We had a fabulous vacation at "Ducking Responsibilities". We vacationed with another family who also had two little boys. The layout worked perfect for our families and we all especially enjoyed the outdoor areas underneath the house... what a fun and unique use of the space!
Ducking Responsibility is a great place to stay for our family. We prefer the location being closer to town and the privacy of the property. The home is perfect for our family and we have already pre-reserved for next year. We actually stayed at this same home in 1989, 90, and 91 with our parents when the home was called "The Flying Jib" The new owners have made some great additions since that time such as the pool and kids area under the house.
The house was exactly what we needed and wanted for our week vacation. Our favorite part of the property was a wonderful patio and play area under the house that is ideal for kids, adults, and entertaining that over looks the pool area. The house is in a great location, community, and very close to shopping and fantastic restaurants! We will return with out a doubt.
