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!

                                                          Tertific spot in the outer banks!

                                                          Fantastic! So comfortable and well equipped.

                                                          Best house that we have rented so far

                                                          Olga B.

                                                          Lynn is the best host that we have worked with so far. She was in contact with us from a few weeks before the stay to the time we checked out. She was flexible with letting us check in early and was available via text or email at all times. She was pleasant to work with and very friendly. She even had a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived.

                                                          The home itself was beautiful. My family and I came down to all spend Easter together. There was 9 of us plus a toddler and our puppies. Even with all these bodies in the house, it never felt cramped. The layout was great, everyone had their own private area and there were many communal areas throughout the home, I don't even think we were able to utilize all of them. The movie room was a hit, our family kept brainstorming what movie to watch next. Lynn has thought of everything that you could possibly need on your trip: extra pool towels, to-go disposable coffee cups, bug spray, beach chairs and a pushcart, and many many more things you didn't even know that you needed. Although I must mention that there was only one bike when we stayed here, maybe we had overlooked where the other one was located. We wish we could have gone for a nice long bike ride if there was another bike available. The bike that was available was in great condition and didn't appear to be weathered by the ocean elements.

                                                          The house is a short walk from the beach, which was very convenient when we woke up early to go watch the sunrise. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, tucked away off of the main road (great for dogs and kids). The house was pristinely clean and cozy. The hot tub worked great, it was clean and hot when we arrived. We did not get a chance to use the pool because it was a little bit chilly at the beginning of April when we stayed here.

                                                          Since this is a part of the Four Seasons resort, you have access to the main clubhouse which has an indoor pool and a playground for kids. We did not personally utilize them, but my understanding is that these were available to us. If we stayed here longer than 3 nights that we would have.

                                                          Trust me, you will not be disappointed if you stay here!

                                                          Perfect getaway!

                                                          John G.

                                                          The home is beautiful, the location is great and the owner is on top of everything. Our family had a wonderful vacation enjoying the amenities of the home and club house. There's a short walk to the beach and enjoyed sitting on the porch listening to the waves at night. The home is immaculate and has everything you need - the owner is very responsive to all questions, kept us continually informed and was a true pleasure to work with. We hope to return again soon!

                                                          Wish there were 10 stars!!!!! Outstanding home and owner!

                                                          Sandy G.

                                                          Our host, Lynn, is THE BEST! She is prompt in her email responses, thoughtful and considerate about special requests/situations (we were there for a wedding), and totally accommodating. Her arrival instructions and local restaurant and sight seeing information is very thorough. Every thing you can imagine is available in the house upon your arrival, including paper towels, toilet paper, soaps, cleaning supplies, etc. There are many movies to choose from in the theatre room, as well as many other forms of entertainment. I honestly wish there was a way to give a 10 star review, but unfortunately the system is only set up for 5 stars. If you are looking for a lovely, well appointed home, and an OUTSTANDING owner, Casa Azul is your place! We had a fantastic experience. Don't miss this wonderful home/location! Sandy G.

                                                          FABULOUS -- BETTER STOCKED THAN MY KITCHEN AT HOME

                                                          Sandra A.

                                                          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!!

                                                          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!

                                                          **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.
