"We had another great stay at the Happy Crab!"
"Close to the beach, it is roomy, and the kitchen is well stocked."
"It was clean, well taken care of, the pool and pool area were amazing, not to mention that this house had everything needed for you beach trip. All we need was food and our clothes. We can't wait to go back!"
"The Happy Crab is the most comfortable, organized, & nicest cottage in OBX!"
"We were 6 adults and a 9 month old. 2 bedrooms not used but for staging. This gave us ample room to all have space. The outdoor amenities under the house and pool area were excellent. We spent a lot of time there. If we returned to OBX again would rent this home."
"We love the Happy Crab. It brought our family together for the first time in 20 months. The owners have thought of everything you could need and it feels like home. We all had an amazing stay."
"Loved this home. We have four young children and a pup. We were 4 adults and 4 kids. Perfect new clean amenities. Easy barefoot walk to beach. Fun to play horseshoes. Nice neighborhood to walk dog. Fun clean large pool for a swim day or evening ( pool light and patio lights) with Plenty of privacy. Our ONLY disappointment is that it’s booked for next year and can’t seem to find a week for us to go back! would book this again in a heartbeat."
"My family has been enjoying the Happy Crab every summer since 2012. We love having the pool and the beach just a short walk away. The house is well equip. It was a little strange not to have the extra touches due to the virus but we can only hope they will be back in the near future. The owners take pride in their home to make comfortable and welcoming for their guest."
"Everything about this home is perfect! Beautifully furnished, immaculate, completely stocked kitchen, excellent location with excellent views, and the privacy of the side lot for playing games of corn hole. Plenty of space inside and out to relax together, or work remotely (which several of our group needed to do.) Short bike ride to Duck for donuts or across the island for a sunset view. We would be lucky to book this house again next year!"
