About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 7

Our 3BR/1BA beach cottage is nestled into an uncluttered corner of Frisco's cozy Brigand's Bay. Two of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open onto a screened-in back porch that overlooks an undeveloped salt-water marsh with a peripheral view of the Pamilco Sound. Each of these bedrooms have queen-sized beds, chest-of-drawers w/mirrors, and closets. In the remaining bedroom is a top-twin/full-bottom bunk bed, also with chest-of-drawers and closet. Fresh colors and clean furniture, berber carpet, and central-air throughout, our property also has a recently renovated and expanded kitchen and dining area. Other amenities include cable TV, high-speed Internet access, phone, and washer-dryer combination unit. In addition to the screened-in back porch, the front of the house has a sundeck and a short lower-deck (both equipped w/Adirondack chairs), a boardwalk leading to comfortable canal-front benches w/table on the edge of a bulkhead. A pivoting marine ladder provides direct access to boarding canoes/kayaks/small craft up to 22ft. An outdoor shower helps keep everyone and thing free of sand while a charcoal grill makes sure the fish & steaks have the right flavor.

About Daniel Miller

We are a (grand)mother-son team from Kent, Ohio who have always retreated to the Outer Banks since the early 1970s. Patricia Miller, the owner, was a 3rd-grade school teacher for 30 years, then the administrator of a foster care & adoption agency for 11 years. Daniel Miller, the son, is a former librarian, now PhD student in the English department of Kent State University, and father to Henry & Isabel, the next generation of Hatteras Island enthusiasts.

Daniel Miller purchased this cottage in 1981

Why Daniel Miller chose Frisco

Having traveled all over the country for many summers, it became apparent no place suited the Millers like OBX. After purchasing the lot in 1981, the house was built largely by husband/father, Dennis, in 1982. It was always meant to be a place for our family to spend time together, to experience the beauty of the area, and to enjoy life.

Our stay at Someday

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a lovely week at Someday. The house was nice and clean when we arrived, and was very well furnished in my opinion. The screened in porch was very relaxing, and we enjoyed the quietness of the backyard canal and the quiet neighborhood. Daniel is very nice to work with, and gave us great suggestions for all of our Hatteras questions. We would definitely recommend staying here!!

We were impressed when we first walked in. Most excellent cottage. Very clean, beautifully decorated. Nice neighborhood for evening strolls or bike rides. Owner was very nice and responded quickly. We definitely would like to come back. Felt like home away from home but only better.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

In the numerous years I have been coming to Hatteras this has been one of the best. The care package upon arrival was unexpected and very welcome. The house itself was roomy and comfortable. The maintenance person, Mark, stopped by and welcomed me to the place and gave me tips about renting equipment and where to go. I had a great time. Even spent one day just at the house lying around. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I look forward to repeating it soon.

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

Someday is just a simply great rental. The owner/manager Daniel is very prompt with request and was a pleasure to work with. they also have an area local named Mark who looks after the place if you have any issues( I didn't have any but was fortunate enough to meet him and wanted to give praise to having this available)The house itself sits a very quite area and offers a little privacy due to the adjacent lots not yet being developed. the view is awesome from either rear porch or from the canal front benches. the house is well equipped and actually has better than average pots, pans and utensils. I guess to sum it up without rambling on my best compliment would be that it felt like a house you could call home. Of course there is always one thing you would change so I would suggest a small fish cleaning table. Thanks for a terrific vacation and hope to stay with you guys again soon.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have rented cottages for many years on Hatteras Island and would have to rank "Someday" at the top. Very clean, extremely well maintained, very well equipped kitchen and tastefully decorated. We really enjoyed how bedrooms open to the rear porch to give amazing views of salt marshes and the canal. The owner Daniel was very accommodating in our dealing with him. Only one very minor complaint would be that outdoor shower is not enclosed to change after getting back from beach. We look forward to staying here next year.
