"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!"

"We are Fripp veterans who for many years have rented beachfront or near beachfront houses for the view and sound of the ocean. This home, which we have rented for the past two years, offers a visual spectacle which exceeds those of many beachfront properties, particular ones which are no longer as close to the water because of the shifting shoreline.
From the rear deck (south side of the house) as well as from other points inside the house, early risers can be treated to sunrises over the ocean. There are nearby lagoons to the south and west and Ocean Point fairways which border the lagoons. Further enhancing this panorama are frequent visits from blue herons and egrets as well as flights of pelicans and other seabirds higher overhead. Fish jumping from the surface in the lagoons join the party later in the day.
By mid afternoon we find the views are at their best with a near fully shaded deck and a westerly breeze which makes you forget that it's mid summer.
The house is not to be overshadowed by the exterior views, as it is very clean, comfortable, well decorated and with plenty of room for guests. A large dining area and table make for extra comfort at meal time. The kitchen is well supplied with proper cookware and appliances to prepare most any type of meal.
We found the owner to be friendly, helpful and very caring for the comfort of guests.
Recommended For: A wide range of age groups - families with children from grade school to young adults., couples who enjoy traveling together, golfers and tennis players, 55+ age groups.

"We had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and comfortable and the beach is fantastic and not at all crowded (at least the weekend we were there at the end of August.) Other than us, I think we saw less than 10 other people on the beach. All in all, it was a great place to stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again the next time we have a large gathering."

"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!!!"
