Great for small family

  • 5 of 5

We brought our two children (9 and 8) and our lab to Fripp for a 4 day trip over spring break. This condo was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was nicely renovated and the seating area was tidy and clean. The renter did not offer amenity cards or a golf cart so that would be a major consideration for a longer stay.

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

What could be better? A lovely efficient condo, fully equipped, within a very short walk down to the beach and across the road to a walk across the marsh. And if that is not enough enough, a little patio to enjoy grilling while watching the pool. Lots of light inside, small but working kitchen, and all the other comforts of a home on the beach. Would be good for long as well as short stays.

Island Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Great place! We had the best time and are looking forward to staying again. Clean, and they have everything you need. The pool is just steps away and the ocean maybe 50 yards.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great villa, steps from nice quiet pool and beach. Everything you need for a few days vacation, easy to book, plenty of room, clean, furnished perfectly, cute bit of an ocean view from master's balcony. Rented with two teenage daughters for Mother's Day, had a blast, would rent again.

Unexpected inconvenience

  • 2 of 5

I have been visiting Fripp Island for 27 years. My husband, children and myself have been coming for the past 12 years. In the past, we have stayed in a beach house, sunsuite or a villa. We have rented several different villas in the Captain John Fripp Villa complex but this year was the first time renting this villa. The villa was clean upon arrival and was accurately described as far as the villa itself. However, the owners failed to tell me over the phone or email that there would be NO amenity cards available for this villa . I assumed we would pick them up from the office when we arrived. Upon arrival, I was told that there were no cards with this villa because the owners weren't "resort members" and the registration/amenity card office will NOT let you purchase the cards on your own. This was a HUGE inconvenience for our entire family. We have three children over the age of 12, which means each of them are required to have an amenity card, as well as my husband and myself. If you don't have an amenity card, you basically can't do anything or "get in" anywhere on the island except for the beach! An amenity card is required to go to the olympic size pool, purchase anything in the pizza restaurant, get in the cabana pool, purchase anything from the sandbar, rent bicycles, golf carts, mopeds, umbrellas, or chairs. So we weren't able to do any of this all week.

I can remember a time when there was no such thing as an "amenity card" and you could do anything and go anywhere on the island. I felt the need to post this so future renters would know since the owners don't mention anything about it. If we had known this, we wouldn't have rented this villa. Perhaps this villa is more suitable for someone interested in only going to the beach during their stay at Fripp.
