We loved the house and the views! It was exactly what we needed; very well appointed with everything that a large,diverse group could want.
Obx Blue was great to work with for setting the reservation.
The owner, checked on us mid-week which was an unexpected nice touch. We could tell that he genuinely cares about his guests.
The only issue was with the cleaning/linen team. Pails of butts from the previous guests were left on every deck and around the pool. Obx Blue took care of that.
We were never able to get real King size bed sheets for the masters, but we made do.
(Packages of linens that were labeled "king" were dropped off numerous times, but they were all really queen sheets inside the packages.)
My family, friends and I all loved our "perfect week at Gurarenteed Fun!"

Great place to stay. Hot tub, pool and best of all across the street was the beach. Beautiful views from front decks. Close to everything. The only bad thing is that the living room, dining room and kitchen were on the third level. They should have at least a dumb waiter to take the groceries up to the third level.

Although the house was nice and in a great location we did run into some issues. The air conditioner went out on the first and second floor. They were able to fix the problem on the second floor but the first floor unit had to be replaced and that did not happen while we were there. Also one day the alarms went off for several hours until the electrician came and fixed the problem.

The owners called to make sure everything was going well. They couldn't be nicer! What a class act. The home itself was every bit of guaranteed fun. We stayed with 7 adults and 1 child. The beach access is delightful, the views were excellent. There is nothing that is too far away. We saw wild horses on Corolla 4x4 beach, had excellent custard ice cream at Kill Devil Hills and took a drive down to Hatteras. And, did some horse back riding as well.
The pool was clean, the house was clean and my calves got a great workout going up and down those stairs. Thanks Barr family! Your cozy home was an oasis.

This is our second time staying at Guaranteed Fun. The property has been upgraded since our first stay 6 years ago. Bedrooms are spacious and set up well. Kitchen was well stocked with the utensils we needed. However, there were ants in the kitchen that mandated all of our food be kept in the refrigerator. Pool and hot tub area was very nice. Would rent again.

Guaranteed Fun was a beautiful home in a beautiful area. You can see the beach from the porch! The house had everything you could possibly need! The pool and hot tub were very clean and the house was amazing! Thank you to the owners and OuterBanks Blue for a wonderful vacation experiance!
