On The Beach! Oceanfront Home, Newly Renovated Fully Appointed, Screened Porch

Completely renovated winter of 2010/2011 - Superb 5 Bedroom 4 Bath oceanfront home located in a unique family setting. Our home was built to foster family reunions, accommodate multiple families or golf groups while preserving privacy. Accommodations: 3 large King Suites each with Master Bathrooms, a 'Sea Escape' kids room with 2 sets of bunk beds and a 5th bedroom with a queen bed and a bathroom downstairs. Also downstairs is a Pool Table. The kids can have a blast while you sit on the porch and stargaze, while you review each hole of golf you played earlier, or take in the spectacular ocean views! Sit on the deck or screened porch and catch the sunrise, numerous dolphins at play in the morning or watch at night for the beautiful stars while you listen to the ocean waves crash against the beach and rocks. Our deck and small Tiki Hut ocean side are perfect for sunbathing, watching shrimpers, and beach strollers by day and stars by night.

Paved bicycle, skating or jogging trails traverse the island. Wildlife is abundant. Deer, raccoons, herons, egrets, ospreys and alligators are common sights. Loggerhead turtles lay many nests on Fripp each year. Nature centers on Fripp and nearby Hunting Island provide hours of enjoyable activities on the beaches, in the forests or marshes. Once you arrive, park the car and rent a golf cart for island transportation.

There is Camp Fripp for the kids to get away from the parents for a couple of hours during the day for them to take in other activities, meet other kids, and give Mom and Dad a chance to relax. What a relief for them!

Hollywood has discovered Fripp Island to be fascinating as well. The Ocean Creek and Tidal Marsh areas of Fripp were used as film sets for both Forest Gump and Disney's The Jungle Book!

Jaques Cousteau said that 'Fripp Island is framed by some of the the world's most fertile and pristine salt marshes.

Activities:: (on site or nearby): Biking, Golf, Tennis, Basketball, Gym, Fishing (surf, bottom or deep sea), Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Restaurants, small grocery store, Swimming, Boating, Jet Skiing, Shelling, Rock Climbing Wall, Playgrounds, 'Kids Night Out', Teen activities, Crabbing, Bingo, Hunting Island State Park, Historic Beaufort (a must for civil war buffs) and Parris Island are nearby. A nearby shrimp boat wharf provides fresh shrimp, fish and shellfish. In season local farms sell fresh vegetables.

Words cant describe

  • 5 of 5

As I sit to write this review, I find it extremely difficult to use the right words. We reserved this property for a small family reunion/vacation, 6 adults and 2 kids. There was more than enough space for the 8 of us inside and I would find it hard for any group, no matter the size, to utilize all of the deck space. The interior was nicely done with endless upgrades and the exterior deck was upgraded with a nice composite decking, so no splinters from old beach worn wood in your feet. The house was very kid friendly with games, cards, pool table, and it also had 2 flat screen televisions. There were 2 refrigerators, one upstairs and 1 by the wet bar next to the pool table, so you always had more than enough room to keep your food and beverages cold. Which brings me to my only complaint. The tenant before us must have kept bait in the downstairs refrigerator. The fridge smelled for the first few days and the ice could only be used for the cooler until it cycled through a few times and was wiped clean. Again, there were so many positives I did not even bother the owner. Back to the good. There were 2 high end washers and dryers, so keeping things clean was very easy. Our family loves to cook, we only ate away once, and the kitchen was very well equipped. There were more than enough dishes for serving and just about every utensil one might need was already there. The outdoor shower was a life saver and made it much easier, especially with children, to keep the sand out of the house (there was also a hose next to the stairs that led up from the beach). Next to the hose was a fire pit with your own private tiki hut. I ran the entire beach every morning and did not see another like it. It was very neat and a favorite place to hang out once the sun went down. Most importantly, the location. Perfect. Easy to get everywhere and right on the beach. When you walk through the front door, the first and only thing you see is the ocean due to the wall of windows on the opposite side of the room. They had a Weber grill off the back deck that also faced the ocean, very relaxing when you fill it full of steaks or burgers. The last compliment, because I could go on, goes to the owners. They were always extremely fast to get back in touch with me if I had questions and answered them within 24 hours. I have stayed other places where the paperwork alone was a nightmare. The paperwork was simple, everything was straight forward, and there were no hidde

An Oceanfront Gem on Fripp Island!

  • 5 of 5

Our annual Family Fripp Trip has finally found a permanent home in this absolutely fantastic oceanfront beach house. Last year's wonderful experience at this 5 star accommodation landed us right back for another wonderful week in August and without hestitation we have already secured our time for Summer 2014! Everything about the house is perfect and the renovation is incredible. WIth five bedrooms and four baths, privacy and big space is a dream. The oceanfront view opens into the entire house with just a few steps to the premier beach of Fripp. Fripp is such a special place and this house makes the experience all of the better. Our family says don't hesitate on this one!

The Best House Yet

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed on Fripp Island for the past 8 years, this year was definitely the best! The house has everything you could ever possibly need.... The view off the back deck is amazing and the beach goes on forever. Many times while taking an early morning walk we were the only ones on the beach-doesn't get much better than that. In a word, "PARADISE". We can't wait for our week next year!!!

Absolutely Unbelievable!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming here for many years and each year it's even better than the last! The house is well equipped with everything you could possibly need on a beach vacation. The pictures can't even justify how breath taking the view from of the beach really is! The tiki hut, screened in porch, outdoor shower, and pool table are just a few of the many amenities you get when you stay here! Absolutely love it and it's the perfect house to create long lasting memories at!
