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!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 (7 adults and 7 kids) had a wonderful week in Duck. This house has it all! Location is perfect, walkable to beach and cute boardwalk/shops/restaurants. The house itself has so much space and great common areas. Kitchen is stocked with anything you would need to prepare meals (even a lime juicer!). We hit the jackpot with this house. VERY happy with our stay. The parking passes for the beach were great, as were the beach towels, wagon and the pool/hot tub were also key! We hope to be back!

I absolutely loved the house, the area, and might have found a place for retirement!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn’t be happier with this house! The house is located in the middle of everything! 5 min walk up the street to the beach. 5 min walk down the street to the shops and restaurants on the main drag. The house itself is beautiful with more then enough room for the 8 of us who stayed there. Because the weather was great, we hung out at the beach or the pool most days while the kids swam. The pool area is a great place to congregate and the pool itself was well maintained and very clean. The owners provide everything and although we didn’t have any issues, help was only a phone call away for any problems we may have encountered. Overall, this is a great house that I would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet place in Outer Banks/Duck, NC and I will definitely be renting this property again in the future. The only thing I would warn about is the steps. Wasn’t a problem for us at all but with the living room, kitchen, and dining area being located on the 3rd floor, it’s a lot of up and down for maybe someone who is elderly or has any kind of problems climbing stairs. Other then that, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Lovely Home, Great Location, Suberb Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

We just retured from our stay at HighDune Hideaway in Duck. This trip was a bucket list item for our dog that has end stage liver to disease. This house was everything we wanted and more. I'm very familar with OBX and Duck is charming and fun. The house was lovely, clean and orderly- all sheets on beds, towels were ready for us, every kitchen tool you can imagine, grill, pool (which can be heated), hot tub, pool table, and this great 2-person swing on the second level. The location is a short walk to the beach. And the customer service was fantastic.

I would highly recommend this home for your OBX vacation.

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.
