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.

Wonderful, memory filled beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was wonderful! Everything is true to the listing. Plenty of room and parking for multiple vehicles. The kitchen was adequately stocked with anything you would need to prep meals from pots and pans to strainers and blenders. The elevator accessibility and use of the pool were a big plus for us! Beautiful views and conveniently located for shopping and site seeing. The owner was very nice to work with and responded in a timely manner. Thank you for the use of your lovely home Sandy. Lots of memories for us to cherish. We would definitely rent here again!

Favorite Rental to Date!

  • 5 of 5

Our seventh visit to the OBX and this rental is our favorite! We love Duck - perfect location; nice to be able to walk to the Duck Cottage for a morning coffee. The house itself has a very efficient layout; the exterior decks/stairways so nicely designed - easy to get from one floor to another; to the pool; and best of all to the beach! The views are incredible; a true family vacation by the ocean! **We really enjoyed the raised chairs on the upper deck! Highly recommend and thanks for sharing your home!

My family had a wonderful time in the Outer Banks.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, glasses, dishes, and utensils. Loved the large dining table, my family always gets a local puzzle and has it set up during our vacation. The table was big enough to have the puzzle on one end and the 8 of us still had plenty of dining room at the table. Our only disappointment was that the pool was not open for us to use. We definitely recommend this house.

There was also an issue with getting into the house. We arrived at 1 pm, and the rental agency said that the house was still being cleaned and they needed to inspect it, but that it shouldn't be too long and that we should be in before 4. But at 4 we went to the house and found the house cleaners still there. I called and the realtor then said they had until 5:30 to let us in and that they had told us that when we picked-up the key. My family was with me when we picked up the key and agree that they said we would be in before the 4pm time.

Epic Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely beach home for Spring Break 2017. We are a family of 6, with kids ranging from 15 down to 6. This home is superb! If you're hesitating, don't. It met all our needs, with bedrooms for all the kids (and honestly, many more could've stayed), den or living room areas on every floor, a beautiful kitchen, and decks looking at the beautiful ocean on every floor. If you have accessibility needs, there is an elevator and several of the bathrooms have walk in showers. Even if you can handle steps the elevator is very handy when bringing in and out luggage and groceries. As far as location, it doesn't get better. This was our first trip to OBX so we just happened to get lucky...but I'm sure equipped with a knowledge of the area ammenities we would have chosen this location! It's centered between just about everything you will want to do. Most importantly, it's beachfront. The owners were so helpful and nice. We hope to return!

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.
