  • What a Great Place for a Family Vacation - Southern Belle 1

    "Our family of 8 Adults and 4 precious Grand babies spent a wonderful week on Fripp Island staying at the Southern Belle. The home is beautiful inside and out and was laid out especially well for our family. There are great places for everyone to spend time together and places to escape for a while with a good book when you wanted. We found everything in the house that we needed to have a great time. The beds were very comfortable which allowed for lots of good sleep until the babies came to snuggle. We took advantage of golf carts, bikes and our group really enjoyed the pedal surry. Everything was clean and ready to go when we arrived. We had the opportunity to meet the local caretakers. They were very friendly and helpful. Away from the house there was plenty to do to keep us busy - beach, pools, fishing (we even caught something this time). This is not the first time that I have rented from this owner and it definitely wont be the last.. Thank you Michael for helping us enjoy a full week of family together."

  • Our third year in paradise

    "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!!!"

  • Wonderful!

    "This home is beautifully situated on a quiet street right on the ocean. It has a large deck overlooking the ocean with plenty of lounge chairs, tables and other seating. Sunrises and sunsets are amazing from here! The location is very convenient to Ocean Creek Golf Course, the marina, The Cabana Club, the Beach Club and tennis facilities. The house is immaculate and very spacious with a great kitchen and dining area that seats 11. The kitchen was very well equipped with plates, glasses, pots and pans, utensils and nice appliances. Everything feels bright and airy with plenty of windows to take advantage of the stunning views. It is ideal for two families or for one family who just wants to spread out a little! We were a family of four traveling with my parents who have trouble with steps. They stayed in the enormous first floor master with ensuite bathroom and separate entry onto the deck. It was perfect for them in that they didn't need to negotiate any stairs and they had their privacy. There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor, one ensuite. Our only complaint was that the ensuite bedroom should have one king size bed vs. 2 doubles. There is also a large loft area upstairs that is great for young kids or teenagers who want to get away from their parents : ) Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. Couple of thoughts...a house of this caliber should come with at least one golf cart. A few bikes would also be nice. Once you are on the island, bikes and golf carts are the preferred mode of transportation. That said, we would absolutely rent here again!"
