                                                              The house was just wonderful. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and very large, each had its' own bath which was great. The kitchen was well furnished and has plenty of plates and utensils. The common areas gave us plenty of room and the view was simply awe inspiring. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a vacation get away. The owners were easily assessable and helpful as well.

                                                              This house was perfect for my family. We were very pleased with our stay


                                                              We rented this property for Christmas.This house is family oriented.We most definitely will be renting this property again in the near future. The property was equipped with all the necessities. There was more than enough space.This house sits in a perfect location of the beach. The best house ever..Thank you Marla!!!!

                                                              Spectacular! Perfect for large family reunions. The owners were wonderfully accommodating.

                                                              Our family of 15 came for my daughters Marine graduation.The home was perfect with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms ,especially with everyone needing to be ready by 6am. We had

                                                              plenty of beautiful living space to gather together in and enjoy each others company .The house is gorgeous , it had everything we needed and more. The view of the ocean is spectacular, we watched dolphins feeding right in front of us in the morning with our coffee on the deck. The deer surrounding the property were awesome, they come right up to you . We enjoyed BBQ ing in the yard, playing on the beach , and Hunting Island lighthouse was super cool to go to.

                                                              We highly recommend this

                                                              Pleasant Unhurried Laidback Frippin House

                                                              Mary D.Aiken SC

                                                              As a large family, we each had our own bedroom with bath. The well stocked kitchen met all our appliance/pot/pan/dish/glass/cup needs - even for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner! Steps to a wide open beach. Deer galore. Bird watching paradise! Would definitely rent again.

                                                              Beautiful location

                                                              Catherine S.Columbia, SC

                                                              Great house, needs some minor repairs, cleaning and upkeep to justify the price of the rental. We had a fabulous time with our family.

                                                              Huge house with great ocean front location!


                                                              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!
