, the coffee maker perked some strong coffee and the view was spectacular. Thank you for this place and a wonderful get-away.

Dolphin Dawn, Dusk and everything in between!!

  • 5 of 5
Your condo was just what we needed after several very hectic months leading up to our daughter's wedding. The porch can't be beat for the ocean and pool views, dolphin sightings and swinging on the porch swing. The condo itself is very well appointed making it very easy to feel at home. It's also centrally located in Duck making it easy to walk to town or bike on the bike path as we did several times. We really enjoyed the free Jazz Festival, Blue Point restaurant, the boardwalk all along the little shops through town, walking on the beach and exploring the Outer Banks. If you want a relaxing vacation this is the place to be this time of year! Thank you for sharing Dolphin Dawn with us.

Wonderful honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed every minute. Most condo rentals and such require you to be at least 25 to rent but my husband and I are only 23, for that reason I want to thank both owners for trusting us. We loved everything about the space, it was just the right size and absolutely beautiful. We cant wait to vacation here again. Truely spectacular.

Owner's Response: We are very happy to know you had a wonderful Honeymoon at Dolphin Dawn. Making lifetime memories at the beach is one of the best things about visiting Duck and staying at Dolphin Dawn. Hope the many sunrise mornings made your Honeymoon photo album! We look forward to welcoming you and your family again soon! Congratulations on your marriage!

A do nothing week

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful accommodations. Ocean view allowed us to witness spectacular sunrises, and glorious full moon. Just the right size for the 2 of us. A perfect place for us to retreat from our hectic 60+ hr work weeks and do nothing. 2 things: the kitchen sink sprayer squirts sideways if the setting is on "aerator" but not the "sprinkle" setting. Also, as I was vacuuming during cleanup, I bumped the knick-knacks in the corner to the right of the patio doors and knocked them over and broke part of them. They look ok but the backs are broken. Lastly, as my hobby is photography, and we were blessed with spectacular sunrises and moonrises, I'd like to send you prints for your condo. How can I do this? Thank you for a much needed week of relaxation!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased to know you enjoyed Dolphin Dawn and that the spectacular sunrises and moonrises views over the Atlantic provided you with much photographic inspiration! We look forward to your lovely prints! No worries about the knick knacks and thanks for the heads up on the sprayer. We'll get that adjusted. See you again real soon!

Dolphin Dawn

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation. The weather was the best we have had since coming to the Outer Banks. The condo was well furnished and very clean. I was in the swing all week. Also I thought the bed was very comfy. Thank you Mike and Mary for sharing your lovely condo with us.

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!
