Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our second time staying at Seaclusion and we intend to come back again and again! The owner is fantastic. She is easy to work with and a delight. The house is a perfect fit for us. It is well equipped with everything you need. The owner really took the time to provide what you need for a comfortable stay. The location is great and easy walk to the beach, and a quick walk into town for shopping. There is a dump cart to take your beach chairs and other large items in, and a wagon to bring the little ones along to the beach. It really made things easier and just one less thing to have to rent. Last but not least, Seaclusion is impeccably clean. This is so important to us and our comfort. You will not find a speck of dust or lint in this place! It is clear the owner found the right people to keep the house in tip top shape to add to your comfortable stay. We plan on coming back and can not give a higher recommendation! Great place, great owner, great location! Need I say more?

Great space. Good location

  • 4 of 5

House is very clean and well maintained. Backyard is kind of weird. Very sparse and not very attractive. Only wanted to be back there when we were in the fabulous hot tub or very small pool.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from yet another great getaway vacation in the OBX, and this house was just perfect for us! Plenty of space for the teenagers to have adequate privacy, great living room and outdoor space that we could also spend great family time together. The beach was so close, and how relaxing to be able to come home to the pool and hot tub as well. Very clean and well maintained property, and the owner was a gracious host who was responsive and eager to ensure that we had all that we needed for a great family vacation!

Much wildlife to see as well - dolphins swimming close by at the beach, turtles in the yard and a neighborhood deer that we saw on a few early mornings walking back from watching sunrise at the beach!

We would highly recommend this property!

Perfect house for a family with young kids!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Seaclusion. We have two toddlers 3 and under and the house couldn't have been more perfect for us. The owner is kind enough to supply a crib, booster seat, high chair, baby gate, beach cart and a kids' wagon. The deck had gates on either end which helped keep in the kids. The location is an easy walk to the beach. It is located in a great community with a nice entrance to the beach. It is a short walk into downtown Duck, about .8 mile. The pool and hot tub were terrific. We really enjoyed our time at the beach, but we were always happy to come home to swim in the pool and relax in the hot tub. The house was roomy, well equipped with everything you need (even a nice crock pot). The house was really clean too! Last, but not least, the owner was easy to work with, friendly, responsive and nice. We would definitely rent this house again and highly recommend!

Outstanding home, gracious and responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent a week in the Seaclusion and we were very happy with everything we encountered. There were 11 of us in the home including my three grandchildren and there was plenty of room. Karen was very responsive to our needs while we were there, as well as during the reservation process and weeks leading up to our stay. The home was very well appointed, clean and in a perfect location for easy access to the beach. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone considering spending time in the Outer Banks.

A Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been traveling to the Outer Banks for three years, and “Seaclusion” is the only place we will stay! The amenities this home offers allow you great flexibility. There are wonderful sleep spaces for children and adults, and the great room upstairs offers tremendous views and a warm welcoming space to share time and memories. A fully stocked kitchen and Weber grill out back offer versatility in dining options. There are also many interesting activities to do that are a stone-throw away! From paved bike trail rides into quaint Duck Village and short walks to the private beach, to local attractions that the whole family can enjoy, “Seaclusion” truly has something for everyone—not to mention the pool and hot tub in the back yard, where you can relax and unwind. It is no wonder that our family has been coming here for three summers in a row, and everyone looks forward to the family photo in front of “Captain Seaclusion”! We are already thinking about next summer’s trip!

All We Had Hoped.... and More!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me begin by THANKING Karen, the home owner. Karen was quick to answer any question I had prior to our departure. Once we arrived to the OBX, the home and surrounding area was all she had described. We felt extremely comfortable, safe and at ease in this wonderful beach house, SeaClusion! Not only was our walk to the beach just 3 minutes away, but the beach, itself, was clean, family friendly...and simply, beautiful! Our clean and well maintained home was perfect; well equipped kitchen, kid friendly and spacious! We enjoyed a wide range of activities while in Duck: the backyard pool, para-sailing, a wonderful seafood dinner at the Sunset Grill, hang-gliding (my grandson...not me! :-) , bike rides to town (really, only about a 15 min. walk if you don't have bikes), walking the boardwalk, shopping, jeep ride to see the wild horses in Corolla and of course, the beach! We will cherish our time at SeaClusion and the OBX for a long time to come!!!

Car: not necessary

Located close on the Ocean Side of Duck. A short walk to the beach. Our private beach is beautiful and rarely crowded. The surf fishing is perfect at any time. Side walk and Bike path will lead you right into the town of Duck for shopping and dinning. Duck Village is no more then a three minute walk. In Town, you will find wonderful restaurants, uniques shopping. There is a walk way to the sound, with a launch for your kayak. Albemarle and Currituck Sounds are ideal for boating, fishing and fun! Corolla's wild horses have roamed the dunes for four hundred years, and still roam free, but north of Corolla village on the off road beaches.

Other Activities: Great shopping and Restaurants
