Plum retired as an independent contractor (East Lansing, Michigan) and Jeri retired from her 35 year career in public education, most recently as a school principal (Okemos, Michigan). Until retirement, we enjoyed Fripp during Jeri's school breaks--renting our home to guests when we were not able to be here and longing for the day when we could spend additional time at Fripp. Over the years, we have loved hearing from guests about the things they enjoyed about our villa and Fripp Island.
With retirement, we now spend winter months at Fripp and continue to enjoy sharing our 'southern home' with guests who want an upscale, beautifully furnished and well-maintained vacation home. Nearly two-thirds of our guests are returning visitors to our villa who say that they appreciate the luxury and attention to detail that we provide!
Some Extra Options You Can Consider...
As our guests, you will always enjoy the quiet beauty and peacefulness of Fripp, including the beach, two on-island golf courses, tennis courts, walking and biking paths, and many on- and off-island attractions. Our rental rate includes all linens and departure clean. South Carolina tax (11%) and optional Fripp Club amenity cards are extra.
The purchase of amenity cards entitles you to 'guest membership' in the private Fripp Club, including use of all club facilities (e.g. golf courses, restaurants, fitness center, pools, and tennis courts). Amenity cards must be reserved at least one week prior to your visit. Cost for amenity cards from Memorial through Labor Day is $50 per person per week.

About Jeri and Plummer Mifflin
When we are not at Fripp Island, we maintain a year-round home in mid-Michigan one mile from the campus of Michigan State University (Go Spartans!). Plum is a retired building contractor, and Jeri is a retired school principal. We both love splitting our "home" time between Fripp Island and Okemos, Michigan. A passion for both of us is the game of golf which we love playing together and with friends. While at Fripp, we enjoy walking Fripp's beautiful beach, socializing with friends, and exploring Beaufort's many art galleries and boutiques. Plum loves outdoor activities, including golf, surf fishing and crabbing. Jeri is an active volunteer (has worked at St. Helena Elementary School and as a volunteer in the Newhaven complex). She also enjoys participating in competitive state and 'low country' golf tournaments. We love to travel, spend time with friends, and do things with each other in retirement. We have traveled throughout Europe, Mexico, Greece, Alaska, and the Caribbean. We look forward to sharing our villa with guests during spring, summer and fall months!!!
Jeri and Plummer Mifflin purchased this Villa in 1997
Why Jeri and Plummer Mifflin chose Fripp Island
We fell in love with Fripp on our first trip to the 'Low Country' in 1997. We visited friends at their beachfront home and enjoyed shelling, kite flying, crabbing, surf fishing, golf, and more! We purchased our villa in Newhaven because we love its beautiful ocean views and friendly community spirit. The quiet laid-back "natural beauty" of Fripp captivated us on our first visit. It still enthralls us over twenty years after our first visit! When we get the urge to “get off the island,” we enjoy visiting Bluffton, Hilton Head, Savannah, and Charleston. We ALWAYS love our nearby town of Beaufort which is one of the quaintest towns in America! We enjoy so many things about Fripp--meeting friendly people from all over the U.S. and world, observing brilliant starry nights, taking beach walks together, teeing up on the first hole just across the street from our villa, and driving our golf cart (Ruby) on rides to see the island's abundant wildlife. We fell in love with Fripp on first sight and continue to love it more each year--a beautiful Audubon nature preserve featuring deer, egret, eagles, alligators, osprey, and dolphins!!! Best of all, we love the many friends we have made over the years and enjoy our reunions as we return each fall to our beautiful and secluded island paradise!
What makes this Villa unique
Guests staying at our villa will find our villa unlike 'typical' rental properties. Some unique benefits: Luxury and Quality: We maintain our villa to the luxurious standards that we want for ourselves--with upscale furnishings, artwork, and accessories--as well as focused attention to all the details that we--and our guests--wish for on a memorable trip. Special Setting and Location: Our unique location gives guests a short walk to golf, pool, beach, and dining--without ever getting in a car. With our villa facing south on the Atlantic Ocean, you will have gorgeous views of the water and wildlife! A glass of wine or cup of coffee while relaxing in our rockers mellows out even the busiest professional. Watching dolphins frolic and shrimp boats head out to sea are simple pleasures that can make your day a great one. Nearby History and Adventure: When you get the urge to leave the island for adventure outings, the unique history of the Low Country is just a short drive away. Beaufort, Savannah, Hilton Head, and Charleston provide day trip opportunities to experience culture, history, and the arts. From quiet and relaxing to educational and exciting, our location really has it all!

An awesome place to stay while vacationing.
A beautiful place to stay on Fripp. This was the second time we have stayed here and love it. The condo is very clean, feels like home, and the location can't be beat. We hope to return soon!
We have rented this beautiful condo for a number of years......it is honestly the best accommodations on Fripp Island. The memories from our annual summer trip at Fripp carry us through until the next year. The condo is gorgeous with every item you could think of needing at your fingertips. The sounds and sights of the ocean are just outside the door. The owners have thought of everything and if you need to contact them for any reason, they are totally accessible. The use of the golf cart is great because that is all the method of transportation one needs when on the island.......other than short walks to the pool and the putting green at Ocean Point. Wonderful condo, wonderful owners, wonderful memories.
We were more than pleased with our stay. It truly was a very peaceful and relaxing experience. The condo was immaculate, every amenity available. The view was perfect sitting on our patio, warm ocean breezes awaited us every day. We would definitely return.
Relaxing Stay at Fripp Island
I highly recommend visiting Fripp Island and this condo! The owners are very thoughtful, down to the decor, and easily accessible. This was extremely important because it immediately set our minds at ease and let us concentrate on our vacation. Condo was in excellent condition, beautiful views, and the golf cart (beach baby) was absolutely our life line to the many activities offered on the Island. Perfect for couples that have college age kids (or older) and seek a quiet, ultra relaxing getaway!
Here is the email I sent to the owners, I wanted to share this:
"We’ve had a great week. Found four sand dollars the very first morning and only found one other sand dollar throughout the remaining week. Found a ton of other shells, but couldn’t take most of them as I didn’t want to disrupt the crab that called that shell home! Played both golf courses, rocked the beach and the adult swimming pool, feed the deer, toured the island….what a week!
The view from your place is amazing. I can’t decide if I enjoy the mornings best….walking the low tide in search for stingrays, shells, or just the abundant life source that is Fripp Island….or the evenings, just looking up at this clear, starry night sky while the strong coastal breeze just soothes every ounce of your soul. It is truly amazing and difficult to explain if you’ve never been here, you have and you understand. It was always nice to have some drinks in the evening and when we were ready to retire it was soothing to have the Bose’s playing low while the dimmed lights made for a very, very inviting gesture to relax and close your eyes."
Will not go wrong visiting Fripp Island and staying at this very hospitable location!
Absolutely perfect condo!! Great location, with breathtaking ocean views! Sitting on the patio taking in the views with warm ocean breezes, was our favorite part of the day. Very well maintained, every amenity available. The golf cart was awesome to have to travel the island. Will definitely return!!
Wonderful villa by the ocean
We absolutely were pleased by everything this villa had to offer. It was clean, welll maintained and stocked with everything you need for a great vacation.. We particularly enjoyed our trips on the golf cart where we saw numerous deer. The beach is beautiful and the weather was perfect. This was our first trip to Fripp Island and we will return to this villa.
The beach and ocean are just steps from our villa which features incredible views from every room. Our interior is updated and luxurious with everything you need for a wonderful week. While staying at our place, you can enjoy the many activities offered on Fripp and the nearby area! Explore the island in "Ruby," our electric golf cart (included with rental) or walk and bike the beach and hiking trails. Bird watching, shelling, and reading in your private deck chairs are just a few of the relaxing activities on Fripp. Many guests also enjoy exploring nearby the quaint town of Beaufort which has been named "Best Small Town in USA" by Southern Living magazine. Savannah & Charleston are close by if you want to check out historic sights, sample southern cuisine, and visit small galleries and shops. Many of our guests enjoy visiting plantations, Fort Sumpter, the Citadel, and doing walking tours and carriage rides to learn about southern life. Our villas’s incredible ocean views invite you to pick up fresh seafood at the local fish dock (featured in the movie Forest Gump) & 'cook in'. Foodies may want to venture out and try some of the area's delicious restaurants which feature local produce, seafood, and recipes. Fripp boasts excellent tennis courts, as well as two highly rated golf courses--Ocean Point and Ocean Creek Golf Courses. As a special 'bonus', you may choose to purchase amenity cards that entitle you to 'guest membership' in the private Fripp Club & use of ALL Fripp Club facilities, including tennis, pools, and dining.
