Vacationing on the Outer Banks with our families as children, we knew as adults we just could not stay away. We love our quiet neighborhood, away from all the beach noise. Colington Harbor has truly become our 'Home away from home'.

Beautiful property!

  • 4 of 5

The home was nice, the views were beautiful, the dock and yard were stunning! The community pool was great! This place felt like a home not just a house. Wanda the owner was very responsive and nice! The only negative was that the washing machine broke right before we got there so I had to bring home 2 bags of laundry to do before heading back to work. Wanda was upfront about it and even had more towels brought to us midweek. We will be back!

Fall into Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was so relaxing and peaceful. Waking up to beautiful sunrise and them relaxing watching the most beautiful sunsets on the island. The cottage was well stocked and very clean. The beds were also very relaxing. I have to mention how much I enjoyed reading, napping and just relaxing on the sun room. Will be back this year

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 couples in our 60's and 70's! Sounds Like Heaven was everything we needed and much more! It was very clean and looked just like the pictures. Wanda was great to work with, both before and after our stay. We explored from one tip of Outer Banks to the other! We ate delicious meals at Awful Arthurs(2x), Black Pelican, and Tortugas Lie. We all would love to come back again some day to this beautiful home!!
