Brigands Bay House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Water front - Quiet Community - Spectacular Sunsets - Bring your boat!!! This recently updated cottage is the perfect beach getaway. It has the best of both worlds! Enjoy the view off the deck of the canal and Pamlico Sound, or take the short drive to the beach to enjoy more water views.

This cozy 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home is the perfect option for couples or families. Some of the best features of this house include a pool table, Hot tub, dock for your boat, fish cleaning table, screened in porch, assortment of 5 kayaks (accommodate up to 7 people), paddle boat, exterior shower, locked storage area, and charcoal grill.

Also, you cannot forget to take a stroll or bike ride around this picturesque neighborhood. There are simply amazing water views everywhere your look! Not to mention, some of the best areas for fishing, kiteboarding, and surfing are just around the corner.

Visit one of the many lighthouses in the Outer Banks, with the famous Buxton lighthouse just a couple minutes drive away. And don't forget to check out the quaint shoppes of Hatteras Village, just a little further down Route 12.

Our rental is SUNDAY TO SUNDAY. We did that because most rentals are Saturday to Saturday, which means ALOT of traffic and headaches when you are trying to get to your rental. You want to avoid the traffic and start enjoying your vacation on the ride down. You cannot do that if you are sitting in bumper to bumper traffic. Plus, another little known secret is that the Saturday before your check-out is the best beach day, because everyone is leaving, and the check-ins haven't arrived yet!

Keywords: Open concept main living area, bright and cheerful, recently updated.

About The Owner

Working for myself basically means working 24/7, because even when I am not at work, I am thinking about work. Even on the weekends it seems there is always something to do, whether at work, or around the house. So, I don't truly feel like I 'clock out' until I reach the Outer Banks. For me, it takes an 8-1/2 hour drive from New Jersey to Hatteras Island, where there are no distractions, in order to completely relax!

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Frisco

Vacationing on Hatteras Island for the last 16 years, I fall more in love with the area every year. Traveling to the Outer Banks was the experience I looked forward to most throughout the year. I would start missing the island the moment I left, every year getting more and more excited to go back. Often times I would stay at Frisco Campground for a couple of days before our rental started, because I am simply trying to sneak in a couple of extra beach days. Also, I enjoy Hatteras Island most with my friends and family. There is nothing better than a campfire at night with your best friends, laughing and joking, looking at the fire and the stars. All in all, everything about Hatteras Island truly feels like the best vacation ever. Some vacations are exhausting, Hatteras simply takes your cares away. I sincerely hope you enjoy the Outer Banks, and my home, as much as I do!

What makes this house unique

Got enough kayaks for the whole family, enjoy wine in the hot tub after a long hard day at the beach.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a wonderful stay at Good Timing in Frisco. Upon arrival the house was bright and clean. The layout is very open and inviting. Our party consisted of my husband and me, my parents (seniors), and my 2 young children (ages 9 and 5), and EVERYONE loved our stay. The canal was a great feature - it was calm enough to take my little ones kayaking in and super close to the sound, which was convenient for my fisherman husband. We even had friends who were vacationing in Southern Shores come visit for the day and enjoy kayaking. The rooms were cozy but perfectly fine for just sleeping since we spent most of our time in the living room/kitchen area and the screened in porch when we weren't at the beach. We love Hatteras Island and typically have stayed in a motel but having a beautiful house to stay in was such a treat. We will definitely return! Thanks, Peter, for being so attentive and for sharing your wonderful home. My little son told me that I needed to "Call Mr. Peter and tell him we are buying his house." Thanks again!

Summer vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

This rental house was incredibly well kept and clean. The owner was very quick to respond to my email prior to and during our stay. The hot tub and kayaks were a lot of fun for my whole family. The house has a great back yard and very pretty view. It is also close to the ocracoke ferry and hatteras beach access. I would defenitely stay there again if we vacationed in the outer banks!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a home for the week and this home was more than we ever expected! Close driving distance to public access to beach. Enough kayaks for whole family. We were able to relax, have fun and have such a meaningful time as a family. Will never forget this vacation. We hated to leave!

The owner was easily accessible if we needed anything and responsiveness was quick and kind. Thank you!

The perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

Good Timing was the perfect choice for our first OBX vacation! The house is very well maintained and was spotless upon our arrival. The whole family enjoyed the canoes and kayaks very much, it was so much fun to row down the canal and watch the sunset on the sound. The neighbors are really friendly and we felt very welcome. All communications with the owner was prompt and super helpful. We highly recommend this property!

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations. Kitchen is fully stocked. It was the first time I've ever walked into a kitchen that wasn't my own and didn't lack for anything. The open concept of the main living areas are perfection. My kids and husband enjoyed the pool table and Xbox. There is a full size washer and dryer; I expected to have one of the apartment small capacity types so I was delightfully surprised to find a full size washer/dryer set. The deck provided a great view of the sunset on the sound and was another one of my favorite features of the house.

We took the kayaks out into the sound which is just right around the bend. You just simply put the kayaks in the water from the dock on the property. Fishing....we fished right off the dock every day. I caught countless numbers of fish, nothing huge of course but still fun and I didn't need a big pole for that. I simply brought my freshwater pole and had a blast. There are also crab pots at the house. We caught several blue crabs with them. Most we put back into the water but we did keep a few and had ourselves steamed crab for dinner one night.

This was our first time visiting OBX and renting a house. Both firsts have been an amazing experience and will not be our last! This house is very inviting and is a great place to have genuine family time. Here's a couple of tips if you're a first timer too, bring toilet paper with you. When we arrived there was one roll there that the previous tenant had left behind but should someone not leave any you could arrive to a house with none. Also bring any pillows or extra blankets you may want/need. There are no pillows on the beds and the only blankets in the house are the thin quilt like comforters on the beds. Lastly, if you require dark bedrooms to sleep bring an eye mask. The bedrooms all have blinds but I need total darkness to sleep. The sun rises on the back of the house which is where two of the three bedrooms sit. The second I see light I'm wide awake; this helped with my fishing game but not so much in the making sure I had plenty of sleep. Sleep is overrated when the fishing is as good as it was this week anyways.

The house is also close to lots of beach outlets that are not crowded at all. We visited the week before July 4 and practically had the place to ourselves. Great restaurants near by. Definitely try Gingerbread House bakery!!!

Great House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Beautiful house, very clean. Loved the screened in porch in the mornings! Kids loved fishing and crabbing off the dock! We were close enough to the beach that it wasn't a problem. Nice and quiet neighborhood! A lot of extras in the storage closet in carport that saved us a lot of money! (beach chairs, boogie boards, crab pots) People in neighborhood very nice! I would definitely recommend Good Timing for your vacation. Pete was great and checked on us several times to make sure everything was going ok! The only thing I would tell you that we didn't know is that the trash people will not pick up garbage in bags on the street, all the garbage has to be in can! You will not be disappointed by renting this property!
