Duck, NC 27949

Inn Like Flynn is only used by families. During peak summer season, we are a Sunday - Sunday rental. We are a non-smoking home.

Inn Like Flynn is a child-friendly, pet-friendly, super-stocked & CLEAN home!! Inn Like Flynn is an amazing beach home in the heart of Duck, NC. This is not your typical, bare and worn beach home. It has everything you need and more! You can walk to the Atlantic Ocean at one end of our street or the Currituck Sound at the other end. Our street is in the HEART of Duck so you can walk everywhere!

DISTANCE TO BEACH: This home is on a street that is less than 1/2 mile long and has the Currituck Sound at one end and the Atlantic Ocean at the other. Our home is roughly 500 yards to the Atlantic Ocean and less than 200 yards to Route 12/Currituck Sound. You can walk to the beach in 5 minutes or you have the option to park your car full of beach items at the end of the street since we are a private neighborhood.

What we love about Inn Like Flynn the most are our GUESTS! We have a lot of families that come back year after year and everyone treats our home like it is theirs. We have a "pay it forward" policy and our wonderful Guests leave spices, coffee filters and other kitchen supplies for the next guest.

We want you to feel like our house is a home for your family during your vacation. Upon arrival, you will have a welcome basket of some toilet paper, trash bags, compactor bag and there are hand towels throughout the house as well as soap dispensers filled in each bathroom. We do supply dishwasher or washing machine supplies but most guests will find some left by prior guests.

1/2 of a mile from the house is Tommy's Market, Wee Winks Market, Duck Seafood, ABC Liquor store, Wings Beach Store and many, many other shops for all of your needs. As you enter the Outer Banks over the bridge, there is a 24 hour Harris Teeter Grocery store to stock up on all of your needs as well as a Food Lion and Super Wal-Mart there too.

Inn Like Flynn is located in the heart of Duck, North Carolina (Outer Banks). You can walk to all of the restaurants, shops and bars. North of you is Corolla where the horses run wild and there's a 4-wheel drive area of the beach. South of you is Kitty Hawk and Nags Head, where there is so much to do, it is hard to list it all. I have a document to email you of what to do and see in the OBX.

The Outer Banks is a wonderful island that offers just about everything for a family vacation. Amazing golf courses, warm water, long beaches, all of the water sports you can dream up - plus amazing restaurants and shopping!

While our home has enough to sleep 18, we have found that occupancy over 14 is too tight for the layout of our home given our 5th bedroom also serves as the game room. Therefore, we only rent to parties of 14 and under.

There are a LOT amenities - some highlighted are:

5 bedroom, 4.5 baths, plus a crib and 2 port-a-cribs

Outdoor: pool, hot tub, hammock, porch bed, basketball, dog pen

Game Room with: pool table, dartboard, two TVs, surround sound, wetbar, ice machine, full bath and 2 (double size) futons.

Great Room with: 32' TV, wet bar, surround sound, over 30 board games, over 100 movies, awesome Currituck Sound views, fully stocked kitchen!! You'll be impressed!

Rates are ALL INCLUSIVE OF: Taxes (13.75%), Cleaning, Bed Linens, Bath Towels and use of Pool and Hot Tub. We do NOT supply beach towels. **If bringing pets, we do have a $150 fee and allow up to 2 dogs.

Pool is open from May 1st - October 31st weather permitting (it is NOT heated).

Thanks for looking!! We know you'll love it here!

Why Joelle Flynn chose Duck

Duck has everything you want in a family vacation. The Town of Duck is so beautiful and the residents are very welcoming. From our house, you can walk to the Atlantic Ocean or the Currituck Sound AND to every restaurant, bar or shop your heart desires in Duck. It's the perfect location!

Also, our home is situated on a quiet street where there are many year-round neighbors to keep it quiet and welcoming. Directly across the street from us are empty lots and behind us is a field owned by the Town of Duck can never be built upon so you have quiet and privacy at our home. The neighbors directly to the left and right of our home do not rent out their homes as well to assure even more added privacy.

Great location! Perfect family hangout!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience working with Joelle, she is very responsive and easy to work with. We had 10 people in the house and it was the perfect size for our group--everyone had enough room to spread out, there are plenty of bathrooms so you never felt crowded. We cooked every meal at the house and the kitchen had everything we needed including a grill. We loved the location in the town of Duck and how the house is situated in between the water, loved the walking/bike paths, and the close proximity to the beach. The pool was a huge bonus as it was very hot and humid during our stay. I would recommend this place to others.

A great family week at the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Inn Like Flynn was every bit as comfortable and well-appointed as advertised--maybe better! The house was furnished beautifully and it was big enough, and with a floor plan that allowed everyone a choice of private space or communal gathering. We had beautiful weather and spent lots of time at the ocean beach, a novelty for us midwesterners. The pool and hottub were lovely, but we mostly chose the beach on during our week there. The outdoor shower to clean off the sand was wonderful. Since it was our first time to the Outer Banks, we spent a couple afternoons exploring the area and getting the lay of the land. We enjoyed cooking meals together in the big, modern kitchen. The local fresh seafood market was great. We spent one rainy afternoon snooping around some thrift stores close by. The washer and dryer in the house was really nice, and we had private bathrooms for each of our group--two couples and two singles. There is room for many more people, but we loved every minute of our time with our small group of six adults. the house was clean and very well-maintained and furnished. The owner was in contact by text and email and was extremely responsive to any question or concerns. The house is located on a quiet, private road. The area felt safe and people all seemed friendly. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a perfectly located vacation house in the Outer Banks. Everything was perfect.

From the moment of first contact, Joelle was wonderful to work with and provided so much great information about the home and the Town of Duck. The home was exceptionally clean and super, well stocked! I would say the kitchen is better stocked than mine at home! It was a super easy and quick walk to the beach and to the heart of the town. We enjoyed the magnificent sunsets off of the top deck and the hot tub was the best. If we needed anything, Joelle was right there to answer our questions quickly and happily. We cannot say enough about this beautiful home and vacation at Inn Like Flynn! We have already booked our return back. Thank you so much Flynn family for making this the best vacation ever!

Delightful Fall Getaway

  • 4 of 5

October ended up being a great time to visit the Outer Banks, the weather was perfect and nothing was crowded. We all really enjoyed the hot tub and playing pool, the children even jumped in the outdoor pool a few times even though it was a little cold by this time of year! Loved the proximity to Duck as well as the Sound and the beach. It is also close enough to visit the Corolla lighthouse and Nags Head for the sand dunes and Aquarium, so we really enjoyed the location. The owner was easy to work with!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful for a group who mostly wanted to talk and relax. We very much enjoyed the hot tub and it's only a short walk to the beach. There were a lot of great places to eat very close. The house had an abundance of cooking equipment and dishes. The only thing missing was the dishwasher soap. I would gladly stay there again.

Between the movies, games, pool table, hot tub, pool, basketball goals, you will not be bored! Also - there are PLENTY of beach chairs, toys and boogie boards at your disposal.
