Joanne   ·  Stayed October 2023

"Beautiful home, loved the enclosed back room and loft. Beds were comfortable. Could use a few more pans as we eat in alot. But would definitely rent again"

Katherine   ·  Stayed May 2023

"Great space and storage in the bedrooms. Kitchen was good, especially the big fridge. Really nice location, walkable to the beach and Duck shops. Great views."

Shane   ·  Stayed October 2022

"We have rented Heart of Duck for the past 3 years and love the layout but won’t rent again. The home needs some basic upgrades such as new mattresses (especially in the master as it is awful). We actually brought our own mattress topper this year because of the bedding. Other guests have stated the same of other beds. It also needs new pans to cook on. We love the house and we love Twiddy otherwise. We will be back next year. Thank you so much for being awesome!"

William   ·  Stayed September 2022

Julianne   ·  Stayed July 2022

"Fabulous home for our OBX vacation! We loved everything about the house. Plenty of room for all of us. Pool and hot tub were great! We definitely would try to stay here again when we vacation at OBX."

Jennifer   ·  Stayed June 2022

"Great location - close to beach and town. The neighborhood has great amenities. The home was clean and had lots of space. Loved the hammock swing on the deck!"

Mark   ·  Stayed May 2022

"The pool and hot tub are favorites of ours, we spend a lot of time there. Our legacy in this house adds to our enjoyment, we've been renting this house for 30 years now. Kids were toddlers when we started, they both still come every year even tho they are in mid 30's now. Owner has taken care of the home over the years, and we'll continue to come down for 2 weeks in future years."
