Great visit for the three of us!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Outer Banks immensely. The locals and visitors alike were very friendly and informative. Our stay at the Beach Crab home was extremely clean and quite during our stay. My friends are interested in visiting this year or next year again.

Peaceful family/friends vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Crab is our new favorite beach house in obx. It is in a great location, beautiful views across the road can be seen from top deck. House was very clean and comfortable and had just about everything we needed for a good stay. (Kitchen needs, chairs, etc.) It's within walking distance of our favorite public beach access (1st street) so we spent most days at the beach, then close to all the other sightseeing nearby. Owner is very responsive to questions, we will definitely be staying here again, thanks!

So Fun, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome time, the Beach crab is centrally located, and the beach access is a very short walk. We were able to get to anywhere we wanted quickly and easily and the upper deck was perfect for sitting outside int the evenings.

Great week at the Beach Crab

  • 5 of 5

Extremely easy rental process. Everything happened exactly as advertised. Accommodations clean, comfortable and spacious. Super location. Walking distance to beach and Goombays. Especially enjoyed the upper deck and the views in the evening.

Awesome week at the Crab House

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning of the rental, the owner made everything so easy and it started our vacation on the right foot. We arrived to a spotless house with all the accommodations we expected, based on our conversations. The house was a stone's throw to the public accesses to the beach. Everything was in working and spotless condition.

Highly recommend this.....

Stress-Free Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The stay at the, "Beach Crab" could not have been better. I arrived at the property with my party of 9 and was pleasantly surprised about the amount of space the open lay-out allowed. There was plenty of space for everyone to settle in, and great common areas as well. We spent most of our time on one of the three decks overlooking the beach. Everything was in working order, and David was great about his response time when I did need to contact him. A beautiful house, ocean-view, and a classic OBX Goombay dinner only a 5 minute walk away from the property, there wasn't anything more you could ask for!
