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!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay at this lovely condo! It is as nice and in good shape/clean as described. We stayed with our family of 5 - kids age 7, 4, and 2. It was just right for them but 3 older kids would make the place a bit tight. The evenings on the deck were great - waves, quiet, breezy and cool :) Access to the beach is 2 minutes walk, the pool was always clean and not too busy but enough other families for playmates. Duck seemed like just the right location for access to the main OBX attractions plus enough restaurants, shops, events at the local park, etc.

Wendy was responsive when needed, which wasn't really much at all as all went very smoothly!

Would return to this unit/complex in the future if we end up in OBX again.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in OBX and the condo in Duck was great!

Very clean, everything worked Wendy was easy to work with and always responsive

We could sit on the balcony and hear the waves crashing, see dolphins swimming by in the morning.

Would stay again

Sometimes the expression you get what you pay for is a positive thing!

This is one of the least expensive Outer Banks rentals I was able to find in months of searching. I really wanted to be on the ocean, and the condo fit the bill perfectly. Beach is gorgeous, the communal pool is lovely; and, inside, the condo is exactly as shown.

When we arrived, we were a little taken aback at the condo buildings' exteriors which are, to put it kindly, rode hard and put away wet. Our sense of grim foreboding only grew as we labored up the stairs (there is no elevator). It was thus with great trepidation that we inserted the key into the banged-up unit door which would be much the better for a coat of paint. However, once we got inside, those feelings dissipated, and were replaced with vintage Outer Banks relaxation.

The unit is very clean and neatly arranged, just as depicted in the pictures. The deck overlooking the ocean is wonderful, and there is sufficient seating for four people. Be aware, though, that this is a very small apartment. If you choose to have people sleeping in the bunks, and others sleeping on the couch or its fold out bed, they will have no privacy. The people in the bedroom will be able to close their door, but will have to hope --if they venture forth for a midnight snack or something-- that the those sleeping on the bunks aren't easily awakened.

Heed the owner's admonition that neither towels or sheets are included. There are a few blankets and extra pillows, but you must bring or buy everything else. That is not a complaint, just a reminder. The good news is that there is a huge Walmart, and lots of big and small grocery stores within a few minutes' drive. We had no problem getting everything we needed in very short order.

The location of the condo is absolutely perfect. The town of Duck is so nice, with lots of wonderful restaurants and shops, and beautiful sound and ocean views. It's also very easy to get to places like Jockey's Ridge dunes and Roanoke etc. Worth noting: be prepared to drive slowly. Traffic is pretty backed up quite frequently, because there's really only one main road to go to most places.

While this may not sound like the most enthusiastic of reviews, it really is. We got what we paid for, and were so happy with the place and the setting. I loved sitting on the porch every night and listening to the waves crashing while my kids slept. It was fantastic, and we plan on staying at Colony by the Sea next year, although in a bigger unit because there will be more people in our party.

Great Stay at Ocean Breeze

  • 4 of 5

This condo was perfect for the two of us! It looked as though every room had been recently painted. Kitchen had everything we needed. Very convenient to beach and shops in Duck. The view from the living room and deck, just beautiful. We'll certainly stay here again.
