About the property

Oceanfront -1 Bedroom 2 Full Baths Condo - First Floor

Dune Nest is a lovely, comfortable and cozy, newly updated one bedroom two bath condo located just seconds to the beach in Duck, NC on the Outer Banks! Our condo is on the 1st floor with fantastic expansive views of the Atlantic ocean beach and dunes. NEW FLOORING was installed in early 2018. Our ocean front deck is the perfect spot to watch the sunrise over the Atlantic's surf, watch dolphins play and pelicans flying and to idle the day away. Imagine your morning coffee and you on the deck watching the sunrise, listening to the surf, and watching the pelicans flying by as they start their day. Bring your binoculars or use ours for close ups of the dolphins, pelicans, loons, sandpipers, seagulls etc. We have updated our condo unit making it one of the few newly renovated units in the complex. Just check out the photos!

Dune Nest offers a master bedroom with a comfy queen-sized bed, newly updated full baths (unique and super convenient for a family), brand new comfortable queen-sized sofa bed, arm chairs, hallway twin bunk beds, modern kitchen, two flat screen TVs (living room and master bedroom), DVD player/movie library, free WiFi, beach chairs (4) and umbrella, Iphone/Ipad/MP3 player docking stations, coffee maker, hair dryer, new HVAC system, high-end quiet ceiling fans, dining table for 6, keyless entry system, and much more.

Please note our condo is on the first floor of a three story building with stairs and no elevator.

Our beach-- only steps away from our condo -- features coastal dunes, soft creamy sand, nice surf and great beach combing. We have beach chairs and umbrella for your use during your visit.

In addition to our beach front, our condo community has an outdoor pool (unheated), outdoor grills, basketball and tennis courts (bring your balls and rackets), pool side restrooms, oceanfront showers, ocean front gazebos, and coin operated laundry facilities.

We are only a short 15 minute walk to the lovely, historical village of Duck where you can enjoy the lovely shops, buy groceries, eat at great restaurants and cafes, enjoy sound side sunset views by the bar, sip coffee at Duck Cottage Books, rent bikes to ride on the jogging/biking trails, walk the sound-side boardwalk for bird watching and shopping and eating, and rent canoes, kayaks and other water sports equipment.

Bring your binoculars or use ours to bird watch and get great close ups of dolphins in our surf. Superb viewing from our deck!

About Mike and Mary Hayward

We had 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 Dune Nest, WaveHi! and Dolphin Dawn (all in the same lovely Colony by the Sea). Dune Nest is just the right size and is our little place 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 Dune Nest as your vacation rental and help us with providing great reviews to share with future vacationers.

Why Mike and Mary Hayward chose Duck

Dune Nest 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 comfortable place to relax with many details we enjoy for our own comfort and wind down time. The town of Duck is a very walkable, 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, etc., to enjoy the 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. We love it here and come all the time.

What makes this condo unique

All year round our favorite thing about Dune Nest 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 moon rises that are spectacular. It's a great backdrop for a glass of wine to wind down from a day of total relaxation. Perfect.

Fall and winter is also a spectacular time in the Outer Banks. Less visitors mean the pace is slower, quieter and often you can go for long walks on the beach without seeing anyone else. The weather is beautiful and cool with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the heat of the summer still radiating in the ocean and pool. We swam in the Atlantic in mid-October last year and it was great! In addition fishing is great with piers and surf offering you many opportunities to bring home dinner to cook up in Dune Nest's fully fitted kitchen. Don't forget if you are a golfer, there are many courses nearby and you don't even have to have a tee time -- most of the time! For us shoppers, its those 'end of the season' sales that keep me excited and of course all of these activities help you work up an appetite for the many good restaurants that Duck and the nearby towns have open. No reservations needed! As the weather changes it never ceases to amaze us how there are so many more shells on the beach in the fall and winter. You will see evidence of our finds in Dune Nest! We look forward to seeing you anytime of the year!

Wonderful oceanfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great stay! The condo was super clean and well appointed. Had everything we needed and any questions I had the owners answered quickly. We swam in the pool and ocean and took advantage of the adorable town of Duck. We even saw dolphins while swimming in the ocean! Highly recommend this fab ocean front condo!

Very cozy and comfortable....

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dune's nest and it was very comfortable. The view off the front deck is gorgeous and sleeping to the sound of the surf is heavenly. The weather was quite cold so we didn't get to enjoy the beach or the deck as much as we would have liked but that is just Mother Nature...nothing to be done about that. We saw the dolphins and quite a bit of wild life around the condo. Day trips to Currituck and Whaleshead and Kitty Hawk and many great choices for dining, shopping and walking all combined to make it a memorable trip.

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. Bike and walker friendly, 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. Don't forget yoga on the Duck Green in the summer season and in the winter yoga at Duck's Village Yoga studio.

For car trips and sight seeing during rainy days or in the Fall and Winter, you are spoiled for choices: lighthouses, NC aquarium in Manteo, Jeannette's pier, shopping, great eating, 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. Go south for some outlet shopping at Milepost 16 or further south to visit Manteo or coastal light houses. So much to do!
