Located on the first floor in building A, you have the largest deck in the community and a front row seat for ocean views and beautiful sunrises. Only 150 steps gets your toes in the sand!

The courtyard area includes grilling stations, picnic tables and plenty of grassy area for kids of all ages to run around and play. A great area to meet new friends and share a meal if you like.

The Village of Duck is a short 15 minute walk where you can enjoy beautiful sunsets, spectacular restaurants, water sports, unique shopping, walk the soundside boardwalk for shopping and birdwatching, sip coffee, buy books, take yoga classes and so much more. Park your car and enjoy the freedom of walking everywhere!

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 Northern Coast & Outer Banks

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!

Romantic Getaway for Couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited here in March. The week before we arrived it was in the 70's but the day we got there it had gone down to 35. We enjoyed the visit anyway as the condo was comfortable and cozy. The day we left we finally had a chance to sit out on the balcony for a few minutes and enjoy the only warm sunshine of the weekend. The ocean view from the deck and the living room cannot be beat. I would recommend this property and would book again on a visit to Duck.

Was a beautiful view and very comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The sunrises were gorgeous right from the comfort of your own private deck! What a peaceful place to be and close to some great restaurants. We were very impressed and will certainly be back!

Perfect Beach Escape!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I visited OBX in mid November and this condo was the perfect place for us! It had everything we needed for a weekend away and was incredibly comfortable. You really can't beat the ocean and pool views from the deck! The owners were also tremendous to work with and helped out a lot pre-arrival. I definitely recommend anyone to stay at this property, I know I'll be back!
