About the property

Oceanfront Condo, 1 Bedroom , 1.5 Baths, couples or singles retreat

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:

Living Area Features:

-Ship-like water views from every seat

-Open floor plan, vaulted ceiling

-Queen size sleeper sofa

-Dining area overlooks ocean

-Listen to the surf while watching your favorite shows

Master Bedroom and Bath Features:

-Queen bed with pillowtop mattress and high thread count linens

-Double night tables and reading lamps

-New remodeled spa-like bathroom with oversized walk-in shower and furniture-style vanity

-hair dryer & towels

Kitchen Features:

-Completely new kitchen with new appliances

-All upgraded cabinets and countertops

-Fully equipped with services for four (Pick up the freshest seafood available from the shrimp boats that dock just minutes from the island)

-coffee maker, toaster, blender, garbage disposal

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.

Wonderful stay, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time on Fripp in this lovely, well appointed condo. The ocean view is everything in the description, as is the rest of the condo. The kitchen is new and the appliances work well. There is no grocery store unless you go off the island quite a way, so do your shopping before you get there. You will need everything, including little things like pepper. My husband was surprised by this, I was not. So just a heads up in case you would be.

We visited in January thanks to my husband's work schedule. Even though we had a crazy dip in temp and a snowstorm where the entire island lost power, we never felt abandoned or isolated. (The power was off only for an hour, but it was nighttime) The staff who takes care of the property were very good, knocking on doors and generally 'taking care of things.'

In light of this, I wished I would have entered my cell number instead of my home phone in the info section when we rented. I entered the home number as a reflex and during the storm the owner was trying to call to check if things were ok. At the same time I was wishing I could contact her to assure here things were fine.

Cell reception is good on the island in our experience. The wifi in the condo works well. There is an elevator to get you to the third floor where the condo is located. There really are dolphins off the balcony when the tide is right. My husband is a birder and was very happy to park himself on the deck with his scope and bird as the sun rose, or set. Or was high in the sky. The bed is comfortable.

The decor is lovely as well. Rent this place. You won't be sorry even if you get snowed in!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lisa, for your generous review. I try to keep s & p, a few basic spices and sugar in the cabinet, but it often runs low when I'm not there, so thanks to you, I will be sure it's really stocked when I leave this time. Sorry about the extremely unusual weather during your stay - I hope you and Allan can visit again when it's warm. I'm seeing an Osprey fly over as I write this...thanks for being the best guests!

Amazing condo with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo offered everything we expected and more. We were looking for a "get up and drink coffee looking at the ocean" kind of place and this was definitely it. We were right on the water. Bonus was the incredible dolphin shows every day! The condo is immaculate, updated, decorated nicely, and well-equipped. The owner left great information on the best shopping and restaurants in the area. This was our first trip to Fripp Island and we really loved it. Thanks for a lovely week of rest and relaxation! We'll definitely be back!

Incredibly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been here this week and the place has been wonderful. The views are simply breathtaking from the sofa and balcony! The owner, Jackie, provided details about beaches, restaurants and stores and she did a great job with everything from the reservation to check-out. You will not be disappointed with this little condo. Ideal for couples.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were there for 4 days. Next year we are coming back for a week! Love being so close to water and the ocean sound. Dolphins everywhere! The 3 mi beach is a great walking beach.

Highly recommend. It is isolated which we loved. Beaufort is about 20+ miles inland. We did venture In for the Airshow featuring the Blue Angels. Peaceful and serene.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sitting in the living room gazing out the slider at the dolphins swimming by, it’s easy to imagine that you’re on a cruise ship. If you tire of just relaxing with the view, there’s always the 3.5 mile beach and the walking/bike trails of nearby Hunting island. It’s also a great base for day trips to Charleston, Savannah and Hilton Head. And, importantly, the condo is neat and clean – and the elevator certainly makes things a lot easier.
