"I stayed at the Sunsuite Studio for the month of February to do some work and to escape what is normally a very cold and snowy month in New England. Having grown up in Beaufort, I was excited to spend some time with family and friends in the area. My dogs were with me, and every morning they ran (and swam) on the beach which was practically 30 seconds from the door of the studio-- (Because it was the off season, there were very few people (if any!) on the beach at 6:00 am. The studio was very well-equipped with a large supply of towels, an extra set of sheets, dish soap, sponges, a laundry bag and hamper (helpful for doing laundry right up the stairs), as well as the standard kitchen supplies and pots, pans, utensils, etc. Having the dogs, I really appreciated the wood floor-- easy to do a daily sweep. The unit was quiet and temperature was easily controlled by the mini-split system. I was able to seamlessly connect to the internet for the month using ISLC which cost about $35. I borrowed my mom's bike and biked several times on the bike path up to the market by the gate, and the dogs and I walked through the Bird Area every day and saw herons and pelicans. The island is quiet in February, which meant that I headed off island for some meals. A great discovery was MJ's Soul Food- right down Highway 21. Incredible seafood, chicken, corn bread, fried okra, and other authentic Southern fare. (They are happy to pack meals for take out also.) All in all, it was a great month. The studio was perfect for rest and relaxation and a little work! Super location on Fripp Island and very dog friendly! The owners were easily accessible and helpful when I accidentally locked the key inside the studio! Thanks so much for a great time away!"
