The cottage is beautifully presented, of all the rental properties we have visited this is among the most tastefully and stylishly furnished and decorated. The kitchen is well equipped; we cooked most of our meals here (having stocked up on the journey). The two decks are lovely during the day and in the evening, but don't forget your insect repellent in this part of the country.
When the tide is high, you can walk around the corner (2 mins) and jump straight from the steps into the warm, gently rocking water. At low tide, add another few seconds walk down the beach. We decided to rent bicycles and enjoy exploring the island - and it was wonderful. You can pedal along the roads, sidewalks, paths and boardwalks, and admire both the beautiful beach and the vast acres of salt marsh covered with cordgrass. You can see so much more of the island than you would from a car or golf cart. We also enjoyed playing tennis late in the afternoon; the courts are very well managed and maintained and the team there are helpful and friendly. The bicycle rental, tennis courts, shops and restaurants all required an amenities card for each of us. With so many people only visiting on vacation, it seemed reasonable to us that we contribute to the island facilities (especially as it isn't expensive).
Overall, we loved Fripp Island; we loved the cottage; we had a hugely enjoyable and relaxing stay. The owner (Mary Beth) was helpful, efficient and friendly throughout. Highly recommended.
