Great location to beach access!

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved Fripp Island! The house was very close to the beach access. The sunroom was really nice and open to see the ocean view.

Wonderful week at Fripp

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. It had everything we needed and was in a perfect location. We could easily walk to the beach every day and didn't need to transport our belongings via golf cart; like many others. The handicap beach access is great because it makes for a much easier access to the beach. We could make our way back for lunch (or Bloody Mary's) and head back out in the afternoon. FANTASTIC. This home had great space and the two porches allowed us to look out at the ocean while our teenage kids could hang out on the other. Great home and even better location on the island. We will be back!!

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I actually read an entire book! This house is so cozy and perfectly located in the center of the island. It is next to the only handicap beach access. (Which means it is always in good condition!) This house had everything we needed.

Great home for a beach vacation with family

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was as close to perfect as it could be. This house has everything you could want for a family vacation with kids. Close to beach access, large and airy living room, sunroom and deck, open concept kitchen, updated kitchen appliances, separate washer and dryer - list could go on. Having all rooms at the same level was a big plus because we have three young children. Owners were very helpful in coordinating delivery and Mail of packages and arranging crib rentals. Strongly recommended for families with young chilldren.

Great location! Classic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our first trip to Fripp and loved it. We chose between 2 houses and were so glad that we went with this one. The location is IDEAL. It's close to the Beach Club (island center) and right across from the beach. The beach access is 1 house over and a very easy 3 min walk. You can walk in 5-7 minutes or cart to the Beach Club (pool, food court, tennis courts, restaurant, cute shop).

Quick description: Fripp is a small (3 miles) island that is enjoyed by golf cart. There are amenities like pools, activity center for kids, 2 golf courses, live music at night, a marina and 2 (sit down) restaurants but it does NOT feel "fancy".

The home is your classic "shotgun" beach house with 1 main living area and 4 bedrooms off of that main room/kitchen. The bedrooms have jack-n-jill bathrooms. The kitchen has been upgraded and there are 2 sitting areas in the living area so the kids can watch tv while the grown ups talk. Since our kids are older and sleep late, this floorplan was fine for us. If you have toddlers screaming and running at 6am, this floorplan might not be great for anyone wanting to sleep in. Again, for us, it was GREAT.

Downstairs was a carport, laundry room, outside hot/cold shower and a storage room full of beach accessories. (No umbrella so bring yours if you like shade)

The house was charming, clean and had everything we needed. (2 adults and 4 kids)

We loved this trip and this home! We kept patting ourselves on the back for getting such a great house simply by researching VRBO. If you want beach access, location on the island and a traditional beach house, look no further.

Thanks to the owners for being easy to work with. We will be back next year!
