“Life is Good” is your home away from home! Within walking distance to Duck shops and restaurants, this vacation home has ocean views and a private optionally heated pool. The beach is a short stroll away, so whether you’re up early for the sunrise, or setting up for a day of sand and sun, you can be back at the house in a few minutes for anything you may need.

Get comfortable in the great room on level three that boasts stunning views of the Atlantic. The open floor plan moves you along to the sitting area, dining area, and into the well-equipped kitchen. Whip up a snack and a cocktail and step out onto one of the spacious decks to take in the sea air. One master bedroom resides on this floor as well.

The majority of the sleeping quarters are found on level two, in addition to the den which provides a quiet place to relax and unwind. The remaining two bedrooms are located on the ground floor. Additionally, you’ll find the rec room with a pool table, and another spot to hang out and watch tv! Out back, the spacious pool area awaits for fun in the sun. Vacationing at this Outer Banks gem will have you saying “Life is Good!”

Jennifer   ·  Stayed July 2023

"Great location in Duck. Very close to the beach . Beautiful pool."

Maria   ·  Stayed May 2023

"We love the proximity and ocean views but mostly find that the top floor really works for us. We love the round dining table. And the conversation section next to the sofAs are a favorite of everyone. It lets us have several conversational areas but still all be together. Oh, and a puzzle table is a must for us too. Bedrooms are comfortable (except too form of mattresses in twin room). Suggest a dog/kid gate on the upper deck with stairs."

Thank you for the review and so happy you had a nice stay. We will definitely add a doggy gate on the top floor!

"Great location to beach, pool table and volleyball, tv was not on once in the time we were there."

Yay for using all the fun activities the house has to offer! In the off season we will replace the dishwasher and some chairs.

"What’s not to like"

Maria   ·  Stayed May 2022

"Our blended family has been renting for over 20 years. We come back to Life is Good because it works well for us. We especially love the top floor where there is lots of room for us to be together but spread out in different zones. Our all together time is at dinner and the round table facilitates us all being engaged and lively conversation. (Ideally the island would be a foot farther out) Bedrooms are spacious and the Rec room very enjoyable. We were able to play pool while the baby slept above. Oh, and the house is sturdy! Gail winds up to 50 mph and there was no sway. We are booked to return next year."

So thrilled you had a great visit again! Thanks for your input on the house.

"Life is Good was really good!! We could not have been more happy about the location. The view of the ocean from multiple decks was beautiful and we had toes in the sand in two minutes. The ability to walk to all the stores in Duck was fantastic and having a restaurant at the end of the street was perfect. The house had everything we needed to be comfortable for the week and Twiddy was very quick to respond to the one request we had. The new owners have a gem on their hands and I hope they keep the house in it's fabulous condition. We'll be back!"

Thanks so much for selecting our home❤️ Thank you for the feedback and as new owners we take them to heart. In the off season we will paint the exterior and continue to personalize Life is Good. Hope you all come back to check out the updates as they happen☀️
Joy   ·  Stayed March 2021

"Can’t say enough good things about this home! Perfect location for enjoying the beach and walking to town. We are a family who loves to cook and the kitchen was well stocked. Fantastic ocean views!"

Awwww! Thank you! As new owners we’ll keep striving to improve Life is Good! We hope you come back and enjoy a relaxing time in Duck☀️

"I thought it was a lovely home. the kitchen could use a better variety of pots & pans..otherwise , well stocked. The bed pillows were not comfortable, but i do realize thats a matter if preference... But absolutely Loved the house!!!"

Megan   ·  Stayed August 2020

"Great house! Very well kept- kitchen was extremely well-stocked- and the house was homey/comfortable! The walk to the beach was easy! The only drawback was the location in terms of being in between hotel/condo complexes- I think this caused the beach to be more crowded and we missed out on the total 'darkness' at night to stargaze! Other than that- the house was perfect for our group and 4-legged friends too!"

Thomas   ·  Stayed June 2020

"This house really grows on you!"

Beth   ·  Stayed June 2020

"This house was amazing! The views of both sunrise and sunset were breathtaking. The layout and amenities were perfection. Thank you so much : )"

Kelly   ·  Stayed May 2020

"Lots of space and sitting areas for a large family to spread-out. Family room couches VERY comfortable and loved that there were multiple decks to sit outside. A couple decks are covered, which was nice because we had a lot of rain during our stay. Paved path to beach is nice, but, just know that it’s a NARROW beach. Probably gets pretty crowded when season is in full swing. Really liked that each bedroom had its own bathroom. Only complaint from our 10 year old was that the bunk bed mattress (especially the top one) was extremely uncomfortable. He ended up sleeping on the couch in the den."
