About the property

3 bed/2 bath, sleeps 10 - spotless gem 2 lots from the beach

2017 KITCHEN AND BATH RENOVATIONS. Fun begins the minute you enter our home! Second lot from the beach - Seas The Day features kitchen beach views and magnificent front sound views. New 2016 bedding, window treatments and balcony chairs! You are welcomed to the main floor with an open living room/kitchen area. Enjoy free WiFi with a strong signal. There are 2 bedrooms - 1 queen and 1 double bunk room perfect for kids - and a large full bath on the 1st floor. A Master Suite is on the 2nd floor with a split full bath allowing seperate private use of both the vanity area and shower area.

We are a perfect spot for guests bringing a boat or a few cars because Seas The Day has a useful oversized driveway. We also have an oversized outdoor shower complete with a dressing area - especially handy for washing sand off the kids before entering the house. Adjacent to the outdoor shower is a large fish cleaning table and a backyard grill for your dining pleasure.

Enjoy a beverage on the large front deck and watch the sun set on the sound across the street. It just doesn't get better than that! The beach doesn't sleep in

Frisco once the sun goes down. Walk back through the dunes with your shovel and a few logs and make a bonfire to wind down the day. Walk up and down the beach talking to the other bonfire folks or just relax with your family or sweetie.

Frisco is a very special place. I promise you that you will leave more relaxed than you could have imagined and you will be planning your return for next year. We accept partial week stays within the Sat-Sat window upon our approval.

About Patrice Machikas

Hi - we are Patrice and George and we welcome you to our home. We reside in the Philadelphia area but Frisco is our home away from home to us, our 4 daughters and 2 son-in-laws. Although we are considerably closer to the New Jersey shore beaches we grew tired of the relentless crowds, jammed beaches and commercialism there and found our way to the OBX. Once we researched an OBX vacation many years ago we knew that Hatteras Island was the place for us. Our daughters fell in love with Frisco and we have all been coming here ever since.

Patrice Machikas purchased this house in 2007

Why Patrice Machikas chose Hatteras Island

We decided to look into buying for our 25th wedding anniversary. After two long days of viewing numerous properties for sale it was easy to decide on buying this house. It had it all - location, affordability and a warm family feel.

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Seas the Day, albeit it a short one, the house was very comfortable for us. There is a lot to do, or nothing to do...whatever suits you. Patrice was wonderful keeping me informed and gave us some great tips for places to eat. The Orange Blossom Café in Hatteras is a must. Beautiful views of the sound from the front deck and very close to the ocean.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a small group of friends spent a week at this house and absolutely loved it; The owner was nothing but helpful and kind, and the home itself is amazing. Seas The Day was clean, well-stocked, and cozy. This house is such a great little getaway, set right by the ocean and far away from the typical outer banks traffic. I would definitely stay here again, and look forward to my next visit!

Look no Further! Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location and very comfortable for our family of 6. It was more like staying at a friends house, felt like home and decorated nicely. The beach is really close, very easy walk. We loved the location as well, it was far enough away from everything to not be really busy, but close enough to things to have plenty of fun. We are already thinking about the next time that we can stay at Seas the Day!!

Owner's Response: Thank you VERY much Jonathan!!!! I'm thrilled your family had a great vacation at our home. Your comments are exactly the sentiment I strive to create. It will be an honor to have you back next season – you'll see some nice upgrades. We'll have a beautiful new kitchen floor by next summer. That had been planned for this summer but lots of outdoor expenses too precidenc. Thank you again for your business!

Relaxing First Visit to the Outer Banks

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Patrice's Seas the Day the first week of June 2016. It was conveniently located within a 2 minute walk or 1 minute drive to the beach. Although you had a limited view of the Atlantic from the kitchen, you had a glorious view of the Sound. The house was very nice and cozy - just right for my family of four. My two kids, 5 and 3 years old, had a great time. My husband and I really enjoyed our first trip to the Outer Banks! Thank you, Patrice!

If you are returning to Hatteras Island to vacation you know it is a beautiful unique beach getaway. If you are looking into HI for the first time I urge you to come - you'll want to return as often as possible. Pristine white beaches abound with a rare non commercial island flair!! Locals sell beautiful handmade wares and family owned restaurants serve delicious fare specializing in daily catch dishes as well as traditional menu items.

So much to do - so little time. Enjoy trying deep sea fishing from one of the many great charters available. Walk along the beautiful marinas with an ice cream and watch the charters return at the end of the day. Soak up rays on the beach and in the warm OBX ocean water with frequent dolphin sightings, parasail and jet ski, go horseback riding on the beach, take kite boarding lessons, drive dune buggies on the beach and end the day with old or new friends around a beach bonfire.

Once you do all of that enjoy a plane ride up and down the coast viewing lighthouses and sea life. Climb to the top of the Buxton lighthouse for awesome views and learn about it's great history. From there go to the free Graveyard of the Atlantic museum in Hatteras Village or hop the free Ocracoke Ferry to historic and primitive Ocracoke Island.
