Most relaxing weekend ever
The weekend was a girls 50th birthday celebration. We loved the house. Everything was very clean, warm and welcoming. The rooms were bright and airy, beds were comfortable, and the living room couches were so very cozy. There was ample space for the 8 of us. It was just a short walk to a beautiful white sand beach, that we nearly had all to ourselves. The owner was very gracious in her prompt response to questions. We can't wait to come back. Thank you Maria!
Family get together
Very nice house and comfortable.
Beautiful property, hope to stay again soon...
Unfortunately this home was not well kept at all, frankly it was filthy. We couldn't use the washing machine because the of the mold and filth. There was food splatter on kitchen walls, along will all the walls being dirty and kitchen cabinet doors dirty. Paint/drywall hanging from areas of the ceilings from apparent water damage, curtain rods hanging off wall, screens with holes, moldy shower curtains, terrible stains in carpet etc.
Very disappointing because the pictures really did look nice. This house can accommodate a large family. Nice area of homes, Fripp Island was very pretty and the proximity to the beach is great. This house needs some love and sprucing up!
I am sorry that the house was not cleaned well before your arrival. I have deep cleaned the house and had the carpets steam cleaned since your stay (Dec. 2017). Repairs have also been made. Everything you listed has been repaired. We are very proud of our home and apologize for your disappointment.
Please know that we do everything we can to keep our home nice and take care of problems as quickly as we can if we are aware of them. Please look at my mostly 5 star reviews if you are interested in renting from us. Your satisfaction is most important to us and we respond immediately to any issues you may have during your stay.
Beautiful and roomy.
We had 15 people with this stay. House is very roomy. Very quite are. Desks with setting , we spent a lot of time on them. Being so close to the beach everyone loves it. We plan on booking the house again in the future.
We had a blast!!!
We loved our stay on Fripp Island! 😍The home was everything we needed and more! It had plenty of room for our large group. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for cooking. Marla Gatley was great to respond quickly. She was very sweet and accommodating! Honestly, the only bad thing about our stay was it wasn't long enough!! We are already making plans to go back!
