Perfect vacation house!!

  • 5 of 5

We Loved everything about this House! Our stay was during the Christmas Holidays. With 4 adults and 5 teenagers, this was the perfect house for two families. The pictures truly do not do the house justice. It is so spacious and roomy. The house was VERY CLEAN and well maintained. The separate living room and family room was ideal for kids that want to watch TV and adults that want to relax in the overstuffed, comfy chairs and read a book or look out at the ocean across the street. The kitchen was very large and stocked with everything a cook could possibly need. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also very roomy and clean. The owner Joe is very easy to work with and accommodating to my questions. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property to anyone!!

Would Not Reccomend

  • 1 of 5

We have rented through VRBO all across the US and this is the first time we've had a bad experience. The house was not ready for renting this season. It was very dirty, filthy carpets, layers of dust everywhere, bed sheets were clean but comforters were too dirty to sleep under. The garage held broken beach chairs, fishing reels on the floor and other "stuff" to the point that you could not park a car in it and one of the garage doors was broken the whole week. The grass in the yard was knee high the first four days we were there and when the yard man came to cut it on Wednesday, his mower sprayed pine cones and other debris on cars in the driveway, scratching one of them. However, i did not complain which was a mistake. The yard had orange flags all over it from work that had obviously been done on water lines. A car backed off the driveway one tire width onto an area where there was no flag. Unfortunately, it broke a water line that had to be repaired. When I asked why the line was so near the top of the dirt, I was told that it hadn't rained and the dirt was soft there due to repair work that had been done the previous Thursday BUT no one had bothered to put a flag there. After it was repaired, two reflectors were stuck in the ground at that spot by the owner. The owner decided that was something we should pay for so he withheld part of our deposit. And, of course, he has not offered to pay for the damage to the scratched one week old vehicle. The only good things about the house are that it is large and is in a great location. It is greatly in need of updating but that wouldn't have mattered if it had been clean. This was the third house we had rented at Fripp Island and we will definitely go back but never to this house or this owner. I don't recommend it for anyone.

Owner's Response: The property rented is a beach house. We have a cleaning service that cleans the house before a new guest arrives. We do a deep clean every year not every week. The carpets are cleaned annually and were this spring. In 3 encounters with the tenant I asked if there were any problems and was told no everything is fine. Obviously I would not have asked the question unless I wanted an honest response. We take pride in our property and want it to be clean and comfortable for our guests. Since I do not live in the property it is possible there can be a problem that will not be found on a walk through. As to the garage being chuck full of fishing net and other items to the extent there was not room for a car. There were 5 bikes and a golf cart as well as fishing rode and a 1/2 dozen beach chairs. Since this is a beach house that seems appropriate to us. While I acknowledge the garage door was not functioning the tenant failed to say anything about the problem until days after they left. It was repaired within 24 hours of notification. The grass was never up to the knees. The lawn service cuts the grass when it is needed and the weather permits. It has never been higher then ankle deep. Also the lawn service in response to the tenant's comments about throwing pine cones said that never happened. He stated that when guests are in the area he shuts down the equipment until they leave the area as should be the case The crux of the matter revolved around a $90 back charge for the repair of a water line that was damaged as a result of someone in their party leaving the driveway and running over service box. In 25 years of ownership this had never happened in the past. Further, I was not notified not by the tenant but by 2 neighbors. The water bill which I did not back charge to them is likely to be almost as much as the repair. I am sorry they feel they should not have been charged but if you damage someone else's property you should be responsible for the cost of that damage.

Marine Graduation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the house for our son's graduation from Parris Island. The house was perfect for us - on golf course across from ocean!!! Great kitchen - plenty of room. Trip to Parris Island not bad about 35 - 40 min. Owner as nice as can be!!! Golf carts and bikes great for this area!!! Highly recommend this property!!!

Lovely home, would recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this house, with husband and two teen daughters. We were nervous trying a new island, and also a new rental. Agree with many reviewers that photos don't do house justice. It is spacious, clean, and comfortable. Just a short and easy walk from the best beach access, and overlooking the fairways as well. (Even the non-golfer appreciated the fairways for bocce.)The kitchen was very well equipped; I am a foodie, love cooking, and found this kitchen modern, comfy, and very well supplied as beach rentals go. This house could comfortably handle the 10 suggested, and any kids will love the bunk room. Joe was friendly and easy to work with, so two thumbs up from this family, last-minute first-time Fripp vacationers.

Such a great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

My family has visited Fripp for 10 years. As our family grows; children, grandchildren our needs for space change. This house is lovely and so comfortable. I agree with another reviewer that the pictures do not give the home justice. The spacious family room and added game room for older kids to play games, watch movies, etc. is just right for everyone to have some space. Views from the front of the home of the beach are enjoyable, while the back deck offers a great view of the golf course. This home is conveneint to everything on the island and the owner, Joe, is easy to work with and available. My family will be back!

Perfect Home for our Fripp Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home for our annual Fripp vacation! We have stayed at several other Fripp homes over the years, and this one was BY FAR the best house for the amount of money spent. The owner was great to work with; we rented this property only five days before we were scheduled to arrive. The pictures on VRBO do not nearly convey the spaciousness and comfort of the home. We loved having a living area separate from the TV area. The living room is comfortable, LARGE, and has a lovely view of the ocean. It is perfect for reading, playing games, etc. The kitchen and dining areas are also very large. The bedrooms/bathrooms were comfortable and clean. It was great to be within walking distance of the beach since my husband does not prefer to stay on the beach as long as the kids and I do! The beach access (#2 and #3) were ideal; there were several large tidal pools for the children to play in. Of course, we spent a lot of time cruising the island on the fun golf cart. We were sad for the week to end and hope to vacation again at this wonderful retreat!
