Enjoy the beautiful ocean views from “Carolina Blessing” in Duck! Located just one home off the ocean and steps from the beach access, this well-appointed home is situated on a cul-de-sac in the award-winning, gated, ocean-to-sound community of Four Seasons. This beach retreat provides guests access to a clubhouse with a heated indoor community pool, fitness center and game room, outdoor community pool, tennis courts, pickleball, basketball court, playground, and seasonal trolley. The walkable town of Duck has a six-mile multi-use pathway and an 11-acre park that hosts seasonal family-friendly events, live music, and exercise programs. A mile-long Soundside boardwalk connects the park to waterfront shops and dining.

This amazing, well-maintained home offers ten bedrooms and eleven bathrooms, giving your family and friends all the space they need. Eight of the ten bedrooms offer a private attached bathroom for the ultimate privacy and convenience.

"Carolina Blessing was amazing! Perfect for our ladies getaway. We had 11 of us and it was plenty of room to spread out. The place was exceptionally clean. The pool was wonderful and we were so happy we paid the fee to have it heated. It was perfect! This rental had everything we needed. All the essentials and plus some. We will be going back next year. Twiddy & co we’re quick to respond with any requests."

Lois   ·  Stayed April 2024

"Carolina Blessing is a stunningly beautiful 10 bedroom beach home. The salt water heated pool and hot tub make this home complete. The beds are very comfortable and the home is immaculate. The kitchen is very well equipped. The house has multiple decks where we enjoyed the sea breeze. It’s a very short walk to the beach. We loved our stay there!!"

Jill   ·  Stayed April 2024

"Carolina Blessing is perfectly named! My husband and I loved waking up to the sunrise and falling asleep to the sound of waves. Carolina Blessing is immaculately maintained and luxuriously appointed, it gave us so many options for comfort no matter the weather! We loved the hot tub under the stars and skee ball and pool in the game room made us feel like kids again! One chilly evening curled up by the fire place, hearing the wind and waves…knowing the wine frig was steps away was such a treat! I claimed the “look out” at the third floor landing as my “artist loft”! When we arrived we enjoyed the Four Seasons walking path! Box turtles, birds and geckos, oh my! Felt like a secret, just steps from the house to town and the beach! We look forward to sharing this Carolina Blessing with our family next year! Two outside showers, two spotless grills, and more kitchen and seating then I can describe! We love this Carolina Blessing!"
