Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Full Baths, Best Deck on the Beach and Steps to the Surf

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. Amenities include high speed WiFi, new flat screen TVs in every room with premium cable, new stove, granite/stainless modern kitchen, full-size washer/dryer, dishwasher, new ceiling fans, central a/c, brand new bathrooms, dining for eight, deck chairs and outdoor beach front picnic table, private beach access right in front of our home, private outdoor shower, ample private parking, and much more!

Spindrift features a beautiful, oceanfront sundeck with infinity-edge views—perfect for watching the sunrise over the surf, sunbathing, and relaxing to the sounds of the waves. 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 Outer Banks

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.

Paradise, Well-Appointed Style

  • 5 of 5

The photo you see is exactly what you get here at Spindrift, the best little beach house on the eastern seaboard. Steps from the oceanfront beach, which at its most crowded had three other people and two other dogs on it. The layout of the house itself was absolutely perfect and comfortable, with plenty of books and DVDs and games and thoughtful touches everywhere. Especially noteworthy was the extremely well-appointed kitchen--whether you want to bake a pizza or whip up smoothies or shuck oysters or put together a casserole, you will have absolutely everything you need to do it.

Wonderful winter stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home for a long weekend in the off season. We really enjoyed the direct beach view and access! The space and layout of the home were perfect for our family. It was well appointed as well. We will definitely look for opportunities to stay at this wonderful home. Thanks for great stay!

Owner's Response: We are pleased you loved Spindrift's righ above the dunes location - views can't be beat and you are right there on the beach! Coming in the off season is gives you empty beaches, great views of the migratory birds flying up and down the coast line and sometimes you even get a chance to watch wonderful Nor'esters blowing in. Fabulous!

Wonderful property in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Spindrift is a beachfront property that exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were like new, the layout was perfect for our family of 5, the kitchen was well enough appointed that we had everything we needed to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for our family. Couple this with the location - 10 steps to the beach, sunrise and dolphin watching from the large comfortable deck, 1 mile from the vibrant town center of Duck - and you can see why we can't wait to come back! Thanks Mike and Mary for making this a special vacation for our family!

Owner's Response: Thanksgiving at Spindrift is truly memory making - eating turkey dinner while you watch the surf from our great room's big windows - followed by a long walk on the beach to "earn" that pumpkin pie, and then later, when everyone has turned in but you, stepping out on the deck and watching the moonrise while the surf rolls in, just you....that's Thanksgiving at the beach.
