About Lynn M.

I've been visiting the OBX for since childhood (decades ago!), and my connection to the area grew even stronger as several members of my family retired or moved here from NJ. Just as I grew up loving the OBX, so have my children, who are now in high school and college, and still look forward to every trip to Duck!

We purchased Casa Azul in the summer of 2015, fulfilling a long held aspiration. That aspiration was not just about owning the house, but was also very much about providing the best vacation experience to our guests. For nearly twenty years (pretty much since the internet was invented!), we’ve been avid users of sites like Homeaway, VRBO, etc., using these platforms to rent vacation homes across the US and around the world. We believe so strongly that the direct connection between guest and host, without an impersonal (and expensive!) intermediary, enhances the travel experience. As hosts, it allows us to break the “rental company mold” a bit by providing extra touches that we hope you’ll enjoy – higher quality linens, essential supplies for the week, superior cleaning practices, etc. My local connections have enabled me to partner with the BEST professional cleaners on the beach (shout out to Stephanie!) who are as committed to your well-being and enjoyment as we are.

Lynn M. purchased this house in 2015

Why Lynn M. chose Duck

Over the years we have rented in almost every neighborhood in Duck, so when the time came to fulfill our dream of owning a home here, we knew which neighborhood was best: Four Seasons. If you’ve never stayed in Four Seasons, let me explain. First, all of the houses in Four Seasons are gorgeous, as are the community areas and buildings. There’s an almost magical quality to it…sort of like Disney, but it’s real. The community center, playground, beachside pool, tennis courts, streets and even sidewalks are super clean and beautifully maintained. It’s a (subtly, not obnoxiously…) gated community, with lush foliage, gentle hills, and curved streets, plus private pathways for biking, walking, strolling to the beach or to town. A real “plus” is the location…it is on the southern side of Duck, just 5 miles from the turnoff by the bridge, which can save you HOURS of traffic on a busy turnover day in the summer.

We chose this house in particular for reasons that are rational, and maybe not so rational! First, Casa Azul’s location within Four Seasons is ideal. It’s tucked away in a particularly peaceful, pretty street. It backs up to the very pretty northern pathway which leads to the beach, community “beachside” pool and playground in one direction, and the community center (indoor pool, fitness rooms, basketball, etc.), sound access and prime restaurants, shops and spas in the other direction. The layout of the house was perfect with large rooms and a very spacious, open feel on all levels. Plus the house and pool area are so bright and sunny, yet very private with lush trees and landscaping in front and along the sides. OK, so for the not-so-rational (!): I think the real reason we chose this house was because of the absolutely spectacular live oak trees, especially the ones that frame the rear yard! You'd never believe how buried they were in overgrowth, but we cleared it out, and now guests like you can sit in their shade, enjoying a cool drink and a good book!

What makes this house unique

Casa Azul has so much to offer, so I’ll try to list some highlights.

• Guests tell me that one of the best features of Casa Azul is that virtually every supply and amenity is provided! SO YOU CAN PACK LIGHT AND SAVE TIME AND MONEY WHILE ON VACATION! :) All linens, including high-quality sheets, bath linens, kitchen linens, even great beach towels! Bath supplies including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion ample supplies of TP!; Dish, dishwasher and laundry soap; paper products like paper towels plates, napkins; and COFFEE -- k cups and ground, plus tea, sweetener, etc.!

. The house is located in south side of Duck, which saves lots of time stuck in traffic to the northern beaches! If you’ve been here on a weekend in the summer, you know what I’m talking about! ☺

• Four Seasons is the absolute best neighborhood on the OBX. This is not “salesmanship”, it’s the truth! The quality of the homes and amenities, the quiet peaceful neighborhood, and the level of service are all unbeatable.

• The house itself is bright, beautiful and clean. We’ve been working for months to renovate including new wood floors, all new stainless appliances, new furniture, new paint…. ☺

• The yard is just wonderful, with beautiful trees that ensure there's always a cool shady spot!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It is honestly difficult to put into words how great this property is. We have rented many VRBO properties over the years and this is one of the best. From early communication with the owner (who provides TONS of information about the area) to arrival, our stay at Casa Azul was just about perfect. Our party consisted of 7 adults and 6 kids ranging in ages from 11 months to 8 years. The house provides absolutely everything we needed which made packing so much easier for our large group. The beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, and bikes were all in excellent condition. The house is also stocked with baby essentials (pack n play, high chair, gates) which was so appreciated. Beds are very comfortable, theater room is a fun touch, and we can’t say enough about how great having a private pool is! The town of Duck is a quick walk along the pathway in the back of the house in one direction while the beach was a quick walk in the other. We travel with excellent cooks so we only ate out one time (Wave pizza on the sound was so good!). The kitchen is fully stocked with every kitchen gadget you would need along with plenty of high quality pots, pans and dishes. We have already booked two return trips and look forward to staying at Casa Azul for years to come!

Simply beautiful home in the perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We really can't say enough about this property. With a multi-generational group of 14, it's hard to meet everyone's needs, but this place was perfect. Besides having six bedrooms and multiple baths, there was plenty of room to spread out when you just want to read or relax without bothering everyone else.

It was exceptionally clean. the beds were super comfortable and everyone loved the pillows. (I know, kind of a weird comment, but we're a family that takes our pillows everywhere we go whenever we can so we're pretty picky about pillows.) I also personally loved the bath products.

We so enjoyed the pool. The water temperature was perfect and the shade was lovely. We were lucky to have great weather and we took our rented bikes (definitely recommend) down to the ocean every day and downtown too. As Lynn, the owner mentioned, Duck was made for biking.

The house was very well stocked with everything needed for the coffee lovers, the ones who love to cook, and the ones who love to grill. The owner definitely put a lot of thought into what a guest might need--even down to the flashlights for those late night crabbing trips or early morning sunrise hikes.

I actually think that was the very best part--working with this owner. Lynn provided so much information before the trip on what to see and do, she helped us with deciding the best times to travel in and out and was there to answer any question we had during our stay. We all agreed she was the best contact we've ever had.

So thanks again Lynn. We simply loved it.

FABULOUS GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful home was fabulous! We were here for a week with our children and grandchildren, ranging from 4 to 80 years old, from the East Coast, West Coast and Canada. The house was perfect for our four families, to do things together or in small groups. The long dining room table is great for family games, the pool is wonderful, with shade where we needed it, and imagine having a theater to watch a movie or follow the World Cup Soccer! The house is spacious and very clean with supplies of every kind and then some, and the beds and pillows were a dream!

We took walks to the beach and rode the bikes, went exploring and shopping in Duck Town, watched a beautiful sunset over the Sound and an equally beautiful sunrise over the ocean, and when the days were very hot and I wanted to walk, I found a treadmill in the cool fitness center of the Club.

With the teenagers and adults in our group we attended a very special event that is going on every summer: The Lost Colony of Roanoke, a Historic Outdoor Drama about the first colony which mysteriously disappeared around the year 1587. It takes 2 1/2 hours and it has an amazing set and great cast.

We had a wonderful contact with Lynn, the homeowner, from beginning to end, and will tell anyone interested in a fabulous, relaxing vacation, that this house has it all!

Wow, what a house!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our family stayed at Casa Azul. Lynn and her team made sure everything was taken care of, including towels, toiletries, paper products, plastic bags, soap, you name it. That made all the difference, on top of the beautiful house, pool, and location to the beach and downtown Duck. The new bikes were great for taking a ride into town. We also loved the walk to the beach on the path behind the house - don't have to worry about cars and kids. This is truly a 5 star vacation home and we hope to visit again soon!

Excellent stay; beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The owner and manager have done everything to make sure we had a pleasant stay. Besides being a beautiful home, well-decorated, and room for all (we had 14), I especially liked that they provide amenities. (That meant we didn't have to spend time going to the store for toilet paper, etc.) It is a short walk to the beach, and also a short walk to downtown Duck. Very convenient.

**The immediate area ** Four Seasons resort is bright, peaceful and family-oriented (and an award-winning resort!). There's lots to do here, e.g. the beach (of course!), "beach side" pool, (high-quality) playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, tetherball, shuffleboard, (gorgeous) indoor pool, community center with rec room (e.g. ping-pong), well-equipped gym, locker rooms, sound-side pier, walking/biking paths, etc. And Casa Azul is especially well-positioned, e.g. short stroll to all amenities, PLUS, the property backs up to the prettiest area of private pathway (bike/walk) that goes toward the beach in one direction, "downtown" Duck in the other!

OK, now Duck...without question the best town on the Outer Banks! Quaint, charming, bright and relaxed, yet has all high-end amenities. Biker/pedestrian-friendly throughout. Stroll to the best restaurants, spas, shops, and sights around.

OK, now, in the vicinity...Even if you've been to the OBX before, there are items on this list that might surprise you! :)

There are too many activities to list, and many are unique to the Duck area! I will provide a link to details on all of this, but here are some highlights....

- Visit the "4x4" area - which includes maritime forests and wild horse sanctuary - to be among the WILD COLONIAL SPANISH MUSTANGS, who are direct descendants of the horses that arrived with the Spanish explorers in the 16th century (yes, this is a real thing and an unforgettable experience!).

- Speaking of unforgettable, visit Jockey's Ridge State Park, to see the tallest natural dunes area on the east coast...it's like visiting a different planet...and you can HIKE , PICNIC , go HANG-GLIDING (all levels, or tandem) , ** HANG-GLIDE on a replica of the WRIGHT BROTHERS' wings from 1902** , go SAND BOARDING (yup, it's just like snow boarding) , and LEARN at the top-notch visitors' center, etc.

- Enjoy every watersport you can imagine, as a learner or expert, including SURFING , KAYAKING , PADDLE BOARDING , JET SKIING , TUBING , PARASAILING , SAILING , CATAMARAN(ing?), etc.

- Go on a DOLPHIN-WATCHING TOUR (98% success) or WHALE-WATCHING TOUR.

-

- Take a SHIPWRECK DIVING TOUR (How cool is that?! Certification required).

- Go CRABBING , SHRIMPING, or FISHING...so many options: deep-sea, surf, pier, sound...

- And, of course, GOLF! - available at several nearby courses (Currituck Club is closest...and gorgeous!), plus DRIVING RANGES, and MINIATURE GOLF COURSES are abundant.
