About the property

5 Bdrm/5 Bath, Private Pool, Hot Tub, Multi-level Ocean View Decks Beach House

Our charming comfortable five bedroom /five bathroom beach house with large in-ground pool (un-heated) and hot tub is located semi-ocean front (just one house back from the beach) from the beach in Duck. It is only 100 steps from the driveway to the dune (OK...I have long legs, so it may take you 125!!). We are only a 10 minute walk to the quaint village of Duck, Outer Banks North Carolina, right opposite Duck Donuts! Our spacious ocean side outdoor decks and seating, the tiki bar and pool entertaining area around our large in-ground pool and full sized sandy volley ball court, coupled with our large lot and semi-ocean front location, makes this one of the nicest homes in Duck.

Inside our home we have three levels. The ground level has a Twin bedroom, bath and TV room with glass sliding doors that open to the swimming pool entertaining area with tiki bar set up, hot tub, outdoor shower, spacious pool deck, and covered porch seating. The laundry area with full sized washer and dryer are also located on the ground level.

The mid-level area has our fully renovated kitchen with all new appliances, living room with new sofa and matching chairs with large flat-screen, full sized tv. Our dining room seats 10. Bedrooms on this level are a queen bedroom with private bath and one King bedroom with hall bath. The top level has a loft reading/office open area overlooking the lower livingroom/dining area with glass sliders leading out to our top deck with spectacular views of the ocean, sunrises and lovely sunsets. There is one Queen bedroom with private bath and one King bedroom with hall bath.

We have speakers throughout the house, so bring your iPad to connect! Inside system is Bose, and there are also speakers outside in the pool area.

Note: No elevator. Stairs to main living area and to second story bedrooms.

Bedding: Two kings, two queens, two Twins.

Amenities include: private pool (not heated- open mid-May to mid-October only) bar area by pool, hot tub by pool, outside shower, volley ball court, cable TV, free WiFi, DVD player, CD player, dishwasher, cook top stove, oven, telephone with free US/Canada/Mexico dialing, charcoal barbecue grilling, washer and dryer, decks with deck furniture, pool chairs/furniture, parking for four cars.

The village of Duck is quaint, beautiful and welcoming with wonderful local unique shops, cozy cafes, grocery stores, delicious restaurants and water sports entertainment. Duck also has a unique sound side coastal boardwalk that provides great bird watching over the Sound and beautiful sunset vistas, dining, shopping, and dog-walking. Kayakers float by adding to the scenery. Great for families and couples who wish to walk around Duck after a fantastic day on the beach.

For car trips and sight seeing during rainy days, you are spoiled for choice: lighthouses, shopping, and a must visit to Jockey's Ridge, the east coast's largest sand dune and site of the Wright brothers first flight! Visit the Wright Brothers national monument and museum nearby and learn about our country's aviation history and first flight. Head north to Corolla for tours to visit the wild banker ponies, protected and wild. Year round the town of Duck is full of wonderful things to see, places to shop, eat, and enjoy beach 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 OBX BOX. We love its beach and town of Duck location. It is just the right size for our family gatherings 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 OBX BOX. We look forward to sharing it with you and your family. We hope you will select OBX BOX as your beach vacation get away and that you will make great beach memories to cherish in the years to come.

Mike and Mary Hayward purchased this house in 2016

Why Mike and Mary Hayward chose Duck

OBX BOX is located semi-ocean front on one of the most beautiful east coast beaches in the U.S. It has the best view and is 2 minutes to the beach, right across the beach access walkway for year round beach front enjoyment! Spectacular sunrises and moon rises greet you daily! We have had so much fun making OBX BOX a comfortable place to relax with many details we enjoy for our own comfort and down time. We enjoy our morning coffee on OBX BOX's ocean views deck and our lovely sunsets from our top side deck. We love the pelican drive-bys and enjoy the wildlife (deer! foxes!) that scamper near by.

OBX BOX is located 10 minutes by foot to 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

-Your own private pool large (12x30) and the beach just a short walk away

-Lovely home interiors with comfy sleeping, modern kitchen and little places to retreat

-Great shopping, restaurants and boardwalk within walking distance

-Outer Banks special sights:

There are four great lighthouses that are worth seeing - the Currituck Beach ighthouse 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.

Great House and Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was quite spacious and easily accommodated two adults and four children. The beach access is amazing and we were so close to everything! It was an easy walk into Duck to visit the shops and restaurants.

Great week...great house...great owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house...and Mike was very accommodating and responsive. Directly across from beach access, and the street its located on is directly across from the Duck Boardwalk. Very reasonable weekly rate for a semi-oceanfront house. We'd definitely stay here again.

Family Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The OBX BOX...didn't feel like a box at all! Loved the layout of the house. Great open space for family gathering and perfect location. Third floor loft was perfect for our Yoga Workouts! Beautiful view of the ocean !The beds in ALL the rooms were SO comfortable, everyone got a great nights sleep (even my Mom, who is a tough one to please when it comes to the comfort of a bed) Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at OBX BOX. The location is the best! Nice amenities at the house. We only wish the weather had been a little better. No swimming signs were up all week. Thank goodness for the pool! The shopping, boardwalks, wild horses and restaurants in Duck were superb!
