About Keith McCulloch
We are a Father and Son team originally from Pennsylvania who came to Cape Hatteras in 1982 and fell in love with the clean empty beaches and the warm waters of the Pamlico Sound and the Frisco surf. Keith (son) lives in Avon and manages the Frisco property. You'll be getting personal service directly from the owners.
Keith McCulloch purchased this House in 2010
Why Keith McCulloch chose Frisco
We built this custom beach house for our family to enjoy the best of the Outerbanks. We love the warm waters and beaches of the southern Outerbanks. The Ocean water is warmer and the waves are more gentle on this south facing beach than the east facing beaches just a few miles away. It makes all the difference on the south side! The south side of the Island has softer sand, smoother beaches, warmer water, less people, gentle waters, quieter neighborhoods and its so much more laid back than many other beach destinations. Most of Hatteras Island is national seashore, so there's lots of room for people to spread out. The beaches are world-class; in fact, our beach was rated #4 best beach in USA in 2010.
What makes this House unique
Its all about the location. Surrounded by water the house has water views from every window. You'll have unique access to both Ocean and Sound from one location. Simply the best spot for all Outer Banks activity's.

Very clean! In a great location. Property manager is such a good guy to deal with. Couldn’t ask for any better!
Absolutely lovely, and stunning views! Definitely this one!
We had the best week, and this house was a huge part of that. So close to the beach, and the sound right in the backyard- it does not get any better than that! House is spacious, and well laid out. Outside shower was a god send with all the sand, and the clotheslines on the middle deck for sandy beach towels and swim suits were perfect. King beds were all super comfortable, but do not know about the bunk beds, as we did not use those. Sure those are the same quality as the rest of the house though, which is very nice. Owner always responded to our questions immediately, and was most helpful. I would recommend stopping for groceries at Connor's in Buxton or Food Lion in Avon on the way to the house. The smaller closer grocery stores have stuff, but being smaller, the variety is going to be limited. They were great for swinging by to get the items we forgot, and the ice cream cake we got for our son's 10th Birthday. We are definitely coming back to this house in the future, I cannot imagine staying anywhere else while on the Outer Banks! Thanks for sharing your amazingly lovely house with us for the week!
thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! I am happy that you'all had a great time! please come back next year! -Keith
We loved this house!
My best friends and I stayed here while celebrating our 50th birthdays. It was such a peaceful and beautiful area. Although we didn't take advantage of the sound side, other than to watch the breath-taking sunsets and windsurfers, we walked to the ocean-side beach every day. We had such a relaxing time. The house had everything we needed and was absolutely beautiful. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly. We took advantage of the many souvenir shops around and local restaurants. We even took the ferry to Ocracoke. The beaches are absolutely gorgeous. We could not have asked for a more relaxing vacation!
thank you for taking the time to post a review, i am very happy that you'all had a great time at MaMaHooHoo. Please come back next year!
House was very clean with large open area and bedrooms. View of the sound was great but the area to get into the water was not the best - can't really say there is a beach there. (ocean side is about a 5 min walk to beach) Can get in but have to walk thru a marshy kind of area. Owner was very easy to work with and responded to any inquiries quickly.
Hello. Thanks for the review. I just wanted to clarify for other readers...The house is located in a unique part of the island that allows both Sound Side water access and Ocean side beach access without having to pack up the car and drive any where:-) so you have access to the best of both Hatteras Island worlds. The Sound side access is directly behind the house, a 50 foot raised manicured grass pathway leads to the warm shallow waters of the Pamilco sound, popular sound side activities are Kayaking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Fishing, Windsurfing, Kiteboarding, the sound side access is free from obstruction (no rocks, no docks, no pilings etc.. nothing but grass and soft sand) and the grass path leads to the water with a soft sandy bottom with a gently ingress/egress, perfect for launching a kayak, SUP or for just wading out into the water. The sound waters are super safe and fun for the kids to spend all day chasing fish and crabs in the clean, clear warm shallow waters. The Ocean side is in front of the house and the ocean beach is a 3 minute walk, a wooden board walk guides you thru the dunes and leads you to one of the most spectacular beaches on the east coast, this open easy access beach is perfect for just beaching, swimming, surfing and enjoying yourself in an uncrowded clean soft sand beach with pristine waters. Hatteras Island beaches including this very beach are consistently awarded one of the top ten beaches in the USA by Dr. Beach. I’ll post some more photos of the sound and ocean beach access.:-)
