Wonderful Fripp Island Experience
"My family (15 total from grandparents to 2 year old) stayed in this house in April and we loved it! The reservation process was easy, the house was clean and well maintained when we arrived, and it was nice to rent a beach house with linens included instead of the usual rental hassle of other locations. The views and beach access were the highlights! It doesn't get any easier than walking down a short flight of stairs to arrive at a wide, quiet beach. The outdoor shower/wash station was an added bonus. We did have to keep an eye on the tides; high tide brought crashing waves to our access point (and the public access point beside the house) that was high enough our littlest family members wouldn't be able to walk through it - but it really only affected short periods of time when the tide was at it's highest. This house has a much easier beach access point than many of the others around it that include long boardwalks and/or wading through tidal pools. We will definitely return!"

"We got to spend a week in this beach house in July of 2014, and it was a delight! The house was clean, well-stocked and comfortable. By far, our favorite room was the screened-in porch as we spent most of our time in the house there.
I would happily recommend this house to VRBO users!"

"This house was perfect. Not too far of a drive to Parris Island. Had more than enough rooms and space. The home was stocked well and very accessible to the beach. Great communication with the property owner. We will definitely rent from again."

"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."
