Nestled in the quaint village of Duck, guests enjoy our condo only feet from the Atlantic's waves. Relax in the community's oceanfront pool and gazebos, enjoy our tennis and volleyball courts, the children's playground and numerous local attractions. The area boasts nationally recognized dining and shopping, golfing, deep sea fishing, eco touring and sightseeing. Enjoy the wild horses of Corolla, the Wright Brothers Monument and 4-wheeling on the beach in many nearby locations. Try your hand at parasailing and hang gliding, and enjoy ocean sunrises, sunsets over the Currituck Sound and the frolicking of dolphins from your private balcony. Community footpaths and bike paths afford you the opportunity to discover the village leisurely, and the opportunity to rent kayaks, canoes and rollerblades give you a chance to discover the Outer Banks like never before! Enjoy the ocean sunrises from your private balcony and relax with the sound of the waves!

Duck Village and Nearby Neighbors: The village of Duck is a quaint resort area with bike and foot paths, ocean and sound access. Located only minutes to the north is Corolla, a wild horse sanctuary with 4 wheel drive allowed on the beach, excellent shopping and dining, a restored lighthouse and many recreational opportunities. Located just to the south is Kill Devil Hills, home of the Wright Brothers' first flight; Nags Head with its famed Jockey's Ridge State Park, and Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands. Other attractions include the NC Aquarium, the Lost Colony, the Elizabethan Gardens and outlet shopping. Nags Head's Gallery Row is home to numerous artisan galleries and studios boasting local and regional works, and more artists keep studios along the quaint streets of Manteo just across the Roanoke Sound. Vineyards to the west in Currituck, and nearby colonial towns offer something for every interest.

A second condo is also available in the same complex! Check us out on Facebook at 'Duck, NC Vacation'

Sports Abound: Whether your interests are enjoying water sports such as swimming, kayaking, deep sea fishing or para sailing, or you more prefer biking, hiking and canoeing, Duck and the surrounding area has it all. A golfer's paradise with the constant addition of nearby courses, the area also boasts opportunities for charter fishing parties, boat and jet ski rental, as well as the children's favorites of putt-putt golfing, go-carting and water park fun. Jockey's Ridge State Park, located on the area's highest sand dunes in Nags Head, features opportunities to learn to 'professionally' fly a kite, and the children are always entertained there with the huge sand castles. Many local rental services offer items such as canoes and kayaks, bicycles for the entire family, and various types of sporting gear. Be sure to pick up the Visitor's Guide at any grocery market when you get to town! They have additional information as well as tons of coupon offers. Ladies, did I mention spa surfing?

Enjoy your stay without breaking the bank!: With most vacation homes renting for thousands of dollars and the availability of only a few hotel rooms nearby, our guests find they can enjoy their vacations without spending a fortune on accommodations. This condo features all the amenities of being at home and includes a beautiful ocean view! A great accommodation for families with small children, single vacationers or couples looking to get away. Off-season rates make this a great location for girls' weekends and R&R getaways. The gulf currents make our beaches user-friendly through all of autumn. Special offers are not reciprocal to previously booked vacations.

About Vicki Powell

When our four children were young, we spent every possible minute at our home in Duck. Now that the kids are grown, we get there a little less frequently, but have invested in two great condos in Colony By the Sea, one of which you are viewing now. Though only one condo is advertised on Homeaway, we have both condos available for rent. We are very active in the OBX community and have made many local friends. Duck has a particularly warm place in our hearts as we love the community feeling that you do not get from other beach locations. Many of our families favorite memories were made on the beach, watching firework exhibitions, taking in a performance in the town park and enjoying a great meal in a local restaurant, all within walking distance to our home. We pride ourselves in offering our renters and guests accommodations that are tended by our family members. Because we have a local home, we are able to be on-site much of the time and get to know our guests and assist with their needs whether they have a medical concern arise, or perhaps just to help them select a restaurant for a wonderful seafood meal! Many of our renters return year after year for the personal service and great value these condos offer.

Vicki Powell purchased this condo in 1996

Why Vicki Powell chose Duck

Our family is delighted to have so many positive reviews on our condos. We work hard to keep our furnishings fresh and attractive, to update and remodel and to take suggestions to heart to make sure guests want to return each year for another great OBX vacation. Colony By the Sea condos are unique in that they each offer an ocean view, are merely a few feet from the beach itself and offer so many amenities just outside the door. From the pool situated on the ocean dunes, to the recreational areas of the complex such as the basketball and tennis courts, kiddie playground and barbecue area on the courtyard, there is much to enjoy that does not exist at other complexes in Duck. Parking is plentiful, areas for guests to clean fish are offered as well as outside showers and bathroom facilities near the pool. Two gazebos flank the boardwalks at the beach and are perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee early in the morning while watching the sunrise, or getting to know other guests. Many families form friendships with other guests and look forward to seeing them year after year. Weddings take place on the beach just below the gazebos, and the wide beaches give guests plenty of room to spread out while enjoying the sun and surf.

Each condo is identically outfitted and equipped. Though small, the condos offer full sized appliances in the kitchens and unique sleeping accommodations for up to six people. The master bedroom suite boasts a queen sized bed and a private bathroom, and a second full sized bathroom is located off the main hallway. The sleeper sofa in the great room hosts a queen sized sleeper and there is a set of bunks in a hallway alcove. These condos well meet the needs of the budget conscious traveler without skimping on little things that make vacations special. Properties that are owner managed (rather than those in rental programs) take the middle man out of the equation, allowing the cost savings to pass on to the guests.

What makes this condo unique

Because our condos are not part of a rental management company's inventory, you are assured to have any concern that arises quickly and appropriately resolved. The savings we realize from managing our own properties are passed on to our guests, making our properties among the best values on the beach!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 (mom, dad, and 13 month-old) from Pennsylvania had a phenomenal week (June 27th - July 4th). The condo was exactly as advertised and the location couldn't have been better; we were a quick bike ride away from the town and we had an amazing view of the ocean. Lastly, the owners of this condo were very cooperative and helpful, which we certainly appreciated. While in the Outer Banks, we visited the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the aquarium on Roanoke, Jockey's Ridge State Park, and the Wright Brothers Monument and Museum. Also, the local fitness center (Barrier Island Fitness in Kitty Hawk) was a great facility and in close proximity to the condo. My husband and I travel around the country and Europe and rarely visit the same place twice, but the Outer Banks is definitely a location we will visit again. Thank you for a fantastic week!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that our condo afforded your family this terrific vacation! We take great effort to ensure client satisfaction and are proud to receive comments such as yours! OBX guests return time after time for the charm and laid back beach atmosphere that is also chocked full of wonderful experiences and things to do. Every season on the Outer Banks offers guests many opportunities to enjoy the beach and the offerings of a coastal getaway - fresh seafood, watersports and relaxation and our area is home to outstanding restaurants, talented local artists and warm southern charm. We look forward to your next visit and invite everyone to share in the OBX experience!

Great vacation despite the rain!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your place and being so accommodating! The condo was spacious, inviting, clean and had what we needed. Close to the beach, great pool (maybe next trip), lovely town, and such a wonderful area to be in. Despite the rain the first few days we made the best of it all. Even in the rain the beach was beautiful! My mom enjoyed herself and I'm so glad she was able to tag along. We visited the aquarium, Bodie light house, and the wild horses. Ate at Blue Point, what great food and Duck Donuts- YUM. I can't tell you enough what a wonderful mother daughter time we all had. The last few days were fabulous. The W.H.A.T tour is must do for visitors in Corolla. I am so thankful that we were able to make this trip and stay in your place. Anyone staying there must get up and catch the sunrise. It's an amazing thing. I know I'll be back again..

Awesome location...on the beach yet close to shops/restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the vacation home. Very clean and had everything you could need for vacation. Very well maintained and had nice furniture. The pool was very clean and nicely sized. Not overcrowded at all. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family. We have (2) young children (ages 3 & 6) and we really enjoyed how close it was to walk to the shops in Duck. We walked every evening to the shops in Duck and never got complaints from the children (so you know it was close by). Wonderful location.

Duck is for Lovers

  • 5 of 5

Maybe it was the ocean waves, or the salty air, or the wild horses, but Duck felt full of love. My fiance and I walked on the beach, caught fish on the pier, chased horses, ate fresh seafood daily, and enjoyed morning coffees on our balcony. Nothing was planned and everything was perfect - we didn't want to leave.

FYI: if you're taking your car ON the beach, make sure to let some air out of your tires and stay inside the tracks. Don't miss out on the wild horse museum - a tiny gem (free!) in nearby Corolla.

First condo

  • 4 of 5

Clean unit, nicely furnished. Large balcony with a marginal ocean view. Nice grounds with pool and yard easy walk to beach. Would be great for people with young kids.

Poor dining options in Duck.

Just Ducky

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us staying at the condo (2 senior adults, our son and 2 grandchildren, ages 14 & 11.) Everyone had a fabulous time! We visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial, and all the lighthouses the Outer Banks had. The kids and their father enjoyed rolling down the largest sand dunes on the east coast at Jockey's Ridge State Park. My husband enjoyed kayaking. I saved a lot of money by cooking. The kitchen was well equipped and I found everything I needed. The beds were comfortable. My favorite thing was going out on the deck after everyone had gone to bed. The ocean view was spectacular, and the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach were relaxing. There were also rabbits and little gray foxes running around the grounds at night. The sunrises and sunsets were lovely, and there were lots of pelicans flying overhead. We did contact the owner about a ceiling light that needed repairing. A maintenance man was at our door within 15 min. and took care of everything. The owner answered all our questions in a timely manner and everything was just as they said it would be. We would definitely stay here again. I would recommend this rental to anyone who can do steps. There are no elevators.

Art and antique lovers find opportunities to discover the new and exciting! Check out Gallery Row, home to local artist studios and galleries. The Currituck Art Show takes place in June, and the Manteo waterfront offers ongoing arts events throughout the year. Our close proximity to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands provide opportunities to discover the travels of Blackbeard the pirate, the history of the local shipwrecks and the move of the Hatteras Lighthouse. Fishermen find one-of-a-kind opportunities to join deep sea parties, fishing tournaments and half-day offshore trips at Oregon Inlet. Numerous tournaments take place throughout the year. Folks from across the US check out the Outer Banks in December, when 'the blues are running.' And nowhere else but the Outer Banks can one find the multitude of chef owned restaurants serving the freshest daily catch in unique and eclectic ways. Elizabeth's is recognized as one of the top 20 restaurants nationally! And did I mention spas?!

Other Activities: eco tours on water
