What a great property this is. My family loved the house set up/floor plan and the property has been remodeled from top to bottom. Huge TV in living room and best sunset views on the island. Owner (Bob) is very helpful and responds in a timely manner. We will staying at this property again in the future!!!
Nice clean house with a wonderful view of the sunset.
The house is very nice and conveniently located. We did two marina boat tours: the sunset cruise, which was amazing with Captain Chuck, and the shelling cruise, also great fun. This house had the best view we have had in the 25 years we've been going to Fripp.
This house is comfortable, beautifully decorated and offers truly breathtaking views. We never tired of watching the sun set over the marsh every evening. The balconies/porches bring the outside in and we spent quite a bit on time on all four! The screened in first floor porch is just lovely any time of the day and is a great place for morning coffee. And the upstairs porch on the second floor provided a wonderful spot to take in the panoramic view of the marsh. The club cards also allowed us to enjoy the Activity Center (it's amazing for kids) and all the other amenities on Fripp. And the golf cart is much faster than the ones you rent on the Island. Our family members were jealous that we has so much speed in comparison! We plan to come back! Thank you Bob!
House has great views of marsh and easy access to marina as well as short cart ride to Beach Club. Be prepared for several steps as this house is elevated and bedrooms are on top floor. Overall good rental.

Great time, great view and great house! Weather was a little cooler than expected but how could you not enjoy a stay on Fripp Island? The time went so quickly that we did not do everything we wanted to so we will have to come back. A good excuse to return.

What a wonderful stay at the Smoakhouse ! It is true-the sunsets are the best on the island. Your home had everything we needed to make us comfortable. The golf cart was nice, but we enjoyed riding the bikes , especially on the beach at low tide. Felt like kids again !! The seafood was great and for a night when you don't feel like cooking, the shrimp at Boondocks are terrific. We are true nature lovers and loved the deer, heron and other wildlife. Thanks for sharing you house - we'll be back.

We had a glorious week at Fripp . The Smoakhouse is the perfect location for those breathtaking sunsets over that beautiful marsh! Perfect weather. Taste of Beaufort and river cruise on the Prince of Tides with Capt. Dick was too fun! We will return. Thanks Bob

Thanks for helping us out in letting us have your house. The Ridds

We had a fantastic week at the Smoakhouse. It was our first visit to Fripp Island, and we were very impressed. We loved the marsh view, the sunsets, the deer, the location--just everything. We have rented many houses at various beaches in N. Carolina, and your house had everything we needed. Thank you!

Bob, we really enjoyed the house and the fantastic views of the marsh and sunsets. Everything worked out for us just great. We're already thinking about coming back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Fripp. It was amazing to see the Deer just sitting on the lawn like pets. They even came right up to the golf cart a time or two. The best part was the Sunset Cruise. The most beautiful scenery- I highly recommend it. Both of my children enjoyed shelling on Bull Island and making Tye Dye Tee's. The Smoakhouse was fabulous for our family. It was very spacious for it's two bedrooms and had everything we could have needed- including great views of the marsh especially at sunset. Looking forward to visiting again.

We cried when we left even the husband didn't want to leave! We just spent the BEST week ever at the Smoakhouse and WOW! what else can I say! The house is perfect for our family, the accommodations are perfect, the views, the EVERYTHING! We are just hoping America's best kept secret stays that way! We want to go again before the winter weather and already want to reserve our week next year. My twins think there is no better place in the world to go. The only good thing about having to leave is my husband took over 1000 pictures and I want to develop them all! Thanks for sharing your paradise with the rest of us! We never want to go anywhere else again! Thanks for helping us build incredible memories with our twins! You can't go wrong going to Fripp and the Smoakhouse! We love it ALL! The Honeycutt's

We Just returned from another fabulous week at the Smoakhouse! Perfect weather, beautiful sunsets, and marvelous seafood from Gays! They even had local stone crab claws which we steamed and devoured. Can't wait to get back to Fripp! The Kitchells

Another wonderful stay in the Smoakhouse. We did miss Smokey the cat greeting us each morning! The shrimp were delicious and even Tropical Storm Alberto didn't keep us from having a lovely time. I only wish that we could take home the tidal river view, and the dolphins that swam near our kayaks as we paddled by.
This is our second visit to the Smoakhouse. We had family coming and going throughout a beautiful week. Fun was had by all - we biked, fished (caught flounder and whiting), golf carted, sunned, ate well, sang and laughed a lot. Thanks!
Louise & Joe Kitchell
We spent an amazing week at the Smoakhouse in April and I have to say everthing was perfect. The sunsets were absolutely incredible, and we have many photos to remember them with! We love everything about Fripp and will definitely be returning soon. We have found paradise and thank the Smoaks for sharing it with us! Louise & Joe Kitchell
We've been frequenters of Fripp Island for many years and it continues to offer a beautiful respite to the busy lives we all lead. Our stay at Bob's was a treat. I threw my yoga mat on the lower porch and my meditation blanket on the upper porch. Sharing the mornings with the egrets, deer, marshgrass, etc. was definitely soul food. My husband had success with his fishing and we both enjoyed the accommodations. I look forward to a revisit at the Smoakhouse. Bruce and Deb Ridgeway
Our family certainly enjoyed our week at the Smoak’s house on Fripp Island. We found the accommodations to be more than comfortable and Bob was a jewel to rent from. We found it had everything we needed. We enjoyed riding in the golf cart, biking the trails and walking all over the island. Fripp is rather remote and quiet. The gorgeous view from the back porches is so serene. We enjoyed eating out on the nice dining set on screened in porch. We go to a different beach place each year and this is on the top of our list.

My family and I just returned from a week at the Smoakhouse, and we couldn't be happier with our accomodations. We couldn't have asked for a better location! We were only steps from the marina which made launching a boat effortless, and had a wonderful marsh view with incredible sunsets just as promised. This home comes complete with a VERY fast golf cart which we affectionately nicknamed the 'stang. She was one of the quickest on the island. Bob Smoak was a great landlord for the week, and he made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Thanks for a great trip!!!
