Why Erik and Shauna Pickering chose Duck
We have been vacationing in Duck for over 12 years and when we moved from California to the East Coast, we began the search for a vacation home here. We fell in love with our house and neighborhood, Schooner Ridge. We updated basically everything - beds, furniture, and electronics, and we can't get down there enough - we love it!

Rendezvous has a spectacular location- only 176 yards away from the beach and right in heart of town.

The Gem of the OBX
Our extended family gets together every year for the holidays. We move the location around every year to keep things interesting for everyone, as family members come from all over the country. This year, we found a true gem in this great house, and also in the OBX.
This is a perfect place for turning people loose and letting them do their thing. There are lots of things for everyone to do, from toddlers to grandparents. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, so the kids took off on their bikes everyday and we didn't have to worry about them. When they got tired of riding around, they could walk over to the clubhouse and swim or play ping-pong. The adults could walk to town in about 10 minutes to shop, eat or grab a drink. It is a wonderful area with lots to do, so nobody gets bored.
The house is terrific. The open concept on the main floor is a generous size and the 3 levels provided plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, giving everyone their space. Our bunch spent a lot of time in the hot tub, at the beach, or baking cookies.
This was our first trip to the OBX and we enjoyed it tremendously. If you're looking for a place to get a large group together, you found it. Our bunch unanimously voted this as the best place yet. We stayed during the Christmas holidays and were pleasantly surprised by the weather. The OBX is likely quite a bit busier during the summer season, but also great in the winter.
Should questions arise during your stay, the hosts are very nice and quick to respond. 5 stars!!
The house was perfectly located in proximity to town and beach. The on-site pool and hot tub were perfect as the riptide made swimming in the ocean off limits. The beach was clean and a 3 min walk from the house. The community pool was large and clean. The opuses has every amenity we could need for cooking and grilling and entertaining a wide variety of ages in the family.
Perfect for a getaway weekend!
We had the BEST weekend at Rendezvous! Our group of 8 moms (with a total of 27 children between us!) had such a relaxing weekend. There was plenty of space to spread out and we enjoyed the decks and the hot tub and pool. It was a super short walk to the beach and a quick one minute drive to the restaurants in Duck. The house was so clean and pretty and well stocked. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we’ll be back!
House is beautiful, clean, and updated. Owner responds promptly to any questions you may have. Great house, great time.

Best house in Duck, OBX
Rendezvous house in Schooner Ridge in Duck, NC was a home away from home. There were 14 in total staying at this property; youngest was 18 months and oldest was late 50’s. The house was able to accommodate all families with us having our own personal space to relax and enjoy. The 7th bedroom off of the 2nd floor master made for a great nursery for our 18 month old daughter. It was a nice, quiet place for her to take naps and sleep, with plenty of room to set up her pac n play. Everyone enjoyed the common area on the 3 rd floor that included an open concept kitchen, dining, and living room which also included a full bath and bedroom. The deck areas off of each floor were awesome, plenty of chairs, a hammock and also tables and benches to eat dinner. This property also included an in ground pool ranging from 2’ -5’, with a hot tub pool side. We enjoyed the 2 outdoor showers when we came back from the beach and getting out of the pool and hot tub. The house also included a sand volley ball court, and basketball hoop. The walk to the beach was short and easy. Once you get down to where you walk from the road to the beach, schooner ridge has a board walk that takes you to the beach or to the ocean side pool for Schooner ridge guests, this was really nice. After spending the day at the beach Schooner ridge offers outdoor showers and a hose to clean all of sand from your gear and yourself. The property included many beach chairs, a cart to haul your gear to the beach, and a few umbrellas. We had beautiful weather all week, rained a few hours Friday. The water temps were around 75 degrees most days. The extra amenities that were included were: extra side by side fridge/freezer with ice maker on lower level, washer and dryer, keurig coffee maker, regular coffee maker, crock pot, electric griddle, stroller, fully stocked kitchen for cooking, rafts for pool use, WiFi, and cable tv to name a few. There definitely has been a lot of updates to this house throughout the years, the beds were also very comfortable. We walked into Duck several times to shop, get ice cream, and watch sunsets. Within a mile of the house there is a small grocery store, gas station, and plenty of places to eat and drink. The boardwalk is within 3/4 of a mile from the house. Highly recommend Waves pizza and Duck Donuts! We hope to book this house again next year for another family trip. Highly recommend booking this house to anyone travelling to OBX!!
