Our spacious one bedroom cottage is a perfect getaway for couples or families. We are located in the charming town of Duck and just a 5 minute walk to either the ocean or the sound. The house features a fully-equipped kitchen and has beach equipment for guest use.
Our cottage is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in Duck. The beach is a 5 minute walk, as is the sound where you can enjoy water sports during the day and stellar sunsets in the evening. The cottage features a living room with a Smart TV and plenty of seating, a dining area for four guests, a full kitchen, a large bedroom with a queen size bed, and a bathroom with a shower (no bathtub). A futon is also offered as a secondary sleeping option. Password-protected WiFi is provided. Please be aware that a very friendly Labrador retriever also lives on the premises and it may be impossible to avoid making a new friend while you are here. If you dislike dogs, this may not be the place for you, as ours has full access to outside areas.
There are beach chairs and an umbrella for guests to use. There are also many children's toys available, as well as some baby gear if needed (please ask during reservation). We also have an outdoor shower and a grill for guests to use. We can help arrange kayak, jet ski, and stand-up-paddle board rentals. Parasailing is also available. We are located along the 9 mile multi-use path that is very popular with joggers and bikers and runs straight though the village of Duck. Two adult bikes are available for guests to use. Bikes can also be rented in town if additional bikes are needed.
Neighborhood boat ramp access to Currituck Sound for boat/jet ski/kayak launch.
We live on premises and can be available for local recommendations and a bit of socializing. As long-time, year-round Duck residents, we are able to offer lots of information about the area. We have small children, so privacy is sometimes needed. You will likely see a lot of our dog, Merry, as she feels she is the neighborhood ambassador.
One-night stays may be restricted in the summer depending on surrounding reservations. One-night reservations on weekend nights in spring/fall may be restricted.

This is a family-friendly property.
Any questions, please ask!
Relax and have fun, but please be respectful of our home. Also, the patio is great for hanging out in the evening, but we do ask that outside noise is kept to a minimum at night.
Guests must be pre-approved. Any overnight guests will be subject to an additional guest fee.
Dog owners: you must be responsible for immediately picking up after your dog on the property, as well as throughout the neighborhood and on the beach. All dogs must be approved of in advance.
Wash off sand outside using hose or outdoor shower.
Guests are expected to clean behind themselves and leave the cottage ready for the next guests. Please wipe down surfaces in kitchen and bathroom (especially clean the shower of sand), SWEEP thoroughly as sand gets everywhere, and wash any dirty dishes. Remove sheets and leave in laundry basket. Please hang any wet towels.
I love to travel and experience new places! I became an Airbnb host in 2015 after deciding to be a stay-at-home mom to our two small children, and now am host to three properties in our neighborhood, so I am usually available to interact with our guests. I have always enjoyed working in hospitality, but really developed a love for hosting during my eight years spent traveling and working in lodges in Costa Rica and Panama. These lodges each offered something unique and personal to the guests' experience that I had never experienced before, and that I try to offer for our Airbnb guests.
