Watch the dolphins frolic and the shrimp boats sailing in the distance from our oceanfront - beachfront villa! We have just finished, as of Feb 2015, a major renovation project which includes a new state of the art Carrier Coastal Edition heating and air conditioning system, a new stainless steel refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher as well as 2 new flat screen TVs. Add to that a new ceiling and a fresh coat of paint from top to bottom and you're talking about heaven at the beach! And, for 2016 we have just added a new Serta Perfect Sleeper queen size mattress set to our oceanfront bedroom!
Welcome to the beautiful, private island paradise known as Fripp Island. With three and one-half miles of pristine, unspoiled beaches that offer sand dollars, seashells, hermit crabs, and starfish galore, Fripp Island is the perfect place to leave your worries behind! This 3000 acre gated resort is host to such diverse wildlife as deer, herons, pelicans, osprey, egrets, alligators, and occasional loggerhead turtles. Fripp's stunning natural beauty is evident all around and it is obvious why Hollywood chose to film 'Forrest Gump,' 'The Jungle Book,' and 'The Prince of Tides' on Fripp Island!
Besides its uncrowded beautiful beaches, the island hosts a unique variety of amenities. For the avid golfer, Fripp offers two exceptionally beautiful and challenging courses. One was designed by George Cobb and features spectacular oceanfront views (the 18th hole is located just steps away), while the other was designed by PGA champion Davis Love III.
Fisherman can spend their time along the meandering tidal creeks catching abundant fish, shrimp, and blue crabs. For the shopper, there are numerous shops and boutiques on the island offering everything from casual wear and souvenirs to grocery items.
Guests have a choice of 5 different restaurants on the island (The Ocean Point Grill is located across the lane). As our guests, 2 amenity membership cards are included in the price as are all taxes and cleaning fees - NO HIDDEN CHARGES! There are numerous swimming pools on the island (one of them heated year round) that overlook the ocean. One of these is just steps away!
There are 8 soft and 2 hard surface tennis courts for your enjoyment as well as jogging, bike and roller blade trails, and scenic nature paths. You can also rent boats, jet skis, kayaks, golf carts, bikes, mopeds, or book a seat on one of the regularly scheduled excursion boats for dolphin watching, shelling, and exploring!

Originally from Annapolis, MD we first visited Fripp Island after seeing the movie Forrest Gump and finding out that it was filmed here. We immediately fell in love with the pristine beauty of Fripp as well as the abundant wildlife that lives on the island and returned to buy a house several months later. We live here full time now and wake up everyday feeling like the luckiest couple alive!
Steven & Lynn Herron purchased this condo in 2000
We bought our lovely condo on Fripp Island a couple of years after we bought our house here and have been renting it to visitors ever since. We now have lots of guests from all over the U.S. that continue to come back to Fripp and rent our condo year after year!
The views of the Atlantic ocean from our condo are simply stunning and we still come over whenever there aren't any guests to just sit outside and watch the dolphins swimming around and the pelicans flying up and down the beach. Once you experience this you'll be hooked forever!
Dear Steven and Lynn,
There is no place on earth like your home here on this beautiful, mercy island! Thank you so much for the way you keep the property in pristine condition and thank you for sharing it with us!
We so enjoyed this exquisite villa last year - but this year...God blessed us with a large window of brilliant, sunny weather EVERY singe day despite the weatherman's prediction!!
Thanks for providing the little blue beach chairs - our best fun was simply sitting ocean-side and enjoying the waves as they endlessly washed over us morning and evening!
We are aready planning forward for next year's visit! God bless you and make His face to shine upon you.
P.S. After 7 days in Paradise, we talk a little slower now! We are thankful for the impartation of peace we receive by sitting at the ocean absorbing the sunshine! Thanks for the memory - Thanks a milion. Many blessings to you and yours.
"Thank you for sharing your condo with us! We hate to leave - but we will return!" Renee & Bill Lovell
Steven and Lynn, your condo is just as you say - pitch perfect. That view is priceless. It makes the stay seem even longer because you are always looking at the ocean. I could hardly sleep for just wanting to jump up and look out the window at it. The very comfy Murphy bed is a brilliant/convenient way to maximize space and worked great for us. Your condo is so charming, well-kept and well appointed. Our family loved the gazebo swings for read-outlouds at dawn and dusk. We saw dolphins as we walked the sandbar (just out our front door!) at low tide on our first day and they were not 30 feet from us. Loved being able to walk to the pool and beach in a few minutes. To cap off the whole magical week - we went to the beach at sunset and got to witness a loggerhead turtle nest inventory and watch five little guys who had not made it with their crew yet to the sea get a hearty send-off from the crowd rooting for them. I am already looking at your calendar for some weekends during the fall or winter and as well as next summer and have told many friends about you. It was such a lovely, effortless experience for all of us. Your condo, Oasis, is well-named and it was bonus to deal with such a lovely couple!
My sister and I have had a great week! As always, we loved our time on Fripp! It is such a beautiful spot - especially the view from your condo! Time for fun, relaxation, and exploring! Thank you for sharing your condo with us again!

My husband and I just spent two frustrating and disappointing weeks in this villa. We were not told that major roof repairs would be going on; we were not able to use the patio because of scaffolding and other equipment plus debris constantly falling, plus the noise most of the day. The unit needs a good cleaning, plus attention to the electrical system; fuses blew continually. The kitchen was missing some basic utensils. The owner suggested that he could let us have a free week sometime when he had a cancellation, if we could travel at the last minute. (We live 1300 miles away. ). All in all, a disappointing stay, not the relaxing vacation we hoped for.
Greatly enjoyed our first trip to Fripp Island! We already cannot wait until our next trip back. The condo was excellent and the view was amazing. A vacation we will never forget!
Although visiting in January wasn't ideal for enjoying the beach the Oasis was excellent! Amazing views and the Adirondack chairs on the common landings were perfect for reading and enjoying the ocean sounds. This was one of the best equipped condos we have stayed in. Loved the comfy couch! It is a mix of updated and dated.....new appliances, flatscreen tvs, fresh paint......just dated wallpaper in kitchen and bath. We would visit again and would recommend to friends.
