Return to Paradise !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a heavenly week at this fabulous home on Fripp Island. It is our fourth visit to Casa Del Mar with a group of friends, 4 couples, ages 60 and over. The home never disappoints. After our first visit in 2013, the group all voiced, “why mess with perfection ? ” so we have returned and rented this same home again and again since. You just can’t beat this home and the luxurious stay it offers to any guest. The owners never disappoint and have only continued to improve the amenities. This year we arrived to all new mattresses in the home, a new wide screen TV ( yes, we were there for March Madness and did watch a bit of TV), a new gas fireplace in a master suite and upgraded decking on all the porches and decks.

We love the luxury and openness of the home, the ability to gather as a group, but seek solitude in all the quiet areas of the home, including the decks and porches. The oceanfront view is heavenly from all angles and the location on the island ideal. The owners are extremely attentive to every detail and housekeeping is top notch. We can only hope to be able to return for another visit in the future. I would highly recommend this home to anyone for ANY occasion and join the chorus of reviews from repeat renters that praise this home as Fripp’s BEST !

Beautiful Home, Fantastic Location, Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in this home twice. The layout, amenities, and location are all as described. The owner and management company are top notch. We've never had any issues, but they have always been very proactive in reaching out to let us know how to contact them any problems. I only wish we could spend the other 51 weeks of the year there! I would definitely recommend it.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

This is your home away from home...5 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms with bathtubs! Plus 2 half baths, 2 seperate living spaces, 2 refrigerators, steps from the ocean. The kitchen is perfect, Viking range and fridge...has everything you could possibly think of or need. 2 large porches and huge deck. To put the icing on the cake this house is at the quiet, less populated end of the beach. It's the perfect place for a wonderful vacation. Kayaking, paddle boarding, biking, golfing or just relaxing. This is your heaven on earth.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Fripp for 16 years. This was the best property by far. The house is spacious with a very good elevator which is perfect for the handicapped. The rooms are decorated very well. The beach front was beautiful. We had a virtual private beach.

Fripp Island 's Best

  • 5 of 5

Have vacationed at Fripp Island for a week each summer for forty years and Casa del Mar is the best house we have rented! Three master bedrooms in this five bedroom house plus the wonderful views and fabulous kitchen gave us plenty of reason to make our reservation for next summer. The porches and easy stroll to the sand and waves made our week there perfect! And cannot forget the elevator which made carrying all of our "stuff" inside easy as when we were young and could run up and down steps! Treat your family by reserving " Fripp's Best".

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

Casa del Mar is a wonderful home from which to enjoy all that Fripp Island has to offer. The mid-island oceanfront location with direct beach access is very convenient and makes it easy to spend lots of time on the beach or enjoying the surf and sand from the decks and porch.

The house may be the best equipped of the many homes we have rented at Fripp. The kitchen has all the necessities to cook and entertain for a large group. The Viking appliances are outstanding. The furnishings throughout the entire house are well above average with plenty of chairs, couches and televisions. Casa strikes the proper balance between luxury and functionality. While the house is way above average, you do not feel afraid to use the house and enjoy it.

They have done an outstanding job of making the house turn-key for any renter. From the hair dryers in each bathroom to the extra ice maker in the laundry room, they have tried to provide the extras you would want at the beach. The bathrooms for each of the bedrooms are huge, well-appointed, and the showers are perfect.

We have been to Fripp many times over the last 29 years and Casa del Mar is the best house we have rented in all that time. If it is available the next time we are there, we will rent it again.
