About Wendy Cox

We are a family of 3 that loves to travel, sports, and spend time at the beach. This is the perfect condo for our family and we love Colony by the Sea and the town of Duck.

Wendy Cox purchased this condo in 2007

Why Wendy Cox chose Outer Banks

You will love this condo and this location. There is so much and yet it is not too commercialized. We think it is the perfect balance for a great vacation. The condo, location, beach, pool, sound, shopping, and restaurants make this an ideal vacation.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is on the end of building B which gives you the views that the interior units do not have. It is well maintained and we have several families that return year after year.

Lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

Just left this morning and despite a couple of rainy days had an incredible time. This unit is spacious, clean and updated. The views are great from the back deck entrance and also from the spacious front covered deck. Had absolutely no issues with the condo and would recommend to anyone! Thanks Wendy for sharing it.

Ocean Dream

  • 4 of 5

The stay at Ocean Dream was generally pleasant. Unfortunately, Duck had recently been impacted by the hurricane so there were a lot of bugs and rubbish in the area. The 3rd level experienced some damage and workers were working during our stay which caused a lot of debris and treachery as we maneuvered the 4 flights of steps too and fro.

The beach views were wonderful and exactly as described in the pictures.

It was a pleasure working with Wendy Cox the owner of the unit. She was extremely responsive and very professional.

The unit is small and limited privacy for anyone who is in the hallway on the bunks or on the pullout sofa but would think ideal for a small family. The bedroom has a queen bed which was quite comfortable. However, the bunk beds were not. Probably best for a child as children can sleep anywhere! :-) I spent the first two nights on it and was miserable.

I knew that I had to bring my own linens which was fine but did not know I needed to bring toilet paper and was disappointed that after arriving 5 hours late (car broke down on the way down) that there was no vacation and being in a unfamiliar town that time of night and trying to find toilet paper was not easy. Had I known, it would have been better.

Overall the unit was generally clean but could be better. Not sure if the last visitors had a dog or cat but there was an enormous amount of dust around the footstools and then my 17 month old knocked something under the couch and I had to move the entire couch to retrieve the item and it was DISGUSTING. It looked like no one had ever pulled the couch to clean under it there was spoiled food, trash, etc. and I spent a good 30 minutes cleaning behind and up under the couch.

The kitchen was well stocked though some of the pots/pans need to be replaced. The refrigerator, microwave, and oven look new and were very clean and well kept. The bathrooms were clean as well.

We appreciate the opportunity to stay at Ocean Dream.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had in Ocean Dream. Exactly as pictured and described, Wendy was responsive with all my questions, the grounds and pool were maintained and clean, there were plenty of loungers by the pool, and the location!... the beach was a two minute walk out the front door. And, the beach was gorgeous! Cleanest beach we could remember in a long time (and, we are serious beach people)...good waves for boogie boarding, soft sand for building castles and long stretches for walking. We brought our bikes (but, you could also rent in town) and biked the two minutes to downtown Duck where there are tons of restaurants and shops. There are also plenty of other attractions (i.e. Currituck Beach Lighthouse and Corolla) and restaurants (we loved Steamers and The Lifesaving Station) nearby.

The unit had plenty of room for our family of four with a queen bed and private bathroom for me and my husband, and bunks and their own bath for my kids (8 and 11) right outside our bedroom door. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need...completely redone and clean, there are plenty of board games and books for both kids and adults, the TV and DVD player worked well, and the balcony was large, shaded, had plenty of seating and the view was outstanding.

Rent this place! You won't be sorry.

Lovely condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Colony By the Sea for the second time. This was our first time in Wendy's unit and we enjoyed it very much. It is a bit larger than the other one bedroom we stayed in- perhaps because it is an end unit. It is also very nicely decorated. We would certainly consider staying there again in the future.

So impressed!

  • 5 of 5

For the money we paid we could not have had a better stay on the Outer Banks. We will certainly be coming back. Wendy's apartment has ocean views from the dining area, living room, entrance and deck.... The apartment is small but works perfectly for a couple with one or 2 small children. The deck is considerably large for the size of the apartment. We had dinner and breakfast on the deck everyday. The apartment is nicely decorated. The walk to the beach is a breeze. There is also a communal bathroom near the pool, so we didn't have to worry about that when going to the beach with a 3 year old. You can also walk to the boardwalk (10-15 minutes) where you can find really nice restaurants and stores. If you are used to renting vacation homes via homeaway or other apps, you know that homes are usually stocked with plenty of towels, sheets, toilet paper, paper towel, trash bags, handsoap...... we were surprised to find none of that when we arrived late at night. It was some of an inconvenience at first, but after a trip to the store the next day we were all set. So, just keep that in mind when you are packing and you'll be sure to have a very nice stay.
