Great location and beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

Location is great, bedrooms fit our 6 adult, 5 children family well. Kitchen is well equipped and beds are comfortable. Toilets didn't flush well, but we managed and had a great time.

Owner's Response: Dear Barefoot family, I am glad you enjoyed Fripp. The toilets are older high end Kohler toilets that need the handle held for a few seconds. Sorry you had trouble with the flushing. Mary

Great family trip!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at fripp. The house was the perfect size for our 3 family group trip (10 guests in all) 6 adults and 4 kids the youngest a baby. The house had a high chair that was helpful. It was just a very short walk to the beach also. Mary was very helpful and responsive via email.

Great Family Beach Vacation Home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family has taken "family vacations" for the past 8 years to the Low Country and discovering Fripp and this great vacation home was a joy! We loved the short walk to the beach, deer in the yard in the mornings and putting around in the golf carts to discover the island amenities (two cards provided with the home are a plus!). Our granddaughters also were delighted to witness the emerging of baby turtles mere feet from our beach access path! Their little eyes watched in amazement as the island naturalists aided tiny babies to the ocean! Oh, and we can't forget being able to pet a baby shark that a young fisherman caught on the beach one afternoon!

The deck and screened in porch were super for relaxing in the evening and with friends. The bedroom accommodations and the layout for a family are also a plus. The beds were all very comfortable and the general location of this home on the island lends to all the added attractions such as restaurants, playgrounds, small groceries and a delicious deli!

Johnson's Tavern and Dockside remain our favorites for fresh seafood and we were glad to see Boondocks was open again! You can't beat the great seafood dinners and great prices for your dinners out.

Mary was super attentive to any needs we had and was so very helpful in arranging our stay as we had never been to Fripp Island. This great beach home is a recommendation our family would give to others making the trip to a great island of fun!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing week at Fripp Island. We had such a great time, I felt obligated to write a review. First I wanted to mention that this was my first experience renting a home from the VRBO website. I have been warned of many scams that exist, but book with confidence, This house is legit!

We planned our trip with my brother and his family, so there were four adults and four children in our party. The house was perfect for two families and we even had an extra room that we didn't use during our stay. The upstairs loft included two double beds, a single bed and a small couch along with it's own private bathroom. This ended up being the perfect spot for the four children to share. They felt like they had their own space to play away from the adults. Downstairs there were three bedrooms. The master bedroom ha a king size bed and had its' own private bath. The second bedroom had a queen (or a double) and the third bedroom had two twins. All bedrooms had a nice size closet, and were furnished nicely to make you feel at home.

This kitchen area was small but very efficient. We were pleasantly surprised how well stocked the kitchen was in regards to cooking utensils, pots & pans, and serving dishes. As an added bonus there was a mini-fridge near the kitchen table which was perfect for keeping bottled water and other beverages.

The best part of the house was the location. The house was situated in the center of the island on the main road, within walking distance to the main club house, Olympic size pool and tennis courts. And don't let the pictures fool you, the backyard faces direct beach access so it is almost like being beach front.

Fripp Island is very unique. The deer are abundant and we had deer walk through the backyard on a daily basis. The beach itself is very large during low tide, and we had a great time playing Bocce Ball and building sand castles. The pools are amazing! The resort has five pools to choose from, and we spent most of our time at the Olympic pool due to the location to the house, but the pools located on the south side of the island are great for a day with little children.

The only downside to our entire vacation was the islands' distance from Beaufort (the closest grocery store) so before you go, plan ahead, make a list and stop on your way to the island. I would highly recommend this house! Thank you for offering such an affordable place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. You have summed up our home perfectly from the guest's point of view! There is just one small clarification to avoid confusion in the future. The two beds in the loft are queen beds and the bed in the second bedroom on the main level is also a queen bed (no double beds in the home).

Like a treehouse...but with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this private treehouse...it's very family-friendly, with lots of room! Our kids loved the upstairs room, which lets them spread out. We enjoyed the beach, pools, and tennis, and just sitting on the deck unseen. Deer come right into the yard!

Fripp has so much to do...this house fits the rustic beauty of the island.

Tranquil setting and great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this rental on several occasions. The location is excellent; a short distance to an uncrowded beach and close to tennis courts and pool. House is spacious. Shared with two other couples who equally enjoyed their stay.
