About Yvonne Scott
Dear Guests - Thank you for considering our home for your vacation! My name is Yvonne Scott and my husband's name is Stan. We have two children, ages 23 and 20. We live in Fairfax County in Northern Virginia. I work full time in the software industry but also have a background in real estate. Stan owns an electrical contracting business. We all love the Outer Banks area as we really enjoy boating and being on the water.
Yvonne Scott purchased this House in 2009
Why Yvonne Scott chose Colington Harbour
Stan and I have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for almost 30 years now. We discovered Colington Harbour back in 2005 after we purchased our Waverunner jet skis. We wanted to bring our jet skis on vacation with us and we discovered Colington Harbour is the perfect neighborhood where you can rent an affordable home and have your own dock. We also really enjoy fishing and crabbing. Being on the water away from the beach crowds is very relaxing but yet it's close enough to visit the beach attractions and restaurants. For several years we rented homes in Colington for our annual summer vacation. After a few years we knew we wanted to invest in a second home property in Colington Harbour. One day hope to retire at our home.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great Family Getaway
Safe, quiet, neighborhood and canal. Kids had a great time swimming, fishing, and kayaking. Short drive to the beach. The home was clean and spacious. Loved sitting on the back deck in the evening.
Very nice house!
The house was very nice. It is a short drive to the beach. The public beach access was nice. My daughter and I used the kayaks but they were a little small for my husband. It was easy to put them at the dock.
Owners are extremely organized, very quick to help with questions, and super nice to have a vacation there. Their directions, contract, and super in-house booklet was very helpful. Couldn’t of asked for anything more. Great cul-de-sac location. Had lots of fun crabbing off their new dock. Close by local restaurants/ stores were convenient.
Aussie Family Reunion
Had a great stay in the house, lots of room and enjoyed the kayaking Great family place
Perfect choice for us
We are so glad we chose this home. Loved the location on the canal. The owner got right back with us on any question we had. It is a beautiful home with plenty of room for five of us. We took advantage of the kayaks and also rode our bikes to the tennis courts and used them two days. We would definitely come back. This home had everything we wanted.
Amazing get away with friends!!
We arrived Thursday afternoon for a long weekend with friends. We were greeted with a sweet note and gift bag of goodies. The house was beautiful! The beds were comfy and I have never seen a kitchen that was so well equipped! The weather was perfect for sitting on the deck and having a nice glass of wine. Hostess was amazing! I had a question and she responded quickly! Highly recommended!
Colington Harbour, one of the best-kept secrets in the Outer Banks, is a deep water quiet family community located on Colington Island. Boat access to the Ocean is through Oregon Inlet; approx 30 min. by water to the south. Our home is located in desirable location with quick access to harbour & sound. The community has soundside sandy beaches, large shade trees, pavilion picnic areas w/grills & playground. It is visible from our home across the harbour but is about a mile away by road. Guests are welcome to use the 2 provided kayaks to reach the soundside beach. The boat launch ramp & pool is in same area. Amenities include an Olympic sized pool, baby pool, snack bar & lounge chairs. Tennis & basketball courts are also available in the neighborhood. Kill Devil Hills Beach (Atlantic Ocean) is 4 miles east of our home. The public beach amenities there include 2 large parking areas & bathhouse. A convenience store & Dairy Queen are within a 1-2 minute walk from the beach parking area.
