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 North Carolina

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.

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.

Perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We enjoyed a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. There was something for everyone. Fishing and crabbing (we did well throughout the week), outdoor hammock swing, easy access to Outer Banks attractions. Met some very nice locals as well. One of our best experiences. Yvonne was extremely easy to work with and helpful with our questions.

Very Lovely Home in Central OBX

  • 5 of 5

The Scott's home is very lovely. It provided a comfortable and relaxing setting for our family as we explored the outer banks. With its central location in OBX, it provided a great opportunity to explore all along the coast. Also, being on the sound side, we enjoyed many nights watching the sunset from the local beach as well as kayaking in the canal. The owner provided timely responses on any questions or requests that we had. I would highly recommend this home for a family getaway.

Spacious, comfortable and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay! The home had everything we needed. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The beds were comfortable and there are TVs in every bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked many meals. There is wifi available. The neighborhood is very peaceful. We enjoyed watching the ducks rest on the pier outside. There is plenty of seating outside and even a swing.

Loved it! Best owner and great to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

House is in great shape, well appointed, and as described. In a gated community with interesting access to sound and water. The owner is great to deal with and was very helpful in ensuring our trip was a success. Try the restaurants on the way to community (Saltbox and the pizza place) and you won't be disappointed.

Great Rental - Tom and Marge - PA.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay in a nice quiet area of Colington Harbour. The listing was accurate with clean accommodations and the kitchen wonderfully stocked. We have been coming to the Outer Banks for over 40 years and this was one of our favorite rental homes ever. Our 5 year old grandson just loved crabbing from the dock and playing at the sound side playground which he wanted to visit daily. He also loved a minature golf course (Professor Hackers Lost Treasure Golf) that had a train ride that transports players to the first hole. Although tucked away on the sound, the house is conveniently located to major attractions. We easily gained access to the Wright Brothers National Park, NC Aquarium, the beach at the ocean (with a bath house) and the wonderful sound side beach and playground. We also were within earshot of great restaurants, Black Pelican, Millers Steak and Seafood, Millers on the Water, Stack Em High (fun for kids) and Saltbox Café which is located just down the street on Colington Rd. We also went to the Kill Devil Grill a couple times and though off-season they always had a long wait which simply did not work for a 5 year old, so we never did get a chance to eat there. On the way home from Manteo, we stopped at Blue Water Grill and Raw Bar (located dock side at pirates Cove) for a fabulous lunch. Try the grits and shrimp appetizer with a tasty sauce (superb). Really, try them, I never knew grits could be this good! In closing, we would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone who likes to be on the water at a very reasonable cost as comparable to other rentals in the outer banks area. Owners were easy to work with and responded to all inquiries promptly.

Happy vacationing!
