There is a private pool with slide and jacuzzi tub and a dock leading directly to the ocean. The house is spacious (all bedrooms are large) and has lots of windows including skylights in the main living room. It has an open design with plenty of room for hanging out inside and outside. There is a separate apartment underneath the main part of the house where a family could stay and have their own privacy. The apartment consists of a bedroom, bathroom, living room and bunkbeds with a kitchenette. There are balconies off the 2 oceanfront bedrooms upstairs and a full back porch that covers the entire back of the house and overlooks the ocean.

About Aimee Frink

We designed and built our beach house in 1984. We live close by so can accommodate any needs right away. We've been renting the house every summer since 1984 and have many repeat visitors.

Unfortunately, we have one less than stellar review on this site from August of 2011 and I am frequently asked to address it. The referenced rental was at the end of the summer and some of the points made were valid at the time. ALL were addressed immediately when pointed out as they would have been if reported at the beginning of or during the rental period. Many of the points were highly exaggerated and I truly believe the guest who wrote that was just unhappy in general with her choice and so listed any and every detail she could find that wasn't perfect. She sent me a list of these things on the last day of her 2 week rental asking for a partial refund and it was obviously too late for us to improve her experience. We have had no similar complaints before or since this review. Rest assured, our house is safe and very clean and everything works. If something doesn't work please let us know right away and we will get it resolved as soon as possible.

Why Aimee Frink chose Ocean Isle Beach

Our family has lived in the area for decades and wanted a place at the beach that also allowed us to maintain some privacy.

What makes this house unique

We particularly enjoy the view of the sunrise from the back porch but there are so many things to do nearby such as fishing, swimming, biking, golf, sailing, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the place very much as did our children and grandchildren. We could not have asked for a nicer week and a more wonderful way to celebrate our 50th anniversary. The home is absolutely lovely and the graciousness of your mother was greatly appreciated.

Since we have plans next year for a European trip we will not be going to the beach, but thank you for the heads up.

Also, our trip to Captain Johns was great as usual.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the beach! This house was extra large and the space was accommodating for everyone. The open concept was conducive to hanging out and working puzzles which we like to do. The bedrooms are HUGE! We enjoyed beach access and the sound dock and actually rented paddle boards for the week.

Would rent again

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property for our large extended family. The common areas are spacious and the bedrooms were over-sized and comfortable. The water to water access provided our active family with many options for activities. We enjoyed the pool, direct beach access and the dock area on the sound. We spent every afternoon on the back deck and even enjoyed many meals out there. The owners were gracious and assisted us with the few minor issues we had. Overall, it was a great rental and we will be back!

Renters Beware!

  • 2 of 5

We have rented a lot of houses via the Internet over the years as we are living abroad for the time being. This was by far the most disappointing. The location, pool, and open floor plan are great assets, almost justifying the higher price. Unfortunately the house was poorly maintained and very dated, causing us to apologize over and over to our guests. 

Specifically, the only half bath for guests had a hole in the wall and the toilet didn't flush properly, there was no handle on the oven door (they are waiting till there are no renters to fix this!), a broken ice maker caused them to remove a cabinet door exposing an area unsafe for our grandchildren, broken/faulty cabinet and trash/storage doors in the kitchen, LOTS of dishware but only 2 small cabinets for food... The list goes on with smaller inconveniences like no strainers or stoppers for the sinks, and non-working fans in 3 of the 4 baths.

Also, there are no sheets and towels for this house so tack on additional cost and inconvenience for your beach trip. Oh, and just plan on paying the cleaning fee as the requirements ask for things such as cleaning the windows inside and out!

To be fair, they did send someone out to fix the AC twice the first week when we called and might have addressed some of these other things, but I don't expect to have to do all of this on my vacation. My advice; Look before you leap! For the asking price there are much better options available on the island.

A wonderful place to get away to

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this home for a week during July 2011. The house met all our needs and exceeded our expectations. The home was clean and comfortable, and we loved the open floor plan. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of items to make meal preparation easy and efficient. The pool is a great size and design and proved very refreshing after long days on the beach. There is no shortage of seating inside and out. The owner is extremely responsive and a delight to work with. I highly recommend this property if you and your family are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the quiet, beautiful beach of Ocean Isle.
