LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! This location gives you the best of all worlds. It is a three-minute walk to the beach and a seven-minute walk to the heart of Duck. Leave the car parked. You can stroll anywhere including to restaurants, bakeries, ice cream shops, pizza places, the sweet shop, water sport rentals, bike rentals/paths, groceries, clothing shops, yoga, art stores, the book store, unique novelty and gift shops, the Duck boardwalk, the Sound, and THE OCEAN/BEACH. The park/playground and the kayak and paddle board ramp on the sound side is very close too!

Also, The Blue Box is the ideal location for the July 4th Town of Duck parade, which passes right in front of the house. Spend a day at the beach and enjoy ocean breezes from the deck at night. Watch beautiful sunrises over the ocean in the morning and stroll down to the sound front for dinner and take in a spectacular sunset.

ABOUT THE HOME: newly renovated and completely updated beach home that sleeps 6 very comfortably.

Bedroom Master (upstairs): king-sized bed, en suite bathroom, and sliding doors that open onto a sun deck. If you look through the trees from this deck, you can catch a glimpse of the ocean and watch the sun rise as you enjoy the sound of the ocean waves.

Bedroom 2 (entry level, north facing): two comfy, full beds with a window to the quiet backyard.

Bedroom 3 (entry level, south facing): one comfy queen bed and a window for great daylight.

The second full bathroom is also on the entry level and is in the hallway outside these bedrooms.

NOTE: We do NOT supply bed or bath linens. Many OBX vacationers choose to rent these items from a beach rental company.

The living area has a full wall of sliding glass doors that exit onto the wrap-around deck. Lounge on the Adirondack chairs as you listen to the ocean waves. When you are ready for a meal, use the gas grill, charcoal grill, or the completely updated kitchen to prepare something yummy. Eat in the sunny dining area or perhaps on the screened-in porch that sits off the elevated kitchen. And for the times when you don't feel like cooking, you can walk in minutes to any number of local restaurants or call for delivery.

Headed to the beach? Grab the beach chairs, drink cooler, and beach umbrella from the utility room and take a 3-minute stroll to the Christopher Drive private beach entry.

The house also has a large yard, basketball hoop, ring & hook game, a hammock, and plenty of space for kids (or adults) to play in a delightful neighborhood. And, when you are back indoors, you can watch cable or download a movie on one of two flat screen, smart TVs; listen to music from the docking station; connect to the WiFi; play cards or board games; read; and relax!

The evenings at the house are wonderful. In addition to listening to the ocean waves, you can watch the sun make its journey from east to west, while enjoying the serenity of this area that is dotted with green trees. When the sun has set, the quiet night gives way to a brilliant starry sky (and we have a telescope).

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Blue Box during the 4th of July week. We had a great time in Duck. The house is located perfectly between the beach and town. We would love to come back and stay in the Blue Box! Bernadette responded to all my questions and was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you again!

The Blue Box

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, great weather and The Blue Box was perfect. Walking distance to the beach, wonderful restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. The house was perfect for our family of 4 with room to spare. The owners were a pleasure to work with, they returned our questions swiftly and professionally. If you're looking for a home away from home then look no further The Blue Box is waiting.

Seaside treasure close to the beach and town

  • 5 of 5

Loved the blue box. There were many cute aspects to the house, like a hammock and swing beneath the house, lovely porch off the kitchen and nice side deck on the house. Loved how close it was to the beach. Our three year olds did fine walking to it every day. THey had child proofed it a bit with some gates which was nice. Bathrooms were on the smaller side but had everything you needed with lots of hooks to hang things on. I was very impressed with the Blue Box and would definitely stay there again. So close to the quaint town of Duck- right down the street, a 10 minute walk to Duck Donuts or 2 minute drive.
