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 Hatteras Island

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.

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.

Our favorite place ever!

  • 5 of 5

We visit our Grandchildren every year and this is the best home and area we have ever been to. The house was immaculate, very well designed for a large family (there were 8 of us). We all had plenty of space, the home and furnishings very comfortable with everything one needs for cooking and living in a relaxing environment. My husband and I slept better than ever and had all of the peace and quiet we needed even with the whole family there. Lots of decks and areas to enjoy the views in a nice neighborhood a few minutes walk to the best beach! The Grandchildren learned to surf there as well! We loved our stay and will definitely return next year. We were also there for Tropical Storm Hermine and the home kept us safe and sound through high winds and heavy rains! Thank you so much! Holly and Charlie

Great vacation spot for our famiy

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we immediately enjoyed the look of the home, parking under the house was a bonus as well as the cargo lift. The home was very clean. The neighborhood was very quiet. The kitchen was well equipped, but I did miss having a garbage disposal. The WiFi Company was very responsive getting the WIFI connected. Great benefit of the house was the very effective central air conditioning and plenty of hot water. We especially enjoyed the warm water in the outdoor shower.

From any of the decks we were able to enjoy the expansive green area next to house, we saw a variety of wild life, even a fawn. The planes landing and taking off from the Billy Mitchell airfield added another dimension to our stay at the Outer Banks. We could see the Hatteras Lighthouse and the ocean views were great. The house is located about 3 houses from the beach, but it is a short walk. A short drive from the house to ramp 49, the beach could be accessed using a 4-wheel drive vehicle. We used this option most every day. The beach was never crowded.

We enjoyed the cinnamon rolls and the huge Apple Uglies from the Orange Blossom Bakery and Cafe. http://orangeblossombakery.com/. We spent a day enjoying the free ferry ride to and from Ocracoke. https://www.ncdot.gov/ferry/. Ocracoke is a fun place to visit, especially via a 6 passenger golf cart. http://www.ocracokevillage.com/. Grocery shopping was very convenient at the well-stocked Connor’s Market in Buxton. The staff was so pleasant and helpful. http://www.connerssupermarket.com/.
