Duck House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our Duck Vacation beach house! We have been so fortunate to have more than 65% of our guests come back year after year. That says a lot!! We pride ourselves in making sure the house is updated and refreshed for each season!! This is not just a 'rental'. We enjoy the house in the off season, so it get's much attention and care.

We are located in the community of Colony By the Sea which is within walking distance of the charming village of Duck and a short (less than 10 minute) walk through the dunes (on a private road) to the beach. Colony By the Sea offers amenities including a pool, tennis, basketball, etc.

Here you'll find a well maintained, well equipped comfortable property that is ready for your beach vacation. 4 bedrooms (3 queen, 2 twin) and 2 baths are located on the first floor. Our home can sleep up to 8 but it is more comfortable with 6. The great room, kitchen and dining room are located on the 2nd floor. The spa is located on a private deck on the ground floor along with an outdoor shower and laundry room. Wireless internet is also provided.

Colony by the Sea is a wonderful family oriented beach community. We know you will be happy you’ve chosen our beach house for your vacation!!

About Brenda Campbell

I am an Real Estate Agent in Katy, TX. I try my best to think of all the 'little' items that make a vacation the best, like supplying sand chairs, umbrella's, having a well appointed kitchen etc. The number of repeat guests has been awesome! They take care of the house as if it was there own. Year after year I am amazed as how wonderful these folks take care of our house.

Brenda Campbell purchased this house in 1996

Why Brenda Campbell chose Outer Banks

We love the Outer Banks (been vacationing here for 25 years), but Duck is the best location! Easy walk to the charming village with great shops and wonderful places to dine. If it's a movie or mini golf you want, it's just a short drive up the highway. Then head back home to the relaxing area and away from the craziness up the road! Beaches are uncrowded and clean. Duck is also a very family oriented spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home was perfect for our family. It was an easy walk through the dunes to the beach and community pool. Another easy walk to dining and restaurants. The home was well maintained and very clean. We cooked several meals in the well stocked kitchen. We loved sitting on the deck and watching wildlife in the dunes! A nightly hot tub dip was also a nightly must do! I would definitely recommend this home for a vacation in Duck!

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a few days reprieve and decided on a weekend away in the Outer Banks. She used to come to Corolla as a child so we looked there at first, but were so lucky to find this gem instead! Duck in the spring is simply fantastic and uncrowded; everything we wanted in our retreat. The house, in a word, perfect. Perfect size, perfect location, perfect amenities, perfectly furnished and stocked.

Being that it was just two of us, we had our choice of the four bedrooms. My goal for the weekend was not to be relegated to the room with two double beds. ;-) I think the house could get crowded with too many people, but it felt like a great size for groups up to 6. The upstairs was homey and beachy and set the tone for the weekend. The exposed beams really gave a great feel to the great room. The kitchen had everything we needed from the coffee maker to some great pans and a sharp knife which helped immensely preparing blackened Ahi with a tomato-onion relish. The hot tub was an added bonus and not something to which we normally have access: we took advantage of time to soak our cares away. (Which offset the 45 degree ocean quite nicely, but that's March in the mid-Atlantic for you :-) )

The location of the house gave us quick access to everything we wanted to do. We could easily walk to the beach for morning sunrises, trying not to disturb the deer which we saw each day, and everything in Duck was less than a mile walk down the boardwalk. We never had to fire up the car once we arrived - we simply walked to get mid-morning coffee (at Treehouse Coffee!), lunch (Cravings), groceries (Tommy's Market, with fabulous cookies), and dinner (EASTSIDE!!!!). We're both pretty active, so we bicycled up to Corolla one day, and had great running routes down into Southern Shores each day.

Working with the owners was fantastic - they could not have been more helpful. If you're lucky enough to find availability that matches your schedule, this house will not disappoint!

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to visit. The town of Duck, North Carolina is delightful, the beach is great, sightseeing and so much more. The house we stayed in is cheerful and comfortable. It was a perfect vacation and I definitely will be back again.

First trip to Duck and accommodation selection was perfect! Super cute home & perfect for our group. Loved the decks on front & back of the house. Saw lots of deer & other wildlife. Short walk to the beach although we drove just because of our "stuff". And short walk to shopping and dining areas too. We walk a lot, so loved the board walk, and walking down thru town. Would definitely recommend this home!

we have been staying at this beach house for 7 years and we love it. Our 3 girls were young when we started coming to duck and now two of them are teenagers, they still love coming to the same beach house. It is clean and comfortable, close to the beach and shops. The only reason I would be hesitant to recommend it is because I want to make sure we get our time in again next year! Loads of beach equipment For your use and now 4 more boogie boards that we decided to leave until next year. Well worth a trip

Great Location - nicely furnished

  • 5 of 5

Well kept home with nice decorating touches. Personal but not TOO personal. Well equipped kitchen - yet for our hungry crew a larger sauté pan would be helpful. Modest sized bedrooms but roomy enough for their purpose - sleeping. Living room area very comfortable. Great location - can walk to beach but also can drive with all the equipment. Beach chairs and umbrella in the laundry room was awesome to have on hand and not have to transport. Quiet area, family oriented beach. Beware arriving at check in time as the traffic to make the left turn onto the main road to Duck is really, really bad. Next year, we plan to arrive early - then have lunch in town and walk around before check-in time. The kids already asked to return next year they loved it so much.

Car: necessary

Just about everything you need is a short walk into town. We love walking in the mornings to Duck Donut. They have the best donuts in the world. We love also going to The Cantina for Mexican Food, it over looks the Sound and Roadside Bar & Grill serves great sea food and other local favorites. Tons of restaurants and shopping.
