Why Stacy Lund chose Fripp Island

We chose 12 Sea Mist because of the beautiful sweeping views from every window. There is something magical about sitting on the balcony of this home. We have also enjoyed being so close to the many amenities Fripp Island has to offer.

AMAZING location

  • 3 of 5

This is our tenth year at Fripp and our first time staying at this property. This house was really great in terms of size and location. We are a family of five, and we, plus my in laws, were quite comfortable staying there. It is literally next door to the cabana club, which was one of our favorite parts. Plus, during low tide, we could wade across the marsh and access the beach. Our boys enjoyed the nature center and getting to hold the animals, which is a short walk away.

We knew going into this trip that the house has had some issues in terms of needing some repairs. We reached out to the owner before our stay and she reassured us that most of the repairs had been completed, which was helpful. When we arrived, we were so pleased to see the beach decor and the size of the house. It is really large! Plus, the views are amazing.

Upon further inspection, it became apparent that the cleaning crew had not done its job. The door was left unlocked, which was a little unsettling, the table was sticky, there was sand on the floor, hair in the shower, huge amounts of dust on the fans, and a terrible smell that developed in the refrigerator that got worse as the week went on-this was by far the worst part!! We finally located the smell, which was coming from a liquid underneath a broken drawer in the bottom of the fridge. The linens were clean, which is probably the only thing the cleaning crew actually did.

I talked to a resident of the island and she informed us that this has been a problem across the island with other rental properties.

On the flip side-great aspects of this property include the new washer and dryer, the efficient HVAC, the wet bar, and the size of the bedrooms and bathrooms.

Overall, we would stay at this property again, based on size, views and location. If the owners could find a new cleaning crew that did its job, this property could be one of the premier rentals on the island!!

Amazing views - property needs lots of cleaning, maintenance and updating

  • 1 of 5

Let first emphasize the location and view from this property - the views are amazing.

The property itself needs some substantial updating. As we walked in, the cleaning woman greeted us with a warning about the quality of the property and a list of things that were broken (very unprofessional way to welcome us).

Here's a list of the issues we observed in the property:

1) The property owners had contractors in the home 3 of the 6 nights we were there. Twice, we came home to either people in the home (master bedroom with all of our belongings out), or evidence of people being there (tools and trash left all around). We ended up feeling so unsafe and violated that we left early (Property owners refunded us 1 night's rent).

2) There were clumps of hair on all the bathroom floors and all over the kitchen (cleaning company issue)

3) There were no towel racks in any of the bathrooms - they had all fallen off and not been replaced

4) There is a missing wall in the bathroom under the jacuzzi tub. There are exposed wires everywhere and lots of debris on the floor (property owner refunded $300 for this)

5) The property is immediately adjacent to the cabana club, which has lots of lights at night. The property owner purchased blinds that did not cover the whole window (6"-10" too short). We had to find ways to cover the windows for privacy and the ability to sleep.

6) The sliding glass doors do not have handles on the outside - if someone shuts the door while you're outside, you'll be outside for a long time

7) The decks are in terrible condition - all the spindles are rotted out. On the master balcony, an entire side was swaying back and forth

8) The deck furniture is broken

9) The garage door to where the golf cart is located is mangled and 2 of the panels are permanently open - this makes it so you can't securely leave your bikes anywhere

10) The beds and bedding are extremely old. The sheets were stained and worn to the point that you could see through them.

11) A lot of the windows are so old that they've fogged over and it's difficult to see out of

The guest book in the home had some disappointed comments from families, like ours, who felt it was a shame that the owners let this property get so run down. Unfortunately, I cannot recommended this property (despite the amazing view and the willingness of the owners to refund us some of our $$).

Great location but not a great rental

  • 2 of 5

The views are wonderful, the location is perfect. The home was not clean. The property needs some loving care. Although we were notified that workmen would be there on Monday, they were also there 2 other days when we returned from the beach, without notification.The owners were made aware of the problems, and provided a partial refund, but this did not change the poor condition of this property.

It is a shame that this property is neglected, it could be a lovely home away from home.

We have rented through VRBO many times, and this is the first time we have been dissatisfied.

Great view.....that is all!

  • 1 of 5

We have been visiting Fripp Island for over twenty years and actually lived there for a little over a year at one time. With that said I am very familiar with the island and have rented multiple properties thru both VRBO and Fripp Island rentals over the years. In all the rentals we have ever stayed in I have always given great reviews until now. I must say I have never been as disgusted with a home as I was this one. From the minute we pulled up it was noticeable how the home has not been kept up. Mold and dirt covering the outside, a pile of trash under the back of the house and a board on the first landing raised up greeted us. Inside we were welcomed with a filthy house, a washer full of wet sheets, towels in the dryer ( "oh sorry the maids forgot to come back") and a master shower so disgusting that flip flops were required. The paint was peeling in almost every window sill and sliding door casings and the towel bar in the master bath was broken off the wall. The sliding door handle off master to upstairs porch was broken off and could not be shut from outside ( actually found the handle in a bowl on dining room table with a note from the man that said the handle broke off in his hand. Dining room table sides ( where carving was) was SO filthy I was thankful I didn't have small children there. Junk and plywood piled in kitchen pantry making it unusable for storing groceries. Ceiling peeling in downstairs bath, carpets with multiple ( not one or two) dog stains present ...the list goes on and on. It appears normal maintenance to this house is non existent. It's a shame VRBO allows owners to advertise homes in the condition ours was in. I wish VRBO had a way to post renters pictures the way trip advisor has. Renters Beware!

Best ocean and channel view on the island

  • 4 of 5

The view from the ocean porch is a complete vacation all by its self! Golf cart and amenity cards make it a perfect vacation rental. Fripp Island is just flat fun! Great beaches and just a hop from Hunting’s Island where you can see a lighthouse and the coast as it once was! We fed the deer blueberries, and saw ospreys, raccoons, mink, and every water bird the coast has to offer! Great place for two couples and some kids or an 41 anniversary!

Loved our time here

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our son's USMC boot camp graduation. We absolutely loved the sunsets and sunrises. the house was more than accommodating for our needs. The deer where a wonderful surprise. They ate our of our hands and were loving. The owners were overly accommodating with anything we needed. The weather was very cold when we were there two weeks ago and it turned out to be a blessing. The sand fleas were no joke the day we were leaving when the weather warmed up.

We loved this home. We are a family of 5. My Marine is 19, two daughters that are 17 and 9. I cooked every night we were there and had everything we needed in the kitchen, besides the food and beverages.
