Just Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home to rent in Duck, NC that would allow our 2 Airedales and we found SaltAire Mansion. This home is fabulous. It has a gourmet kitchen with 3 refrigerators, a game room/theater room that would be the envy of any man and the home is clean and welcoming. If you are looking for a quiet get away, this is it. The pool and hot tub were great for relaxing and the beach is just a short walk away. The owner Karen was wonderful to work with and made us feel at ease when booking our vacation. This home is a must!

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).
