Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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!!

Why the Owner Chose Duck, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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!
