Deer Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to your home-away-from-home at incredible Fripp Island - a private gated community perfect for a wonderful family retreat or private quiet time alone. Enjoy three-and-one-half miles of pristine uncrowded beach, wildlife sanctuaries, bike paths, and nature walks. Fripp is located about 20 minutes from the quaint historic town of Beaufort, 60 miles to Savannah, and 90 miles to Charleston.

You will enjoy the comfort of our three-bedroom, two-bath home in the private area of Deer Lake including WIFI, a fully-equipped kitchen with a Keurig coffee maker, large dining area, gas fireplace for cool nights, jacuzzi tub and separate shower in master. King-size bed in master, two guest rooms each with queen-size beds, 300 count linens and very comfortable beds. 6 beach bikes to cruise the nature paths or use the 4 passenger golf cart which is included during your stay!

Deer Lake has their own private pool and children's playground just steps from your front door. Sip coffee in the morning on the front porch watching the deer in the front yard and eat dinner on the screened back porch overlooking private, wooded, nature-filled yard and creek.

Spend your days at the pool, beach, or just relaxing and exploring the island on your golf cart or bikes. You will soon see why Fripp Island area has been chosen to film so many movies, such as Forrest Gump, Prince of Tides, and Junglebook.

Fripp Island is also the chosen home of author Pat Conroy, famous for writing one of my favorite books, Beach Music. July through October is nesting time for the turtles on the beach. If you come during this time be sure to follow directions on visiting the sites.

About The Owner

I am a pediatric travel nurse. This is my primary home and I rent it out while I am working in different states. I love coming home to Fripp, there's just no place like it! I take a lot of pride in making my home/your vacation home a comfortable, relaxing place that you will enjoy and want to return year after year!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Fripp Island

One visit will let you know why people come back year after year...southern moss in the trees, deer that become part of your family, and a beach that offers something new every day.

What makes this house unique

I love that I have so many families that return every year and have built so many memories. I know that they must love my home as much as I do because after 10 years of renting it out, I can never tell that anyone has been there!

Perfect Fripp Location

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed on Fripp for over 13 years and I can honestly say this is a wonderful home! The private neighborhood brings even more tranquility to a relaxing week. The home is managed by Fripp Island Resort and everything was perfect. The arrival cleaning and fresh linens were impeccable. Easy access to private pool and quiet street. Don't pass up a chance to stay at this property. Completely worth it!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much...I do love my home and love the location! Thanks for taking such good care of it while you were there. However, the resort does not manage my home..I manage my home and have a wonderful housekeeper who does a great job! Glad you had a safe trip home and hope you will come back again! Debbie

Relaxing spot.

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely, relaxing week on Fripp Island and the greater Beaufort area. The house was very comfortable and nicely furnished. The housekeeper had missed a couple of areas she should have covered before we arrived like the screened-in room where we spent a lot of time. We had to clean chairs and table because they were covered in pollen and dust as was the floor (couldn't go out there barefoot), and the living room front windows, when we opened them, were loaded with cobwebs and dirt, but otherwise everything was great. The beaches were wonderful, and having a cart to get around in was great. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Winter 2015

This house lived up to all expectations and maybe even more. The pictures were just as advertised, recent, no unpleasant surprises! I love to cook and the kitchen was fully stocked, even to spices being available. Plenty of work space, important for any cook. I also sew. The table in the front was perfect to set up my sewing machine. (Yes, I don't travel lightly!). Plenty of walking paths. I am not sure we covered them all in the two months we were a guest. On one of our walks, we saw 18 deer! It's a game preserve so wildlife is abundant. The furniture, including the bed, was as comfortable as being in your own home. We experienced no problems of any kind. The neighbors were friendly. I just loved it and hated to leave! I am sure we will visit again!! I was uneasy, as we have two dogs, and when you rent a place that is "pet friendly", you always hold your breath that other pet owners respect other people's property and you don't walk into something that has been rode hard and put away wet. This was certainly not the case. I highly recommend this rental. Debbie responsed quickly to any questions.

Another great time at Fripp

  • 5 of 5

This is our 13th year at Fripp and don’t want to go anywhere else. The last 5yrs have been in this house and plan to go many more (already booked for next year). We love the quiet private neighborhood and pool. Debbie is always easily accessible and always taken care of any issues quickly (which have only been minor). House is well equipped and comfortable as well as the golf cart and bikes are a major plus. The beach is never crowded and always an adventure finding a wide variety of shells and wildlife.

Loved Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Debbie, the house was lovely, comfortable, and very clean! We had everything we needed. Fripp Island is a beautiful place, and I just looooove seeing the deer! Beach is not shelly... is clean and great for walking. The neighborhood Pool is a BIG plus!! Also appreciate the use of golfcart and bikes. I thank you for allowing my chihuahua babies to stay. I respect owner's homes and do not allow them on furniture. I crated them at night, and when we were gone (they actually like their crate). We loved our stay, and hope to return again sometime soon!

Paradise Found and Comfort Says it All!

  • 4 of 5

We will depart "Paradise" on Fripp Island on Sat. 6 Sept 14 and we have had a great stay in Debbie's beautiful home. Our vacation home was so very comfortable, modern, clean and very well appointed., The Family Room furniture is very comfortable. The Master Bed (we only used this one bedroom) was extremely comfortable. The Golf Cart was a total plus also and we were able to get to know the entire island. Debbie was extremely helpful providing all the information we would require to get to know the island and surrounding areas. We were very pleased with our choice. We hope to return again as soon as we can. The beach is very close by and we used the Golf Cart to get to the quickest location. I am a "Walker" and enjoyed my daily 5 plus miles on the paved sidewalks. The neighborhood pool is very close to the home. I would recommend this home to my family and friends. Thank you Debbie.
