I had a great time in July. We have stayed a few times over the years. Once again, Nancy & Donna ensured that our stay at Advice 5¢ was enjoyable and relaxing. It feels like home; delicious homemade breakfasts, funs chats, cozy bright rooms and common areas and plenty of books to read and enjoy at the beach. The location is ideal; close to the beach and the new boardwalk and all the cute shops in Duck. I even got to go running with Nancy, which was a blast!! I will recommend Advice 5¢to everyone who goes to the Outer Banks. Barbara R.

Advice 5c has everything you could wish for - great hospitality, wonderful breakfasts, amazing views of the ocean and the sound; it is spotlessly clean and we have had many wonderful vacations based at this B & B.

We have our own balcony, overlooking the dunes. We can walk to the ocean or to the sound. We have come to know Duck and to hold Advice 5 cents in our hearts as our own special place to cool our jets in the middle of a busy summer.

Being a seasoned traveller, I found Advice 5 cents to be a great discovery . The location is perfect-close to sea and sound and charming shops. The B&B was exceptionally clean, the made from scratch baked goods delectable and the innkeeper was delightful.

Where would we be without Advice 5¢...? Once again, Nancy & Donna ensured that our stay at Advice 5¢ was an enjoyable and relaxing escape from the everyday Northern Virginia rat race. We are always made to feel so at home, our needs are always met, and advice is always available when requested, for a nickel of course. From unique breakfasts, to provided towels and chairs for the short walk down to the beach, to in home massages...Advice 5¢ is ever so accommodating. When we visit, we are always reminded what life is all about. Matt & Meahgen Fargo - Haymarket, VA

Traveling from points north: The major access to the Outer Banks from northern points is via Interstates 95 and 64 to Norfolk, then US 168 and 158 from Norfolk to the Wright Memorial Bridge across the Currituck Sound. Once on the Outer Banks: From US 158, take NC Highway 12 (north) to Duck. (Duck is about 5 miles north of the intersection of US 158 and NC 12.)
