  • Lovely and quiet, well maintained and well stocked property.

    "We were looking for a relaxing week at the beach and we mostly got what we were looking for. I cannot complain about the anchor house at all. It is fully stocked with everything you might need. Very comfortable although the largest beds are full size. The mattresses were very comfortable as was the bedding. The kitchen had everything we could have needed including spices, cooking oils, flower and everything to make your favorite dishes. The garage downstairs had a ping-pong table and there were lots of outdoor games like Bocce. The house is out on a peninsula right by 2.5 miles of beach. It's a great walk and there's also about a 4 mile loop of very private roads if you want a nice bike ride. Also, when the tide is coming in there are trout to be caught in the bays and estuaries. Horseback riding is available on the same peninsula and if you book in advance you can take rides out onto the beach. You can also have kayaks delivered by many of the rental places in the area. This local beach is not great for swimming. Far too many shells and oyster beds. You pretty much cannot walk without shoes on without getting your feet cut up. There are excellent restaurants and shops in Beaufort (about a 20 minute drive). There are some restaurants within 10 minutes as well and if you go left out of the peninsula you head towards Hunting Island State Park. There's a great little sandwich shop on the left that offers a "Grilled Donut" that is a delectable sweet! Unfortunately for us, Hunting Island State Park was closed as they are still cleaning up from Hurricane Matthew. That is all supposed to be cleaned up by summer. We were told that the beach there is nice and sandy and better for swimming. If you bring a boat there are several launches within 20 minutes and lots of good fishing in the area but be aware that some of the bays are VERY shallow. Local knowledge and good charts is a must. I would highly recommend bringing hard core mosquito repellent even if you are just going outside to bring in the groceries. Also I would recommend the owners treat the property as there is some swampy mosquito breading grounds right next door. For golf lovers I definitely recommend the Sanctuary CC. Lovely layout and beautiful greens. TGC at Lady Smith the greens were pretty badly burnt. The waterfront in Beaufort is a nice evening stroll and a short distance from downtown is a 6 mile long biking and walking trail called "The Spanish Moss Trail"."

  • Big Chill Beach Weekend

    "This is our new secret spot and an excellent alternative to camping on Hunting Island. We loved the porch and corner window. The beach , ocean and communal pool were are all within visibility from the porch and living. This is a quiet community and a super easy get-away."

  • great view

    "My family truly enjoyed our time on Fripp Island. The view from this condo for the price is unparalleled! Bring your fishing pole as the ocean is right in front of you. The Shrimp Shack and Gay's Fish Market are awesome and right down the road. The deer come right up to you looking for a treat --the kids got a kick out of that! Savannah is simply 50 miles away, Beaufort is another town rich in history and don't forget to visit the Hunting Island lighthouse. Only one negative about our stay was the pull out sofa sleeper -- I wouldn't sleep man, child or beast on this atrocity (sorry Christina); however, the bed was very very comfortable. The one thing that I really appreciated about renting this condo was no fussing around with the cleaning fees or any other hassles. One price and done! Thank you again for opening your home to those of us just passing through!"

  • Great family beach house!

    "We enjoyed our family get-together in early June, great views, good accommodations and an abundance of wildlife. Unfortunately our vacation was cut short by illness but we all had a great time while there, crabbing, watching the tidal waters ebb and flow, and beaching it! Hope to repeat our stay , minus the illness of course."
