Get the best of all worlds on the Outer Banks in this five-bedroom/three-full-bath getaway. Enjoy majestic treetop views of the canal and marine forest — with abundant wildlife and birds. The beach house is off of the beaten trail atop one of the largest dunes in the OBX. No traffic, no crowds, lots of Mother Nature.

      We are located in Southern Shores, a shore to sound community with a broad range of amenities, including marinas and boat launch areas, tennis and playgrounds for the kids. A quite 10-15 minute walk to a private guarded beach or drive 2 minutes to ample beach parking. Tennis courts in a gorgeous pine setting 200 yrds from the house. Kayak in mils of canals right from the backyard. The town of Duck is 1.5 miles by drive or bikepath. Great location for biking, rollerblading or letting the kids play in the neighborhood. Access to all water sports rentals in Duck. Golf, hang gliding, parasailing, surfing, the works! Grocery stores and shopping in the great boutiques of Duck within a 5 minute drive.

      Relax in the large screened in porch overlooking the lush natural setting. The views from the two master bedroom decks and house-top “eagle’s-nest” deck offer some of the best views in the OBX area. The first-level rec room with an adjacent kids bedroom with TV/DVD and full bathroom provides separate space for the younger crowd. 2 kayaks come free with the rental and can be launched from your own backyard dock. The canals are quiet and perfect for short or long outings. Also bring your fishing rods for the great fishing and binoculars for bird watching. This is truly a rare spot on the Outer Banks!
