We had the whole family gathered here from all over the world to celebrate our grandfather's 90th birthday. The home was perfect in providing a private, secluded and peaceful getaway for the whole family. There was plenty to do on the island to entertain all members of the family whose ages ranged from 3 years to 90 years old (water sports, tennis, golf, restaurants), but we rarely had any desire to leave the house!
Firstly, the location is gorgeous and right on the sandy beach. It felt like you had your own private beach because it was always empty (the house is away from main beach access points that the other resort tourists will use).
Secondly, the open layout is perfect for families or multiple couples. There is ample indoor and outdoor space to relax and dine, beautiful ocean views from the floor to 2-story ceiling windows, a massive deck for sunbathing, plus a cozy balcony patio should you feel like you don't have enough outdoor space! The home is decorated tastefully with a proper sea villa feel. We spent most of our time grilling on the BBQ, playing cards on the deck, and playing DJ with the Sonos sound system. There are 4 comfortable bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms, plus a kids room with bunk beds. Kitchen is fully equipped and was easy to cook all our meals at home.
We stayed during a lovely, sunny week in May 2016, which helped us avoid the high humidity and crowds of peak summer season. We had a stress-free vacation there, and on the rare occasion we did have an issue, Fripp Island Resort management staff was super responsive to fix it. Highly recommend!
