About James U. Wright

This is our South Carolina home. We live in the midwest and come to Fripp Island every chance we get.

Why James U. Wright chose Fripp Island

We choose this house because of its close proximity to the Cabana Club. Our children and grandchildren can walk to their and still come home easily when tired or hungry. Also we are just minutes from the beach and the marina. HOWEVER NOTHING IS VERY FAR AWAY ON FRIPP ISLAND. Also the close proximity to the Activity / Nature center was a huge bonus for us when the children were younger.

What makes this house unique

Close to all of the resorts amenities and still very quite and private. Home is just steps to the Cabana Club pool complex, Camp Fripp, Wardell's Landing and many other Fripp Island Amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home made our vacation a success. It had all of the necessary components for a family to wind down and spend quality time together. The home is located in an excellent location on the island and we enjoyed being so close to all the activities that are offered on Fripp Island. The owner was great and assisted us with all of our questions and needs in regards to our stay. I highly recommend the Express Rest as a location to take your family to make great memories and to enjoy the beauty of Fripp Island. Thanks

Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay while we explored the island. The house was very clean and well organized and maintained, a dream come true. Everything was just as they said it would be. Close enough to the pools and activity center that we could visit them as often as we wanted, well as visiting the beaches daily. The island is a perfect place to get away from the day to day hubbub of working. I can't wait to come back for another stay.

Perfect family vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

So happy with our family vacation at this beautiful home. Location on the island is perfect! A quick walk or golf cart ride to swimming pools at the Cabana Club and fun adventures at the Activity Center. Beach and playground are easily accessible.

Details within this rental were not overlooked. Kitchen was stocked with items to make you feel at home. Living room has books, puzzles and games to make family time easy. Bikes and beach toys provided entertainment. Additionally, NEW appliances in the kitchen and laundry! The property was well maintained and very clean. Owners provided excellent customer service and rental was easy and efficient.

We will return to this wonderful home and Fripp Island in the future. HIGHLY recommended for your rental property.

Family friendly, charming island/beach rental.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived for our family vacation in October to find a spacious, clean and well-equipped home on this charming island. This four bedroom, three bath rental is within walking distance to the pool/cabana club and nature center. Owners provide many extras like golf carts to get around the island.

We enjoyed early morning walks with bird sightings including a bald eagle, egrets, wood storks and blue birds.

Since the weather was not really for the beach, we also enjoyed trips into the nearby and quaint city of Beaufort.

We also enjoyed cooking delicious meals in a well-stocked kitchen. Plenty of kitchen tools, dishes and spices are on hand. The fridge, oven and microwave as well as the washer/dryer appliances are new.

The owners of this rental have put together a family friendly environment with a heart for those who are visiting. I highly recommend this island/beach rental!

Gorgeous Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves coming to this property. We have booked this home on several occasions and it never fails to impress us. The owners are obviously on top of the maintenance of the property and are continuously looking for ways to improve it. We noticed this year that there were brand new appliances in the kitchen and a new washer & dryer for laundry. Also new for 2017 was a 6 person golf cart that allowed us to get around the island as a group. We have yet to find anything about this property we don't like. It is close to the cabana club pool, playgrounds and activity center which worked well for our kids. Of course, nothing on Fripp Island is a great distance from anything else but those favorite destinations.

We can't wait to break free and return to our family's favorite vacation destination!
