About Cathy Pinto

Our family fell in love with Fripp when we started coming with our kids in the 90's. About 7 years ago we were fortunate enough to purchase our home. We try to enjoy it as often as we can get away from the Atlanta craziness and get down to the slow pace on Fripp.

Cathy Pinto purchased this cottage in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much we enjoy your home on Fripp. We love being with our family and relaxing on the deck. The improvements you have made are really nice? We hope to return soon.

Great island, Great Location, Okay House

  • 4 of 5

First time to Fripp, we loved the location of the house, using the golf cart, the space, the back deck and view was amazing. The house could use some work, wasn't the cleanest; cobwebs, cockroaches, dirty dishes in cabinets, silverware drawer smells like barf, the yard was overgrown and trash in the yard. The thing that most upset me was the day before checking in I received an email from the owner about check in and rules and I emailed her right back with a few questions which were never answered. When we arrived to the gate only one pass was issued for our two families so I called the owner and she did not answer, or call me back, even after a message was left. Luckily the gate people were great and got us another pass. Otherwise we had a great time and we will be back to the island next year! Bring bug spray!!!!

The homeowner and home was exceptional but VRBO WAS ZERO

  • 1 of 5

The property owner and property were very good but communication via VRBO was LOUSY. Once I could talk to the owner all was very well. I don't particularly like Pay Pal, the new fee structure and various charges, and not having easy communication with the owner. I am happy to have left VRBO for my home last spring. Everything that concerned me at the time turned out to be valid. I'm gone and glad

Owner's Response: Yes, as I homeowner I'm very frustrated with VRBO! I've been trying to let my guests book directly through me using checks or PayPal. It saves the fees charged to renters. I already pay fees as a homeowner! Unfortunately, it can cause a communication gap and delay in replying whether or not my property is available on specific dates. Vacation rental is not a money making just allows guests to have options other than hotels or big, corporate owned property. We love our Fripp home and do our best to keep it comfortable and affordable for our guests, without breaking our bank account! Please text me at770 364-3311 to book directly.

Nice house well located but needing update and cleaning

  • 2 of 5

The house is nice and has a great deck but we were a bit disappointed because of an unpleasant musty smell and dirty cutlery and dishes in the kitchen's closet...what's a pity...

Don't forget your mosquito's repellent !

Owner's Response: I had a talk with my cleaning people about checking cutlery. Sometimes things get put back without being properly washed and dried and my cleaning people can't check everything. This stay was right after the hurricane which might account for the mustiness and mosquitoes.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

First time to Fripp Island for our family, we loved it! Hope to make it a regular trip. Loved having a golf cart included in rental, a cart is a must on Fripp. We enjoyed riding around as much as anything. House was great, nice gated back deck looking over a lake (saw a couple gators). Really enjoyed seeing all the deer too! Only downside, and I hate to complain, is that as a Non indoor pet owner, we found a lot of hair (on and around comforters and furniture). Being we have 3 little ones this wasn't great as they find everything.. I feel bad even saying it bc we did love the home and hope to rent again, but it wasn't super clean. But thanks for a great place to visit!
