PRISTINE OCEANFRONT PARADISE - 2 FREE AMENITY CARDS!

Fripp Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Watch the dolphins frolic and the shrimp boats sailing in the distance from our oceanfront - beachfront villa!

Welcome to the beautiful, private island paradise known as Fripp Island. With three and one-half miles of pristine, unspoiled beaches that offer sand dollars, seashells, hermit crabs, and starfish galore, Fripp Island is the perfect place to leave your worries behind! This 3000-acre gated resort is host to such diverse wildlife as deer, herons, pelicans, osprey, egrets, alligators, and occasional loggerhead turtles. Fripp's stunning natural beauty is evident all around and it is obvious why Hollywood chose to film 'Forrest Gump,' 'The Jungle Book,' and 'The Prince of Tides' on Fripp Island.

Besides its uncrowded beautiful beaches, the island hosts a unique variety of amenities. For the avid golfer, Fripp offers two exceptionally beautiful and challenging courses. One was designed by George Cobb and features spectacular oceanfront views (the 18th hole is located just steps away), while the other was designed by PGA champion Davis Love III.

Fisherman can spend their time along the meandering tidal creeks catching abundant fish, shrimp, and blue crabs.

For the shopper, there are numerous shops and boutiques on the island offering everything from casual wear and souvenirs to grocery items.

Guests have a choice of 5 different restaurants on the island (The Ocean Point Grill is located across the lane). As our guests, 2 amenity membership cards are included in the price as are all taxes and cleaning fees - NO HIDDEN CHARGES! There are numerous swimming pools on the island (one of them heated year round) that overlook the ocean. One of these is just steps away. There are 8 soft and 2 hard surface tennis courts for your enjoyment as well as jogging, bike and roller blade trails, and scenic nature paths. You can also rent boats, jet skis, kayaks, golf carts, bikes, mopeds, or book a seat on one of the regularly scheduled excursion boats for dolphin watching, shelling, and exploring!

Come stay with us in our charming, first-floor villa with palm trees and stunning ocean views from your bedroom and living room. Our condo was rated 'Excellent' by the Fripp Island Resort. The breakfast nook overlooks a beautifully landscaped courtyard featuring charcoal grills and tables surrounded by banana plants and hibiscus. Your villa features a large, comfortable living room and dining room area, fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast nook, a large bedroom with queen-sized bed, bathroom, patio, and parking garage. It also has a fold-down, full-sized, Murphy bed in the living room.

For the comfort of our guests, our unit is 'No Smoking' and 'No Pets'.

Fripp Island is located just 20 minutes from historic Beaufort, 45 minutes from Hilton Head, one hour from Savannah, and one and one-half hours from Charleston for those of you who love horse-drawn carriage tours, unique shopping, historic sightseeing, and all types of dining - from casual to elegant!

Another perfect vacation!

Dear Steven and Lynn,
There is no place on earth like your home here on this beautiful, mercy island! Thank you so much for the way you keep the property in pristine condition and thank you for sharing it with us!
We so enjoyed this exquisite villa last year - but this year...God blessed us with a large window of brilliant, sunny weather EVERY singe day despite the weatherman's prediction!!
Thanks for providing the little blue beach chairs - our best fun was simply sitting ocean-side and enjoying the waves as they endlessly washed over us morning and evening!
We are aready planning forward for next year's visit! God bless you and make His face to shine upon you.

P.S. After 7 days in Paradise, we talk a little slower now! We are thankful for the impartation of peace we receive by sitting at the ocean absorbing the sunshine! Thanks for the memory - Thanks a milion. Many blessings to you and yours.

Needs updating

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
I have just returned from this unit....many issues. The first thing I see upon entering is a BOX FAN sitting in the living room floor. Then we realize the note on the thermostat says to keep the condo at 78 degrees (a might warm for SC). The bathroom light and the bedroom lights both flickered when they were turned on. I was concerned there was a short and a fire hazard. The range was a very old model with an attached microwave. The microwave on the range did not work at all. There was a small counter model microwave there but if you used it for any length of time it cut itself off due to being too hot. I was somewhat afraid to use it. The seal on the refrigerator obviously did not work well as you could feel cool air around the door. This condo is in dire need of updating. The kitchen especially needs updating.

I had specifically asked if it was ocean front when I rented it. It was definitely ocean front, but I was NOT told that there is no beach for a good portion of the day. The tides come all the way in to the seawall so there is little to no beach for most of the day (depending on low tide times).
Owner's Response: First, we find it truly sad that this woman would come to Fripp Island which is a beautiful, pristine island paradise and choose to spend her vacation inspecting refrigerator seals and complaining about a floor fan in the living room! Also, have you read the other 56 or so reviews - some from people who keep coming back over and over again? If what this woman said was true, why would they keep coming back? They could just rent a condo from someone else!

To address her "concerns":
1 - Stanley Steamer put the floor fan in the living room to make sure that the freshly cleaned rugs would be dry by the time she checked in.
2 - The note above the thermostat says to put the temperature at 78 degrees when you LEAVE to conserve energy between renters.
3 - In the 12 years that we have owned our condo the lights have never "flickered" and still don't.
4 - We went out and bought a brand new microwave oven while waiting for a replacement knob for the regular microwave that had been accidentally broken by the previous renter. It is technically impossible for a microwave to overheat since there is no heating element in a microwave! Microwave ovens will always turn off when the digital timer reaches "0".
5 - The refrigerator door seal is fine - all that is required is for the person using the refrigerator to be competent enough to shut the door all the way!
6 - Fripp Island has 2 low tides which are each 6 hours long and 2 high tides everyday. Not only is there a large beach at low tide but there are also sand islands that pop up out of the water that you can walk out to with your beach chairs and umbrellas. The worst case scenario during a high tide is that you have to walk down the beach about 50 yards to where the beach sticks out further.
Hope this helps!

We needed a relaxing time

We needed a relaxing time away and this was great! We went kayaking and saw a pod of dolphins. Went biking and watched how they catch crabs, enjoyed counting the deer at night! Ate at some wonderful seafood restaurants: Dockside and Sweetgrass. Heading home but always hate to leave the beach. Thanks for sharing your 'Oasis' with us.

We found lots of shells, had a dolphin show each day and got a lot of incredible pictures. We hate to leave, but will definitely be back again.
