Winter trip to Fripp

  • 5 of 5

Our family's (Wife, me, 3 kids ages 5, 8, 10 and dog) first trip to Fripp during Christmas break and we loved it. It was cold but this house was very comfortable. Beautiful views of the marsh made for a great sunrise cup of coffee. Marnie, our host, was so accommodating and checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed and that everything was working ok. Golf cart was great but it's also an easy walk to a very nice part of the beach! Flat screen TV's with cable in all three bedrooms as well as the living room kept us entertained when temperatures were below freezing - which is rare for Fripp! This home is a great value on this beautiful island.

Great house, great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at the vacation home and on Fripp Island. The property was clean and orderly and we had a great time there. A buck deer stayed around the house during the stay and actually walked over to me when I was on the golf cart and I patted him on the forehead. Having a golf cart is a great addition, as it is the best way, by far of seeing the island and going to the beach to walk or fish. The island is very scenic and safe and secure. The only down side was needing a "amenities card" to do things like eating in the restaurants and renting bikes, paddleboards, etc., on the island. Seems less than intelligent as we wanted to rent bikes, they had many extra bikes, but they were left unrented because most visitors did not have a card. They just don't make as much revenue as they could otherwise. However, there are great restaurants not too far from island.

Our stay here was fantastic. Marnie was a great hostess, and was always responsive to questions.

The location was quiet and the house was clean. The back porch was the place we all hung out at looking at the wildlife and watching the changing tide. The boardwalk nearby and the golf cart really enhanced the stay. Thanks Marnie. The Pruitts

Back again

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house before and likely will do so again. It is well equipped and maintained, nicely furnished, with great times for relaxing on the porch and watching the marsh as well as excellent star gazing since there is no ambient light on the island. The owner is very easy to work with. BTW, two hurricanes in two years have had little or no long term effect on Fripp Island, unlike some others nearby.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on the marsh. It was so relaxing to sit on the screen porch for meals and game night. Golf cart made everything on the island convenient. The pool

Across the street was great and we were usually the only ones there. Marnie was awesome to work with. Can't wait to return.
