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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: 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 19 and 15. 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. As a family we also enjoy skiing too.

Why the Owner Chose Colington Harbour, Kill Devil Hills, NC, USA:
Stan and I have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for almost 30 years now. We discovered Colington Harbour back in 2005 afer 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 and a soft real estate market we decide to invest in a second home property. One day hope to retire at our home.
