Views, views, and views! Sparkling, clean, and comfortable, our beautifully decorated oceanfront home is perfect for families and friends looking for a fantastic beach front vacation rental in Duck, NC (winner in the top 10 coastal towns in the US by USA Today!). Our home, “Spindrift,” is perched just above the dunes, seconds to the surf with endless views of the crystalline ocean and sandy beach.

Spindrift has all the comforts of home, with a great H-shaped plan that provides two 2-bedroom wings (two queens; one queen and one single/single-bunk and single/full bunk beds) with full baths, separated by a great room and fully equipped granite/stainless modern kitchen.

Look for pods of dolphins or flocks of pelicans flying in and out of the waves from the deck or from Spindrift’s great room and two ocean front master bedrooms!

In addition to our fantastic sunning deck, our private outdoor shower and dressing room are perfect for rinsing the sea water off after an ocean swim. We also have beach chairs and umbrellas in our garage beach box for you to use for relaxing on the beach. If you want a little swimming pool action, Spindrift’s Sea Ridge community pool is just a short walk away. This home is beach time all the time!

Spindrift is a beautiful mile-and-a-half walk or drive to the heart of the Village of Duck, which offers unique shopping, a spa, sport rentals, great dining, coffee houses, bookstores, a sound-side boardwalk, a wonderful park with children’s play area, morning yoga on the town green, and live music venues, not to mention groceries and seasonal local fresh fish and vegetables at the local food stands in the summer.

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, just this year we took the plunge and now own Spindrift. It is just the right size and is our special haven to escape to when the pressures of real life get to us and we need ocean beach time to regroup. We hope you too will find that peace of mind and sense of rejuvenation that we get each time we come to Spindrift. We look forward to sharing it with you and your family. We hope you will select Spindrift as your beach vacation rental to make cherishable beach memories to remember in the years to come.

Mike and Mary Hayward purchased this house in 2015

Why Mike and Mary Hayward chose Duck

Spindrift is located right on the ocean on one of the most beautiful east coast beaches in the U.S. It has the best view and private access for year round beach front enjoyment! Spectacular sunrises and moon rises greet you daily! We have had so much fun making Spindrift a comfortable place to relax with many details we enjoy for our own comfort and down time. We enjoy our morning coffee on Spindrift's ocean front deck and our lovely sunsets from our sound side deck. Sometimes we see dolphins swimming right in front of Spindrift and deer grazing right in back of Spindrift!

Spindrift is located only a mile and half from the town of Duck, which is a very walkable, bike and dog-friendly quaint coastal village with super friendly folk and wonderful shopping, dining and many fun things to do for you and the family. You can rent kayaks, canoes, bikes, tandem bikes, etc., to enjoy the walking/biking trail and many water activities Duck has to offer. Take yoga classes on the Duck green in the summer or in the winter practice yoga at Village Yoga. Watch family friendly free movies on Friday evenings on the town green in the summer, stroll the sound-side boardwalk for ice cream, Duck Doughnuts, and watch the ospreys nesting. We love it here and come all the time.

What makes this house unique

With the beach in front of you and great shopping, restaurants and a park within walking distance, you may not want to get into your car to explore the many exciting places on the Outer Banks. There are four great lighthouses that are worth seeing - the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and Ocracoke Island Lighthouse which you have to take a ferry to get to the island. The Whalehead Club and Wildlife Educational Center are interesting. The site of the first airplane flight by the Wright brothers is a National Park in Kill Devil Hills. The park displays replicas of the original Wright Flyer. Jockey's Ridge, the tallest sand dune on the east coast is in Nags Head. Climbing to the top to view the sunset over the sound is memorable. Keep driving south on Rt. 12 and you reach Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Oregon Inlet. A visit to the Manteo Waterfront and the Elizabethan Gardens is a great trip. Don't forget Jeannette's Pier in south Nags Head for fishing and aquariums.

Notes:
Fall and winter bring their own charm to the Outer Banks. The big crowds are gone and long walks on the beach often have one set of foot prints - yours. September and October are warm and golden; the sea oats are full and heavy, waving over the dunes. The traffic is gone, so a trip to watch the fish come in or just to go out to dinner is a pleasure - no waiting. If fishing is your passion, the piers and the surf off of our beach have produced fantastic catches. Golf is another activity that is more pleasurable during warm days in fall and winter. There are many courses to choose from and again - no waiting. Most of the shops have 'end of the season' sales and the restaurants are happy to see you without reservations. Shells on the beach appear more plentiful. Many people - including the owners - prefer this slower season.

Very nice place! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is right on the beach, just the way it looks in the pictures. In fact, everything about the house is as pictured or better. Nicely decorated, comfortable, and kitchen is pretty well-stocked. We would stay here again.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

For the third straight year, we spent four days in January at Spindrift. Although it was mostly colder this time, we still enjoyed the cozy confines of this lovely cottage on the ocean. The water was rough but amazing, and looking at the whitecaps and waves splashing on shore never gets old!! We are planning to return again in 2019 and hope for warmer weather next time.

A Perfect Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

For those of us who travel a lot in the winter months, this is a perfect place to stay. The home is very inviting and comfortable for a small number of guests. It is right on the beach with a great view of the ocean from a bank of large windows - especially on cold windy days when beach walking isn't a rational idea. It is also a quick drive to Kitty Hawk where there are more shopping options than Duck can offer in the Winter. We have long searched for a place on the Banks to make our "winter home". This will definitely fit that bill. We will return.

Perfectly Appointed Home

  • 5 of 5

About the Home:

This home had more than enough bedrooms for our family. It was perfectly appointed with nice touches such as videos, a couple of games, binoculars, and several interesting books about the area. Best of all, was "dog friendly" to our small dog! If you have a herding dog that needs to keep an eye on all family members, this is perfect because it is single-story with 2 bedrooms on each side of the great room (where our dog "took up watch" on everyone). My mother is 92 with slight arthritis in her knees, but it was easy to navigate the rear stairs due to a landing where we could all take a break and enjoy the view. The rear deck is fantastic (as you can see by the photos). We have stayed in many beautiful homes in Duck, but will stay at this home in the future. Again, it was simply perfect for our family.

About the Home's Location:

Speaking of dogs, Duck NC allows off-leash dogs on the beach if they remain under control by command; thus, Duck is our beach destination of choice even though it is significantly farther away from our home than other beaches (8 hrs as opposed to 3). The neighborhood for this home is beside the Research Pier, which provides extra darkness if you are star gazing or watching meteor showers. Star gazing is a must-do-item if you are in Duck, the 4WD area, or Hatteras due to lack of light pollution. Because of Duck's dog friendly policies, we have stayed in Duck over 10 times in less than 5 years, though we just found this home the last time we were in Duck. We will return to Duck next year, and will definitely stay in this house.
