About Arnold Freeman

My family and I built this beach house many years ago, we have updated and improved it many times because we love to spend time at Ocean Isle. I am retired and love to have my children and grandchildren around, so we make sure there is plenty of room and lots of fun things to do. It's easy for the kids to cross the street and go to the beach in the morning and the house is so close, they can scamper back for lunch. We have a book collection for beach readers with a 'take one - leave one' policy. Many renters send us pictures of their vacation time and we also ask them to write reviews of local restaurants and attractions in our book of memories. We want you to enjoy your vacation so please call me if you have any questions.

My brother and his family travel from Texas every year to spend a week. My family lives in SC so we always invade while they are here and let all the kids re-aquaint with each other. There are always some great Kodak moments and fun memories that will last a lifetime.

Summer is great but Spring weekends at Ocean Isle are truely special. We arrive Friday afternoon just in time to enjoy the sunset, do a little work around the house on Saturday, and then have the rest of the weekend to walk on the beach, play a little golf and enjoy a few cold ones with old friends at Sharky's.

If you decide to visit Freeman's Place, I know you will have as much fun as we do. Your stay will be easy, comfortable and relaxing. Don't forget to take pictures and write in our guest book - your memories are part of ours.



Why Arnold Freeman chose Ocean Isle Beach

OIB is a great, centally located, vacation spot. The town is very family oriented and the beach is beautiful, wide and pristine. We are about 30 minutes to the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach and going north, about 30 minutes from great adventures in the Wilmington area.

There is plenty of shopping in the area from small boutiques and antique stores to the wonderful vacation souvenier stores to buy that T-shirt.

What makes this house unique

One of my favorite rituals at our beach house is cooking breakfast for all my grandchildren and their friends. They all sit at the counter and watch as I create the World's Best Pancakes in all sorts of crazy shapes. The boys always want animals and I save the hearts for my girls! We have two Large porches we spend a lot of time Hammock or Rockers.

My Mother, who is 89 years old, holds court at the end of the dining room table, quietly observing all that goes on. It's my job to keep that coffee cup of hers's never good when I hear, 'Arnold, my coffee cup is empty.' Her younger sister always arrives with a lucious Honey-Baked Ham and the 2 of them hold down the fort while we all head to the beach.

One of our favorite features of the house is the downstairs - open air showers. When we return from the beach, the little ones pile into the showers, get all clean and come upstairs ready to go. We really have a house with 5 showers so it makes getting ready for dinner very easy.

The night winds down and the young ones go to bed, that's when we can all sit on the front porches and rock the night away. Someone decided all the rocking chairs need to be painted pastel, beach colors. She thought this could be done in a few hours...3 days later, 1 chair is painted aqua. I hope you will see more rocking chairs painted in more colors when you arrive at Freeman's Place for your vacation.

PS - the paint is in the closet downstairs in case you feel creative!

We had a great stay in July 2017 at Freeman's place. It is just like the pictures. Plenty of space for all 10 of us and our dogs. Location is perfect and right across from a beach access. Kitchen is well stocked and all the appliances worked great during our stay. The golf cart was definitely a plus as well. Arnold was easy to work with and we can't wait to go back again in 2018!

We loved Freeman's Place!! It is a great house for entertaining and large families, especially since we could bring our four-legged baby. We very much enjoyed the covered porches and the golf-cart. When we arrived, the cleaning folks were finishing up and the house smelled and looked clean and wonderful. Thanks to the Freeman's for a lovely vacation!

We cannot say enough about our stay at Freeman's Place! From the onset our experience was great. Quick responses from the owner who was also friendly and easy to work with. We were also greeted with a bottle of wine! This home had easy beach access - very close by (as advertised!!!)-- and the golf cart -- made going to the beach quick and fun without struggling to carry a lot of items a long way. The house was well stocked and clean! With a welcoming curb appeal, comfortable porches, and a wonderful large open floor plan! The bedrooms are well kept, spread out, and comfortable yet private. This pet friendly home actually exceeded my expectations! Driving up on the golf cart, sandy chairs and umbrellas can be easily stored and rinsed off in a specific area with a hose and hangers. Then two showers are there for rinsing or bathing before going inside. Freeman's Place thought of everything to make a stay at Ocean Isle enjoyable and comfortable! The outdoor (down stairs) ice maker is great for filling up your cooler! But, the golf cart just was the icing on the cake! We rode every morning while sipping coffee to catch the sunrise, late morning to the beach and back, after dinner to tour and catch the sunset or to get ice cream! And, to top it off my pet could go! Great experience! We will definitely return to Freeman's Place!

Indian Summer at Ocean Isle Beach

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Freeman's Place. My husband loved driving around the golf cart when we went fishing at the pier (or dropping the ladies off at the beach access.) There was an amazing amount of room for all of us to stay with the 5 bedrooms, and it was great that each room had their own tv. Being unfamiliar with DirectTV, however, it was difficult to find the channels we wanted to watch. We loved playing games at the big kitchen table, and also on the second floor deck. The hammock on the second floor was great also. Several of us napped there during the week. We especially loved this home because it is pet friendly and we like taking our four-legged friend with us. Great vacation home.

Couldn't Ask For More!

When my wife and I decided to turn her family reunion into a mini vacation I searched VRBO for a beach house that was close to her reunion in Calabash, NC. We were both impressed with the photos and location of the Freeman House and, after reading numerous positive reviews, decided to rent. The fact that we could bring our small dog along was a deciding factor as well. When we arrived we were quite pleased that the house was very clean and looked exactly like the pictures online. Arnold (the owner) left us a bottle of wine on the kitchen counter which was a nice touch. He stopped by briefly after our arrival to introduce himself and answer any questions we had. Over the next several hours the house filled with kids and grandkids (13 people total) and all were comfortably accommodated. The location was perfect! We were right across the street from the beach and a very short distance to restaurants, shops and entertainment. The included golf cart was a nice bonus that we used on several occasions. We greatly enjoyed our 4 day stay at the Freeman Place on Ocean Isle and plan to return next year. If you are looking for a large, clean and comfortable beach house I absolutely recommend this property.

Great Stay

First time at Freeman's home and great experience. Great communication with Arnold while reserving the home and quick responses any time we emailed him. We appreciated his personal call to us during our stay to check in with us. Location to beach access good. Home as advertised. Will stay again.
