Broken down!

  • 2 of 5

The location was great and the king size mattress slept good. However, the dishwasher and the garbage disposal didn't work from day one. There were two golf carts but only one key. Neither golf cart would stay charged for more than an hour, if that, so we had to use our cars to explore the island. There was no broom in the house for us to sweep. The outlets didn't work so we couldn't use our curling irons or straighteners to get ready. The washing machine worked great but the dryer would have to go through three cycles to get the clothes dry. The kitchen is well stocked. It could be a really great place to rent but it really needs some TLC!! There's a great balcony off the master bedroom but no furniture on it so you can enjoy it. There were towel bars off the walls in the down stairs bathroom. A cabinet door missing off the kitchen cabinets. I also killed 5 roaches in the living room and kitchen while we were there. It was not very relaxing having to constantly hand wash dishes all while the sink was backed up because of the clogged garbage disposal. We love Fripp and will return next year just won't return to this home. I'm not trying to offend Berta but this house shouldn't be rented again until all these problems are fixed!! We were 40 mins late checking out due to all the broken down things that we had to improvise on to get ready to leave.

Owner's Response: This guest did call to report the dishwasher not running. I called the repair company, but with Fripp Island being as remote as it is, I was unable to get the repair company to the house before their departure. They did not report a problem with the garbage disposal until the end of the week and as soon as they called to report this, the plumber was there within 2 hours to fix it. It was overloaded and clogged with food waste. The guests did not report a problem with the golf cart until the morning of their departure. They were almost an hour late checking out which delayed the housekeeping staff, so I called them to see when they thought they might be leaving. They claimed they were late because the golf cart broke down. They had not reported any issues or problems with the golf cart prior to my call to them. The second of the two golf carts on site is an emergency back up cart and is stored in a private utility area that the guests do NOT have permission to access. This cart was NOT there for their use, nor was a second cart promised or offered with the rental. They did NOT HAVE PERMISSION to drive it that is why there was no key or charger provided for it. There is a vacuum cleaner kept in the laundry room for the guests to use, it can do pretty much any job that a broom will do. The only reports of damage/issues these guests made during their stay were the dishwasher (and I’m very sorry we were not able to repair it during their stay) and the garbage disposal (which was fixed within a matter of hours) and the golf cart (the morning of their departure). They did not report any other problems, if they had, these would have been addressed during their stay. I’m sorry these guests were not happy with the rental, we fixed both the dishwasher and garbage disposal as quickly as we were able to. We were not notified of any other issues or we would have taken care of them as well. I feel it is important to note-the guests the week prior to and just after this guest’s stay did not have any issues with the other items mentioned.

50 Steps to the beach

  • 3 of 5

Great location, great communication with the owner during the vetting process. I would encourage future renters to keep in mind that this is a beach house. Meaning the house is pretty dated and not well insulated which means it is really hard to keep cool during the Summer months. We had a couple breakers flip that prevented us from charging the golf cart for the 1st couple of days but we were able to work it out and identify the problem on our own. The rules for this house were mostly inline with others but were a bit overboard in some areas. All in all it was not bad, for the rate in which we paid.

Our Third Visit to Fripp and this house

  • 4 of 5

Very centrally located and you really can walk to the courts, one of the 5 pools, ice cream place, and walk to the beach. You are on the Main drag but the price is right and where can you fit your family with a downstairs bunk room and hang out for the grandkids. Island wifi isn't great but Fripp is like growing up in the 50's where everyone feels safe and kids enjoy themselves. Our third year here and 7th year in area.

Great Location, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bikini bottom with another family at the beginning of the summer and had a great time.

The house is in my favorite location on Fripp. It is only a few steps to the beach and is central so everything is only a short journey. The included golf cart makes it even easier!

The downstairs was great for the kids, and the house had everything we needed.

Berta is great to work with, and was really helpful getting us something we had left at the house. We are renting from Berta again this year!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bikini Bottom last summer, and we will be staying their this summer. We liked a lot of things about this home; it's spacious, it has a large deck, it has a large area downstairs for the kids, and it comes with a golf cart. The best thing about this home, though, is it's location. It's a few steps to the beach, and it is centrally located so that everything is a short golf cart or bicycle ride away. This is not one of the luxurious homes on the Island, so don't come looking for that, but for the price and location, it can't be beat.

About The Owner

We visited Fripp Island for the first time in 2000. We came back a month later and bought our first home here. That is a 3 bedroom home on the Ocean Creek Golf Course, VRBO listing #18539.

Simply said, we fell instantly, head-over-heels in love with Fripp. In the beginning we lived on the East Coast and were able to spend a great deal of time here. Eventually we moved to the mid-west and that first home became a rental. I enjoy the rental business so much--especially introducing First Time Fripp Island Guests to Fripp that we have over the years purchased 3 additional homes. 15 years later I still love what I do and I still have several guests from those early years that return to stay in my homes year after year.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Fripp Island

We own 4 homes on Fripp Island, including 2 large ocean front homes, but Bikini Bottom is the one we choose stay in when we visit Fripp. It is spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for us, our grown children and their friends (and hopefully, someday, a handful of grandchildren). It is just steps away from the beach access and is close to the Beach Club, the Adult Pool, Food Court and The Sandbar.

As spacious as it is, we do plan to add a second master suite in the fall of 2017. This will bring the total number of bedrooms to 5 and the number of full baths to 4. At that time we will also expand the kitchen and possibly add a screened porch.

Eventually, our remaining homes will be sold but Bikini Bottom is where we will someday retire and spend our leisure years.

What makes this house unique

Super Comfy, Super Spacious and Super Close to the Beach

Guestbook comments from the manager

The home itself is located just steps from the center island area of the beach. LITERALLY JUST STEPS FROM THE BEST BEACH AROUND.

Fripp Island is a fantastic place for vacations including all age ranges. From 8 months to 80 years—your entire family will enjoy this special place.

Frpp Island is both a nature preserve and resort in one. Enjoy a morning walk on the beach and watch the Fripp Island Turtle Team scout for signs of new nests. The deer and birds are everywhere. And we do have our fair share of alligators.

The Fripp Island Club offers resort amenities at their finest. There are two championship golf courses, a tennis club, several pools and restaurants to choose from. There is a fee for access to the Fripp Island Club and as owners we are proud to be Club Members with the ability to offer you this opportunity.

Our beach home is located just outside beautiful Beaufort, SC. The Beaufort area boasts many art, dining and historical offerings.

Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC are each just a bit further away and make excellent day trip excursions from Fripp Island. These cities also have the closest commercial airports.

We are super convenient to the Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot. We are proud to offer a discount to the families attending their loved-one's Marine Corp Graduation.
