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).

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at the Blue Box and already can't wait to return. The home was clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The master bedroom was very spacious. The two additional bedrooms were on the smaller side, but were perfect for our two young children (6 y/o and 2 y/o). And speaking of children: this house was perfect for them. The furniture was comfy and sturdy, and there weren't too many breakable decorations or the like for us to worry about keeping out of the hands of our 2 year old. That is not to say that adults would have found the home lacking in decor and charm - it totally has both in spades. It's the perfect balance of well-themed decor without clutter. The kitchen space was large and well laid out. The bathrooms were a bit tight, but fine for us. There was a lot of bonus space outside the house too: the screened in porch, the main deck, the second deck off the master, the large car port, and the huge back yard - all great! Ditto with all the surprising extras like plenty of beach chairs, toys, a cooler and way more. And best of all: the location! Less than five minutes to the beach and about ten minutes to restaurants, shopping, and the sound from boardwalk. Lastly, the owner was a dream to work with. All questions were quickly addressed and everything was as promised. What more can you ask for?

Clean, Cool and Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived an hour early and the house was spotless, AC was on (94 and humid that day!) and everything was as advertised on line. All of the bedrooms were very comfortable, clean and roomy. The additional touches such as the Bose bluetooth speaker, extra amenities for the beach, outside decks and screened porch made the stay extra special. The location is perfect in a quiet neighborhood and very short walk to the beach and a little longer walk to the downtown. What appears to be recent renovations were very well done, nicely decorated and made the place feel new.

Would definitely recommend and will likely return!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect spot - turn left from the front door and walk to the beach, or turn right and walk to Duck's quaint Scarborough shopping areas. The house is clean, very comfortable, and incredibly cute! There is great outdoor seating to enjoy breakfast or soak up some sun, and our toddler loved the swing and hammock downstairs. We found all the amenities we needed and really felt at home here. Bernadette made the rental process very easy. I hope to come back!

Great Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent our Thanksgiving holiday at The Blue Box in Duck and we couldn't have been happier. The Blue Box is beautifully decorated, filled with amenities and in an awesome location. It is on a charming beach road, equidistant from the beach and from Scarborough Fair with it's charming shops. Thanks to the Holloways for their hospitality and their lovely home!
