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 Duck

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!!

This is by far the nicest condo I have stayed in at Colony by the Sea! I love the location and the comfort of this freshly updated condo. I will plan to return again next year and l plan on reserving it early.

Lynn Rae was available to answer my questions if needed.

Lovely and relaxing stay.

Perfect location when just need a small place

  • 4 of 5

Ocean Breeze is situated in a great location. The condo is indeed a very short walk to the beach and pool. The kids loved having both swim options available. We had 2 adults and 4 kids. We all fit fine.. just a little tight in the morning when the sofa bed sleepers slept in! With our kids getting too tall, too quickly, we will probably not be able to use the bunks next year. That said, I think a perfect size for a couple retreat, wanting OBX beach front and not going with a group for a house. This was our first year in Duck. We normally stay in Corolla. We are now Duck converts! Loved being very close to all the shops and restaurants! The unit was nice and had all the basics. My recommendation would bring your favorite cooking utensils, chef knives and pan (I am picky on these things) and your own pillow if you have the room in your car! Overall highly recommend if you need a small place and need the beach close to your front door.

So much to do so little time

  • 5 of 5

The condo is even better than the pictures! We really enjoyed our stay. A couple of great places to eat are the Paper Canoe north of the condo and Aqua in the heart of Duck, and the Mexican restaurant with picnic tables on the boardwalk, can't remember the name but good food with a great sunset view! We went on a fan boat tour out of Mateo, toured the Whalehead and the Corolla lighthouse which can be done in one day and took a safari through Corova and saw the Spanish mustangs! The Wright Brother museum was educational but don't do it on a hot day!! No shade or shelter and unfortunately the inside museum was closed for renovation! There was more to do but ran out of time! The beach was perfect for our down days!

Beach was not crowded at all. Ocean was surprisingly freezing . Condo was nice. No complaints other than the traffic issues on arrival / exit day for outer banks in general
