Huge house with great ocean front location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious with a great layout for optimum beach stay enjoyment! The kitchen was fully stocked, the beds were ample and quite comfortable, and the screened in porch was awesome! The location with the new boardwalk, tons of beach toys and chairs, bikes, ping pong table, and outdoor shower were all so very nice! Marla was such a kind and helpful house host and provided all we needed for an easy, clean, and wonderful October beach visit. Thanks so much!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home with plenty of space for a large group. Kitchen was well stocked. Love that there is an ice machine and separate beverage fridge. Beds were very comfy. House is beachfront but it's quite a hike to the water. Plenty of bikes and beach stuff at the house. AC worked great which was good since it was unseasonably hot in October.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family of ten adults and four children gathered on Fripp Island to celebrate my upcoming 70th birthday. This large home (6 bedrooms/6 baths) and fully equipped kitchen met all of our expectations for easy meal preparation, space to gather around a large table for meals and plenty of room to spread out for all activities. But best of all, this home faces the ocean with a short walk to the beach where we spent a great deal of our time playing in the ocean and watching the surf. It seemed as though we had our own private beach. The owners answered all of my inquiries and were very helpful. Would recommend this home for a memorable vacation.

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.
