1st Time in Outer Banks
"This was our first vacation to the Outer Banks. We were very pleased with the Blue Fin. We traveled with six adults, four children 2 and under and one dog. There was plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the home. The kitchen was well equipped and even provided kitchen towels and paper towels. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The only suggestion would be for the playground area to either be sand or grass. There were too many rocks and plants for the children to play outside. The children did enjoy the swing set, pool, and porch swing. The first day we walked to the beach which was about a mile walk. The rest of the time we took the shuttle which was much more enjoyable.
The gated community is great and we enjoyed using the community indoor and outdoor pools as well. We also enjoyed the short walk to Duck. Of course the Duck donuts were great!
We were not prepared for the four hours that it took us to go the last twenty miles to the house in bumper to bumper traffic.
Would certainly recommend this home and community."

"I stay at this rental every year. I just love how clean it is and how the owner has everything you could possibly need. Very comfy beds and they remodeled all of the bathrooms. They just got a brand new Electrolux Refrig/freezer that has 2 ice cube makers. You never run out of ice with that nice feature. Also just got a brand new wash machine. The owner calls you once you are checked in to make sure the rental has everything you need. If you need anything at all while you are there, she gives you her personal phone number to call her directly. They do have a high return rate every year so you do have to call early to book to get in for the week you want. It is well worth the price. Everything is close by, a gas station, coffee shops, eating places, the ocean beach and the sound side with all its little shops and boardwalk. The sunsets are gorgeous and are only a few blocks away to see. The view from the deck looking towards the ocean has a 180 degree view. Great for sitting out there with your morning coffee. I already have my week reserved for next year. :)"

"We've stayed in fancy Duck houses and a couple that were below our standards. This house is just right. Really comfortable, well maintained, nicely equipped kitchen, great spa with pleasant outdoor seating. The Colony By the Sea pool - right by the beach, with bathrooms - is a great arrangement for a family. The bedrooms downstairs are small, but if your main purpose - like ours - was to be either outside or together in the common areas, that's a minor consideration. Janet the owner is friendly and helpful."

"Great place. Super kitchen area, loved ice maker and 2 ovens. Garage refrigerator was handy too. Thanks for the beach chairs. So much better than buying or renting. Had a wonderful time. It was very hot during our stay and the AC worked great."
