About The Owner

We live in Columbia,MD.My husband is a structural engineer and I am an anesthesiologist.We have two daughters in college.We all love the beach and the water sports.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Outer Banks

We discovered Duck over 20 years ago and

kept coming back every chance we got.

We always rented a house on the sound side,because we love to windsurf and it was

easy to access the water.We love our location in Duck,because it is on the sound,

but the beach is only 10 minutes walk.

Ships Watch community has great amenities

including a great pool and tennis courts.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the sound side location of our house.The sunsets you can watch from the deck are incredible!

The Sunset Grill Restaurant is a close walk

from our house and Tommie's Market is very convenient for shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed every single second of our vacation. Kayaking, surfing, swimming, eating, drinking, kite flying, fishing, etc... the list goes on. The home was perfectly appointed with absolutely everything we needed!

From the moment we arrived we felt at 'home.' The house is very clean and very well maintained. Owner provides so many extra touches from dishes, to bedding, to furniture and decor, outside extra's, etc(too many to mention) that make this rental very comfortable to relax in -the way a vacation should be! The location is fantastic.Back yard access to fishing dock and kayaking in the Sound. Easy walking access to beach and Duck. The beautiful peaceful view of the Sound from inside the house(endless window views) and the deck make the rental a piece of heaven! We loved this rental so much we didn't want to give it a review because we want to keep it a secret! However, the owners definitely deserves the review!!! My husband's only request...more fish in the sound!!!(owner figures that one out we will give it a 20 star!)

Absoultely WONDERFUL Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this beautiful home and once again, it did not disappoint. The house is furnished comfortably and very clean. This summer was a bad year for spiders outside, but it was nothing a little sweeping couldn't take care of quickly.

The layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms make this home perfect for families to share. We were 2 families (4 adults, 4 children). Since we were travelling with an almost walking baby, it was much appreciated to have the pack n play and highchair waiting there for us. The home was also easy to baby proof (no need to worry about steps, etc). The older children LOVED riding their bikes (which we brought; adult bikes were already there available for our use) on the large, flat and private driveway. And we all enjoyed use of the kayaks and backyard hammock! Of course, use of the beach umbrellas and chairs were very helpful. As a runner, I greatly appreciated the running/bike path that runs through Duck. Being able to walk into town safely for a delicious dinner & drinks, or even some shopping, is icing on the cake.

But you just can't beat stepping on the large deck to watch amazing sunsets over the sound every night. And at night, the star gazing is beautiful (we were lucky enough to even catch a meteor shower). Most of the time, we forgot there were other homes nearby as this location is very private.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here in Duck. This was our first time to stay in Duck and we loved it. What a wonderful time we had. We kayaked, fished, spent days at the beach and hung out at the pool. We walked the board walk and visited the lovely shops and restaurants in Duck and even bicycled for a few last minute groceries. We took the car to the beach only because of the chairs and boards but enjoyed a walk and run to the beach too. The house had everything a family of 7 could need. We BBQ'd on the grill and the kitchen was perfect for dinners in. The home was clean and comfortable. We loved the layout which accommodated three adults and 4 teens. It was even easy for my 94 year old mom to navigate. The sunsets were fabulous and the weather was perfect. We made some great memories on this vacation. Thanks for making our stay one we won't forget.

Everything we hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Our week in this beautiful home was wonderful for all of seven of us, from infant to senior. The house is spacious and well equipped, with a high chair and pak n play. And there was lots of room for all of us. Everything was sparkling clean. The kitchen had everything you needed and it was in great condition. We enjoyed dinner in the large dining room and the screened in porch. We loved being on the sound, watching the sunsets at night and heading out in the kayaks during the day. This home is in a great location, close to everything we wanted, but away from the noise and traffic. We went to the beach for part of every day and had no trouble parking with the Ships Watch parking pass. We loved being able to walk to shops and restaurants. As soon as we know our vacation dates for 2016, we will sign up for another week.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house; spacious and well appointed, and just perfect for entertaining.

We met family on the Outer Banks from other parts of the country. We bought seafood and cooked at home on one very enjoyable evening. The house is located perfectly for sightseeing and is near many good restaurants. We would love to visit again next year.
