Frisco house description

Best of both worlds – you’ll appreciate the panoramic marsh/sound views and the three-minute walk (about 200 yards) to the uncrowded beach! Salty Dog graces a unique location, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pamlico Sound on a very narrow part of Hatteras Island -- water views from every room!

Colorfully-decorated beach house was recently updated with bamboo and tile flooring and carpet. Spacious lot provides direct sound-side access to a very popular windsurfing and kayaking area. Neighborhood ocean access is just across the road, and the Frisco fishing pier is just a short stroll away.

After a day of activity, unwind at the built-in pool while your dinner cooks over the poolside grill or in the well-equipped kitchen. Then spread out in the spacious great room for adult conversation and music while the kids enjoy foosball, Playstation 2, satellite TV or a movie in the game room downstairs.

When darkness falls, enjoy the splendor of a starry night from the hot tub or on one of the decks equipped with comfortable Adirondack chairs. Then gather in the great room for a family movie on the 50-inch plasma HDTV and DVD home theater system before retreating to one of the seven comfortable bedrooms (including two master suites with oceanview decks and two queen bedrooms with access to sound-side deck and hot tub).

Bring your own PC and enjoy wireless broadband Internet access.

Pets welcome, up to two dogs only please (no cats) at no additional charge. Curbside recycling provided seasonally.

Salty Dog has everything you need to be the headquarters for your Hatteras Island vacation!


Located between NC 12 mile markers 68 and 69 in one of the few villages on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Salty Dog is a great base to explore the area. You’ll be within a few minutes drive of several local landmarks and recreational areas:

- Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum – 4.3 miles
- Hatteras Ferry Terminal (to Ocracoke) – 4.2 miles
- Cape Hatteras Lighthouse – 8.8 miles
- Boat launches/marinas – several within 5-10 minute drive
- Ramp 49 (closest beach access for 4WD vehicles) – 2.3 miles
- Haulover Day Use Area (Canadian Hole) windsurfing area – 10 miles

Attractions on the northern beaches, such as Jockey’s Ridge State Park, the Wright Brothers National Memorial, Fort Raleigh National Historical Site, The Lost Colony outdoor drama and the NC Aquarium at Manteo are about an hour away.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Richard and Aleece live near Raleigh, North Carolina with our three kids and two dogs. We had always dreamed of owning a beach house and finally 'took the plunge' in 2005.

                  Why the Owner Chose Frisco:
                  The Outer Banks in general, and Hatteras Island in particular, are so much more laid back than many other beach destinations. Most of Hatteras Island is national seashore, so there's lots of room for people to spread out. The beaches are world-class; in fact, the beach at Ocracoke was rated the top beach in the U.S. in 2007! And we love visiting the historical lighthouses that punctuate the coast -- Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras and Ocracoke are all close by.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love our location because our house has direct access to the Pamlico Sound and yet we are just across the road from the ocean. Because we are sandwiched between two huge bodies of water, it gets so dark at night that the sky is filled with stars -- we can often see the Milky Way! Two of the main villages on the island, Buxton and Hatteras, are within a 5-10 minute drive, so we're close to shops and restaurants (though these are on a smaller scale than in more touristy destinations). We are also within 10 minutes drive of the ferry to Ocracoke Island and the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, two of the area's top visitor attractions.
