About Dottie Berg

I vacationed with my brother and his family in Duck during the summer of 1999. It was love at first sight for me and I knew that someday I wanted my own get-away there. That day finally came in 2005 when I purchased this unit. Being a Marylander, I was accustomed to the hustle and bustle of Ocean City, MD. I had no idea such a place as Duck even existed. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Dottie Berg purchased this condo in 2005

Why Dottie Berg chose Outer Banks

Colony by the Sea is a hidden gem on the OBX. It allows you to experience the lull of the waves from your balcony as you gaze out over the ocean. Duck is unlike any other beach town I have visited. It is quaint, quiet, laid back and just plain inviting. There are so many activities to keep you busy, or if you prefer to just relax from it all, there is ample space for that also.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the balcony of this 3rd floor is spectacular. The sound of the ocean provides instant tranquility and is the best medicine in the world! The balcony is a great place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. The community of Colony by the Sea has well-maintained grounds and buildings close to the village of Duck and right on the ocean. It features a pool, tennis and basketball courts, and quiet walking areas. Near the pool there are picnic tables and grills where you can relax and prepare your favorite grilled dishes, be it hamburgers, steaks or roasts.!

Fantastic stay and place

  • 4 of 5

Booking was incredibly easy and Dottie was awesome to deal with. Great value for the location and view, it was beautiful to hear the waves crashing as we slept! The condo was very clean and with a fully functioning kitchen, it was a wonderful destination for our stay. One word of advice, the price paid for the awesome views is 3 flights of stairs, pack accordingly and make sure you don't forget anything in the car. :-)

The condo was just OK. ..nothing special.

  • 1 of 5

The vacation was the week of hurricane Matthew so I debated on canceling but decided to go. We arrived very early Tues. morning 10/4/16 and ended up leaving on Thursday afternoon 10/6/16 due to the weather we were having (rainy) and the weather forcast for the next few days which was more of the same and Matthew expecting to hit on Saturday into Sunday. Not the relaxing vacation I was hoping for!!! It was a bust and we took a $$$loss.

Great location! Comfortable bed.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Dotties place. The bed was very comfortable and the view was excellent. Overall well equipped. It is a bit of a climb ( 48 steps) so might be difficult for elderly or disabled individuals.

We would highly recommend!!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely amazing and I can say we will definitely go back in the future! The location was perfect and the condo was amazing, I can say for myself the pictures on this website do not do this condo justice! Everything went so smoothly from booking back near January until our stay in august! The condo and the grounds were very well kept and clean our whole stay and everyone was very friendly. Not one bad experience once the whole week! Thank you for our wonderful stay!

Great Ocean View

  • 4 of 5

This rental has pluses and minuses but the oceanfront view simply cannot be beat.

The location is fabulous, the beach is perfect, the pool is great too. The condo complex had plenty of available parking and was surprisingly peaceful -- very family friendly. Duck has good restaurants and shops .

I only give this unit 4 stars, though, because the interior is ... tired. The single bed in the hallway is terrifically uncomfortable, so much so that my 12 year old could not sleep in it (and she can sleep anywhere!). It's wrapped in plastic (I guess to prevent kid-accident damage). We moved her out to the foldout bed and that was almost comically worse! We had to have her sleep at the foot of the bed because the bed rolls down at a noticeable angle -- imagine your head way down and your legs high. Both of these things are relatively easy fixes which goes to my comment about the unit feeling tired. It seems like it was once in great shape but hasn't received much TLC in recent years.

We had trouble with the master bathroom (the owner responded positively and immediately -- she was great) and someone did come out to look at in less than 12 hours.. It made a terrific noise so we didn't even use that shower. Also, there are two coin operated washers and dryers on the ground level but the washing machine was broken while we were there so we had to drive to a laundromat in Kill Devil Hills, which was a bit of an inconvenience (but our choice).

Yes, there are a lot of stairs! I agree, though, that it's a good thing when you're on vacation. We did not mind the climb.

In sum, it's fine. A genuine B -- an A view with a C+ condo.
