About The Owner

I have been coming to Hatteras Island since the 1970's. I am an avid surfer and fisherman. My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Frisco and have shared 20 plus years of family vacations here ever since.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2003

Why The Owner chose Frisco

Location, location, location.

Frisco is the perfect spot, remote yet accessible. The beaches are some of the most beautiful and never seem crowded, even at the height of the summer season.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is just a minutes walk to the ocean. With decks on both sides you can enjoy sunrises over the ocean and sunsets over the sound.

Great location for Anglers!

  • 5 of 5

Swinkles gave us everything we needed for our colder-than-usual Spring Break. The location was excellent for trying different spots to fish and the walk to the beach was very short. My son can't wait to return in August for the Spanish mackeral run :)

Nice getaway for a great price!

  • 4 of 5

We (family of 4 including 2 college-aged kids) stayed at Swinkels for Thanksgiving 2016 and had a great, relaxing time. The place was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and pots/pans. The walk to the beach was short and pleasant (although you must be careful of the sand spurs if you have dogs). The location, while away from busy Nags Head, is right on the main street and the cars zoom by. One suggestion would be to fence in the yard for pets (or small children) because of the traffic. All in all, Dennis was great to work with and I would absolutely recommend this place!

Great accomidation at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home because it looked to have everything we needed, at a great location away from all the hustle and bustle, and came at a incredibly fair price compared to many other homes we looked at. The house has everything you need. It looked to have just had the carpet and flooring replaced recently and was very clean. The beach is just a short walk away, but honestly you can hop in the car and have your pick of any strand of beach alone the OBX in just moments as well. If you are looking for a nice accomidation away from it all at the OBX at a very affordable price, I would not hesitate to book this home!

It was great!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Swinkels was wonderful!! It was a short walk or drive to the beach! It was a great location out and away from all the noise but close enough to grocery stores and the Avon pier. The only thing I didn't like was when we were leaving the cleaning ladies were at our house at 10, and we didn't have to leave until 11. It just made us feel rushed to get out of there. Other than that, the house was perfect.
