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!

FABULOUS -- BETTER STOCKED THAN MY KITCHEN AT HOME

  • 5 of 5

Lynn was wonderful. Easy to work with. Everything went off without a hitch. A group of us had to go the outer banks but we turned it into a terrific trip and bonding time with Lynn's house. All single adults so it was nice having a tv in each room. We shared the cooking and only went out twice in the entire 3 days. The photos are comprehensive and accurate but it is even better in real life. I'd like to stay again in the spring or fall with my family.

Christmas 2017 was AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot put into words the incredible experience our family had at this wonderful location. From booking through check out Lynn and her staff were amazing! Our family converged on the location from various regions of the east coast and the photos do not capture how beautiful this home is. Everything you can think of is provided. We thoroughly enjoyed the media room and the large dining room table was a big hit for game nights! My family and I will not hesitate to come back. We highly recommend staying at this location to anyone!

Above and Beyond

  • 5 of 5

Those are the words that come to mind when I think about Casa Azul, Lynn, and her assistants. Case Azul offered everything we could possibly need or want, aside from your personal food choices. We literally did not have to bring anything else. Lynn shared so much information about the house and Duck itself before and during our stay. The house is amazing, so spacious and something for everyone! No matter what time of year you won't be disappointed. We just returned from our New Year's stay and the temperatures were frigid. Between the theater room, game room, hot tub and reading nook everyone was happy and the best part was that no one ever complained about being bored. We had nine in our party, and while the youngest were teenagers I think they would have been just as happy if they were younger. Thank you Lynn for allowing us to share your beautiful home. We hope to return another day! (My youngest has already asked if we can return when it's warmer!)

Thanksgiving in Duck

  • 5 of 5

Our immediate family , 9 adults and 6 grandchildren (now almost grown) has spent the Thanksgiving holidays these last several years at the outer banks in Duck, NC. We rent a large house so all can stay together for the week. This year we did not get 100% attendance but we did have 11 for the week (plus 1 more for 1 night) .We used VRBO to make our rental and Casa Azul was perfect for that size group. All were impressed by the beautiful house and the extras provided by the owner, Lynn. Many items were provided that we usually have to buy after we get there, such as spices, paper towels, coffee, lots of soap, toilet paper, and even some contact lens cleaner. The location, right in the heart of Duck, meant that trips to Duck Doughnuts, Winks, and the boardwalk were only minutes away and could be walked if we wanted. All in all, it was a great Thanksgiving for our family... thanks Lynn!

Awesome place to vacation in October

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic rental in October. We used just about every feature including the pool, the bike, the toys, the cart to the beach, the pool table, the movie room, every bedroom, every bathroom, the well stocked kitchen, the smart TV in the main living room, the spacious dining table, the great coffee, the card table, the beach, the outside shower (best), the gas grill, the recommendations of restaurants, the awesome shower supplies (soaps and shampoos and lotions), the morning room on top floor overlooking the pool, the oak trees and tree swing, the ice maker and downstairs refrigerator, and the baby crib. This was the most well provided rental we have ever had and Lynn was a great host. We loved it.

You CAN have it all- and bring your dog!

  • 5 of 5

When we decided to search for a pet friendly rental, we never imagined we would find such an amazing property as Casa Azul! The home is spacious, beautifully decorated (think relaxed yet stylish, beachy but not kitschy) and generously appointed with supplies and amenities. The location is fantastic- we walked to beach, sound and village with ease, and the Four Seasons neighborhood is a lovely quiet enclave with many mature trees and lush landscaping. Lynn proved to be a super-responsive and attentive owner, who even came to the rescue locating and shipping an important item we left behind. This home will not disappoint!!!

**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.
