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 island, three and a half miles long, designated as a nature preserve.

Our smoke-free one bedroom third floor villa sits directly on the ocean where you can watch dolphins frolic and pelicans fly at eye level from your living room and balcony. The living area offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and provides an additional side window for panoramas of Fripp Inlet and Hunting Island as well as overlooking the private pool.

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 views from every seat

-Open floor plan, vaulted ceiling

-Queen size sleeper sofa, desk area & dining area

-Listen to the surf while watching your favorite DVD/TV/VHS

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:

-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. 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.

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.

This is my idea of heaven on earth. I enjoy this condo so much, I'm looking forward to returning for my 3rd stay. I literally cannot wait to open the door again to this cozy and comfortable retreat. I always feel safe and serene there. The very first thing I always do is go out on the balcony and spend a few minutes just taking it all in - the salt air, the panoramic view that goes for miles and the rhythmic roar of the Atlantic. Fabulous! I've learned to watch for the kingfisher out on the rocks in front and the heron who stands sentry nearby. It's well worth waking up early to catch the gorgeous sunrise and you'll want to return for the amazing painted skies of late evening. The kitchen is well-equipped and I don't often venture out for meals, but it's a short and lovely drive into Beaufort. I can highly recommend the shrimp & grits at Saltus, which is right on the water.

Simply relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how roomy the condo actually is. The rooms are bigger than they appear in the pictures. Comfortable and very clean. The half bath came in quite handy! The views are stunning, the Island itself is private, secure and lush. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here to a person traveling alone. At night we would open the door to the balcony, and the windows of the bedroom for the pleasant breeze and the ocean sounds. We were able to watch dolphin and pelicans fishing, and the deer would visit in the evening. We toured Savannah, Beaufort and Hunting Island, found a few off-the-beaten restaurants and historical places. If you want razzle dazzle, lights and action, this is not the place for you. However, if you want a clean, secure, peaceful and homey location, this is definitely it! Jackie is a dear to work with and supplies as much information as you need or want. All the comforts of home in this condo, without the annoyance of an alarm clock! We had a wonderful, restful time and will definitely come back when we can.

sooooo relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful, the scenery is breath taking, the beach is peaceful and the wildlife is adorble. We were so relaxed and just enjoyed our time sitting on the beach, hanging out by the pool and visiting the local restaurants. The weather was picture perfect. Jackie really makes sure that you have everything you need or helps with any information. I hope we can make the journey back again. Liked it so much more than Florida.
