Perfect stay on Fripp!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend staying at the Herbert house! This was our first time using VRBO. We were invited to a wedding on Fripp and having never been there before, it became quickly apparent that we would need to rent a house. I knew I wanted a house with a water view, as well as a house that offered equal bathrooms to bedrooms. A quick search pulled up the 3 bed/3 bath Herbert House, which perfectly met these criteria.

The Herbert house is located in the marina and overlooks the really beautiful marsh; the sunset views on the water are breathtaking from the back porch. It's the very first house on the street and is set farther apart from the other houses on the street, giving loads of privacy. From the house, you can walk to Bonito Boathouse for dinner, take an evening cruise, put in the kayak for a sunset dolphin trip, or take a dip in the small marina pool. It may not be the beach, but there is plenty to do! It's a quick bike ride (and even faster golf cart ride) to the golf course and beach.

The house is well-equipped for you to come in and make yourself right at home. I highly recommend stopping in the Publix in Beaufort on your way in to stock up on food supplies for your stay as the Herbert kitchen is a great place to make your daily meals. There are loads of movies, books, and board games to entertain you should you want a low-key day around the house. I spent several hours happily sitting on the back patio with my cup of tea, watching the birds and deer (so many deer!) along the marsh. Extremely peaceful and stunning.

The 3 bedrooms are a great feature of this house. Each bedroom has its own full bath and patio. The master has a comfy king bed and giant tub (with views!) and its own patio. It wound up being just the two of us that stayed here and we were so happy with the master bedroom. The other room on the top floor has 2 full size beds plus the room on the bottom floor has a full size bed. There is an alcove upstairs where an air mattress could be placed if needed. Plenty of towels too (both bath and beach!). We also loved that we had use of bicycles, golf cart, and a 2 person sit-on-top kayak during our stay!

Most importantly, Claire. Claire was a dream come true to work with. Prompt to every inquiry (and I had a LOT!), she was very professional and kind. She made me feel very welcome to her home and she also promptly addressed issues encountered. My damage refund was promptly returned as well, which was awesome!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house. It was a great location near the marina. The sunsets were amazing. We had 7 adults and it was roomy enough for us. We used the space between the bedrooms for the 7th person. It has a pullout bed but we used an air mattress. We loved the golf cart and took it to the beach every day.

The cleaning list when we left was a little much but we did it.

It was a great week at a Fripp!

Beautiful home, beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Staying on Fripp Island was like no other vacation. I have never stayed on a private island before. The house was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the kayak and the bikes. There was a problem with the golf cart when we arrived and Jack quickly made arrangements so that we could rent one from the island rental. I would definitely recommend Fripp and The Herbert House to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun family vacation.

My daughter declared that it was the "best house"...And she is a tough critic.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived during some pretty windy, rainy post Harvey weather. The house provided us with many alternatives to being outside for the first 2 days.There was nothing lacking to make our stay PERFECT. I cooked every night but one in a very well equipped kitchen. The porches were great,the view was stunning. The golf cart great. can not say enough great things about this home. Owners great to work with .We hope to return and bring the whole gang next time!
