Had a lovely stay with family. Home is very nice although in need of some TLC.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week with family in this home which had many positives and a few negatives.

Positives: ice machine that kept up with 21 people, large washer and dryer, screened in back porch, lots of chairs, beach toys, boogie boards and bikes available, kitchen needs were sufficient, roomy living space for several, bathroom for every bedroom, and ocean view.

Needs: refrigerator smelled like fish from day one, wi-fi was weak, several small repair issues (door knobs, toilet paper holder, drawer front missing in a bathroom), rug corners taped down in one bedroom. None of these were huge issues; they just prevented us from being able to give this property five stars.

Fabulous Family Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with three generations of family in this incredibly spacious, well-appointed home on the ocean. The six bedrooms are all large and each has its own bath. The views from the deck and porch were amazing, terrific sunrise and full moon rising. We cooked many meals to enjoy at the large dining room table. It's a good idea to rent a golf cart to move around the island to the pools and restaurants. Both island golf courses were in spectacular condition. All in all, a terrific stay. Marla handled all our questions quickly in advance of our trip, making the rental process a breeze.

Stunning views from a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth time renting this house for a vacation with our extended family. The house is big enough where everybody has their own space and the common areas are spacious enough for big family gatherings. The owners are incredible to work with. They are always so accommodating and kind in any dealings we have had with them. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking for the whole family. It is a comfortable house with lots of beach chairs, bikes, beach toys and the kids loved playing ping pong downstairs. It is on beautiful marlin drive with a convenient new wooden beach access just steps away and accessible out the back door. Already looking forward to next year.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to start....everything was top notch! So if your swaying from one property to another, stop now as this is your home, or one of their 4 properties.

I will begin with my experience with Marla, she was the icing on the cake! Marla was absolutely amazing to work with and that you do not find now a that was my biggest reason to go with this VBRO. We rented a beautiful home for our sons Marine boot camp graduation wanting have the perfect location for all the family and friends to be able to celebrate this time special time together with our new Marine. Date of graduation changed and so did our reservation! Marla accommodated with out hesitation and even more! Making the experience effortless. The home was perfect for all of us to be under one roof and have our own space. Breathtaking views of the ocean which we walked to everyday. House was equipped nicely. Space was amazing. Larger then the pictures show. While we had a blend of family and friends we were all living the dream in our own space yet still together! It was absolutely perfect and comfortable. We had amazing sunset dinners in the open floor plan of the kitchen living room dining room area. Fripp Island is a wonderful Island which we certainly hope to visit again and stay in one of Marla's lovely properties....hoping for a summer visit! We highly recommend the comforts of this family and home as they treated you like gold! The drive to and from Parris Island was comfortable with no traffic as we did it 3 days in a row. I would say it is about 40 easy minutes. Everyone in our party complement this house as being just awesome and had a very enjoyable stay! We can't thank Marla and her wonderful family enough for all that you have done to give us a great experience and awesome place to crate everlasting memories.. Thank you so very much!!!! We will be back!
