With attention - could be Great
This home appears to be a pure investment property. I say that because I believe a lot of details would be handled better if the owner spent time in the rental. I could be completely wrong in my assessment but this is what I experienced. The package of information was a great idea if it had been current. The articles were photo copied many times over and weren't legible. The home itself is beautifully decorated and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the layout is very nice. The location of the home is good too, across from a park if you have little ones but not a short walk to the pool or beach. It is the details that although stand alone are not significant, they begin to add up and for the price you do expect some of these basics to be covered. There was not a rental book/guide with the house - at least not that we found. The materials sent ahead of time were probably suppose to cover this need however the information was not always there or accurate. The WIFI codes in the materials were outdated and you had to discover the codes on a piece of paper on the kitchen wall to login. There is apparently a problem with the cable line into the house as most all the TV's had an extremely grainy picture. We troubleshot over an hour and could not resolve the poor picture quality. The coffee maker in the kitchen did not have any filters provided nor did the materials indicate what type of coffee maker was provided so that we could provide our own. There were no trash bags provided. The materials ask you to move the trash cans to the curb on trash day but no trash day was given. The kitchen at first glance is well stocked but once you start cooking you realize it is missing some key supplies. For ex. there was only 1 serving bowl. No platters or larger bowls. There is one oven mit - no other hot pads. A grater would be nice as a few storage containers. The guest bedroom did not have a working overhead light - could have been a blown bulb?? There were no luggage racks and the towels are subcontracted to a service and the quality was poor. These are all very little things that could easily not bother most people. The location of the home is nice and as said before the decorating is very pretty. If the few things are corrected above this could be a great rental.

I actually had the chance to stay in this home back in 2005, my first trip to Fripp Island. My best friend grew up spending summers at Fripp with her family. Her dream was to get married on the island and in 2005 that became her reality. Her family rented this home for them to stay and invited me, her maid of honor, to stay with her. It was an amazing week on so many levels but being in this home played a huge role in it being a great experience. Fripp is such a great island, a fabulous place to take your family between the natural setting, the beach, the pools, the deer, the golf courses, the activities - all the homes are great but honestly, being on the canal is really unique. This home is perfect and the fact it is on the canal makes it special. It provides a private retreat, the dock invites you to drink coffee and watch the sun come up, or hang out and watch the stars at night. You can go fishing right off the private dock. It's close enough to get to all the action but allows you to just enjoy being "home" at the same time. A perfect home! We now return to Fripp every summer with our two young children, I always remember the amazing time at this house the fondest!

My husband and I have rented from the Barnes now for 3 years. Their houses are awesome and their locations are perfect. You are right in the middle between the beach and the kids pool. You also get front row view of the playground and basket ball court. This will be our 7year vacationing to FRIPP . We wouldn't rent from anyone else.

This property is for all those that want good family memories and being able to relax. My boys and I have already stayed here 2 summers and are planning on this summer 2011. Having the private dock to fish, crab & shrimp is priceless. My boys run to the dock the second we pull up. My older son caught an eel within seconds! They hang crab cages off the dock and run out every morning & evening to see what treasures we may have. They are able to catch their own bait to fish off the landing just down the road. The location allows your kids to play at the playground (across the street) & bike to the pool (2 minutes away) "on their own"! Sitting out on the spacious screened in back porch in the evening is quiet and relaxing! I love sitting there and talking with the family & friends of all the fun memories from day to day and year to year! Each summer we have a smoothie making competition to see if we can out do last year's..what fun! Thank you to the property owners for always making our stay feel warm and like it is home. My boys consider it their summer home and are always planning the next summer the minute we leave. I hope they keep this going for generations! Yes the beds are very comfortable and it is very clean! The Marina is just down the road to get all fishing supplies and small items you may have forgot at home. There are restaurants and A food court close by for those who do not want to cook. Great ice cream! When my boys were younger we would get our PJ's on and ride on the golf cart to get the evening ice cream! Again the owners are very helpful and make your vacation just that "A Vacation". Enjoy your time at this property and hope your family memories last for years to come!

Wonderful accommodations for large family
Wonderful accommodations for large family
This was our first time renting this property and we were so very pleased with everything. Our large family of eight was very comfortable with the accommodations. The home is extremely modern and very tastefully decorated. Being on the canal was a plus for us as we were able to bring our boat. The photos and description were accurate; you can be confident of what you will see when you view the website. Joan was most helpful in answering all questions. I would recommend this property without any hesitation.

About the owner: Hello..........I am Joan Barnes. My husband Dave and I own this great home on Fripp Island that backs up to the Tidal Creek Canal which leads directly to the ocean. We use the dock to fish and crab and sit outside a night with a great glass of wine and watch the stars. We invite you to bring your boat or jet ski and explore the marshes. Nothing is easier than to jump right in the boat and take off for a afternoon ride without having to go back and forth to the marina.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Creek, Fripp Cottages:
Fripp is great fun for families of all ages. We fell in love with the place and had to own there.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is ideally located for families with children who enjoy going to Davis Love Park. The home is located directly across from the park so parents can sit on the front porch and watch their children in the park or sit on the back porch and watch the kids fishing and crabbing off the back deck.
