We also have a sleeper sofa in the alcove off the living room.

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much we enjoy your home on Fripp. We love being with our family and relaxing on the deck. The improvements you have made are really nice? We hope to return soon.

Our family fell in love with Fripp when we started coming with our kids in the 90's. About 7 years ago we were fortunate enough to purchase our home. We try to enjoy it as often as we can get away from the Atlanta craziness and get down to the slow pace on Fripp.

LOVED THIS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here this past weekend, arriving back home last night. The owner is so friendly and helpful and the house is BEAUTIFUL! The layout is great, and the back porch is even better. Just a short golf cart ride to the beach, brand new charcoal grill, the photos don't do this place justice. The house was spotless and everything was in great condition. The only thing we had a slight issue with was the TV in the living room...even turned up to 100%, we could barely hear it. But who watches TV on vacation anyways? I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking to rent on Fripp!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Exactly what we were looking for! Clean, roomy, and view was spectacular. Located off the beaten path just enough so we could relax and not worry about the kids getting in traffic. Wifi and cable worked fine but really didn't go to Fripp for the internet or TV. The wildlife abound and that made it all the better. Maybe back next year or sooner.

NICE HOME WITH SOME QUALIFICATIONS

  • 3 of 5
The home was comfortable with all basic furnishings . There were plenty of towels, blankets and dishes for a large group. The back deck was very pleasant. It was nice that it was completely enclosed so my dog could lay out in the sun. The beds were very basic and we might not have been comfortable in any other than the master bedroom. The others were definitely not pillow-top as we are used to at home. My major concern was the it appears that while the owner did not advertise wi-fi the home was setup for it but it was disconnected. When I called her she said we could link to the neighbors service which was helpful. I think both the cable and wi-fi were a package and that's why we had no cable TV even though it was advertised. Since the living room TV has no remote one because all of them are for the non working cable system we had to stand by it to change the channels -- which were on antenna. Also the golf cart did not charge and I'm quite sure no monthly service was checking on the cart. So, it seems like the owner needs to fix just a few very basic things to make it a very good deal. If the beds were just a bit better, a few new frying pans were purchased, the golf cart was working and the cable restored you would not find a better deal on the island.

Owner's Response: A new cable box was Installed--usual issues with Comcast was the problem!New 40 inch tv purchased for living, although the other tv was fine last time I was there. We do our best to keep everything in best repair and keep our rental prices as low as possible for families to enjoy time on Fripp.

GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY GET-A-WAY

  • 4 of 5
This Fripp Island home is nestled in the trees, overlooking a lake. It is a very serene area, but does not look like a typical beach house setting. Once inside though, and you see all the citrus colors, and decor, it puts you right in the mood for being a beach bum for a while. You do have to take a golf cart to get to the beach access area and carry your stuff down long paths. Having a golf cart included is a very nice perk, and it is the best way to get to all the amenities, and fun too, as everyone is buzzing around the roads in golf carts. You have to drive your car to get to the park, and we felt the admission price to go look at the lighthouse was not worth it.
The kitchen was very well stocked, linens were ample, and all 3 bedrooms have a TV, which is rare in most rentals. But you will want to spend most of your time on the deck, which has a large table for dining outside, there were no bugs, had great views of the herons nearby, felt very private even though houses are all around you, and the tame deer walk right up in the yard. We recommend the Gay Fish Market as you approach the bridge to get some wonderful fresh seafood to grill. We loved our time spent here, and if we wanted to rent closer to the beach next time, we'd have to pay a lot more, so this lakefront house is the best deal.
