About the property

1BR, 2 BA Oceanview Vacation Rental Duck, North Carolina USA

Whether you like to watch the sun rise over the ocean or gaze at the moon and stars, you can do it with sand under your feet, or from your private balcony, when you stay at Ocean Breeze at Colony by the Sea. You are just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean, relaxation and fun!

What does Ocean Breeze have to offer you? First, let’s start with location, location, location! Ocean Breeze has ocean views from your private balcony and is a short walk to the beach, literally two minutes--we timed it, but no rush—you are on beach time and the ocean will always be there to greet you! This one-bedroom, two bath, cozy condo is great for small families, and is located in the Colony by the Sea Condominium Community, in the heart of Duck, North Carolina.

In addition to the perfect location, Ocean Breeze is an updated condo with a beach chic look. Ocean Breeze boasts a master bedroom, with a king size bed and private bathroom. A bunkbed alcove with an ocean view is located in the hall and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. Amenities include wireless internet access, multiple flatscreen TVs, DVD players with a drawer full of DVDs, and games and puzzles galore. Breathtaking views from two private balconies with comfortable deck furniture are yours to enjoy as well.

The pool opens in May and closes in October. There are numerous grilling stations located on the property, as well as picnic tables so you can cook out and have a pool party! There is also plenty of grassy space too for a game of football or frisbee while the stakes are on the grille. Guests of all ages enjoy the oceanfront pool, tennis courts, playground, outside showers, dune-top gazebos, and basketball court.

Convenience is also key at Ocean Breeze. We are fully stocked with pots, pans, cooking, and serving utensils so you can cook up a storm if that is your desire. You are also within walking distance of the village of Duck—with great shopping and great eating!! Tommy’s Market and Winks are close but more importantly, the ice cream and donut shops are close by too!

Ocean Breeze offers easy accessibility and is located on the first floor of the building, requiring guest to climb one flight of stairs to reach the front door (no elevator access). There is a coin operated laundry facility located on the ground level of each building.

Guest supply their own bed linens and towels. Referrals to a rental company who deliver and pick up, provided upon request.

About L.R.

We live in Northern Virginia and I have to give credit to my husband for finding this wonder place we call our home away from home. He introduced me to the Outer Banks years ago and we’ve been coming down for wonderful vacations ever since…

We've had great get-away-weekends here in Duck as well as big family vacations with the kids, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, friends...everyone. The Outer Banks and Duck have so much to offer couples and families--and we have definitely taken advantage of that!

I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and still bleed Black and Gold—Go Steelers, Go Pens, Go Pirates!! The man of the house is from Northern Virginia and is a huge Caps, Redskins and Nationals fan.

That's the basics about us. We hope you will come and enjoy all we find so wonderful with the Outer Banks!

L.R. purchased this condo in 2012

Why L.R. chose Outer Banks

Oh my, the first time we saw this beach condo we fell in love!

Our first thought...this is what coming to the beach is all about--ocean views, comfortable space, a great deck and the Village of Duck right up the street.

Our second thought...we get these great ocean views from the first floor...NO lugging our stuff up all those steps!! Hooray!!!

What makes this condo unique

The best benefit--you are steps away from the ocean! Whether you like to watch the sun rise or gaze at the moon and stars, you can do it with the sand under your feet because you are just steps away.

Second benefit...the views...whether you are walking out your front door, sitting on your deck or looking out the windows...you can see the Atlantic Ocean.

Third benefit...this beach condo was just refurbished in January 2013 to include a brand new kitchen, brand new flooring throughout the entire space, brand new living room furniture, brand new KING size bed, an two new updated bathrooms.

Fourth benefit...you are walking distance to the Village of Duck...or if you want to bring your bikes...there are bike lanes for you as well.

Fifth benefit...All this from the 1st floor!

Sixth benefit...All the other benefits of an Outer Banks Beach Condo that we don't have room to list!!

Loved the decor and location! So convenient! The ocean is right there and walking distance to the boardwalk, shopping and restaurants. Hopefully, the outdated complex and grounds will catch up soon to the inside.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This condo is ideally located. It is only a hundred yards to walk over the dunes and be on the beach and only about 1/3 mile or 10 minute walk to the north end of the Duck boardwalk. Duck offers several good places to eat, the boardwalk, sunrises over the Atlantic and sunsets over the sound. It is only about a 30 minute drive to the activities on the north end of the Outer Banks and about 20 minute drive to Kitty Hawk and Jockey Ridge State Park and about an hour from Haderas. The condo is well furnished and clean. Note that the contract specifies no linens, paper products or other supplies are provided. The owners were very helpful in offering restaurant suggestions. The condo is code entry. So getting in was very easy. The only negative and the reason for a 4 versus 5 star rating is that from the inside the condo, there really isn't an ocean view. By standing directly in front of the deck door, one can get a very narrow glimpse of the water on the other side of the dunes. There's nothing the owners can do about this. It probably would not have been an issue except that the week we spent there the highs were in the 30s and 40s (about 20 degrees below the previous week an below normal), with 30+ mph winds and raining. So, because we could not really walk along the beach or even sit on the deck, it would have been nice to have been able to see the ocean from the condo. Something to consider if booking in the winter.

Great Location for a Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in February. The condo was clean and cozy. The kitchen was well stocked with all the basics. The bed was comfortable. I was able to see the sunrise from the deck, and was on the beach in literally two minutes. It was perfect for two. Can't wait to go back!

Ocean Breeze

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Breeze was a fantastic winter getaway spot. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Especially enjoyed the oceans views. The only thing that might need attention was the hall toilet. Sometimes the flapper got stuck. Would like to visit again in the spring. Barbara

Christmas Time in Duck

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a marvelous Christmas extended weekend in Duck. Our condo was clean and very well appointed. The owners were attentive and friendly in their communication. We felt right at home in their place. Because of it being Christmas weekend, things were quiet and peaceful...we were even able to hear the waves from our bedroom (with the windows closed!). A two minute walk to the Atlantic topped everything off. The restaurant, Cravings, right in the main part of Duck, was a favorite place for us...excellent seafood and service. Wonderful time all the way around. We're already talking about making this a family Christmas tradition. The ad that drew us there was accurate.
