The beach is at the end of our street with no roads to cross. Our street association has it’s own private beach access with parking at the end of the street. It makes it easy to take the coolers, surf & boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. that we provide to the beach with you.

The incredible Saltaire home sits on a beautifully landscaped large corner property in the heart of the quaint Duck Village. The most coveted prime real estate in the entire Outer Banks. The fantastic new boardwalk across the street, but hidden from view, runs the whole length of the town over the sound. You can go to restaurants, shops and truly enjoy the incredible scenery Nature is providing. Sunset views from the Cabana across from us while enjoying a cocktail or snack are mesmerizing.

Amenities include: Heated Saltwater pool with built in Jacuzzi, Separate Hot Tub in Gazebo, Huge Playground set in spacious yard, Manly Men’s Bar, Bigger game room then other rentals, kayak, surf & boogie boards, beach chairs & umbrellas, gourmet kitchen with commercial stove, 3 bar areas, Steam room & large Jacuzzi, Fantastic living room with grand piano and wrap around decks on porch, & 2 seasonal fireplaces. Our street has it’s own private beach access with the very best beach & fantastic Ocean Sunrise views. Across the street the boardwalk runs the entire length of town with a wonderful Catena Bar and seating to enjoy Sound Sunset views in the evening before dinner, with over a dozen restaurants to stroll to, plus so much more.

The rate you see is the full total that you pay. We do not add on another 20% of taxes and service fees like other companies.

Best of all we do a Friday to Friday week in order to save you wasted hours in the weekend traffic. The entire island (400,000+) turns over on Sat & Sun and is funneled into 2 roads. You'll coast in on Friday, do your shopping and be hanging around the pool while the other 400,000 are stuck in traffic for an extra 5 hours.

If we are already booked for the dates you need please consider our other 6 bedroom home in Corolla. Sunnybank is located Oceanfront, 2 miles into the 4 wheel drive area.

W h y T h e S a l t a i r e ?

Our property is located in the heart of downtown Duck, within convenient walking distance to world class dining, golfing and water sports, as well as coffee shops, the ABC store, specialty shops and galleries. Being able to walk to almost any destination is what makes the Town of Duck unique among those on the Outer Banks, as most require significant driving to attractions and stores.

Duck also features a boardwalk with shops on the water and a path for runners and bikers. While you will have to walk 4/10 of a mile to get to the ocean, you will not have to cross Duck Road. The house sits on a corner lot of Marlin Drive, so private beach access is a short walk to the end of this road.

Duck is a great location for those who intend to see the northern beaches of Corolla and Corova, and is also conveniently located close to Kitty Hawk, with grocery shopping, pharmacies and major stores only 5 miles away. The drive to Hatteras is about an hour and forty-five minutes with light traffic and the drive to Corolla is twenty minutes.

Our website lists just a few of the many things to do in the quaint village of Duck.

http://thesaltaire.com

Determining the origin of many Outer Banks town names is a study of history and sometimes even pirate lore (see Kill Devil Hills). As for Duck’s namesake, it’s exactly what you might expect. Hunters and gatherers have been flocking to the area since the 1800’s for its abundant waterfowl. Thus, Duck.

This resort town has an impressive reputation for great beaches, water sports and outdoor adventures, first-class events including a nationally-known Jazz Festival, fine dining, and eclectic shopping. Bounded by the Currituck Sound to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, visitors delight in great kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, and much more. The beaches, many named among the top in the nation, are private and afford great shell collecting opportunities, especially in the offseason when the pickings are flush. Some local restaurants offer open air dining and most of the Town’s shops and restaurants are connected by the Duck Trail that runs the entire length of the town parallel to Highway 12 or by the sound side boardwalk which offers premium views of the Currituck Sound.

A beautiful, classic home

  • 5 of 5

The Saltaire is a beautiful home with all the amenities you could ask for. The property is gorgeous, spacious, and very comfortable The owners were very responsive to any inquiries I had and were very accommodating to us during our stay. I would absolutely recommend this property for a relaxing weekend in Duck. It is in walking distance of restaurants and shops, so you do not ever need to get in the car once you arrive. We enjoyed going to the Duck Deli for breakfast (located right next door.) All in all, the weekend was a pleasure and certainly will be one to remember fondly.

The perfect place to relax and enjoy your life.

  • 5 of 5

That house feels alive and makes you feel you belong there. It has everything for your comfort and enjoyment. The property is well maintained and clean. It was like a dream to stay at such a beautiful home. The pool and hot tub were perfect, but I think what we all enjoyed the most was having our meals together in that wonderful dinning room. Each day felt like a special holiday. Yes, I would recommend this property to everyone. I loved the ocean, the wonderful shops and great food. It was the first time we ever took our Yorkie on vacation and she loved it. It's a very special house in a very special place. Thank you for a great vacation.

Simply Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Saltaire was absolutely wonderful. The entire place offered everything we could ask for in a getaway resort, and then some. The old world charm and architecture of the building nicely complemented the vast array of amenities providing us with the best of “all” worlds. In a day and age when vacations and resort destinations can be as tiring as everyday life, our stay at Saltaire was a welcome dose of privacy and personal luxury. We can’t recommend this place enough!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 wks and just loved the house and its location was so great too. You can walk to restaurants and shops and the boardwalk which runs along the sound. Duck is an adorable village, we totally fell in love with it. The owners were wonderful to deal with from start to finish and so helpful in places to try. The house looks just like the pictures and everything was well taken care of. The beach is right down the street and the pool and jacuzzi at the house were great. We cooked in and went out to eat about 50/50, everything you could ever need is in the kitchen. Loved the elevator when moving in and out. This was definitely one of our favorite vacations, it truly exceeded our expectations (which almost never happens).

Astonishing rental property

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many properties in last few years to enjoy the long weekends. This one was the finest property, we have ever rented. An astonishing rental property conveniently located in the center of Duck and also situated to provide privacy. A short, easy walk takes you to the beach, dinner or shops. Kitchen has every utensil, one will need to use and big fridges make life easier. Kids loved the big TV in entertainment room and adults loved the pool and poker tables. Our group enjoyed the heated pool, hot tub, in-built Jacuzzi with heated pool and another Jacuzzi in bank bed room. Every room of house has its own different pleasant decoration, makes stay peacemaker. A little unease was that somehow dishwasher did not work during our stay but we did not mind it because we carried disposables. All to gather a Stunning property and we will be renting it again

A nice boardwalk just starts few steps far the house over the ocean at bay side. A Jet Ski rental is located only few of miles from house and famous duck donuts shop is on an easy walking distance. At last Thanks to owner Karen, She was very responsive and helpful whenever was needed.

Impressive, beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in your beautiful house. There was plenty of room for us and four children and spouses and one grandchild, to find a place to have some quiet time if desired. Our bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed all the space. It was nice having HOT water at will. We spent a lot of time in the great kitchen and lingered in the dining room. We used most of the three fridges. Can't imagine having only one! Those bottles of wine and turkey take up a lot of room!

The dogs loved running in the yard. The girls and I had fun shopping Friday and Saturday in the cute shops. And the huge TV was great for football watching. And thank you most for the elevator! It saved my legs.

It was definitely a very special holiday for us. We are so spread out that we seem to only get all together at weddings and funerals. We will have lovely memories of Duck and the gorgeous sunset our last night there.
