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, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Fripp at this home. It is conveniently located near the marina and the sunsets were breathtaking! The home's layout was perfect for our family, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. It was very clean and nicely decorated. We spent most of our time outdoors, but when we were at the house, we enjoyed relaxing on the porch enjoying the views. Claire was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this property to others looking for a great vacation spot!

Great house in a prime location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Fripp and we absolutely loved it! We booked fairly last minute and had no difficulty with the process. What sold us on this house in particular was the location (it is a very short walk to the Bonito Boathouse) and all the "toys" that were included with the rental. The thing we loved most about our trip was exploring the island on the golf cart. The back porch has an amazing view and we loved sipping our morning coffee and evening drinks on it. Unfortunately it was cloudy during our stay so we missed out on the "spectacular sunsets". The master bed was quite comfortable. I especially loved that the house was stocked with the basics you need such as toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, trash bags, etc. We only stayed two nights and having to bring or purchase those items for such a short stay would have been a pain. I thought the rules regarding check out cleaning were a bit of an overkill for us as we were only there two nights, didn't spend much time on the beach, and there were only two of us (no kids). However, I can see how this would be necessary in the summer with a longer rental and kids. We loved it and will be back!
