The courtyard area includes grilling stations, picnic tables and plenty of grassy area for kids of all ages to run around and play. A great area to meet new friends and share a meal if you like.
The Village of Duck is a short 15 minute walk where you can enjoy beautiful sunsets, spectacular restaurants, water sports, unique shopping, walk the soundside boardwalk for shopping and birdwatching, sip coffee, buy books, take yoga classes and so much more. Park your car and enjoy the freedom of walking everywhere!

About Jennifer & David Meredith
Dave and I (Jen) live in Fairfax, Virginia and have been making the trek to Duck since we were married in 2001 (Jen has been going since 1966 - well at least to Nags Head). Dave grew up in Buena Vista, VA (by way of Arkansas) and I grew up in Fairfax City. Even though OBX is a little furher from our home than other beaches - it is totally worth it. We hope that you can share our love for Duck and Colony by the Sea!!
Jennifer & David Meredith purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Jennifer & David Meredith chose Dare County
There was NO doubt that we wanted to buy a property in Colony by the Sea - it was just a matter of which one. Having lugged suitcases up 3 flights of stairs (and a bunch of other stuff), been so far back we could hardly see the ocean and spending time in condos that were just not clean or homey enough - we finally found the right one! We love that we are right on the ocean, one floor up and our parking space is right next to the stairs. Coming from the traffic in Northern Virginia, we are MOST happy with the fact that we don't have to drive anywhere!! What a treat.
What makes this Condo unique
Duck is very different than the other OBX beaches and other beaches on the East Coast. We like to call it our sleepy little village in the midst of other craziness! Most of the homes down here are SO big, it was hard for us to find a place that was right (and affordable) for just the two of us. I don't even think most people know that Colony by the Sea exists (and we should keep it that way!). Our little place is perfect for a couple, girls/guys weekend and small families. The deck is magnificent and now that we have all new deck furniture - comfy cozy!

A great place to stay and unwind.
Back for our second year and we liked it so much that we added a second week. A delightful condo, truly steps from the beach. All the comforts of home, everything is exactly as described. We were there in the early Fall; a very peaceful and quiet location, yet access to everything you need in Duck or even more in the larger shopping centers just a few miles away. The sunrises from the deck are spectacular as are the sunsets (an easy walk or quick bike) on the Sound. Good biking paths in all directions for those so inclined. We'll be back again!
We love having repeat guests!! Please come back next year!
A short stay at Duck!
We (couple) stayed two nights in early April. The property was clean, comfortable and perfect for experiencing a beautiful sun rise.
Wonderful place in the perfect location
We spent a weekend at the condo and loved it! Even though we did not spend much time there, it was perfect for us. Each kid had their own place to sleep, lovely decorations, clean, great location with an oceanfront deck right in the middle of Duck. If the weather had been warmer we would have enjoyed walking everywhere...but it was a little chilly. The owners are awesome -shared some great info with us on the area. I highly recommend At Last and we can’t wait to stay here again!
So glad you had a great time, Amy! Come back and visit! We have some openings in the summer!!!
Spark Up Your Vacation
Delighted to walk through the door into a clean, well equipped unit. Comfortable chairs on the deck allowed us to sit and chat, or quietly wait for the sunrise. The additional visits by Sparky ( the friendly, local cat ) made us smile and appreciate how kind the people in the area are, as he seems to be known by all. The "neighbors" we met were friendly, and the place allows for quick access to the beach as well as walks into town. Having the linen service allowed us to pack less and arrive with everything set up to relax and enjoy our stay. Thank you for providing such a comfortable, clean place to stay.
This is the perfect condo!! Beautifully decorated and very inviting.
This is our second year staying here. It couldn't be anymore perfect for my husband and I. The beach is so close. The town of Duck has amazing shops and restaurants. We will be returning for next year

Home away from home!
A relaxing week away from every day pressures. Being able to enjoy the sunrise from the balcony & then a short walk for a day at the beach. Although we had everything we needed to cook in, we chose to visit a new restaurant each night while driving & taking in the sites. Watching the sunset behind Blue Point while listening to the live music was a real treat. We hope to return next year. Thanks Jen & Dave for a wonderful stay!
