Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We found Hatteras some 30yrs ago searching for a new surf fishing location and destination to get away from it all. Living in Maryland many of our childhood vacations experiences were spent in Ocean City. The non-commercialized, less hustle & bustle vacation atmosphere of Hatteras Island, along with its natural beauty and unbounded recreational experiences has kept us returning ever since. From our families first footsteps in the sand to sand castles and kiddy pools on south beach, ghost crab hunting, campfires/star gazing on the beach, fishing, surfing, kite boarding, and many ferry trips to Ocracoke, Hatteras Island has become our families favorite destination.

Why the Owner Chose Frisco, NC, USA:
Years ago we vacationed along northern beaches of Avon until a local let us in on a secret-(well known now) on Hatteras Island--south beaches! One trip down past Cape Point to Frisco beaches and we never returned. Here vacationers escape the howl of NE winds and enjoy the gentle summer SW winds. If you are seeking the tropical island feel with calmer, warmer clear waters, south beach area in Frisco is the best location on Hatteras Island. For families with children there is no better beach. The gentle beach slope provides safe more calmers waters perfect for swimming, surfing, SUP boards, snorkeling and an abundance of other beach activities. During spring and fall the water temps are 5-10 warmer than those of northern beaches. Our family could enjoy warm waters conditions in the off season, while the fisherman in our group headed north to cape point or south to inlet for the big catch. During the later fall season of October- Jan the best puppy drum and trout fishing on the island is right in front of the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It took only one look in What The Shell, and we were hooked. It's closeness to beach, beautiful layout with perfect amenities along with pool and hot tub made our decision so easy. Besides it's newness, the most appealing part of the interior was the huge open living area/kitchen (no squeezed in extra bedrooms)with ocean view out nearly every window. I couldn't wait to enjoy time here with all my family. We have created so many wonderful memories in just the few seasons we've been here. We leave each time sad to go but anxious to plan the next visit. We hope by sharing What The Shell, your family will enjoy the many experiences Hatteras Island has to offer while creating treasured vacation memories of a lifetime.
