Colington Harbour House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Soundfront vacationing doesn’t get any better than a stay at OTTER’S RUN! Experiencing unmatched sunset views over the Albemarle Sound is just the beginning of what you can expect. With four lovely bedrooms, expansive sun and covered decks and the prized community amenities you can only find in the gated community of Colington Harbour.

Enjoy swimming in the community saltwater pool complete with a diving board and swim lanes, watch the young one have a blast in the kiddie pool or at the playground, meet new friends while playing tennis on one of the featured courts. You can even take a dip in the sound after relaxing on the soundfront beach or launch you boat from the community boat launch which includes a private marina!

OTTER’S RUN even features a beautiful spiral staircase leading to the great room along with a swim ladder and beach equipment. Even better, spend the day enjoying the endless inlets and sandbars while experiencing the local wildlife with one of the two kayaks proudly provided by the homeowner (one tandem and one single).

Reviewer Comments:

We couldn't be happier with this house. It was very spacious, the views are amazing. Relaxing, fishing and crabbing all afternoon after an entire day at the beach. This house has everything for every one, the kayaks +++, though we had to buy our own fishing poles at the local K-Mart. My 8 y/o son was sad to leave, he asked if we could stay for a whole month! I wish!!! Carolina Shores staff was great at checking in and checking out, easy process and very pleasant. We checked in Kitty Hawk office.

Very nice house, neighbors are friendly. Great access to the sound for kayaking. The only downfall is the grill. We do a lot of our own cooking and the grill is very basic and flares up a lot.

Reviewer Comments:

A few comments: 1) The house actually has a nice central A/C, which was not mentioned in property description. 2) Very nice crabbing from the back yard. A lot and big. The house provided a crab pot (one more will be great), a crab net and 2 buckets. I caught 2 dozens of big crabs 7:30pm-8:30pm using the crab net and a few hand lines tied to chicken leg quarters. 3) Not many bugs as expected. After reading a previous review, we brought a mosquito repellent lantern and some sprays, but didn’t use them except for evening outdoor stay. Of course, the weather was nice and dry during the week. I suggest removing 2 rain collecting pans, one in the back yard with plants growing and one on the 2nd floor deck with decoration stones, which are attracting/producing bugs with water in.

Reviewer Comments:

I hate leaving a bad review but for this I feel like I need to. Let me start by saying the location is great!!! The views are beautiful and if you can ignore everything else have at it. However....we walked in to a smell that required a lot of febreeze and air freshener purchases. It was only upstairs so I think had something to do with the carpet or furniture? The spiral staircase to get from the top level to the bottom level is unusable unless you are small or a kid. Every time the dog and I needed to go downstairs we'd have to go outside, down the outside stairs, and then in the outside entrance. I could have dealt with that however there was standing water next door in the driveway and in other various areas and mosquitos were everywhere!!! Even using bug spray I came away with over 45 mosquito bites on my legs, just from those trips, yes I counted. Thank god the dog is on heartworm preventative. One of the kitchen doors wouldn't close so was just wide open the entire stay, they'd tried to fix it but the cabinets are pretty shot. The furniture is horrible, we saw better at the local thrift stores! There was no where inside to really relax because the cushions were so flat you were basically on wood on the couch. Thankfully the upper deck is usable due to a breeze which meant no mosquitos but that was the only spot outside that was. Loved the outer banks....would not rent this place again even with the views I'm sorry. Buy some new furniture, replace the carpet, some kitchen updates, new bedding and somehow fix the stairs and you'd have a great place on the inside. Not sure what can be done about mosquitos when I was told the island sprays every day.

Reviewer Comments:

My family had a great time, it was their first trip to Outer Banks. They now know why I love it there. The kayaks were great to have to use. I was able to take my granddaughter kayaking for the first time. It is now on the agenda to get her one. There are just a couple things that would have made it super. There is no direct access from the main living area upstairs to the yard. The grill is really small and difficult to cook a meal for 8 people on. The cooking pans in the kitchen were minimal and I had to buy a baking pan to use in the oven because the grill was too small with no area to roast potatoes in foil. A very large supply of dishes, glasses, and silverware. Really great the owner supplied both glass/ceramic and plastic dinnerware.
