Sugar Shack Home - phenomenal.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed your home. The kitchen was very well stocked. The home was very clean when we arrived. I did bring linens and towels since the web site said they were not provided - that would have saved some packing space for us but that was really minor. The closeness to the beach was wonderful. I loved using the deck during the day as well as loved it in the evening watching the stars while listening to the ocean. It was very interesting when Hermine entered the picture on Friday - it was something that none of us will forget. Thanks for being concerned with us during the storm and we protected your home in every way possible. I wish I would have booked it for 2 weeks - one week with my girls and the next week by myself. It was extremely relaxing and fun. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home. We enjoyed walking into the town of Duck especially going to Duck Donuts. I really appreciated all the phone calls and text messages you sent to me - you were very amazing renters.

Owner's Response: Dear Paula: Janice and I want to thank you for being there during tropical depression Hermine. Your assistance during this time really helped the "Sugar Shack" overcome the high winds and heavy rainfall. Because of your diligence our next guests were able to enjoy the place without incident. Thank you again!!! Your owners Bud & Janice

Great House & Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at the Sugar Shack! Not only was it enough space for us three adults and a two year old, it was equipped with everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable, and super cute. The reno done to the master is very nice and the view doesn't hurt either! My husband and I walked one morning down the street to Duck Donuts and Duck Deli, which wasn't bad at all. The beach is just a few steps away and made for a very easy trip back and forth with the little one. Also, I feel as though the deck picture doesn't do it justice, it is a great space for relaxing and enjoying time outside listening and watching the waves. We couldn't have asked for a better stay or week at the beach! Thank you, Bud and Janice, for the hospitality and care within your beach home. We hope to be back very soon! Lots of love, The Lucks.

Perfect Beach Escape

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our beach vacation which landed us in the Sugar Shack. It was just as described: clean, well appointed and right on the ocean. The owners called the night we arrived and were very responsive to requests. The place was so close to the beach we found that we were horrible beach planners because we could always just "run back to the house" if we forgot something! The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you might need (pots and pans) to make any meal - although we kept it pretty simple. The access to washer and dryer and the outdoor shower really make this place awesome!!! We will surely return to this place and will recommend to our friends!

Owner's Response: Thank you for complimentary review.We've also found that being oceanfront is quite an advantage because our grand kids always seem to leave something behind.

Perfect Stay on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sugar Shack last July. We loved everything about it! It was clean, comfortable and right on the ocean. Bud and Janice called to check on us and offered suggestions for places to visit and restaurants. We plan to return again next summer and make this our yearly summer vacation.

** The Immediate area** Sugar Shack is just feet to the beach and short stroll to town. Park your car when you arrive and forget about it until you leave.

There are too many activities to list, and many are unique to the Duck area!

Many describe Duck...as being the best town on the Outer Banks! Quaint, charming, and yet has all high-end amenities. Biker/pedestrian-friendly throughout. Stroll to some of the best restaurants, spas, shops, and sights around.

*Local information*Even if you've been to the OBX before, there are many attractions that might surprise you! :)

- The NEW 80-acre water park includes multiple water slide complexes, massive wave pool, adventure lagoon and lazy river, and a FlowRider surf ride attraction. Over two acres will be dedicated to a state-of-the-art children’s adventure area with a double entry wave pool and other innovative, interactive play areas and structures. Fifty private, wait-serviced cabanas, diverse food and beverage options, and retail venues are some of the many amenities to be offered.

This NEW addition to the OBX experience will be truly an UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE!

- Speaking of UNFORGETTABLE- Take a KAYAK TOUR of the alligator river (yes, there are alligators in N.C.) and maybe you'll get to hear one of the critically endangered RED WOLVES unique only to eastern N.C.

For the birders, visit the Audubon Pine island bird sanctuary. The Sanctuary is one of the last pieces of untouched property on the northeastern portion of the Outer Banks, preserving 2,600 acres of marsh, upland maritime forest and sandy beaches, as well as the historical beauty of the Outer Banks. The Sanctuary remains largely free from development, so birds and wildlife can continue to have a safe place to thrive free from human disturbance, and you can HIKE , PICNIC , go HANG-GLIDING (all levels, or tandem) , and LEARN at the top-notch visitors' center.

- Enjoy every WATERSPORT you can imagine, as a learner or expert, including SURFING , KAYAKING , PADDLE BOARDING , JET SKIING , TUBING , PARASAILING , SAILING , CATAMARAN(ing?), etc.



- Go CRABBING , SHRIMPING, or FISHING...so many options: deep-sea, surf, pier, sound...

- And, of course, GOLF! - Imagine golfing in a Southern Pine forest facing the Currituck Sound. Numerous DRIVING RANGES, and MINIATURE GOLF COURSES.
