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'.

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

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Our Family Felt Right at Home

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a week at Funk 'N' Treasure, and felt compelled to share our experience. My wife and I went there with our 2 teenage daughters (ages 15 and 16), and each of them brought 3 friends. Oh, and our dog, Bella, came along too. That's 10 girls (counting Bella) and me. The house itself is lovely. Very spacious and clean. When we were home, we spent a lot of time in the great room and dining room hanging out, playing games, watching movies, etc. The kitchen was spacious with a very large island and is well stocked with pots, pans, plates, and just about anything you would need for cooking. The kids really enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub, and also spent some time playing basketball out front. We were just a short walk from the beach, which was nice and not too crowded. We were located very close to shopping, restaurants, etc. We were within a mile or so of two supermarkets, which was convenient. We were able to stock up the kitchen the night we got there, which worked out great. We were also very close to a Dunkin' Donuts and a Starbucks, which earned me the responsibility of picking up my wife's latte every morning. We rented bicycles for the kids, who were able to ride around independently, which was nice. They would ride over to places like Timbuck II (maybe 0.5 miles away), which has many nice shops, places to eat, go karts, mini golf, etc. They took turns getting their hair braided, getting matching henna tattoos, and other girl stuff. We went over to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse one afternoon, climbed to the top, and enjoyed the view - I definitely recommend doing that if you ever get to Corolla.

By the way, our visit was in late March, and we were delighted with the weather - it was in the low-to-mid 70's most days, with one day a bit rainy and cool, and one day up around 80. Could not have asked for better weather!

Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention how responsive Carri Funk was. I had a few questions for her before we arrived and a couple while we were there. She responded within minutes (or quicker) each time.

Our family really enjoyed staying at Funk 'N' Treasure, and would recommend it to anyone heading to Corolla.
