This place is the real deal! We have two families of four that have been vacationing up and down the NC/SC coast for years now. Fripp Island has become our favorite and this house is now our favorite on Fripp. Sharp decoration, comfortable bedrooms/baths, and a great kitchen made our time inside great. The gas grill/kitchen handled all our dinners with no problem (we cooked fresh seafood almost every night) - nice that the grill it is right outside the kitchen door. BTW, when you are inside you feel like you are on a cruise - all you see is water out the windows. The garage worked perfectly - we had three golf carts lined up where we could keep them charged and there is plenty of room to store chairs/fishing gear/coolers/etc with a hose outside for rinsing everything off. Outside is fantastic - great wrap around deck that always has a breeze and plenty of room in the grass for a game of cornhole or bocce. There is an empty lot next door so you have an unobstructed view and total privacy. The fishing was great right off the seawall - everybody caught fish and we even had a couple big enough to eat! The water is the best part - it is literally feet from the house and when sitting on the deck it is right below you -- it is fun to just sit back and watch the tides come in and out and yes we saw plenty of dolphins. At night you can sit on the deck and just listen to the water lap up against the seawall - very relaxing for sure. In addition, we liked being on the north end of the island off of the main strip - all that is just a golf cart ride away including your favorite beach access. The last point is that we really enjoyed working with the owner - he was very responsive answering all our questions leading up to our week and we had no problems at all with the house during our vacation. We loved this place so much we are already booked for 2015!
