About Kathy

We are a military family, with Tim serving over 20 years in the Air Force. We love the Outer Banks and bought the property as a place where we could gather with our family, including our dog.

Kathy purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy chose Duck

This is the best town in the Outer Banks. The stores are so cute, sales are great, everything is within walking distance. We like the restaurants, we love our neighborhood and the neighbors. The Town has been building the most wonderful park, boardwalk and town center. The area has gotten better and better since we first bought it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed by KDC-M on 06/03/2013

We had a wonderful experience at High Dune Hideaway! We were in the area for a wedding and were able to enjoy the amenities of the home with a few family members. The home was large enough that our group of ten adults and three children did not feel overwhelming or on top of each other. With seven bedrooms, a pool, multiple decks, a rec room, and a hot tub - there were plenty of places for us to disperse to while still being together. The neighborhood is very quiet and it is only a short walk to the beach, but please make sure no one parks on the street - before the wedding we had some family that was also in the area for the same wedding meet at the house to swim and then go out to dinner and the neighbors were very upset that someone accidentally parked on the street unknowingly. The owner was contacted, but she was very nice and understanding - just be warned that the neighborhood is very strict about this! Other than the small mishap with parking, we had an absolutely wonderful time and look forward to visiting the area again soon!

Awesome Vacation Home !!!

  • 5 of 5

I honestly think this house is prettier in person........the location is perfect. Down the street is a private beach access - up the street are cute shops, restaurants and ice cream enjoyed while on the boardwalk watching the sunset ! The two dishwashers and refrigerators came in VERY handy and the kitchen was well-stocked with good quality pots and pans and cutlery. Plenty of plates and coffee cups......also, the option of a Keurig and TWO coffee pots. Again, came in very handy with 12 people. I think the drawers had every kitchen tool or gadget imaginable......

The pool got a LOT of use and there were plenty of beach towels and dishtowels. The white linens are a little sparse if you use a lot of bath towels daily......or just wash them in the laundry room on the middle floor.

All in all, I would highly recommend this home. It was great for little ones and dogs, as the top floor (where the kitchen, family room, dining area and master suite are located) had a built-in baby gate.

Thanks for an awesome and very comfortable week !!

Outstanding for families and location can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling can be tough with kids. High Dune Hideaway surpassed all of our expectations and made traveling with our young children and nephews/nieces SO much easier. The owners have literally thought of everything to make this a home away from home especially for families. From the surprise toys and games cabinets that we found the first day to the extra bedding and pool toys we were thrilled with this find. The location to the town and beach couldn't be beat and the parking passes for the beach were an added bonus. When we needed maintenance for a minor issue they came immediately. Both the owner and Southern Shores Realty were a pleasure to work with. We will definitely recommend this property to friends and will be coming back here again!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful vacation!

Great place!

Wonderful large home in Duck - great for our large family. Close to the beach and shops. Homeowners are the best too! Quick responses and action to any questions/concerns. Also, thoughtful to have delivered a "welcome to our house" basket of goodies.

This house was perfect for our large crowd! Kids, grandkids, co-workers, friends, my boyfriend, and myself all had an amazing vacation! Air conditioner wasn't cooling the downstairs, called maintenance, and within an hour it was fixed. Pool stopped filtering, called maintenance and within 2 hours it was fixed AND the pool man came by several times during the week to check on it! Customer service was terrific! The gift basket from the owners was definitely a surprise and much appreciated and enjoyed! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! We will definitely be back!

Optional Travel Insurance: Finally, an insurance company that protects your vacation investment. Take the worry out of planning ahead. Your vacation is a significant investment. Just as you protect your home or car, you should also protect your travel investment. Unforeseen circumstances, illness, and injuries do occur. Protect your family by purchasing CSA Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance. The cost is small compared to your total vacation expense. A detailed informational pamphlet will be sent to you along with your rental lease. If you are not completely satisfied, the insurance policy may be cancelled within 10 days of booking your reservation and prior to your travel date.
Our management company also offers an optional Vacation Rental Damage Protection Plan through its partnership with CSA Travel Protection. Simply make a one time payment of $40, in lieu of a Security Deposit, and avoid the hassle of having to pay for accidental damage later.
Cancellations & Refunds- If you must cancel your confirmed reservation regardless of reason and the unit is not re-rented for the canceled period, you will forfeit all money prepaid. If the unit is re-rented for the entire canceled period, all money prepaid less the cancellation fee and travel insurance will be refunded.
