The best family location on Fripp Island. A stroll past the hammocks in the backyard and down our own boardwalk leads you to our own private dock with sitting area. Pick your pleasure: fishing, crabbing, shrimping, kayaking or boating right in your backyard. Bring your boat and ride down the inlet and turn left to the Atlantic ocean or turn right and explore the scenic marshes and enjoy the wildlife.
Stroll out our winding driveway and you are at a playground with basketball court and volleyball. Also out our front door is the Davis Love III signature golf course with all its scenic views. We are directly across from the clubhouse/pro shop/driving range for a golfers paradise. This 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom home has 2000 sq ft of comfortable living space. The 1st floor features an open floor plan. Our fully equipped kitchen is open to the living and dining areas creating a comfortable and spacious gathering place. An adjoining screened porch with rockers and ceiling fans overlooks the scenic inlet. The first floor also features a spacious bedroom with 2 full size beds and a full bathroom. Upstairs features a beautiful master suite with a king size bed, walk-in closet, elegant full bathroom with a seperate tub and shower and double vanity. Adjoining the master suite are sliding doors leading to a spacious screened porch where you can enjoy a sunrise view of the inlet or evening retreat under the moon and stars as you listen to the ocean. The 2nd upper bedroom features 2 full sized beds, a nautical/beach decor and a full bath. Also located on the 2nd floor is a bonus room with a sleeper sofa. Conveniently located on the 2nd floor is a laundry room with washer and dryer.
We feel our home is the perfect location for all visitors to Fripp Island. In addition to our waterfront access, we are conveniently located to most of Fripp's favorite hot spots. Located just around the corner is the Veranda beach/cabana club. This area features a 1 ft wading pool, 3 ft children's pool, and 5 ft heated pool with a sand and playground area.
While sunbathing enjoy a spectacular view of Skull inlet, Pritcher's Island, and the Atlantic Ocean. Also nearby is the Fripp Marina, Boat House Restaurant and marina store. Our home is also close to the center island which showcases 8 clay tennis courts, Olympic and adult pools, and a food court. Our home now has WI-FI wireless internet access!
What a perfect place to stay on Fripp! We were here for a week, and loved coming home to this sunny house after trips to the beach or pool (on the golf cart that is included with the rental) or the playground and basketball courts, just a few yards away. The house is thoughtfully equipped with most everything we needed and more. (Beach towels are provided in addition to bath towels, and most anything that we thought of--a basketball, fishing nets, boogie boards--were right there.) The house feels both spacious and cozy, really welcoming. We had to ask Marty a few questions, and he got back to us right away and was always helpful. We can't wait to visit again!
We stayed at this beach home for 9 nights in June 2013.. This was our 2nd trip to Fripp and was by far our favorite. Bob and Marty's home was like a home away from home. The home, located overlooking the ocean creek, is in the perfect location. One of the islands two golf courses as well as a playground were conveniently located across the street, beaches and pools were a short golf cart, scooter, or bike ride away. The dock came in handy for our kayak launching and fishing or just sitting and reading a book. There were 8 of us sleeping in the home and we had PLENTY of room to spread out and have our "own space" - yet at the same time the living/dining area provided a comfortable place for all of us (as well as "day" friends who lived in neighboring Beaufort) to congregate together and enjoy each others company in the evenings. The two screened porches, with rocking chairs and outdoor furniture, were PERFECT for relaxing and the views were an added bonus . The kitchen was very well stocked with all cooking essentials and even had various spices included. The home had a vast supply of linen, towels and even beach towels as well as outdoor toys. Ceiling fans were in all the bedrooms, living area and even the main level porch. The home was exceptionally clean and very well maintained. We almost hate to share the good news as we'd like to keep this home as our "little secret"... Thanks Bob and Marty for sharing your piece of heaven on earth with us. We will be back.
Me and my husband, daughter, son-in-law and 7 grandchildren stayed at this wonderful home and thoroughly enjoyed it! There was PLENTY of room for all of us. The house looks just like the pictures and the area is fantastic! The golf cart that is provided with the house was great. We travelled all over the island with it. Marty and Bob provide lots of linens and beach towels and a wonderfully stocked kitchen. Would definitely come back!
Great house for the family vacation, with dock if you bring/rent a boat. The island is great to start. The house is very well equipped and clean. Cookware/towels/everything - so check with the owners before you load up the kitchen sink. There are things you won't need. Great location. Quick easy golf cart ride to one of the best beach spots and close to amenities too. Garage has appropriate gear, and I noted the house is slightly secluded with trees and has more space in between it and neighbors than do others near it. Upper and lower back porches are screened for bug free cocktails. I sat out there during a rain storm and strummed on an acoustic. - Good place owned by very good people. If the island and the house size fits you, go for it.
Bob and Marty went above and beyond to accomodate me and my family. They responded so quickly by email and phone while trying to make reservations. Then upon our arrival to the house there was a watermelon and bottle of wine for us on the dining room table. The location of the house is perfect with the golf course across the street, playground just a short walk away, private dock which allowed us private access to kayak in and out of inlet, pools, tennis courts, and beach are all a short golf cart trip away. The interior of the house is absolutely beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed spending our mornings sipping our coffee on the back screened in porch while watching the wildlife. We look forward to many more family vacations here.
The two times we have rented this property, my family has has thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is perfect for families with small children as the playground is a very short walk away, and it is conveniently located to beach access and pools via a short golf cart ride. My children and husband had a great time fishing and crabbing off the dock. The house is nicely decorated and the beds are cozy and comfy. The owners have thought of everything for a perfect beach vacation by having a supply of boogey boards and beach toys in the garage. For the golf enthusiasts, the Ocean Creek Clubhouse is a short walk from your front door. Marty and Bob, the owners, have been wonderful to work with. They promptly return phone calls and and are very accomodating. I highly recommend this property for your next vacation.
