About Elizabeth Christmus

We are a family from Columbia, South Carolina that fell in love with Beaufort many years ago!

Elizabeth Christmus purchased this house in 2005

Why Elizabeth Christmus chose Low Country & Resort Islands

We chose this vacation home because we loved the Island and we loved the marsh views. We had visited nearby Hunting Island quite often, but had never really spent much time on Fripp until after 2001.

We really fell in love with Fripp right away! We loved how laid back everything was. Fripp's beaches are very spacious. The island has a good bit of activity, but never seems to be overcrowded. The people on the island and in our community are all very nice. We loved how you could drive the golf cart right to the beach and have a parking space! This was just a place we wanted to be!

Sawgrass Bluff where our home is located really impressed us because it has such a natural beach feel. Palm trees surround the house, the marshes back up to the house, you can see crabs, fish, birds, etc all in their natural habitat.

We have loved our home and are so glad that we were lucky enough to be able to find a place that suited us so well!

What makes this house unique

Convenient Location - located within walking distance to the community pool and crabbing dock. Short golf cart ride to the beach. Easy ride to all locations on the island.

Beautiful Setting - Our home is tucked in a Nautical Forest providing a unique and beautiful setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Thank you so much for the pleasure of staying at your lovely home on this beautiful island. We had a wonderful four days, and were pleasantly surprised when our new Marine wanted to stay an extra night in S.C. before going home after graduation. We were so excited for him to be able to see Fripp and relax a little. He loved it! We will definitely let everyone know about your home, and encourage other recruit/Marine families to stay here. The little extra drive is WELL worth it. The beauty of Fripp Island was the perfect way to celebrate our son’s graduation from boot camp. We’ll be back!”

Island paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our week here and will be back! We have 4 little kids including a 6 month old baby so I really needed the convienence of having access to the house, pool and beach to accommodate nap times and fun times for the older kids! This house did it all for us! I could feed my early risers in the breakfast room without waking up everyone and the living room was a great hang out for the whole gang at the days end. The golf cart was my 2 year olds favorite part ! We were able to enjoy the island and all it offered and comeback to the house for r and r. I recommend this home!

Island was great. House had some issues.

  • 4 of 5

Fripp Island is a great place! We have stayed there before. Wonderful place for children and teenagers. Several pools, the beach, activities all week, most people using golf carts for transportion, and wildlife to enjoy.

The house was very spacious and comfortable. Pictures don't do the house justice-very roomy. We had seven people; 2 adults and 5 15-17 year olds and were very comfortable. It came with a golf cart which was great because you need one there. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and dishes. And there was a charcoal grill.

There were some issues with the house but not anything major enough to upset our stay. Mostly due to general maintenance and cleaning. The wood flooring at the top of the stairs was loose and a hazard for tripping, several of the light bulbs needed to be replaced, water spots on the ceiling upstairs, the solar lights leading to the house were broken, the top portion of the hand rails on the decks (round ends) were broken, etc. The main issue I had was with the cleaning. Although when we walked in it appeared clean, there were issues that soon began to appear. The closets were junky with random stuff that made it hard to put your stuff in. For example the hall closet was about half filled and the downstairs bedroom had most or the bottom closet space taken up with extra flooring. But the the actual cleaning needed to be addressed. There were spiderwebs hanging, the floors looked they had been swiftered but not really cleaned in a while (corners in the kitchen had built up dirt), handprints on windows, the couch had debris under it, and the show stopper - one of the kids found an used diaper under the bed.

We had an issue with the hot water heating breaking and having to be replaced. The owners responded quickly and apologetically. This went smooth and didn't disrupt out stay. They handled this very appropriately.

Final take: I think maybe the owners may need to check up on their maintenance and cleaning people but overall the vacation was a good experience.

Owner's Response: Hi Dorinda, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! I am sorry about the other things you mentioned. We did just get finished putting hardwoods down, so we did have to leave a few boxes in the downstairs closet. We use the same cleaning company that cleans most homes on Fripp Island. If we know that there is an issue during your stay, we are always willing to help. Spiderwebs appear overnight sometimes on Fripp Island during the summer months, but we would have been more than happy to send our cleaning staff back out to take care of that and anything you need. We always want our guests to let us know if we can do anything to improve their stay. If we don't know about a problem during your stay, there is nothing we can do. We always keep extra light bulbs, batteries, and things like that at the house as well. Thank you again Dorinda for staying with us and I am glad you enjoyed your time on Fripp!

We loved the house and the location! Super quiet marsh experience. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and decorated very well. All of the comforts of home and then some! Golf cart was an added bonus and location was perfect. Community pool was close and not crowded at all. 5 stars from the Butler's. Can't wait to stay here again!!

Wonderful end of summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 rented this home the week of 8/13 and had a wonderful visit. We loved the location on the island as it was central to most anything we wanted to do. The beaches were wonderful and it was nice having the community pool within walking distance. My family absolutely loved the house, golf cart, etc. Besides a few mosquitos, the bugs on Fripp were not an issue at all. We will be back next year! Thanks for a great stay!

Issues with Cockroaches

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed in a number of houses on Fripp in this price range and found this was our least favorite experience. This was towards the end of the season and the house had been well used.

What Worked:

- Our kids loved the private pool in the neighborhood

- House felt spacious enough for our family

- Golf cart included

- TV included Roku which was a nice feature

What Didn't Work:

- We battled with cockroaches the whole week in the house. We had a variety of sizes (big to very small) and couldn't isolate where they were coming in or from despite spraying ourselves.

- House was clean in high-traffic areas, but dirty elsewhere (we found a number of items left behind from previous renters and dust)

The owners were very nice to work with which we appreciated.

Owner's Response: Colleen, Our guests comfort is of the utmost importance to us. I am so sorry that you had issues with insects. We have our home on a quarterly pest control plan. In times of extreme heat in the maritime forest of Fripp Island, even with regular spraying, a few insects will get in. There is no amount of spraying that will prevent this from happening when the temperature is near or over 100 for several days in a row. I attempted to get our pest control company to come and respray, but they were backed up because they told us 90% of their customers on Fripp were having trouble in the extreme heat. We offered to come and spray the house ourselves but did not hear back about that. As for cleaning, we would have been more than happy to have our housekeeper come back out at any time. She is on Fripp every day and it would have been no problem at all. My family was also in Beaufort and would have been glad to come by and take care of anything you needed. We care about our guests and will do anything we can to help make them happy and comfortable if we know there is a problem. Thank you for renting our home and I wish you and your family the very best. Nathan
