Located in the heart of South Carolina's Lowcountry is the pristine and private Fripp Island. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Fripp Island is the South's best-kept secret, and North Hampton is Fripp's best location situated just 50 feet from the ocean!
The complex enjoys a private pool by the ocean and views of Ocean Point's 18th green from the front door. Located only 15 nautical miles north of Hilton Head, Fripp is a secluded private gated island, three and a half miles long, designated as a nature preserve.
Our smoke-free newly rebuilt one bedroom third floor villa sits directly on the ocean where you can watch dolphins frolic and Pelicans and Osprey fly at eye level from your living room and balcony. The open plan living area offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and provides an additional large side window for panoramas of Fripp Inlet and Hunting Island as well as overlooking the private pool. For those returning, this is the same incredible retreat it's always been, with brand new interiors, as last year we were damaged extensively by Hurricane Matthew.
Perfect for a couple's getaway, beach vacation or just a needed escape from the routine, a stay at our intimate oceanfront villa will inspire and rejuvenate. This magical retreat captures the island life and the spirit of the lowcountry. Step out onto the balcony into a world of calm. Soak in the sweeping views of the ocean by day and stargaze at night while enjoying all the comforts of home:

Relax during your stay on Fripp or choose from a variety of sporting acitivies. Walk our private 3 mile beach and observe the tide pools, the huge sandbars that stretch out into the ocean and the enchanting island birds. A perfect swimming beach with fine sand, it changes daily as the low and high tides come and go. Fripp is a sanctuary for wildlife and home to deer, dolphin, porpoise and sea turtles. Fishing is always in season. Stop by the Fripp Island Marina Ship Store, pick up a couple of sandwiches and head for one of the hot fishing or crabbing locations. Nearby Hunting Island, the jewel of the South Carolina State Parks with its 5,000 acres of natural beach and wildlife habitat, offers hiking trails, kayaking and other adventure opportunities. A Nature Center and large fishing and observation pier is located on Hunting Island - just over the Fripp Bridge.
Although it feels secluded, Fripp Island is just a short drive to some of the country's most historic sites in Beaufort, Savannah and Charleston. The charming riverfront town of Beaufort is named "favorite small Southern town" by readers of Southern Living Magazine.
A Beaufort sightseeing adventure can begin by foot, bicycle, boat or horse drawn carriage. Stroll through the waterfront historic district and admire the architecture, gallery hop, shop or dine at one of the fine restaurants which overlook the river or are located on one of the charming side streets. Many of Hollywood's finest movies have been filmed here and on Fripp Island including Forest Gump, Prince of Tides, The Big Chill, The Great Santini, and Jungle Book.
