Guestbook comments from the owner

This home made our vacation a success. It had all of the necessary components for a family to wind down and spend quality time together. The home is located in an excellent location on the island and we enjoyed being so close to all the activities that are offered on Fripp Island. The owner was great and assisted us with all of our questions and needs in regards to our stay. I highly recommend the Express Rest as a location to take your family to make great memories and to enjoy the beauty of Fripp Island. Thanks

Perfect Girls' Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

With 14 school days left on the calendar, four other teachers and I decided to get away and relax before the end of school crunch. This was the perfect location! With two golf carts and bicycles for each of us we were able to see and explore the island after we parked our cars for the weekend. The house was comfortably furnished and it felt like we were staying at the home of friends. The screened porches were wonderful to sit and chat. The beach we visited was perfect! When we each left, we felt revived and ready to wind down the school year. We plan to make this a yearly tradition and would definitely stay at Express Rest again!

Express Rest

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Express Rest. It was clean, comfortable, very well maintaned. The rooms were light, open and airy. The screened porches were an added bonus. We used the golf carts daily to go to the beach and to go bird watching. The kitchen was well stocked. There were plenty of things to do on the Island and we were in close proximity to several places for day trips.

Wonderful week on Fripp despite less than desirable weather. Walked or golf carted all over the island looking at the incredible diversity of birds esp the herons in their rookeries. Also spent time in Frogmoor and Beaufort enjoying scenery, shopping and food. The island offers multiple opportunities for recreation-tennis, golf, kayaking, biking, fishing and swimming in either the ocean or the pool at the Cabana. This is a fabulous location for kids of all ages and boasts a Nature Center where there are many types of activities. The house at 27 Sea Mist is a lovely residence down the street from the Cabana and within walking distance of the Nature Center and the pier. The house is attractively appointed with two screened porches on first floor and two open on second floor. The kitchen is more than equal to gourmet cooking esp of the fresh seafood and produce obtainable a short drive away. The master bedroom suite is simply lovely and the other three bedrooms are also tastefully decorated.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house in a great location. You are close to the pool and the beach. The rooms are spacious and each bedroom has a bathroom and a porch. The golf carts were so much fun. Great island with a wonderfully interesting history. The owners provide puzzles, numerous books (for all age levels) and even DVD movies. There is so much to do! We didn't want to leave.

Great Spring Break Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The "Express Rest" home was perfect for a vacation with friends with families. The house was very clean and decorated very nicely with updated furniture. The dining table is really big to handle a larger crowd for meals which was great. All of the screen porches are an added bonus. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need for making meals for several people and well organized. The owner including 2 golf carts and 6 beach cruiser bikes complete the package! The owner was great to work with and very timely with any questions we had. Thank you Jim for making everything so easy and enjoyable. We all give this rental an A rating and hope to return sometime soon!

Spring Break with Friends

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded expectations! It was an absolutely perfect destination for a spring break trip with friends. The interior was beautiful, clean, and well equipped with everything that we needed. The golf carts were great for getting around the island and the bicycles provided a fun way to enjoy the island scenery and explore everything else that the island had to offer. It was a great experience and I would love to revisit in the future.
