Enjoy a relaxing and fun stay at our upscale ocean front 'southern villa!' Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a respite from a busy professional life, or a way to celebrate that special occasion, our one-bedroom villa is a perfect choice! Use of 'BEACH BABY,' our electric golf cart (new in 2014) is complimentary throughout your stay.
About Our Villa:
In addition to stunning views of the Atlantic, we offer a level of luxury and attention to detail not found in most vacation rentals! Our elegant furnishings, original artwork, and ideal location have been chosen with care and will definitely help you feel pampered and special throughout your stay.
Our living room slider door is just steps from the water and our front patio overlooks New Haven's large 'ocean viewing deck'. Our villa is conveniently located on the main level with great views of the ever-changing and beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Villa is an end unit with lots of windows and light. Sunsets and sunrises are plentiful as you relax in our comfortable rocking chairs, sipping your morning coffee or evening cocktail.
The interior of our villa is fabulously decorated in Tommy Bahama 'island style' with original artwork and high quality fabrics, furnishings and accessories. Flooring, furniture, appliances, linens, and window treatments are newly updated. The bedroom has a new Serta iComfort queen bed and luxurious quality bedding.
Our kitchen is equipped for gourmet cooks with beautiful granite counters, travertine and glass tile backsplashes, and an array of coastal serving dishes! In fact, although the Beaufort area boasts many excellent restaurants, our fully-stocked kitchen literally invites you to 'cook in.' Views of the ocean from almost every window (including the dining room), along with a beautiful outdoor grilling area, definitely tempt you to 'dine in.'
Our villa is an end unit with lots of windows and natural light, sufficient storage for your personal items, and a new Bosch washer and dryer.
We offer unlimited long distance calling and wireless internet access for guests who need or want to remain 'connected' while on vacation. We also offer new televisions in the living and bedrooms, as well as a collection of games, movies, CD's, and a BOSE stereo system with concert hall sound.
Our goal is to provide you a relaxing, stress-free vacation and ensure that you have everything you need for your 'week at the beach.' Included in our villa are many extras not typically provided in most vacation rentals (e.g. spices, beach chairs and towels, beach umbrella, extra linens, candles, laundry supplies, gourmet dishes and cookware and more)
An additional BONUS for guests: Use of our personal golf cart (affectionately known as 'Beach Baby') is included in our rental rate! This special transportation is a retail value of $350 per week and gives you a relaxing and scenic way to explore our special island paradise and to visit the many neighborhoods, beaches, and wildlife viewing areas.
About Our Location:
You will see why we fell in love with Fripp Island and our unique location when you look at the aerial photo of our complex! Located in the prestigious Ocean Point area of Fripp Island, our villa is part of The Village of New Haven and is modeled after an actual English 'seaside village'. New Haven juts into the Atlantic Ocean and is wrapped on two sides by water.
Our villa is truly 'ocean front' (not inlet view) and faces south with wonderful sunrise and sunset views. Steps from our door is a large 'ocean viewing deck' which is a great place for watching birds, dolphins, and shrimp boats, reading a good book, chatting with friends and neighbors, or just rejunvenating your spirit. Numerous walkways and seating areas throughout our complex all feature stunning ocean views.
In addition to our fabulous natural surroundings, we are located next door to the Ocean Point Pool and just across the street from the Ocean Point Golf Course and Grill. Just a short drive from our villa are five additional swimming pools, Ocean Creek Golf Course, six tennis courts, a small fitness center, and numerous public beach access areas.
Three-mile long Fripp Island is a designated 'nature sanctuary' with natural bike and walking paths and expansive views of surrounding tidal marshes, lagoons, and best of all, the Atlantic Ocean!
About The Owners:
Our names are Plummer and Jeri Mifflin. Recently celebrating 30 years of marriage, we have always loved to travel! Though we have travelled to many exciting places, (including Alaska, Europe, Mexico, the Carribean, and the Greek Islands), we knew on our very first visit to Fripp in 1997 that this island is a special paradise! We fell in love with Fripp's laid back ambiance, stunning views, natural setting, and friendly people!
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 are able to spend winter months at Fripp and enjoy continuing to share 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. 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. Cost during the 'off season' is $35 per person per week.
In summary...incredible ocean views, upscale decor, original artwork, and beautiful furnishings, combined with staying at one of the South's undiscovered and premiere vacation destinations, will make your vacation in our 'Southern Home' one to remember forever!
Special Notes: Our goal is to ensure the highest level of quality for our guests. Therefore, our villa is designed and furnished for adults and not equipped or decorated for families with young children. We rent only by the week (Sat. to Sat.) and do not allow smoking or pets. Maximum occupancy is two people.

When we are not at Fripp Island, we maintain a year-round home in mid-Michigan near the campus of Michigan State University (Go Spartans!). Plum is a retired building contractor, and Jeri is a retired school principal. We both love to travel and also enjoy spending time at our home in Okemos, Michigan. A passion for both of us is the game of golf which we avidly pursue together and with friends. While at Fripp, we enjoy walking Fripp's beautiful beach, socializing with friends, and exploring Beaufort's many galleries and boutiques. Plum loves outdoor activities, including surf fishing and crabbing. Jeri is a volunteer at St. Helena Elementary School where she loves helping fourth graders improve their reading and writing skills. She also enjoys participating in competitive state and 'low country' golf tournaments. We look forward to sharing our villa with guests during spring, summer and fall months!!!
Jeri and Plummer Mifflin purchased this villa in 1997
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 New Haven because we love its ocean views and friendly community spirit. The quiet laid-back beauty of Fripp captivated us on our first visit and enthralls us still.
We love 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 (Beach Baby) on rides to see the island's abundant wildlife.
We loved 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!
Guests staying at our villa will find our villa unlike 'typical' rental properties.
We maintain it 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 our guests wish for on a memorable vacation.
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 can see sunrises and sunsets from our front deck! A glass of wine or cup of coffee while relaxing in our rockers relaxes even the busiest professional. Watching dolphins frolic and shrimp boats head out to sea mean this is definitely life at its finest!
When we 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.
We have stayed in this condo numerous times and just completed another great stay, The owners are easy to deal with and make sure everything is perfect for your stay. The condo has everything you will need to make your stay a memorable one. Sitting on the deck early in the morning or in the evening and watching the ocean, the birds, and the dolphins can't be beat. The condo golf cart makes getting around the island a breeze. We'll be back.
I can't say enough about this beautiful condo. Immaculate! Beautiful furnishings! Comfortable! Well stocked! Amazing ocean views! Peaceful! The perfect place to heal the body, mind and spirit! We fell in love with this beautiful home the first year we stayed and fell in love all over again when we returned!
This was our third year staying in this great condo. We have never been disappointed!
The condo is immaculate, furnishings are top notch! I have never stayed in a condo so well stocked. Jeri is so easy to work with- always responding promptly. I haven't even gotten to the view- it is amazing- you are as close to the ocean as you can get! The use of "beach baby" the golf cart is a wonderful personal touch from the Mifflin's. You will definitely experience a piece of paradise in this condo.
This is a situation where we actually feel honored to have stayed in such a beautiful condo. No detail is unattended to - every single aspect of the place made it feel like home to us (or better!). We had a great time, in spite of losing a few days of sunshine to the dreariness of tropical storm Bonnie. By far, this place is the nicest rental unit we have ever seen in all of our years of travel - and certainly in the many years I have gone to Fripp. The kitchen is very well equipped - it was so nice to cook a meal and have just about every single item I needed at my fingertips! Everything is top quality too- the bed, sheets, towels, etc. made for a very comfy stay. We also greatly appreciated the use of the golf cart Beach Baby - she’s pretty peppy, by golf cart standards! - and the wonderful beach chairs and umbrella. We also had the pleasure of meeting a few of the resident neighbors while we enjoyed relaxing on the back deck area at the end of the day (before dinner) and sipping a cocktail or two and as we watched the waves crash into the rocks. Jeri was a gracious hostess from our very first contact with her - in spite of my confusion concerning the deposit. If you're looking for a place for a couple's beach get away, this is the place. Note, Fripp is a VERY family oriented resort especially once the kids are out of school but it is easy to find a secluded spot on the beach away from the family hustle and bustle and have a sense of privacy. Romantic dinners out are probably best found in downtown Beaufort (we loved Saltus Grill) rather than on the island, but fun can be found also at Johnson Creek Tavern and Shrimp Shack.
The owners thought of everything in this beautiful New Haven condo. The level of organization and attention to every detail is simply amazing. The property is immaculate and beautifully furnished. Jeri was wonderful to work with and went the extra mile to accomodate us. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Enjoy the many activities offered on Fripp and the nearby area! Explore the island in your own golf cart (included with rental) or walk and bike the beach and hiking trails.

The island 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.
