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.!

A real gem

Perfect place for my hubby, our 5yo, and me. Ocean view is gorgeous! The stairs up to the unit weren't bad at all. Colony by the Sea had everything we needed. Nice community too.

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!!

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!
