Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 16

“Memories of vacations at the beach stay with you for a lifetime”….that’s the motto of the Raspberry Duck and we’ve designed and furnished it to give you and your family the ultimate family vacation. The home is located in Duck’s premier Oceanside neighborhood, Duck Landing. The neighborhood boasts its own private community center, which is located right next to the beach entrance. The community center has an INDOOR (30x50) pool, baby pool, tennis courts, playground, workout room, indoor bathrooms and outside shower. The Raspberry Duck is a short walk to the beach (525 yards) and provides beach chairs, toys and a beach cart. A small private neighborhood with its own beach access assures you will always find plenty of room on the sand.

Relax and entertain inside and out at the Raspberry Duck. There are 2 decks on the front of the home, and 2 decks and a screened in porch on the rear of the home. The large 14x30 pool is surrounded by a tiki bar, poolside cabana with a table that seats 12, outdoor speakers, hot tub, volleyball court, and horseshoe pit. The pool deck is flanked by tall hedges on both sides and woods (not anther home) in the rear, assuring you privacy while using the pool. Grill out in the dedicated grilling area on the Weber gas grill or charcoal grill.

Inside you will find 5 master bedrooms and a 6th large bedroom on the lower level. All bedrooms have their own 32" flatscreen TV with built in DVD and DirecTV. The lower level is a child’s paradise: separate bedroom with a pyramid bunk bed and the adjoining rec room has foosball, refrigerator, microwave, and a 42" flatscreen TV with Wii and Xbox. The upstairs is designed for relaxing with a 46" flatscreen TV, vaulted ceilings and two separate seating areas. The kitchen can easily house several cooks at one time and is overstocked with everything you need: multiple small appliances, plenty of pots, pans, cookware, and every kitchen gadget you can think of. Our guests often mention how pleased they are to find such a well-stocked kitchen in a beach home. Off the kitchen is the dining room area, with a table large enough to seat 10 people. Bar stools at the kitchen bar and extra seating throughout will allow large groups to eat at once.

Don’t like to drive and hunt for a parking space every time you want to go somewhere? No problem! Our home is only a five minute walk from the quaint shops, restaurants, and the sound side boardwalk in Duck village. The boardwalk is over 2 miles long, spanning the entire length of Duck Village. If you haven’t been on the boardwalk yet, you need to check it out. There is nothing else like it at the Outer Banks. The boardwalk winds through the maritime forest, connecting all of the sound side shops and restaurants in Duck. There are multiple places to stop along the boardwalk to view the sunset, birds, and fish, and it’s complete with its own kayak launch and crabbing docks. Right of the boardwalk the Town of Duck now has its own amphitheater and town green where they host concerts, puppet shows, yoga/exercise classes, and other free events.

Many of the people that choose the Raspberry Duck for their vacation home come back year after year and treat it like their own…our guestbook is filled with comments like “we have been coming to the Outer Banks for years and this is the nicest, best equipped home that we have ever stayed in.” Other comments are more to the point: “we LOVE Duck and can’t wait to come back!”

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the pool. Worked great. Worked out everyday at fitness center. Walked the boardwalk and to stores 5 days. Brought a lot of stuff that was not needed as already there esp. baby items and pool items. It was not listed in amenities. Loved the porches and spent a lot of time on them. Porches were dirty and need to be painted. A TV needed to be replaced and service man pleasant and competent. Maintenance and furniture are two separated issues. Furniture was great, porches disgusting. Location was stellar.

Reviewer Comments:

A fun-filled week in this beautifully decorated & well-equipped beach home. So many amenities & things to do. Great location, close to town & not a far walk to beach. Awesome pool & sand volleyball area. So much to do whether you want to be active with others or relax off on your own. Very clean and loved all the beach decorations throughout the inside, as well as outside, of this home. Large coolers outside were a plus. Only complaint would be that main refrigerator not cold enough & small refrigerator downstairs did not work.

Very pleasant experience. We have stayed at the property before, but haven't been here in 7 years. The only complaint was the refrigerator didn't work properly, it froze some produce in the refrigerator section and the freezer didn't work at all.

What a fabulous week we had the home was more then enough for all our needs. The kitchen was well stocked. The only thing I would change would be the room with the bunk bed turn that into a queen size bedroom.. Hope to rent this house again

Raspberry duck is always a fun house to stay in. It's clean, good distance to both town and ocean and a nice block. If I had to criticize 1 thing, it would be the grill. It was so dirty with grease, when we turned it on, the house almost caught on fire. When I checked out, I told them how bad it was but this year, it was the same thing. Ultimately, a great house!!!!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a relaxing time. The pool and hot tub were well maintained. The house overall was well maintained. They need to update the WiFi as the router signal was weak through out parts of the house. There were quite a few lights not working on the outside of the home. Towels and sheets were included which was great. The house includes plenty of beach chairs,boogie boards. Etc.. The house is located on a quiet street. There is some parking up by the beach entrance. We did not use the club house but it was available to us. Definitely a nice house and Duck is a great place on OBX.
