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!

Lovely home on a lovely Island with gorgeous beaches!

Beautiful home on quiet cul-de-sac with lagoon in back. Kitchen was fully stocked, bikes in garage, and golf cart.No crowds in March and weather was very nice. Debbie, the owner, was great to work with and veery responsive. I highly recommend!

Dated and worn out. I guess you get what you pay for.

  • 2 of 5

Overall the house simply was not clean. Even though it is a pet friendly house, I feel the cleaning lady does not do a good job. The glass around the front door and both sliding glass doors still had obvious dog licks/smudges on them. Lots of pet hair in all the bedrooms. The carpets were badly stained and need replaced. Both chairs in the living area are badly stained and need replaced. Both showers need to be replaced. They work appropriately but both are very old and just look bad. The hall bath shower is tiny. Any sized adult would have difficulty showering in it. It worked ok for my 15 and 12 year old. The AC did keep the house comfortable and the large TV in the living area was nice when we crashed at night. I will not inquire about returning the this property. Overall I was disappointed with the property.

Owner's Response: Well...this is the first bad review I think I have ever had. If you feel you get what you pay for then you need to spend a lot more if you are wanting something that is to "your" standards. Families have always loved my home and many have been returning for years. I am surprised at the comments about the cleaning. My housekeeper usually does a great job. However, during the summer it does get quite busy and it is possible that something might have unfortunately been overlooked, but I feel pretty sure the house was clean and well furnished for "most" people's needs. If there was a problem you should have let me known and I could have had her come back to correct it. However, I would not send her back for a smudged small glass pane at the front door. I agree that evidently my house is not a good fit for you and agree you would be more comfortable in another "rental".

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!
