About Christy & Doug

Christy has a long family history on Hatteras Island and grew up here. We live in Frisco, adjacent to the cottage, with our three daughters and love life here on Hatteras Island. Doug is a law enforcement officer and he and Christy operate a small shop (Changing Tide), also in Frisco, along with their 3 daughters. When time allows we enjoy time spent at the beach or on our family boat. We also enjoy hunting, fishing, backpacking, and lots of other outdoor activities.

Christy & Doug purchased this house in 2012

Why Christy & Doug chose Hatteras Island

We enjoy visits from family and friends, but have a pretty full house with three children. Creekside was purchased in April of 2012 primarily so that friends and family could visit us and enjoy island life with us for awhile. The cottage is adjacent to our personal property, and we think of Creekside as more of a guest house than a vacation rental. We hope you will feel as comfortable there as our friends and family do! While here, you may see us or our children taking care of the backyard chickens or garden, but we try to give you plenty of privacy. While you are here, the house is your sanctuary and we hope you feel at home.

What makes this house unique

Quiet neighborhood with lots of privacy, but still not far away from the beach or shopping. Great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing or fun in the sun.

Wonderful 2 night stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at Creekside. We were looking for a place to enjoy the sites of Hatteras before we spent a week on Ocracoke Island. Creekside was very close to the national seashore beach and Hatteras Lighthouse. A grocery store is located nearby as well. Creekside had everything we needed. A wonderful house!

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for our family of 6. The bedrooms accommodated all of us. We cooked all our meals in and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook. It is secluded yet close to the beach and shopping. We really enjoyed the stay and would come back again.

Cozy comfortable and clean cottage tucked on a wooded lot near a peaceful creek

  • 5 of 5

Spacious open floor plan cottage with comfy furniture peacefully tucked back on a wooded lot. The home was very well stocked with anything you'd need. The owners were friendly and helpful. We'll be back!

Clean and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for us. We are a family of four with a 1 1/2 year old and a 4 year old. We actually put the baby in the master bedroom so that he could have a quiet room away from us, and we slept in the double bed in what I'd call the "kid" room while our 4 year old gladly took the top of the bunk bed in the same room. We really enjoyed both the screened in porch and the back porch, where we were able to see so many stars. You can't get a view like that in the city! The house was very clean and although no one chooses a cottage based on decor, I did notice and appreciate that while there were nice nautical touches, the placed didn't look like the inside of a Wings store blew up in there like some cottages do. Someone is very handy and there were some nice woodwork items. We had brought toys for our kids, but they were elated to find a stocked toy closet there. The outdoor shower after the beach was very helpful. We have already discussed returning to this cottage again!

Private and well kept

  • 5 of 5

Well kept inside and out. Tucked away, surrounded by trees, gives you plenty of privacy. We loved it, hope to get back!
