Our three bedroom house is located on a large wooded lot, mid-island, just a 4 minute golf cart ride to the main beach, pools, restaurants, fitness center and tennis courts. Our house has everything you need to enjoy a fabulous vacation at the beach. No need to bring towels, bikes, beach toys – they are all included! In addition to the three bedrooms, there is a sleeper sofa in the living room and one on the screened in porch.
We have recently updated the home with new hardwood floors and a deck off of the screened in porch. The bedrooms and the living room all have TVs and DVD players, the kitchen is fully stocked and equipped with cooking utensils and appliances and a gas grill is located on the deck. We have furnished and stocked the house so our guests will feel at home and will have everything they need to enjoy a great Fripp vacation. We have very reliable property managers that will be available throughout your stay to address any needs that you may have.
We have just added a new wooden deck off of the screened in porch to add additional space for relaxing outside. The large corner, wooded lot affords plenty of privacy while just a short walk, bicycle ride or golf cart ride to the center island beaches, tennis, dining and fitness center and a 4-5 minute ride to the championship golf courses. The kitchen has been updated with new cabinets and tile counter tops and adjoins a large dining room. New hardwood floors have been added in the main living areas. No expense has been spared in furnishing this house to create a quaint island atmosphere. Fripp Island is a 3000 acre private, charming, gated island community perched along the Atlantic Ocean, just across from Hilton Head Island and 19 miles south of historic Beaufort, South Carolina. Fripp has over three miles of pristine, classic South Carolina beaches. Fripp Island Resort offers island pools, tennis, restaurants and golf courses.
If golf is your passion, the Ocean Point Golf Links course sports several ocean holes and a great track with newly remodeled fairways. The second course, Ocean Creek Golf Course, was designed by Davis Love III and was recently noted in Golf Magazine as a 'Top Ten New Course'. Hilton Head Island with its wide selection of courses is only a 45 minute drive. If tennis is your game, the Fripp Island Racquet Club has 10 tennis courts and pros available to run clinics or supervise league play.
In addition to relaxing at the beach, golf and tennis, other Fripp activities include, hiking, fishing, wildlife sanctuaries, biking, kayaking, deep-sea fishing and deer, dolphin and alligator watching. Sailors, anglers or folks hoping for a midnight cruise will find a charter at the Fripp Island Marina. There is plenty to do for youngsters and teens alike. The Cabana Club offers 'kid friendly' pools and 'parent friendly' relaxation while the teen center provides activities and fun for teens.
Off island excursions may include a trip to Hunting Island State Park to visit its beaches or its historic lighthouse built in 1875. Savannah and Charleston are about one hour away and offer great restaurants, shopping and historic and cultural sites and events.
Welcome to our guestbook. We have just purchased this home and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we already have. We purchased it for our family to enjoy, but living in Indiana and with busy teenagers, we will not get to enjoy it as much as we would like right now. We wish we could travel to Fripp every weekend! We don't want the home to sit empty so we are offering it for rent. I hope you will enjoy your stay at our home on Fripp Island.
It was our first stay at Fripp for my husband and myself along with my parents...we enjoyed the house so much! Loved having everything there. We also got a lot of use out of the golf cart. My husband and I even talked about coming back in March sometime to catch a break from our TN winters. We will all definitely be back next year!
This house had everything we needed for a great stay! Felt like home. I discovered a new author from the library. The only problem we encountered was handled prompt and professional! Cant say enough good about this property!
This house was so clean and neat and wonderfully decorated! My daughter, husband and I really enjoyed lounging in the hammock chairs in the evenings and one evening during a nice heavy rain storm. The screened in porch was great, no need to worry about mosquitoes. We bought groceries and cooked most of our meals and everything we needed to cook and eat was provided in the kitchen. The master bedroom bed was very comfy and easy to sleep on, and I usually have a hard time sleeping in different beds (especially at hotels!)
The shower with the bench seat was a nice surprise as well.
We never really needed anything from the owner or any of the property managers, so I can't comment much about that aspect, but it was very easy to communicate with Ms. Cutshaw to make reservations and handle the transactions involved in renting.
This is a great family house with a lovely layout and plenty of room, I would highly recommend you book it for your trip!
And- if you have never been to Fripp - please go visit! One trip and my husband and I agreed we would never go back to the more commercial beaches, like Myrtle. The natural beauty of Fripp is so relaxing, there is nothing like it!
Our family of 4 had a great week on Fripp (our 2nd year now) and we returned home to Atlanta sun-drenched and relaxed. We had such a great time and absolutely loved this home. The owners have really thought of everything (golf cart, bikes, coolers for the beach, chairs, towels, etc) and made us feel like we were guests of theirs, rather than some places we've stayed that really look and feel like a rental, without any love put into it. We will definitely rent this place again, possibly for 2 weeks if we can. One week seems to go by so fast on Fripp.
We highly recommend this home for those looking for a good location (although there really isn't a bad location on Fripp) that is close to the beach, close to centrally located activities and close to several beach access points. The quiet cul-de-sac behind the home is ideal for kids who want to ride their bikes with little parental supervision...Thank you to the family for sharing their home with us - we really loved it!
We've vacationed at Fripp for many years and have enjoyed staying at a variety of homes. This one met all our needs at a great price! The description and photos are accurate. The den was great for the family to hang out in, master bedroom and bath are very nice and the porch was perfect for early morning coffee or relaxing in the afternoon on a rainy day. The hammock chairs were awesome! The golf cart and grill were in great condition--which can sometimes be a concern with some homes. It is in a quiet location with a neighborhood feel. This was our first experience renting through this site and we will definitely use it again. The owner was available to answer questions and flexible to make changes if needed. This is a comfortable home to stay in for your vacation on the island. I would definitely recommend it.
We've stayed on Fripp many times, and this house was the best equipped and best value we've visited. Airy and tastefully decorated (the photos don't entirely do it justice). Great layout, so our party of four adults and two kids could spread out and not annoy each other. The screened-in porch was a highlight (specially the hanging chairs), as was the enormous comfy sofa in the living room. Kitchen so well stocked it even included juicer, electric hand mixer, toaster oven, cool box, aluminum foil, condiments, etc., and everything was sparkling clean.
We didn't originally think the location was ideal (bordering Tarpon Boulevard), but in practice this was not a problem as the porch faces the opposite direction, and 'main road' on Fripp is a relative term! The kids adored heading off to the beach on the golf cart, and the owners were immensely responsive in sorting out a small problem we had. Bikes, beach chairs, towels and other beach toys were provided.
Fripp Island is a private island located 19 miles from historic Beaufort, South Carolina, and about one hour from Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina. The island resort has 2 championship golf courses, tennis courts, 5 pools, restaurants and enough activities to keep everyone in the family busy. Beaufort, Savannah and Charleston are beautiful historic cities with fine dining, great restaurants and cultural and historic sites and events. Fripp is the perfect island to do nothing but relax on the beach or stay busy golfing, playing tennis or partaking in the many planned island events. Fripp is the perfect island vacation!
Golf: 2 championship golf courses within a 5 minute golf cart ride from the house.
