About Stephen Kuehm

We first came to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the fall of 1990, just after the birth of our son. Now, more than 24 years later, after renting various homes in Duck, Kill Devil Hills, Salvo, and Frisco, we've finally decided it's time to have a place of our own. And if you're at all familiar with the area, you know that Duck is the place to be! There's no six lane highway just outside your door, there's no endless stream of cars inhibiting your access to the beach, and there's no 45 minute to 1 hour drive after you cross the sound! Duck is less than 10 minutes from the Wright Memorial bridge - even during the peak of the summer season. There is no road to cross to get to the beach and you can walk from one end of town to the other in just a few minutes.

We hope that you enjoy your time in Duck as much as we do.

Regards,

Anne & Steve

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect size house for small family. Great location to town and to the beach. Our favorite thing to do is to walk into town (about 10 minutes) and get coffee. The house is well stocked with everything you could possible need and more. We'll be coming back next year!

Just where I wanted to be

  • 5 of 5

One of the main reasons we went was to attend the Duck Jazz Festival. I wanted to be right in Duck. The house wasn't on a "main" road so we didn't have much traffic going through - which is great!! The house was clean & had everything we needed. Another plus - we could walk down the road to the beach. There was a boardwalk right at the end of the street. Oh man, if I could only bottle up that sound. The table was perfect for playing cards & dominoes (which we did on a couple of rainy days). I LOVED the outdoor shower. The owner was great to work with & answered any questions / texts really fast. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Outer Banks Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to make a "bucket list" trip to the Outer Banks with little advance planning and no knowledge of the area. Thankfully, I found the Daffy Duck property in Duck, NC, which proved to be the perfect place for us. The owner, Steve, did everything possible to facilitate and enhance our stay. This cottage has an open floor plan, with 3 bedrooms to provide ample accommodations for up to 7 people. Beds were extremely comfortable, and other furnishings added to a relaxed and "home away from home" atmosphere. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped, as is the living area, with countless videos, books, and games to choose from. The screened-in porch and roof-top deck were wonderful, because the cottage is so close to the ocean that you can hear waves from either location. I loved the fact that a beautiful beach was less than a 5 minute walk from the property. Duck proved to be the perfect location for us because we wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. The location allows you easy access to anywhere you want to go in the Outer Banks, while allowing you a quiet, private retreat when you've finished sightseeing for the day. Local restaurants were excellent, and literally took minutes to drive to and from. I wholeheartedly recommend this property, and would love to return in the future.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

My visit to Duck was a most delightful retreat. The cottage provided comfort convenience & a location I found most pleasing. I loved the outdoor shower, the rooftop deck & the 4 comfy bicycles made exploring the island magical. I would never imagined I could obtain so much at this price point. Thank you Steve & Anne for sharing your little world with me, I’m dreaming of returning. xo Cynthia

Perfect cottage house on a quiet street. Steps away from the beach. Hope to bring our girls here many more time.

Outer Banks 2017, Daffy Duck

  • 5 of 5

Oh my. From the onset, working with Steve was wonderful He provided answers about the location and set my mind at ease about Hurricane Irma and her wrath - she did not disturb us at all. The house is very welcoming, and feels very much like "home". It was immaculately clean, and everything was in good functioning order. The house is close enough to the ocean to hear the waves at night, along with the other night sounds. Walking distance to the beach is a plus. The neighborhood seemed very quiet, even with ongoing new house construction. The neighborhood was very clean, too. Beautiful home, wonderful location, if only we could have stayed longer.

Perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at Daffy Duck. We rode bikes into town almost daily, walked and biked to the beach, and enjoyed the many books, movies, board games, and puzzles that were provided. If you are looking for luxury- this might not be your place. But if you want a comfortable cozy place to getaway with your crew- this will absolutely do the trick. We were very pleased.
