Overview

Fripp Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Fun, Bright, Casual Beach House with a great view of Blue Heron Lake and all the wildlife at the backdoor! It is a great spot to unwind with family and friends. Our home is very family friendly.

Our three bedroom home is located on a double lot that offers a wonderful view of Blue Heron Lake from our large, gated deck. It is about a four minute golf cart ride to the main beach, island club, pools and tennis courts. Our house has everything needed to enjoy a beach stay including the use of the golf cart. We also have a sleeper sofa in the alcove off the living room.

The home has recently been updated to include hardwood floors throughout, new appliances, decking, outdoor eating area, dining table and chairs and living room furniture. We have all the cooking gear needed for great seafood dinners or casual grilled meals.

Guests may purchase amenity cards from us for access all the Island amenities.

About Cathy Pinto

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.

Cathy Pinto purchased this cottage in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Perfect place to feel close to nature

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time. Loved hanging out on the deck overlooking the lake. And the deer visitors! There are so many fun things to do in the area and it's also a great place to chill. We hope to go back next year for sure.

Everything about property is great

  • 5 of 5

The location and view are fantastic. If you love wildlife this is the house for you. The whole experience was great and we can't wait to get back. Don't underestimate what a benefit the cart is. You won't know until you get there!!! Cathy was great.

Otter House

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice time at the otter house. As other reviewers have indicated the house is pretty basic. What is lacked in glamour it made up with the quiet and peaceful location that allows you to get away from it all. The golf cart was a fantastic feature. It made getting to and from the beach a snap and was out vehicle for gator watching. By the way, hole #13 on the golf course is a great place to see some big ones. Our kids enjoyed the stay. It was also close enough to Savannah for a nice day trip. We would recommend the Otter House to others.

Fripp Island Trip

  • 4 of 5

Fripp island is a beautiful place to visit. The house we rented was fine inside but outside has not been maintained in a long time. The golf cart did not work and this was supposed to be part of the package. No discount was given.Owner did have cart picked up for repairs. For the cost of the cleaning fee they need to have someone clean up the decks and outside furniture. It was non usuable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The unusually cold February weather caused the golf cart batteries to discharge. The cart was immediately picked up and repaired by Sutcliff Carts (they maintain the cart on a regular basis). The cart was purchased in 2013. Unfortunately, I'd asked them to leave a cart for use and that did not happen. The golf cart is offered as a free amenity. I do not charge a security deposit or pet fees and the property is maintained to the best of my ability. The decks are blown off by the monthly yard service company. The decks are surrounded by many, many oak and palm trees which is the beauty of Fripp! February was unusually cold and windy which may have contributed to the debris on the deck. I did not immediately offer a refund to this guest, but I am sending them a partial refund. I have reliable cleaning people (5 plus years) and if problems come up during a stay I do my best to immediately address them all while trying to offer an affordable vacation opportunity.
