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 Brigands Bay

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.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful canal front home in Frisco. It is very well equipped and comes with linens which was a big plus. It has a convection oven and filtered water at the sink which was great as it saved us having to buy bottled water. It's located just a short drive to stores and beaches. We loved the fenced in backyard for the dogs too. It was nice not needed to put them on a leash every time they went out. The kayaks and canoe were fun too. I would definitely recommend this home for anyone with a small family that doesn't need to be right next to the ocean.

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in, the view wowed us! The pics did not do it justice, we took the canoe out for a ride and it was wonderful! My grandson loved crabbing from the pier each day! The house was clean and was stocked with everything we needed to make meals and enjoy our vacation! The open concept made it great for children. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

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.
