"We just got back from what was probably our best vacation at Fripp yet! This home lives up to everything you'd expect from the pictures and other reviews. From the moment we walked up to the front doors and looked through the house to see the ocean, we couldn't get enough of the views. Every bedroom has a view of the ocean, and you can even enjoy it from a couple of the bathrooms! The memory foam king sized bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable... certainly not what you'd usually find in a rental at the beach. The fully stocked kitchen goes well beyond others that we've experienced. It's really like you're staying in someone's house while they're out of town - not just a place with whatever was cheap or left over from home was tossed together to check off all of the boxes. We also appreciated that the house was very clean. We made a point of having an afternoon "siesta" on the screened porch every day, just to enjoy the sea birds cruising overhead, and the never ending ocean breezes. At night, the view of the stars from the deck was breathtaking. The owner, Barbara, was wonderful to work with - and amazingly responsive to one very minor issue that we had with the golf cart - using her island connections to have it resolved in less than 30 minutes. If you want to be right on the ocean, with your own steps to the beach - this is a place you should really consider.
Not directly related to the house - but a cool "Fripp Tip" for you... if you're on the island during the time that the loggerhead sea turtles are hatching, go by the nature center and find out when the turtle team will be doing a "nest inventory." After a nest hatches, they wait 3 days, and then dig up the nest site. They note how many turtles hatched, and look for stragglers. We got to see 4 babies that didn't leave the nest with their siblings make their way to the ocean! This brought out a huge crowd (by Fripp standards) and the kids especially enjoyed it."
