We had a wonderful week at the Happy Crab. The home is beautifully decorated. It has a great view of the ocean with easy access to the beach. The owners have thought of everything. There is nothing missing in this house. It was very comfortable for our multi-generational family. This was only our second visit to Duck but our daughter and son-in-law have been vacationing there for several years. We all agreed that this was the best house we have ever stayed in. We highly recommend this rental.

The Happy Crab is a very comfortable home. We have enjoyed it for a number of years now and plan to stay with this house again next year. I love the new stove.

My family has been vacationing at the Happy Crab for 4 years now and love it! We got to meet the owners this year and they really tried to help make our vacation as enjoyable as possible- we really appreciated their hospitality. And the new kitchen! I have never stayed in such a nice beach house -the pool area is such a great area to hang out on a windy day! We hope to return next year!

This home was in a great location. It was absolutely the cleanest property and the owners paid attention to every little detail. I could not be happier with the property! I have booked the property for two more weeks! I'm so happy to have found this property!
