Guestbook comments from the owner

This summer we had a wonderful family vacation on Fripp Island staying at Ocean Pearl.What a beautiful home that was well equipped with everything you might need .and well maintained by the owner, Merritt Wilkerson. You could tell by talking with him that he wanted to make you feel welcome and see that your needs were being met while on vacation.

The ocean view was delightful and the location of the home was in close proximity to the Pools, Golf Coarse, and Club House. The elevator and Golf Cart were certainly a big plus. My two year Grandson loved the deer that came up to the house every day.

We have stayed at many vacation homes and I think this was our favorite. We hope to be back some day

Nicely stocked kitchen equipment. Enjoyed deck and views. Would have preferred ramp to beach vs stairs, but can't have everything. Beach Access 15 nice and not too far on golf cart. But basically do otherwise have it all at Ocean Pearl. Thank you! Our second time here at OP.

Owner's Response: SO THAT OTHERS WILL KNOW; Handicapped beach access is number 15 on Rock Beauty Road just north of the Beach Club. Thanks Merritt

Beautiful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing spring break week, made all the better by this perfect home! Was a mostly very cold week, so we spent much of our time playing games or reading books provided in this house. Cable TV/Disney Junior was a big hit with the youngest guests!

The house is extremely well-equipped for larger families as well as those with wide age ranges. We had 11 family members on vacation together. The four kids were 14 months, almost 3, 14 & 17, with 8 adults ages 30-80...all had a wonderful time!

Merritt and the property manager were great to work with, very kind and responsive to any question or need. The island is one of our favorites, after years of spring break weeks spent on the islands of St. George, FL and Holden Beach, NC, Fripp is the best for us drive-wise, and using a golf cart versus car for the week is a convenient, fun mode of transportation. We have nothing but good to say about Fripp Island, this home and it's owner/property manager!

Best house on Fripp!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my gosh, as if it couldn't get any better, now Ocean Pearl has a beautiful 4th bedroom, an ice maker (yes!), and a huge smart TV. We have stayed here for many years and it is definitely a "cut above" and keeps getting better. This house is beautiful and, as others have mentioned, is perfect for any season and for all (elevator, outdoor hot shower, incredibly well equipped kitchen for us cooks, 2 refrigerators, gas fireplace, gas grill, very spacious rooms with TVs and bathroom for each, wonderful sunroom, spacious deck, very close to beach...). We are so grateful for all the thought put into making this such a special place.

This place is awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

Well this review is late but better late than never. We rented this house the last week of September 2016 and had wonderful time (the week before Hurricane Matthew hit). We come to the island every year and this is the first time we rented this house. We will be back!! The place was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the view was magnificent!

Our requirements for a house on Fripp are as follows: Beach front, room for a large group, amenities such as a golf cart and amenity cards, etc. This house exceeded our expectations. We had a large group and there was room for everyone. The elevator was great for my mom who has trouble getting around and for bringing up all the stuff we brought. The house has tons of amenities and an extra ice maker which is a must in our group.

The photo makes the walk to the beach look further than it is. It wasn’t far at all. The golf cart was well maintained. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. I can go on and on.

Beautiful beachfront house

We stayed at Ocean Pearl for Spring Break with our two children. We could not have asked for a more perfect place on the beach. Highly recommended.
