Fripp Island Resort's policy on amenity cards for 2013 allows our guests to use the tennis facilities, the golf courses, the pools, rent golf carts and water crafts and use the restaurants on the island. Each guest over the age of 12 must purchase and have in their possession an amenity card to use the resort facilities. As property owners, we must pay full membership fees to the Resort to enable our guests to purchase amenity cards.

We include two complimentary amenity cards for 7 night rentals, but, if additional amenity cards are needed for your party, they must be paid for at the time you send your rental agreement and reservation deposit.

We are Jim, Lee and Breland Foster from Greenville, South Carolina. Our daughter, Breland, had her first beach experience on Fripp at the age of 18 months. Lee first started visiting Fripp, when she was 8 years old, on vacations with her family. The island was much less established during that time to the degree that she remembers riding horses on the beach with her sister and cousins! Since that time, Lee has visited, on occasion, with college friends from Furman. Jim also began visiting Fripp earlier in his life, during his college years at USC, and afterwards in his young adult years. Fripp has been a part of our lives for a long time and we hope it continues to bring us peace and to nurture our souls!
We chose Fripp Island as our vacation home location because it is a beautiful low country setting that has a natural, quiet, noncommercial and unhurried atmosphere. We love the uncrowded and quiet beach the most. It is also fascinating to watch the beach change throughout the seasons and years because, as a barrier island, it changes frequently! We also enjoy the beautiful golf courses, the naturalist programs and the other amenities the Club offers. Most of all, we have a lot of fun with our 'Fripp Friends', who are families that also own condos in our complex, from Columbia, SC, Atlanta, Ga, Laurens, SC, Greenville, SC, Ohio, etc. that we only see at Fripp when we happen to be visiting at the same time!
We chose to buy a condo in Phase III of the Capt. John Fripp villas because it is practically beach front and provides a beautiful courtyard where our daughter can play with friends and we can visit old friends and new! We recently (2012) bought another condo in this complex that is an oceanfront 4BR/4BA unit (VRBO #398399). We also like the centralized location and walking distance access to the Tennis Club, the Beach Club, the Olympic Pool, the Fitness Center, the Adult Pool, the Sandbar, the Food Court and to the Fripp Ship!
