Cozy getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great! We are no stranger to Fripp as the island is like a second home for us but needed a larger house this time as we had more family with us. Our family celebrated my parents anniversary and we all fit comfortably in the home with plenty of room to spare. The kitchen was great for all our cooking needs and the living space was very cozy. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch, where we star gazed each night. My grandmother has difficulty getting around and the first floor bed/bath along with the elevator made it much more enjoyable for her, also! Joan and Dave really add a lot of extras that make it easy to want to come back to the MarshMellow again!

Such a great time!

The house was as advertised. Joan was extremely helpful in getting us going and we all had a blast. I would definitely take advantage of the golf cart discount. Fripp Island is the best!

Beautiful home... Beautiful view.. Was perfect for our family. We loved the multiple decks and settings as each is unique and special. We enjoyed rotating the decks with our morning coffee to our evening cocktail... Watching golfers, wildlife, sunsets etc. it's also a perfect setting on a fripp as you are central to many things. Owner was very easy to work with and genuinely concerned about our having a great vacation.

Premium property.

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay here with two other families over New Year's Eve and found the home ideal for our large group.

Having rented multiple VRBO properties over the years, we can state unequivocally that this home was the most finely appointed of any we have ever rented. The proximity to the beach (a five minute walk) and the exquisite marsh view through the back windows and off the back porch kept us in a Low Country state of mind throughout our stay!

We recommend this property without hesitation and commend it to anyone requiring such size and space.

Returning Visitors...

We have rented from these owners on two different occasions and were thrilled with the houses. They are very nicely appointed and the pictures truly don't do it justice. They were very accommodating with everything from the welcome pack to the golf cart rentals. This spring break will make our 3rd visit to their properties and we are completely satisfied. These owners DO take pride in their properties and you can tell--they are not like your typical rentals!
