"Its location, its spaciousness, the immediacy of the ocean--not to mention the elevator!"
"The location and views were amazing! The layout of the home was perfect so that everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. We are looking forward to our vacation in 2023!"
"The location on the beach was awesome. The pool was very nice just cold."
"Very comfortable home, pool was large with wide steps to relax on. Oceanfront view beautiful, decking could use updating but usable. Rooms with private baths plenty of space. Wonderful vacation home, had a super time."
"It's site, location, spaciousness"
"Location and view. Comfortable."
"This home is in a great location and the space is adequate for our group. But it needs some TLC."
"This has been "our" vacation home for 9 years. Although the deck could use an upgrade, everything is perfect for our use. We are 10 senior ladies & really appreciate the elevator. The furniture & carpets have been upgraded over the years and that is a plus."
"Beautiful views, plenty of space, in the heart of duck."
"We love this house and have been staying here for several years, but it's starting to show some wear and tear. To name a few, the kitchen tiles are starting to break, especially the ones behind the sink, the screens doors are coming off of the track and the main stairwell needs painted. The outside furniture, which used to be gorgeous, has been replaced with cheap plastic chairs. Also, there are no chairs on the second level to enjoy the ocean waves. We will continue to come here, but hope these fixes are taken care of in the future. #obx2022"
"This home provided us the perfect place for a relaxing week. We chose to get the pool heated ($450) it was a must for us with 3 little kids. The house was a bit dated but was VERY CLEAN and COMFORTABLE. The views were so beautiful! The home owners are very lucky to own a piece of heaven & we are thankful for letting us rent their home. One thing I would mention is the path (not boardwalk the actual sand) from beach to home is a hill. My mother traveled with us, she is 65 & has had surgery on both her ankles. The hill did prove to be an issue for us but since the house is located next to the public beach access we used that and it worked fine - still a hill but much less of an incline. I would worry that elderly guests by have trouble using the private entrance from beach. We like it so good we have plans to return next year!"
"We usually stay in Corolla or Pine Island. The homes there are newer and therefore it may not be fair for us to rate this house comparatively. On the good side this house had a nice layout and the rooms were large. The elevator worked well and was a plus. The beds were comfortable. The pool was a nice large size and the ledges in it were perfect for sitting in the water. The welcome package and beach cabana plus were great extras and were really appreciated! On the downside the decks and furnishings were starting to show wear and tear. The lock was completely missing on the living room door to the deck and a couple of the second floor bedroom deck doors had locks that were frozen in the open position and could not be locked. We had trouble with the smoke alarms and with algae in the pool. This house is also directly next to the public beach access so it was more crowded on the beach in the area right by us. The beach is wider and the sand softer in Corolla than here in Duck too. We will probably go back to staying in Corolla despite the slightly longer drive to get there."
"This vacation home has become our “go to” place for wonderful memories! The home is beautifully decorated and has everything for a wonderful vacation! The pool is huge! The views from the decks are incredible! I am 55 and all of a sudden dealing with lower back issues. The mattresses in the home are high quality and I was able to get a good nights sleep every night! This is not always easy to accomplish in a vacation home! I love the quiet neighborhood as well. This vacation we celebrated my daughters wedding at the Kitty Hawk Pier! We were blessed with 7 beautiful days in Morning Star 1 to reflect on the occasion."
