About Brenda Campbell
I am an Real Estate Agent in Katy, TX. I try my best to think of all the 'little' items that make a vacation the best, like supplying sand chairs, umbrella's, having a well appointed kitchen etc. The number of repeat guests has been awesome! They take care of the house as if it was there own. Year after year I am amazed as how wonderful these folks take care of our house.
Brenda Campbell purchased this House in 1996
Why Brenda Campbell chose Duck
We love the Outer Banks (been vacationing here for 25 years), but Duck is the best location! Easy walk to the charming village with great shops and wonderful places to dine. If it's a movie or mini golf you want, it's just a short drive up the highway. Then head back home to the relaxing area and away from the craziness up the road! Beaches are uncrowded and clean. Duck is also a very family oriented spot.
What makes this House unique
We call our home "My Happy Place". It feels like home not a house. We are located in one of Duck's most popular communities "Colony By The Sea". Private parking at the beach. No public access to the beach. Children can ride bikes, play tennis, playground and basketball courts. Our pictures are recent and we keep our home in excellent condition.

A great family trip in November
We loved this house! The kitchen was well-stocked, and the open floor plan upstairs meant we could all easily be together while some of us cooked or cleaned. And the location was great!
Great place to stay
No complaints at all. The house was beautiful, with a great location right by the beach
Our favorite family vacation
We had a wonderful week at My Happy Place and in Duck. I loved how close the house is to town; we were a short walk away and we took advantage of that almost every day. The house was clean, well-appointed and Brenda was so responsive and helpful. The house is just also really colorful and cute with thoughtful details. It felt the way a beach vacation house should feel. We were there with our two young kids and my husband's parents. There was plenty of room for all of us. We ended up driving to the end of the road and parking near Sea Colony to get to the beach as it was just easier than lugging all of our stuff. We saw deer casually walking through the backyard a few evenings. The hot tub was a great place to unwind at the end of the day. Overall, a great week with lots of happy memories made.
Great Ladies weekend!
Well stocked house.
Loved the hot tub!!!
We hope to make it back again next year!!!
Perfect Location in Duck !
Our family had a wonderful time in Duck. It is within walking distance to the boardwalk and shops, and a brief walk to the beach. The community pool was very nice. The house was clean and beautifully decorated. Brenda was very easy to work with.
The only suggestion that I would make would be that the community association should sweep the stairs that go down to the beach. There was so much sand on them that it made it difficult to climb up and down them at times, especially if you are carrying a lot of beach gear. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely go back to " My Happy Place" !
Pictures are accurate, short walk to the beach, house is very clean and has everything you need. It is at a great location in Duck. It is a short walk to the stores and boardwalk. Also, there was great communication with the owner. Would definitely stay there again.
Just about everything you need is a short walk into town. We love walking in the mornings to Duck Donut. They have the best donuts in the world. We love also going to The Cantina for Mexican Food, it over looks the Sound and Roadside Bar & Grill serves great sea food and other local favorites. Tons of restaurants and shopping.
