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 23 and 20. 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.

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 after 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 we knew we wanted to invest in a second home property in Colington Harbour. One day hope to retire at our home.

Beautiful view, peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well kept, We had a blast. The water view is pretty and peaceful. The kids caught many different fish and crab after crab! The kayaks were fun, and we rented paddle boards as suggested on ad. Good dock for the boat and even learned how to play tiki toss and bought one for home! We had all the necessary dishes, blender, etc. Thank you for sharing your home.

Nice quiet location. House was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lovely home with my four grandchildren ages ranging from 14-18. They each had a room and one used the futon bean bag in the living room so he could play Xbox on the large screen TV.

We used the kayaks to go fishing and just relax.

The location was perfect because I wanted to be away from the main stream of vacationers along the ocean side in.

The home had everything we needed, with plenty of space.

I would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to other families.

Beautiful vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This home is even more fantastic and beautiful than the pictures indicate. The house is breathtaking and immaculate and the location is perfect. Minutes away from the beach, shopping, dining, and anything else you might need. There is a new super market about ten minutes away that carries everything you might need. In a word, PERFECT.

Thanks so much!
