Lynn Hoffmann purchased this house in 2010

Why Lynn Hoffmann chose Duck

We've enjoyed vacationing in Duck and the Outer Banks for many years and believe Four Seasons neighborhood is the finest one in Duck due to the ideal location and it's unique style and year round amenities. It's an easy drive from the Mid Atlantic area one hour south of Norfolk, Va and the Airport. We also own VRBO # 56291 in Corolla Light, the 2010 Best Resort Community in North Carolina.

What makes this house unique

Where to begin .... You can take it easy or Go, Go, Go. depending onyour mood, companions and the time of the year. Staying home is a pleasure due to the comfort and style of Life o' Rily'. There is a great variety of scenic, cultural, natural, sport and relaxation options. A reasonable drive from major midatlantic cities but feels a world away. This area is becoming known as an event destination for family reunions, weddings and friends retreats. Our home accomodates large groups well and Four Seasons has year round amenities. We love walking or riding bikes around Duck Village. The natural beauty of the area is valued and protected and 'smart growth' is becoming the practice to limit over building and commercialization. The town's walking trails, shops and restaurants, Soundfront Park and boardwalk add a lot to the enjoyment and convenience of a visit to Duck .

Guestbook comments from the owner

" I just spent a great week at the beach in your house. Loved it! Our family normally stays down the street but this year we were at your place. Loved it...May many more people enjoy your house as much as we did!

Living the Life o' Rily!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our first week in the Outer Banks at this wonderful home and had one of our best vacation stays EVER! We have a large extended family (18) and the accommodations were perfect. The home was immaculate when we arrived. The Wi Fi was fast and worked for all of our devices. The pool was just the right size and the kids loved the slide! We liked that it was a short walk or shuttle to the beach and the community pool was also very nice. We decided after just a few days to rent the home for next year!

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

Life O' Riley was the perfect place for our vacation this year. There were 13 of us – 7 adults with 6 children, 8 years old and under. The house was clean, well furnished, and had the right amount of space. The owner and property manager answered all our questions in a timely manner and were extremely easy to work with.

This was the third year we've rented a house in the Four Seasons neighborhood, and so far this was our favorite. We hope to return next year!

The home is exactly as pictured and described. Equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishing, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We took 5 teenagers for spring break to this wonderful home and our first time in Outer Banks. The community in which it’s located is wonderful, so much to do just there. The town of Duck is right around the corner and the shops and eateries satisfied us all.

Communication prior to our arrival with Lynn was so pleasant, with emails suggesting activities and recommendations in the local area. The home was perfect for all 7 of us, well maintained and furnished, clean and inviting. Of the areas and homes we had to choose from, this was the best choice by far.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure working with you. Rich and I are so pleased that Life o' Rily was a welcoming headquarters and the perfect ambassador for your first visit to Duck and the Outer Banks. We hope you'll be back to Duck and Life o' Rily again or try out one of our homes in Corolla. When Spring Break comes later in the spring and the pool is open there's even more to do at the house! Thanks for your thoughtful review, K.C., we greatly appreciate it.

After 20 years of visits we know a great home

  • 5 of 5

After over 20 years (we should have bought that first year:), of visits we have stayed at some amazing and some not so amazing homes. This was clearly in the great places category. We loved the location, central to both club house (key for those like us who stay in the non-beach swimming months and still close enough to walk to the beach with a cool breeze and sunshine. The owners and support folks were very helpful and in contact and engaged in making sure our stay was great.
