Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in Paradise Found!! The view and the use of our own "Private Pool" It was amazing how the pool was not crowded at all. Especially when you compare it to other pools in the area that were overflowing with people. We are actually planning on coming back this fall sometime in October and were wondering if you offered weekend rates? Thank you again for opening your condo up for our family this summer. I hope all is well with you and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

I have family on Fripp and have been coming my entire life, so I won't go on about how amazing Fripp is. Instead, I will talk about how amazing this property is. The private pool is amazing, and watching dolphins every day from the balcony just priceless. Absolutely a wonderful location, and Natalie is very responsive and accommodating! We may have family on the island, but hopefully Paradise Found will be where we stay from now on whenever we visit wonderful Fripp!

This was an amazing trip and my first time to Fripp. This property location is unbelievable. Woke up to ocean views every morning and every night I could not resist standing and watching the moon over the ocean from the balcony. I quite literally could throw a rock into the ocean from my balcony. The rooms are nice decorated and clean and the place is simply care free and easy.
