~ Affordable ~ Ocean View ~ Easy Access ~ Plan Now!!!

Picture this: You’ve walked three miles in the sun, read two chapters of your current novel, found 4 pieces of sea glass and a sand dollar, sipped an icy cold drink, and it’s only 11:11am! The temperature is 87 degrees, a balmy breeze caresses your skin, and there’s a quiet sound of the surf in the background. You have nothing pressing but a card game on the deck later, so you close your eyes and dream of tropical delights! Sound good to you? This day and more are coming your way when you commit to rent this OBX condo in Duck, NC.

This 1 Bedroom, 2 Bath 750 square foot Condo is perfect for a couple, small family, or for just you. People come to the OBX to go to the beach! This is all that you need to enjoy family times together in the sand and under the sun. Build a sand castle, romp in the waves, collect sea shells and a super tan!

You'll be planning your return trip even before you leave the OBX!

About Nancy

I love the OBX, actually lived there for 9 years before returning to the real world in Norfolk, VA.

Nancy purchased this condo in 2004

Why Nancy chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

I bought this condo as a home when I fell in love with the serenity of this gorgeous area.

What makes this condo unique

Family times mean so much to me. Each year we spend quality time on the beach together. There's no agenda, no time frame, no demands other than following your heart. OK, so maybe there is a small competition to see who collects the most sea glass and the best tan!

A perfect vacation at the Sandpiper

  • 5 of 5

Nancy was so helpful & quick to respond particularly after Hurricane Matthew. We spent a beautiful week in Duck & much of it was the great location & cozy Sandpiper at Colony by the Sea. Nancy has thought of everything you might need & stocked it for you. We had beautiful sunrises & sunsets & easy beach access. We loved Duck Donuts and the Blue Point for lunch as she suggested. The master bed was super comfortable & everything was well maintained. Just be prepared to climb the 3 flights to enjoy the views from Sandpiper. But then you can eat all the seafood at so many great convenient restaurants. Be sure to take a tour to see the wild Spanish horses right on the beach in Corolla.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you didn't let a little hurricane like Matthew keep you away from the OBX this October, Marty! The weather was perfect and the town proved resilient! Just goes to show you that the OBX is the best place to visit any time of year! Thank you for trusting Mother Nature!

Five stars is not enough

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just visited the Outer Banks for the very first time and we stayed at the Sandpiper. We could not have had a better vacation! The condo is beautiful, comfortable and well appointed and Nancy is awesome to work with. The weather didn't cooperate as fully as we'd have liked, but that didn't matter in the end-the NC Aquarium was the perfect place to spend one rainy day and the Sandpiper was perfect for the other. The rest of the time, we split between time on the beach or in the pool and wandering the area. I strongly recommend the dolphin tour offered by Cap'n Johnny in Manteo. The Sunset Grill right in Duck has great meals and a great view. If you'd rather stay in, grab some fresh fish and a bottle of wine. The kitchen has everything you'll need for a good meal. Make sure to enjoy it on the balcony! The best way to start a day? Enjoy sunrise on the beach then head on over to Duck Donuts! Prior to arrival, we had a couple of destinations in mind for next year's vacation, but now we are seriously thinking of just going back to Duck and to the Sandpiper. No matter who you are-young family, older couple, adventurer, beach-sitter or why you are in Duck-vacation, wedding, honeymoon, girl's getaway, this is the perfect property in the best location you can imagine! Not only will I recommend this to friends and family, I already have multiple times. I just hope they won't take "our" week! :) Thank you, Nancy, for the contributions you made to this awesome vacation. I truly look forward to working with you again!

Perfect family location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Sandpiper in summer 2016. The location is absolutely perfect! We spent the majority of our time at the private beach and pool. Both were never crowded and very clean, and took just two minutes to walk to. There is a restroom and outdoor shower next to the pool - very convenient as well.

The Colony by the Sea complex is older, but very well maintained and clean. The condo itself was updated, tidy, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed for the week. Kitchen was well stocked with necessities to prep meals. Couch and bed were comfortable. Hall bunks were perfect for our kids. Bring nightlights if your kids need them, as well as bedding, towels, toilet paper, and paper towels. Four beach chairs are provided. The condo looks just as it does in the photos. It is the perfect size for couples and small families.

Be mindful that while this is on the 3rd floor, there are actually 4 flights of steps since the building is on stilts. No elevators. We were fine with this but it could present a problem to those with health issues, especially in the heat.

Nancy was wonderful to work with. She was quick to respond, helpful, and thoughtful. Very friendly as well! Thanks for providing us with a great spot to enjoy a memorable and relaxing family vacation!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time! Great location - the condo is right on the beach and in the middle of Duck and near Kitty Hawk, and Corolla. There is an outdoor pool that has plenty of lounge chairs. Inside of the condo - neat and clean. There are even beach chairs! Nancy is a great owner. She is very responsive, helpful, thoughtful, considerate and pleasant. Will definitely go back!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My young son and I had a wonderful time during our stay at the Sandpiper. The place was spotless and very well equipped. I am picky when I stay away from home and this truly felt like our home away from home. Nancy was wonderful. We ate our meals on the balcony and we took day trips to Manteo and Corolla. I was reluctant to pay for the wild horse tour in Carova, but what a great surprise for the little guy! Bouncing down the beach in an open air ATV was so much fun- the horses were an added bonus. Our nightly strolls consisted of walking directly to the stores- no car needed! We saw a fox and deer. I will have many lasting memories of this fabulous vacation.

Owner's Response: So happy to hear that you and your son had a well deserved vacation together on the OBX, Jeanmarie! I lived in Carova Beach for 10+ years where the sand was my driveway and the horses were my nearest neighbors! I'm glad you experienced Mother Nature's beauty in the raw! The beach brings magical memories that last a life time!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay and found Nancy to be extremely easy to work with and responsive. The condo itself is beautifully maintained and well equipped. Making the arrangements was super easy and Nancy was easy to communicate with and truly cared about making our vacation a success. We love coming to Duck and plan to return to this property in the future.
