"Location, bright decor, dog friendly."
"A pet friendly home, steps from the beach. Nothing else to say… oh yeah… clean, spacious, well maintained and equipped"
"Great location very quite area. Close to down town Duck. You have beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Love this home and will be back for a third year.🏖"
"The location was great for us. In walking distance to the town of Duck for shopping and eating. The house itself was awesome and pretty much had everything we needed. Next year will be our 3rd year renting.😁"
"Great location, steps away from the beach plus your own hot tub and pool!!! We had a great week and will come back to Life of Riley next year. You can enjoy the ocean right from your deck. It has everything you need and is dog friendly (our Corgi loved it too)."
"Location, location, location and dog friendly!"
"Location to beach and accommodating to dogs."
"Comfortable home with well equipped kitchen. Big enough for our needs without being a beach giant. The fenced in area for our dog was a real bonus!"
"Great location on a quiet cul-de-sac. Quick bike ride or walk up to Duck. Beautiful sunrise and sunset views. Fast stroll across the street to the beach."
"Had a great week. Looking forward to our return next year. The “pups” love it too. Lots of room and it has everything you need. The pool was great. We were close to town. The beach was a short walk. The view from the deck was amazing. Very relaxing, overall fabulous 😁"
"We really enjoyed our stay here, so much we booked already for next year. So convenient to the beach and if it's to windy or the flies are bad there, the pool worked out fabulously."
"This was just a PERFECT home. Pool got afternoon sun and the beach was just a short walk out the private access. Convenient to everything in Duck. Loved it - had an amazing vacation. (Left message with Twiddy - the Dishwasher needs to be replaced. It didn't work well at all.)"
"We love "The Life of "Riley!" This last summer was our second year at this spacious beach home and we Immediately booked it for the 2022 summer. There is lots of room for our extended family to spread out and yet the common areas were large and welcoming for grandparents, children, grandchildren and our beagles. Yea, yes, yes! We will be back to make more memories at "The Life of Riley" and at the OBX!"
"We love Life of Riley and so do our dogs! This was the 4th time we've rented this house (should've been 5th but COVID canceled 2020). The location is fantastic - it is on a cul de sac street in a quiet neighborhood, beach access is right across from the driveway and it's a 5 minute bike ride or 15 minute walk to downtown Duck. The deck gates and fenced yard allow our furry friends freedom to roam without getting loose. Being able to see and hear the ocean along with the décor create a true beach house atmosphere. We're already looking forward to our 2022 vacation here!"
"My husband and I, and our dogs, loved this home! We've been coming to the Outer Banks for the past ten years and this was one of our favorite homes we've stayed in. The fully fenced back yard would have been fantastic, but the burrs were so bad the dogs could not go out without getting several stuck in their paws. I'm not sure if it's just a bad year for them, but we've never had that problem before. Other than that, we loved it!"
"We love Life of Riley! We've stayed here twice now and can't wait to come again!! Our kiddos and dog love the home's proximity to the beach. We love the quiet cul de sac for our kids to ride bikes, and the bike ride up to Duck is only a few minutes away! Thank you for another pleasant stay!"
"This house has a great layout and location. You can see the water from the living/dining room and the decks are great. Having sitting areas on each level in addition to the bedrooms offers a lot of space. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation."
"We loved staying at the Life of Riley! From the set up of the house, pool, and hot tub to the proximity of the house to the beach access, it was perfect for our extended family and two beagles. Being close to Duck and having easy access to grocery stores made it even better. The ocean views from all porches and being able to hear the ocean made it even more relaxing. We loved it so much, we are hoping to stay there next year!"
"We had a wonderful time at Life of Riley. There were plenty of bedrooms for our family of six and lovely ocean breezes and partial views from the decks. The home was a good value for being very close to the beach and the beach itself, being private, was hardly crowded at all. The bathrooms and kitchen seem to be recently updated and there were plenty of storage areas available. I would note that the staircases are rather steep so I’m glad my elderly parents did not join us - this is something to note if you have mobility issues. We hope to return next year!"
