Why Marc Delbusso chose Colington Harbour

We have been vacationing in the Outer Banks since the 1980's. We purchased this property in 2012 and performed a total restoration. We love the community and love the water view from the front porch.

Cute house & nicely updated. Great porch with sound view, short trip to beaches & pool

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay. The owner was great about communicating during the booking process & before our stay. The house was great: clean, nicely decorated & all amenities as described in the listing. We loved hanging out on the front porch & watching the waves. The sound-side beach was fantastic & not crowded. The location is a little removed from the main highway & restaurants/shops/etc of Kitty Hawk & Kill Devil Hills, but we didn't mind the drive, and the quiet of the neighborhood & view from the porch was worth it!

Everything you wanted and more....

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and myself just returned from our stay at this great beach house. Although the weather did not cooperate, we were very grateful that we had such a clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated home to spend our time in. I have been coming to the OBX area since I was a child. Colington is definitely a great place to stay w/it’s quick drive of 5 min. to the beach, quiet neighborhood, community pool/tennis courts, safe area to ride your bikes or simply walk the area without having to worry about dangerous traffic on the beach road. We enjoy the fact that you are away from all of the crowds when you need to be, yet only a few minutes from everything you want to access. We loved the 24/7 beautiful breezes coming off the bay while sitting on the porch of the Delbusso cottage. Marc & Melissa couldn’t have been more accommodating!! My experience of using VRBO to rent cottages over the past few years is hands down the way to go compared to renting through the big realty companies (where you are just a number). Simply put-you will not be disappointed with a stay at this beach house. Thank you Marc & Melissa for sharing your beautiful home away from home with us!

Charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a wonderful time last week at this well-kept, updated cottage in the Collington Harbour neighborhood. It was a GREAT location for us! Central in the OBX to visit all the places we love, while having a soundfront view right from the porch. Also the Collington Neighborhood pool is nice, and there is a small soundfront access with a quaint beach and even a playground. Our kids loved it! It is an open concept cottage with many nice updates and perfect for our two kids. We will definitely be renting again! Thanks so much for a great place to stay!

Amazing rental property!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family had a wonderful stay at the OBX Beach Retreat. The house was clean, comfortable and had many great amenities.

We appreciated the lovely seaside decor, large selection of videos, games and fully stocked kitchen. All basics like dishwasher tabs and hand soap were provided. The house also had a beach buggy. In addition it had at least 6 beach chairs and several boogie boards. Instead of cooking indoors we made dinner on the brand new gas grill a couple of nights.

The front porch was our favorite hang out in the evening. We sat there taking in the view of the sound, chatting and having cold beverages after a hot day on the beach.

The owners were very responsive to any inquiries we had. The house instructions they have left were clear and easy.

We will definitely come back in the future and recommend this rental highly.
