Why Susan chose Outer Banks

Duck, NC is a very quaint beach community surrounded by the sound on 1 side and the ocean on the other. Oodles of shops for meandering and shopping.

What makes this house unique

Sitting in your living room, dining room and kitchen and seeing nothing but the ocean water is just like being on a cruise ship. Elevator goes to ground floor with exterior access. No steps necessary. 1 king bedroom/bath features handicap accessible doors with roll up sink and walking shower. All beds have memory foam toppers for added comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As owners of this amazing house, we are pleased to share our beach home with you. After owning a 1960 beach house on this land for 8 years, we decided it was time to truly enjoy the property and views and decided to rebuild a home worthy of the location. The name stayed the same "The Sand Box" but everything else is gloriously new. We worked closely with the builder on every detail to ensure that the home is the best that it can be. Things like tiled bathrooms, hard wood floors, granite counters, insulated interior walls for maximum privacy, outdoor speakers, and the list goes on and on.

We feel strongly that your vacation in our home will exceed any expectations that you place on your holiday.

Duck - October 2016

  • 4 of 5

Even though Hurricane Matthew gave us bad weather, this home was a great place for our family reunion. Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and separate lounging places for the whole family. I would definitely recommend this place to any future renters. Very clean and Susan the owner was very accommodating.

Best week at OBX yet.

  • 5 of 5

The view was magnificent. I loved having 2 decks, one being shaded in the afternoon. The bedrooms, rec room and den were perfect for our family (2 tweens, 3 under 7, and 5 adults). We two 70 year olds, unaccustomed to stairs, appreciated the elevator as did the younger adults as they unpacked and packed the cars. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking meals 'at home'. We've already reserved our week for next year.

AWESOME !!!! House is designed for entertaining especially for a large Italian Family. Lots of cooking space in a well planned kitchen/dining area with ample utensils/dishes/bowls/cookware. Great family space, close to beach, private walkway to that great OBX sand and surf, decks with incredible ocean (sunrise) views, close to shopping and a minute to the sound (sunset). This rental made our family time even more enjoyable as the open space and privacy was incredible. Very clean and well maintained. I appreciated the owners quick replies on emails/calls. Did I say PERFECT-that it is.

HGTV Model Home with an Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to say how wonderful this house is because we want to keep it our own secret!! This home was like staying in an model home with cruise ship views. All that was missing was a cruise director with a clip board. Beautiful, relaxing, comfortable- we loved it and are already making plans to come back.

This met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We just concluded our week at this home and had a fantastic time. The location cannot be beat -- about 1/2 mile from the center of the Town of Duck and right on a great stretch of beach - but off the main road so as not to have to deal with the traffic or noise. The home is wonderfully outfitted with every imaginable amenity. Susan and Davis were very responsive throughout the booking and rental process and quick to respond if we couldn't figure something out. The views from the decks were spectacular. There were plenty of place-settings for eating in and all of the necessary gadgets for cooking. Everyone in our party said the beds were very comfortable and we never seemed to have a shortage of hot water despite lots of pre-dinner showers happening simultaneously.
