About Demetra Heckman

The house was built by my parents in the early 80's. We did a lot of work ourselves. To give you an idea of my Dad's personality, the underside of the house is braced above code to withstand the winds of Hurricanes. I never fear that our house will blow away!

My parents have both passed away and my sister and I manage the property. We have made several improvements including replacing shag carpet with laminate, wood paneling with dry wall and a more functional kitchen. We have tried to create a family friendly place, but remain true to our parents vision of a beach house.

It is also important to note that I do not live at the beach and I am not able to check things every day. We appreciate renters who notify us when things are not working correctly. We do have a cleaning lady and maintenance man on call, but it still can take 24 hours for them to respond.

The house is a special place for us and our families full of memories.

Demetra Heckman purchased this house in 1980

What really made our stay special was the incredible thoughtfulness of the owners to be sure we had everything we needed to make our Duck visit a real vacation.

Family get together in OBX

  • 5 of 5

Great house, large open living room and kitchen that was perfect for letting our 9 month old granddaughter crawl around in. Close to everything in Duck. Shops close up early though, but that may be because of the time of year we were there.

Would not recommend for older persons as the tub/shower combo was slippery and nothing to hold on to, and the shower in the master bath was small and also the floor was slippery. When turning on the shower in the master bath, loosen the wing nut and turn the shower head toward the floor or you are going to get drenched trying to adjust the temperature.

Overall a great house and we will be coming back again.

Good location with basics

  • 4 of 5

Owner was extremely responsive and accommodating. We were here to attend a wedding. Location was good, with short walk to beach. The beach was being redone, so that was somewhat difficult to work with, but we made it work. Pretty much everything you would need was there and the view was amazing. Good value. The only reason I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating was for cleanliness. There was food, etc under the couches and beds, and bathroom drain would not drain.

Perfect location to work and dream from!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a co-worker used Ariande as our work station. So much nicer than working out of a hotel room! The drive from Norfolk airport is absolutely worth the sheer postcard perfect beauty of Duck, NC in the breathtaking Outer Banks. Highly recommend this affordable, clean, visitor-friendly house rental.
