About Julia Head

We moved to Frisco 18 years ago with our two daughters. We loved the area and felt the call to leave Ohio and partner with a young pastor in a local fellowship. We are now involved with supporting Three 1 Six Ministries and a facility to reach the youth of Hatteras Island through skateboarding and christian outreach.

Julia Head purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Julia Head chose Frisco

Frisco has always been our favorite area of Hatteras Island. Our children grew up on the beach near the old Frisco Pier and Ramp 49.

What makes this cottage unique

We completely remodeled this home eight years ago and have fallen in love with all the windows and views out to the water. Watch the sun rise and shine down the canal and enjoy the peaceful deck while sipping your morning coffee. Unlike most homes, this home is one floor and has only three steps to enter. Great for elderly folks who are not able to climb multiple stories of steps.

Great relaxing vacation.!

  • 4 of 5

I only had a few issues with my stay. Noise travels on the canal. Few big chain stores. Mainly mom and pop stores that charged way too much. Drove to Nags Head 3 out of 7 days just to have something to do. Also, the natives were not at all friendly

Very peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our vacation. Not touristy at all. Very quiet and relaxing. Kids loved fishing in ocean at sunset, and crabbed all day in the canal. Family loved kayaking and canoeing too.

Wonderful stay at this beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Outer Banks for over 30 years and this cottage stands out as one of my favorites. We love the location in Frisco because it still has the old traditional charm of OBX. It is close to many great locally owned stores and restaurants but is also quietly kept in a quaint neighborhood. I felt very safe letting my children walk and bike around the neighborhood. The cottage is 5 minutes from 2 great beaches and just a hop, skip, and jump from Hatteras Village. We loved the one story living and the open feel of the cottage. It was very clean when we arrived and beautifully decorated. A home away from home. The view of the canal from the great room is wonderful and immediately brings a welcoming, relaxing, and warm sense of peace when you arrive. We all loved being able to wake up and go kayaking, or canoeing on the canal before hitting the beach for the rest of the day. Truly a hidden gem, and exceeded our expectations. The owner was very easy to work with and provided us great customer service. I would highly recommend this property, but would also like to keep it a secret to ensure being able to book again. We had great meals at the Sandbar Grille, and Rusty's. The fish tacos at Buxton Munch Co. are a must. Please take the time to visit the Hatteras Lighthouse if you never have before. Uncle Eddy's has some great ice cream and the folks at Frisco Sandwich Co. were so friendly and helpful. And I must say please take time to visit the adorable Buxton Village Books as it is one of my favorite places on Earth. This will definitely be a property that we hope to book again in the future, it is wonderful!! Thank you!!

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! The home is beautifully decorated. It is incredibly clean. It was a perfect rental home for our family of 5 and our dog. If you are considering this property, there is nothing negative to report---rent it if it is available during your dates.

The location is great. It is a short drive (less than 5 min) to the light house beach and to many other gorgeous ocean and bay beaches. The ferry is also close. It is convenient to everything, yet private and quiet!

We hope to return!
