Lynn Hoffmann purchased this House in 2010
Why Lynn Hoffmann chose Duck
We've enjoyed vacationing in Duck and the Outer Banks for many years and believe Four Seasons neighborhood is the finest one in Duck due to the ideal location and it's unique style and year round amenities. It's an easy drive from the Mid Atlantic area one hour south of Norfolk, Va and the Airport. We also own VRBO # 56291 in Corolla Light, the 2010 Best Resort Community in North Carolina.
What makes this House unique
Where to begin .... You can take it easy or Go, Go, Go. depending onyour mood, companions and the time of the year. Staying home is a pleasure due to the comfort and style of Life o' Rily'. There is a great variety of scenic, cultural, natural, sport and relaxation options. A reasonable drive from major midatlantic cities but feels a world away. This area is becoming known as an event destination for family reunions, weddings and friends retreats. Our home accomodates large groups well and Four Seasons has year round amenities. We love walking or riding bikes around Duck Village. The natural beauty of the area is valued and protected and 'smart growth' is becoming the practice to limit over building and commercialization. The town's walking trails, shops and restaurants, Soundfront Park and boardwalk add a lot to the enjoyment and convenience of a visit to Duck .

The home is exactly as pictured and described. Equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishing, perfect!
We took 5 teenagers for spring break to this wonderful home and our first time in Outer Banks. The community in which it’s located is wonderful, so much to do just there. The town of Duck is right around the corner and the shops and eateries satisfied us all.
Communication prior to our arrival with Lynn was so pleasant, with emails suggesting activities and recommendations in the local area. The home was perfect for all 7 of us, well maintained and furnished, clean and inviting. Of the areas and homes we had to choose from, this was the best choice by far.
After 20 years of visits we know a great home
After over 20 years (we should have bought that first year:), of visits we have stayed at some amazing and some not so amazing homes. This was clearly in the great places category. We loved the location, central to both club house (key for those like us who stay in the non-beach swimming months and still close enough to walk to the beach with a cool breeze and sunshine. The owners and support folks were very helpful and in contact and engaged in making sure our stay was great.
It was a treat to working with you too! Thanks for your considerate comments. We work hard to make Life o’ Rily a
“Great Place”. So glad you thought so and enjoyed Duck 😎�
Perfect home for large family gathering
Life o' Rily was the perfect choice for our extended family of 18 - from a 2 year old to her 84 year old grandmother! With 8 bedrooms and private baths for all, the large, light-filled great room on the top floor, multiple decks with tables and seating, the game room and pool area, Life o' Rily gave us plenty of room to stretch out comfortably. Everything was spotlessly clean upon our arrival and the wifi worked well. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook for our large gang and 2 dishwashers made clean up easy. We were happy we followed your recommendation to heat the pool for our early October stay- we all spent a lot of time jumping (and sliding) between the hot tubs and pool. The closet with bikes, beach chairs and pool toys was a plus. The Four Seasons Community fitness center and pool, convenient access to the beach and the easy bike ride to Duck gave us lots of options to keep everyone happy! Working with Lynn via email was easy, pleasant and prompt. It was a perfect week in OBX celebrating our son's wedding - topped off with spectacular weather, a full moon and the best accommodations! :-) Thanks so much! We hope to be back!
Has everything you need...and more!
It was clean, organized and had everything for the entire family to enjoy. Kitchen was all labeled to make finding things even easier. Kids enjoyed the slide and adults the hot tubs. Had two hicups during our stay but were quickly resolved once we called. Loved the responsiveness at all times (before, during and after our stay). Would definitely recommend without hesitation. Very close to town too
Good to know you had a good time at Life o' Rily and all ages were satisfied.
We work hard trying not to "hiccups' but things can happen anyways. I'm glad
our property manager answered your call promptly took good care of you.
Hiccups are one thing - indigestion is completely unacceptable!!!
Thanks for your review, M., please come again.
Life o' Rily was everything we had hoped to enable our large family to make our vacation a wonderful memory. It had been years since we could get schedules planned together (ages 73 to 2 -- all 18 of us) and we were not disappointed. The home was clean and homey and well supplied -- in fact, we have never stayed in a rental with so many kitchen items and the 2 dishwashers made life easy for dinner cleanup. There were activities for all of us -- beach, kayak touring, jet skiis, swimming inside and out, restaurants, and local entertainment nearby. Any of our wishes or needs were met PROMPTLY by the staff we were assigned to. Just can't say enough about the convenience of "Four Seasons Community" being located in the center of Duck and one of our family members summed it up with "this vacation home couldn't be any more perfect for a large family"!!
We aim for perfection! Great to know we hit the mark for You & Yours.
We feel the same way about the Four Seasons community and its location,
it the best place in Duck. Thanks for being there - L & R
Second Year - As Good or Better than the First!
Our four-generation group returned to Life O'Rily for a second year in early August for another wonderful week. We noticed some added touches and investments in the property since last year which show the TLC that owner Lynn puts into it. Once again, we loved the place (and the bathrooms for every bedroom - so nice!!) and found ourselves hanging at the pool and hot tubs (two of them which is awesome) and watching the whole family from great-grandpa to the two 3-year olds on the slide and having a great time. Golf at Kilmarlic, Duck Donuts, walks on the beach all filled our days. We have a conflict for 2018 but have already booked our return visit for 2019! Thanks, Lynn, for another fabulous week in Duck!
I wish I saw Great Grandpa go down the slide!! Thanks for your review -
It's a true joy to us to have extended families getting together and having a great time at Life o' Rily. It's the incentive and the reward for putting a lot of time & effort into annual off season maintenace & upgrades and having a local team that helps us keep things in shape during the busy rental season. Our family is scattered all over the USA; our annual vacation week is the only time we're all together....it's got to be good!
