Marsh front vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is not big, but it is cozy--three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, livingroom/diningroom combination, and a nice sized screened in porch. My family and I loved the location. Although it is located in a convenient neighborhood right next to the marsh boardwalk, the trees and foliage surrounding the house create a feeling of seclusion and privacy. The children enjoyed playing under the branches of a bent oak tree overhanging the marsh directly behind the house. A lovely neighborhood pool is located across the street.

Great experience! The house was much larger than we had originally thought from looking at the pictures. Loved the neighborhood and location. We would definitely love to stay in the house again!

Peaceful and serene!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at this property. It was a very relaxing vacation. The house had everything we could possibly need. It was clean and well maintained. It is large enough for a family, and the location was perfect for our tastes. It sits on a beautiful marsh. Wildlife is everywhere to observe. The deer come right up to the porch; birds are in abundance. The house has a large living room, two full baths, well equipped kitchen, laundry room, and three large bedrooms. The back porch is where we lived. It is screened in and has the best views ever. We used the included golf cart to go to the beach; there are several access points. We also used it anytime we were out on the island, exploring and looking for turtle nests. The community pool is right across the street. We were thrilled we could bring our small dog, and he too loved it there. We are returning to this property! Thanks Marnie for being such a great owner. You were so easy to work with, especially since we had to reschedule due to Hurricane Matthew!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This property was very convenient to reach the beach access near the clubhouse. Paths are perfect for bike riding. It is is a quite location on the marsh, away from hustle and bustle. Screened porch kept the bugs away nicely.

Beds were comfy, plenty of bath towels and linens. Bathrooms were clean, but bring toilet paper for your stay, there wasn't any past the first use. Don't forget you will need to bring paper towels, napkins, hand soaps, dish detergent, dishwasher detergent, and laundry soap as well.

Overall, the home was efficient and a good value for the price. If you are accustomed to luxury homes & high end to finishes, you may want a more modern rental. This place is adequate, but pretty "basic".

Wonderful home on Fripp Island!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults and 1 dog... This home was perfect for us! We really enjoyed the community pool directly across the street. It is a hike to the beach, but the golf cart made that better. If you're a party larger than 4... you might want to consider renting an additional golf cart. Wonderful stay! Thanks for all of your help Marnie!

Terrific Location & Comfortable House

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed 4 days on Fripp Island for a wedding. The location of the house is fantastic, and the react that it's let friendly is a huge bonus -- my dad was over the moon about bringing his elderly small dog. The views of the marsh are great and the porches are secluded to where you do not feel like you're on top of your neighbor. We enjoyed several nights on the back porch grilling and playing dominos -- even during a heck of a thunderstorm, which was really awesome to watch!

The acesss to the golf cart was much appreciated as we had other family on the island and having quick transportation to their houses was great. We did have breaker issues because of the storm with the cart on the first day, but thankfully we have handy men in the family who figured it out and got us up and going in no time.

A few things to note: you have to bring your own paper products (toilet paper, paper towels), trash bags, and cleaning products (hand soap, dishwashing liquid, detergent). That wasn't a huge deal, but make sure you get these items in Beaufort because if you buy them near the island they are very expensive. Additionally, between certain months there is no trash collection so you must haul out everything you bring in. Make sure you're driving a car that you don't mind putting trash into.

Overall, the house is great and I would most definitely rent it again and suggest it to friends and family.
