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 Spacious Home
We enjoyed our stay. The ample living space with high end comfortable furniture provided a lot of comfort during our stay. We enjoyed morning coffee on the back deck. The kitchen was very well stocked. Clean and very comfortable. Lovely quiet neighborhood, too. Easy drive to highway.
We absolutely loved everything about this home! It was perfect for our much needed getaway. We would definitely stay here again. Yvonne is easy to get in touch with and very helpful!
Great place great people to work with
Extremely satisfied had a good time
Perfect family vacation
The house was absolutely wonderful. We had so much fun and will be coming back next year and the years following
Very easy communication with the owner. The house was in excellent shape and was perfect for our family.
This was our second year vacationing here. Sunset Escape feels like home away from home. The house is comfortable and nicely decorated. My kids love jumping/swimming off of the dock, kayaking to the community sound beach, and catching crabs! The location is perfect for us... just a few miles from the beach, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. There’s also some fantastic dining spots on Colington Rd. Checkout Saltbox or Colington Pizza for dinner. Hidden Grounds is also a lovely spot for ice cream and coffee.
Colington Harbour, one of the best-kept secrets in the Outer Banks, is a deep water quiet family community located on Colington Island. Boat access to the Ocean is through Oregon Inlet; approx 30 min. by water to the south. Our home is located in desirable location with quick access to harbour & sound. The community has soundside sandy beaches, large shade trees, pavilion picnic areas w/grills & playground. It is visible from our home across the harbour but is about a mile away by road. Guests are welcome to use the 2 provided kayaks to reach the soundside beach. The boat launch ramp & pool is in same area. Amenities include an Olympic sized pool, baby pool, snack bar & lounge chairs. Tennis & basketball courts are also available in the neighborhood. Kill Devil Hills Beach (Atlantic Ocean) is 4 miles east of our home. The public beach amenities there include 2 large parking areas & bathhouse. A convenience store & Dairy Queen are within a 1-2 minute walk from the beach parking area.
Other Activities: Two tandem Kayaks (including lift vests) are provided for Guest use while staying at Sunset Escape.
