We have been coming to Fripp for almost ten years and love our time there EVERY year! The island is getting more crowded each summer, and not all rentals are the same. However, we always regret when our time at Fripp comes to an end. The shelling boat is a great family experience. We have watched the dolphins swim at... More

Just stayed one week at this property. It is rated Gold and I asked for Gold or Platinum when I booked. the location is great, beach walk and pool just steps from the back door, but the property is in need of lots of maintenance. The deck was dirty, the furniture on the deck was plastic, the furniture inside is... More

After stumbling upon Fripp Island while researching possible locations for our family summer vacation, we booked a home near the marina through vrbo.com. The home in which we stayed was lovely and had the most amazing views of the tidal marsh (especially at sunset). It included amenity cards for 2 adults and a use of a golf cart--both things I...

I have been coming to Fripp since the late 1970s with fantastic memories. Unfortunately, it appears Fripp's standards have changed and not for the good. The food was terrible and over priced. The house was unclean, filled with roaches, a black widow and brown recluse spider. My daughter has flea bites all over her body from walking outside on the... More

I was 9 years old the first time I came to Fripp and it was wonderful. We just left from our family vacation and I'm sad to say we will never go back. The rental house was unclean, the people were rude, the service was poor and over priced. I have wonderful memories of this Island and hoped my daughter... More

My family has been going to Fripp every summer for 16 years. I thought that the kids would get tired of it when they hit the teen years, but it never happened. This summer there where 5 of us. We always stay in a beach front house and walk miles on the beach. It is so quiet. Up at 8:00,... More

We rented a beach house with my family. It was highly recommended we purchase the ammenity cards so we did. At $50.00 per card it was a huge waste of money. We were never asked for more than one of our cards for a party of 10. My husband played golf each day and the courses were very scenic and... More

Recently we rented on Fripp & one evening had dinner reservations at the Marina. My Father, who lives locally in the Beaufort area and rarely gets out due to health issues was able to join us only to be denied entrance to the restaurant because of no guest amenity card. Our family, of 15, had to leave & make new... More
