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 Frisco

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.

House was very clean with large open area and bedrooms. View of the sound was great but the area to get into the water was not the best - can't really say there is a beach there. (ocean side is about a 5 min walk to beach) Can get in but have to walk thru a marshy kind of area. Owner was very easy to work with and responded to any inquiries quickly.

Owner's Response: Hello. Thanks for the review. I just wanted to clarify for other readers...The house is located in a unique part of the island that allows both Sound Side water access and Ocean side beach access without having to pack up the car and drive any where:-) so you have access to the best of both Hatteras Island worlds. The Sound side access is directly behind the house, a 50 foot raised manicured grass pathway leads to the warm shallow waters of the Pamilco sound, popular sound side activities are Kayaking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Fishing, Windsurfing, Kiteboarding, the sound side access is free from obstruction (no rocks, no docks, no pilings etc.. nothing but grass and soft sand) and the grass path leads to the water with a soft sandy bottom with a gently ingress/egress, perfect for launching a kayak, SUP or for just wading out into the water. The sound waters are super safe and fun for the kids to spend all day chasing fish and crabs in the clean, clear warm shallow waters. The Ocean side is in front of the house and the ocean beach is a 3 minute walk, a wooden board walk guides you thru the dunes and leads you to one of the most spectacular beaches on the east coast, this open easy access beach is perfect for just beaching, swimming, surfing and enjoying yourself in an uncrowded clean soft sand beach with pristine waters. Hatteras Island beaches including this very beach are consistently awarded one of the top ten beaches in the USA by Dr. Beach. I’ll post some more photos of the sound and ocean beach access.:-)

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a week with friends and family and couldn't be happier. Access to the sound is perfect for those doing water sports-- 2 kayaks and a SUP were provided. I went kite boarding most days either right in front on the flat sound water or across the street in the ocean. Coming back and having access to the hot outdoor enclosed shower was amazing. In fact, it was so nice I didn't even use the indoor shower the whole trip.

The kitchen was fully equipped and easy for us to cook for a full house. There is a grill outside that we used most days. Even caught some crabs out of the sound with the trap Keith has under the outdoor stairs.

Keith was very responsive to our needs and gave us great recommendations. The house has an informative binder providing local info, including how to get a beach driving permit which was a ton of fun.

Can't wait to go back!

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.
