  • Weekend Getaway

    "Me and my husband enjoyed Shrimp-N-Grits for a long birthday weekend and it was perfect. The home is beautiful, clean, well stocked and in the perfect location to access all areas of the Outer Banks. The owners replied promptly to any questions that we had and made the whole rental process effortless. I'm looking forward to another stay at Shrimp-N-Grits!"

  • A Perfect Respite In A Beautiful Home!

    "I simply cannot speak highly enough about our experience with the owner and the home itself. The owner checked in with me multiple times on Friday as I traveled down to the island and like a caring parent, made sure all was well with me. As a 30-something woman traveling alone for the majority of my trip, this created a sense of comfort that was maintained throughout our visit. John is a professional yet caring owner and his focus on giving us a wonderful weekend was unparalleled. The home was EXACTLY as described and fit our needs to a tee. The kitchen was beautifully equipped, clean, and the living area fully stocked with books, magazines, games, and above all, comfort. The bedrooms and bath were beautifully maintained. From arrival to departure, we had no complaints. We absolutely would rent here again. I think the only constructive criticism I can offer is really pointed more at guests than the owner - and that is, while I was ecstatic to see multiple trays of ice frozen upon our arrival, they were all made from the tap and my 30+ years of OBX living has taught me that drinking water and ice should be done with bottled water. I made sure to remake our ice with bottled water and I would encourage other visitors to do the same. After we cleaned the property (a task I at first felt might be daunting but my OCD kicked in and my bf told me I managed to get it cleaner than when we started and that's a feat since it was spotless when we arrived!) the owner graciously offered to allow us to keep our car parked at the home while we spent the day at the beach before leaving. It's this kind of personalized hospitality that puts the OBX Fun House a notch above the rest and the reason that we wouldn't hesitate for a moment to rent here again. Many thanks to the owner for a FANTASTIC weekend in this wonderfully equipped and comfortable home. We simply couldn't have asked for more! :)"

  • Dream location for families!

    "We knew we picked the right spot for our getaway as we entered the condo directly onto the balcony and saw the beautiful ocean view, beach chairs to use at our convenience and, extra bonus for our kiddos, foldup Lightning McQueen and Finding Nemo kid chairs... The trip was already off to a great start :) Our stay in Kill Devil Hills was perfect, end of story. The condo was more than enough room for my husband and me and our two young kids, and it was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials for cooking and grilling. We spent our days enjoying the beach, the great pool and my husband and my favorite during the kids' nap time, the balcony! On the one rainy day of our stay, we made the quick trip over to Roanake Island to visit the aquarium and teaching our kids to play CandyLand, one of the many kid-friendly goodies in the closet. We are so thankful for the much-needed getaway and will always remember our first, wonderful trip to the OBX!"

  • Wonderful Vacation

    "My family and I recently stayed at " Monumental View" for a Mini vacation. Kathy was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. We even had last minute changes of plans and she worked with us to make this a smooth transition. We would highly recommend staying here to friends and family and look forward to many more trips to Kill Devil.The house is very inviting and nicely furnished. Our teens loved the pool table! The house is located on a quiet street without a lot of through traffic so the kids could play outside. We were able to walk to many of our souvenir destinations and also a couple trips to conveniently located Dairy Queen (right across the street). The view from the top deck is amazing. The Wright Brother's monument is beautiful a night. We look forward to vacationing here again in 2015!"
