Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Many Updates: New Downstairs Flooring! New Bedding, New TV in Master, Wireless Internet Added and Free Unlimited Long Distance!!! New Flat Screen TV in the family room. Our home is a few streets back from the center of Duck and also is so close to the beach! We just love the fact that we are on a small private street and only have to walk a few minutes to be at the ocean (300 yards to be exact). We are also so close to the sound and the sunsets at night are beautiful there! Our house is called Duck Soup and is one of the original homes in Duck. We have recently redecorated the cottage and it looks great with so many cute flairs! We've updated the feel but still kept it quaint! This house has an outdoor hot tub right off of the kitchen on a screened in porch. Our kids love it and so do the adults. We also have an outdoor shower for showering after a day at the beach. Remember that we are pet friendly and have a fenced yard for your special family member you don't want to leave behind!

Duck Soup is great for families with kids as the kids can be upstairs in the loft watching movies and the adults can be downstairs watching what they'd like and fixing dinner! Upstairs are 2 bedrooms. One is the master with a king size bed. The master also has a private balcony where you can enjoy your coffee in the morning up in the trees! The 2nd bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds. Both bedrooms share the upstairs bathroom in between the two rooms. Downstairs is the 3rd bedroom with a Queen bed and bath. Upstairs is a loft with a futon, Cable TV, DVD, VCR. Downstairs is the family room/dining room and kitchen. In the family room is the Cable TV, DVD and VCR. We have lots of movies to choose from as well as a few games to play!

Additionally, we have 2 adult and 3 kids bikes as well as chairs and bogie boards in the laundry room. Jump on those bikes and ride up to the quaint shops of Duck or rent a jet ski there and enjoy the sound views. Duck has tennis courts galore and loads of unique shops and restaurants. You can drive down to the Wright Brothers Memorial or visit the aquarium or many of the lighthouses around. Lots to do, but Duck is the place to stay as it has the quietness you want while on vacation with the proximity to everything!

Located in the Tides section of Duck, you will love your time in the Outer Banks by staying in Duck Soup!

About Liz and Bruce Tuck

Our family has loved this beach house. Our children are young and enjoy the hot tub right off of the kitchen as well as love having the beach right at the end of the street. We live relatively close and are able to enjoy our house in the off season.

Liz and Bruce Tuck purchased this house in 2005

Why Liz and Bruce Tuck chose Outer Banks

Proximity to the beach- 300 yards away at the most! Private street with a fully stocked home- one of the landmarks at Duck. 'Duck Soup' is so close to the quaint village of Duck (less than 8/10 of a mile) with lots of shopping, restaurants, jet skis, boating, fishing options. The best in the Outer Banks!

What makes this house unique

Our cottage is pet friendly so you can have your precious 4 legged friend with you while you relax. You can walk to the beach and to the shops of Duck or take our bikes on the bike path and take in the sights of the Outer Banks. The sound and the ocean are minutes away!

Super clean, great amenities, close to beach in terrific community!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay in a Home Away property, and I continue to be impressed. Duck Soup was even better than the photos suggested, and the property was very clean and well-appointed. The beds were comfortable, the rooms spacious, the amenities plentiful. I needed to contact the housekeeper and the gentleman responsible for maintaining the hot tub, and these individuals were SO friendly, helpful and kind. The distance to the beach was very manageable. Being pet-friendly was a huge plus for us, as our lab usually travels with us. Overall, we are very pleased, and would definitely recommend staying at the Duck Souo property.

We really enjoyed our time in Duck, the house had everything we needed and provided a great base camp for us as we relaxed. Nothing fancy, but had everything we needed.

Perfect for a couple or small family with a dog.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my husband and I and our 3 dogs. The small fenced yard was great for letting the dogs out quickly. The house is clean and cozy. It is a short walk to the beach and close to all of the OBX attractions. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a comfortable weekend place for spring break, and we were delighted with Duck Soup! It helped that the weather was terrific, so we could be on the beach, but the location allowed us to drive to Duck, Southern Shores, and Currituck with equal ease. The house is well and comfortably furnished, and having two outdoor decks was also a plus. As for amenities, we enjoyed the hot tub, used the bikes, and were delighted to have washer and dryer. Since we like cooking, we were glad to have many pots, pans, and utensils in the kitchen. The house is located on a corner of Rt. 12, but the street itself ends at the beach, so there was no through traffic, which made for nice walking back and forth. The details and communication with the owners was terrific; we had no problems while there, but if we had, we had numbers and names of people who were local to answer and address any issues. I am putting Duck Soup on my "Must Return" list. We had a wonderful experience!
