Overview

About the property

Oceanfront View; Steps to The Beach; 1 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 4-5

This is a beautiful, newly decorated condo located just steps to the beach! Our condo is on the 2nd floor with fantastic views of the ocean and ocean front pool (unheated) from every window. The large deck right off the living room is the perfect spot to relax to the sound of the surf, to watch the sun rise and dolphins play at dawn (or all day!) in the ocean, or to idle the day away. Bring your binoculars or use ours for close ups of the dolphins, pelicans, seagulls etc. Our unit offers a master bedroom with king bed, two full baths (unique and super convenient for a family) sleep sofa queen bed (NEW), hallway XL single berth bed, fully appointed kitchen (including coffee maker, blender, toaster, dishwasher!), two flat screen TVs (living room and master bedroom), free WiFi, brand new deck swing, new keyless entry system, and much more. Please note our condo is on the second floor of a three story building with stairs and no elevator.

Our beach-- only steps away from our condo -- features coastal dunes, soft creamy sand, nice surf and great beach combing. We have beach chairs and boogie boards for your use during your visit.

In addition to our beach front, our condo community has an outdoor pool open year round (unheated), outdoor grills, basketball and tennis courts, pool side restrooms, and oceanfront showers and laundry facilities.

We are only a short 15 minute walk to the lovely, historical village of Duck where you can enjoy the lovely shops, buy groceries, eat at great restaurants and cafes, buy books and sip coffee at Duck Cottage, rent bikes to ride on the jogging trails, walk the sound-side boardwalk for bird watching, and rent canoes, kayaks and other water sport equipment.

Bring your binoculars to bird watch and get great close ups of dolphins in our surf. Superb viewing from our deck!

About Mike and Mary Hayward

We have been coming to Duck for almost two decades to vacation. Each time we were here we would fantasize about owning a little something of this wonderful island to enjoy whenever we could. Finally, we took the plunge this past Fall and now own Dolphin Dawn, WaveHi! and Dune Nest. They are just the right size and each one is of of our little places to escape to when the pressures of real life get to us. We hope you too will find that peace of mind and sense of rejuvenation that we get each time we come back to Dolphin Dawn. We look forward to sharing it with you! We hope you will select Dolphin Dawn as your vacation rental and help us with providing great reviews to share with future vacationers.

Mike and Mary Hayward purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mike and Mary Hayward chose Outer Banks

Dolphin Dawn is located right on the ocean on one of the most beautiful east coast beaches in the U.S. The town of Duck is a quaint coastal village with super friendly folk and wonderful shopping, dining and many fun things to do. You can rent kayaks, canoes, bikes, tandem bikes, tc. to enjoy the many water activities Duck has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite thing about Dolphin Dawn is the oceanfront location and view. When you step out on the deck the view and sound of the surf is the most magical sound in the world! We have a porch swing on our deck and have enjoyed watching the sunrise, seeing the dolphins play, while sipping our coffee or an evening glass of wine. Perfect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was a delight.  We so appreciated the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the kitchen.  The view from the porch was fabulous.  I wish I could package it to bring back to Ohio!

Long Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo. Even though the condo is small it met our needs and was clean and nicely decorated. The view from the deck is awesome. A great place to relax and get away :)

Great location! The balcony view alone is worth it.

  • 3 of 5

A great spot to hit the beach. The pool was immaculately cleaned and taken care of. The condo complex obviously is showing some signs of aging. This specific unit could use some new linens/upholstery- stains on daybed spread and couch. The stove was missing a burner. That said, you can't beat it for the price. The location is great, and the condo has pretty much everything you'd need.

Duck,NC is indeed a nice place. The apartment is clean, cozi and has everything you need at hand. Very close to the beach and shops.

Yes, I would recommend and plan to rent it again.

We loved the view of the ocean and the breeze. It was nice sitting out on the deck. The condo was the right size for our family. It was a very nice place. I would stay there again.

We travel to OBX every year for a much needed family vacation. This outstanding condo had just what you need to relax, unwind and enjoy a stay at the beach! Well cared for and full of warm, welcoming touches. We cannot say enough about the condo, the outstanding owners were fantastic!

Our condo is located in the much sought after area of Duck. The village of Duck is quaint, beautiful and welcoming with wonderful local shops, cafes, grocery stores, restaurants and water sports entertainment. Duck also has a unique coastal boardwalk that provides great bird watching over the Sound and beautiful sunset vistas. Great for families who wish to walk around Duck after a fantastic day on the beach.

For car trips and sight seeing during rainy days, you must visit Jockey's Ridge, the east coast's largest sand dune and site of the Wright brothers first flight! Visit the Wright Brothers national monument and museum and learn about our country's aviation history and first flight.
