Great beach vacation at a great beach house!
Our family, two adults and two young adults, at the time ages 19 and 22, stayed at Jessica’s Dune in Duck, N.C. for a week in August 2009. We had a wonderful time! We loved the property, situated right down the street from the spectacular ocean with great views from the deck. Everything was fine and we had no complaints. Things were clean and the house was well stocked with whatever we needed. I had a nice conversation with the owner prior to our visit and he was most welcoming. Sun Realty had everything ready when we arrived and there were no glitches. There was also plenty to do in the area from going out to dinner, sightseeing, golfing, or renting a catamaran….all of which we did. In addition, having some well-deserved, and necessary, “R and R” time at the beach with the family was priceless. This home was a great beach house to stay at, with plenty of room for all of us. Memories of sitting on the deck, enjoying appetizers and drinks after a beautiful beach day makes me want to go back right now! We had a great beach vacation at a great beach house. We would highly recommend Jessica’s Dune to anyone. Someday we certainly hope to re-visit:)
Quiet and Comfortable
We have rented numerous vacation homes over the years and this was one of the better ones. It was very comfortable, clean, and appeared well-maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and orderly, the beds were comfortable, and the living area was spacious. (Even our bird, that we brought along, seemed to enjoy himself.) The only problem we experienced when we arrived was that a screen that had been blown out by the wind, which we easily put back. The views of sunsets were spectacular, and it is an easy walk to the beach. In short, our group had a wonderful time at Jessica's Dune and we would definitely consider staying there again when we are in the OBX area.
It was a nice house, too far to the beach excess, We found maggots and had to call to get some one to take care of this. it was taken care of that day but it riuned the rast of the week for us.
Loved Jessica's Dune!
My stay at Jessica's Dune was wonderful. The bad weather stayed away until the last day of vacation. My two small children (Ages 2 and 7), loved staying at the house, it has beautiful views. On one side is the sound and the other side(down the street) is the beach. We crossed the street to go to the sound where the kids could play on the beach and walked down the street to the ocean and another beach.
The house was exactly what I was looking for. I needed something affordable, I love the outer banks, and my children are great little travelers, but my husband and I are in education and have to budget carefully. We were able to get away, a place near the beach, with a hot tub! The house is not a brand new house and is not beach front property, but it is priced accordingly and has everything needed for us to cook at the house. (Going out to eat with two little kids is not as much fun as it sounds.)
We could easily ride our bikes into Duck on the bike path. Very convenient to the wonderful town of Duck. The Outer Banks is my favorite beach in N.C. and my favorite thing to do is go to Jockey's Ridge--don't miss it.
Beautiful home-Perfect Location-Gorgeous Sunsets
I have stayed with my wife and our two 2 year olds for two weeks at Jessica's Dune and we had a phantastic experience. The house was in perfect condition, clean, homy and inviting, the new playroom a joy. The house is literally only steps from the beach, which makes it extremely convenient, particularly with little kids. The late afternoons/evenings on the big wrap around veranda provided an unbelievable unobstructed view on the sound and the spectacular sunset, which became a family event every night. We also had my in-laws visiting us for 5 days and the house was more than spacious enough to accommodate all of us. The location, a mile from Duck and just a few miles from Corolla, is as convenient as one can imagine. Lastly, Jay, the owner, greeted us by welcome call when we arrived and made sure we knew we could always reach him should we need anything. The only thing we feel could be improved would have been to get a better bbq than the one installed and move it for safty reasons to the front of the house. but, that being the biggest issue, I can only wholeheartedly recommend this property.

My family and I have rented a home in the Outer Banks many times. Our stay at Jessica's Dune last summer was exceptional. The view and breezes from the deck were spectacular. The beds were very comfortable. The overall feel of the house was cozy and inviting. I highly recommend renting this house!

- “Jessica’s Dune” is our second home, NOT merely a rental property. We believe that the difference in quality and appearance is immediately apparent. The house is in perfect condition and immaculately clean. The home has three bedrooms, all on the top floor. The master bedroom is very large, has a king-size bed, a walk-in closet, a view of Currituck Sound and a private bath with two sinks and a separate area for the toilet and shower/tub. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed and a large closet. The third bedroom has two single beds and a bunk set with another walk-in closet. These two bedrooms share a full bathroom in the hallway. There is also a half-bathroom downstairs. The entire upstairs is pecan-paneled and carpeted. The downstairs floor plan is as follows: There is a fully equipped, galley kitchen with a breakfast bar and adjoining pantry. A large dining area with sliders leads to the screened porch where you'll find a picnic table for outdoor dining. The main living area has a large, leather couch and a matching overstuffed chair grouped around a cozy fireplace. The entire main level has fragrant juniper wainscoting and hardwood floors covered by Oriental rugs. Three 6- foot sliders on the West and North side of the living room provide an unparalleled view of the Sound and the sunsets and provide access to the wraparound deck. The 6-person hot-tub is sunken into the deck on the West side. Watch the sunset from the tub with a nice glass of wine and relax! The house is quite high up on a natural sand dune so this makes the deck VERY private. A large recreation room with a wet bar and full bath on the ground floor was just added for 2010. The house is completely equipped: Central air-conditioning and heat, outdoor shower, washer and dryer, microwave oven, icemaker, dishwasher, electric cooktop and convection oven, small appliances, pots, pans, dinnerware, flatware, wine glasses, fireplace, 2 HDTV's, VCR, DVD, Wi-Fi and a CD/cassette-stereo system. An in-ground charcoal grill outside near the kitchen is provided for barbecuing. Linens are provided free of charge. The only items that are not included are towels and paper products. However, the towels can be provided for a nominal, additional charge. We do provide blankets, bedspreads, mattress covers, and pillows.
