Newly remodeled, this Tennis Villa has the perfect Fripp location. It offers peace and tranquility while at the same time having easy access to all of Fripp's activities. Located in the center of the island, it is next to the tennis courts and is directly across the street from the Beach Club, Olympic pool, restaurant, food court, and shopping. The best part of the beach and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean are just a few more steps beyond the Beach Club. If you just want to relax and enjoy Fripp's unspoiled nature and wildlife, it can be found outside your private and secluded deck. Here you can also enjoy beautiful sunsets with canal and marsh views.

The first floor of the villa includes a spacious living area with newly tiled floors, a deck that over looks the marsh and canal, a fully stocked kitchen with new cabinets and granite counter tops, a dining room and full bath. The living room is equipped with a TV, stereo, DVD/VCR player and also includes a queen sleeper sofa. The master bedroom, also located on the first floor, has a king size bed, large closets, and its own TV.

The large upstairs loft bedroom sleeps four. It has a king size bed and two twins. This bedroom also has its own private bath, ample closet space and TV. The 2 bedroom Tennis Villas are the largest 2 bedroom condos/villas on Fripp.

Average Villa For The Area

  • 2 of 5

Fripp is great and the beaches are nice. This Villa is average for the area. All of the Villas in my experience in this area are run down and need updating. This Villa had cracks in the walls, a hole was punched in a wall in one of the bedrooms (luckily I did not get blamed for it), the kitchen was dirty, the coffee maker has never been cleaned, and the chairs in the living room were flimsy and uncomfortable, and some of the dishes were dirty in the cupboard (we found smeared butter on some of the plates). The linens were dirty (I found hair when pulling the comforter back on the bed).

The cleaning lady is lazy and sends pictures to the owner to claim your security deposit. My security deposit was dinged for some sand left in the villa. Hello, this is a beach villa! Do not expect to get your entire security deposit back.

Owner's Response: First of all, I take pride in our villa, If there were any issues when you checked in you should have contacted me or my Property Mannager and it would have been taken care of immediately! I cannot correct a problem that I am not aware of. In the past 3 years we have put in new tile flooring in the downstairs, new dining table, all new bedding upstairs, and a completely updated kitchen with new cabinets and granite counter tops. My Property Manager has been with me over 15 years and does an excellent job. She goes out of her way to handle any situation that may arise during your stay. There was so much sand left in the villa that additional help had to be brought in to get the villa cleaned in time for our next renters. There was sand on all of the seat cushions at the dining table, piles of sand all over the downstairs floor and the shower was so full of sand that the drain would have clogged up if it had gotten in it. The cleaning crew is used to dealing with sand at the villa, but this was much more than they have ever dealt with. I did keep $50.00 of your deposit in order to pay the additional help that was needed to get the villa cleaned in time. I have refunded THE FULL SECURITY DEPOSIT TO EVERYONE the past 2 years. This is the first time I have kept any portion of the Security Deposit!

Can't say enough...

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Fripp since I was a little girl, and this year marks 34 years worth of visits. Since being old enough to plan my own visits, for my little family and other friends, I have never booked a stay in a tennis villa before, and honestly always avoided them, because I didn't think they were spacious enough, or the idea of a "villa" meant we had to be quiet all the time. I was completely wrong. This villa was not only spacious for 2 families, but our loud small children didn't bother the neighbors (I asked) :). The porch was great to let the kids run around on without worrying about them getting hurt, or escaping. The deer come right up to the back of the villa each morning and evening, and the view across the marsh is breathtaking at times. The spiral staircase is a little tricky for those who have children too small to navigate, but on the move---we pushed the love seat in front of them, and it was a quick fix! The beach is directly across the street, as well as a pool, so it is a great location for all ages. I will definitely be staying in the tennis villas again, they are especially great for long weekends. The owner is easy and quick to work with, and we had no problems booking our stay, or during the stay itself. I highly recommend this villa!

Spacious and very clean

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a birthday celebration. Everything was arranged on short notice and the owners were very helpful and friendly.

The property was very large and comfortable. We had everything we needed to prepare meals and the washer/ dryer were convenient. It was extremely neat and clean. One thing to note is that you'll need to bring your own dish/dishwasher soap which we hadn't planned on, but we're able to purchase at the marina store. And of course, you will need to bring your own laundry detergent.

Loved the location. This is the second time I have stayed at the villas and love the marsh view and sound of the wildlife in the morning.

Overall, it was a great stay and I would stay again.

Fantastic trip to Fripp

  • 5 of 5

We chose this villa based on location and we weren't disappointed. Directly across the street from the beach and pool and centrally located on the island. The pictures are very accurate. For the most part the villa was clean and well maintained. This was our first trip to Fripp, and we loved our vacation. I would definitely return and would stay again at this villa.

Awesome Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Fripp Island and my sons first trip to the beach. We had a wonderful time. We loved the villa. It is located in a great location. Nancy the property manager was a pleasure! I am looking so forward to going back and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else on the island!

Thank you for a great stay!

Great Location - Very Roomy

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Fripp several times, but never stayed at the Tennis Villas. I loved the central location and the quiet! You're right across the street from the beach and the Beach Club - which contains a food court. Very Handy! We typically stay across at the John Fripp Villas - which I love also - but the tennis villa proved to be much less congested and more peaceful. The villa is very roomy and has a great lay-out. It can sleep several with the 2 king beds and 2 twins. The place was very well taken care of and clean. Lynn was extremely easy to work with, and very responsive to questions and e-mails. You know how important this is if you've ever had a bad rental experience. I would highly recommend this villa and this owner for a trip to Fripp.
