Could be much better

  • 2 of 5

I'll begin my review with the good aspects of the property. As this was my first trip to Fripp, I really enjoyed the island. It isn't a place to go if you enjoy crowds, are looking for shopping and restaurants or seek nightlife, but it is great for disconnecting, cooking in and enjoying the beach and outdoors. The house is well located and is very spacious. The dock directly behind the house is great for fishing or simply relaxing.

As for the bad, the house is in need of some TLC. The carpet is stained, worn and in several places torn and in many places, especially in corners and along the baseboards, there was visible dirt. The couch was also quite worn and in need of replacement. The dishes and cookware was nasty and looked as if someone had rinsed off with water and stuck back in the cabinet. This is something the cleaning crew should have caught. The fridge wreaked of a fish odor. The bath towels were stained and worn. The TV's looked like they were from the 1980's timeframe. There were tons of scratches and scuff marks on the walls and the interior could have used a paint job. The grill outside was nasty and full of a ton of charcoal ash. The toilet paper was obviously the cheapest available one-ply paper and the toiletries, which I never use, were also cheap. The dock leading to the creek behind the house had several nails sticking out and warped boards that could be dangerous for little ones or do a doozy on your toes.

I understand things won't be perfect with a vacation rental and I always try to closely review photos and look over reviews prior to booking a rental. My due diligence didn't pay off this trip, as I have never had such a long list of disappointments with a booking. As stated, the property is really great and has so much potential. Finding a new cleaning crew and spending a few thousand to get the house back in shape would quickly turn the property into a 5 star.

With attention - could be Great

  • 3 of 5

This home appears to be a pure investment property. I say that because I believe a lot of details would be handled better if the owner spent time in the rental. I could be completely wrong in my assessment but this is what I experienced. The package of information was a great idea if it had been current. The articles were photo copied many times over and weren't legible. The home itself is beautifully decorated and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the layout is very nice. The location of the home is good too, across from a park if you have little ones but not a short walk to the pool or beach. It is the details that although stand alone are not significant, they begin to add up and for the price you do expect some of these basics to be covered. There was not a rental book/guide with the house - at least not that we found. The materials sent ahead of time were probably suppose to cover this need however the information was not always there or accurate. The WIFI codes in the materials were outdated and you had to discover the codes on a piece of paper on the kitchen wall to login. There is apparently a problem with the cable line into the house as most all the TV's had an extremely grainy picture. We troubleshot over an hour and could not resolve the poor picture quality. The coffee maker in the kitchen did not have any filters provided nor did the materials indicate what type of coffee maker was provided so that we could provide our own. There were no trash bags provided. The materials ask you to move the trash cans to the curb on trash day but no trash day was given. The kitchen at first glance is well stocked but once you start cooking you realize it is missing some key supplies. For ex. there was only 1 serving bowl. No platters or larger bowls. There is one oven mit - no other hot pads. A grater would be nice as a few storage containers. The guest bedroom did not have a working overhead light - could have been a blown bulb?? There were no luggage racks and the towels are subcontracted to a service and the quality was poor. These are all very little things that could easily not bother most people. The location of the home is nice and as said before the decorating is very pretty. If the few things are corrected above this could be a great rental.

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5

I actually had the chance to stay in this home back in 2005, my first trip to Fripp Island. My best friend grew up spending summers at Fripp with her family. Her dream was to get married on the island and in 2005 that became her reality. Her family rented this home for them to stay and invited me, her maid of honor, to stay with her. It was an amazing week on so many levels but being in this home played a huge role in it being a great experience. Fripp is such a great island, a fabulous place to take your family between the natural setting, the beach, the pools, the deer, the golf courses, the activities - all the homes are great but honestly, being on the canal is really unique. This home is perfect and the fact it is on the canal makes it special. It provides a private retreat, the dock invites you to drink coffee and watch the sun come up, or hang out and watch the stars at night. You can go fishing right off the private dock. It's close enough to get to all the action but allows you to just enjoy being "home" at the same time. A perfect home! We now return to Fripp every summer with our two young children, I always remember the amazing time at this house the fondest!

My husband and I have rented from the Barnes now for 3 years. Their houses are awesome and their locations are perfect. You are right in the middle between the beach and the kids pool. You also get front row view of the playground and basket ball court. This will be our 7year vacationing to FRIPP . We wouldn't rent from anyone else.

Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

This property is for all those that want good family memories and being able to relax. My boys and I have already stayed here 2 summers and are planning on this summer 2011. Having the private dock to fish, crab & shrimp is priceless. My boys run to the dock the second we pull up. My older son caught an eel within seconds! They hang crab cages off the dock and run out every morning & evening to see what treasures we may have. They are able to catch their own bait to fish off the landing just down the road. The location allows your kids to play at the playground (across the street) & bike to the pool (2 minutes away) "on their own"! Sitting out on the spacious screened in back porch in the evening is quiet and relaxing! I love sitting there and talking with the family & friends of all the fun memories from day to day and year to year! Each summer we have a smoothie making competition to see if we can out do last year's..what fun! Thank you to the property owners for always making our stay feel warm and like it is home. My boys consider it their summer home and are always planning the next summer the minute we leave. I hope they keep this going for generations! Yes the beds are very comfortable and it is very clean! The Marina is just down the road to get all fishing supplies and small items you may have forgot at home. There are restaurants and A food court close by for those who do not want to cook. Great ice cream! When my boys were younger we would get our PJ's on and ride on the golf cart to get the evening ice cream! Again the owners are very helpful and make your vacation just that "A Vacation". Enjoy your time at this property and hope your family memories last for years to come!

Wonderful accommodations for large family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting this property and we were so very pleased with everything. Our large family of eight was very comfortable with the accommodations. The home is extremely modern and very tastefully decorated. Being on the canal was a plus for us as we were able to bring our boat. The photos and description were accurate; you can be confident of what you will see when you view the website.

Joan was most helpful in answering all questions. I would recommend this property without any hesitation.

This luxury cottage is located in Ocean Creek on Fripp Island right on the Tidal Creek. A large sitting/fishing dock allows you to bring a boat and dock it right at the cottage. Crab pots make it a fun treat for kids and adults alike as you can catch your dinner right from the dock. Perfect place for a quiet glass of wine by the moon light for adults to enjoy the sites and sounds of the marsh and canal by the moonlight.

Golf: Fripp Island has 2 golf courses and has been rated by Golf Magazine with 4.5 stars.
