About Keith McCulloch

We are a Father and Son team originally from Pennsylvania who came to Cape Hatteras in 1982 and fell in love with the clean empty beaches and the warm waters of the Pamlico Sound and the Frisco surf. Keith (son) lives in Avon and manages the Frisco property. You'll be getting personal service directly from the owners.

Keith McCulloch purchased this house in 2010

Why Keith McCulloch chose Hatteras Island

We built this custom beach house for our family to enjoy the best of the Outerbanks. We love the warm waters and beaches of the southern Outerbanks. The Ocean water is warmer and the waves are more gentle on this south facing beach than the east facing beaches just a few miles away. It makes all the difference on the south side! The south side of the Island has softer sand, smoother beaches, warmer water, less people, gentle waters, quieter neighborhoods and its 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, our beach was rated #4 best beach in USA in 2010.

What makes this house unique

Its all about the location. Surrounded by water the house has water views from every window. You'll have unique access to both Ocean and Sound from one location. Simply the best spot for all Outer Banks activity's.

Perfect Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was spectacular! We had a wonderful time. In fact, we've been kicking around the idea of taking the kids to Disney, but we asked them what they thought and they said they'd much rather come back here! Music to our ears...the house was perfect, the beach was practically private, and the sound provided plenty of entertainment. We kayaked, set the crab trap, fished, and watched some stunning sunsets. Oh, and we all loved the Quarterdeck! Thank you for the recommendation. Perfect week!

Best on this stretch of soundside

  • 5 of 5

We come to this particular area of Frisco each year and this is the newest and best appointed house we have stayed. The reason we keep coming back to this stretch is that ocean beach is just some 700 ft away on the other side. MaMaHooHoo is as you would expect a house which is only a few years old when everything is new and still works good. Linens are good quality and included. Kitchen is well stocked with pans/pots, spices, oils so cooking was easy. Access to sound is good for kiteboarding or just kayaking around with both kayaks which came with the house. Crab pod was a nice surprise and provided two breakfasts for us.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location for those that want to get away from the over crowded beach areas. House was very clean and spacious. Everything we wanted to cook with was available in the kitchen. Two kayaks were fun to cruise around in on the sound. We LOVED the hot outdoor shower! Very short and easy walk to the beach. We spent mornings and afternoons there with nice break in between at house to relax. We also returned to hunt for crabs and walk along the beach in the evenings. Sunset off the back deck was gorgeous. Great waves to body surf at this beach. Would highly recommend and hope to return!

The Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

The house and surroundings were even more beautiful and spacious than the pictures. There was a view from every window of the ocean or the sound. We enjoyed kayaking in the sound- it was perfect for beginners since the water is very shallow and clear. We used the crab cage to catch dinner one night. A handicapped-accessible beach entrance, complete with warm showers, was a short walk up the road and very family-friendly. Beach toys and boogies boards made it fun to play and surf the waves. The ocean was very warm even though it was early June. The house was very clean, pretty and well-organized, and everything was comfortably set up for a large family stay. A writer's roost at the top of the house with desk, chair and windows was an added bonus. Being right next to the sound means you should bring bug spray for mosquitoes in the evening. We enjoyed taking the free car ferry to Ocracoke and exploring Hatteras shops as well. Avoid the small grocery stores - stick to the Food Lion for a much better price and selection. A visit to the Orange Blossom is a must- try the "Apple Ugly", their famous fresh baked apple fritters the size of your head. The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum was also a fun place to explore. This was one of the most well-maintained and well-thought out vacation houses we've ever rented.

Great vacationw

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoy coming to this location. The house is clean, comfortable and beautiful. The beds are comfortable and house is very well kept. I highly recommend this location for family vacations. The beach is very close by, just a short trip across the street. The sound is right out the back door. The sound is a great place to allow the kids to safely play in the water and enjoy all kinds of water activities.

The house is located to all that you may need. Restaurants, grocery, pharmacy, and shopping.
