About Jennifer & David Meredith

Dave and I (Jen) live in Fairfax, Virginia and have been making the trek to Duck since we were married in 2001 (Jen has been going since 1966 - well at least to Nags Head). Dave grew up in Buena Vista, VA (by way of Arkansas) and I grew up in Fairfax City. Even though OBX is a little furher from our home than other beaches - it is totally worth it. We hope that you can share our love for Duck and Colony by the Sea!!

Jennifer & David Meredith purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jennifer & David Meredith chose Duck

There was NO doubt that we wanted to buy a property in Colony by the Sea - it was just a matter of which one. Having lugged suitcases up 3 flights of stairs (and a bunch of other stuff), been so far back we could hardly see the ocean and spending time in condos that were just not clean or homey enough - we finally found the right one!

We love that we are right on the ocean, one floor up and our parking space is right next to the stairs. Coming from the traffic in Northern Virginia, we are MOST happy with the fact that we don't have to drive anywhere!! What a treat.

What makes this condo unique

Duck is very different than the other OBX beaches and other beaches on the East Coast. We like to call it our sleepy little village in the midst of other craziness! Most of the homes down here are SO big, it was hard for us to find a place that was right (and affordable) for just the two of us. I don't even think most people know that Colony by the Sea exists (and we should keep it that way!). Our little place is perfect for a couple, girls/guys weekend and small families. The deck is magnificent and now that we have all new deck furniture - comfy cozy!

A great place to stay and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

Back for our second year and we liked it so much that we added a second week. A delightful condo, truly steps from the beach. All the comforts of home, everything is exactly as described. We were there in the early Fall; a very peaceful and quiet location, yet access to everything you need in Duck or even more in the larger shopping centers just a few miles away. The sunrises from the deck are spectacular as are the sunsets (an easy walk or quick bike) on the Sound. Good biking paths in all directions for those so inclined. We'll be back again!

Relaxing vacation at an affordable price!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our vacation at "At Last"! The condo was just the right size for the 2 of us and could easily accommodate 3 more people if need be. It was an amazing value being right on the beach and walking distance to the center of Duck. We would definitely stay there again!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

At Last provided everything we needed for a week of relaxation. Jennifer & Dave have a nicely decorated comfortable environment that leaves you feeling at home. The view from the deck was great and the walks into Duck daily are a must. Thanking you for sharing!

Perfect place for a relaxing vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Duck and the condo was perfect for us!! At Last has a great view of the beach and a close beach access to watch the sunrise, search for seashells and watch the dolphins play. We were within walking distance to the boardwalk to watch the sunsets, do some shopping and grab a bite to eat!! We can’t wait to go back and do it all again!!
