I am a pediatric travel nurse. This is my primary home and I rent it out while I am working in different states. I love coming home to Fripp, there's just no place like it! I take a lot of pride in making my home/your vacation home a comfortable, relaxing place that you will enjoy and want to return year after year! You can also find me at FB Debbie Ray Braham-Shugart for more info!
Owner purchased this House in 2004
Why Owner chose Deer Lake
One visit will let you know why people come back year after year...southern moss in the trees, deer that become part of your family, and a beach that offers something new every day.
What makes this House unique
I love that I have so many families that return every year and have built so many memories. I know that they must love my home as much as I do because after 10 years of renting it out, I can never tell that anyone has been there!

BE VERY CAUTIOUS!!!!!!
We've been vacationing on Fripp Island many, many times and have never stayed in a house or condo that was so dirty. On the first evening my husband and I literally cleaned. The property owner advertises cable tv, well believe me, it's just enough to barely support the claim. The refrigerator was nasty and didn't keep anything cold, the walls and cabinets in the kitchen had food/drink residue running down to the baseboards. There was dust and cobwebs in the living room and we had to wipe the walls of the living room and corners of the master bedroom down with the dust mop. The flloors were clearly left untouched. The hall bathroom shower had a handful of hair stuck to the walls of the shower. The golf cart had been so neglected that the battery won't hold a charge long enough to get you from one end of the Island to the other. It took my husband 3-4 days to get the battery fluid levels where it would hold an acceptable charge to use it for about 35-40 minutes at a time. And last but certainly not least, the description and pictures on the internet of the exterior and interior of the property look so inviting but be extremely careful of renting from this listing, because the dirt and unkempt house may not be the only issue you will have to deal with when you leave. We will return to Fripp, but never to this rental.
Sorry you feel you had such a bad experience. You never called me to complain about any of this, but decide to write a bad review! People who rent from me know I am always accessible and call back usually immediately! Why would you not call me and have me call the housekeeper back to clean to your specifications! You actually damaged the batteries by overfilling them. The problem was the charger was not working properly. But since you decided to not let me know, I had to find out from the next renters. When they called me I had our cart guy go out within the hour and figure out the problem and fix it. Some people would rather be miserable I guess instead of solving the problem and then complain after the fact!
This was our first visit to Fripp and we couldn't have found a more perfect place.
The home's location, amenities and comfort will definitely have us coming back for another stay. Debbie was fantastic with her quick responses and recommendations.
Overall a wonderful experience. Thank you for everything!
Awesome family vacation!
Great views, wonderful amenities. Children enjoyed the bikes & golf cart rides!!
Dated and worn out. I guess you get what you pay for.
Overall the house simply was not clean. Even though it is a pet friendly house, I feel the cleaning lady does not do a good job. The glass around the front door and both sliding glass doors still had obvious dog licks/smudges on them. Lots of pet hair in all the bedrooms. The carpets were badly stained and need replaced. Both chairs in the living area are badly stained and need replaced. Both showers need to be replaced. They work appropriately but both are very old and just look bad. The hall bath shower is tiny. Any sized adult would have difficulty showering in it. It worked ok for my 15 and 12 year old. The AC did keep the house comfortable and the large TV in the living area was nice when we crashed at night. I will not inquire about returning the this property. Overall I was disappointed with the property.
Well...this is the first bad review I think I have ever had. If you feel you get what you pay for then you need to spend a lot more if you are wanting something that is to "your" standards. Families have always loved my home and many have been returning for years. I am surprised at the comments about the cleaning. My housekeeper usually does a great job. However, during the summer it does get quite busy and it is possible that something might have unfortunately been overlooked, but I feel pretty sure the house was clean and well furnished for "most" people's needs. If there was a problem you should have let me known and I could have had her come back to correct it. However, I would not send her back for a smudged small glass pane at the front door. I agree that evidently my house is not a good fit for you and agree you would be more comfortable in another "rental".
Awesome rental and really enjoyed Fripp Island.
Clean and well furbished. Would definitely stay again.
Peaceful and a nature lover's dream!
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and well equipped. Unlike many rentals, the furniture was the quality I'd buy for my own home, rather than the rickety wicker stuff you often see in beach houses. Loved sitting on the back porch watching two Little Green Herons tending their nest (birds galore) , along with the deer visitors. Having the golf cart was a godsend, and the closeby neighborhood pool was great. Only small downside was the guest bathroom compared to the large and lovely master bath. There's a house being constructed next door, which was unfortunate, but it really didn't hinder our stay and we were out & about most of their workday. Overall, a wonderful getaway!!
Beach, Crabbing, wonderful town of Beaufort to explore, off island golf courses 20 minutes away, state park with nature activities and fishing pier.
