"This summer was our third year at Calypso. It just keeps getting better and better! The location is the best on Fripp, the view toward the ocean is spectacular, the owners treat you like you're old friends, and the house is out of this world! It's a perfect house for a large family get-together or family or friends reunion. There's so much room that everyone can eat and be together or separate to watch different tv shows or movies or have quiet conversations. Everything you need or want is there -- & lots you didn't even know you needed or wanted. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated -- far beyond what you would expect in a house at the beach. The owners are so generous to share Calypso & everything in it with renters! They offer so much -- two floors of bedrooms & baths, the main floor with an open floor plan which includes a long dining table, a relaxing living space, a full kitchen with two dishwashers (we had no idea how great that would be!), and a bar area with a small refrigerator & ice maker. The house is child-friendly with a baby gate at the top of the stairs to the downstairs bedrooms & living space, a crib, and booster seats. The fact that the house is located next to a beach access & just a short walk to the wide beach is perfect for coming and going to the beach with toddlers or older adults. The elevator is a great help in unloading/loading suitcases, groceries, and beach goers who have trouble with stairs. There are two showers on the ground level, a ping pong table, bikes, lots of beach chairs and beach toys we put to good use. We also loved the fun & convenience of the golf carts the owners have available to rent. Calypso is next to the Beach Club with its pools & activities like kids camp, team trivia, karaoke. Tennis courts are right across from the Beach Club. It truly is paradise! We can't wait to go back for another week next year!!!"
