About Bobbie

We are the Whiting family and we welcome you to enjoy our lovely home in Frisco, NC. We have 5 children so our home is meant to be enjoyed by families who will love and care for it like we do. Mare Vista is a treasure. We hope you are Blessed by your time there!

Bobbie purchased this house in 2008

Why Bobbie chose Frisco

We are surfers who have been coming to the OuterBanks for the past 20 years. We always dreamed of owning a piece of the this beautiful place and narrowed our favorite spot to Frisco. Frisco beaches are the least crowded, warmest waters, softest sand, and most pristine and natural. During certain times of the year, Frisco offers some of the best surfing conditions on the East Coast. Equal distance to our home, are the beaches of Buxton. Depending on the wind an swell, these offer some of the best surf conditions. We chose this location for it's privacy and it's proximity to the surf. We love it and know you will too!

What makes this house unique

Mare Vista is one of only three rental properties on this part of the island, making it feel like your own private island. It's a level of quiet you can't really believe it 'til you experience it! We love the soundfront location for it's peacefulness, the wildlife it brings and the experience of watching the sunset over the water each evening. It also has a sandy beach, which is very rare for soundfront properties. We offer use of our kayaks and canoe, snorkel gear, and a wind surfer. It's like no other place on the island!

Yes I would recommend this house. Yes I would come back and yes I loved it. There were 17 of us but you would never know it. The 3 floors allowed us to spread out. We spent countless hours in the pool. We kayaked everyday. And we drove to several different beaches. We made a trip to the aquarium on a rainy morning and travelled to the Wright Brothers monument too. The rest of the time we spent enjoying the house and all it had to offer. The elevator was a big plus with a handicapped husband as well as sending up groceries. You can't go wrong with this amazing place

An Absolutely Amazing Home on a beautiful location!!!

  • 5 of 5

A most beautiful, well equipped and roomy home to stretch out with the family for a delightful vacation!! This was our first time back to the Outer Banks for a vacation in over 10 years and after spending it at this home we look forward to going back to this house again!! It is well outfitted for both entertaining and cooking all you have to do is show up and bring food...the house provides the rest. The property was very clean and the pool was maintained regularly. You will be treated to amazing sunsets. The property has ample parking, we brought a 26' boat and multiple vehicles and it had plenty of parking for all of it. Thanks for the opportunity to experience your beautiful property and we look forward to doing it again!!!

A wonderful vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a wonderful vacation spot for my whole family! The space was great and the location on the sound was breathtaking. The home was a great fit for us because we had people ranging from 82 to 2 yrs old and it fit everything we needed from the elevator for the older folks to the kayaks for the teenagers to the pool for the younger ones. The property manager was also very nice to work with if there were any problems or questions. If you are looking for a vacation stay that is above and beyond you need to book this house!
