Property description

Sunday to Sunday Rental means less traffic on your way in and out.

Enjoy astonishing sound sunset and sunrise views from the furnished deck of this relaxing cozy cottage located on the point in Brigands Bay, Frisco, NC on Hatteras Island, Outerbanks, aka, OBX.

Leave plenty of time to do nothing at all. Sit on the private deck and look out over Pamlico Sound where you'll watch windsurfers and kiteboarders sail across the water. Out on our deck towards evening time, watch the mackerel jump or drop a kayak in the water for a sunset paddle. Just relaxing is 'island time' well spent.

Outerbanks is known for some of the best windsurfing, kiteboarding and fishing on the whole East Coast and this can all be done from the backyard of this cottage.
Plenty of room for rigging your gear, enclosed outdoor shower, fish cleaning table and BBQ grill are all here in our backyard.

Just north 10 minutes on NC12 is Canadian Hole also known as Kitepoint, which is where wind surfers from Canada have flocked to since the 1980s. This sweet spot now attracts kiteboarders as well.
The warm, shallow water of the Pamlico Sound, combined with the steady warm Gulf Stream and Outer Banks winds create unparalleled conditions for wind surfing and kite boarding.

Just south 5 minutes are the beaches of Frisco. Free parking and don’t forget the cool beverages and sunscreen. Rest a beach chair at the edge of the surf and do nothing.

Our Cozy Cottage has 3 bedrooms including 1 bunk room, 2 single beds, and 1 full size bed.

The entire kitchen has new Ginger Maple Cabinets and new counter tops; NEW flat top stove, NEW fridge, dishwasher, microwave, NEW washer and dryer on the main level for convenient use.

The living room has 2 glass sliders for access to the decks and great views. Also there is a Large Flat Screen TV and High Speed Internet for those occasional rainy days or catchup with emails, etc...
Many new amenities and updates to make you feel right at home and enjoy your vacation.

As owners, we keep the place nice because we stay here too.
We want you to feel right at home in our vacation home.

Some things you may consider doing while staying in the Outer Banks - visit a fish market for freshly caught local fish, kayaking in the sound, charter fishing, birding or lighthouse tours, take an art class, visit the local potteries for hand made wares, set sail on a romantic sunset cruise, take a ferry ride to Ocracoke, a quaint fishing village and artist colony...

Fishing is popular along the entire stretch of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, as both ocean and sound fishing are available. Watch the local fishermen motor out the channel to the sound each day to bring in their catch.
Just across Hwy 12 is a fresh fish market and there are also plenty of fine restaurants, coffee houses and bakeries in the area.

Other popular activities include, crabbing, clamming, kayaking, boating, biking, photography, snorkeling/scuba diving, swimming, sailing, hiking and bird watching. Nature trails are nearby too some of which are in Buxton Woods.

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a birders paradise, with over 400 different species of birds sighted. Located along the Eastern Flyway, its varied habitats and strong winds and storms force the exhausted birds to rest. The greatest variety of species occurs during the spring and fall migration.

We are proud to note that the beaches here at nearby Buxton were rated in the Top 10 Best Beaches in the USA by Dr. Stephen Leatherman for 2013. This year the Cape Hatteras National Seashore beach ranks No. 8 on the list – up two from last year’s No. 10 spot. The lifeguarded beach in Buxton has been on the Top Ten list for several years. Its highest rankings have been No. 4 in 2010 and No. 5 in 2011. It was also No. 8 in 2008 and No. 7 in 2009. We can see why Cape Hatteras beaches have been chosen. !!

Spend a day at the Buxton beach and Cape Hatteras National Seashore beach which are just minutes away, combing for shells, surf fishing, sunbathing or just relaxing.

Visit the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse which is only 6 minutes north of our cozy cottage. This is the tallest brick lighthouse in America. This stretch of beach, referred to as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” is also rich with history. You will find the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Ocracoke Lighthouse, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station, Frisco Native American Museum and the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge all nearby.

Ride the free ferry boat to Ocracoke Island to explore. This island is only accessible by water or air & is the reputed location of Blackbeard's death.


Owner info

About the owner: We are from the mountains of central Pennsylvania but have always had an attraction to the water. Many of our memories are of our pleasant times spent at the Outer Banks. One of the first places we stayed here is just 2 blocks from our cottage. That was during the beginning of our courtship. As the years passed we kept coming back here to the Outer Banks to enjoy the quiet, clean beaches and to have time away to recharge. We saw the need to invest in our cozy cottage for future generations to enjoy as well. We are only to happy to share our cozy cottage with our guests. When we stay here it feels like home. Our dog Tipper usually comes along too as you will see in the additional pictures. One of us is a scuba diver and the other a kite boarder so this place offers the best of both. We hope that you will create memories as we have done. Relax, recharge and enjoy your stay! Kindest regards! Jim and Mary

Why the Owner Chose Frisco:
We have been enjoying the Outerbanks for over a decade and for the 2011 season we are offering our newly acquired vacation home for others to enjoy. We have found Frisco to be one of the nicest areas of the Outer Banks. The warm waters soothe and gentle breezes relax. We appreciate the beautiful beaches and how natural and uncommercialized the area is.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Laid back island lifestyle. Home away from home. Perfect relaxing vacation spot with real friendly locals. Freshly caught fish and shellfish.
