LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! This location gives you the best of all worlds. It is a three-minute walk to the beach and a seven-minute walk to the heart of Duck. Leave the car parked. You can stroll anywhere including to restaurants, bakeries, ice cream shops, pizza places, the sweet shop, water sport rentals, bike rentals/paths, groceries, clothing shops, yoga, art stores, the book store, unique novelty and gift shops, the Duck boardwalk, the Sound, and THE OCEAN/BEACH. The park/playground and the kayak and paddle board ramp on the sound side is very close too!

Also, The Blue Box is the ideal location for the July 4th Town of Duck parade, which passes right in front of the house. Spend a day at the beach and enjoy ocean breezes from the deck at night. Watch beautiful sunrises over the ocean in the morning and stroll down to the sound front for dinner and take in a spectacular sunset.

ABOUT THE HOME: newly renovated and completely updated beach home that sleeps 6 very comfortably.

Bedroom Master (upstairs): king-sized bed, en suite bathroom, and sliding doors that open onto a sun deck. If you look through the trees from this deck, you can catch a glimpse of the ocean and watch the sun rise as you enjoy the sound of the ocean waves.

Bedroom 2 (entry level, north facing): two comfy full beds with a window to the quiet backyard.

Bedroom 3 (entry level, south facing): one comfy queen bed and a window for great daylight.

The second full bathroom is also on the entry level and is in the hallway outside these bedrooms.

NOTE: We do NOT supply bed or bath linens.

The living area has a full wall of sliding glass doors that exit onto the wrap-around deck. Lounge on the Adirondack chairs as you listen to the ocean waves. When you are ready for a meal, use the gas grill, charcoal grill, or the completely updated kitchen to prepare something yummy. Eat in the sunny dining area or perhaps on the screened-in porch that sits off the elevated kitchen. And for the times when you don't feel like cooking, you can walk in minutes to any number of local restaurants or call for delivery.

Headed to the beach? Grab the beach chairs, drink cooler, and beach umbrella from the utility room and take a 3-minute stroll to the Christopher Drive private beach entry.

The house also has a large yard, basketball hoop, ring & hook game, a hammock, and plenty of space for kids (or adults) to play in a delightful neighborhood. And, when you are back indoors, you can watch cable or download a movie on one of two flat screen, smart TVs; listen to music from the docking station; connect to the WiFi; play cards or board games; read; and relax!

The evenings at the house are wonderful. In addition to listening to the ocean waves, you can watch the sun make its journey from east to west, while enjoying the serenity of this area that is dotted with green trees. When the sun has set, the quiet night gives way to a brilliant starry sky (and we have a telescope).

Seaside treasure close to the beach and town

  • 5 of 5

Loved the blue box. There were many cute aspects to the house, like a hammock and swing beneath the house, lovely porch off the kitchen and nice side deck on the house. Loved how close it was to the beach. Our three year olds did fine walking to it every day. THey had child proofed it a bit with some gates which was nice. Bathrooms were on the smaller side but had everything you needed with lots of hooks to hang things on. I was very impressed with the Blue Box and would definitely stay there again. So close to the quaint town of Duck- right down the street, a 10 minute walk to Duck Donuts or 2 minute drive.

Wonderful stay over Memorial Day weekend in Duck!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for an extended weekend around Memorial Day and had the BEST time! Although it was just the two of us, the house was the perfect size! We cooked most of our lunches and dinners at the house which had everything we needed. There was a brand new gas grill under the house and the kitchen had a pristine oven and stove top. We loved eating on the screened in porch which protected us no matter the weather. Other areas of the house we enjoyed were the hammock and the basketball net. One afternoon a thunderstorm came through and we enjoyed just staying in and watching a movie on our Netflix account via the Smart TV. The wifi was also excellent throughout the house. The location of this house cannot be beat! We walked to the beach (just up the block) every day and enjoyed taking long walks down to the nearest pier. In the other direction, we were able to easily walk into town to do shopping or eat breakfast at many of the local favorites (Duck Donuts!). The Duck boardwalk also begins very near to the house, and we walked there several times too in order to watch the sunset and rent a kayak. There is also a walking/running/bike path right at the end of the street. We explored other areas of the Outer Banks too including Corolla and Kitty Hawk/Nags Head area, all of which were easily accessible by car. On Memorial Day weekend, although the road to Duck is only one lane, we never encountered traffic. We're already looking to plan our return to The Blue Box!

We Loved the Blue Box!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great OBX vacation, starting with our arrival at the Blue Box. We were thrilled to walk into a home that was immaculately clean! The decor is very charming and made us feel right at home. We were a perfect walking distance from both the beach and the town of Duck. We have two teenage boys and a 10 year old daughter and felt this home was the perfect size to enable just enough personal space while still providing a great gathering space for family game time! We would absolutely recommend this home for a family and hope to return.
