About Bob and Christy Drapala

We have been vacationing in Frisco for over twenty years and fell in love with the place on our first trip. We were engaged in Frisco and were married on the sandy beaches of this beautiful retreat. Even our first dog was named Frisco and now we have one named Hatteras. In 2002 we were celebrating our fifth anniversary and bought this cottage sight unseen because we knew the spot was a gem and we were right. With views and water access it can't be beat. Bobby loves the place so much he did three books on the area starting with Portrait of the Outer Banks. We have a daughter named Meadow and we enjoy watching her grow up in this beautiful place.

Bob and Christy Drapala purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Bob and Christy Drapala chose Frisco

This property can't be beat because of the tremendous views, incredible water access and wonderful wildlife just out your back door. Our large property offers plenty of space kites and sails. After using a local realtor to manage our property for the past several years, we have decided to rent on our own. If you have rented our property before please mention it with your booking and we will include a special gift for you and your family!

What makes this cottage unique

There aren't any other rental properties in Frisco with the unique benefits of Still Flying Free. Bring your flat bottom boat and dock it right on our property! Have kids, they will love the shallow Sound access and splashing around. Have dogs, they will play fetch for endless hours in the Sound.

Still Flying Free!

  • 5 of 5

Great fall get away! Right on the sound in Frisco NC. Great 2 story property with hot tub overlooking the sound. You can fish right from the dock, or paddle out in kayaks and explore wildlife in the surrounding creeks and marshes. We really enjoyed our stay!

Absolutely The Best

  • 5 of 5

Everything was beautiful from the new "boardwalk" on the sound to the multiple open and screened-in decks! Two master bedrooms with Kings is awesome! Kitchen is well equipped with new dishwasher and new refrigerator with ice maker. The stove is electric (but in very good working order so we won't hold that against it) Plenty of space for two families. The multiple decks (some screened-in some not) were perfect for our two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers to relax in when they were done bounding about in the sound or the ocean. The boys caught fish they had never caught before right off the deck. We got some great blue crabs in the crab pot off the dock. The outside shower is large and has ample space for your soaps, towels, etc. Two double kayaks and a single are perfect for the sound with easy launching and returns. We had no issues that needed to be addressed while we were there so we don't have an opinion on the maintenance and cleaning service except to say that the place was very clean when we arrived and they were very accommodating when we arrived early and were able to get into the house before check-in. Bonus!! Very close to many amenities such as shopping and dining. Don't miss a chance to book this place (except the week when WE want it!) Don't forget to say hi to the old sea turtle that lives in the canal next to the house!

Thank you, thank you from our two families( and our doggies too...)

Great house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a family group of six adults and 3 dogs. We absolutely loved the house. It was spacious, clean and well furnished and decorated. The downstairs master and bath was perfect for my granddaughter and her husband and 2 dogs. It was like a honeymoon suite for a young couple, with private space inside and out. The view was spectacular from almost anywhere in the house. It was a great place to stay if you like the water. Close to beach and right on the sound. We loved driving on the beach. The only reason we give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that there was construction going on outside on the seawall which limited our access to the sound and dock. The owners were extremely helpful in dealing with this and even returned part of our rent in consideration for the inconvenience. They thought the work would be done before we got there. All in all, we loved the place and hope to return in future. Thank you Christy.

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Still Flying Free. We loved the house! It was in a quiet area and the views of the sound were wonderful. It was very pet friendly and the dogs had a fun stay also. It was great to go to the beach or sight see and then enjoy the sound from the deck in the evening. I loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again!
