About Lynn Hoffmann

Please feel free to contact the owners, Lynn and Rich Hoffmann @ 202.213.9627 for information / with questions. We welcome your comments and suggestions. We have a large family and make our home enjoyable for large and small groups with many extras for comfort and convenience.

We take pride in maintaining and improving ' Life o' Rily' and spend as much time as possible at the Outer Banks in Duck and Corolla. Our other home is in Corolla, NC VRBO # 56291, another stylish, well located & unique home with the best indoor / outdoor pool around located in Corolla Light Resort, a full service Ocean to Sound community, also voted a 'Best N.C. Resort

Community of the Year'.

Lynn Hoffmann purchased this house in 2010

Why Lynn Hoffmann chose Outer Banks

We've enjoyed vacationing in Duck and the Outer Banks for many years and believe Four Seasons neighborhood is the finest one in Duck due to the ideal location and it's unique style and year round amenities. It's an easy drive from the Mid Atlantic area one hour south of Norfolk, Va and the Airport. We also own VRBO # 56291 in Corolla Light, the 2010 Best Resort Community in North Carolina.

What makes this house unique

Where to begin .... You can take it easy or Go, Go, Go. depending onyour mood, companions and the time of the year. Staying home is a pleasure due to the comfort and style of Life o' Rily'. There is a great variety of scenic, cultural, natural, sport and relaxation options. A reasonable drive from major midatlantic cities but feels a world away. This area is becoming known as an event destination for family reunions, weddings and friends retreats. Our home accomodates large groups well and Four Seasons has year round amenities. We love walking or riding bikes around Duck Village. The natural beauty of the area is valued and protected and 'smart growth' is becoming the practice to limit over building and commercialization. The town's walking trails, shops and restaurants, Soundfront Park and boardwalk add a lot to the enjoyment and convenience of a visit to Duck .

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at Life O'Riley with three generations of our family and loved the house.

I have been renting in NC, DE or MD beaches for the past 20 summers and have never found a home so well equipped. I usually bring my own kitchen gadgets and cooking utensils, no need. The kitchen had everything you could need including a roaster, crock pot, waffle iron and griddle to make feeding a crowd easy. The well stocked guest closet with beech chairs, bikes for adults and kids and just about everything else you need for the beach/pool was great. The beds were very comfortable as were the couches. The kids loved having their own pool/game/living room and the adults appreciated that the home has two hot tubs, a large pool and slide and that each bedroom had its own bathroom, flat screen TV and access to a deck (except one that is about 20 feet from the sliders to the pool).

The location was great, especially for being able to walk or bike to just about everything. We really enjoyed spending time at the beach and the Duck shops/boardwalk, both were an easy walk from the house. In the afternoon when the kids were to tired for the walk, the community offers a shuttle around the complex to the beach and main road.

Lynn was very easy to book with, her manager was great at coordinating our check in and kept in regular contact with us. We of course were one of those families who broke something, the lock to the sliding glass door, but maintenance replied to us immediately, making the repair in about an hour.

Overall it was a great house that allowed for a great week at the beach, we will stay at Life O'Riley again and are looking forward to it.

A note about the check in and check out. Your paperwork will ask you nicely not to go directly to the house to try to check in early and to call the manager instead.....this will be a benefit to you at check out....I have rented at other houses and been asked to wipe down all the surfaces, vacuum, sweep/mop and so on at check out before the cleaners come in, that is not the case at Life O'Riley and I loved that....you have a minimal check list and are on your way back home. The reason you don't have a lot to do at check out is because of how meticulous the cleaning crew is after you leave...... don't interrupt the cleaning crew.

Great Family Friendly House

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at the Life O'Riley (6/4/16 - 6/11/16). Thirteen family members of three generations stayed together for a week and the only squabbles heard were when it was time to go home. With eight bedrooms, 8 1/2 bathrooms, a private pool with slide, a pool table, and much more no one ever felt squeezed for space. It is an easy walk to the beach. This is the only house we rented in the past eight years that include a variety of bikes for kids and adults. No need to pack boogie boards or sand toys....there was plenty there for a big crowd. Another thing all the adults commented about was the privacy of the back side of the house where the pool and hot tubs (2) are located. We were in the pool and hot tubs a lot and with all the mature bushes and trees it seemed like we were on a private oasis. We hope to get a large family group together again for another trip to the Life O'Riley. Thanks Lynn for all your hospitality.

Great folks to work with

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Life o' Riley and enjoyed our time there immensely. The home is warm and inviting, as well as spacious. There are two dishwashers in the kitchen, and that was so nice. It made cleanup much easier. We also appreciated the bikes that were available to us. We had brought some, but the extra ones came in handy. It is conveniently located near the beach entrance, and biking distance from the shops. Most of all, Lynn was so enjoyable to deal with in making our plans. We would definitely stay there again.

Great house in Duck

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Life o'Riley and loved it! The four seasons community was welcoming and had all the amenities promised in the advertisement. The house itself was in great shape and all the new furnishings really made a difference. The house had a nice modern feel to it. The house was clean when we arrived. One of the perks that we really enjoyed was that they provided bicycles for us to use to go around the community. It was also helpful to get back and forth from the beach as its about a 5 min walk. This trip was a low key bachelor party for me and my friends. We enjoyed every minute of it! Thanks Life O' Riley for the memories!!

Everyone hated to leave!

  • 5 of 5

When gathering family from five states and great distances, the destination has to be good and Life 0'Rily did not disappoint. We ranged in age from 4months to 70+, filled every bed and enjoyed every moment of our 50th wedding anniversary celebration there.

Vacation rentals are rarely as well equipped, comfortable and attractive as Life o'Rily. The Four Seasons Community was likewise unusually attractive, well planned and maintained, with many family friendly amenities. Our week there flew by far too quickly in spite of poor weather and when Saturday morning arrived we all hated to leave.

The owners were a pleasure to work with, gracious and tirelessly helpful with all our questions. They have put a great deal of thought into making their house as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
