About the property

Villa 4 Bedroom 3 Baths

Crisp and clean beautifully decorated and wonderfully outfitted for active families, Forever Summer is the perfect family rental with all the comforts of home. Besides the beach, the house has numerous sun and shade decks providing space for everyone to relax and enjoy time on the coast. This oceanfront home is a short bike ride or walk to the Village of Duck which offers unique shopping, dining, coffee houses, bookstores, a boardwalk along the sound, a wonderful park with childrens play area, and live music venues. Plan to refill your cocktail, grill scallops, swing the baby, catch ghost crabs at night, finish that book, take a beach walk under the moonlight, watch the gorgeous sunsets from the Port Trinitie gazebo, take in the sunrise over the ocean in your pajamas from your deck, or fill the beach bucket with shells and sea glass.

The house sleeps 8 with an additional roll out bed in upstairs twin.

1 king, 1 queen, and 2 rooms of twins

About Marshal and Libby

We live in Graham, N.C. which is near Chapel Hill. We fell in love with the outer banks while living in Va. Beach for 30 years. Sneaking away to Duck and Forever Summer has been our restful retreat and great secret and now we hope you discover it and fall in love also.

Marshal and Libby purchased this villa in 2004

Why Marshal and Libby chose Outer Banks

I saw a whale last year during Christmas week while I was sitting in the master bedroom putting on my tennis shoes ...oceanfront...it just doesn't get any better..Last March I saw a mega pod of Dolphins go down the coast...I love the pelicans as they sail up and down the incoming waves...a beautiful sight...be warned you will fall in love.

What makes this villa unique

Being able to bike ride or jog or walk into Duck village is wonderful.

Being on the oceanfront is spectacular. Come and see for yourself.

With our garage we are able to store out of the wind and rain our nice chairs, umbrellas, sand and pool toys, an assortment of boggie boards, fishing gear, rafts, kites, bikes for adults and children, soccer balls, horse shoes, baseballs and gloves, ping-pong equipment, several baby gates, baby stroller and swing, wood for our fireplace and still enough room to pull in and/or unload the car if it is raining.

Fantastic place to hang out with friends

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic ladies week in this house! It was beautifully kept, clean and just as promised. We were unfortunately hit by Tropical Storm Bonnie while there, but the house provided us with a lot of movies and games to play while waiting out the rain. It is a perfect location for a relaxing vacation. The beach is fabulous and the location is perfectly situated in the OBX for any activities you can wish for or think of doing. This is the place I will stay if I return to the Outer Banks!

Owner's Response: We try to make Forever Summer a home we would love to be in a rainstorm or a snowstorm...books, movies, games just something for everyone. We have wood for fires in fireplace in the winter. We have covered areas out of the rain for children to play checkers or ping pong or dig in the sand...Forever Summer is the place to make memories.

this is the place to unwind and forget about work

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is situated on the beach. You can watch the sunrise from the third floor. I was able to take numerous pictures of sunrises that were spectacular.. Its only a 3 minute walk to the beach. The sleeping accommodations support four bedrooms not to mention the couch in the living room if needed. Restaurants are only a 10-15 minute drive away. A pool is available within 400yds if desired. The beach house setup is spectacular for a family wanting to get away. It has all the amenities that make for a fantastic vacation. There are bikes, fishing rods and other things that make your stay fantastic. If your looking for a good time at the beach this is the place to stay. Not to mention the numerous sea shells my granddaughter was able to accumulate.

Forever Summer is the place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house right on the dunes and beach of Duck. This home is located north of the town of Duck in a quiet neighborhood, with great access to everything. My husband, son and I stayed here, but it is perfect for a larger family with 4 bedrooms which sleep 8. The large kitchen has everything you could possibly need and is perfect for cooking for your family. There is a large dining room as well for everyone to eat together. But best of all was sitting on one of the decks and listening to and watching the ocean. In addition, this home is very clean, well maintained and spacious. This home has everything you need for a relaxing, carefree vacation. The owners are very friendly and great to work with. I highly recommend Forever Summer.

Owner's Response: Watching what is happening at the oceanfront is fascinating. Last night we watched the moon come up over the water. Seeing the waves coming into shore with moonlight was fascinating. This morning we watched the sun break the horizon creating reds and oranges and blues just glorious. I am so glad Lorna and her family enjoy the action on the OCEANFRONT. There is a chair waiting for you.

Review for October, 2014

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Forever Summer October, 2014. What an awesome place to stay. Not enough could be said about the cleanliness, extremely clean, the house was wonderful, the kitchen had everything you needed in order to cook a meal just like you were at home. Tons of entertainment for the kids, movies of all types. Shopping was great, convenient to everywhere. And the fishing......my husband loved it! He was catching them "two at a time". The owners were extremely focused on making sure everything was the perfect place to stay! WE WILL GO BACK!!! I highly recommend it!
