About Joan Barnes and David Patzke, Owners

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.

Joan Barnes and David Patzke, Owners purchased this house in 2002

Why Joan Barnes and David Patzke, Owners chose Fripp Island

Fripp is great fun for families of all ages. We fell in love with the place and had to own there.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great property for our family.

  • 4 of 5

Joan was great to work with and very responsive to our needs. The size of the house was great for 2 families and the kids. The dock is a great feature. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the need for some non stick pots and pans and also brooms and a vacuum to help keep things tidy during the week. Looking forward to renting this house again!

family summer trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this great house! The kitchen was well stocked, the dock was a treat to have as we love to Kayak at Fripp. The screen porch enabled us to spend much needed time out of the sun with a lovely view of the water. The bikes provided are in excellent working order, another key feature for us as we love to bike the island every day. The owners were very easy to work with and responded quickly to the 1 minor maintenance issue we had.

Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Fantastic location and home

  • 5 of 5

This house and location was fantastic. The owners were extremely easy to work with and did everything they could to make our stay relaxing.

The home has everything needed in terms of kitchen and recreational needs and you quickly feel like you are in your own home. There were a couple of times we needed answers or small things done by owner and within an hour or so they were taken care of.

We have stayed in a number of VRBO homes and this was the best rental yet.
