About Rick Pomeroy
This is our first year on HomeAway which explains why there are only a few reviews. We are a family of 9 going on 11. We purchased this condo in 1991 and I wished I would have bought 10 of them. We love the Duck community and Colony By The Sea. We all grew up in Columbus Ohio but are now spread out in Atlanta, Columbus and Las Vegas. For 26 years we have enjoyed the Duck beaches, food, shops, ice cream, water activities, adult time and all the other amenities. Duck is our favorite beach place to go.

Why Rick Pomeroy chose Duck
The views, the location, the town of Duck, the people, the food, things for the kids to do, its quiet....it just doesn't get much better. We bought the condo sight unseen and wish we could have purchased 20 condo's in the town of duck. This is a very safe place to visit.
What makes this Condo unique
outstanding views, watch the dolphins from the deck, great restaurants that you can walk to, steps from the beach, pool available during the season, updated kitchen and bathrooms and furniture. There are 4 buildings in Colony By The Sea and our building is 1 of 2 oceanfront buildings. Additionally, our building has an enlarged deck overlooking the pool, grills and picnic tables. You are only going to find the enlarged decks on building A. The decks on buildings B, C and D are much smaller. The A & D buildings are the Oceanfront buildings. There are washing machines and dryers on the ground level of each building.

Anniversary Get Away
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this great condo! Very clean and looked exactly like the pictures online. Beautiful sunrises and moonlit nights from our ocean front deck. One minute walk to beach. Right up the street from the center of town. So close to everything!!! Owner responded quickly to my email questions before I booked and once when we were on our way to the condo. Perfect for a couple!! I'd highly recommend this cozy condo!!
Location, Location, Location!
We have been coming to Duck for almost 30 years and you can't beat the location of Colony by the Sea. Our host was super responsive and easy to get a hold of. We rented bikes and went all over the place exploring, even though we have been coming down for so long and know every inch like the back of our hands! This condo has a stunning view and was relatively clean. Giving it 4 stars because of the bed situation. The master bed was like a soft bouncy house. My husband and I tried to sleep on it and kept rolling to the middle. I thought I was going to bounce to the ceiling a couple of times when my husband turned over as he's heavier than me! We did laugh about it at first. Tried the pullout, ugh, not good. I ended up putting a sheet on the couch and sleeping there the entire week while my husband slept on the bed. He did try the hall mattress, which is not a mattress. It is just a foam thing and you felt the platform underneath you. We tried putting it on the floor in the living room for him to sleep next to me and well, it was like being on the floor. Other than that, we have ZERO complaints. We were able to bring our Roku to plug into the TV. We grilled almost every night. Sat on the deck for hours. Walked the wonderful beach for hours. Duck is magical, and this location is ideal. We would book again every year if the sleeping situation was fixed with no hesitation.
Sasha thank you for your feedback as this is the best way for me to understand the issues that need to be addressed. This is the first complaint that I have received regarding the beds. But I will address the mattresses and have the beds checked out to see if some thing has come loose. If not then it may be time to replace the bed. Thanks again!
Our stay in July 2019
We had a really nice time. The location was great. Rick was very easy to get a hold of when we had questions and answered them in a timely manner.
Amy was easy to work with and took care of the space.... thanks Amy you are welcomed back anytime!

Duck in May
Overall, this was a nice place for an older condo. Needs a little TLC, But the upgrades that have been done are great. It’s in a perfect location .
