House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
We live in Columbia, MD. My husband is a structural engineer and I am an anesthesiologist. We have two daughters, one lives in Vancouver and the other is a registered nurse in Baltimore, MD. We all love the beach and water sports.
Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Owner chose Duck
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 of the beautiful sunsets on the sound, and it is only a 10 minute walk to the beach. 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. Attached to the Sunset Grill Restaurant is a Jet Ski and Parasailing rental place.

It doesn’t get better than this - beauty and peace come with this home- did not want to leave
This property is magical. I spent the past 4 days
Mesmerized by the beauty outside that can be seen from almost every window. Last night sunset Went on for hours. We came from many parts of the country - Monterey, CA Philadelphia, Washington D.C, Virginia, Vermont . We came to honor my mom and sprinkle her ashes in her favorite spots. The Ocean, The pier at sunset, blue point grill, coffee bookstore, She and my stepdad owned a home at Ships Watch for 30 years and sold it 3 years ago when she became ill. The Croatoan home and wonderful owners Ella and Z opened their hearts and hone to families like ours where we could just be together. The home is even more wonderful than the photos. The Home has a feel of a well taken care of and loved home
I actually own a vacation rental company in Monterey Ca and was delighted when we cooked in the kitchen for an early Thanksgiving dinner and had so many beautiful serving plates, bowls platters and a large turkey roasting pan
The rooms are spacious and there was plenty of room for all of us. My favorite room was the little nook off the living room where I had my coffee every morning. The living room was very comfortable and there are at least 100 dvd of great movies. We all watched An officer abd a gentleman. It is an easy walk to town 5 minutes
And 10 minute walk to Ocean
There is large screen portch and the deck is amazing. You can walk to dinner at sunset grill in 5 minutes. I love this home and will return and become a regular. I am so grateful for the time we had - maybe just a glimpse of the sun but enough to warm our hearts
Another Great stay at Ships Watch. The house is absolutely amazing. It's like being at home. Very clean and it has everything you need right there. Great location for dining, walking and relaxing:) Ella made the check-in and reservation process super easy. A pleasure to deal with. Thank you again for sharing your home!
Great long weekend
Croatoan is a beautiful and comfortable home. It was perfect for our party of six for a long weekend. Nice community pool and lovely sound sunsets.
Great property, great communication. Would definitely stay again
Had a beautiful stay in Duck! Sitting on the deck with my family watching a blue heron stalk her dinner at sunset will be a memory I never forget. Kayaks were a lot of fun. The house was so comfortable.
