House, OCEAN FRONT 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16+pack and play)
We visited Fripp Island for the first time in 2000. We came back a month later and bought our first home here. That is a 3 bedroom home on the Ocean Creek Golf Course, VRBO listing #18539. Simply said, we fell instantly, head-over-heels in love with Fripp. In the beginning we lived on the East Coast and were able to spend a great deal of time here. Eventually we moved to the mid-west and that first home became a rental. I enjoy the rental business so much--especially introducing First Time Fripp Island Guests to Fripp that we have over the years purchased 3 additional homes. 15 years later I still love what I do and I still have several guests from those early years that return to stay in my homes year after year.
Owner purchased this House in 2005

HEAVEN ON THE OCEANFRONT
The house was great, exactly as pictured online. Location was great and the view of the ocean was amazing. The house was clean, kitchen well stocked, TVs good, screened porch great.
The property had plumbing problems. We had toilets that overflowed and then everything back up into bathtub. Microwave broken but was fixed next day. House was not clean.
This guest never said a word to us about the house not being clean. Reading her review after it posted was the 1st I was made aware of her observation. She had ample opportunity to mention it when I spoke to her on Saturday afternoon to let her know the over-the-stove-microwave had gone out that morning and would be replaced on Monday (the quickest we could get on short notice). We had a counter-top microwave delivered for the 2 days the built in was out of commission. I spoke with her again after the over-the-stove-microwave was installed (Monday) and, again, she did not mention a problem with cleanliness. Had I known there was a concern on her part I would have immediately sent the cleaning company back to take care of any and all issues. It is difficult to address or remedy a problem you are unaware of.
The guest did not mention anything about toilets backing up until Saturday morning as she was checking out. This left us scrambling to find a plumber on a Saturday. When he arrived that morning the plumber found this to be from an overload of toilet paper in the sewer line, which, luckily, was quickly cleared. Again, it is difficult to address or remedy a problem you are unaware of. If there were a prior problem we certainly would have dealt with it when it arose rather than take a chance on sustaining water damage to our home.
Perfect place to reconnect, celebrate & renew
When we first arrived at Fripp Island, on the way to the house, we encountered many deer who seemed "at home", comfortable... so comfortable in fact that they often lay down very close to the road so please use caution! We noted right away the large windows at the back of the home. Just you wait to see the view of the ocean while you standing anywhere on the main floor. Stunning! The kitchen is beautiful and with every pot/pan/dish you could hope to need, even a rice cooker. The dining room table...well it's beautiful. Even as I write this review, I recall all 11 of my family members sitting at that table, no phones, no distractions, sitting to eat together after prayer. The living area is perfection. Each chair and couch is remarkably comfortable and cozy. A large TV with DVD player, a few DVD's and board games are thoughtfully included in the main media area. Make your way down the hallway to find two ocean view rooms on the right with a jack and jill bathroom, two rooms on the left and a separate bathroom. Up the stairs you go to find the master suite and oh let me tell you it should be called master. It's huge. When you first get up the stairs, you have a small area separate from the room with two large doors. This room has a sleeper sofa, chairs and a TV. Our daughter said it was comfy. The master room is very large, king bed I believe, TV, tall dresser, mini fridge/bar, coffee pot, sink and huge bathroom with the biggest tub - yes you can both get in! Closets to the left and right and his and her vanity/sinks. Ladies there is a chair in there for you - another thoughtful touch. A large washer and dryer are in the closet to the left. There was laundry soap in there but I had already brought my own. Large shower separate from the tub is also in there. Both the attached room and master suite have fans. That's a huge deal to me so just wanted to mention. Now go out your door in the master suite to your private porch. Look to your left and climb the spiral staircase and star gaze!! This home is beautiful and charming; the best of an ocean front home. The beach is amazing! Gather your family and stay here to reconnect, renew, breathe... and if you have something to celebrate, a new Marine for example, this IS the home for you! We loved it! Pick up some groceries, cooking essentials...relax, take it all in and enjoy! Thank you Berta for a wonderful experience! We may not have another Marine but we want to return!
Every time is the same...Great!!!
Berta is so good about letting you know about any changes, updates, etc. so there are no surprises when you get there! She is very accommodating with anything you may need (like baby/toddler items). The house is always clean and in good condition. Should you need anything she truly is just a phone call away.
Fripp has been a super special place to our family for many years and she makes sure it continues to be!
Great location and best main family area I have seen! Really fits a atmosphere of being together Master suite is fantastic!
Disappointed and Angry
The place was filthy when we arrived. We had to clean it thoroughly before we could even unpack. There were smashed bugs on the walls. We took pictures of my grandson after he had been there crawling around for an hour and sent them to the owner. The outside was missing siding in multiple places, there were no outside seats on any of the many balconies?? Dishwasher was broken so handwashing dishes for 9 people and 4 toddlers was a joy and really made it feel like a vacation, toilets were broken, had to get the part and fix them, shower curtains were moldy, had to replace those ourselves, coffee table was broken, the fan/ light on the screened in porch didn't work. Overall this was a mess. The place could be awesome with a little attention but it was pretty clear that no one with any stake in the place had visited in a while. We love Fripp so this was very disappointing and we should have gotten our money back considering how much we had to do and buy out of our pockets to make the place livable.
First of all, I would like to mention that this traveler waited ten months to write this review.
I would love to address the issues she brings up, but her stay having taken place 10 months ago, the only thing that I really remember is that she did have a lengthy list of complaints and that I tried to take care of her needs.
So, instead of addressing this list I would like to point out that I have been renting this home (and several others nearby) since 2003. I have MANY, MANY happy, repeat guests. Many of these guests date back as far as 2004. I would also like to point out that the home has positive reviews both before and after this guest’s (August of 2018) visit.
The majority of my business is repeat guests from one year to the next and I try my very best to take care of each and every one of my guests (newcomers and old friends alike) as if they have been renting from me since the beginning.
