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.

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!

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 !

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property ! Right on the beach (I do not think it can get closer than this), 15-20 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride to the town (restaurants, bars, boardwalk)- there is a paved bike/walk path running parallel to the road to the town. No big chain stores in the town but the town has everything you would need for a few days there.

House was well stocked, although linens were not provided- maybe its a VRBO thing. Very nice decor. Amazing view from the living room. The clothes dryer was broken- may be it was broken right before we checked in and they did not get to fix it, I don't know.

Overall a memorable experience ! I would definitely come back again and bring friends with us if we can- I am sure this place is booked months in advance.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Duck with phenomenal beach access! You cannot beat the view! The inside is also nicely decorated and comfortable for a small group. It was great to be able to bring our dog with and very convenient to have a single level floor plan indoors. The stairs to the front of the house are a bit steep, but as is the case with the majority of the elevated homes built in this area.

For the price point, it would have been preferable to have some updated kitchen ware and the screen to the back patio has some small holes which can let the dune bugs in at night and is probably on the list of future fixes, but those are minor. Also, something to know, paper products and linens are not included, but that was clearly outlined in the check in information the owners provide, so we were prepared.

Overall this is a nice rental in a great location, and we would return!

Spring Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week here with my kids and my brothers kids. Perfect setup with bedrooms on either side of the house. Great renovations in every room, including bathrooms! I was hoping the house was just as beautiful as the pictures and it did NOT disappoint! Weather was cold that week but there was lots to do nearby. The town of Duck was super cute, lots of good food. Can't wait to stay again, hopefully when it's warmer!

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.
