Great location & perfect for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

This house was at a great location and perfect for multiple families with lots of little ones. The kitchen has plenty of seating for family dinners and the two master bedrooms / bathrooms were wonderful for our group. The screened in porches are wonderful for afternoons on the porch without mosquitoes! Look forward to coming back next year.

Great place for a large family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Great place to take an extended family vacation! We took our grown children and grandkids here to celebrate our wedding. It was terrific! There was room for everyone in the large kitchen. It's very close to beach access and all of the pools. The back patio was terrific and it was actually cool enough a few nights in June to use it. We had a wonderful time at the Marsh Mellow!

Great Location on family friendly island.

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome week at Marsh Mellow with the kids and grand kids. The house was in good shape. We loved the screened in porches both upstairs-overlooking the salt marsh, and downstairs- off the dining & living room.

Hunting State Park is a must see.

We loved all the variety of activities, the golf carts & the wild life.

We had a couple of minor issues with internet and bedding and the owners were very responsive to our needs.

If you are looking to make great family memories Fripp Island and Marsh Mellow are a great place to make that happen!
