Low Cost for Paradise Found - Where Comfort Meets the Beach!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

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!

Peaceful and a nature lover's dream!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and well equipped. Unlike many rentals, the furniture was the quality I'd buy for my own home, rather than the rickety wicker stuff you often see in beach houses. Loved sitting on the back porch watching two Little Green Herons tending their nest (birds galore) , along with the deer visitors. Having the golf cart was a godsend, and the closeby neighborhood pool was great. Only small downside was the guest bathroom compared to the large and lovely master bath. There's a house being constructed next door, which was unfortunate, but it really didn't hinder our stay and we were out & about most of their workday. Overall, a wonderful getaway!!

My mom and I enjoyed our stay immensely! Anything you could possibly need is at the house. We took golf cart rides, sat on screened porch and just relaxed. We had daily visits from numerous deer and an alligator swam past most days. If you want relaxation and peace, you must stay here! We will be back! Thank you!

Charming and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

It's a very pretty home. Nicely furnished, clean, kitchen has loads of pots, pans, dishes, glasses, etc. There are tons of bikes, from small child to adult, to choose from and the golf cart is convenient to explore the island or get to the beach if you prefer not to walk. Very relaxing.

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.
