About M & M 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, we took the plunge and now own WaveHi!, Dune Nest and Dolphin Dawn (all in the same lovely Colony by the Sea). They are just the right size and are our little places to escape to when the pressures of real life get to us. We hope you too will find that peace of mind and sense of rejuvenation that we get each time we come back to Duck. We look forward to sharing it with you! We hope you will select WaveHi! or one of our other condos as your vacation rental and help us with providing great reviews to share with future vacationers.

Why M & M Hayward chose Duck

WaveHi! is located right on the ocean on one of the most beautiful east coast beaches in the U.S. It has the best view for year round beach front enjoyment! Spectacular sunrises and moonrises greet you daily! We have worked hard to provide a completely new, comfortable place to relax with many details we enjoy for our own comfort and wind down time. The town of Duck is a quaint coastal village with super friendly folk and wonderful shopping, dining and many fun things to do. You can rent kayaks, canoes, bikes, tandem bikes, tc. to enjoy the many water activities Duck has to offer. We love it here and come all the time.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite thing about WaveHi! is the oceanfront location and view. When you step out on the deck the sight and sound of the waves is the most magical thing in the world. Lounging on the deck we enjoy watching the sunrise, seeing the dolphins play, and pelicans fly by while sipping our coffee. Evenings bring the colors of the sunset across the eastern Atlantic sky and moonrises that are spectacular. It's a great backdrop for a glass of wine to wind down from a day of total relaxation. Perfect.

Great views and perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our getaway to the Outer Banks and staying at Wave Hi. The updates made to the condo are very nice, and it has a very quaint and modern feel. Plenty of space for the two of us. The location is perfect - very central park of Duck - and your within 10-15 minute walk or 1-2 minute drive from some great places to eat and shop. Roadside Grill and Duck Deli were excellent suggestions. The views are amazing - right on the beach - and yes, we did see dolphins! Perfect place to relax.

Even though the place is non-smoking, it does have an old and subtle smoke smell to it, especially noticeable when you first walk in. Someone had commented on this already, and owners provided feedback that it was in fact a non-smoking place. I appreciate the fact that it's non-smoking, but folks should be aware that there is a lingering smell in case they are really sensitive to it. My wife is sometimes sensitive to it, but this didn't bother her, so it wasn't a deal breaker.

All things considered - a great stay, and we would stay here again!

Furniture & appliances were in excellent shape. Condo was well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be coming back to Wave Hi! It was so easy to stay there because it was well stocked with everything we needed. It was comfortable to either just spend the day watching movies or to sit around talking!

Great view, cute condo

  • 4 of 5

This condo was just as described. It's clean, well-appointed, and has a great view. The location would be great for walking into Duck, but we got snowed in! The only thing keeping me from giving a 5-star review is that it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. I suspect this is not the owner's fault, and they might not have known about it, but it did bother me continually during our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. WaveHi is a non-smoking unit and we hope that our guests will respect both the unit, and more importantly, subsequent guests, when staying there.

What a View!

  • 4 of 5

Oceanfront view that can't be beat! Dolphin sightings daily. End unit optimizes privacy. The unit was updated and kitchen well stocked with plenty of cooking utensils. The reason I only gave it a 4 star was due to the cleanliness of the duvet cover, master bath walls and master bath throw rug. The upper portion of the walls were covered with a visible layer of dust. The duvet cover and rug need to be laundered. Regardless, I would recommend this rental and stay there again.

Our condo is located in the much sought after area of Duck, Outer Banks North Carolina. 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.
