About Yvonne Scott

Dear Guests - Thank you for considering our home for your vacation! My name is Yvonne Scott and my husband's name is Stan. We have two children, ages 19 and 15. We live in Fairfax County in Northern Virginia. I work full time in the software industry but also have a background in real estate. Stan owns an electrical contracting business. We all love the Outer Banks area as we really enjoy boating and being on the water. As a family we also enjoy skiing too.

Yvonne Scott purchased this house in 2009

Why Yvonne Scott chose Colington Harbour

Stan and I have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for almost 30 years now. We discovered Colington Harbour back in 2005 afer we purchased our Waverunner jet skis. We wanted to bring our jet skis on vacation with us and we discovered Colington Harbour is the perfect neighborhood where you can rent an affordable home and have your own dock. We also really enjoy fishing and crabbing. Being on the water away from the beach crowds is very relaxing but yet it's close enough to visit the beach attractions and restaurants. For several years we rented homes in Colington for our annual summer vacation. After a few years and a soft real estate market we decide to invest in a second home property. One day hope to retire at our home.

Open & Spacious

  • 5 of 5

All the items previously said are true.

Other notes:

1) Even if you are not going to use the kayaks, please check the inventory. We arrived and did not check until we were getting ready to use them.

Someone had taken two of the adult vests. This left us short of usable vests. The two have since been replaced, but please check.

2) The dishes are painted and will get very hot in the microwave. Please note when grabbing them.

3) If you are blind like me, and you need to turn the sound up or down on the tv, it is the 4th button from the left on the sound box.

4) The moon is very visible out the back side of the house.

The house is open and airy and it is nice to sit underneath the deck when it is raining.

5) This is the first house that we have been to that has a very quiet dishwasher. Nice to have when near the living room.

6) The bunk bed says full sheets, but the mattress is very deep and takes a queen size sheet, just for your awareness.

This is a quiet place and very relaxing.

Collingtons pizza is very good! Highly recommend it.

Excellent stay at Sunset OBX!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a 2-week dream vacation in the Outer Banks! The Scott's are top of the line! Our family enjoyed the home which has everything you need plus more. We used the kayaks, crab pots, grill, boat dock, and all areas of the home, which provided more than enough space. Our family spent time at the community pool, played tennis, launched our boat with ease, and enjoyed the local diners. We ventured out to enjoy the ATV tours in corolla where we saw wild horses, went 4-wheeling on Corolla Beach, went jet skiing in Nags Head, shopping and much more. We always felt right at home when returning back to Sunset OBX! If you are looking for a fun relaxing time in OBX look no more because this home has everything you need!!

Excellent inlet front house!! Very clean with lots of room!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 adults and 3 children aging from 1-18 all had a great time at Sunset Escape. The house has plenty of room and is beautifully decorated for comfort and relaxation. The den & master bedroom have sliding glass doors that over look the waterway for amazing views. The house was extremely clean with all of the amenities to make our vacation great. One of our favorite activities was "crabbing" on the pier at night with strings. The little ones had a blast catching small crabs & watching them scurry back into the water. This home made our vacation in the OBX an even more special event!!

Clean, beautiful water-accessible home

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long vacation here was absolutely wonderful. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and even left a welcome package when we arrived. The house was extremely clean, spacious & perfect for a large family. There were several places to relax outdoors and the backyard was perfect for playing games. We were impressed and would love to return in the near future.

Charming and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect! Very quiet and peaceful. The house was more than what just my wife and I needed. Well maintained, very clean and very spacious. The description says it all. The location was perfect, a short drive to the main highway and centrally located on the Outer Banks made all our sightseeing easily accessible.

The owners were easily reached and more than accommodating for any of our needs.

My wife and I will be back and we highly recommend staying here to anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay on vacation in the Outer Banks.
