Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Oyster Catcher for a family reunion and our group included 6 adults and 3 young boys. We found the property to be in very good condition and thoughtfully appointed with all the necessary items for a great beach vacation! All the advertised amenities were provided and the owner was more than accommodating, responsive, and courteous in every respect; even when unexpected assistance was needed. The interior living space was roomy and the furnishings and decor were tasteful. The linens were of good quality and the beds quite comfortable. We especially enjoyed the home's screened porch, lovely front deck, and dock! Fripp Island is a beautiful location and offers so much, we hated to leave; though even after our vacation, the owners continued their wonderful customer service when a treasured item had been left behind. Thank you for a lovely stay! We look forward to return visits!

Best of both worlds-Beach & creek at your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

We love Fripp, but staying at this house truly made our trip fantastic! First it's almost at the point of the island (which turns into the main drag for golf carts to cruise at dusk, and you have a front row seat :) We love that we were directly across the street from the beach and also that we were sitting right on the creek with our own dock! Crabbing, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating all from our backyard -What a treat. Our 3 boys were in heaven. Not to mention the island is covered in deer and some will walk right up to you. When the boys wanted a break from the beach and boat, we would drive over to the pool near Wardel's Landing for lunch (a good one), swimming and a few frosty beverages for mom and dad :) We trailered our boat down and kept it at the marina which gave us even more chances to explore around the waterways. One thing I was dying to do, but the weather did not permit during our visit, was rent paddleboards and go over to Pritchard's Island (which is just across the river from the dock at the house!) We did get to go spend an afternoon exploring on Pritchard's though and that kept my boys (and us) thoroughly entertained. I highly suggest going to Johnson Creek Tavern for some great fried shrimp - we live in Charleston, SC and I actually think that JCT's has some of the best I've ever had. I can't say enough about how great our week was (even with a tropical storm throwing in a few curveballs). Thank you, thank you for sharing your home with us - We can't wait to find another excuse to come back down.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't pick a better spot to stay on Fripp. This house is loaded with amenities such as a golf cart, grill, kayaks and more. We enjoyed every second of our stay and can't wait to get back. From being able to fish and kayak right off of your very own dock to walking across the street to the beach.

We will be returning over & over again!

Welch/Mariotti family vacation July 2010

  • 4 of 5

My daughter, son-in-law, their 3 boys and my 2 other grandsons, ages 19 months to 11 years, spent a week at Oyster Catcher. It is in the perfect location, just steps from beach access. We had a great time and loved Fripp Island. The owners were very accommadating and easy to deal with. The house had everything we needed and it was nice that the bedrooms were adults on one side and kids on the other, with the living space in between. I would recommend this home to anyone with a limited budget who want to be right at the beach. There was a golf cart and amenity cards included and the house had a pack and play and a toddler booster chair. We would come here again.

Romantic get-away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay here for our honeymoon and words cannot describe the beauty and peace that surrounds this island. The house is beautiful and confortable, the location if perfect, will accomodate a large family on vacation or just newlyweds wanting a romantic get away. The beach is within feet of the front door. You can watch the most beautiful sunsets just sitting on the back deck. Once you are on the island, you will not want for anything. It's your own private paradise. You can bike or ride the gold cart all over the island, play golf, tennis, go swimming, fishing, etc.,etc.,etc.. The deer are everywhere, it's amazing! The best part for me was being able to walk a few feet and VOILA!!! THE OCEAN!! It's one of the most beautiful spots I've ever been to. ENJOY!!

A Small Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My family (6 in our clan) have been to this house several times and each visit seems to outdo the last! Let's see...a cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the ocean; crabbing, shrimping, fishing or just relaxing on the dock by the canal; a short boat ride to nearby Pritchard's Island to collect some amazing shells and and even better memories; tubing; kayaking; feeding the deer who seem to want nothing more than to be a part of your vacation; swimming and eating at the beach club; bike riding everywhere; watching anglers bring in their tremendous catch by the marina; golf cart rides to playgrounds, tennis courts or golf courses --- the list just goes on and on. There is nothing quite like ending the day with one, some or all the activities listed above with a cool beverage on the canal dock watching a sunset that would rival any in this land! Go see for yourself...my explanation cannot do it justice! Just know that you will be experiencing a small slice of Heaven if you decide to do so.
