We have shared beach front houses on Fripp Island on two occasions and each time was pleased with the accommodations and easy access to the beach. Grandchildren loved the beach and enjoyed the activities center. They spotted deer and alligators on golf cart rides, enjoyed flying kites, and had good times at the pools. Homes rentals seem to include a golf cart which makes exploring the island a fun time activity.
Both golf courses were fun to play. Restaurants are so-so, and you have to get off the island to get a wider selection. It is frustrating to have to buy amenity cards to access golf, restaurants, etc. We are already paying an exorbitant rental fee and the additional charge seems inappropriate when we are desirous of using their services.
Harry's Catering Service does a fantastic job at a reasonable price. He works with you on menu choices and delivers everything promptly at the desired time. Highly recommended.
The turtle patrol acts like a bunch of Nazi's--ordering people where to stand, refusing to allow pictures of eggs that were destroyed by crabs, and not responding to simple questions--they, for the most part had a condescending attitude towards vacationers and acted like we were going to stomp on the turtles or take them home for pets. Meanwhile, they march all around the nests as they hatch, relocate turtle eggs, handle the hatchlings, and act like super Ninja turtles saving the world.
