Recent updates include a fenced-in backyard, and a granite walkway from the front yard to the private pool!

Gather your friends and family for a memorable stay in this stylish, contemporary vacation home! "Tern Back Time" combines modern amenities with trendy furniture and decor reminiscent of yesteryear. Beautiful landscaping, comfortable furniture, custom tile, bamboo flooring and a considerate floor plan all contribute to the home’s modern appeal. Semi-oceanfront location allows guests to enjoy breathtaking ocean views, salty breezes, and a short walk to the beach. Soak up the sunshine while relaxing on the top level wrap-around deck or while splashing in the refreshing private pool. After the sun sets, gaze up at the stars in the dark night sky while soaking in the hot tub.

The bright and cheerful great room boasts cathedral ceilings, clean lines and a fun retro vibe. Stainless steel appliances and polished granite countertops in the kitchen add chic elements to the contemporary design. Cooks will love the gourmet kitchen with gas range, two ovens, oversized refrigerator/freezer, two dishwashers, custom cabinets, and walk-in pantry. The retro vibe continues with the decor of the six bedrooms, five of them masters. A sitting nook on the middle level provides a quiet place to sneak away and get lost in a good book. The lower level was designed with fun in mind, including a pool table, comfortable lounge seating and direct access to the covered patio. A new picket fence on the back side yard makes a great play area for kids!

"We’ve been coming to OBX for 25 years, usually staying oceanfront in Pine Island. Because we decided to go on this trip at the last minute, we booked semi-oceanfront in Duck, at Tern Back Time. The house was WONDERFUL! The walkway to the ocean was very close. The pool and hot tub were private and enjoyable. The great room allowed multiple views of the ocean. The beds were comfortable. Having an elevator always helps. Being close to Duck was an added bonus. Only suggestion is more wine glasses are need (there was one), and a Teflon frying pan would be nice. I will definitely try to come back to this house! Amy Z"

"This is a great house! We have been renting at Duck - various homes for 25+ years- and this is the best. All the features we wanted. Nice open contemporary design. Separate table for puzzles and a large griddle for those big family meals. Nice little pool and convenient to the beach. We are coming back next year!"

"well equipment with anything you need and the walk to the beach is so short. This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this house and loved it both times."

Walter   ·  Stayed June 2022

"Very good experience, exactly as advertised."

Carol   ·  Stayed May 2022

"We loved everything about this house!! From the location to the beach! The house and pool, were very nice. The pool wasn’t heated and the temp was refreshing and perfect! We have stayed in pine Island before (twice) and this year decided to stay in Duck! Totally perfect decision. We were about a mile and half to town! If anyone is thinking of this house, you won’t be sorry!!"
