We had a wonderful time and would rent again!!!
"We just returned from a truly enjoyable, relaxing, memory filled stay on Fripp. We were so sad to leave. This house is lovely, it fit our group comfortably, and was in a nice location with great views of the water. Marla (the homeowner) went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was comfortable. We'd definitely rent this house again!!!"

"I have rented this house for my family 3 years in a row and will definitely be back. The house is clean, well maintained and well appointed. We have had between 7 to 12 people staying at a given time and there is ample space for everyone. It is pet friendly and has a great screened in porch for both people and pets to enjoy. This is a terrific home for a family or multiple families to enjoy a relaxing, casual vacation.
We generally buy groceries and cook most meals at the house but there are a few dining options and bars on the island which are fun, including Bonita Boathouse. There is also the option to take a quick 20-30 minute trip into Beaufort to explore the town and restaurants. We have cooked many meals both using the kitchen amenities and the grill and have had ample tools and utensils to do so.
I love this house's location because of the quiet, less populated beach. While the house is not directly on the beach and you do need to take short walk on the path through the dunes to get to the beach, you can still see the ocean from the porch and walk to the beach within a few minutes. There are plenty of deer and other wildlife to see both at the house and throughout the island. We love to rent bikes at the Marina for the week that we stay to explore the island and nearby Hunting Island State Park. It is also great to explore both the island and the park by running and you can easily find routes for both long and short distance runs. There are two golf courses where my brother in law loves to play when we visit.
The golf cart and amenity cards are a bonus and they also have many beach toys, chairs and puzzles available at the house. The only thing I would recommend is bringing your own beach towels. They have ample towels but they are smaller shower type towels. One other positive is that when we experienced two small maintenance issues (needing a light bulb, internet being down), once reported they were remedied immediately by the maintenance group. The owner is responsive, great to work with and willing to answer questions to help you prepare for your trip.
As I said we will definitely be back and I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a laid back getaway on a beautiful, lush island."

"Great Spring Break trip with 8- and 15-year-olds. Excellent central location 3 minutes (by bike or golf cart) from beach, golf clubhouse, or marina. Very well stocked house with plenty of room to spread out and fantastic marsh views on a quiet end of street location. Fourth trip to Fripp so we knew the drill but would recommend the house to first timers looking to get the "lay of the land". Early morning high tides made it perfect for kayaking out the back door to the marina or down the canal to the Cabana Clubhouse. Perfect weather every day helped too. Put this property high up on your list!"

"Look no further-this is it. we hosted our annual friends getaway weekend and chose this home owned by a very nice couple. from the moment of inquiry she was quick to respond, very informative about details and surrounding area entertainment and restaurants. Communication via text and email was efficient and helped tremendously in my planning. This gorgeous home would suit a weekend with or without children. kitchen is very well stocked and laid out well. We set up a buffet for dinner nd breakfast on the long countertop. Great open floor plan lets you be part of the action anywhere downstairs. Great views from front or back of the house. Literally one minute to the beach access. Loved that she had a charged flashlight for those midnight beach walks. I've never seen stars like that. Comfortable bedrooms where nary a guest should want for anything. A home with good vibes and happy tasteful decor. Made our weekend with special friends even more special. You'll be sorry if you don't experience this home. Thank you so much for sharing such a comfortable family place."
