Quaint, clean beach house that was perfect for three triathletes in town for a race

  • 4 of 5

This is a quaint house close to the beach. Three bedrooms upstairs with one bath. One bedroom downstairs with one bath. There is an outdoor shower and deck. We stayed here the weekend three of us did the Outer Banks Triathlon in Manteo, which is nearby.

The house is clean. There is a kitchen counter with four bar stools, an outdoor deck with seating there. The hot tub was great to relax in after our race. The rooms are small, but for this price and what we were there for were just what we needed. One room has two sets of bunk beds which were perfect for the kids.

The downstairs room and bathroom are only accessible by the outside stairs. Didn't realize this at first, but it wasn't really a problem for us. There is a single TV in the living room with two very comfortable sofas. The entire place is decorated in a great beachy feel. The house has an awesome tree in the front yard. FYI, there was no dishwasher.

To get to the beach was only a short walk. Technically it is two blocks from the beach, but it is really just across the Beach Road (Rt 12) and the block you are on is right at a cross walk leading to a beach access path next to the Ramada.

Everything the owners promised was there. It was easy to check in to and find. While the property is considered Kill Devil Hills, it feels closer to Nags Head, being at MP 9.5 - the McDonalds is a landmark for your turn off of Rt. 158.

We really enjoyed our weekend for the OBX tri and were happy with this house.

Great house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The OBX Fun House was perfectly sandwiched between the beach, MamaKwans, 7 eleven and Harris Teeter. Probably one of the most convenient locations to stay down there. We enjoyed our time and hope to come back next year.

Perfect for the weekend

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect house for a weekend at the beach, location is great with tons of food choices and only about a 5 minute walk to the beach access. We were greeted by Kathy who cleans the home and was very welcoming and sociable. We had around 10 people and we weren't on top of each other but I could see it getting a little tight over the course of the entire week. The hot tub was a hit with plenty of room. Mama Kwans was great for food and drinks and is literally in crawling distance (we may have experienced this first hand). Plenty of amenities in the home such as dishes and glass wear. Our only complaints would be that the lock box did not work and the bikes/bogey boards are due for replacement as the tires wouldn't hold air. Overall a great place for a weekend get away.

A bit old, but quirky and charming.

  • 4 of 5

The house is a great deal for the price. The appliances work, good yard space, nice hot tub, great A/C, and comfy beds. It's a little old, the kitchen and bathrooms are small and make sure the oven is off all the way because it can be hard to tell. We comfortably fit 9 young adults in the house. The downstairs bedroom is detached and has a separate entrance, and smelled a bit like mildew at first, but it's nice for separating couples. The lockbox door is somewhat sticky and the blinds fall off, but the entrance to the house is lovely and light, with a nice open floor plan and vaulted ceiling. The driveway can fit a lot of cars. Overall a good house, easily one of the best deals at OBX.
