Carol   ·  Stayed September 2022

"The home was beautifully furnished, clean, well stocked and the view of the ocean exquisite! The location is our our preference, within waking distance to town."

Sandra   ·  Stayed September 2022

"Doctor's Orders was perfect for our family. Great equipped kitchen, nice pool, wonderful views and location. Easy renting with Twiddy. Only negative was cleanliness of dining area floor and outdoor furniture."

U.   ·  Stayed August 2022


Meaghan   ·  Stayed July 2022

"Location, stocked kitchen, large dining and sitting area. Great outdoor area and beach accessories."

Donna   ·  Stayed July 2022

"I've been vacationing at the OBX for 10+ years and this house had the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. It was perfect for our family."

Rebecca   ·  Stayed July 2022

"The views are incredible. All the furniture is new, beautiful, and most importantly, comfortable. The kitchen is the best equipped we've ever had - high quality, lots of dishes, and they thought of everything. The new pool is amazing. The outdoor furniture/cushions are great, plenty of comfortable seating - also the best we've ever had in a beach house."

Bernard   ·  Stayed June 2022

"We loved the view from the deck. We enjoyed the new pool."

Barb   ·  Stayed June 2022

"The view was amazing! Sitting on the upper deck, we could watch the grandkids play in the surf, collect shells, catch a few waves and enjoy our morning coffee or a nightcap. The pool was very nice! We made many wonderful memories."

Margaret   ·  Stayed May 2022

"Location is great! New pool is lovely!!"

Charlene   ·  Stayed May 2022

"Fantastic location and plenty of room. Quick access to the beach and an easy stroll to the shops and restaurants in town. Everything we needed was already in the home, which made our stay perfectly relaxing!"

George   ·  Stayed October 2021

"Great place. Great ocean view. Uses the community walkway to the beach, so lots of noise close by. Well furnished - we would vote for a toaster oven rather than two toasters - but there were only two of us in the home. Lots of games and toys - which we didn't use."

Pat   ·  Stayed September 2021

"The home is great! However, a few areas need some attention. First and foremost, there is no American flag to fly on the flagpole! The cover on the hot tub needs replaced. Too many table games on ground level now, making it very cluttered. The arcade games inside don't work. The new flooring is nice, but the rug on the stairs should be replaced. We had a great time at the beach and Doctor's Orders is a great place to be when vacationing in Duck."

Natalie   ·  Stayed August 2021

"We had the best time, three generations vacationing together, great house and great beach right outside the backdoor! It was wonderful! We hope to vacation again at this home. Vacationing is easy when Twiddy is the managing company!"

Mary   ·  Stayed August 2021

"House was perfect for us. Location was beautiful and the decor was lovely. Lots of kitchen and beach equipment."

Pamela   ·  Stayed July 2021

"The big plus for this rental home is its proximity to the beach and amazing ocean views. It really worked well for our family of 12 (including four little ones five years and younger). The kitchen is stocked well minimizing the need to bring tool/equipment from home, and there is even a second refrigerator/freezer on the ground floor. Grilling out was so easy with a direct gas line to the grill. The beach chairs, umbrellas, and the boogie boards were appreciated. We loved the keyless entry (and checkout) as well as the opportunity to obtain an early check-in for an additional fee. We had one plumbing issue, but Twiddy responded within hours, and it was resolved. Definitely recommend Doctors Orders!"

Rose   ·  Stayed July 2021

"Doctor's Orders provided a wonderful house for my family to enjoy the beach the outer banks area and each other. The house is roomy, well appointed, full of amenities and conveniently located with easy access to the beach and a short walk to the town of Duck. Our party consisted of family members ranging in age from 5 to 65. We all greatly enjoyed the many amenities and appreciated the fully equipped kitchen."

Stephen   ·  Stayed July 2020

"This is a solid 4 of 5 stars... The place is a bit older, but they had everything we needed including beach stuff, good activities, great location, etc. The only reason it's not a 5 is because some things were broken (deck chairs, fishing poles, the AC had a leak, no sharp knives, ice machine in the kitchen fridge didn't work, old washer/dryer, etc). Nit picky I know, but 5 stars does mean perfect. : )"

Christy   ·  Stayed June 2020

"Enjoyed the home very much! Twiddy is always great😃"

Jean   ·  Stayed May 2020

"What an awesome view! Great location, walking distance to most of Duck. Highly recommend this house....was just what the "Doctor ordered!""
