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
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.
We already miss the beautiful, serene feeling of sitting on the dock of home and watching the sky change from day to beautiful night or paddling the kayaks to the park and swinging with the kids. The name is perfect! "Sunset Escape" is a wonderful place and Yvonne was a perfect hostess!
We have been visiting OBX for the past few years, always looking to try new things and stay at new places. In the past, we've always stayed ocean side as we love the ocean. But this year, we strayed from the norm and looked at the sound side mainly because our boys love to fish. We also loved the proximity to everything OBX.
When we arrived, we were blown away by the house. It was spacious, super clean, and offered everything we wanted. Soon after settling in, we were off in the kayaks...great fun for sure and a perfect addition to a great house! Our time in OBX was spent doing loads of fun things and the house offered a great place to chill and relax when the day was done.
Yvonne was an excellent host....emailing all the particulars well ahead of time, offering up tips for the local area, and replying promptly to any questions we had. As we try to do new things in the OBX each year, I believe we may have found one thing to do each year...stay at this house!
If you are torn between this house and another, do yourself a favor and get this one. You won't be disappointed! Thank you so much!
First, I don't know why it's taken me SO long to write this review because we have nothing but great things to say about this home and Yvonne! The home was definitely a home away from home and having small children with us made that all the more important to us. Everything about this rental from first contact to last was smooth. The house is equipped with everything you need for your stay. The location is perfect no matter what you come to the beach for. We just can't say enough good things and will most definitely be staying here again in the future! Thank you!!
This was our second time staying at the Scott's home (2 years in a row). First of all, there is so much space! The house allows for lots of privacy for a few families - there are 4 full bathrooms! We (again) loved the use of the 2 tandem kayaks and just hopping into the water out back. Caught some crabs (the little ones loved this) and had great evenings as an entire group with the large table for big family meals. If you've never been over to the "sound beach" you need to do yourself the favor. We've been staying in Colington for years, and our friends never believe how wonderful and calm it is until they actually get there. The beach is an easy drive, and of course the close proximity of TJ's (for little things, gas, beer, etc.) and Billy's (for fresh seafood) makes this the best area ever. There are tvs in almost every room and a nice treasure trove of books and games as well. Nice sized grill, too. We have loved working with Yvonne and the ease of dealing with the reservation. Deposit was refunded in under 2 weeks. No nonsense here; just awesome people offering their lovely home at a reasonable price. We hope to stay here for years to come. Thanks again, Scott family!
What a great week at the beach for our group of 6 (2 adults, 4 teens)! This place has everything...privacy, quiet, water views, kayaks, crab pots, a wonderful gas grill, and even beach chairs. This was the most stress free vacation ever because we just showed up and everything we needed was there. We rented all of our linens and towels, as well as bikes, from Ocean Atlantic Rentals. They delivered everything to the door before we got there and picked it up at the house the day we left. I highly recommend this service...less to pack and wash and price was reasonable. Colington Harbor is a great place to be because it is right in the middle as far as mileposts go but off the main area just enough to get away from everything. It is a great community and we enjoyed the sound side beach and pool as well. Yvonne was excellent to work with. We had a problem with the Internet service during our stay and she was very responsive, really going out of her way to solve it. The house itself is very clean, beds are comfortable, kitchen has everything you need. Really couldn't have changed a thing! Thanks to the Scott's for letting us share your beautiful home!
This house was perfect for my family of six adults. There is plenty of room for families. The house was very clean and had everything that is listed in the description. The owner was very nice and helpful to work with. I would definitely recommend this house for families to rent.
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.
