Guestbook comments from the owner

Our week at the Southern Belle 1 was one of magic! My three children talk about Fripp and the “cool” house all of the time. From the amazing golf carts and the many bikes to the home amenities we couldn’t have been happier. And the island- OH MY GOSH beauty! Each morning we started count of the deer and “Allee-gators” to see who had the most sighting for that day. And there must be some scientific evidence that not getting in a car for one week lowers the stress level greatly, I know it did for me! Plus, driving the hummer was super fun so anytime we needed an extra ingredient for dinner or more sunscreen all of the adults were fighting over who could go to the market.

I enjoyed the scenery, the beaches, the tiny little markets and shops and would recommend this island and property to anyone looking to relax in true style. I can close my eyes right now and bring myself back to sitting on the gorgeous front porch with my coffee listening to nature reading a book while my family snoozed in. Heaven. And I can’t forget to mention golf- my husband played 3 times and raved about the courses.

We plan to make a new tradition of Spring Break on Fripp and will look to Mike and his family each time. His level of communication was unsurpassed, even calling a few times early in the week to make sure we found everything we needed and wanted to be sure we were taken care of in every way possible.

Mike, the picture of the gold cart is staged, obviously my 6 year old isn’t driving but I thought it was so cute I wanted to share.

We really did enjoy everything about the stay and when we start planning next year I will be in touch. THANKS

Roaches!! Bad Management!

  • 1 of 5
6-23,13 ROACHES!! aka palmetto bugs. No sleep first night there. I was afraid they would crawl on little children. Found in bowl of fresh cut melon placed on counter. One fell from ceiling fan unto daughters head while sitting on toilet. She was not amused and actually left the home. Everyone else wanted to, but had nowhere to go. I captured 3 roaches, of which owner said were the only ones. HA! Sprayer sent out and said they had problems previously, but owner denied. They were everywhere! They were running behind stoves, floors, walls, ceilings. 3 year old kept running to me screaming about the giant bugs. The owner suggested we were being irrational because we were from Ohio and Ohioans are not use to ROACHES! I told him no, we did not have roaches and I didn’t want to take them home with us. We spent one whole day going through our clothes, shaking them and placing in plastic bags and tying up. After leaving a bad review on another website, he called my home and told me he hoped I had nightmares about roaches the rest of my life, insisted I was psychotic and called me an idiot. Home is beautiful, but many items rundown or not working upon arrival (Microwave, dishwasher, most bikes, ceiling fan, sewage smell, clanging pipes.) Garbage had not been removed for several weeks prior to our arrival. Contacted maintenance man, who said he was not a garbage man and asked if we had a truck. He suggested we take garbage to Frogmore landfill which is off the island and maybe a 20-30 minute drive. Wrote owner letter, he later tried to switch the blame to us and suggested we broke a DR chair (one of many items already damaged when we arrived). I told him I didn’t know we had to list everything broken or not working. This would have taken an entire notebook. When I asked for some compensation for our ruined vacation, he offered a $50 gift card. NOT!!!! We expected a wonderful home for our yearly get together on Fripp. What a joke! Ruined Family Vacation! Renters BEWARE! You will receive 50 pgs of fines for do's/don'ts with 1 whole day of cleanup you need to perform that is not included in maid clean up. Fripp is our yearly family vacation. Have never experienced anything like this! We have never left any owner a bad review. This is a beautiful home with bad management! It seems as though the owner collects the rent , but doesn’t put anything back into the home. I would never recommend this home to anyone unless you want to live with roaches.

Owner's Response: We are appalled by Lillian’s complaints and inaccuracies. Our concern is that her ultimate goal is to try and get a free vacation from us and we will not stand for people like this! We can clarify every one of her comments.
The Southern Belle I is a beautiful vacation home and considered one of the premier vacation rentals on the east coast. We take a lot of pride in our home and work very hard to maintain it. This home has been rented out for the past seven years to many nice, respectful renters from all of the country, many of which return year-after-year.
She exaggerates about cockroaches being everywhere. What she saw are a few, tiny Palmetto bugs. After she called us, we called our Pest Control company, whom we have a full service contract with, and they arrived the next morning. This is a quote of their findings:
“Mr. Deluca, we received a call on 17 June to go to your property Fiddlers for pest control for roaches. When we got there the guest had 3 dead Smokey brown cockroaches (aka. water bugs or palmetto bugs) under a glass. The tech inspected the property and found no other signs of activity. The tech went ahead and retreated the property as a precaution. - Neill (Phillip ) Operations Manager-Ehrlich / Jones. Furthermore, the home is professionally clean every week.
We issue a 4-page document, not 50, about all the nice restaurants in the area. We include 2 pages of things to take care of in our special home so that when the next guests arrive, the house is in perfect condition, just like they found it.
She complained the microwave and ceiling fan weren’t working. We brought in a brand new microwave within 4 hours and installed a brand new ceiling fan in one week. The other 6 worked and the a/c kept the house cool and comfortable. She believe the dishwasher wasn’t working too, but she was just using the wrong cycle.
She states a bug fell on her daughter’s head from the ceiling fan while in the bathroom. We don’t have ceiling fans in the bathrooms! There are no clanging pipes or sewage smells. This is an $800,000 upscale home with pristine management, Mr. Carl his wife, and Bernie who have been with us for 7 years.
We found a broken dining room chair which she said nothing about.
In conclusion, anybody reading our reviews will see what she is trying to do. The reviews long before and long after her visit reflect nothing other than great times in our beautiful home.

Just the Best Home ! We Love the Southern Belle

  • 5 of 5
Our annual vacation at Fripp Island is the highlight of our year! Getting to stay in your beautiful homes over the years have made our stays even more memorable! The Southern Belle I this summer was spacious enough for our entire family...the furnishings are sensational...not only comfortable but unique! The yellow hummer caught the eyes of everyone we passed...the Club car held a larger group to visit the ocean...but, wait, it only gets better! The family pictures made on the Surrey with the Fringe On Top are the envy of everyone! We can't leave out the daily Deer sightings! The children loved feeding our scraps to them...our two-year-old Great Grandson squealed with delight at their daily visits! The screened porch on the back with the paddle fan had to be one of my most favorite quiet, peaceful and relaxing! We're already talking about next year! Thank you for allowing us to "pretend" your house was ours for one unforgettable week! No one does VACATION like the DeLucas!
