About James U. Wright

This is our South Carolina home. We live in the midwest and come to Fripp Island every chance we get.

Why James U. Wright chose Fripp Island

We choose this house because of its close proximity to the Cabana Club. Our children and grandchildren can walk to their and still come home easily when tired or hungry. Also we are just minutes from the beach and the marina. HOWEVER NOTHING IS VERY FAR AWAY ON FRIPP ISLAND. Also the close proximity to the Activity / Nature center was a huge bonus for us when the children were younger.

What makes this house unique

Close to all of the resorts amenities and still very quite and private.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home made our vacation a success. It had all of the necessary components for a family to wind down and spend quality time together. The home is located in an excellent location on the island and we enjoyed being so close to all the activities that are offered on Fripp Island. The owner was great and assisted us with all of our questions and needs in regards to our stay. I highly recommend the Express Rest as a location to take your family to make great memories and to enjoy the beauty of Fripp Island. Thanks

Gorgeous Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves coming to this property. We have booked this home on several occasions and it never fails to impress us. The owners are obviously on top of the maintenance of the property and are continuously looking for ways to improve it. We noticed this year that there were brand new appliances in the kitchen and a new washer & dryer for laundry. Also new for 2017 was a 6 person golf cart that allowed us to get around the island as a group. We have yet to find anything about this property we don't like. It is close to the cabana club pool, playgrounds and activity center which worked well for our kids. Of course, nothing on Fripp Island is a great distance from anything else but those favorite destinations.

We can't wait to break free and return to our family's favorite vacation destination!

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the cabana club. The kitchen is small but well supplied with quality cookwear. Parking is a challenge, there is only one small parking area to park in overnight and it fills up quickly and parking on the grass and sidewalks is not allowed. We enjoyed our stay!

Not oceanview, No parking

  • 1 of 5

First the house is not Oceanview as advertiised. There is no parking, there is only room for one car and if you want to use golf carts you can't even park one car there. You have to park off site which is a big time hassle as parking spots are limited and most parking are under trees that drop limbs and tar on your car. This is not advertised but is addressed in your welcome letter, lol a little too late. There is a rat the size of an opossum living comfortably in the garage where he got into our beach items ughhhh disgusting. The front doors are falling apart and not very secure and the screen porch has a hole in screen, which they wanted to repair during our dinner???... The golf carts are good and fast yet I did have to repair one myself after it left us stranded away form the house. The homeowner did not bother addressing a huge wasp nest under one of the handrails that led to my wife being attacked and stung several times. If you do rent this home do a good inspection of carts and document with pictures for your protection. The location is good but I would urge this owner to repair items and do an inspection of property after each guest leaves for safety.

Love Fripp. Express Rest is great, up-to-date, clean, great layout. Just don't take more than 2 cars. The resort is no longer allowing overnight parking in public lots.

St. Louis, Mo.

Had a wonderful second stay at Express Rest. I loved my time sightseeing and birdwatching.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at 27 SeaMist in early May. My car was involved in an accident and I was forced to drive a rental car home. Jim Wright helped me make arrangements to come back and stay at his wonderful home. This helped make a very stressful time for me much more enjoyable. I was able to walk on Fripp's beaches and see the turtle nests, enjoy evening walks to the pier to see the sunsets, and early morning strolls through the Nature Center to see the birds while waiting for my car to be repaired. I will be returning again and again to this wonderful home.
