About Carri Funk

We decided back in 2006 that we were going to build a home in the Outer Banks. This had been a dream of my husband's since he was a kid and spent many a family vacation in the Outer Banks. We had a lot of fun deciding on the right property to purchase, and then ultimately choosing the floor plan for this home. We wanted a home that would be suitable for several families to vacation together while still having some space and privacy. We love the way this house turned out. Both my husband and I work stressfull jobs and enjoy traveling to Corolla in the off season, if only for the weekend. We have 4 children (3 are pictured), one lives in Heaven. You will notice that our home is child friendly and we are safety conscious. We lost our daughter due to a preventable accident, which has resulted in our mission of sharing Maddie's Message. You can visit our website by googling Maddie's Message (VRBO prevents me listing that web address on this site)...especially if you have small children, grandchildren, or have friends with small children. We spend our free time on the baseball fields with our boys, one a rising freshman in college, and a baseball player. Our ten year old son is following close in his footsteps and is a rising 6th grader. Our baby girl will soon turn 6, will be going into the 1st Grade, and is the boss in our house. :) We have worked hard to make sure that while you are vacationing in our home that you have everything you need in order to make your vacation relaxing and stress free. We hope you enjoy 'Funk-n-Treasure'. Sincerely, Wally and Carri Funk

                                                              15 of us had a lovely stay at Funk n Treasure! The house was clean and well located. The beach was perfect. Shopping is all close by. The house is comfortable and inviting; we had plenty of room for our group (we loved how many bathrooms there were!). It's super family friendly. Carri is quick to respond.

                                                              Disappointed and frustrated

                                                              Rebecca M.

                                                              The property was a very long walk from the beach; not a short walk. For my mother in law this was almost an Impossible walk. When arriving we found the cleaning lady with her feet up on the table and her children running around; with that said the house was absolutely filthy. We had to wear shoes all week or have black feet from the dirty floors and carpets. The shower curtain liners were covered in mold and mildew to the point where some family members wouldn't use them. Ceiling fans had dirt hanging form them (literally). Rugs were still wet in the bathrooms. Beds were not made. Cobwebs hung from the light in the dining room. The kitchen was so dirty; we cleaned it prior to unpacking. The toaster hadn't been wiped down in what appeared s long time! As well as the refrigerators. Ice maker didn't work. Most bedroom and bathroom doors didn't lock nor did the exterior door on the 3rd floor. The 2nd floor exterior door required 2 people to secure it. Towel rack in bedroom fell to the floor. On the last night we wanted to take a family photo on the front deck- myself and 3 stepchildren and their dad were standing against the front rail which is approximately 6 foot off the ground when the railing gave way...could've been catastrophic! Outside of the house the spiders webs and nests were so bad you couldn't enjoy sitting out on the decks.

                                                              With all this said; this could be an absolutely gorgeous beach house and accommodate very large families. The owners seem like very nice people and answered a couple calls we made to them. It appeared to us the cleaning crew (company) is taking extreme advantage of them.

                                                              The entire family enjoyed the property and all the amenities.

                                                              This was a perfect house for our family.

                                                              would rent again

                                                              nice house.. refrig in kitchen was leaking but don't know from where and not all the time just wiped it up. and it didnt seem to be cold enough. Texted Cari to check it when we leave. It suited us very well enough room and the kids enjoyed the pool. the walk to the beach was a little longer than we thought. But all in all it was a great week. thanks

                                                              Loved the convenience of the pool in the backyard and the beach walking distance away!

                                                              We enjoyed our stay very much! We came for our mom's 60th birthday! The house was near a grocery store so it was easy to get things we needed or forgot. We loved that the beach was private. We pretty much had the area to ourselves! The only downside were the bugs. We got so much bites!

                                                              Wonderful Weekend Getaway

                                                              From the moment we moved in for the weekend until we reluctantly had to leave back to reality, the "Funk N Treasure" was truly a home away from home and slice of paradise. Our family took an extended weekend to enjoy Corolla, the lighthouse, driving on the beach, and the local restaurant scene. We were fortunate to enjoy the vicinity in the off-season with the beaches being nearly secluded. And when we returned home from our daily excursions there was so much to enjoy about the house. From the ample upper deck to enjoy our morning coffee, to the pool table throughout the day, to the grill along side the hot tub and swimming pool - there is so much to do and enjoy while just hanging around the house. And the location makes the house so close to all that there is to enjoy in the area while being just an easy walk down the street to the oceanside.

                                                              We will definitely look to use this beach house again in the future!
