Welcome to our Duck Vacation beach house! We have been so fortunate to have more than 65% of our guests come back year after year. That says a lot!! We pride ourselves in making sure the house is updated and refreshed for each season!! This is not just a 'rental'. We enjoy the house in the off season, so it get's much attention and care.

Colony By the Sea offers amenities including a large seaside pool, tennis, basketball, etc.

Here you'll find a well maintained, well equipped comfortable property that is ready for your beach vacation. 4 bedrooms (3 queen, 2 twin) and 2 baths are located on the first floor. Our home can sleep up to 8 . The great room, kitchen and dining room are located on the 2nd floor. The spa is located on a private deck on the ground floor along with an outdoor shower and recently remodeled laundry room. Wireless internet is also provided.

About Brenda Campbell

I am an Real Estate Agent in Katy, TX. I try my best to think of all the 'little' items that make a vacation the best, like supplying sand chairs, umbrella's, having a well appointed kitchen etc. The number of repeat guests has been awesome! They take care of the house as if it was there own. Year after year I am amazed as how wonderful these folks take care of our house.

Brenda Campbell purchased this house in 1996

Why Brenda Campbell chose Outer Banks

We love the Outer Banks (been vacationing here for 25 years), but Duck is the best location! Easy walk to the charming village with great shops and wonderful places to dine. If it's a movie or mini golf you want, it's just a short drive up the highway. Then head back home to the relaxing area and away from the craziness up the road! Beaches are uncrowded and clean. Duck is also a very family oriented spot.

What makes this house unique

We call our home "My Happy Place". It feels like home not a house. We are located in one of Duck's most popular communities "Colony By The Sea". Private parking at the beach. No public access to the beach. Children can ride bikes, play tennis, playground and basketball courts. Our pictures are recent and we keep our home in excellent condition.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home was perfect for our family. It was an easy walk through the dunes to the beach and community pool. Another easy walk to dining and restaurants. The home was well maintained and very clean. We cooked several meals in the well stocked kitchen. We loved sitting on the deck and watching wildlife in the dunes! A nightly hot tub dip was also a nightly must do! I would definitely recommend this home for a vacation in Duck!

Wonderful! Home away from away!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well maintained. This was my family's second stay at this home. The kitchen is well stocked and we enjoyed having many meals at home. The hot tub was excellent and clean. We got a lot of use out of the outdoor grill. Beds were comfy! We enjoyed an easy walk to the beach. We also enjoyed the parking near the beach to drop off all the beach gear. Additionally, it was an equally easy walk to Duck boardwalk to shop, get ice cream, watch the sunset.

Indeed a Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

This property is a walk away from the beach and from Duck, NC. In the evenings, we played dominos and worked on jigsaw puzzles. The beach house is tucked into a beachfront hamlet with paved roads and little traffic. We walked to the beach in the morning and at night and could sit on the deck and hear the ocean roar. Duck, NC is a beautifully quaint beach resort with a super coffee/book shop (spent lots of time there) and many unique local restaurants. We kayaked and chased wild horses on the beach (local tour). There are many choices of thing to do in the area. We'll certainly return to My Happy Place.

Our Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Family Home! Pictures really show how well cared for this home is. We enjoyed inside and outside dining. Step out your front door and you are steps away from the beautiful beach or steps away from shopping and great restaurants. Duck is a family fun town. We will be returning guests. Glad we stayed at your "Happy Place"

Duck, NC Beach House

My family has rented this house for the past 12+ years. We love it. Each year we cannot wait to return to see how it has been improved. The location is perfect. The town of Duck is perfect.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a few days reprieve and decided on a weekend away in the Outer Banks. She used to come to Corolla as a child so we looked there at first, but were so lucky to find this gem instead! Duck in the spring is simply fantastic and uncrowded; everything we wanted in our retreat. The house, in a word, perfect. Perfect size, perfect location, perfect amenities, perfectly furnished and stocked.

Being that it was just two of us, we had our choice of the four bedrooms. My goal for the weekend was not to be relegated to the room with two double beds. ;-) I think the house could get crowded with too many people, but it felt like a great size for groups up to 6. The upstairs was homey and beachy and set the tone for the weekend. The exposed beams really gave a great feel to the great room. The kitchen had everything we needed from the coffee maker to some great pans and a sharp knife which helped immensely preparing blackened Ahi with a tomato-onion relish. The hot tub was an added bonus and not something to which we normally have access: we took advantage of time to soak our cares away. (Which offset the 45 degree ocean quite nicely, but that's March in the mid-Atlantic for you :-) )

The location of the house gave us quick access to everything we wanted to do. We could easily walk to the beach for morning sunrises, trying not to disturb the deer which we saw each day, and everything in Duck was less than a mile walk down the boardwalk. We never had to fire up the car once we arrived - we simply walked to get mid-morning coffee (at Treehouse Coffee!), lunch (Cravings), groceries (Tommy's Market, with fabulous cookies), and dinner (EASTSIDE!!!!). We're both pretty active, so we bicycled up to Corolla one day, and had great running routes down into Southern Shores each day.

Working with the owners was fantastic - they could not have been more helpful. If you're lucky enough to find availability that matches your schedule, this house will not disappoint!

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to visit. The town of Duck, North Carolina is delightful, the beach is great, sightseeing and so much more. The house we stayed in is cheerful and comfortable. It was a perfect vacation and I definitely will be back again.

Car: necessary

Just about everything you need is a short walk into town. We love walking in the mornings to Duck Donut. They have the best donuts in the world. We love also going to The Cantina for Mexican Food, it over looks the Sound and Roadside Bar & Grill serves great sea food and other local favorites. Tons of restaurants and shopping.
