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!

Spectacular Sunsets and Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Claire was wonderful to work with and we enjoyed staying in this beautiful home. We decided the house was in the perfect location on the island (we walked to Bonito Boathouse for a delicious meal one night) and there’s really no better view than the back porches at sunset. We loved the golf cart, bikes, and our 2 guys decided they liked kayaking so much (a completely new experience for my husband), they are planning on purchasing 2 to explore the lakes in our area. My dad did manage to catch a big bass on their excursion with Capt. Eddie too so that was a fun experience for them...and we saw 3 dolphins playing off the pier! We certainly had a great time and made wonderful memories on Fripp Island!

Wonderful house in a prime location with a view to savor!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose this house for just the two of us. It was the first time traveling to Fripp without our adult children and didn't want to miss anything we always enjoy about Fripp. We found the house to be very clean and well appointed with comfortable beds and lots of cute towels. The garage was full of nice bikes and helmets, a kayak, grill, beach chairs and a zippy golf cart. But the view from the decks will stop you in your tracks! Time seemed to stand still on the decks at dusk and dawn. This house is great for 2-5 people. It was lots of fun to be in "downtown Fripp" at the marina. We had a pool, convenience store, restaurant, and dock all right outside our door and didn't hear a peep from any of it. It was much quieter and low key than anticipated and very convenient to beach access. The Herbert's are wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome in their home.

Fun family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our 3rd family trip to Fripp Island and we'll definitely be back. The island has something for everyone - beach, pool, golf, boating, and wildlife. We enjoyed our stay at Claire's home. It was very comfortable and had everything we could have needed including bikes, beach toys, beach towels and a golf cart. We spent many mornings enjoying the view from the back patio; the view from the back of the house is amazing! Thanks for a wonderful family vacation!

Lovely home! Beautiful sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely home. Very well-stocked kitchen if you cook your meals as we do. The back yard is a great feature in the evenings for cornhole games or just watching the sunset. We discovered when we arrived that all the bicycles were basically broken, so I sent an e-mail and the owner responded very quickly by sending someone to repair three of the bikes. Later in the week, we discovered that the lights on the golf cart did not work and again, the owner responded quickly to get it repaired. I would say, however, that the beds in the two front bedrooms are not queens. They are doubles, which made for very "interesting" sleeping arrangements for tall men. This was the only thing keeping me from giving five stars.

Wonderful week at Fripp Island!

  • 5 of 5

The home is so roomy while being cozy at the same time. The beds are very comfortable and our family had plenty of space to relax. The view of the marsh is beautiful and the sunsets are amazing. We enjoyed the screened-in decks as well. The included golf cart is a major plus! We enjoyed exploring the island on it each day. Fripp is amazing...the beach, the pools, the sunsets, the marsh, the deer, nightly ice cream cones on the golf cart...a wonderful week! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
