About the property

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.

GRINCH stole our Christmas

  • 2 of 5

First clue when we drove up was the house was for sale. We'd lost a family member and my husband surprised me with this Christmas getaway. We were looking for three important amenities near the beach: hot tub, fireplace and DVD as little is open in Dec. These were advertised as available. The hot tub took entire first night to reach temp, lights were all out making it unsafe for elders to climb around at night as well as ambience ruined. The gas fireplace did not work. Called property mgt office on Dec 23, a tech was sent, lit pilot light but it still didn't work properly. It continued to shut off after an hour of annoyance (indicating a possible valve or thermostat problem from one's we've owned ourselves) we kept smelling gas strong. Safety first, we turned it off. Prop. Mgr told us owner had problems with it too. SO Christmas Eve, we bought popcorn and movies (no romantic FP) then the old DVD player didn't work. YES we followed instructions, it wouldn't recognize disc was in. We aren't stupid and have owned many) SO we tried to record movies, recorder on remote was not working. We called property mgt office again on Dec 26 concerning the fireplace and DVD player, talked to a rep who told us the prop mgr would call us back, but no one returned our call. The microwave had so much rust in it I didn't want to put food in it. Fire Extinguisher was expired. If we hadn't prepaid and driven 11 hrs we'd have left. After our stay, we did contact owner and explained the problems. Since we only received partial product, we requested a partial refund. He offered a discount on future visit and basically denied our complaints and referred to his rave reviews. We are a Military Officer family, honesty and integrity is how we live. We have no reason to make these things up. They are just our personal opinions regarding our individual experience. The views were good, though blocked by a big house, you can still see partial ocean. The lot is great, secluded w/ wildlife. Easy walk to beaches. 50 miles to larger area of shops and restaurants as little is open in Dec. House needs updating and repairs. We've used and loved VRBO since 2009, and never had less than a 5 star experience. Many even decorated for us at Christmas.

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.
