We loved our stay in this house. It was well arranged and equipped. The sunroom was perfect for reading and games. It’s a very short trip to the beach access. Michelle was wonderful to work with!
Fripp Island most beautiful and relaxing vacation destination.
Very large spacious home in a great location. Easy walking distance to beach.
This is our twelfth summer vacationing at Fripp. This home provided one of the best locations to island amenities and a wonderful beach access that was within walking distance. There were a few details that would have made this one of the nicer places we have stayed..... 1) the home was dirtier than any home we have rented - owner did refund cleaning deposit. 2) trash pickup was nonexistent the entire week, we literally had to keep the raccoons away. 3) the house seemed to be in mid remodeling stages. Items were not completed yet or were left undone. Paint coming off, outlet cover off, doors not closing - or opening correctly. 4) the golf cart was unsafe. We used one we rented from Sutcliffe because the one provided had steering issues that would make it swerve erratically.
We loved Fripp
This was our first time to Fripp and we loved it. The home was a great location and we really enjoyed the layout. The kitchen was great and I loved the furniture. It’s obvious the owners have made many improvements and are still working on some, but we really enjoyed our time at the home and on the island. The owners were great with answering my annoying questions, too!
Deceived but overall ok
The listing photos look amazing!! When we arrived the deception hit from the start! The home has been renovated with a lot of particle board being used and that horrible smell hit you in the face when you opened the door.... candle, febreeze & it was tolerable. Checking the kitchen - refrigerator had about 20 bottles of used condiments, pantry had used food - cereal, peanut butter, and more - we threw everything out & took out the trash. On to the bathroom downstairs - there was someone’s bowel movement waiting to greet us!!! Gross - we flushed for them & sprayed Lysol. The bedroom doors are solid wood - but the craftsmanship of hanging & painting was very poor. You could see roller markers on the inside room of one, the latch on one fell off, they needed to be trimmed down to fit the frame so they opened & closed. The living room... tall ceiling with areas that had been patched but not sanded & painted. You couldn’t reach the ceiling fan and the fan part wasn’t on a remote of any kind. Every room had lightbulbs missing / not working - there were extra bulbs in the house, we changed what we could / needed. The pantry door didn’t close due to the baseboards. No blender or mixer, but the other dishes / serving needs were great. There were some safety concerns: electrical outlets not covered, not flush with the wall, handrail for stairs was loose and wobbled, no guardrail for upstairs deck accessible from a bedroom. There were wasps / bees who had made homes outside but attached to the home - there was wasp spray in the garage we used. The locked thermostat was set to 78 when we arrived - the owner answered when I called and she immediately changed temp to 73 as I requested. Now... the openness of the kitchen / dining / living room was perfect, huge deck with grill & picnic table, loosely screened porch off downstairs bedroom, big bathrooms - each person gets 1 towel & 1 washcloth. The location was good, quiet, close to everything. The golf cart drifts on it’s own - dangerous steering. Overall, our trip was great - a week at Fripp, the house is cute & has so much potential but the craftsmanship is poor, and something’s need to be repaired. Our concerns were addressed quickly by owner who refunded the cleaning fee and the cleaners did come the next day after we had already cleaned.
I’ll give Michelle the best rating possible. I would like to stay with her again! The house has everything you need and the beach is very nice.
We're delighted that you enjoyed your time at Dragon's Treasure! You and your party were great guests and we look forward to hosting you again sometime soon.
