What a great stay on fripp.

  • 5 of 5

The boardwalk to the beach is right across the street. So it makes for a really easy walk to the beach. The golf cart provided help to get around the island with ease. The house was very clean and accommodating. Patricia was easy to work with. Our family would definitely use this house again.

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights with my wife, 4 sons & daughters-in-law & granddaughter. We had a blast.The house is perfect for relaxing with good company and good food (the kitchen has every cooking essential) in a very relaxed setting. View of ocean from screened-in porch is very nice. Golf cart allowed for fun, short drives to the beach and my granddaughter loved the rides.

Owner very accommodating.

The house is beautifully designed with indoor and outdoor living space. Beautiful beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well designed for multiple families with 4 sitting areas. Very well equipped. Just across from the beach, which is flat and great for children. We especially enjoyed spending time on the screened porch. There is even a sand pit and swing area. Deer were bedded down all around the yard. So many things to do for everyone!! The owner was very responsive to our questions. Great location- we can't wait to go back!

Great place, great area!

  • 5 of 5

House has plenty of very livable space with plenty of amenties and privacy! Very tastefully decorated and designed to enhance your beach experience.

The area has very low volume traffic with plenty to see making the dusk cruise in the provided golf cart a must! I'm still amazed to be able to walk along the beach and have no one within a half mile.

If you want peace, privacy, and relaxation, this is the place.

Easy access to water sports with abundant wildlife to view.

I look forward to a return visit!

Family getaway

  • 3 of 5

My family spent the week at By The Sea this summer and had a wonderful time at Fripp! The house fit our needs for a large family. The kitchen had lots of space with two tables! The rooms are divided off and have doors shutting them off to the main area which was good for sleeping kids!! Everything that is listed on the description was there but if you are planning on using the crib be aware it is very old and had slots loose. We had to fix it several times so I would bring a pack in play if needed. In general the house could use a more thorough cleaning especially on the kitchen high shelves. Lights needed to be replaced along with some updating on the deck. The house is a short distance from the beach and had a very close path leading there which my kids loved.

Nature's bounty for your enjoyment on a pristine beach. We love the bike paths, walking and shelling on the beach and especially all the water activities. There are 2 easy and convenient boat ramps. There is wildlife galore to enjoy although some of them do not seem very wild!!!

And then to change gears, enjoy a beverage at the beachside or poolside bars and listen to the live bands as they entertain.
