About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 baths

Stairs, Stairs, Stairs! Are you tired of starting your beach vacation hauling all that luggage and groceries up all those stairs. The Dreamcatcher is the place for you. The 400 lb cargo lift makes luggage and groceries a breeze. And how about those daily trips for ice? Not here, the house is equipped with a commercial ice maker, so grab an icy cold beverage and take in the spectacular ocean, sound and lighthouse views from one of the three spacious decks. Ample deck seating (updated in 2012 to include dolphin watching chairs) allows everyone to relax and enjoy the sites and sounds. Located just three lots back makes an easy walk to the beach. Soak in the ocean view hot tub or curl up in front of the gas fireplace (seasonal) or simply relax and read on the 1st floor deck swing. Gourmet meals and exotic drinks can easily be prepared and enjoyed in this well equipped kitchen & spacious dining area or savor the flavor in the many local restaurants. Deep sea fishing and all of the watersports the OBX has to offer are within a few miles. Truly a place to relax and enjoy all this nationally recognized seashore has to offer, providing a dreamy beach getaway.

About David Mobley

Our love of the outer banks goes way back in history. The Dreamcatcher is co-owned by 2 couples. Dave & Kaye Mobley & Dave & Nancy Emnett. Dave E has been visiting since the 60's. The Emnetts as a family first vacationed in OBX in 1981. The Mobleys first discovered the beauty of the OBX in in 1987 they were invited on vacation with the Emnetts. We are all born & bred Buckeyes & reside in the Dayton, Ohio area. In 1999 our dream vacation became a reality with the purchase of the lot & construction of the Dreamcatcher. Since then both our families & friends have enjoyed our beautiful home away from home countless times. By career, Mr. Mobley is a CPA owning his our firm. The other three are all in the medical field with 2 nurses & a respiratory therapist. We both have grown children (2 each) & 5 grandchildren (at last count), We all share the love of dogs & have allowed them to be part of our beach life. We have had been blessed with wonderful memories made in the Dreamcatcher & invite you to make your own.

David Mobley purchased this house in 1999

Why David Mobley chose Frisco

The property was originally looked at by the Emnetts due to lack of pet properties and one very wet week in a pop top camper with 2 kids & 2 labs. We have loved the Frisco area due to the secluded beaches & local fare. The 2 families have enjoyed many vacations in the area & when approached about a partnership, the Mobleys jumped at the chance.

What makes this house unique

The spectacular views are the Dreamcatcher's finest quality. With only park seashore to our north, we have an unobstructed view of the coastline as far as you can see including a view of the lighthouse. The third level deck offers beautiful sunsets views & is exciting for storm watching. The short walk to the beach makes it easy to spend time there.

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Dreamcatcher during Thanksgiving 2017. The home was set up with everything we needed for our stay. There was plenty of room for our family to spread out and enjoy the home. Our children especially loved the board games and puzzles! Everything was clean and well maintained. There are also some gorgeous views from the deck! We were able to see deer and a turkey roaming the land next to the house. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home to anyone who is searching for a peaceful and enjoyable family getaway.

Great vacation rental with fantastic views of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Loved being close to the ocean. Enjoyed sitting on the decks, watching the fireworks on July 4th & occasionally using the hot tub. The house was clean & well equipped. The lift was a great convenience. Also appreciated the fact we could have our dog with us. Very enjoyable vacation.

Comfortable home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our second time visiting Dreamcatcher was just as wonderful as the first. The beds and linens are very comfortable, everything is very clean, and the beach is a short walk over the dune.

Well Maintained and close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent 4.5 days at Dreamcatcher. We unfortunately had to leave early due to Hurricane Matthew. The house is well taken care of and the kitchen is well stocked for those that like to cook. The beach is a short walk away. The decks offer nice views of the ocean. We go to the Outer Banks every other year to vacation as a family and always enjoy our time.

Overall a great place to stay in the Outer Banks

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had wanted an area that would not be crowded and for that reason we traveled in September after school had started. We read reviews of several properties and thought Dreamcatcher would be an ideal place. Previous guests had raved about the views and I would certainly agree the views from the property were outstanding. We could see the ocean and in the late afternoons, deer would emerge from the forested area on the north side of the property (no obstructing houses on this side). The walk to the ocean was short and easy to traverse. The house is equipped with all the cooking and dining needs. The only problem we encountered was the air conditioning unit for the lower level (where the bedrooms are located) did not seem to be working well. We could not tell much difference between running the AC and just leaving the windows open. Sleeping was a little uncomfortable a couple of nights. The upstairs unit worked fine however. Another picky little thing is the service company for the property provides only CHEAP toilet paper and trash bags (towels and minimal soap are not that great either) so you may want to bring or buy your own. No beach amenities are provided. Overall the property is worth your consideration based on the views and easy access to the beach.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, The toiletpaper and other items in the welcome bag is only a starter items and not meant to last the entire stay. As for all of the other issues I wish you would have called Shore Detail. They would have corrected them during the week while you were there so you would not have to deal with it for the entire week. Shore Detail is an excellent maintenance company and they would have taken care of the issues. I am sorry that you had these issues but glad you did enjoy the stay. We always try to listen to the needs and suggestion of our quest. Thanks for staying at Dreamcatcher and will come back again.
